Excited for Smash hype even though I still don't have a Switch. :'(

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Join me, I still don't have one yet either.

Can I join too? I don't have a Switch either.

I too wish to join this lacking a Switch club. Currently I'm saving up some money every week for that Pinkie Pie anime figure so I can immediately preorder it when that's up (who knows how long that'll be given we only have the initial announcement with the artwork so far, but once I'm done with that, I'll start saving up for a Switch.

Petition to start our own forum of people who want to be excited for Smash but don't have Switches?

(I could totally afford one but anime figures are expensive okay)

Honestly, you're the cautionary tale for me as to why I shouldn't start collecting figures. :P I've been on the fence about buying a Kanato, but the amount of money you've spent on figures keeps me at bay 'cause I know I'd end up also spending huge amounts of money.

I won a Switch game (Mario/Rabbids) but every time I plan on getting a Switch I change my mind later on, still have a giant backlog of media though.

I mean, so long as I manage a budget it's not like I'm burning a hole in my pocket. I make roughly 900 a month, after expenses I have about 200 spending/savings money a month. A figure every ~3 months barely makes a dent. It would only become troublesome if I poured money into my gaming hobby moreso and got back into console gaming which would cost significantly more than figures do, both in time and money.

Also I'm sure Info has more than quintupled my figure expenses, he's been at it far longer than I have.

Since when has that been considering cheating? The home-field advantage really was only effective in college football video games.

So on Monday I went to the Goodwill and found two G1 ponies - Baby Tiddley-Winks and Forget-Me-Not. These girls were both caked in dirt (Tiddley-Winks especially) and Baby Tiddley-Winks also had tail rust. It really just looked like someone had straight up buried them in dirt.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

So I used a Magic Eraser as I do on all my thrifted ponies to clean them up. Another thing I always do when I thrift ponies is wash and condition their hair, so I did that as well. It was pretty annoying getting the clumps of dirt out of Baby Tiddley-Winks' hair. With more dirty ponies that I get my hands on, I also like to clean them with soap as well (before doing the conditioner).

Here they are after the Magic Eraser and hair conditioning:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

As you can see on both sides of Baby Tiddley-Winks, and on the right side of Forget-Me-Not, the dirt left some stains on them, it must have been there for a long time, the poor girls!

Beyond that, these girls had/have a couple other issues. Baby Tiddley-Winks had some tail rust, which given how dirty she was on the outside, I was not surprised at all to find she was dirty on the inside. Forget-Me-Not on the other hand, being relatively clean on the outside aside from some smaller dirt spots, was also clean on the inside as well. Baby Tiddley-Winks also has a scratch on her right symbol, I haven't decided if I'm going to try painting over it or if I'll leave it as it. I'll likely leave it alone as it's a pretty minor issue that isn't very distracting. Forget-Me-Not had her hair braided, which I undid. I'll have to try to straighten out her hair to get the waves out that the braids left in. And while she was tail rust free, the metal clamp of the ponytail holder keeping her mane's braids together (I had taken out the ponytail holder that was in her tail before I even bought her) had rusted, leaving a rust stain on her mane. Hopefully I can get that out.

Monday night I had removed Baby Tiddley-Winks' head to make sure it wouldn't give me any issues when I wanted to fix her tail rust. Sometimes G1 ponies' heads end up fusing to their bodies, making getting their heads off a pain in the ass. When I fixed up my Dancing Butterflies' tail rust, I had to use a knife to cut through some of the plastic as it was fused a little bit. In the case of my Skydancer, her neck plug was so fused to her body that it broke entirely and I had to cut it out, then when it came time to put her head back on, had to super glue it since there was no head plug anymore. Thankfully while Baby Tiddley-Winks' head was a bit of a pain to remove, but I managed by poking the bits of plastic that had fused, just with one of those little things that you use to clean under fingernails.

Moving on to today, I decided to tackle Baby Tiddley-Winks' tail rust issue. Since I had already broken her neck seal previously, it was already easy to remove her head again.

Here's what she looked like before I fixed the tail rust:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

So to fix tail rust, you have to remove the tail (of course), take the metal washer off of the tail and throw the thing away (obviously you wouldn't want to put back on the rusted washer that caused the issue in the first place!). Then you wet the tail and scrub away at it with toothpaste and a toothbrush, to get the stain from the rust out. In the case of Baby Tiddley-Winks, she had really bad tail rust so I had to spend a good five minutes getting the clumps of rust out of her tail before I could even start using the toothpaste. After scrubbing the tail, then I scrubbed the inside of her body and head, using the toothbrush for the majority of it, and using pipe cleaners and Q-Tips to reach the insides of the legs and ears.

Here are the after photos!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Now she's all nice and clean inside! Her tail still has a bit of a stain, hopefully I can get that out some other way. But it certainly looks much better than it did before. Of course, I'm still not done with cleaning up Baby Tiddley-Winks! She's still stained on the outside, as is Forget-Me-Not, to a much lesser extent. I should be able to fix that with an OxiClean boil, although I don't have any OxiClean at the moment so I can't do it today. I would like to see if I can go to the store later today, and do the OxiClean boil on these two girls on Friday (I have work tomorrow so I wouldn't have time then). I've never done an OxiClean boil before, so I'm excited to try it for the first time! I'm really excited to see how pretty these girls will look when I'm finished restoring them!

After going on about how dirty Baby Tiddley-Winks' was (and still is with those stains), there is one thing about her condition that is really, really good. Her hair is still pink. She has a color of pink for her hair that collectors call "fading pink", due to how it easily fades to white when exposed to too much direct sunlight. I have a lot (and I mean a lot) of ponies with this hair color whose hair has either gotten to a point where it's faded to a much lighter shade of pink, or it's faded to white completely. You can dye the hair to make it pink again though, which I need to do to a lot of my ponies eventually. But somehow with Baby Tiddley-Winks, despite all that dirt she was caked in, despite all the rust that was inside of her, her hair is miraculously still pink, and not a lighter-than-original pink either, it looks like it's never been in contact with direct sun for any period of time, which given that the dirt would have implied she was played with outside, honestly baffles me. Did the kid who had her bring dirt into the house and play with her like that? If she was played with outside you'd think she'd have faded hair. Though maybe she really was buried in dirt, and therefore the sun couldn't get to her?

Speaking of white hair, if you're wondering, Forget-Me-Not's hair isn't faded, she's a pony who just has white hair.

So, due to my unending excitement for the new Smash game, I just kinda felt like making a list of all the possible new characters/characters that I want that I think are interesting to talk about. This isn't a list of EVERY character that everyone thinks is likely, just the ones I have something to say about. I'll go through each one and talk about the likelihood of them making it in, and my interest in them getting in

CHARACTERS THAT ARE LIKELY

Spyro is somewhat possible (3rd party characters tend to be iconic mascot characters), but not super likely considering he's basically been irrelevant for years now

Ivysaur was cool, I liked that his uair launched him down and his dair launched him up, it was a unique property (also I know Project M doesn't really count as a main Smash game, but I also thought the Hyper Beam thet gave him was cool as fuck)

If I may add, Amateratsu from Okami may be an interesting choice too.
Ammy would be awesome, but unfortunately I can't realistically see it considering she's not really relevant or highly requested

(Also if she makes it in, that lessens Midna/Wolf Link's chances <_<)

On Spyro, it all depends on when the Spyro Trilogy gets remastered.
As for Ammy, they did announce the Okami HD edition on Switch on the same direct as the Switch announcement...

Have you spoken to a therapist and/or doctor about depression? And how long has it been since it's flared up?

I'm in poor health, but good spirits. I'm looking for another job 'cause my current job pays peanuts. Basically, I need a placeholder job that actually works as a placeholder job. After that, I could maybe figure out what I'm gonna do long-term, employmentwise. The sucky thing is almost any job seems difficult 'cause of my health (physical labor jobs are almost impossible and it makes customer service harder too, which I'm not good at anyway), but such is life :-\

We hope you feel better soon. We hope you find you another job too.

Sorry to hear about your health. :( I've actually had a lot of health problems in the past few months or so as well, so I can empathize, although thankfully my issues are on their way to being under control. I had to stop going to classes for a couple of weeks, though.

Good luck to you on finding a job! I hope you land something better soon.

Thanks.

Man... I want it to be April 2nd already! Just a few more weeks....

Why?

Just got back from TRU!

Sorry for the late reply, pones.

I have an upcoming job at Amazon. I go to orientation tomorrow and then I start working at the warehouse the day after. I'm going to be a "sortation associate," which means doing things like sorting packages according to zip code. On all nights but one I'm going to be working till close to 4, so I'm going to start "being Luna" again.
