082: Não Chora Menina

tumblr_mq27ztzjxI1rjcfxro1_250

“Close my shark , human.”

★彡 I beat Dragon Age 2 a few days ago. I was a warrior the first time around, so I am going to replay as a mage. That should make the plot a lot more interesting. Not that replaying really matters. Anders is still going to ruin my life again…with his anger-induced possessions and love of cats and unshaven pony-tailed face. Ugh, fuck off, Anders.

☆彡 *slowly teaches Mark to stop asking my permission for everything* (LOL)

Seriously, nothing gives me joy like Mark buying things and going places without seeking my approval first. Yes, I understand that his heart is in the right place, but…he’s 28 years old. It’s kind of depressing for a 28 year old to have to get permission from a 26 year old to do shit, you know? I don’t even let 60 year olds tell me what to do better yet people younger than me. Then again, I am the type of person who hates being ordered around (unless I’m getting paid to or I have immense respect for the person giving orders), so I value independence and personal space a lot. I never want to be in a position where I am forced to strip someone of independence and space every human being deserves. Oh well. He will learn. He is learning. That’s good enough for now.

★彡 Glad to see that Rey Mysterio is back. Sadly, that’s pretty much all I care about in WWE right now.

☆彡 I don’t know why I wait until December to hang up lights. I’m just going to string them around my bedroom and leave them there all year. Also, I have yet to own a tree that wasn’t green, so I’m going to get a blue or white tree this year.

★彡 Man, the ASOIAF fans who haven’t read the books yet are in for several headfucks next season. The purple wedding alone is going to be *in Zack Ryder’s voice* siiiiiiiick (…wait….what am I doing? I hate Zack Ryder). Anyway, just a few more months, ASOIAF fandom. Almost there.

☆彡 My blowdryer decided to explode on me and then make a Silent Hill-esque siren noise afterwards. That wasn’t terrifying at all. Luckily, there was no fire. It was just loud and smoky. 

★彡 I plan to get A Link Between Worlds very soon. I haven’t gotten around to it because I have a pile of books on my desk, and I’ve been going through them at breakneck speed. Finally. I should be all caught up within the next week or so…book-wise anyway. My gaming pile is still pretty pathetic.

☆彡 The worst feeling in the world is when you catch yourself doing something despicable and suddenly you question everything about yourself. I am by no means a goody-two shoes. My need to constantly explore new things is to blame for most of that. But there are definitely some lines I never cross, particularly lines that involve hurting others. I can live with hurting myself but not others. The truth is that I am a completely different person when I am in the middle of a panic attack. While I am in that mode, self-preservation is my only priority. Everything and everyone else stops mattering. That doesn’t change the fact that selfish is selfish. I don’t believe for a second that this part of me is impossible change. I just…need to put myself in panic-inducing situations until I learn to have complete control of myself during them. Until then, I am a dumb loser during 50% of my life. Whomp-whomp.

★彡 The things I am hearing about the XBox One are…tragic. The XBox 360 has been so pleasant for me that I hoped that the XBox One would be a worthy upgrade of it. Meh. I guess it is high time I got back to Sony anyway. The last time I owned a Sony console was back in 2004 or so when my PS2 broke. I have nothing against Sony. XBox just had a better selection of games these past few years, and games that were once Sony exclusives became multiplatform. This time around there are important-ass exclusives like Drakengard 3, Final Fantasy XV, and Kingdom Hearts 3 that I have to look out for. Also, there are some old Sony exclusive titles like Chrono Cross and a few Final Fantasy titles that I would love to download. So, a Playstation 4 is a definite for me. It’s just a matter of when I save up $400.

☆彡 The thing I hate most about my stories is that my characters have so much potential, yet they always end up the same one-dimensional carbon copy of the last character. I don’t spend enough time really fleshing them out. It’s easy to say: “this one is laid-back” or “this one is energetic”, but actually putting details into a character like pet peeves, addictions, allergies, fruitless dreams, poignant memories–that takes real effort. Effort I seldom give. For now, I am going to stop working on plots and drawings, and start working on those little things. I also need to work on more characters outside the main characters. Supporting characters don’t get enough credit for the life they give to stories. They are just that: support. I need to remember this! Well, I’m not going to worry too much about NaNoWriMo at this point. It is damn near impossible to meet the word count goal so late in the game, and my head isn’t really into it this year. I just want to crack open my Mythos binder and contribute more to it than fancy costumes. LOL

★彡 It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia gives me life. I have never laughed so hard in my life.

☆彡 I am currently working on a way to modify my bo staff. I’m in the sketching and tossing crumpled paper across the room phase right now. Not fun…but turning my bo staff into a Final Fantasy like weapon is going to be sweeeet. I thought about turning it into a lance, but as often as that thing topples over I don’t think it’s a good idea to add a blade to the end of it. LOL. I’m just going to stick with a basic staff. Right now I am set on something between Yuna’s starting staff and her Nirvana staff. I want to name my staff “Phantasmagoria”…because it’s my favorite word. Yes, I know I’m a colossal loser. Leave me alone. 😐

★彡 I’m glad that Nier is finally getting the respect it deserves. Thanks Game Informer for pointing out what a masterpiece it is.

Also, fuck what the Nier haters said.

bending

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and please be careful if you participate in Black Friday.

080: Hand to Hand

Same.

☆彡 Everything is nice and creepy in time for Halloween. Fufufu~ I love me some Gravelord Nito. Actually, all of the major bosses of Dark Souls are beautiful to me–especially Nito, Quelaag, and Ornstein. I cannot understand why I love a game I am so terrible at…but it happens. While on the topic of Halloween, my plan is to pretty much watch horror movies while wearing something lame and eating candy. I’ll try to leave some for the trick-or-treaters. I could always turn off all the lights and pretend no one is home so I can keep all the candy for myself. I know, I know. I am a terrible.

★彡 Mark showed me something really cool the other day. Sega remade the Sega Genesis and stored 80 games in it. But that’s not the coolest part. That part that made us both scream is its ability to play Sega Genesis cartridges. We have some SG games in storage right now that we would love to play, so that is extremely awesome. I am pretty sure if they remake the Super Nintendo I will freak out. Naturally, I will embarrass myself here when that day comes. Capslock, gifs, bold lettering, and all.

☆彡 It’s ironic to me that females get shit for being “fake geeks” when the biggest impersonators I have ever met in my life were males. Here is the thing about females who love things considered “geeky”. They are willing to endure a lot of harassment for the sake of those things. That’s not to say that guys do not love their fandoms as much as girls or that some girls do not lie about their interests to get praise, but I believe that a person who braves negative feedback in order to do something they have a strong passion for are in it for the right reasons.

★彡 I still haven’t read “The Witcher: Time of Contempt”. It has nothing to do with my lacking an urgency to read it. It’s more about funds and my willing to delay buying it in order to acquire more important things. My poor cat has been scratching at the same demolished scratching board for weeks. I would love to at least get him a new one. Especially now that he has turned our carpet into his new scratching board…which I loathe. So, all I can say is soon. I do miss Geralt terribly. With The Witcher 3 being so far away and the grim possibility of not having a PS4 to play it on for eons after its release, “Time of Contempt” is pretty much all the exposure I will have of him for a good while. That sucks. I miss my beautiful white wolf. D:

☆彡My fascination with Wales has gone from admiration to shameless adoration. Seriously, have you seen their flag? Bad. Ass. I will not say they are a flawless country. I am sure both their past and present has its deal of controversy; however, I am still interested in learning more about Welsh history and its culture. I would obviously love to visit one day too. Also, kind of off topic, but I am set on giving my future children a name of Welsh origin. I’M GOING TOO FAR. I KNOW. But on a serious note, Welsh names are the coolest. It’s no wonder that so many fantasy stories rely on Welsh names for their characters. Vaughn has been one of my favorite names since the dawn of time, and I recently learned that it is of Welsh origin. So…that’s awesome. If I ever have a daughter, her name will be Zelda, but that is the only name I am set on. When it comes to daughters beyond Zelda and sons, I will turn to Welsh names. First, though, I have to convince Mark that we should not name our first son Felix. He just won’t budge on that name. It is killing me. LOL. Coming to an agreement on a boy name always turns into a drawn out debate, but the girl names come easy for us. We love Zelda. We love Elsa. We loved Meredith for ages (which happens to be Welsh for “sea lord”. How cool is that? OwO). Let’s hope we have plenty of girls then. Honestly, we are still going back and forth about reproduction being a good idea in the first place. It’s just a lot of stress we know we cannot handle right now. I am sure if we were living under better circumstances we would jump at the opportunity to raise a little human being, but the time is not right. It rarely is. Anyway, where was I? Ah, yes. Wales. I must go there. Good names, cool flag, nice food, castles aplenty, etc, blah blah blah.

★彡 It’s a bit ridiculous that I have soundtracks for games and animes I’ve never seen before. For example, I am obsessed with my Earth Girl Arjuna and Dream Drop Distance CDs yet I haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying either. I guess it doesn’t matter. Good music is good music. Also, I’ve been a fan of Yoko Shimomura and Yoko Kanno long enough to snatch up anything they release without giving a damn about the projects they belong to. The same goes with anything Masashi Hamauzu, Nobuo Uematsu, Yasanori Mitsuda, Go Shiina, and Keiichi Okabe touches. They could sneeze on an album at this point and I will snatch it up like it was going out of style.

☆彡 Writing about Odin makes me uncomfortable at times because I spent so much time writing about him as a child. To have to turn around now and write about him as an adult who often indulges in “adult” things…I can’t describe how it makes me feel. It’s probably the way many people felt when they saw Miley Cyrus twerking. Like, that’s Hannah Montana. There is just no forgetting that. LOL. Anyway, authors have written about more awkward things, so I shouldn’t complain. It’s fine. At least no one is twerking. Not yet. Okay, no one is ever going to twerk. It would be kind of funny though to have all the dragons come together and form a twerk team. Their twerking would just destroy cities and no one would care.

★彡 OH MY FUCKING GOODNESS THIS SONG THO

YOU THINK THIS A MOTHERFUCKING GAME???!!
(Well, Dream Drop Distance is a game, but you know what I mean.)

☆彡 If someone is going through a really shitty ordeal, you are not being a precious pure knight by telling him/her to get over it and be happy. All you’re doing is trivializing whatever (s)he is going through by telling him/her that it can be magically erased by smiling and pretending it didn’t happen. Sure, it’s not healthy to be angry for all of your life but if you go through something terrible and you just want scream or punch a wall then what’s the problem? Seriously, congrats on being a special snowflake who never copes with anger. You can go shit rainbows somewhere else without pestering us lowly mortals who have the nerves to experience wrath from time to time.

★彡 I don’t really know how I feel about John Cena coming back. I mean…he’s coming back to face Alberto Del Rio of all wrestlers. Alberto is a terrific athlete, but him in a feud with Cena just seems boring. He was just in a feud with Van Dam like two seconds ago. Then again, who else is John Cena going to fight? The biggest superstars aside from him are pretty much Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton, and they’re still in their neverending battle for WWE championship. So…I don’t know. Maybe he came back at the wrong time. I’m sure a couple of months down the line a more reasonable rival would have been waiting. *sigh* Oh well. I know Cena gets a lot of hate but I like him. It’s always good to see him back in the ring, being dorky and cheesy. LOL. If anyone should headline in the near future it should be HHH. I know it’s unlikely with his whole best-for-business-man thing but…man…HHH against Big Show would be an interesting rivalry to witness.

By the way, I haven’t seen Princess AJ around recently. I hope she’s all right. 😦

☆彡 I cannot handle anyone who does the prison pose in pictures. I always end up laughing.

★彡 5,000 years later I am still in disbelief that I have an autographed action figure of Odo. I really love Odo. There are countless Star Trek characters out there I consider loveable but I love him most. Flawless shapeshifter~ The only ones that really rival Odo in terms of my adoration for them are Tuvok, Spock, Worf, Kira, and Paris. Yeah…that’s about it. I pretty much have no fondness for anyone on Enterprise. I didn’t mind the show. There was just…no connection there. D:

☆彡 I was told that I had an evil laugh recently. I can’t even disagree. It gets to 90’s anime villain  levels at times.

★彡 Okay, I am pretty much set on getting Erick Rowan’s mask for Halloween. Honestly, I’ll find any excuse to get that mask. It is awesome.

wyatt_playlist_314

Alright, I’m gonna work on writing. That’s pretty much taking up all of my time since ideas come constantly these days. Let’s see how far this goes…before I wind up staring at a blank word document and crying into bowls of ramen. LOL

Happy 19 Days ‘Til Halloween! (( ^ w ^ ))

079: Inis Sui

Wukong.full.1576880

I would like to offer a gold ribbon to the person who put Sun Wukong and a dragon together…because it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life.

 

★彡 I AM SO EMOTIONAL ABOUT THAT SEASON FINALE OF FREE! AND RIN CRYING ABOUT WANTING TO SWIM WITH HARU, MAKOTO, AND NAGISA AGAIN AND REI BEING A SWEETHEART AND GIVING UP HIS PLACE ON THE TEAM TO MAKE RIN SWIM AND THAT WHOLE RELAY WHERE EVERYONE WAS FREE AND EVEN THOUGH THEY ALL GOT DISQUALIFIED THEY WERE LIKE “WHO GIVES A FUCK WE GOT TO SWIM WITH RIN AGAIN” AND THEN EVERYONE IS PRACTICING TOGETHER. MY TEARS ARE FLOWING FREELY~

tumblr_mtpb5xcqMJ1s2kirpo2_500

(Okay, I’m done. Sorry.)

☆彡 I’m really happy for Mark! He’s been trying to get hired by Books-A-Million for years, and it finally happened! I am worried about him taking up two jobs at once, but he insisted that he could handle it. So…I’ll stop raining on his parade with my worrywart tendencies. LOL. Anyway, I just want to say congratulations to mai precious, kawaii husbando~ He kicked a lot of ass during that interview. They pretty much hired him on the spot! I’m so proud of him! :’)

★彡 Watamote was… a roller coaster. I left it feeling the same way I did when I ended Welcome to the NHK. Bittersweet might be the correct term. Realistically, Tomoko is not going to get a magical cure for her social anxiety, and if anything she has become worse over the course of the anime. This is a lot like real life. It is a relief to find a series that does not treat a mental illness like something an individual can shrug off.

☆彡 It disturbs me that some people are comfortable harming others based on nothing more than the assumptions they make. I guess it bothers me so much because (A)predatory behavior sickens me, and (B)I need indisputable evidence before altering another human being’s life. Assumptions, like emotions and opinions, are temporary. The same cannot be said for actions. Even if your emotions and opinions about an action changes, the action itself remains. That is why I cannot do something permanent based on something temporary…and it bothers me that anyone can attempt to rationalize altering someone’s life for the worst based on a feeling or opinion.

★彡 I can’t really say much about Shingeki no Kyojin since I’ve read the manga past the point of the season finale; therefore, I’m not surprised by the plot. I can only marvel at the animation, music, and changes made for the anime at this point. That does not take away from its quality though. It is still a very good anime and I am still looking forward to the second season.

☆彡 I made a pact with myself to never go more than a month without bibimbap. It’s been about 3-4 months since I last had it, and…that’s just wrong. Going without your favorite dish for more than a month is just wrong.

★彡 I have too many thoughts about the Breaking Bad finale to say anything…aside from it was perfect. Beyond that, too many thoughts. I want to watch the entire series over again in one sitting just to watch how it all comes together. Soon.

☆彡 In order to fully map out the fauna race in Mythos, I have to invest in some biology books. The perfect book to really get to work on the fauna race costs $50 though…so I’m pretty sad about that. LOL. I am sure there are cheaper alternatives, but I will not settle for anything else. This book is detailed, it has accurate drawings of different species, and it is organized flawlessly. So, I won’t settle. I may have to sacrifice a few games on my wishlist to obtain it, but it will be worth it. Anyway, I am working on Elda as a dragoon. Yay! I’ve been waiting to get to this part of the story for a while. It’s just taking forever to get Odin to transform. >_<

★彡 I cannot wait to get M.I.A’s “Matangi” album.  I see so many nights of terrible dancing waiting for me. I’m excited.

☆彡 Me: “Ugh, I can’t to do this. It’s so hard. I really can’t do this– *plays “Dracarys* –FUUUUUCK LET’S DO THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW I’M NOT EVEN CONCERNED.”

It is exactly like that.

★彡 I didn’t realize how much I loved dragons until I went through my chest of old toys and found a shitload of dragon figures. That’s always cool–reigniting old flames. I even found this kickass dragon figurine that Todd MacFarlane made ages ago. The dragon is supposed to be perched on a roof, but I lost the roof. The dragon is in tact though so I’m happy. Obviously, if you don’t like dragons you can get the fuck out of my face. Yeah, you knew that was coming.

 

And I have nothing to say about the government shutdown because it is foolish. Bye.

072: I Go Humble

tumblr_mofu9h5Fyo1qj4b9to1_500

☆彡 It’s always fun being told by others what I prioritize in my own life. You know, because someone who wears the same $20 beat up sneakers for years is really bothered by the idea of not having $500 high-fashion shoes. I think what I’m going to do with people like that is find some random thing they’re not even interested in, and shame them for not being interested in it. Just to show them how moronic their mentality is. Then when they look really confused and point out that they’re not even interested in the thing I’m shaming them for not being interested in, I’ll hand them a card that says: “Congrats! You finally get it! It only took 500 years!”

★彡 Quick reviews of movies I saw recently: Mama was a disappointment, Cloud Atlas was as interesting as it was complex, Teddy Bear is everything I hope to find in an independent film, and Dancer in the Dark was depressing. I’m also getting into Welcome to the NHK and Revolutionary Girl Utena. Not movies, I know, but I still love them both. I will start on Steins;Gate soon. I saw the last Berserk movie and I am officially done with the eclipse and even everything pre-eclipse. So…yeah…if it’s Berserk and it’s not related to the Millennium Falcon arc and beyond then I don’t want to watch or read it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to think about that third film and weep.

☆彡 Shoutout to Daniel for letting me know that Fable 3 was free with XBox Live Gold. I know for a fact that I would have missed out on that because I always do.

★彡 I burned water today. I should get a sticker or something for that.

☆彡 I wish I had a dollar for everytime someone played on the fact that I don’t speak much by telling me that I talk too much. 

★彡 So, my 3DS is now a portable game system, camera, sketchbook, diary, pedometer, and mp3 player. It’s basically my life. Oh, and I watch Netflix on it if I’m stuck somewhere lame that happens to have wifi. So…it’s safe to say that I’m attached to it. Still deciding what to name it though. I’m slightly set on Utena.

☆彡 The same people who pressure me to “come out of my shell” are the same ones who judge me relentlessly when I do. It really sickens me that some individuals are so eager to be hateful that they will drag individuals out of whatever environment they enjoy just to hurt them. I will never understand why some humans are so amazing that it fills me with happiness for days, and others are such absolute shit that it makes me wish I didn’t have to live on this planet with them. There never seems to be an in-between.

★彡 I really have nothing to say about the Paula Deen ordeal. Racists are foolish and they’re never saying shit.

☆彡 *casually puts “Giant”, “Black Ocean”, and “Leave Me Alone” by Imeruat on repeat until the end of time*

★彡 Thursday, before Mark left for his trip, I cried nonstop. It was a mess. Seriously, we were eating dinner and then out of the blue I started sobbing and eating at the same time. Not cute. I promise. Then when he was actually gone, I had a meltdown–just crying and crying and crying all of Friday. Then around Friday night, I stopped crying and I’ve been pretty calm since then. Actually, on Saturday he kept sending me messages to see if I was okay and I had to tell him: “YES. I’M FINE. PLEASE GO ENJOY YOUR TRIP AND LET ME WATCH ANIME.” LOL

…But I really miss him. I’m sure I shut off my emotions because I didn’t want to spend this entire time crying, but the moment I see him again, I’ll probably cry again. He’s the Guts to my Caska. We are just…nauseatingly inseparable. Even on the phone, we both talked about how strange it feels. It’s that feeling I get when I leave the house and I left something important behind. I’m likely to spend the entire day dwelling on it not being there with me. It just feels really unsettling…and it kind of makes everything less enjoyable as a result. Bah, getting teary eyed. I’m going to move on to something else…

☆彡 I can watch this video for hours. It’s so perfect:

★彡 On one hand, I believe everyone has the right to be angry and frustrated sometimes. On the other hand, I don’t believe I have the right to be angry and frustrated at all.

☆彡 It disturbs me that bullying a person can become such a cultural norm that those who don’t bully them are encouraged to. After I told someone that I don’t think it’s right to body shame Kim Kardashian (not that she needs a reason to gain weight but…you imbeciles making fun of her do understand how pregnancy works, right?), she told me: “Kim Kardashian is a piece of shit. You shouldn’t feel bad about making fun of her.” …Really? And what are you for making fun of a pregnant woman? Not a piece of shit?

★彡 The Sonic The Hedgehog 2 OST gives me life.

☆彡 Bjork’s best album, for me, was definitely Homogenic…actually…Debut. No. Vespertine. FUCK.

★彡 The following video game characters are ruining my life:

tumblr_mo42f5O1Du1rwibyso1_500 tumblr_mofl4kq2yN1stedbqo1_500 tumblr_moqgbn74v91r3xm9no1_500

In other news, Emilia Clarke is still ruining my life. Every time I see a picture of her, my reaction is pretty much: “Can you not?”

☆彡 Don’t embarrass yourself by threatening to terminate your relationship with me if I don’t do what you want. If you’re the type of person who constantly tries to control me, there is a 100% chance that I’ve been waiting for you to get lost long before you considered the thought.

★彡 I like having clean hair, but I hate washing my hair and conditioning my hair and letting it sit for so many minutes and then washing it again and then drying it and then straightening it. It’s like…two damn hours just to get my hair clean and manageable. That shit gets me heated. Don’t even tell me to go to the salon because I cannot put into words how much I hate other people touching me. So, I don’t do salons and massage parlors or wherever else I have to pay someone to make me uncomfortable. *sigh*

☆彡 “Santi-U” scares me, yet I listen to it constantly. Why?

Well, I can bitch and moan all I want but I have to wash my hair. Stat. So, I’m going to go do that. Perhaps two hours is enough time to come to a decision about getting Nights: Into Dreams on XBox Live. Because I’ve been thinking about it for such a long time. Perhaps I’ll spend my other 400 points on Fable 3 shit like new hairstyles and dog breeds. OR I can get another game. Hmm…okay, sure. Why not.

066: Proton

tumblr_mgo73qnRVP1s17542o1_500

★彡 Okay, Tuvok, stop being perfect.

☆彡 I know I already made a big deal about this, but DRAKENGARD 3. Also going back to a previous entry, if Drakengard is full of sick fucks and NieR is full of dying people and the team of both games will be working on Drakengard 3 then will I run into sick fucks who all die? Huh… Something to prepare myself for. Also, how in the fresh hell am I going to get a Playstation 3 to play it?

★彡 I discovered Paint Tool Sai, but my drawing tablet is still kaput and coloring with my mouse is not happening. Yay! I’ll just study some more tutorials for now. Also, the marker tool in Paint Tool Sai is perfect! I really want to color my stuff with it…

☆彡 Wow, Data is playing this game and it is three layers of The Legend of Zelda juxtaposed on this grid. I see what you did there, Star Trek. Also, “USS Yamato” and a group of people called “Nausicaans”? Do I sense possible anime fans on the Star Trek team? That is actually really cool–sharing mutual interests with the creators behind one of my interests.

★彡 The truth is that I have zero patience for redundancy, and if something more interesting comes along I will likely move towards it. This is true for everything from school to relationships. Of course, I should define what redundancy means to me since it can vary from person to person. I am fine with doing the same thing repeatedly so long as I am given the freedom to use my own “system” of handling it. For example, writing. Writing is very redundant. You press some buttons or write some words, move to the page, repeat. However, the fact that I can write about anything I want and in any fashion I want makes me enjoy writing. If someone told me that I had to write about a piece of gum every single day–and nothing more than this piece of gum–then I will move on to something else. Socially, I carry this same attitude. I enjoy socializing with people who can discuss a large variety of subjects without bringing them back to the same point (“Let’s talk about TV followed by trucks” “Let’s talk about TV followed by trucks” “Let’s talk about trucks followed by trucks”). If I am stuck with a person who is incapable of expanding beyond a tiny range of topics, I will instantly become uninterested. In short, I bore easily. I don’t really have the patience to deal with anything/anyone that I cannot extract information or inspiration from. This topic reminds me of J.R.R. Tolkien’s quote: “I warn you, if you bore meI shall take my revenge.” Just replace “revenge” with “leave” and this quote becomes extremely true for me…because I will literally leave anything that is too tiresome for me. (Let us classify this one under both ADD and INTJ problems)

☆彡 I am determined to tackle two recipes this week: Che Chuoi (sweet soup composed of banana, tapioca pearls, and coconut milk) and Goi Cuon (Vietnamese cold spring rolls) with peanut sauce. I am a complete klutz when it comes to Asian recipes, though, so I really have to do my best to not screw this up. I still have moments of silence for the sushi I tried to make last year.

★彡 Our ten year anniversary is in exactly one week, and Mark’s birthday is three days after….and I have no idea what to do.

Yikes

Well, I know I’m taking Mark to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation. That’s a definite. Other than that, I don’t know. I guess we can chill and eat steak and watch movies or something. LOL. It worries me how indifferent we are sometimes…but then we become indifferent about being indifferent, so…

☆彡 (1)Atlas Shrugged is a fictional book. Any person using it as some type of tool to solve real world problems is silly. (2)Ayn Rand was not perfect and neither was Atlas Shrugged. Being a fan of Ayn Rand and/or Atlas Shrugged is not a declaration of their perfection. (3)Many Atlas Shrugged fans were fans of the book before it became some type of right-wing manifesto or before they knew it became some type of right-wing manifesto. Basically, enjoying Atlas Shrugged =/= conservative right-wing affiliation. (4)Believe it or not, it is possible to read a book and not agree with the actions or mentality of the characters. If one reads Darkly Dreaming Dexter, is (s)he supporting murder to rid society of dangerous individuals? If one reads A Game of Thrones, is (s)he supporting the use of deception, sex, and violence to gain power? I don’t agree with many of the characters in this book, and I didn’t finish the book with a: “Wow, I must use this book to shape my own life” mentality. It’s just a story. It’s about people I don’t relate to in a society that doesn’t exist with conflicts I may never have to face. It’s very different from my world. That is what makes it interesting. What I mean to say is that I like books that make me think, and Atlas Shrugged makes me think. I have learned that digging into the personal life of an author/artist is not always a good idea. It adds filters that should not be used when viewing a story for what it is–just as story.

★彡 I’m either going to replay Twilight Princess or Tales of Symphonia this weekend. More than likely, Tales of Symphonia. I have yet to play the sequel, so maybe this replay will be a good way to segue into it.

☆彡 Costco is selling that Samsung Galaxy Note for $100 less than other places. Now I just need to pull $400 out of nowhere to get it!

★彡 Link and I have a mutual need to annoy the hell out of one another. I don’t expect anyone to understand our relationship, but after a long day of provoking we get as affectionate as a detached person like me can get with a detached animal like a cat, and that means a lot to me. I love my furry buddy. TT____TT

☆彡 Mark and I found a book on how to be a pimp in the self-help section of Barnes and Noble. That was great.

Alright, I’m out of things to add.

I can’t wait until tomorrow. I get to finish the second season of Game of Thrones, finally! There are some other good things happening tomorrow, too, so I am pretty excited. I should probably calm my tits though. Getting overly excited about things makes me way to antsy before the actual exciting event happens. 😄

I’ll end this entry with more Tuvok because I never get tired of his sassy expressions.
