Time War
8月 16日 「土曜日」
Le, I'm sorry to have misinformed you. I had said two-weeks as an estimate, I didn't think anyone would really check the calender for it. That was very sweet, though, and it's actually today.

Also, it says my birth date up there in the left panel somewhere. Heh.

I started out my birthday by puking up Fruit Loops. They're not as cute coming back up. I had come down with a fever and I-don't-know-what on Friday, but I'm feeling a lot better today. After I brushed my teeth, my stomach still felt unstable and I wasn't ready to crawl back into bed yet, so Cota and I sat down in the living room and I opened up a bottle of water. I feel bad he got up to sit with me at three in the morning. I didn't have much energy at the moment to apologize though, and just sat there drinking my water. I was probably taking really big gulps or something, because the water made a weird noise (one resembling that of a fart) which made me giggle and earned me a very judgmental stare from Cota. I just looked back at him announcing very proudly, "I'm nineteen today."

..Yeah. :D
It's scary to think people like me are allowed to vote.

Off the topic of birthday and cereal:
-I've decided to be Roxas for Halloween.
-Also, 'Dgette, I hear Twilight's being turned into a movie. Thought you'd like to know.

Two weeks until my birthday.
. . . Yeah, I don't know what else to say about that.
It's two weeks away.

Things to look forward to:
-My own weighted Companion Cube cake.

There was a mini anime convention of some sort that happened this weekend. We missed it. We being the small group of people I actually know. Not that I would have wanted to dress up anyway, but I wouldn't have been ready for it. Which reminded me Halloween was coming up and I'm still using it as an excuse to cosplay (there's also nothing wrong with free candy). Which also reminded me, I haven't prepared a costume.
. . . D:

I know October's not for another two months but with these kinds of things (actually with everything) I either plan way ahead of time or too late so...I think I'd rather be early.
Tria had mentioned wanting to dress up as Lulu from FFX (I think), to which I responded with, "olol you're baby should be a moogle~". I am so clever. :B

I've still got Jo in the back of my mind, but I think I'd like to have pants on when I'm running around on Halloween night. Also, last year, after parading around the neighborhood, my cousin invited us over to a friend's party where I was completely out of place. All the females there were wearing either a tutu of some sort, wearing glittery wings, in heels, or...something plain revealing.

Not that I want to be wearing any of that but eh...I was in a school girl costume covered in blood. And I don't need to mention the sword I was carrying. xD

Cota wants to be the Millenium Earl, though, and the Earl needs a Rhode Kamelot. It's too bad I want to dress up as a boy. I might not get to go to the Yaoi Con in San Fransisco this year. An e-friend of mine had invited me to go with her as Lavi 'cause she'd be Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man. I'm kind of bummed out. I mean, I'm no big fan of yaoi but I want to dress up as Lavi (<3 <3 <3) and I want to visit SF again. = ~ ="

{I almost forgot}
Romantica, congratulations on your newly acquired license. Are you getting your own car? :D And oh gawd, that wasn't my own artwork--Hah, as if I could paint at all. I'm not a painter, more of a comic book artist. ._." Well at least I try. Have you not seen my portfolio?

Tereeenntia~ yes ma'am you may have my 'digits'. :B You can also PM me your number and I can just start texting you the minute my phone is up. It'd be like "SUHPRAIZE!"

Morgorat I hope you find your phone soon. I need more people to bother. :P And did the 30 dollars at least get a good amount of gas in the car? My dad's not driving his truck anymore 'cause it takes about $100 to fill that thing up.

'Dgette! You know of Waldo? That's positively whack. Odlaw.. xD Not clever at all. I just spelled my own name backwards and...it sounds ridiculous. Eilrahc. AYLE-RACK. Sounds like some grosso obnoxious dude out of an old folk-lore.

"You shouldn't butt heads with someone who is wearing a helmet."
7月 26日 「土曜日」
Work sucks.
Writing papers suck.
My professor's a prick. He's the one wearing the helmet
--He sucks too.

Also, I'm probably pretty late on the complaining, but gas prices are totally insane! (Yeah, the exclamation mark is there to over exaggerate my frustration, but it does look like it's trying a bit too hard)

My cousin was talking about Arnold ("The guh-va-nuh") either cutting minimum wage down from $8.00 to $6.50 -- It hasn't even been that low since I was fourteen -- or taxing more out of paychecks for some-reason-I-honestly-can't-remember-now because I couldn't get over the surprise, but really, if minimum wage is already making it difficult for everyone with the price of gas and cost of living, I don't know how we (currently degree-less workers) will make it after the cut. The government is forcing us all to go hybrid.

I can't argue with that idea though. I hate driving behind, in front of, or next to (basically in a 20ft. radius of) a big gas-guzzling truck. I don't know how many of them almost ran into me the other day.

On a less life-threatening but not any less whiney note: Getting a phone may be put off for a while. Well I guess I'm not whining; I'm informing -- so I'd like to think. The 'family' part of the Family Plan couldn't come through because of actual family issues this week, so it'll have to wait a bit longer. Which I'm fine with because it's a real reason.
Taking care of your family > Getting a phone that will probably break in a month or two.

I should be coming up with some kind of evaluation for the sci-fi movie "Sunshine" right now, but I'm not in the mood for productivity. This might be an act of rebellion upon my professor who, Cota is sure, dislikes me. Consolatti thinks I'm a smart ass, or something. ...Because "I don't do rough drafts" and said I was confident I didn't need his workshop to get a passing grade. I didn't mean I was too good for it. I meant I was too lazy to type up two different rough drafts and was too cheap to spend about five dollars printing up copies for the class. Despite his disdain towards me, however, he says I have talent. I'm just a little ahead of myself.

Whatever. :I
I'd just like to pass the class, plez.

I'm in a really long-windy mood right now. Thank goodness I haven't got my phone yet. Text messages would be as long as essays. Heh..

As promised, Robert Rauschenberg's crack on canvas (which I'm having second thoughts about now):

I think I liked it because I like old buildings; I like street signs; and I like collages. I also like the concept of being abstract, so there's that.
Heh, Thank you, Terentia. Someone said the kid on the post-it looked like an emo version of that guy from "Where's Waldo?". Have you any idea who that is? 'Cause I don't.

Bridgette, I can't count now, but many. (Also, get some sleep, woman! >:o)

Morgorat, I can do many things but napping is not one of them. I don't know how to properly nap. If I lay down, you won't see me for another eight hours or so because I'm a total sloth. :B

Romantica, you're definitely missing out. Coffee. Is. The. Shit. Kidding, that doesn't sound too pleasant at all. Haha, it's good though. Depending on where you're getting it, and who's making it. That's just coming from a coffee snob, though. And organic anything is great.

And Lu, even though we've discussed the topic of Andy via MSN (a little), he's just the older, formerly deceased, male version of me ...with bad skin and a silver wig. :3

Abstract Expressions versus Pop
7月 16日 「水曜日」
I am overly exhausted; there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want; and Andy Warhol isn't as fascinating as I thought him to be--but that's all okay. There's nothing I can really do about the first two things besides sleep (which is what I should be doing now) and drink coffee, but through the research of Andy Warhol's life I've been introduced to some other pretty nifty artists from the same era.

It's 3:40 in the morning, however, and I can't be bothered trying to spell their names out, so maybe next time I'll share a few images. I showed two or three paintings to Cota and he thought they were absolute crack, though, so it may not even be worth it. Heh. "But whatever."

Hum...I guess posting was not the brightest idea. My brain can't even function all too perfectly well right now, and I hardly have any balance in my seat. I might try to squeeze in a two or three-hour nap before I have to wake up again. :)

I hope everyone is doing okay. It's been a while since I've really spoken to anyone on here. It gets old hearing, but is never any less true: I miss the old Otaku days.

If anyone's interested at all, I [might] be getting a phone soon. It shall be a Blackberry. I had planned on getting The Shine but knowing myself, the phone wouldn't stay shiny for very long.

Also: Unlimited texting this time. -___-" Ha ha. I'm not a big phone talker.
I don't know how many times I went over the texting limit with my last phone.

Smoke Screen
6月 27日 「金曜日」
So how about them National Championchips, eh? Fresno State's baseball team apparently won, or something silly like that. Everyone in town's making a big deal about it. My English professor's been talking about it all week, even. Barstow was all jammed packed the other day too because of a parade for the players.

I guess that's all fine and dandy.

I couldn't give a crap about baseball, though --or the city being put on the map finally. The air quality here has been pretty crappy -- which, I find, is a little more important. I'm probably going to get asthma, along with half the Valley's occupants, because of it. There's also a forest fire that occured somewhere near by; So just imagine the Valley as a big bowl filled with trapped smoke. Delicious.

Anyhow, I'm sounding pretty peeved aren't I? I'm reading what I've just typed out. I'm actually quite cheery. Class only lasted about thirty minutes today, so I went out with Courtney and Justin; that was oddly fun. We're going out again tomorrow --along with maybe three others-- and then Sunday Courtney wants to pick me up so we can go bother the other kids while they're at work. :D

My cousin Tyler's in town again. His mum said he'd be here for a week. In her world, a week runs from June 23rd to July 13th. Heh..That's fine though...considering how things weren't all too well with him staying with his grandparents. Tyler's half Vietnamese and his step-grandfather is a veteran of WWII. No need to say more, right?

Hmm. Other useless stuff to talk about. Useless stuff...Ah. I've decided to write my term paper on Andy Warhol. I have the next five weeks to read a biography on someone and then summarize it into eight fun-packed pages. Cota had leant me his book about Kurt Cobain--Heavier Than Heaven--buut I think Andy Warhol and all his popculture-trendiness might be a little more interesting to write about. I'm still going to read Kurt's biography though.... when I have time.

Oh, and I've started reading Venus Versus Virus.
A friend of mine keeps suggesting all these subtext shoujo-ai anime to me. Heh .__."
The girls wear gothic-lolita clothing though and it's cute. And they has guns.
All the reason to read it.

Weird Dividing
6月 14日 「土曜日」
gcvlu3@$6ak%c =
My brain.

I'm very tired all the time now.
And I'm pretty certain I've picked up smoking again. I'm thinking it'll only be a temporary thing, though. My willpower seems to be so amazing I can stop and start anything I want anyway.

Unfortunately, the only thing I have no control over is my sleeping pattern. I really need sleep right now.. I had about a dozen cups of coffee when I went out to Denny's with Andrew and Justin's co-workers last night.

We'd originally planned to see the new Hulk movie (as a spur of the moment type of thing, because everyone got off work earlier than usual) but Edward's Cinema was closed so, being a tad bummed we had all hauled ass over there for no reason, we went to Denny's at 12 in the morning to eat breakfast and talk about movies we'd already seen.

A lot of drunks go to Denny's at two in the morning, I've learned.

And aside from the coffee-refills not being able to keep up with my drinking rate, I enjoyed it. I think I preferred it that we all sat down and had conversation, versus sitting in a two-hour long movie in silence before leaving for home.

That was a first time seeing them all outside of work. Rudy does nothing but talk crap about everyone and everything; Briana was 'kewlios' but kept teasing me with sexual comments that made me face-palm quite badly; and (Go, Go) Diego ...Well he's a twenty-something year old man who likes Tuxedo Mask. I suppose that's enough said.

Lastly: Thank you, Andrew, for finding the poem.
"I'm sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that's good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I'll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed"

Root Three
6月 7日 「土曜日」
I've been putting my homework off for a couple of days now
and I left school early yesterday because of an allergic reaction

-- Which makes me feel like a total pansy because one girl sat in our four-hour
math class in tears the entire time because she has these awful, awful migraines
and I couldn't wait another two hours because my eyes were bugging me. (Hah..)

Thursday I went to my step brother's not-so-little Eigth Grade Promotion ceremony and coudn't even manage to get a good photograph of him. I was seated too far off to the side of the stadium and really only saw the back of his head.

He wasn't looking in our direction because he was looking at his mom (and her relatives) in the audience shouting, "I love World of Warcraft~"

I'm not sure what that was about but it made me laugh. Everyone I'm related to is a geek. <3

And speaking of geeks, has anyone seen the latest Harold & Kumar movie?
The poem Kumar read towards the end of the movie was genius nerd love and I have to have a copy of it.

Hmm. I think I have to go grocery shopping soon. I'm out of Soba noodles and I'm really getting tired of Pilaf Rice. Also, it's Mori Soba season and I 'do wants'.

I can play about 30 seconds of this and yes ma'am/sir, I feel quite accomplished. :B
Not really -o-"

爆裂天使: Angels Explode
So weird weekend set aside, I've got a new obsession: 『Bakuretsu Tenshi』

The story unfortunately is not as strong as it could be.. but it's all about the great Jo fan service.

She is so bad assy. *o*

I finished the series this morning because I woke up from a dream --which was a bit too odd to explain-- and couldn't get back to sleep. The ending was pretty disappointing and so being all bummed out, I jumped onto Youtube to look up clips even though I haven't got sound on the computer -_-" and I watched a preview of what looks like the second season of the show.

Can't wait for that to come out.
Really, I can't. Seems like big changes. And maybe it'll be better...taking into consideration that the first season was aired back in 2003.

In the mean time, I shall be looking for a Meg.
A temporary Meg, anyway.
I really wish Lu could do it. - 3 -
(Why are all my local friends dudes?)
Ergh..I have to cosplay as Jo though,
or I'll just eat my arm off. .__."

This is probably about as bad as the time I got all crazy about Blood+, if not worst. Speaking of which, Justin got me a Collector's Edition of the first part of the series. ..It came with a shirt. :B

Enter Spam:

Jo's the silver-haired one, and Meg's the brunette. ..I think I've got some toning up to do.

Physically Fit and Ready to Fornicate
I've been wondering why it is that I have so much respect for the people older than myself. The only adults that have been good to me have been my aunt Tiffany, my tía Nancy (who I didn't meet until I was twelve), and, just recently, my own parents.

I still haven't figured out why and it's been boggling my brain...
But I don't suppose it's too entirely important.

According to a fifteen-year-old: once a person is too old to reproduce or work they are useless and should be killed off.

That really disturbed me.

I understand a person doesn't usually grow out of their self-absorbed mindset until they're twenty-two or so and that I shouldn't let a kid's point of view bother me to such a great extent, but I suppose that's just how strongly I disagree.

Unless the said retired and completely sterile human being has never done anything for anyone else throughout their productive and sexually-active lifetime, they don't deserve to be killed off because they can no longer contribute to our, sadly, self-entitled society. If someone is no longer capable of doing things for them self, that means it's their children's turn to do it for them. It only makes sense considering their rotten children would be dead if they weren't taken care of from birth to 'adulthood'--and usually even beyond that point a parent still helps their offspring in certain ways.


Speaking of which, my mom paid my summer semester fee for me last week and I've got some ass-kissing to do. Justin and I have to go down to campus and price the books or whatever this Friday and thinking about book costs is giving me a headache.

I think I've decided on working towards becoming an RN. --Only because I don't know what else to do with myself. Nurses are always on demand and at least I'd know where to start...sort of. ...It's also the only job that I can think of that would allow me to make so much with only a two-year degree. The title doesn't seem to suit me at all, but I suppose being able to own my own house before I'm 30 is a lot nicer than an interesting self-image.

And lastly...on the note of 'images', I have a new drawing posted on theOtaku if you haven't seen it yet. It's titled, Time's Up. I hope you give it a "Hug".

Super Effective
My parents put up a bid for some place in Clovis (which is probably a half hour-long drive from where I live now) and...besides from it being two stories, I don't really know anything about the house.

It's down the street from my buddy Justin's house though (according to my step dad), so that'll be a pretty sweet change.

Andrew wants his ears pierced and wants me to have mine redone too. I told him if I was able to find an earing like Ryuk's (from Deathnote), I'd consider having one pierced. :3 But most chances are, I'll never wear earrings and it'll heal up like the last three or four times I had my ears pierced.

Also, as promised (not really):

I'm not really sure if this will help with your sketchy book too much, Le-Kun, but there it is. xD Drawn upon a request made by ...well a friend of a friend's.

I am not too big on the guy on guy love these days but I do enjoy drawing Roxas and scarves, so I didn't mind.

Thank you all for the tattoo suggestions, by the way.
I've decided to just compile it up into some freakish bunny/ladybug/pony monster and it'll be a gigantic back piece. I shall be a gay force to be reckoned with.
