SCREAMING

First Look: Angelina Jolie as the evil sorceress 'Maleficent' -- BREAKING

SCREAMING SCREAMING I AM SCREAMING OMG HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS MOVIE WAS BEING MADE OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD MY FAVORITE DISNEY VILLAIN CHARACTER EVER IS GETTING HER OWN MOVIE AND IT IS LIVE ACTION OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD



(Oh hey, six hundred posts!)
So I just need to share with the world at large that today my copy of The Last Unicorn on two-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo arrived AND ALL IS RIGHT AND GLORIOUS IN MY WORLD.

Seriously, this movie is like the living embodiment of my childhood; I have no idea how many times I rented it on VHS from Blockbuster as a little kid and I watched it and watched it and watched it. The three great things that introduced me to to fantasy: The Last Unicorn, the Dragon Chronicles by Susan Fletcher, and the Firebringer Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce. THEY ARE MY TRIFECTA OF HAPPY AND YAY AND CHILDHOOD. (I didn't pick up the original book of The Last Unicorn for many years, but after reading it all I could think was, "Hm, which was better at tearing out my heart and stomping on it, the book or the movie? Think, think... Tie. Definitely a tie. LET'S READ IT AGAIN YAY.") The amount of happies and feels I have right now is indescribable.

(Yes, I will totally be buying bottles of The Lilac Wood and The Last Unicorn and Lady Amalthea from BPAL's Last Unicorn collection once I have the money. I WILL NOT BE DENIED. Also: lilac. Best smell ever.)

I AM GOING TO GO REWATCH MY CHILDHOOD NOW YAY!

(Apologies to my beloved Sissy [livejournal.com profile] predikit who has already seen my spazzes on Facebook.)

First thing on the list!

Last night I was checking my university e-mail, and I saw that my Society and Law professor had sent out a general e-mail saying that the syllabus was up on Blackboard. Fantastic. I scurried right on over.

And then I read THIS:

"The other major piece of work in this class with is a substantial (15-22 pages), hands-on, applied, research paper that you will ideally do with one or two other people."

This paper is worth forty percent of my final grade.

...

I beg your fucking pardon.

I got lucky with my group project last semester. I worked with three other people who were also of the opinion that group papers and presentations were idiotic at best, but we've got an election to research and dissect, so let's buckle down and get to work. It's always a joy to work with people who are actually willing to do work. And, y'know, the entire project was only worth about twenty percent of our grade, so it wasn't a major problem.

But a huge fucking research paper that I have to DEPEND ON OTHER PEOPLE FOR and is worth FORTY FUCKING PERCENT OF MY FINAL FUCKING GRADE?!

No. Fuck no. No bueno. 很不好. Go die in a fire. I've already got a 500-level course I'll be busting my ass in for an A grade, and I'm not leaving myself to chance that I might work with some schmuck who knows what the fuck they're doing.

So, I immediately dropped PO300 and signed up for PO374: Rise of China.

I can totally work with that.

Second thing.

Today, I was browsing through Amazon, mostly looking for good-quality-but-cheap posters I can hang in my room. And then I clicked on the "we have recommendations for you" link to see if there was anything of interest on the rec list.

Normally I skip over the sample page they've got before I go straight to the list. They never have anything I care for on it. Except today.

Today, right there in the middle, in glorious color, was this:



DT's Inner Six-Year Old: OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD THEY'RE FINALLY PUBLISHING SAILOR V IN ENGLISH CLICKTHELINKCLICKTHELINKCLICKTHELINK!
DT: I'M CLICKING, I'M CLICKING!
DT's Inner Six-Year Old: SEPTEMBER 13 RELEASE DATE, PREORDERPREORDERPREORDER- oh my God.
DT: Oh my God.
DT's Inner Six-Year Old: Oh. My. God.
DT: There is a God and He loves us.
DT's Inner Six-Year Old: *bursts into tears* This is the greatest day of my life.
DT: *lower lip is trembling* Mine, too.

Because there, in the "Frequently Bought Together" section of the page, were these images:



They are finally reprinting Sailor Moon in America. Brand new cover illustrations. Proper right-to-left format. Faithful and accurate English translations.

There are no words to describe my joy right now. Well, unless you want to count the letter "E."

...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Well, damn.

Spoilers, HO! )

THREE DAYS ONE HOUR FORTY-ONE MINUTES UNTIL OPENING DAY OMG!

...But the meteorologists say it's going to rain.

Stop raining, damnit! I will not stand for rain on Opening Day at Fenway Park! CEASE AND DESIST, MOTHER NATURE.

Monday must be SUNNY and AWESOME and PERFECT, YOU HEAR ME?!
So.

You finally finished that paper for your writing seminar. (You're good at writing them, you just hate doing it.) You've had dinner. You've showered. You called Mom for your nightly check-in. ('Cause if you stopped now she'd think something was wrong and she'd freak out and you'd feel really bad for making Mom freak out and you are such a mama's girl, really.) You have no pressing engagements for the rest of the week, except the guild Naxx run Friday night, but that's less obligation and more "Woohoo, killing stuff, sweet loot, and frickin' awesome guildmates!"

What to do?

First, make sure the door to your room is closed. No need to have witnesses to your overwhelming nerdiness.

Now, reach under the bed for that package that came in Friday. (Amazon said it'd be delivered Monday, but packages from there always arrive early so no big deal.) It's already open since you had to check to make sure everything in your order arrived. (It did.) You told yourself you'd indulge after the public policy exam was done with as well as the paper, so you closed the box and shoved it under the bed for later. (You kinda wish it had come in Monday, 'cause that would have been a few days less of temptation, but you're Catholic. Maybe not a devout Catholic, but you sucked it up anyway.)

Guess what? It's later.

Open the box.

Take out the very shiny hardcover copy of All the Windwracked Stars by Elizabeth Bear. Mmm, science fiction. Ms. Bear is totally your new favorite science fiction author. (You still haven't forgiven Frank Herbert for the travesty that was The Dosadi Experiment, the bastard. You likely never will.) Then take out the copy of The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead by Max Brooks. Giggle a bit. (You're totally taking it with you tomorrow to read before class.)

Take out that other thing and put it aside for a moment. That one needs to be savored.

The last thing to take out is the official guide book that goes with that other thing. It's really frickin' huge. (You thought the Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy XII guides were huge. Obviously you were very, very wrong.) You're pretty sure if a radical environmentalist group saw you with it, they'd kill you in a really unspeakable way and your body (or what was left of it) would never be found.

Now, pick up the other thing. Time to savor.

It's Pokemon: Platinum.

Go ahead. Squeal.

...

You done yet?

...

Now?

...

Awesome, you're still breathing. Let's carry on.

Take off the plastic shrink-wrap and open the case. Dance a little, no one can see you.

Take out the game cartridge.

Pick up your Nintendo DS. (It's been sitting patiently on the table next to your bed since Friday and it surprisingly refrained from being a seductive lure to procrastinate. You should name it.)

Insert the game cartridge.

Turn on the DS.

Enjoy.

Note: referring to yourself in second person is even creepier than referring to yourself in third person. Stop it. Please.

([livejournal.com profile] predikit hasn't stopped spazzing about those two.) Dual specialization! Patterns!

Ashke: Ah, hell.
Eboncloud: *facepalm* She won't shut up now.
Lailya: PATTERNS! *dive tackles the tailoring patterns and sobs happily*

Eboncloud: There's something wrong with you if you're more excited about making clothes than currently raiding Naxxramas with your new guild.
Lailya: SILENCE, HEATHENS! Sshhh, babies, mama's here, don't listen to the silly Death Knights...
Ashke and Eboncloud: *sigh*

...Um, yes. Patterns. AND A TOURNAMENT! The Argent Tournament! Titles! The ability to represent your faction in the tournament or all of them at once! MOUNTED COMBAT! OH MY GOD, WE FINALLY HAVE MOUNTED COMBAT!

Highlord Darion Mograine: ...I was under the impression you and the Argent Crusade were preparing to build Justice Keep.
Highlord Tirion Fordring: Nope, Argent Coliseum.
Darion: But, Arthas? In Icecrown Citadel? Right over there? *waves vaguely in the direction of the gigantic metallic structure that dominates most of Icecrown*
Tirion: Screw Arthas, we must have blood sport!
Darion: *headdesk*

And new talents and abilities and items and Ulduar is shiiiiiiiny, lookit all the siege weaponry, and ooohhh, legendary item!

Yes, yes, it HAS been almost two months since my last entry, but there are more pressing matters!

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN! AT WORLD'S END! TRAILER!

*Loud, ear-piercing, fangirl shriek*

*flails around happily and watches trailer again*
You know, I was going to post something relatively productive, but of course I always forget the good stuff. *pfff*

In angry!DT news, the pilandial cyst has been back since Saturday, infected, and sitting hurts like hell! And today, fifth period, some moron sprayed the Tommy Girl Hilfinger crap on themselves. Normal perfume makes me wheeze; that crap made me dry heave for the rest of the day.

*adds 'destroy Tommy Hilfinger' to her Things To Do When I Take Over the World list*

Oh! I read this article today. Duuuuuuude.

All of DT's personalities: COOL!

^____^ I have been propelled to new levels of nerd-dom.

Oh! And Ultimate Book Store Trip to Borders yesterday! I go squee.

Yami no Matsuei volume 9 (The Count's even more of a perv!)
Fruits Basket volume 12 (Awww, Rit-chan on the cover.)
Fullmetal Alchemist volume 5 (Puppy with an automail leg on the cover!)
Fushigi Yugi volume 17 (I've been reading this series since it was first published in those gigantic editions that cost fifteen bucks)
The Green Brain by Frank Herbert (For third assessment. *sigh*)
Brightly Burning by Mercedes Lackey (About damn time.)
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (Geek love.)
Dragonspell by Donita K. Paul (Dragons! Yay!)
Homeland: The Legend of Drizzt, Volume I by R.A. Salvatore (*eyeboggles cover* Teh pretty...)
Some plushies (because Mama and I are suckers for 'em.)
New set of headphones for my CD player which makes my ears happy because they're comfy.

And now I go to plot out storylines in my head and randomly insert my favorite copyrighted characters (Ba'al, Kakashi, Watari (for craziness), Aya-kun, Schuldig, Chrno, other people I can't name off the top of my head) in them. Muahaha.

^-^
