- Got my hair cut again after putting it off for a few weeks. It's the kind of short I've been trying to get and failing at (seriously, she used clippers on a lot of it XD) My mother's response to the haircut? "Why don't you just shave it off? You might as well at this point." ............................
*growl* Fuck you. Seriously. NOBODY ASKED YOUR GOD DAMN OPINION.

- Scored jeans at LB for 40% off, they're not flare or boot-cut, AND they're a size lower than what I got last time I bought jeans. Woo! I have no idea how I managed that, being that I haven't lost any weight and I'm not working out, so it's not like I've lost fat and gained muscle all of a sudden. Oh well. I'm certainly not going to complain. :D

- Also found volume 12 of Junjou Romantica, which I've been looking for. So! That one's totally caught up. \o/

- Level grinding in FFIII. What makes it suck even more than usual is that I'm kind of stuck where I am right now, due to story events, so I'm basically having to run up and down these stairs ad nauseum. UGH. Hopefully I can stop after one more level up and not get totally slaughtered by the boss.

- Apparently about a month ago, Konami put up a post on their Facebook group "What Konami game franchise would you love to see brought back?" I didn't read all 924 comments, but seriously? I did go 100 comments back, and all but TWO were along the lines of "SUIKODEN VI, DAMMIT!" *dies laughing* You think maybe they got the hint? Someone commented "Looks like Suikoden fans have made their own army now. :D" *dies more*

- Awesome video of Tom Felton on Conan- there was Harry/Draco discussion, and pictures! So funny, and he was so freaking cute when he literally turned PINK when they showed a couple of Harry/Draco photo manips. On the other hand, it did feel a bit strange having fandom acknowledged out of the blue like that, and on such a popular platform. And to think the actors actually read fanfiction and see fanart? Kind of like... er... what? O_o I don't know. It's a little too close to home for comfort. A great clip and interview, but just... made me feel a little like a bug under a microscope lens, if that makes any sense.

My throat hurts. ;_;

☁ Okay, yeah, I ended up ordering some bras anyway, since LB had a buy 2 get 2 free sale... and I really need decent bras to wear to work anyway. The ones I've designated for work are... really crappy, even more so now that they're REALLY not the right size. Besides, I never use my store credit card anyway- gotta use the damn thing every once in a while, right? :P

☁ I lied about the [livejournal.com profile] queermail  thing too- put up that post a little over  a week ago. Whoops. Ah, well. ^_^;;; Post is here, for my own reference or if anybody wants to look at it or something.

☁ Officially back at SW with Al. It's nice. <3 I wasn't sure about how coming back would be- I'll be honest here and admit that there was a secret in RP!S in the last few weeks about being nervous about picking up a game they idled out of... yeah, that was so me. XD But I've missed playing Al and playing with those people, so I think it'll all work out. Only problem is I used Brotherhood screencaps for some icons, so he's all grownup looking now.... which means the old icon set won't work. Need to find more icons. :/ Also RP related is that my LJ Login is getting really ridiculous, so I'm trying to go through and delete some of the old journals I don't use anymore. The old Al one is gone, and I need to decide which of the other ones I'm not going to keep. I might just keep the other ones and just take them off the LJ Login, though. ^_^;;;

☁ Reading Junjou Romantica and realizing that Hiroki is a lot like me personality-wise. Some of the things he says are just like... "Holy crap, I'm in a yaoi manga." That being said, I think Misaki is still my favorite character, but the manga seems to have changed my favorite couple. It's Egoist now instead of Romantica.

☁ Ugh, it's so hot. SO HOT. Weatherbug says it's 99.1- and that's BEFORE the humidity. Heat index is 106. *dies* I haven't left the house since Monday. It's just... guh. And it's supposed to be just as hot tomorrow. You think it'll be really super obvious if I call in sick at work? Not that this will help terribly much, really. The heat wave is sticking around for a while longer. Dammit, mother nature, this is upstate New York, not Florida! Get your shit together!

☁ I think I'm a little addicted to Cake Mania 3 at the moment, heh. <_< Doesn't help that Final Fantasy XIII is pissing me off so much. Lightning keeps. Freaking. Dying. *growls* I'd actually be playing it now, but my controller is acting up even after I changed the batteries. *growls louder*

☁ So it's looking like I'll probably be going to see Erin in October. I really need the vacation now, but there's no way in HELL I'm going to Texas in July. Not happening. Anyway, unless someone's told her, she doesn't know that I've been losing weight. I think it would really be a lot of fun to try to lose as much weight as I can before that (I'm aiming to be down 60 pounds from start weight, which is just over 22 pounds away from today's weigh-in)... and shock the hell out of her at the airport. *snicker* Little bit evil, but fun. We shall see how all of that pans out. :3

1. It wasn't straight on, but all in all I slept roughly 11 1/2 hours. O_o Clearly, though, I needed it, because I do feel a bit better. It will all go to hell as soon as I go to work, I'm sure. XD I'm still sick, but not quite as much, and my ear doesn't feel so stuffy. Which is good. I'd rather not have to go to the doctor if I can help it, and if part of this is an ear infection like I think it is, most times they resolve themselves without antibiotics anyway. And yes, if my ear still hurts in a week, I'll go to the doctor, unless something dramatic happens between now and then. *grumble*

2. I haven't written in a little while, so a couple of things finished: Junjou Romantica and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar. Junjou.... you know, I kind of have the same reaction as I did to season one. I would like another season, but I won't be heartbroken if they don't, because I think it ends just fine where it is. *sigh* Weird to have it be over though. XD So now I'm taking a little break, and then will probably be picking up Nabari again. Or at least, trying to. This will be attempt number three. Not that it's bad, it just hasn't particularly caught my interest yet, and I keep getting distracted by shinier things. XDDD

I should really go to the grocery store and pick up some food, but I really don't feel like it. And gah, I can't think of anything else because while I do feel a bit better, my brain is still mush. XD Probably better to just shut up at this point, huh?

The scary part is, I could still totally go back to sleep right now....

Dramadramadrama. *sigh* I hate drama. So why does nearly everyone around me in real life insist on creating it?

In related news, Christmas has been postponed again. End of January now. At this point I'd say fuck it, why don't we just not do it, except that I've already purchased a bunch of stuff. Most of which I really wouldn't have bought for myself. Little snag there. So I have this Saturday off, and I'm going to have to spend it with my mother. Ugh. And then when we actually do the present thing, we're going to have to do it before I go to work, since there's no way in HELL I can get another Saturday off so soon. Meh. Lovely.

Need to try and scrounge up some guesses for bg. Ugh. I don't feel like it, I'm all crampy, which of course means I don't feel like doing much of -anything-. *sigh* Speaking of which, reveals are tonight, so anybody who wanted to go make a guess for me, find my guessing post! It shouldn't be too hard, I'm just too lazy to link to it right now. XD

So I finished Natsume (though apparently there's going to be a season two, dunno if I'm going to watch that. Season one stands alone well as it is), and am now watching Nabari no Ou. I... don't know what to think so far. ^_^;;; AND SEASON TWO OF JUNJOU IS ALMOST DONE, SADNESS! We can hope for a season three? :D

Oh, Fei, in case I miss you- have to go to work at 2 today, so leaving early obviously. And before you ask, no, this does not mean that I get to leave early. Sorry. I'll see you later?

A little late, but Happy New Year everybody! Here's hoping 2009 is better than 2008, though that's not looking likely at the moment... *sigh* I don't make resolutions because I -always- break them, but I figure I can probably get at least 5 things crossed off my 101 in 1001 list. Shouldn't be too difficult, right? *crickets* Right? XD

People fail. There's a delay in Junjou Romantica subbing, though at least that I can understand. The subber's computer crashed, and until things are back up and running again, no episodes. Sucky, but understandable. Crunchyroll has pulled all of the anime off it's site and is only allowing "official" uploads now- basically meaning that a ton of stuff probably won't get put back up there. Like Chi. -_- Graaaah. Annoying.

Also, today is [livejournal.com profile] akira_chan 's birthday- happy birthday, Aki! *kiss*

Work soon. Urgh. Do I have to? I'm feeling sleepy and not up to it at all. -_-

1. I've been meaning to write entries, just... work has been kicking my ass lately. Oh, and I think I'm coming down with a cold. Lovely. All in all it means that I've been very tired. I got home from work yesterday just exhausted. Well... I work today and tomorrow, and then when I go back to work it'll be Christmas. So no more pre-Christmas bullshit. Of course, that brings in the post-Christmas bullshit, but I'm trying not to think about that right now. At least it won't be fucking Christmas cards. >_<

2. It's snowing. Again. For the third day in a row. God, I hate snow. -_- Though Akichan made a good point in that it's not really the snow, it's the walking in snow part. Ugh.

...speaking of ugh, just found this: "This weekend’s winter wonderland is expected to continue today with another 5 to 10 inches of snow. That’s on top of about 11 inches of snow the region received Friday and Saturday." ............................................because apparently almost a foot of snow isn't enough, adjksaljdkslajdla.

3. Ai- Got your postcard. Pretty. <3

4. Junjou Romantica 9- *SQUEEEEEEE!* ZOMGMISAKI! Watched it last night, and may actually... watch it again. ^_^;;;

5. [livejournal.com profile] fifthmus  got turned in on time, by the way, for better or worse. *nervous* I at least hope my recipient doesn't totally hate it.

......it's totally tempting to take a nap right now. I was going to go out before work, but of course it's storming again, so no go. I also need laundry which I don't have time for. Meh. But I -do- need a shower, so I should probably do that soon. And maybe watch an episode of... something. Haven't really been watching anime much lately except re-watching Fruits Basket with Kelly. Which she is predictably in love with. XD

1. It's so NICE to not have to write every day. Of course, I think this means that entries will be longer on average than they have been, but it'll probably still be less writing overall. Score for you guys. XD

2. My computer's being pissy. Gah. >_<

3. Rightstuf has a 30% off everything sale. *bites lip* Daaaaaaaaaaamn. Lane Bryant has a buy one get one free right now too (Yay bras?). Dammit. At least Rightstuf has their sale going for another week, which means another paycheck. *bites lip some more* This is baaaaaad.

...willpower. I don't have it. XD

4. Apparently I got my review, along with a 30 cent raise. Woohoo. I mean, it's not like I'm bitching about getting a raise or anything, I appreciate getting it, especially when I know a lot of people are getting laid off right now... but I get paid shit. 30 cents on top of shit is still shit. *sigh* I've worked there six years and I get paid just under $9 an hour. That's fucking pathetic.

5. Speaking of work, I have a fun little story for you guys. Okay... so we have this TV set up in the store, right? There's a DVD player underneath it, under a box to hide it, that they play samples of the DVD's you can make with your own pictures. Steven, on Friday, wanted me to change the DVD. Which meant Ver being on a fucking ladder, trying to hold the tv so she could get the stupid box off of the fucking DVD player plus change the DVD, and all the while trying not to fall. Fun stuff... not. Stupidest display set up ever.

But the thing that really kills me? I was up there, and then Ryan (our cashier for the night) came over and wanted me to help him with something on register. O_o Does it look like I can help you right now? I am on a ladder holding a fucking television, okay? I'M BUSY. And then when I was like, "You're going to have to call someone else," he gave me this dumb freaking look and said "Who?"


There were three other people in the store, guys. Seriously. I was going "ANYBODY!" And of course he was continually distracting me, so I could've fallen off that damn ladder anytime. Fucking. Idiot. Way to try to kill your coworkers with your own stupidity.

6. Severe weather advisory out for tonight. Lovely. And it's FREEZING out- literally. Last I looked about a half hour ago it was -0.8 degrees in Celcius. -_- I bet you can guess how much I want to go outside?

7. Dunno if anybody HASN'T heard about this by now, but... here, have a random news article. What the fuck is wrong with people? YOU KILLED SOMEONE TO GET A SALE. My god. And the thing is, how can you not realize you're stepping on someone? Honestly? YOU'D BE ABLE TO TELL. People disgust me. This is why I hate the holidays- from Black Friday on, people turn into MONSTERS. "Spirit of the Season" my ass. Whoever said that clearly never worked retail.

1. Need to get my sleep schedule back on track- I ended up staying up past 6am with Akichan the other day and I've been messed up ever since. I didn't get to sleep until around 6:30 yesterday. >_< Luckily, because my mom decided that I'd slept too late and HAD to wake me up, I only got about 4 hours of sleep and about a 1 hour nap later. So I should start feeling fairly sleepy soon. Can't be sleeping until 3pm when I've got to work, now can I?

2. I'm SO glad to be going back to work, I can't even tell you. My mother is driving me up the wall. She was completely freaking PSYCHOTIC today. All kinds of fun.

3. Speaking of which, I'm going back a day early. I'm... not really going to get into it, but let's just say Kerry whined at me and he knew damn well I couldn't afford to turn down the extra hours. So I'm officially going back to work on Sunday. Thank fucking god. Can I go back, oh I don't know, now? XDDD Well, I guess it's only four more days that I have off (holy shit, how did that happen? XD). I suppose I'll live until then. Possibly.

4. Junjou Romantica: Aww. Misaki is so adorably clueless. <3

I think I'll go read the rest of Fruits Basket 2 and get some sleep. Later~

1. We're definitely done with summer, so it's away with the bright sunny theme and back with the dark stuff (what, it's easier on the eyes. XD). I like it. The header is pretty. <3

2. I'm half thinking about doing this national blogging month thing. One blog post a day for a month. I can do that, right? Probably?

3. *siiiiiigh* This computer. Man. It's not recognizing my external drive. *stabbity* SO NOT COOL, OISHI. See Ochibi? HE'S RIGHT THERE. >_<

4. Things are definitely in motion for the short term disability bit. Which is good, because I'm going to need whatever money they decide to give me, even though it's only going to be about half of my normal paycheck. And hey, both the people I talked to (yesterday and today) were really super nice. ^_^ I've got to make one more phone call today to my insurance company, seems they want to get a hold of me for some reason, and I'm supposed to be getting forms in the mail and a phone call in about a week. Bah. Just give me my money, yeah? I NEEDZ IT.

5. To that degree, when I get back to work- not right away, we'll see how I feel, but I'm definitely going to be trying to pick up some hours. Kerry already said it was fine. Actually, he was like, "I know you're probably going to want to pick up some extra hours when you get back. That's not a problem. Actually, that works out perfect for me getting into the holiday season. :D" Because... money. *sigh* Big issue. Monetarily speaking, the timing of this couldn't be much worse. Christmas coming up. Hospital bills I'm going to be trying to pay off. I clearly need a new computer ASAP. GAH. Shoot me now.

6. Speaking of Christmas... I'm probably going to be putting up a thing for cards soon. Also. I'm thinking I might need to get a bit... ah... CREATIVE with gifts this year. If anybody has any ideas, let me know? I'm thinking stuff like... jewelry I can put together myself, or mini-scrapbooks (though that's probably a bit too ambitious for me, in which case single pages would probably work just as well. XD), cd's, I know Stef will let me use her computer to burn DVD's and I have blank ones already, possibly make some candles or something... also, cleaning my room and finding some of the stuff I know I have hidden away would be good too. XD

I know I'm going to end up purchasing things as well, because I'm like that, but the more I can do for cheap the better.

7. Urgh. Activity level needs to go up and calorie intake needs to go down. I lost weight after the surgery... at first. Now I've gained it back plus a few pounds, and it seems like I'm constantly eating. Of course, most of that is because I'm bored out of my mind. XD Need to stop that. And water. *nods*

8. Junjou Romantica 2: EEEEEE SO CUTE. When is the next episode coming out? XDDD

1. Watching the last couple of episodes of Kashimashi is apparently Not the thing to do when one is starting a PMS stint. -_- I did this the other day, completely unaware that I was going to cry. And I pretty much never cry at movies/shows/books/whatever. GUH. In the end, though, it's a good series, and I'm working on acquiring it. XD

2. ZOMGCHI. XD Cat vs. Tape! *dies laughing* Yes, needless to say, episode 47 of Chi's Sweet Home is out. ^_^ I think the title of it was "Chi Sticks", which should really tell you everything. XD

3. I discovered at work a couple of days ago that we're currently carrying buttons that you can put your own picture in. *_* *makes grabby hands* Do it yourself anime themed buttons! XD I... uh... may have gone a little overboard? I'll have to post pictures later. Let's just say the messenger bag I carry to work is basically covered in these buttons... especially since they're 3 inch ones, which is rather HUGE. <_< Honestly, they're rather cheap looking, as you'd probably expect. God, I taped each one in two places just to make sure they didn't come apart like it seemed they were going to. But... I haz buttons? XD

4. Trying to start Elfen Lied. Kept having issues with firefox and so had to start it three separate times. *twitch* But now I've seen the entire first episode. It's very... um... interesting? XD I'm not sure whether that's good or bad in this case, I'll have to see more of it to figure that out.

5. Eeee, Junjou Romantica 12! ^_^ Just finished downloading, I'm going to try to sneak in the episode before I go to work... XD

Guh. It's after 2pm. I should probably attempt to find -something- clean to wear for work (since I failed to do laundry yet again- why can't they just wash themselves, dammit?). Later~

Downloaded Firefox 3- put up with it for about ten minutes before I uninstalled it again and went back to 2. Why? The address bar didn't work. At all. *twitch* I'm not the only one with that particular problem, but no one seems to know how to fix it, either. *shrug* Guess I won't upgrade for a while, then.

I started watching Junjou Romantica yesterday~ <3 So there's only 11 episodes out, right? I guess that makes it nice and short for now, but that means I've watched everything there is... <_<

I'm actually getting somewhere in Lost In Blue 2, which makes me happy. It's actually a difficult game- you're stranded on an island and have to survive, one of the main problems being that you have to deal with a mooch. Another character that's just there and you have to keep the idiot alive. You can occasionally send him out for firewood or food, and he can make baskets and ropes now that I've unlocked that... at least it's something. I've definitely gotten past the part where you basically spend all day finding food (mushrooms, seaweed, and clams), cooking food, and still being hungry. XD (Needless to say, it's very easy for your characters to die until you figure out how to fish.) It's incredibly frustrating but also sadly addicting.

*giggles uncontrollably* Okay, so it seems the seme/uke test is going around again- I've done characters before, with this quiz- taking the quiz as the character to see what happens. But it occurred to me that while I did Eiji and Oishi (perfect match) and Tezuka and Fuji (perfect match)....... I never did Hikaru and Akira! *shocked* And the results are naturally hilarious. Hikaru's was actually difficult- several questions had me wibbling because there was more than one good answer for him. But.... he ended up with....

Hikaru~ )


Akira, on the other hand...

Akira~ )

I'm not sure how much I agree with Akira's, honestly. But... not quite a perfect match, but still a very good one. ^_^
