Björk: The Gate

 

MY SPIRIT HAS BEEN CLEANSED. THE FILTH HAS BEEN WASHED AWAY. I AM UNSULLIED. MY WIG HAS BEEN SNATCHED. MY SCALP IS REFRESHED. GROWTH HAS BEGUN ANEW. I AM BLINDED BY THE LIGHT. DIVINE GODDESS BJORK, WHO DWELLS IN A DIMENSION TOO HOLY FOR MANKIND, HAS COME TO THIS LOWLY PLANET AND RENEWED MY WORTHLESS EXISTENCE WITH PURPOSE. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED. CRYYYYYINNNNG.  

 

 

 

 

* On a serious note, I am really looking forward to her new album. The acceptance and joy that comes after the heartbreak of Vulnicura. My body, spirit, mind, etc, is ready. ( T u T )

YISA 005: A Place To Call Home

Feeling… Thankful
While Listening To“Riding (Day)” – Breath of the Wild

 

 

The past three days have been… adventurous. Let’s start with the first day. I was not awake when it happened, but Mark told me when I woke up Monday morning  that the power was gone. This is not really abnormal where I live. I would say every other month the power goes off for about 30 minutes to 2 hours, and it’s usually preceded by a scary explosion sound in the distance. Um… anyway… not a big deal. It was my assumption that with this whole hurricane ordeal we would just have to deal with the inconveniences for a few hours. That was before noon on Monday. Then came night time on Monday. I would say a good 8-10 hours passed, and we did not hear shit from the electric company besides “we’re working on it”. At that point we just had to make do. We went to Kroger, stocked up on canned foods, got our candles ready, got our flashlights ready, and just tried to have fun with it. “Fun” being Halli Galli and Scrabble and naps, basically. Lol. Oh, yeah. And everything within a five mile radius of our place was a dead zone, so I had no service on my phone either. Needless to say, it was an interesting day. I even found my Vita and played a shitload of games. FF Tactics, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy VI–all the good shit I downloaded eons ago. All of that aside, Mark and I went to bed around midnight and told ourselves that we should definitely have power by Tuesday because we couldn’t go 24 hours without power… right? 

 

 

 … And this is the part in a sitcom where they cut to the next 24 hours, and the person who spoke too soon is in the exact same situation but 200% angrier. Lmao. Actually, I can’t say I was angry. I was just… disappointed. We get up Tuesday morning with no power and decide, “Fuck it. Let’s just go deposit this check (basically, Mark’s check from Publix for stocks).” We leave around 9am. …The fucking bank wasn’t opening until noon ^^. Go back home for FF Tactics and naps. Go back to the credit union three hours later. Ta da! Check deposited! With no issues! *victory fanfare* With the extra money, we stock up on the supplies we couldn’t get due to our limited funds beforehand, and we head back home for another day in the dark. But, honestly, that depressed the shit out of us. Mark suggested we go on an impromptu date, and I’m glad that he did. We had pho, we got another board game to play (Arkham Horror), we got some things to read (Saga 44-46), and then we headed back home to prepare for the night. Honestly, the moment I stepped foot in the house I was in a crummy mood. (1) I had this cloud hanging over me because I knew the remaining hot water that was in the water heater would run out soon, and (2) everything remotely electronic was about to die including our phones. After ranting with Mark about how annoyed I was by the whole thing we decided to check into a hotel. BEST DECISION EVER . Keep in mind that I have not stayed in a hotel room for years, so this was exciting for me. We checked in (after getting hounded with promotional bullshit that neither of us had the patience to deal with), went in our room, and we instantly felt better. First of all, this place (still here >>) has a mini-kitchen, a living room, a bathroom, and a room, so it feels like home. Secondly, we both went 24+ hours without a long, hot shower or TV or the internet or all the things we take for granted, so we were losing out shit. Lmao! Anyway, after settling in and having dinner that wasn’t in a can and eaten in the dark (*sobs*) we went to bed, intending to check out Wednesday morning whether or not the power was back to save money.

 

 

 Yeah… We didn’t go anywhere. Lol. That’s actually my fault. The change in environment made it really hard for me to sleep last night, so I probably got… two hours of sleep? We were about two hours from checking out and Mark was in the shower, so I decided to squeeze in a quick nap before packing everything thing. I wake up hours later, freaking out because it was way past noon, and Mark was like, “It’s okay. I added another day for us”. Thank you, mochi ! Naturally, I went back to sleep (lmao), and Mark got us breakfast/lunch/brunch/whatever while I was sleeping so… I cannot thank Mark enough. Seriously. Anyway, I eventually got my lazy ass up and joined Mark in doing the run around while we continued waiting out this lack-of-power ordeal. We checked up on baby cat (he pretty much ignored us lol), grabbed some more clothes, bought some things at Wal-Mart, walked around Best Buy, and then came back to the hotel to add another day since it didn’t seem like the power would return until the weekend. Or at least that’s what GA Power was saying. BUT–but–we got our power back! Of course, this happened like an hour after we added an extra day, but it is no biggie. We cancelled the extra day, so we’ll be checking out tomorrow afternoon and heading back home. Finally. I’m so homesick right now that it doesn’t make any sense. I can’t wait to go back home! 

 

 

 Well, that should cover my entire experience with Hurricane Irma. The TL;DR version is that I was mildly inconvenienced. Seriously. Three days without power is nothing compared to the people who died or lost loved ones or lost their homes or are still going without power right now. So, it goes without saying that I am extremely lucky. Whatever it is I bitch about here is tiny, trivial shit. I am fully aware of that. Just wanted to let that be known before I continue with some minor, pointless bitching I am about to do. So, time for the minor, pointless bitching that in no way compares to what others are enduring. Tomorrow when I go home I have to dump everything in my fridge. This is the part of the power outage that we were not looking forward to at all, but there is really nothing that we can do about it. The fridge will be cleaned out completely and then refilled with the essentials. Actually, there may be more than the essentials since Mark and I had this grand idea to have a tiny feast to celebrate several things. Coming through this hurricane unharmed, Mark getting a new job, our financial situation taking a major turn–these are all things that we wish to celebrate once we are back home and settled in. I already yelled “HAM” the moment we had this idea, so everything else is pretty much up to Mark. If there is a feast I will always have two questions: “Where is your ham? And where is your macaroni and cheese?” Lmao. Anyway, I look forward to it. I plan to spend all day cooking, and having plenty of leftovers for the next few days! It will be a good homecoming celebration–amongst the other things we want to celebrate. ^^

 

 

…Uh…I think that is it.

Sorry about the weird-ass format. I mentioned wanting to change it in the past, so I’m considering this image-friendly, colorful format with paragraphs instead of bullets. Of course, that all depends on how I feel. If I feel lazy then I will probably end up doing the same shit. What else…?

I think that’s it.

I hope everyone is doing okay. I’m very, very, very, very glad that my Florida and Georgia family and friends came through these hurricanes in one piece. I hope everyone else is doing okay, too.

Please, mother nature, no more hurricanes!

Weiss Kreuz Gluhen OP

Never seen this anime but this song is my shit.

(I’ll try to post more than songs I like, I guess.)

Avatars! Avatars! Avatars!

I’ll post a real entry soon but first… BUT FIRST… MORE AVATARS.

*My OCs are lame but I love them.

Edit: Forgot to add my boo, Aisne (lol). Also, another version of Odin.

Aisne

Odin_Dragon

Survey + Mythology = Yes!

I’m stressed out with added writer’s block. Time to answer cool questions! ^^

  • Aphrodite: What do you love most about yourself?
    Huehuehue~ I’m amazed by own skills sometimes (don’t look at me like that).
  • Apollo: Do you have any talents?
    A few. My main focus is always drawing though.
  • Ares: What small thing makes you angry?
    DON’T TOUCH MY STUFF. I WILL LOSE MY FUCKING MIND.
  • Artemis: What are you hunting for in life?
    A constant, reasonable level of inner peace.
  • Athena: What is/was your best school subject?
    … I aced biology. Like, I did better in biology than art. LOL. I don’t know why. I’m not really that interested in biology, but it sticks for some reason.
  • Demeter: Do you miss anyone?
    I always miss the people I adore.
  • Dionysus: Do you drink alcohol? If so, what’s your beverage of choice?
    Yes. If it’s fruity I will devour it whole and hate myself later.
  • Eros: How do you define your sexuality?
    I am attracted to personalities before anything else. Yes, I do find some people physically attractive, but they’re just eye candy. I can’t develop feelings for a person unless there is a genuine connection present.
  • Gaia: Where’s your favorite place in the world?
    Hmm… Anywhere that is quiet, isolated, and preferably with blankets.
  • Hades: Have you ever had a near-death experience?
    Yes. Now I’m pretty sure my own downfall will likely be clumsiness and/or bad luck.
  • Hecate: What do you think of magic?
    I wish on everything that it was real; however, there is no real evidence out there.
  • Helios: Do you sunburn easily?
    Not at all. I just get sweaty and temporarily darker in the sun.
  • Hephaestus: What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made or built?
    When I was a kid I used to build landscapes in shoeboxes, cut slits at the top, draw random characters, cut them out, tie those characters to strings, and make these little puppet shows. I’m sure I made better things over the years, but thinking of those little puppet shows always makes me smile. I was so precious ( T w T ).
  • Hera: Are you the jealous type?
    No. If I have time to get jealous then I have time to improve.
  • Hermes: Have you ever stolen anything?
    … I thought I was being cool as a kid by stealing Spice Girl lollipops. Not cool at all.
  • Hestia: Where’s your home away from home?
    My car…? LOL. I don’t know. Home is home. Nowhere else makes me as comfortable.
  • Hyperion: Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets?
    Sunsets.
  • Hypnos: What was your most recent dream about?
    All I remember is Tom Hiddleston(sp?) asking me to recommend a place for him to stay because he was new, and I kept taking him to random places in classified ads that all ended up being comically horrible. LOL
  • Iris: What’s your favorite color palate?
    Pastel blues, pastel pinks, pastel purples–mainly those.
  • Kronos: What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever eaten?
    Ah, who knows. I’ll shove just about anything in my piehole as long as it’s edible.
  • Nemesis: What’s a time you helped deliver justice?
    Um… I guess when I did jury duties?
  • Nike: What’s your most recent accomplishment?
    I beat Persona 5! Whoo! This is huge for me because I never actually finished a Persona game. The closest I got was the final boss of P3 and then my memory card got corrupted. ^^
  • Nyx: What’s your favorite nighttime activity?
    SLEEP. …And video games.
  • Pan: What do you do for fun?
    Too many things. I draw a lot. I write a lot. I live on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and PS Vue. I play a whole lot of video games. I go to the movies regularly. I do plenty of shopping, online and offline. I just keep myself busy and spoiled as often as possible.
  • Persephone: What’s your favorite season of the year?
    Autumn. A nice, rainy autumn day… I could cry right now… especially thinking of this sticky, cocksucking heat outside. ( ; u ; )
  • Poseidon: What’s your favorite sea creature?
    * ALL OF THEM. SEA CREATURES ARE THE BEST (after cats). But if I had to choose only one I would choose jellyfishes.
  • Rhea: What’s your favorite type of nature?
    … Type of nature? I’m not sure what that means. I guess I’ll just choose an aspect of nature that I like. I like forests.
  • Selene: What’s your favorite phase of the moon?
    Waning crescent.
  • Tartarus: What’s your personal hell?
    Being surrounded by countless strangers who are all talking about banal, shallow crap and touching me. I… would choke myself to death… ^_^
  • Thanatos: Is there anyone you just really, really hate?
    I don’t hate anyone. I do hate irritating-ass tendencies though.
  • Uranus: What are your zodiac signs?
    My star sign is Cancer. My Chinese zodiac is fire rabbit. …That’s all I really know. When we start getting into sun/moon/whatever rising then I am completely lost.
  • Zeus: What do you think about thunderstorms?
    Great! Send more!

 

*sigh* I’m going to get some ice cream.

Moonpools and Caterpillars – Heaven

tumblr_ne45hkPjna1r5ps77o1_500

I believe in Heaven and know
That I should just accept it all
So content with the paths that I walk on
Surely I should see it all

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul

I’ve looked into the sky one hundred times
And I’ve seen the stars that shine so bright
And I’m sure that one of them is you, my friend
Watching and waiting and hoping that I’ll be alright

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul

I believe in Heaven and know
That I should just accept it all
So content with the paths that I walk on
Surely, surely, surely I should see it all

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far
The road back home is shorter than you know

The road back home is shorter than you know
The road back home is shorter than you know
The road back home is shorter than you know

 

Obi!

20150522_180837

  • This is Obi. It is mostly a nickname for “Obsidian”, but it is also a reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi because we can do some Jedi-like things with it. Like tell it to do stuff and it does it.
  • I love the voice command ability. I didn’t think I would care about it until I tried it and realized how cool it was.
  • In truth, all of the features are really neat. The ability to suspend a game to open an app, to close the app with a voice command to open the game back up, to tell the system to take a screenshot while your hands are busy playing–it’s all really nifty! I’m still learning all of the features, but the ones I’ve encountered so far were pretty cool.
  • Gaming wise, it has just been The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt since I got Obi on Friday. I did download DC Universe and took on the free trial of Playstation Now. Both are fun… just not TW3 fun. LOL. It has completely consumed my weekend. I believe what makes this game so addictive is the fact that it has hundreds of interesting plots within this one uber-interesting plot. Each quest, regardless of how insignificant it seems, has this back story that blows your mind until the next quest. The gameplay is fun. I love seeing features from the previous Witcher titles along with being introduced to some newer things. I love how the books are being integrated into the games. Of course, I love Geralt as much as I did when I first picked up “The Last Wish”… because he is a jerkass but he’s also really sweet when he wants to be. Overall, I am more than happy to dedicate hours of my life to this game. Already it is inspiring me to draw more and write more because it is so creative. I just really love this game. If there was any PS4 game worth getting the console for it is this one.
  • Really, I cannot express enough how happy I am that I finally got Obi. It was worth all the saving and waiting and ogling at every PS4 I saw on display with a breaking heart (LOL). Yes, the price tag was painful to even look at, but when I consider all of my other consoles and how much joy they brought me I can’t really put a price on that. I look forward to all the released and unreleased games I will get to experience with Obi. For now, though, let’s just focus on saving one fictional, war-torn world before I jump into any others. 😛

I’m so glad that I have a three-day weekend because (a)more time to play, and (b)shorter work week which means coming even closer to the next weekend. So, it all works out. Everything just lined up well this week for a change. I plan to take full advantage of that!

Anyway, I’m going to catch up on Game of Thrones (I really need to discuss the direction this series is taking soon because it is definitely as unpleasant as it is controversial), and then it is back into my TW3 marathon. I have screenshots and clips saved that I’d like to post. It’ll come around soon enough. I have been lifeless in terms of blogging and social networking because I’ve been gaming something fierce in recent months, so I can’t say when I’ll post anything else. We’ll see.

With that, I am off~

Enjoy (what’s left of) your Memorial Day Weekend! ^_^

 

Vita, Video Games, Venice, and Vipertek

  Remember how I was debating about getting a PS4, Wii U, or the 3DS? Yeah, I didn’t decide on any of those.

20150331_220030

Instead I did some research and decided that getting a PS Vita would be best. (1) It is portable which is great because I’m rarely home except for the weekends, and (2) I can play a shitload of PS One classics without having to deal with my PS2 giving up mid-gameplay. So, needless to say, I’m excited! I got this combo pack with a free Borderlands 2 download and 8 GB memory card for $200. Good deal. And when I do eventually get a PS4 I can link the systems to do more nifty things. I’m looking forward to that. ^___^

20150402_213524

Getting this game was a must. I’m 100% here for Final Fantasy X, especially since I lost my master file on the PS2 years back. It was… frustrating. I was so proud of that file because Yuna was the strongest melee fighter in my party and it was fucking hilarious at times. Anyhoo, restarting again doesn’t bother me. It’s high time that I did another FFX replay. As for FFX-2 I’ll might replay it for the battle system, but I’m not making any promises.

20150404_092721

 

From top to bottom: FFX HD (with a FFX-2 that I didn’t install yet), Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy VI, Bust-A-Move 4, and Xenogears. I’m not going to bother installing Borderlands 2 since I already have it on the 360. And it’s huge in terms of memory usage. Of course there are some Final Fantasy games missing from this collection but I’m trying not to overwhelm myself anymore than I already have. I didn’t think I would be overwhelmed until I played Xenogears for an hour turned it off to play Chrono Cross up to Arni Village, turned that off to start on FFIX, turned that off to play Chrono Cross again, turned that off to play FFX, and… yeah… I think each time I complete a Final Fantasy then I’m going to move on to another. FFVII will be last because I just did a replay last year. So, I’ll tackle IX or VI, then download VIII since I never finished my Steam playthrough, and keep repeating that pattern until I have everything from I to X. As for other PS games I’m just going to take it easy for a little while. It’s one thing to get games like Bust-A-Move that are fun ways to shoot the shit, but RPGs take a lot of focus. At least for me. *sigh* This is all sounds like first world problems, doesn’t it. LOL. Yeah, I’m going to stop and just say–overwhelming or not–I am over the moon about having these games around to play again. Except for Xenogears. This is my first time playing Xenogears (so ashamed ;_;), so I can’t say “again”. But I can say it is extremely awesome and I already adore Citan. Please don’t disappoint me. >_<

Interior

I couldn’t walk away from this sketchbook because, well, it’s obviously aesthetically pleasing, but I also kept hearing “Tour of Venice” and “Dream of Venice” when I looked at it. After I told Mark about that he advised me to draw Ezio leaping across one of the buildings in the background. Yes! I’m going to do it. LOL. Anyway, we had a long discussion afterwards about the fact that we have never been overseas together, and while it seems like the obvious choice would be Japan I am leaning more towards Italy. I want to do a sort of tour, going from Rome to Venice to Florence. I mean, we did meet in Latin class after all. It would not be a meaningless trip when we put into consideration all the aspects of Italian history that we both love and can thank for bringing us together. So, that’s it. I want to go to Italy. Even if I can just go to one city then I will go to one city. Half of me is screaming “Rome!” while the other is like “Dude, Venice has boat rides and the Carnival of Venice!” I think if I remind Mark that he can wear his beloved plague doctor mask for hours at a time then he will be up for Venice too. Okay, Venice it is. I’m going to start saving and planning for it. I also need to consider putting aside my other language lessons in order to start working on Italian. I’ve taken a swing at Italian in the past, and all of those years of Latin makes it a tad easier to understand than say Japanese or German. I’m excited. I only hope it works out better than other plans I’ve made. LOL

 

20150403_042308

 

Last but not least my first taser, Vipertek. I feel so much better now that I have this. Four days a week I have to drop Mark off at work at three in the morning, and that is not the most comforting time to be outside on your own–even if it’s only a 10-second run from the parking lot to your apartment. It is slightly terrifying to own though. I’m always worried that I’ll accidentally turn it on somehow and electrocute myself. LOL. I don’t even have to do something moronic like testing it on myself to know that it will hurt. We armed it yesterday to see how it would look, and it was LOUD. Sparkly but loud. I can only compare the sound to the crack of a whip. I shrieked but Mark thought it was cool. Then again, this is the same guy who spent his birthday money and giftcards on knives, so he would. -_-

Well, I’m off. Later in the day I want to pick up some Italian language books, but before that I have to look into getting another bookshelf, doing some serious spring cleaning, getting groceries in the house, and just being semi-productive this weekend. In between I will squeeze in some gaming time. Since I want to play so many games I will have to dedicate 30-60 minutes on each game. A little Xenogears there, a little FFIX there, a little Bioshock Infinite after that, a little Assassin’s Creed 2 too. Oh! Gold members get a free AC: Black Flag and Army of Two on the 16th. DUUUUUUUDDDEEE. All Mark and I ever talk about these days are those fucking naval battle clips we see in Black Flag. I can’t wait. ; u ;

Really, it’s nice that I am getting back into video games like. It’s not like I ever stopped playing between the age of five and… now, but recent years have been kind of “eh”, you know? I’m so into it now that I am returning to that point where I will draw fanart and stuff like that again. It feels good. I love getting so passionate about something that it inspires me in other departments of my life. Yes, time is scarce these days, especially with this whole project of ours to make our apartment not look borderline condemned anymore (LMAO), but… I’m hopeful. Things are getting better in every way imaginable. I’m happy. No, more than that, I’m pumped!

LET’S ACCOMPLISH SOME SHIT . >:o

“If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”

tumblr_nhmzowWjUo1rl1jado2_1280tumblr_nhmzowWjUo1rl1jado1_1280

  • Look at this peaceful cat. He has zero stress, all of his bills are paid, he’s eating and drinking right, he found the meaning of life, he got a bonus at his cat job, etc. He also kind of reminds me of Jeff Bridges. I don’t know why.
  • Bioshock Infinite is free on Xbox 360 if you have gold. Spread the word ASAP.
  • I’m usually resistant to massive overhauls on websites (because I have the soul of a grumpy old lady when it comes to unexpected changes), but I love Grooveshark’s new layout a lot. I like the new Youtube app on XBox Live a lot too. It’s really clean~ I can’t wait for more clean updates on other websites~
  • I haven’t been in the loop of things lately, so I just found out today that Mirjana from ANTM was murdered. This is terrible news. She was a beautiful girl that was more than capable of achieving her dream to be a model. I hope her killers get punished thousands of times over for this. RIP Mirjana.
  • I decided to check out Birdman and Whiplash because the plots sounded interesting, and I’m glad that I did. Of the two I would have the say that Whiplash blew my mind the most. It really puts into perspective the importance of resilience. And even though I’m not gushing as much about Birdman that does not take away from it’s brilliance. I always love stories where the protagonist’s enemy is his/her own self. That’s probably why Amadeus and Donnie Darko ended up being my favorite movies. 😛
  • Honestly, if I had $400 right now to buy any console I wanted I would not know which one to get. Here are some things I am putting into consideration:
    • Playstation 4: I haven’t had a Sony console in many, many years, so I don’t want to keep dragging my foot until a PS5 comes along; however, it is the most expensive console out there, and I’m not sure it is 100% worth it (maybe 95%) when I look at the current game selection it has. I see myself playing Type-0, playing tons of PS classic games (XENOGEARS THO), but… that’s about it. The Witcher 3 will not come around ’til May or so. No one knows when FFXV will get here. No one knows when KH3 will get here. I’m not really interested in most of the FPS out right now (though Mark is). There is FFXIV but MMOs are a huge commitment to me. Also, those monthly fees? NOPE. I’m thinking I should get a cheaper console first then get a PS4 later in the year. I don’t know.
    • Wii U: Nintendo games are always fun… but outside of Zelda and Metroid games that is all that they are. A lot of fun. Little else. Still, they always have the best multiplayer games. I played Hyrule Warriors and that one was difficult to part with. The same goes for Mario Kart 8. I haven’t heard anything about recent Mario Party games, but I never get tired of those. I can see Mark and me having a shitload of fun times with those, especially now that he has left BAM. These are things I should definitely consider. I should also consider that new Zelda and Starfox games are coming out soon. So, a Wii U is not even optional anymore, is it? LOL. I refuse to be late when it comes to this new Zelda game. REFUSE.
    • New Nintendo 3DS x2: For $400 Mark and I can get two of the new Nintendo 3Ds consoles. That would provide us with a console that is both strong in the single and multiplayer department. Additionally, I did trade in my 3DS for Dragon Age: Inquisition a while ago (no regrets), and it’s about time to replace it. I have no handheld consoles right now. I also have my 3DS XL games still… so it’s kind of lame that I have no means of playing them outside of Mark’s 3DS. Then there’s Majora’s Mask. Then there’s Xenoblade Chronicles. Then there’s Alpha Sapphire. A lot of games to play without even mentioning all of the items in their shop.
    • Final Decision: None. I’m about to kick myself in the ass because in a matter of months I’ll have the funds to get one of these things, and yet I have no idea which one because I’m so indecisive. But it is better to dwell on it for weeks instead of buying a console (or consoles) that I will regret purchasing. Not regret as in a “this console sucks” way. It is more of a timing issue. If I have to wait another year or so to get another one then I should really choose a console that will have the most to offer. Either way, poor XBox 360. It’s likely going to end up in the living room, collecting dust with my Wii. LOL
  • Added three new books to my pile: “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, “Never Let me Go”, and “Murder on the Orient Express.” When I talk to other bookworms they’re always shocked that I haven’t read those books yet, so I’m going to start. Eventually :I. BTW, it’s time for another bookshelf. Looking forward to it. I’m going to organize the shit out of this apartment just in time for the whole Spring cleaning thing.

I’m going to end this with two of my favorite things: bibimbap and Link in a shirt. :OOOOOO

Counterclockwise: bibimbap (this is the cold version compared to the hot pot version–or dolsot bibimbap, I believe), rice, kimchi, that red bottle is the sweet/spicy sauce you add to the dish, then miso soup, and then some vitamin water. All for around$7-8. If you’re not eating at Assi every once in a while then you are missing out. They always have great, authentic Asian meals with a lot of items to enjoy for half of what you would pay at other restaurants. If Assi is in your area you should give ’em a try. 🙂

We never put clothes on Link, but when we saw this shirt at the thrift store for $2 we thought about how cute it would look on Link and we were right. It’s the cutest thing ever. The only downside is that he gets so angry about it that he’ll keep randomly biting us until we remove it. XDD
