So, I'm not expecting anyone to read this, just rambling.
I got my tonsils out yesterday..... yaaayyyyyy Brilliant idea for a 22 year old. But it's not my fault, my pediatricians could be a bit dense. I went in there for 8 years complaining about a swollen or throat (literally, my throat just swelled up one day and never wetnt down) and allergies. But the only thing she ever did was try to diagnose me with depression. It was murder trying to talk to her about anything else. Now, the first time I see a different doctor they send me to an allergy specialist and set an appointment with an ENT. It seems I'm allergic to the State of New York. I learnt that through the 50 allergen scratch test. 8D
Anywho. My throat hurts. But I'm used to that. I just won't be talking too much for a while. I yelled at the dog this morning. Should not have done that. (Oh, yah. We got a dog. I'll put some pictures up on The Roadhouse.) They gave stuff to take for the pain, but that's the problem. I was up till 1 last night vomiting. I fasted all day so it was mostly blood and stomach acid. That really hurt. I haven't done that in 12 years, so I am a complete sissy when it comes to nausea and such. Now, it seems people throw up after getting their tonsils out, but what I want to know: is it from the anesthesia or the medicine? Because the stuff they gave me is highly regulated, like, Wal-Mart is my pharmasist (how evil, I know) and they didn't carry it because it was so regulated. If that's not reason enough to be afraid of it, they said it would make me queezy, but it might be what's making me sick. But it is going to start hurting like crud if I don't take it again soon. Gaahhhh. I'm so sad now.So if someone does read this that has had their tonsils out, tell me if you threw up afterwards and why you think that is. Write 2 to 3 paragraphs. Ok. I just took it again and now I feel sick. So I'm gonna see which princess I am! Which princess pukes alot?....

Wow. Didn't see that coming. At least she has the best Prince.
So, is anyone else's backroom not showing up? Everything else seems to work, just not my backroom. And I'm not going to know if anyone answers this because my reply alerts are in my backroom.
I wanna cake. And ice cream. And if Dean were here I could probably have both along with a pie. oh, yah. I have such a beach body. BP I hate swimsuits. And guys. who came up the idea that the females are the ones that need to beautiful, sexy, slim and who the crud decided we should wear bikinis?! A guy! That's who. Well I will never ever wear a bikini in public, even if I ever do get into shape. Because I have standards and dignity. Ha. You know, I've heard of studies, and I believe them, that the majority of women actually dress up for other women. It's like a competition. Guys are just proving trinkets. Creepy, huh? Every other species on Earth does it the other way around. The guys are the ones that are supposed to look good all the time.
So, I'm in the Outer Banks, NC. Haven't been in the water yet. But they do have Dairy Queens here. there are, I think, maybe two DQs in all of NY. And they are all far away from me. So I want ice cream. Miss you, Dean. And Shoal, my merboyfriend from last time. Gotta find some merbait so I can find him again.
Operation HEAD PIGEONS has made a bit of headway against Nickelodeon.
For those of you who don't know, Operation Head Pigeons is an organization for the continuation of the Invader Zim series. In other word, it's a bunch of people on Facebook who set dates and then all call the Nick studios telling them how much they love Invader Zim. Phone, email, letters, all harrassing Nickelodeon until they agree to put Invader Zim back on with new episodes. Well, Nickelodeon has agreed to a test.
There is a new DVD being released on Feb. 22 that is now available for pre-order. It is a Best Of Zim DVD called Operation: DOOM. Nick says that if this DVD sells well, they will give us 2 new seasons of Invader ZIM! I have also heard that this is their last offer. If this doesn't make it, Zim will probably have no hope of coming back. This DVD is available for $12 to $16.
Now, I have seen little to no publicity and promotion of this, meaning it's up to the fans to tell other fans that it is out there. Even if you own the series already, or have every episode memorized, or have no idea what I am talking about, this DVD needs to sell. Buy it for a gift, for yourself, and/or to throw at Nickelodeon Network executives. New ZIM. New GIR. New DIB. New GAZ. New Professor MEMBRANE. New TALLEST. New DOOM. YAY.
Okay. So apparently after Symphonia 2 didn't sell as well as previous Tales games in America, Namco got their feeling hurt and now they think translating games for us is a waste of resources. Now, I may have no idea what I am talking about, but the fact still stands that they haven't brought a Tales to America in 2 years.
What I want to know is if a petition were to be drawn up, who would sign it? How many? It would be proving that there is still a hefty demand for their merchandise in the States, maybe throwing in points like increased marketing for the US if they feel they're not selling enough. Advertising is essential for the success of any product, anywhere and we are getting none. Tales of Vesperia for Xbox only (and I use the term loosely) sold 33,000 copies in the first 4 day in America because we had NO advertising for it. The only people that know when new games exist are the ones with the time and resources to stalk the Namco sites. To the rest of the world its "A new Japanese video game! Play it......... why aren't you playing it?" Altogether, Vesperia 360 has reportedly sold 251,449 copies, so far, in english. And they are still refusing to give us the PS3 Additional content version of this game or even The First Strike movie. (Or The Empty Mask mangas, Raven's canon backstory. Sidenote: if anyone knows Japanese and would be willing to translate those for me I would be extrememly happy.) Some Americans have imported the PS3 Vesperia, but the majority of them have no idea what anyone is saying when they play them. I own the 360 and I know I would buy the PS3 if it were translated. Thousands would. We are Americans! No matter how much money we do or don't have we are always willing to spend it. Sad for us, but good for them, and if it makes us happy, they should take advantage of that. We are talking Graces, World, Xillia, Hearts, everything since Symphonia 2. Our companies are willing, Our voice actors are actually asking for it, and the fans have been waiting for years. We need to make them realize that this would be just as good for them, if not waaaayyyy better, as it would be for us.
So, any extra points? Who would sign such a petition? Any better, more active means to this goal? Would anyone be opposed to a mention of multiplayer preference for future games? etc...
So, my only real resolution this year was to get awesome healthy and in shape. So what did I do on New Years Day? I got sick. Still sick. Just enough to not want to do anything but still feel like I'm wasting my time not doing anything.
Anyway, we were looking up Disney songs on Youtube in their "Native" languages. Because. So I was looking at a few yesterday: Beauty and the Beast's Bonjour in french, Hercules' Won't Say in Love in Greek... It's fun. Most of the time I do prefer ourr voice actors to theirs, for some reason all the heroes forein voices sound kinda sissy. Even our Gaston sounds better. And Frollo, definately. I did grow up with them, though. And the direct lyric translation can be very interesting. Like, Meg's last lines are something like, "I won't say it, get off my case. I won't it. At least oud loud, I won't say I'm in love." In Greek it's something like, "He's not it, I don't want him. He's not it, I don't need him. But he is sweet, the god of my heart." And the different translation for Hellfire? That's such a potent song, you get some really interesting messages there. I think it was Icelandic that was pretty blatent.
Anyway again. I also looked up Kiss the Girl. And I haven't watched this film for many many years. But there are things that you don't catch when you're young that make it so much better. This song, for instance? We've all already decided that Prince Eric is the best Disney prince/hero/love interest yet. I mean, he's the only one that ever really does anything! Aurora's Phillip: sure he fights a dragon, but not without three fairy's holding his hand the entire way. And the falling in love part? "I hear a strange voice in the middle of the woods. A crazy girl dancing with bunnies? But she's pretty! Singing in the woods! All for that!" and just joins in. Cinderella's Prince (I keep wanting to call him philip too. Name anyone?): The biggest thing he did was ignore his dad. Then "Oh no. Guess I'm going to have to try this shoe on every single pretty girl in the kingdom." Belle's Beast/Adam: Brat to Girly man. By the time it was done, his eyelashes were longer, his lips fuller, and his voice higher than hers. At least he has a nice singing voice. But he locked her up, didn't do anything too heroic and it was all his fault anyway. Aladdin: Fun kid, but a complete brat. He is a riffraff, he always was. And that's fine, so is Jasmine. But not quite what we're looking for. Plus, again didn't do anything huge without a genie and or flying carpet. Mulan's captain Shang: Good hearted guy, but SUUUCCHHHH a GUY! Little bit thick. Had to struggle between honor and life. A few times. Hercules: Yah.... Simple guy with some serious issues. And man, when he gets moody he gets MOODY. Plus, part god, and when he really did risk his life, he already jumped before Hades said he would die, not sure if that counts. Peter Pan: Love him but skipping for obvious reasons. XD Prince Naveen: Sorry Deanie. You are an utterly hopeless romantic when it comes to insecure brats, but again. Hopefully obvious reasons. John Smith: Oh, what a guy. And in the same way as Shang, which is not a good one. Still, chose him over Ralphe any day.
And I'm not even going to start on Snow White's prince. coughnecrophiliacough.
Anyone I'm missing?
Eric, though. This 18 year old guy is a gentleman, he's patient, he's open, understanding, I mean Ariel was pretty awkward there for a good while. And his dog finds some aparently crazy, mute, ragety girl playing in the tidepools, who clings on to him the first chance she gets and he's just like, "Whoaa there... Why don't we find you some clothes. And... you can stay at my castle, I guess. Cause obviously no one else wants you." Then this mute girl is overshaddowed by this supposedly quite seductive temptress and she still has to enchant him to get him away from Ariel. And then he takes the whole mermaid without even blinking and dives into the ocean with a humongouslyhugely octopus witch to do whatever it is he can to help. Which just happens to be steering (on his own) a sunken ship into the humpngouslyhugely big octopus witch! If that's not awesome, you tell me what is. Plus, he still marries the crazy mermaid knowing that King Tritant is sitting right there watching! He is a very large, ver powerful, very scary guy who controls the entire ocean of Eric's SEASIDE, OCEAN-DEPENDANT kingdom. Now he's his father in law. That is bravery.
But the best part is Eric's behavior during "Kiss the Girl". I urge you to watch it. The entire time he's trying to be a gentleman to this strange gilr who doesn't know how to act in a dress, and almost crashes his carrage. During the song sequence Ariel is obviously losing her patience. She is ready, willing and waiting and Eric just looks slightly terrified! At :50 Ariel's completely ready to go but Eric kinda freaks out and pulls real quick at the last second, looking nervous, embaressed, and regretful. Then at the end when they finally go for it, again, Ariel is set, but Eric looks terrified! She's all in position and he looks like he has to really concentrate on ewhat he's doing. So, Eric is this 18 year old prince that knows responsibilities and manners, wanders around doing all these things, sailing, hiking, music, and everything. But he doesn't seem like he has all that much experience around girls. It's kinda adorable. XD I just never noticed that before.
And if any of you want, this is it in It's native Danish, seeming as The Little Marmaid is originally a Danish tale. And I'm part Danish! Nothing to do with anything but had to throw that in.
Ok. I love to analyze and Disney can be so much more fun so I thought I'd share that. This was way more than I intended so sorry about ranting.
DUDE! I totally just realized this just now. Sebastin is kinda creepy. When taking all things into consideration:
-A Jamaican crab in the seas of Scandinavia
-Humans can't understand animals. Yet Sabastion still tells Eric Ariel's name.
-Human's can't understand anilmals, but Sabastion still manages to completely "influence" Eric with this song. The lyrics near the end being, "Float along and listen to the song. Song say Kiss the girl. Music play. Do what the music say, you gotta kiss the girl."
-Sebastion is not King Trinant's (= to King Neptune or Poseidon)right hand man for no reason.
CONCLUSION: Sebastion is totally a little voodoo crab! He's got enchantments all of his own! He's a hoodoo wizard. Ok. Now I am done.
