Just Wingin' It version 9: "My World is Ending"

I thought it was time for a new layout. Version 8 was up for nearly a month. Wow... that's way too long for one layout, don't you think? ^_^ So yes, I present to you readers version 9: "My World is Ending." Last layout was sorta dark and forboding. This layout is kinda angsty. ^_^; It not like I really set out to make it look angsty. I just wanted to make a layout with Asuka. Granted, I wasn't exactly planning to make it jovial or anything. It just... well... came out this way. ^_^; This layout isn't bad I suppose. I used a lot of spiffy textures in this one. I kinda went overboard a little, so the text is a tad hard to read on the top of the sidebar, but oh well. Highlight it if you want to read it. I'll make you work to read! ^_^ So yes, I hope you peoples like it.

Note to self: make sure the rest of the layout below the top is more interesting in the next layout. ^_^;

Riku:
New layout! Sweet! ^_^ It's really pretty. I hope you can get Blogger to cooperate with you. Oh, and good luck getting the comments back up. I want to spam your comments. I mean... give you a couple of comments.... ^_^

Saga:
Woo! Saga likes one-piece suits! Another reason to say you're cool. ^_^

Tichan:
Another one-piece (not the manga ^_^;) fan! Woo! You're cool too Tichan. ^_^

Eh... I was expecting to do more socialing, but it seems that there isn't anything else I want to say. ^_^; Give me stuff to social about folks! ^_^

Things kinda picked up yesterday. Went over to James's for a pool party. Yes, another. I think that was the... third one this summer...? ^_^; That's alright with me though because them pool parties are actually rather fun and I get some nice exercise. Swimming works out the entire body, don'tcha know. ^_^ Anyway, I got to spend time with spiffy peoples, swim, and most importantly, eat good food! ^_^ James, you grill mighty well, although grilling isn't exactly one of the hardest cooking techiniques.... ^_^;

This whole pool party thing made me think about something: why don't more girls wear one-piece swimming suits? Personally, I think that one-piece suits look best on a girl. Call it a personal preference. I hear that they're kinda hard to take off when you want to, but really now, how many times do you have to take off your suit after getting into the water? Maybe one or two restroom breaks, but that's about it.

Onto another subject:
Dang, I really, really want a new car. =( I just finished rewatching Initial D first through third stage. Wow... that series is good.... Although, I get envious because all them cars are so darn cool and mine... isn't.... ^_^; I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I want a darn RX-7 FD3S! *grumble grumble*

Danny:
Hey, you got Color Walk? That's great! I got it a while ago and it's great isn't it? I'm eagerly anticipating Color Walk 2. ^_^

I need to check out that Hellsing you've been talking so much about....

Saga:
Hey, thanks for the concern Saga.... It's much appreciated. *hug hug*

Heh heh... you're gonna use "nyeh" now? ^_^ My words always seem to get around. I guess they're just so cool. ^_^

I've been kinda out of it for the last couple of days. I don't know. I really don't have much on my mind right now. I've just been kinda... "nyeh...." Oh wait... I don't think I've ever used that word on this log. ^_^; For your information, that's my general purpose word for many things. In this case, it's being used to describe a feeling of, I suppose indifference. Anyway, if you ever see it again, take it in context, ok? Anyway, back to my point... I really haven't been feeling all that peppy/energetic. I guess I'm never really like that, but even less so recently. I really don't know why either. I'm not sad/depressed or anything if any of you are thinking that. I don't know... maybe it's been the heat. I suppose that's a reasonable assumption. Or maybe it's the fact that nothing's been happening. There's nothing worth getting excited about. That's another reasonable assumption. Oh whatever. *yawn*

Seems that today was supposed to be hotter than yesterday, but it sure didn't seem like it. I suppose it's because yesterday there was a hot wind going around, while today, there was little to no wind at all. At least in my house, it seemed cooler than yesterday. Unfortunately, my dad felt the need to make me go downstairs, away from the computer because it was "too hot." Bah! So yah... I was stuck downstairs for a good portion of the day without anything to do. Eventually I got around to getting some manga to read. I reread the first two tankouban of Video Girl Ai. Man, I love that series. Yota's the man! ^_^ I gotta say, if I were to choose just one anime/manga guy that's most like me, I would have to say it's Yota (runner up: Urashima Keitaro). You don't know how many times Yota did something and I was all like, "wow! That's so what I would have did!" So yah.... The best thing though is that Ai's so darn cute! ^_^ Geez... why can't I find a girl like her?

Oh! I finally found out what it's like in a call box! One great mystery of the universe down. ^_^ It just so happens that I was passing through a parking lot in De Anza and there, I spotted a call box. It was just right in the middle of the lot. So I made my way over there and peeked inside, and you know what I found? There was a phone and a big red button. Reading the instructions, apparently that button directs you to an operator. Now that I think about it, that makes a lot of sense, but I never thought of it. ^_^; So yes, now you know and knowing's half the battle. G.I. Joe! ^_^

I'll social tomorrow or something. Lazy. ^_^

x_x <-- Me dying from heat.

Yep, today was pretty darn hot. I heard on the radio that it got to something like 106 degrees inland. I suppose San Jose's not exactly all that inland, so it wasn't that bad, but it was still pretty bad. I was forced to strip down to just shorts (i.e. no shirt) again. Gwar! I don't like dressing like this! It's way too little. I need a nice shirt and long pants otherwise I don't feel right. Although, in conditions like today, I had to make an exception. Even less dressed it was still darn hot. I was dying I tell you! I went out to buy some KFC for my sister and me and the car was just unbearably hot. I don't see how I actually got into that thing. I suppose the reward of 10 hot wings and 10 honey BBQ wings made me do it. ^_^; As for at home, I was lying on the ground, trying to get as low as I could because hot air rises, don'tcha know. At least I got to eat ice cream. Mmm~ ice cream.... Ice cream good! David like ice cream. ^_^ Just until a little while ago, it was still pretty hot. At least it's gotten a lot cooler now that it's 11. I'm happy. I can sleep in peace and possibly more clothes. ^_^

I just cleaned out my keyboard. Eww~ Where the heck does all that crap come from? You'd be amazed at all the stuff down under them keys. I know I was. I recommend that everyone clean out their keyboards. It'll make your keyboard happier and surprise you on so many levels....

I was just wondering today, what the heck are those call boxes along the freeway like? Are they like, real phones? Or are they phones that only call 911? Can you call long distance on them? If not, can you use phone cards? As far as I'm concerned, it's one of the great mysteries of life. I want to find out! I'm pulling over on the freeway one of these days I tell you....

I'm sure you peoples have been missing my wonderful entries, eh? ^_^ Honestly, I don't see how I kept doing a daily entry for 15+ days myself. Is my life really that interesting? Well... anyway, I didn't post cause I'm sure you folks wouldn't appreciate entries that read: "well... I played 5 hours of Grandia II today....." ^_^ Anyway, I actually have stuff to talk about today. So... yah....

Archery's getting harder. Today we finally started moving back further. We practiced on the 20 yard line today. At that distance, my shots were going slightly off. I generally consider myself a pretty good shot, so this is was really annoying me. So I spent most of the class trying to figure out how to aim better. Fortunately, by the end of class, my arrows didn't really go too far from where I aimed, so that was nice. After class I chatted with the teacher and I figured out why my arrows are slightly off now. I arch right-handed. Now when you arch right-handed, the bow is lined up right along your right eye and that is the eye that should be doing most of the aiming. Unfortunately, I have a dominant left eye. ^_^; This causes a paralax problem. My left eye is the eye that is doing most of the aiming and it's not the one lined up with the bow. So while I try to aim, I'm aiming slightly to the right of my mark. At the 10 and 15 yard lines this really didn't happen, but now that we're back further, it's starting to be a problem. Gwar. My teacher says that my brain will make the necessary adjustments by itself, but I find that I have to do some concious compensating and aiming too. *Sigh* Well... I'll get it sometime. I will be a better shot I tell you!

I'm happy because the maler parental figure hasn't been getting on my nerves recently. Woo! Sure, he's been nagging me about things here and there and has been trying to get me to lift weights out back, but nothing I can't deal with. *Sigh of relief* Life is good. ^_^ I just stay in the computer room all day, listen to music, watch anime, and play video games. I reininterate: life is good. ^_^

So yes... I've been spending much of my time just playing video games and watching anime. I've been playing a little FFX and quite a bit of Grandia II recently. Good game that Grandia II. I love the battle system. Very very fun. The characters are pretty interesting too. I've developed a slight liking for Elena. She's pretty cute. Very righteous and nave. ^_^ As for anime, I finished rewatching Initial D a little while ago and now I'm rewatching Onegai Teacher. After this, what the watch next...? I think I might rewatch Kare Kano. ^_^

Saga:
Yay! Saga's back! ^_^ I'm glad you had fun on your vacation. Vacations should be fun. So yah... once again, welcome back. *hug hug*

Riku:
Everyone, Riku's temporarily logging here.

Yay! Riku's not dead! ^_^ So it was ShippouNET that died, eh? Well... good luck getting your log back up. Remember, if you need hosting, I'm here. ^_^

Gomaki:
I see Gomaki's happy. I wonder why that might be.... ^_^ Hey, that's great that he actually replied. I'm happy for you. I need to e-mail Ayu and maybe BoA.... ^_^

David
(2) If you had been born a member of the opposite sex, what would your name have been?
I don't know what it would have been, but I would have liked it to be Aya.
(3) Would you name a child of yours after you?

No one really.
(5) What's the way people most often mispronounce any part of your name?
