On July 15th of this year, I will celebrate 17 years of being married to my best friend.
I was 18 and he was 21 on our wedding day.
We had been dating 4 years, since I was 14. So, he was my only boyfriend (real boyfriend). I knew he was going to propose 6 months in and I knew he didn’t have much money, so I begged him for a really simple ring: half carat diamond on a simple silver band. Yellow gold does not flatter me, because I have Asian ancestry and my skin tone is yellowish. I REALLY didn’t want yellow gold. So, of course, he spent 4 times what he could afford, got himself neck deep in debt, and bought a huge ring with an art deco starburst of tiny diamonds and a half carat in the middle. It was beautiful, and very, very yellow gold.
In 17 years, I’ve worn it maybe 5 times. I hate it. He knows I hate it. He resents that I hate it. I still won’t wear it.
So, a week ago we vacationed in Disneyworld and I mentioned that Disney has a ring inspired by Beauty and the Beast that I absolutely love ❤. We looked for it, but the shops in the parks didn’t carry it. So, he went online, found it and re-proposed to me with it today.
Sorry for the long story.
I wanted to give all you romantics out there hope.
True love ❤ is out there and I hope every single one of you finds it.
Rating Of Every Raichu Sprite From Main Series Pokemon Games
Detailed for what limited pallets the gameboy had back than, slightly minamalist and simplistic in design as all gen 1 Pokemon are. I respect this elder regardless for his original design. 9/10
A PERFECT BOY!! Look at that expression full of excitement! I wish we could have seen more of this quality Raichu in this game. 10/10
Designers, c’mon now. This isn’t fair. You can’t just make me choose between TWO sprites to rate!! But if I have to choose, than I prefer 1st sprite. He’s fat, powerful and that expression on his face just screams of smugness. The second Raichu, however, seems to have more mischievous expression rather than aggression. Both receive a 7/10.
Not as fat, but I do like his “PUT EM UP, SCRUB” pose. 9/10
He’s finally relaxed, he’s no longer in constant attack mode! I’m so proud of him of his comfort around others! 11/10
I am concerned for his sudden shift in weight gain, but as long as he feels comfortable with his weight however, than so do I. Now there’s just more of this big boy to hug. 9/10
What a joyful expression! An improvement to the previous 2nd gen sprites. I trust him. 10/10.
Another quality sprite! This one takes inspiration from the mid animation frame from 4th gen, I see! I appreciate the reference. Also, look at the those LEGS! 9/10
Not much detail, and I miss his expressions and pose. He’s happy with his transcendence to 3D but I miss the little details. :( 5/10
NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!! The happiest boy I’ve ever seen. Unratable, to put a number on his perfection would be a crime. He’s not quite as chubby however, but he must be light enough to fit on his tail. Still enjoys a Malasada every now and than. Finally gets his time in spotlight with his new found psychic powers away from the popularity of Pikachu. He’s even got his own Z-move! Good job, little buddy on your rise to stardom!
Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.
