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!!!!!
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!)
