Ratatouille was AWESOME! Seeing the movie made me laugh so much and a lot of stress just flew out the window :D Wonderful wonderful movie, and the short before it was also hilarious. The reviews I read of it saying it wasn't as good as some others were total crap. They likened it to Cars, which admittedly I originally didn't really care about seeing, but I liked. Cars still is probably my least favorite (still loved it though), but Ratatouille might be my favorite Pixar movie ever.

I also got to see it with Kate which was awesome :D haven't seen her in a million years. I felt bad because I had to split really fast (our train was coming as we were saying bye and didn't want to wait 15 minutes for the next one) but still :) very fun

Work is going really well, and it is my birthday today and so far my birthday has been awesome :)

I also wrote this a long time ago and forgot to post it! About to go out to dinner with Chris, I think we are going to try this really nice (but expensive looking) Japanese place. I hope it isn't crowded :X

I haven't posted anything in a while so I figure I may as well. It's a mix of a tiny bit of WoW stuff but mostly real life stuff.

I spent sunday night in Blackwing Lair, we got Nefarion to 17%. It was really fun but kind of put a damper on the end of it when we didn't get him, because I knew they would get him the next night and Chris and I wouldn't be there. I wouldn't have gotten into the raid anyway most likely because there are a million hunters who get to go to every raid and always show up. Hunters ftl :(

It was worth it to miss Nef night anyway though because it was [livejournal.com profile] kyorei's birthday :) We went to Osaka in Northampton and met a lot of her friends and also some people we knew beforehand of course, like Joe, Nathan, etc. It was hibachi and it was really good <3 I had chicken and steak (chicken was good, steak was amazing!!) and Chris had chicken and scallops. Our chef was really funny too :) and very nice. We left in order to get home by about 10:00 which worked out perfectly pretty much. I wasted time in North DM with Chris and Alan because I thought we could 3-man the first boss of North DM. The short answer is yes we could, and we killed him twice, but it's very difficult to clear to him especially with the lag we encountered and taunt resists that Olaine came up against. Not to mention the boss does a knockback which clears aggro. Sometimes I had to go all out dmg just to draw aggro away from kelsin to keep him alive, especially when Olaine's taunt was resisted. Anyway he didn't drop either item Olaine or I wanted EITHER time, arg, so we will have to go back sometime hopefully with at least one more person. We did get a very good understanding of exactly how we needed to clear North Dire Maul at minimum in order to get the boss. Also, there are 2 patrols that go by the ramp leading to the first boss. It was very mean :( I got stuck between both of them once and died. (I was on my mage, so no shadowmeld!)

Yesterday was Valentine's day. Chris woke me up around whatever time and tried to get me to go take a shower or wash my face (because I was saying how tired I was) or anything but I wouldn't budge because I was so tired. Finally I did get up for a minute and when I came back and started to get ready for the day I noticed a huge card on my computer desk :) It was very sweet of him, hehe. I went to work, then class, it was the same old stuff. Went to dinner with Brian and Jared (and Chris of course) at the dining commons, not exactly a romantic dinner or anything :P but we just went out the night before and I had no appetite whatsoever the entire day. I ate a lot at the appropriate times of the day but never really felt hungry, it was weird. Then Chris and I watched War of the Worlds, it was okay. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. The end was a little weird and I think the title is somewhat inappropriate considering what actually happens in the movie. Then we watched an episode of cowboy bebop and went to bed!

Digital Media: Still Image just ended about 45 minutes ago. Now I'm going to go eat lunch because I am starving! Then it's Maya class time which I hope will be fun. 3 hours is kind of way too long to just sit and be talked to about Maya :( but oh well.

bday!

Just got home a few hours ago (okay, I guess I didn't "just" get home...)!

I had a nice weekend... we got home and mom sliced some turkey that she bought at... Costco? Anyway, it was surprisingly awesome turkey. We ate our awesome turkey sandwiches while watching a recorded episode of CSI: Miami on tv. Chris and I brought our computers to my house also (/my parents' house, I dunno, I call them both "home") and played a bit of WoW, then my uncle arrived, then pretty soon everyone got there (Jim and his fiancee Shannon, Mike, Mike #2 (a 22 year old handicapped guy they are taking care of, who has been living with them) Tammy, Austin, Brenna, and Shealyn, and Grandma :D). We ate some tasty steak and my mom's awesome macaroni salad <3 and potato salad and corn on the cob.

Playing with Shealyn was so much fun XD She was so cute. She kept pressing her face/nose up against our glass sliding door, and I was standing on the other side of it, so I did the same thing and she thought it was soooo funny, it was absolutely adorable :D

I got a really pretty shirt from Jim and Shannon (which I'm wearing right now :D). It's a light blue with a fairie drawn on it in glitter :D Chris and I played some more WoW after everyone left (except my uncle who was leaving the next day) but he had a headache so we went to bed pretty early.

This morning my dad asked if we wanted to go to Friendly's, which of course we did :P Richie told me that his birthday present to me would be $200 toward the laptop that I want. I imagine mom and dad might do something similar, but I don't know yet.

Umm... around 1 or so realized we completely forgot to start laundry D: so we did two loads.

I don't have much else to talk about, and it was all boring stuff, but that's ok :D

Does anyone know anything about laptop video cards? I was looking into getting a laptop with a... 128mb DDR ATI Radeon XPS... something... 300? I forget :( I just am wondering if it will be decent for running games. Obviously I'm not looking for anything incredible, but I want a computer that can decently run 3D modeling programs and World of Warcraft, at least not at the level my sister's laptop plays (which by the way is about as close as you can get to "unplayable" and still be able to play!)

Chris got me the most awesome presents ever :) The DVD for the L'arc~en~Ciel concert that of course we went to at Otakon last year! BUT I was super disappointed to not see any DOLPHIN scene when we were flipping through it :( However, "DO YOU EAT CRAB?!" and "EVANGELION! GOING BERSERK!" survived to make it into the dvd, so I am okay... I guess. :p He also got me a Japanese import Something Corporate CD... Konstantine is on it!! And Forget December! That was a HUGE surprise, I had no idea it even existed.

Anyway now I'm super tired, and I think it's time for bed :)

last night was the most god-awful Dire Maul run ever.

First of all, Elemental Mage Staff dropped. That was the one and ONLY good thing that happened. It is now sitting in my mage alt's inventory waiting for level 56. <3 I thought of offering it to Syrus but I have seen him trying to sell one in IF, so he's had his chance at it :p

Mimus thought he had the key for the inner courtyard, because he got it last run. We got there, it was gone from his inventory. Okay. We go back and get it, and decide we'll only have partial tribute. Then we need to summon our paladin because he left the instance to go repair. We start back - and lo and behold, the key is gone. It's because now if you leave the instance, the key disappears from your inventory.

Okay. We reset it, I go in, I get the key myself. I die in the instance and I release. The key was deleted from my inventory for being outside the instance in WISP FORM on the way back to the instance. WTF.

So... whatever. Fine. We reset the instance again, decide it's pointless to try a tribute run now since we don't have a rogue or any way to unlock the door. We start killing the bosses, and we get to the 3rd one. Server crashes. We log back in, whole instance is reset, then instance servers crash for the remainer of the night.

Thanks a lot, Blizzard, for that awesome waste of time. To say the least I submitted an annoyed, but controlled, ticket about this :/

If not for the epic drop (which trust me, was VERY easy to forget by the end of the night)... ugh.

Anyway, gotta brush my teeth and get to work soon.

Oh and last but not least..

Happy 21st birthday to Chris :D

If someone wants to get me a big birthday present... and doesn't mind it being a little late... or wants to combine with other people on my present... well, the Real Life complete year one collection just happens to come out on July 5th... ;) ;) ;) ;)

*ahem*

So yeah... anyway... I don't know. I woke up around 8 something as usual, because I can't sleep later than that... feeling kind of tired still. I think I should go take a shower. Mom is going to get a new car today. I don't know what we're going to do.

I'm confused because I'm getting emails with viruses that look like they are from legit places. For instance, the CS391 instructors Yahoo group, or a returned email from a UMass student (supposedly). So freaking annoying.

Maybe I'll feel better, but I'm not in a great mood right now :( I don't know why. I spent the morning reading IanComix which was fun, and...... yeah I guess that's all. I haven't done a lot. Well, shower time I guess. I'm not sure what we're doing today. I think dinner either here or Mike and Tammy's later. I wish I had asked mom earlier for a cheesecake birthday cake. I really want one but I never mentioned it before today, which well kind of limits that possibility. Umm... yeah I turn 20 today. *waves a little flag*

I can't wait for college to start again :( I feel so lonely here sometimes. I wish insurance wasn't an issue, because I would so be racing to get my license. I hate being so confined to one place all the time - I'm sorry, a full hour or more on the bus just to get to the mall (which sucks anyway) isn't worth the trip, because I'd still have to get BACK. And, blah :( I just need to focus on other things that I like to do when I'm by myself, like art :|

Oh yeah I didn't post this yet. I wrote this almost an hour ago. Well NOW I'll go take a shower.
