11:46 pm - Having issues, sort of.
So...a little over a month ago, my company's graphic designer left, and we made him this scrapbook...and I did a Japanese-comic-style caricature of myself on the page I made for it. It was well-received by all who saw it, and I was told that I should consider making a comic. This is something I'd wanted to do, but the plots I come up with never go anywhere. I suppose I could try to make some short ones? I thought about making a longer one based on actual events that happened on an atypical Saturday last September, but the problem is that so much of this is straight narration. As a short story it would work, but as a comic...I'm not quite sure that this would lend itself well to that format. I guess I should write a draft of the whole thing before I decide for sure, yes? Also, I have to come up with aliases since I don't want to use the actual names of those involved. Hm, hm.

current mood: time for bed.

8:32 pm - stickboy's 魔大戦 fic / current writing plans
I saw the trailer for the King Arthur movie a while ago, but I only recently noticed while watching commercials for it that the images made me think of this fic my former associate wrote about the war that took place 1000 years before FFVI. That got me wondering about whether or not the fic was inspired at all by King Arthur stories. Oh, which reminds me! Did anything happen with that, uh, game of his? Maybe I asked about that already, I don't remember.

I've had writer's block for a long time, it seems. Either that or I really can't write. But I'm still trying. I'd really like to work on the Doma Castle fic I've had in my head for years, but I wrote most of the background information for that in a little notebook that I...misplaced somewhere. :P Grrrr. And if I were to work on any other plots, they would probably need editing to remove some Japanese references that I would no longer get. Maybe I should just start a story from scratch?

7:52 pm - possible reactivation with a change in format
A while ago I decided that if I was to write in this journal again at all, it would be to work on my writing. So that's what I'm going to do. Hopefully this will make the journal more active, but as I'm currently stuck in a deep lacking of creativity, I can't say for sure that it will.

Anyway, this means I'm going to be removing all friends and communities currently attached to this name. If you still remember me and want to maintain contact, you can add my other username to your friends list if you wish. I'll most likely add you back. These days I'm writing about random goings-on and my recent unexplained interest in a particular country. (There will be no hockey babbling until sometime in late August, so if you're not into hockey, this would be a good time to read my dorky ramblings. :P)

I feel kind of bad right now. Part of me feels like I abandoned the people I knew from my JA days, but I guess we kind of all went our separate ways? Well, maybe not, some of you guys still talk to each other. I think. Oh, I hate that I'm so bad at keeping in touch with people.

Which Wife of Henry VIII Am I?Collapse )

I had a hard time figuring out how to answer the last question. I wanted sex, I really did, but in my heart I knew that what I would most likely do was eat the cake and drink the Schnapps. :P

11:38 pm - Japanese rock babbling
I know I don't post here anymore...but I was looking at programming tonight and I happened to catch the tail end of this program on the International Channel. Hyde was on...it had something to do with his new album...and I kind of liked the song that was playing so I wonder if I should check it out. But I've fallen completely out of the loop, so should I even bother with it? Well, if I like it...bleh, I don't know.

I was amused when he said the only problem with the recording was that they only had one delivery menu so they had the same food all the time. "It was hell." Heh.

I saw a headline today that said "Eminem's Mom Carjacked", but I wasn't sure whether she was the carjacker or the carjackee. 9_9 It was the latter, of course, but anyway...

I let the paid account expire. I figured it was for the best. I'm still a bit depressed/sick over what's been going on lately, but I know I'll be fine. I just need the appropriate distractions. Like clearing out my stuff, I've finally started working on that. But here's what I'm wondering...should I just give away the Japanese animation merchandise? And if so, where would I give it away? Who would take it? Or should I just throw it away and let the people at the garbage company keep it for themselves if they want it? ...Feh, I don't know. It's not stuff that's worth putting up on eBay. If it was, I'd consider doing that...

11:24 pm - Here comes the rain again...
I like the rain normally, but ever since the lower level of my house got waterlogged over the holidays I haven't exactly been crazy about it. Feh.

The guy I have a crush on is leaving soon. He's going away to school. His last day is next Wednesday, which is the same as my sister's birthday, so I've determined that it is going to be one weird-ass day for me emotionally. ...I still can't talk to him, by the way. I'm such a dork.

I haven't really been writing here, mainly because I've concentrated more on writing in the other LJ and the blog. So...I may just be writing in the other one from here on out. I don't know. I have no attachments to this username anymore, but...the number's so old, you know? Bleh, I don't know what to do.

That "Golden Years" song (er, is that the title?) came on the radio this morning on the way to work. I think that's the second time EVER that I've heard it on the radio. I thought briefly of Baiko (and this is actually what led me to post here today ^^;). How are you?

Last night it rained, and I was baking...I was completely in my element. I made Midori cupcakes for the office. A tradition we have where I work is that you bring in food when something good happens to you, and while I told them that I did this for no particular reason, I really did this because I finally accepted the state of infatuation that I'm in (well, more like I've accepted the part of me that doesn't want it to go away) and I've become a much happier person because of it. I've had a lovely disposition ever since Wednesday. It's actually kind of strange to me, I'm not used to being in a good mood for such a long period of time. o_o; I also saw the third Matrix movie on Wednesday, if you care to hear what I thought of it just ask me. ^^

Ah, but not everything is good right now...my dad's had the flu for a couple of days. :( At its worst point he had a 103-degree fever. He seems to be getting better now, though...his birthday is on Sunday, I hope he's recovered by then.

Dude, I haven't been here in forever. o_o How are you all? Good? I've been...somewhat okay, I suppose. I haven't done much of anything online in some time besides type in my other LJ. (This is because I end up going on other computers when I want to go online due to line issues, but I digress.) Also, in regards to my last entry, my rising sign was Libra at the other site too, it was my lunar sign that was maybe Cancer. ...I know way too much about this stuff.

Right now I'm typing up the midori cake recipe for one of my co-workers, and I'm wondering if I should just post it in one of my journals in case she loses it. Granted, this would open the portal to all the ranting I do, but for the most part she knows what's going on with me anyway, so it doesn't matter.

I went to Target earlier tonight...bought a few CDs. It's really weird...I only recently started listening to English-language music again, and now I think I listen to it about half the time. Mostly older stuff though. "Losing My Religion" has been stuck in my head for the past few days...trying to play something different to get it unstuck, since it's making me even more depressed about the crush and whatnot. Oy.

current mood: ~sigh~

The following was taken from my rising sign horoscope. According to this site, my rising sign is Libra, but I remember going to another site a while back and it said my rising sign was...Cancer, I think, so who knows how accurate this is. Wait, I'm talking about astrology, how accurate is any of this? ¬_¬ Er, anyway...

Bring a deeper level of communication to your romantic relationships today. You will find that there are certain elements of yourself that you are not sharing that are standing in the way of your partnership. If you are not romantically involved with someone at this time, it could be that there is a block in the way in which you communicate yourself to others. Make sure you are projecting an accurate image of who you really are.

...Oh, they're funny. :P Damn it, I'm not GOOD at projecting an accurate image of myself! It took me four years to be moderately social with my co-workers, so who knows how the hell long it's going to take me before I can even talk to him? ...Blech. I should go get ready for the football game now. (Going to Candlestick, yay~)

1:59 am - I'm still awake. x_x
I've been clearing out my room all night. Someone's supposed to be coming tomorrow (er, make that later today) to appraise the house. The last time we did this was nearly three years ago...and...I spent all night moving stuff around as opposed to clearing it out (meaning it's as messy now as it was then because I'm horrible at getting around to this sort of thing :P), then I didn't go to work and slept through the morning. This time I was going to do it on Sunday but it was too damn hot...so I'm doing it tonight. And...I think I've made progress. ENOUGH progress? I'm not sure. But, um...I think I should sleep soon. I don't want to miss work. Especially since I was super-distracted yesterday. I'm not sure if that was because I was paranoid about the condition of my throat, giddy from buying hockey tickets or because I saw the crush object three times today. Possibly a combination of the three. x_x Damn it. I was very close to telling a co-worker about the whole thing but I wasn't sure how to bring it up. I figure at this point if I tell anyone it'll be her. ...ehh.

What's this!? I found my Cartoon Planet tape! :D Ahh, joy.

How awesome is this? I don't have the money for it though. Or the time to work on it. :P But it's still pretty cool. Okay, back to cleaning.

7:09 pm - Did Trebek just say "bootylicious"?
And so another weekend is upon us. I was going to spend last weekend cleaning, but other things came up...I spent all of Monday night trying to remove a virus from my sister's laptop. It should be working okay now, though, yaaay. So...this weekend will be spent cleaning. :P And possibly buying shoes, because I need more work-appropriate shoes...seems all I have right now are sneakers, platforms and the combat boots...and I've been wearing the combats practically every work day except Friday for a while now. It's just that it's a pain to get shoes in my size...I either have to mail-order and hope they fit or buy men's shoes that are unisex enough. ...You know, I wasn't planning on ranting about shoes. I'll stop now before the entry gets any weirder.

current mood: ~sigh~

8:27 pm - ::pats her ebay feedback rating::
Yes, I know it's been forever since I've written an entry here. :/ Forgive me, won't you? I've been somewhat stressed from work for the past few weeks (viruses and other fun things), and to de-stress I've been ebaying like mad. This is not a good thing, but at least I'm not buying all insanely expensive things, so...that makes it not so bad, right? ...Bleh, I don't know. But my feedback rating's up to 40 now! :D Anyway, here's an update of what's been going on in my head since I last posted:

-Sheer underwear rocks. o.o TMI? Perhaps. But it still rocks.

-You may have noticed that Vanilla Pepsi (er, "Pepsi Vanilla") now exists. ...That's just wrong.

-The other week I bought something in this color and I wore it to work...Cynthia said that I should buy more clothes in this color because it...works well with my coloring, or something like that. (For the record, my coloring consists of dark auburn hair, "are-you-really-that-pale" skin and olive green eyes that I've been told change color depending on what I'm wearing.) Personally I wasn't sure if I'd like the color, but I did...it's all...ocean-like.

-My hair is now insanely long, the longest it's ever been. It's nearly waist length, which I guess isn't THAT long, but it's still long. How many times did I type "long" just now?

-I'm still suffering from that "crush". :/ But now that I've given it some serious thought, I don't think it's an all-out crush, it's more like...I just think he's cute. And it's odd, because he's not the type that I thought I'd find attractive and I already went over this the last time I talked about it, didn't I? Sorry.

That's enough for now. A very belated welcome to gruvngyrl!

I watched The Animatrix...it was...okay? I liked some segments more than others, I suppose. I wasn't quite sure what to make of the Second Renaissance. I wanted to stop watching soon after it started, but I stuck through it in order to begin to understand the background of this whole thing. Didn't care too much for the bashing in of heads, but...it's animated, so...not too traumatic. While the logical side of me was saying, "Oh, there's no way that would happen unless human tinkering was involved or there were defections...", the unlogical side was saying, "Robots are evil! Why did you make so many in the first place?"

...I know. It's just a program. Nothing more. So then I watched the Camelot scene of Holy Grail in Lego and now I'm okay again. Wheee.

The following was taken from Mick LaSalle's review of "Gigli":

In "Gigli," when the mentally challenged teenager says he loves "Baywatch" because "that's where the sex is," sentimental violins play on the soundtrack. And almost every time Gigli refers to his penis, a soulful acoustic guitar is heard -- the penis theme, as it were. This is a fairly demented film, but not nearly demented enough to be interesting.

o_o; I wonder if all the reviews were this bad? Ahaha.

I added a weatherpixie to my profile because I felt like it. I found it amusing because the outfit on the image I chose is almost the same as what I wore last Wednesday...the only difference is that my top was burgundy...um, yeah. But don't let the weather fool you. That's equivalent to the weather where I work. (Warm + humid + overcast = "earthquake weather". Lovely.) At home it's significantly cooler / foggier / windier.

current mood: amused

Okay, so...the Giants' mascot, Lou Seal, had a birthday party today.
...The mascot. Guests included Lou's parents, MLB mascots whose teams were on the road...SJ Sharkie was also there for some reason...um, yeah. At one point a bunch of them were out on one of the boats on the cove...there was dancing, there was a race...I thought the whole thing was funny as hell. x_x; I must find pictures!

I thought it died today, but then it came back to life. :/ This sucks, really. I'm long past my schoolgirl days! Crap like this isn't supposed to happen! ...Or...something like that.

Also, the fact that I've even thought of replacing the Yuki dork-icon with a hockey-related icon of equal or greater dork value has proven to me that I'm officially out of my j-rock phase. This saddens me, but only somewhat.

I have to compile a list of characters that died in all of the FF games prior to VI. Well, I don't HAVE to, but it would be good for something I'm trying to do for the dining room scene in my comic. I don't suppose anyone would know where I could begin to get that information? ^^;;; FFIII is the one I'm really stuck on; I could play through the others, I suppose...

Zorak: Think of a peaceful, soothing place, like...Las Vegas!
Space Ghost: Las Vegas?
Zorak: Yeah! Try it!
Space Ghost: Okay, here goes...


I leave late this afternoon. I'm...not quite done packing. I don't know where my camera is either, but the company gave everyone those disposable cameras, so I have something. Am I excited? I'm not sure. Maybe it'll sink in once I'm on the plane?

Ooh, I need to stop rubbing my eyes, that's bad for me. Um...why the hell did I stay up so late last night? And what did I want to write about?

...Oh yeah, writing out plots! More specifically, finishing them...how do you people do that? ;_; I've never been able to do that, and I've tried so many things but I always manage to stay stuck. ...Actually, it's rare for me to even get beyond the initial brainstorming. I come up with an idea that I think is cool, but when I try to go about writing the damned thing, it goes nowhere. I am at a loss.

current mood: ~sigh~
