    Work, Birthday, Lunch, Pokemon

    By Derek | February 27, 2020

    Birthday Thursday. (27th)

    Regular work day for me. I didn’t end up taking today off for a couple of reasons. First, with my birthday being in the middle of the week, there was little value in taking a day off, and second, I was sick a couple of weeks ago, and already had to take almost an entire week off this early in the year. 

    Helped our lead engineer on my primary product with a couple of projects this week. I’ve been getting more into the engineering side of things recently on this product, due to some help being needed.

    Jill and our younger son came up to work, and brought me lunch, to sit and eat with me for my birthday. That was nice! 

    After work, headed home, picked up our older son to take him to work, and ended up playing Pokemon Go the entire time he was at work (nearly two hours). 

    We were trying to battle one of the “leaders” Cliff. Man, he’s tough. You have to really understand what his monsters powers are, choose opposing monsters, that are very strong, but have the appropriate powers to defeat his monsters. It took me about 30 battles to figure it out. I finally ended up beating him with MewTwo (Confusion/PsyStrike), Metagross (Bullet Punch/Meteor Mash), and Scizor (Fury Cutter/Iron Head). Jill tried using the same monsters with the same powers to beat him, but she couldn’t do it, even after pumping up her monsters to much higher level (using up all of her monster candy for them, and using a ton of stardust). To be fair, my monsters are more powerful than hers, she would probably fare better if her monsters were stronger. Honestly, I don’t really like this part of the game, because it’s _very_ difficult, but we have “research tasks” to complete to get this done, which are like quests. 

    Anyways, we picked our older sone up from work, took him home, and headed home. 

    I exercised, then ate dinner, then I had to work on a customer’s computer before we went to bed. 

    We didn’t do anything for my birthday, we’ll do that another day.
