"Oh, this reminds me of Passion be Not Proud. The widow, Baroness Katherine VanStone, had been livin' alone in her chateau for years. She finally says she'll see Count Cristof, which means date, but she didn't think she'd like him, him being the reincarnated spirit of Eric the Red and all. When she gave into it, though, they fell madly in love and it was beautiful until she was struck by lightning while riding bareback on the cliffs above a fjord in Scandinavia. Isn't that romantic?"
If you can guess what the above quote is from, I applaud you for your knowledge of contemporary comedies and bestow upon you the great cyber-cookie of contemporary comedy-knowing.
Hello, my dear Secret Santa! This year has hopefully been at least mostly lovely for you. It has been quite a busy year for me. After much deliberation, I have created a wishlist that hopefully will have something that appeals to you for drawing!
-Anime and Manga-
Bleach (Yoruichi Shihouin, Retsu Unohana, Sousuke Aizen, Nemu Kurotsuchi, Ulquiorra, Halibel)
Inuyasha (Sango, Shippo, Sesshomaru, Kagura, Bankotsu, Jakotsu)
Hell Girl (Ai Enma, Hone Onna, Ishimokuren)
Avalon Code (any character-- they're all visually appealing)
Kingdom Hearts (Larxene, Marluxia, Vexen)
Ace Attorney series (Phoenix Wright, Miles Edgeworth, Franziska von Karma, Manfred von Karma)

I am very, very relieved right now.
I just went back to school today after winter break, and we were in gym. It's kind of a general rule that if you have valuables, you lock them up. If you don't, it's most likely going to get stolen.
Halfway through gym, my friend went to get something from her locker, and found her iPhone missing (since she had forgotten to lock it up.) She came back and told me and my friends, and then I remembered...
My locker was almost right across from hers. It was unlocked. It had my laptop in it.
I literally threatened to hunt down the thief and choke them if I found my laptop gone before making a mad dash to the locker room.
By some miracle, not only was my precious safe, all my other valuables seemed to be there as well.
Thus, I did not have to go hunting and harm someone, but it doesn't change the fact that my friend's iPhone was stolen. If somehow the perpetrator comes across this (highly unlikely, but still,) then I want them to know that what they did was not, and never will be, cool.
I'm entering into aragorn1014's Secret Santa event! I'm looking forward to it!
Anyhow, here's my wishlist:
-Any of the four spirits from Avalon Code: Rempo, Ur, Mieli, or Neaki.
-Professor Layton and Don Paolo (from Professor Layton, obviously) engaging in an intense match... of backgammon.
-Kino and Hermes from Kino's Journey.
-My OC Marion (Reference-- it's old, but still valid) squealing happily and hugging a zombie. Said zombie has a bow and gift tag around its neck, like a present.
-A Deino snuggling with its Hydreigon mother. (Pokemon)
That's all! Good luck, my Secret Santa, and have fun with whichever you choose to do! :)
Holy schnitzels, am I in an interesting predicament.
So I'm in Gym, playing Ultimate Frisbee. It's an all-girl group at the moment, and the opposing team has the only majorly athletic girl in the class. Naturally, they're winning. Attempting to salvage some of my dignity, I'm playing my ass off trying to get in a few goals. The opposing team throws the frisbee, I run to intercept it--
--And WHAM. My foot catches on the floor and I fall, twisting my ankle in the process.
Luckily, as I discovered later at the nurses office, my ankle will probably be just fine. That's all good, but there's one little problem:
I'm in a play. With a lot of dancing. That's showing TONIGHT. I literally have an hour and fifteen minutes until I have to be there for call. I think I have every right to say that my life kind of sucks right now.
On the bright side, I get out of gym for a day, and I can limp into History first period tomorrow morning and tell my ass of a substitute "Yeah, I'm crippled now. Sympathy, mofo."
Just went to a doctor. Nothing is permanently damaged, and I should be able to do light dancing even right now. Life is good again. :)
