So, this weekend was incredible. For serious. SO SO SO incredible. On Friday, I went to Hobby Lobby to get some stuff for commissions and almost everything I needed was on sale <3 then that evening, Brittany and Sammy and I went to the local production of Miss Saigon together, and it was beautiful <3 my old choir teacher (and Brittany and Sammy's current choir teacher) played Ellen, Chris' new wife, and she sounded amazing. She had such emotion in her voice that I cried a little during her big song. Also, Sammy and I went to the musical dressed as boys, and the girl at the next table checked me out. I was pretty convincing as a boy XD and then I accidentally went in the girls' bathroom and got weird looks. Oops. Makes me wonder what real trannies do when they need to pee. Because... well... going in the boys' bathroom is awkward for me, even when it looks like I belong there. It was so much fun 8D I love hanging out with Sammy. I didn't really think about it much before, but I've been friends with her since she was 2 years old. Seriously. And an added bonus is that we never run out of things to talk about, because we always have the same fandoms as each other XD <3

crossdressing pic time XD )

Then, on Saturday I went to lunch at Golden Corral and I got a ton of banana pudding, which is why I like to go there (I also filled an edible taco salad bowl with mashed potatoes, fries, and like 6 kinds of non-taco meat XD), and then we went to Costco (Cosco? I don't know how to spell it). At Costco, this really (super) cute guy was giving out samples of an energy drink/vitamin B12 supplement, and I tried the pink lemonade kind and said it was good, and he smiled charmingly at me and gave me a WHOLE BOTTLE OF IT. FREE. That never happens. Guys never flirt with me... especially stunning ones. But this guy totally flirted with me 8D I felt so good about myself all day, which was nice because I was having one of those bad skin days, so I was feeling bad about myself before.

THEN, on Sunday, we went to the mall and I didn't buy anything XD but in Hot Topic this girl said she liked my bag (it's an Ouran one) and I was like "8D you like Ouran too?" and she was like "YOU like Ouran too?" and her friend came up and was like "OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB?" and then we all screamed together and jumped around and went on about how no one in Billings liked it and it was cool to meet someone else who did <3 it was amazing. I felt like I was among my own kind XD also, while at the mall, I was talking about this bomber jacket that I want to buy (it's $40, which is like the equivalent of a $1,000,000,000 by my standards), and my dad gave me $20 toward it... without me even asking. It was so nice.

THEN ON MONDAY, which still counted as the weekend because Brittany had the day off from school, we sat around playing Sims 2 all day until later when we bleached our hair together <3 she's doing pink and blue streaks underneath like Katy Perry and I'm doing pink on the ends like Maria from Silent Hill 2 <3 it's going to be so awesome! Right now I still have the blonde ends but tomorrow I'm doing the pink. I'll post pics when I get it done... and some cosplay pics. Brittany has a jacket like the one James wears, and I have the boots and skirt (well, it's a shirt but I can make it look like it's a skirt XD) to be Maria, so we're going to take some funny pics. We also have a TamaHaru photoshoot planned. Not the cute kind, though XD she's going to be Tamaki and we're taking pictures of her holding a broken wine glass up to my neck.

So, this weekend was INCREDIBLE. I feel like I can take on the world.
I'll be working on commissions this week, so those of you who have one coming, it should be ready soon. I'm not setting a date, though, because I don't want to rush the pieces to meet a deadline. I want them to be beautiful.

Feeling better. My uncle (well, actually he was my great-uncle, I just always mess up ^^;) died on Thursday night. It wasn't as sad as it could have been, though, because he chose to die. He signed a "do not revive" order and he was really peaceful. I was too late to go to say goodbye, but I'd rather not remember him that way, anyway. I'd rather remember him with a guitar in his hands and a Star Wars joke on his lips. He wouldn't have wanted me to see him partially paralyzed. He was my hero as a kid and I'm really going to miss him. I think I'll learn to play guitar to help keep his memory alive. I think he'd like that.

On Friday, my cousin Jascel, my uncle Neil, and his wife Reana came to visit, and we had the best time. On Sunday night we sat up laughing, telling inappropriate jokes, and making prank calls. My cousin Alex has this whale joke where you say "what did one whale say to the other" and the answer is just making whale sounds for 10 minutes straight or so, so we called people and did that to them XD despite the fact that everyone there but me was over 30 years old, we acted like a bunch of kids. It was amazing and the most fun I've had in ages. Also, Jascel might be moving back to Montana, which would be amazing because then we could do that kind of thing every weekend XD

Also, I finally managed to get the virus off my computer without paying $100+, thanks to [ profile] lovinjerryt's suggestion of putting it in safe mode and running Malewarebytes. Thank goodness I can use my money on Xmas presents for everyone now. Well, for the stuff to make the presents because I'm doing jewelry for Xamas this year <3

I'm really excited for Xmas at this point. I'm working on presents but there's no way they'll be ready in time ^^; sorry about that, guys, but a late present is better than no present at all! I went to Brittany's choir concert last night and it was a blast. It really got me in the spirit for some baking <3

Also.... this

I totally think this warrants use of my Joe Dubois icon (OMG Medium is so totally my drug right now. Did you guys see "Allison Rolen Got Married"? It made me cry like seriously. I bawled until the end and then I was like "Ooh yay fluff X3". And I finally saw the pilot this weekend. Lol Texas Rangers).

So, this weekend I decided to make some chicken gnocchi soup for my family, because it's my favorite soup and I love to cook but I hadn't tried making it before. I've been trying to find out what kind of soup is was for ages and I finally did, and the temptation to make it was irresistible. But sadly, I made a classic mistake that someone who's been cooking since childhood should have remembered not to make for the millionth time: I overestimated how much flour I needed.

I was cursing at it and my dad was like "what's wrong with it? It looks fine" and then I explained that it was supposed to be soup and he agreed that there was definitely a problem and then made fun of me XD

It also didn't taste good, because aside from the overly-floury taste, the dumplings mixed in with the gluey broth because they were so soft and the broth was a little too thick, and they made it doubly so. The result was this ball of paste-like nasty bread-flavored horror:

let this be a lesson to you )

I also burned the fried dumplings and garlic bread I made to go on the side XD so the whole meal was fail and my family and I got a great laugh out of the whole thing. But my sister made a cake that turned out perfect, so we ate that for dinner instead <3 I'm going to make it again this weekend. And I will continue to make it every weekend until I make some that turns out. I've told my family that it's not a threat, it's a promise XD

Also, does anyone know of any significance with "20576"? Because I can't stop thinking about it recently. It runs through my head whenever I'm not actively thinking about something else. I just want to know why /: I asked my mom because she gets stuff like that too and she said it sounds like it could mean June 20 1957. But I have no idea. Any thoughts?

I know I promised some TamaHaru this entry, but it'll have to be next time O: Sorry I forgot to write some.

EDIT: I googled the date (if it actually is a date) in question and this was the first this that came up.

So, some bad news: my grandma's house got broken into this weekend. It happened while she was out, for which I am eternally grateful. If something had happened to her, I don't know what I would have done! We may not always see eye to eye, but she's very important to me!
The weird thing is that though the whole house was completely trashed, nothing was missing. There was jewelry and checks and electronics and papers with her personal information out in the open, and none of it was taken. Even the kitchen garbage can had been looked through. The police said that the culprit was probably looking for something specific, but seriously... what could it have been? It seems weird to me that it happened because she lives in a really ritzy part of town, but I guess that's the kind of people that crooks want to rob.
So, my grandma has been staying with my aunt Cindy, and I'm so glad she's okay. This whole thing really freaked my whole family out. I just can't believe it happened. It's the kind of thing you hear about happening to other people.

On a cheerier note, I have some good news: I teach my first class at the elementary school this Friday! I have character development worked out for the lesson plan. I was thinking that I could just turn them loose with the worksheet I've prepared and they could just fill it out and then spend any free time of the lesson sharing their characters with me and with each other. I need you guys' help, though. Does this kind of worksheet seem like it'd be fun and age appropriate for 4th graders?
what do you think? )

Tell me if you think I need to fix it, and if so, how? Don't be scared to be brutally honest. I can take it. And I realize it's small XD the print size is a lot bigger than the version I showed here. I just need you guys to give me advice on it <3

Also, on another good note, I finally got paid from all the work I did before. I won't be working much for the family company until summer when business picks up, but until then, although it doesn't pay, I've got my teaching job. But, me getting paid from before is good news because a) I am no longer dirt poor and b) this means I can afford to send out all the packages with Xmas presents for you guys! Sorry they're a bit late! I'll try to get everything out as soon as I can, but I'm so busy right now that it might take a while O: I am so sorry! *slightly stressed, but happy*

Now I've just got to remember to budget really tightly until summer gets here... don't let me buy anything expensive, guys! *determined*


PS: Caitlin Glass ([ profile] kiristokyoto) is officially the cutest thing in the entire world XDDD her outtakes from recording Ouran completely made my weekend. Again. Weeee!

PPS: I found some of my crappy old Gorillaz fanart and I'm posting it in honor of the fact that Plastic Beach comes out this month XD enjoy
prepare to puke in the sink )

Okay, I'm done for real this time XD

So, this weekend I did some major Xmas shopping. I mostly making presents for people this year because it makes me feel way more awesome that people feel special because you took all that time on them! So I bought some stuff for making presents for everybody, plus some manga and such for a few people who need it XD I bought a yaoi manga ("Love Knot") for my friend who is the world's biggest otaku. Yes, bigger than Renge. I totally went crazy on my shopping spree even though I really couldn't afford to XDDDD I had so much fun!

I also bought myself this really cheap ($5) set of two ramen bowls with turquose glaze inside that came in a little basket that I've wanted for a while because they're so pretty (yeah, I get excited over stuff like tableware). And also... I found this for a dollar and had to buy it:
I challenge you to show me ANYTHING cuter than this! )

We also decorated the tree and made some peppermint meringue cookies and drank egg nog. I had the most fun time getting into the holiday spirit this weekend! And it's been decided that I get to host me and my friends' annual Christmas party again this year, despite my being the worst hostess ever XD So, I'm so pumped! *throws fist in the air*

Also, my sister and I did this TamaHaru RP when Tamaki got shot by a Yakuza boss, and it was so epic. I'm totally going to fic it. You wouldn't even believe how cool it turned out X3
grape_soda: (Haruhi dream)
So anyway, today Sav ([ profile] hikarunagisa) called and asked if I wanted to go barhopping with her and her friends from work XD I ended up not going because my parents were giving me this look like "Really?" when I was talking about it on the phone with her, and I hate when they're disappointed in me. But she's spending the night next week and we're going to watch stuff on Youtube and go to Taco Bell. But anyway, afterward I asked my family if I they thought I should have gone, and it went like this:

Brittany ([ profile] kiramekineko): Hell no! I don't want a bunch of bar skanks hitting on you!
Me: O.o You think they'd hit on me?
Brittany: *ponders* Well, maybe if they were drunk...

It made me laugh XDDD

Now, you guys know that infamous pairing meme where you fill out a character for each number and then fill out the answers? Well... I finally did it for Ouran:
Ouran pairing meme lololololololol )

I also started this new thing where every day (if possible XD) I write some quick notes directed to people I know expressing exactly how I'm feeling toward them, because I get really insecure when I don't know how people feel about me and I'd like to help at least some people feel less insecure by knowing what I'm thinking of them: [ profile] dear_youguys
It's an exercise in telling people what I really mean XD Don't worry, it'll be probably 90% nice stuff about people, because I don't get mad/annoyed easily. So feel free to friend the journal, since all of you will probably be mentioned there at some point *will try to friend everyone who's her friend here as well*

Also, I'm working on translating an ongoing TamaHaru RP I'm doing with [ profile] lovinjerryt into a fic (I RP Haruhi over at [ profile] hostprincess), which I'll probably post in segments down at [ profile] cookies_kisses, so yay I'm excited!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED!

And finally... I got a light up purple shot glass at Target today for a freakin' DOLLAR! OMIGAWD! 8D Brittany got a pink one, and we're going to do soda shots with them this weekend. HURRY UP WEEKEND, HURRY UP AND GET HERE! HURRRRRRRRY!

Wellllllllllll, it's been a nice week X3

pics of BFFs, plushie cuteness, and my boring haircut )

So anyway, I had a ton of fun this week. I spent time with my aunts and uncles and cousins and my grandma. I played hide and seek with my little cousins and got way more into it than they did XD I was like "WOOOOOO!" and running everywhere. It was a lot of fun. When I was a little kid, until Brittany was born I was the only kid in my family and then at school I was really shy, so I didn't really do stuff like that too much. My friends and I play ALL the time these days, but it's more fun to play with little kids because they share my energy level XDDDDDD SO MUCH FUN! Also, Brittany sorta taught me how to play Moonlight Sonata on the piano at my grandma's house. I'm horrible at the piano XD I guess I'm just not coordinated enough and my hands are too small to really hit all of the notes necessary. But it was fun anyway!

On Saturday, my parents and Brittany and I had a family game night and played Elixir (it's a wizard game from like 20 years ago where you brew potions and try to make the elixir of life). It was awesome. I spent almost every waking moment this whole week with my family XD There was a lot of bonding time this week and it was all so awesome and fun. Now I feel fuzzy inside and I'm so happy. I know it might be boring and kinda simple, but I love my life so much <3

grape_soda: (Tamaki purple eyes)
Sooooo anyway, Omari's Sister released translations of the new Ouran chapter. Click here to download:


spoilers beyond this point )

Anyway, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving in advance! ^.^ Due to family circumstances and a lot of busy-ness, and boring stuff no one will care about, I probably won't be online at all for at least a week or more. Take care, guys, and have fun without me XD

I'm making cookies for EVERYONE I hold dear, and if you're reading this, you're definitely on the list! PM me with your name, address, and favorite kind of cookie if you feel comfortable and I'll try to have the cookies to you before Christmas!

Danie <3

So yesterday was my 21st birthday!!!! Woooooo! I had so much fun! My family and I went to lunch (my sister skipped school XDDD) at a Chinese restaurant and we ate until we got sick! Then we went to the mall and we ran into Sarah and Lisa, who we hung out with all day and had an amazing time!!!!!! YAAAAAAAY! OMFG it was great! XD and I woke up in the morning and there were balloons everywhere, and streamers and stuff! OMFG!

[ profile] kiramekineko (my little sister): Death Note: The Last Name
Mom and Dad: Ouran part 1 DVD
[ profile] flowing_darknes: a phone call!! And a video!
Lisa: socks! and butterflies in my stomach
[ profile] shiningxsky: Tamaki Suoh (I'm not kidding)
Shauna: a battle of wits over the phone
[ profile] demi_rabbit: a hilarious AMV
[ profile] suddenkiss: a super fun sleepover/prostate exam
Everyone else: love and the best day ever!

We had lemon cake and peppermint chiffon pie at my grandma's house and I listened to [ profile] kiramekineko play the piano XD she played this song about a Chinese laundryman, and it was really random. There was this almond on the floor, and whenever anyone farted, we blamed it on the almond.It was so funny!!!! I had the most fun birthday ever because of how much time I got to spend with the people I love! I even got phone calls from some that I didn't get to see, which was so nice! Also, my Haruhi cosplay wig came in the mail, which was an added bonus! I was wearing it earlier, and it's so nice not having my hair all over me that I'm contemplating cutting my hair that short XD but then the wig would be pointless.

And no, I'm still not going to drink alcohol <3

So, since [ profile] shiningxsky gave me Tamaki for my birthday, that means I can dress him however I want *holds up skanky candy striper dress* >8D I smell fanfiction and one very disturbed Haruhi...
