Welcome to my site archives. 10 posts are listed per page.
This is going to be an eventful week. ^_^; I take that Road test thingy on Friday, so if all goes well I should get my license. There is a small problem though. The only vehicle I can driveóan old beat up Jeep Cherokeeóis about to kick the bucket. D: I might not be able to get it repaired in time. Where Iím so short, I canít see out of anything else my Parents own. I would ask a friend to let me borrow their car, but Iím afraid something might happen. Zut! Murphyís Laws, man.
Two more weeks left of freedom. Joy. D: Now I just need to decide on a career path. Pathetic, I know. Lol It makes me feel as though Iím wandering aimlessly.
This is my last month as a teenager. Iím getting old. :3 Nineteen going on two, I say!
What is with all these bright/vibrant colors you ask? To heck if I know. :D The question is: How long can I tolerate this theme? Iíve been experimenting with the dark arts, and this theme was the final product I guess you could say. ~_~; I should know better, I mean look what happened to poor Lyon. ;_;
Things you should know:
ē I DID NOT make this wallpaper. You will find this, and many more, at Wild ARMs.Net. Their Christmas wallpaper is evil. xD Lol
ē The characters are celebrating Hanami. I know itís out of season, but I thought the illustration was cute. :3
ē This is honor of completing Wild ARMs 3 several weeks ago. Even though Iíve completed the game, Iím having trouble identifying two characters in this wallpaper. The guy wearing the sunglasses on his head; and the guy standing between Janus and Virginia, with the open shirt. Sad, ne?
ē Iím not finished yet, so please bear with me. ^_^; I would make my own backgrounds, but time has been scarce for me.
Eh, thatís about it. You all take care. Thanks for reading. ^_^
Just a quick post to wish you all a happy 4th of July. ~_~; I have oodles of the pansy fireworks to set off. Since Iím the only one brave enough in my family to light the fuse, we usually stick with the kind that shoots up sparks. Yes, Nagori is a big stinkin chicken. Lol Itís better than losing an appendage or two. ;D My neighbors across the road have the illegal kind, so we usually just let them entertain us. Cheaper that way too!
Thanks ElvesAteMyRamen, Iíd like to know the seller. ^_^ She kinda sounds like the person I bought my Doujin from. Since mine was a gift I wanted to keep the price as low as possible, so I was afraid to inquire about her translation fee. But weíre probably talking about two different people, so please share. :D Thanks again!
Welp, you all have a good one. :) Iím so tired right now, I better stop before I say something stupid. ::looks at first paragraph:: Perhaps Iíve already made that mistake. Lol ~_~; So if I say something odd in your comment, you know why. (Not just a cover up. Promise!)
Well, donít hold me to what I said about the Doujinshi. ~_~; That didnít really come out as intended. For the most part you can follow pictures, but there are some cases where the dialogue is what makes the scene/joke. Mine was a gift, so the person who treated me thought he was buying something in English. He kinda got mad when I showed it off to him. Maybe someday Iíll be able to read it. Wouldnít hold my breath, but you never know until you try. ^_~
What I meant by first/last was that I donít have money for such things right now. I love to collect them, but the chances of finding cheap/legit copies are a bit rare. (With my luck, anyways. ^^;) I was fortunate to buy mine through someone I had done business with before on Ebay, so I knew that was authentic.
Speaking of Ebay, guess what I was able to find on there? The Art Book I mentioned in my last post (Wild ARMs Chronicle: F). Believe me, this book is out of print. D: No matter where I looked, no one seemed to have it in stock anymore. Though then again, donít hold me to that. Lol Anyways, mine came all the way from Tokyo, and was still factory sealed. Those things are neat to own. :D Even my brother (who told me countless times that I was throwing my money away) was fascinated. ~_~ The DVD that came with it (I had to remote hack my DVD playerÖshhhhh!) had an interesting commercial I wish I could share with you all. You know how some videogame advertisements can be.
Well my Parents are making me drive through town today, so keep me in your prayers. :P I shouldíve had my license by now, but you know. Thatís a long story I donít feel like going into. One could say that Iím a bit Amaxophoibic too. ~_~; When my Mother feels like she has to bribe me with a Nintendo Wii, you know something is wrong. Lol Donít worry, Iím a lot better than I use to be with this phobia. Slowly but surely, itís going away. Will I take her bribe? No. But I might try to get her help with a PSP instead. ^_~ Kinda hard to refuse a Wii though.
Er, better end this here. ~_~; Still havenít been able to visit people as I should, but Iím trying. I should be able to make some rounds later today though, so you should see me then. Once again, itís a long stressful story I donít feel like going in to at the moment.
You all take care, and thanks for reading.
I donít own a credit card, so most of my payments are through Money Orders. ^^; Even if I did own one, I doubt Iíd put it on the interweb either. Now with the Art Book, I was going to send an international money order, but somehow I persuaded my Parents into lending me their card. Paid them back, of course. ^_^; Now, despite the way it sounds, it wasnít all that expensive either.
Who would be happy if they could get everything they wanted? ~_~; I treat myself from time to time, but thatís about it. Forgot to mention this in my post, but those two items were bought almost four months apart. Even when I mentioned the doujin in my previous entry, I had owned it for at least a month or two.
Firstly, I'd like to thank all of you for your advice about that guy. ^_^ He's not going to go away for a while, but it'll work out somehow. Don't worry, I'm not about to go out alone with someone I don't trust. I absolutely hate to turn people down like that, but it has to be done. You never know with people, ne?
I bought my first/last Doujinshi several weeks ago. Don't really see the point in spending too much money for that stuff since I can't read Japanese, but it was a neat experience nonetheless. ^_^ All the characters were drawn in chibi form, so that should tell you how I liked it.
I plan on putting in my two-week's notice on Monday at work. I'll be starting my college courses this Fall, so I need a bit of a break. I went one whole year without going to school, so I thought it was best to quit until I could get back into the swing of things. Once I do, I'll probably go back. I talked to my boss about it, and he told me I could come back when I was ready. So, it's all good. ^_^
I don't really want to quit, but I guess that's best. >_< ::sigh::
Once I stumbled across the wallpaper section on the Official Wild ARMs Site, I couldn't resist changing my theme. ^_~ I'm not finished with it yet, so bear with me. Is the image too big for any of you? If so, I'll use a smaller version.
I still plan on dedicating one to Alter Code: F too, but I want to actually make that wallpaper. I was waiting until I could find some of the artbook scans, which a site so generously provided for me. :D I'd buy the book, but I can't find any places online that still sells it. I'll prolly put it up sometime in September, for ma birthday.
You'll have to bear with me for a while. They increased my hours at work, on count of some people quitting on short notice, so you probably won't hear from me much this week. Not that I've been around much to begin with, but you can't say I didn't try. ^_^;
Plus, my new computer came in Friday. I've been busy installing software, and trying to get the blasted interent hooked back up. Failed miserably, and had to have a guy come in yesterday to fix it. I'm just that good! =D Things sure are different from that crappy ol' Windows 98. It's going to take me a while to get use to it all.
Eh, seems like I've gotten myself into another fine mess. I'm having trouble getting the point across to a guy that I'm not interested in him. He's uber obsessive (which scares me), and he just won't take the hint. >.> Plus the guy is ten years my elder. I'm all for the love has no age type of thing and all, but I just don't feel comfortable around him. He's already talking about a permanent relationship, and I've know him for two weeks. D: No means no, buster!
I'm afraid to be too blunt with him though, because he also has a HORRIBE depression problem too. Yeah... ::lays head down on desk:: I'm screwed.
My Mother did manage to cheer me up though. ^_~ She basically told me to use a bishounen as a scapegoat. lol Wouldn't that be neat? xD Sorry, I'm already taken. ::Insert Bishounen:: and I have already been seeing each other for quite a while now, and ya know. I'm sorry.
Not a bad idea, now that I think about it. Now who would I use? ::rubs chin:: Just come up with a reasonable story, with a somewhat believable name, and voila! :3
I don't know how I'm going to get out of that mess. D: Just shoot me and get it over with!
Well, I shall do my best to make it to your sites. It's hard to concentrate on too much when you're exhausted. ^_^; You should see me today though. Oh, and thanks for all the kind words on my wallpapers. That one wasn't a blend, the image was already like that. ^^; Forgot to mention that.
You all take care. Thanks for reading. :D
I don't think I've posted this video yet. Has subtitles in it, but I still though it was funny. :D
Well, I still don't have those buttons up yet. ^_^; ::holds up shield:: I have somewhat of a good reason this time, honest! I got to looking at them and noticed that some of the people who comment on here don't have one, so I've decided to make them one so all of you will have a link on here. You all take the time to visit and comment, so the least I could do is give you a small link on here. ^_^
That was actually the reason I asked that question in my last post. I wanted to be a bit sneaky, and I thought that would be a good way to get an idea on whom to use. ^_^; But it's best just to come out and ask. I've been meaning to do this for a long time, and since I have to do the coding for everyone's button again [lost the file I had saved on my computer...again! >.<], so I figured now's the time to get around to doing it.
So, what character/anime do you want me to use? Speak now, or I'll pick one for you. >:D
I'd make one for everyone, but I just don't have that kind of time/patience at the moment. Not with this crappy computer anyways. >_< Gomen.
I plan to submit some wallpapers soon. ^_^; It's been ages since I've last made a submission, ne? All of them are for Wild ARMs. Nothing much, I just wanted to make a few things for this title since they're so scarce on this site.
Outside that, nothing new has happened. When I went to pick up my check on Friday, the guy brought Valkyrie Profile over to me. I hadn't planned on playing it until I had completed the Original Wild ARMs [playing two games at once is too much for my one-track mind lol], but temptation got the best of me. He sure wasn't kidding when he said it was different. xD
I ended up buying Tales of Symphonia Friday as well. ::looks at stack of games I have to play:: o_O That should be the last one I buy for a while. lol I'll have to give my Gamecube some attention after Wild ARMs, I've been neglecting it too much. I am ashamed to say that as a Zelda fan, I haven't even started on Twilight Princess yet. D: ::bows head in shame::
Honestly, Al has half of those games half-way beat already. I don't know how he does it lol. I have to take my sweet little time while playing...get my money's worth, since they're so darn expensive.
Well, you guys take care. ^_^ Hope you all had a good Easter, for those that celebrate it. If you don't, I hope you're day went well anyhow. lol
Since I'm in the random mood, here's a pic of Sam. ^_^; It was taken on a rock behind my house, just to be goofing off with the camera lol. As big of a ham he is, the little rat hardly ever poses for the camera. xD
Oh, and thanks for recommending Scions of Fate [think I spelled that right ^_^;], Otemba. ^_^ Al and I have been looking for a good free online game to play like that. It looks interesting. I doubt my computer will be able to handle it, but I'm definately going to give it a try. lol Thanks.
I did have a little mini-rant typed here, but I guess I'll take it down. xD Didn't think it would stay up long anyhow, I just don't feel comfortable posting them. I always feel like I'm whining or somethin. Gomen! ^_^;
Well, everyone at work knows I like videogames now. ^_~ One of the Cashiers noticed me playing my Gameboy SP while on my lunch break, and he started inquiring about it.
The next day I had to work, several people came over to me and started chatting about games. You have to understand that I am one shy/quiet person, so I didn't know how to handle all of the attention. ^_^; I ended up lending Dirge of Cerberus to one of them, and he is suppose to bring me Valkyrie Profile for the PSX soon. He's even an Anime fan to boot! It's nice to know that there are some people there who appreciate the goodness of Anime/Videogames.
I finally have my paws on the Phantasia Dub. ^_^ The voice acting turned out to be better than I had expected. They could not have found a better person to voice Dhaos, in my humble opinion. :D I've even grown a liking to the name Claus now. It's not pronounced how you think it would be, which surprised me. Or am I that slow? [Don't answer that! :D]
I also treated myself to Tales of the Abyss, since I was in dire need of a personal pick-me-up. I'm waiting until I beat the original Wild ARMs to start playing it, but I can't waitl
Lastly, I finally got around to changing my theme. I was going to do one for Wild ARMs Alter Code: F, but I figured it was time I paid homage to my slight Tales of Phantasia obession. What better way to do that than with the great Claus F. Lester? :D
I'm still playing around with the background music, though. I can't seem to make up my mind. I was going to use the Unchained Melody as a joke, but I don't like using songs with words when it comes to background music. Expect to hear some lovey-dovey music though, since he is the Hopeless Romantic of the group. ^_~
The buttons should be back up in a couple of days as well. If yours is missing please let me know, and I'll be sure to add it. ^_^
Sorry for such a long post. ^_^; I guess I'd better end it here. Hope everything is going well your way.
Oh and before I forget, I'd like to ask you all this question. What Anime/Videogame character would/do you associate yourself the most with?
It's an over-used question, but I'm just curious. You can tell Nagori, she's not scheming anything, honest. ::halo appears above head:: You can only pick one. ^_^
Salut! I know I said that I probably wouldn't be back until I bought myself a better compy, buuuut it was too hard to stay away. This site is too addicting. ~_^ Just ignore those stupid links that appear in the comments; I have no idea what is causing them to appear like that. ::shakes fist at computer::
It seems like Wild ARMs is my latest obsession. ~_^ I don't know if you all remember me saying this, but I bought Al Wild ARMs Alter Code:F for Christmas last year, which just so happens to be a remake of Wild ARMs 1 for Playstation. I loved the game so much, that I ended up ordering myself a copy of WA 1 off of Ebay; which I am currently playing right now. :D
I never really expected to get my paws on Wild ARMs 1, so that was a real treat. I waited almost eight years to play that game. Yeah, that kinda sorta influenced my decision when buying Alter Code F for Al. ~_^
I also plan to order the dub for the Tales of Phantasia Animation next week. This was one happy Enigmatic Turk when she found it listed on Amazon.com, let me tell you! :3 I wonder who the Voice Actor is for Klarth/Claus?
So, how have you all been? I hope you all have a great weekend, and take care. ^_^
"If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present. But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past."
This is an AMV for all the Wild ARMs 1-4, using Wings from WA 3. ^_^ I think some clips from the anime were used as well.
Eh, it's been a while. ^_^; ::looks at last post date:: Heh.
I just wanted to explain where I've been all this time, and why I've been neglecting you all so. Actually, I can say it all in two words: my computer. How many of you seen that coming? xD
I don't know what the problem is, this time. ::shakes head:: Like the text-links for instance. I thought it was just my browser acting up, but several made comments about them in me last post. How those things keep popping up is beyond me. o_O That's just the least of my troubles, though. Meh. >.>
Until I can buy myself a better computer, I don't think you will be hearing from me much. I guess this is goodbye, for now. ~_^ Heh. I'll understand if you want to delete me from your list, it's untelling how long that will take. ^_^;
If it takes me too long, I may just delete this account and start anew when my new Compy arrives. I hightly doubt it, but you never know. x3 I'll be sure to give the name if I decide to do that.
Well, you all take care; and thanks for reading. ::hug::
