Come one, come all! anyone want a dw that doesn't have one yet? This is totally your chance! Just send her a PM or comment here or something and you shall receive! So, yeah. Do it. :D
If you don't know this song:
BECAUSE YES. PLEASE.

Secondly, animeiowa is in a week, so I may be gone for a while, cause I'm way behind on the whole cosplay thing. I will try to check the flist, but I might not get around to it. >.>
I love you all and will talk to you soon!
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.
The rest of you (other than the wonderful and lovely eoedad, who was my beta) will have to wait a bit to read the fic, but it'll be soon enough, I suppose. :D It'll probably go with my huge fic dump.
“Your servants are married to each other, milady?” Morgana asks curiously.
“They are not,” Yuuko says, “Just connected by the red thread of destiny.”
Merlin goes white. Arthur has discovered that Merlin hates destiny. “Destiny,” he says.
Yuuko finishes her wine and the servant hops up to pour another glass without her even asking. She swirls the wine in the glass, looking down at it for a moment, and then she smiles, slow and dangerous in a way that makes Arthur a little afraid for his sanity. “Destiny,” she affirms, voice low and full of certainty. “It is a fabulous thing, isn’t it? But there is not just destiny; there is fate, too—how some things are certainly to be, and how some things are not, and you cannot change that.” Her smile grows. “In my country, we call it hitsuzen.”
Merlin is looking at Arthur with a very certain Look on his face. When he catches Arthur’s eye, he mouths, fuck fuck fuck fuck.
Arthur is suddenly inclined to agree.
Guys, it is Merlin/holic crossover because sapphirestar_ just happened to put a Merlin icon up when she replied to a comment of mine and we had this big discussion and she's finally forced me into actually thinking about what would happen when Yuuko and the Great Dragon meet and WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING.
Someone stop me. PLEASE.
...or don't. I can't decide.
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
That all went brilliantly. The concert was fantasic; the national orchestra is as exceptional as the Ticos claim it is. They have every right to be proud of it. Also, I got to see a piece writted for the OSN in its debut last night, which was really cool. I was part of the first audience ever hearing that piece, and I really liked it. It had a lot of aspects of modern classical music, but I love modern classical music just as much as the good old stuff, and it was really good.
So, then, on Saturday, I was going to go to Volcan Irazu, and then relax/watch more Supernatural. And on Sunday I was going to go to Volcan Poas and get back in time to shower, eat dinner, and then actually watch Supernatural on TV. For once. XD
But whatever. Today.
So I get down to downtown San Jose at 7:45 to catch the 8 o'clock bus (the bus comes back from Irazu at 12:30). That all goes brilliantly, and I meet this girl who just graduated from UKansas in Manhattan (Kansas). She's with her boyfriend, and they're in CR for two weeks because her boyfriends from Mexico and they've been doing the long distance thing. That was cool.
Anyway, so it's an hour and 45 minutes or so to Irazu, and by the time we get to the gates it's rainy and windy and (when we get outside) probably around 40-some degrees, maybe less with wind chill.
Whatever. I'd totally hike anyway.
The problem is that there was a rockslide in the park. A ROCKSLIDE. So the park is closed today and tomorrow, and for good reason: not only is it dangerous, but none of the frickin' place has power or water or anything.
So we turned around and went back to San Jose.
On the way home I talked to a guy from Taiwan (though he lives in Florida now), who's here for a week. He was pretty cool. It was nice to talk to him. He'd been to a lot of countries in Latin America, and it was cool to hear about that. Apparently, the traffic in Brazil is even crazier than it is here in San Jose. I'm not even sure how that's possible. XD
So I went and got white grape juice and cookies from the automercado, and I guess I'm gonna start the supernatural marathon early. I think I'll try Irazu next weekend, and go with Susan, because she wants to see a bunch of the volcanoes.
Whatever. As soon as I go home (since I'm at UVeritas right now because I don't have internet), I'm changing into my pajama pants and dry socks and curling up in bed.
It's cold. And rainy. I love it, but I really wish I was in Irazu. D:
It's cold here! Which is weird! But I'm outside in a sweatshirt and my feet are FREEZING (because I'm wearing flip-flops) but it's cold!
I don't have internet at home...the router's screwed up, dunno why. I may not have internet at home for the next month (oh my!). Ummm...hmmm.
So. I gave up on the nanowrimo thing because when my computer crashed it ate it all. I'm contemplating having a NeNoWri10 (nebulia novel writing 10 days) and just totally ruining my life and destroying what little sanity I might possess by writing 50K words in 10 days.
Let's see if we can get back on our feet, hmm.
hahahahahahahano. It's not gonna happen. But I'm gonna give it a shot. I'll plot until nov. 20, and then it's off to the races. When I start babbling like a maniac, you might want to give my mom a call, k? XD
So it's cold here, and I don't have internet and I'm homesick. I'm happy about the cold though. I'm also sad because my spanish class for this month finishes on Friday and I really like my teacher. Que lastima. D:
Also, my new favorite thing about Costa Rica:
Age at which you can marry: 15
Age at which you can have consensual heterosexual sex: 18
Oh, wait! Here:
You're The Guns of August!
by Barbara Tuchman
Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what
causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they
really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing
with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in
the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can
Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.
Obviously, they didn't have Les Mis among their choices, because...really. :D
haha, no. But seriously, it's pretty accurate. If I were to be more politically active than I am. XP
Went to the doctor two days ago, for the cough that hasn't gone away since October.
It's another bronchial infection...and if the cough doesn't go away in two weeks, there are three choices:
b) silent reflux disease
c) cough asthma
It's snowing again and I love it. I love it a lot. I even like the sound of the snowplows as they go by. It's super-cold, too, which is equally wonderful; hot tea, my down comfortor, and the snow outside. It's glorious.
I felt like writing Samurai 7. So I'm writing it. Entirely and completely unedited, typed directly into the livejournal text box. Read at your own caution.
So. In ninth and tenth grade, in HYC, there was a guy in choir who was a good friend of mine, and within the first two months of choir, I had a serious crush on him (he was eventually nicknamed by me and MBF as My Lovely Black, which is what I'll call him here).
I just finished Kimi wa Petto, which was really, really good. Not as good as Gokusen, I don't think, but still, very good. I kept wanting to read the manga but never got the chance. I'll definitely read it now. XD
I find myself feeling very lonely right now. I guess I need my friends...I'll talk to them at school. About how I feel.
I'm also having odd dreams. Creepy, disturbing odd dreams. I told gothsocks about them last night:
Oh, a little bit of squick here.
Tonight I watched this movie called The Stratosphere Girl, and then the Sixth Sense, and then Reservoir Dogs.
Alaska was a lot of fun, I'll give you that. But we missed our connection in Denver by 10 minutes and didn't get home until 1:30, a full 14 hours after we were supposed to.
On the other hand, CompUSA gave up on my computer so now I have a brand-new MacBook instead of Anneliese. *happydance*
Maybe I've been paying attention or haunting different places online or something, but I've been seeing a lot of stuff about how awesome Trust & Betrayal (I don't remember how to spell the Japanese name, I don't care) is.
So, guess what I did today in swimming?
That's right, I broke my toe.
Sakura fucking rocks.

01. Post this on your journal.
The Golden Compass was good. Even though it didn't live up to some of my hopeful expectations, the characterization of all the characters was excellent. Nicole Kidman was sooooo creepy, and everyone else was JUST as wonderful, if not more--Lee Scorseby and Iorek were fantastic.
So go see it.
