So hey, quick state of the nation: I'm living at home for the summer, working the museum beat with filing at the clinic filling my free time. Looking forward to an election for the first time in my life, even though I'm betting that nothing will change. I will a little upset if the first Canadian government to ever be held in contempt of Parliament wins a majority only a few months later! And also I kind of think that Tory policies are generally pretty not awesome, especially when they have to do with going prorogue and putting the good of their party over the nation, their bizarre hatred of statistics, and being otherwise unpleasant in time-wasting ways.

Of course I don't really know which party I actually do support, so I guess I need to sort that out probably. I can't shake the belief that any other party would be just as bad in their own way, so we need a minority government in order for them to balance each other out (and also fail to accomplish anything in a timely manner, but no change is better than negative changes as far as I'm concerned).

Also hey, my sister bought me a paid LJ account, which is exciting! I promptly realized that I have no idea what real people use for icons. My first instinct was to just upload a big pile of super jittery gifs because I hate my eyes and everyone else's, but I guess I ended up just dumping neat icons all over the place and if I find something better I can always go ahead and change things up. I don't even know when this thing expires. I don't even know how to know when this thing expires. But that's cool, I am okay with a bit of unpredictability.

Joined [community profile] entanglement_rp as Tavros. He is being adopted by a genetically modified robodolphin from a sci-fi novel, so that's pretty much every kind of awesome. I am lone canon warrioring it up in there, so uh if anyone feels like dumping a HS kid or troll in there, that would be pretty cool. It is not a big thing, either, though; playing him on his own is fun enough as it is so far. I think I am not very good at it yet, but I will get used to it eventually.

Elsewhere, I had a terrible rap-off, roleplayed a moving duet between Gamzee and Tavros, and somehow convinced a Karkat to tell Tavros a bedtime story. I will probably copy/paste some excerpts and things some time because it was kind of fun and hilarious.

SPOILERS FOR ALL OF HOMESTUCK Apr. 7th, 2011 @ 02:38 am
Um. So I set out to put my understanding of Tavros' relationships with his fellow trolls down on paper since I'm planning on trying to RP him, and it got really, really long. Stupidly long.

So, ok. Let's do this from the top of the hemospectrum to the bottom.

Dangit. I suddenly want to make a Kadabra character using the username nurskcolc.

It is even more deplorable than [personal profile] lookouthalifax. Sure, it doesn't make light of the deaths of hundreds, but it's a genuinely terrible joke. The pokedex says that Kadabra make clocks run backwards just by being near them. "Clocks run" backwards is "nurskcolc". Why do I want to make this.

I really ought to be locked away. I hardly roleplay anymore. Why is this character cruising around my head like he owns the place and why is he attached to such an abominable username. I need to produce something better.

Yearly Meme 2009! Feb. 5th, 2010 @ 12:17 am
You know, I forgot to do that meme where you list the first bit of every post from each month of the previous year. Last year I managed to do it on the twenty-seventh of January or something like that. This year, it's February fifth. At this rate, I expect I'll be filling this out in March 2015.

So, here goes.

The Yearly Meme: Go to your LJ Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2008. Post the first line (or such) of it in your journal.

January:
Guh, it was dumb to think I'd have free time for internet things over the break! :o But I had a lovely awesome couple weeks there.
Proof that I never learn if you ever needed it.

February:
egahoaegw okay, a letter from me to the head of the religious studies department at the university, to be delivered on Monday. Any opinions on it? Should I remove my ragetalics?
I still get all crabby when I remember her. I can't believe someone would push their own agenda so blatantly in an unrelated class.

Go on, eibborn, your life is very interesting to me. )

In other news, I finally dropped Mewtwo at [livejournal.com profile] dramadramaduck. I think it was just a bunch of little things that did it: a lot of his friends (and I use that word lightly because this is Mewtwo we're talking about) dropped in the past few months, I've got a slight preference for third-person writing, and uncertainty over his voice after going through the movie canon. I think that part of what makes Mewtwo fun is how certain he is that he's right. Sadly, he loses that after almost murdering millions of people.

I've still got him from pre-canon over at [livejournal.com profile] bubblevoid, but I seem to have stalled there, too. Nothing I can't deal with, I hope, but it's a little worrying.

I AM A SERIOUS BUSINESS PERSON (comments get a little ...uh, disturbing and maybe nsfw) Jan. 12th, 2010 @ 11:27 pm
Oh my god gender wank on the anonymous RP comm, I am so sick of you and I haven't even partaken. I'm pretty sure that there's no right way for a guy to respond to that stuff.

[1]
[2]
[3]
[4] (for the sake of honesty, I did comment to this one. I even used ~tildes~ for sarcasm. I almost never use tildes.) BEST PART THOUGH IS THE FIRST COMMENT IN RESPONSE TO THIS. YES THANK YOU SINCE ALL I WANT IN LIFE IS TO HAVE LOTS OF SEX I GUESS I'D BETTER START BATHING NOW sex with ladies should not the 'carrot' for having normal personal hygiene what on earth. like girls should suddenly fall at your feet if you are not a disgusting slob and you ROLEPLAY EEEE ALL ANYONE COULD WANT IN A MAN agh

IT IS KIND OF INTERESTING TO BE CHILLING IN A FEMALE-DOMINATED AREA, THOUGH. LJ roleplaying is one of the few places online where guys are significantly in the minority/not swimming in privilege (thanks to the relative anonymity afforded by the 'net and the reputation as giant creepers that a few dudes have cultivated, I guess. IT'S REALLY WEIRD WORRYING IF YOU'RE BEING PREEMPTIVELY JUDGED I AM NOT USED TO THIS AT ALL*). That's why for the most part I think it's best to shut up and check out people's perceptions and assumptions. :V Also I feel really awkward talking about this kind of thing because I don't know the lingo at all. At least I have a sister who I can trust to beat me into the pavement if I get it too wrong, hey? Thanks, Jen. :B

*Or at least not like this. I'm always aware that I'm being judged for liking Pokemon or gesturing wildly or being small and nerdy, but it's never really interesting or important to me. I guess not being treated like someone who want to sex up all kinds of ladies is more of an issue for me than being masculine. Probably because it's assumptions about me being a decent kind of person rather than assumptions about my sexuality or ...viability? I don't even know.

edit
[5] Oh man, I was too early for one of the most obnoxious people on the community to show up and educate us all on womens' issues because he's apparently the only male who's ever heard of feminism or something. hasdgh We know, bud. You are not the only man who is not a moron thank you

New best icon ever. :D Nov. 4th, 2009 @ 12:10 am
Hideo Kojima A "Huge Fan" Of Twilight!

I DON'T UNDERSTAND. TWILIGHT DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE NUKES OR RUSSIANS IN IT. SOMEONE WHO'S READ IT TELL ME, DOES MEYER LOVINGLY DESCRIBE EDWARD'S BUTTOCKS AT SOME POINT OR SOMETHING? BECAUSE THAT MIGHT DO IT oh Kojima i don't even.


I keep on having these random urges to play characters from all over. Dahlia Hawthorne and Ini Miney from Ace Attorney, Dilandou from Escaflowne, and Rossiu from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann seem to be the big ones at the moment, plus another Pokemon OC. I was shocked to discover that no one makes icons of Claydol for some reason! Might go with a gijinka this time, anyway, though I'll probably have to draw it myself. And I'm not really any kind of artist, sooo.

Ah, well. I don't have the time to be playing any new characters, anyway. D| People are probably sick of me throwing in a tag or two every day and dragging things out for ages. I finally wrapped up a thread that started around two weeks ago over in [livejournal.com profile] pokedressing. And then in [livejournal.com profile] bubblevoid I'm in one that started on the 10th. It's a good thing that being slow and backdating is normal there, and it's kind of excused by being in log format between three people.

Oh yeah, speaking of drawing! )

ATTN GUNDAM WING DORKS Aug. 28th, 2009 @ 12:12 am
Okay, dudes, a couple of things. First off, I'd appreciate if anyone who knows Gundam Wing would read this application critically. Do I understand Quatre? Have I typoed 'Gundam Wang' again? Halp please!

this is like seven pages of writing. It was kind of cool, a huge character essay! 8D )

Aaaand just some general notes from as the series progresses. These aren't done and don't include Endless Waltz and a lot of things that I know I won't forget, but uh here it is.

this is kind of sad actually )

WELL, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Hooray, Softlights has a new and excellent song on their MySpace! Man, I love that group.

You know, some days I feel like I'm wasting my time roleplaying. It's selfish and self-indulgent, you know? Doesn't do a thing for anybody except me. But then I have a thread that's just so fun that I almost feel like I've contributed to making the world a better place just for having written for it, as though my happiness at it somehow influences anyone but me. Dumb, right? Totally irrational. But the same feelings come whenever I have enormous fun with other people regardless of how it happens. It's just that through RP, it can happen several times a week if things go well. Hm.

I finally finished the Emerald chapter of Pokesoup. Epic, excellent ending, 'though the beginning half was kind of slow. Nonstop battles woooo. But now I'm out of Pokederp manga! D:


...So I did a meme! Here it is: clicky clicky )

Biology has ruined salads for me. Apr. 9th, 2009 @ 01:10 am
This is a rather nice song along with some wonderful stop motion: [Her Morning Elegance]

I created a RP account on a total whim for the character Montblanc from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, FF XII, and FF Tactics Advance A2. The username? [livejournal.com profile] lookouthalifax. If you get the joke, I'll be impressed. Even more so if you aren't Canadian. Montblanc is rather difficult to find icons for, unfortunately; I may have to create some of my own out of the little fan art there is at some point. I don't even know if I'll play him anywhere, but the name was just too good to pass up.

I've been feeling rather apathetic lately toward nearly all things wonderful. I'm studying fairly well, fortunately, but probably not well enough. It might actually be a good thing that my motivation for the things that usually keep me happily distracted is gone, but the absence has left me in a state of boredom most of the time.

I keep on typing entries (and comments to others' entries) and then deleting them, which is rather ridiculous. It's that kind of feeling, I suppose. Not 'i just don't care,' apathy, but 'what am i trying to say this is worthless' apathy. I would guess that this is all the result of stress from the upcoming finals; my first is on the thirteenth- Plant Biology. I am much more worried about Biochemistry and Calculus.


I'm sick of being all earth and no fire, but I am working methodically to remedy this.
Sometimes I make jokes.

Guess what I've been doing to relax lately Feb. 26th, 2009 @ 03:15 pm
Guuuh. I have like 15 more amino acids to memorize before Saturday, not to mention the names and structures of about a million carbohydrates. Fun times!

So after much deliberation, I think I'm playing the wrong Mewtwo. I mean, sure, anime!Mewtwo has a couple hours of development and actual dialogue, but manga!Mewtwo smacks his enemies around with a giant spoon! HOW AWESOME IS THAT? Also awwww this Mewtwo is so cute.

Maybe I'll make my Mewtwo learn to do that eventually in DDD. Lookit me mixing canons around. :V He doesn't have any way of close-range fighting at the moment, though, so it's not totally unjustified. yes it is it involves fighting with a giant spoon wtf self don't do that

ALSO see the kid with the giant hat? That is Yellow and my favourite character ever. I say that all the time so don't take it too seriously but Yellow's actually not too different from OCs that I've made in the past, throwing a handful of qualities I love together into a character. I might make a RP account just for dressing rooms or something. No way can I take the time to play another character seriously. I don't know how people who play more than two or three characters do it!

It's official: the mangaverse is my favourite version of Pokemon. ARBOK GET BITTEN IN HALF AND THE ELITE FOUR ARE ACTIVELY TRYING TO ERADICATE HUMANITY WOOO~! Also Pikachu looks like a bean with eyes which is so much more lovable.

A WILD RP APPROACHES Dec. 14th, 2008 @ 03:36 pm
Only writing for a minute because augh Animal Physiology final on the sixteenth, but.

Everyone should join [livejournal.com profile] echoesoftime.

It is brand new and accepts characters from games that have died. Guess who I'm putting there. Now I've just got to try to draw a billion icons that don't look awful quickly. Although obviously I won't be doing anything until after the twentieth, my last final. Except for juuuust a few icons. I'm such a slacker.

ANYWAY. The ad. for it is here. Click and check it out and aghsgl;a someone come play with me because I'm pretty sure that this short little writeup is the first advertising that anyone's done for the thing! :B

Doooo eeeeeet!

Hyadain, RP Dorkiness, and more. Nov. 29th, 2008 @ 06:35 pm
Earlier today I was taking an online quiz... and I forgot my age. I am just that spectacular. |B

So, last night at around, oh, three-ish, I came up with a character. Or rather, took a vaguely defined character from my mind and fleshed her out into someone who I could write or play easily. She, ah, is the elder sister of my character Emira in the dead Pokemon RP I was in some time ago. Their relationship was important to Emira's development (or would have been, if the game hadn't died. asdghwoe), so I already knew a certain amount. Anyway!

blah blah blah )

I think way too much about things that don't matter, when I really should be sleeping. It's weird how I haven't been able to sleep properly in forever.

I got a new icon! Robooooo <3! I'm thinking of maybe buying a paid-account-for-life during the sale that's coming up. I... dunno, though. I've no plans to leave LJ ever, really. It's all I want in a social networking site, you know? But. That's a lot of money for something that I use just for fun. The ability to edit comments and 8139610935 icons sounds awesome, but... maybe not worth that much money...? I'll see. Woooo leaving it up to impulse. I'm so wild, I know.

Grrrk I wrote a three-hour midterm today for Religious Studies and it was brutal. I could have used that much time for just the essay question! :L But hopefully it'll be alright. It's only worth ten percent of my final grade so that's probably okay.

Oh, right! Those things I wrote about while insane! I'll link those in just a sec. First, I want to talk about how awesome I think things like Super Smash Bros. are. Canon cross-overs. I guess that I am secretly a cross-over fan. But SSB has inspired huge amounts of fanart and weird creations and all that, and I love it. :B It doesn't hurt that I am gigantic sucker for cute and man there is a lot of it. On the subject of crossovers, that is exactly why I am so excited for Final Fantasy Dissidia [Trailer]. Giant crossover? Yes please! Although I hope they have a decent justification for the presence of Jeckt among the villains. Zidaaaaaane! And that line of Kuja's: "I'm drowning in the plan?" Kuja really is just a child. He would so very get left behind by all of the super evil FF villains. Heh, I don't even own a PSP. THIS COULD EITHER BE REALLY GOOD OR REALLY BAD. I am keeping my hopes up.

So, anyway, here we are!

Ievan Polkka as presented by Pikachu and Wolf. :B The only translations that really matter are, 'Then I'll do it in the dark!' and 'PIKACHU used FLASH.' You'll know where they go.

Now, this! I have no idea what this is called. It is deathly adorable. Just try not to think about it too hard, though, because if you do it becomes ...uncomfortable. Let yourself be stunned by the cute instead.

I AM INCREDIBLY MASCULINE SHHHH

Aaaaand have another Ievan Polkka! This one featuring a handful of others. Man, what is up with the Japanese and leeks, anyway? This ones a bit more dynamic and less derpy. |B Geeze I love all of the characters. Toon Link and Ness would absolutely be friends.

And here's a less cute one!
Alice Human Sacrifice. Wooo horror song.

Here's a translation I found, but there's one included in the description to the song, too. I wonder which is more accurate?
Poor Alice. )

|D

Ah... and the even more fabulous (and by fabulous, I mean fabulous) version of Quick! JUST IN CASE, YOU KNOW, THE PREVIOUS VERSION LEFT YOU IN SOME DOUBT ABOUT QUICK MAN'S INTENTIONS.

And lookee here, another version of Crash (Let's Do It). XD Poor Mega Man. WOULD YOU LIKE SOME PHALLIC IMAGERY? Oh, gay robots. See, I got into Mega Man way too late for this to ruin my childhood. It's just funny.

Oh I guess it would be good to link to Hyadain's user page. Here we are. He has done a lot.

Hah, here's another good one. Royal Straight Flush is actually probably my favourite of the ones I've linked. I think that Hyadain just has a talent for expressing characters in funny, interesting ways. It comes through best in this one.

OKAY THE LAST ONE because haha no one cares at this point is Doga and Une from Final Fantasy III. Isn't it lovely? A really great theme.

Okay, I lied. One more, but just because it's from Chrono Trigger and has &hearts Roboroborobo &hearts. Epoch / Silbird is catchy and man I am a colossal dork I'll be quiet now.

I'm actually feeling kinda sick today, though, so I'm probably going to try to go to bed early and instead read livejournal communities for hours. |B SUCH WILLPOWER.

This is like a novel. I even made a table of contents for your convenience! Oct. 29th, 2008 @ 04:29 pm
I had a weird, surprisingly brutal dream last night, so I made myself late for class took the time to write it down as soon as I woke up.

Basically, three characters- two friends (we'll call them X and Y) and an enemy of X, who they come across wounded. Let's call him Z.

Wooo, violence )

'Let us then walk around the heavenly pillar and meet and have conjugal intercourse.' )

Hi, I'm going to gripe about studying for a bit. Oct. 14th, 2008 @ 11:40 pm
Oh my god, you guys, I never want to study again. It's a good thing that I don't have four midterms coming up right away that I've hardly studied for. Oh, hey, wait.

If I do not do well on my math midterm tomorrow, I am going to fling myself off of the bridge or something. D| I have devoted so much time to it and neglected everything else, and I still don't feel confident about it.

I didn't even go outside today. Left my room three times in total. aaaaaaaaagh.

...Well, this weekend was awesome, at least. It was great to see all of my friends back at home! Sorry, Adam, about my phone dieing. I'll see you... next time! Probably Christmas, whenever I make it up to PA.

Uh, I should say, 'mostly awesome.' I was the worst friend ever, too, so that wasn't too great. I AM SORRY AMBER I CAN'T BELIEVE I ACTUALLY LET THAT HAPPEN.



In nicer news, now there are now two Mewtwos (other than mine) out there in the world of LJ RP using icons I made. I AM SO VERY TALENTED OR MAYBE THERE ARE JUST NO OTHER ICONS OF MEWTWO IN PAIN, WHICH COULD IT BE? :B

Oh yeah, and I guess there's an election or something going on and I am not going to vote. How socially irresponsible! But studying for my midterms is more important to me than researching the candidates is, so. Also, many more excuses for something that I am uncomfortable about but doing anyway.

Bleeeeeh.

Yes, I ogle RPs for entertainment. 8D Oct. 2nd, 2008 @ 07:44 pm
Man, [livejournal.com profile] sumabura_gakuen is the awesomest RP I'll never get involved in. xD I've been poking around there for few days now, and it is hilarious! The characters... There's people playing Pikmin- a Red, a Blue, and a PURPLE! And man, I want to be whomever is playing Charmeleon. I am not all that good at doing casual arrogance and and disregard for consequences, and he or she does an awesome job of it. :BB

This thread is great. :B If nothing else, read the Redead's input. I HATE REDEADS. STOP RAPING ME DAGNABBIT. >:\\\


So about half an hour ago had me face-planted on the floor of my dorm laughing like a crazy person. In the past few weeks, my legs have been falling asleep with stunning frequency. Usually it's one or the other, but not today! xD I tried to get up like a dozen times before it wore off, because we all know that I do not learn! And that it's actually a lot more fun this way. :B


Man, do I feel really unmotivated lately. I could just spend the whole day in bed.
...Actually, come to think of it, I just did. Most of it, anyway. My lab was cancelled so I had obscene amounts of free time. Urg, but why didn't I do anythiiiiing? What a waste of a day that should have gone toward studying. Stupid, stupid, stupid.


I wonder if I'm burning myself out by having either class or work every day. If so, that'll be taken care of soon enough- we've hired someone new, so as soon as he's done being trained I am ditching Sundays and just... doing nothing on my first free day. Except that I can't afford another waste of a day like I did today. aaaaaugh.

Aug. 16th, 2008 @ 08:54 pm
See, I should definitely write every two or three days. Things happened, and I can scarcely remember them! [Bad username or site: fuggetlenseqghio2[w43etgeOhscrewthis @ livejournal.com] BETH came and visited me on Thuuuursday, which was awesome because she is one of my closest and oldest friends and always will be forever and ever so there.

Lets try that again; apparently I'm in an incoherent mood.

Beth came and visited! She brought Hannah, who I don't know very well (but I do like) and they spent the night because they had to bus out from S'toon VERY VERY early in the morning. She'll be back on Monday, too! And on Friday, my grandparents came into town and bought me lunch at work, then later we went out and did stuff with my sister. Then they had to go so Jen, Scott and I went to Boston Pizza for supper. :D After all of this seeing people, it is nice to relax for a day or so!

Uhhhh what else have I been doing? I had so much to write about!

Oh! I finished Tender Is The Night on Friday. It was... interesting. Good, of course. I'm sure that I wouldn't have understood it half as well if I hadn't just broken up with Sarah. IT WAS MY DESTINY TO UNDERSTAND THIS BOOK. It was actually pretty cathartic. I am by no means half as likable as Dr. Diver, but I couldn't help but notice a handful of parallels in the book to my recently ended relationship. Toward the end- at the point at which you know that its over, but there's nothing to really boot it over the edge. I'm definitely getting myself in trouble, here. Hee.

Speaking of the breakup, I was really surprised at first by my grandma's response to the news, although I shouldn't have been, knowing her.
"Good," she said. It's not that she dislikes Sarah (SHE DOESN'T, SARAH. I SWEAR). It's that she thinks that I'm too young to miss out on experiencing other things, other people. She really is an exceptional person, and maybe she's right. For both of us.

Uh, what else. FINALLY REACHED WILY'S LEVEL- JESUS THAT MONSTER THING IS HARD TO FIGHT! D<

Also, the translation of BN4 is noticeably more clumsy than that of BN3. It's too bad, really! But still fun.

Tum tum tum, what else. I'm sad that the Pokemon RP I'm in dieeed. I had such plans for Emira! I'm thinking of moving her over to [livejournal.com profile] pokedressing, which accepts OCs. She'd be madly out of place, but oh well! It's just a crack-community anyway.

I've been collecting quotes, recently. I like quotes! But it's really unsatisfying t-WAS THAT THUNDER? AWESOME! I HAD NO IDEA WE HAD A STORM BREWING!-o just rip them out of a book of quotes. Context is so important. It's inspired by a few different sources- Watership Down starts every chapter with a quote. Mrs. Who* speaks almost solely in -LIGHTNING WOOO- quotations. Other... books... there's another book or series that is important to me that does the same as Watership Down, but I can't remember what it is at the moment! But these are all reasons! I've been writing the quotes down in my little book that I take everywhere and I will always have them on hand. Quotes that are too large to get down just get bookmarked.

Only one week left at Sobeys! Thank god! Bizarrely-Nice-Guy definitely thinks I hate him, though. I'm awful at that job, even when I'm medicated.

Um.

Have a quote.

"He stayed in the big room a long time listening to the buzz of the electric clock, listening to time."

-Tender Is The Night, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Tch. They all lose so much to a lack of context. But this line really did jump out at me.
Have something from my Latin text, as well.

"vitia erunt donec homines."

-Tacitus

Or, in English, "While there are humans, there will be faults." It's rather obvious, I suppose.



*No relation to the Doctor. Althoooough...

I wonder when I stopped caring about grammar in casual posts. Jul. 22nd, 2008 @ 07:50 pm
I have been feeling down about something lately, but I'm not allowed to talk about it. I sometimes forget that other people feel uncomfortable having events from their lives viewable by other people, even though those events affect me too! This has landed me in trouble in the past!

So, guys, if there's ever something that happens to both of us and you don't want people to know about it, you need to tell me. Otherwise I'll post my thoughts about it in this journal and then you'll get mad at me. If it's something that happened to just you and is obviously personal, I'm probably clever enough to work it out.

Haha, I wonder if I'll get in trouble for just this! :o



The past few days I have been writing things that I want to post about on my hand, but I've been too busy to do much of anything. That and I couldn't for the life of me work out why 'Moose' was on the top of the list. I eventually realized that it was 'Mouse,' and -bam!- remembered what I wanted to write about.

I guess that the Midtown Plaza has a mouse problem! When I was opening on Monday I saw one scurry across the floor out of the corner of my eye. I totally didn't expect mice in the middle of a mall, so I just kinda casually mentioned it to one of the workers in the section outside of my little nook where I work. She was like, 'Oh no.' and started looking for it. Then she found it and we think it ran into her stock room and she was like, 'Oh no.' again and went to call someone. I wonder if I maybe shouldn't have said anything?

Next on the list starts with R and ends with two Ls but I can't for the life of m- oh! Right! Haha, you know how I've been playing Chrono Trigger? And you know what Rickrolling is? Well. I want you all to listen to this. This is Robo's theme and ...that Rick Astley song, whatever it's called, played simultaneously. You just got Roborolled. There are links in the description of that video to the individual songs.

Haha, next on the list is, and I quote, "BAAAAASSSSSSS!~" XD I just fought him for (what I assume is) the first time in Mega Man BN3, and I was too busy going "I <3 YOU BASSSSSSS" to make a real effort at fighting him... Which was okay because it was totally a scripted battle anyway.

Uh, next is 'Wall-E.' This is driving me a little nuts, and I want to see it again to see if I can make it work, buuut did anyone else notice that it was a chick flick about her getting accidentally pregnant? Or possibly with a bit of work I will be able to interpret it as a Christian parable. The first thing nagged me throughout the entire first half of the movie, and the second is just me being silly (but I bet I could do it).

Aaand last but not least, "AHAA I'M DESIRABLE!"
I guess The Bay must have lost a watch repair employee, because a manager from there approached me today and was like, 'psst, hey buddy, I'm X from The Bay. We're looking to hire a new person for our watch repair. We can offer full-time work. If you're interested, just come in some day and ask to talk to me." And I was just so... surprised, you know? I couldn't do it, though, even if I wanted to. You can't really just ditch a job when the only person who's worked there longer than you is recovering from a heart attack. She would have to come back even though she probably won't be healthy enough for another month and that is just not cool. And the only other employee has been there for only a few weeks, really.

I got kind of bludgeoned with responsibility today, though. I guess the end of our year is the end of July, and we need to take stock before then. That means that basically I need to count up how many of everything we have and estimate its cost and this is going to be really hard because there is so much to do! D:

The guy trying to poach me to work at The Bay kinda did boost my spirits, though, which was nice. And at DDD there's a constructive criticism post and oh my god I'm still in shock that people seem to like how I play Mewtwo! So that's good and could not have come at a better time, haha.

Now dangit I'm going to do something fun and forget everything.

EDITED BECAUSE ADAM COULDN'T STAND ME MISSPELLING THE NAME OF HIS FAVOURITE ARTIST. :>>>

Well. Okay, here. Jul. 16th, 2008 @ 09:50 pm
So, there's something that I've been trying to put into practise in an attempt to reduce my crippling embarrassment over things that really shouldn't matter. Whenever I do something that I would NEVER TELL ANYONE EVER out of fear for what they might think of me, I... tell everyone ever. The idea is that I really don't like the part of me that tries to hide the parts that are especially dorky or stupid or idiotic, so I'm getting rid of it. Breaking the habit. Begone, shame!
What, you want a couple examples of me deliberately bringing up things I'm ashamed of? Well, since you asked, you cruel people, you. [1] [2] [3]
...There's more, but I can't remember 'em. :B

You guys are getting really excited for a confession, aren't you? )

...If you mock, it shows you care! &hearts!

Oh, I think that this is beautiful and wonderful. Kate Beaton posted a request for people to draw their conversations with their childhood selves, like she has for her comic. Some are funny, some are blah (mine- check page 9), some are really quite touching. (I would be totally psyched seven years ago to see that when I am 19 I can draw even the bit that I can.)

But seriously, there are some awesome artists there, and some really interesting people. Read them!

...Yes, I drew myself with my old hair. I'm still surprised to look into windows and see short-haired me looking back. Also, I have no idea what I looked like back in the late 90s or early 2000s. I recall being pudgier and ... that's about it. Shorter, probably?

Mmm, I'm in the mood for more writing. Ah, I can flail for a little bit!
DEAR CUSTOMERS, I AM NOT A GIRL! T_T MY HAIR IS SHORT NOW, EVEN. STOP SAYING THAT. Aaaaaaaaugh! DX

Wellllll, haha, it's actually gotten past the point where it really bothers me. THIS IS NOT A NEW PROBLEM, as those who know me in RL may recall. But still, I hate having to just giggle laugh in my APPARENTLY GIRLY VOICE when some nice old lady tells me I'm 'a good girl.' Because I don't want to deal with the awkwardness of telling the truth because I've dealt with that for like a quarter of my life already and enough is enough, I'll be a girl for some people. Girls get better tips, anyway. The new girl, Sarah, has already made more in tips that I have in total. It's possible (I GUESS.) that she's just more pleasant than me...

Maybe I need a ♂ pin for my collar. Just as a hint. ¬_¬


Oh, and now that the scanners working I can upload a little of the art I've done at work. I will. At some point. Probably. :B

I do really like this song.

OH RIGHT! I lost Niente! My MP3 player! D: Nieeeeente, I love you! Come back to me! But she's been missing for a few weeks now, but I've finally gotten around to looking for her and she is just nowhere to be found. ;_;

FIYAH! Jul. 4th, 2008 @ 08:43 pm
XD THAT WAS THE AWESOMEST THING EVER! I should probably never cook, ever. If I offer to, expect me to serve my speciality: oil-fire-in-a-wok!

I spent a few minutes just watching it, because it looked awesome and I was maybe a little alarmed! Then the apartment started filling with smoke and I thought maybe I should do something. I know that you're not supposed to use water on an oil fire, but it's not like I had sand or something just sitting around... ANYWAY, it worked, after a little explosive 'foom.' IT WAS GREAT.
Also, it is crazy smoky in here. GOOD JOB, SELF. b ^_^ d


Uhhhh, expect me to post a long dorky entry about Pokemon sooner or later.

Oh, hey, here's a shocker! I made some icons for my RP account and someone actually liked 'em enough to message me and ask if they can use them on their account for the same character. Bizarre! XD I attribute it to the utter lack of icons for that character, especially ones in which he's hurt.
