I'M HAVING A BIRTHDAY PARTY ON THE 26TH. KWANZAA. MY 18TH BIRTHDAY. YOU ARE INVITED IF YOU RSVP TO THIS. i don't know what i'll really be doing, but it'll probably be something simple like restaurant/hang at jeffo's house. i want this to be big - i think i had my birthday party at max's restaurant last year, but only a few people came. adam and bryan made me a box with a print out of a broken image-image in it. it was awesome, but that was like my only present. so everyone is invited. like seriously to the max. it is on the 26th, though, so i hope everyone's home for christmas.
what's been happening. i will tell you. i already beat ffx-2 since i bought it a week ago. 65 percent completed. i started doing new game plus, but i don't really feel like playing through it again. the game was good. the ending was a bit disappointing. the whole game was definitely not as good as ffx, but the long cinema sequences were rather nice.
i went down to fremont a few days ago with andy - that code took about 30 seconds to type, goddamn shift key - and met up with oniko and saku. we hung out at mgl. some guy witnessed my 3 greats on mahou no tobira and said wow duderz you need to go to our tourney on friday and i was like ok lols but i didn't go when the time came. oh, and a lot of gf and dm was played too, with tamayura and cosmic cowgirl up the wazoo and gf10's new potpourri de marmalade. tomosuke's orange lounge stuff is awesomes.
it's the second day of hanukkah - for the first night, i went to hannah's house and fooled everyone else into going too, by lying that wishnack would be coming. stupid fanboys. but good times were had anyway. we wanted to watch that never-aired jewish episode of family guy, but hannah's dvd remote was nowhere to be found. but we had real potato latkes and it was good. not to mention those little pretzel bites with peanut butter in them.
the next day i went to my mom's and we had a good ol'-fashioned second night. if you're confused, days of hanukkah start in the evening, like a lot of jewish holidays, so although it's the second day today, the second night was last night. confuzzling. my mom got me a shakespeare magnetic poetry kit which is awesome because we have a mini fridge in our dorm, and seeing that neither my roomate nor i are much of interior designers, this'll add teh spiec to our room. or not because the fridge door faces away from the room's door. but whatever it's awesome nonetheless.
i went to my high school's alumni day, for which i forgot to rsvp, but still got to talk anyway about how my former roommate is so much of a throw-up-queen. out of the 20 tl alumni, i was the only one going to ucsc, and i hope my awkward reputation as an alienated soul during high school didn't skew anyone's perspective of my current school. i have nothing but goodness to say about ucsc itself. oh, and then we were treated to caesar salad and meaty lasagna. we were like wtf the school is providing this food to us and it actually tastes good, wtf.
been hanging out at starbase with chris these last two weekends. it's fun. last week i watched the green mile and fell asleep with his roommate's ferrets crawling all over me, and then this week, andy, his friend alex, chris's friend randi, and i watched two episodes of enterprise. faith of the heart.
seeing as it's been more than a week and this is really all i have to report, you can take it that things have been slow. there's just been a lot of ps2 playing and now that i'm done with ffx-2 i hope there will be a lot of friend-hanging-out-withing in its place, because i was so bored today that i actually offered to help my parents out with yardwork, which must have been, like, the 3rd time since almost a decade since we moved into this house.
oh, and vnc is still rocking everyone's souls. through it, i performed magic on conrad's computer and got his webcam working, and i can still connect to my computer at ucsc if there's anything i need to transfer or check on. too bad i can't see how many thousands of gil i got from the items i auctioned in ffxi right before i left. i miss my tarutaru.
hit me up with comments to RSVP FOR MY FREAKING PARTY ON THE 26TH AND TO HANG OUT FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK IF YOU'RE BORED BECAUSE I CERTAINLY AM. OH, AND I HAVE NO MONEY SO MAYBE THAT'D MAKE A GOOD PRESENT. HAHA, I FORGOT TO TURN OFF CAPS LOCK. FOR SERIOUS.
