Hey guys, I'm the OP of this FML. I was playing XD- Gale of Darkness, one of my favourites. Alas there is no 'elite 4' as such in the Orre region, I was in the middle of catching a rare Wooper at a PokeSpot which I could have traded for an awesome Larvitar. Sigh. Rich world problems, I know. And yes, shock horror, I am a female that plays Pokemon, le gasp. And also I do play old-school Mario and stuff, I've been a Nintendo fangirl ever since I was little, occasionally migrating to other consoles to play things like Skyrim (No CoD for me though, thank you very much. Blegh.)

Well OP would just have to bank on the fact that her mom probably plays farmville on fb cuz she knows next to nothing about computers if u simply unplug the router and plug it back in she will never know and u can blame it on something crazy like sunspots, microwaves, or bad connections to satellites sometimes. But I hate when parents stop the gaming it sucks
Walk over and power down her computer! (Though I can't promise you won't get in trouble)
Uninstall her FarmVille app and tell her you think it's shameful that she spends x amount of time growing imaginary crops.
147 & everyone else - my school: 90% gamers, Very free thought, Extremely artsy, so liberal we had to check ourselves when some kid wrote a republican poem for our poetry slam and everyone got annoyed, so open to gays you'd honestly be surprised, our art dept. took over and painted the bathrooms last year, there is a Huge manga & anime club, a majority of the teachers are gamers, girls wander around in cat ears and gamer T-shirts, cons are Huge, and and this us a high school aka marriage is legal with 1/2 the girls, also steampunk community :) (and think about this, if we're so open about sexual orientation we're probably pretty open just plain sexually) So show of hands, who wishes they lived around here?
So has this officially become the new Pokemon-lovers dating site? :) Don't be so sure that those girls don't exist around you. Most people at my school had no idea how much of a gamer nerd I was until Skyrim came out and we had something to talk about. Ha. Just 'cause it's not obvipus doesn't mean they don't exist! ;)
Can we say hipocrite anyone? I would've unplugged her computer and ranted to her about how shameful it is to have a mother who us hooked on farmville. Seems pretty fair to me.

Pokemon may be lame but it's not as if Farmville is any better, at least her daughter is 17 shes gotta be at least twice that so who is the real loser here?
#10, if I knew you in real life, I would slap you. The Pokemon series was a part of my childhood and it was a VERY important part of it! Never EVER call Pokemon lame...except if you are talking about the new TV Series, that's pretty lame. Replacing the sidekick characters every 2 or 3 series? No. Brock, Misty and Ash FTW!!
I don't like Pokemon or Farmville, big whoop, I compared them as two games I don't care about. Why you people care about that is beyond me, spend some time deployed over seas and you'd realize why I don't see games as a priority. But thats just ME, no need to get all defensive over your little game addiction.
Airman, my husband had been deployed. Hrs on his second tour now. Army 11B real shot ya know. Oddly enough I send him care packages with pokemon games and movies. Soooo your deployment doesn't have anything to do with it. You act like people don't have spare times over there. Man up and stop using military as a crutch because you're being attacked.
@ Air No, you weren't comparing them as two games you don't like. You typed "You can't see farmville as lame and not pokemon" which, translated, literally said, "If you think Farmville is lame then you should think pokemon is lame as well." That says that you were comparing the two games to each other, not just listing them as games you did not like. Say what you mean, mean what you say, and learn basic communication skills.
