Man, the past several days or so have been awesome.
First of all HEY waywardoctagon
I GOT YOUR PACKAGE AND ADFLGHALDFGH LITTLE WEIGHTED COMPANION CUBE AND CAKE OMG :O MAN YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN MY FACE WHEN I OPENED IT I GOT THIS GIANT GRIN
BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH THAT'S SO AWESOME I have put them on my bookcase with Cloud and Peasley 8D It was actually kind of funny when I opened the package, since I had actually just been looking at Weighted Companion Cube plush toys and stuff and wishing that I had a WCC thing of my own, and then suddenly BAM HANDMADE FIGURINE SUCKA and man it was excellent. i am barely coherent right now
BUT THANK YOU AGAIN I'll have to remember to take pictures when I get some new batteries. I could draw you something in return if you waaant :O
I saw Cloverfield recently, which was great and something that I highly recommend. It really gave you a sense that that was actual footage of a disaster, which was neat and made things a lot more intense. The handheld camera thing didn't bother me, personally, though if you guys get motion sick easily, then, uh... watch out? I dunno :B But you should at least attempt, if you can.
We also rented 300, which was... okay, I guess. I liked it from an artistic point of view. The movie itself was about what I expected, really.
SO HEY WANNA KNOW WHAT WE DID TODAY??? WE SAW JOHN EDWARDS SPEAK AT A POLITICAL RALLY! WOOOOOOOOOO I don't think anyone in my family is actually voting for him, but we still just wanted to see him :B nobody ever comes here okay it was exciting
It was just a little local one, with maybe... I'd say about 200 other people there. It was a fairly small building that barely had any ventilation, so it was real hot, which kind of sucked. Especially since we had to wait for about an hour or so before he got there. BUT we managed to muscle our way to the front of the crowd (I would up being next to some really determined old lady with a camera who randomly stole my sign after the speech was over, and some fangirl who... I guess had a crush on Edwards or something, since she kept gushing over him. OH MY GOD I JUST SAW HIM THROUGH THE CURTAIN AAAAAAAAAA HE LOOKS SO MUCH CUTER IN REAL LIFE), and I actually got to shake his hand when he came in! 8D That makes him the first famous person I've ever met.
As for the speech itself and everything, he... actually didn't seem all that into it. He seemed like he was kind of forcing it and trying to sound spirited and everything, yet at the same time he seemed kind of... defeated? And he seemed like he was kinda rushing through his speech and didn't stick around very long afterwards or anything. Mom and Sarah noticed this, too. I felt bad for him.
Sarah got some nice pictures, though :B We tried to get him to autograph our sign, and Sarah actually followed him from the "stage" (there wasn't any actual stage, he just sort of... stood in the middle of a room) to the curtain and called him just as he was about to leave, but no dice. We were gonna wait by the back door, but the whole thing managed to end right as a cold front was coming in, and we didn't really wanna stand around in that. We all got to shake his hand, though, and that was all we really wanted.
Bill Clinton is gonna make a speech nearish to where we live, too (a few hours away? longer?), so we're gonna try and go to that as well. I WILL TRY TO SHAKE HIS HAND though this will be like twenty times bigger than Edwards', so it'll probably be a lot more difficult. BUT I WILL TRY
In other news, I beat Phantom Hourglass! I thought about bringing my DS to political rally so I could finish it (I was on the final boss), but then decided that I didn't wanna carry it around. I SHOULD'VE DONE IT THOUGH, I TOTALLY COULD'VE BEATEN THAT FINAL BOSS WHILE WE WAITED anyway( Spoilers for the whole game, in no particular order. )
BUT THE BEST PART WAS DEFINITELY GOING INTO THE FINAL BOSS FIGHT WITH THREE HEARTS AND WINNING WITH ONLY HALF A HEART
YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW PANICKY I WAS DURING THAT BATTLE
So anyway, yeah, that was fun.
Now I need to actually finish Windwaker
I'm thinkin' my next gaming conquest will be Partners in Time, since I'm pretty close to the end, I think. It's really hard to motivate myself to finish that game for some reason, though. It's just... kind of boring and doesn't really feel like Superstar Saga did at all -- I'd hardly even call it a sequel. Not to mention that it has Baby Bowser in it, and every time I see Baby Bowser I am overcome with the urge to punch him in the face.
But I dunno! Maybe I'll think differently when I finish it. AND SPEAKING OF SUPERSTAR SAGA PEASLEY STICKER IN BRAWL OH MY GOD
And this is probably only awesome to me, but I'm finally getting some new glasses after having these crappy ones for about two years and nothing before that. I'm all excited, I even marked the day they come in on my calendar :D shut upBest cosplay skit ever y/y.In case you were wondering where that one meme came from.
This cracked me up.I think I actually might like this guy's voices better than the originals :B...I feel so bad for laughing at this1:22 gets me every time.Got this offa Zarla.
AHAWHAWHAWHAWThat there is some neat dancin'.
Though I kind of feel sorry for the guy at the end. THAT LOOKS UNCOMFORTABLE :OI can't get over how lovely this is.
And apparently the dancers are deaf and don't have any offstage cues or anything, which only makes it all the more amazing.
I'VE HAD THREE HOURS OF SLEEP WOOOO
