Lol, I just saw that today. Pretty sure I don't hold it in as high as a regard as you do, but I liked it enough.

hhnnggg that's nasty man.

I've been finding a lot of cool stock pictures on dA that I wanted to try replicating the best I could. So I did another sketch, this time of Zelda from Skyward Sword;



I like the idea of her being more physically active instead of more passive. so. yeah.

So, I'm randomly finding these t-shirts around my room. Just plain colour t-shirts with nothing on them. They're too big to be my sister's, too small to be my mom's, surely too small to be my dad's, and I've asked my friends if there's a chance that they left a plain yellow or plain white t-shirt at my house, and they've all said no, so...

Kid Flash and Blue Beetle t-shirt time.

Crap. Didn't get my too-good-to-be-true housing option for college after all. Nothing wrong with a student house, but I need to find one that isn't "No overnight guests allowed whatsoever" (or if so, just not with a particularly attentive landlord/lady). Yannow, I'm 23, I've been with my boyfriend for five years and counting, and it's two hours from his place to Toronto PLUS a subway ride if he wants to visit me on a weekend, and I wouldn't have the money to go to his house every single time, PLUS there's a few cons in Toronto during the school year in which being able to stay a night free is the difference between being able to go or not... I'm not some drunken 19-year-old party girl who would abuse a "guests allowed" policy. If I had the money I'd get a proper apartment while in school so I wouldn't have to deal with any extra rules or housemates, but that's not happening.

For those who are sensitive to these sorts of things, don't click the link.

This was taken about a minute after it happened, at the current moment it's all red and pussy and i can see my dermis ok.

oh how I suffer.
OUCH!
I recently got a job working in my school's cafeteria's dish room, and on the first day I burned myself with the 180 degree water hose.

Every time I use that, I find myself thinking that it's the perfect temperature water for straightening wigs.

That sounds pretty harsh (back when I was in uni, you could have guests in halls for up to 2 nights as long as you filled in a form).

I saw it on Friday. It was worth seeing much, but it wasn't "Zombieland". I'm also tired of the whole "ELECTRONICS MAKE US ZOMBIES, LOL" gag. Just because it worked in Seaun of the Dead doesn't mean it would work again.

I also rented Resident Evil Extinction, which I can honestly say was not the worst movie I've seen in the last year. Sup Silent Hill.

The Super Bowl certainly happend, and thank god for the party I went to being so good, as the game was crap until halftime. And then the 30 minute power outtage. But at least...um.....the Rock in commericals?

I know at my school there are 3 kinds of web based - 100% 75% and 50%.

Essentially, 100% is totally online, you never go near the school for that class. 75% is you take the tests in a classroom, 50% is you meet like 3 or 4 times and take tests in class, seperate from the class meetings.
I hope his boss gives him the day off so he can relax.


I watched most of the Super Bowl. It was boring but my friend who was hosting made tacos and kielbasa. So that was nice. And we played glee karaoke and mario kart.

Warm Bodies is zombies, it is instantly off my radar.

You know that ASMR thing I mentioned a little while back? I guess it turns out that those videos are more popular than I think and that people with insomnia use them to go to sleep since it can be relaxing. I tried it when I got home from work yesterday, I slept for 13 hours. (put video on, can barely hear it, etc.)

More testing will be needed.

Edit - oh yeah thanks for that link Luna, I read it all, very entertaining, a few of my friends enjoyed it too.

I'll tell him to speak with the school about it, because I am sure he's not the only student who was mislead.

His counselors have been no help to him the entire time he's been going. He's been going on and off for around ten years now- having taken a couple years off and going only part time during some years. Another reason it's taken him so long to graduate is because his counselors never straight up tell him what classes he needs to finish.

I am not exaggerating.

You can see the information for what classes are available to you online, but it wont tell you what is required and what is optional. So he's gone to the counselors to ask specifically what he needs to graduate and they all tell him just general studies courses and direct him to look online...

The CHris Army demands to know which Mario Kart!

Also the food at my friend's SB party was legit- Chilli, Ribs, Wings, Salads, various snacks and beers and my wife's meatcakes in ground beef and cheddar or pears and brie variants!

Arc- I loved that site, and the girl who does it is same who wrote Bizenghast, which I was obsessed with for a while.

Emmers- it sounds like his school really needs to get their act together. Hopefully if enough people complain it'll change.

Anarchris- for the wii and then the original one, on the wii but it was still awesome.

FACT: Marty, the girl who wrote/created Bizenghast was at the party I was at last night.

As for choice in Karting, you went with the OG one, so good on you. THE CHRIS ARMY APPROVES!

That is the case if I stay in a residence hall, but it's cheaper and I've got more kitchen access (a diet of cafeteria food for eight months? No.) If I live in an off-campus shared house. I dunno how it works in the UK for living away from home during post-secondary school, but usually the student can either live in the school residence halls (usually getting a bedroom, small bathrom and sometimes a kitchenette, and , which may or may not be shared with another student), or off-campus in a house rented and shared by several students (usually four per house. Bedroom's your own but the rest of it's shared). If you're really rolling in dough a private apartment, but I've met a grand total of one student who had that kind of money. And Toronto rent is really steep.

I have an addiction to Mario Kart. I own it for the NES, SNES, N64, wii and 3DS. I can't play the NES version because I no longer have my NES. (Not too happy about that either)

And the fact that you know her makes you 3x more cool, just so you know.
