chiaki_chan: Contemplative Chiaki (pic#165797)
I have socks that tell me the day of the week! No more checking the calendar when I can just check my feet! It might be slightly off the usual scale of aromatherapy and I will probably where Tuesday when its actually Saturday but still - I can make this work! Of course there are the days where I might wear Thursday on one foot and Monday on the other. But they are different colors, for instance today's sock is purple with yellow 'n blue stripes on the heel and toe so hopefully this wont happen. At lest not on purpose.

In other exciting news I've managed to update here and at my LJ account all on the same day (Hello imouto!!), go me. Wish I could use my theme on my LJ over here but I can't seem to get to the code. Stinky poo. Still I updated!

I'm not positive on what to write though, I'm mostly watching my hamster (I call him Frodo) hang from his cage like a acrobat. Ary-chan gets a ninja hamster, I get the former circus star. I believe he might also have an eating issue, its scary how fast he chows down on stuff. But he doesn't bite and he and Sookie (my cat) like each other. She doesn't want to eat him but she does keep a very close eye on him. When he got out of his ball and under the fridge she's the one who came and let me know. I lured him out from under the fridge with a glowstick. Still not certain how he got out of the ball in the first place.

I will soon be getting an iPod Touch! It's like third gen or something but I don't care. My best guy friend ever, his name is Ricky, is getting the sleek new version and I get his old one. He knows where all the stuff that go with it is so I've got a charger and everything. Very awesome.

I will also be switching cell companies soon and my Aunt has already been on my case about not handling more then I can afford....ugh I wish I knew how to handle her. Show her that I'm not the worthless, unintelligent little kid that she thinks I am. Course even her own Father calls her a bully, that she isn't into things outside her little sphere of interests, which of course doesn't include me I'm as far out there as you can get.

Ugh, I went off on a tangent. Anyway my friend Daphne wants me to go with T-Mobile but all I hear is that they have bad customer service, no signal, and they bill you twice in one month. Verizon is where everyone is telling me to go but they cost a lot and will also charge me twenty cents to send and receive messages from Jackie. Hmm, no I do not like that. I've looked at US Cellular and frankly haven't found much of a downside. All incoming calls are free with that company. Might be the best thing around really. Opinions and advice are welcome!

I best dash, I need to be up early for work. Hope all is well!

I'm exhausted.

I worked from 8am - 6:30pm two days in a row. Yes I got my hour break but I still feel forgotten by administration. But they get busy, it happens.

Being exhausted and very sore from lifting the kids all day for diapers though have weakened defenses and I apologize if I come off as rude to anyone. It's not intended.

Also fighting a strong case of "I'm the worst friend", going to combat it with sleep just like my battle with self loathing.

Tomorrow is Friday though so this is good. Got a lot of crochet work to do. Finish the baby blanket for my director, along with two bodies and a top hat for the skeletons, and I need to buy some tulle.

Anyone want to go shopping to a fabric store with me?

Pathetic

So apparently I have to make a toast for my friend Dawn's wedding because I'm the Maid of Honor. I don't do speeches outside of class, I just found out about this (she called me from Kuwait), and I'll flat out say I think its a bunch of bull. I've never been to a wedding where the Maid of Honor is the one making the speech, it's always the Best Man. I know I sound childish when I say I don't want to do it but I don't. Her Mother is throwing a hissy fit about my dress, I wont see Dawn again until the end of the month, and then wont see her again until the actual wedding. She doesn't have anyone to take my place and I know she'd do anything for me but...I can't do a speech.

Which brings me to the point of my entry. I am pathetic. I am failing at everything outside of work because I could do my job with my hands tied behind my back. Course then the room would be a disaster area and kids would be able to run away after doing something wrong and not worry about getting caught.

I'm craptacular at role playing and keeping up with the game, I'm a terrible friend because even though I've never met my online friends (who are some of my closest friends, shows you how lame I am) I'm like a kid and am attached to them. To the point where if they go off and leave me for long periods of times or they leave cryptic remarks about being upset I automatically think it's my fault. That I've fucked up in some way.

Stupid HFA.

My apartment is a disaster but I'm to tired to keep it clean, relationships are in tatters right now and not just ones involving my family, and my bank account is consistently in the red.

Gomen, I know it's a load of complaints but...well I had to get them out and I figured this be the best place to do it. I'll try and post some sort of actual content next time.

I haven't had to write an introductory post in awhile, they make me a bit nervous...I always come out sounding kind of geeky like its a bad personal ad. I'm very grateful that the people in my little circle thing already know me, course if they read my journal here and the one over at livejournal they are going to get so bored of my dull live! Heh, its worse then Chinese water torture! It's a bit odd to not be running around as Britin, I've used that name since 2003, though I like this one, just need to get some more Chiaki icons.

I've got an awesome DBSK layout which I love! I wish I could find a really good profile layout but I'm not sure where to look so I'll have to do some digging. If only my graphic skills were better and I'd make my own layout. Wouldn't mind something Chiaki, Arashi, or Hiro related. Oooh Gokusen would be so awesome!

So bored yet? Sorry I don't have anything exciting to talk about, my life is really rather dull. I get up, go to work, come home, mess around on the computer and watch Japanese dramas, then go to bed to do it all over again. Thrill a minute.

So now I'm just working on getting a cool layout and thinking of something to post over at X-Men Childhood's End as you have to post three times a week and I wont be around this weekend due to ACEN.

I've been a comic book fan for years, I originally got hooked on them cause I had a major case of hero worship with my cousin Perry... I was such a dork. Never mind...I'm still a dork! Lately though I've been getting a bit ticked at Marvel and DC because they keep screwing around with my favorite teams.

First it was Generation X when they brought in all those baseline students and killed of Synch. The whole thing with Monet I could deal with, it was kind of interesting, but I really didn't like Emma's sister... Ugh.

After that they screwed around with Young Justice and the Teen Titans and did this whole “Graduation Day” thing. I'll admit that I never really liked Cissie and Empress got on my nerves but I adored Impulse...a character who loves pushing buttons as much as I do...you just can't get better then that! And while I like having Kid Flash, Superboy, Wonder Girl, and Robin all part of the new Teen Titans I was upset to see YJ end. Not as upset as I was when they killed of Spoiler though...I loved Steph's relationship with Tim!

I'm not even going to get into the whole “House of M” stuff... Oii... It was the first time I ever wanted to strangle a comic character. I was a little flabbergasted that Marvel would blow up an entire bus full of children, even if they had been mutants originally. Then to have Jay's wings cut off on top of all that and make Sam feel so sad...I just wanted to hug both of them!

Gah...enough rambling, I'm not making sense to anyone but myself am I? Besides I'm not even sure anyone else who reads my journal even reads comics. I was just planning on writing a little bit about the new YA issue and I just wind up rambling...

I LOVE Young Avengers! I've only got a few problems with the entire thing. The first is that Marvel has plans to make it bi-monthly, it's already difficult enough to wait for the next month's issue...now after the entire Civil War thing I'm going to have wait two months before the next issue? Grr...argh... Also! It took way to long to get #11 in stores. The guy who runs the store I go to said it was several weeks behind.

Anyway...now that I have it in my hot little hands here is my poor excuse at review. Naturally its behind a cut because its the brand new issue.

Young Avengers #11: Family Matters Part III )

Enough of my ramblings. I'm off to mangle the motorcycle riders who frequent the bar next door. Why they feel it is important to rev their engines and create massive amounts of smoke at 11:15pm is beyond me. The people who cheer them on are just as annoying...

:: grumble ::

chiaki_chan: (Wiccan)
I'm constantly naming my pets after anime/manga characters, even comic and TV characters. So... I was thinking when I get a guinea pig again I'd like to name it Wiccan after one of my favorite Young Avengers characters... But is that a bad idea since some of my friends are Wiccan and I don't want them to take offense.... That's me...overly cautious and somewhat paranoid.

Oii.

Also! Does anyone know what order the stripes are in for the PoA and GoF sweaters for Hufflepuff? Is it yellow black yellow or is it black yellow black? For some reason this is really bugging me and all my reference photos have vanished.. *poof*

Things...

Yippie! It's April! That means only a few more weeks till ACEN, I can hardly wait!

:: gets all bouncy ::

I'm hoping that the pain really goes down so I can thourghly enjoy the weekend. Though with the way things have been going lately I just want the pain to be low enough for me to get through the day comfortably.

Anywho... Got the April issue of NewtypeUSA in the mail today. I'm not sure what's going on with the company. I've sent them the entire subscription amount back in October and have only recieved two issues to date, this months and December's. I've contact the company and they claim that the card I put it on was maxed out...which is impossible because the card that I used for the order is my debit/credit card which draws money directly from my bank account. To top it all off a few weeks ago they sent me a bill for $189 and a handful of change. Oii...

In other news, though the progress is slow I am seeing progress as far as learning Japanese is going. I can now ask my Dad where is the cat and then point the cat out and say there it is. I can also count to 10 and a few other numbers, and can answer questions in a crossword without looking in the book (I photocopied the crossword for more practice). All in all I say that's a pretty darn good thing. I was quite pleased with myself when I went the Mitsuwa the other day and recognized some of the words that were spoken and not because I'd learned them off an anime. What I'd really like though is a personal tutor. When I get a class situation I just clam up and don't say anything because I get to scared.

Gotta run...think I'll take a warm bath to relax the muscles before bed.

I went to the bookstore on Sunday evening after dinner with Daphne and Dawn, not really sure what I was looking for so I looked in a few sections. When I was in the manga section I picked up the newest volume of Tokyo Girls & Boys, I love that manga sooo much....I think I like it more than Hot Gimmick! I also found a manga that is really a book to teach you how to write kanji and I grabbed it to thinking that I'd get it. Then I tried to find some books on RSD but they didn't have any, which surprised me because they have books on other virtually unknown health issues... Dorks. They did have the newest Meg Cabot book though, “Avalon High”, so I was very happy to snag a copy. I love Meg Cabot!

The little manga book gave me an idea though. I made some extra money working for Dad's girlfriend over the weekend, So why not spend a little getting something to help me learn how to speak Japanese? I never did wind up with the little manga but I got a book that is titled “Japanese in 10 minutes a day”. It's set up in little lessons with stickers, flash cards, quizes, and word puzzles like crosswords to help you study. Right now I'm working on things around the house like the telephone, curtian, and chair as well as reviewing the key question words. There are also three words, kono, sono, and ano, which I'm trying to memorize which goes with which meaning.

Keep your fingers crossed y'all. So far I've been able to go to work and point out to the kids that the chair their sitting in is 'isu' (according to the book) and I learned that word last night. I guess it helps to repeat it every time you see the sticker.

Ah well, that was my interesting Sunday night. I better get to bed, gotta work at 8am tomorrow!





What type of Fae are you?

I love taking pictures with my camera so I just had to do this meme. I really hope I get tons of comments!

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you`re interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favourite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as a diary entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you`re remotely interested in it.

I'm in the process of changing a few things on my journal. Most obvious is the layout. I can't do it edit all the info without being able to see it on the actual page which is why this has someone elses specifics on it. Just...um...enjoy for now.

Also if you'd like an adorable layout like this one check out the Anime Layouts community. You can find a link on my user info page. You'll find nice layouts, fun people, and talented people as well.

I saw this link on my [livejournal.com profile] mippa's journal... It's perfect! I've been feeling really crummy lately and this really helped to perk me up. However I'm to busy getting ready for work right now so you'll have to click on the link to find out what it is. But it's worth it!

Yes I realize its a quick fix but come on who can't crack up in laughter and almost fall out of their chair when Rangers start to dance around with magic wands? I absolutely adore Magiranger but every time I see the ending I can't help but laugh. Now what I really want is more episodes of Dekaranger and the theme song. [livejournal.com profile] mippa you wouldn't by chance know where I could find them would you?

Gah...I've been away to long at lest it seems that way. I'll write more later but there are some more important things to take care of first.

Such as...

The fact that my good friend Melissa is having a birthday tomorrow! I hope the day is absolutlely wonderful for you! Despite having to work. Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] mippa!

Also...

[livejournal.com profile] fairy_wench, thank you a million times for that very cute rose on my user info page. It was so sweet and thoughtful! I tried to call you to wish you a happy valentines day but your cell number in my phone book must be wrong cause I called it and got a hold of a hispanic couple. Strangness...

And a note to both of you... I DO have extremely late Christmas gifts for both of you. I just have to mail them out. So.... I have to dig up Wren's addie and I'll need your new one Mippa. Pretty pretty please?

Ego Boost

chiaki_chan: (Lemon Puff!)
Just a quick post before I head to bed. My Aunt Jean and Uncle Jeff are visiting so I need to get plenty of sleep so I can be alert tomorrow. Jean...is a handful. You'd think that after dealing with all the difficult kids at work I could handle an Aunt. But when their your own family and act like a school age bully. :: sighs ::

Anyway... I just got off the phone with my Dad to say goodnight and he told me that Colin (my brother for those that don't know, his girlfriend Meg, and Meg's roommate Lisa were over at Dad's having pizza with the relatives. Meg wore the scarf I recently made for her and he thinks its beautiful. Now naturally a Dad has to say this...its like in their contract or something. :P But according to Dad, Meg has been wearing the scarf quite a bit and several people want me to make scarves for them.

The ego boost couldn't have come at a better time... Especially since I'm going to have to be dealing with my Aunt this weekend and I'm feeling frustrated with coworkers, the lack of heat in my apartment's bathroom, the strange smell in the bathroom, and my own knitting skills.

Ah...here's to the weekend. Is it Monday yet?
chiaki_chan: (Things to do...)
It’s been ages since I’ve written a real entry. Anyone miss me? I was out of it for awhile due to a rather severe flare up of my RSD, it was the worst one I’ve had since I was first diagnosed almost eleven years ago and I was tempted to ask Dad to take me to the hospital since I couldn’t stand or walk or really even move by myself. But what are they going to do except pump me full of pain meds? I try to only take pain medication for my migraines and do physical therapy and other non-med routes for my RSD. I feel I put enough toxicants into my body…I don’t need to add to it.

Anywho…enough rambling… This entry is mostly for [livejournal.com profile] autumnal_hedge since I really want to see what she thinks (aside from the fact that I’m nutters since we all know that already) but mostly cause it took place at her house… Well kind of.

Dreams... )

Okay...so I was looking on ebay to see if they had anything that would help me for my search for a costume for Acen... I've discovered a large collection of Naruto things but nothing from Pretear or Fruits Basket, the two series I'm hoping to have a costume from... I also found a large selection of Wallace and Gromit figures that look like they came from a twenty-five cent machine while looking under anime cosplay. Someone tell me what they have to do with either of the terms?
