So, I had the most jiggity jive day yesterday ♥ I got a call from my old friend from high school, Olivia. She was like "let's hang out!" and I was like "yes!" and so we did. It was one crazy day. We went to Olive Garden and I had the best soup I've ever had in my life. Ever. I don't remember what it was called but it had a thick creamy cheesy broth and it had chicken and dumplings and carrots in it. I got all emotional and cried as I ate it because it was delicious. The breadsticks were also extremely delicious. We had a lot of trouble finding Olive Garden at first and then we decided we had to follow these people who had a novelty license plate because we couldn't tell what it was supposed to say.

So, after that we took the leftover breadsticks to Gamestop where Olivia works and gave them to her coworkers, who were not very nice or friendly and just kind of stared at me like they were judging me or something. They made me really uncomfortable and they didn't even say hi. But after that we went to Big Lots and looked at everything. I discovered that Olivia has a need to buy something at every store she visits, so she was like "Help me find something to buy, Danie!!!!!" XD we were looking at bras in Big Lots, and she wears a double D cup and I wear an A cup. Everything was B cups and C cups and we were both like "what gives!?" There was this really cute training bra that would have fit me but it was like "YOU CAN'T BUY A TRAINING BRA ARE YOU CRAZY!?" and so we went and played in the furniture section. Then we went to Olivia's house so I could meet her cat and get some games because we decided we needed to go to my house and play Lego Batman. We forgot the games and had to go back after we'd gotten to my house XD on the way to her house to get them, she swerved into this gas station like "OH GOD I NEED AN ARNOLD PALMER!" and she got me hooked on them. It's like... half iced tea, half lemonade, and it's amazing.

So, we got back to my house and played a bunch of games with Brittany like Assassin's Creed and Lost Odyssey. Now, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm in love with Kaim XD he's so... ah. And Jansen. Ahhhhhh! And Olivia ended up staying until almost 10 and then she realized she had to work in the morning. Also, she got a sewing machine so she was all happy about that. She is the most amazing fashion designer I've ever met. She just effortlessly makes these tiny hats and stuff like that, and she said she'd make me one. She amazing at it O: she wants to be a costume designer.

So, I had a lot of fun yesterday. It really made my week. Olivia is one of those really fun slightly crazy people that just makes you glad to be alive. She had this wooden fan that she carried around the whole time and she had a cane in her car and her explanation was "I need a weapon, don't I?" I was so glad to see her. I hadn't seen her since Sparky and Micah's wedding. I love spending time with old friends. It occurs to me that they're the reason I'm me; I was relatively normal and boring when I started high school and everyone I made friends with was all fun and crazy, and they pulled me out of my shell XD thank God for them.

Also, Sammy's birthday was a few days ago, so Brittany and I are going to see her today and bring her gifts of the art variety. Egad, I love that girl XD I can't wait!

So, this week is just wonderful.

And also, I've suddenly become like the world's biggest Haruhi fangirl XD whenever I see something with her on it I'm like "I WANNA BUY THAT!" I just can't stop myself. I also can't stop drawing her X3

So guys, the other day I was at Borders killing some time and trying to avoid the temptation to buy stretchy rubber animals and making small talk with Nathan about both of our new haircuts, and I happened to be thumbing through notebooks and found this:

I died a little inside when I saw this )

I was just like "O: wh...what?" for like a full minute and then my heart stopped. And then I screamed. And then, despite the fact that I NEED TO BE SAVING MY MONEY GODDAMMIT I'M ON A BUDGET GAH I rushed up to the counter and bought it. I was trying to justify my actions to the cashier for some reason and I was like "See I... I really need this. I can't really afford it but I need it. You know? You know? It makes me feel like flying inside, you know? Right? 8DDDDDDD Yeah?" and she was like "/: Uh..." Poor lady. I always feel bad for people who get caught on my warpath when I'm in an enthusiastic mood ^^;

They also had pencil bags, stickers, pencils, pencil sharpeners, and gel pens, but I restrained myself because I couldn't afford to spend like $40 on that kind of thing right now. But it hurt not buying them. It hurt.

Also lol:

I run the Tama one and my best friend [ profile] suddenkiss runs the Kyouya one XD she spent the night this weekend and instilled in me the madness required to make something like that. Enjoy. We also made a blanket fort and it was AMAZING 8D it took up half the old daycare wing of my house. It was enormous, for a blanket fort. And we watched The Final Destination, which was okay but not phenomenal. But it was hilarious when George was sitting there after his attempt at suicide failed and he was just chatting casually with Lori and whatshisface with the cut noose still around his neck. Sadly I remember the name of every single character except for the main character who had those premonitions XD We had this candy that was rose and lemon flavored from Istanbul, and though it wasn't really delicious or anything, we couldn't stop eating it all night and commenting on how it tasted like old people. I really want more now O: I really, really, really love anything from foreign countries. It fascinates me. I'm like... the world's biggest tourist even in my own hometown.

And finally, me and Brittany discovered the BEST game in the world. We go to Target in the CD section and one of us chooses a CD and does the same pose as the artist on the front. Then the other tries to guess who we are by looking at the CDs and trying to find the pose that matches the one we're doing. It works best in the hip hop section. It's so much fun and it's also free, which is a big selling point with both of us these days since we're both kinda low on cash XDDD Brittany's like "we're paving the way in commoner entertainment lol" We also like to watch people shop and make up soap opera style backstories for them.

Anyway, today we're going to Taco Bell after she gets home at 1 and buying stuff off the 99 cent menu and then we're going to Target to play that game and pine over things we can't buy in the stuffed animal aisle. It should be fun <3

I have not been to sleep in TWO DAYS. I'm so tired, but I'm so in tune with the world right now and I don't want to sleep O: I can write amazingly now and all of my senses are super defined. I feel like I have superpowers!

Also, there was this dress at JC Penny for $150, and I got it on sale and guess how much I paid for it? EIGHT DOLLARS. YES. And today I watched the live action movie of Blood: The Last Vampire and... SAYA X ALICE IS OTP FOREVER. ALL ARGUMENTS ARE INVALID.

And finally, here's something I drew:
woooooo )

And now I need to sleep really badly ;_; I'll update when I've slept and therefore am slightly less obnoxious XD why do I have to have so much energy?

OH, and you know Marilyn Manson and Madonna Wayne Gacy? WELLLLLLLL... I'm Selena Kodaira XD my sister and I decided we needed Marilyn Manson names. Mine comes from Selena as the first (obviously) and Yoshio Kodaira (Japanese serial killer) as the last XD you guys should pick one. Choose a female celebrity icon's name for your first name and the last name of a mass murderer for your last.

I CAN'T BELIEVE BRITTANY MURPHY IS DEAD! ;_; I'M SO SAD! It just feels so unreal to find out that a celebrity I loved is gone. It doesn't feel like it could have really happened. I fully plan to watch all of her movies that I have on DVD this week to mourn her passing. *corner of woe* She will be greatly missed. I just... gosh, it's so sad. She was an amazing actress and her roles and lines and delivery always made me laugh.

Anyway, trying to myself up: the musical feast was amazing <3 The food was really good and Brittany made the best waitress! ^^ She was so polite and I totally had to give her a huge tip I couldn't afford. Her French was impeccable, too! Natalie was there because she played in the band at the beginning, and I was talking to her and she was looking at me weird and kind of trying to get away, and then she was like "DANIE!? IS THAT YOU!?" XD I was wearing makeup, so she didn't recognize me. Apparently I could go undercover as a different girl by just wearing makeup *never bothers to* So Natalie came and sat at the table with me and my parents and got free food XD Also, Brooke (my friend from high school) was at our table too! We got caught up and it was really nice. I had a great time. The music was beautiful!

I did more Xmas shopping on Saturday, and I got my gifts for EVERYONE but Lisa and Sammy. Sammy because I FORGOT to buy her the Naruto pencil sharpener *suicide* and Lisa because I always have trouble shopping for her XD It's like... it's impossible to find a gift for her that I deem good enough. Yeesh, being in love complicates stuff *rubs temples* I've been trying to find her a gift for three months! I WANT TO BE FINISHED SO I CAN STOP STRESSING! I NEVER STRESS SO WHAT THE HELL!?

So anyway, when I was typing "I'm a Slave 4 U" in the music space, I typed "I'm a Salve 4 U" at first and cracked up XDDDDD If I laugh much harder, I'm going to NEED some salve for my ripped sides.

Well... I'm so excited for Christmas that I can barely even breathe at this point. <3 <3 ,3 <3 Bring it on, world!

Also, Ouran chapter 77 is coming out this week *needs* I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS ALREADY! TamaHaru, plz.

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

So, today I bought this freaking amazing scarf and hat that will keep me very warm this winter! <3 and since I bought something so very practical, I also had to buy a stuffed Hello Kitty in a kimono. She was just too cute to pass up! I was standing there pondering and this little girl came up to me and said (very matter of factly) "They never have that one. You should buy it"... and I did. It's far from me to disregard advice given by a child XD they're so much wiser than us "adults".

Also, when Brittany and I were at Taco Bell today eating outside (it was such a nice day today), this little blonde boy kept knocking on the window at me, and when I tapped back he would hide and then he'd come and do it all over again. It was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute! ;_; I almost exploded from the sheer adorableness of it! I didn't want to scare him, so I had to wait until we left to scream and jump around going "OMFG HE WAS SO CUTE!", which led to Brittany being like. "OMIGAWD you are such an idiot!!!111eleven"

In other news, I bought the rest of the Funimation Ouran DVDs DX [ profile] suddenkiss and Natalie convinced me. I can't resist Ouran merchandise. It also came with this really cute Host Club calendar that I tacked up on my wall. BAW, I love the freebies that come with anime stuff. The dubs are really funny... Tamaki is SO FREAKING ANNOYING in them that we keep having to take breaks while we watch it. My mom was watching with us and she was like "So, is he gay, or what?" XDDDDDD and then she was like "OMG Haruhi's a girl WUT!?" she got so into it XP

I need to stop spending money! DX but work is going great (though it's hard, very unglamorous work being a maid), so I guess I can afford to stop being so damn cheap now and then. I need some new gloves, anyway. I'm tired of wearing my mismatched ones with holes in them.

Peace, kitties! <3

So, the Strawberry Festival was a lot of fun. We ate Chinese food and wandered around getting sunburned. XD I loved spending the day with my family. I got these little soy melting cubes (strawberry scented) to put in my oil burner. They smell so good that I want to eat them, and they were CHEAP! 8D

After the festival, we went to the mall. I know I said I wasn't going to buy anything for a while, but they had... sales ;_; GOOD SALES! I got a pink striped fedora, a cupcake print makeup bag, a sparkly wallet, some multicolored eyeshadow, and a bunch of jewelry for under $10 all together. But then... then I came across these:

possibly the cutest thing Japan has ever created )
