Okay so, the new year?  
Going strong with just a few noteworthy bumps in the road. :)

So this year I spent New Year's with the boyfriend. The original intention was a sorta-kinda-maybe idea to go to a party one of his friends was having. It was a potluck where you would bring in a food and a corresponding drink. I wanted to bring cookies and a carton of cream. :D (And then I'd bring coffee and sugar to go with the cream, but that's an aside.)

But as it was last minute, and we were lazy, we kinda went "...meh" near to the end and instead opted for staying home. We broke out the candles for eating by candlelight, and proceeded to eat our candlelit bowls of noodles. :) Oho, don't you laugh, they were deliciousness.

Post-dinner pastimes included us being the nerds that we are, and playing Killing Floor with other people online who also didn't have any grand epic plans to get drunk off their asses (hey, it affects your aim!). At about 11:55, we glance at the clock and go "hoshit time to go!" and hauled ass back upstairs to begin on setting up the celebrations. (This included one bottle of white wine, and me with my laptop with its clock.) At t-10seconds and counting, I, of course, started counting down. The events unfolded something like this:

Steph: ...5...4...3...
Dan: *laughs at Steph and comes closer*
Steph: ...2...1...YAY~!!! *flails around*
Dan: D: You were supposed to kiss me at midnight!
Steph: ...oh. Okay! *MUAH*

Not quite the same. But all that countdown and no cheering? Pfffff, I like my way better. :D

And then we went back to playing games. I do believe there were monkeys involved and balloons that were in dire need of popping. :)

This isn't quite new news, but it's new enough that I've only now come up with the energy of taking pictures... I have a new Sephiroth to join the clan, yay!! In honor of this great event, he would like to offer you some pie.

I almost didn't buy him but but but... that wing. *o* Oh, I couldn't resist.

I don't know where or when since it's seldom that I actually go about doing a full restart on my laptop. But last night, 'twas done, and I booted it back up to see a fake antivirus program popping up to fuck with me. D:

It took most of today to figure out how to get rid of it, and that involved messing around in Safe Mode which I, in my infinite lacking of wisdom, am not all that practiced in working with. But solve it I did, and after several hours of double-checking, it seems all is well once more. Hopefully. Yes. Phew.

In other news: grades from last term finally got posted up today, which is fail since the new term starts on Monday and instructors were to issue marks at most a week after classes ended. Way to be laaaazy. ;p My Buffy season 6 is finally on its way and I'm hoping for its arrival any day now. *o* TV and downloads are all well and good but when I love something, I feel its only right to support it by buying it. Y-you need not argue the logic behind this, Ronsen has tried many many times. My magpie tendencies will never change. ;o;

Oh but I don't. I mean that I put it on standby and hibernate, not on all the time. :)

And why is this?

That sounds great. XD I stayed home and was more excited about Star Trek coming on TV
Stephanie: oooooooooooooohhhhhh!!mirroredsakura on January 7th, 2010 07:16 am (UTC)
;p Star Trek the show Star Trek or Star Trek the movie Star Trek? :D

I just finished it for the first time a couple days ago... everything in there is so shiny new and... shiny! Like if Mac made spaceship interiors. ^^
Hareimachang on January 7th, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)
lol The show. The next generation. :)

Although, I do enjoy the movie, and own it.

Ahahah. I'm sure Mac must have tried to sue them for being too close to the trademark 'mac look'.

Hahah I see... I never could get into it, the same reason I could never really do the same with Doctor Who. D: I always want to start right from the very beginning, and yet in both cases, the very beginning makes it seem like such a daunting task... ^^;

Same thing as me. I've just always caught an episode here and there of TNG and pretty soon, I wanted to see more. No need to have a huge understanding of the very first one from the 60'sish era because this one takes place in the future. It's in the same universe but it doesn't really go into the story line of the other.

My first thought was, "would you like dis pie?"

And I proceeded to laugh myself out of my chair because I think I'm clever sometimes.

;p I myself had to try very very hard to refrain from saying the exact same thing. :) It's his own fault for coming with a single right graspy hand. It demanded something to hold, and all I had that would do were Re-ment pies. :)

Of course, the only reason he was designed with that hand was specifically for photogenic pear/pear-like object holding.

eee I love KH Seph *A* all except for his hair, it kind of weirds me out. I get being in perpetual wind an everything, but the way it connects to the back of his head. but that WING is awesome, the joints on Cloud and Seph's KH wings are so cool ;A;)
Stephanie: my kind of cactuarmirroredsakura on January 8th, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
I do like how it's all pretty and translucent at the tips, but I'm in full agreement about right at the back of his head where it's all bundled up neatly just to show off the unpainted joint he's got in place of a neck. What bugs me a little is how everything keeps banging into everything else--his hair into his wing, the splayed-out coattails and the stand...

I'm of the opinion that they did that last on purpose so that he's got to stand there with his crotch stuck out at an odd angle, despite how I've wedged the back of the stand in between the slits of his coat. Behold and despair!
