I'm doing senior variety show because well... my girlfriend bothered me till I said yes, but so far I am going to be a windup doll with three other guys for my friend's performance of some crappy Gwen Stefani song, I am gonna be a gangsta just standing for my other friends' "I'm Just a Love Machine" skit, and possibly doing Afternoon Delight with my friends, haha. Oh lord, how did I get dragged into this...
Razzy
Vashu- It's weird; it's a project where we have to use an object or picture that has a "good silhoute" (we're NOT drawing silhoutes, though XD), so I'm trying to find a picture that would be good for that. I think I found a Mushishi picture that I can use, but I might just end up drawing my dog.

My thoughts:
- Agh, so much information to write about Martin Luther King Jr. How am I supposed to organize it all into an essay form? DX

^I know an amazing Naruto one, if you want to see it.

-Now my avie and siggie are all Negima! + 1 Kakashi

^ Ooh! Okay! PM it to me sometime! ^.^ But I'm going to bed soon I think, so you don't have to rush.

My thoughts:
- I can't wait until my skirt for my Akira Kogami costume gets here!
- I'm so excited for Halloween now that I'm almost done with my costume. I just need to work on the wig.
Little Washu
^I made a Fei-ku one, and it's amazing! Looks like the real school uniform!!!

Here's that image:

That one is cool, Washu! *prints* Thanks! ^^

My thoughts:
- I would take a shower, but someone already turned on the dishwasher. T^T
Little Washu
Your welcome ^^. It's one of my favorite images.

-I drew Fei-ku in Sharpie! But I had to keep stopping because the smell was making me dizzy. Here's the drawing if anyone wants to see it:

Why is it that my friend honestly doesn't expect me to say anything in regards to a DA journal entry that ends with "I've been hurting myself...'kay? Let's just say exactoknives are fun."

And, is it wrong for me to want to go up there and beat her senselessly and relentlessly with a baseball bat? She doesn't seem to realize when she causes pain to herself, she causes pain to me.

The hair dye fumes must be getting to her. Or she's a genuine selfish moron. Probably both.

King of No Pants, my liege! Do you still wish for me to be your Queen of No Panties?

(in other words I remember that converstation)


But hey, if not wearing panties will get me an A I'll go for it. >.> Too bad my instructors are for the most part female.



Gosh, I had such anxiety last night. College is finally sinking in. On top of not having a paper done on time, I also have to read Pride and Prejudice in two weeks, finish some more crap for English, reread my notes in Earth Sciences and I waste 6 hours of my week in a looney drama class where I feel embarrassed. Add that with all the stuff from August...argh....


At least getting that costume will brighten my day and next weekend is Thanksgiving for us Canucks. Some good food, a shopping trip, and time with family and friends (along with the pre-ordering of PW3) should get my spirits back up....

Man, I haven't eaten all day. I woulda' ate pizza, but I have a theory. School cafeteria pizza is really cardboard with melted rubber on it.

-I can hear my neighbor yelling at his dog to 'shut up'.
-I feel so frustrated right now DX
-The school cafeteria doesn't have any more cookies to sell D:

I can't believe it's nearing that time of year already!

Should I try for writing another novel this year? I made my quota last year, but it was a bit of a disappointment.

A wedding costs however much you want it to cost, I guess. There is a fee for the paperwork and stuff, but past that, it's all optional. If you want to have guests, feed them, etcetera, it just depends on to what extent, how and where you want to do that.

Ugh, seems so expensive already. I think I have a budget of about $20,000 . . . how many people would that feed? mellow.gif

I remember reading a magazine article about several wedding budgets. One was a 25,000 dollar wedding, paid by the bride's parents, and it was all fancy with the works- the fancy food, fine gown, a large tent and live entertainment. Then there was a 5,000 dollar wedding which was moderate, and then there was a couple who spent a few hundred dollars, paying for a tiny ceremony with a few close friends, and put the saved money into a long honeymoon vacation.

I doubt you still have that article though. ohmy.gif Looks like it'd be useful.

No, not yet. Not even engaged yet, and of course I'd tell all of you before it actually happens (the wedding, not the engagement, since goodness knows when the proposal would come?). smile.gif

I would guess that most of the wedding budget goes towards feeding people and renting reception room. But I'm also not sure what catering prices are per person. $10 meals seem reasonable, but I've always been a cheapskate. *shrug*

(Also, I think I may have remembered wrong; I think the fanciest wedding was 50-100 thousand dollars.)

I honestly don't know what I'd do in that situation. It seems silly to spend so much money on anything, but maybe I'll feel different when I grow up and know what it's like to be all twitterpated in a real relationship, when I'll know what it's like to want to settle for nothing less than the most glamorous expensive gown to show off and pink unicorns that fart sparkles for my lover and I to ride upon majestically.

My practical side says that I'd have a tiny ceremony and a party at a family member's house, and my cynical practical side says I'll probably never get married anyway.

After all, I still don't understand how people actually pay as much as they do for cars or all that other stupid crap they waste money on. Why on earth do you need a brand new car that costs a whole year's salary? Why? Do not understand!

One of my art teachers has his own website. I did not know that O.O

-I wish my mom would get home already.
-Today there were cops all around the side of my friends house, and her neighbors girlfriend was being put into an ambulance while wearing handcuffs. I was making my hands like a camera and pretending to make a 'COPS Live' video.

Thanks to all for the support on the art thief, she informed me my picture just looked like hers (apparently she's as thick as two short planks). She is still submitting stolen artwork, and I'm still going to report her, but at least they have taken quite a few down now. What even worse is that no-one seems to grasp that so many different styles of art clearly represent a thief.....mine wasn't even that good a picture...

Want to know something amusing though? She submitted a pic of Fai from Tsubasa and called it Al...bless

The job I applied for has been re-advertised, they never informed me my application was rejected but I know now it was. However its in my right to find out why it was rejected so I'm going to write to them till they let me know.

As far as Weddings go, we get quite a few wedding dresses in our laundrette, one came in the other day that had cost 7000, and she went and got fake tan all over it. Luckily, we were able to get it all out.

I also do not understand the point of "investing" in fancy cars. What does it matter as long as it runs and is reliable?

I was called a dumb b*tch today at school. I thwacked him over the head and I regret nothing. He's still a hot guy and he had the cutest cry of pain, though...

Monday at art class I made the angriest painting ever... It turned out abstract when it was supposed to be surrealist... Heh.

I hate the books we're reading. Way too spiritual. Where's the grittiness?!?! Eh?!?! The coldness?!?!

^No it's not.


Ever heard of S&M? The fact you think a guy had "the cutest cry of pain" demonstrates you're very likely heading down the path of a domme.


And I would know. I happen to be a bit of a sadomasochist.

But regarding Nate, I'd be more concerned with her liking people who treat her badly. Reminds me of an old loserz comic that basically said the worse you treat a girl the more she'll like you and "girls with low self esteem are easy." That comic was so depressingly accurate...

Well, it's true. XP But seriously, only a bit. I'm not really into the really painful stuff, like electrocution. O_o That's just too much.

This reminds me of when I had to school a bunch of youngsters who had S&M, Sadism and Masochism totally wrong. They thought sadism was what S&M is or some crap, and totally didn't know jack about it, yet acted like they did. I hate when kids are like that. I mean, I know quite a bit on the subjects, but I don't know everything, and I don't act like I know everything.

I put up with that bs from a former male friend of mine for years, I'm not putting up with it from my man, if I even get a man.

I have to agree. Still, I think the possibility of her ending up in S&M relationships is a possibility too.

The only real commentary I have on the Death Note murder case is that it's depressing that we get high profile cases like this in which bad apples screw it up for the rest of us who can discern between fantasy and reality and actually maintain a healthy metaphorical relationship with the fiction they create and enjoy.

I feel like this is another strike against those of us who enjoy quirky, odd, or dark fiction, especially in the eyes of those who don't understand it and would seek to have it banned. Whether it's with comic books, Stephen King novels, or that freaking Catcher in the Rye. (I seriously don't get how that became the most banned book in our country. It's so tame, and not even that good.) There will always be one buttmunch who was mentally effed-up to begin with, who goes and does something atrocious, connects it to his preferred fiction, and ruins it for the rest of us.

So I was walking home from school today, minding my own business, when all of the sudden some boy in a car yells "SLUT, HO!" at me.

huh.gif

You know, the thought process of that kid [as well as a good chunk of the hick boys at my school] was probably like

"HAY LOOK, SHE'S A GIRL, AND THEY'RE NO GOOD EXCEPT FOR BRINGING US FOOD, AND BEING SEXTOYS! LET'S INSULT HER!"

Then I get home and tell dad that, and he said some boys yelled at him the other day for walking, going "HEHEH LOOK AT YOU WALK, KEEP WALKIN', KEEP WALKIN'", which leads me to believe A - people are extremely fricken lazy and don't walk anymore, or B - people in this town have no lives whatsoever and have nothing better to do than insult people.

I swear, one of these days they'll insult the wrong person, and they'll get a bullet in the face. And then I will lawl.

Thoughts:

-Wasn't there some discussion a page or so back about why people would want to spend money on cars? I kind of used to wonder that myself and then I got a friend who's car obsessed. And his car is nice. It's so much cooler than my little one D:
-I have some sort of half-written fanfiction now. It needs....more. What to write, what to write....and where's my beta when I need her?
-So right now I'm stuck listening to the same song over and over while I try to come up with some sort of idea for the rest of this chapter. Am I the only one who listens to the same song repeatedly while writing? O_o
-I feel like drawing something but I have no idea what.
-Even after the 200th time listening to this song, I still like it (The Music- David Usher) I feel like finding the acoustic version on Youtube...
-Yeah, that sounds good.

Here's the million dollar question.

What do you do with a comic book that you've already wasted a year of your life bringing to approximately 75% of completion, but now hate?

That's at least 70 solid hours of work. On something I can't stand anymore and probably won't even show to anyone if it's finished. WRRYYYY!
