I was thinking of maybe posting a story here. I'm working on two, but they're pretty long. I want to do something short, just for fun and so I would have something to post. Maybe a halloween related story. I'm already getting ideas ^_^

   I'm back!
Sorry I was away all day... We went to a pinic at some people's house who go to our church. They live in a beautiful old farmhouse, and they have a barn and horses, and I don't even know how much land. We went went on a hayride, and had a campfire. It was supposed to be just for lunch, but everyone ended up staying longer and they got pizza for dinner. It was fun ^_^

I saw Kenshin last night. That was a great episode. It was so sweet. At the end I just wanted to go "awww!"

Now I'm tired.... Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post! I think I'm going to bed now.... See you all tomarrow.

They finally added a member list that lets you see everyone's rank, and I'm on the first page! It's interesting to see everyone elses rank, not that ranking really matters anyway, I was just starting to wonder what other people's rankings were.

   Great movie
If you haven't seen Castle in the Sky yet, I highly recommend it. Though a lot of people probably have, it's been around for a while. I was really surprised by it, it wasn't what I was expecting, but then Miyazaki movies never are, but they're always amazing.
It had little things in it that reminded me of parts from Sprited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Kiki's Delivery Service. It was Miyazaki's first movie (wasn't it? I can't remember....) so I guess some of the others could've been inspired by it. Sprited Away got me really interested in Miyazaki's works, and I really enjoyed all four movies. Now I have to see My Neighbor Totoro....

A Moogle!
I just got back a little while ago from youth group at church. I help out with the jr. High Youth Group (well, since last week) It's alot of fun. I just hope they get those marshmellows out of the carpet.... I bring my laptop with me, and everyone wants to play with it. I was in another room and someone came in and asked if they could play pinball on my computer. I didn't know I had pinball on my computer, but appearently I do....
I think I'm going to need glasses. I'm going to the eye doctor next week, but I took an eye test today and I did really bad. I could hardly read the third line....
Well, see you tommarrow.
