aisuyoukai: (/getting happy pettings; yay~! [dmc])
Well I had fun today! I went out with my dad tonight and, surprise surprise, I had a great time. Not that I have horrible times every time I go out with him or anything, and I do love him, but sometimes its more iffy than others and sometimes its just plain miserable (usually for me). Sometimes its just fine and I enjoy it. Tonight I had fun.

First, we went out to eat at Red Lobster. I love Red Lobster and tonight the seafood was ridiculously good, whether because they cooked it really well tonight or just because it'd been so long since I'd last had seafood I couldn't tell you. But it was great. I had one problem with the snow crab legs--the first ones they brought out were horribly mushy, ew--but the lobster was so well cooked I didn't have to struggle to get it to part from the shell, the shrimp scampi's juice was terrific, and I got a replacement set of crab legs that were just right. So overall I was very pleased. The waitress got a nice tip. XD

And then--we went to the bookstore!!! Only my favorite place ever. (Seriously.) Together we spent about $80 on books meaning about $100 worth of books in total. But see I get a nice discount from working where I work and so it was the cheaper price spent. Nice, yes? Indeed!

...I'm still getting over the fact that I actually bought the historical novels. Oh, dear. I am so obsessed its ridiculous. (I wonder when it will fade?) Renaissance Italy is so beautiful though; I wish I could go back and see it with my own eyes. Note I did not say I wish I was born back there--no, I like my technology too much, and plus if I wasn't born a noble? I would have been a very miserable person not to mention probably get into all kinds of trouble. X3 Ah, well. Anyway, the books I got are about the Medici, mostly Lorenzo. /sigh. Shut up, Giovanni, I do not need your opinion it is bad enough I know you will be reading over my shoulder every time I pick up one of these books. -_- ....I need to stop talking to my head muses out loud.

Aaaaaaand--! Yes, that's about it. Had a really great time, though. Dad was in a really good mood, I was utterly content with how he was acting for a change, and we had some interesting topics of chat. But, yeah, that's it! I'm happy. ^^

It's kinda a nice feeling, okay?
aisuyoukai: (winged devil [dmc])
HALLOWEEN WAS SO MUCH FUN. I had a blast. And while only one of you will get ANYTHING I am talking about in this spiel I am about to type out I don't care and you can have fun laughing at me, seriously. Also yes, there will be crude humor involved. XD You have be warned, damnit.

So I went to Renfest (that's renaissance festival for you non-Texans) with my friends this year for Halloween. (So cool that it actually fell exactly on it this year, heh.) It's kinda a tradition but this year was so sweet. I went as a winged devil. SO MUCH FUN. I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH. I was playing with the wings all day, but especially got into it as it got dark and beyond. I GOT ASKED FOR FOUR PHOTOSHOOTS. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I've never been asked for photos before; it was quite exciting. :D I also scared a kid who thought he could bad-mouth a devil. Retard. ....and then there were ten-million "horny devil"/"horniest lady I've seen all day" comments flying about. It was rather amusing, actually. All in good jest. (And then there was this one old guy who was creepy about it. I swear to God one of my friends tried to distract and he did NOT look away from me. /cries. But someone else walked up and said something and thus attention diverted we all just sorta....walked away. LOL.) Also got asked for a random hug, idk but I was too happy being excited people liked my costume to be "personal space RAWR" person that day so... she got it. lol. DID I MENTION I GOT ASKED FOR PHOTOS? /shot. Okay, okay.

AND TORI. (Teagan already heard.) GUESS WHAT? I SWEAR TO GOD (again even!) THAT I ACTED LIKE RAMPANT THE OTHER NIGHT. Technically the pair of friends I went with (there were more but we sorta split off and the fourth wasn't dressed up, whatever) went as elementals--the King of Fire and Queen of Ice--and I was their pet demon. lol. So "Master" bought a bag of sweet popcorn (best popcorn I've ever had, I kid you not; it is both sugared and salted) and because my hands literally were my wings it wasn't very practical for me to use them--so I was begging for treats. I did tricks to get them! Haha. (I would open my wings to different degrees and stuff like that.) It was...oddly fun. SHUT UP. I WAS HAVING FUN IN CHARACTER. Plus it was totally amusing. I think "Mistress" might have been a little embarrassed but that's okay, that's not very hard to do. lol. And she was having fun, too. I'm glad. I'm pretty sure we all had tons of fun. I mean obviously I know I did, and the new addition seemed to thoroughly enjoy the crude humor floating around, haha, and obviously Baratus always loves it, and I think even Mokushi loved every bit of it. ^__^

So awesome.

SO NEKO. We actually only managed to watch one show this year, lol, we kept missing the others, oops, but we were just having so much fun walking around and goofing off and talking to random people/shop owners and.... but anyway! You remember the "Art of Defense Symposium" or whatever it was called (at the Academy of Arms)? Yeah, we managed to actually catch that one. (And before that we listened to Tartantic if you remember them.) Well they had a new person this year! It was still four people battling it out and stuff, but instead of four guys their new person was a girl. SHE WAS SO COOL. And crude. LOL. It was great, really. I could not get over the fact that she was from Florence, Italy. (Why yes I am obsessed with certain assassin-y game coming out on the 17th.) Okay so for you guys who have no clue what I'm talking about their act is that they're four people from different parts of Europe who come here to compete in a small tournament. There is Oscar Hosslehoff from Germany, "Hard" John from England, "Little" Peter O'Toole from Dublin, Ireland, and the new Patchou--you know what I'm going to butcher her name if I even tried because not only can I not spell it but I couldn't even pronounce it really >.>--from Florence, Italy. (They each had specifics but that's all I can remember by heart, damnit!) I really liked the girl this year--and she won! (Which is ironic, really, because last year my favorite was O'Toole and he won when we watched that year. Haha.) They have the audience vote on the winners so even if one of them wins the duels the crowd favorite wins. Oh, and Hosslehoff has this amusing "new" book called "Grab Them By the Crotch and Throw Them Out the Window!" (Best said with a German accent, seriously. Go ahead, do it. I'll wait. /pauses typing for ten seconds.) So the steps are basically thus: I forget the first two but then there's 3) grab them, 4) pummel them (this is my favorite part, Hosslehoff says and pommels a few more seconds), 5) grab them by the crotch, and 6) throw them out the window! Fffft. It's wonderful. So then they introduce the four competitors and it's all great but the one thing I must share is when Hosslehoff was being introed the announcer ("Hard" John usually does this except for himself) mentions the book and Hosslehoff immediately plugs it with "It will change your life!" and then the girl went "It changed my gender!" Ehehehe. Also they have one "intermission" with an "advertisement" that Hosslehoff and John usually do together about (and here comes the really crude humor, folks) "Better Beaver Butter!"--with 50% less beaver hair than other beaver butter! FFFT. Okay, I'm done you can read again. >D

...and if you don't get that, please don't ask. LOLOLOL. (Or as they put it in the beginning: this act does have violence and crude humor; it is not for kids. we warned you! although if they go to public school they won't be able to tell the difference anyway! ...if you don't get a joke ask your kids.)

Vaguely sad we didn't catch any other shows but we did hear "Cast in Iron" while we--well, they--were throwing knifes and axes and stuff. Then we walked over there to listen more but...uh...this REALLY drunk gypsy-wench draped herself over Homer and he told her to get off after smelling her breath (apparently she was spinning around, dancing? and its not hard to wonder why she started to FALL). He had that "serious smile" on his face--it's hard to explain without knowing him 'cause it's not really a smile per se--but basically it meant he was being forcefully polite while really not wanting to deal with something. Least to say it kinda ruined the happy music times for us, lol, and anyway it was over with after that song apparently. We avoided the gypsy-wench and didn't shoot the longbows 'cause she was there at the time, ffft, and went straight to listen to the "drunk-a-wench" which is--you guessed it--more crude humor times. Basically what the, ahem, "lady" does in the tank is rally really hard on the people throwing at the button and/or the nearest would-be throwers if no one is currently doing so. It's great to listen to. Newb (he doesn't have a nifty name given for internet use, heh) threw at her and got close (coupla inches) each throw except for one where you could tell he was getting frustrated. XD Then we walked across the way and listened to the OTHER guy--like a jester type. You threw tomatoes at his face while he bad-mouthed you. lol. Newb threw at him too and this time got worse as he began laughing too hard. XDD All in all it was great fun.

...Hmmm. What else? OH YEAH. The sword shop had some new replicas they were selling this year: video game swords. They had Alty's long sword, a very interesting metal version of Halo's energy sword, and--dun dun dun--Red Queen from, duh, Devil May Cry 4. They're all too small in size for me to have wanted to buy them for shits and giggles. If it's not going to be a working blade I want to buy the damn thing at the right size. Ya know? Plus Red Queen was way too expensive. However, it was really interesting to see up close. I never realized just how AWKWARD a sword that thing is--seriously, it looks weird. It has odd angles and random pieces just...sticking out. I don't know how to explain it. But it was cool to see in person like that...even though it was so "tiny." (Maybe three-four feet long? And too small width-wise. Trust me. That's so not how large the real thing would be.) They had the rev parts and everything though. The first time I saw it I was pissed and turned my back on it. But I had to go back several times to look at it. XD /is a sucker. Seriously too expensive for the size though. Oh, and Alty's sword? Way too small too. It was say... short sword (if even!) size, and trust me it was NOT his short sword. That is curved. It was his long sword. Only... not long. GAY.

But that's okay because I know how easy it is to find them online (and even as WORKING BLADES if I want) so I'm not worried about that. Because yes, I plan on buying them. XP

SPEAKING OF ASSASSIN'S CREED. There was...a guy dressed as Alty up there. Except. It made me want to cry. He was kinda larger and the costume he had didn't fit so well and and and... and yeah, it just wasn't cool, sadly. (Someone today told me they saw a black robed version, too! But I didn't see him personally. :c) /SIGH

...I think that's FINALLY about it. Oh, yeah. I'll have pictures up later I SWEAR. I just have to get them first and they're not on my camera (yeah, right. WHAT camera? fft.) So I promise you those, flist, in the future!! Seriously!


Hope everyone had a great Halloween, too. Later~!

There really aren't words required. The new Star Trek movie is great. And, damnit, if I didn't love every single one of the 'repeated' quotes from the original series. >XD I never even watched any of those! And of course Scotty was my favorite. Hell, that's why I wanted to see the movie in the first place. Simon Pegg ftw! o/

Chekov was endearing, too. Haha. And Sulu. And Bones. Oh, hell... it was a good movie and I liked the characters. Sheesh. Oh, I liked what they did about the timeline, too. Very interesting. I wonder how many fans are upset though. Or how many younger ones are like "cool! do over!" and excited for more, new continuum. :D

I actually wouldn't mind. Go figure.

I've discovered that I really, really, really like playing Left 4 Dead--on the internet. It is so much fun! It's a game based on how well you play with others, in my humble opinion, and it makes the game that much more fun to play with other real people rather than running around with a tag-along AI that sucks at not shooting you. Or standing in front of the Witch. (On the other hand, players tend to be jack-asses and/or idiots half of the time, too. You just have to find the right group.)

So.... yeah. I've discovered I like Xbox Live. Help us all.

On the other foot--I found that I magnanimously HATE Dynasty Warriors 6. While it looks pretty, and I still like some of the relationships between certain characters (aka my favorites; read: Sun Ce and Zhou Yu)... I am royally pissed at what they did with too many things. The good: the leveling system and game-play is still fun, in fact I like the new way they did the horses and skills. The bad: everything else they changed all the fun weapons to not-so-fun weapons! Seriously, everyone with an "exotic" weapon got switched over to a spear or spear-type weapon. How lame is that! Sun Ce, Zhou Yu, ZHANG HE, and Ling Tong just to name a few (of my favorites!). (And what the heck is Zheng Ji wielding? I can't tell yet. Or Diao Chan for that matter. And Lu Bu's weapon! Wth!) They also changed the looks of people. Granted, they try to "up the ante" with each successive game when it comes to the characters, but... I think they screwed over a few people this time. At least combined with the weapons. But seriously... I do not like Pang Tong's new design. *sigh* Oh well. Uh... oh, yeah. I hate Sun Shang Xiang in this game. I liked her. Now she's retarded and uses a BOW. Sounds almost cool minus the fact that she's not wielding chakrams, but NO. It's NOT. It's annoying. And her Musou Mode sucks. So there. AND SUN CE DOES NOT HAVE A MUSOU MODE! WHAT THE FUCK, KOEI? I HATE YOU, TOO!

*deep breath* Okay, I'm done. But I really don't like that game anymore. *sniff* Sun Jian looks cool, but hard to get over his "original" look. (DW4 is my first DW game, and my favorite out of all.) Gan Ning looks nice, but also hard to get over his old look. I will say this though: I like his new double sword weapon style. 'S cool and fun.

Okay, now I'm done with that. Seriously.

XBOX LIVE IS FUN. I want to play some more. Alas, I have to wait till Friday. lol. Gotta be at my friend's place to actually get on. :P Anywho, looking forward to some Gears online, but I'll probably end up playing more Left 4 Dead. lol. It's additive. ^^'

But not of the bad kind. ;D

In the past four days I've seen a total of four movies at the theaters. All new stuff. It's really cool. I just got back from the latest one an hour and a half ago. It was fun. I love this week. lol. Well, weekend. I'm so tired though. I'm still doing a 'I-don't-do-anything-but-sit-around-and-maybe-read-or-play-on-my-laptop' job. Do we see a pattern in my life here? lol. But, yeah, I'm a security guard. And no, it's not as cool as it sounds. It's rather lame. And boring. Oh-so boring. Yes, very very boring. Anyway... it's a job. And somehow I still manage to become tired doing it. Tired from doing a whole lot of nothing. Does that make sense? No, no it doesn't. But it happens anyway. -_-

Oh, right, so the movies. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In this order of those days I went and saw: Hancock, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Get Smart, and Journey to the Center of the Earth. I really enjoyed every single one of them, so I pretty much recommend them all to just about anyone.

Hellboy II is by far my favorite one. I loved it to death. (I'm even thinking about RPing Krauss. Hehe.) It's very epic, but it was not over-the-top like I feared might be the case. It was very beautiful visually, and the story is compelling. Poor Abe. Anyway, it's very very good and I recommend that one to everyone! It's awesome! Oh, and hilarious! >XD

I'm not sure which one I liked better: Journey to the Center of the Earth or Get Smart. They were both really good. Get Smart is freakin' hilarious and I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Same for Journey really, but the former is (obviously) more geared for comedy although the story gets to you; and the latter is more epic with its really funny parts. I'd probably go with the second, but I did just get back from it and its fresh in my mind, and if you don't like over-the-top stuff it isn't the best pick. However, it's a fun movie. And it's not really over-the-top, because I don't like that stuff, and this was smart and good and... well, I'll shut up now. Go see it! Both of them!

Hancock is my least favorite, but that's really a bad way of putting it. It's really good, too. Just out of the four... I like the other ones better. lol. But, it's also the farthest one from my mind because I saw it first. Anyway, I recommend it to just about everyone, too. Although it did go through enough curse words for a PG-13 movie. >_- Mostly the word "asshole" or variances thereof.

Also, whatever week that was that Wall-E came out, I went and saw that that first day it was out. It was awesome! Adorably cute!! Hee! ♥ I loved it! Recommend that to everyone, definitely! :D (Also wouldn't mind playing EVE. She's kick-ass.)

That's about it. Although I've been renting a lot of movies, too. RDJ addict? Me? Never! Haha. Yeah... I am. :P Let's see... here's the list: Zodiac, Good Night, and Good Luck, The Singing Detective, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, and Air America. The last my friend had, the rest were rented in a span of two weekends. Or was that three? :3 Anyway, those are all the RDJ movies. Here's a few Val Kilmer ones, lol: Spartan and Blind Horizon. I'm working on more. XD Um, then I watched Ocean's Thirteen but I really couldn't tell you what happened. I so wasn't paying attention. DX Oops. Oh well. Uh... I forget what else, if anything. I have the feeling I'm missing something.

Cassandra's Dream! That's what I'm missing. It's another movie I rented. It has Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor in it. It's pretty good. And I love both of those guys. They're so cute. Specially Colin! Whoo! :D

Other than...! I've watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ten million more times and it's still fucking awesome. I shouldn't be so amused with it after having seen it so many times, but I still am. Whoo!

I just got back from the movies. So much fun!! I am hyper. Heee. ^___^

I rode my motorcycle up there. And I was "whooping!" the entire ride back home. And speeding. And having so much fun it's just plain silly. XD

I am going to play as Tony now. Ja ne!

Went and saw The Forbidden Kingdom today! Great movie! I loved it. How could you not love something with both Jackie Chan and Jet Li in it? Impossible I say. It was really awesome. I recommend it to everyone really. But seriously if you like martial arts and/or humor. :D I love the Monkey King! Hehe.

In other news... there is no other news. :P

Oh, did I fail to mention it's my birthday today? ^__^

Mom's taking me and a small group of friends out to eat when she gets off work. I am perfectly content. Usually I'm not so big on b-days... at least not since I've been older. Say, about since high school I guess. But between yesterday and today I've managed to rack up something a little over 150 dollars... I don't see this as a bad thing at all. No, siree. :D

Well, anyway... off to write some more. I've been working on a multi-chaptered fanfic. And guess what? It's the longest yet: 28 pages so far. I'm beginning to think I'll manage to actually finish this one. I'm very excited.
