"It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious." ~ Oscar Wilde

Current Song: Hikaru Utada - Travelling
Current Mood: Pretty Normal

So, the last week has been pretty eventful, I think I'll start with Sunday and just condense it.

Sunday, Lance and I broke up. Well, I broke up with Lance. It was for the better, now we're great friends. Actually, nothing has changed...just less, couple-ishness.

Monday, I bombed a midterm. I also embarassingly broke into tears in front of Kevin on the way to class. He just had to ask how I was doing and that triggered everything. Then I was consoled by the tasty candy he bought for me, so overall, not a bad thing. Poor guy though, there's probably nothing more awkward than an innocent question gone horribly horribly wrong. I don't really fancy burdening people with my silly problems, especially not when it's at it's emotional peak. Now I'm cool though, cool like the tasty comfort ice cream from tuesday, the next on my list.

Tuesday, I skipped class and spent money I probably shouldn't have ^^;; Yes, Marble Slab ice cream was consumed. I think the secret ingredient to their ice cream is puppies, rainbows, and the happiness of small children. How can one be mad when shoving such things down your throat?

Wednesday, got my Pink DS and "Doko Demo Issho" finally arrived. Yay~ Some good luck for me~ Also, Lance bought Soul Calibur 3 which is alot of fun~ My new character of preference is Tira, she's so cool with her crazy green hair. On that same night, Lance's computer also exploded. He reformatted it and now it's peachy, but very empty.

The next two days have been uneventful. Life has hit normality again. Oh! Except Matsumoto Jun is playing the part of Doumyouji in the new Hana Yori Dango drama. The first episode made me a bit sad since they sort of altered the personality of Doumyouji to make him less of a knob. Doumyouji wasn't really cool when it comes down to it, he said stupid things all the time and had all sorts of ridiculous facial expressions. Now Doumyouji beats the crap out of everyone ever and sicks rapists on Tsukushi...he also seems sort of broody and angsty. Well, the girl who plays Tsukushi is really good. Very kyute and not too pretty, which would be a bad thing for Tsukushi.

Also, I've been thinking that I should probably start dieting again. As much as I hate it, I'm now a single girl and I don't think the guy I fancy would like a pudgy panda like myself. It's also tough to say if the only guy I have an interest in even likes me in that way to begin with. It's not the end of the world if he doesn't...I just wish I wasn't so selective. Actually, no, that's a good thing. I don't want to waste my time on meaningless relationships. I think love comes when one least expects it though~ That's what happened with Lance.

I think that's all really. I don't really want this to be angsty (hence the lack of posts for the part few days). Even though some of this post has negative subjects, I'm actually not that sad...they're just ponderings really. I can't be sad when MatsuJun is playing my favourite-shoujo-manga-guy! Haha, oh god, I'm such a fangirl! I should commit seppuku while I still have honour left.

I'm off to bed! Night!

Videogames don't kill people, people kill people

Current Song: Franz Ferdinand - Walk Away
Current Mood: I feel like ranting!

Jack Thompson is one fucked up guy. Isn't it easier to blame the world's problems on something that can't even defend itself? Something that isn't REAL, that can't THINK, that can't FORCE anyone to do anything they don't want to.

What a stupid waste of time.

Oh well, I guess later I'll go practice with my broadsword on some little kid. Since I don't play games like GTA or Manhunt, my killing options are restricted to death by Sword of Time (Buster Sword is way too big, it's almost impratical).

I had dreams, they were squids in my coffee...squids in my coffee.

Current Song: Hikaru Utada: Tokyo Nights
Current Mood: Bored out of my skull!

I bought Suiko 4 today and it makes me...somewhat cry...but I haven't played enough to give it a thorough review. Suiko 2 still rocks my face off.

Also, I've heard bits and pieces about this rumor and I thought it was all a joke. An awesome joke, but wow, people sure go into denial when natural disasters occur because heaven forbid that they just...happen! I've also heard that homosexuality and abortions also caused Hurricane Katrina, the Yakuza obviously support both.

On second thought, they still can't be serious.

Also, I want this shirt from Putomayo. Damn my lack of money! Anyways, I think the creepy Panda on it would scare Brenna, since that Panda must definitely be in league with Frank the Scary Bunny (is his name Frank? I'm too sleepy for thinking).

I should sleep, I have to go to Film Studies Lecture and Lab tomorrow, though I would rather not.

One month until I'm 20...I sure don't feel anywhere close to being 20.

"Boredom excites imagination" ~ Quoted by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Current Song: Aiko: Energy
Current Mood: Sleepy...I should sleep.

So Dostoevsky wasn't boring, he was just trying to spark our imaginations. Now I don't have to feel bad about not reading Crime and Punishment because I just read the first chapter and imagined the rest. I'm sure my version was much more exciting, especially when Godzilla emerged from her watery haven and had an epic duel with a giant squid.

Skyuu~ I'm a Panditty and I dance, dance, dance...

Current Song: Nothing.
Current Mood: Pretty good~

So this morning the other girl I was supposed to open with was late due to misunderstanding in the schedule. So, I have a store key, but I actually don't know how to shut off the alarm since I have never opened the store before, only closed. Opening time was approaching and my boss's phone number was safely stashed inside of the store. So I decided run in and um...do stuff...probably explode but anyways I unlocked the store and frantically tried to figure out how to turn off the alarm. Anyways, I've decided that the true purpose of alarms is to distract the hell out of you! How the hell are you supposed to think when that thing is going off. Good for robbers, but not for me. Everything was solved in the end and I ate alot of triceratops-shaped thanksgiving sugar cookies to ease my stress.

It's pretty shady when people tell you they don't have a postal code. I mean, you can say that you don't know your postal code but people actually tell me that they DON'T have one. What the hell? You can't say, "Yes, you do, you shady bastard" or "If you don't have a postal code, then I require a pint of your blood." I think the latter should jog their memory. Anyways, I wish the EB I worked at wasn't in Clareview...it depresses me how shady and stereotypical all the people are.

Inspiration is much like a large adhesive ball...

Current Song: Nine Inch Nails - The Hand that Feeds
Current Mood: Inspired~

So, while pondering or not pondering life, I stumbled upon the most amazing wonderful cosplay ever. A cosplay so marvelous, so sexy, that I can barely contain my excitement.

Are you ready? Here it is!

YES! Oh, but there's someone out there who decided that the Prince is not a fashionable choice. Why settle for Prince when you can be much bigger, much better, and much more clothed in purple-tights with a chin that is the envy of the universe.

Yes, the King of the Cosmos!

So now I'm comtemplating whether or not I should join the ranks of these fine people! Maybe...

Speaking of Katamari though, Namco has released some information about Katamari Damacy for the PSP called "Boku no watashi no Katamari" or in english (more or less) "Our Katamari". Good thing I own a PSP by association, or I would have to be 300$ short! I think a DS version of Katamari would be fun and original as well...but I don't think that'll be happening.

So I dug myself into a hole for Thanksgiving week. I'm such a whore for EB that when it summons me, I go crawling. Sad sad imagery, I know. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday are the days I said I would work. Good job, Amanda! I'll have so much pretty money though! Let's just hope I don't fail at school.

Speaking of failing, Chinese is all sorts of difficult. I'm especially losing interest since my only good friend in that class has decided that we're learning nothing (which we aren't) and that he would rather go to Taiwan to learn. I think that's ridiculous...who would go to Taiwan to learn Chinese? ONLY KEENERS! I'm a little bitter...

If I do drop Chinese, what would I minor in though? What am I good at? I never really had a backup plan...unless...I become a dog groomer. If that happens, I would hope one of you guys intervene and make me fall upon my grooming scissors...there is no job in the world that could make me more miserable...and saddest of all is that I'm good at it.

My fluffy happy Spongebob pillow is calling to me, it tells me that I should sleep...though I spelt a great deal today...so the actual act of falling asleep is going to be difficult.

Before I go, one more awesome cosplay for anyone who's played Feel The Magic XX/XY. Here it is.
