samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (there's been trials and tribulations)
I feel like shit. I've had these strange body aches and dull pain since Tuesday. First it just started with the ball of my right foot, and now the muscles in the back of my left thigh are sore and I'm starting to feel it in my hands. I don't know what I did. Maybe standing for five hours with cheap pairs of shoes are doing it to me, or I pinched a nerve? I felt fine on Monday, but as soon as early Tuesday morning rolled around, it hit me. :\

In other news, because I know a few people are going to want to hear about this or in case anybody's curious: The Last Airbender's getting critically panned by both professional critics and fans alike. So far it's got an astounding rating of 9% on Rotten Tomatoes. (That may or may not change since it's only been released this week.)

Personally I can't say I'm surprised. Even when you leave the casting decisions out of the reasons why you shouldn't see this, it just sounds like a disappointing film in every other aspect. I really hope nobody pays to see this, only because it doesn't seem to come anywhere close to the energy and spirit of the show.

(By the way, the rumors about the female characters' roles getting diminished or completely forgotten? Sorry to say, but given what's been said in reviews so far, it's true. Not only was Katara a weaker fighter, but she didn't even get to inspire the Earth Kingdom prisoners to fight back against the Fire Nation soldiers, or fight against Pakku, or even get the upper-hand in her one-on-one fight with Zuko. And the Kyoshi Warriors--plus Suki--were cut from the film completely.)

EDIT: Also, I've tried nutella for the first time ever. It's ridiculously delicious. (Sadly I'm the only one in the house who likes it. Too bad, there's going to be a jar in the house from now on.) I gobbled up two pieces of toast covered in nutella and I plan to do it again tomorrow when I wake up. I'm just sad I couldn't celebrate its goodness with bananas because we're all out. :(

This is how I've been wasting my social life lately: I fixed up my userpics a little bit. (Okay, a lot.) I still have to upload a few more, but I'm happy with the amount I have.

My mouth's still bothering me, but it's a little better than the pain I experienced yesterday. I can actually eat without wanting to burst into tears. I can drink/eat hot stuff now! (Such as a warm cup of coffee, because my dad just picked up International Delight's Hershey coffee creamer, chocolate caramel. My life is complete, omg.)

AND BECAUSE I HADN'T BEEN DOING THEM LATELY: I haven't forgotten about fanmix requests from a long time ago! I, uh, did something drastic and deleted my entire music library. Which wasn't a particularly wise choice. So, there's the story and I'm sorry for being so lame. D:

Now that I've gotten the random notes out of the way, have a meme because I'm bored. I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] beyondheroism__.

Name a fandom. I will provide one thing that I actively seek in fanfiction, and one thing that I can't stand to see.

Hahah. Um, spoilers for a book, 'The Time Traveler's Wife' )

Real life is okay. Mouth still hurts. Scruffy's home from the vet and he's recovering. He didn't have any cancer. Actually, his testicles were inside of him rather than out, which we've always known about but we never thought it was a danger to him because he was fine for eight years. Well, those have been removed completely.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (anyone can see my every flaw)
Uhhhh, I accidentally added someone on my flist while I was looking through [livejournal.com profile] fanmix entries. So if any unexpected stranger spotted that my journal friended yours, that's the story. Sorry. *facepalm* If it's not a problem, let me know, but I don't want anyone to get weirded out.

I'm in such pain right now. :\ I have a sore in my mouth--it must've been from one of my sister's friends who passed it around--and my wisdom tooth in the back is trying to break through. So one side of my mouth feels like hell at the moment.

Oh, and one of our dogs Scruffy is at the vet in surgery. He has a tumor on his belly.

So...yeah, the last few weeks are just...shitty. Really, really shitty.

Something about an update on the Avatar movie casting lingers under this cut. If you could care less or you're sick of hearing about it, don't read this. )

Real life issues are calmer, but then they're not. There's barely any pain in my left side now. My appetite was completely gone today. I forced myself to eat, though, so I'm good to go.

The only reason why I'm up this late, at this point? Video gaming. All of my characters are at levels 99. Time to face Sephiroth! That final battle will happen ... tomorrow, lulz. Totally not ready for this shit. D:

Edit: So I came to a few conclusions about FF7, when I actually remember my shipping preferences.

• So I discovered that I ship Barret/Tifa. Then I remember Cloud and feel guilty about it. Then I settle for an OT3 - Barret/Tifa/Cloud - so everyone can be happy. I know it's weird, but I can't imagine Tifa without Cloud and vice versa, or Barret without Tifa OR Cloud. It's my first OT3 ever.

• When I was younger, I shipped Reno/Yuffie. It's pretty much a fanon/crack pairing, if I'm right on this. I haven't seen anyone else show an interest in this. I don't know where the pairing came from, or why I thought about it, but I did. I think I had my ships figured out when I was ... ten or eleven years old, except Yuffie was left out and I felt bad, so I slapped her into a pairing with Reno. Looking at the pairing now ... it's totally hot and I hope I was the first one to think of it. My ten-year-old self knew what she was doing. XD;

I also shipped Sephiroth/Aeris I MEAN. You see nothing.

• No slash pairings. (Except the occasional Cid/Vincent, because it's fucking weird and I love it.) Not even the femmslash. I ship the ladies for the lulz, but never seriously, not even for a minute. I've been stuck in my ways about the characters, and none of them really strike me as gay or bi.

• I used to ship Vincent/Lucrecia, but ... obviously that changed a lot. Lucrecia as a character annoys me even more now. I feel bad for her, and then I think she knew exactly what she was doing and it's too late to regret those decisions. That, and I think Vincent needs to realize that Lucrecia wasn't perfect and that he should stop punishing himself for a situation he had no control over in the first place.

I got my haircut. It wasn't what I expected - and it's nowhere near what I originally wanted - but at least my hair isn't stringy anymore. It looks so ... healthy!

While I was at the salon, I missed a step, fell, and twisted my ankle. Um. Yeah. That wasn't fun. It's still sore.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ FAIL)
Oh my God, I am sore. My neck and shoulders really hurt, and I was up all night with my scalp hurting me. I think I'm getting sick, because I haven't felt this sore since 2006, when I graduated from high school ... lost my voice completely, got body aches, and couldn't get warm like, at all.

:/ I hope this isn't a flu bug, because this is my last week of school and I've got a paper to write tonight and tomorrow. Why couldn't I get sick last week?! I skipped my classes twice, for God's sake.

Oh, well. At least I'm off from work this week.

A more positive note: I'm thinking about posting my semi-private Mytho/Rue mix that I've had sitting in my iTunes since I've first seen the show. Would anyone be interested in a zip? (I'm wondering if I should post it publicly, because the Princess Tutu fandom hardly explores Mytho/Rue, and that makes me sad.)
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ DO NOT WANT)
I, uh, think I have problems with wisdom teeth now. It feels like the entire back of my mouth? that my cheek was bitten, but it's in a place where that's impossible and it's right near my back molar. ;afa;kfa;kfafva, auuuuuuugh. I need health insurance NOW. :/

Sev, I saw Office Space today, and lulz.
