My Blog. :D

The holidays are here! …Almost. December 11, 2010

Filed under: Books,Movies,School,TV — Me! @ 3:57 am

I feel like it isn’t exam time without me posting a blog while procrastinating my studies. :p Though, to be fair, it is 2:30AM. Would I really be studying at this time?

…Actually, yeah, it’s entirely probable that I would be studying at 2:30AM, so I suppose I really am procrastinating while writing this blog. Mission accomplished!

I can’t believe I haven’t written since September. That is abysmal. I really have been meaning to write more often, but a) I haven’t really had much spare time since the start of semester and b) my life hasn’t been all that interesting, though that’s not really news. :p Life is never that interesting while you’re in school. However, neither of those is an excuse because I am procrastinating studying right now and I always manage to find things to ramble on about anyway, so… I just suck at blogging, is what it really comes down to. :p I swear I still love you guys! <3

So, like I said, it’s exam time here. Boooring. I’m already so sick of studying and I’ve only written 2/5 exams. My last exam isn’t even until the 22nd of December, so I don’t even get to go home for ages! Only two days before Christmas. And then semester two starts back up on January 3rd. What the hell, school?! That’s hardly a proper Christmas vacation. And speaking of Christmas, shouldn’t it be snowing about now? This is Canada. We’re supposed to get cold weather and it’s supposed to snow! Geez. I have yet to get snow here at school, and it’s making me so sad. It was also really warm today — I suppose I should clarify that, though, because we all have different definitions of “really warm.” For me, considering it’s the winter, “really warm” was 2C, because I was outside in light sweat pants, a tshirt and a winter jacket and I was boiling. What happened to below 0C temperatures? What happened to the SNOW?! UUUGGHHHH. I can’t take this anymore. It needs to snow. It’s December. There’s a town that already has 1m of snow. 1 freaking metre! Why can’t I live there? *sigh* Although apparently there’s some snow at home, so hopefully the white goodness will still be there when I come home from exams for the break. =) A girl can dream, okay?

Speaking of my winter break, it’s going to be amazing. Hockey, friends, hockey, snow (hopefully!), family, hockey, no school, hockey… What could be better? :D I’m so excited. What are you all doing for the Christmas holidays? I hope you’re all having a good winter so far. (Or summer!) Ooh, I forgot to mention Love, Actually! That’ll be watched at least twice more this holiday season. I already watched it last weekend with a friend, and I’ve been dying to see it again since. That’s by far my favourite holiday movie.

Not much else is happening… Tomorrow I’m going to get up and study for a while, and my break is going to be watching Hockey Night in Canada with my roommate, and while we do that we’re going to eat some dip that I’ve made with nachos, we’re going to make a Christmas-y cake, and we’re going to play cards. It’s going to be epic. Be jealous. ;) And possibly, after the game, we’ll watch the Vampire Diaries that aired yesterday (or, I suppose, since it’s 2:30AM, it’s technically two days ago now…) since we haven’t seen it yet.

OOH. Speaking of TV, the reason I’ve failed to study today is because last night, I watched episode 2 of season 5 of Dexter because I’ve failed at keeping up with that show this year, and I can’t stop watching the episodes… I’m already on episode 8. This is ridiculous! I just… can’t stop watching. This show is too damn good! Although, I like to think that I’m being somewhat productive while I catch up with Dexter because I’m attempting to teach myself to be ambidextrous. (“Yeah, right,” you’re saying. “Productive? Come on.” I know, I know. I really should be studying… I swear, I’ll start tomorrow and study all day! You have my word. —  Except for the game, of course. I’ve already missed three games this week because of studying, I’m not going to miss another! Especially because I’m going to have to miss the game on Tuesday night, too. UGGHHH, stupid education, making me miss hockey. Not cool.) I really do want to be ambidextrous, though. Lefties are awesome. I’ve always envied them. I think I’m actually a lefty at heart because I wear my watch on my right hand even though I’m right-handed. Some people look at me weirdly, but it’s how I’ve always done it. *shrug*

I was just scrolling past my categories and saw “books,” which reminded me of my friend’s Christmas present! And by that I mean her Christmas present to me, which is a trilogy of books recommended to me by Brit. The first one is called The Poison Study, and it’s by a Ms. Snyder. Maria V. Snyder, I think? To be honest, I can’t exactly remember the author’s name and I don’t really want to look it up… But it sounds really good and I’m really excited to read it when exams are over. =) I also have to find a present for this friend… I think I’ll get her some candles/room sprays. She loves scents and sprays and stuff, so that’s perfect for her. I think. Also, I’ve asked my parents for Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and… DAMN! Another author whose name I can’t remember. Now I feel kind of terrible. Ah, well. I’ve yet to read this book, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it so I figure it’s a must-read, especially considering it’s the holiday season now. So if they can’t get it for me, I can always use a gift-card to Chapters and buy it for myself after Christmas. Either way, this book will be read this holiday season, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Anyway, I figure I’ve blabbed enough for one night. It’s almost 3AM and I still want to watch another episode of Dexter before I go to sleep… And it’s 50 freaking minutes! I feel like watching it is a bad idea, but I know I won’t be able to sleep anyway, so I might as well watch it. (Technically, I “might as well” study if I want to be productive, but we all know that’s not going to happen. I PROMISE, THOUGH. First thing tomorrow. Studying. I swear. All day, minus three hours for the game, and possibly 45 minutes for Vampire Diaries. But other than that, study study study! I can do it.

So I guess that’s it for tonight. What will you be doing for the holiday season?

I’ll see you guys later! <3


Night of ADVENTURES September 24, 2010

Filed under: Movies,Other,TV — Me! @ 10:29 pm

It’s finally time for a blog update. I had originally planned on writing a blog when I first got moved in to my new house, but that night I was really upset and would just have written lots of sad pandas things, so I didn’t bother, and then by the time the next day rolled around, of course I’d forgotten all about it. Then school started, I got busy, and didn’t write my blog. So… I’m moved in now? Ha. I’m sure you all know that. This blog (as the title may or may not suggest – I don’t know yet, I haven’t written a title :p) is about my adventures from last night. And I use “adventures” in the loosest possible way because really, I was at my friends’ house the entire night, so it’s not like we went anywhere. But we had fun. So it’s all good. Also, I may start rambling about a certain someone and how he won’t get out of my head! But if I do, feel free to ignore. I’m trying to.

Anywayz. So last night I went to my friends’ house for the premiere of season 4 of The Big Bang Theory, which was on at 8PM. We sat, watched some BBT, generally laughed about it… Then when the show was over, one of my friends wanted to bum Doctor Who off another friend in the house, so I just chilled in the living room while they were off copying files and whatnot. So another one of my friends comes into the room, and he was all, “Hey, where’d everyone go?” And I said, “I dunno, they’re all doing their own things, I guess. Coyping Doctor Who files, doing homework maybe?” So he came to hang out with my in the living room. And here’s where things got sketchy. So, not really having much work to do ourselves, we were really bored. And when guys get bored, they do stupid things. And I did a really stupid thing. (I just realized that makes me sound like a guy. I assure you all, I’m not. I’m a girl. Just clearing that up. XD) So he goes to the fridge looking for some food, and comes back and claims that there’s no food and nothing to do. Buuut… There are hot peppers. And we should each have one.

Yeah. You can see where this led… God knows why, but I agreed to this stupid proposal – though I made sure that we’d each only eat half of one. We even shook on it. It was pretty official. Anyway, the whole one would have taken two bites, and I’ve heard stories about how ridiculously hot these were, so I wanted to make sure I only had to take one bite and not go through the agony of having to take another once I found out just how hot it really was. So we just stood in the kitchen as I took a pepper and cut it in half and each of us took a piece. I made sure I knew not to chew for more than 10 seconds or else it just destroys your mouth, and then I counted down from 3. Then we each had a half of the hottest pepper I’ve ever ate.

Even now, I can’t really say why I agreed to this. Well, actually… I think I might have an idea. But that is not news for a public blog. :p ANYWAY. So thus began the worst 20 minutes of my life. Actually, I’m probably exaggerating. It wasn’t really that bad. Apparently I’m to be commended on how well I handled it, since only this friend and another of his housemates (another guy, I might add) were the only people to have eaten a pepper that hot and not cried or freaked out or anything. So I felt pretty good about myself after that. XD Especially considering I don’t even like spicy things. (And yet I still agreed to this stunt. WTF, self?)

Anyway, so that was adventure part 1. I suppose it was more like an experience. I was instructed to eat yoghurt right after I’d swallowed the pepper, but I’m not sure it helped much. It was pretty good yoghurt, though. Peach flavoured. =)

Theeen… I don’t really know what we did next. I think we all just hung out in the kitchen for a bit before deciding on Apples to Apples – and really, if you guys have never played that game, GET ON IT! It’s so much fun! One of my friends ended up cheating and ended up with, like, 25 cards in his hand by the end of the game, so in my mind I disqualified him for being a filthy cheater. :p So I won! Haha. It was so much fun. I love that game.

The adventures continued when we decided to make brownies and watch a movie! And by “we” I mean I watched a movie with someone and some other people made brownies. :p We were going to watch some other movie, but I’d never heard of it, so he just told me to check out what movies he’d brought up with him, and of course when I saw Harry Potter on his book shelf, I knew that’s what we were watching, and I told him so. He was perfectly fine with this, and I told him he could pick which one to watch. Guess which he picked? PS and CoS are his favourites. JUST LIKE ME. :D Although GoF is his favourite book and mine’s HBP, I think, but GoF is a close second. I love it. Anyway, we watched PS and both quoted the majority of the movie. It was fantastic. Unfortunately I had to leave before the movie was over so I could catch my bus since it was already after midnight on a Thursday evening, so we still had classes the next day.

But anyway. That was my night of “adventures” that didn’t really involve any real adventures except a two-minute bus ride to get to their house. And then we stayed in all night and played games, did stupid things, and ate brownies. And watched HP. <3 And BBT.

Anyway, the point is that’s it, really. Nothing else happened. And now I have to go shower and do some readings (ewww *sigh*), so I’ll talk to you guys later! <33


Ignore my ramblings. September 3, 2010

Filed under: Books,Hockey,Movies,Other,TV — Me! @ 3:20 am

Not having the same sleep schedule as regular people really sucks sometimes. The only thing that keeps me entertained past, like, midnight, are movies, books and TV shows since no one else is really up at this time, and since my parents are home I can’t exactly play piano at 3AM. I welcome the start of school next week, not only for something to do but also to make me sleep at normal hours, so there’s a likely chance that if I’m bored, I can bother someone and make them entertain me. :p

I swear I’m going to stop complaining about this soon. I’m such a hypocrite – I hate when people complain about things all the time, but here I am, always complaining about how I have a whack internal clock. I suck.

Anywhoooo. I’m just going to ramble for a bit because I really have nothing else better to do with my time. Yesterday I was out at BestBuy with my parents looking for a replacement battery for my laptop since it pretty much can’t hold any sort of charge anymore, but unfortunately they said it would take a week to get to the store. They recommended we call HP and have them ship it directly to my house at school, since I’m moving in on Saturday, but apparently they don’t sell the model I need anymore, so they gave me the number of their resaler near school so I could go get it from them… *sigh* I think what I might just do it go to the BestBuy near school and get them to do everything for me, even if that means I have to wait longer for it to arrive. I feel like dealing with a resaler would be kind of sketchy and I trust BestBuy. It is kind of out of my way, but since my parents will be driving me up and taking me grocery shopping on Saturday anyway, they said they could drive out to the BestBuy and order it with me, and then I can pick it up next weekend when it gets in or whatever, since I think I’m going to be laser tagging with some friends next Sunday. My friend and housemate’s boyfriend are coming to visit, so we’re going to go laser tagging (I’ve been told) and the laser tagging place, if I remember correctly, is just down the street from the BestBuy, so I’m sure they won’t mind if we take a detour after we’re done there and picking up my battery. :) Although BestBuy is currently experiencing technical difficulties with their website, so I can’t check their hours of operation.

On a random note, I’m really excited for tomorrow evening. I’m not too bothered with posting this (considering whenever I post plans, they’re always ruined in some way) because it mostly involves a TV schedule and it would take something astronomical to ruin that. Anyway, there’s another episode of JONAS, LA tomorrow and Camp Rock 2 at 8:30 (I think)! Yes, I’m a child. I’m weirdly attached to JONAS and I’m actually really excited for Camp Rock 2. Sue me. Also, we taped an episode of How I Met Your Mother that was on tonight for my mother (haha), because I was watching an episode and she came down and said, “Hey… I thought Neil Patrick Harris was in this?” And of course he is, but that particular episode didn’t have that much of his character (for the 5 minutes that she saw :p) and I noticed that later there was an episode that was pretty exlusively about Barney, so I told her and we taped it and we’re also watching that tomorrow. (Even though I’ve seen it, like, three times already. Don’t give me that look! It’s a great episode. (“Perfect Week,” in case you were wondering. Season 5.)) AND I’ve been told we’re getting pizza for dinner! :D Tomorrow night is going to be so awesome. I’m psyched. And something that made today awesome was my trip to Walmart in which I got some stuff for school – well… by “stuff for school” I mean I got Ringolos and some Gatorade, among other things that, you know, I actually need (like some hooks, soap, toothpaste, etc. :p). Walmart had red Gatorade, which I haven’t found in ages, and (wait for it…)


Yeah. I’m drinking it right now. (Well, not right now because RIGHT NOW I’m typing this blog. But you know.) It’s one of the most delicious things I have ever had in my life. I just love strawberry-kiwi juice. My friend Melissa used to have juice boxes of strawberry-kiwi juice at school and I used to have Five Alive, and we’d trade juices at lunch since she hated hers and I was … eh, I was neutral, I suppose, about mine, but LOVED HERS. I named it the Godly Juice because it was so fantastic. I’ve never met anyone else who loves this juice, which is kind of a tragedy on one hand because it’s so underappreciated, but on the other hand, more for me! And I’m always alright with that. :D

I’m also currently dying to discuss The Clockwork Angel with someone. Poor Marzieh is stuck in Iran without Internet at the moment and hasn’t even read the book yet! D: (Not by any fault of her own, of course.) That makes me so sad. I can’t post anything here, either, for fear of spoiling someone… Oooh, and also the snippet of City of Fallen Angels which is found in the newly published paperback of City of Glass. There’s not much in it, since it’s not even a full chapter, but nonetheless. I shall have to await Marzieh’s return. I hope you’re not too bored in Iran, Marzieh! <33 I miss you already. (This is kind of pathetic since of course you can’t read this, not having Internet, which also sucks! *sad pandas*)

I was going to say I’ll just leave it here, but I forgot to mention what I ended up getting at BestBuy! We were on our way to the cash since my mum found a case for her camera, and my dad pointed out this CBC special that was made in honour of the 1972 Summit Series and it was on sale for $7, so… It is now mine! I can’t wait to watch it. According to the front (if I remember correctly) it’s three discs, but it’s no larger than a regular DVD case, so I’m not entirely convinced. I’ll have to see when I open it on the weekend. *excited* That was all I wanted to say about that.

So now I’m really going to shut up because this is getting waaaay too long and I feel like watching How I Met Your Mother. Or maybe The Mentalist. Something.

Good night, blog. If anyone still reads this.


I AM ON TIME. I SWEAR. August 15, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Movies,TV — Me! @ 11:59 pm

There has been so much typing done today, dearest readers. If I weren’t so in love with my computer and you and the Internet, I’d be sick to my stomach for having to watch words keep scrolling across the screen as I type this entry. Fortunately, I do love you all and the Internet and my computer, so I can find it within me to type out this blog entry. Lucky you!

Today was an interesting day, to say the least. Last night (and by last night I really mean “in the wee hours of this morning”) I looked over at my clipboard and my notebook and decided that I was going to continue writing my fic, and then got irritated because whenever I decide to write I can’t, and whenever I don’t have the time or opportunity to write, ideas come. It’s backwards. Anyway, I’ve found recently that putting on music and just having it play in the background really helps my focus for whatever reason, so I set my iTunes to organize itself based on the play count of each song, and I went through 3 hours and 10 minutes of my most played music, wrote 7 pages or so and finished my fic! It was invigorating. The problem was that I finished at, like, 5:45AM. :p And today I had to pack some clothes to take to school, because once my father got home from golfing we left to take up some more things. So I probably fell asleep around 6:15, maybe later, and then I was up at 11, packing away some tshirts, tank tops, a pair of capris or two… And then packing the car with whatever else I brought up, like some binders, my backpack, some anatomy notes from last year, a hamper, a garbage bin for my room… Anyway. It turns out that although my closet is really pretty and nicely organized with that cool thing I got from Walmart, I probably should have kept this other thing I’d gotten from Walmart instead, and then bought bins for my sweaters since I don’t hang those and I could have put the bins on the top shelf in my closet. With the cool organizer thing taking up so much space, there’s not much room to hang anything, even though there’s a bar underneath, so I might have to fold some more sweaters or something to make some room for the few things I have left at home… Argh. Moving is really a hassle when you have to find ways to fit your things into a much smaller space. I still have my bed, which has storage for things underneath. I was planning on putting my tshirts, capris, socks and underwear there, but there could be extra space and I could fold some stuff in my closet and put it under my bed so that the closet isn’t as cramped. That might work. I’m moving up on the 29th, so I guess I’ll have to wait until then to see how it works out.

Anywho, when I got back I started typing out the fic I wrote (damn, it’s so long! I don’t have the attention span for this!), did some other stuff that wasn’t really that memorable, and after dinner I watched Fame with my mum. It was the third time I saw it and her first, but I thought it was just as good as the first time I watched it when it came out in theatres last year. :) I love the scenes between Asher Book’s and Kay Panabaker’s characters. There’s one part where they’re just Lily and James Potter. Seriously. (Well, how I imagine them, anyway. IT WAS SO CUTE.) After that was over (thankfully we could finish it! There was a huge thunderstorm going on at the same time and the power flickered slightly near the end. I almost crapped my pants) we watched The Gates, which was on again tonight. Great. Show. Crap is currently in the process of hitting the fan. It’s fantastic. (Well, for some parts, not for others. CHARLIE! UGH. No spoilers. Promise.)

And now it’s 11:59PM so I’m going to submit this now and hope it gets in for August 15th! 9 DAYS UNTIL MOCKINGJAY! YAAAY.


in which I ramble a lot more than usual. August 13, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Books,Movies,TV — Me! @ 11:52 pm

I have returned. Did you miss me? I was in bed by 10:15PM yesterday and didn’t get a chance to blog, but I’m back.

Even though it’s been 49 hours since my last blog, not very much has happened… Two nights ago, the night of my last blog, I was up really late re-reading Catching Fire. In fact, I finished it at 5:15AM. At that point I went up to my room, but I started writing and couldn’t put the pen down until 6:30AM. At that point I attempted to sleep until 7AM and couldn’t, and at that point I figured it was useless and just went downstairs and had some Cheerios, deciding to just stay up all day instead and try and get my internal clock back to normal. After watching a half hour of TSN’s SportsCentre, I put on the Hannah Montana movie – it was actually quite amusing, and the guy who plays her “love interest” would make a good Peeta from The Hunger Games if his hair was longer and curly. To be honest, I picture Peeta with straight hair like the guy in the movie, but that’s how he’s described in the book, so… But filmmakers get a lot of things wrong these days; I’m sure they’re not going to pay special attention to how Peeta’s hair should look. If they’re even making a movie out of it. I’ve heard that they are from various sources and that it’s due out next year, but it’s already almost half-way through August and I’ve heard nothing about actors/actresses, potential directors, etc., so I really have no idea what’s going on. I’m not sure I’d like it if a movie was made out of the book, to be honest. I’d be curious and I’d most likely break down go see it if one was made, but I have no faith that Hollywood would do a good job with it. I’ve been so disappointed with movie adaptions of books lately, and this one is particularly gory and difficult to get right… *sigh* I guess we’d just have to wait and see. Again, if there even is a movie being made/that will be made in the near future.

Anywho, I ended up napping from 1PM – 2:15PM and then managed to stay awake until 11 when I finally fell asleep. I was asleep until 4:30AM when I suddenly woke up for no reason and couldn’t get back to sleep until 7AM, which was incredibly irritating, and then woke up for good around 12:30. That random 2.5 hours where I was awake totally threw everything off and probably didn’t help anything, so we’ll see how early I can get to sleep tonight. I did have a dream last night, though, that I’ve been told is very Inception-like. (No spoilers, though, please! I haven’t seen it yet.) I’m still confused about it, especially since I don’t remember much… But basically there were two parts. I’m not really sure what happened in the first part. All I know is that I met this awesome guy who was really nice and funny and awesome, and he seemed really into me. Then I woke up, but I’m not sure if I actually woke up or if what I was having was a dream-inside-a-dream and I was waking up from the dream-inside-a-dream so when I “woke up” I was still dreaming… I’m leaning towards the latter. Anyway, I woke up, whether it was real or not, and was disappointed because when you wake up, you never get to continue the dream you were previously having. It is the Law of Dreams. The Dream Lord from Doctor Who will tell you so. After being disappointed I went back to sleep, but I started dreaming of this guy again! Or at least, he showed up in my next dream, which is making me lean towards the dream-inside-a-dream theory because this NEVER happens in reality. Again, I have no idea what we were doing previously or where we were, but we were getting on a bus as if we were on some kind of trip, and I remember seeing my friends sitting near the front of the bus, but everyone had assigned seats and Mystery Guy and I were, of course, seat partners and we were seated near the back of the bus, away from everyone. At that point I was very confused as to whether it was reality or a dream, and I asked him that, if he was following me in my dreams or if it was all real, and I’m sure he replied and the dream ended after that, but I don’t remember what he said at all. What a shame. If I hadn’t doubted the reality of it all, I probably could have stayed dreaming a while, but once you realize it’s a dream, that’s pretty much it. *sigh* It was exciting while it lasted.

That’s pretty much it, really. Tonight I watched Jonas LA and became irritated at the abundance of sexual tension of TV these days. Seriously. Nick didn’t kiss Macy, on The Mentalist, Jane won’t kiss Lisbon even though it’s clear that they’re both in love with each other (although I don’t think Lisbon realizes it yet, but she will. Jane can totally see that she’s in love with him, though, so he has no excuse. Hear that, Jane? JUST FREAKING KISS HER ALREADY!)… And don’t even get me started on The Doctor/Amy, because there’s enough sexual tension there to… Well, I don’t know, actually. I don’t have a good ending to that sentence or a decent metaphor. There’s just a lot of sexual tension. (Or maybe I’m just crazy, but that’s how I see it.)

I’ve got 15 minutes left before I’ve missed two days of BEDA, so I think I’m just going to stop here. Tomorrow won’t be very interesting, but on Sunday I’m going to school to drop off some more clothes. This time we’re taking up summer clothes. Yeah. My mother wants to leave me with, like, two pairs of shorts and four or five tops for 14 days. This is going to be frustrating. Obviously it’s completely doable, I don’t mind wearing some clothes multiple times before I throw them for laundry unless they’re dirty, but I like to have choice, and by tomorrow I’m going to have to choose which clothes I can wear for the next two weeks. That sounds incredibly vain of me. Ah, well. I’m not too bothered, plus I have the rest of my episode of How I Met Your Mother to watch. :D I’ve been watching since before 11, and then I got distracted when Barney said, “I’ll write about it in my blog!” And thought, “OHCRAP. I HAVEN’T BLOGGED IN TWO DAYS.” Then I ran here, started blogging, and occasionally got distracted by Plurk because I’m having a hilarious conversation with Britney. And, quite frankly, it takes a while to get out over 1,155 words when you have to think of what you want to say because you don’t have a script. Anyway, I’m actually done now. I know I said that probably 300 words ago, but I’m actually done. XD I’ll see you guys tomorrow! 11 days until Mockingjay! WOOT.


I’m blogging on time! O_o August 8, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Hockey,Movies,TV — Me! @ 11:31 pm

Ohnoes! I have 54 minutes to completely write a blog before it’s officially August 9th. (Which, by the way, is the day I’m getting my timetable for uni! Woot! I don’t really know why I’m so excited because most of my classes are set since there is only one scheduled lecture time, but… I dunno. It makes it official and that’s exciting? The only things that have more than one time are my two labs in second semester and a tutorial.)

Anywho. Today hasn’t been particularly exciting. I finished game 5 of the Summit Series today and it made me want to tear my face off, and not only because we lost again. (Although from here on out, no more losing, so yay!) Anyway, apart from wanting to tear my face off at blowing a 3-0 lead (and then, by the way, going up 4-1 and still blowing that), the quality of this game was the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s completely understandable, of course, because it’s genuine footage and sound from 1972, and it was a broadcast from Russian to Canada, so obviously the quality is going to be total rubbish, but that didn’t make it any less frustrating. The colours kept flickering, the screen kept going out, they had to keep flashing to this image of a goalie and the Canadian and USSR flags… (You guys know that error message with the funny coloured bars that you get when your program isn’t running? Yeah. It was like a hockey version of that.) And that message kept coming up all the time. It’s going to be like this for the last three games, too, because they were all played in Moscow. Luckily we win all three, though, so maybe that’ll make it less frustrating. (I highly doubt it.)

I also had to clean my room today, which of course wasn’t very fun. I gathered a whole bunch of books, though, to bring with me to school. That was pretty much the only semi-exciting part. Of course I jinxed our plans of getting Chinese food by mentioning it here the other day… But The Gates was still on TV tonight and that didn’t disappoint, so at least one part of the evening went as planned. Maybe next time I’ll learn my lesson and not jinx things. (Again, I doubt it.

I think I’m just going to leave it here tonight. Titanic is on TV and I should really get around to finishing The Alchemyst if I want to have enough time to re-read the first two Hunger Game books. I’ll probably read The Alchemyst during commercials or something. The chapters are usually pretty short so it works out quite well. :)

I’ll see you guys tomorrow!


I have a pretty closet!

Filed under: BEDA,Movies,Other,TV — Me! @ 1:47 am


Well, technically *I* failed at BEDA. BEDA didn’t fail. All this failure this summer is not cool, though. I was going to make a quick post, because I was away all day and only turned on my computer an hour ago, but then I got talking to some friends about some house things that needed to be sorted out, and I got distracted. And now it’s 12:34AM so I’ve failed at BEDA yet again. :( It’s like the fourth time and yet it’s only August 8th. Woooow. I’m really bad at blogging this year.

And now it’s 1:16AM because I spent lots of time discussing that house stuff with some housemates. Wow. Alright, then, I suppose it’s time to put all my attention into this blog for a while. Today we took a surprise trip up to my house at school to move in some more things like my winter clothes and a storage thing we got from Walmart, and we cleaned a bit, too. (Rather, my mother cleaned the window/baseboard and I organized my closet and my dad, er… Well, I don’t really know what he did. LOL. I think he just randomly helped wherever he was needed.) Anyway, I actually love the way my closet is set up. It’s really too bad that it’s so small, though… It’s only 3.5 feet wide, and there’s only the one bar at the top to hang things. Since I’m so cramped for space, my mum agreed to let me get this organizer from Walmart. It’s really convenient and I love it. I put some of my winter sweaters and long sleeved tops in the four little cubbies there, and on the bar underneath I’m going to hang my skirts, tank tops, and hopefully a few summer button-up tops that I usually hang, but I’m not sure if there’s going to be enough space… That organizational unit thing didn’t take up all the space in my closet, though, so I’ve still got a bit of space on the upper bar left that I used for the rest of my winter sweaters and jeans, and I’ve got a LITTLE bit of room left where I can hang at least my two spring/fall jackets, and hopefully my winter jacket as well, but since that’s thick that might be pushing it… I’m not sure. There’s a communal hall closet outside my room where I could of course put my jacket, but I dunno, I’d just rather have it in my room if it’s possible. Although that might be problematic in the winter if it snows and my jacket gets all wet, because that’s going to get the rest of my closet all wet, so I might have to use the closet outside my room. I’m sure we could clean that up and make it a respectable closet. At the very least, it’s only my winter jacket going in that closet, so I suppose I could deal with that. We shall see, I suppose. I also have to fit my shoes in the closet in my room, which normally wouldn’t be a problem but I’ve got some high boots that are quite tall and with the organizational unit causing the tank tops to hang quite low and the other side housing my long sweaters… I’m not sure if there will be room. But I will make it work. I love those boots. <3 They are beautiful and lovely.

Anyway, wow. That wasn’t supposed to take up so much space! I ramble far too much. Hmm. The rest of my day wasn’t too eventful, since most of it was spent up at school. When I got home we had some dinner, and then I flipped between Red Eye and Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl on TV, but I somehow managed to fall asleep during Pirates even though I woke up super late AGAIN today. This is not very good, because now I’m just going to be until 5AM again and will sleep late again… And thus the cycle continues. I should pull an all-nighter some time and see if that sorts everything out. I was on the verge of doing it once – it was 6AM and I was still energized because I’d been working on something and just lost track of time, but I didn’t think I’d be able to stay up all day without someone home to entertain me so I just went to sleep for a bit. Maybe when I move up to school I could try it out if I haven’t got this sorted out a bit by then.

Oh, I just remembered, too. I cannot BELIEVE I’ve been calling it The Clockwork Princess this whole time! It’s The Clockwork ANGEL that’s coming out August 31st. Not Princess. ANGEL. This feels like that time I called it City of Angels instead of City of Ashes, its actual title. Major fail on my part. I think, in my defense, The Clockwork Princess might actually be a later book in the trilogy, but still, I should have known better anyway. My apologies to anyone who got ridiculously confused reading any previous blog entries.

Alright, I suppose that’s it for now. I’m going to grab a granola bar and watch some Secret Diary of a Call Girl, or maybe some How I Met Your Mother, or maybe Big Bang Theory… I don’t know. Too many shows to pick! I think I want something short, though. Or maybe I might check out some Criminal Minds if I decide to watch something longer. Or maybe some Who! I haven’t seen Who in a while. Maybe I’ll look at that. (I have used “maybe” far too many times. Seriously. I’m going now.)

Bye, everyone! I’ll see you tomorrow. *cough* Later today because I fail at BEDA *cough*
