I always thought the third tier evolutions for the starters were moronic looking and moronic acting in the show.
Did he ever bring his Bulbasaur into Venusaur? I honestly don't remember, but I'm pretty sure he didn't. So the only starter, from the original, was Charizard. And he had no reason to act like such a douche, other than being entirely awesome. I was happy when he finally got his comeuppance and left at that one Charizard sanctuary. I think the only other pokemon that was consistently an ass to Ash was Mankey/Primate. And he just wanted his hat.

The only other pokemon starter that I remember Ash getting and evolving all the way was Treeco, and he was just super smooth and cool all the way through.

You still met the other max evolutions and they were pretty wacko themselves.

I stopped watching after it started going into the other pokemon games outside of Red, Blue, and Yellow. So I only ever saw Charizard as the fully evolved starter. All others were left in their starter stage.

I just started working after about two years unemployed doing my own thing. The worst thing with work is waking up early!

I didn't go two years, but I know the feeling. Just be glad you aren't a baker like my first job was. Don't get me wrong, I loved the job. Delicious application of chemistry is the best application of chemistry (excluding explosions). But man, getting up at 3am makes it really hard to have any sort of social life. You don't line up in schedule with ANYONE. 1st shifters get off work at 2pm and generally hang out at 5pm so you have two hours overlap with them. 2nd shift is at work while you are off work and off work while you are asleep. 3rd shift is at work while you are asleep and off work while you are at work. It just plain sucks. You hang out with other bakers or sit around playing video games with the Oceania crowd. I played a ton of EVE back then.

Don't be a baker. Trust me.

I've been getting up at 5:30am this year to get to work by 7am. Been doing the whole work thing for 3 years now. I did have a job that required me to be there at 6am during the summers. Getting up at 5am starts to grow on you after a while.

I've to get up at 4 am to go to work at 6 am to prep food. I thought I was gonna just be one of those that would get into work around when the store opens but the guy wants me to be in charge of a juice bar. It's pretty basic, make juices, but I've a hard time sleeping so I'm pretty nervous about that. Especially cause by just doing 9 am to 5:30  pm makes me have to sleep around 10 pm.  And then some shifts will be from 2 pm to 10:30. :( I'm just gonna sleep to work every day lol.

Well damn, I wake up at 9:30AM and I though that was early. I don't have to be in until 4:30PM though, and I probably work until later than you people stay up. I only wake up so early so I can go to the gym and stuff before work since getting out around 12AM doesn't really leave all that much time for anything.

Man... forget Baker's... don't ever do shift work! I once did a job where I had changing shift's each week, but only ever found out what my weekly shift was... on the Thursday the week before. So I could *never ever* plan anything, organize events ahead of schedule, sign up for events, etc because I never knew what I'd be doing. Alos the shift times were all over the place... some week's I'd work all morning, afternoon or evening shifts, but other weeks I'd have mixed shifts. Mixed shifts were the WORST... one day I'd have an evening shift with the next day being a morning shift... with 9 hours between shifts. GAH!

The perks of having a job with set hours for the most part. I'd rather start work earlier and have a good portion of the afternoon off and evenings free. I'm more of an early bird than some people though.

2-2-3 rotating work schedules are annoying. Even ignoring the inherent 12 hour workday.

It does for the most part. We are missing some of our staples, like cosy, but there are others of us here. Though this place is as hopping as GWGuru was. Little bit slower. Nice to see you stopping by as well. Been quite some time.

After building up good karma for the past few weeks (I've been super good) my phone falls out of my pocket on the bus and the bus drives off with it. Finally caught the bus but was unable to find my phone (best case scenario it fell somewhere I couldn't find it, worst case, someone took it). All because I went to the stupid mall with my friends in which I only ended up buying a $4 toothbrush. I turned on the lost iPhone feature but idk....


Fingers crossed I find my phone.

(Also whoever changed my title, Haha very funny)
