You know what I hate? TULLE. It is evil. It does not hold pins and it kept getting caught on my presser foot.

BUT! My Water Pretear dress is now poofy! And I managed to get away with just having the crinoline to where the front of the dress is, the back still falls okay (for those of you not familiar with Pretear, this is the costume. Damn anime costumes not being subject to gravity!)

For the record, this would have been much easier had I done it from the get go instead of wearing it, realizing I don't like the physics and having to put a crinoline between the overskirt and the underskit. :p Oh well, I was doing alterations anyway since the bodice wasn't fitted properly. I'm really happy with how it looks now though.

So today was my big write off day because I spend the whole day TAing Organic Chemistry for the Life Sciences. It was pretty hectic. The second section went better than the first because I added things that were problematic in the first section to the pre-lab talk.

I also got to demonstrate the procdure for cleaning up broken glassware in my pre-lab talk. Because I may have kinda sorta dropped something. :p

And a meme from [livejournal.com profile] thepodsquad

Yesterday was definiely crazy mad fun. After trying some new stuff in the lab (story of my life until Reading Week when we all get kicked out to focus on writing teh thesis...), I went home and made some yummy chocolate cookies with butterscoth chips. The reason for this was twofold.

The first was that the senior Toads were having a potluck. The Wild TOads, for those of you who are currently WTFing that last statement, is the research group that I'm part of. We decided it would be fun for all of us Honours students to get together outside of the lab/Cragg. The idea was that we were NOT going to talk about chemistry. This didn't last, as chemistry is currently eating all of our lives. Still, it was fun to get together with everyone. Nathan brought WINE, which we thought was pretty classy for a potluck. Even if half the group was so sleep deprived that they were getting tipsy just from the fumes when the bottle was opened. The other half of the group was happy we took Organic IV LAST year, even if it did mean having Langler. I couldn't drink, but I'm kinda used to that. Erin and Lachlan made nachos, and provided a place to hold the thing. Justin brought shepherd's pie, and Dom brought this REALLY yummy cake. I had to skip out early though, since I had other plans for the night.

[livejournal.com profile] silver_saber and Sara wanted to hide from their residence house party (a sentiment I can definitely identify with), so they came to visit us. My timing was actually pretty good, since I was heading home right when Vicki was heading out to try to find poor Sara who had gotten lost on her way to our house. We found her, so all was well. Then we marathoned all of Pretear while eating a ridiculous amount of popcorn and cookies. Have I mentioned lately how much I love that series? It's quite possibly my favourite anime. SUCH an amazing bunch of characters. Himeno is such a fun heroine, she's just so different from other magical girls. Himeno/Hayate is still such a FRUSTRATING couple though. :p SO much fun, we didn't even notice it being three in the morning by the time we finished. Well, I knew it must be something like that, but I didn't feel tired, I was too busy watching the pretty shiny. (ANd the random badly drawn sections that appear to have been animated by drunken monkeys.)

Ryan took me to the fair last night, which was really fun. Plenty of ways to spin around. He decided that if we were going to do one of the cliche dates, he was going to go all out on cliche. So he attempted to win me a prize and failed embarassingly. Then he switched to a different game and won me a cute stuffed seal. It's adorable. :p Then I bought us cotton candy and we decided to wander down to the stuff on Bridgestreet. We ran into Dom, who said Meet Your Prof Night was still going on at Dooly's and everyone was asking about me, so we headed down there so Ryan could meet my other circle of friends. The first person he met was STEVE. There's something special about running into your thesis supervisor and having him demand some of your cotton candy. :p Steve proceeded to ask Ryan about his knowledge of The Simpsons, Sandman and Firefly. :p We got to see most of my other chemistry people too, so yay.

When I got back, I attempted fudge. Not sure yet if it turned out, things set slowly in our fridge. :p Either way, I also made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. In a moment of pure recipe misreading genius, I put in about twice as much peanut butter as the recipe calls for. :p Needless to say, they weren't so much with the ball shape holding, so they're very THIN cookies. Still tasty though. My random addition of ginger seems to have been a good idea, too. :D

Today, we got to march in the parade and hand out comic books to kids. I wore my Fire Pretear costume, because the top was loose enough to go over a warmer shirt, and Katikabe let me borrow a pair of tights so my legs wouldn't freeze. I got called Wonder Woman at one point, but hey, it beats being called a costumed freak, right? :p

It's RAGWEED season. I don't like ragweed season. :p

Ryan, Vicki and I watched Guys and Dolls today. I was sneezing all through Adelaide's Lament, which led to some HIGHLY amusing moments. :p (For those of you not up on your musicals, the song is about how her fiance not committing is causing her cold :p)

I played my Pretear Sims today. The kids got in to private school, and Sasame didn't even have to seduce the Headmaster. Not that Sim Sasame would have complained. :p Kei's MPreg Alien Baby is now a toddler. Kei sat there studying while Goh dealt with the whole "baby turning into a toddler" thing. Of course, the first thing Kei DID when the baby was born was hand it to someone else. Oh Sim Kei, you amuse me so. "I may have an MPreg alien baby, but that doesn't mean I can't dump it on Goh!" :p

Also, I really need to get more RAM. Because lag sucks. :p

"Now I think I need to write a crossover fic where Shin has a run in with the Hands of Blue just so he can bleed cutely from his eyeballs!"- Gwenna

So yeah, I was going through old QotDs for the heck of it and then she said that and I just HAD to quote it. She sat there correcting the exac t wording. 'Cause she's silly. :p

Also, next time I make my mother watch Firefly, someone remind me to confiscate her laptop so she actually WATCHES it. :p

Pretear night was a blast. It's almost bedtime for Ewoks. Tomorrow you'll probably get new thoughts on the series. Tonight you get QotDs!

[livejournal.com profile] nukichan when Himeno was about to Pret with Hayate in episode seven:
"Take that you dark Pretear-- OH SHIT!"

[livejournal.com profile] nukichan when Lucky Star started playing at the end of episode nine (aka "The one where it all goes to hell"):
"The naked chibi bums aren't making me happy anymore!"

[livejournal.com profile] nukichan on preting and the abundance of tentacle monsters:
"It's like porn for elementary school!"

It was also HILARIOUS watching her whimper and rock through the entire last three episodes. Laugh at her trauma? Yes, yes I will. :p

Anime!Kei was, as usual, the cause of great distress.

Also, we TOTALLY caught Ryan shipping Kei/Goh!

So, Pretear night on Friday. I'd like to start around 6:30 so we can finish the series at a reasonable hour for getting up the next morning. Is this a major conflict for anyone?

Oh, Katikabe, any chance I can borrow your Soc dictionary tomorrow morning?

Another fun night of anime club. Because clearly after the Escaflowne marathon, we needed more animeness. :p

We watched Hana Yore Dongo (Something like that... live action, the English title of the manga is Boys Over Flowers) which was great fun as usual. :D After that, we watched Cowboy Bebop, which is fun. Not the GREATEST series in the world, but definitely worth watching. Then it was Gunslinger Girl, which I so utterly love. It's so cute... and disturbing. Of course, the cute is what MAKES it so disturbing in the first place. I'm also so utterly in love with the music and the art in it. Looooooooove! Then we watched episodes five and six of Pretear. I think, at this point, that it goes without saying that I love and adore that series. To itty bitty pieces. :p

Oh, and I finished my Fire Pretear skort! It turned out reall snazzy, I'm happy. :D Now I just need to make the blouse and the cape in the next two weeks. :p

We're having Pretear night on Friday. Much earlier than Escaflowne night so it's actually possible to make it to Toads on Saturday morning. Especially since I want to start working on my lab for Organometallics then.

Tomorrow, I need to do a pile of Organic and read the book for Soc. That's getting done while watching The Wizard of Oz. Then I need to hit the journals to figure out what I'm DOING for Organometallics. And find a paper to do my Kinetics project on, but I'm hoping it'll be something I come across while I'm designing my complex so I can do the project on an area of chemistry I find more interesting than Physchem.

G&G is now invading my dreams. I fell back asleep this morning. I'm not sure what the first part of my dream was, but I "woke up" from that and dreamed that I looked over at my alarm clock and saw that it was 11:40. Apparently I know the rehearsal schedule even in my dreams, because I freaked out. Today's rehearsal is at 11:30. As I was running down the street, I ACTUALLY woke up and saw that it was 8:00 and I still had time for a shower before church. :p

I had entertainment at church today. There was this absolutely ADORABLE baby sitting next to me. I got to hear a fascinating discourse on his cute little red leather booties. :P And he held a sound at the end of the Alleluia as long as the rest of the people did. It was SO CUTE!

We watched the first four episodes of Pretear at anime last night. I was reminded of exactly why I adore that series so much. I wanna watch it again now! Katie, you may have to watch it WITH me instead of just borrowing. :p We had far too much fun with the sexual undertones. I love anime club. :p We also watched Samurai 7, which was not ungood, though not really my taste, and Love Hina, which is much the same way. I'm not the intended audience for either though. :p

Classics wasn't too bad, although the questions were rather out of left field sometimes. I apparently forgot to do one of the readings, but I could STILL identify the passage. Not so much with giving another incident in the same myth though. :p The answers were a lot longer than we were led to believe they would be though. The last one looked SUSPICIOUSLY like a short essay.

Yesterday was a Designated Slacking Day. I played Sims more or less all day. Sim Sasame is FAR too much fun with his Romance Simness. There was maid sex. :p It took FAR longer to achieve than it should have, but there was definitely maid sex. :p Sim Goh is now engaged to Sim Mawata, but it's going to be a long engagement because if she moves in while Sim Sasame is still there, the lag will be DEATH. :p

Today I studied a bit, though not as much as I meant to. TOmorrow, LOTS of studying. Joy. :p

I am currently eating a roast beef and chocolate icing sandwich. This was not my initial plan, in case any of you are wondering if I've finally COMPLETELY lost it. I just happen to be a total clutz. I was bringing my lunch over to my desk when I dropped the sandwich and cake. I caught them, but they still made contact and there was definite icing transfer. :p

We have cake because we are geeks. Yesterday was Shin's birthday. OBVIOUSLY he needed a cake. We even had candles and party hats. We propped up his profile in the manga on the table so we would have something to sing to. Vicki and I demonstrated that between the two of us, we are perfectly capable of blowing out six candles. So Shin gets his wish. Which we assume was "To get better!", thereby explaining the ending of the manga. :p

For the record, it's a d*mn good cake. Despite my only succeeding on separating three out of four eggs. :p Also, it's REALLY obvious that my copy of The Joy of Cooking is really old. It assumes all the readers are female and keeps talking about how "Every housewife should be able to..." This led to us concluding Bree probably has the same edition of the book I do. :p

This weekend, I totally failed at getting up. I was going to go to the lab on Saturday morning, but I woke up with a bit of a headache, so I decided to go back to sleep. Then on Sunday I honestly tried to get up for church, but I fell asleep when I sat down on the bed to get changed. When I woke back up, it was 9:30, so that didn't work particularly well. :p

In G&G, we did "It's Girly Time!" (aka "Many a New Day") on Saturday, which was a bit tricky but I was starting to get it by the end. Which is good, because I have to show it to Sammy before Classics today. :p On Sunday, we did "The Farmer and the Cowman", which is fun because we get to do-si-do. The little girls have an absolutely ADORABLE dance in it. :p

Sasame's pimp suit? Totally inspired by Labyrinth. Yet another fashion disaster that can be blamed on Takako being sealed some time in the 80s. :p

Ryan took me out for Chinese Food, which was fun. Next time I have to remember to say I DON'T want the sweet and sour sauce though. My fortune cookie told me that "A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance." I think I can deal with that. :p

Did my Quantum assignment. I'm pretty sure I got the first two questions, may have muddled through the third and I started the fourth but the math exploded my brain so I stopped.

Goh went off on a random angsty tangent again when I was writing today. Why does he keep DOING that? He's GOH for goodness sake!

I'm not thrilled at having a lab that goes until 5:30 tomorrow. It's the Friday before a long weekend, I want to go HOME!

Especially since I think I have Daddy convinced to buy me Thud. :p

Like Sky Knows Rain

It's Hayate/Himeno fluff. It's cute! And in character! And ACTUALLY GOOD!

Yes, you read that right.

It's a Pretear fic. And it DOESN'T SUCK!


Midterm went decently, I think.

More importantly, I HAVE HOPE FOR MY FANDOM!
