081: Have You Ever Licked A Lamp Post In Winter?

[ I’m gonna make this quick. I’m tired. ]

★彡 Finished Dragon Age: Origins a few days ago. I am queen of Ferelden, Alistair is king, and my DA:O BFF Morrigan disappeared with the baby she made with Alistair. By Bioware standards, this ending is happy. LOL. I’m pretty bummed about Morrigan leaving though. I think she had a great bond with my Grey Warden, and she did tell her that they were like sisters. This came from a character who generally hates other humans, so it is infinitely more meaningful. I can’t wait until Inquisition. Now I understand why everyone was so excited during E3 when she showed up in the trailer. Well, on to the next one. I am running around Kirkwall in DA2 at this moment. Let’s see where Hawke’s story goes.

☆彡 Mark’s job at Books-A-Million allows him to borrow books for two weeks, so he borrowed Time of Contempt for me. Yay! Glad to see Geralt and Yennefer reunited again.

★彡 Everything is Fang and nothing hurts.

☆彡 I used to get angry at myself for being calm towards people who were aggressive to me, but I am learning to accept it as one of my few redeeming qualities and stop punishing myself for it.

★彡 Shoutout to Hulu Plus for making an app for the 3DS. Now I can catch up on animes during lunch breaks. Yeah, I know. I’m a giant loser. In other news, this giant loser finally started on Mawaru Penguindrum. Pretty good so far.

☆彡 Things I Don’t Appreciate: being yelled at by a cat because I stopped petting him for 0.05 seconds.

★彡 As always, I write nonstop every month of the year except November. I’m not necessarily calling it quits for NaNoWriMo. I’m just stumped.

☆彡 My nephews were playing Ocarina of Time last weekend, and it’s just mind-boggling to think that I was around their age when I first played it. They had to experience the headache called the Water Temple…and then gave up to play Minecraft. LOL. The greatest aspect of that moment was when my sister started humming “The Lost Woods” and Jonny asked her: “How do you know Zelda?” Her response was: “Excuse me?!” I was dying! She is right though. We lived and breathed Ocarina of Time when it first came out. Jonny and Josh have no idea. Yeah, getting nostalgia just thinking about it. :’)

★彡 OYASUMI PUNPUN IS A TRAP. DON’T READ IT. (No, go ahead and read it. It’s just depressing.)

☆彡  My next splurge will be on blankets. I’m just going to buy ten different types of blankets and bury myself under those shits.

★彡 The Big Show’s return to WWE was so anticlimactic. He spent all these weeks getting bullied and then getting revenge only to come back and get bullied again for the sake of a shot at championship. I…don’t even want to talk about the route they’re taking with Kane either. Kane is one of my favorite wrestlers. He is definitely in my top 10…if not 5. So, I always get really touchy about the decisions they make with him. It’s sad. I know. I was fine with Team Hell No because it was hilarious most of the time, but I guess we’ll just have to see where this goes. I’m not even going to pay too much attention to this Big Show thing because it will likely be a rerun of the “Big Show, go do something degrading to keep your job!” type thing again. Blah, blah, blah, John Cena is a still a big dork and that’s about everything happening in WWE right now.

☆彡 I hope when Mark and I see Desolation of Smaug the theatre is empty again. The last time we went we were the only ones in the theatre and it was awesome. We made all the stupid jokes we wanted because we didn’t have to worry about disrupting anyone else. Actually, we spent a good 5-10 minutes laughing like hyenas when Thranduil pulled that dick move in the beginning. Let’s hope we can do it again this year. *crosses fingers*

Eventful month so far. Let’s see how the next few weeks go~

051: Wounds That Heal

tumblr_m4u9ubrexh1qequx2o1_r1_500

(Whoever owns this CD collection knows how to party.)

☆彡 Every time I see the attic scene in Kill Bill, I remember all those frantic days spent searching for the origin of that song (By the way, it is called “Kaifuku Suru Kizu/Wounds That Heal”. It was performed by Salyu for the film All About Lily Chou-Chou–a soul-crushing movie). It is beautiful. Listen.

★彡 I am sick again. Yay! My annual sinus infection torture fest started in full swing on Christmas Eve, and hasn’t stopped tormenting me since. As Mark said, 2012 isn’t done shitting on us yet. Not until we both meet the new year worse than how we started. Fuck you, 2012.

☆彡 Oh, yeah. Christmas. It was great. We received a lot of wonderful gifts. Of course, there is the 360 that we both saved up money for, and agreed to share ownership of as a Christmas gift. No regrets at all there. We also received a buttload of giftcards, shirts (for Mark), Bath and Body Works stuff (for me), a wok, a blanket that we keep wrasslin’ eachother for, candy, DVDs, art supplies (for me), writing supplies (for me), action figures (for Mark), and…I believe that was it. My brain is scrambled right now. I’m sorry if I forgot anything. Overall, I’m incredibly grateful. Thanks! >_<

★彡 Speaking of gifts, Mark bought Minecraft with one of his gift cards, and he has been inseparable from that game ever since. On the first day, he played for literally 12 hours. I haven’t really had the energy to play until last night. I won’t lie. It is incredibly enjoyable. Since I was pretty much out of it when I started, Mark told me to just join him in co-op, and mess with things until I get a feel of the game. A few hours later, I’m making chests full of weapons, and reconstructing our entire house and exploring underground caverns. It’s so awesome.

☆彡 This entire time, Mark and I thought that the XBox was already set to HD. So, when we first started playing it we kept gasping at how amazing HD game play is. As it turns out, our XBox wasn’t even set up for HD yet. Yesterday, we got the proper cord, set up HD, and both yelled: “WHOOOOAAA!” for what was probably an entire minute. I mean, the standard definition already looked very beautiful. I didn’t think it could get anymore beautiful than that! This means that we now have to replay all types of games that we thought looked lovely, and see how lovely they really look. Thank you, technology. ~_~

★彡Aziz Ansari is funny as hell. I probably mentioned that already.

☆彡 I bade farewell to Hulu…because it never works. It doesn’t work on either of the consoles or the computer. Whenever we contact Hulu about it, they tell Mark and me that it is our fault somehow. First, it was our internet connection. So, we tested Hulu at someone else’s house with their internet. Then they basically tell us that our laptop and Wii sucks (oh hell no). So, we try it on the XBox 360. They tell us our XBox is old (hell…no….). We put it on hold for a few weeks. During those few weeks, we get a different internet company and this new XBox. Not for Hulu, but for ghastly customer service on the internet side, and broken XBox on the XBox side. Now they tell us that our new XBox and internet sucks. So, Hulu can suck my balls. I’m going to test crunchyroll as a source of anime, and see how that goes. Everything else I can watch on Netflix pretty much. *shrug*

★彡 We finally finished Sword Art Online. I really love it! I’m thinking of watching it again whenever I get the time. ^_^

☆彡 Link always finds a random box to dwell in. This time, an approximately 7″ x 6″ box that came from…I don’t even remember. This is pretty much all the gift he needs. If we buy him a toy, he’ll ignore it. If we buy him a cat playground, he’ll ignore it. If we put a random box aside, he’ll become obsessed with it.

★彡 The concept of cool and uncool is idiotic. What is strange now will be considered the norm in a few years, and what is the norm now will be strange in a couple of years. It keeps repeating like this over and over. Only a few people ever notice this cycle and say to themselves: “Well, that’s pointless. I’m just going to do what I feel like doing.” Actually, it’s that small group of individualistic people who actually set the so-called “trends” in society because only they are capable of new ideas and new approaches to life. This is why some people are genuinely passive to terms like “weird”, “strange”, “unpopular”, “uncool”, and etc. To be like everyone else and never think for one’s self is the ultimate insult in their minds.

☆彡 I really want to see After Earth. Maybe it will restore M. Night Shymalan’s credibility as a director after the monstrosity that was The Last Airbender.

★彡 The english translation of Hyrule Historia is almost here! *tosses confetti everywhere* I miss purchasing artbooks. It’s one of those things I never get tired of looking at. To this day, I still spend hours skimming through my Clamp, Escaflowne, and Nier artbooks. I would love to add an artbook from Shigeki Maeshima to my collection.

Ugh, I don’t feel like writing anymore. Going to take a power nap or something. Before I go, I’ll post some Shigeki Maeshima stuff. >_>

★彡 I wish I could update this thing on a daily basis, but I’ll just try to updates as frequently as possible.

★彡 I am starting my yearly Sailor Moon marathon…by completely skipping the other seasons, and going straight to Sailor Stars. I’m dangerous, guys. Watch out. Skipping seasons over here. On a semi-serious note, this marathon is long overdue. Sailor Moon always erases all the feels I don’t want to feel…except for the times when Usagi starts crying. The Japanese VA for Usagi makes the saddest weeping sounds ever. Then they add that sad violin version of the Sailor Stars theme, and then my heart shatters into a million pieces. Otherwise, this anime continuously purifies my soul every time I watch it. It’s true.

★彡 Then there is Berserk…which tends to do the complete opposite of purifying my soul…but not this week! The gang is finally getting close to Elfhelm! They even saw branches! Branches, son! *throws confetti around* I probably shouldn’t get too excited though. Once more, The Skull Knight’s warning to Guts that Casca may not want what he wants has popped up. It’s definitely foreshadowing…and anyone who thinks for a second that Casca will become herself again and have this big romantic reunion with Guts is immediately pimp slapped by that premonition. It’s the truth. I don’t know why we Berserk fans do this to ourselves. *sigh* Oh, well. October 28th is the next release date, and that’s something to be excited about. Anything is better than seeing ‘Until Next Time’ on the final page of a chapter. The worst feeling in the world.

★彡 Mark and I finally finished season 2 of The Walking Dead. One word: Michonne. Well, yes, there are many other words I have about this series…but mostly Michonne…and “I can’t believe I’m missing the third season”…and more things along those lines.

★彡 There is something that I am really excited about, but I am also super nervous about it. If everything does not go right on Monday, when said event will occur, I will…probably cry. There is a good chance I will cry. I will definitely, 100%, cry. As Mark said, though, I just have to do my best. As long I put my best foot forward, I have the right to be proud of myself. So, I’m going to start preparing now. Even though it’s Friday, I am going to get everything ready. Nothing will go wrong unless some force of nature works against me. I can do this! >_<

★彡 Hulu, please stop being a dick. I want to watch Serial Experiments Lain. Thanks.

★彡 I have to learn to make Moo Goo Gai Pan.

★彡 “Zelda is overrated.” — Peasants

★彡 Halloween is right around the corner. Aw yeaaaah~ Do I know what I want to be? Nope. I don’t know if I’ll even be anything this year. If I had to be something, though, it would be the Cat in the Hat. Actually, I’ve been wanting to be the Cat in the Hat for a long time. And not the disturbing sexy versions of the Cat in the Hat. Just the regular kind. That would be fun.

★彡 As much as I adore Link, he drives me crazy sometimes. He is basically a two year old that never grows up. On one hand, he can be really adorable when he’s off in his own world being curious and clumsy. On the other hand, he has so much energy that he wants to just…attack everything. And, no, you can’t tell a cat to stop. Cats will pause, but they don’t stop. Link will often pause, meow at us, and then continue. It can be tough. Taking care of anything or anyone can be tough.

★彡 As funny as these Big Bird jokes are at times, I am far from laughing at the idea of PBS being gone. It is a very valuable channel. It has raised generations of children and enlightened millions of adults. It’s the type of thing I would like to pass on to my children someday. In many ways, PBS has become a part of our society. I can’t imagine why, of all the of issues in this country, PBS is even in the top 100 things to handle for Mitt Romney. I understand you need to save money…but PBS? *sigh*

★彡 How did I become obsessed with coffee? I used to be completely nonchalant about, and would have a cup every now and again, but now I can’t imagine a day without it. Especially the coffees they sell at the Asian farmer’s markets. It’s so delicious. Fuck…

★彡RANT ALERT. I should do that more often…warn people about that shit. I digress. I am already reluctant to make new friends, but nothing makes me want to say “oh hell no” like being used as some type of token in a person’s weird friend-collecting hobby. In other words, I don’t want to be anyone’s “this is my nerd friend” or “this is my friend who can draw” or “this is my black friend from my collection of black friends”. I’m just Kerri. Take the good in me and the bad in me, or don’t take anything at all. I really don’t want to stand around trying to fit anyone’s stereotype of me. That has to be the most aggravating thing, you know? I never said that because I was shy that I was desperate for friends. I never said that because I preferred not to talk that I had nothing to do but listen to others talk. I definitely didn’t tell anyone that I was pure, innocent, or immune to emotions like anger and sadness. I don’t want to be dragged into anyone’s bullshit. I just want to have a pleasant time wherever I am. That is pretty much my rant.

★彡 I have come to see bad situations as steps rather than walls. I can never ascend this metaphorical staircase called life unless I am willing to trip on a few steps along the way. It happens. What is the point in stopping, or going back to the bottom again? Really, when I look at everything in a staircase mentality, I visualize the importance of the saying ‘keep going’. Whether you’re a logical or emotional person, the only thing that will satisfy you in life is to keep rising.  No matter what.

★彡 I haven’t done a weekly challenge in a LONG time. Wow. I should definitely fix that this weekend…especially considering the fact that I’ve yet to completely pass any challenge. Then again, I set really high goals that I know I will not be able to reach. I should do things more attainable next time — even if they seem to lack challenge at first.

…I really don’t know what else to add…because I’m lazy…and it’s the weekend.

Maybe I will add something tomorrow. For now, I’m just going to do some tumblr then some gaming and then some writing and then I’ll probably end up sleeping when the sun is coming up and hating myself. Yay~

That is it. Good night.
