A bunch of stuff has been happening since my last post (for example: I turned twenty-three! :O ), but nothing of the sort that comes in easily journable chunks. Longer letter later!

I will mention, though, that today I saw a car with the license plate "NIMBUS."

Also, I've been spending a fair bit of time reading through the archives of the blog Sociological Images, to the point that last night I dreamt I was taking a picture of an advertisement in a magazine so that I could post about it and all its deeper meanings. LOVE IT! xD

51. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), 2000
I can count this as a movie if I want to count it as a movie, haha. I heard about this play when [ profile] the_wykydtron went to a local production (without me!! HOW DARE SHE), and so intrigued was I by her report that I looked to see if I could find a version of it on YouTube. Lo and behold, I found the entire thing! I finally finished watching it last night, and, while it was a little more ridiculous than I'd been expecting, overall I really enjoyed it! They actually manage to include pretty much all of Shakespeare's work, including my beloved but much-ignored "Troilus and Cressida," which is awesome! As a wannabe Shakespeare fan I was definitely laughing through the whole thing (except for the occasional serious moments, which were also very good), and I'll probably be looking into the Reduced Shakespeare Company's other productions in the future. xD

In other news, last night [ profile] trumpydoesmagic and I watched The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which was most excellent, and then I had a dream that Lady Gaga featured Morning Musume's Reina Tanaka in one of her songs. Uhm. Awesome?

Woke up to the news that Koharu is graduating from MoMusu and from Hello! Project. This sucks!! I guess December 6 will mark the end of my favourite MoMusu line-up. :( Although anyone who points out that I should be grateful it lasted as long as it did is right. The group has been unusually stable lately, but I kind of liked it that way. :(

I booked off work today in order to go to the museum with one of my best friends. :D This'll be my third time through the British Museum temporary exhibit but that's fine with me, I loved it. And the second time I went I bought an annual pass, something I actually should've had all along, because I definitely go to the museum enough for it to be worth it. So yay for going to the museum for free~!

And a note for my Shamoners: last night I had a dream featuring Crazy Fountain Boy. Y'ALL ARE JEALOUS~~~~ xD

Last night I dreamt that I was at Universal Studios in California and Stephen Colbert was doing a show there, and as Mom and I were trying to figure out how to buy our tickets from a broken vending machine, he came over to us and asked me to recite a spiel from one of the rides, and I looked into the camera and said, "Welcome to Jurassic Park, the show where everything's made up and the points don't matter."

... what.

Job fair tomorrow! My favourite way to spend a Saturday. :|

I had a dream last night that I got my hands on a DVD of PotC4, and I didn't get very far into it because it was one of those dreams where you keep getting interrupted, but Will was in it and Tia Dalma was in it and it was AWEsome!!!!!! and needless to say now I am awake and really disappointed. :(

Man some days I really wish I could erase my memory just so I could watch all the PotC movies again for the first time. xD

Last night I had a dream about Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (only of course it was nothing like it is in real life) and today at the mall I saw a man wearing a Jedi Training Academy shirt (I probably wouldn't have bought such a shirt had I seen it, a fact that today I ridiculously regretted), and anyway these two things together made me remember what I forgot to tell you guys! Which is that once I begin my new job, I will no longer be an employee, and I will no longer be an associate -- I will be a cast member. Oh, I do like to pretend I work at the happiest place on earth.

FOUR DAYS TILL POTC3 HOLY COW!!!! I feel like just yesterday it was two full weeks and then zoom! Four days! I have to be on my best behaviour when we go to see it, hahaha. I don't want to give the theatre reason to regret hiring me before I even start. XD

Today is my last day of classes and even though I only woke up half an hour ago, so far it rocks! :D Hello! Project, job hunting, and old friends :) )

Anyway I better go and actually get ready for school, especially as I had a dream last night where I was hours late to my first class, which today is only going to be like five minutes long, so being hours late would be even more offensive than usual! XD;

Let's start this post off with the dorkiest thing ever. For the past two months or so, I have had an analogue clock in my room, and this is a really new thing for me because I have never had one before and it is loud! It's a Disney Princess clock featuring Cinderella that my dad brought me back from Germany. XD; (Hahahaha, I am the easiest person to shop for ever. XD ) Anyway, today I watched a couple Escaflowne episodes in my room using my new hardcore region-free portable DVD player. And at the end of episode twenty-three, when Hitomi is back on Earth and the clock is ticking? It was ticking exactly the opposite of my Cinderella clock. Tick! from Escaflowne, then tick! from Cinderella. Is it ridiculous how hilarious I think this is? XD XD I was like, "I should watch it again!" but I did not have any faith in my ability to reproduce the effect. XD XD XD XD

And now for a dream post, because you love dream posts, I know you do. XD Last night I had a dream that my mother told me that my brother and his girlfriend were going to have a baby, and then like the next day the baby was born. XD And it was a girl! And my brother came to visit us and he was walking up the driveway carrying the baby and I ran up to him and asked if I could hold her and he said, "NO!" And he absolutely would not allow me to baby-sit her. Oooooooh man, if that happens in real life I will be CRUSHED. I am depending on my brother to produce adorable offspring so that I may be their doting aunt. XD

And I also had a dream that I was sitting in the movie theatre watching PotC3 for the first time, and I was so completely enjoying it (all I can remember of it now though is that Will was on a red ship? talking tensely with an enemy? haha or something?), except then I thought to myself, "What am I doing watching this for the first time in the afternoon? I TOTALLY MISSED MY CHANCE TO SEE THIS MOVIE AT MIDNIGHT" and I totally hated myself. And so of course I woke up and now cannot believe I still have to wait until May to see PotC3. ;_; ;_; ;_; ;_; ;_;

Writing that paragraph reminded me of the dream I had a couple nights ago where [ profile] the_wykydtron and my plane tickets to Anaheim were for a Friday morning, but I believed they were for Friday evening, and so I went to school as usual, and then I realized that we had missed our flight, and it was the worst thing ever. Really funny when I woke up, though. Except I shouldn't have told my mom I dreamt that, now she's all worried all over again. ^^;;;

One last thing! I am continuing in my quest to label all my unlabelled tapes, and I came onto the computer to inform [ profile] the_wykydtron of the Jungle Cruise joke that they snuck into the Aladdin episode "Rain of Terror" (says Genie, "And now for the most dangerous part of our journey: the drive home" lawl), and I decided to check the MoMusu forums while I was here, and zomg their upcoming single has finally been on the radio and it is excellent. XD Mostly I am just so thrilled that it's not another "Aruiteru," because I kind of think that's my least favourite MoMusu single ever. But I love it! It is nice and funky in an old school MoMusu sort of way, and of course it has a ridiculous title, so I'm happy. XD (Although personally I think Reina should have more lines, hahahaha well fine. XD ) I really want to pre-order this but all my money is going towards Vancouver next weekend and Disneyland in February ... so I shall have to pre-order it with something that doesn't come out until, like, April, so it'll be charged when I have a job again. XD;;; Hahaha, I wonder if this is a good plan or a terrible plan. XD;;; Man, though, this is awesome, and what's even better is that I like it twenty times more every time I listen to it. <3333333 XD XD XD And a new album soon, too! Man, I can't believe it's been almost a year since Rainbow 7 was released ... I still feel like I only just got it! XD;; That might be the CD I take with me to Anaheim. Really I'm only taking my CD player to help me get through the flights with minimum airsickness. So far I've only used Rainbow 7 and Maki Goto's best album for this purpose, but for whatever reason I found Rainbow 7 worked so much better. I guess just because I knew it better so it was easier to focus on it? Or something? I don't know how it worked, I just know that it did. :P

As has been mentioned by both [ profile] the_wykydtron and [ profile] athena_crikey, we and betaraider and betaraider's brother stayed up all night Friday night watching all of Escaflowne. :D Or [ profile] the_wykydtron and I stayed up all night, at least. XD I'm not in much of an analytical mood right now so I won't subject you to my fake brand of analysis, but just know that staying up all night to watch Escaflowne (and take a quick walk through the cemetery! <3 ) is buckets full of awesomeness. I thought the whole night was one big stretch of awesomeness so I do hope my friends feel the same way, even the ones who fell asleep and started kicking me. Ahaha, man, every time we do an all-nighter like this it just increases my desire to do it again. I suspect, though, that I might be alone in that. XD (Now that I've done Esca in one night three times, I think it's time to move up to the big leagues. FMA in one night? Who's with me? Ahahaha, I think that would end up being a night and a day, ahahaha, oh gosh.)

Taking pity on those who don't actually care about my ingenie-us sleeping patterns. )

PS: This song rocks my socks.

Last night I had a dream featuring the characters from Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)" video.


(And is this better or worse than that time I dreamt Keira Knightley and Jack Davenport were my friends except when they came to visit me they had to come in disguise and the disguises they chose were of Alice and the Mad Hatter, because I had been watching Disneyland videos all night?)

Saturday is our annual neighbourhood garage sale (in which we participate even though we are at the top of the hill and so everyone else ignores us), and tomorrow is my last day off before then, so I've sort of been looking forward to it as a big EVERYTHING MUST GO!! sort of crazy purging day. But now I am feeling nervous and hoping I don't wuss out. UGH. When I was last in Calgary for my grandparents' birthday celebration my aunt was talking about how my grandmother's family gave up all they had in order to come to Canada, and wouldn't it be just awful to lose all of your stuff, and I am a horrible person but all I could think was AT LEAST THEN I WOULDN'T GUILT MYSELF ANYMORE, because man.

I have been thinking about getting bangs but I keep putting it off as is my wont. And so anyway last night I had a dream that my dad cut my bangs, and he did a really horrendous job but I loved them anyway. I have no idea if this is supposed to be some premonition or what ...

Anyway I have been looking through [ profile] ourbedrooms and it is driving me INSANE because seriously, none of these people own any actual belongings. Hahahaha. I dunno. My brother has a full bookcase and he has two whole shelves free! (I am counting the shelf on which he keeps his army men.) This boggles my mind. I feel like if I have a bookshelf I have a duty to keep it filled. Which is ridiculous? I barely even read anymore. Right now the part of my bookcases that I pay the most attention to is the part where my CDs are stored ... :p

Basically it is two in the morning and I wish I were a better person, is what I am trying to say.

(And today I had part of my shift with my two favourite co-workers whom I hadn't seen for two weeks; one of them announced he was quitting and the other spent the remainder of the time trying to hide that she was upset about it. Which is, I dunno. But then they told me their stories about sketchy Danish roller coasters and that was awesome, and my mom came and bought a cinnamon stick and I gave her my discount and my co-worker questioned it and I was like "It's my mom!" and she was like "Oh right, duh." It was a all a little strange. But I was grateful that my feet didn't hurt even after eight hours of standing and I was grateful that my friend came and spent my break with me, yay. :) )

And FINALLY I am done the semester.

That took FOREVER.

Especially considering that in my mind I was done with the semester a good two months ago. ;D

(PS: The other night -- er, afternoon, considering how my sleeping habits have been as of late -- I had a dream that I was at karaoke. I was singing a very bad rendition of misono's "VS," but I'm pretty sure that wasn't the point, I'm pretty sure the point was I NEED TO GO TO KARAOKE.)
arisha: (Default)
(that's my favourite joke ever ever ever ever ever omg ever)
(except maybe the "let's get on the ship, men!" joke, which will be forever fabulous)
(hahahahaha, I am laughing just thinking about it! oh man, hahaha, "let's get on the ship, men!" I can't even take it!)
(someday I will write a joke book and I will buy six trillion copies)

My schedule as it looks right now, although who knows what it will look like when I actually register tomorrow. )

In other news, Entertainment Weekly said Fijación Oral is Shakira's best work to date, which makes me wonder if they've actually heard any of her other Spanish albums, because don't get me wrong, I love "La Tortura" and that song about inglés is pretty cool too, but the rest of it is going to take me quite a while to get used to I think. Especially the part where she sings in French for the sole purpose of messing with my head, geeze Shakira.

The neighbour that hates me I think is outside with her loud friend. Fantasmic.

Last night I had a dream that one of my aunts had moved to Victoria and had a new kid and I was baby-sitting this kid who was so so adorable. I seriously wish I had a so so adorable kid I could baby-sit. You have no idea. I sure hope this isn't a sign of maternal instinct, because if it is, Athena will hunt me down and kill me.

Tall ship pictures coming soonish. :)

Yesterday I got up at seven, felt sick, went back to bed, woke up at five, felt better, watched Prisoner of Azkaban in French, watched the end of Aladdin on CBC, watched Troy in French until scene 24 started skipping (!?!?), watched the end of Aladdin on ABC, watched Pirates of the Caribbean in French, went to bed at twelve-thirty, dreamt I was watching Amadeus in French. (After all the French-dubbed movies, I had sort of expected a bad dream in French, but talk about lame.) And now I am avoiding my French homework while listening to "Dragostea Din Tei" on repeat and pretending it's in English, because it's funny that way!

As you can plainly see, I am a college girl gone wild. XDXDXDXDXDXD!!!!

I love how all movies about Mozart have the same title but in different languages. You know, just to mix it up a bit. Okay, so I only actually know of two movies about Mozart, but it's still funny!!! XD;;;;;

Read Into Thin Air and it gave me a nightmare. Have been cleaning my room again. There is more dust in there than in any attic in any haunted house anywhere EVER. Last night I dreamt about cookies, bad Aladdin remakes, plants, and slow elevators. I still miss Winnipeg. Rrrgh.

My friend and I are giving flute lessons to two fellow band members, it's awesome. Hopefully soon I will also be able to tutor languages. I'm excited! :)

Today I practiced the saxophone, yay me~.

Something that really bothers me is that my store-bought Playskool dollhouse has always meant more to me than the wooden dollhouse my father built and my grandmother furnished. I think now that I have realized that, though, it'll change. I was dusting the wooden one today and began to see it in a much nicer light than I ever did when I was younger. I don't know.

Had a huge sneezing fit earlier today because of all the dust. At least I managed to get rid of some of it. -_-;

I've been feeling really uneasy lately, like something bad is going to happen. I don't like this feeling at all. Hopefully now that I've finished that book it will go away?

I have to finish typing out SFF ... in the notebook the novel is almost finished but on the computer there's still a lot to go. :X
