... I signed up for another bingo table, because clearly something is wrong with me.

samatethecookie: (sometimes it's better to be alone)
So, I caved and actually asked for a bingo table at [ profile] hc_bingo. Because clearly I've lost my sanity. I'm not even huge on the genre as a whole, but I wanted to see which prompts I'd receive and if it'd work for me at all, because sometimes I don't mind H/C. (I asked for them to leave off sexual trauma and abuse, so if you're going to get a table and you're not comfortable with those prompts, please make sure to tell them that. Because a lot of them involve child abuse, for some reason.)

The Bingo Table, plus thoughts... )

I came back from a barbecue at my older sister's place. I ducked out early because my head was bothering me and I felt like I was getting sick again. One of the lowest highlights of my night involved Jason's thirty-year-old sister apologizing for making a crude gesture in front of me about dicks and assuming I was a really young teenager. Yes, believe it or not, I am twenty-two years old, damn it. D:

I attempted to watch this lame anime last night, and...I forgot the name of it. I discovered it when I was looking at this list of Anime Love Scenes on YouTube and I thought I'd give it a try. But I ended up hatewatching episodes three and four before I finally gathered my senses and dropped it like a bad habit. It was basically a girl reluctantly loving a boy who treats her like shit but the boy is set up as this secretly wonderful and soft-hearted guy on the inside SO IT'S OKAY, EVENTUALLY HE STOPS BEING A JERK and ugh. I hated it and it was only four episodes, so I'll get back with you with the name of it if anyone's curious.

Oh and in less than happier news, I lost my debit card at Target. They destroyed it by the time I reported it missing. But gee, it would've been nice if they notified me any of this OVER THE PHONE when I called and asked if I left it there. 8| So. I guess I'm going to have to report it missing and asked for another one.

And because I forgot to mention it, Scruffy's improving very quickly. He's walking normally, his appetite is slowly coming back, and he's interacting with us again instead of sitting around and staring off into space. I think what helped was that my parents stopped giving him his painkillers, which were making him too loopy to do anything. His head is still tilting, but he's much better off than he was when we first brought him home.

Um. I actually signed up for [ profile] schmoop_bingo. I'm not sure if I'll complete this table, but it could serve as motivation to actually get some writing done.

My table, plus some thoughts... )

I'm debating on getting a table for that Hurt/Comfort challenge at [ profile] hc_bingo; thankfully you can request to leave off abuse and sexual trauma as prompts, because I'm um, really not comfortable working with any of those within the genre at all. That and I'm curious as to which prompts I'd get. (I probably won't sign up for them, though. Some of the prompts are just...a little too much.)

I won't even bother with [ profile] kink_bingo because I'm such a bashful person over smut. I can read it but writing it is a completely different field for me. That and most of the prompts are just too silly to even comprehend why anyone would find some of these things kinky.

Currently I'm watching The Shining. It's a little disturbing, but not really creepy, because the weird, psychotic music playing in every scene ruins the build-up. THANKS FOR RUINING A FAIRY TALE ABOUT PIGS FOR ME, THOUGH, YOU DAMN MOVIE.

(1) Wow, they really butchered the hell out of Dragon Ball Z with DBZ Kai. I never saw the Japanese version, so I hope it's just something the English dub did--I caught two episodes on the Nicktoons channel--but yeah, it really tore the original scenes apart. I get that they were shortening the episodes, which is a great feat, but I feel like it takes something away from the characters. There's no time to emotionally connect with any of them. (Like, in one episode, Piccolo gives Gohan his sword and new outfit and says he'll come back in six months, and then a few seconds later, he's all, "OKAY, GOHAN, NOW THAT YOU'VE SURVIVED, I WILL TRAIN YOU NOW," and I'm like, "...When the fuck did six months go by? How did Gohan go from wearing an outfit like his father's and training with you to wearing an outfit like yours one minute later? WHERE IS THE BUILD-UP? EXPLAIN, SERIES.") I thought they were going to leave those scenes alone and shorten the battles, but I was wrong, apparently. They edited everything.

(2) Tumblr's kind of been turning me off lately. I like having something convenient to post random things, but a lot of 'fuckyeah' blogs have succumbed to inevitable drama amongst their followers by refusing to keep their personal opinions out of their posts and making their formspring accounts available for their followers to annoy them/start shit with them. (Like, yesterday, one account had drama about stolen screenshots and copyrights. Now I'm seeing anti!Disney in another place. I just want you to give me images/videos and other things about this specific fandom, damn it, not this crap. D:

(3) Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is coming out in September this year! Hooraay. Can't wait to play it.

(4) Here, have a music meme.

Day 01 - Your favourite song
Day 02 - A song that makes you happy
Day 03 - A song that makes you sad
Day 04 - A song that reminds you of someone
Day 05 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Day 06 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 07 - A song that you can dance to
Day 08 - A song that makes you fall asleep
Day 09 - A song from your favourite band
Day 10 - A song that no one would expect you to love
Day 11 - A song that describes you
Day 12 - A song from your favourite album
Day 13 - A song that you listen to when you're angry
Day 14 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
Day 15 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
Day 16 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
Day 17 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Day 18 - A song that makes you laugh

I have a couple of favorite bands, but I'll post the one I've been loving a lot lately.

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 [ 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.

I was thinking about buying Sailor Moon DVDs until I realized (1) most of the DVDs out there are either too expensive or bootleg, and (2) Funimation put out a survey in 2009 asking their fans which project they should work on next, and a possible re-dub of Sailor Moon was included on the list.

Now, I don't think this is impossible. Already an international revival is underway. A new, remastered Sailor Moon series just premiered on Italy television this March! If Funimation is showing an interest, then it could be possible that the English license can be renewed, which really needs to happen because it's been, what, five years? If it is possible to renew at this point? Books! DVDs! Movies! Music! They're going to be available to the western fanbase. That'd be awesome.

So, I'm hoping and praying that this happens sooner or later. If they can put Dragon Ball Z Kai on Nicktoons and call it a new series, then I'll fucking buy it for Sailor Moon so long as I get my proper English dub and DVDs.


(Also, if the guy who sounds like Edward Elric in every single role he picks up has to be in this series? He should be Jadeite. Then he'd be the first one to die! OMG YES THIS HAS TO HAPPEN NOW.)

Edit: Totally not related to this whatsoever, but apparently you can buy a package on LJ that gives you 210 icons? so expensive but OMG DO WANT.

Remember that 30 Day Meme I was attempting but stopped? I think I'm going to try again. I've been in a really bad mood the past few days, and I'm feeling achy tonight. A distraction sounds good right about now. Also, I'm borrowing your LJ cuts, [ profile] deltashade, because I'm too lazy to think of something different.



In less interesting news, I played a lot of Final Fantasy X throughout the week. It's a cool game.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ((se) stand my ground)
I finished the Soul Eater anime. It was awesome, but that's not the point of this post.


Y'know, for...educational purposes.

idk, I want to do something fannish; I just haven't figured out exactly what, though. Maybe something a little fanmix-y that isn't really a fanmix, just for the hell of it.

Oh, and it doesn't have to be strictly Soul Eater. >_>
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ((iz) you do not amuse me)
This was such a bad week, so I'm glad it's over. I hope it gets better from here.

Bad news: I have work all through this week and school starts next Monday. Fuuuuck. I need money for school books. And schedule a dentist's appointment. My teeth are still hurting me and giving me headaches. :\

Good news: I can register for graduation this semester so I can get my associates. I'm going to be the first out of my siblings to finally get my associates. Hooray? I'm scared shitless, personally.

Um. I'm wide awake and bored and realized that I have people on my flist that are fairly new. So here, have a meme.

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks. No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a question about a fic of mine or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you! Um, if you want to, go ahead, but I won't force you.
