Title: What made your day today?
Post by: Revolutionaren on January 18, 2007, 02:53:04 PM
omg. I'm actually starting a thread *prepares to be maimed*

What made your day today?

Today, we've been having gale force winds and the roof of a building at my college blew off.
So, us actual college students got sent home, so the classrooms we just freed up could be used for the pupils of the school bit. (It's like a combined school/college. Or sixth form. If that means anything to you)
And parent's evening is cancelled.
But they can't cancel school tomorrow because all of my year have an external exam (yeah, so, it's general studies, but it's still an A-level)

Good times.

yay more threads!

...I've heard about those winds. My friend was sat in the lecture hall at uni, and a tree came down over the carpark. T_T  Yet they still have to go to lectures... ((I'm not having nightmares about her being squished by falling trees. Nope, not at all. >.> Stupid imagination...))

XD off 6th-form = YAY. 

...I'm glad I didn't have to take general studies. XD I even got out of doing key skills. Though I didn't actually WANT to get out of that one...

 ((Teacher: Your GCSE grade D is higher than the ICT Key Skills, so it would be a waste of your time. ~ Me:... BUT IT'S A 'D'! Our teacher was FIRED the moment our results came in! And you can't help me strike this from my record??? D: ~ Teacher:...um. No. But you don't have to take the class? Free time? ~ Me: WOES))

As for the thing that made my day...

On wed, in our oral exam, we had to roleplay making a hotel reservation. Um. I may have made one for a Ryuuzaki Umi and Mazda Clef. XDDD ((I'd have said Madoushi, but I've been writing AU recently, so had that on my mind. ^^))

...also, the word Umi has come up in every one of my exams, and was the kanji I did for my calligraphy exam, which is bemusing/creepy/hilarious. XD

Those who read my live journal know that I rescued a dog on Friday.  I was able to get him back to his owner on Wednesday.  During the time I had him, and after, I have been ill.  This is on top of the lovely ice storms we have been having here in the U.S. Because yesterday I was able to leave the house and make it up to the clinic to be seen by the doctor. That was un eventful, I knew what I had, but I was able to get medication for it.

Anyway, to top it off today I was in the shower and noticed a rather odd blotch on my skin. Damn it all to hell! I contracted ringworm.  I am not happy. I paid another visit to the clinic.  Now I have a lovely cream to appy twice daily.  Life is always intersting here. The insanity rarely ends.

...gnyaaaaah. >.<

My family tends to have an out on finding animals - Uncle David's a vet, and lives one village over from my house. ^^;; We just turn round and say HAY! Help? But my cousins have contracted some... intresting things, over time. Never ringworm, though. Eeeek.

((Three trees down in the road where J-chan lives, but nothing's hit her yet. Two more at least down on campus. And, in Norfolk? a PIG STY FLEW ACROSS A ROAD.

... ONLY NORFOLK. XDDD Flying pigs... oh dear.))

Made my day today: Last class! All I have now is the ceremony on Mon, then I'm FREEEEE for two months! Thank God. I'm almost burnt out. >.>

Made my day: Today, my parents booked a holiday in Cornwall in Summer. So I have the house to myself for two whole weeks.
That was nice.


(Yes so, our school is missing part of a roof and we were open today, yet another school in out town lost six roof tiles and was closed.)

...I played Um Jammer Lammy for about 3 hours straight with my friends and much yelling and four letter words.

However, this weekend I have to find a job, read more Jane Austen, and figure a way to whore myself out for scholarships so that somehow I can make it to Ireland and England this summer. 

So, Um Jammer Lammy makes my day.

My christmas presents! Frm my parents! Finally arrived!

Which means that I have a) More Sharpe to read, YAY, and b) GOOD CHOCOLATE! Mmmmmmmmmmm~ also, c) a (short short) novella thing called 'I am a Dalek', which just. Dalek <3!

(There was a Terry's chocolate orange bar. It didn't survive an hour. XD)

Though I spent so long in the cold waiting for it that my arm started aching and I couldn't go to the free traditional music concert thing in osaka. But, chocolate! books! random earrings! overall, good. ^^;;;

Snow! *jealous*

Ah, well. I'm going to visit Hokkaido soon, so there should be snow there. Heee. XD ((Heeee, Daleks! I brought two posters to japan to stave off homesickness - a TARDIS one and a Dalek one. XD))

What made my day (even though it's hardly started yet...) I think I felt an EARTHQUAKE this morning! *flails* XDDD

My first earthquake! A very tiny one. It made my fridge squeak. XD

What made my day today:

Discovering I had dropped a dress size.
Which may explain why all my clothes are too big for me.
It's odd. I don't feel any thinner.
But yay! All the same.
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Milieva on January 23, 2007, 02:43:14 AM
Some of you may laugh at me, but I forgot to post this.   This actually happened yesterday.

You see my friend, Anne,  and I work together doing children's church at a church near my house. She went on a study abroad to England, and came back a few weeks ago.  The first week she was back at work she forgot them. Then we had the ice storms. So yesterday she finally brought me what I asked her to bring me.

Mars Bars!! 

Okay, for those of you who do not live in the US you may not understand why I am so excited.  We don't have them here.  The Mars company claims the the Milky Way is the same bar, but it is not.  I grew addicted to them while I was in Florida, because you see I could buy them there.  But here in Oklahoma, there is no such thing as an international food section in Wal-mart, etc..  We have the Hispanic/Asian section.

So I now have three whole Mars Bars.  I haven't had one in over a year.  I wasn't going to push my luck asking for a galaxy bar.  *laughs*  Now I owe her one pirate costume.
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Revolutionaren on January 23, 2007, 06:16:23 AM
Did you know, in Scotland, you can buy Mars Bars deep fried.
Yes, I know it sounds weird, and I was a little sceptical at first, but the mars bar is all warm and melty and mmm. Good stuff

What will make my day today:
I only have one lesson today from 9 - 10am, after that I have to wait til 3:30pm to go home.
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Down on January 23, 2007, 01:52:44 PM
...people claim that milky way and mars bars are the same thing? O_O ...that's actually weirder than calling smarties and mnms the same thing. (Those are, at least, the same idea. kinda. ...)

Never had a deep fried mars bar, though I've been to a chippy where they were on the menu. I have had deep fried potatoe with icing sugar and maple syrup, though? Which was very nice, but confused my brain just as much. XD That was at about 2am this morning - but my new jacket has really made my day today. ^^

((My christmas presents included a mixed assortment of chocolate bars from england, I've been working through them slowly - mint aero today. Mmmmmmmmmmmm~<3))
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Revolutionaren on January 23, 2007, 08:26:04 PM
Did you know they've removed the blue Smarties?
Awful, isn't it?

What made my day today:
I bought a book (for 99p. Bargain.) which was full of little ideas to make the world a better place =D

I met with a classmate to do Spanish homework and give her photocopies of the workbook and we spent two hours talking anime before we got to the homework.  Then we went to her dorm for quite a few hours and she showed me her absolutely STUNNING cosplay (started sewing in September and is psychotically talented, omfg).  She has convinced me to join her at KatsuCon~  Am going as Asuka (From Eva, not Aska-sama) in her yellow dress.  My first con; hopefully I will be able to make it.  Going as Asuka would be a dream.

SO YES, I have a new, amazingly talented and fun anime friend that I met by chance because I offered to make her copies of the workbook.  Being nice pays off more often than people think.

My biology teacher didn't maim me!
:D

I was supposed to give her some work, but didn't, then I avoided her all week, but alas! I had her today first period.
She came over to my desk, and asked me "Do you have you work?" and I replied "Yes." Then she was all "Ok!" and walked off happily.

I ... watched Naruto.
And watched Savers.

... Mostly Savers.

Fangirled a little bit.
Squeed at the fact that the Naruto fillers end in February.
Squeed at a glimpse of my baby all grown up in the new part to the series.
Got off of Youtube.
And came here.

.... And now I must go prepare for another day of school. x3
With my Narutards. <3

So My gran and I were having some sort of superficial argument when she jokingly flipped me off.  I, of course being me, told her "Well same back to you."

She goes and replies. "You don't know how."

At which point we both start laughing hysterically  as I attempt to feign contempt and indignance.

Post by: Down on February 05, 2007, 08:46:14 AM
*relieved and startled dancing* I apparently got 84% on the main listening test at the end of last term! PHEW. I was worried about that one. XD (The results I'm slowly getting through are reassuring, to say the least - 84, 85, 86 1/2. Hopefully enough to balance out the mess I made of some of my homework before I realised it counted for anything. ^^;;;)

Also, my Protecting You muses have returned! XD Every e-mail I've tried to send today have devolved into me babbling about some aspect of it or other. XD YAY! Hopefully I can start WRITING again, and stop having Crazy Vivid Dreams because my mind isn't worn out enough. ^^ All I have to worry about now is my wrist keeping up...

...well, and the fact that I've lost some fairly small but important details of the plot. ^^;;;; Reconstructing plotlines, yay? XDXDXD

((heh, I'm even babbling here... feel glad that you don't live near me, last time I did this I kept running through the house yelling at characters every few days. XD))




...does my icon-picture get to count as a thing that's made my day? It makes me giggle everytime I see it. XDXDXDXD

My friends and I FINALLY finished watching Lord of the Rings together. *sigh of relief* Twas the extended editions, and one hadn't even seen all the normal version of Return of the King, so I had to provide helpful information while not giving anything away. O_o;;;

Trying to remember what was and wasn't in the normal versions gives me a headache. XD ((can I mention this? Did they see this bit yet? Well this character - no, hang on, that turns up later on!))

yay, I can stop losing my voice through squeaking at Boromir too much! evil casting people making my favourite actor play my favourite character >.>  (I do this at Emeraude-hime, too. ^^; And Clef, of course. XD)

So my sister is attending classes to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. Well she came over this evening so we could go out and do something. Actually she is looking over my shoulder as I type this.  Anyway. She decided to attempt to take my blood pressure. "attempt" being the operative word here.

I believe it took her nearly ten minutes to position the blood pressure cuff in the correct place.  Weel, I think she finally succeeded after near fifteen mintues, but it amused me and that is all I have to report until later when I come back and edit this for the other crap I had to do today.

On the other hand, I am now back in Kyoto, where it's raining, rather than Sapporo, where there is snow piled three foot deep along the side of roads in the city and it snowed on us almost every day. T_T I LOVE SNOW.

Also I now have PSP 9 and Animation Shop.  Notice the silly icon of mine. ^.~   I have been playing with the one but haven't eperamented with the other yet.  I need a nice free day to play with it.

msn was a great invention. XD

I found the programs I needed to rip video from my DVDs so there will be a Milieva!vid up soon featuring Umi/Clef. (of course)

I just need to figure out where all of the clips I want happen to be located. The song is called "It's Beginning to Get to Me" by Snow Patrol, if you lot want an idea of it. ^.~


I am so giddy over it, I don't know what to do with myself, so I am skipping out of the house for the afternoon and going shopping. This triumph deserves a new pair of shoes or a new top, don't you think. *giggle*  I also just need to get out of the house.
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Revolutionaren on February 18, 2007, 08:36:50 PM
Ooh.
I do like Snow Patrol and that song ;D
And new shoes are always good.


What made my day today:
I did some baking, and made gingerbread hearts which are really iced, then I just as badly iced the names of my friends on them.
They were meant to be for Valentine's, but I was ill. Hurrah.

what has made my day so far: The realisation that MOKONA IS A TARDIS.

I MEAN

Bigger on the inside than the outside! Moves freely between different places in (time and) space! (the time on cephiro being divorced from that on earth...) Deceptive apperance as camoflage! (A very silly sense of humour?)

((Revolutionnaire? Am I mad??))

...those who have know idea what I'm on about should all go watch Dr Who. XDDD British (childrens) sci fi, longest running sci fi show ever, etc etc... XD No other show would ever get series ending speculation discussion on the BBC six o'clock news in amongst the politics and days headlines. XDDD

Down! You're right!
Never have I noticed this before, yes, I do think Mokona is an official Tardis
If the Spice Girls Tour bus from the Spice Girls Movie counts as an official Tardis (it's bigger on the inside, you see) than I think Mokona should easily count as a Tardis.

Knowing that Magic Knight Rayearth and Dragon Force, two Working Designs Sega Saturn titles, will be mine within the next few weeks.

Not to mention the raise on my most recent paycheck.  I got an increase of 73 cents, which drastically made a difference.  With the hours I'm pulling, I'm getting at least half a grand per check now.

I also picked up my copy of Crackdown for the XBox 360 today.  The best way to describe it is GTA mixed with super-powers or enhancing abilities.  It also came with a Halo 3 beta invite, so I get to test that out when it becomes available.

Soon I'll be able to download Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on XBox Live Arcade and I couldn't be happier.  That game rocks so much!

Yeah, I don't think I could go on from this point, so I'll save us all a lot of time where I could be rambling on in some long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic boring everyone to leave the post without reading what all else I have to say, which is something I don't really want to do because it's kind of rude, you know?

but what WILL, hopefully, make my TOMORROW is my plan to go back to sleep at 8pm and set my stupid sleeping schedule back on track. XD (I have a horrible feeling my body tries to synchronise with england.)

...and discovering secret identities? XD

and the smut. Which is being written. But slowly. XD *grins at Mils* (Though I AM very bad at it, just to warn you... ^^;;;)

Hee, glad I'm not the only one who does that. ^^


Today, though, I managed it! Got up at 9am. XD (I'd been mostly awake since 8, too.)


ETA: ...though I promptly broke the good phase by being social and going to karaoke with friends. ...until it closed at 3am and we had to leave. heh.

Though I'm stuck inside tomorrow until I've tidied my room so it isn't a DISGRACE to me they come to check my fire alarm, so HOPEFULLY I will get smut written. ^^

though I hate to think how sleep deprived I'll be. Um. XD

What made today p.2: Pancake party!!! WENT VERY WELL! XD And then karaoke, but as I now have a sore throat and no voice, I'm not sue that counts as GOOD... XDD

I somehow managed to get an A in a Religious Studies paper, which is amazing considering it's a 100 mark paper and I only a sigular paragraph for a 30 mark question, because I completely blanked.
Yes, so, it was a low A, I admit. But in the real exam I'd do better.

And my biology teacher didn't maim me for failing my biology papers. She was quite inspiring. Almost. But when she asked me what I was gonna do about it, and I then replied "Give up", she went into this massive rant as to why I will be able to pass biology.

Yes.

It has been EXACTLY ONE YEAR since J-chan and I first discovered Dong Bang Shin Gi. XDXDXDXD So today is DBSG day! ...And so I went out downtown and spent money I possibly shouldn't have on cds. XDDDDDD


...it feels a hell of a lot longer than that. heh. XDDDDDDDDDDDD

(We spent practically the entire three day weekend last year in the sitting room making cookies, watching a loop of five videos that had Gackt, L'arc en Ciel, two Dong Bang Shin Gi (one in japanese, one korean...) and one Rayearth OVA fanvid on it. Then we watched the Rayearth OVA, were in hysterics at the dub (Ascot going to the dark side. I MEAN. XDD Thank you for that, Lantis.) and made chocolate cookies with pink-lightning-of-DOOM in them inspired by the OVA. ...and ate them all watching Dong Bang Shin Gi. (On the third day, we discovered youtube...) XDDD)

My babysitting gig turned out to be easier than originally planned.    Instead of my niece and my current foster brother, it was just my foster brother.  He went to bed 15 minutes ago and I am sitting here watching the end of the Doctor Who marathon on BBCA. 

So, yeah I finally have sat down to watch an episode (actually two and a half)  of Doctor Who.  And Mils likes it.

I would gripe about the other things that happened today, but that is what LJ is for. ^.~

Episodes 6-9. Came in post. ^^ Also there were chocolates and pajamas and a packet of smash. SO, instead of going and doing shopping to have actual food for tea, I'm going to curl up with an ENTIRE SAUCEPAN of Smash, and watch Torchwood all night. ^^

ALSO THERE WAS A PACKET OF JELLY BABIES

Bad side:
I missed the my class that had an exam today, due to being an idiot.  It is a dreadfully long story.  I emailed my prof. begging for smoe sort of extra credit to give me some grade even if it is not close to half credit.

Good side:
Okay so actually this was last night, but it was still amusing me this morning. This comment train on LJ (http://community.livejournal.com/tsubasafans/133738.html?thread=383594#t383594) YouTube is so my friend since BBC-A decided to not run it for a bit.

I guess they might be doing a wait and see?

 In other news entirly, a family friend had surgery for breast cancer earlier this week, and is now, from what people have told me, at home and doing fine. Which is a relief. And J-chan sent me home made mini egg cookies in the post, which survived suprisingly well. So I'm having a good day.

Youtube is your friend... But think of it this way.  The US is a over a year behind. They have only shown the first seven episodes on BBC-America, as far as I can tell from the website. And of course after they lure me in with the damned marathon--which I only caught the last two and a half episodes of--they take it off air for who knows how long.


 
Eek, hope things work out, Mils.

She is letting me come into her office tomorrow morning and take the exam.   I am so happy.   I hope I can get most if it done in the little bit of time I will have to do so.   I shall be cutting out on a class I have never missed to do this.  But I am so happy!!!  *squee!!*  I shall beable to keep a high mark after all!!!

I...I know, it's just... ;_;

There aren't many british tv shows I watch? Actually, there aren't many tv shows I watch at all, and most of them are japanese. (for which we in europe have to wait for usually two or three times as long as those in the usa. If it ever gets here at all. But as soon as it's licenced in the usa, most of the fansubs stop. As far as I know, we still can't get MKR, except on the 'multi-region' versions which a lot of region two players don't like as well, and the quality isn't as good. Though I'll admit it's been a while since I looked...)

...And I've been watching this show my entire life. XD

so I'm kinda disappointed that I can't see it as it comes out. T_T Hell, I'd even get a tv license just so I could watch it! (In the UK, if you have a tv, you have to have a tv licence. They cost a couple of hundred pounds. (roughly 400 US dollars? A year?)  This is why I don't watch that much tv - at university, I don't have a tv, because I don't want to pay that much money for the licence. All that money goes to fund the beeb, I think.)

(Dr Who and other bbc things don't tend to appear on youtube. At least not quickly.)


Glad your lecturer (? Professer? Teacher? XD;;;) is being so nice!!


Today I havn't been able to move my left arm very much because of Massive Pain. This kinda sucks. And it's making me grumpy. ^^; But at least I go to Tokyo on Saturday!

A tv License just for owning a tv? You have to pay for something you've paid for to watch stuff that your paying for? >.> Talk about taxation. I think the US would break apart if people started making us pay about 400 usd a year for just having the tv alone. -_- I know I wouldnt be able to aford it.  Im sorry down.

In other news I have one project almost complete! That means only two more to go and two weeks to do it in! If I have one project a week that should be great! yayness!

Post by: Revolutionaren on March 08, 2007, 08:26:39 PM
We only pay a licence because the BBC don't have adverts in between programs, whereas the other mainstream channels do.

What made my day:
I got my AS resits and General Studies results today.
I got a B in General Studies.
My redo of my pyschology went from a D... to a D :/
My biology resit went from E to a D
And my RS resit went from a D to a B! Hurrah!

Thanks Revolutionaire! That makes more sense to me now. Not having adverts would be a large bonus, and I'd probably would pay for that.  Who said I didnt learn something new every day?

___

I've been published! Now you may be thinking poetry, fiction or so but actually its a little more mundane than that. Being Published as a ceramicist means that I have my work printed out in a catalogue of invited ceramic artists. Though it happens to be old work of a female nude torso. >.> The stuff Im doing right now happens to be... flowers, organic life, and jelly fish. But hey Im published!!!!! It adds another notch in my resume! yayness.

Well done on the AS resits, Revolutionnaire!!! Especially the RS  ^^ Good luck for the A2s!

And that is COOL on the being published, Ragyn! (And just being a ceramicist. that... sounds awesome, really. XD Especially with starfish...)



I get pissed with the tv licence largely because it only funds the beeb - the bbc have, what, 15 channels at most out of several hundred channels avaliable on sky/cable/whatever? And are 2 out of 5 avaliable on terrestial-only sets. But you HAVE to pay, even if you never watch the bbc.

All the other channels have ads four times in an hour. the Beeb only has five minutes advertising its own shows between shows, doesn't break for them... but it's not that much better, really - or I don't find it to be - and if you never watch any of their channels, you get no benifit beside NO MONEY. >.< If you don't have one, you get fined large amounts - they send people round to check, they have signal-detecting-vans (or they did.) and at university, in halls? They send someone around every six months or so who checks your room for a tv. I've had them look in my wardrobe, my cupboards, beind my door to see if I'd shoved it out of sight, and inspect my laptop for a tv adapter.

...

.../rant. Sorry. ^^;;; My great Uncle used to drive a detector van about, so the family used to argue randomly abut it (in a friendly manner) quite a lot, but I've really never forgiven them since their inspecter managed to smash my favourite mug inspecting my uni room. >.>   I loved that mug!

This would be my what made my day for yesterday, but it was SO BRILLIANT and VERY RAYEARTH and I HAD TO SHARE, XDDDDDDD

First off, I WENT TO TOKYO TOWER.

...and wandered about it SQUEAKING a lot. XDDDD But I wasn't taken to Cephiro. TT_TT

...I DID, however, spot Certain Buildings from the observation deck - the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (X, anyone? XD) which I'd seen much closer the day before... and THE BUILDING. THAT ASCOT DROPS ON CLEF. IN THE OVA.

XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

(and, yes, I bought some of the chick shaped okashi. haven't tried them yet, though. XD)

then we went to Odaiba - my friend and I worked out that the quickest way to get there would be to use the Yurikamome line. And I spent about five minutes wondering why that sounded so familiar, before my brain kicked in and went FUU. RAYEARTH OVA. Automated train line!!! ...and it was. XD (It was also very cool.)

...and not only did Odaiba turn out to be where the Clef-crushing-building is, but also the place where Umi wakes Selece. (which makes sense, now I think about it. XD)

...and we went across the Rainbow Bridge. XDDD (X, again. XD)

All in all, it was a scarily Rayearth-based day of sightseeing, that one. XDDDDDDDDDD Much fun! (will picspam at some point!)

EVERYONE should get to have a day like that one! There should be a fund or something. "Get Rayearth fans to Tokyo to Fangirl all day, and increase the happiness in the world!!!"

...only without the getting back to the hostel in the evening and realising an hour later that you are running a fairly high tempetature. ^^;;; (payment for the glee?)

I am now officially ILL, I think, (it's hard to be unbiased! and I can't ask anyone else because they'll fuss. ^^;) but I don't care! Because I can sleep the next few days without worries, and I am still so high that being ill cannot make me down. *amused at self*

Also, I have trapped Mils into Who, hehe, and watching the things my brain does when ill is always funny. XD

(My logic is almost never understood by anyone but me - and J-chan, usually - anyway. When ill? Even I don't know how I get from a to k. XDD)

Down, that building has something to do with Fuji Film, but I cannot think of it right off.


Made my day today.... Well, I finally finished Doctor Who.

I watched Army of Ghosts before I left for my job. So I was on edge for seven hours wanting to know what happened next. I am now physically ill with grief for the characters. I suppose it is empathy of sorts. I know that feeling, but not so completely.  And he never got a chance to tell her that he loves her.

On the bright side, I also read I Am a Dalek today. That made me giggle a few times. Definitely the bit about the Dalek getting a girlfriend, because they were all starting to wonder.

But honestly, I fear what my reaction will be to the end of Pirates 3 if I am so saddened by a series I only started a week and half ago.

I was kinda numb the first time I watched the ending, a family friend had just died, I was home for the funeral, and watching it leaning against my Mum. ^^; The second time, it made me cry again, though. And that was all it.

Just to continue on with this silly kick. 

I am now the proud owner of the Doctor Who soundtrack.  My gran was out this evening, so I blasted the two vocal songs on the main stereo system. Mind you my grandfather once sold electronics, so it is old, but works brilliantly.  Nice large loud speakers that live behind the side tables.  my dog was not happy with me for it

After I went through my psychological evaluation of myself, I feel better.  I know why it hurt so much that I was still crying off an on today.  It wasn't just the episode, it ripped at an old wound I have pushed back so deep as to have nearly forgotten it. 

Oh! How I ended up purchasing the soundtrack... I have one of those Border's Books member's card things. (Borders being a large book shop chain here in the US) I recieved a nice coupon today for some percentage off one item.  Me having a lack os self control, decided I would go by the second box set.  I found it, but decided to wander a bit before asking someone to open the glass case for me.  I walked by the soundtrack section to find the Doctor Who sound track sitting out of place in full view as if waiting for me. The clerk at the till was amusing.  I set my items on the counter and he states 'Ah! The good Doctor.'

I have been so giddy since.   I just needed to spend money to feel better. ^.~

It doesn't feel like St Patrick's Day. Normally, the nearby city (second biggest in England) gets really busy and the traffic is awful, because they close off roads to allow drunks to roam about. However, I was there today (whilst hungover X__x) and it was just as normal.

fine bone china is actually made with bone in it.

...cool.

XD

Bone china is actually a type of porcelian. Real procelian is expensive because of the contents used to make it (rare materials/minerals), however most porcelian used to make things today is actually a gray porcelian which is completely CHEAP to make but they still sale it as the 'real deal'- i.e. the stuff that costs a leg and a arm. Just a little note for you all. (I used to throw with only porc on the wheel now I handbuild sculptural forms/with some throwing).

my class let out early today! woot.

Ragyn~ hee, thanks for the info. ^^ *fascinated*



Um. It's nearly 5am, and I'm not ready yet, and I havn't slept, at all, and I've got to get in a taxi at 7am to go to the airport to meet cousin's plane.

...


heh. Guess I'm going to be matching her in terms of sleep deprevation... XD;;; (Or being worse, if she managed to sleep on the plane...)
Title: Re: What made your day today?
Post by: Sidherequiem on March 22, 2007, 02:23:35 PM
Some recipes for porc do include bone ash. Its a really really really white ash.
We also use stuff like borax and other semi and highly poisonus matter in glazes/clay bodies. Although interestingly enough once they are combined with the other minerals/matter and reach a certain temperture during firing they fuse together and become non-toxic. This is not a case, though, for glazes which contain lead. Lead is still sometimes used in glazes thats why you see "this item is not fit for food items" or some such sticker on some store bought pottery.

What made my day yesterday would be the chance to SLEEP, PROPERLY, for the first time in two weeks. XD; the Visiting Cousin was trying to fit in as much sight-seeing as possible, so we were getting to sleep about 1am and getting up at 8 for the first few days, and progressivly slept less and less until I got an hour on the last night...

I slept for FOURTEEN HOURS STRAIGHT yesterday. XDDD

and also new tsubasa chapter. *flails* the last two chapters? have had me swearing loudly in public as I read them. ^^; heh.

what made today: there are Man from U.N.C.L.E. episodes avaliable on aol videos to download for free, yay!

I watched about 7 episodes in between classes and I have no idea how I am gonna finish my Spanish lit. term paper because I am in full Rayearth mode now (and probably for the rest of the week... or month!).

Go you.  I need to force myself to write Rayearth again.

I get the house to myself for the next four days.  It will be brilliant.  Guess what I will be watching on the Big Screen HD TV.  *laughs* 

Actually I should do MKR anime research.  I need to make myself fall back into the fandom, but I doubt that will happen until after 23 June. As the fandom that has stolen my heart has killed off my Rayearth plot bunnies.  And is making me write for it instead. Psuedo baby!fics are a fun write, though. I have 10 comments on one in a short day's time.

Heh, just rereading the manga will get me back, everytime. *sigh* so pretty~

Um. Though. My brain has been eaten by the heian era and broke, and so now I have thought processes that look like THIS:

Me: I WANT TO WRITE!
Brain: Well, I guess we could poke at Protecting You a bit... though Clef isn't actually speaking to you, after you kept singing 'good morning little school girl' at him yesterday
Me:THAT HAD TO BE DONE!
Brain: *ignoring interjection* and also, I'm trying to memorise the entire Fujiwara clan over here. Keeping track of what goes where in that thing and who is an assassin? SO not going to happen tonight.
Me: ...but! ;_;
Brain:... ... ... though. You could always start the epic epic Zazu/Ascot fic of genius!
Me: ...
...
...
Clef hide me!
Clef: *ignores plight*

Which may be amusing, but, uh, isn't getting anything DONE. Oh dear. ^^;   

'Good morning little schoolgirl' is, btw, hilarious. XD

Its next sat! there will be a live web feed but Im not sure where. some where on wku.edu 's pages. >.> 

But Im a little worried about what Im going to do after graduating as its hard to find a job in kentucky that pays well with a Design degree... and especially not a Ceramic degree. I may have to just work at some ho hum place for awhile... like amazon or something. ...gulp.

I am now working three jobs this summer.  My main one has turned full time for the rest of the month. 40hr a week.  That will make a nice addition to my bank account.  I also gained another easy gig that only involves me waking up early early MWFs 6-8am next door helping my neighbor's mother get ready to go to her daycare.  I can stand making breakfast and listening to stories about fruit cakes.

First and foremost.  It is Saturday, and I am sure a few of you know what I am currently downloading at the moment.  God Bless High Speed internet and the Tennant_Love community.

Also, I finally went shopping for some new summer clothes.  It is hot and as I am out on the playground for about four hours of the day, I need some other clothes. Jeans are too hot.  Due to my annoyingly shaped figure.  I have taken to wearing skirts, as shorts are silly looking on me right now.

On said shopping spree, I ventured to Old Navy and there was a dungaree dress hanging off center on a rack to where is sort of stuck out amongst some jeans.  I picked it up and tried it with some other things.  It fitted perfectly.  *laughs* Not I am sitting here in it.  Very comfortable. ^.^

Actually this is what made my day on Thursday.   But whose counting?   I haven't been on and it has been my birthday.  I am the dictator/ pirate king

PIRATES!!!  The film was fantastic!  I loved it.  Went to the showing in costume with my friend who went as Norrington.  That was fun. I couldn't get my accent right.  I usually can do a nearly flawless Cpt. Jack Sparrow, but as I have been out of practice and watching other things that involve a different type of ship, I found my accent turned to a weird muddle of 9/10/Rose/Cpt. Jack Sparrow, which kept making me giggle.

I love the fact that it freaks people out to find that I am girl when I am dressed up in that costume.  I suppose the idea that a girl would dress as a male pirate is strange?  I would love to make the costume Elizabeth wears on Sao Feng's ship.  It is beautiful.

I was also struck with a silly drabble idea when it comes to someone being voted "pirate king".

Now for today:

I went out to lunch with my gran, two of my friends, and a friend's mum. It was lovely.  One of the girfts was in a bucket and covered in socks as the wrapping, and the other which was wrapped normally in lovely paper, contained a Jolly Roger, among other things.  That just made me giggle, an dI want to hang it out side, but I don't know what the neighbors would think.

I missed Splash Day.  All because a co-worker had a dentist appointment this morning. So I had to work in a different room this morning instead of helping in the older room. So I wore my swim suit this moring for nothing.

We were going to be taking the pre-schoolers out for water play.  But I missed it.  *is so disppointed* I am such a little kid at heart. That would havew been brilliant.  The play yard is wet and muddy now, but I know the damp children I saw earlier had fun.

I suppose making a fuss over that is better than the other thing that was frustrating me today. I really need to get back to doing sport or something. I am too seditary for my own good. I idiotically stepped on a scale this moring and was not happy with that I saw.  I've gained 10lb since the last time I weight myself. Good God. *groan*

So yeah, Mils is not happy with her day so far.

...my own school does not accept letters of rec from its own education professors for graduate programs...so now I have to go bother another professor.

...And the European college system hurts my head.  What on earth are modules and how do they function?  At least I have a whole week to review things...

From my understanding of modules, modules are like different topics. And in the course I'll be taking, there are two core modules which I must take and then, I can choose which other modules I want to do.
Did that help at all?

Knowing that my AX plans are turning out just fine.

But also my performance review was yesterday.  At Starbucks (and probably a bunch of other places) you get rated on a scale of 1 to 3 (which is also the percentage of your raise).  A 1 is Needs Improvement, a 2 is Meets Expectations and a 3 is Exceeds Expectations.  It's possible to get right in the middle, so they do a lot of rounding.  Basically 1-1.59 is a 1, a 1.6-2.59 is a 2 and 2.6-3 is obviously a 3.  Have I lost anyone yet?

Anyways, my first review was like a 1.9 or a 1.95, so I got a 2.  I was told to improve and if I got a 3 on my next review, they'd look at me for a promotion to Shift Supervisor.  That was back in January.  Fast-forwarding to yesterday.  I went in, went over my review with my boss and everything went fine.  After some calculations, it was determined that I got a 2.61 this time, which rounds up to a 3, and within the next 2 months, I'll get my promotion.

So yeah, that's what's made my day.

*should be able to help on this, actually BEING in a british university* *has not got the brainpower to do so. ^^;;;* Meh. Most Universities seem to have their own slightly wierd system, so they should provide you with all the information you need at some point. ^^;;; Course Modules = a-course-of-learning-about-a-specific-topic, ie a series of lectures and seminars for a term on, say, Richard II would be a Course Module. ...I think. ^^;;;

It'd be easier to call them just courses, but that's what we call our degree programs. XD;;; (yay for overused words. >.>)

Last night I had a very long, AWESOME talk with my boyfriend on msn messenger. I've missed him a lot since I came to visit my parents, and I won't get to see him for another 47 days, so it really was great to just be able to laugh and have fun with him like we do when we're sitting next to each other. We even played Wheel of Fortune (and he absolutely anihilated me, haha)! I can't wait to go back to the US in August and see him, we're having our 2nd year anniversary and it's going to be SCHWEEEEEEEET!

XDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXD

Ohh, and on top of all that, while Chris and I talked my ex, Diego, got online too and for some reason his display name was "I like d*ck" (probably the product of an angry girl knowing his password), so I asked him "really?", got him really embarrassed, and then told him I had to go to bed to diss him and dedicate all of my attention to Chris. As I see it, i't not vengeance; it's just justice. And i LOVVVVVVE IT!

I cannot wait to see it.  Hopefully, Measi has up the MP4 of it before I leave for DC.  I really want to watch it before I go.  I am dying to know what happens.

As for last week's, OH MY GOD!!  There was a point to HN and FoB, though I still am not too fond of them.  I think my favorite episode this time round is "Blink".

After the fun hastle of everything involved in getting the episode.  I have finally watched it and cannot wait to see the next one.  I'll see if Laura is okay with me leaving this stuff on her computer until I can download it sat, convert it and upload it to my ipod, for travel.

Hopefully it won't take as long as it did for this one.  I cannot wait to see how this thing pans out!!!  OMG!!  The archenemy under his nose all along.  That is brilliant.  Why does it have to be Tuesday?



But staying on Penn. Ave. is amusing.  Every few hours or more a motorcade comes by.  Sirens blaring, the works.  There go the limos with the flags again.... with the full crew. Emergency, Police, everything.

x2!! (mind you, I was watching the finale on my little iPod video screen, in the middle of the airport, and nearly cried.)

But seriously, six months is nearly too long a wait.   

Random thought One: But I wonder if we will see Nine again. Given that it was the Titantic at the end, and the whole thing with Nine having been on it when it crashed. 

Random thought Two: female timelord?

It is the 4th.  No work, no class, just family and food.  Woot.  I got to sleep in. 8:30!!!

From what I've heard, Martha will be returning half-way into series four, she'll also appear in three episodes of Torchwood.
There'll be another companion who'll be in all of series four.

Oh, and Kylie Minogue will be in the Titanic episode.
And JK Rowling might be writing an episode aswell.

What's really bad, is that the bit about Kylie Minogue actually made the news...

but at least there was new tsubasa to console me. (a more intresting chapter than the last few, imo, as well. xD) and it's not as insanly hot as it was before...

Went to London yesterday.
Got there fine and wandered around, watched some Shakespeare and it was all going well.
Until, we were returning back to the Train station, when it said that all trains were cancelled. A train somewhere had ran over (and thus killed) some one.
So then, we were stranded in London. Which is roughly 200 miles away from where I live.
So, we waited around for a few hours and eventually caught a train, but it wasn't our train so it didn't go all the way to Manchester (where I live ...ish), so we had to get off at some random station and then get another train to Manchester.
We eventually got to Manchester at Midnight (meant to have been there at 10), and I had missed my last bus home, but luckily, I managed to get a lift home.

As to what made my day, on the second train home, under the table we were sat at, we found two porn magazines. Oh joy of sweet joys. (Ok, so it didn't make my actual day, it was just amusing)

It was a generally fun day out though.

heh.

I've been running on 6-4hours sleep a night for about three weeks, now, and thursday night I slept not at all. I do best on 9 a night. Last night? SIXTEEN HOURS STRAIGHT.  (also, I went to bed at 6pm. ^^;;;;;; )

...and I'm still tired!

XD;;;;;;;;;

now I have to pack up my room, and organise pretty much everything before my family gets here on the 26th. ...I also don't get Harry Potter 7 until then, so I'll probably be hiding from the net and the rampant spoilers until they cart it over. ^^;;;

Dude! DONE!

Well, apart from a questionairre that I'm meant to be handing out to people to use when I'm back in england. ^^; (I have...4 replies! ...I probably need 20+, but still!)

*yawns* sheesh.

right. will be back in england on the 13th... will probably be making it back into writing fic about the 18th august? I SHOULD have stuff more sorted by then... though the summer prep for uni will be trying to kill me. XD

I should be finished tomorrow evening.  I just got to where a word was said. Around page 445 State-side.

I went to a midnight release party last night and was so crossfandoming it.  I was dressed in my Witch Hunter robin costume and I had my wand, sonic screwdriver andpsychic paper on me. ^.~  You never know.  Screwdriver amused the 12-year-old I was chatting to for a bit.  She naturally looks like Ginny but was dressed as Hermione (frizzy hair).  Confusing to many people.

Heres what made my day today: Getting my hands on the second season (tenth doctor). Watching ALL of it, and deciding that yeah, I do like ninth doctor better than tenth (currently running arguments with friends standing at deadlock. Her tenth and my fav ninth. I will win the battle! haha! ahem...).

Heres what didnt make my day: No Rose! omg, I cried the snot right out of me. (And thats putting it lightly!) Horrible horrible horrible. Im stilling scrambling up the walls. Also found out that my brakes are shot on my car and the rotary? is basically gone. My dad was rather suprized I was still able to come to a stop while driving home from work.

What made my day, yesterday:
I went to the Doctor Who: Up Close Exhibition

Omg, it was insane. I couldn't believe how close to was to an actual Dalek and K-9. K-9 is alot bigger than I expected, regardless, I then took MySpace-esque photos with K-9 xDDD
It was good
The merchandise in the shop was far too expensive though, so I bought some 50p badges xD

Currently using the comp at the hotel I am staying at. Have been at it for a while.? I may have now discovered that they are not refunding me the extra money paided for my tuition, save the first $235.? My books cost me $400 out of pocket.?

Unfortunately, or rather fortunately... either way you look at it, I no longer have cable. Decided that it wasnt something I really did a lot of, watch tv. So we got rid of it since no one really watches anything. However I think I've found season three sooo Im eagerly awaiting it to finish. yay.

designing my first ever sweater to knit. Im hoping to have the words Bad Wolf (maybe in welsh?) underneath a wolf head. Not sure if the wolf head would be over doing it. Either that or I was going to try and make a dalek outline in white on a black bg. hum... so much. I will definately post pictures of it when I get done. Hopefully it wont turn out horrible considering this will be my first sweater ... ever.

What made my day = getting on here again and reading everything! XDDD

Revolutionairre - well done on uni! *waves enthusiastically* 

and, heee, more Who converts. >D More, a Who fan who knits, too! Anyone else on here knit? (Not that I am any good at it... and I like bobbin lace making best, but that's not particularly portable. ^^;)

Plus, it was the birthday of my best friend so I took her to London to see the Lord of the Rings musical, which was fun. XD (the plot was horrendously squidged to fit it in, of course, but twas much fun. XDDD)

My cat peed! Seriously this made me so happy. It wasnt tinged with blood or anything. My brother thought it was pretty funny me bending down trying to lift his long fluffy tail as he did his buisness and checking to see if he really was peeing. And it wasnt just a squirt it was a full pee. Yay!

Chris and I have officially been dating for 2 years!!! We went out wednesday and re-created our first date, it was awesome: went out to dinner, stopped by walmart on the way back and looked around for tooth medicine for 5 minutes and then gave up (this actually happened on our first date, I had just had tooth surgery and it was bothering me, lol), came home and watched monty python and the holy grail... ♥♥♥♥♥  ;D 

Ohhh, and my sister came to see me today, I got her a go-phone and she got sooo excited about it! it was fun just hearing her ask everyone "is this for real? seriously?" lol. She had to leave early though, I kinda wish she could've stayed till tomorrow, we could've watched a lot of Aqua Teen Hunger Force...

And last, but not least, I am trying to learn to play the guitar again and I have kept at it for a whole week, ladies and gentlemen, A WHOLE WEEK! Hopefully this time I will keep practicing and finally learn something instead of just getting upset because I can't play like a pro after the first 5 minutes and just getting upset and not playing again for like another 2 years. At least I can read music now, I guess this will make a little difference. But yeah, I'm excited about maybe becoming better at this :)

... and did I hear the word "knitting" around the forum? lol, I need to start doing that again, last winter I was all about learning to do it just so I could make me an awesome poncho for when i just wanna be all cozy at home and this is the time when I still haven't finished making my practice scarf, lol. Good luck to me I guess  :P

Stage make-up class is sooo rocking my socks right now. today my professor showed the class various techniques and by the end of it her face was a mixture of old lady on the forehead, thin nose on one side and wide on the other, one big eye and one tiny eye, a swollen left cheek, and some huge, red lips like Ursula's from the Little Mermaid (gosh, i love Denise!). And now I got two 2-d make-up projects for the weekend, one has to be a character from a play who is about my age (I think I'll do the lady of the lake from Spamalot) and the other has to be an old person... me = soooooo excited!!!  :D

I am moving into my University accommodatiom tomorrow. I am ver excited. But alas, I have no internet connection, so I may be absent. For a long while. There are rumours we're getting wi-fi sometime soon, but I dunno.

And also, to keep in with the Doctor Who theme going on:
The Sarah Jane Adventures starts a week on Monday. I don't care if it's aimed at kids, Elisabeth Sladen is hot, and I jusy hope I won't have any classes/lectures/tutorials/seminars that prevent watching it. Failing that, I'll have the parents record it for me.

(I can't believe Torchwood has only started airing in America. Season 2 starts over here in January. Yay!)

Because BBC America hates us.  Series 2 of Doctor Who only just started when Torchwood did.   Thankfully Doctor Who was picked up by SciFi channel, so 2 and 3 have already aired, but I have the DVDs of 1 & 2 and downloaded 3, so I saw it before it aired state side.

Hello :D! I'm on some random wi-fi right now.

Anyway, I watched The Sarah Jane Adventures today. I won't say too much. But I liked it :D There were some really cute moments in, I enjoyed that.
Yeah, I watched it on my pocket TV that only gets a vaguely decent BBC One. And it has the tiniest little screen ever. Never mind. It's better than nothing.

I am also enjoying Uni. :D I have my first lecture on Wednesday. It's very excitng.

The only bad things is the lack of internet and my housemates bad taste in music.

I've had tocome home for the week from uni... I chemically burnt my feet on Sunday (don't ask). It's ok now, I mean, I can now walk again and the pain and swelling has gone on one foot. I should be back at uni soon and be internetless again. Hooray.

There will be an Alethiometer toy and possibly a really nice replica!!  It is supposed to be released this month or next.  I cannot wait for the film in December.  (see: The Golden Compass/The Northern Lights -book 1 of His Dark Materials trilogy)

I discovered I had one more audio book downloaded than I thought, and then the plot bunnies ate my brain... so I have s short, but multi-chaptered post doomsday, crack, dragons in Oklahoma, DW fic.   Save me.

But I sadly can't go on DNT...

Another thing that didn't necessarily make my day, more like wierded me out... ANOTHER random person told me I have pretty eyes (see signature)


Is ANYONE having the problem on fanfiction/ ffn mobile that says 403 Forbidden for the MKR fic page? ;_;

I spent half the morning laughing because I found Umi/Clef porn (http://psynos.net/rayearth3/images/File0358.JPG) in one of my files on the server and have NO CLUE who drew it.  I completely forgot that it was there. Not the thing you expect to find when browsing your old fanart folder.

*snickers at image, makes no comment.*

(it isn't mine, though, I remember exactly what ...interesting images I've tried drawing in the past. XDD)

I SLEPT ELEVEN HOURS LAST NIGHT.

Admittedly I seem to have been having a dream about a serial murdered this morning and didn't get to the end of it (I KNOW my protagonist was going to end up trapped and taking him out in a ~Surprise Twist~ because it was a ~horror movie~ shaped plot but I think there were about three more of the party who were going to die first?) which was less restful than I've have liked, but SLEEEEEEEEP. And now IT'S THE WEEKEND FOR ME~

(FOUR DAYS this weekend! ...This is because next week I don't GET a weekend and will be a complete zombie by the time I hit November, but! I am appreciating this while it's here. ^^)

also mmmmmmm rice from the ricecooker for lunch. (I've been craving real sticky rice for two weeks but I couldn't find either a) Dad's ricecooker (which is a UK one) or b) the transformer to go with mine (which is Japanese and would go BOOM if I just plugged it into the mains ^^; )

.............also the last post in over half the forums on the boards was mine, hehe, whoops. (stupid timezones...)

So, which did you find? I would have given up and made the rice in a pot, or are you not that skilled?  (has grandmother's Japanese rice pot still).

Normal rice? I'm fine. Sticky rice? I FORGET IT AND IT BUUUUUUUURNS. >.> *short attention span* I'm not so good with food I actually have to stir or so when it's cooking. Takes effort.... Dad pointed out where his lives, and then put too much rice in when we were arguing over water levels, so we ALL had rice for lunch. XD

The transformer I have ALSO now found - which is good, I need it for my kotatsu! (not that I have room to get the kotatsu out, woe!) - but it's, uh, lodged underneath a trunk of books, half a train set, and three duvets in the loft. (I went looking for a second duvet for when the temperature drops again, and THERE IT WAS. ^^;)

Chat was aaaaaawesome. XD

And now I am sat re-drawing the map of the UCA for my fic, which I've been meaning to do for an age, because my old version is spoilery as anything and also I've moved a half-dozen lands. XD Of course, I can't stop laughing, because being naff at titles/names I nicked most of them from a Bernard Cornwell book - a lot are old-english names for places in the uk - and this means that I have the Isle of Wright higher than London... And somehow the Wash is between London and the Thames... (actually, it's rather like the USA. XD)

(This had to be done today because I'm trying to sense-check my politics for geography. All I can say is, I am GLAD I am not Schwarzem or whoever the rep from Cynuit is, heh. Overlapping spheres of influence~)

I'm currently chatting a man from Russia that reminds me so much of Clef. At least fandom Clef. (I'm using a chat program that randomly selects someone for you to talk to.)

He is multilingual (original language Russian, fluent in English, knows some Japanese, and many other languages) He actually studies linguistics.

He paused in the middle of our chat to go get a cup of tea XDD

He has been asking me about the books I read and the languages I know.

(I'm going to keep prodding him to see what else is similar)

Last week I got promoted to CSM which means I am finally off the returns register after almost two years.  The downside is that I'm the closing CSM which means I always close starting now until forever.  Luckily we close at 8:00pm.  Today is the first time in at least six months that I work 4:00-close.  Which is awesome.  A four-hour shift?  I will take it!  All I really have to do is get codes for my cashiers and clean up the floral department.

The best part is that I still get up at nine but I've got a few hours to just relax and bum around the house.  This is perfect.

........MERLIN!

*flails about like a maniac* *falls onto sofa* *cackles*

MERLIN!

(I- I don't HAVE many new shows I get so hooked to that I have to actually watch them week by week! Currently I have two: Merlin and Lewis. ....Next season of Lewis is a) aimed to be the last therefore I am worried about his SURVIVAL and b) not on until next april or something. BUT MERLIN IS AWESOME AND RIDICULOUS AND I LOVE IT AND AM TERRIFIED AT THE SAME TIME BECAUSE THIS IS ARTHURIAN LEGEND, WHICH COMES WITH THE ENDING BUILT IN? BUT I LOVE IT they play with all the arthurian tropes and medieval things which make my heart SING while deliberately playing with the historical nature of it enough that my medievalist mind can let go of all the things which AREN'T right because THEY AREN'T MEANT TO BE)

(........apart from the bit where they burn magic users. WITCHES WERE HANGED, NOT BURNT. BURNING IS FOR HERETICS!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(and yes last week I screamed that at the beginning of the episode so loudly that my mother nearly banned me from the room ^^;;;;;;;;;;)

IN CONCLUSION?

MERLIN!

Because of your giddiness over Merlin, I've started watching, Down.   I'm about 6 episodes in?  Maybe more. I love it. 

I had a hallowe'en party with a group of friends. We had a great time.

I would have said that getting my Scenario book made my day, but the postal worker didn't ring the bell, and just dropped off the slip I have to take to the post office on Monday to pick my parcel up.  Bleh.   I was in my towel after a shower, and the alarm was on or I might have jogged after her to get it.

And I am not sure I will be THAT into it to read/write it, which is when I tend to wander.  But my first true OTP is Umi/Clef.  You know if I did wander, I would always be back.

Today my day was made by a twenty-minute hooping session (which is really good for me; I've been having thyroid issues the past seven months that have caused my energy levels to crash, but I've been getting better, so twenty minutes of exercise is like, amazing right now) during which I finally fixed the weird little thing I was doing wrong in my left-handed rising sun behind-the-back pass. Aw yeah. Also worked on single-hoop weaves with my left hand for the first time and it wasn't a complete disaster (I'm right-handed, so doing tricks and isolations with my left hand involves a much steeper learning curve). Yay!

A coworker asked if I've lost weight!

(I said, "I hope so.")

I haven't seen her in a week or so, and we don't talk too often.  To someone who sees me regularly, you'd never notice. :P

I've been trying to lose some, as after I got married three years ago, between the pill and inactivity I put on like 25 pounds and have been at the heaviest I've ever been.  Not enough to be called fat, but I consider myself a bit chubby.  And I miss my old body and my old clothes.  Unfortunately exercising hasn't been working out for me -- since the spring, if I try to work out even lightly it brings on abdominal pain (that I really should have looked at because it might be a hernia or ulcer, but it goes away after a few weeks and I know if I go in when it's not flaring up they won't find anything because UGH THAT ALWAYS HAPPENS) so I'm just trying to watch what I eat.  Better overall, and less, especially at night.

And it seems to be paying off.  I can get my belt loop one or two notches tighter than the beginning of the year and apparently at least one person noticed it in my face.  My face is where I want to lose it the most. ;__;

Anyway, it made my day.  Thanks for letting me ramble on.

Story of my life.  Hoping the activity required of the new job will help me shake mine back off.  None of my old costumes fit, which makes me so sad.  My goal is to tone up enough that I feel comfortable attempting a Tatra costume for halloween next year.  We'll see what happens

What made my day today?   A cup of tea and a sit down.  I am not sure how much of this job I am going to be able to take.  We are only into week two....

I used to be pretty obsessed with running until I started getting sharp abdominal pains (wasn't breathing properly/got very out of shape after I quit cross country). But have you tried any form of yoga? I did hot yoga and ashtanga over the summer (min of 5 times a week, 1-1.5hr sessions) and lost around 15lbs. The process is relatively slower than aerobic exercises, if compared by calories burned per hour, but it's so much more relaxing and easier to commit to. ALSO, works out your full body so you get that nice toned look.

You should definitely try it out! (and maybe get the abdominal pain checked out just in case)

MAKING IT made my day.   I keep giggling at the silliness.   Considering all the crap Down and I keep discussing on Gchat.  I thought we needed a board like that in the forum.   I'm sure others would be just as amused by the idea of Clef as a sub and so forth....

I love that it made Down change her user pic, even though I thought the posts with little!Clef looking decidedly unimpressed was hilarious....

I've lost half a stone!!  This is the first time I've been under 200 pounds in over a year!  I do think it has to do with the fact I don't sit still all day anymore I would I would love to lose the same amount over the course of the next month or so.

(yes, I still have bits of my school uniform at 26. ...yes, I a) wore a boy's shirt fairly frequently to school and b) I still wear it to work on occasion.

I also got two noodle bowls and reusable chopsticks. My mom knows me too well.

My mom told me that there's something still on the way in the mail from me and I'm pretty sure I know what it is. It's a necklace, but it's from a character in Degrassi <3 More novelty than anything but I love it.

I'm happy to have a new one since my old one had an accident with the bathtub and.... heh. The back camera doesn't work.

Also, I'm almost done with my online Spanish course which means more time for other things! It also means I don't feel guilty when I'm writing because I COULD be being productive.

Next on the list of things to get:
1 Terrabyte of storage on an external hard drive. My computer is SO near its limit.
An External keyboard to typety type type. the P and some other key on my laptop keyboard stick. (Anyone know solutions to that?)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I spent the day with my brother and his girlfriend, raiding the shops in the city with our christmas vouchers/monies. ........There may be books. XD Also another pair of AWESOME boots - technically these were part of my christmas present from my parents, they gave me a check so I could go buy them and get the right size. XDD

(Tomorrow will be chaos, it's my grandmother's 80th birthday and we're catering and entertaining more than 50 people for it (which is admittedly lower than the first estimates!) so if you never see me again, either the party ate me, or the internet has been stolen in punishment for my cracking half way through and hijacking the sound system to play kpop............ ^^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; But I plan to wear my AWESOME BOOTS because purple biker-style doc martens are party wear, right? ......okay I might just wear them for the tidying up XD)

This has been on tumblr, but, well, it's half way between making my week and bewildering me to the point of not knowing what a week IS, so - I figure it's worthy of mention here anyway, but my boss is suggesting that I take on the role of one of the other people in our team for six months. I'm having to apply and all, it might not even go through, but if it does it would be full time and four grades higher than my current role. (ie pay almost twice as much. That would be a nice bonus!) I'm not even expecting to get it, but that my boss and dept head think I could do that........ it's thrown me, somewhat. I'm not even officially permanent until next week! (...which they had forgotten XD)

Also now I have to do a job application and I thought I was done with them, and in the off chance I get it I might need to get another professional qualification which, uh, that would be interesting heh, and - I AM FLATTENED BY THIS but hey MY BOSS ISN'T FAKING HE THINKS I'M AN ASSET, I FEEL HAPPY :D

............."All shall love me and despair!" is a perfectly valid personal statement, right? Um. Oh dear........

I got a violin!!   I?ve been wanting one again lately.  It?s been years since I played.  I got a new fancy tuner that tells me what notes I am playing, so I have been able to put the training tape on, so I can find the right notes when prarctising.  I?m terribly excited.   

Home alone tomorrow, so I should be able to spend a good hour or more playing.  I printed out some LOTR and Hobbit music someone arranged for Violin, because It?s more fun to practise something randomly awesome.

YOU CAN DO NO MORE.)

(NO ONE IS HAND-HOLDING ME I AM JUST MEANT TO GET ON WITH IT. THIS IS RATHER MORE TRUST THAN I THINK I REALLY NEEDED STRAIGHT AWAY WHEN I CAN'T ACTUALLY REMEMBER EVERYTHING I HAVE TO DO. AAAAAAH)

........but I SURVIVED. I SURVIVED! And now I am going to give in to the unresponsiveness of the internet and go away and probably to bed. It's nearly half nine! This is later than I thought I was going to manage to be awake tonight!

YAY FOR SWIMMING and hopefully good endorphin-tired mix? ^^

My first Graze.com (http://graze.com) box came today!!!

Basically for $5 a box, they send you four delicious healthy snacks. (I get mine once per week, but you can get it less often too!) You can go through the site and rate ones you don't want, or definitely want, or you'll try.
It is currently invite-only and I've given away the ones I had ALREADY. But keep a head's up because they hope to be bigger soon. Or ask around if any friends have codes left. (check some related tags on Tumblr, lots of folks give out their codes there!)

ALSO we just signed the lease for our townhouse that we'll move into in July!  SO EXCITED.  It's been a... process, because (as two of C's coworkers that live there have told us) the leasing folks are kind of incompetent.  But it's signed and he'll take it over tomorrow with questions and AaAAaaaaa

My garage door is possessed.  It won?t open when I want it to, and opens when I don?t want it to.  I had to break into the back window of the garage so the repair guy and I could look at it.  Guess who gets a new garage door opener?   *groan*  Always something.  Oh well...  I think I might just take the day off work, since I already called in, and go run the errands I meant to run earlier. Like get this stash of cheques to the bank, since I keep failing at doing that.

I also got a Graze box today (though this is my third one). Nom nom nom. Blackcurrants are really, really tart.

Also, I managed to do a full 20 minutes of pilates tonight. (I like Blogilates - Cassey's high energy is just peppy enough to keep me going but not so peppy as to become grating. Plus the workouts are great.) Considering that a month ago I could barely do five minutes, this is a pretty big deal for me. Aw yeah.

New garage door opener installed today.  Whoo!  Happy day! I can park my car inside in safety (from hail). I was hopping to try swimming again today, but it doesn?t look like it is going to happen, as they will likely be done close to the time I have to go and the cats need food, and I need to run some errands.  Perhaps I can ride my bicycle for a bit this evening, as it is lovely outside.

And we move in JUUUUUNE and I get to finally get out of my parents' house and I can start doing auditions and ugughghghghghgh I'M SO EXCITED.

Two words: caffeine sleep.

I was up late last night because of course I was (later than usual because I'm off today whoo) but I had to get up at 6:30ish to make sure C. got up, since he has to do license bureau stuff this morning before work.  There's one energy drink that I like and that really works for me, and I had half the can right before I went to bed at like 3:45...  Woke up at 6:30 with almost no problems and now it's 8:00 and I'm wide awake with nothing to do!  Probably gonna crash around 11:00 this morning whoop but maybe I can get some writing done before then?  Gosh, I'm actually a bit hyper.

I've only done caffeine naps in the past.  Drink your caffeine of choice, nap for a half hour, and boom, wake up ready to go since it does the work after you fall asleep.  Best thing.  However trying a caffeine nap when I crash in a while is probably ill-advised...

Triple post alert! 

But I wanted to announce what has truly made my day today.  I made it through an entire day--first weekday in months--without any real pain.  I took no medication. I was practically pain free all day. It was glorious.  (short lived as my leg is trying make up with it with stabbing pain in my thigh, but who cares. It?s tomorrow now.)

Now back to your regularly scheduled fandom flailing.

This old cartoon (series of shorts) from the 1996 Tamagotchi line (http://froth.tumblr.com/post/49368995720/).  I keep watching it and it keeps making me grin.  There's a running anime in Japan for the current line, but the Tamas are kind of designed to be good cartoon characters instead of being good sprites in the game now, so they all look boring and the same. D:  This old cartoon is SO FREAKING CUTE THOUGH.  I can't get over Nyorotchi's voice!

My friend had extra copies of the original MKR manga (from a swap or something?) and sent them to me.  I insisted he let me pay for shipping but I'M REALLY EXCITED.  I can't read Japanese save for a few things here and there, but IT'S SO PRETTY and the covers feel so neat, they're dust jackets over the paperback cover and are slightly textured.  It has the Bonus Stage omake in the back and everything. 

I know it's not off-topic, but it made my day and I can't justify making a whole new thread about it XD

Recently: new job! Again. This is totally what I get for saying in chapter that the next one would be soon because my brain wasn't going to be eaten by a new job, isn't it. Ooooooops... But I like it better than the last three months so far so YAY.

I?M ALIVE!!

No, seriously. Mile wide tornados heading your way are a bit unnerving. Even when they veer south and miss you, you definitely need a stiff drink afterward.

Perhaps a few, before it?s all better again.

Damn Tornados. Why is the weather off by a month?  It?s late for tornados.

My friend had extra copies of the original MKR manga (from a swap or something?) and sent them to me.  I insisted he let me pay for shipping but I'M REALLY EXCITED.  I can't read Japanese save for a few things here and there, but IT'S SO PRETTY and the covers feel so neat, they're dust jackets over the paperback cover and are slightly textured.  It has the Bonus Stage omake in the back and everything. 

I know it's not off-topic, but it made my day and I can't justify making a whole new thread about it XD

Wow, they are exactly like the copies I have in Hong Kong when it first came out. I might have mentioned that I never bought the volumes when it was still popular around 1995-1996, but managed to track them down in a second hand dealer last year (sadly these dealers are closing down one by one due to the ridiculous property prices that push small individidual businesses out of business).

I don't have to work on Saturday!  That means I'll have a three day weekend since we're closed Sundays and I R/O'd Monday to play Animal Crossing New Leaf for my birthday.  My manager's over on hours this month (lots of resets and whatnot lately) so he's cutting wherever he can.  I almost didn't get cut since I'm a CSM and get codes for cashiers so the managers on duty don't have to (it makes their job easier) but in the end he decided it was worth it XD  (it's only a four-hour shift, so I'm not losing much on my paycheck and tbh the little vacation at such a perfect time is worth it to me)

I?m creating drama on Tumblr. It?s amusing me.

The argument is over the tornado scene in Man of Steel.  How inaccurate it is in so many ways. Apparently the person whose lower half of their city gets wiped out by and EF5 every decade doesn?t know shit. Even though EVERYONE around here says not to take shelter under an overpass.  Because it is even more dangerous.

But I think the worst part was how inaccurate the storm was.

Oh well.  The people telling me I am wrong is making me laugh.

If you haven't been keeping up with the Sega Saturn Magic Knight Rayearth thread, I intend to do a playthrough.  Well, I thought I was going to have to spend some money to buy a composite/component adapter and some component cables in order to hook my Saturn up to a capture card.  As it turns out, I can hook the composite cables up to the card and it captures the video and audio just fine.

I'll do a test recording in a few days to see how it turns out.  All that said, I'll probably need to decide if I want to do commentary or not.

So fingers crossed, however, I will miss my current workplace.

I should have made this post on 17 June, Tuesday, it was the day when I got in touch with a long lost friend.

I lost touch with my friend Elsie who I was very close to when I was at school, I last spoke to her in 2009. I had been through some very depressing times and did not get in touch with this friend but she did not contact me either.

I tried to find Elsie recently through email, her email went defunct, and I tried emailing her younger sister too, but got no response, I thought all hope was lost and was contemplating to mention this on facebook hoping there would be other school  friends who know her whereabouts.

 Then I find Elsie's mobile number in an old diary, I added this number to my contact and sent a whatsapp to this number to ask if the owner of this mobile number is Elsie ( there is no profile photo so I could not tell) and it she was still using this number and she was so pleased I found her again!

I might've forgotten that this thread existed...

Actually YESTERDAY, not today, I got a pony that I wanted to get when she came out 10 years ago, when I first started collecting, but I just missed getting her in stores.. then she was going for more than I was willing to pay for her.  Finally snagged her for $4.00!

Autumn Skye is the one in question, on the left.  I got Fair Weather, right, since she was also cheap from the same seller.  I never liked her before (I don't really like blue/purple together) but I keep seeing her around lately and she's grown on me, so!

as for good things today: the Moon Animate Make-up (http://moonanimate.tumblr.com/post/92377477335/enjoy-edit-missing-credits-chloe-buse) video finally posted!

basically they had over 200 animators all do a few seconds from an episode of Sailor Moon, using the dub since that'd be easier to animate to, and put it all together and made one full episode.  it's really a wild ride between the constant changing of really different styles and the trainwreck of a dub that DiC did.

I have a new iPod!!!   

My iPhone is dying, and I use the apps on it often enough.  Usually functional ones, so I get upset when each of them in turn has stopped being able to update and stops working right because my iPhone is so damn old it won't run the new iOS.  But since I don't think I want to shell out three times the price for the unlocked iPhone 5, I thought the new touch would be nice.

So...  I need to decide what apps I want to put on it now....

applied for a credit card through our bank but had to have my husband co-sign since I don't have any history of revolving debt.  we've just happened to get our couple credit cards in his name, and I've never had one and it really is a good idea to.  so no big deal, will use it to buy a pony or something once a month, then pay it off every month.

the sweet part is that when they checked my credit, it's fantastic.  like, really really good.  because I haven't missed a student loan payment in five and a half years.  so even though I don't have a history of revolving credit so I need a co-signer, MY CREDIT SCORE IS AMAZING.

The cats made it to the UK and have safely arrived at the cattery.

Honestly, the most accurate description of all three cats.

as for me today, I'm glad that I feel better than yesterday.  I had a nasty bug so I stayed in bed all day (usually when I'm sick I at least camp out on the couch, but nope, extra sickface)  today the fever/chills/aches are gone and I just have a stuffy nose.  which... is like the worst and I'd kind of rather have the aches and chills, I hate it that much.  BUT at least I got myself out of bed by 3pm...  and there's soup in the slow cooker *u*

[single tear runs down face]

The really annoying thing about this hospitalization is that I had the flu in late January, starting with three days in the hospital because of it, and this new hospitalization happened barely more than a week after my recovery from that had reached the point where I could resume almost all of my normal weekly activities. This has been my worst winter since the winter that my chronic lung disease started, and that was ten years ago.

left for Detroit Friday morning, went back to my friend's last night, and came back to PGH today to walk around and see stuff with friend and her daughter.  and now I am home, wearing no pants, and can use my own shower and sleep in my own bed and actually be able to reblog properly XDD

found the log from an old AIM chat, one of the first Council Chats  *wipes away single nostalgic tear*  from the first half of 2006!  I think it was even before Down was with us!  anyway I laughed a lot reading it.  I remember sitting at my desk under my lofted dorm bed for all these old AIM chats!

Sci is no longer around but I had to put this quote in my sig because I think it sums us all up pretty well, even nine years later!

I keep trying to drag Sci back into the fandom, but she won't take the bait. Apparently crack ships aren't her thing.  I think my comment about one of my fic universes I've been toying with having a bit of Umi/Eagle in it, also squicked her.....

BUT!!!!!

WASHINGTON (AP) ? The Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.
Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court?s 5-4 ruling means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

one of my tumblr friends is visiting her boyfriend and he has a box full of minty Animorphs books!!! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ  I'm buying a bunch of them to fill in the gaps in my second collection (I have them all that I collected as they were coming out, but my sister and I might draw blood over them, so I've been slowly amassing a second collection over the years so we are both happy with our Animorphs hoards)

My copies of the Rayearth 2 mangas just arrived from Japan today! WEEEEEEEEEEeee! They're so pretty! They're pristine like the day they were printed and they use such nice paper to print them on *weeps* I was a design major I appreciate fine paper. Now maybe I can eventually get the first season...and maybe the reprints with the new covers *cough* So much Eagle...*buries her face in manga pages*

Maybe you won't believe it, but I watched the same thing four days ago! After I watched Grave of the Fireflies - one of the most depressing movies I've ever seen... - I needed something to lift me up... And suddenly the (second part of the) OAV came to mind! For the first time, I watched it in Japanese with English subtitles... Now I'm in love with Ferio's original voice <3

I think I love MKR more as time goes by.  like I love it more today than I did a year ago.  I think the only time I've loved it so much was in like 2001 at the height of my initial love affair with it.  part of it is our community and how I can just say silly things about the characters and prompt feels and stuff out of others so that makes loving MKR so much FUN.  anyway I'm just tipsy and a little embarrassed about how much I love MKR whoops <3

Months after stupidly wiping my old mac because I'm an idiot who fails to back up before a software update, I not only managed to pull most of my missing music off my old ipod, but I organised my itunes library.   All duplicates are removed and everything uploaded has album art!   I am very pleased with this.  No blank songs makes me so happy, because I'm a loser!   WHEEEEEE!!!!

Yes, it's fanfiction. The longest craziest and longest running fanfic in my repertoire, haha I've been working on it on and off for like 10 years. Yes I'm slightly crazy.

Thaaanks, I hope it works! :D
Is that a Umi/Eagle fanfiction? I'd like to read it someday! (I have always shipped Umi/Ascot, but I think Umi/Eagle could work somehow... Maybe because he's "white" and she's "blue" so they could really match? I mean, she's like water and he's like ice. OK, I'm rambling now)
If you think you're crazy, I just want to let you know that I've been creating Fuu/Ferio fanfictions in my mind for years, but I never managed to write anything D:

I just felt the need to post something on this topic for a reason that i wanted to let my thoughts out of my mind LOL..

 ;D So i was like tired the whole 24hrs with no sleep (Yes no sleep, literally) I just had a graveyard shift attending 90 patients.. so how was that? I felt so exhausted but i still dropped by in this site which made me feel a less distress and seeing such notifications in my tumblr makes me feel a less exhausted. Then i just had this idea of making a music video which covers my OTP (Clef/Umi) but i don't know how to do such and im figuring it out until now.. and i just install a movie maker and i was like thinking how to use it LOL

Also!  Moana Reo Moari!  It will be glorious and I am totally getting it on DVD when it comes out. I don't even fucking care!
