    And finally responding back!

    I did go through the Great Designer Search and got massacred by the multiple choice test, which was unfortunate but also expected. I've lost pretty much all of my multichoice mojo since leaving high school and not having to take that sort of test all the time. I guess I'm going to have to go out resume shlepping like a normal person if I want to find work, sigh.

    Nice, I like the inspiration for Rica's name! "Rica" also just means "rich" in Spanish (Costa Rica = rich coast), so thanks for sending me the money aron, I guess! I did go to both Costa Rica and Africa, so the place name symbolism works well, too. And feel free to start that meta thread whenever... I'll probably not be much around until May, but I'll definitely take a look once I start revving up on ASB again!

    Big congrats on finding work!! And it's great that you found somewhere that sounds like it'd work much better for you--I hope it's turned out to be as positive an experience as you were hoping for. How's it been going? Have you found any cool things to do or groups to hang out with in the new place you ended up in? And/or have you been working more on your art or other personal projects?

    Oh yeah, there are definitely ways to spin world travel positively without emphasizing the planning or organization bit, heh. It's true, sprinting through the airport is a pretty invigorating experience! Not personally my cuppa, though. I prefer my travel anxiety to be more along the lines of, but will I actually be able to bring myself to eat this weird bug? (Alas, I wussed out and did not eat the weird bug. My reputation as an omnivore is ruined.)

    As far as I know water monitors aren't poisonous, although I think their bites can be pretty nasty. I did take that picture, but I wasn't all that close--probably about three yards away? That's just my camera zoom doing work. I did see people get quite close to them, and they generally seemed pretty chill. I can't believe this one stuck its tongue out at just the right time for the picture!

    Re: snakes: Well, you are a pokémon fan, after all... you pretty much always have that temptation to go into the long grass, don't you? ;)

    I hope you enjoyed the last of your funemployed freedom whether it meant travel or not! I'll let you know if I'm ever planning another grand tour.

    Thanks! I will get to your longer message later, but yes! I had a great time on my birthday.

    That's fine, as long as you're keeping it in mind.

    Welll, it's a bit disingenuous to call it "job stuff" since it's such an outside chance and it's not likely that I'll beat out 3,000 other people for one internship position, but I'm participating in Wizards of the Coast's Great Designer Search 3! Most likely my commitment there is going to come to an end tomorrow when I get axed in the multiple choice test qualifier, but at least for the moment I can say I'm working on it. :P

    Anyway I added you to the referee list; no idea how that got overlooked earlier, sorry!

    You're welcome for Venus, and thank you very much for Rica! It's kind of weird how I haven't acquired an aron already; I love the evolution line, and they're great in ASB.

    That's an interesting idea for an ASB feature! I was kind of confused at first because I read "Safari Zone" and thought of the forum game here and thought for a second you were proposing some kind of crossover event, heh. I think it sounds like a solid idea, and my only questions would be the implemenation details, you mentioned like, do people get money in exchange for turning over their old pokémon? How much would the recaptured pokémon cost? Etc.

    Why don't you make a thread in ASB Meta about it to see if there's general interest and get the details hammered out?
