I haven't played in a good long while, and when I did, I never ran into the "out of Pokeballs" issue... but I never ran into a Lapras either, and everything else is accurate.

Does this mean I should have been given fashion worksheets in elementary school? All that "circle the verb, underline the predicate, and draw a triangle over the subject" crap was bad enough, I can't imagine what it would have been like if I'd been tested on what should and should not be worn after Labor Day.

It almost seems the level of editorial slams and investigative reporting at the WaPo is conjuring the ghost of regime-changing Republican Presidential scandals past. It is a tide that has been rising at the WaPo for some months now, and perhaps they...

Story
Tagline
Vegan, atheist, liberal, teetotaler, and proud geek!
Introduction
My full name is Elizabeth Mary Lowry.  I am a vegan, a teetotaler, and a proud geek.

I was born in Fort Ord, CA and attended kindergarten in Oahu, HI.  I started first grade in Virginia Beach, VA, where my dad finally got stationed permanently - he was in the Navy and didn't retire until I started college.

I earned B.S. degrees in Physics (Honors Scholar) and Computer Science (In Honors) at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA, graduating (Summa Cum Laude for both majors) in May of 2009.  I've finished all the coursework for my M.S. in Computer Science - I just need to finish revising my thesis...

I interned at Microsoft in Redmond, WA over the summer of 2007 and at Google in Mountain View, CA over the summer of 2009.  I worked at Zynga in San Francisco, CA on the Cafe World team from mid-July of 2010 to early January of 2011.  I worked for Amazon.com in Seattle, WA from early April of 2011 to early January of 2013.

From 2013 to 2015, I am currently attended the Game Programming course at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment's Seattle campus.  During my second year, I also briefly interned at MythTech, working on the game SolTera.

After graduating, I started work at Kaio Interactive.  I now make games and apps, and I'm doing interesting things with augmented reality.
