CTs:

--Watched "Princess and the Goblin" today for the first time since I was... probably 5. I saw a brief bit of it in Germany eight years ago, but until today, I hadn't seen it the whole way through. Ah, nostalgia.

--Gonna go see Harry Potter 6 tomorrow with two of my friends! Sure, I have to take a bus becasue parking is horrible downtown, but it'll be worth it. (I hope. I hear it's pretty good.)

--Family graduation party (finally) on Sunday. I'm a little put off by it for some reason. Not like it's a fancy party or anything, but I just don't like being in the middle of things, being asked what I'm going to do with my life... it makes me a bit insecure, I guess.

--Too. HOT! It's still 79 degrees out, and it hit 91 a couple hours ago. At least the basement is nice and cool.

aww..that's bad..i hope the connection get better.


I don't think it's the connection that's the problem, but whatever, I'll be back home Tuesday night.

@Little Washu: Happy early birthday! biggrin.gif

CTs:

-Writing chapter summaries is harder than it sounds, mostly because Arakawa made FMA so darn complicated.
-Not looking forward to another 13 hours on the plane on Tuesday, though I am excited (and sad) to go back home...
-Wait, on second thought, do I have two homes, or a hometown and a house where I live?
-One of my old friends sent me an email last night, and I realized how much I missed her and wanted to see her. Unfortunately, we live about 1,000 miles away from each other. sad.gif

Just drinking diet crap won't help if you want to loose weight. If you don't want to exercise then at least walk whenever possible instead of driving/bus/horse and cart.
jacksparrow589
alchemist x--Exercise wasn't my thing, either, but I just found a couple activities that I liked and kept on. I still walk 3-4 mi when I have the time, even if I've walked elsewhere that day. Drinking lots of water (especially before meals) also helps quite a bit.

CTs:

--Well, HP6 was pretty good, but it did feel like a "bridging the gaps between 1-5 and 7" a lot of the time. I still liked it, though.

--I HATE the downtown bus system. Why did they decide to move 2/3 of the buses to one street? The buses I need are consistently 15-30 min. late. I'll take my 5 min. late on the street it was originally on, thanks. At least there was a mall closeby so that I could keep busy while waiting.

--Have to change the oil on my car tonight. Whoop-dee-doo. dry.gif
Forgiven
-Professor Snape is the Half Blood Prince. (I agree with Chi. Added the Spoiler tag :) ~ T.)

-The new Harry Potter movie was kinda slow and boring. It was good though. Ain't gonna lie. But the fifth one was better. Like, the last 30 minutes was ACTION! But this one, did not. It had some action, but not enough really. I guess I had to read the book to appreciate it more. I knew I should have read the books when they first came out. >_<

-Did anybody else think that Malfroy was being an emo fag?

-My cousin woke me up this morning telling me to make bacon. Because I am the only one in my family who can make bacon correctly. But then the grease poped out at me, now I have like, 10 little burns all over my arm. They don't really hurt like they did the first 5 mins. I look deformed.

-Aahahaha. Joel McHale looks like Dean Winchester. laugh.gif

-My parents and cousin went to a friends house tonight. But I ain't gonna be babysitting for long tonight. My mom has to be at work at midnight, so they should be getting home here in a bit. I hope they don't forget my Taco Bell. I wish they would turn their cell phones on already.

-Sam Winchester or Dean Winchester?

-So many movies that I want to see this year. Like 9. Yes. There is a new movie coming out Sept.9. (go figure) It's a Tim Burton movie. I luff him. I'm excited. biggrin.gif And of course Sherlock Holmes, and my husbands new movie Public Enemies. The Collector! Also, Orphan. I have been waiting for that movie since January. Just six more days!

-Does anybody else think that the movie theaters volume got, louder? Its been since last March since I've been to a movie theater when I saw Juno. Then again, I did see the Hanna Montana movie (it's actually a pretty good movie. Its just one of those movies where at the end, your like, "it's over already?") Anyways, I saw that in the dollar theater two Wednesdays ago. And it wasn't all that loud. Kinda like when you turn your TV on all the way.

-I'm afraid I won't be going swimming at all this summer. I wish I had a car. Then I would just drive my self to a pool every single day.

smile.gif I know. The thing is, I counted my calorie intake from just pop and it is well over 3000. Yet I remain at the same weight. I walk 2-3 miles a day to work and back and walk other places as well [due to not having a car] so I figured. If I am drinking diet instead I will loose some weight, not much but some. Plus I don't like diet as much so I wont drink as much either. I don't need to loose much weight. I just want to look attractive shirtless.

Forgiven - stop posting spoilers for the Harry Potter film, it's unfair on those who don't know the story. As for Malfoy being an "emo"...he is in the book...with every reason to be I'd say.

*I really need to have another clear out of DVD's. I have well over 100 now and at least 10 of them I haven't even watched yet.

*Then again, the same can be said for my book collection.

-I had such a looooong day yesterday. We went to see the Bird's Nest, the Water Cube, and the Forbidden City. Good thing the sun wasn't out, but it was hot and humid. We took a lot of pictures and I bought some postcards to send to my friends.
-My aunt bought me a new headband today, it's pretty wide and light purple.
-I tasted some Japanese chocolate that my mom's friend gave us. It wasn't terrible but not as good as Hershey or Dove.
-I checked my grade online and I'm happy that I got straight A's, but I'm ranked 20 out of my class of 648. I feel kind of...disappointed. Maybe I'm just being too much of a perfectionist.

Edit: Rargh, I'm very pissed off right now because I was working on the chapter 3 summary (NEED VOLUNTEERS BTW) when the page changed and I lost EVERYTHING that I'd already typed. I swear I didn't click anything and the stupid computer just changed by itself. Now I have to retype all of it *grumble grumble* (Sorry, I just wanted to rant a little)

kkg: agh, that sucks! D: I hate when my computer does that. (and yes, it has >_> )

I haven't posted on here in a while.. I'm having some good stuff and sad stuff.

-Starting off with sad ones, if anyone still remember me talking about my guinea pig Viivi?
..Well, she's gone now. I found her dead in her cottage on Friday night. I don't know how is that, she had her doctor checkup at the same morning and she looked just fine. She had lost lots of weight because of her problems though, so my guessing is that her heart couldn't take it anymore. D:
been crying like there's no tomorrow because of this, since Viivi was the SWEETEST guinea pig I EVER had, and it just saddens me that she had to die so young no matter how much we tried to help her.
(but that's how it always is with rodents, they're so sensitive to everything. ;w; poor girl.)

-now her sister Wanda is getting really lonely, too.. We're thinking of going to look for a new guinea friend for her today, so that she won't get depressed and stop eating, too. That would be too much for me!

-yes, I care about my guineas a lot.. sorry for writing so much about this.

-and one rant competetly unreliable to everything: Why the HELL did Capcom have to keep the old controls in Resident Evil 1's wii edition? Seriously, how am I supposed to survive from the zombies when I can't even turn around and run away from them properly? Gah! DX
(I know, I know, it's supposed to make the challenge I guess.. but it's too much if I get killed by the VERY FIRST zombie that appears in the game. sleep.gif )

And now a little update:

-We got a new guinea friend for Viivi's sister Wanda yesterday. They aren't in the same cage yet, but seem to come along just fine. biggrin.gif (Wanda actually seems even happier than usual.)
The new guinea pig is just adorable - Dark grey with black face and paws (except for the right hindleg, and butt, which are both light brown ). and her hair is really, really LONG! She's only 3 months old, so she's quite an energy pack. I had lots of troube to keep her not to jump off my bed when she curiously ran around and checked her surroundings. (I still need to make up a name for this piggy.)
-..but I also got pee'd on me 3 times yesterday. This new piggy seriously needs to learn that I'm not her toilet! D: <

As lovely as she is though, I will never forget my old guinea. She will stay in my heart with all the lovely memories, forever. smile.gif

Why.. does being.. a teenager.. suck.. so.. HARD?? It's almost ridiculous. Or maybe it isn't the teenager part at all. Maybe it's just life in general. Which in that case would be pretty tragi-comic, in a way... Well, time to quit bitching and start being.. I don't know, creative?

ANYWAY, I am not exactly looking forward to starting school in a few weeks, seeing how I'm a retarded dropout taking a second, retarded shot at not flunking like some effing retard. So break me a leg, or wish me to break a leg, or how is it that you say? Maybe I should just break someones leg to blow off some steam?

He was drinking tea on my couch last week. At my birthday party. He used the cup with a kitty on it. We discussed Uncomfortable-Plot-Summaries and TvTropes.


He was the first person I shared my FMA fansubs with, back when I was copying them on VHS to pass around because I had limited technology for dvd burning. He loved Roy. We made duct tape halloween cosplays.

Tagging along with the family to pick berries and fruit and stuff in the forest only wearing a tanktop and shorts was a BIG MISTAKE.

Yeah. I saw him at a campaign rally last year on my birthday so that was pretty cool. My brother shook his hand; I was considerably jealous. I didn't get a ticket, but one of my friends did. The gym holds about 2300 people, I think, and the city I live in has over 400,000, so the chances were pretty slim anyway, not to mention tickets were open to everyone else in the state, too. Butttt, when I go back to school and walk in the gym, that's a rather exciting thing to know that I'll graduate in the same building where Barack Obama came and made a speech in.

It's pretty ridiculous; the tickets are going for $50+ on Craigslist.

I hope your applications work out, and you feel better soon. An acquaintance of mine has swine flu, though he says it feels just like the regular flu. He kinda sounded excited, but I guess it's something to tell posterity. Haha.
