Alot has happened since I last updated. Aside from Spain winning the WC. I had surgery done on my teeth two days ago. It was wisdom tooth extraction, so now I have four gaping holes in my mouth and it's tough because I cant eat the food I used to. and I am stuck eating some seriously gross shit. Nothing is worse than packaged dried mashed potatoes. That's what I get for being lazy I guess (but lord i've been tired these past few days) and I spend alot of time hungry since eating is difficult. Also I am a wuss when it comes to pain. Surprisingly this affliction has made me more productive so I've been able to comment a bit more in some of the communities I enjoy frequenting.
I also finally finished my game Mass Effct II (and Jade Empire which I stopped right before the end before finishing for a long time) So that's good. I am starting on Red Dead Redemption now. One of my fantasies I confess has been to explore the old west like a cowboy so this game is appealing to me because of that, but also since I only rented it I dont have to feel bad if I dont finish the game lol. Which I probably won't since school reconvenes soon.
It's funny I have alot of interests that I am passionate about: games, feminism, films, tv, stories, music etc but I dont bother to write about most of it. I feel like this journal should be a better reflection of who I am and what I care about but at the same time I am often lazy about writing 1 because I dont know who reads what and if it's just for myself I dont need to update that much. But also because I worry I wont articulate myself well and often give up before trying to write anything too complex. It's also easier to just comment in other journals or communities about a topic of interest rather than post about it in my lj, since usually when I post I want some kind of discussion or feedback which is not always guaranteed in my own journal (understandably). Also my mind is so disorganized that I suppose it is fitting that my journal would be so as well. In terms of content.

Anyway, it's 5 am and I woke up a few hours ago to take my pain meds and penicillin but I feel sleep coming on again so I will go back to sleep now. Ideally I will update this journal again soon with something substance...or a meme. Probably the latter. I miss posting memes!

For shits and giggles, I leave you all with this:

This made me laugh so hard the first time I saw it. If only more of those regency romance novels went down this track, I'd probably enjoy them alot more. heh.

Hello flist! Lots to cover today but first things first:

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] kipani_mariko!


I suck so much for not doing this yesterday but I had my reasons, namely being very out of it for most of yesterday and not realizing it was the 21st until very late. Tai's summer usually involves walking around barely realizing what time of day or date it is and plenty of junk food. I am so fat now. I'VE GAINED FIVE POUNDS *SOBS*

Anyway whining and excuses aside. You are a wonderful friend <3 and the last two years knowing you have been great, well not great in general but the time spent speaking to you itself was great! yes and I hope you have a really great year!
Ok ok that was the worst birthday blog post ever. -_- Hopefully my gift will make it up to you though, it should arrive by the next week or so. :D (with a colorful sappy card! yay!)

Tv: I have been watching alot of stuff lately! YAY. Mainly though I've recently gotten into Gossip Girl. Yes Gossip Girl. DEAL WITH IT.
Ahh it is such a great trainwreck show, with crazy drama and bitchy ladies and hot...everybody really. What I love most about gossip girl though? NONE of the female characters annoy me! NOT EVEN ONE! and The fandom isnt full of woman hating pyschos and slashers! (like almost every other fandom on the internet. But best part is there is FEMME SLASH. WAH IT EXISTS. It also has the best couple to ever exist on tv ever. Chuck & Blair. My glee tis a gleeful thing! )

Also Gossip Girl makes me really want to watch Skins. Which I have been meaning to watch for the last YEAR AND A HALF and still havent gotten around to it. FAIL
Speaking of BBC shows I want to see. North & South! I so need to see this! It looks awesome and sounds like a period drama with a bit of a romance plot which is my fave combination in a bbc drama! They do period dramas so so well.
In fact I was really looking forward to checking out their newest period drama Desperate Romantics. I was like "Ohhh a drama about the pre-raphaelite painters? Sounds interesting!" So then I go read up on the Pre-raphaelite painters, in one of my big art history books. So I can better appreciate the drama...BIG MISTAKE. Allow me a moment of ranting if you will ) That being said the New Romantics were totally the rock stars of their time in a way and so I do get why the BBC would make a show about them and I dont discourage anyone from seeing it. But then I would never discourage people from learning about history in any way. Perhaps more people will become interested in art history because of this show!

True Blood ep5: Alot of people hated this episode because it was slow moving and repetitive. all of this is true. however I did not hate it. Why? Because of this scene:

PURE EPIC. I suddenly wish the whole show was now about vampire viking erik and his pretty vampire buddy Godric and their travails through ancient Scandinavia.

Leverage: BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER BABY. Oh how did I manage so long without this show? ;_; I love how the shit has been switched up on Nate. Because after pretty much looking down on his team all of last season for being criminals (despite WORKING for him and using their shady expertise to help people the entire time) they have now latched unto him and own his apartment and they will never ever ever leave. plus Sophie moved on and got a new man! SUCK IT NATE. I also died laughing when I found out his apartment was placed OVER A BAR which is hilarious only if you know he's a recovering alcoholic. I swear that man is a masochist or in Eliot's words "Very Catholic". Also the Parker/Hardison moment <3
I am so looking forward to tonight's episode and YES I DID NOT FORGET THIS TIME ABOUT IT.

I really want to do an OTPs ranking lately. Mostly so I can have an excuse to gush about chuck/blair some more but really it sounds like a fun idea. I wanna do one for my platonic OTPs too actually...
Well that's all! You know you love me~XOXO (yes that is a gg reference. *dodges rocks*)
