covid-adjacent, pokemon, silly
I think Koffing is supposed to look like a magnified grain of dust or pollen...but it looks an awful lot like a coronavirus, too.
I don't have a clever caption for this one, but thought it was cool that I caught the Croagunk *right there* while trying to decide what to do with the frog statue.
Incidentally, the frog statue is a Pokestop. And so is the historical cabin in the Sneasel picture.
Turtwig has found a new friend.
(I had such a hard time trying to get it to face the right direction, which is why it's still a little bit off. At least I didn't need to worry about the real turtle wandering away while I set up the shot.)
Sneasel is disappointed that the museum is closed.
Why, Windows? Why would you even OFFER to eject the system disk?
Should I be concerned that this strategy sort of makes sense?
Winderbourne Mansion "is currently abandoned and has no plans of restoration. The site is a photographer’s dream. The property is nine acres with several old muscle cars in the backyard, along with sprawling trees and flowers. It is also located right up against Black Hills regional park with a great view of the water. The interior of the house is littered with old furniture, letters, magazines, and clothes."
I mean, look at this UI: The selections look like just labels, not buttons, both have the same width border, same background, same size, and the ONLY difference is that one border is gray and the other is black.
And then I didn't look closely enough during checkout because I was already stressed out and rushed. (RTS: don't buy things online when you're in too much of a hurry to double check the checkout.) No shipping charge, so 🤷♂️
And then the email & website said NOTHING about the medium.
