Sleep deprived, exhaustion, Christmas Eve

A friend of mine came yesterday, only didn't plan to stay the night, although I think she knew she would be staying the night. I went to another friend's, supposed to be tutoring them on some writing.

Me? Teaching... right.

I did explain, as best I could about the thing, problem is, they are just not very skill at it to begin with. It's hard to explain how to write structure wise when they can't string a sentence together and have them make sense. LOL.

Well, it takes time, time I'm not sure that they have.

Well, my A/C unit had been dripping for 2 nights, and so I didn't get any sleep, and last night I was getting some anime for a friend and so it took some times, and so... as a result I went to bed around 4:30 am. and actually fell asleep around 5. And by 6 my friend was up, she had to get to the bus early.

Needless to say I'm exhausted, and the headache is growing from the size of MA, to TX now.

I got A Cry In the Dark (1988) a couple of days ago. I gotta sit down and watch it later, preferably somewhere without any interruption.

Man, I need sleep, my eyes are burning. I still have some e-mail to send out.

Dammit I forgot.

Shizuru's birthday was 2 days ago!!
DSL trouble, anime, manga

I was unable to use my DSL for 2 days, Sunday and Monday, at first I was thinking, oh well, it must be some server trouble, because it worked fine all day Saturday, and since I wasn't home all day, it didn't bother me all that much. Then when I got home on Sunday night, I was like what the hell.

But I was patient.

Very, very patient.

I waited another day, still no signal, I was seething, I mean, what the hell is going on?!

Now I was calling the guy to come take a look at the phoneline, he couldn't come on Monday, then my aunt proceeded to tell me that the guy that came in to cut the branches told her he saw this line broken but he didn't know what it was. So now it's the damn line, and I asked her why she didn't just tell me, she said she didn't know. I was like great, so when something goes wrong in the house, I'm suppose to discover this myself when I'm not even home for most of the day?!

Now I just called our mechanic and told him to get his ass over to fix the damn line, like NOW!

Well, it got done that day and now it's fine.

They just had to piss me off, don't they.

Well, then yesterday my aunt wasn't in, she went to have her check up, my mom was sick and she expected me to be at the store all day by myself. Hell, I can open by myself it's not a big deal, but I can not stay all day by myself. And I told her so, so she said well tell your day not to open then, so I did.

I get the chance to get my manga and anime because of this. I ran out with my aunt (another aunt) Got new volume of.

Erementar Gerad

Mai Otome Zwei vol 1 (2 episodes)
MAR vol. 12
Jigoku Shoujo vol. 1 (4 episodes)

2 sets of manga, my friend asked me to pick up for her.

Then when I got home (after some side track) My aunt (another one) wanted me to go look for some chairs I mean seriously, for once I just wanna stay home without anyone telling me I have to go here and there and pick up this and drop that.

And I found that now my DSL at home works, the one at the store doesn't!

What else can go wrong, I wanna know.

Package, multiply, layout...

I got my package yesterday.


I've been waiting,'s ETA is Dec. 23, which I didn't think it'd be that slow, or at least I hope it won't be. :) It seems that I was right.

On this package I got

Greta Garbo's Collection : 9 DVD
Spiderman Trilogy
Ghosts of Mississippi
Indictment : The McMartin Trial
A Lick of Frost

I'll read the 2 books later.

Multiply :

I've had this account for a while now, I only signed up for it only because I left a message on my friend's multiply site once, and I thought what the hack. Anyhow, my friend left a message for me there to and I quote 'Decorate it, already'. So I did. It's not as customizable as say Blogger, because you still need the base theme from them and then you have to figure out what to do on your own.

I got by.

So, I made a banner for it and then a bit on the side and then figure out the color. Not as well as I would've liked but it wasn't that bad, I don't think.

So, I think she's happy now. LOL

Of course, I could just imagine her face when she saw it. She would've said, again?? DWP? AGAIN??? Well, I can't help it, Meryl in that suit is just... grrrrrrr...

Crisp white shirt and black suit... *zizzle*

Ok, it's bad enough that I lust after a character... *sigh* I better stop talking now.

Movie, Meeting, Fic-rec, Collages

Friday night I finally went to see The Golden Compass.

I liked it, a lot, and I liked Nicold Kidman in it too. Don't ask me why.

Some of the dialog felt a little strange, but then I'll have to go read the book first. I think I'll pick that set up. :) Second hand books, mind you, if I can find them. I think I can, but if not, then I'll get the new ones. It's not a bad thing to have more books. Better than if I go out and get drunk on Saturday night.

Besides, it doesn't hurt anything to read more, to know more.

Gotta occupy our minds somehow, right.

Oh how I wish my Saturday is my free day.

I mean, I always got asked what I do on my day off. I'd say what day off? The store's close, yes, but it isn't my day off. I might be able to get up late, but I still have to drive people all over the place. And those places aren't where I wanna go.

Saturday night I went to meet with a friend of mine at a small restaurant, it was like 8pm. already. Anyways, her friends came over and we all chatted and stuff. It was fun. Too bad I couldn't go with them on Sunday. I did ask my mom, she said no... and then when I show up for work, she said, I thought you went.

I hate when she does that.

It pisses me off.

But anyhow, I met Cindy for the first time. :) It was cool.

I thought she'd be taller? I don't know. LOL. Actually, I don't really have any preconception of people I chat with online or e-mail with. I tried not to.

We chatted, and I'm glad I got the time to meet her. Too bad we didn't have that much time. I'm so busy these days, it's disgusting.

I'm still waiting for my package. *sigh* I think I'll probably get it next week. *grrr*


The Devil Wears Prada
The Lily and the Crown by Telanu It's a six part A/U story.

Actually I would recommend all her DWP stories.


It's been a while that I do any at all, I'm gonna start now.

And this is my first in a long time. And this is my second one.

December 05, 2007

It's Father's Day today.

And I saw my father for... perhaps, 30 seconds.

Well, I got him a set of bed sheets in cream color soft cotton (the t-shirt kind of cotton) I used to have Hanes one, in white, but they don't fit my bed anymore. Too bad that's it's only the limited edition thing, and they didn't have them in Queen size.. so I only got a set for my dad. He seems to like it, so it's all good. I would've just gotten one set for me, even though they are in King's but they only have the fitted sheets with 2 pillowcases, not flat, so I didn't. (my dad doesn't use the flat so it didn't matter to him)

Oh well.

Anyhow, we went for seafood yesterday, me, my friend, her sister, her sister's friend and the kid frrom her office (just one.. I think I can call her our friend now) Her dad drove and her mom went with us. Her mom was just hilarious, I mean she wanted to go to this restaurant that was closer (she was fighting a battle that's she's already lost, I don't even know why she tried) It was funny.

Food was fresh, still swimming kinda fresh. We had about 4kg for shrimps, some clams a big fish, soft shell crab. Her dad paid for it. We gotta take him out some times. He was paying last time too.. I'm starting to feel bad.

I'm planning on seeing The Golden Compass tonight, I don't care what they said, I mean, to believe in something, or not is my choice, to begin with, and none of other people's business. Those arrogant idiots that think they knew what best for other people.

I'm still working off that cold, couldn't quite shake it off, which is annoying. Can't seem to go anywhere these days, without feeling that headache just the back of my eyes. Grrr..

Oh well, I'm hoping it'll go away by the end of this week.

My package isn't here yet. Man I'm hoping it'll be here this week, probably not, maybe next week.

My mother's purchases today.

My mom always like handmade things (so do I, for that matter) More respect for those that made these things for living, it's not easy and people don't always wanna pay the price of the labor. Sometime it's the value of it and not the value of materials that add up to the price.

I can never do these things for living, I spend far too much money on things. :) I do make paper (recycle, since we got cards and such that got cut up, and will get burn otherwise, a waste if you ask me) and I use those paper to make a book, which I usually just give them to my friends. If they want it that is.

Well, my mother got these today... they made from dried palm leaves, the guy was awesome, my mom bought from him twice.. they are less than a dollar each (US dollar) the legs are made from aluminum can, he told my mom that he sold them to the other place more expensive because the woman didn't seem to care for them (why did she buy them is beyond me) consider the fact that it's all made by hand, so kudos for the guy.

I would post more pix, but maybe later.

And I got the r/c illu that my friend asked me to do as a favor done, it's not that big only 24"x24" much smaller than the other ones I've been making, especially as a portraits. I made them with black matt sticker on white future board (that's what they called it) looks nice if you hold it up to the light, but well, these will be on wall. I probably won't touch it anymore, done is done.

Off to do something else now.

November 23, 2007

Criminal Minds last night ...

Wow, talk about subtext.

Well, you know we do look for it everywhere and quite happy when we found them. :)

That scene with JJ and Prentiss, when Emily reached over and squeezed her hand... and the looks, oh yeah... I'm pleased, really I am. There seems to be more looks pass between them lately, or maybe it's just me and my wishful thinking.

Either way, the more the better, 'cause they definitely fuel some of the fanfic writers with material to work with. Heck knows we have to look for them, I mean, really really look for them.
Well, I'm working on Mirandy fic at the moment, and Shiznat too. Also coding the site, they are all going slowly. I still got menu to finish. I guess I'll get to do them tomorrow, since it'll be quite impossible to get out anyway, all the traffic, I really don't like festival. People flocked in and the congestion, more people means more cars on the road too. Oh well.

I have no plan to go anywhere tomorrow, I'll be happily staying in. I just asked a friend if she had any plan, and she said no, but I know her, there'll be some friends of hers to drag her out the last minute. LOL.

My other friend still unable to come over, I'm holding the r/c illu she asked me to do hostage, I'm not mailing that thing, not after I made it for her. The least she could do is picking it up personally.

It's Friday night and I think I'll get to bed a little earlier than I usually do on Friday (which mean before 4 a.m.) Though I doubt I'll be sleeping. NCIS is looking pretty good right about now.

November 20, 2007

I went and pick up a few things today.

I got last volume of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles (with the box and Mokona). Volume 13 of Eureka 7, vol. 11-12 of MAR.

Got vol. of new Wada Shinji's new series (it's 2006, it's newer than the other ones!) It's Kugutsushi Rin, it's about puppets and puppet masters.

Main character Kasuma Rin, whom the heir to the family of puppet master ran away from school in Germany, (which she'd run away from home to get to in the first place) Her older sister which was made heir in her place and her grandfather died in the mysterious fire.

Once back, Rin found that everything was burned down except the secret storage underground. Everything was in place except 3 puppets. Rin came to a conclusion immediately and knew that instant who was the culprit.

A violinist Asaoka Miyabi.

So, the battle started, the weapon : puppets, which Miyabi stole from Rin's grandfather and had some other puppet maker finished (the puppet were only core), there were 10 altogether, and Miyabi aimed to have all 10 for the reason we are not privy to just yet.

I'm liking the beginning, so I'm hoping the the next part won't take too long to come out. Wish I could get that old series of his, Sukeban Deka, my friend did have the entire series a long time ago, unfortunately I couldn't get my hands on it, since she lost it. And so, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they would reprint it again. Just as several other stories that I couldn't find (too old).

Hopefully, someday.

Now I'm waiting for the bookcases... won't be long now..

I still can't really do the whole unclutter thing.

1. for every 1 piece of thing you bring in, you have to get rid of 2 things.
2. the things that you don't use or even touch for over a year then you should get rid of it.

Now, if I only stick to those 2 then I'll be in good shape, of course, it's easier said than done. Though it's not that bad because I organize it. And I throw out the boxes. Which I usually keep for 2-3 months after I bought things. (in case.)

November 19, 2007

Went to another wedding on Saturday.

I wasn't gonna go, since I was tired, and I didn't get any sleep the night before, but well, a friend called me up an hour before the wedding was suppose to start, so I had to go. Honestly, I wasn't that close to the friend that was married. (as much as she liked to think otherwise) There wasn't even enough table. It was annoying.

The other friends were going some place after, I just didn't have the energy and besides, the place they went, just not my thing. She asked why... I told her to consider several things, first my type of music, I don't dance, and I don't drink. Doesn't work very well, in a club setting.

I'm working on a new layout for the homepage, the layout was simple, extremely so, so now I'm just doing the whole html and writing the body of the pages. Should be done in a couple of days.

I'm trying to write too... just kinda too tired to concentrate lately. I'm gonna try my hand at that prompt on LJ though, it's Mirandy so it should be fun (even if I will agonize over it).

And there's still Shiznat to finish.. :) Oh joy.

November 14, 2007

I got a boxset last night, a Harry Potter boxset.

I wanted to order it, but I didn't I was waiting to see if I can get it here, and apparently I can, so I picked it up last night. I even dragged my mother with me, I don't think she realized how much it costs, but she had some idea of how much it probably would.

To give her credit, she said nothing of it.

Of course I didn't bring the car, I took the motorcycle, so she had to hold it while I rode back. It's rather heavy, well, with 7 books, hardcover, of course it's heavy. I liked it. A lot. Because I never did get the chance to get all of them in Hardcover, I only have the last 4 in hardcover.

So, here's what it looks like. :) The box looks pretty sturdy, although I'm not too fond of the robe on the side, they should've just made it into a catch or handle or something that's not a robe, a couple of pieces of hardware (like brass handle, or even plastic that made to look like one) would look much better. Oh well. I got it at 15% off. So, it wasn't that bad.

Now I'm gonna have to find a place to put it. I'm waiting for 4 boxcases to be finished and deliver at the house. I ordered them, so that they are in the dimension that I wanted, which is enough to put manga in or paperback novels without any wasted space. And glass doors, too, so I don't have to worry about kids getting their hands on them. Then I can transfer all the manga in my bedroom out to the cases and so I have more space.

I got Adaptation last night, still didn't get to watch it yet. But I will. Again Meryl Streep kick... *sigh* I'm planning on ordering Greta Garbo collection, I really liked Ninotchka. She was once voted by the Guinness Book of World Record as the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Anyhow, there's a boxset on so I might get that, otherwise I might just get Ninotchka.

While I'm at it, maybe Marlene Dietrich's movie, too.


November 09, 2007

Finally the internet works!!

The DSL line at the store was out of commission for almost a week, I nearly pull my hair out! The reason being that I forgot to pay the bill last month. (I sometimes lost track of bills.) Well, I had my cousin went and paid the thing, which they should've turned it back on for me, which they said they did, but 3 days later I still could not use it. So I had to called over and over again, until the day before yesterday, they called me up and said that it should work now.

And Voila! It did.

So, now I can entertain myself while minding the store.

On the papercraft note, I decided to make another cryptex, this time it should be neater and cleaner, I'm more careful and also I got one of those circle cutter from Olfa my favorite is the SVR-1 I have 4 of them and a spare of A. They are reliable blades, I love them, and while I'd have to go through a pack of spare blade to finish a job, I would use less than half of that amount with Olfa, they are quite sharp (as my finger could attested to that). I swear by them.

Being the freak that I am, I always have packs and packs of spare blade around.

You never know when you're going to need them. :)

Well, I did the apple off of the same site as the Cryptex one. Still it's not that complicate, and looks quite pretty. :)

Now I better go make a phone call. I still have another 5 squares to cut as well, which I forgot to bring. grrrrrrrrr...

October 29, 2007

I've decided that I'm going to make the Dragon from The Tale of Earthsea over again.

Since the page I got it from scanned the template from the book, I wasn't sure of the sizes, and if they are all in the correct proportion, because my first one I ran into that problem, the scale won't fit over the tale, so if they don't fit the tail, then the rest won't make any different, so I'm making it over again, and this time I'll fit it first before I glue it in.

So, tonight I'm gonna do the menu, as much as I could and then I'll start with the r/c illu of my friend's, but I'll have to get a hold of her first, cause I'm not sure of the size. Otherwise I would've started it awhile back.

Then after that, I'll go back to the dragon.

Quote I really liked today :

'Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that the dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed.' G.K. Chesterton

October 28, 2007

Wedding was yesterday.

My friend's wedding was yesterday, and well, I was the driver. Man, it's like going to the middle of nowhere. The drive was long and none of us really knows the way, so that just made it worse. Other than the really, really, really long drive.

We got lost, and also the wrong turns, we missed one turn, and then we turned at the wrong left, before we got to the place.

It was not my fault!!

I was just a driver.

The backseat drivers should be smacked for those turn, I was trying to watch the road, they were suppose to tell me which turn. And more often than not they told me too late.

Once we got there, the foods were slow in coming and then we left at the end, and then I was till the driver, but this time we went through town, they should've just letting me go that way in the first place, since it was nothing but straight drive (not that I am). We got home about 11:30pm.

My right leg was killing me afterwards, I hate driving long distances. It's not fun. Especially when you don't know where the hell you were going.

On a more uplifting note, Women's Murder Club...

Lindsay said to Cindy, if we are going to be in a relationship then there are ground rules. (relationship!??) Man, more and more subtext slipping through those lips of hers every episode. Grrrrrrrrr..

Makes me happy though.

October 25, 2007

Done with Cryptex.

I found a site (through another site) it's a papercraft site with a Cryptex!

It was awesome, I mean, to design that and it actually make sense and work (with a set password and stuff) Took me about a week, because I started with the key (that's what the guy called it, it's the piece that has the top and the core) one night and then the next night I did the second key (a piece with the bottom which has the 'lock') then I had to make 5 dials. So, I did that one per night. Because my neck was killing me and I think I can cut a relatively round circle with an X-acto knife and freehand now.

And well, here is my piece. I'm quite proud of it. Now if only I could finish that damn dragon!

Speaking of dragon, I'm still looking for a suitable one so I can cut onto a vinyl sticker and put on my laptop as a decor. :) I think that picture from the book Dragonhenge will make a good starting point, but well, I still have other things to do before that.

And a menu too.

Today I bought a new journal, it is pretty good with leather cover and very nice and thick handmade paper. I'm happy with it, finally, I rarely find a good one that I like, so this is good. I mean I can draw on this, pencil, pen and ink, watercolor. Not that I would do watercolor, I'm just too lazy to clean up afterward, so it's either pen and ink or most likely pencil. I think the reason I never pick up watercolor or oil or acrylic painting because of that, the fact that I will have to clean up. Just not very appealing to me. That and I never get a proper introduction to them. Oh well, someday, when I have more time, I guess, as of now I'll stick to what I know, mostly.

Cin!! Well, I have to see if there's anything going on in Dec, what's the date of the competition?
Maybe I can take a drive out, but I won't know for sure.
My friend's wedding is on Saturday.

We went for seafood on Tuesday, my friend's dad was driving, and her mother went too, his truck was a half-cap, so there were her parents, 2, my friend and her sister, 2, me, a kid from the office and her sister's friend, there were 7 in total, at first my friend sat in the back, and then well, it rain!

So, she moved inside and the poor kid had to sit by himself in the back, good thing it didn't rain for long, or hard. So, we got there, the four of use stuffed into the back like a tuna in a can. LOL.

When we got there, we ate, and ate... and well.. ate.

Shrimp, mostly, shrimp 3kg. of it.

Soft-shell crabs, clams, squids. So fresh they were still swimming when we picked them out.

It was great!! With our hands, no spoon, or fork!

So, on the way back, all 5 of us were sitting in the truck bed. LOL... It was an hour ride (more or less) by the time we got back, my face was numb from the wide and hair. It was fun, though. She said we'll do it again in, maybe, two months. :)

I hope another friend could join us, actually, if she came with us, we would've brought another car. Which would be mine.

Well, I'll be driving on Saturday, anyhow, hopefully we won't get lost.

They are mostly all married now, what am I gonna do?!?!

Well, good for them, and good for me!


I do not wanna get married, the thought of having to share everything with someone irks me. I cannot, as I've found, be reasonable with my space. I can't even imagine sharing a computer. LOL..

I'm just that bad.

October 21, 2007

I was watching the new ep of Women's Murder Club.

Man, I smell fanfiction potential. LOL.

I had to listen twice, the scene when Cindy told Lindsay that she would miss her if she (Cindy) wasn't around (and I thought there was a little pout too!) And then Lindsay replied, give me a chance to find out.

Also another one was when Cindy said that she's a report and a cop has to answer to the public, before Lindsay gave her a little info, then she said that if she sees the info she gave her in the papers then she (Cindy) gonna have to answer to her, which is so much worst than the public. (ummmmmm.... I can see some kinky story for this one)
Man, her voice!


I found a site (Glue2 Chronicle) that has Cryptex papermodel last night. I was making it, well, not done yet, since I have to be more careful about it, I did the first and second key and I have to do the dial (there're 5 of them)

Maybe it'll come out ok, I don't know.

I've been doing a lot of papermodel lately, I just feel like doing something with my hands. I'm gonna have to do R/C illustration for a friend of mine, probably start tonight, I think it'll be 24"x24" it's probably gonna take about 9 pieces, (or maybe I'll make 'em in smaller square, then it'll double the amount and so, it'll be fun (for me to watch) for them to figure it out. :) Because some of them won't have more than a few black lines.

I'm gonna do a new layout for the blog too, I have AJ Cook, and it's half way done already. I'm thinking about background, I think I'm gonna keep it simple.

Well, so far my Olympus FE-280 works great! I took picture in the dark (the only light in the room was a lamp on my desk) and I could barely see my dog and the pic came out really good. No blur, and I can see the details clearly.

After I bought the camera, I went to and look up the review. I actually didn't mean to, really, since I bought it already and it doesn't really help anything since I can't return it. But the first review was pretty bad, the guy said that it doesn't work the way it was advertised, that the point and shoot doesn't shoot and he took the photo at the party, nothing came out clear. Took forever for it to take the photo even though the flash went off several seconds before. He said he's gonna return it and get a new Sony instead.

Make me feel bad, damn it.

I've always liked Olympus, my previous cameras were Olympus, so, this made me regret getting it, a little. But then I compared that to my own experience, and found that it wasn't like the guy's review, the cam took less than 2 seconds to turn on completely. (I cound 1-2 and the LCD came on and the cam was ready) All the photo I took came out good, no blur at all, even though I was taking a photo of my little nephew.

And you know how babies are, they never stay still for a second.

I took pictures of my dogs and they came out good. Just point'n shoot.

Then I found a second review that agreed with me, afterward. :)

So far I liked it, a lot. So, in the end, I guess that is all that matters.

I got some pictures of my newly arrived order.

1. Season 1&2 of Supernatural
2. Season 2 of Criminal Minds
3. Music of the Heart
4. ... First Do No Harm
5. Fist Wives Club

I'll get them here later.

October 16, 2007

New show to follow.

I sorta stumbled upon a new drama 'Women's Murder Club' it's really an accident, because I wouldn't have watch it otherwise. And surprise, surprise! Angie Harmon. I was kind of glad that I watched, :) and she played a cop!! I liked her in Law and Order, but I think I'll like her as a cop more. So far so good. (well, it's been only 1 ep) And it has serial killer, so it's even better, I like on going story line as well as the end in 1 ep ones. :) Something to look forward to.

Like I don't have enough to watch already. I finally finished with the Nodame Cantabile Live Action, my friend should be picking it up soon, and as for watching, I'm not sure if I will have the chance.

Lately, my mother's been monopolizing my Iomega Screenplay during the night, she's been watching A Haunting on it. I did want to order it for her, but apparently the DVD was not well made at all, the narration wasn't there. In my opinion the narration makes all the different. Without it, it wouldn't be as good.

I've been reading a lot of The Devil Wears Prada fanfiction a lot. And well, I think I have Mirandy on the brain!

I'm trying to write more though, I'm thinking that if I at least keep a notebook near me I will probably be more productive. Well, the D.I.Y Planner is a good place for looking for DIY planner, found a few templates that would work well, but I also have lots of notebooks around anyway, so, I probably will try both ways and see how it goes.

October 13, 2007

My new toy tonight...

I needed a new camera, well, I lost mine for years now and I've been using my mother's little Nikon, which for some reason doesn't work anymore. I don't think I dropped it (or I would've remembered) but I can't really be sure since my backpack wasn't in my possession several times last week. (my mother was holding it for me, and well, if she tossed it on the floor, I wouldn't have known that)

So I finally decided that I'd get one for me... I saw a commercial for Panasonic Lumix on TV several times and I thought, cool! It looked nice on TV, but when I saw the actually camera I didn't feel that 'thing' that make me wanna buy it. I don't know. It just didn't do it for me. Then I saw the Olympus one. I liked Olympus and it looked pretty good and pretty small, enough to tug into smaller pocket of my backpack and not being a bother. And so I decided to get it.. it cost me about $233. I figure, whether I buy it now or a week after, it'll still cost me, so despite the fact that I just ordered several things from I just put it on the card.

I didn't get the pic of the actual camera because of the obvious reason. :)

I ordered several things this month (I hadn't ordered anything in several months now, to minimize the shipping, I would keep a list and put them in one order) This time I got...

1. Supernatural season 1&2
2. Criminal Minds season 2
3. Music of the Heart (because it's Meryl Streep and I'm on Meryl Streep kick right now)
4. ... First Do No Harm (and Meryl Streep)
5. The Fist Wives Club (because I wanna see Bette Midler)
6. The Harlequin Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series #15

The package should get here by next week (the estimate was between the Oct 25 and Nov 5) Well, I don't know, I hope it gets here soon. I can't wait to see the package and stuff for the series, and the new Anita Blake book (although it reads more and more like soft porn these days) I don't know, I'm just one of those that if I get them in series then I'll keep buying, even when I lost interest sometimes.

I'm also dabbing into some Papercraft lately. I'm making the Dragon from The Tale of Earthsea right now.. I got it from .. Tehanu's Flight and I'm taking my time with it, slow build seems to be the best way to go about this, since I tend to hurry things up for now reason other than I want it to be done. But if I do that then it won't work. I really wanna finish this.

October 05, 2007


I just got a hold of Stephen King's Desperation, still watching it at the store... I'm not sure that's gonna fly. Seeing how I get interrupted every 2 minutes. Well, we'll see if I can watch it I guess. A good thing is it has Annabeth Gish, I liked her a lot from The X-Files. Don't know why, I just do. :)

Also watched Criminal Minds season 3 episode 2.

I do hope that Hotchner stayed, because I could just see how it would suffer (the team) if he's gone too, since Gideon is gone now. (hopefully he'll be back) and I like Prentiss, better than Elle, I think Elle was too cocky, and a bit self-centered for my liking. Just one of those things. The episode was good, see how the team would work (or really, wouldn't) when it got separated, and the section chief wasn't so great now that she got to see everything first hand. (big shock there... really)

Is there trouble in paradise for Hotch, who's that calling and hanging up when he answered the phone... um.. Well, I do like the show a lot, so this is fun for me.

I got all ep of Nanoha strikerS and I still don't get the chance to see them yet. I'm looking forward to seeing Stardust though. Tomorrow, I'm going with a friend. Well, it's not set in stone yet, but we'll see.

I have an idea for a little laptop decor. A little dragon. We'll see if it'll materialize. (huh!) Right now I'm once again looking at home Wireless Networking.

October 02, 2007

My friends and I are planning on making some brownies today.

Well, not really from scratch, because, you know, we can't possibly pull that one off!!

Went to see Resident Evil : Extinction.

I liked it, and the fact that there are hundreds of Alice clones!

Harem!! *cough*

I enjoyed the fighting sequence too, although this had the feel of a filling before another part, but still, not a bad bridge. I can't wait to see the army of Alice's storming the HQ of Umbrella Corps. Sounds like fun!! And lots of explosion too!

Before I went and saw the movie, I came across a toy store... yeah, I know.. it's like a dead trap for me. So, I spent most of my money on a 1/6 model of Shimuca (or rather Simca like on the side of the box) from Airgear. It was beautiful, I just couldn't help myself.

I also wanted to get Saber, but they didn't have the one in goth loli with sword, instead they have the Saber from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia holding a bag of hamburger. Cute, but not yet. :)

Next I'm getting Ringo!!

September 28, 2007

Series premiere

In the past couple of days, I had the pleasure of watching 3 spanking new episodes of my favorite shows. Bones, Shark, and Criminal Minds. Of course I've been rather preoccupied that I didn't really have the attention required to watch them. But so far they were all good.

Also I finally got the rest of the episodes of Close to Home (starring Jennifer Finnigan) So, I have plenty to watch for the next day or two, but at the same time, I'm suppose to be translating something as a favor to my PT.

And I have a book I wanna finish.


Well, I'm reading The Devil Wears Prada and so far I think that Andrea in the book was rather disgusting and Miranda was well, not as likable as in the movie, but I don't think she was any more of a bitch than in the movie (kudos to Meryl Streep, she was excellent!) Good thing they cleaned up Andy in the movie, or I would hate her soon as I saw her open her mouth.

In the book she was not very sympathetic in her behavior. I couldn't feel bad for her, not even once.

Well, I still have a little over 100 pages to go, it might get better. Or rather her personality might get better.

Or not.

September 26, 2007

Surprise, surprise!!

Yesterday I got a couple of calls that I never thought I would ever going to get, and no, it was not a good thing.

One of them was my cousin, which I grew up with but didn't see for over ten years already. And he called me to borrow some money. All I can say is HELL NO!

I don't have the money to be throwing around, especially with someone I know I won't get any of it back, so no way in hell. I'm not that much of a masochist. I have my limit.

And then another call, from LCF, man, my gut is wicked nervous right then, and not in a good way. I didn't think of her for so long and I didn't expect to ever hear from her ever again. (and I thought that if I ever did it would be too soon, apparently, I shouldn't have thought that) It's been over 2 years, though I did have a feeling that I would be hearing from her.

Anyhow, moving on.

I went to see 1408 last night, it was good, I enjoyed it a lot. Very character driven, and it was like watching someone that's about to lose their mind and entering into the realm of insanity. Like watching people going slowly insane, it was good. :) There were a few moments here and there that gave me a scare, and that's saying a lot! I don't usually jump from seeing something popped up in a movie. But this movie made me jump a couple of times.

I did question my own sanity for going to a horror movie at 0:40am. And now I'm suffering for it, since I went to bed at 4:30am and then woke up at 7am went back to bed 8am and woke up again at 9:30am. I so hate my life right now.

Speaking of movie, I'm very much looking forward to Resident Evil : Extinction. I think Sat night will be a good night for it, :)

On the other note, I dropped by the bookstore and bought me a copy of The Devil Wears Prada last night, it's a good thing that the place close at 11pm, since I got out of the gym around 10:45pm. So far I enjoy the book.

I originally gonna put small piece of Shiznat did with the same technique, but then a pig center piece wouldn't hurt, and a variety was a good thing too, so it's Shiznat from Mai Otome and SMG, I think I'm gonna have to dig up the Eliza Dushku one out and also the Hellsing one.. somehow I don't think I have enough space for that now.

I guess it's the smaller ones from now on.. (or medium size, nothing too big)

I'm watching The Devil Wears Prada. I really like Meryl Streep from this movie, so I'm thinking I might get a book. :)

September 20, 2007

Watching : ST : Voyager

I finally got the rubber cover grill thing (the kind they use to hang stuff in stores) And I had to cut it up to size (I thought they would have more sizes, but apparently they did not) My hands hurt from it, but it got it cut and I put the bricks and cords from both the HDD external on it and tied it up with zipties, just so I can get them off of the floor (easier to clean up) and I really don't want a nest of wire to clutter up around the HDD external (the drives were hot enough without anything around) it improves the air circulation immensely, which is what I wanted.

And after that I still got a piece big enough, so I brought it to the store. Originally, I had the DSL modem and the excess wires and cords in the drawer, which of course, doesn't have any air circulation at all. I couldn't leave the drawer open or someone will definitely trip on it. Not a very good thing, seeing how it'll probably be my mother.

So, I tied up the cords and modem onto the grill and then the power strip, and the LAN line, as well as the excess phoneline. All of them quite long, but it's better now and the modem won't get too hot anymore. I put up a 3M hook to hold the grill upright, it was a small hook, but since it doesn't have to hold up any weight, but simply hold it in place, I'm not really worry. The mess looks much, much better now, I think.

Now I'm thinking I should get one of those twist tie thing. Tomorrow I think.

September 15, 2007

I went to an Aikido class today. Actually, it was on a trial basis at the gym that I am a member (Sports Club) The membership of which I am about to run out. LOL. I'll continue, I'm pretty sure now, and the other one I'll just give it to my sister. The transfer wasn't complicated so, it should be fine.

I liked the class, a lot, I mean I've always wanted to try Aikido, and this was pretty cool. And I miss the physicality of it, after not practicing Karate for 3 years, I miss it a lot. This will be good, I'm not sure how it's gonna go, because the trail period end in Oct, so, hopefully they continue, I'll even pay extra for it, it'll be really good too... Any self-defense classes are good, I think, for just about everything, it helps with the stress, a lot, as I've learned that first hand. :)

I'm watching Close to Home season 1, I kinda like it and I think Jennifer Finnigan is cute as a button (well, she got that, blonde blue eyed, so...)

I got a new HDD external drive which is 250 GB. So, I'll keep some of my anime on it, those that I keep till the dvd's out. (if they ever gonna be released here.) Just stuffs that are pretty much filled up my hard drive.

They have 3 colors, and I picked the blue one, pretty color and I really like the blue light too! I got it a week or so ago, and I simply didn't have the energy to get to the back of my cpu to plug it in, and I finally get to tonight.

One of the receptionists was in the accident this morning, apparently she did not show up (which I had no idea since I was dragged out of bed to drive my mother to see the doctor) And they had been trying to get a hold of her and couldn't. I was saying that something must've happened, because she doesn't just miss work, not without a good reason. And Voila! we got a call from her sister that she's in the hospital. I guess tomorrow I'll be driving my aunt and my mom to see her.

Mom picked up a bunch of orchids and plants today, my aunt got fishes, me... I get to drive all day! Not fun, let me tell you, not fun at all.

September 09, 2007

We had a house warming of sort yesterday.

It was more of a religious thing anyway, took so much time and energy to prepare and it was all over by 1pm. My mother and my aunt spent all last week preparing for it, cooking, cleaning (mostly it's dessert they were making, but you know how much time those take!?) So, it's me being chained to the store (technically speaking) for the entire day. Most of the relatives were there yesterday and some of my parents acquaintances and family friends. I spent the entire time sitting outside with my cousins, chatting.

Afterwards we ran over to the computer store with one of my cousins, she wanted Nintendo DS. But at the moment she's saving up for it, so in the mean time she wanted to check out the price and also get a game. She borrowed mine for now. I haven't been playing with it for a long while now so, I have no idea what's going on with DS these days.

I better looking around, I guess.

We also went to the shooting range, well, with my other cousin that is. we shot about
2 boxes of ammo (that's 100 bullets), we got .22 and .38 the .22 was a bit heavy, surprisingly. It was fun though. We'll do it again soon, or so I hope. They also have horse back riding and base jumping and clay shooting too. Maybe we'll try one of those next time. Though I still want my archery set.

So, the next stage, I added another piece to it last night, and since I got them cut at a different time, I ran into a little trouble of the pieces ran into each other, which really wasn't that hard to rectify, I just had to cut whatever piece that overlapped out. It looks ok, I think. There'll be another piece to add at the bottom, and after that I might leave it alone for maybe a month or two, cause I kinda wanna put Integra Hellsing on this. :)

My friend asked if I can do one for her, well, I could. When she show up that is. LOL.

Then another one of my friend would've argue that I could get it cut by machine and it'll look better. I guess I could, but what's the fun in that?!

Tonight, another piece.

dressing up my accer, stage 1

dressing up my accer, stage 1
Originally uploaded by Xavacid
I was looking at a bunch of MacBook that got some laser etching, and they looked good! I really liked it, unfortunately I don't have Mac and even if I did, I still won't be able to get it laser etched (not that I would, I like the option of changing the look if I want, and laser etching will take that option away)

What I have is Accer Aspire 4710G, which has textured finished, The top has that polished reflective strip of black, so I figure I could do something. I bought several sheets of vinyl stickers in black, as well as clear contact paper in rolls! My first thought was using the clear contact paper, however, it doesn't work very well, when the surface is already textured, (if it's the glossy finished then the clear contact paper would've worked very well.) So, I moved on and tried the black stickers instead. Before I did all this, I took a small piece of each ones and stuck it on the laptop then pulled out to see if it'll leave the glue residue on it, which none of them did. (if there's residue I might not do it at all)

Then I picked the glossy back vinyl and cut out the image by hand (with my trusty x-acto.) Then I transfered it with masking tape, almost lose small pieces several times, but well, I tried to slow down and not just ripping the tape out (or I might have to start over)

This is only the first stage, I'm adding a few more things and I might try the textured sticker one, to see if it'll give me the impression dimension. And I think I might add 'cogito ergo sum' (I think therefore I am), or maybe something else, I'm thinking... but everything can be changed so it's not a big deal, only a bit of time that will be lost.

I did this at about 1:30 in the morning, cut and clean and stuck on the laptop itself, well, I ended up going to bed around 4am.

If I just go ahead and cut without stopping to read this and that and watch 'How Clean Is Your House?' I probably finished it quicker, but who's checking? LOL.

September 02, 2007

Continue from last night :

Ok, so I found this store iStudio, they sell Mac accessories and other things, so I got Solar Charger there (and I already knew the moment I saw it that this's going to be my favorite store!)

They also have that laptop stand and such, a bunch of comp accessories and so... I'm in love with it

I did buy a bugweed pillow as well, expensive, but well, it was rather worth it. Only a night and I felt the difference, I didn't wake up with a kink in my neck this morning and I slept through the night. (except when Gizmo barked to get some water). I'd get one for mom, but she's just the type to not use it. She's just that stubborn about things. And if she won't use it, then well, as expensive as it is if she doesn't use it then it is really expensive, if she uses it, then it is worth the money.

I'm still contemplating the wireless networking, even if just so I can play psp online... or maybe not, so far I don't see the point just yet.

I watched The Bridge to Terabethia today. I liked it. With the cover you might expect another Nania, but this isn't. It's about 2 kids, outcast, one because she was a new girl and have rather strange look at things, and the other was poor, they paired up and created a world of their own. I think my niece liked it. But she fell asleep. LOL.

September 01, 2007

Today was my day off, actually I should say that it's the day that the store closes, however, I don't actually get it off, the only difference is, I get to sleep late, but that's about it. So, I had to take my aunt shopping (getting things for my house, and such, still I'm a driver) And it usually before I get my breakfast/lunch.

Anyhow, I decided to go to the movie, 'cause I want to. Went to see 'Invasion' stared Nicole Kidman. It was good, I was kinda surprise, well, a little. It started like typical Alien invasion movie, (something like Puppetmaster came to mind) There's a sense of urgency throughout the movie, which I liked, a lot. Kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn't get bored, although there were times that the movie was a bit confusing, but I do think that it fitted the state of mind that the main character was in.

Nicole Kidman looked pretty good in it, too. So, it's a plus. I like her in these kind of role, her desperation and exhaustion was palpable (well, makeup does help, with those red rimmed eyes, tousled hair) The way her face barely contain the feeling when the character had to be out among the Alien.

The transformation from human to alien during REM sleep was not overdone. I've seen a lot of movies that just pushed the gore just a bit too much. This one was on the minimal side. Though there was this one scene when the Press conference was going on and the waiters at the back were basically barfing into the water, YUCK!! And I was eating, too.

The movie was shorter than I'd expected it. A little under 2 hours (maybe I watched those movies too much, the ones that were just won't work under 2 hours, always 2 and a half or more) And with a happy ending. LOL. I half expected to see her turned and all hope lost at the end, even though I knew it wasn't going to be that way. And it wasn't, everything got saved in the nick of time.

When the movie was over it was before 11pm. So it was pretty good, since it wasn't too late and meant that I will get to bed before 3am. I've learned that the later I get home is the even later I'd go to bed. I once got home at 4:30am. from my friend's house, we were talking and just completely forgot the time, anyhow, I got home and still I got cleaned up and other things, I ended up really going to be after 5am. Me and my bad habit, I guess.

I also found a store which, I think I'd become a regular. LOL. I do love toys. I was thinking of getting something to raise up the bottom of my laptop and I found these little things they sold there, perfect, really perfect. Well, that's a story for tomorrow. :)

I'm gonna go watch Mai Otome (again) now.

These are what I carry in the backpack to and from the store everyday, I took them all out the night before to inspect how dirty my backpack is. And well, it's pretty bad, all those dirt and stain. It's time I wash it, I think. But before that I need a replacement because I do need these.

There's my DCSoesCo. backpack, Staedtler triplus fineliner in sets of 10 colors, my Ipaq phone, Olfa silver exacto knife, pocket watch, ipod nano, my Oakley whisker, iomega screenplay, 3 sets of keys, a dvd case that carry one dvd or another, my notebook with black staedtler tucked in the spiral for writing fanfic and whatnot, my Nikon digital cam that really belonged to my mother, but she doesn't use it, so I do.

They don't weight very much altogether, really. And I travel to work by motorcycle, so to have these on me, weren't that much of an ordeal.

I would be carrying my laptop too, except I left that at the store, so I don't have to carry it back and fort everyday.

Oh yeah, and I also take my dog everyday, he sits in the front basket. (and no he doesn't try to jump.)

I took the pic because, um.. I don't know, too many visits to lifehacker I guess, so I wanna see what clutter do I carry around with me. (and something to blog about, in case Jamie is reading..LOL)

Well, I went and pick up a soft bag for my laptop yesterday and saw a laptop backpack that I wanted, it has lots of pocket and looking pretty good too!

On the other note, I'm about to start watching Nodame Cantabile, my friend recommended it (her friend recommended it to her) The anime is 23 ep long I believe, and the Live-action is 11 ep. I still have lots ot catch up though. I should really start with watching all my Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles first.

Claymore manga still isn't out yet, I got it up to vol 11. The characters are pretty nice looking and the story line reminded me of Berserk. Let's hope it doesn't drag out as long as Berserk though, it gets tiring now. It could've end nicely about half way back. There're a few manga that are like that. (ex. Dragonball, even St. Seiya)

I watched first ep. of Zombie Loan the other day, it's by Peach Pit, the same that gave us Rozen Maiden (and I really like that series) so I'm gonna continue watching this one too.

I'm waiting with my batted breath for Mai Otome Zwei 4, it should be out on the 24th and so since I can't understand Japanese I'm waiting for Fansub to come out. Now, my friend's friend is coming back from Japan in a couple of months, I think I'm gonna ask her to ask him to get all 4 for me. Maybe, if it's not too much trouble that is, since he's not my friend. Maybe I'll just order Amazon Japan. Man, so many things to get. And I need a set of pen nibs too. I lost the entire set a while back. (damnit!)

I'm broke.

August 28, 2007

My aunt got the TV for now.

I was trying to watch The Dead Zone, but well, didn't work out very well, since I was trying to change the water in my fishtank at the same time. What I got in my fishtank, let's see... I got 2 gold fishes (5 color ones) 1 angel fish, 3 little ones (not sure what they are called) All in all, I got 6 fishes. In Chinese numerology 6 means easy and smooth, all the way) Although I thought of getting 8 which means prosperity, the tank was rather small, so I don't wanna stuff another 2 in.

I went to the mall on Saturday, which is normal, since we have to buy things for the house anyhow, they have the coffee-table fishtank on display. One of them was really nice, half of it made into a small water plants garden which use to clean and recycle the water, the waste from the fishes will be use as fertilizer for the plants. I'd get one if I have space for it in the house, and no kids! (my 2 niece and nephew will definitely like it a little TOO much)

I got to watch a little of Zombie Loan episode one last night, only a little, since we were closing the store, I guess I'll watch it again later on, when I have no interruption. I also got Pan's Labyrinth, and again my aunt and mother watched it, I didn't. But what I've seen was good.

Last night I read an article saying that those that play on the comp or watching tv before bed will feel as if they don't get enough sleep, even though they get the same amout of Zzz as the one that didn't. That our body fooled itself that they don't get enough rest. Um...

Still before is the only quiet enough time for me to actually play anything on the comp w/o interruption, so I can't help it.

August 26, 2007

Watching : Mai Otome vol. 9

Well, right now I got a bunch of Anime that simple being put on back burner for one reason or another. Like Eureka 7, I bought it up to vol. 8 now and I'd yet to watch any of them. Same goes for Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, and then I picked up Rayearth. Yeah, I have more things to watch than the actual time to watch them. At least now So You Think You Can Dance is finished, so I won't have to load them and stuff.. still there's The Dead Zone, Monk that I'm watching. Also on the anime side Claymore, El Cazador de la Bruja. A friend of mine recommended Nodame Catabile. I'm deciding.

I picked up 'Happily N'ever After' the other day and watched it tonight. I liked the story, I do, although the pace was slow for my liking, but I do understand that it was made for a younger group of audience (kids) so, the movie needs to be at slower pace, (read somewhere that if you let children watch something face pace, their attention span will get shot to shit... ) Anyhow, while I was watching I was thinking.. Frida (the stepmother) totally wanted little (Cinder)Ella. LOL. Must be all the femmeslash I read! I actually have an idea for the fanfic too.. how sick is that!

I might just write it. Who knows. I've been writing things that didn't get post for a while now. I'm trying to go back DL again, but with all my files lost on my last comp crash... that just tough, so I guess I won't even try to remember what I've wrote, but just write the new scene, otherwise it'll take me eternity to do it.

And also new layout, yes, I'm deciding what I wanna do with it this time... which series or anime I should use as starting point. Another Shizuru maybe, or Natsuki. Or maybe Bellatrix. :) Also the layout for the homepage, which is long overdue. Probably another Fuffy, or maybe the Ella from Happily N'ever After. I feel so uninspired these days.

Also, I've been trying to get my workspace organized, something that's hard to do since I have more books in here than I should, so my next plan was to get some bookcases built, those won't be the store bought ones, since they are too deep for my need, most of the books that will go in there will be manga, and paperbag novels. Other ones that will not fit in those can stay in the shelves in my room. The shelves will be located in front of my brother's room down to my sister's since it's one continuous piece of wall, that will be enough for all the manga. I still have some in bags sitting on the floor due to the fact that I have no space in the shelves to put them.

I cleared a lot of things off of my desk, and made a monitor stand so the monitor is more my eye level and the keyboard could go underneath it, giving me space to write I wrapped up most of the cables, doesn't look as nice as I would've wanted, but it's better than the clutter I had before. It was a rat nest!

Of course, if I could get rid of the stuffs that I have then it'll be much better, but well, I just couldn't. LOL. I have to go through the stuff that I could throw away and just chuck those. Like boxes of the things I bought, speakers and games and stuff. I should get rid of that PS2 box too as well as printer box, since I won't need them. This weekend I guess.

August 21, 2007

Watching : Premonition

OK, I know I should be paying more attention to the movie, since I've turned it on for the 2nd time without really watching (no, I didn't finish the first time either.)

I'm gonna do a new layout for the blog as well as the homepage, because it's been a really long while that I did anything remotely creative. (yeah, ok, a really long while isn't even begin to cover it)

Saw Rush Hour 3 last night with 2 of my friends (no, I don't have that many, and I'd rather have a handful of friends than a bunch of people that will only share in your glory but never misery)

Another friend of mine is currently stressed to the max, what with her mother's problem that she had to take on and other things, if she'd told me about the renting earlier than she did (maybe only 2 days earlier) She would've been moving in and settled by now (well, we may have to fix a lot of things before that I'm not sure of the state of the house, since I haven't seen it yet) As far as I know, the bathroom needs work, but it'll still be done before this (been what, 2 months?)

Anyhow, we'll see what happens, she was suppose to be moving since 2 days ago, and I was suppose to go help her clean, but well, didn't happen yet, although, there's another place she's looking into.

Well, best of luck I guess.

I went and picked up Rayearth vol. 1, MAR vol. 9, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles season 2 vol. 3.

Now, I'll have to get Magic Knight Rayearth since I never really get them in the first place, I guess I could have my aunt pick them up for me.

What do I want.. um..

I do want a pair of new shoes. (Dr. Marten's, possibly) a new jacket, I guess I'll have her pick them up for me, and if she has space left then it's MEDIUM, Supernatural. I want Spiderman 3 dvd and Pirates of the Caribbean 3 but they come out the end of Oct, which will be too late. Oh yeah and Harry Potter boxset (7 books) If it's not too heavy that is.

Um... what should I tell her... grrrrrrrrr..

August 17, 2007

Watching : The 5th Dimension

I went to see Bourne Ultimatum tonight. It's pretty good, I like the action sequences and all that, but still, it reminded me the reason why I didn't go see the first 2 in the theater. The main character bugged me. Immensely. It's not even the impossibility that bothered me, it's the way his character was. I can't really explain it, but damn I wanted him dead by the end of the movie, too bad he wasn't.

Well, at least I have something else to look forward to, Resident Evil : Extinction. Oh yeah, next month, but before that I wanna try to make for Hairspray next week.

Also just saw the preview for the new Jodie Foster movie The Brave One. I almost don't care what the movie was about if she was in it, almost. But I will go see this one. Definitely.

Bought a speaker for Ipod, originally I wanted to get JBL, which cost an arm and 2 legs. In the end I got something else by Techlines, the sounds was not bad, and since I don't intend to really blast my way through the house, it's good enough. As for a better speakers, I'll considered it, when I listen to it constantly with it, which I don't.

Listening : Strength [X OST]

I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow this afternoon, just in time too, my neck was killing me.

Well, the people that I thought would die, did, and people that I thought would live did (for the most part anyway.)

I enjoyed the book, I wish we get to know what happened to the Malfoy (I mean beyond huddling together at the end of the book, at least we know that Narcissa and Lucius have hearts, and Snape did love someone... )

Love was his downfall, really.

I might go back and watch X/1999 again. :) Despite the fact that I haven't watch Eureka 7 yet. I should. And I only got about half way through Tsubasa Chronicle. Well, they released season 2 already, so I'm gonna have to go pick the next volume up (I do hope that it is out) And also the last volume of Mai Otome. I wish someone would release Marimite here already. Be it the light novel or the anime or manga. Something, after all, they did release the light novel in Germany (If I read the mail right)

Man, I'm tired... grrrrrr...

July 22, 2007

Watching : Criminal Minds

I got my desktop back, finally, this time it was rather quick, and the first thing I did was to install my anti-virus and update it. :) I learned my lesson.

Ok, so I tied up and wrapped most of my wires. (there's still some clutter, but it was better now, now what I need is a couple of corkboards. Also got my wireless keyboard and mouse earlier today, if the old keyboard didn't die on me, I wouldn't have bought this new one, but it's time I guess, and this will save me the clutter. It's Logitec Cordless Desktop Ex 110. Next thing I wanna do is a charging station, so I'll have to get some 3rd party usb charger for Ipod and another one entirely for my ipaq. What I'll need.

1. box (plastic, maybe I'll make one from cardboard paper, or get one of those photobox thing)
2. USB chargers.
3. The rest I can find around my own room. (knife, papers, etc.)

Then I wanna just make a monitor stand, so I have a place to shove the keyboard into when I need the space to write. My desk is rather small, so I need all the space I can get. I got the idea from to use a shelve and 4 pvc pipes since I couldn't find the monitor stand to fit my need. (too wide) Well, gotta do what we gotta do, right.

At least I organized my cords.

Got Harry Potter and The Deadly Hollow on Saturday morning, and well, I got to page 23 and no more because I have to do the driving duty and my friend is visiting, so I didn't touch the book yet.

July 20, 2007

Watching : Deja Vu

Well, my desktop (Phobos) is out to be reformatted, among other things, and so now I'm on my brand spanking new laptop, it's an Acer Aspire 4710G, which I've just picked up on Monday. I've been meaning to get it since new year (yeah, it's been that long) So, I finally got it, and well, I'm taking it to the store, to be used there, of course it'll consist of me surfing the web and read and write on it, while my mother plays solitair on it. It'll replace my other laptop which is a Dell that is about 4 years old, it still running fine, really, I just want a new one, and it's about time too... I still didn't take the plastic on the top off yet, but I'm considering some stickers..

Nah... it'd have to be a really cool sticker for me to put on this thing, I like things clean.

I'd my friend that I'd let her borrow that Dell for her to use for now, since she and her roommate is having problem, actually she didn't have problem, her roommate did, the kind that will probably put them on the different part of the country. The long story short was that her roommate (which once was her gf.) told her parents she won't go back home, she's gonna stay where she was and find work for a couple of years before she go home to help out, which really I do understand that, I mean they got her brother at home right now.. (which really didn't mean much from what I understand) But now, she's acting childish and stuff, now that it gets difficult. (short on money and shit) so now she's finding a reason to go home, which she's looking to my friend to provide. Although she still won't say it outright that she wanted to go home.

In truth I don't think she wanted to, but she doesn't want to make her own life difficult, which being at home will definitely prevent that. Now that she sees, really see how hard it will be. I understand her motive, but that doesn't mean she could drag my friend through shit for it. You don't wanna stay, don't, don't make other people suffer with you.


I just found Lifehacker And found some really nicely organized home office, so I've decided that I'll organize and try to maximize my desk (which is rather small) space, first I am taking care of those clutter of wires. Time for a new set of keyboard and mouse too. so that's lesst 1 wire (I'm getting wireless desktop set thing from Logitec) I'm considering getting those wiretrack thing (the one you use running along the baseboard to conseal the wires) Maybe some pegboard, or corkboard. Let's what I can get tomorrow, I need to pick up a bunch of ziptie too. the one I got before were too small.

I also want to set up wireless network, just for my room, so I can hook up the game console to the net too. um... gotta save up the money, maybe a month or two.. gotta do some research too. Although the wireless gateway and adaptor are cheaper nowaday.

So much to do and so little time..

Tomorrow morning, picking up Harry Potter and The Deadly Hollow. :)

July 19, 2007

Watching : Kidnapped

I'm sending my pc out to be fixed. (worm!! I got worm!!!) Life sucks, but not that bad since I just got my brand spanking new laptop, it's an Acer 4710G, so, I'll still get to play, even though my pc is out. This will give me the opportunity to take care of the clutter I have under my desk, though, easier to do when I don't have the cpu sitting there, 'cause I would be too engross in playing than cleaning up. :) I tend to leave things alone when things are plugged in already.

Got some ideas from lifehacker so I'll try a few and see if it will work out well.

My friend is visiting on Saturday, I'm quite happy about that since I haven't seen her much. And we got lots to talk about. The fact that I'm on the phone with her for hours not withstanding. We'll see how that goes, and I think 3M adhesive products will be my good friend, as well as the zipties. :)

July 12, 2007

Watching : MAR

I went to see Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonix last night. It was good, Helen B. Carter did a good Bellatrix in the mad department, she was downright scary man, it's the eyes thing. :)

I'd love to see more explanation in a lot of things, ok, so I've read the book, so I won't need it, but then the movie would be all the more complete if they do, I mean, a friend of mine that went with me haven't read the book yet, so she was a little confused. (like Tonks and Molly was related to Sirius and such.) No, I'm not gonna spoil the movie more than I already did above. :) I'm trying to be polite about that. (not that I think that someone might be reading, cause I don't think anyone's reading my blog. LOL)

I always thought that perhaps, Sirius's willingness to pull Harry into the loop was due to the fact that he saw him as James and not really realizing that Harry was Harry, (and the boy's hero complex can get annoying a lot of times) Anyhow, I still looking forward to the book, so I know how it all is going to end. And it's T - 9 days. :)

July 08, 2007

Watching : Criminal Mind

I went to see Transformer last night.

It was AWESOME!!

I loved it!! I was completely worth the money and time, and I get to see less of those movies lately. (well, I get to see less movie in the theater period.) Oh yeah, nice cars too!! The Camaro, man, if I wasn't so opposed to one of the person that I wanna erase from my whole history, then I would probably foam at the mouth from wanting. (no I'm not a big car person, but I do appreciate the beauty of machine) As it was, I'm pretty happy with the little JAZZ I have.

And the next one on my list if Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonix. 3 days and counting. That and the book!!!! I can't wait for the book!!! Hopefully, we'll get to see more of Narcissa in the last book, and of course Bellatrix. (I love that name!! Bellatrix!!)

Anyway, Stardust looked good too. *sigh* I love summer, so much to see!

June 20, 2007

So... been a while that I get the chance to blog. :)

Let's see... my desktop and laptop went boom at the same time, thus I was without internet access for well, over a week. Drove me up the wall, let me tell you.

To top that off, I lost all my bookmarks and e-mail address, not to mention all my musics and movies, and anime. Luckily I kept the ones I wanna keep on dvd and the external harddrive, or I would've hung myself already.

Um... Mai Otome came out to vol. 7 on dvd, and I'm still waiting on the rest, over a week ago, I picked up a set of seat& headrest cover, neck pillows and safety belt cover for my car (well, after my nephew threw up his milk on my car, I learned my lesson.. better have something that I can take out and wash than having to scrub the damn seat) they are in brown with Baby Taz on them. :) I actually wanna get the one with Garfield, but well they are in yellow, too easy to get dirt on. Nothing in navy blue, or I would've gotten them already, so at the moment deep brown is the best choice for me.

Maybe I'll take a picture so I can show how much of a dork I am.

My friend from way back in high school past away on Friday night, thus I went to the funeral on Saturday, and the last day is tomorrow. So I'll go again. Very surprising really, I mean, of all things, to go in your sleep... oh well, it should mean that she was in no pain. Her funeral looked like a reunion, a bunch of us showed up and well, naturally we chatted, and got a little loud.

On the other note, I am sick, the funeral and me aren't on a very good term, really, I got sick the last time I went, and I didn't even stay long. I took my med and now I should get my ass in bed.

June 06, 2007

Watching : Criminal Minds

I finally got the dvd for Cardcaptor Sakura the Movie, Angelic Layer vol. 3 (which I've been trying to get but they never seemed to have in stock)

I want Copycat maybe I'll order it.

Finally my laptop is back, I guess I'll have to get a new one soon, just not now, my mom said. At least I can write at the store now. :)

As for the comment about Different Light, (not sure if you are the same person that sent me e-mail earlier, if you are well, I e-mail back! LOL) I lost a good chunk of what I've been writing with my hard drive, basically what I have left is what I had posted before. Which is, well, just put me right back at square one. I'm trying to write though, I haven't been able to lately, too many things going on. But I promise to try.

June 02, 2007

Mai Otome Zwei 3 is out!!!


I've been waiting for that.

Well, I've been without the comp for a week, the entire week!!! That's the longest ever!!! Anyway, I got the thing upgrade, since the harddrive blew up on me (not literary) so I increased the ram changed the harddrive changed mainboard (basically a new cpu) Well, so now I'm waiting for my laptop to come back.

Anyhow, so I got bunch to look at after I got it back not to mention that I need to get back most of my links. I've learned to backup these things now. Just in case.

At least I'm back...

May 18, 2007

New episode of Criminal Minds...

I'm curious as to why the hell I could not find ep 22 and instead there was a list of ep 23 for me to load and no 22 in sight. And the one I got last night was ep 24. Interesting, they are trying to get rid of Hotchner, I'm looking forward to see how that one's gonna go. Seems like the woman got pissed more when he basically profiled her right there on the spot.

I just ordered Criminal Minds season 1 on dvd as well as NIN Year Zero, and Angelic Layer vol 3 so I can complete the boxset (I never did get the chance to get vol.3 cause when it came out they just didn't have it in any store I went and looked.)

I'm writing random thing more now.. (well, not that random, they are still about the pair I read about, man, I'm spreading my obsession around these days.)

A friend of mine is in a bit of a dilemma these days it seems. I told her to come live here, at least she doesn't have to worry about the rent, now that her roommate/sort of gf is acting like a five year-old. Though I do think that that one has an agenda of her own and she's making sure she has all available options before she decides. Might take a while, a long long while, but she's thinking of something. I told my friend that already, and well, she agreed with me. I'm always right, but people just don't listen to me. Why the hell is that?!

I want a Curve Bow!!!

Claymore: manga

I've reading through all 10 vol. of the manga the day before. I picked them up from 1-10, missing only vol. 7 and 9, but I picked those up yesterday and I read through all of them. I liked it, a lot and quite happy that the anime is following to the manga closely (or well, it seemed to so far)

We got to see Clare, the protagonist, as an emotionless being that a Claymore seemed to portrait in the beginning, coming into the village according to an order, we also learned that they worked as an organization, and the Claymore were once human girl that accept the Yoma's flesh to be half human half demon, and Claymore only have female, no male. Clare picked up a boy, or rather he followed her and begged to be with her (he had no one now that all his family was eaten and killed, and no one in the village was going to accept him, seeing him as a potential Yoma.)

So, she let him go with her, against her better judgment. And we learned more later that Clare was not the best in the organization, but the opposite, she was the last number, the worse in skill. And we saw why... she was saved by Teresa the former no.1 (not directly) she refused to be part from her. And later, when Teresa died she accept her flesh, making Clare only a quarter demon.

She improved although, not a sturdy progress, seemed weaker in some instant and stronger in others. I'm hoping there'll be no romance between her and the boy, cause that would so ruined it for me. And I do hope that the story won't turn out like Berserk, which still on going. So many potential slash pairing. Ummmmmm...

Spiderman 3.

Saw it, I kinda like it, although it seemed to be too much time span in only 1 movie. The Goblin (Hop Goblin??) Sandman, Venom, it would've been better to take, maybe Sandman out, so that they could focus more on the other two, or better yet, only 1 enemy. Maybe only Venom, they could go deeper into the details that way. 'Cause all we get to see were flashes of how he behaved and such, but no sense of how much time, or how long he was that way, which annoyed me, but all in all in was entertaining enough, and I do like Goblin. :)

May 03, 2007

I just watched Claymore, finally!!

I liked it! And there's potential for some slashing! LOL. I liked Clare, she's just the type of character I usually drawn to, as long as she develop further and not turned into a slobbering mess of human emotion, then it's all good. But then maybe I should get the manga for it as well. I saw the manga a while back but since I couldn't get the first volume I kinda dismissed it, until I can get the first volume that is. Maybe the next trip to the bookstore (gotta take a little ride) I also saw Ikkitousen, but they just didn't have the first few volume. (I only saw vol. 5 and when I asked they didn't have them)

Also I needed to pick up the next vol. of Eureka 7, MAR, Mai Otome, and whatever else struck my fancy. LOL

I just let my aunt watch Blood&Chocolate, she liked those kind of movie, Vampire, Werewolf type. I liked the feel of the movie, although I didn't get to see the entire thing, I went to shower, but no matter, I can watch it later.

Writing ShizNat still. :) I'm making a decision on some scene, so it's at standing still... This is why I should not skip ahead and write a scene that should be in later part, cause then I usually end up not knowing whether I should put in certain piece of information in certain places.

Also Bellatrix/Narcissa... yeah, yeah, yeah... Blackcest, but it's my guilty pleasure (well, what isn't my guilty pleasure) I'm writing it, I kinda have the end of that in mind, but it'll be a long way to go before I get to that point. LOL. Don't know if I'll ever post it though. Maybe, just for the hack of it.


April 27, 2007

Let's talk about Maria-sama ga Miteru OVA3 : A Breath of Fresh Air.

The ep started with Kanao helping Yumi out at the Rose Mansion, she refused to let Yumi wash the washrag, saying that Yumi-sama should not be doing the dirty work (um... seeing how she was a petite soeur, she did do all these things last before...) Cleanly, she had that certain image of Yumi. But then she left when Rei showed up.

The lunch scene was, well, I'm not sure how I feel about that. Yumi would not let Kanako treated her, and so Tsutako stepped in to solved the issue, the news would surely be in the school paper, and they put a stop to it.

Now the discussion of Sachiko's dislike (one of many things that she seemed to dislike... man, high maintenance anyone? She didn't like cheery blossom, didn't like crowd, didn't like men. Didn't like moving vehicle.. ) The look on her face was priceless when she came in and heard what was being said. I'd love to see Sachiko's drooling face.

I do think that the illustration on this wasn't as good as it was, especially Sachiko. Kanako was sure tall. I mean, in Okazu summary did say that she was tall, I just didn't think she was that tall. She was taller than the rest of the cast by a whole head!

The scene at Hanadera, I wish that part was longer, I did enjoy reading the summary on Okazu. The last scene was cute though... the yuri meter just went all the way up! The ova are made with maximum yuri effect, really.

Well, after it's said and done, I do like the OVA a lot!! Can't wait to see the next one, I wanna see Sachiko in the boy's uniform.

April 24, 2007

I finally got vol. 3 and 4 of Mai Otome dvd.

I didn't get the chance to before, so I finally went today, and I picked up the last vol. of Fate/Stay Night as well. I almost bought Sephiroth (I think that's how his name spelled) model, but it seemed that the guy might've misplaced his hand (cause, what's there was two right hands, and not one of each) so I said I'll come back in a week or two, maybe I'll get it then.

Maybe not.

Also I thought about pick up a copy of Death Note 1 and 2, but well, I don't know, I'm still thinking about it. I mean, the book was filled with dialog, I'll ask my cousin, he saw it already.

Man, it's real hot today, I feel like a snake (wanna slither, instead of walking anywhere)

I haven't been feeling very well for the past few days, I guess I'll go back to working out the day after tomorrow, cause it's really hot today, and I can't stand heat, which in turn, making me feel tired and when I'm overheat I just get sick. *sigh* I hate it when it's hot like this.

April 23, 2007

I'm watching NCIS.

I get extra day off yesterday, and I slept till noon, it was great!!!!

I rarely get to do that as it is, so when I get the chance, it was pretty good. Also, I finally get to watch season 3 of NCIS, after been watching season 4.

I need to catch up on Jigoku Shoujo, Darker than Black and also Claymore.

My cousin was going on a trip with her company to Japan, I asked her to buy me a couple of things. She just got back yesterday, I think, that's what my aunt said. She borrowed my jacket, so she didn't have to buy a new one, what are the chances of us ever needing a jacket that thick anyway. Zilch, let me tell you.

I dropped my dog off for a bath and I told them to just cut the hair off of him. Since he went into the fish pond several times yesterday, the fishes went belly upped, but Gizmo was pretty happy that he was nice and cool. So, when I pick him up today, he'll probably look more like a cat than a dog. Maybe I'll post a pic. LOL.

I'm reading more Bella/Cissy these days, (actually, more like Bella/F, and Cissy/F, but I do prefer them together than not, however weird that is)

April 13, 2007

Watching : CSI : NY

So, I've been playing Trauma Center : Second Opinion on Wii. :)

I enjoy it, even though I only get to play one or two chapters at the time.

Also, I start practicing with my chux again. I never did practice long enough to actually being proficient at it before, so I guess this is as good a time as any to do it. Never too late to start something, right?

It's raining right now, which mean I won't have any customer, (they don't walk around in the rain, after all.) Empty store, means I'll be watching movie or writing, probably both since there's not much to do.

I just finish one scene of ShizNat, so I'll start with another, probably a scene with Mai to alternate it and get a secondary line moving. And yes, I still read Bella/Cissy (blackcest, they called) I don't mind Bella or Cissy/Hermione either, just for variety I guess. It's surprising I took to it as easily as I did, since I normally really picky about start reading a new pair. Oh well.

Back to writing.

April 03, 2007

Last night I got what I've been looking for : 2 mp3.

Mai Otome Zwei 2 ending credit : Storm by Koshimizu Ami
Simoun ending credit : Inori No Uta by Savage Genius

I'm quite happy now, and also I got my Nintendo Wii last week. :)

I got me Legend of Zelda as well as Trauma : Second Opinion. I started playing on both ones, and well, didn't really get anywhere since I've been pretty busy. The control for Wii was interesting and surprisingly easy to adapt to. Next Friday I'll pick up the classic controller, and probably another set of the remote and nunchuk. We'll see, I'll get pay today (or rather mostly I pay myself) Maybe I'll pick up something else too.

I started reading Bellatrix/Narcissa fic (they call it blackcest) .. yeah, it's weird I know, considered they are sister, but some of the fic are surprisingly good. I seem to pick up weird new obsession every so often anyhow. I should get back to writing before I get too lazy. :)

'now we are one, in everlasting peace
we hope that you choke' [exit music]

March 27, 2007

I've got another idea for fanfic.

Yes, another Shiznat idea, although I'm not sure if I can write it down and finish it, since I have too many stories going already, but I guess I can try, I mean, I have to, otherwise I'll get really rusty and I won't be able to finish anything.

I'm getting Nintendo Wii... yup, it's decided. The day is Friday. :) I'll pick one up. I got a pretty alright deal the other day. It's the same price as XBox 360, but at the moment I want Wii and not 360, so. Maybe I'll try to get both, but then it still has to be one at the time.

I got a haircut today. I feel much, much better now. Like I've lost several lbs off of my head. LOL.

It's getting hotter everyday, so it's better with short hair for me.

My aunt just went back and my mom asked when I'm going to go visit. I said next year, then my mom asked why not this year if I'm gonna go on Oct. I'm thinking, it might be a good idea. I always love Falls. :) All that leaves changing color and Halloween! And the weather is just the way I like it, cold, but not too cold.

Yeah, I think I'll discuss it with my cousin first. She said she'll go with me. hehehe

March 19, 2007

I found something I didn't think I would on Sat.

So, I was sick, yes, what else is new, and I still got dragged out so they can go shopping. Ok, so it was supplies shopping. On the way back I made a stop at the bookstore and usually I never find anything I read there, cause well, I long stop reading any novel in Thai (save for the precious few, like the 'Uma's Diamond that took about 10 years to write) But something caught my eye, a teenage romance novel thing. It marked at the top 'y-novel' and yes on the cover they have 2 girls. And another book, also marked y-novel has 2 guys. Anyhow, I bought one, interesting enough, cause it was Yuri novel and has a happy ending too. :) Although I probably wouldn't make it a habit of it.

I would post a summary but I doubt anyone would read. LOL

I still want that Nintendo Wii. *sigh*

March 15, 2007

Doing : munching on some snack

Today we (me and a friend of mine) went to Hot Yoga, and damn it was hot!!

I actuality I should not be going while I don't feel so well in the first place. The class is an hour and a half long, last 15 minutes was a torture, cause I don't feel good and I couldn't breathe very well. But we got through it, and it should be pretty good if I feel up to it again, maybe in a week. My throat hurts, and it felt like my chest is being constricted.

I still want Nintendo Wii.. My cousin asked me why, and why didn't I want PS3 or XBox 360. Easy, I'm not a hardcore gamer. I don't spend my day playing, all day all night, I only play in short burst and then I move on to something else, so a short game is good, and occasionally I might want something more substantial, but not right now, some racing game, or lighter on the effort, like mario is good.

I was watching the beginning of Night at the Museum last night. I like the T-rex, and the fact that it actually gave the reason to why everything came to life at night. I thought we were gonna go through the movie not knowing why. And the scene that had the Roman army shooting firearrow at Ben Stiller, that was funny. :) But not as much as the scene with the T-rex and bone throwing.

Now I should start watching The Guardian, and Eragon. ummmmmm...maybe I'll get through them today. Maybe...

March 14, 2007

I'm listening to Precious Rose [Shindou Naomi]

Finally, I got my cpu back last night. I told the guy up front to let me know when it was dropped off, but noooooooo... I sat and waited till almost midnight and called down to ask, that's when they told me it was dropped off even before 10pm. I was kinda pissed, a little, 'cause I could've been setting the thing up already and went to bed earlier instead.

So, I spent the rest of the night loading firefox, thunderbird, divx and such. It's not even complete yet, but before that I got the message that the internet access's been temporarily suspend, due to overdue bill. I just got the bill 2 days ago!!! At least they have a messaging system, so I let them know that the bill was late. And they let me access afterward. Needless to say, I paid it off today, that and the cable bill.

Anyhow, life goes on, and I get to watch the stuff that I loaded, (cause the laptop won't take the screenplay, not enough power in the usb port) anyhow, I'm catching up on Shark, and Criminal Minds, as well as NCIS.

I like James Woods, especially when his character's a lawyer, since The Indictment : The McMartin Trial. I'm thinking of getting Ghost of Mississippi, :) And Live Nude Girls, just because. Well, I can think of a lot of things I want. :)

360. (I always thought that I dropped by at the game store and asked about Nintendo Wii. The price wasn't bad, less than what a PS3 costs, but right now I don't really want PS3, I want Nintendo!! LOL. I'm such a child sometimes. I think it's the nunchuk thing. :) Plus the machine was smaller than PS3 or XboxXBox has the size of a vcr) I also placed an order for Harry Potter last book on Friday.

So, now I'm gonna start watching Shounen Onmyoji and Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny.

My purchase today : Angel Sanctuary vol.4

There's a funeral my mother was supposed to go to tonight, my great-aunt. I went last night, but she's going tonight with grandpa, I think, and I'll have to pick them up afterward. I don't feel too good and so I'm not suppose to go to the funeral.

March 08, 2007

So, my comp is still in hiatus, and I got season 3 and 4 of The Dead Zone.

I'm back to watching Mai HiME, again. Although I got 3 volumes of Marchen Awaken Romance dvd, but I saw those already from Fansub, so I'll wait till I get most of them to watch. I still have to see Eureka Seven, since I already got 2 volumes on dvd already.

My brother borrowed my Fate/Stay Night dvd and he didn't return them yet. Now if he got scratches on them I'm gonna tear him a new one.

On other note, I'm making a box to fit 7 dvd, and it turn out quite alright, the only problem is I'm not one for planning ahead on those kind of things. I usually decide on what lining to use or what to cover on the outside as I go along, which doesn't work very well, when I didn't leave enough room for lining. 'Cause basically I just put the dvd together and build a box around it, there's a little room, but probably not enough to put a fabric lining inside, I can try making it as smooth as possible and just line it with nice paper (possibly handmade, cause I'll make 'em myself, the paper that is) As for the outside, I'm deciding. :) I like the look of metal etching has, so I might do that with a piece of paper the thickness of 100 grams paper, or slightly thicker, as long as it isn't hard to cut.

Um.... I'll have to think about it more.

Now... I forgot what I wanna write about now... LOL. Too many interruptions.
