Exam also got faux pas wan.

I must be socially retarded. Either that or I am suffering social phobia along with avoidant personality disorder, compounded by dyspraxia. In other words, I get nervous in front of big crowds, I think everyone hates me and I'm clumsy.

Another paper today, PL3232 Biological Psychology. It was open-book and I managed not to knock any of my papers off the desk, yay. Finished in about an hour, sat there a while checking, added in one line and modified another, waited for the correction fluid to dry, read through it one more time and decided to scarper before they announced that we couldn't leave the hall. I thought it was 30 minutes before the end but it's actually 15 minutes. No matter, I wanted to come back and nap anyway.

I piled all my things into my arms, picked up my bag (that's the advantage of sitting at the side, you're right next to baggage deposit) and made my way to the front. I couldn't see very clearly, so I put my yellow answer book on the pile of yellow answer books. What I failed to check was if those were USED answer books (i.e. other people's answers) or just plain empty answer books (for those who needed more paper). Gah. Well I assume that was the right pile, since it was smack in the middle of the invigilators' table and right in front. And the lecturer didn't tell me to put it anywhere else.

Probably the biggest mistake was to hand him my question paper, on which I had scribbled some notes. I didn't know if I had to return the paper - some ask you to, and some don't - so I decided to just hand it back, I didn't really want it anyway. I did mean to ask if it had to be returned, but since he took it, fine. I bet he's having a good time reading it, invigilating can be so boring. It's not as though I wrote anything nasty or embarrassing on it, unless my scribbled notes turn out to be totally off the mark. I did write "Hooray." on my Abnormal Psychology paper, right next to the words "End Of Paper". Geddit? Hahaha.

Please please please let me have put my paper on the correct pile. I don't want to be responsible for holding up everyone else in the hall while the invigilators search for that one missing paper. The karmic guilt would be immense.

Bad parenting

How does a Young Mimitchi end up being a Memetchi adult? I'm so disappointed!

My Tarakotchi Colin and Mametchi Marie had twin daughters who were both Kinakomatchi, then one became an Ichigotchi and the other a Young Mimitchi. I thought I had a good chance at getting another Mimitchi but no, it became a big-headed sparkly-eyed Memetchi! Gaaaah.

Maybe I should feed them less, I keep offering them food all the time. Let's see if Mametchi Melia can raise a Mimitchi child. I bet Memetchi Delia will make a lousy match and raise some weird-ass character. *frowns at Delia*

Tamagotchi Flowers

I saw something I never expected to see on a Tamagotchi.

Well first, it's confirmed that Mametchis and Mimitchis can be both male and female, despite their girly names and appearances. My Darcy turned out to be a good Mametchi father, and now his son Colin is a Young Mimitchi, so it appears that characters are independent of sex.

A really cute thing I saw Colin do was gardening. He was a Kinakomatchi, and he was bobbing next to a flowerpot with 2 flowers coming out of it. Perhaps because he had no friends and no items, so he had to keep himself occupied by gardening... dunno. Anyway I started up the other Tamagotchi today, but for some reason they can't connect so I think I'll pause Colin until the other one catches up age-wise.

Colin was gardening again today, it was the cutest thing. Young Mimitchis are really the cutest characters, and this one had flowers! I didn't manage to get a picture, however.

I've caught the stink-waves from the babies in time to put them on the potty, but I forget if it happens with the older characters. However, I don't think it affects their hygiene habits since Darcy still turned out to shower and brush his teeth every day. It'd be fun if they did, I want to see what their toilet bowls look like. I've seen them yawn, it rather looks as though they're belching instead. They turn to the side and a little black cloud flies out of their mouth. Um.

I think it's safe to say I'm the only pixel-pet enthusiast on campus right now. Heck, I saw the TamaPlus Keitai at my comic book store and had to be physically restrained from buying one. Interaction with the Internet! Extra characters! More features and games! But it has that silly plastic faux antenna on the side, which is totally unnecessary since it has no function whatsoever. I shall be content with my Pink and Blue.
