December 21, 2006

Well, on Dec 19th was Fujino Shizuru b-day.

And since I'm a fan, so I guess I can wish an anime character a happy birthday. LOL

I actually wrote something for it, and well, only got half of it done, so I'll post that whenever I get it done. I'm not all that concern about it.

Saturday is reunion. I wasn't gonna go, but then my friends are going so I guess I can make it, it'll be good to see some of the old faces again, even though I was only with them till 10th grade. Hopefully it won't get boring, cause the simple fact that I spent my formative year somewhere completely different than they were would make a huge diff in our thought process, and also taste in things. Besides, how many gonna have the same interest as I do. I mean come on, who's gonna be watching anime I like do. Well, the one that does won't be able to make it. Kinda sad.

I wanna go see Eragon, but still couldn't make it there yet. I'll try next week, maybe my friend will go with me.

December 16, 2006

Got new toy today.

I got a Seagate external hard drive today. It was 160gb, a pretty good size, I actually went looking for another model, but they didn't have it and this one was on sale so I got it. It'll still plenty enough for all my crap, so I didn't fret over it. While I was there I was looking at some laptop too. I want a Vaio, but they are kinda expensive comparing to other brand, so I might end up with an HP, or Accer.. I guess between those, I'll get HP. I don't know, I just feel like it.

I'm getting DSL for the store too, cause I spend all my day there, so I'd like something to kill time while I religuish the TV to my aunt or my mom. Otherwise I'll monopolize the damn thing till sundown. LOL. Can you imagine two old people watching anime with me all day cause they didn't have a choice. I don't think my mother mind too much, except she couldn't understand what they were saying.

Anyhow, I moved most of the crap that had been clogging up my hard drive over to the portable one, and now it's all good, more space for other junk!

Bed, now.

December 13, 2006

Store's finally open.

So we were renovating the store and we closed down on the 17th of November and we opened back up again on the 5th of December and let me tell you, the first few days were hell! I mean people were calling to make sure that we are open and such and all those that just came in to see that we were actually open on the date. I mean, hello! if the door is open and the stuff are out and arranged then we are open people!

Lately I've been reading Shiznat fanfic a lot, and I'm a bit away from B/F, I still read it, but I didn't check it regularly like I used to. :) Just some new obsession, ya know. I also watch Mai HiME and Mai Otome a lot too. And I am undeniably Shizuru fan now. LOL.

I've recently started on Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, it's really not the type of anime I would watch I mean, cutsie little character... I think I watch it because the whole gender bender thing and also the yuri. Not sure if it'll really be a bit of shoujo ai, but I'll watch it for a couple more episodes, just because.

Kiddy Grade... well, I finished the entire series now. 24 episodes of it. I love Lumiere!! She's so cute. Also that little kiss in Ep 20 and stuff kept me going. LOL. I like shoujo ai and yuri in my anime although I could do with more blood, guts and gore, really. Blood splash makes me happy. Like in Hellsing. Man, I can't wait for more of Hellsing OVA.

Now I got some writing for Shiznat (otome) that I had rattling around in my head and I think I should type it down before I get too lazy to. Not that it'll come out as a finish fiction, but hey, it might.

December 03, 2006

Last few days of freetime!

Last night I went to pick up a set of second hand manga with a friend of mine. At first I wasn't gonna go anymore, cause no one was going with me, but well, it turned out that Sai would so, we went and I got my mom a t-shirt and I got Orange Road the entire set (I used to have the complete set but someone borrowed and didn't return them to me) The reprint weren't very well done so I was considering if I want to get it or not. Now I got better one, so I'm quite happy.

Also I got my R/C Illu of Shizuru/Natsuki done, and the Hellsing one also almost complete. Just a bit of touch up and cleaning and they will be fit for posting. The ShizNat one needed a bit of a trim on the side and some wiping down, since the glue left some residue, same goes for Hellsing one. Now they both are done I got something else in mind, I enjoy making them even though they are not very intellectually challenge. (only your sense of aethetic property) Sometimes I have the hell of a time trying to figure out if I wanna leave certain shape uncut or not, and if it'll help the overall picture. Oh well, you will only see it when it's complete. And once it's done, there's no more fixing it.

It's raining again. I like rain, up to a point. :)

I have another 20 min or so to get ready before picking up my friend for working out. Hopefully we'll make it there this time.

November 26, 2006

New R/C Illustration and 2 cuts on the fingers.

I'm not done with Hellsing, Sir Integra yet, but the damn details were killing me, so I'm putting it on hold. While I was reading Mai Otome (Mai Z-HiME) I saw a good illustration to do it so I did. It's of the Gakuenchou Natsuki Kruger and Meister Shizuru Viola.. LOL.

I went through the Hellsing one without any cuts or nicks, but this one, much smaller and shorter amout of time that I'm working on it, I already got 2 cuts. Nice. Bled all over the damn thing too.

Saw first ep of Mai Otome Zwei and I can't wait for fansub, cause I can't understant Japanese!! It looked totally awesome though. And when Natsuki came around asking if they could contact Shizuru (I assumed) and one of the Aswald said something about pretty girl she was scolding at her. It was funny. In the manga it was made pretty clear that they were together. I also can't wait for vol 5 of the manga.

Very interesting beginning all the Meister Otome get together to either destroy or deviate the meteorite, Haruka was as usual, loud and up front. (I didn't see Shizuru 'Kyouen no Marasakizoushou' there though, maybe she was since she wasn't with Natsuki) And while the weapons they use destroyed part of the meteorite Arika went after the big chuck that got away and destroyed it.

Well, that, of course, the beginning of trouble.

We get to see Natsuki and Shizuru in swimsuits again. :) Got to see Miss Maria in her young form and get her butt kicked. Good to see that they tried to prevent the same thing happened before by created the surrogate system for the Pillar.

I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the OVA.

Just got the entire series of Fullmetal Alchemist on dvd in a leather case. I actually contemplating ordering it from, but well, just too many so when I saw this and it was on sale it was perfect. :) I'm happy about it.

Kannazuki no Miko was also licenced here, but not release yet, I can't wait, but if it's too long I might just order it, least waiting for the slow ass release here. Mai Otome is also going to get release, of course I'll get that as well.

November 21, 2006

I'm listening to Bitemarks and Bloodstain by Finch

Too bad they broke up, oh well.

My friend lend me Meitantei Hokenshitsu No Obasan by Akiko Miyawaki. I love this manga, at one time I did have it, but well, away for 8 years meant that my stuffs got dispersed all over the place and as a result, I lost a lot of the manga, this one was no exception. At least someone has the entire thing and I get to read it again. :)

I finished Mai HiME (Hightly Advance Materializing Equipment) and poor Shizuru. Her psychotic episode was understandable, really. I mean, being exposed and rejected like that would've driven anyone into madness. And when they disappeared together...

As for Natsuki for her to realize that Shizuru was her important person and have Duran just as big as Kiyohime, a testament to how strongly she felt for Shizuru and even though I'm pretty much a ShizNat fan, still if I wasn't it would've given me a not so small pause and think about it. And so, I'd like to think that Shizuru get the girl at the end, seeing how when Mai said that love is good and get an agreement from Natsuki whom sitting beside Shizuru (and the way it was shown in the scene too) So, I think we are safe to assume that they are together. Or at least on their way.

I'm writing ShizNat fanfic, it was meant to be dabble at first, but well, now that it is over 8 pages long, I guess it isn't a dabble anymore. LOL.

November 18, 2006

We went on a little shopping trip today.

The store is close for renovation, thus I had to go and take a look at some material, I f**king hate car ride, especially with seat like the one I had to sit in today. Man, my neck was killing me, and my back just wanna divorce from my body.

As for the material, I didnt get it, we just got some sample so mom could take a look before we order. Other stuff, however... So, I got 1/6 scale Saber in a dress with sandle from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, Jack Skeleton latern head, 1 pinky street. And I got the entire series of Kiddy Grade. After that it's shopping mall, not really a place I spend my time really, I prefer to be in some bookstore than a mall, but I did get a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Enough spending for a day, I did, for just a moment, wanting to get Tenjou Tenge, but I decided not to, the main character annoyed the hell out of me, thus I don't really wanna see it.

I'm watching Animal Precinct at the moment, and I'm yet again, amazed at how cruel and careless people can be. Animal aren't property, they are living things, I mean, dude if you wanna get a pet, take care of it! If you don't want it, give it to someone that does. Hard concept? I think not.

I'm watching Mai Otome, again, well, I pick and choose which ep I'm watching. I enjoy the show, quite a lot, even though my usual favorite tend to run towards blood guts and gore, but this one got lots of violence without the above :) And now my mom wants Shizuru Viola in Graceful Amethys robe. ha ha ha

November 11, 2006

I'm still crazy about Shizuru.

Yup, ShizNat.

I'm waiting for the dvd to come out, and well, I get kinda annoyed now. *sigh* in the mean time I'm suppose to be finishing up a website for a friend. It's pretty simple and clean, just the way my friend's mom wanted. Not that I get pay for that thing, but what the hell. I kinda volunteered becaues I felt bad for her, thus me in this position, although I pretty much got it done and she said ok, except the color, which I've changed and I'll drop it for her to take a look before I slice and dice.

So, I'm writing a little ShizNat, a piece of fluff really, just felt like they deserve it. Although my usual line of thought would go toward the angst path, but hey I can work it all out before I decide if I wanna post it and where.

I'm back to working out, yeah I needed it and also I have to get my money worth. Last night I was on the machine for about 20 min before we do the whole weight lift thing and then it's badminton for 3 games, not that I'm all psych about it, I'd rather we go play squash, but whatever. I think if I get the time I'll go play squash for maybe an hour. If I have the time. Nothing is certain about my schedule these days, it's kinda sad.

Arggggggggggggg I want my Mai HiME now!!!!

November 05, 2006

I got some manga today.

Volume 33 of Ushio and Tora, the final volume!!

I've been reading this for well, a long while and (say 10 years) and I'm quite sad that it's over now. On one hand I wanted it to go one, but on the other, it's about time it's finish. Ended just how I thought it would, which is a good thing, 'cause being a sadist that I am I would've make them all die!! LOL. But that's just me and it's a good thing that the author wasn't me.

Got all 40 volumes of 3x3 eyes. All I can say is it's about time! The damn thing was so long and well, just so many up and down and up and down some more. It's like die already. But then I do enjoy it once I get to read them all in one sitting and not having to wait for months.

Got volume 3 of Soryunden (the legend of dragon kings) I'd love it more with Clamp's illustration, but then you can't have everything.

I just rewatched vol 4 and 5 of Mai HiME dvd. Man I want the rest already. Too bad Shizuru didn't get her Natsuki in this one... At least she got her in Mai Otome. The girl gotta get her girl after all that heartbreak, come on. I like Shizuru, she's awesome. I think I'm in love!! Such tragic love.

I still didn't get to watch all Bakuretsu Tenchi, despite the fact that I have the entire series sitting on my shelves for a while now. And I still didn't watch Fate/Stay Night, well, I got to ep 14 and didn't get the see the rest yet. I saw Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori though. The first ep was... well, that just rang true. People will do one of the two things when seeing other people get bullied. Join in, or ignore. very few would step in and try to stop it. I'm looking forward to the rest. We see more of Emma Ai on this one than the first time around. I wish they pay more attention to her than they did. Good music too.

November 04, 2006

who are those little girls in pain
just trapped in caste of dark side of the moon
twelve of them shining bright in vain
like flowers that blossom just once in years
they're dancing in the shadow like whispers of love
just dreaming of place where they're free as dove
they've never been allowed to love in this cursed cage
it's only the fairytale they believe

[Alyssa S. Mai HiME]
current obsession : Shizuru/Natsuki

I've just finished watching Mai Otome (Mai Z-HiME) And I would've liked to see the pair kiss just once. I mean, it's pretty obvious and I'm happy that the Shizuru/Natsuki relationship was realized here.

Shizuru was awesome. LOL

To love that much and get nothing in return would've make anyone crazy.

Nagi was nothing more than a little worm, someone should cut him in half and see if he could grow back. Or maybe not, 2 Nagi would've been more annoying.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the rest of Mai HiME, cause I only got to volume 5 on dvd which is episode 20. I can't wait to see the rest. Although I know it won't be much of a happy ending. But then nothing I watch seems to have happy ending and I quite like it that way.

My friend is back from 2 months hiatus. I wish I could go on one, but not possible. But then I couldn't do what she did anyhow. I prefer staying home with my internet connection and my books, movies and anime. So, give me a week of not having to take anyone anywhere and not going to the store would make me a very happy camper. (happy as a clam I tell you)

So, I'm waiting for Marimite OVA to come out, in the mean time I think I'm gonna put in that order for new Merry Gentry series as well as some Clair McNab books. I'm still reading A Matter of Degree, only because I stopped reading last week to do something else, which is why I didn't finish it in 2 days like I normally would. At least I got things waiting to be read, much better than having nothing to read at all.

October 21, 2006

I am reading A Matter of Degree by Alex Marcoux.

It is a sequal to Back to Salem and I had been waiting for this book for a while now so I'm quite happy that it got here yesterday afternoon. I have about 100 pages to go still, but then I started reading this last night. :)

I can wait to get my Fate/Stay Night dvd and my Utena and Jigoku Shoujo. Once they all got here I'll be very very happy. LOL

I still have another 2 books by Claire McNab waiting for me, which I will probably start after this one finish.

I wanna see The Grudge 2, still hadn't got the time, so I'm contenting myself with Mai Otome (Mai Z-Hime) Entertaining :) I enjoy them a lot. :) I love Shizuru, in both Hime and Otome. She's... I can't explain it. I guess I will atempt this again later, my stomach is screaming for food now.

October 12, 2006

Watching today : Fate / Stay Night

I got the first volume of the dvd the other day and finally got to see it today, I liked it, or rather I liked Saber. :)

See, my motivation to watch something is just easy like that. I was watching Strawberry panic too.. and also Mai HiME. I got Karas a while ago and still didn't get to actually sit down and watch it properly.

So, I ordered Fate/Stay Night, Rozen Maiden today, and I can't wait for them to get here!!

We are renovating the store, so it's all dusty and noisy there, I don't really like it, but it has to be done, so I can't really complain. While that was going on I was cutting my way through my new r/c (reductive conversion illustration, my teacher called it) It's of Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing. :) (I just like putting her whole name in) And another half will be Alucard, which will be on seperate piece of board. I usually use smaller boards and make them into a sort of puzzle but I guess I'm just trying to figure out what I can and can't do with new material (I couldn't get contact paper here, so I use sticker instead and on plastic board and cutting that to size is a bitch!) It's about 65% finished (I have to go through the entire scene which has buildings and dead bodies everywhere) But when I'm done I shall be very satisfy. Not that I know what to do with it afterward.

Bed time... *sigh*

October 06, 2006

It's 3:42 am. And I just got in.

Last night I spent the entire evening at my friend's till about 4 am. I was telling her about one of the most educational period of my life. The longest sort-of relationship I had. Wow, thought about ancient history. I never really thought about it before, and even though I knew that the entire thing was foolish and rather irrational of me, but at the time I didn't see it like that. Weird, huh.

Now, looking back I knew that I learned a lot from then and well, something I could do with out. And that one person that shall remain nameless, and how many times she popped in and out of my life.

My friend was rather astonished, to say the least. She said she never thought that I could be like that. Cause I was always the reasonable one, rational and emotionally close off. *ha ha* Calm, cool and collected all the time. Well, not a lot of people saw me during that period of my life and those that did never knew me from before. The only one that saw from the beginning to end was Jamie. Bless the boy, he's the best. Now I'm just glad that the saga was all over and maybe someday I'll write whatever I could remember down, just to remind me to never do it again.

On other note.

I'm doing another r/c illustration. It's Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, standing in midst of bodies and blood. New material that I've never work with in regard of this technique... a plastic (they called future board, I don't know) and black sticker. I used to use black matt board and contact paper, we'll see if it'll work out. :)

My friend is going back to retreat on Sunday again and she'll be gone till the end of the month. I've been skipping work out, but I'll go back on Monday. Man, I should get some sleep now. Tomorrow is another charity thing I said I'll go.

September 22, 2006

It's raining again.

My aunt is going down south so on Sunday I'll have to fend for myself and mind the store pretty much by myself. My dad might open it for me, and 'might' is the key here.

I didn't get to do anything while in store today, didn't write, I didn't even turn my laptop on. I was trying to watch FMA the movie and I didn't even get to do that, I fell asleep. So, it's nap time. I guess I can do that tonight while watching Jigoku Shoujo too. I actually like JS, onlything that it would make the series much better was the back story of Emma Ai.

I'm waiting for 8pm to roll around and see if the rain stops. I can go workout.. wooohooo... *sigh* Maybe I can get my PT to play badminton with me instead.

September 21, 2006

I got Hellsing vol.5 today. I didn't realize that they release it here, so I'm gonna have to go get the other 4 vol. *sigh*

It rains here everyday now, or rather every night. Kinda nice, except the whole wet dog thing, my dogs will go outside and run around in the wet grass every morning, can't really stop them from doing that, unless you want them to pee in the house, which is a no-no.

I just saw that I got Tsubasa Chronicle vol 3 twice, maybe I could bring one to change. Maybe. I'm doing a new layout for the blog, we'll see how that works. :) I could get the blogger code wrong, if they kept it the same I wouldn't have the problem, now I just don't have time to figure things out like I use to, I guess I better pay more attention.

Cin, have you gone to the lillicious link I gave you? You can read a little about Marimite there (maria sama ga miteru) I can't really explain it, it's about all girl school, which has soeur system (sisters) and the relationship between them. All the trial and tribulation.

Ok, I should go back to watch Jigoku shoujo now (hell girl)

September 18, 2006

Drabble : Ogasawara/Shigeyoshi

Sachiko rushed as much as her propriety would allow, this was her first movie date with Minako and she wasn't going to be late, even though the traffic didn't help her one little bit. She had spent the entire day on edge and worrying about the little things that she had never paid any mind to them before.

But Minako was unlike anyone she had ever known.

The front of movie theater came into sight and Sachiko felt her heart leaped up to her throat, there leaning against one of the pillar was Shigeyoshi Minako, dressing, surprisingly, very casual in her loose fitting jeans and hooded sweatshirt. Her long pale hair loose around her shoulder. Rosa Chinensis en Bouton stopped for a moment to look at her.

Then the crownless queen of Judo turned and looked at her, as if she could feel her approaching. Minako smiled and Sachiko broke out into a run toward her.

that's it, I think. :)
Got new volume of Air Gear today, as well as K2 and Double Souls.

My car is in the garage for some fixing today. No, I didn't crash it or side swipe anything really. More like someone else did it to mine while I was in the movie months before and since my insurance was about to be up for the year I just took it in to claim so, they gonna have to repaint most of it.

Now I'm without car for the next 8-10 days. Kinda suck really, cause I had to take my motorcyle to the gym today. I booked the squash for 9pm and I got there 30 min early and there was no one there, so I guess someone only played for 30 min. I went in and proceeded to beat the crap out of the rubber ball for almost an hour before my friend came in and told me it was raining!

Long story short, I left and well got wet on my way home. At least it didn't pour, just a little drizzle.

I'm writing Marimite/Sobakkasu xover, why, because I wanted to. LOL.

I loved Ogasawara Sachiko and Shigeyoshi Minako and being the freak that I am, I wrote them up as a pair. Not finish but well, I'll keep going till I feel like stopping.

Hey Cin!!

How ya doing?

How's everything?

I'm back to listening to some Taking Back Sunday now.

September 07, 2006

Watching : nothing really... more like listening

I'm just eatching, I'm starving that I actually get an egg over easy ( don't really like sunny side up) and some white rice. Yeah... desperate.

I'm writing, well, not my usual stuff at the moment. I've just finished reading Sobukkasu by Kikuchi Shouta again, and I love Shigeyoshi Minago. It was awesome. So, I'm writing Sachiko/Minago just because they are so different. LOL.. Hopefully I can pull that one off.

Why this pair??

Cause I'm a freak, and I just like taking 2 characters that had nothing to do with each other and put them together.

My DSL at home still not very usable... thus dial up at the store.. it sucks!!! So I'm thinking getting DSL at the store now. So I can read all day!!!!

September 05, 2006

Watching : nothing really, just left the tv droning in the background

On Sat I went and dragged my friend to the next town to get some books, manga really, and she said ok. We both figured that I would be the one that spent the most money on this little trip, but as it turned out, she spent more than I did, due to the fact that she bought 2 sets of some Chinese series. Why would she wanna buy them is beyond me, seeing how she's going on the retreat right the next day.

I got a bunch of Manga, even got 1st Volume of Strawberry Panic. Not that I'm all that fawn of shoujo, but it's Shoujo-ai so it's all good, even if it's a little on the silly side. :)

Man, I would love to get Marimite manga, except I can't read Japanese. Although I did say to my friend that if they get here, I still wouldn't have known, cause I never look at that section anyway. Normall, I like action and blood guts and gore in my manga.. (look up Berserk, Hellsing) Some extreme emotional situation also good too, a bit of psychological thriller. :)

But then I'm also happy with Yuri...

Read another one 'Line' by Yua Kotegawa.

It's a oneshot. With Yuri subtext, the story was pretty good.

I think I'm getting too many at one time and what happen is that I would read the one I wanted to get in the first place and the rest will get put aside till a lot later. :) Actually, the best thing I should do is getting one set at the time and so I wouldn't put anything on hold for a long time. I already had at least 3 sets of manga unread, so I should really get to it.

August 30, 2006

Watching : Missing

I've been sick like a dog for the past couple of weeks. Last week I went to the gym and decided that I wanna play squash, and so, while my friends were in the pool treading water (they weren't really swimming, just made good impression of it. LOL) I went and played for about 30 min, and well, right the next day I was running fever again. Really, I'm tired of this. *sigh*

I've been watching Marimite over again, and well, I really really like Sachiko. LOL.

I'm at that state where one character is just so cute to me and I'll read and and I'll watch and I'll read and I'll watch again. FUN!

I'm hoping for 3rd season of the series, I'm not really looking forward to the show with just Yumi but whatever happens. Seems like later issue of novel has less of Sachiko... *sniff*

August 11, 2006

Watching : American Chopper

I just got back from my friend's place, we went out and then hung out till 2am. LOL. Yesterday I got me an Iomega Screen Play (portable harddrive) It can play media file right out of the thing, so I got it. I asked my dad and he said ok. :) (big plus, cause I don't have the money) I spent nearly an hour just to figure out how exactly I can get it to work. The damn start guide was of no help at all. It didn't say what it should've said in the first place that the drive has to be in FAT32 or it won't work on the tv... and it didn't mention it one bit, so I had to go on the website and read through a bunch of stuff to figure that one out. Prior to that I was renaming files and check the file type and all that crap. It was pissing me off. The actual solution took me less than 5 minutes. They should've state it in the first place.

Stupid quick start guide. I wanna know who write these things?

I wanna strangle them.

But now I get the thing and I was watching a bunch of stuff on it so it's ok... I'm happy for now. Next I'm making a box to carry it with (the drive, remote, cables) :)

August 05, 2006

so, it's been a while. I've been busy, but then what else is new, same shit different day. My lcd screen broke down about a week ago, so I had to get a new one, this one is 19" wide screen, it's cool, but still I didn't have the money to spend on this, at least not right now anyway, but well, neccessity and all that.

Got a new printer cause the old one just doesn't work anymore, it's a good thing they are cheaper than they used to be. ALso got a new Wacom Graphite4, it's silver. I've been wanting to get a new one for a while, cause I only have one that it suck getting it back and fort between home and store, good to get a new one so I get one for both machine.

So, now I'm broke.

My friend let me borrow some books, forgot to bring them from her place. LOL. I let her borrow some of my manga, Dragon Voice, Kurogo, Cardcaptor Sakura, Q detective school and I got some Fullmetal Alchemist back from her. Now I wanna get Pigmario by Wada Shinji maybe I can get them used, it'd be cheaper. And maybe Glass Mask too.

June 26, 2006

So, I know I said that my cellphone was dead, but well, today, it is well and truely not coming back. And after I realized that in the morning, my dad managed to broke the damn 2 numbers in the store.. we couldn't use the phone the entire day and probably tomorrow as well.

My mother said that tomorrow she'll drop in so I could go see to a new phone. Well, news flash I don't have enough money for it. I told her so, and I asked if she gonna get me one, she said no. So, what's the damn point of her dropping in so I can go look for a new phone, 'cause I can't buy a new phone now anyway. Wouldn't make a different if I go see it tomorrow or on Saturday, I still can't get a new cellphone.

I wanted O2 and I was saving up money for it, now I don't have enough money yet, I was hoping my nokia would last another month or two. Man, when it rains it pours.

June 25, 2006

What's been happening.... oh, several things I guess.

My phone is dead.. yeah, well and truely and I couldn't even get a new one. I've been saving up money, wanting a new printer first, I'm sick of the one I have, it just won't cooperate with me, seemed to be something wrong everytime I turned it on, so I gave up. Fixing it just didn't seem to worth the time and money, so a new one, besides printers are not really expensives these days. Of course, things just had to go wrong.

My damn cellphone started to act up several weeks before, at first I thought that the battery ran out when it shut itself down for no reason, then 'start-up failed' message showed up when I tried to use it. Now, it doesn't even have the courtesy to start at all. So, I'll be incommunicado which is bad, not that it would bother my parents, since they never call me anyhow.

I asked my mother if she could get me a new one, the answer was : NO. So, my other alternative was save up money to buy a new one and I have every intention to do that, except the damn phone broke before I have enough.

I thought coming home would mean less stress over this crap, when my things break down I can get a new one without worrying that I won't have enough money to last me a semester, now I know it's worse. So, next month, I'll probably have to forget about books that I wanna get and movies I wanna see. I fucking hate my life.

Watching : Nothing really

Well, I haven't been in the gym at all for 4 days straight, a friend of mine that has been going with me had some kinda seminar for 2 days and Saturday night I was just way too tired. I got Jack in Santa suit and Sally with Sawing Machine on Wed when I went to see X-Men 3 and then Saturday we went to do some shopping (mostly grocery) and I picked up Victor and Emily figures.

I went to the gym and we played Badminton, and then afterward it's squash, I booked the court again for tomorrow night at 9 cause I can't go any earlier. Kinda suck really, but what can ya do. I'm getting the hang of it now, so I can actually hit for a while without chasing the ball around too much.

Hopefully I'll get better. LOL.

Working on the new layout for crypticrain. Almost there, just a few more things and it's up.

I've been writing too, so that's a good thing. There are 5 stories altogether that I'm currently writing, I might get one finish in a day or two to post. :) Maybe I'll post it when I update the layout. :)

May 21, 2006

Watching : CSI: New York

I went and saw The DaVinvi code on the 24th and I got Micah by Laurell K. Hamilton the same night. The movie was good, although it was almost 3 hours, I'd love to see the uncut version though (I mean the one with all the deleted scenes and such) They had some protesting here for it not to be shown, but then religion and business.. I never like people that thinks they should tell other people what to do, what to see, what to read and what to listen to. I think people like that are arrogant to think that they know better than anyone. You can't presumed to know what's best for everyone.

When they couldn't get the theater to stop showing they wanted to cut out the last 10 minutes, of course that didn't happen, the fact which I'm happy about. Just people you don't wanna watch it, doesn't mean you can tell other people not to see it. They should just up and die.

The movie was great, I can't wait to see it again.

Next I'll be waiting for X-Men 3 : The Last Stand.

I finished Micah the next day. I'm starting to get real sick of the whole the more men the merrier of Anita. It gets tedious just reading about her indecision and I was happier reading when it was just her and JC and Richard, and the rest are just annoying.

May 05, 2006

watching : nothing

I tried to get in last night and well, it just won't load for me so i gave up. I finally got in!!

I got The OC season 3 and The L Word season 2 today, and finally picked up that copy of HP:tGoF today. Afterwards, my aunt asked me to take her to pick up some shampoo and conditioner that we use in the apartment and so we stopped at the home products center thing, I got a small rug for my comp desk (my hardwood floor can't take the wheels of the chair), got a desk lamp too, cause only one of the desk has lamp, and I intended to use the other one drawing and cutting stuff, I just can't do it here, the keyboard was in the way.

I found a site for flatpack toy.. good stuff

April 26, 2006

Watching : CSI

I'm getting a set of Winsor&Newton color ink and some new nibs. I lost a whole box of them when I used them as a still life piece. Kinda suck.

I'm looking to get a dvd recorder, not sure if I'll be able to, I kinda want to record some show and stuff.. I'm looking forward to SuperNatural and Hex. :) But I can also load those, so we'll see how it goes.

I'm working on a new layout for crypticrain getting closer all the time, I just need to arrange some stuff and type in some details and such. It'll look good once it's done, I hope. :) I need to do some collaging as well as drawing, I want to, otherwise I won't do anything at all. I'm still reading DaVinci Code, I was reading the ebook till I sent my ipaq in for some repair, now I guess I'll have to reread from the top. should be fun.

April 14, 2006

watching : Psychic Witness

I went to the vid rental store today to returned what I rented yesterday, which were Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Doom. I intented to go earlier in the day, like in the afternoon instead of at night, but well, my mom decided to play hooky today so I got stuck at the store all day. It was quiet. Water Festival started on the 13th, however in northern part they play as early as the 11th. They usually play on the 18th and 19th here but well, they seem to be starting early this year cause they started playing now!

I found Dennis the Manace and Death to Smoochie!!! I loved those movies! I couldn't believe it, so I rented them both, I guess I'll figure a way to dub them and keep 'em since they don't have 'em for sell.

I'm figuring out some javascript so I can use it on my new layout, yeah figuring out cause I was too dumb to take the class while I was in school. I'm just not good with the stuff, the best I can do is trial and error as I try using them. Can't write them to save my life. LOL

I saw a spot for 'Supernatural' and it looks pretty good. I can't wait to see it. I'm watching Ghostwhisperer and Medium and CSI currently. Got Airgear ep 1 and 2 too... should be fun.

April 06, 2006

Watching : First Wives Club

Saw Ultraviolet today, it was fun!!! I loved it! Of couse the story was a little weak, action sequence makes up for it though. So they end up being vampire... interesting. I wanna see it again, probably the dvd, not in theater, don't have time as it is.

My dad asked if my laptop was good, and if it has other language, I said nope, it's pretty old now, he said he might buy me a new one (asked the price and everything) or something to that effect. Well, right now I can't get one for myself anyhow... BROKE... that's me.

After that 42" plasma tv, I'm still coughing up money to pay him back. Money don't grow on tree, ya know... which is too bad. LOL.

Bed time.. man I'm exhausted.

April 05, 2006

listening : Goodbye My Lover [James Blunt]

I went and see Inside Man last night, it was 10:10pm show, and I was gonna go by myself, since none of my friends could make it, but then I came home and well, the girl that works at the front here just finished her shift, so I dragged her instead. She's cool about these kind of crap, she didn't even know which movie I was going. LOL

I can't wait to see Ultraviolet though.. man, it's gonna be so good. And also Ice Age 2 : The Melt Down and Basic Instinct 2 good movies!!

So I guess maybe this weekend or if I can get my mom to let me go, tomorrow afternoon. LOL.

Otherwise I'll be going to see Ultraviolet next week. I don't like going to the movie during the weekend, the thought of me having to fight for a seat just isn't so appealing, been there done that, although I rarely see a movie that is completely fill to the brim with people, I just don't like people, they are inconsidered and on a few occasions I sat near those people that think they are the only one in the theater, talking loud, eating loud, giving blow by blow comment to each other, I wanna kill those people.

Anyhow, I'm working on a new layout for and I think I'm gonna centralized it, my fanfic sites, my blog my other miscellaneous stuff gonna be all there, so it'll be easy to find, or rather easier for me to keep track of.

It's almost done, just getting the html files ready and so, tomorrow at the store I'll try to do that, while I write the fics too... yeah I've been writing, not a lot in one sitting but it's pretty good, better than what I've been managed when I wait to get home to write anyway. I have enough to post now I think, just a bit of fine tuning and we got a post!

Hey Cin, how ya doing???

March 29, 2006

Listening : X-Mas [Sevendust]

so I'm updating my IPod nano, I got the lanyard in-ear headphone the day before. I should've gotten it from commart thinggie, but I was too busy looking for a silicone case that I forgot about it till I get home, which mean I had to get it later, which meant that I had to pay more for it than if I bought it at the convention.

My dad sold a building (um...I believe it called block building... just 1 room) and so the money got tranferred into my account the week before I went to the convention and thus I had enough money to get me a new laptop if I wanted. They got lots of them too, but I like buying these stuff from people that can answer my question, so I didn't get any, and I told my mother that I would've use some money for the new laptop she asked why didn't I, I said I don't wanna listen to her bitching at me, and also I didn't have much confident in those people to be paying that much money on something that expensive to find that it didn't work out so well. So I'll get it somewhere else I can get them to take responsibility if something went wrong. LOL

I better get my ass to bed, life still suck and I can only ignore everyone else around me.

March 25, 2006

Listening : Send the Pain Below [chevelle]

I went to ComMart thinggie in Bangkok today, I kinda expected it to be bigger, with more stuff, but it wasn't, so it was kinda disappointing, but I got me an Ipod Nano 2GB ( I wanted 4GB, but well, honestly, I don't think I'd be using all those space, I mean, I don't even fill up the 2gb with what I wanna listen to, sure I could fill it up, but will I listen to all of them? nope)

I got IPod Nano and Sony 1gb flash drive, a silicone sleeve for the ipod, that's it. so little for such a big effort. But at least I get to see my friends, so it was all right.

I better get my ass in bed, I'm tired.

March 07, 2006

Watching : Judging Amy

well, I don't know what to watch right now, thus Judging Amy.

I got my 42" Plasma screen tv on Saturday so it's a big happy, and no, my parents weren't gonna pay it for me, they just gonna front me the money. So, I'll be pinching pennies for the next say.... year?

My mother said, why don't I put it out in the living room so everybody else can watch it too.. I was like, if I was to be the one to cough up the money for it, then it's gonna be in my room, cause the next thing I know they'll be bitching at me for monopolizing it out there too... can't win, can I?

I brought out my 29" tv out to the livingroom though, the one that was in there before was smaller. Anyhow, I like my new toy, make me happy for a while. I can watch movie without feeling like it's so tight on the screen anymore.

February 27, 2006

Watching : Judging Amy

Today I dropped Gizmo off for a bath, he has to have one at least once a week, and I have to drop him off at the petshop to do it, cause well, he got so much fur now it takes hours to dry him off, thus paying someone else to do it. Then the girl at the store noticed that his eye's hurt.

Well, so it's to the vet next, got some eyedrop and he's been playing to his sick role ever since.

What a butthead.

He's been sleeping all day though.

I got all Blue Sonnet loaded this morning. I'm waiting for Cat's Eye, I use to read that manga and I had all 10 vol of it, but then well, I wasn't here, things got moved and disappeared. So now I'll have to buy them all over again, if they still have it in print or reprint.

I guess watching the anime will have to do for a while, I found that most of the time anime is pretty close to the manga, well, pretty close isn't exactly the same, but you get the gist and they are just as enjoyable. :)

Actually, I should be going to bed right about now... so I'm gonna do that while I let my ppc charge. Forgot to do it last night and the night before so now it's completely dead. lol... so much for keeping all my appointment current.

March 1st, Gizmo's appointment.

February 12, 2006

Watching : Medium

I bought a new PPC yesterday afternoon, it's an IPaq Hx2490 I wanted the other one which is a 6300 series, but they were discontinued and they don't have them in stock either. Too bad, it would've been perfect. Anyhow, this one is good for what I want it for. I was gonna go with the other one, hx2790, it looks exactly the same as 2490 with the exception of having more bell and whistle ( ie biometic fingerprint reader, now what am I gonna do with that??)

Well, I got my doctor's appointment all loaded up and some reading. A few notes to remind myself (like electric bill, water bill, cheque I need to write, that sorta crap) Now I'm saving up for a new laptop, cause I want one!

I'm so bad with these stuffs, I swear, sometimes I don't know what I want them for anyway. But I definitely can use a PPC even if just to remind me to do stuff like actually get my rabie shots on time. I almost miss one just last week.

Oh yeah, I got bit by a strayed the Saturday before last and well, spent my evening in the ER, getting a couple of shots and my wounds dressed ( 5 fangs ) Had little use of my right arm till the last couple of days, it's better now though, still hurting a bit, and my arm would ache from shoulder down, but it'll go away eventually. Well, I hope.

Ok, back to Medium.

February 05, 2006

Listening : Burn [ Alkaline Trio ]

I got bitten by a stray dog yesterday evening, 5 fang marks and some bleeding. I was heading out to bookstore anyway, so I just went out, my mother didn't even know I was bitten. I got to the hospital, waiting for a while cause they were swamped. Would you believe that? Anyway, I got shots and they dressed my wounds, recommended a serum I should get cause I got bitten on my right elbow but they were out of that one, so I had to go to the other hospital, I didn't go right then cause well, I was having a hard time bending my elbow and my should ached.

When I got home I found that I've lost my keys as well.

Beautiful day, really.. I mean.. I coulda kill for a day like that. (yeah, right!!)

So, today I went and get that damn serum, cost me pretty penny too. But I can claim with the insurance so it's ok.

Now, shower time, oh joy...

January 30, 2006

Watching : Outbreak

Yeah, I'm watching Outbreak, I never get to buy that dvd but everytime I saw it on any channel I watch it. I should really buy it the next time I see it on the shelve.

I've noticed something about these kids in my family... well, my brother my sister my cousins.. blah blah blah.. they have no repect for anyone or anyone's time. I told my brother to shut the hell up last night, he has to go over to my aunt's and he was watching cartoon till 10pm and when he got into the livingroom he kept saying let's go now. I told him shut up and until he can get his ass places by himself then he has no right to be rushing anyone, especially when he draged his ass in the first place. Fucking spoiled I'd say.

If I have my way he'd be in boarding school till he finish highschool, so he knows to do shit for himself.

This just annoys the hell out of me, I don't like people like that. You don't do anything and generally being a useless piece of flesh and still demand they get their way. Fuck that shit.

January 29, 2006

Watching : Animal Police

I'm planning on going to see Underworld : Evolution tomorrow evening, that if my mother isn't incapacitated by the dentist, she has an appoinment at 1 PM tomorrow, new set of teeth.. LOL she had an artificial roots implanted about 3 months ago, so now they are trying on some teeth.

Today is Chinese New Year, yeah... usually I got money in red envelop (well about 10 years ago) Now I get zip... Oh well. I was hoping maybe my dad's gonna give me some so I can get a new PPC, since my mother took mine, she plays solitair on it.

I'm guessing I'll get nothing.

Life suck man...

January 25, 2006

I got my car for a little over three months now, so it's time for the first service. I've been debating for ever, whether I wanna get it to Honda dealer for it, they offered the first service for free, it's either first 3 months or 1,000 miles.. and well, I don't have the time to be sitting on my ass for hours on end to wait for a free service. So I called up my uncle and ask about the garage he usually goes to. And I went with my aunt today. Pretty quick, I'd say, even with the time it took to drive there, which was not that far considering I use to drove farther than that for when I was in Methuen.

I got Rozen Maiden, the entire first season loaded, and still didn't watch it yet. I guess I will later. Also got the second too, and didn't watch it. MAR ep 27, hell, I hadn't watched the thing since ep 10. I'll get time to see it eventually.

I'm waiting for Underworld : Evolution. :) It'd be great.

Ok, time for shower and I'll be all set to watch Medium.

January 19, 2006

Watching : Monk

It's my birthday today, and it's just as shitty as any other day. Big surprise! We closed the store today around 6:30PM well, actually I would've to stay till maybe 8PM except we lost power for almost an hour, so we packed up and get ready to leave, but once we're finished and were closing the door, the power came back on!

What did I get for my birthday?

Well, some shirts... exactly 2, flowers, what the hell am I gonna do with flowers?

What did I get for Christmas?


New year?


Great year so far ain't it?

January 08, 2006

Watching : CSI : Miami

My dad is out of town, AGAIN. It gets annoying, I mean I do understand that he wants to stop working and all that shit, but then he's the one that created all that problem so he's gotta stay and fix the goddamn thing! I'm so sick with my family. I told him I should've come back, he said I shouldn't say that.

Why not??

Ever since I got back it's problem and I didn't cause it, everyone else did. I wanna be left by myself. I just want everyone to leave me alone, just drop dead and I'll be happy.

I don't need them, I really don't.

And they ask what do I have to be stressed about!!

What don't I have to be stressed about??!!

Fucking hate them.

January 03, 2006

Watching : Monk

My friends left this morning, which is kinda sad, I mean, I don't usually have anyone to complain to. Let's face it, nobody would've understand my ranting anyway. We all ended up sleeping and let the movie watched us everynight. Just couldn't keep our eyes open. LOL

I got them to play "Paint Doctor" with me, it was fun, I hadn't played it for so long I forgot all the rules and I had to figure it out all over again. I mean the damn directions they gave me wasn't all that clear. Where do you take the life point after you take it away, d'you keep it? Put it in the pile?? I ended up just putting it in the pile cause then it'd be too easy to get to the pre-op.

It was fun.

Changed my sheets, I have to get a new comforter.

I want a dvd recorder, my mom's gonna let me get one.

Gizmo's sick, he's got runny nose, a bit of fever, but still... he just couln't leave the mob alone!! I couldn't mob the floor, he kept running after it. He's asleep now though, good thing.

New year resolution... um... lose weight?? (after all that indulgent I definitely need to get them all off)

More drawing, more writing.

Definitely, more of the last two.

January 02, 2006

Watching : Charlie and Chocolate Factory

So, I hadn't update my blog in a long while due to...

1. I somehow screwed up the layout I made, it was the blog's code that I didn't get right so nothing get posted.

2. my comp was dead for a few days and I didn't get the time to figure out what I did wrong so...

3. I was, am, and will be BUSY AS HELL!!

Also I use the template provided by Blogger cause I don't have time for a new layout right now. clean and simple, it's ok though I'll figure it out what went wrong.

Didn't see The Chronicles of Nania : The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe cause I was too busy doing the damn work, I couldn't even get satureday free!!
