The Perfect Millennial Weekend

Hello coffee drinkers and tea toleraters. Just kidding. Even I’m drinking tea tonight! *cue shocked gasps and utterances of “blasphemy!”* I don’t know how many of our readers are millennials, but I’m hoping that it is quite a bit. And, that you’re into the same things I am, because if you are: THIS IS THE PERFECT MILLENNIAL WEEKEND!!!

Let me explain:

A long time ago, in a galaxy called the Milky Way, there was this little planet called Earth. On that planet, these strange animals called humans (homo sapiens sapiens) liked to pretend to catch creatures called Pokemon in these tiny portable video consoles called Gameboys. Specifically, young humans enjoyed this. However, as newer consoles and handheld gaming devices replaced Gameboys, these young humans were no longer able to truly enjoy the thrill of “catching them all.” So, naturally, when these humans grew up, they created a game on their smartphones that allowed them to walk around the planet pretending to catch these creatures. Thus, Pokemon Go was born.

The best part of Pokemon Go is Community Day, a day each month where a specific Pokemon spawns at a high rate for a period of three hours. This weekend featured Bagon, a dragon type Pokemon. If you evolve the Community Day Pokemon within those three hours (or the evolution extension afterward), you get a special move that is exclusive to Community Day. Naturally, you want that move. I’m happy to report that we caught and evolved several.

More importantly, I FINALLY CAUGHT MORE SHINY POKEMON THAN MY BOYFRIEND!! No, the shiny Pokemon aren’t more powerful, but they are differently colored and rare. Guys, my boyfriend has consistently caught more shiny Pokemon than I have since we started dating last year. Not even just on Community Day, either! Literally, I swear, he walks and shiny Pokemon show up. UGHHHHHH!!!!!

The most relatable Disney Villain of them all.

But that’s fine, because today the score was settled.

That’s enough about Pokemon. The real highlight of this weekend is the return of Game of Thrones. If you don’t watch Game of Thrones, trust me. I get it. There’s no such thing as plot armor and everyone you love dies as soon as you get invested. However, if you’ve held on this long, you’re dying to see what happens this season, as it is the final season… and we are officially ahead of the events in the books (yo, George R.R. Martin, we’d appreciate that last book anytime now). We are flying blind, without a literary script that allows us to predict anything that’s going to happen. I can’t tell you much more without spoilers, if you’re not caught up, but OMG do we have some things to sort OUT this season.

Like I said, perfect millennial weekend.

That’s all for tonight. I hope you’re thoroughly enjoying your weekend, millennial or not. As always, thank you for your support. We love seeing new viewers showing up from different countries. A special shout out to our newest viewer in Romania: Welcome! Here’s hoping Romania is much less vampire-infested than legend would make it seem. (If not, let us know if garlic really works.) We are so excited you are here!

On my lips: nothing, I’m just climbing into bed

In my cup: Teavana Craft Iced Tea, Pinapple Berry Blue Herbal Tea (it’s part hibiscus tea, my favorite!)

Welcome to Lipstick Stains and Coffee, our experiment in beating Murphy's Law. I'm Kristen, the founder of this blog. Today, I run the blog with my best friend, Rachel. However, it didn't start out that way. In fact, I founded this blog over a year before we started frequently posting. It sat dormant for a year, between my fear of going public and my uncertainty of where to go with it. Flash forward to March 2019, when I opened up to my best friend about this secret little oasis I'd carved out but never used. Immediately she jumped on board, we brainstormed a plan, and we got started. Finally, Lipstick Stains and Coffee is a little oasis not only for us, but hopefully for all of our readers. Enjoy that cup of coffee, lovely. You deserve it.

  1. I actually never played the original Pokemon games when I was young, my brother’s did though. Maybe I thought I was a little to old for that “kid stuff”. In recent years though I have indeed found myself playing GO. I do enjoy it as if I was a kid playing it, I remember one of the first few times I played was the very first community day event they had. And I cought my first ever shiny Dratini, for those of you who know it evolves into a pretty big dragon called Dragonite and this one has a pretty neat trick because it’s an event pokemon. Draco Meteor, what a move if I do say so myself. And I got to spend that day riding around in the back seat talking to the prettiest, smartest, wittiest girl I have ever met to date lol and that made it even more special to me.
    So yes, Pokemon Go does have a special place in my heart lol

    But as for your poems being politically correct has become a major problem, I see it every day. People afraid to step on someone’s toes and sacrificing morals, intelligence, individually opinions to over accommodate something that should not even be entertained. People do it, we do it on a daily basis.
    If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.

    Rachel, I think yours and Kristen’s share a similar thought today. Just like being politically correct, we are often over complicated. I see that all the time as well, “consumers” come into where I work, self medicated, over medicated or under medicated or even miss medicated. Some medications “correct” one probable and then create another, or simply render a person little more than a flopping pile of bones contained in a human skin sack.

    I can’t say what the answer is but I know there has to be a better way, I see way too many people in situations they should not me in. Kids that get turned into sloths because they act like kids and have lots of energy. Maybe it’s a bit of a sore subject for me but there has to be a better way.

  2. I definitely agree with the over medicating kids part, and how many medication regimens become a cycle where the next med treats a symptom from the previous medication. The illness I was discussing there doesn’t strictly require medication. I have been offered opiods for it when I was younger than this. I am glad I had the sense to say no.

    P.S. Dragonite is pretty cool.
