*sigh* Thank the heavens it's Thanksgiving!!! I'm so excited to go home!!! Hm, let's see, what's happened since my last update? Oh yeah. Johannah died on Friday. I went to the Memorial Service last night. It was open casket, but due to some wonderful twists of fate and people's heads, I never saw her. See, I have this little thing called necrophobia, and seeing dead anything else creeps me out enough. I never ever want to see a dead person. Ever. I don't even understand why we have the whole open casket thingy. I mean, if we believe that bodies and souls are separate entities and that the soul has gone on to someplace else, that being the person, then why do people want to stare at an empty shell? My dad and I were talking about it last night, actually.

So yeah, I need to do some final packing here and then I get to go home T_T. Yayness! If anyone wants to do anything with me, give me a ring. Preferably on my home phone, but my cell might be on if your lucky. Elsa and Mike are coming, but I'm totally willing to ditch them, lol. Well, I do need to spend some time with them, obviously, but I have no problem hanging out with other people. And it's her birthday on Sunday, and I have no idea of what to give her. El will probably be getting a very nice card, lol. Okay, gotta go! Laters!

Shit shit shit shit shit. This week has sucked eggs!!! I could complain about how I didn't get into either show (no, not even the chorus in Pirates), or add on to my last entry and I haven't even checked to see if it's working here. I could go on, but...

Yeah, remember than friend of mine that I mentioned on Saturday? She apparently took a turn for the worse tonight and it doesn't look like she's gonna make it. Why did this have to happen?! I mean, I wasn't that close to her, but still! I know her! I thought she was gonna be okay being the eternally hopeful soul that I am. Ivan found out around the time the show started, so he called everyone else and we all met after the picture call. Hey God, if you feel like handing out a miracle, Johanna could really use one right now! Dammit, this sucks...

On a brighter note, I got to see my dad today! My mom had to fly to Denver to see some friends, and he stayed up here, hung out with me at work, saw March of the Penguins (awesome movie), and then saw the play again. The poor guy was up at 3AM, so he was really tired. Poor Daddy... Ivan told him what was going on while we were all in the theater, so at least I don't have to tell my parents.

So please guys, even though it looks really uberly grim, could you still pray for Jo? And for her family? I mean, they all ready lost her brother cause he died at the scene of the crash. I feel so sorry for her sister cause they were triplets and she wasn't in the car, so she's fine physically. ERG! What am I supposed to do now?! *throws random objects*

Don't you love how bright and cheery this entry was? ^^;

Okay, I gotta make this fast. For one, yay! I've been on LJ for a year! Ah, the randomness... I may start seeing what that memories thing does, cause I've had some classic entries. Two, yay again! It's my dad's birthday! He's ** years old. We went bowling with my uncles, and he had the second highest score and he like never goes bowling. My grandma and my mom are making him a cake. I got him a great card. It says "It's your birthday! I got you a card!" And the inside says, "This is the inside!" and on the back is says "Here's the back!" I loved it. Other than that, I've been keeping as busy as I can down here. I'll be home late afternoon/ early evening on Saturday and then it'll be all packing for school. Blah. Oh well. I'm pretending to get ready to go to the pharmacy (again). We're having malts! Seriously, if you're ever in Dallas, go to the Highland Park Pharmacy. Best malts and ice cream sodas EVER. Okay, laters!

Well, I'm here at my grandma's house! I have been for about an hour and a half now. And I'm all ready bored stiff! I mean, I love coming to Dallas and all, but sitting around and talking is not my idea of fun. And that's all these people know how to do. My two uncles haven't even shown up. Good grief, I'm going to be the only person under 50 here. Except Toulee. But he has a short attention span. Like me, only different. What really stinks is that I don't even have first dibs on the TV. And it's usually food that I don't care too much for. Plus, with these braces now, I don't know what I can eat. I really wish there was something worth doing here... I was really smart and brought my Game Boy and then proceeded to forget to save the transfer data I put into my Golden Sun game so I can't play that. Well, I could, but where's the fun in that? The Gold Password is freaking impossible to use, anyway. I have other games, but they're not as fun and I've beaten them one too many times. They need some good new GBA games stat. Man, the internet here is even like the lowest grade possible. It's worse than on my usual computer. My icon isn't shining or whatever you call that. If I end up using that one on this post, lol. I need to write, too. But all I brought was my notebook. Maybe that'll work. I don't know. I'm 19. Fun for me is going out and doing stuff, not sitting around telling stories about stuff that happened to you or your family members. Fun is eating junk food and watching cartoons, not eating chicken cooked in whatever sauce and watching baseball. Baseball is more fun live. Actually, I may get to go to a Rangers game. I haven't been there in nearly ten years. My last game of any kind was at Wrigley when I was 16. Go Cubs!!! I also have a few more things to shop for, so maybe I can make a fun trip out of this. ...I should have totally brought my Zim DVD. I think my Grandma has a DVD player. Or maybe Fruits Basket. Darn it! ...I want a Game Cube. Okay, I'm done whining for now. I'll be back soon, though. Cause there's nothing better to do here.

I haven't updated in a while... Frankly, it's because my life was really boring and now that it's interesting I'm too busy. So, here goes:

Shawn's home!!! Yay! He came in last night and will be here until Sunday. I'm so happy! He's so much fun! I was kind of afraid he'd want his DVDs back cause I haven't had a chance to watch them yet, but it sounds like I can keep them for a while longer. Actually, we watched one of the movies last night. It's like the best movie ever. Of course, that's Miazaki for you (I can't spell). I saw Howl's Moving Castle on Monday and it was great. The one I watched with Shawn last night was the one that you never see anywhere, "My Neighbor Totoro." As I said, I loved it to death. It was the cutest thing ever. Shawn even says it's one of his favorites. He even told me the order to watch the other ones in. Kiki's Delivery Serivce next, then Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Porko-Rosso, and, quote, Grave of the Fireflies when I'm in the mood for the "saddest movie ever." Then all I'll need to do is hunt down Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind and I've got the Studio Ghibli movies covered! These are the people that Pixar idolizes, so you know they're good. But I highly suggest Totoro to everyone.

Let's see, what else? Um, huh. I guess my life's just been boring otherwise. Oh wait! I thought of some stuff! Over the last month or so, I've been getting these weird red bruise things everywhere, and we think we've finally figured out how to stop them (I had to go to the dermatologist...), but they're going to take FOREVER to heal, and I can't wear long sleeves and pants when it's hot, so if you see me and notice all of that red stuff, that's what happened.

My mom will kill me for this next part, but I'm rather worried, even though she isn't. She didn't even tell me about it until a week ago, which made it that much worse, but I didn't want to mention it until we got the positive, which was today. Hear me out before you freak out and run out to buy flowers or something. The very short story is my mom has skin cancer. The long "there's nothing to worry about" story is that it's Basil Cell (sp?), which the the most common and easiest to take care of one. All they have to do is remove the skin (all of it, down to the bone) where the cancer is, and it's just a little tiny spot on the top of her head, and she's all good. Well, I don't know how it's supposed to heal, and I keep telling her we're going to go out and buy her a lot of hats, but yeah. I'm worried, but that's just me. It's nothing to freak out about. I just thought you all should know. The lesson here is: Wear hats and sunscreen!!!

Until something else interesting happens again:

I'm going to Chicago tomorrow! Yay! I finally get to see "Curse of the Crying Heart." We can't see "Dave DaVinci Saves the Universe," though, cause my brothers in both and Curse takes precedence cause it's a big theater festival thingy out there. I'm so excited! It's this samurai thing, and I guess my brother is a demon. He's the villain of the trilogy. This is part two. Okay, I'm done talking about the play. I haven't really been to Chicago since last July (excluding the plane switching in October), so it'll be fun. I love Chicago. If there was voice over work there, I'd totally live there. Not just because I could go to a lot of Cubs games, either. I just love the atmosphere there. Well, I have a 9 hour car ride ahead (isn't it funny how the states freaking border each other, but I could probably get to Kansas faster?), and I haven't packed yet. My mom is staring at me funny. I better go. See ya when I get back!


(By the way, if you see my dad, he couldn't come, so say hi to him. Especially because we're going to miss most of Father's Day. ...I haven't gotten him anything yet XD)

Well, outside of my two random entries earlier, here's how my birthday went:

I woke up, wrote, and opened presents. My mom got me like fifty million cards, I swear. But I got some funny T Shirts, DVDs, and some drawing stuff and my Grandma sent me brownies and my brother, who is still the best gift giver in my family, found a cel from Inuyasha online. Yeah. He says he chooses to believe it's real, so I'll go with that ^_^.

Then I went to work, which is usually boring. Except this time, about 45 minutes in my stomach started killing me. I had only had a few sips of juice, so I didn't know what the problem was, and I decided to lay down in the coat closet because no one was there and if someone did show up, they'd just think I was checking on something. So, I stayed there in pain for a while, and finally decided to go to the bathroom, where I proceeded to blarf several seconds later. Yes, I said blarf. It was mostly nothing, too, which made it suck even more. Then I felt awful for the next two hours and sipped on some 7 Up. Then, I felt better and started eating. My parents called around this point to talk to me, and apparently it had been snowing in Michigan, which made me laugh. I said, "See, you should have stayed here with me!" Yeah. Then I went back to my room, ordered pizza, and sat around doing nothing online. It wasn't as god awful as I expected, but still not my best. Oh well. I'm 19, at least ^_^.

Funny story really fast before I have to go to the theater. Now, I checked my mail yesterday, which included two campus thingies and a box from my grandma. Today, I had seven things in there. And considering it's a very small mail box (they give you little cards to get big packages), it looked really stuffed. Five alone were from my parents. I think four of them are birthday cards or something (why they sent me four, I'll never know) and one's supposed to be job applications, so hopefully I'm opening the right one. I also got a card from my aunt and a big envelope thing from my brother. Apparently this is something he "had to give me" so I'm excited to open it on Sunday. I've being a very good girl and waiting! Okay, I have to go now. But life still sucks.


(Two days!)

Well, today is basically the day for celebrating my birthday even though it's in exactly one week ^^. My parents will be in Michigan next weekend, so they came up today and we went to dinner, had cake at this little park, and I opened one present. It was fun, and yet still sort of depressing. Later tonight, we're doing a mass birthday cookie cake for Christie (who's birthday is today), me, and this other girl on our floor whose birthday is Tuesday. It seems like I won't be doing much on my real b-day. I mean, my "friends" here are limited. It's kind of sad. Hey, anybody wanna take a trip to Sioux Falls next Sunday? *grins*

And now, I must go back to my horribly messed up life. Well, it's been worse, but German has taken a bad turn. That's all I'll say for now. I pray that I can get everything back in line while there's still time for me to salvage my GPA. Plus, my mom said she would buy me Invader Zim (I told her I wanted it, even though I've only seen like two episodes) if I got As and Bs. Must work harder! lol.

Hopefully, I'll post a lot of stuff on ff.net on my birthday. But candy__chan's the only person here who reads those. And you guys frankly don't need to check them out, cause my stories are kind of weird and really bad. But I thought I should say that. ...I need to finish that hat. I've been working on it all week.

kaito: (Default)
It's my mom's XXth birthday (censored in case she doesn't want the word out)! ...And she and like everybody else in my freaking family get to go see Shawn's play. But not me. Why, you ask? BECAUSE I HAVE CHOIR TOUR ALL NEXT WEEK!!! *fumes silently* Sure, I know it'll be fun, but I REALLY wanna see it... especially cause they have some cool equipment set up for special effects.

The final for my class is tomorrow. It shouldn't be too bad, though. This was a fun month. I still really need to do laundry and clean up in here before we leave on Saturday morning. I think I'll need to buy some stuff, too... Maybe Christie is going out sometime.

I am bored and tired. But no bed yet. We've got improv tonight, and we're finally diving head first into the stuff for the long-form style show. We're doing a Survivor/reality TV thing, and although the "research" is slowly killing my brain cells, making fun of that sad excuse for entertainment will be quiet enjoyable! ..That is, if I'm allowed to be in the main part of the cast. Stupid being a freshman... My brain has also been hating me lately, and I once again have horrible writers block, which is bad cause now I doubt I'll get anything written until February 6th cause that's when we come back. Fortunately, it'll be early so everyone else can watch the Stupid Bowl... I mean Super Bowl.

I have a bunch of random quizzes again, but I just don't feel like posting any of them... Maybe my next entry. Besides, I can't remember how to do a cut (although I did find out).

Until... much later,

Well, I'm back from that lovely holiday known as Thanksgiving Break. It was so nice to be home for a few days, but now... *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh* I'm back to being bored and lethargic. Not that I wasn't this weekend, mind you, but it's a bad thing now. And now, it's Christmas time!!!

I still don't know what to do about presents. I think I know what I'm getting my mom and dad (Dr. Mario and the Adventure of Link respectively), but I don't know WHAT to get anyone else. I have an idea, but it's sort of stupid, and there are a few people that I'd want to give more to, you know? Yeah, I totally didn't realize the new original Nintendo games that were out. I saw Adventure of Link and bought it immediately for myself, lol. I want to get Metroid and the original Castlevania, too. The latter is famous in my house because it's one of the two games that my brother, the master, could never beat. I hope they've kept it the same so I have the same challenge ahead of me. The thing is, the other game he couldn't beat was Kirby's Pinball, and I've beaten that (cause I got really lucky once), so we'll have to see. Plus, my dad recalls it having really good music, but we can't remember how it goes, so I'd like to hear that. And Metroid just cause... well, I remember it too. Dr. Mario would be fun, as well as the original Mario and Donkey Kong, but they are twenty dollars. Compared to other games, this is cheap, but it's still fairly expensive. I also found the Fruits Basket boxed set and I REALLY want it, but it's $100, and I just don't have that kind of money to spend. Trigun boxed set it $200, so it'll be a while before I ever get that. Maybe I should look online or something...

I'm not too worried about gifts, though. My crappy idea will do, but I'd like to get more a least for my brother, themonkeymaiden (for putting up with me at home), and Christie (for putting up with me at school XD), and maybe even a few other people if I can think of anything extra outside of my idea... It's not even a very good one. Also, since my sister won't be home for Christmas, I am now in charge of selecting and running my family's recorder ensemble. themonkeymaiden, who's also in our group, had a good idea of adding parts to the duets we used to do for Madrigal. It's either that or Feliz Navidad, and I don't know if they'd like that at our Christmas Eve service... Although, she has now been upgraded to sopranino (if she wants) since my sister is gone! So it'll be sopranino, soprano, alto, and bass probably (yes, there are several kinds of recorders. Tenor is the only one we have that we probably won't use). Or make my brother play tenor and my mom can re-learn soprano, but I think her arthritis would make that too hard....

...Am I a terrible person for wanting to give more to my brother than to my sister?,
kaito: (Default)
*sniff sniff* Well, I just got back from strike. I'm so sad that Honk! is over!!! It was the best experience I've ever had on stage... Oh well. Auditions for the next show are after Thanksgiving, and who knows how that'll turn out... If I don't get in acting, I'll do tech anyways, but still... (although, the Honk! director is doing this next show and said "What makes you think you won't get in acting?" *shrugs* He tends to be overly nice though XD). I'm still very sad though... I mean, I'll see everyone (but the kids) again since I'm in other things with them, but I just feel so... empty.

Well, the votes are in! Nine audiences, nine different responses! And the winner of the Best Audience award is *drum roll, please*....


That's right! Our last audience stood out among the others not just in numbers, but in responsiveness (I just made up a word, didn't I?). In a very close second comes Thursday night, and after that is Opening night. Congratulations all of you, you tried very hard! ...Why did I even put this section in here?

Anyways, it was so nice to see my brother!!! I think he really liked it... XD. He seemed to be enjoying himself. David came, too, cause I think Rachel told him about it. I hadn't seen him in a while, so that was nice. I guess my brother can also come home for Christmas, so that makes me happy, too, cause we aren't always sure if he cane make it. My sister and brother-in-law (gak, I'm still not used to that...) SAY they can come, but we're not too sure ourselves cause that's when they're supposed to be on their Honeymoon... Whatever. Back to what I was talking about, he was telling us about his next show which is sort of an anime/samurai thing (and it's a sequel to a western.... o_O). It sounds so awesome! He apparently had to watch Samurai X for it, lol. So it's fun, especially cause I can talk to him about anime since he's seen a good amount of them (including Inuyasha). In fact, a few months ago he mentioned that he might base his role off of Sesshomaru. I dunno... I hope I can go see it, but I might be on choir tour and then have second semester... It depends on a lot, I guess. *looks at schedule* Hold your horses... I might be able to go!!! YAY!!!

*sigh* I'm so tired... Now it's time to start doing my school work again!!! XP Well, okay, I'll do that tomorrow... I'm gonna go to bed now... Or may just stare at stuff. Whatever.

kaito: (Default)
Well, Honk! starts tomorrow! Our last rehearsal just got over, and I must say, the show is looking great!!! I'm so excited! It's so much fun, and I'm sure the audiences will like it. Doing 9 performances in 8 days (with two of those off) seems like a lot, but I enjoy it so much! I'm also really happy that themonkeymaiden, Rachie-chan, AND my brother will be coming to see it! He's coming all the way from Chicago, and he's never seen me in anything! He'll be here next Saturday, though, the other two are coming tomorrow ^_^.

Ooo ooo ooo!!! More good news! I finally checked my college e mail, and the Improv group has two shows at the same time tomorrow. I mean, I go to rehearsals, but I've never been in a show. However, I GET TO BE IN THE SHOW ON THE MAINSTAGE TOMORROW NIGHT!!!! I'm so excited!!! It's my Improv premiere!!! I've been wanting to be in a show for so long (two months, but hey, that's longish!)! This one freshman has all ready done a show or two, and me and another guy are getting are first shots tomorrow! The one who's done it before is in my group, and the other kid goes to the coffee shop where they usually perform, but he and another guy will have to rush over there cause they're in Honk!, too. But the group leader understands (HE'S in Honk!, too!). I'm just so pumped!!!

I want to force Christie to take me out to get my fish tomorrow... She's being such a jerk lately! She usually knocks on my door to make sure I wake up in time for Religion, but recently, she's been doing it like five minutes before class!!! I explain to her that I turn off my alarm and go back to bed cause that's just how my mind works at that hour, but no!!! She's too busy with herself! I'm sorry, but you need to think of your friends education before how good you look. Gr... Too bad she's my ride everywhere, otherwise I'd tell her off...

Oh yeah! You remember that Sorry Everybody site? They keep reformatting, and my pic is now toward the bottom of 89. Actually, it was the very bottom the last I looked, but you never know when that'll change.

Oh well, things to do! My room looks like crap (still), and I should probably look at my homework since I've got the show this weekend... Later!

kaito: (Default)
So... wassup, ya'll? I'm tired and hyper at the same time (scary combination, let me tell you!).

Candyland sent me the FUNNIEST thing today! Of course, I emailed this to the only people who read my journal anyway all ready, but you never know! Go to Google, type in "Miserable Failure" as the search, and hit "I'm feeling lucky." If it doesn't leave you in stitches, I don't know what will...

I've started posting something on Fiction Press (everyone double takes). Yeah, I know, I'm an ff.net person, but I couldn't pass this up! I was all ready on the site anyway since I was there before the split. It's a bunch of stories we wrote in my family that I really like. The earlier ones aren't that great, but after a while there are some classics. It's at:


if you'd like to check it out!

First presidential debate was tonight... I only saw a tiny bit of Bush's final comments. I am SOOOOOO worried about this year's election. I'm glad I can vote, but I'm just afraid of how other people will cast theirs. I'm sick of trying to hide my political standings, even though I know that I'll get judged by others because of it.

If Bush gets reelected, we are screwed!!! There, I said it. I can't stand the man! He's done so many horrible things!!! I heard him speak live, and there was one point where if I could have, I would have slapped him right across the face. "Kerry wants to tax RICH people to fix the economy, can you believe that?!" Well, DUH!!! You're the ones with all the money, moron!!! And that war... He only did it so he could be remembered and to help his buddies in the oil industry. Me and many members of my family plan on wearing black arm bands if the worst happens and he is reelected. America will be dead if he is! Well, excuse me, the rich people will be fine. Those of us poorer people will lose even more money! My mother says that if he gets back in, we'll probably end up in the poor house, and I believe her! I don't know how well Kerry will handle office, but he can't be as bad as Bush. He just CAN'T!!! And I really like Edwards. He has some great view. I hate Cheney because he directly insulted my grandfather once. Seriously. He used to live a block away from my grandparents in Dallas, and one morning while my granddad was taking a walk, he passed Cheney's house and saw him standing outside. He said, "Good morning, Mr. Cheney." And then he just looked at him as if to say, "Why are YOU saying hello to ME?!" ...He's such a jerk! I loved Kerry's comment about him having been President since election day... It's so true! You look in Bush's eyes, and there's nothing going on behind them. You can see it! Why do people like him?! How could anyone want to vote for that hypocritical, lying jerk again?!

*sigh* I'm glad I got that off my chest. Feel free to send me the hate comments now.
