Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring...

Heh. Today was fun. I got together with Nick, and we had lunch at India Garden, then went to the new B&N, then hung out at my house for a while. Then we had dinner at El Campesino and returned to B&N, where Gen was getting off work, and then Julian was there too, so we talked for a while. Gen came up with the ingenious concept of the Oxford-English-Dictionary-on-a-stick as a weapon, and then Julian said, "Not enough people are beaten to death with the English language." Hee. Fun times. Must hang out with some of my local Alpha/Confluence/related friends while I'm still in the area. I'm in Murrysville for probably another 10 days. I could technically stay until the 18th, but I want to have some time at the writers' house before classes start so I can get books, talk to Nesset about the comp, buy groceries, see if my internet will work there now, help with any housemates moving, etc. Whoah, I just created an agenda for myself.

I got the Naruto game for GBA, only it's all in Japanese, so I'll need to hunt for translations so I know what I'm doing. Moving, jumping, and kicking are no problem, but I'm sure there's more to the game than that. Heh. It reminds me of the time Nick, Derek, and I were trying to figure out the Naruto fighting game on our own and finally had to ask Thom for help. And then Nick totally kicked ass even though he'd never played before and put my dear Chouji to shame. *sigh* Oh well.

I haven't read anyone's LJ entries since before I left for Hawaii, so I'm out of the loop. Either nothing interesting has happened or many exciting things have, like more people getting engaged or someone getting a new kitten or something. And a book I saw at B&N makes me want to knit teddy bears (or other animals). But I have a bajillion other projects I'm working on or plan to work on, so that will have to wait. Oh yeah, and I got the Bananaphone CD for my car. Raffi on CD seems weird. I always had the tapes. But they broke or got lost somewhere. *sigh* And while I was in the SF/F/manga/RPG section, some middle aged couple walked by, and the man announced loudly, "Role-Playing Games? Vampire? Ha! You'd have to be an idiot to play those kinds of games!" Of course, I cracked up at that one. Weeee, I guess half my friends are idiots then. Silly man. Isn't in touch with his inner geek.

Ok! I'm out.

I still have this good mood hangover (yes, I just made that term up) from yesterday. It's from both spending time with Nick and talking to Gen and Julian. Fun times. And now I'm going through friend entries. But I'm going through individual journals starting at the end of the alphabet and moving up. Right now I'm finishing up with the S people (reading Arien's, to be precise).

I had some dreams last night. In one, I was in a high school or something, and there was this blond girl named Valerie with the creepiest eyes. They were red and kind of like the Hypnotoad's (if you haven't seen that episode of Futurama, her eyes just did this weird thing where they constantly changed shape and kind of buzzed and stuff). She was really freaking me out, especially when I was wandering down a dark hallway and saw her standing there. Well, I only saw the top half of her face since it was dark. Just the top of her hair and those creepy eyes. It was terrifying for some reason. So I started running from her, and I ended up in this classroom with a teacher who could have been my 10th grade math teacher (what?!). We were trying to keep Valerie out for some reason. I don't know what was so horrible about the eye thing, and now that I'm awake, it's funny. When I thought she was gone, I went into the hallway and she was there and grabbed my arm. I totally freaked out and started lashing out, trying to get her away from me.

In another part of the dream, I was either with Alphans or other people from my college, and we were going to see this really famous rock band in New York or something. We were flying on this platform thing above the ocean, and I was standing on the edge, holding onto the chain rail thingy there. We were going fast, sometimes lower, sometimes rising. Then we approached the city, and it was very sci-fi-ish. There was a giant ring station thingy over the place where the concert was, and it was apparently visible from space. We were going to go down through the ring and land there. So we did, and the moment the platform landed, I just walked off it. I was somehow with my dad and sister, and as we walked though what was apparently the airport, I saw a girl I graduated with who also goes to my college (I've never really talked to her, though). I asked my dad how we were supposed to vote if we were in another state. Then some lady we were with had brought flowers, and my dad said she was just trying to get us to vote for Kerry and we shouldn't listen to her. Um... no idea what that was all about.

There were also dream-bits about something in Hawaii and then seeing a friend I haven't seen in years with her new family. But they weren't as interesting.

And now, for something completely different. I saw this in Zan's journal, so I must do it too. For I am a creepy closet living in her stalker who fish like smells. Hee. I amuse myself sometimes.

I ate at restaurants twice yesterday, and tonight my sis wants to eat out since my parents are having dinner next door and she doesn't want to stay here. Weeee.

My sis just got me to watch Eurotrip. Wow. Just... wow. The nude beach scene... so many dangly bits... And sometimes I wonder if, like Jenny, most of my guy friends consider me an honorary guy too. Heh.

Hmmm, nothing like marriage proposal ideas for story inspiration. I like the baby animal idea. If a guy gave me a kitten, of course I'd say yes. Diamonds may be forever, but kittens are more fun to play with. Remember that, guys. Engagement kittens. Unless she's allergic. Then... engagement turtle. Hee. I want an engagement turtle. Uh, someday. Not any time soon.
