...every time I see a toyota highlander I am compelled to shout, "there can only be one!"

I really enjoy indulging that compulsion.

...otherwise known as, There's an app for that!

That's right, am typing this from my phone. I used to have a boulder--that is, an indestructophone, but dad gave me his droid because it sucks the battery too fast for him and he thinks I want a smartphone. I do, but not desperately. Then again, a) I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, b) it is quite nice to work with a real, if small, qwerty keyboard, and 3)it was really, really nice of him and we're getting along super well and I don't want to jeopardize that by not accepting what is sort of a peace offering (as gifts between us always are), and I've kind of fallen in love with the fact that I can get daily Calvin & Hobbes comics.

At any rate, it's pretty nice. We'll just have to see if it's loud enough to wake me up tomorrow morning.

ARGH I am having the hardest time with buying contacts for Bonten.

Finding contacts isn't the issue. Deciding what color Bonten's eyes are aren't even the issue.

No, but Takayama-sensei sometimes colors his eyes green, and sometimes blue, and on one interesting occasion in the artbook (as everything else seems to be real color), indigo-ish.

Screenshots I dug up from he anime had his eyes as blue. And more of Takayama-sensei's pictures are definitely blue. On the other hand, I've always had this feeling of Bonten having green eyes, and so it feels weird to buy blue ones. I found a couple nice teal-colored contacts, a perfect mixture, but the problem is, they're non-prescription, and the last time I checked, canon Bonten wasn't blind as a bat. So, since I've been arguing with myself about this for the last hour and a half ("just suck it up, you dummy, and buy the blue ones!" "no!"), those of you who read Amatsuki: should I get blue contacts or green ones?

Look! I'll even be professional and make a poll:

[Poll #1363380]

So vote! And ease my weary mind. :)

I WAS I AN EARTHQUAKE, GAIZ.

SERIOUSLY.

IT WAS THE MOST EXCITING 10 SECONDS OF MY LIFE.

Apparently it was a mag. 6.2, and now all of San Jose (including Alajuela and Heredia), is on red alert. And no one is allowed to go upstairs. And the study abroad office (which has better internet than the university) is closed. D:

BUT IT WAS AWESOME. SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME.

I was lying on my bed watching FMA eps that I'd downloaded a million years ago (read: they were like early first season XD) and suddenly the window started shaking and I thought it was a car or something but then everything began shaking and I was like "HOMG IT'S AN EARTHQUAKE AND I'M NOT GONNA SLEEP THROUGH IT OR MISS IT THIS TIME (I missed a minor one yesterday, sadface D:) !!!!!!111!!!!!!!1"

I was so excited. XD I was like Dane Cook when he realized he was gonna see a guy get hit by a car. That's how excited I was. XDDDDD

And it was great. I'm sure once you have experience it's not nearly as awesome, but I thought it was sooooooooooo cool. :D

I WAS IN AN EARTHQUAKE!!!!!!! *SQUEE*

...

Ahem.

Onto other things. Last night I saw Marley and Me, and it was fantastic. I've never seen Owen Wilson in a role that wasn't ridiculous humor/slapstick, but he was so good. And Jennifer Aniston was great and it was just awesome. :) Definitely go see it.

I love my new roommate way more than I liked my old one. I think we may actually keep in touch after we go home. She's way cool.

Class is good...yeah. That's about all I need to say about class. But no. It really is. It was exciting because Marley and Me was dubbed in spanish, but I understood almost all of it. There were just a few things that I didn't know the specifics of, but I'm gonna have Maman mail the book and I'm sure I'll watch it again in English when I get home.

But seriously, if you have a dog, if you love dogs (or pets in general), you have got to see this movie. It's great. :)

Um...yeah. For those of you who follow my fics, I'm probably gonna have a new part of barcode up today and a holic oneshot up this weekend. :) So that will be great.

HEY. GUYS. I WAS IN AN EARTHQUAKE!!!!

been quite a while since I posted, huh? XD

I go home in 3 days!!!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED.

SERIOUSLY. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!

Okay, so now that I've gotten that point across, I am coming back for jan. and feb, but still, 2 weeks at home will be really nice. Not to mention like. Christmas. And real winter. And I'm just so excited!!!!!

I don't have internet at home right now. D: So I'm up at school every afternoon after working out (see that? I'm working out! :D) doing my internet crap.

anime ranting that has nothing to do with Costa Rica but a whole lot to do with Code Geass )

Um. SO I'M GOING HOME!!!

I'm so sorry. I can't think of much else right now. Spanish is going well, thanks. Subjunctive is a bitch. It still makes more sense than imperfect vs. preterit, though. XD
