Oh, LJ, as much as I'd love to throw oodles of money at you, your poor business decisions continue to make it so very, very difficult. :( So back to six icons, BAAAW. My account always has the worst timing with running out.

In other news, I really need to finish that Sylar app. And um. I'm wondering whether I should try to sleep for a couple of hours before my class or just stay up the whole night and sleep after I return from my class. I think I'll sleep, since then I'll have to sleep less in the afternoon, which means more time in the evening to (possibly) hang out with an LA-returning Court!

Didn't get to play much Brawl today. BUT I THINK I WILL TOMORROW. I need to set up dates with you guys on the wifi~ <3 Also, I'm ttly downloading Star Fox 64 once I have a Gamecube controller and once my Wii accepts my credit card number as valid. D8

But yeah. Naptime now.

OMG BRAWL WIFI.

See, I can't share my Wii friends code with all of you because although I have wifi at my house, I have like the ONE kind of Netgear router that the Wii is incompatible with. So no internet battles for me until I can get a new one. :(

HOWEVER, today I went over to [livejournal.com profile] evildrew's and I was able to experience online battling for the first time! We both played against [livejournal.com profile] bondofflame who kicked our asses which was VERRAY FUN even though I got in third place most of time. DX But then we did Spectator stuff and I played against three random people AND I WON! :D

...SEE THIS IS ALL NOTHING TO YOU WIFI PEOPLE but I have to cherish what wifi times I have since I can't do them at home. >_>

Anyway, I've pretty much realized that my new main is Snake, since although I didn't want to use him when everyone else is probably going to... well, whenever I play as him, I tend to win, and whenever I don't play as him, I tend to lose. SO I GUESS I GOTTA GO WITH THE FLOW. (Not that I mind.)

Anyway, although I'd like to blame my suck on my wiimote-using, I don't want to be a bitch and although it's part of the problem, most of it is probably me being bad. SO. I WILL SAY THAT I NEED TO PRACTICE PRACTICE AND GET GOOD. >:[ AND I WILL. MAYBE.

But yeah. Snaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake~ 8DDD I have to come up with some personalized taunts for him if I ever get my wifi working. <3 Speaking of which, LEAVE YOUR FRIEND CODES HERE so I can add them once I uh... do that? :D

Also, I should really finish my Sylar app this weekend, since after that, my time's gonna be sucked up by Court coming here and working on an English paper. ;;

My life has been sucked up by YOU-KNOW-WHAT as of late. I swear to god, every time I realize I'm looking at/playing as Solid Snake, I feel like I'm in some sort of wonderful, cracked-out dream that I'm going to wake up from any moment. Sonic doesn't help much.

Beat Subspace Emissary and I'm working on the events and challenges now. The cinemas were gorgeous and the whole thing was total nonsense but very cute. <3 DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO GET SCREENCAPS FOR THE WHOLE THING? 8D;

UHHHHHHHH I know everyone and their brother is gonna try to get good at Snake but GODDAMMIT so will I. I'm already getting kinda good! ....Kinda. Also, my brother is being a little bitch about Smash Bros. in general. LONG STORY. DON'T WANT TO GO INTO IT. :X I've been having to play with the wiimote+nunchaku because I can't find any of my Gamecube controllers, which means I have to jump with my left hand and I can't shield for crap. DDD: Plus, it's cramping the hell out of my hands with the repeated C and A-mashing instead of wiimote-wagging.

Um um um um. Doing school and stuff. Parking is still ridiculous (I waited around a LITERAL HOUR to get a spot the other day), BUT I've been taking the bus. And.... stuff.

NEED TO FINISH MY SYLAR APP. MWA HA HA HA.

Edit: WOOOOO UNLOCKED ALL THE CHARACTERS HELLS YYEEAAHHHH

Also, I think Max gave her best Heroes commentary when we watched the last few episodes of S1 in an all-nighter marathon the other day:

Scene: Nathan contemplating going darkside in his mansion office or wtfever.

Max: ::Out of nowhere.:: Man, he has a nice ass.
Me: .....PFFFFFTHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Max: WHAT, IT'S NOT MY FAULT HE WEARS PANTS LIKE THAT

Been kind of lively lately with.... life! Or something.

My dad is leaving his job as director of Environmental and Public Works in the middle of March, which is really weird considering he's been working for the City of Santa Monica for 25 years. He's been having big and small parties thrown for him by his bosses/co-workers/employees these past couple of weeks, the last of which was a big bash at this shi-shi restaurant where he got some really nice gifts and really nice speeches. To give some perspective: my dad's a pretty big environmentalist and has spent most of those 25 years working to get the city to change things to help lessen its environmental impact on the ocean and air. And though, as one of the speakers jokingly pointed out, he drives a very gas-efficient Ford Mustang and plays the very environmental sport of golf, he really has worked long and hard to achieve that goal, and even now, is moving to a new job with an environmentalist, non-profit organization. The downside is he's going to have to commute to Irvine, but his new employers are paying him extra to cover the cost of a natural gas car that he can use to breeze through the car pool lane (hopefully). In any case, I'm proud of him, though it's still weird he won't be working there anymore.

Rant about SMC parking and workshop stupidity. )

Whatever, I'm just going to have my mom drop me off in the morning from now on and take the bus back.

BUT HAPPIER THINGS: On the video game front, I've been playing lots of Pokémon and I beat the Elite Four and the Champion on my first try! YAAAAY! Time for the Pal Park and filling up the National Dex, which is.... tough considering I don't have any GBA Pokémon games. But my brother does. So I guess I'll steal that.

ALSO

BRAWL MIDNIGHT RELEASE
TONIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT
and I hope to god they DID change my pre-order to Brawl instead of Galaxy. >:[ ....OKAY CALLED THEM and they did. AWESOME.

OH and got ahold of Max and we've caught up on Supernatural and she's watched more Heroes.

Her reactions! Spoilers for most recent Spn episodes and towards the end of Heroes S1. )

As far as other Heroes things, I need to work on the meme that [livejournal.com profile] cacodaemonia put up. And on the [livejournal.com profile] damned front, I AM SO SO SAD THAT [livejournal.com profile] roseisrain DROPPED CLAIRE BUT I AM ALSO SO SO HAPPY THAT [livejournal.com profile] chaneystarr WILL BE APPING HER! EEEEEEE!!! <3333

And. I need to work on my Sylar app. >:)

....AND CAN THERE BE ANY MORE TAGS ON THIS ENTRY JESUS.

Went flying with Andrew last night. LA lights at night are gorgeous. <3 And then we got Ben & Jerry's and watched some Sunny, which we'll hopefully continue with tonight as we wait for Brawl. :D

...APPARENTLY THERE CAN BE MORE TAGS.
