OMG GOblins, a webcomic about D&D goblins should not make me wibble this much! And yet... *WIBBLE*

Looooong day of rehersals today. It was the first rehersal with the pit, which is ALWAYS an adventure. :p We dealt with costumes, which was pretty painless for me. Unlike poor Brian and his hilarious outfit for the Emerald City. :p

I sent my grad school list off to Steve last night, and he had suggestions sitting in my inbox by this morning.

There was more crazy mad planning at the anime meeting last night. For some reason, people think I should be involved with the anime/geek music panel. Can't think WHY. :p We watched Noir, which enjoys flashing back to earlier in the episode. Despite all the flashbacks, we're still not sure what's going on. Then we made everyone watch the crack on every drug known to man and some that AREN'T which is Excel Saga. We finished up with BLood: THe Last Vampire. That one was completely and utterly NOT my thing, so I started my Zoe/Wash ficathon fic. I think I finally figured out what I'm going to do!

I got back and found out that the zip for my Firefly soundtrack over at [livejournal.com profile] fst was already dead. I posted the thing and people managed to kill FOUR GIGS of YSI bandwidth in a matter of HOURS. I guess my strange song calls have gone over well. AMusingly, I had MULTIPLE people uploading better versions of "Married" for me, which makes me ridiculously happy because that song is ADORABLE. :p (And utterly ZOe/Wash :p)

Last night, Tess and I totally used up our ellipsis quota for the next TWO YEARS on a single line of dialogue. Six feels a bit excessive, but that's just how the line worked out. :p

Also, I'm stupid and stayed up WAY too late doing this, so now I'm a sleepy Ewok. I'd better not do that again tonight, since we have an 8:30 AM group meeting. :p

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List each one in your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance it has.

Like everyone else, I'm cheating and doing every fifth. :p

Lots of icons )

Also, still no Goblins. :p

Been a couple days since I updated this. :p Friday we watched more Firefly because it is VERY shiny. Including the OMG WASH! episode, which is quite possibly my favorite. THen I stayed up ridiculously late chattering online. And slept until 3:30 on Saturday. I figure I was more tired than I thought, and the whole grey and rainy thing didn't help. :p

We watched X-Men 3 Saturday night. It was pretty cool. Bit thin in the plot department, but still gutsy. Niko amused the entire theatre by yelling "THAT'S NOT WHAT I WANTED TO SEE!" after the after credit scene. :p

Sunday was a very movie day. We went down to MOvie Experts intending to rent Lion King II and A Knight's Tale. Then we found out they have a deal where it would actually be cheaper for us to rent three or four movies, so we picked up Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Clerks. We only had time to watch the first two on Sunday though. Both of which were very awesome.

Today we watched Men in Tights, which was HILARIOUS. The "We are men! Men in tights!" song SLAYS me! I must have it!

I also picked up the Serenity comic, which was a nifty little bridge. I was REALLY impressed with the art. The characters actually looked like themselves, which is more than I can say for a lot of Star Wars comics. :p

The academic timetable has been out for a few days now, for all the difference it makes to us poor fourth year chem students. Half our courses may not even be figured OUT until some time in August. :p

My schedule as it stands )

Still no Goblins. :p
yubsie: (Default)
B+ in Kinetics, yay. Not surprised that Organometallics is the last one to come in. :p Like, at ALL. :p

Played a bunch of Fable today. Infinitely spawning zombies that explode with one hit are USEFUL for maxing out one's stats. I'm actually procrastinating on the last quest of the game, so yay.

Also, Goblins finally updated. *dies laughing*

Birthday was fun, even if my sister is silly. We quizzed her on the rest of the family birthdays. She only got my brother right. Even if you throw in getting her OWN birthday right, that's still only 40%, and therefore she FAILS. :p

My birthday cake was yummy and chocolate and SPELLED CORRECTLY. My mother asked the poor guy at the bakery THREE TIMES if he could spell and then watched him like a hawk while he wrote my name. My sister tried to get him to write "Happy Birthday Misspelled!", but Mom overuled her. :p

I got a really nice suit for my birthday. It kinda freaks me out a litte, because it makes me look like some sort of adult or something. :p I got The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Mom had been planning to get me Rent, but I kinda foiled that plan. So I was escorted to the DVD section to point to something and say "I want THAT!" :p I also got A Chorus Line, which I can't wait to watch. Oh, and a kilogram of jellybeans and a pretty elephant figurine! :D

Went to the doctor this morning to get my migraine and asthma medication re-prescribed, yay. Found out that the reason he's not in on Wednesday afternoon is golf. Why is it ALWAYS golf?

STILL no Goblins. :p Also no new grades in. :p Not surprised about the grades, but I was kinda hoping there would be Goblins. :p
yubsie: (Default)
Umm, my darling spamming flist? I hope you're happy. I was only offline for a DAY. WHY did it take me until skip=160 to catch up? :p

No Goblins yet. :p
yubsie: (Default)
Hmm, so according to that My LJ thingy...

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] missrose54!

Two hours to doom.

(And still no Goblins :p)

Had a fun time at home for Easter. Though my family made fun of my sleeping habits. :p I'm not sure why I slept so late... guess I'm still feeling some effects of being sick. :p

I read The Li'l Endless Storybook to my sister with voices. Yes, she's 18. I read it anyway, because I like reading out loud. :p It was amusing though: Every time I read Delirium referring to Barnabas as "Puppy", Topaz looked up because she thought I was talking about her. :p

Speaking of Topaz, she was WONDEFULLY behaved the entire time I was home. And you know... she's actually pretty cute. :p

Most of my time home was spent either studying or at church. Didn't make it home in time for Holy Thursday mass, but I wasn't expecting to. I'm not sure I've EVER made it to that mass, when I think about it. I did make it to Good Friday in good health so I didn't feel wobbly at any point during the Passion. One of the poor candidates took ill during the dismissal. They had to take her to the hospital, and then her entire family caught it. Now she's getting baptized NEXT week.

The Easter Vigil was pretty spiffy, even though it rained, thus less standing by the bonfire. Father Jeff has a flair for the long and dramatic, so we had EVERY reading. The Easter Vigil readings are basically the Old Testament in a nutshell, so this amounted to about an hour of reading in the dark. Fortunately, they simulated dawn by bringing the lights up GRADUALLY. Silly Father Jeff decided to call everyone to the font for the baptism... even though we probably could have seen better from our seats. ANd then he forgot to tell us to bring our candles with us.

One of my favorite things about the Easter season is the super cool Gloria. It's got a really neat rhythm to it. And then it drops down on "LOrd God, lamb of God"... which SOUNDS really cool, AND goes back down into my range when it was starting to push it.

Alas, my singing voice was not entirely back. I got through the Good Friday music, because it's mostly low, but the cough kept catching up to me on the high notes at the vigil.

Other than that, I basically just studied ORganic, because the final DOOM is tomorrow. The most frustrating thing is that the LAST lecture ended by leaving off a synthesis unfinished. So I'll be studying along and hit the material about enandiandric acids, and it'll just STOP. It's so ANNOYING, I just keep sitting there going "But how did they FINISH it?"

Okay, so I'm a chem geek. :p

EDIT: Oh, and guess what? That's right... Goblins hasn't updated!
yubsie: (Default)
First off, new icon! It's Dies Horribly, my favorite character in Goblins. :D

Did some Organic today. I don't like Organic. Then we went to Joey's. We actually had reservations, so naturally the restaurant was half empty. :p

After that, I stopped by Ryan's. We watched a random episode of Inuyasha, which is amusing, I'll give it that. Then we played FFX. PRETTY!

Really not a fan of being sick during Holy Week. Today was Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday means that the Passion gets read (There's two gospels, the actual Palm Sunday gospel gets read outside the church before we process in with palms). The Passion is REALLY LONG. I'm feeling leaps and bounds better today, but it was still pretty brutal. I was supporting myself on the pew in front of me the entire time. I feel kinda bad about it, but I was kinda thinking "Okay, Jesus, could you hurry up and DIE ALREADY?" because I wasn't sure how much longer I could keep standing. One poor girl DID faint. I almost collapsed once, but I managed to catch myself on the pew. I had instructions from Katie and Jerrod to kindly collapse TOWARDS them so I would actually be catchable, but that proved unnecessary.

And there was free food after Mass, because this is the last time some of the students will be here at St. Vincent's. I had fun chatting with some of the church ladies and the other students. Only one guy stuck around, commenting "Well, this certainly illustrates the good old Mount A ratio..."


*does the Goblins dance*

Yes, there's a Goblins dance. It looks a lot like the Ewok dance, but it's done sitting in front of a computer screen.

Soc final went fine. There were some WEIRD questions on it though. Random statistics, mostly. No matter how long I had studied, I just wouldn't have BOTHERED with how many hours a week grade eight boys spend playing video games. Amusingly, the first question was "What quote is found on the first page of the handbook for this class?" I WTFed and then circled the right answer.

Best obviously wrong answer of the exam? "The paper airplane excercise demonstrated... c) That Mount A doesn't have an Engineering program"

But yeah, that mostly went okay. I felt like my head was underwater the whole time.

I'm making progress, I really am. Despite killing two boxes of tissues. :p I'm still not 100% though. The walk home left me pretty exhausted.

I also made a good chunk of progress on my Organometallics final. Which is good, because I want to finish it tomorrow. I wish I hadn't lost the past three days. :( There's just SO much left for me to do now and not enough time to do it.

And of course, Goblins hasn't updated. :p
yubsie: (Default)
Kinetics lab actually getting near done. Figured out structure for Organic lab. Goblins finally updated. (Incidently... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)

The universe is due tomorrow, but this may yet be a good day.

Now my immediate future as a series of dates!

Last day of classes: OMG TOMORROW
First exam: April 8 (aka OMG SATURDAY... but it's Soc. I'm studying for it the night before and that is IT. I have my Organometallics take home, and that is MORE IMPORTANT.)
Last exam: April 20 (because someone in student services hates me :p)
Birthday: April 23
Little brother's confirmation: May 4 (Which I wasn't expecting to be able to go to, but...)
First day of work: May 8

If I just keep hitting refresh every ten minutes, Goblins will update!

No, eh? Darn. :p

So much animeness yesterday. I watched a random episode of Ranma with Ryan, which was amusing. Much as one would expect of a random episode of Ranma. Amusing, but I'm not dying for more or anything. :p

Nasty evil mean Bill played... disturbing THINGS at the beginning of the meeting. Evil mean nasty Bill! Then we actually watched anime and generally glared at Bill. :p

First up was Getbackers, which I'm still quite fond of. I'd already seen the episodes we were watching, so I wrote Death/Death while still half watching. Yay only half reading subtitles!

Then we watched Yami no Matsui. Ryan turned around and stubbornly read Sandman instead. :p Poor boy is really not a fan of shounen-ai. Even though we still TOTALLY caught him shipping Kei/Goh last time we watched Pretear! :p I enjoyed it, at any rate. :p It's very pretty. :p

After that, we were nice to Ryan and watched Love Hina. I half watched and wrote Death/Death. I still managed to follow everything that was going on. We made many jokes about the fact that Ryan's living arrangements for next year vaguely resemble a harem anime (except, of course, for the part where Ryan already HAS a girlfriend who ISN'T going to be living in that house... yes, I refer to myself in the generic third person! :p).

Finally, we watched... Gatchaman. It was so HILARIOUSLY awful. It had a team of superheroes in these HIDEOUS generic superhero costumes. There was a bird motif, which meant jagged capes and pointy helmets! :p The best part had to be that they were the SCIENCE NINJA TEAM though. How can you NOT love something that's terrible enough to have a SCIENCE NINJA TEAM? :p

Incidently, Goblins? Just switch the designated update date to Sunday and stop lying to us! :p
yubsie: (Default)
I give up. I'll finish this tomorrow and EMAIL it to him. I was hoping to hand in a printed copy, but if I stay up any later, I'm going to make myself sick.

I'm so setting myself up for a migraine here. My prescription ran out a couple days ago and I'm still trying to figure out what the BLAZES to do about getting a new one.

This would have been so much easier if Firefox didn't keep crashing when I had a bunch of tabs with relevant articles in them open.

And you know what? Goblins STILL hasn't updated. :p

Also, I have a hundred hours of music on my computer. So why do the same songs keep repeating tonight?
yubsie: (Default)
Tess is evil. Very evil. Because... Destiny/Rambaldi OTP. It's so many kinds of wrong. I think I'll go whimper in the corner now.

Today was a fun video game day. I beat Quest for Glory I with my magic user, Neville. It was funny. By the end, it was all "Cheetaur? I KEEL YOU DEAD? Goblin? ACK! RUN AWAY!" Not because goblins are particularly tough. No, simply because they CRASH THE GAME. Why do I always have one character with huge crashy problems?

After that, I started a fighter character. Who I named Swordy. He's kinda fun. The way he gets through puzzles is, well, he solves his problems with violence. Need to get a ring out of a tree? The thief climbs the tree, the magic user casts Fetch and the fighter... the fighter throws rocks at it. :p Plus, he has a sword, which kills things SO much better than a dagger.

I got kinda bored of that though, because I'd already played the basic story recently with Neville. So I installed QfG II and imported Grig (my thief). It's interesting working with a text parser, I must admit. Also, I HATE THE STREETS IN THAT CITY! I am going to be so PERMANENTLY lost. It took me all of the day just to find the money changer so I can actually buy supplies from the merchants.

I also discovered that Avernum 4 is out! :D I don't like the Avernum remakes as much as the original Exile series, but this is still really exciting because there never was an Exile 4. This is all new story! The single most exciting fact is that the creator finally realized that making people pay gold for training was a royal pain. I mean, it added a certain element of realism, but it also added an element of going to the character editor to get more money. :p

Skills ranged in gold cost from 10 for a level of skill with a given weapon to 250 for a level of mage spells. Your average goblin gives around five gold. You have six party members (four in the remakes).

Starting to see the problem?

But now the problem is gone and I am a happy Ewok! :D

Oh, and Goblins finally updated. It was worth the wait, too. DIES HORRIBLY WAS IN IT! DIES HORRIBLY WAS IN IT!
