I know, I have been super lax at blogging recently. The reason for my absence from the blogosphere is twofold; partly because I suck at life and partly mainly due to my obsession with Pokemon. Playing through Pokemon Red reinvigorated my love for Pokemon so I then purchased a shiny new (second hand from eBay) Nintendo 3DS and a copy of one of the latest games in the series, Pokemon X. Most of my free time, much to my girlfriend's chagrin, has been consumed with my mission to catch 'em all in the Kalos region. I fucking love Pokemon.

It was my birthday on Saturday. My 27th. Part of me thinks that 27 years olds probably shouldn't be so obsessed with Pokemon, but a bigger part of me thinks "Fuck it. I do what I want", and you can probably guess which part I listen to most. Saturday night was a rather messy affair. I drank a shit load of cider/jager/sambuca and Drunk Martin thought it would be hilarious to fall over/roll around on the floor a lot, so I am sporting some rather painful injuries at the moment. I really dislike Drunk Martin sometimes. 

I got a tattoo voucher from Erin, so I am finally going to lose my tattoo virginity within the next three months! Yay! I am going to get an image of favourite Pokemon! I jest, I jest, I'm not that obsessed (Ha! That rhymes, kinda). I do know someone who has Pokemon tattoos though. No, I am going to get a line from Against Me! song The Ocean on my forearm - There Is An Ocean In My Soul - I just need to figure out what kind of script I want. I fucking love Against Me!

Last night I watched Midnight In Paris and this morning I bought Zelda Fitzgerald's novel 'Save Me The Waltz' and Hemmingway's 'To Have & Have Not' with an Amazon voucher that I also got for my birthday. I fucking love books.

I apologise for this post being so short, but Pokemon don't catch themselves, you know! LOVEYOUBYE


  1. BOUT DAMN TIME you got a tattoo. Geeeeeeeeeeze.
    This reminds me, I never did beat Diamond... TIME TO START OVER AGAIN.

    Also, I read today that the reason you can't catch Mew without taking advantage of glitches, is that he was added at the end. The got rid of some debugging, and there was only cartridge space for him as a character, not enough to also have a way to catch him. Boourns.

    Oh, and one last thing: HAAAHH YOU'RE OLD.

  2. Welcome to the dark side, Martin.
    Tattoos are a great idea- pics when you get it done!

  3. OHMYGAWD Pokemon! I had Blue and Silver and my brother had Red and Gold and we played them on our Nintendo Gameboys obsessively for years. Now I'm feeling tempted to dig around in my closet and find them and start all over again...except I already have too many things distracting me, so I probably shouldn't add my Gameboy back into the mix, haha.

    Also, welcome to 27! It's...a year. Sigh. Excited to read about/possibly see your tattoo! I've been experiencing a little tattoo fever lately, even though I initially had a weird love/hate relationship with mine and regretted it almost immediately after I got it, I still want more for some reason. We shall see.


  4. Happy birthday! (a little late) I was never super into Pokemon but I did have some Pokemon cards to draw when I was younger, and then played Blue later on. I was (and still am) all about Legend of Zelda. Good luck catching 'em all though.
