Writing to you from pinkmellon's luxury box [12 Mar 2006|10:07pm]
I'm fine, I arrived safely, the pepto seems to be working. The train wasn't as late as this post, I had something to eat before I made the post.

More to follow. *hugs*

My Stomach is Trying to Kill Me [12 Mar 2006|09:19am]
[ mood | nauseated ]

I wanted to write a nice post about going to the Ontario Science Centre, but I'm extremely nauseous. I have no idea what happened.

I'm going to Montreal for a week. More on the OSC trip when my stomach isn't trying to kill me.

She has arrived! [30 Jan 2006|11:14am]
Physh has successfully and safely arrived in Hamilton for her visit. She will be here until February 4th. She's mine and I'm not giving her back. :P

Yes, I'm kidding. ^^;

I have been doing a lot of babysitting lately. I do hope tbk and asmeer are going to be ok, they hardly seem to see each other lately.

umm... that is all.

Like the icon? I call it "called in DEAD". If I, you know, made it myself instead of nicking it from the WoW LJ Community. ^^;

A Coherent Livejournal Entry [25 Dec 2005|10:09pm]
[ mood | content ]

The last couple of entries have been weird and vague, so:

Ides, Darken and I rented a car to drive from Hamilton to Cornwall. We nearly didn't get the car. Apparently there is a policy that the driver's name and the holder of the credit card must be the same. I cannot drive, but I have the card. Ides doesn't have a card, but she has her license and she is a good driver. The place she finally found, Avis, was the exception, until this Saturday when they had an "immediate policy change" and did it the previously mentioned way. Fortunately the person who served us seemed to think it was stupid, so she opted to have "not seen" the fax about the policy change, and we got our car. Huzzah!

We left for Cornwall at 5 AM on Friday. Ew. The traffic astounded us, as there wasn't much. We cruised through the Toronto part at 110, and kept going. We got to Cornwall an hour before Ides anticipated, so we hung out at her place for a bit and napped before going to Sooth's for a party. I got to see all sorts of wonderful people, including pinkmellon. She got the date wrong, so it's a good thing I called her. We handed out presents, ate a delicious supper, and chatted for ages. I was sad that I had to head out.

Over the 24th I spent time at home with my family, and played some WoW on dialup. Whoo hoo, dialup. A 36 MB patch took 6 and a half hours to download. It was fun, I swear. Like watching paint dry without the delicious fumes. Tonight we went to my grandparents' house and had a lovely turkey dinner.

The Haul:

Sooth - Oriental bowls, chopsticks, chinese theater masks (small, framed), hairpin versions of my chibi angel wings from Gaia. (ps sooth, big hugs, I'm sorry about your christmas. call me if you want once I get back to Hamilton.)
CrabAppleRed - Shiny Hairpins, her presence.
Ides - Psychology Flash Cards
Seferina (I think) - Timmies cupons.
Shadowgate - I can't remember if you got me anything, but I got hugs!
Mum & Dad - Pants and a sweater.
Andrew - Oriental Meal set (two settings), booklight/radio.
Megan - Necklace
John - The DVD of Willow (yaye!)
Logic (After New Years) - My map of Lordaeron framed (yaye map!)
Jamie & Chris - Arcanite Transmutes (WoW)
Naina & Grandpa - More clothes.

At the moment I am on my mother's work computer at my grandparents' house and playing Solitaire until I should go to bed. Ides says we need to leave Cornwall at 5 AM because there's bad weather coming. She sucks. Fortunately I should be safely home by the time she reads this, so she can't throw me out of the car. XD

I love you all, merry christmas, and I hope to see a number of you on New Year's Eve, or at least later in January. ^^

Merry Christmas! [25 Dec 2005|10:33am]
[ mood | excited ]

Sheeba is safe!

(Backstory: Sheeba was our dog from a while ago, she is getting rather old, and last night she didn't come in for food so we were worried, but this morning she has returned.)

The house is full(?) of romping puppies. Realistically, there are only two, one female (Julie) and one male (Sabre). They are hyper.

I will probably get called in to open presents soon.

Not dead [24 Dec 2005|09:43am]
I am not dead.

I arrived in Cornwall safely. It was wonderful to see my friends again. We had all kinds of interesting chats. I miss them all already. I want to pack them into boxes and bring them back to Hamilton with me.

pinkmellon is coming to visit in January. Sans cats.

I am very tired.

Hey, it's an Update! [23 Nov 2005|08:51am]
For those of you who have difficulty with your perception of time *cough* you *coughcough*, Logic and I have been dating for two years.

Thank you, Ides and Darken!

Also, as a probably less interesting note, World of Warcraft has been out for one year, today.

I wonder if the llamas in charge of VIA Rail's switchboard have been sacked yet. [08 Oct 2005|02:14pm]
So I'm at home. We managed to get my laptop hooked up to the dialup here, so it's not so bad.

I was delayed rather late getting home, because of an accident near the station in Oshawa (the first stop the train makes). It wasn't that there was an accident, it was that they stopped before Oshawa because we were letting the Montreal to Toronto train stop there, then told us they couldn't stop there but they'd be stopping in Port Hope, then we did stop at the Oshawa station and people got off, then that we would be able to go once the Montreal to Toronto train went by, then that we would have to BACK UP and go through the yard because of the accident. *sigh*

Fortunately, Ides and I were on the same train, and when we got to Belleville, I went to "visit" her in her car until we got to Kingston, then after we pulled out of the Kingston station, Ides came and sat with me in my car until we got to Cornwall, where my mother met me, and her mother met her. It was wet.

I went to my grandparents' for dinner, and it was very tasty.

Today, we're having my Aunt Niki and her kids (in theory) for dinner and we're having roast chicken. Tomorrow (after I go home), my family is having a turkey dinner. Ah, well. Two outta three ain't bad. ^^

But yeah, my brother didn't bring his computer, so no randomly logging into WoW for me! ^^ Oh, but I did install MSN as there's a non-suck tastic version of MSN out for Macs now. Hurrah...

In more WoW related news...

Extra Warchief's Blessing..?Collapse )

Bah! Faith! Faith is for priests, paladins and engineers! [05 Oct 2005|10:57am]
I'm going home for Thanksgiving.

I'm taking the same train as Ides, but I'll be home about a day longer. Friday is RIGHT OUT. I'm being dragged to my grandparents' for foodstuffs. I'm not sorry. ^^ I'm going back home on Sunday late-morning. If someone wants me to visit, pokes me about Saturday.

Or... y'know... y'could not... whichever. *hides*

Oh, and happy birthday to me, I'm 22 now.

Another 60! [03 Aug 2005|11:40am]
My Troll Mage on Burning Legion hit level 60 last night...

...during one of the worst UBRS raids I've been on. On the third wipe, I leveled on one of Drakkie's guards. I left the group after people said that we'd get more people, but we'd have to go through the entire thing again, sans bosses. Why does that make people think it's any better? I think it's *worse* than resetting, because bosses = swag.

Then was the Dire Maul east run from HELL. The priest was mouthy and obnoxious and went "omg" or "wtf" every single goddamn time we fought something. And I really disliked that the priest never called me anything other than "mage". I have a goddamn name. Other people were using it. "Shand" does not take that many more characters than "mage". Plus on the final boss of Dire Maul east, the wildshaper, who drops a ring I want two of, I aoe'd the first mob of imps that came down nicely, but a second wave came in just as he died and murdered me in three seconds. The priest hearthed out after seeing the loot was nothing they wanted and left me dead. The warlock tried to revive me with her cables, but I ended up spirit rezzing. Entire thing cost me nearly 2g and I didn't get anything out of it, particularly since they ignored my request to go to DM west for a moment to get my mage water quest. Guh, I hate people.

Specifically I hate trying to instance on Burning Legion. Most of my experiences have been awful. People also don't use Master Loot, ever. It boggles my mind.

I'm going to go take sanctuary on my alliance server now.

The Phaaaaaaaaaaaantom of the Opera is here... Insiiiiiiide your miiiiiiind... [19 Jul 2005|02:45pm]
[ mood | creative ]

Could someone give me a good summary of what happens in the Phantom of the Opera? I'm also curious if there's a novel I could read, and how different it is from the play/movie.

Yes, I haven't seen it yet. Sue me. :P

Done! [16 Jul 2005|02:54pm]
[ mood | Thoroughly Pleased ]

I have finished reading Book 6 of the Harry Potter series.

'Twas delivered to my very doorstep 'round 10 AM and I finished it at 2:49PM.

I will not make a "cut for spoilers" post, but when those interested in the subject have finished it on their own, I would be more than happy to discuss this.

These are my "non-spoiler" thoughts on Book 6.

1) This book is, in my opinion, 100% better than Book 5.
2) Ms. Rowling has "kicked it up a notch".
3) Draco fangirls may find themselves pleased.
4) Hakumei will be able to resume one of her favorite passtimes during the movie version of this (Kumei-chan, if you don't know what I mean, ask me after you finish the book).
5) Romance abounds, it's about damn time.
6) To quote John Lennon, and Dumbledore, "All you need is love... doo doo... doo doo doo..."

The world IS in fact Banana shaped. Hmm, that explains a lot... [04 Jul 2005|05:35pm]
I have safely arrived. It's hot outside, but the basement is cool. Ahh...

But I bet he gives *great* lip! [03 Jul 2005|11:02am]
Monday:
Tiredness, headachey.

Tuesday:
Went to Ides' house and hung out for a while. We watched the somewhat cut version of Silence of the Lambs. Now I want to watch the other two movies. We also went swimming, then a bunch of us got together and went to a movie. Surprisingly, Bewitched is actually really good. I like how rather than making the movie a remake of the tv show, it's about a movie actor (Wil Ferrel) that isn't too popular right now after his last few movies bombed horridly, and is trying the small screen where they will be remaking the tv show Bewitched. They need a Samantha, and Ferrel sees Isabel, Nicole Kidman's character, wiggle her nose perfectly, and wants her. Hilarity ensues. Helps Isabel really is a witch... Afterwards a bunch of us went to Timmies and talked for... about an hour and a half. Then I slept over at Ides', and we hung out some more on Wednesday until Ides had to work.

Wednesday:
Very little

Thursday:
Got the RAM for my computer. I don't recall what else. Oh, yes. Telephone tag, Haibane Renmei, and internet out for hours.

Friday:
Canada Day! Got up at 5:30. Damn chirpy birdies... Went to Sooth's around 2-ish, and we talked about clocks. He got me to try FFR. I should try to practice that today... we played more telephone tag, trying to figure out what was going on. Poor Physh was supposed to join us, but the alternator on her friend's car broke in Alexandria, so she didn't get to. *sends hugs from a distance* Then I went to my grandparents' house, where I ran around helping out anyone who needed help. Just as dinner was about to start, it started to pour. I spun around in the rain for a bit, then helped move the tables under shelter and shuffled everyone inside for foodstuffs. mm... lamb. It stopped very shortly afterwards. It cooled things down a little though. Then my wonderful friends came to get me while I was just about to start eating dessert (I had been helping serve everyone else). I bolted down my dessert and went off to the park. We had about 12 people total, including cousins and friends. It was nice to see Noot again, and his M-E. We sat around and talked, and sang, until the fireworks started. There was some speculation as to whether they were OUR fireworks, because they were launched from across the river. We usually sit on a little hill, so our view was greatly obscured by a bush. Stupid people deciding to stand and blocking the view for everyone else *grumble*. The fireworks weren't that impressive, but then, I really do come for the company. I wasn't able to stay over and enjoy the rest of the evening, so I went home and went to bed. ^^

Saturday:
Holy crap, sleeping in! woo! Went to Ides' and we hung out. We were to watch Formula 51, and it took quite some time to set everything up, and we kept making fun of Devin. We're so mean. ;_; Sorry about that, Dev. We like you, we promise! Unfortunately, the picture was in black and white, so Ides and I added the "colour commentary", like "those are supposed to turn pink" and "her hair is auburn". I had to leave during the sex scene in the bathroom. I angsted. ^^ On the plus side, I helped Ides set up her WoW account, and used my credit card since the game insisted. It's such a whore. It's being used for my account, Logic's account, his brother's account, twan's account, and now Ides' account. I don't mind a bit, I just hope that Blizzard won't freak out. It's not like I'm doing it to farm or anything, it's just most of the people I know don't have credit cards. I must admit, I thought there was a way to enter in game card numbers rather than a credit card, so I'm confused.

Sunday:
More sleeping in. It was so cold last night. I needed another blanket. It's a nice change, though. All week it was far too hot. Tomorrow I go back to Hamilton.

*sends hugs to all*

No! Not the Tennis Poi! ANYTHING but the Tennis Poi!!! [01 Jul 2005|05:54am]
[ mood | Not Yet Dead ]

Wow, my visit is coming to a close. It seems... fast. But today is the best day to come!

Because it's CANADA DAY!!!

*cheers* *throws red and white maple leaf confetti*

The tentative "plan" is to meet at Sooth's around 1pm and hang out until I need to go my grandparents' for dinner and stuffs, around 5pm, then we reconvene near my grandparents' house and walk over to the fireworks. If all else fails, meet where we always do, the RCAF building.

I'm bringing my laptop for "musical accompanyment" but it won't sound that good in an open area. They *are* internal speakers after all.

Things to do when I get back to Hamilton "aka home":
- Pre-order HP6 for myself and Jamie. Yeah I procrastinated like crazy.
- Go to the Source aka "The Store Formerly Known As Radioshack" and figure out why the light on my clock thingie doesn't work
- Find someplace to install my new RAM on Sandrock-Kai. Maybe IF will stop lagging now.. It'd be nice.
- Download IRCle onto Lumina and punch in the registration code
- Attempt to RP/Chat while playing WoW. O.O
- (first priority) Hug Logic. Kisses optional.
- Write up Kelriia's "not-so character" sheet and the new attempt at a character. Do not get beaten to death by tennis poi. You heard me.
- Submit my finished quizzes.

I think that's all.

Audience: D, it's 6 AM. Why are you awake?
Me: I blame the sun. And birdies. Damn chirpy birdies.
