I'm skipping the big LARP thing and the trip to see the SOFA show in Chicago in order to go to Erik's (very belated) birthday party. Although I'd really like to see the SOFA show, I do want to see Erik before he heads off to Russia for ages and forgets us entirely/I forget what he looks like. XP
I just realized that my film paper is due in a couple of weeks. I really need to be able to drive for some of these assignments that I'm getting ... it's difficult enough coordinating schedules with people when they're obligated to go, but when I'm asking a favor ... it's damn near impossible. XP I've made no headway on the roadkill project other than purchasing film, and although I bet I could write a three/four page paper on "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" based on reviews and my memories, I'd rather see it again just to make sure. But do any of my friends have time to go? NO! lol. They don't willfully procrastinate as much as I do. XD
I get the feeling that my roommate is angry with me, or at least annoyed. We haven't said a word to each other today. Maybe I should clean ...? No, wait, she's being snappish with her boyfriend on the phone ... I think I should just stay quiet, because things that are out of my control seem to be contributing to her mood.
nyxdae, I actually attended the recital for reasons other than whim this afternoon, but who am I to admit that vocally? XP As I said, my classes were canceled today due to the Senior Reviews, so I had an unprecedented chance to go to one ... and I went as per leohart8383's suggestion ... but alas, the certain individual I was hoping to see did not show up today. XP I even wore cool socks ... ;_; I should probably give up the ghost before I lose track of myself. I know nothing about him, and I do not know whether he's actually available or not. XP
Sometimes I want to say to some people - you admit to willfully deluding yourself in some respects, but your pride is another delusion - this choice of yours doesn't make you unique.
I went to Walmart with Stacey again last night ... apparently I have taken Christy's place as her crutch, which is both a good and a bad thing to me. Although I am glad that she considers me a friend and a support, I don't want to be a crutch, nor be considered a replacement. She also made some comment last night about how she knew me, and immediately I thought to myself, "you know me? You don't know me!" All we do is go to Walmart on occasion and see each other at club meetings. You don't see beyond what I present to you, and you interpret it in ways that are sometimes rather far from the truth. I wonder if you really want to get to know me ...? Things are very convenient the way they are now, I'll admit. I'm fun to be around, and there's no emotional baggage that binds you to me. You can get your people fix, and I ask for nothing in return.
I don't feel connected to her.
She is a fun friend, but not a true friend in the sense of one who knows me, or wishes come along on my journey to discover more. Those are hard and very rare to come by, it seems.
Fortunately, I don't seem to run into Tonberries as much in FFIX as I did in FFVII, with the exception of FFVII's battle arena ... XP At least I know now to run when they show up, unless I outnumber them by one. Then, although there will be death aplenty, I won't be annihiliated.
I'm broke. I've gotta stop frequenting the synth shops ... they really take it out of your pocket! But the weapons are so shiny ... *_*; This is amusing. I'm usually such a spendthrift in video games (in LoZ, I won't be caught dead in shops!) ... but suddenly in FFIX, I've developed a habit of keeping as many Hi-Potions on me as possible "just in case," and if I don't know what it does, I buy one.
[Edit - forgot to mention ... I am vastly amused by the name the Black Mages decided to give to their baby chocobo. "Bobby Corwen." It's really great. I love the Black Mages ...]
I'm beginning to feel a bit more sympathy towards Kuja, and I'm sitting here figuring out similarities between him and Sephiroth. I think one reason why I prefer Sephiroth over Kuja is that although they are both silver-haired villains with a need to be remembered, Sephiroth doesn't do as much "HA HA HA HA ..."ing as Kuja does. XP
While watching the movie in which Trance-formed Kuja destroys Bran Bal (sounds like a cereal ...), I wished that I could find a site or someplace with movies of the movies in these games ... o.o They're so gorgeous ... I want to make icons out of them and shower them with love. XD
I played a bit of Final Fantasy X with nyxdae today, and as usual with Final Fantasy games, I wound up having a great time. Lulu seems visually out of place to me right now, though ... everything's so bright and tropical, and then here she is dressed in dark colors and furs. Isn't she burning up in that outfit? o.O
How does Tidus breathe underwater? Are blitzball players genetically modified or something? Or, coming from a line of famous blitzball people (or his father, at least), has he evolved to have gills? o_O
Dude - Huh? Oh, you want the binoculars?
Tidus - Yes.
Dude - No way! Remember what you did last time??
Sakaki - Aww!
::Tidus kicks box, gets a potion from it::
Sakaki - Awesome!
::Tidus does it again and gets a potion ... and again ... and again!::
Everyone - ::highly amused::
I think we stole the gifts Yuna was intending to give to the temples on her pilgrimage, but we swear anyway that the kick-the-box-get-a-potion is the best thing about FFX thus far.
It's not fair that you don't get a roommate, when I am constantly told that there is no other option for me (particularly because of the size of my room ... and guess what? Yours is the same size as mine!), and I am always assigned one if mine drops out (and never told about who I've been assigned). XP ::stops ranting::
