This is so outdated. I'll get around to fixing it when I have the motivation again.

Due to the changing circumstances of my life, I've decided to make this journal semi-friends only. This means that while many posts will remain open, others will be subject to locks. Since a chunk of this journal revolves around fandom mutterings, it won't be a significant change to anyone who knows me on a cursory basis. However, my more questionable fangirl writings/musings will be kept under lock should wandering eyes seek to find them.

For those non-Internet-related friends (AKA people who know me from real life) who may have stumbled across this journal, kindly do ask before you friend me or I will delete you from the list. I do not wish to have my Internet life mesh with the real world. I'll grant amnesty to those who've already friended me in the past on the condition that you realize I won't be friending you back. This doesn't mean I dislike you, only that I don't associate my two worlds. I enjoy my double identity. Also note, asking does not necessarily guarantee the permission to friend me. Again, this only applies to people I know from outside the Internet. Everyone else may friend away.

I did it! I finally caught up on my LJ readings. I need to stop being a plurk-obsessed slacker and actually like check this thing once in a while. I had some rants (mostly dealing with Katsucon and its ability to make me feel completely detached from the world yay -- aside from [livejournal.com profile] realms_of_life who is love), LJ plastering my screen with game ads (no I don't care), jeers for the Maryland General Assembly for being so indecisive on the gay marriage bill and refusal to watch then new ponies (I woooon't.)

I also had kudos for [livejournal.com profile] sari_15, whose essay on the latest VK Chapter makes me feel like a lazy slug who really needs to get around to reading that chapter and analyzing it properly. I need to shake my VK annoyance in general because the developments in this chapter are actually quite interesting and could add something different to the Zero situation. That reminds me, I really should hang up my pretty Zero poster already.

It has been a very mixed week for the Nayami, with mood swings a plenty. I need to catch up on Star Driver, Young Justice, Drag Race and the manga I picked up from Katsucon. I also need to go check out King's Speech and do some other D.C.-related things. I have been having much fun with The Lost Hero, which pretty much spares itself of any of the character issues that plagued the first series. I still want my Thalia though.

I had poli-rants but they can be summed up as: MAKE UP YOUR MINDS PEOPLE.

[livejournal.com profile] danalovesbooks introduced me to Community and RuPaul's Drag Race. I really enjoyed both, but I'm more likely to watch the latter because of reruns. I'm too lazy to remember to watch real TV anymore. We also watched "Street Fight," which is an amazing political documentary and makes me want to rent "The War Room" stat. I do love a good political documentary. Speaking of political, who was the idiot publicist that let the Bieb thing talk politics to Rolling Stone? I hope that guy got fired. That cover didn't help much either.

I actually watched the Grammy's this year, mostly because my father did. It was amusing to learn the only Lady Gaga song he knows is "Paparazzi." I also realized my oblivious love for Ke$ha from listening to her bouncy songs on my radio. I love bouncy dance music. And I admit that Rhianna and Eminem's performance of "Watch Me Burn" was gorgeous. It's sad that the only rapper I like, outside maybe of early Coolio, is the very person I can't stand. But he captures such sincere emotion and rawness in his lyrics and his presentation that I have to admire the true artistry in what he does. His songs are good, even if I think he is a terrible person.

I reserved Okamiden. I have no idea when I'm going to play it, but I did anyway. Just like I have no idea how I'm going to relaunch the Geass conversations, but I really want to because I miss them terribly, especially when I'm doing EPIC things with Lelouch. I also have really been enjoying the chance to talk DenYuuDen with more than just one person. LOL.

I have so failed completely at managing my time this week, and work destroyed me. Hopefully, things will smooth over during Katsucon Friday. I'm pretty excited about it.

First, Geasscast has given me AMAZING times lately. From our chaotic AU event to updating Nunnally. I am so grateful for all you guys, you don't even know. ;;

Second, [personal profile] stigmateyes get-o! And now those of you who may not already be aware know why I have been mostly absent this week.

Which brings us to point the third, mostly brought on by fangirling with [livejournal.com profile] realms_of_life over the weekend. She who knows far more about book canon than me. I will remedy this soon! Either way, it's pimping time.

So if you've followed this journal at all, you know that Densetsu no YĆ«sha no Densetsu (look at me use the less dorky name. >>) has been my greatest love since Geass. While I adore Star Driver, Denyuu provided me with richer plot and characters. When it felt like it. So I'm going to show it off in the best way I know how.

With trolls. Seriously, this series has some of the most interesting and complex trolls ever.

Cutting for large images and such. )

So I didn't realize "The Thief" was actually a children's book and spent 15 minutes searching through YA before I finally learned the truth and had the super-fun experience of crawling around on my hands and knees while trying to find it in the shelves. Note to self, get Thief series on Kindle next time. I wanted to pick up "The Broken Kingdoms," but it wasn't there so I went with "The Giver" since I've never read it and the last of the "Shadows" series by Brent Weeks. I have to decide whether I want to stick "Firestar's Quest" somewhere in there, possibly after the Weeks book to give me something easier to read. The first two should be a breeze after all.

Oh, a coworker also gave me the "How to Train Your Dragon" artbook, which is lovely, and the Justice League, which I need to get around to watching. Probably I'll start on that today. CFUW kind of devoured my time yesterday. [livejournal.com profile] realms_of_life and I spent the other week watching "Batman/Superman:Apocalypse," which terrified me with the realization that the old man I spent the entirely movie wanting to go away was actually Granny Goodness (shudder) and "Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths," which was just fun because poor Batman. I also discovered Amazon gives me Buffy episodes for a buck and might have spent at least $10 on that this week. I won't be doing that anymore since I have $400 dollars on my checking account, which I shouldn't, and I don't want to mess with that money unless I need it for gas and food. Ugh, I have to call and sort that out.

Also, I miss the Geass recap chats. What happened? People weren't around on the holidays, and I haven't seen them since. I'd post them myself, but I'm super lazy about doing screeshots and summaries; I just like to talk.
tempestuously: ([blackcat] liek OMG squee!!1)
OMG so many books! Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] gaisce. The kitties are sniffing the box right now. I'm very excited about the gay superhero one. :D

Dude, no seriously dude, when I come downstairs to see it totally trashed and beer bottles EVERYWHERE on a weeknight while I'm being constantly reminded that I need to give a rent check (every single day after I replied the first time that I would have it Friday), yes I'm going to be preachy. Especially when I have to holler downstairs at 3 a.m. that people are being too loud since I have to work the next day and when I wake up to find guys I don't even know having spent the night in my house. All this after having heard my roomie is out of a job. Yes, I'm going to vocally question her financial choices. I am footing half the bill here and I don't want to know that a large portion of her money is going toward partying when she doesn't have a job. It concerns me. As does having my house thrashed. I don't want to preach and be all MOM about it but COME ON. It's just irresponsible and disrespectful. And seriously, the decision to ask me for the rent check while I'm asking why there's so much alcohol around and why random people are in my house at 9 a.m., not smart.

Also, I worry about what all these dying animals mean. I really do.
tempestuously: ([gravi] nobel prize for evil?)
Even though I have already been complaining on Goodreads about this, I can always complain more. Because really, the self-censorship of "Huckleberry Finn" deserves as much complaining as is possible. Read all about it. Now, I don't think this was done for malicious reasons, but it is still stupid beyond measure.

Other things that are stupid beyond measure: My roomie throwing away my food for two whole nights because I left it downstairs and didn't put it away. Did I mention she left whole bowls of pasta sitting around my kitchen for four days and when I asked her to clean them, she had to wait until she recruited her bf? Oh, and she took my very expensive orange juice to a party and drank it all since she allegedly believed it to be hers. I don't know about anyone else, but I remember when I buy drinks. And if I don't, I ASK before taking an entire carton to a party.

Moving along, I am sad I will have to take a break on my kitty series once I finish the first set since I should probably read a book that I can't finish in two days for a change. I miss reading on my Kindle. I hate the stupid DMP Amazon and Adobe have against each other since virtually every digital library uses Adobe and Kindle cannot read them. I enjoyed reading in bed too, which was so much easier with Kindle. That said, I can't exactly shell out $6 every time I want to read a book. That could get pricey. I am le torn.
tempestuously: ([geass] take it like a man baby)
I was just about to sleep and then I came across some major spoilers for the Buffy Season 8 comic in my wiki searching from yesterday's Logo Buffy marathon. All I can say about these spoilers is it's a dang good thing I don't care about comic canon. How could they do that? I'm more horrified than any of the stuff the Angel show pulled. Simply horrified. Oh and angry.
tempestuously: ([cat] too awesome for you)
I am obsessed with Warriors and do nothing but read them. Except for now when I'm marathoning S4 Buffy. I love the episode where Faith comes back, so psychological. I also found out I read 26 books for 2010; this is actually a great accomplishment for me. Also a plus that I'm FINALLY not sick.

Oh yeah, my birthday ice cream cake melted.

If anyone asked for cookies and did not receive them by this point, let me know so I can send a different set or something.
tempestuously: ([cat] too awesome for you)
Lol I forgot to get my cake, but Medieval Times and True Grit were awesome. Sue even got herself the knight's favor in the form of a pretty pink rose. D'aww. Also, True Grit taught me that even the most hardened cowboys can sit down for a civil conversation

Also, my Kindle arrived. Sue and I are fully entertaining ourselves downloading samples of the silly gay romance novels. I'm sure my father will be happy to know that's where his birthday money for me goes toward.
tempestuously: ([ph] if bird or devil)
Cold is mostly gone, which means I might be able to eat my cake. Yay. I still can't believe I left my Inception at my father's house. Ah well, at least I can spend my bday with friends. That always perks me up.
tempestuously: ([ph] if bird or devil)
My brother watching TrueBlood in Spanish with me and making up his own script is possibly the highlight of my day. I enjoy his interpretation of Eric as a sex-fiend who apparently looks like he came from "Days of Our Lives."

And now I'm going to go die in my bed and hopefully wake to a healthier self so I can function at work tomorrow and finish up my week productively.
