I mentioned last entry how I was being slowly embraced by this cold, yeah? Well, I ended up losing my voice Thursday night, so Friday I was forced to call in sick. I always feel super guilty calling out, but once the call is out of the way I tend to get really excited and enjoy the day. Unexpected day off, yeah!
The day amounted to much Pokemon time, where I spent tons of time maxing out my main team's affection levels on Amie, and tearing through a couple gyms (3, 4, and 5 seemed super close together considering how spaced out 1, 2, and 3 felt!). Yay!
I also watched a bunch of episodes of The Game Chasers
, which almost feels like a guilty pleasure more than anything else. It's shot like a reality show and follows two guys who go retro game hunting at pawn shops and flea markets and stuff, and is a lot more entertaining than you would think. The two hosts and the small cast of reoccurring guests are real characters (that Dodongo guy....Jesus), the show is full of sarcasm and reoccurring jokes, and the editing and production is surprisingly good. It's not exactly high brow stuff, but it's the kind of thing that's fun to marathon a few episodes of before bed when your brain is slowly shutting off. As reality TV goes.
Anyway, it's Saturday morning now and my voice is in much better shape! Hurrah! Now off to tackle a full day of kids class presentations, singing with preschoolers, and conversation lessons with adults! Hope my voice can survive!
