(I missed this yesterday, so you'll be getting two today. Whoops. ^_^;;; )

5. 10 songs you love right now
Oh man, I haven't even been listening to a lot of music lately because of other things going on. Uh. How about instead of RIGHT NOW, 10 favorite songs overall? It's worth noting that what I'm putting here is not representative of everything I listen to- obviously with only 10, I'm leaving out SO MUCH good stuff. Also, I put in youtube links to songs- I tried to get official videos where available, but in some cases I had to post a lyric video. In no particular order beyond alphabetical:
1. From Yesterday- 30 Seconds to Mars (this is the whole video, mainly because I like it. XD)
2. Jaded- Aerosmith
3. Prelude to La Fille Aux Cheveaux de Lin- Debussy (not really 100% thrilled with the versions I was finding on youtube- it's slower in parts than I'm used to, with longer stops- but you get the point.)
4. Missing- Evanescence
5. Father of Mine- Everclear
6. Everything- Lifehouse (yes, okay, I know, I'm atheist and this has religious tones, but I choose not to see the song that way, okay? XD In the HIGHLY unlikely event that I ever got married- *pause for hysterical laughter here*- I would want this song played at some point. I guess I'm secretly a romantic or something.)
7. Second Chance- Shinedown
8. Nice and Slow- Usher
9. Final Distance- Utada Hikaru
10. Everything You Want- Vertical Horizon (this is still one of my favorite albums in the history of EVER)

...you know, I keep trying to post more, and I'll type something up, but then I don't post it and I wait so long that I have to rewrite half of it because it's no longer valid. Whoops. XD

Blah blah blah )

So basically, things are generally going pretty well at the moment. I'll probably be singing another tune in a month when I'm trying to write four different research papers, but eh. XD

☁ The new Donkey Kong Country- it's fun (I'm definitely purchasing it at some point), but it IS a bit of a departure from the previous ones, gameplay wise. Not being able to throw Diddy: fail. The difficulty level was also higher than I expected it to be, straight from the getgo. Then again, in all fairness, there are many levels in the original ones that I can play backwards and forwards at this point, so... they're easy to me NOW. Doesn't mean they were the first time I played them. XD I was always BOSS at the minecart levels and shooting barrels though, and the minecart level in the first world is DEFINITELY harder than those used to be.

If you like the first three, I think you'll like this one- if you've never played the first three, you can either get them for the GBA or download them to your Wii. I would suggest trying one of those first (my favorite is 2, personally), rather than spending the cash on the new one. $10 is better than $40, yeah?

☁ Okamiden- CUTEST. GAME. EVER. ADJKLSJDLK. (Here, have a trailer.) I totally hit "keep" on this one- it's only about 20 cents cheaper on Amazon anyway, so I might as well keep the cartridge that has my save.

Next up on the Gamefly queue: Uh, Kirby's Epic Yarn, apparently.

Absolutely disgusting. There is NO excuse for this- the man physically assaulted a student. He should be in jail, and he shouldn't be allowed to work with children ever again. Period. You don't touch kids.

☁ Also I finally got Suikoden V back. I actually didn't end up having to ask- when I went up to Stef's last week, she was like, "Oh, here!" and handed it to me. She is apparently still working on Kingdom Hearts, which is fine. As long as her room didn't eat it, we're good. XD I think I'm going to have to restart Suikoden V, though, as I only remember bits and pieces of what the hell was going on. Buuuuut that's what I get for loaning the game out when I wasn't finished with it. :/

☁ I just found out about a really neat thing my library has- they're part of an online site that lets you download music, legally, for FREE. You're limited to three a week, and only what they've got (read: Sony), but hey. Free is free is free.

☁ There are, apparently, emulators that allow you to play GB, GBC, NES, and SNES games on a DS R4. O_o I don't know, somehow it just never occurred to me that you could do that? It's probably like the other R4 stuff- some of it works great and other stuff doesn't- but I tried a couple of games and they seem to be alright, though. Might be good for the stuff that Nintendo won't put in their online stores to purchase for current consoles. *cough*WhoFramedRogerRabbit*cough*

☁ I recently tried two new kinds of rice- well, not new really, but new to me. Jasmine rice, which is quite yummy though I wouldn't want to have it all the time; and Basmati rice, which I'd never even heard of before I saw it in the store a couple of days ago. The grains are really long so it almost looks shredded, and it tastes really freaking delicious. It doesn't even need any salt or sauce or anything. I think I need to find the brown version and buy a bag. :3

☁ Finished My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (Yeah, yeah, I know. Guilty pleasures, alright?). The sad thing? It took me 25 episodes to realize that Rainbow and Applejack have the same VA. *facepalm* WTH, self.

☁ The weather's been absolutely freaking GORGEOUS the last couple of days. Which, apparently, is normal after a hurricane (but since they downgraded it to a tropical storm before it got here, does it count?), but it's just totally bizarre to me. O_o

☁ Theory of a Deadman played nearby today. *wail* WHY DO I ALWAYS FIND OUT ABOUT THIS STUFF AT THE LAST MINUTE OR AFTER IT'S OVER? Vertical Horizon was here a month or so ago and I didn't find out about that till way later. -_- Bah.

☁ Someone my mom works with gave her a whole crapload of hand-me-downs for me. I finally went through it all yesterday- some decent stuff. A bit over 1/3 of it is either something I wouldn't be caught dead in or doesn't work for me AT ALL. Lots of jeans. Most of them are too long, but that's not anything new. I'm certainly not going to complain about free clothes. \o/

☁ There's a shuttle bus from the mall to Irish Fest next month. That is... actually doable. Sooooooo I'm seriously thinking about going now. Especially since I have yet to decide what I want to DO on my vacation aside from going out for my birthday, which is kind of a given. I should've known, really. I'm incredibly indecisive. Given so many options, my brain shut down on the subject. Basically, it screamed "I don't KNOW!", curled up in a ball, and refused to make any kind of decision. Pffft. Helpful, that.

☁ Cool new links: Everyone is Gay (Seriously great. Watch their videos. They're love. I also might have a little bit of a crush on Dannielle. XD) and Stageit (You can watch live mini concerts that artists set up online. Obviously interest depends on who's playing and you still have to show up at a specific time, but no travel, no crowds, no annoying people screaming in your ears, no standing for hours on end. You can just sit in front of your computer in your PJ's. HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT? I totally bought a ticket for Bradley James of Five Times August on the 6th. :P).

☁ Hikago peeps: Favor? Can we get some other topics going on the support thread? Please? ANYTHING. It's really super awkward right now and I think it might be preventing other people from posting anything. It is sad making. :(

☁ I put in for vacation time next month- a whole week and a half. Happy birthday to ME! It will be delicious. :3 I haven't really figured out what I'm going to DO for a week and a half, but that's part of the appeal, isn't it? WHATEVER I WANT. :D

☁ This whole favoritism game a couple of people are playing is getting really old really fast. Let's put it this way- if a guy that barely works has noticed, it's a problem. Henry got elected to cover register for a few minutes so I could do my photo stuff at the end of the night. We were both kind of "Bzuh?" about it because he was not the only person available, and little miss perfect wasn't doing anything. Henry was like, "well, she has senority," with an eyeroll, because of course she's barely been there at all compared to the rest of us. To which I responded, "Jeremy wants to fuck her, so she gets to do whatever she wants."   "Well said." XDDD

☁ Why is cologne so expensive? Seriously. It's kind of ridiculous. On the upside- new cologne. More of the Adidas Moves, which is my happy smell, and then I got Usher He, which I -love- but I'm not sure how it's going to work with my body chemistry, so we'll see.

☁ Finished off Hetalia Axis Powers finally. I'd kept putting it off, but I only had 10 episodes left, so might as well finish it, right? Overall? It had it's moments, but eh. I can take it or leave it, really. *shrug*

☁ I started Suikoden III for a bit. I'm reminded quite vividly why I didn't get terribly far into it the first time: the camera is awkward, movement is awkward, graphics are awkward, battles make no freaking sense...  it doesn't feel like a Suikoden game, and I don't mean that as a compliment. I'm trying to give it a chance, especially since I'm still in chapter 1, but. *sigh*

☁ FUCK. I've started to work on the BG playlist, which will be a work in progress for a few days (it's day 2 and I'm in J. XD)... I just got bunnied. I won't say whether it's or not it's something I can actually use for BG (I've got to keep SOME secrets ^_~), but either way it's with a character that I am absolutely NOT comfortable writing. Fuck fuck fuck.

☁ Speaking of bunnies, I had an old evil bunny rear it's ugly head at me yet again other day while Pye and I were discussing BG. She kept trying to tell me that bunnies were cute. The following conversation ensued:

Ver: Pye, it's *******. It's not cute, it's a disaster waiting to happen. >_<
Pye: okay yes, it is
Pye: >_> I mean. it will be troubling

...that's comforting. -_- Sad thing is, the disaster fic is probably the best idea I've got. I have a short list, but everything is half baked at best. *facepalm*

☁ Hikago peeps- don't forget about [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  sign ups! They end TODAY, so if you were planning on signing up and haven't yet, go ahead and do it! Also remember the support thread too, even if you're not writing this time around. Readers are totally awesome too. :D

☁ LJ: FAIL. I know it's not their fault, really, but that doesn't make the recent issues any less ANNOYING AS HELL. I guess it really makes you realize how much time you spend on a site when it's down, though. I've been kind of left going, "Er, now what?" a lot of the time since this whole thing started. XD Oh, and is it just me that's still having problems? LJ still won't load half the time. :/

☁ Totally getting sick, I can feel it in the back of my nose and throat. I know I'm due for it, but. DO NOT WANT!

☁ I got my replacement mastercard in the mail today. Yaaaay. Though I still have yet to get a bill from March. I don't know whether that's something I should be worrying about yet. <_<

☁ My workplace has decided to change weekly paychecks into biweekly paychecks over the summer. Which, quite honestly, BLOWS. They're giving us all this bullshit about how it doesn't affect how much money we get... yeah, actually, it does. Bigger paychecks mean that more money gets taken out in taxes. So effectively, it affects us like a paycut. This in addition to the fact that insurance is going up again this year. Thanks, guys. Really. Not to mention that the first week without a paycheck is going to hit hard financially- especially since the way they have it planned, we'll only get paid for a partial week. Do they not realize that when they pay their employees like shit, said employees can't afford to last two weeks on half a week's pay? Apparently not. Bastards.

☁ Because EVERYONE IRL seems to be doing this to me lately: Why is it that people don't get that if I have headphones on, I AM NOT INTERESTED IN CONVERSATION? Seriously, how hard is that to figure out? I am clearly listening to music/ watching something/ avoiding talking to you. Unless there's some kind of emergency, go away. Jeez.

☁ Apparently brand for Greek yogurt matters? I didn't know that until I ended up trying a new one when the store didn't have what I usually get. Oh. My. Freaking. GOD. Apparently, Stonyfield > Yoplait > Chobani, at least to me. I don't know if it's the organic thing or what, but that shit is AWESOME. Especially since Yoplait recently changed theirs, so it's not as good as it was. Biggest problem is that it's also expensive- $2 for a small container. Ugh. Figures.

Also food related- note to self, the cheese pizza lean pockets aren't bad. Hmm.

☁ It occurred to me today that I didn't have a playlist for smutting- just something generic to help with the writing process. Huh. Lish wanted me to post it (and there's a few suggestions from her on here too), so here you go. Just remember that some of these are random. And actually, there's a couple I don't even like but acquired somehow. XD Also, I haven't used this yet. So. I make no claims as to how well this helps. If anybody happens to have any other suggestions, let me know. :D

This is totally longer than I thought it would be. XD )

Mostly Food. Huh.

☁ Note to self: Edy's Slow Churned Light in the Caramel Delight isn't as good as Haagen Dazs' Dulce de Leche- but it's an acceptable substitute. Less calories for more, too- the Dulce de Leche is 290 for 4 oz, whereas the Caramel Delight is 190 for 5.8 oz. Sweet deal!

☁ Saw Tangled- it was cute, standard Disney fare, but it wasn't AMAZING!!! like I'd heard it was. A little disappointing on that score. For sheer entertainment value, I'd still rather watch the (somewhat) older stuff. Give me Mulan, Pocahantas, Hercules, The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch. (*cough* Historical issues aside for some of that <_< ). Disney does their best work when breaking their "helpless princess" mold. I just wish they'd do it more often.

...maybe I'm just getting old, I thought Princess and the Frog was "meh" too. XDDD

☁ Went to Juicy Burger with my sister for the first time on Wednesday. I've been hearing for FOREVER that they were ZOMGSOGOOD. I'll give credit where it's due, they make a mean chicken sandwich- which is grilled, by the way. They don't put mayo on it unless you ask. Plus it has two big slices of tomato and a bunch of lettuce. The worst thing there is the bun, so I can't feel terrible about it. SO GOOD. The fries, however, left a lot to be desired. Very greasy and they definitely could've been cooked a bit longer. Probably won't get those again. I don't mind splurging on fries sometimes- I love me some french fries- but they should at least be worth it, damn. XP

☁ Been listening to this song pretty much on repeat since yesterday... but I'm not going to tell you guys what it is, because it's pinging me a bit for the EVIL BG BUNNY and I don't want to make myself even more obvious than I probably would be if I end up including something with that. If I submit it for BG. Ehehe. ^_^;;;

Also if I end up doing some kind of weird Mulan/Hikago crossover thing at some point, I'm totally blaming my playlist. Just saying. >(

☁ Stuck in Suikoden II. Stupid Neclord Abomination monster thing keeps killing me. >( Doesn't help that Freed Y is freaking USELESS and you're forced to have him in your party. *growls* I'm actually half considering going around and leveling up some and coming back to it... it's really, really early in the game for that already. GROAN.

☁ Got bunnied at work. The good news is that it'll work for BG and I'm positive I can get it over the 1k word minimum. The bad news is. Um. All I can really say without giving it away is that I'm not sure I want to go there. *kicks bunny* It's an idea I would LOVE to mess around with, but... :/ I guess we'll see. So far it's the best idea I've got, but hopefully something else will come up.

☁ I was going through some music trying to come up with a BG playlist (which is incredibly difficult this time, urgh), and this song came up. As always with songs, not 100% accurate, but mostly. Appropriate song is appropriate. I'm working on it. :)

verloren1983: (Cry)
(from [livejournal.com profile] viridian_magpie )

This was like pulling teeth, just so you guys know. It takes a lot for a song or other media to get me to cry, so there aren't a lot of these to begin with. Plus if something has that effect on me, I tend to avoid playing it. So... this required going through my music collection, which isn't exactly a quick venture. Also I made a conscious effort to make sure everything on this list is something I would've put on the list a year ago- all of these are at least a little older, actually. So it's pretty guaranteed that the way I feel about these now is the way I'm going to feel about them in the future. ^_^;;;

Feeling pretty emotionally raw now, I think I'm going to skip starting Kuroshitsuji II tonight and just... play with the Urbz or something, heh. )

Okay, yes, I really should've written before now. I'm lazy, what can I say. I got back from Texas just fine, no problems there minus Newark changing the departure gate five times in addition to a three hour delay. Not fun, but not a huge thing either. I was also able to FINALLY change the rest of what I had in Canadian back to USD at the Houston airport. Got raped on the charges, but still ended up with almost $380. Really, it's just worth it to me to have money I can USE, you know?

☁The vacation was fun- swimming in October is SO surreal, though. My sister dragged us all over hell- beach, aquarium, park, museum, food, a street with a whole bunch of touristy shops, and there was even a last minute Nickelback concert which was awesome, by the way. I'm working on getting pictures pulled together and stuff, so hopefully those should be coming soon (as soon as Kelly retrieves her camera from her boyfriend's where she left it, that is). Probably no Nickelback pics because we were just too far away, though. Oh well. It was still a good time. When Erin was at work, her friend Ian spent time with us... talking and playing with the Wii, especially being SUPER GOOD at Mario (*cough*). Found out I apparently have pretty decent aim on Link's Crossbow Training even though I suck hardcore at first person shooters (and this is actually fun, wee!). Some pretty cool stuff and I got lots of nice goodies, but it was also good to veg out for the rest of my vacation after we got back. Just... a lot of running around everywhere. Including a day where the rain chased us all day and we had to change clothes about four times. Fuuuun. Also had the most disgusting Chinese food of my entire LIFE... note to self, never get Chinese there again. EVER.

☁Not much else going on here. As much as I was out in the sun, I don't have a tan. I'm a teeny bit darker on my forearms, but that's it. *sigh* That's the problem with being as white as I am- I have two color options. Blinding white and lobster red. At least I didn't burn. XDDD I went back to work today too, which, predictably, sucked. I also got roped into switching a shift on Sunday that means waking up at 7am. UGH. In writing news, I have a couple of songs pinging me so hard for fic it's not even funny. I'm trying to decide whether I actually want to write them or not. :/

☁There's also this character I've been thinking about a lot and unintentionally developing. She started out as a genderswapped version of a character, and she's kind of... turning into an actual OC. O_o Because I totally need another neglected OC muse in my head. Pfft.

☁Stef and I are constantly talking about places we MEAN to go, but never actually do it. Example: We've been talking about taking a trip to New York City for YEARS. The most recent thing was Montreal this past summer. However, Stef apparently has it in her head that we're going to Boston for a few days in May, and that we're actually DOING it this time. *coughcough* I won't hold my breath, I don't think. Still... I've never been to Boston. So if we do go, it should be interesting. It appeals to the history geek in me. :3 We'll see what happens.

☁Wouldn't mention this except it's a total "We need to write this on a calendar!" type moment. My mother actually made a positive comment about my hair. THAT WASN'T BACKHANDED. O_O I've been coloring my hair a dark auburn color lately. I still haven't totally decided whether I like the red or not, but that's a whole other thing... my mom told me today that the color looks nice on me. *dies of shock* I think she still hates how short it is, but hell, I'll take it.

☁Because it amuses me... a snippet of conversation from the other day, when we were discussing Dragon Age. Specifically, Alistair, who it seems the general girlgaming population has a thing for. Which I kind of get, but... eh. *shrugs*

Ver: Alistair is totally the fun older brother type to me.
Fei: Yeah but Ver you are like the gayest person
Ashe: lmaaaooo truefax

...am I that obvious? <_<

☁Oh, somewhat related, I totally forgot- I think I got hit on by a cashier in Galveston... a female one. O_o She called me beautiful twice in the time it took her to ring me up for one item (tampons, embarrassingly enough, GOD). Unfortunately I didn't manage to do anything about it besides blush a lot and look around to try to figure out who she was talking to. XD

1. Finished Lost in Blue 2. Overall... eh. It's alright. Not one I'd discourage people from buying, but I wouldn't be all "zomg you have to play this game!" either. It's sort of addicting at the time though. XDDD

2. I was also very very bad and bought "The World Ends With You". I keep hearing it's SO good. And hell, it's Squeenix, and I have yet to play a bad game from them, so whatever. Nevermind that I'm supposed to be saving for a computer. <_< I only just started playing that, so my only comment at the moment is that the art style is very different for any video game, much less a DS game. I like it. And the fighting style is VERY weird. I'll let you guys know what I think as I get further into it. ^_^

3. Got pulled out by Mom yesterday for lunch (on me, of course -_-) and Walmart- I spent money there, too, but it was on socks (five bucks for a pack of ten or something, woot!) a lunch bag for work so when I pack food it doesn't get crushed, and much needed shirts for work, since I realized the other day that half of my work shirts are wrecked. Cheap clothes are good when you know you're going to wreck them anyway~ So I can't really complain too much there, except I did get a non-work shirt that I couldn't resist. I've been looking for a Happy Bunny shirt with the "cute but psycho" thing on it for AGES! XD

4. Akichan prompted me to find my tarot cards. I did a reading for her, probably the second time I've used those cards and the first time I've used that particular book for interpretation... and it was a clear, accurate reading. O_O Holy hell. First time THAT'S ever happened to me, let me tell you. XD I think I like this book. It's the one that came with the damn cards- go figure. Those books are usually crap. I still don't like how it doesn't give you a meaning for reversed cards, but I guess you can't have everything. I'm thinking I'll try this for myself later and see what happens. ^_^

5. I've been trying to look up the bands that'll be at Edgefest on Myspace that I'm not familiar with- so that way, when I know the lineup, I know if there's anything I can skip. There's nothing I've found that's bad so far, and on the upside, I've found a new band that I like- Cinder Road. Yay!

It's all raining and disgusting out. Making me sleepy. *yawns* I should probably try to do something productive. I guess.

(Sneaking on my sister's computer for a few minutes- I'll check my flist and everything when I get home from work later. Love you guys. <3)

So yesterday was pretty cool, with the concert and everything, with the exception of a couple of things. 

The concert itself... okay, a lot of it was boring because I didn't know the bands or whatever... though there was this one band with a lead female singer... I just wanted her to stop singing and keep talking. Very, very sexy speaking voice. *_* Anyway, the two reasons I went- Sum 41 and Simple Plan- were ZOMGAWESOME. So it was worth it. They were handing out flyers as we were leaving, for Edgefest next month... normally I'm pretty "meh" about Edgefest, but this... I looked at the flyer and promptly squeed and said I had to go. EVERCLEAR IS PLAYING. Everclear. Which happens to be my favorite band in the history of ever. Plus POD, Filter, and... damn, I can't remember the other one that I'd like to see. But ZOMGEVERCLEAR. *flails* I have to go. At least I can get Kelly to go with me for that- she really likes POD. She was all "zomghavetogo" right along with me.

Mmkay, I've been on Erin's computer long enough I think- way longer than I intended originally, actually, this was just supposed to be a drive-by kind of entry. XD I'll see you guys tonight and catch up. Bye~ <3

1. On the computer, but not on AIM. I just... don't feel very social today. Sorry guys. <3

2. Yesterday at work was HELL. I don't really want to get into it too much right now, I just don't feel like it, but yeah. Complete hell. And the best part? 99% of it was coworker suck, and the two main people that caused the suck- I'm working with tonight. *sigh* I'm tempted to call in so badly, you have no idea. And the only reason I can come up with against doing it is 'well, you really shouldn't...' I probably won't, though, because I hate calling in, and I'm a coward. As it is I was THIS close to walking out yesterday. I would've gotten fired, but I didn't care all that much at that point. Anyway. New subject, yeah? XD

3. It's about that time to start getting the summer round of music on my mp3 player~ Of course, that also requires going through the disaster are that is my music folder, and I really don't want to deal with it. XD Maybe that'll be a project for my 'weekend.' Or something. I need to organize my pictures too, but that's... considerably less immediately important. Really... I need to go through everything on my external hard drive. XD And I should really boot up Kuwabara at some point and make sure he's clean. I think I put some anime and stuff on him when I was using him for non-internet stuff, I should get that off. ^_^;;;;;

4. Stef ordered the second DDR pad on Wednesday morning- it arrived on Thursday. O_o Not that I'm complaining, but you know, what the hell are the chances of that happening ever again? XD

5. *kicks Rapidshare* Stop making me wait so long between downloads, damn you. >_< I'm not going to pay you just so I don't have to wait anywhere from 20-45 minutes between downloads (usually around 30). Ugh.

6. I'm in very, very big trouble, and that's all I'm going to say about that for right now. ^_^;;;;

7. I should work on editing the [profile] ihikago stuff that's overdue. Or writing for [community profile] blind_go, because the word count there is still ZERO. *sigh* I don't feel like it. Both of those involve effort that I'm not really willing to put in right now. But then again... chances are I won't tonight either, after dealing with Mike and Mary's bullshit yet again. >_< Or there's cleaning my room or DDR, which I haven't done since Tuesday. But again. Effort.

At the very least, both of the [profile] ihikago fics are already recorded, even if I'll probably have to delete at least two minutes of crap on each one. >_< And I will be shot for destroying fic, but you know, nevermind. XD

Hmm. It feels like I had something else I wanted to say, but I can't remember now. At any rate... I have a few minutes before rapidshare is ready again, so I think I'll do that and then hop in the shower. That should make me feel a bit better. ^_^ Then maybe... I can do one of the above... or maybe curl up and read for a little while before work, who knows.

**EDIT** I seem to have lost both my ATM card and my ID. Fuckfuckfuck. I'm really hoping I left them at work last night, because otherwise... I am royally fucked. I can't go on my trip without ID, for starters... god, I can't think about this right now, it's way too upsetting. With any luck at all they're in my lab coat at work and all will be well. *tries to curb panic attack* I don't have time for this right now, I've got to get ready for work. Man.

I can't find a final accumulation total for my city, so I have to go with the one closest to me- 8.5 fucking inches of snow. Yes, I'm fully aware that to some of you on my flist, that's nothing. But also consider that I walk to work, and the place that I live hates pedestrians and you'll see my problem here. D: Walking through that much snow on the sidewalks, plus the drift and what was blown over there by the plows... not fun.

Random question: Does anyone happen to know the name of the first opening song in Fullmetal Alchemist? (Edit: Never mind, I figured it out. "Melissa"? What the hell? I never would've guessed that. So random. XDDD)

Oooh. I forgot about the shiny that is a certain site (which shall remain nameless). *is like a kid in a candy store* Oh, too much to get. Way too much to get. And it's late and I really need to go to bed. *pouts*

..........so much for not randomly restarting anymore. Damn. It just did it again. -_- And I'm really starting to think that this computer hates Firefox. Which... really kind of sucks.

Hmm. Slow day on LJ. Don't know what that's about. *shrugs*

Yeah, okay, bed. And maybe I'll have some hope of getting up a little early to write, because ZOMG I'M SO SCREWED.

*curls up into a ball and cries*

I. Hate. My. Job.

The holidays are bad enough. But today... the photo machine jammed up on me FOUR TIMES. And each time I had to spend at least ten minutes pulling out prints dripping with chemicals so that I could print more... for a little while, anyway, till it jammed up again. GAH. And the thing is? There's a decent chance it'll do the same thing tomorrow, which will mean that we'll have to shut the lab down and a tech will have to come in to fix it, which will make us even more behind. AJSDKLAJDSKLA. Basically... hell. Today was hell. And tomorrow's probably not going to be any better. When I turn on my mp3 player on my way home from work and turn it to "American Idiot" by Green Day, and have it as loud as I can stand it... that pretty much guarantees that I've had a really bad fucking day at work. Needless to say... yeah. Hello Green Day.

To make matters worse, when I got home (about 45 minutes late, mind you)... my computer kept giving an error about not being able to start windows. I completely freaked out. It ended up starting, eventually, but it took many restarts and I was in the middle of a nervous breakdown. It was pretty bad.

Although I noticed afterward that I had mail on the coffee table- Iphridian, I got your card and stuff. <333 *squishes and hearts* That made my day a bit better, so thank you. I needed it. <333

I'm drop dead exhausted, so I'm going to bed. See you guys later!

Gah I just lost my entire freaking entry because firefox decided to freeze. Stupid thing. >_< Just my luck, really. Today was not a good day. Busier than fuck at work... and that's only going to get worse as we get closer to Christmas. Shoot me now?

Speaking of which, I need to send out the rest of my Christmas cards. Like, ages ago. <_<

...Aaaaaand there's nothing in the house to eat. Lovely. Wait! I have pop tarts! XD Well, it's something. I guess I have to go grocery shopping tomorrow... at the very least get some ramen and stuff.

It's the stupid stuff, really, that amuses me though. Like... after being forced to listen to Christmas music all day, it's all that much more fun to listen to the twisted holiday songs, like Chipmunks Roasting On An Open Fire, and Ho Ho Fucking Ho, and all that. ^_^ Then again, I have a demented sense of humor. Maybe I'll put up a thing of my favorite holiday songs- and no, not just the naughty ones, either. There's this version of Silent Night that was done in Gaelic that's really gorgeous, for example. If I remember, I might do that in the next few days. Depends on how ambitious I'm feeling... as that would require going through the disaster area that is my music folder. <_<

Randomly, I really kind of want a bath. XD I normally take showers due to time constraints, but baths are nice and relaxing... however, I'd probably fall asleep in the tub at this point, and that's most definitely not a good thing for obvious reasons. Maybe tomorrow night?

And on that note, I need to go back to bed and get some more sleep. Later!

**EDIT** Wait, I do have ramen! Someone hid it on me. XD Well... at least it's something, and it's not going to be a big deal if I don't end up going to the grocery store. Yay!

March 16, 2006------ Concert stuff and regression to a thirteen year old
Mom amused me by telling Kelly and I that she looked up Fall Out Boy. LMAO. As if she’d listen to them, ever. Her only comment was “God, they’re ugly!”... to which Kelly and I had to agree. Naturally. Because as much as I like the band... they really are.

Okay, so the concert was... TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME! I was so scared that it wouldn’t be, and that it would turn out to be sucky and make me feel like crap for doing this for Kelly’s birthday, but... I really didn’t have to worry about it. The opening band was called The Hush Sound... they were cool. Had a bit of a 50's style to them, and yet at the same time it was the complete opposite of the 50's style. I don’t know quite how to explain it, but they were good. Out of the five bands that played, there was only one that we didn’t like (I swear to God, it was screaming the entire time... From First to Last, I think the band was. They were scary.)... Hawthorne Heights was good (I was a little worried after the previous band, but it ended up okay). They admitted to us being the largest crowd they’d played to, which was cool- “This is the biggest show we’ve done, so thanks for paying attention to us.” All American Rejects surprised me in that they played “Swing, Swing”, which is one of my favorite songs by them, but I wasn’t expecting them to play it because it’s from, like, five years ago. But they did. Yay. Fall Out Boy themselves were absolutely fantastic, involving the whole theater in the performance- even those of us in the nosebleed section. Actually, they kept checking on our section, “Hey, how are you guys doing back there?” or “We used to go to shows like this all the time... it’s a little weird playing one, actually... and we always had the shittiest seats...” Their energy was just fucking incredible, and there was fire on the stage and everything. Awesome. Although the smoke made me start coughing, which was SO not cool. The singer even addressed the whole nude photo thing- “Who saw me naked on the internet last week?” *lots of screaming* “Yeah, I really need to be more careful of the kind of pictures I do and where they end up.” (lol... you think?) One thing I noticed, though... you think I swear a lot? That was nothing compared to this guy. Sheesh. It bothered me a little just because I know that there were some youngish kids there (I swear, these two kids in front of us were probably all of eleven or twelve. And their chaperones didn’t really look all that happy about the whole thing.), and the profuse swearing in front of kids just bothers me. *Shrugs* It just surprised me a bit that they would allow that. Kelly and I left just a couple of songs early, mostly because Kelly has a test in the morning and it was getting toward 11 pm, but partially because we knew Erin was waiting and we felt bad. And we wanted to find Kevin and Jess and get t-shirts before the mob came. We actually found them by chance... Kelly got a pink American Rejects shirt and I got a FOB one with the tour info in it (mostly, I just wanted the tour info stuff)... should’ve been $45, but I paid $20 (whee! It was like getting Kelly’s for free!), and Jess is going to bring the shirts with her to work tomorrow. Yay. She’s my new favorite person. *Squee* We finally found Erin and ended up going to Denny’s for a bite. All in all... it was a great night. Even the migraine from hell I’ve got right now isn’t really bothering me as much as it normally would, just because I’m still psyched.

So basically, I’m the cool sister now because I just gave her the best fucking birthday present EVER and she even admitted to it. Ha. The first concert for both of us was a smashing success. Yay! And now I have strict instructions from Erin to try to find out if/when Simple Plan is playing in Albany... I laughed at her. “Do you have ANY idea how much those tickets are going to cost?” “I don’t care.” Ooooookay, Erin. They’d be an absolute fucking fortune. Hell, Bon Jovi was almost $90 per ticket... I’m not sure if they’d price Simple Plan around that or not. Hrmph.

Music: Sugar. We’re Going Down by Fall Out Boy (of course)

You know that feeling, a few seconds before you orgasm, that your body suddenly goes from “Oh my god that feels so good” to “Oh my god I need to come RIGHT NOW” ? .... has anybody else ever gotten that... not during sex? As in, doing something completely mundane that isn’t even a slight turn on? It just happened to me a little bit ago. I was sitting playing Suikoden, and all of a sudden... bam. There it was. The thing is, it’s a feeling that’s distinctly different from horny. I’m familiar with horny. This was just... “I need to orgasm right fucking now or I’m going to die.” It’s horny on a kamikaze mission. Seriously intense, and it didn’t even have the decency to go away after the inevitable orgasm- I think I came three or four times before the feeling subsided, though I’m not completely sure about that because my memory of the last half hour or so is a little bit fuzzy. Go figure. The only thing I can think of right now is that I’m SO glad this didn’t happen while I was at work... that would’ve been... extremely NOT GOOD.

The bad news: I'm still sick. Oh, and my little friend decided to visit as of Monday. The good news: I'm not as sick as I was, it's mostly down to a sore throat and a little coughing now. And the cramps are gone.

Regression to age 15 beginning...
Fall Out Boy concert in a little more than twelve hours! *squee* Kelly and I will both have cameras of the film (hers) and digital (mine) variety, so if I get any decent ones I'll probably put them up at some point. The best part about this? It turns out that Kevin and Jess are working the Pepsi for this (they work the booths, you know, where they sell all the insanely priced stuff)- and Jess said that if we find them, they can give us 50% off on whatever we want. Yay! Looks like we're going to have to make a point of finding them...
Returning to appropriate age...

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Besides, the more I'm squeeing about that, the more chance there is of my brain finally realizing that I'm quickly running out of time and to kick into gear. I have laundry to do (because I have no clothes whatsoever). I need a shower (because I smell, and I know it). I need to pack my purse with essentials for tomorrow (today, technically... I need to do this shortly because I know I'm going to forget something major, and this way I'm leaving myself enough time to rectify that. Otherwise I'll be kicking myself in the ass for days). I need to charge batteries for my camera, and get all my photography shit together. I need to get money out for possible momento buying (I'm limiting myself to $100, which is entirely too much, but I don't plan on spending all of it... and even if I do, I don't think I'll care as long as I go home with something really cool). I need to GO THE HELL TO BED at some point. That, of course, being on the bottom of the priority list ;)

As a complete change of subject (and to further my blatant procrastination)... a semi-entry I wrote yesterday:
Strange, how watching a movie can spur time travel in your brain. I'm sitting here watching The Last Unicorn, one of my favorite movies as a kid (which still has the most gorgeous soundtrack, by the way) and suddenly I'm eight years old again, sitting on the floor of my room in front of an ancient black and white 13 inch tv. And it feels so damn real, like I'm ACTUALLY sitting there. Extremely weird.

Is it just me, or are Mommy Fortuna and the harpy bits just a little bit too scary for kids to be watching?

On a fun note, this is a bootlegged copy of the movie when fox aired it some weekend along with Pretty Piggies and Yogi's First Christmas (it was some marathon or something)... the commercials are just so entertaining. Just to give you an idea on the dating of this recording: The Pepsi Arena was still the Knickerbocker Arena. There are previews for "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", "ALF", "Perfect Strangers", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", and "The Gambler: The Adventure Continues". The Long John Silver commercial with the holiday stemware was running (I used to love that one), and of course, the "I'm Sorry" Bounty commercials. *LMAO* Kelly and I used to sing that one to each other when one of us got the other pissed, which was often.

Random Quotes from the Movie:
-"There are no happy endings because nothing ends."
-"Oh my god, I'm engaged to a Douglas Fir."
-"Do something!"
"What can I do, you think the Red Bull likes card tricks?"
-"I am a bearer, I am a dwelling, I am a messenger-"
"You are an idiot!"
Alright, I'm off to maybe do some of those things I need to do. *ugh* I'll hopefully be back Thursday/Friday with news of the concert and pictures, as I won't be able to get on the computer Wednesday. Later!

Best line of the day: "Focus on one thing? One artistic goal? As. in. concentrate. for. more. than. 20. sec- oh look, a shiny thing. *wanders off* (From Chershirecaticus on DeviantArt)

Who I Am Hates Who I've Been by Relient K

I watched the proverbial sunrise
coming up over the Pacific and
you might think I'm losing my mind,
but I will shy away from the specifics...
'cause I don't want you to know where I am
'cause then you'll see my heart
in the saddest state it's ever been.
This is no place to try and live my life.

Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.
See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.
Stop right there. Well I never should have said
that it's the very moment that
I wish that I could take back.

I'm sorry for the person I became.
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.
I'm ready to try and never become that way again
'cause who I am hates who I've been.
Who I am hates who I've been.

I talk to absolutely no one.
Couldn't keep to myself enough.
And the things bottled inside have finally begun
to create so much pressure that I’ll soon blow up.
I heard the reverberating footsteps
sinking up to the beating of my heart,
and I was positive that unless I got myself together,
I would watch me fall apart.
And I can’t let that happen again
‘cause then you’ll see my heart
in the saddest state it’s ever been.
This is no place to try and live my life.

[Pre-Chorus x2]


Who I am hates who I've been
and who I am won’t take the second chance you gave me.
Who I am hates who I’ve been
‘cause who I’ve been only ever made me...

So sorry for the person I became.
So sorry that it took so long for me to change.
I’m ready to try and never become that way again
‘cause who I am hates who I’ve been.
Who I am hates who I’ve been.

(Sad thing is... I'm still at the "who I've been" part...)

  • March 1 (last I heard, anyway)- Kingdom Hearts II -

I'm so anxious to get this. Seriously. I've been waiting for this ever since I bought the first one.

  • March 7- Goblet of Fire released on video (US only) -

YAY! It seems awfully soon, but hey, I'm not going to complain. The best part is that this is on a Tuesday, so I have the day off. You know where Stef and I are going to be once she gets out of classes... (as in, at Wal-mart buying copies, and then back to my house to watch it yet again)

  • March 15- Fall Out Boy is playing at a local arena -

Since Kelly's birthday is five days after the concert, and since we both like the band... I got tickets today. *squee* The seats... okay, they're... nosebleed section, but it's also just about a month before the concert, and it's a popular band, so... I'll take what I can get :) All in all, I didn't think it was bad- tickets were $24 each, and then there was $18 in fees, so $66 total. And add $20 or so for the Goblet of Fire DVD, and that's Kelly's birthday... coolness. Only thing I have to figure out is how we're going to get there : /

I'm thinking about getting a LJ subscription, but I'm not convinced it would be worth it. If anyone reads this that has one, could you let me know whether you think it's worth the money?
