windandwater: (THIS is Sparta!)
Original:

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, "It's better than yours"
Damn right, it's better than yours
I could teach you, but I'd have to charge.

Old English:

Mine milkshake bring all yon gentlefolk to mine yard
and lo they reply, "'Tis better than thine...
"Verily, 'tis better than thine!"
I could apprentice thee, but I wouldst levy a fee.

Literal:

My whipped iced dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/or employment,
and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours.
Absolutely, it far surpasses yours.
I could convey to you the proverbial recipe, but I would have to demand compensation.

Limerick:

Through stereophonic tubes
Comes a girl rapping mixes and grooves
and though you would think
Her topic was iced drink
It's really all about her boobs.

Haiku:

Boys, drawn to my yard
Their words in chorus singing
Your milkshake loses

Heero actually sighed and looked over at the clock on the wall. "Look, Duo," he said, a sharp note of impatience in his voice. "This has been going on too long. I should have had you on your back and begging to come ten minutes ago. Maybe if this was a multipart, we could indulge in your psychotic fantasies. But this is a oneshot. So get over here, start crying, and let me get you naked!"

I think this is the best paragraph that I have ever written.

... I'm going to bed now. Really.

Okay. So. I've been watching MTV recently because I got caught up with this season of America's Best Dance Crew. Hush. I think the teams are really talented and I'm very torn between Iconic Boys and I Am Me at the moment, who will be going head-to-head in the finals.

ANYWAY.

Because I've been watching ABDC, I've been unfortunately treated to repetitive MTV commercials pimping out their new shows (when I don't change the channel to Food Network or something that is). And one of MTV's new shows is something titled, I shit you not, Teen Wolf.

I GIVE YOU THREE GUESS WHAT THIS SHOW IS ABOUT AND THE FIRST TWO DON'T COUNT.

So, yeah. Shitty new teen/young adult show meant to snag onto the whole Twatlight/vampire craze that's currently popular, except this time it's Twatlight with werewolves. Even from the commercials this show looks terrible, in ways that make someone who likes classic horror/vampire/werewolves (me!) want to rage.

Premise of the show is that teenage boy gets infected by werewolf and now has to deal with it. Enter pretty new classmate, who he is very attracted to, but OHNOES every time he's around her he gets all wolfy and doesn't want to inflict his curse on anyone else. How do I dislike this show? Let me count the ways.

1) The new girl's name is Bella Swan Allison Argent. Argent. ARGENT. THE WEREWOLF BOY IS ATTRACTED TO A GIRL NAMED ARGENT. *froths at the mouth*

... for those too lazy to wiki, argent means "silver". >_>;;

2) Werewolf boy gets 'wolfy' when his blood pressure rises, or he gets angry/excited/upset/emotional/whatever.

WHAT. HE IS A TEENAGE BOY. IS HE GOING TO GET WOLFY EVERY TIME HE POPS A BONER. THIS WOULD BE HILARIOUS IN A TRAGIC WAY.

3) It reeks of Twatlight. 'nuff said.

4) I don't know if there's going to be classic turns at the full moon wolfy stuff, but it does look like werewolves are pretty feral killing machines. That's one plus, but it doesn't forgive all the other horrible things.

5) I have no fifth point. Except that maybe people need to start being original and not riding the wave of current popularity. But if you're going to ride that wave, at least do something different.

AND COME UP WITH A BETTER FUCKING TITLE THAN 'TEEN WOLF.' THAT WAS AN 80s FILM.


....................... *goes away to chew on things*


EDIT...

IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

I just saw a new commercial and guess what? Guess what?! That silver girl? HER DAD IS TOTALLY A WEREWOLF HUNTER. I guess the name 'Argent' becomes suddenly relevant.

But still stupid.

In case anyone was worried, I was not, in fact, Raptured out.

Is anyone surprised?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

So, here I am in the library and I have just noticed that a man has brought a computer into the library and is availing himself of the free wireless like I am.

Note: I did not say he brought his laptop. He has brought his computer.

Next to him are the empty boxes of what looks like a new Acer computer. The Acer computer that he is currently using. It has a tower and flatscreen monitor, keyboard and mouse, and he's checking his email on Yahoo. I know this because his monitor is nice and bright and large.

... I have to say that seeing someone bring in their whole computer to the library is definitely something I haven't seen before.

Dropped by the mall today on the way home to pick up a freebie bag from Godiva (rewards club perk~) and managed to snag a free Red Velvet Cake truffle, and the free panty from Victoria's Secret (another rewards club perk, I love free things). While I was window shopping, I walked by Macy's and happened to notice some very... colorful standees in front of the makeup counter by the entrance, advertising something or another. They were drawn in "life-size" anime-ish style. And I had to do a double take, because first thing I thought when I saw the standees was:

Why are they using Bridget to advertise perfume? I mean, I know Bridget is cute, but also a trap. Possibly not the best way to advertise a legitimate product not related to the Guilty Gear games.

I was a bit boggled, but kept walking. However, at the food court, I was accosted by more of the standees and a lady passing out flyers. I then found out that, no, they're not representations of Bridget, but of Paris Hilton, to advertise her new fragrance line. I guess she's trying to the Gwen Stefani Harajuku thing except five years late.

Somehow, I'd be more impressed if it was actually Bridget.

Had a mildly traumatic incident occur yesterday afternoon. D:

First, the background.

Behind my house (well, backyard) is a kind of alley between this housing subdivision and the one on the next street (yay suburbia). It's made up of the backyard fences of both subdivisions, and the openings are closed off by tall chainlink fencing (the subdivisions run between two fairly busy streets). Now, the alley area is fenced off because there's power lines that run the length of the alley, and the alley itself is mainly used by the electric company trucks, when they service the lines and stuff. So there's really nothing in the alley except dirt and weeds, not even trash, because the property owners who live against the alley have the keep their bit of it clean and debris-free so the company trucks have clear access (or else we get a fine or something).

But because this alley is so convenient and between two major streets, lots of the kids from the high school down the street use it as a shortcut through the subdivisions. I mean, why walk all the way around the blocks to get home, when you can just duck through the alley and hop your own backyard fence? So, there's foot traffic in the alley, though not as much as you'd think. It's not a major thoroughfare or anything (what with those chainlink fences and all).

Anyway, yesterday afternoon after my mom came home, she went up to her bedroom to change and watch TV, etc. The master bedroom in our house has a big window that -- ta-dah -- overlooks the backyard and the alley. I was in the computer room doing my internet things, when I suddenly hear my mom shout:

"DID HE JUST DUMP A BODY IN THE ALLEYWAY?!"

Now, my mom's TV was on, so at first I thought she was just talking to the TV. You know, like when you yell at people in horror movies for being stupid and getting axe-murdered. But my mom is still squawking, so I get up and go to her room to see what the fuss is about. I look out the open blinds (normally they're closed because of the heat) and there is a body in the alley.

I freak out and my mom freaks out, so we're there freaking out together. It looks like a teenage boy and he's all curled up like he's asleep but very limp and to me it looks like his pants have been pulled down (or else he's doing that stupid sagging thing where you can see a boy's boxers). But I don't see any blood or anything like that. I think that maybe he was jumped and beaten up or something.

We get my dad upstairs to look and eventually I get out from my mom that she saw some other guy leave this boy in the alley. So we're all freaking out and my dad goes to call the police about what's going on. I'm rushing about and my mom says some other guy has come to check on the guy in the alley, and apparently he's not dead! Just very limp. And high. Or drunk. Maybe both. The guy tries to get him up, leaves him there and goes away. Eventually he comes back, with some girl and they both manage to heave the limp guy up and drag him through the alley.

I tell my dad this while he's on the phone with the cops, and the Dispatcher says she's sending police over right away. I suppose it helps that we were very specific. The people were headed towards the street the school is on, and it was just after 3 PM, which meant there was a lot of traffic in the area because of the school.

They were super fast though, since not even two minutes after we hung up the phone, we could hear the police sirens and such. I didn't see what happened though. My dad was even looking over our back fence after to check the area (no blood or anything like that), and the guy who dragged the limp guy showed up again. My dad had the balls to ask what was going on, and the guy said the limp guy was drunk.

Teenage boy drunk at 3 PM on a Wednesday afternoon. Uh huh.

Anyway, I heard police sirens pretty frequently that afternoon, so I have no idea what really happened. But I'm really glad the guy wasn't dead. And the police didn't come over to take our statements or anything, so it must not have been anything major. Still, it was frightening while it was occurring.

Whew.

An ice cream truck just went by.

The song it was playing was the theme from A Love Story. WTF. I don't want to hear the theme from A Love Story playing in tinkling ice cream truck music. It's depressing!
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
So today is/was The Day You Show Everyone That You're Catholic Ash Wednesday. I went to Mass at 4pm -- thought it was at 5:30, since that's what dad said, but I checked the website and it was at 4... then 6:30 for bilingual mass -- like a good Catholic ( >_>;; ) and so I wouldn't have to listen to my parents bitch at me about not being religious enough. *gag* Note: neither of them went to mass today, unless my mom went this morning before work, but she doesn't have a smudged forehead so I'm guessing not. They're hypocrites.

Anyway, I found it strange that many more people stood up to get the ashes than went to get communion. Like, twice as many. See, the priests figured it out that if they give out the ashes before communion, everyone leaves. So they did the ashes after communion. That's right, bitches, you have to sit here for the whole hour of mass before you get the black stuff on your forehead. And fuck the people who think they can walk in, get anointed and walk out.

If you want to wear the Proof Of Catholicism ash, you have to attend the mass!

Back to the point I was trying to make.

If you're going to sit through the whole mass, including the homily, why don't you just freaking get communion, too? You have to wait and wait while everyone else gets theirs, so it's not like you're doing anything in the meantime. Seriously, the lobby was packed full of people who stood for over 30 minutes (if not the full hour), because they didn't seem to want to actually attend the mass, but just get the ashes.

*facepalm*

You just listened to the whole thing! There's speakers in the lobby that let you hear the mass. If you came in, you could've had a nice seat and balanced your checkbooks or something instead of standing like a lump during the super-long homily. By the way, I think the priest did that on purpose. Today's all about penance and fasting and stuff.

Bleh.

At least I had a super comfy seat.

And suddenly! Thunder and lightning! And really fierce wind! And it's over 100 degrees outside and CA is on fire.

>_>;;

There's no rain either yet. Unless it's gonna suddenly hail or something like it did last year, but I'm doubtful. However, heading thunder and seeing lightning and the yellowish-gray clouds (whoo smoke) is pretty scary by itself.

;o;

... also, when the first boom of thunder shook everything, I could hear all the kids at the high school nearby scream. It's the end of the schoolday for them, so they were all probably leaving campus and walking home/lingering out on the sidewalk like they normally do. Damn, they're loud.
windandwater: (Ritsuka is not amused)
It is now 78 degrees, cloudy, and there's a chilly wind blowing. The low will be 48 degrees. Last night, it was 90 degrees until 10pm at night, and I have the AIM transcript to prove it.

............... I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS BUT IT'S NOT BOILING HOT ANYMORE SO IT'S OKAY.
windandwater: (Yami says STFU)
Someone please tell me if I'm missing something here.

I'll be the first to admit that sometimes I'm slow, or don't get things that are immediately obvious. Like at Disneyland, when I didn't understand why Pet wouldn't let me have a caramel apple for a midnight snack (and I still don't). But this is... bwah? WHAT AM I NOT GETTING? Or is it... not me?

windandwater: (ORO?! / anime_babygirl)
Someone tell me what day it is.

Because I just saw a bunch of people camped out in front of Best Buy. They had a tent-thing and camper chairs. Yeah, it seemed like a bunch of teenagers/college students, but there were two older guys in the line behind them with their own chairs, and they weren't with the teen group.

D:

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS BULLSHITTERY. THIS IS NOT A STAR WARS PREMIERE.
windandwater: (Maria Por Que)
Please PLEASE tell me that I'm not the only one creeped out by this.

For the clickphobic (or lazy), LifeGem will make diamonds out of the cremated ashes of your loved ones for a large fee. *flails* I know diamonds are nice, but I don't want someone to be like:

"Oh, that's a beautiful diamond ring."
"Thanks! It's made out of my grandpa!"

... though, I suppose it would be a conversation starter.

I still think the prices are ridiculous though. I know it's mostly about the process, and keeping a loved one close (*ick*), but you can get a one-carat diamond in a nice setting for much cheaper than these prices. :/

Adopt one today!

My egg says hello.

Some guy just randomly asked me if I was Japanese. WTF.

I've been at the library all day, to help explain. No strange many just looked in my window or anything. Also explains why I've been uncommonly spammy.

EDIT...

The library PA system just announced that they'd be having a Wii Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournament in the Teens Section. That's kinda awesome.

OVERCAST.

THUNDER.

COLD WIND.

WTF WEATHER. IT WAS LIKE 100 DEGREES YESTERDAY AND NOW THERE'S A FREAKING COLD STORM. I JUST WASHED AND PACKED AWAY MY HEAVY COMFORTER AGAIN. FUCK YOU.


EDIT...

AND NOW IT'S RAINING HARD. FUCK YOU WEATHER. FUCK YOU.

EDIT IS FREAKING OUT...

THAT'S NOT RAIN. IT'S HAIL.

EDIT IS SCARED...

It's been hailing for... 20 minutes now and not stopping. The streets are literally white from the hail, along with roofs, and the thunder and lightning keeps coming too.

EDIT BRINGS PROOF...

Picture taken while it was still hailing. ^^ Used my cameraphone from my bedroom window, so the pic's not very good, but you can see how white everything is. That's all hail.

Why am I suddenly getting emails from tkmaxwell, and why does she want me to visit some website to buy electronics?

:/ Not that I wouldn't mind emails, but it wasn't about GW and suspicious bunny is suspicious. Anyone else get this email, because I recognized some of those addresses on the CC.
windandwater: (Do Not Anger the Gods)

On the converse, it may prove that God exists but has a horrible sense of humor.

This might be better. Or worse. Or something horrible.

Mrrrr... just woke up a ittle bit ago. =___=;; Yes, I'm somewhat on the lazy side. But I didn't go to bed until 3am. I've been having problems sleeping lately. I really need to get my sleep schedule changed, since my being practically nocturnal seems to disturb my parents. XP

Also still feel in a writing mood. I wanted to write something smutty for 1x2x1 Day, which was yesterday, but got caught up in writing my GaaNaruNejiSasu. But now I have an idea that is less smutty and more domestic and involves laundry. WTF. Heero? Duo? Stop being so goddamn domestic. But if the bunny stays with me, I might work on it.

Or write something else. I have a ton of drabble requests to fill. ^^;;

... oh, and I woke up with "Major Tom" going through my head. I have no idea why. I don't even HAVE that song in mp3 or anything. Weirdness.

Go ahead. Look at that auction. And boggle. Wanna know what it is first? Okay. A man is auctioning himself off to be a father. Seriously. He doesn't want to get married, but he does want kids.

... yeah. And next I'll be bidding on some grilled cheese with the Virgin Mary on it.


EDIT...

Aww... eBay took the auction down. ;__; So go here instead! This is where I found the link in the first place. The guy has a website. =D;;
windandwater: (Sasuke DDR)
This is the fucking funniest thing ever. I knew about the "ninja in the night" thing, but I didn't see this Naruto parody of it. Totally worth it to see Sasuke singing... and sharing a duet with Naruto. ♥

And then I surfed the site more and found this little gem dedicated to the men of Konoha. Ahahahaha~!

For something more serious, this is a FUCKING AWESOME AMV. Seriously. I watched it more than once. I loved Naruto going Kyuubi and it looks like there more of a backstory in it. From the video, it looks like Naruto, Sasuke and Haku are a team/friends... and Haku goes bad. It's FUCKING AWESOME. I can't repeat that enough. And keep watching until the end! The video looks like it ends twice, but goes actually goes on. Very great, well-timed, good music, and the beginning is... wow.

Then, of course, The Obligatory Austin Powers Spoof. *gigglesnarf* I nearly choked because I'm trying not to laugh out loud and wake my mom. XD! Neji has the most inappropriate line EVER. It's HILARIOUS.

The 12th Naruto ED proves that the animators have LOST THEIR FREAKING MINDS. Oh, and they're furries, too. [Insert Yiffing joke here.]

AND OMG. Little Tortilla Boy! The Naruto version! XDDDD! I love that standup act. Damn, the icon I have isn't up. ♥ Oh, Sasuke... we love you, even if you have a bad accent.

That's it for the pimping. For now. *^^*


EDIT...

Wait. I lied. One more. Have a Lord of the Rings parody trailer. It's actually pretty good. Just ignore the subtitles at the bottom. Neji is Legolas. *giggles* ♥


EDIT IS LATE AND IS TIRED...

FUCKING. COOL. The techniques of five of the boys; Sasuke, Neji, Lee, Gaara, and Naruto. With techno music. Hee~!
windandwater: (duo tease / koyuunos_icons)
Holy crap.

I mean. I'm just. THEY SELL THIS STUFF? For REAL? This is sorta funny, in an utterly brain-breaking way. Though, I did have a fun time plugging in Heero and Duo's names into the sample thinger, just to see what the actual writing on the inside of the book was like. ZOMG. Purple prose FTW!

*giggles* Too bad this is so unashamedly heterosexual. They've rehashed every single bad plot ever in every cliche genre; the summaries seriously read like Harlequin novels. XD;; I would be embarrassed to actually have a personalized book like this on my shelves. I mean, what if you break up? Or you could just be a creepy stalker. *sporfle* Or you could be like me and stick male names in. The feisty Lady Duo indeed!


EDIT...

Okay, I'm weak. And I just HAD to share what I got when I stuck Heero and Duo's names in. XD! So here's the excerpts from the book thinger. But Duo and Quatre have become women... because this book (and the others) are JUST THAT HET. Genderswitching! Yay! And bad prose!

I wish I was making this up... )
