well, nothing amazing to post yet. it's late and i'm still tweaking this site, learning the ropes and whatnot. so for now, i'm just posting to post something. i have college tomorrow, and have procrastined my studies all weekend...
yeah, just like the pic says, i'm going to go improve my brainpower for 3 hours tonight (in stupid english), so this is all i can post.
i read vol. 2 of chrono crusade today, and in (lame)tribute to the manga, i'm going to post the poem/song "israfel" that rosette sang...
by Edgar Allan Poe
In Heaven a spirit doth dwell
"Whose heart-strings are a lute";
None sing so wildly well
As the angel Israfel,
And the giddy stars (so legends tell),
Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell
Of his voice, all mute.
In her highest noon,
The enamored moon
Blushes with love,
While, to listen, the red levin
(With the rapid Pleiads, even,
Which were seven,)
Pauses in Heaven.
And they say (the starry choir
And the other listening things)
That Israfeli's fire
Is owing to that lyre
By which he sits and sings-
The trembling living wire
Of those unusual strings.
But the skies that angel trod,
Where deep thoughts are a duty-
Where Love's a grown-up God-
Where the Houri glances are
Imbued with all the beauty
Which we worship in a star.
Therefore thou art not wrong,
Israfeli, who despisest
An unimpassioned song;
To thee the laurels belong,
Best bard, because the wisest!
Merrily live, and long!
The ecstasies above
With thy burning measures suit-
Thy grief, thy joy, thy hate, thy love,
With the fervor of thy lute-
Well may the stars be mute!
Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;
Our flowers are merely- flowers,
And the shadow of thy perfect bliss
Is the sunshine of ours.
If I could dwell
Hath dwelt, and he where I,
He might not sing so wildly well
A mortal melody,
While a bolder note than this might swell
From my lyre within the sky.
* And the angel Israfel, whose heart-strings are lute, and who has the sweetest vioce of all God's creatures. - KORAN
-- THE END --
okay, so i'm reading this fanfiction (about 15, in truth), and in the fight scenes there were the normal screams of:
and kagome's more appropriate "IKE!" (i mean, if i was gonna aim/shoot, i would scream, "GO, DAMY YOU!," or something to that effect).
normally, in anime/manga, we grow accustomed to the names of the attacks being screamed out while fighting (which consequentally gives the opponent a "heads-up, here it comes" warning). as otaku, it becomes part of the norm to accept these little tidbits of quirkiness that are attributed to our strange cartoony obsessions. but once in a blue moon, after scanning through a fight, i'm suddenly struck with how random and weird it is to do so. what's the point?; does it enhance the attack with a verbal incantation?! WTF?! so...i wondered: if suddenly yelling out the name of the item in question enhances it's effectiveness, why isn't it done on a daily basis? and then my mind let loose...
[early morning, in my college chem class, i sit in the back&corner seat, silently awaiting my test packet]
the packets are all handed out, and as everyone quietly begins the test--
*FWOOSH!* (that was for you, ky! XD)
the class= O_O ?_? >.> *looks at back&corner* -_-;
"oh...it's just brigette again..."
[meanwhile, the ignorant fools fail their tests, and the otaku in back has all her anime-enhanced steroid utensils working towards a "A"!]
XD...sorry. there was probably a better place to set this (and a wittier way to write it T_T); but do you get my point? while inuyasha screams "TETSUSAIGA" at the top of his lungs, a young college student unleashes her awesome anime powahz into a pencil...
*BTW--i really did take that exam today. i got so frustrated that my eyes started leaking; the teacher took pity on me and helped me with my problems! SUCKER! 'TWAS MY SECRET, DEVIOUS PLAN ALL ALONG! BWAHAHAHAHA! (can anyone say crazy tv dude from bleach? *winknudge*)
argh! it's not fair! it's the perfect weather to go run outside (which i haven't done since october, at LEAST) and i have to go to frikkin' ENGLISH tonight! T_T it's the saddest evar...
BUT!-i got my hair cut today (it feels SO much better...'twas getting shaggy and bleh), and i've been working out for about a week, so i'm feeling more alive...endorphines, how i love thee!
which brings me to my pain in the ass. no, really--my ass pains me today. i don't have a treadmill OR a stairmaster at dad's, so i just do the jumprope, and this weird cardio lunges routine. basically, i lunge down as far as possible, and then i jump up high, go back down on the other leg, and repeat. i did about 4 sets at 30 seconds each, and now my butt stings a bit...
i WILL run today, even if i have to do the stupid, boring, fresh-air-lacking treadmill thing.
gotta go! dad's coming to check on my work!

And thar you go...oh!--one more thing. Is there ANY way to get into that "inuerotica" community? 'Cuz no one in the LJ community can vouch for me (since no one knows who I am), so I'm pretty much screwed...
Also, how is life for y'all going? Good, Bad, Ugly?
If your best friend asked you OR your partner to help you conceive a child, would you consider it? How do you think it would affect your friendship and your relationship?
I really don't know if I could... I'm usually not sentimental about children, OR even having children... but to think that I would have to see my or my partner's kid and not be able to raise it, I think that would be too hard for me. It would be a huge piece of myself that I would have to watch grow up without being a parent.
What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Are you going to wear coordinating costumes with a friend or partner? Did you buy something pre-fab or make it yourself?
Well, I was just gonna maybe mish-mash every small item I've collected for Halloween and be a conglomorate type of character... like, big black cape + cat ears + eye patch + go-go boots + etc. lol. ...and that's not the weird part. My mom turned 50 this week, so my family is throwing her a surprise party on Halloween. Guess what they told her to get her to the "location"? That her friends were having a "sex toy" party! And she invited me to go! lol, AWKWARD. So, yeah. I'm spending my Halloween at a pseudo-sex party with my mom and relatives. Nice.
