Oh football, how I missed you

So the first preseason game of the '09 football season was last night. I watched most of it, but I guess I came in too late and missed this (the best angle is the one from the back, at the end of the clip):


LOL WTF IS THIS SHIT? I love trick plays. Also day-yum, that kid is fast.

I haven't posted in forever...

Sorry for my recent LJ absence ^^; There's just been so much going on. I've still got a ton to do in terms of applying for jobs and stuff. Blegh.

In any case, I'm a graduate and done with school now :D Which means the boring part of my life has officially begun.

But what I actually want to do right now is squee XD

Movies:
To boldy split infinitives where no one has before.Collapse )

Night at the Smithsonian!Collapse )

And lastly, we have some photos I’ve been meaning to post for like a month now ^^;

Adventures with Amigurumi!Collapse )

So anyway that’s what I’ve been up to 8D

EDIT: One more quick link, because I love schadefreude and T.O. is a grade-A douchebag.

Happy Easter!

Came home for the weekend, got a haircut, did some shopping, but mostly I messed about on the internets :3

Found a hilarious Death Note comic while cruising TV Tropes XD;; Light could probably have won if he had taken this approach, I bet.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I hope this book does well so we can look forward to The Ninjas of Wuthering Heights or Emma vs. Aliens. I kind of want to read it, but at the same time I am a little afraid.

Lastly, and most cool:

The Washington Post just published the winners of their 3rd annual Peeps diorama contest. A lot of them are DC-themed, which makes me happy. My personal favorites are 4, 15, 17, 19, 30 (GODDAMN TOURISTS), and 37. My mother's co-worker made 28, which is also awesome.

:(

I didn't get into JET. I was kind of expecting it with how badly my interview went a few months ago. There's always next year, I suppose, but it would have been much more convenient to get in this year. My current roommate's going to be studying in Japan next year, so it would have been cool to meet up every once in a while and hang out.

Now I need to figure out for real what I'm going to do next year :/

Today is a Campus Open House day, which means we get overrun by high schoolers thinking about coming here. The Language House is also trying to impress prospective students, and it was apparently our apartment's turn to host the visitors and their parents. In order to show them authentically how we live everyday we spent a big chunk of yesterday making the apartment cleaner than it's been all year.

Also campus is super crowded, which is annoying >:(

"Defenestrate" is my new favorite word. It's even funnier when you know the root (Everything I Need to Know About Latin I Learned from Dinosaurs 8D )

Went to the Maryland women's basketball game today, which they of course won because they're made of awesome. I like sporting events. It's nice to have a venue where you're allowed to scream your head off and no one cares. Where screaming your head off is encouraged, even.

In any case, we're in the Sweet Sixteen, baby! Also Duke apparently lost their game, which is always good.

Blargh, sorry if I'm a bit incoherent x.x I barely slept at all last night and I've spent the last few hours rotting my brain on FFR and F_W ^^;

Hmph

Here is what I missed last week because I was too busy being lazy:
3/14 - Happy Pi Day! Also happy birthday Albert Einstein.
3/15 - BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH.
3/16 - Happy half-birthday to me X3
3/17 - KISS ME, I'M IRISH Also happy 16th birthday to my cousin (16??? I remember when she was born ;laskduyfiuasudhfk I'm old ._. )


I had some interesting links to share with the group, but then Firefox crapped out on me and I lost the tabs ._. I'm sure I could find them again, but it's much too late and I'm much too lazy.

Woman in the Dunes is pretty much the worst book ever. Not to say that the writing is bad, or anything, but it's just not about anything I want to read about. I have to read it for my Japanese lit class, which might have been great because it was also assigned for the lower level Japanese lit class I took two years ago, except I didn't actually read it for that class either. Also this is not the sort of class where you can fake it, unlike the other one.

Spring break was last week. I spent pretty much the whole time fending off my mother, watching sports with my dad, sleeping, and lounging about. It was the BEST THING EVER.

Also I finished watching Kiva, because I told myself I couldn't start watching Decade until I had ^^; (Thirty episodes and a movie in three days! I FAIL!) The ending was SO EPIC. I was laughing for like twenty minutes. Then I watched the last scene again and laughed for another ten. The movie was pretty fun, too (play "Count the Den-O references" when you watch it. I got five at least. "Ore? Sanjou" was my favorite XDD ) It reminded me why I liked Kamen Rider so much, and also made me a little nostalgic for Den-O. I went and watched clips from the Deka movie (Momo!Wataru and Ura!Yuuto will never not be funny) and the first half of the Imagin anime after that (I think I could feel my brain melting out my ears as I watched it. For some reason Ryuutaros and his elephant cracked me up. "Yay, it's the same size again!" probably because I was watching it at like 4 am). The third (!!) Den-O movie is coming out on DVD sometime next month, but I'm guessing Sato Takeru's not going to be in it much since he's kind of got better things to be doing now ^^;

Still haven't started Decade, though :/


I have tickets to the women's NCAA tournament game tomorrow XDDDD GO MARYLAND! TURTLE POWER!
