Worst Behavior (+TIAACP 10)

Accurate portrayal of Hawke x Anders + Justice

  • I got called “talkative” yesterday. The world must be ending. In my defense the guy I was talking to was cool as hell. It’s easy to talk to people like that no matter how introverted or extroverted you are.
  • Me trying to enjoy songs that are nice but have problematic lyrics/artists:

tumblr_m6woy96flf1qiqqgt

  • The best decision I ever made was buying this huge jar of coconut oil at Costco for like $16. There is so much of it and I use coconut oil for everything–deep conditioning my hair, moisturizing my skin, for some of my food and drinks, everything. And despite how much I use it there is still way too much. I’m glad it doesn’t expire until 2020. Anyway, I have nothing but praise for coconut oil. Use that shit like your life depends on it.
  • FFXIII-2: I decided to continue my replay after like two years, and now I’m finally at the end of the game. That doesn’t mean I’m ready to face the final boss though. I did manage to get Serah and Noel’s ravager and commando roles to 99 but everything else is around level 40. I really don’t know how I got this far with such a shitty saboteur and synergist level. Without a doubt I made things way harder than they needed to be by completely ignoring those roles. The medic role is not an issue because the monster in my party (IDK his actual name since I renamed him Francis) is a great medic, so that role will probably be the last one that I touch. What else is left? Sentinel? That tells you how much I actually play that role. LOL. Yeah, I have a lot of work to do before I see the end. Also, Lightning Returns is finally falling into the $20 range, and I did say I would pick up a used copy once the price was low enough. The FFXIII trilogy is lacking in many areas but never combat. I love the battle systems. Maybe I’ll trade in some games I’m not playing and knock the price down. We’ll see.
  • Life Is Strange: Can’t wait for the next episode. It’s far from perfect but it’s still interesting enough to keep watching on Youtube whenever it gets released.
  • Watching “The X-Files” and “The Lone Gunmen” all week made me realize that Langly is in my top twenty in terms of favorite fictional characters. He is just the quintessential nerd character that is brilliant when it comes to the things that matter to him and then a complete mess in every other department. LOL. I’m so disappointed that “The Lone Gunmen” got cancelled so quickly. It is so much like “Firefly” in that it has great characters, great stories, and the perfect balance of drama, suspense, action, and comedy. Also, like “Firefly”, Fox cancelled it long before its time. I would love to see more from “The X-Files” and “The Lone Gunmen” in the future, even if it is just a movie. One can hope, I guess.
  • I’m really loving Nintendo this year. New 3DS system and Majora’s Mask this month, Xenoblade Chronicles on the 3DS in April, and then a rumored live-action Zelda series on Netflix. There’s also the rumor of the new Starfox and Zelda games on the Wii U coming out this year too. Even more reason to fangirl Nintendo than usual right now.
  • There is a Spaceball sequel in the works too. Yes, 2015. YES. Keep it coming!

 

Okay, that’s about it. Going to upload some ACNL pictures I took after not playing for like one year with the same pointless comments. As usual. -_-

Um… No? Also, excuse me?

I love this exterior, but all the flowers and hydrangeas had to go. Maybe it’ll look better in the spring? 😐

064: A Return, Indeed

tumblr_m19wdl03v31qen34fo1_r1_500

☆彡 Note to self: Regardless of how unsure I am about the direction of a story or artwork I am working on, keep going! I improve and find ideas so long as I am working on something.

★彡 I am watching Sailor Moon Super with the dubs rather than subs, and I noticed something kind of disturbing for the first time. In the subs when the sailors are scolding villains, they usually say something along the lines of “How dare you disturb someone trying to accomplish a beautiful dream!” or “I won’t let you get in the way of this couple’s pure love!”. But in the English version, it’s primarily name calling and insulting someone’s appearance. Did the translator just sit there one night and go: “There is no way American girls will relate to Sailor Moon unless we make her really superficial. Let’s have her call villains ugly, poorly dressed, and witches. Yeah, that will do it!” That is just kind of sad to me. Almost as sad as hiding the fact that some sailors are homosexuals and transsexuals/cross-dressers. Basically, it’s as if they’re saying that little girls elsewhere are mature enough to handle these concepts yet American girls cannot. That’s not even kind of sad. That’s really sad.

☆彡 While I am on the topic of Sailor Moon, one of my favorite scenes in the anime is the scene when Sailor Moon fights Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. It perfectly embodies why I adore Usagi so much. By the way, it starts at 13m and 47s.

★彡 I did something I haven’t done in 13-14 years. I bought some compositions notebooks, and started drawing and writing in them. One book is dedicated to drawing without the stress of ruining a good sketchbook, another book is dedicated to making manga, and the last one is a database of useful information that will help me with my creations–things like mythological names, drawing/writing tips, weapons, maps, etc. I am very close to buying a new scanner too. I just need to double check some things to make sure that I’m not ruining my budget. The last object I need in my “studio” is a working tablet, but that’s not terribly important. I can still make art with good ol’ pencils and colored pencils and markers…though I definitely need some new ones. Overall, I am pretty excited! I doubt I can ever scan anything in these books, so I will have to rely on some type of photo app or something to share it. I’ll see.

☆彡 Wow, I haven’t played Final Fantasy XIII-2 in a long time. Right now I am all out of wild artefacts, and I basically have to do busy work to find another one. Mark keeps telling me to just google their locations but…I don’t like to do that. It reminds me of using notes during a test. Even if it gets the job done, I feel like I don’t deserve to celebrate any victories that come afterwards. Weird. I know. So, I’ll just have to find patience and continue combing various locations and timelines for wild artefacts. Blah. Just thinking about it makes me want to play something else.

★彡 My favorite thing about Ming (of Lost Odyssey) is that she is a scantily clad woman who is wise. It is so hard to find this type of combination. More than often, a woman who shows a lot of skin in a television show or game behaves like an airhead. It’s only a few works like Final Fantasy and Ghost in the Shell that do not use the “amount of skin a woman shows is inversely related to the amount of things a woman knows” formula. Don’t get me wrong. I know that some people do fall into stereotypes, but it’s pretty bad when all of the women in a show or game who wears revealing clothing is automatically written off as uneducated. How does that type of universe work? “Oh, wow, let me put on this tube top–” PROMPT: YOU JUST LOST 80 IQ POINTS. “Okay, I’ll just get this turtleneck then.”

☆彡 I’m debating with myself about cutting my hair because it is past my shoulders again. A part of me is slightly curious to see how far it can go, but I know that the longer it gets the more frustrated I will become with it. Maybe I should put this decision off until it does become frustrating. Yeah, that makes more sense.

★彡 Damn, The Witcher 3 is going to be awesome. You know what else is going to be awesome? Man of Steel. If I am wrong about it in a few months then I will accept my wrongness, but I am really confident about this movie. It will be to the Superman movie series what Batman Begins became to the Batman movie series. And how did this go from The Witcher 3 to Superman and Batman? D:

☆彡 What I wouldn’t give to own the entire collection of the Berserk mangas. Well…I wouldn’t give my limbs or anything like that, but I’d trade in a good amount of my possessions.

★彡 March is going to be ridiculous in terms of gaming. Just a little preview of upcoming games: Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Judgment, and God of War: Ascension. Yeah…I’m going to listen to the little voice in my head telling me to avoid temptation. Adding another game to my list is not going to bode well for me. -_-

☆彡 When I think about all the things I don’t know or fully understand, it makes me feel…small. Worse than accumulating careless mistakes over the years, I hate looking back and realizing that I haven’t learned a satisfactory amount of things. As funny as it is, the thing that always makes me come to this conclusion is watching Jeopardy. Yeah…I know…LOL

★彡 Pet Peeve #81: Being called “honey”, “sweetie”, etc. I feel bad about this pet peeve because Mark likes to call people “dear”, and I know a lot of decent people who use terms like that to address others, but it just gets under my skin. And, no, Mark has no pet name for me. I told him from day one that if he called me “baby” or anything like that I would vomit. He still trolls me by calling me “boobie” but that’s as far as it goes. 😄

☆彡 Dolsot Bibimbap:

yes good

★彡 I really love operas. It is literally a group of people singing a story. Think about how amazing that is for a second.

☆彡I like Tyrion’s philosophy to his flaws: wear it like armor. I like it a lot.

★彡 Adult Swim is supposed to release a shitload of awesome shows on Netflix this month. Cannot handle. D:

☆彡 Mass Effect borrowed a lot from the Star Trek universe. For example, there is a race of blue people called the ‘nasari‘ and they are fighting a race of primarily females called the taresian. The taresians are known for mating with other races in order to supplement their gene pool with new traits. Interesting, huh? That’s just a small percentage of the many things Mark and I found. I’m not even remotely mad at Mass Effect for that. I think it’s awesome that the Mass Effect team are (a)fans of the Star Trek series, and (b)capable of turning that inspiration into something amazing. Even if the asari is based on some Star Trek races, they are still neat. Hell, they’re better than the nasari and taresian combined! Besides, I can’t think of any great piece of work that didn’t borrow from another piece of work. TL;DR one cool project borrows from another cool project and everything becomes infinitely cooler!

I am on a drawing, gaming, and reading spree at the moment! As much as I would like to update on a daily basis and keep a better log of my life, I kind of buried myself in too many hobbies…and they are too fun to stop. LOL. I’m not complaining. I just have to find a way to squeeze other hobbies like writing and finishing random series in there. I’ll find a way.

The Borgs are finally showing up in Voyager, so I am getting into that immediately. o_o

Energize. *dematerializes* (….still gotta work on a good outro, I see…)

I am okay with this because Hope is adorable. I’m just glad it’s not Snow. *shudders*

☆彡 Wait… Geralt is on the cover of Game Informer? And he has a beard?

2mhvqlu.jpg

Geralt, you’re ruining my life. Stahp.

★彡 Speaking of The Witcher, I am slowly but surely sucking less in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. My problem is that I have fallen in that trap of constantly rushing through things out of some false notion that I am busy. I am not busy. Constantly occupied, maybe, but not busy. There is no reason why I can’t sit through a game like The Witcher 2, and thoroughly enjoy it. I just started to take advantage of alchemy and traps after all this time that I’ve been playing. I really need to chill when it comes to this game. You know, take my time and not try to rush through it. The approach I take in other RPGs will not fly in this game. That’s for sure. I’ve had my ass handed to me so many times, I can’t even bother to count.

☆彡 I haven’t played Final Fantasy XIII-2 lately. I want to, but…those damn gravitons cores. I hate searching missions. It feels like busy work.

★彡 I did finally manage to get Javik to join my party in Mass Effect 3. He’s…interesting. By the way, he doesn’t sound Jamaican to me. His accent actually sounds very similar to Nigerians that I have spoken to. Either way, it’s cool. He made me laugh really hard when Liara said that she wrote about Protheans in several journals and he responded with something along the lines of, “Asaris can write now?”. Then there is the scene when he called Salerians lizards and she corrected him with the term ‘amphibians’ before he told her in the calmest tone, “They used to eat flies”. Then she just stares at him for a long time and exits the rooms. LOL. Poor bb. I know she was so excited to meet him, but Javik is having exactly none of anyone’s shit today. Not even mine. We’ll just have to see how he settles in as the game progresses.

☆彡 Please don’t look at or poke or mention my cheekbones.

tumblr_mhtkeogBU41r4esu7o1_500

★彡 I can’t watch The Jerk just once. As soon as the movie is over, I have to play it again. My record is four times. Yes, I watched this movie for almost eight hours. Think about that, and think about how great it is to not live with me. Also, I do the same thing with Garden State…and Amadeus…and Donnie Darko.

☆彡 Speaking of Amadeus, Mozart wrote his first opera when he was twelve–TWELVE. I am 25, and I can’t even finish one comic book. Like…how do I even? I don’t know anymore. *evaporates* I guess it is just like a quote I saw: perfectionist = procrastinator. What is the point in making an effort with anything if I can’t do it perfectly or even almost perfectly? That is my mentality sometimes…too many times.

★彡 Link does not get along with his tail. It’s both strange and funny. The thing that usually causes a fight to break out is his tail slapping him in the face while he’s sleeping. He likes to sleep in a ‘C’ shape sometimes, and that is when the tail-slapping session almost always starts. Then he bites his tail. Then he chases it. Then he falls off the bed while chasing it–which pisses him off. Then he jumps around in this sideways motion trying to grab it. Once more, strange and funny. Definitely amusing.

☆彡 I only want three things this month: Hyrule Historia, the complete box set of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, and strawberry cheesecake. Please.

★彡 The main character of a story I am writing is basically a serial killer. Well…not basically. He is a serial killer by definition, yet he is not the villain in the story. Therefore, I have to do a lot to make him likable and even relatable. It’s not easy. Of course, Dexter is pretty likable and relatable, but that’s Dexter. He’s not so much an assassin, but a vigilante gone wrong. *sigh* Definitely tough…

☆彡 I hate break-ups. I think one of the worst moments I’ve had in the past few months was when I found out Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman broke up. It just left a bad feeling at the pit of my stomach. All break-ups do that.

★彡 I wonder if character developers ever think about how crazy it is to create a person. It’s a person! No, (s)he may not be there right in front of you, but you gave someone a name, a purpose, friends, family, enemies, and even a collection of personal issues to solve. It’s amazing! Someone once said to me: “I don’t get how authors like J.K. Rowling get emotional over characters she created and decided to kill,” and my first response was:

stahp

Is this a serious question or…? Really, if you kill a character of yours and you don’t feel anything at all, even some type of sadistic satisfaction, then you are doing it wrong.

☆彡 I don’t get people who call me and ask: “Who is this?” Shouldn’t I be asking you that? LOL

★彡 Pet Peeve #22:  “Can I sit with you?” …Why? There’s like 100 other seats. I’d understand if the seat next to me was one of the last seats left, but I don’t understand wanting to sit next to a complete stranger when you have countless other places to sit.

☆彡 I still haven’t seen Go-Busters yet. It’s not some anti-Go-Busters thing…which seems to be happening a lot…I just never never really got around to it.

★彡 I’m dreading that last Berserk movie because most of the reviews I’ve read said that it was great but extremely brutal and disturbing. I believe it. The movies compared to the anime are…wow. If a child ever walked in during one of those movies, I would freak the hell out and ban them from whatever room the movie is playing it. It can get that bad at times. The scene with Griffith and Charlotte alone was more like a porn than an actual “love scene” in a movie. It was pretty graphic. I can’t imagine watching the Eclipse knowing just how far this movie can go in terms of details and content. It even received the Japanese equivalent of the NC-17 rating. I…just wow. I definitely can’t watch this movie with Mark now. I know for a fact I will cry, and he makes a big deal every time I do. So, I’d rather not. I will be watching that shit alone…then handling the definite depression that will follow alone. The things I do for my fandoms. *sigh*

I have nothing witty to add, so I’m just going to fly away. *flys away*

058: Norwegian Wood

tumblr_mf9fz9nKiX1rmu6i5o1_400

☆彡 I don’t have a singular thing that I chase nonstop. I prefer to be a Renaissance woman, learning one thing after another whilst improving the abilities I already have. This is also known as jack of all trades yet master of none. Don’t get me wrong. There are some things I would love to master, particularly drawing and the piano, but I see myself feeling regret over not doing something as opposed to not perfecting something.

★彡 I am finally getting into Being Human (UK). I didn’t think it would be campy or upbeat, but I didn’t see it getting so…dark. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that the characters are sublime. The moment I met Annie, George, and Mitchell, I instantly found myself attached to them. I should really stop doing that: getting attached to fictional characters who have a 100% chance of dying.

☆彡 I’m reading Kafka on the Shore again. I absolutely love everything Haruki Murakami writes. If I could be half the author that he is, I’d write all of the time. But I’m not. 😦

★彡 I could eat fettuccine alfredo topped with parmesan forever. But I shouldn’t. But I want to. ; ____ ;

☆彡 Final Fantasy XIII-2 has reminded me of my fascination with theories about time and different dimensions. It is probably why I attached to works like Ocarina of Time, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Donnie Darko, and Doctor Who so quickly. *_*

★彡 Most people I come across loathe rain, snow, and pretty much any weather condition that isn’t sunny. I don’t get it. I like sunny days too, but each weather condition has something cool about it. Even foggy days have this…mysterious aspect to it. I like it. It’s the closest I can come to an adventure while drinking tea under a blanket.

☆彡 It’s comical that we live in an age where not giving away every detail of your life equals you hiding some type of dark secret. This is the curse of living in a time of social networks. People have forgotten how to filter themselves. People used to be like Christmas morning. You used to have to wait and unwrap layers of them before you saw the surprise underneath. Now, people just toss everything they are into a digital box and dump it on your feed. It’s…unsettling. It’s exactly why I stopped using my real name on social networks. I really didn’t want to know that the girl I used to talk to about Yu Yu Hakusho in art class had to take a shit, or that she bought new panties that she just had to pose for her friends list…family members included *shudders*. That is too personal for comfort. The only person I know IRL that I am comfortable seeing naked (or might-as-well-be naked) is Mark, and even then I am not comfortable with knowing anything related to his wastes. Excuse me for being uptight and not wanting to see everyone’s genitals and excrement. Really, I’d rather not be around others, but when I do find someone interesting I want to know him/her in an “old-school” fashion. We talk. We hang out. We get close enough to go beyond chit-chat. We become very good friends. THEN we maybe talk about things like bodily functions and undergarments. Otherwise, hide, delete, or (if they become whiny after being hidden or deleted) block.

★彡 SNESbox.com is amazing. I’ve not only played games from my childhood, but I’ve also played games that I wanted to play in my childhood but couldn’t because they were never released in the US. Oh, yeah. And games that weren’t released in the US, but I played them once I learned about emulators in my adolescence but then that computer crashed with all of my saved files…and the RPG maker game I worked on for years…and all of my stories….*teardrop* Nostalgia is a strange thing though. It starts off with a tinge of sadness but flourishes into so many other pleasant recollections. I am happy to have things like these. They are fail-proof methods of having a good day…or turning a bad day better.

☆彡 Speaking of awesome websites, StumbleUpon is awesome. It’s like going to school for free minus all the bullshit you already know or don’t want to know. Learning is fun. 🙂

★彡 I don’t own a single Beatles, Daft Punk, NieR, Maxwell, Wu-Tang or Radiohead album. Plenty of MP3s, but no albums. I really have to fix this. The thing is that I own exactly zero CD players. I could just use a game console…but it’s not the same. Oh, well. I’ll probably invest in a stereo one day, and start building a CD collection again. It’s all very old school in the age of iPods, I am sure, but…it’s nice to just pop in a CD and let it all play.

☆彡 No, I’m not offended by that Volkswagen commercial. Non-Jamaicans speak patois all the time, and say random things that they think Jamaicans say all the time. It’s not something most Jamaicans are infuriated over. It’s just typical “Yankee” antics, and most will laugh at it or consider it flattery. That’s about it. In my opinion, we were portrayed in a good light. Most shows and sketches portray Jamaicans as really relaxed and easygoing individuals. What are we going to say? “Stop making us look happy!” I promise that all that anger is coming from politically correct Americans. As usual.

★彡 Mark and I approaching ten years together, and we have no idea what to do. We’ve been throwing around the idea of a proper wedding ceremony, but the moment we take out a pen and paper to start planning we feel…bleh. We don’t even plan parties, better yet attend any. How are we supposed to plan a wedding? Honestly, I’m leaning more towards a proper honeymoon — one overseas, if possible at all. Yeah, that would be sweet. Seeing how things look now, though, we’ll have to push that to our wedding anniversary rather than our first-day-of-being-in-an-official-relationship anniversary. For that one, I think we’ll just stay home and do fun things. Butt things. I’m joking about the butt things. We don’t do butt things.

☆彡 A moment of silence for the people who have known me since time immemorial, yet they still try to change the aspects of me that have not changed since they first met me. May whatever god(s) you pray to bless you with brain cells.

★彡 If you ask a dumb question, I have to give a sarcastic answer. It’s automatic. I can’t stop it. And by dumb question I don’t mean: “I don’t know how to do this. Can you help?” No question like that is ever dumb. If you don’t understand something and I do, please ask me. I’ll be happy to help. But questions like “Would it hurt you to smile more?” or “Are you too good to sit with us?” will always get a response along the lines of: “Yes, if I smile my face will split in half and I’ll die,” or “Well, I’ll have to check my meter. Chances are my goodness will be off the charts, and I won’t be able to sit with you now or ever.” Things like that.

☆彡 I found out today that it is okay to lie in Buddhism. As long as the lie is to keep peace or prevent someone from facing harm, it is considered an honorable lie.  For example, people who lied during World War II to keep Jewish families safe. Those are definitely good and honorable lies. So…I can understand that. Obviously, though, doing terrible things to a person and lying is never okay. Even if people will say things like “I lied about deceiving you to spare you pain” or “I stole because I needed it badly”. Not okay.

I’m off!

I’m working on a project that is probably too ambitious for someone as inconsistent as I am, but it’s fun. It revolves around anachronism. Just thinking about it makes me extremely excited. I haven’t started a project this large since…high school, maybe? It’s just been Mythos and me for a very long time. And random short stories for writing contests. But that’s about it.

I hope to post some things related to that project soon.

057: C.R.E.A.M.

tumblr_lqd8ja2SaY1qgk2bfo1_500

☆彡 I am so obsessed with strawberries. Even when I’m not in the mood for anything sweet, I will ogle at strawberries for hours at a time. Then there is strawberry shortcake, strawberry ice-cream, strawberries with whip cream, chocolate-coated ice cream, and even strawberry cheesecake. sigh Well, what’s the point in being an adult if I can’t do whatever I want, right? Tomorrow, I am buying strawberries! It being in pastry form is not really important. Cream and sugar are just supplements to the main attraction–glorious strawberries. Okay, I’ll stop talking about strawberries…for now.

★彡 Wu-Tang Clan is making a new album. I don’t know even know how to handle besides playing their songs on regular rotations until it gets here. Yes. Good.

☆彡 When I start cleaning everything meticulously, it’s both a good and bad thing. The bad thing is that I am either very distressed or very furious. The good thing is that I am working myself out of it in a productive fashion. Of course, the best thing is when it’s all over, all is clean and I feel 100% better. I guess I understand now how Link feels when he’s frustrated, and he just starts taking a bath. It’s like…cleansing the bad things away.

★彡 I finally got past Caius, and I am on my way to meet Snow…and his awesome hair. I must admit, I am growing rather fond of Final Fantasy XIII-2. I daresay I enjoy it more than Final Fantasy XIII itself. It is not as predictable, and even the things that are predictable are so heartbreaking that I don’t want it to happen. I have a strong feeling that Serah may meet the same fate as Yeul (or Yeuls), but I really hope that I am wrong. I adore Serah. The thought of anything happening to her or her sister destroys me. Ugh. Let’s hope not.

☆彡  I love Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Prada a lot. Also, there is one Gucci purse I’ve loved for years, but I’m not a big fan of Gucci handbags…or Gucci itself. Just this one handbag. Those are the things I would splurge on if I ever hit the jackpot or something. Otherwise, no. Most name brands are too ridiculous for me. By the way, Prada designed clothes for Appleseed: Deus Ex Machina and had FFXIII characters style for some of their clothing. I feel like I need to constantly remind the world of this because it’s really cool to me. (LOL)

★彡 Mark is getting into Skyrim. I should definitely be worried.

☆彡 I was called a “blerd” today. Blerd. That’s…charming.

★彡 By the way, “ice-breakers” are the worst. Outside of blogs like this where I aim to track my mental state and activities, or social networks where I am expected to share my insights, I don’t like to talk about myself. I don’t want to stand in front of a room of people and act like my life is so unique. It’s not. Even the things that people tend to react strongly to like my drawing abilities, introversion, and hobbies are not unique at all. There are plenty of introverted black women who like to draw and play video games and watch Star Trek if you look in the right places. I just don’t like to listen to redundant stories about people’s lives, and I believe that whatever I say is redundant enough that people shouldn’t be expected to listen to it…unless, of course, they choose to listen to it by bringing themselves to places like my blog or social network sites. Otherwise, no. I guess when it comes to speaking to others, I feel like Gackt. He believes that when people ask him about his life, he is obligated to say something funny or interesting to make them laugh. I really understand that feeling. When someone asks me about my personal life, I don’t believe they really care about my well being. They just want to be entertained. So, I entertain them…even if they don’t really get my humor.

☆彡 People get really offended when I say I don’t like to be touched, but what is there to get angry about? Am I suppose to say: “Man, when people touch me it just makes my day.” That’s just creepy and disgusting. Like…who just sits around waiting for strangers to feel on them? I’m not saying touching in general is gross. If you’re close to someone then touching can be very rewarding, but I’m not going to act like it’s okay for people I’m not even cool with to touch me. Just no. Don’t. I don’t know where your hands have been, and I’m not on good enough terms with you to shrug off gross habits you may have.

★彡 I really love dragons, and I’ll find any excuse to put a dragon in a story. It could be a story about a group of friends walking around a park and then DRAGONS. FUCKING DRAGONS EVERYWHERE. Yes. That is a good story.

☆彡 Guys…Pyramid Head is a murdering, necrophiliac rapist. Can we please stop romanticizing him? Next we’re going to start saying that Abstract Daddy is just misunderstood, and then I’m going to have to kick someone.

★彡 I have this annoying habit of stopping others mid-conversation to question them about a word they used that I haven’t heard before. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be rude. I’m just very eager to understand new vocabulary words. >_<

 

…I should conclude my entries with something interesting like a quote or something. I’ll see.

056: A Stranger

☆彡 With the recent Berserk manga updates and my finally being able to watch the movies, I’m pretty happy right now. *_*

★彡 “Breath of Life” came on during Return of the King, and the subtitles read, “[Angelic Vocalizing]”. I detect no lies in that statement.

☆彡 I believe the iron throne belongs to Daenerys, and no one can change my mind. I may change on my own, mind you, but others cannot change it.

★彡 After I wash my hair and blow dry it, I usually go from Vegeta to Temari or Vegeta to Shikamaru. Today, I’m Shikamaru until I have the energy to style it.  Mark believes my personality is almost identical to Shikamaru and he seems to like his hairstyle better, so I’ll stick to it for a while longer. For those who don’t speak Naruto, here you are: Temari to the left, and Shikamaru to the right.

☆彡 Gamestop took our broken XBox 360 for $87 in-store credit. I was expecting like $10 credit for it. Good stuff. I got The Witcher 2 and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Mark got Crackdown 2, three Mass Effect DLCs, and one Mass Effect theme. We still have like $7 left, so we may put that towards a reservation or something. It all depends.

★彡 Speaking of games:

  • The Witcher 2: It is more challenging than the first. Fun, but challenging. Perhaps I am out of practice.
  • Final Fantasy XIII-2: Caius is pissing me off. I hate regen (unless I’m using it…then it’s awesome). *sigh* It doesn’t help that no one in my party learned Cura yet, so it’s time to go work on that. Then it’s on!
  • Lair of the Shadow Broker: It’s always good to see Liara again. We just left Azure Hotel. Yeah…I’m still shaking my head the level of fetishization the asaris get. I sometimes feel bad for them. It must be annoying to have these creepy men and women constantly letting you know that they want to have sex with you.

I plan to play more Lair of the Shadow Broker after this and then some The Witcher 2. I’m not looking forward to grinding in FFXIII-2 (lazy), but…I’ll work on it. *sigh*

☆彡 Distant Worlds is coming around again, and I have to save up at least $200 to get there. I’m not giving up. Regardless of how far I must travel, I am attending a video game symphony this year. That is my promise to myself!

★彡 Random (more like typical) Conversation:

  • Person: “Are you okay?”
  • Me: “Yes.”
  • P: “Are you sure?”
  • M: “Yes.”
  • P: “You don’t look okay.”
  • M: “I’m fine.”
  • P: “Alright.”
  • M: “…”
  • P: “You know, you can always talk to me if you have a problem.”
  • M: “Thank you. I will.”
  • P: “…”
  • M: “…”
  • P: “I know how it feels to want to be alone. Ten years ago, I got divorced–
  • M: “OH MY FUCKING GOD.”

☆彡 Rocky road ice cream will be the death of me. That and cream soda…red cream soda to be more specific. *sigh* Sweet death.

★彡 I don’t know what else to post, so I’m going to post this song “A Stranger” from A Perfect Circle. I’ve become incredibly addicted to it. A Perfect Circle has this strange way of perfectly verbalizing the things I cannot explain eloquently.

 

Cast the calming apple
Up and over satellites
To draw out the timid wild one,
To convince you it’s alright.
And I listen for the whisper
Of your sweet insanity ,
While I formulate

Denials of your affect on me.

You’re a stranger,
So what do I care?
You vanished today.
Not the first time, I hear,
Or the last.

What am I to do with all this silence?
Shy away, shy away, phantom.
Run away, terrified child.
Won’t you move away you, fucking tornado.
I’m better off without you
Tearing my world down.

Lovely~ I’m also in love with their website right now. Going to pretend I’m underwater and read their lyrics. *vanishes*
