katiroth: (LotS: Darken Rahl: Flame)
Oh no! Fandoms merging in my subconscious to become really friggin hot scary! Last night I had a dream that Gale (Friends character, FF7 OC) was Darken Rahl (show version, not book version). And uh....yeah. Somehow it really, really fits. And now I can't stop snickering at myself. At least I'm not turning into the fangirl I was ten years ago?

Speaking of dreams, Inception was an AMAZING movie. Best one of the year, most definitely. Mr. Dicaprio can still act...even though I still can't help but picture him as Jack.

Work tonight and tomorrow night, not to mention about 80 zillion things on Wednesday, so I'm going to be pretty much out of commission until Thursday. Dumb 12 hour nightshifts. At least they give me a chance to read and write, so I should have no problem finishing my story for [livejournal.com profile] legendland, and tonight I should also be able to finish Naked Empire which is so far kinda boring (But I said the same thing about Faith of the Fallen and I ended up really enjoying that, mostly for the badass Kahlan bits). I also picked up The Hunger Games on recommendation from a good friend, so it'll be young adult lit time after I'm done with Naked Empire.

...Ehehehe Gale!Darken. Would that mean I can imagine Sai!Kahlan, a la Season 1 finale? Shifty-eyes?

Oh yes. I also had major zombie dreams last night too. Strangely enough, L4D zombies, though I've been playing Bioshock and the Splicers are rather zombie-like.

Speaking of Bioshock (I know I'm late to the game here, only just now playing the first), BIG DADDIES SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF ME.

I think I would like Twilight if it weren't for the main characters. Dunno though. Alice was cool, especially at the end when she went KERPOP on that guy. Yeah. Vague spoiler. I don't care.

I'm sick. Spent the entire weekend in bed. Or...well...more accurately on my parents couch. Thankfully I only have to work five hours tomorrow. I should be able to pull it off. Tuesday may be another story, but I'll dope myself up on nyquil tonight, dayquil tomorrow and be done with it.

Pirates spoilers under here. Definitely warned. )

Other than that, I really enjoyed the movie.
katiroth: (lulz cute)
I'm quite glad that I invested in waterproof mascara Thursday night, after I looked freakishly goth after swimming on Monday night. Why am I glad? I finally watched Pan's Labyrinth tonight. And yeah, there were a few shed tears.

Totally an amazing movie.

I also had an odd phone call today. I was sitting at my computer, getting stuff ready for the Pow Wow (Which I ended up not going to, because of the drama), when my phone rang. I glanced at the caller, and thought it said "Marie." Imagine my surprise when a male voice was on the line that wasn't my brother-in-law. I go "o.O" and finally figure out it's Marle, not Marie.

So we had a good conversation. He's up at Anime North so we talked about the cons we've been to and stuff like that. I'm really glad to have him as a friend. Damned distance, though.

And Reno is molesting my curtain. Silly kitty.
katiroth: (reflection)
Whoa. I just found actual RP in Second Life. That's....wow.

So, I watched the Goonies tonight. One of my all time favorite movies, and it's been several years now since I last watched it. I had forgotten how purely awesome it is. However, I did have a weird moment. I picked up one of Patrick's friends and brought him back to my parents house and on the way I saw weird lights flashing in the sky. Like airplanes, but not.

Hehe. Now I'm going to delude myself into thinking it was a UFO.


I was reading the wiki on everyone's favorite attorney and discovered something awesome. You can create a Jack Thompson look-a-like in MK: Armageddon.

Finally! A reason to give that game a second chance!
katiroth: (the DEATH BRA)
So, we got distracted by Pirates of the Caribbean II, and watched that instead of putting up the tree. Oops. Still, it was worth it. I have an urge to check ff.net and aff.net for fiction, so I can spork my eyes out. :)

In other news, we had an incident command class at work today. It was actually pretty fascinating. Of course, whether or not it works in an actual emergency is a completely different story.

Kill Bill. Fuckin' awesome.

Anyway, I finally got to see it tonight, my university shows semi-new movies every week, and this was Kill Bill night. Anyway, I was really looking forward to it, as the girl who plays Gogo also played one of my favorite Battle Royale characters...and I'm a sucker for action movies. I love blood and gore. I'm just that weird. Anyway, I didn't get to see it in theatre's because of the whole money thing. Yeah. Meh..so finally..(I swear, I'm getting to the point!) I got to see it..and I was completely floored.

HOLY CRAP! I was sitting there with my mouth wide open for most of the movie, perched at the edge of my seat. It was like...wow. From the opening scene to the last line, it was..awesome. I adored the anime sequence telling of O-Ren Ishii's childhood, and of course, Chiaki Kuriyama as Gogo was everything I expected from Chigusa.

And the shocker at the end, when Bill is talking to Sofi..asking if The Bride knows that certain spoiler..I had sorta kinda seen it coming, but not exactly...so yeah. Another shocker.


(yes, yes. Directly c/ped from my UFF9 post)

Bat your eyes girl, be otherworldly
Count your blessings, seduce a stranger
What's so wrong with being happy?
Kudos to those who see through sickness yeah...

Over and over and over and over and

She woke in the morning
She knew that her life had passed her by
She called out a warning
Don't ever let life pass you by

I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal
When will we learn? When will we change?
Just in time to see it all come down...
Those left standing will make millions
Writing books on the way it should have been

She woke in the morning
She knew that her life had passed her by
She called out a warning
Don't ever let life pass you by

Floating in this cosmic jacuzzi
We are like frogs oblivious
To the water starting to boil
No one flinches, we all float face down

She woke in the morning
She knew that her life had passed her by
And she called out a warning
Don't ever let life pass you by...
Pass you by...

Well...I have a lot to write about...but I'm going to keep this pretty short. I don't have time to write, heh.'

Anyway, all typoes can be blamed on my mom's computer's keyboard. it's..weird. My stepdad has the seat all at n angle, and there's crap in fromt of the comouter so I can't even move the chaitr back around so I can sit straight, so I can either type sideways or pull out the keyboard and set it on my lap. Either way isn't all that enjoyable. So yeah...

I got home Thursday night after breaking my finger carrying stuff down from my dorm. That was not pleasant. At elast I don't need it splinted and I can still type. That would royally suck if I was stuck without an index finger. It's already healing though, as I didn't mess up much 0of the tissue around it. Still..annoying, and it hurts like hell occasionally. C'est la vie. Could be worse.

The weird thing is..Salem has all of 45,00 people...yet I didn't see anyone I knew until Saturday afternoon! I ran into Kim and Jessica, and did a double take as they both seem to have new boyfriends, neither of whom I have ever even seen before. O.o That was a tad odd. And by then I was going crazy, waiting for Justin to get in. See..he told everyone he wouild be getting in Saturday..turns out his flight was Sunday. I was freally beginning to freak out...and I was getting pretty depressed by Sunday night when he still hadn't showed up. LIke..to the crying stage. But then about 8ish he showed up in his new Corvette and we went cruising. T'was pretty fun.

Then Adam and Justin came by yesterday morning at 9 am to pick me up for RotK. I was like "What the hell do you think you're doing? Do you know what time it is? I'm a lazy college student, dammit!"...But I did something few women can do. I took a shower, got dressed, AND did my hair and makeup in only 15 minutes. Go me. (:

So we left, picked up Silvia, I rode with her to St. James to drop off her brother at their grandparents house, then we ewnt to Rolla, stopped to get her some pills, then raced to the theatre.

OOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111 Insanely awesome movie! I didn't eve CARE that they messed up a lot of stuff from the book, it was simply incredible! I sat there with my mouth wide open half the movie. Plus Elf-boy was frickin HOT. Is it just me, or was his hair a bit longer? :) And the part where Eowyn killed the Witch King...I had shivers. (And no people yelling at me for that being a spoiler. Go read the damned book, sillies!)...I was just..floored. And it was pretty funny, as Justin and Adam added "Mr. Anderson" to everything Elrond said..plus there were comments about an Elf orgy..*coughs* Only bad part was a little 5 year old sitting behind us, always asking his dad what was going on. That got a bit old.

And I got my grades today. Three A's, two B's...Dean's List, baybeeeeeeeeeee! *giggles* And here I thought I'd have a D in Spanish, when I had a B. Bwuah.

Hmm...oooh. Church Sunday was..incredible. The kids did their program and I was like..."whoa.." They did..good. And I also decided that if what I believe is false...I don't care. I'be got a pretty cool thing going on. I mean..think about it. We got the supreme being who loved us, people, so much that he sent his son who could do some pretty amazing things to be a sacrifice so we all could live. I mean..wow. Not a bad thing to believe in. :)

And I really need to go clean my room now. Sigh. Mom'll get mad if I don't, since I was gone from 9:15 to almost 8 last night, and watched Bruce Almighty (Awesome movie, by the way) instead. -_-;

Carlin=awesomeness incarnate.

Anyway...let's get ready for a nice long post. My roommate is trying to sleep, so I'm going to type loudly as long as possible, just because I feel like being vindictive. Maybe that's because I've recently gotten back into flaming at Shinra. Max says he's never seen me more vulgar and malicious than in those threads..True enough, I suppose. But I tend to be my nice sweet angelic self out of those. :) Although, some of the conversations I had with Amy last night...they weren't exactly innocent. >.< Mostly had to do with wrenchs...screwing...lemons...*cracks up* I had so much fun.

Speaking of last night, I went to see Underworld. That movie sucked sooo much...but I loved every minute of it. The story and dialoge was incredibly cliche, the acting mediocre..the special effects (aside from the transformations) were meh...I laughed when I shouldn't have (Half a slice of head, anyone?)..but I have enjoyed only two other movies on such a level..X2 and Pirates of the Caribbean. Sure, I loved Reloaded (as any rabid fan girl would), but Underworld was just plain fun.

Plus I have new character pictures...:D I pulled together the perfect Raine pic (www.jade-angel.net/images/charries2/raine.jpg)..and I'll probably use Erika for my new character..or maybe not. Depends on how many I can find..which probably won't be many, seeing as the film has been out for only a few days.

Anyway...college life both sucks and is awesome. I had my first psych test last Thursday...had one of the highest grades. Only 19 people in my...100+ class got an A, I was one of them. w00t. :) I also had Spanish and Algebra tests Friday...I think I did decently on SPanish...but the Algebra...whole 'nother story. -_- I hate that class. My instructor is awesome, he's a grad student, but the class..blaah. I just don't get it. C'est la vie. I can always take that class as "pass/don't pass" so my GPA isn't royally screwed over and I don't get my scholarship. Speaking of that, I really need to go to Carrington sometime tomorrow to see why I'm not getting my $500 scholarship from the Writers Hall of Fame. I could reaaaaaaally use that money right now, seeing as I just bought a $40 wig.

Yes, I bought a wig. No, not because my current haircut sucks (Because it's really quite cute)..but because I'm going to be Damry for Halloween..:D Of course, should my parents find out I spent that money on my wig...eh...there will be hell to pay. All that "Be responsible" shit. >.< Bah..it's my money! Anyway, I will have to go to the store soon and get the rest of the needed stuff. I can't wait!!!

And now, because I'm rather tired, and I must work on my new character and take a shower and whutnot..I'm shutting up.
