Hola~

I see someone noticed I was gone and alerted everyone to post again~
Still catching up~ OTL

Church was hilarious today. My cousin's daughter kept waving back at him during the kid's sermon. After hearing what the pastor had to say she was like, "I'm-a go tell Daddy."
"Oh, okay."
So she runs back. Looks at him. Runs back to the front pew. Waves again.
It was so adorable. =3=

Before I get started, HAPPY [day after your] BIRTHDAY BRI. AKA RL FRIEND WHO DOESN'T EVEN READ THIS BUT AM WISHING HAPPY BIRTHDAYS TO ANYWAY.

If anyone remembers my fair post about the birthday necklaces, then you already know what I got her. I wanted to take a photo of it, but I didn't bring my camera home this weekend. ;;
But it's really adorable~ Trust me~

Actually, upon rereading that post, I realized I didn't really go into detail about that, so STORY TIME~
Friend's family and my family meet by coincidence at fair. Adults are like, "DUDE LET'S GO LISTEN TO POLKA." Bri and I are like, "UH... NO THANKS." and go off to do our own thing and DUDE SHINY SPARKLY JEWELRY.

Being distracted by these wondrous accessories, we're like, "Oh~ That one's pretty~"
Except I don't have any money on me due to the GINORMOUS AMERICA BRACELET shown in that post, so my friend buys it. =3=
That weekend my friend calls and is all like, "I'm bored~ Fair times~? :D?" And I'm like, "FUCK YES." So we go back, and I has more cash~ After enjoying the rides, I'm like, "We can go look at necklaces again~?" And she's like, "Sure~" So we go and I want the same necklace she bought the last time, and she's like, "Butbutbut you should get that one instead." And I'm like, "Butbutbut I like that one and WE CAN BE TWINS YO."

And after like, ten minutes of arguing she's finally like, "NO YOU CAN'T BUY THAT ONE BECAUSE I GOT YOU THAT ONE FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY."

"... ... ...
Okay, which one do you want?"

And I bought her an adorable butterfly necklace~ :D

Anyway, so I gave it to her at church today~ Told her to tell Der it was from her other boyfriend.
[Der is another friend's (Dar) brother. He hangs out with us frequently and has a pretty obvious fondness for Bri. =3=
That said, they've never been official or anything, as she really just sees him as a friend.]

So she does.

"Hi Hun~ Do you like my necklace~?"
"Yes~ :D"
"I got it from my other boyfriend~"
--long pause--
"What."

*dead of laughter*

It was probably the best flat what I've ever heard.

Oh~ And anyway~ Friday noon was spent at work and then afterwords Mom and I went to Roch~
And I somehow managed to get a whole bunch of Japanese and Thai food to take back to the dorm with me tomorrow~
Also, we tried out Five Guys, since one just opened over by Target and we'd never seen one in the area before. It's supposed to be this really good burger joint, anyway. The burgers were delicious, but... really big and kind of expensive. Also, I am unimpressed with fat, fluffy fries. I prefer crispy fries, please. :|

I was 160 Friday morning. At the time I was joyous. I came home Friday night to find I was 163. OTL
IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK THAT WAY, IS IT? IS IT?

And I dragged mom to Barnes & Noble where I ACTUALLY GOT TO BUY MANGA FOR ONCE. AND MORE THAN ONE, TOO. LUCKY DAY.
Usually Mom's all like, "You don't need that."
And I'm like, "It's my money."
And she's like, "But it's all pictures."
"So?"
"You're not paying ten dollars for a picture book."
"Why the hell not?"
--Lurora is promptly dragged out of store.--

BUT NOT THIS TIME. NO NO NO~

So I got Pokemon Adventures volume 8 (That is, the one with Gold on the cover, beginning the Johto series), and Romeo X Juliet. They had an omnibus, and I was like, "I REALLY WANT TO READ THIS. AND I ONLY HAVE TO BUY ONE VOLUME INSTEAD OF KEEPING UP WITH THE SERIES. DO WANT. *7*"

Also, I picked up the new Artemis Fowl book~ I probably won't start reading it for a while yet though, since I still haven't finished Airman. ;;
I AM A LAZY COLFER FAN. FORGIVE ME.

I honestly have no idea why it's taking me so long to read Airman. I mean, I like it. I really do. It's amazing.
But LIFE WHY DO YOU GET IN MY WAY?

While we were there I saw the Scott Pilgrim series and thought about picking that up too, but of course, volumes one and two were sold out. As usual.
Why can't volume one of everything just be in stock for once? I mean, really? Really?

Also, I realize it's a bit weird for me to be starting on volume 8 of Pokemon Adventures, but... IT'S BEGINNING JOHTO. And also, again, VOLUME ONE AND TWO WERE SOLD OUT. *facepalm*
Good thing I like second gen more than first gen, or I'd be spectacularly pissed.
Though I was surprised to see Pokemon Adventures there at all, really. It looks like Viz is re-releasing the series. The back advertisements say volume 9 is coming out October 2010, and I was like, "Didn't it already...? DUDE IT'S COMING OUT AGAIN. AGAIN. AGAIN I SAY, AGAIN. :D"

So I'm probably going to order that from the nerd store in Winland. Also, going to order the Axis Powers Hetalia manga when it's released later this month. I already attempted to order Lucky Star volume 1, but it seems, once again, it's sold out. They said they'd call me when they got it in, and it's been like, two weeks. =A=;;

Anyway, I'll take pictures of my haul when I get back to school and get my camera. The roommate's been better about locking the door so I felt I could trust it there. =3=

Oh~ And before I leave, since I promised~
Here's your requested Strength Arcana, [livejournal.com profile] kuroshin ~ I hope it's at least somewhat close to what you had in mind~ XD;;

Yeah, definitely what I had in mind! Hmm, I was thinking of something, can you do lamination or something like that? I was thinking of a mini-strength arcana card...

But regardless, you are such an awesome person! Thanks so much! :D

Hm~ Maybe. I think there's a store downtown that does that. =3=
Or actually, there might be somewhere on campus that does that too, but I don't know where that'd be. I might have to do some exploring~
And have it mailed then too?

Though it'll take at least a week to get it laminated, since... well... it's currently at home. ._.
Things are less likely to get ruined there. *nervous laugh*

That's okay! I was thinking of having a mini strength card that could fit inside my wallet so I can always have it with me, having your drawing on the front and having this art on the back. Kinda like a wallet sized tarot card.

Hm~ Then wouldn't it be best to print out both pictures at wallet-size and then laminate them together?

Wouldn't it be more practical to do that on your end, assuming you have a decent printer and a place nearby that laminates?

I could do it on my end too, but I get the feeling the postage to send it that far would cost more than the actual lamination itself. ._.
Unless you have some ridiculously high lamination tax over there. x.x;;

Hm, Okay then, no sweat. Although I'd rather drop the idea of the laminated thing already. The fare to the lamination center outweighs the lamination cost itself and I'd have to starve myself at lunch for this. I'd rather get an original tarot deck. LOL.

My practicality rules my judgment.

From: [identity profile] lurora.livejournal.com
Well, I do like the idea. =3=
I dunno, I'll see how much it costs and get back to you.

Though I'll have to do some exploration and actually find the post office in this town. But dammit, if I can find a churro I can find a post office.
