hikarikirameku: (Stealth Al...CLANK!)
Saturday, I hung out with people from the club. Just Andy and Perry for a while, then after that people kinda left and came in at random. Zip was there for a good bit, but had to leave cause her allergies were bad (I feel your pain). We watched some Tokusatsu stuff, helping Perry decide what kinds of things he should put in his Nashi-con panel. Then there was some stuff we watched just for fun. Later in the evening we played stuff on the Wii, and Pokemon. I battled Perry twice and won both times, but that was mostly thanks to my Dialga. If I hadn't had that I would have been pretty screwed. Oh, and my Lucario. It saved my ass in both battles, once against his Ambipom, and later against his Espeon because he didn't know it had the move Crunch :) It was a lot of fun, and I'm glad my Pokemon can still put up a decent fight, even though they weren't raised for competing. We went out for dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Five Points, it was the first time I'd gone to that side of town (I'm used to the Vista). They had some REALLY good food. Perry was singing W-B-X along the way, and I tried to sing along, but I forgot most of the lyrics >.>; Later on we just kinda walked around town chatting, there was a semi-amusing search for a restroom, and then it was time to go cause it was 2am. Even I was getting a bit sleepy by then, and I'm a night owl :P

Sunday... My Eyes! They buuuurn! Well, they're actually more itchy and watery, and my eyedrops aren't helping much. I was supposed to go hang out again with Perry and friends, but I couldn't put in my contacts with my allergies going haywire cause it burned. So I stayed home, cause I can't drive without my contacts. I ended up going over to the neighbor's, since her 6 year old granddaughter wanted to hang out with me again. We had dinner, I read her some stuff from my dragon book, and we colored a few of my older inked pictures because she wanted to. She was also excited cause she lost her second tooth, and was worried about staying up late cause she thought the toothfairy might miss her house if she wasn't asleep, it was cute. I told her the toothfairy would come regardless, so not to worry...plus her idea of "late" was 10pm, which was when she finally conked out so I came back home. Found out Perry had called while I was gone, so I called him back, we chatted for a bit, and then my phone started dying, so that was the end of that.

In cosplay stuff, I finally remembered to order those Tabi socks I'd been meaning to, to go with my Bleach cosplay sandals. The sandals also need to have a bit of hot glue discretely added to the bottoms as a non-slip measure...something I meant to do earlier and forgot. I also need to start going out looking for a plastic toy katana, since I'm lazy and don't want to make a sword. Finally, I need to throw my Mew costume in the wash and do a bit of repair sewing to the shirt. Then Nashi-con cosplay preparations shall be complete.

Go figure the weekend the air breaks, it's going to be in the mid-80's the entire time. Joy. It's generally tolerable in the main part of the house, but my room gets way too hot in the afternoon. So I generally don't get online til nighttime. Kinda sucks, cause there's times I wanna watch Shinkenger, but don't want to deal with the heat.

Last night's Nashi meeting was pretty awesome. We play-tested some stuff from OTAKU while in the Russel House cafeteria, which kinda added to the hilarity of my having to do a Kamen Rider henshin pose during it. There was also the usual ramblings of random topics, REALLY random. At one point a simple comment about the sprinklers and a commercial sparked an entire discussion on Slip 'n Slides XD Just one more reason why the group I hang out with is awesome. Between hanging out with everyone at the club, Russel House, and parking lot, I didn't get home til 1am...it was glorious. I love being able to come and go as I please...well, as long as Aaron isn't using the car we share >.>;

As for shows, I've got one more to add to the list. Although, I can't remember if it was Dekaranger or Gekiranger they suggested...I think they mentioned it was the one that ran beside Den-O, and if that's the case, it was Gekiranger. Fine by me, I thought the costumes from that looked kinda cool with the cat designs. I like cats. It'll have to wait til I'm done with Shinkenger though. I'm up to episode 27, which was hilarious.

Speaking of Shinkenger, I went and downloaded the music for it already. The opening I had to kinda warm up to. I'm still more fond of the ending, only because there's a movie version with the Shinkengers singing along too, and it's catcher that way. I also have a techno version of both from the Exit Trance Tokusatsu 3 album, they're not too bad.

On an awesome note, one of my online friends I've known for a long time sent me a birthday present. A Kingdom Hearts necklace that looks like the one Sora wears. He had told me he'd get me something, and I'd suggested it like 2 months ago, but I didn't expect him to actually get it for me. One of these days, I need to get a PS3 so we can game online again. That's how we met in the first place, on an online PS2 game, but the servers for it closed less than a year after it launched. There's an RPG I'd probably be interested in playing with him. In the meantime though, we chat on MSN and AIM.

Oh my gosh, today (Thursday) was a busy day. Got up at 6AM (ugh) to get ready for early morning driving lessons. Left around 7:20am, drove around, reviewed a bit, and was kinda nervous cause I knew after practice I was going to take my driving test. Took it, passed it only missing 2 points, and FINALLY GOT MY DAMN DRIVER'S LICENSE. Driving still scares the crap out of me though...but at least I know how to do it properly.

Of course, with Columbia being as crazy as it usually is, I let my older brother drive to the meeting (plus with him driving we got to take the good car). He didn't know the way, but I navigated. Took a while to find parking. We got in and watched Rookies. Then we got some food at Wendy's, went back, and chilled in the game room a bit. After a while we split up, he stayed in the game room, I went and watched The Wallflower in he other room. That show is...insane, but awesome. Afterwards it was off to the Russel House to chill while everyone else grabbed grub. Random Toku and Sentai babble ensued, and I was shown some rather epic pictures, fanart, and whatnot...mostly from Shinkenger. I had sooo much fun. Oh, I also got to show my Kivat plushie to everyone, so that was cool. I'm glad they thought he was cute. Justin had fun too, and he got to get out of the house and socialize, which he kinda needed...he hadn't really gone out the entire vacation ^^;

Speaking of Justin, I did manage to get him to watch a little bit of Kiva, which I find a rather big accomplishment. I told him I'd get a movie he'd really like in exchange for giving in and watching it with me for a little while. Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, he hasn't seen it yet, and all the new and added scenes really make it awesome. I might also see if he'll watch the Kiva movie, and possible one of the Den-O ones, but that's not as important.

I need to watch more Shinkenger, and catch up on Double episodes at some point.

...from laughing so damn hard XD Tonight was so much fun. Made it to the Nashi club meeting tonight. Was a little late, but managed to make it before Rookies started. It was such a good episode, even though they're all pretty good. One part had everyone laughing so hard, it was great. I felt kinda bad laughing at what was supposed to be a more serious part, but people were making comments and it was kind of funny.

They were watching something different in the second slot, but I still didn't want to watch it, and ended up milling about trying to decide which game room to head into. I ended up heading out with my buddies to a sandwich place they knew of. Katie was nice enough to buy for me <3, although all I got was a milkshake cause it was all I was really feeling up to eating. Insanity, hilarity, and crack ensued. It was SO much fun. At one point we were discussing Kiva cosplay. Zip was doing her Otoya thing, and I was attempting to try and stay in character as Taiga, and failed miserably...Zip's just too damn funny, not to mention the things the others were doing ("Nii-san!")...I was laughing SO hard. I'm convinced it's impossible to keep a straight face with those guys for more than maybe 10 seconds. I really do hope we managed to get a full Kiva group, if I can't do it this year, I'll definitely aim for that being my goal for next year.

Afterwards it was back to the main building, we talked about sentai shows. I'm still not quite as sold on sentai as I am some of the other live action stuff I've watched, but I'll probably give it a go. We watched the first episode of Go-onger together. It was...err..."special". Pure crack. I mean, it's one thing to hear about it, but then you see it, and it's just like...wow. I'm thinking I'll take their advice and watch Shinkenger instead, since it's supposed to be less crack-tastic. Of course, even that will have to wait, I have a few other things I still need to do first. I'm still having fun finishing up Kiva and Den-O related things.

Also, I'm gonna see if I can order that Kivat plushie tomorrow, but I'm torn on what kind of shipping to pick. On one hand, I can go with the cheaper one (about $8), and have it possibly take a while (estimated 7-45 days), and there's no tracking, or I can get the more expensive one (about $17), which is faster (estimated 5-14 days) and has tracking. The speed might not matter if it gets stuck in customs or something, but at least I'll know where it is. The final price with cheaper shipping will be about $21, with the more expensive it's closer to $30 and I'd be paying more in shipping than for the plushie, which is only around $13. Although, considering the normal price for the plushie is around $40 just on it's own, I'm still saving money either way, but you can see why I'm torn ^^;

Manga day. Bleach is back this week...though it's getting to the point where I don't even care right now. It's just Captain God-mode showing off how he can the crap out of everyone. I am so sick of Aizen, seriously, this whole arc has been pretty full of suck. Not to mention Ichigo's been standing in the background for like, 4 chapters now, doing nothing. I might take a break from Bleach and just catch up in like a month or so, see if things get any better. Naruto was at least decent if only for reuniting all of the old Team 7 members, and having Naruto in the chapters makes putting up with Sasuke all the time now more tolerable.

I also made it through Den-O, so the final episode and series commentary is under here.
... )

I'm tired now x.x I'm still gonna try and make it to my Nashi meeting though.

Changed the default icon again, the Bleach one's been there a while. I had wanted to add a Hetalia icon when I started watching it, but it took me ages to pick a character. Finally settled on Canada, seems to suit me well enough. Plus he's all sorts of adorable with his little polar bear <3

Today has been Burimyu, manga, games, more anime...Thursdays are good days for me, and tonight was an especially good Thursday. Started it off with re-downloading some BuriMyu. Got two of them done so far. Read Bleach and Naruto while I was doing that as well. This week's Bleach chapter was better than last week's, which was just downright pointless. Naruto...not much to say about it...it's all Sasuke again, they ought to just change the damn manga's name at this rate. Oh, D. Gray-man was out too, which is rarer since it's gone monthly. They're doing Kanda's backstory, it's interesting. I kinda like the longer chapters the monthly format allows, but the wait in-between can really suck sometimes ^^; I'm keeping my eyes peeled for new FMA. Towards the afternoon I watched the 8th Pokemon movie (it's still my favorite), then played DS a little before it was time to get ready for Nashi club.

Nashi club meeting was fun. Got there a little late, but still caught most of Rookies. That show is so damn awesome. Kawato is a doofus, but that's why it's so much fun to watch. I'm still spending my time during Needless in the game room. I kinda jokingly chewed out...(ah, forgetting names again x.x)...Perry?...in the game room when DMC4 came up. I have a kinda odd sense of humor, I hope he realized I wasn't really serious. I keep forgetting people in the club still don't know me all that well to pick certain things up from me. I'm still too used to talking with my friends from up north, they know me and my little quirks and ways of speaking. Well, guess it's good I'm starting to at least open up a little more, least I'm not afraid to talk with everyone like I was last semester when I first joined. I just hope I don't give someone the wrong idea and accidently piss them off...I can do that sometimes ^^; On the flip side, it's hard to tell cause I don't know everyone very well either. I didn't get to say bye to most people in the game room cause they left during Genshiken. I think they were gonna go get sushi. Hope they had fun.

Anyways, sleep time now.
