I went to Sean and Michael’s yesterday, and Jaime was also over there. I saw Silent Hill downpour, and so far I’m not really a fan. I just saw the same female enemy everywhere, and the way you fought seemed pretty tedious with attack, block, attack, block.. There was a ton of frame rate drops too. Also I would have liked if you could just press start and save instead of auto saving all over the place, and if they had a resident evil storage box and small inventory for weapons.. Jaime said it would be cool if you could have two weapons in each hand to fight too. idk the game doesn’t look very good so far, and the thing that irked me the most was making a choice, but it not impacting the current story at all. I think the choices just effect the final ending..
I’m still not sure if I’m going to get the hd Silent Hill remake, because I don’t have the games on ps2.. My ps2 has been kind of wonky to work with, so it makes more sense to buy it for ps3. Though I don’t think they are giving us the old audio track for silent hill 3, and it’s just going to be so distracting the whole time.. Especially because Vincent is one of my favourite Silent Hill characters, and what if he has a weird monotone or screechy voice now.. Ew.
I was really excited because I bought the 2011 Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in a bluray and dvd combo yesterday. So we ended up watching that together. Though I’m pretty disappointed right now because there were a whole bunch of scenes we saw in the theatre that weren’t in the movie on the blu ray.. I’ve never had that happen to me before. I’ve been looking all around on google, but no one has really said anything about it. I also couldn’t find an extended option at the starting menu or deleted scenes in the extras unless it’s called something else.. So if I’m not missing something, I think everyone would rather have an edition that’s extended with stuff that didn’t make it into the theatre put in, instead of cut down out of the gate.. I’m kind of thinking they put out this combo and later on they’ll put out an “uncut” version just to sell it again..
Sean and Michael didn’t want to watch Drive unfortunately.. So Michael picked the movie Frailty. It was basically about a guy going into the FBI to tell them his brother was the serial killer they’re looking for, and he tells him about what happened when they were kids living with their father who was told by god to kill people/ demons. Sean and Michael both ended up falling asleep though. The movie was just okay imo, and the ending was kind of hokey..
I also got my glittery bone barrettes from etsy today, but they feel rubbery and a little tacky not like hard plastic like I had thought they would be. I think they’re probably still wearable, just more fragile than I thought. I also bought asuka’s evangelion hair clips, so hopefully they’ll come soon.
Also tumblr gear on my phone hasn’t been working lately, so I guess no more being a tumblr weirdo when I’m out and waiting around. I need to find some cool paid apps for my phone, since I got an itunes card for christmas and still have $22 on it.
I haven’t been feeling well again for a while, so I haven’t really done too much.. Sunday night at 4AM Sean showed up at my house a little drunk after getting in a fight with Michael, because when Michael was away this weekend Sean hung out with this girl he and I both hate named Sonia. Things seem okay between them now though, but my mum says Sean and Michael are like oil and water. It was kind of funny when he came over too since he was so loud and yelled randomly “I figured I’d come over because I bet Al is with a BITCH” “Al’s sleeping in the other room” Sean bolts outside, haha.
Also that night Sean, Michael, and Coral went to the dickens drinking, and for a 2nd time Coral drank way too much and was sick all over. I feel bad for her, but at the same time I kind of don’t understand how it hasn’t clicked in her head that she shouldn’t drink so much when they go out together. She says “you know I’m a champ and can handle everything” and the next morning you’re mopping up the puke and piss.. Hopefully 3rd sleep over’s the charm, because she’s a nice girl. Just not nice enough to really want to babysit and makes me not want to drink and have anyone sleep over at my place.
I went over there the next day and we all played a ton of Soul Calibur V. People sure love to use Nightmare and Maxi..
Jaime eventually came over showing off her new shoes that turned out to be bowling shoes she stole last time she went glow in the dark bowling. I was kind of surprised because they didn’t look like normal bowling shoes and were gold. Those guys have become little robbers lately, since they’ve been taking beer steins and even a pitcher from the dickens, and now some bowling shoes.. I have one of those steins on my desk right now and I’m kind of hoping they’ll bring some more my way, haha.
After Coral and Jaime headed home, I really wanted to watch the movie Drive. Though Sean and Michael ended up falling asleep, so I didn’t get to finish the movie. It was getting so good too. So I need to figure out how to stream or get movies from my computer onto my hd tv, since I hate watching movies on my little computer screen in my computer chair. Though from what I watched so far Drive seems like a movie I’ll probably end up buying.
I had a pretty busy day running around all over the place.. Al and I drove back over to Hamilton to get my braces off, though now I have an annoying retainer on the bottom that I can’t wait to chuck in the trash.
Al wanted me to pay off my credit card bills and posters that were back from framing, though I didn’t bring my purse with me so obviously they wouldn’t let me cash my checks with no ID or anything. So we crossed the street into the mall to pick up my posters anyway and I randomly bought a little batman usb (that kind of looks like a conehead) in there. Was a little weird how a photo developing place had that, but I guess who doesn’t love batman (they also had some star wars ones too). The way home was a little bit annoying though, since we were driving in the mercedes instead of the truck and I had to literally put the poster on my head because it wouldn’t fit any other way.. We went over to the bank closer to our house, paid all the bills right after dropping the posters off, and from there we decided to head over to mother tucker’s.
It was Al’s 56th birthday, so they offer a free meal at mother tucker’s and I think the mandarin also does that. Unfortunately they didn’t have as much food/ variety as when I went when I was younger, and I wasn’t a fan of most of the food there since it was really rich or greasy. Though I had a really great coconut smoothie. Also they gave us a rickety table against the wall that was really close beside another table with another family that was celebrating a birthday too.. Al was telling them that march 5th was the day of heaven and hell, and the woman celebrating her birthday said “well this sure is hell” and just walked away, haha.
After all of that Sean and Michael got back home from eating out at August 8 that serves a lot of fresh sushi.. (I think most of my posts have been about Sean and Michael eating sushi, haha.) Sean’s mum was also over at the house visiting, and her boyfriend had just bought a huge truck out of jane and finch that she hates, since it’s a tank to drive and a gas guzzler. I can relate, since I’ve tried to drive Al’s pick up truck before in an empty parking lot and I could not turn the thing around or park it to save my life if there were other cars.
Also Sean mentioned that the Nana stole close to $3000 dollars from his account without asking, so he doesn’t know what to do in April when him and Michael were planning on getting an apartment.. (either the building my mum lives in or a building close to the apartment I used to live in) Sean’s mum said “you know what all that money went to? Kate Middleton garbage” and I wouldn’t be surprised either because the nana’s house is basically a shrine of the royal family and a giant doll house.. On top of that the nana either isn’t keeping track or is purposefully saying that they haven’t paid rent money that they have already paid her.. Sean’s mum also said when she used to live in the same house and in the same one room Sean and Michael are staying in now with the nana that she ended up stealing all her tax rebate, benefits, and some of the baby bonus money on top of getting about 13k out of her.. So I’m so surprised that she still has Sean and her daughter still in her life, because I cut Al’s parents completely out of my life and I would do the same if the nana was related to me.. I hope that they can move out soon somehow.
Anyway we ended up playing a little bit of Soul Calibur 5, before watching Ghost World and Laputa. It was kind of funny because Sean hated Ghost world and Michael doesn’t like anime and most cartoons. Later on Michael ended up ordering a pizza online that he had ordered before with the same toppings, though unfortunately they messed up when making it this time because Michael’s half was suppose to have hot sauce and all these spicy things and the other half was suppose to be mild pizza stuff, but they made the entire pizza an inferno.. Sean and me couldn’t even eat it, haha.
Unfortunately Sean forgot that he had a shift the next day and literally was going to get about 3 hours sleep before heading into work. I have no idea how everyone I know can do that, since I sure can’t go on no sleep.
I went to the orthodontist today in Hamilton and thankfully next visit I’ll have my bottom braces off for the 2nd time. Though unfortunately I have one more dental surgery coming up, and about 6-8 months waiting for everything to heal until everything is finally done after all these years of dental visits between 3 people.. 4 if you count my actual dentist.
Though Al and I went all over the place today looking at stuff to buy for the house, and the biggest shock, grocery shopping without a tantrum from him.. I picked up some mirrors that I wanted back when I went to ikea before christmas, and a small green table lamp. Also from the dollar store I got some fake tea light candles and this tie or coat rack thing that I’m using for necklaces.. Unfortunately it was too wide for my closet door, and I don’t have a door to my bedroom, so I just put it on my dresser for now..
Before that we looked at a couple furniture stores for couches for me. Though for what ever reason Al took me into a really high end store first, so looking at the stores after was kind of like “yeah, this kind of sucks compared to the one I liked in the other store..” He wants to take me into Mississauga before making a final purchase here where I live, but hopefully I’ll get two couches for the basement.
I really want to make the basement half way decent, because I hate seeing the hell of a mess it is right now.. I don’t even want to paint or anything like that anymore, I just want to throw down some sticker tile, get two couches, put some framed pictures up, and move all that junk out of there.. Hopefully that picture will become a before shot really soon, since it drives me crazy.
I had a good Friday night, but at the same time I’m kicking myself over it. I was running around with Sean and Mike doing errands for the Nana at the mall. Afterwards we walked over to the LCBO, and I waited outside with all the boxes we had to get back to the Nana, since I didn’t want them to give me a hard time on my birth certificate/ not having photo ID. So I sent them in to get that crystal head vodka, and assumed it came with the shot glasses and everything when they told me it came to $60. Nope. A 26er of vodka for $60, eugh.. I was hoping they’d pitch $20 to me to make it not as heart sinking as well, but they spent a lot of cab fare for 3 cab rides that night. Also I ended up spending another $10 on 3L of chase at a gas station. Burlington is really becoming expensive, bleh. Luckily I had fun at Mike’s beatle shrine of a house, and that kind of distracted me on blowing all my money.. Also he had a little kitten there named Lilian, but unfortunately she was too scared to let anyone pet her. She snuck around everyone all night and if anyone moved she’d bolt out of the room. Michael eventually came over and we ordered some pizza. Around probably 6 or 7AM everyone was nodding off, so we had to shake Michael awake to get a cab back to Sean’s house and I ended up walking home in the snow. I was surprised how much there was, since my feet were completely getting buried.
Anyway I had a good night, though I really need to try and hold onto my money more since I wanted to spend $40 and end up spending $70.. It’s so hard to keep money in my wallet, haha
Today I put together the 2nd bookcase I got to match my other one I had for a little while, and I felt so much better after seeing the final result. Everything used to be really cluttered together and look kind of messy, but now I have a ton of space for more books or movies. I have a feeling I’ll probably go back to the shelves a few times and rearrange everything though; you can probably find one change already just between pictures.
Also I finally found out what this skull bottle and shot glass set was called, and I’m a little obsessed with trying to get it.. Think it’s kind of funny that I just want the bottle before the alcohol inside, because I’m not as big on vodka, since I usually reach for rum or whiskey. Though I bet Michael can think up some really good drinks, because the first time I ever met him we drank vodka together and another time everyone was making shots I’ve never even heard of before. So I really hope they have this gift set in my city I’m even tempted to buy two, haha
My 21st birthday was on January 25th, and I feel like I haven’t changed for years aside from what I wear. I have a feeling I’ll probably keep feeling like this, and most likely will end up like one of those 50 year olds that dress like they’re 16, haha. Hopefully I won’t care what other people think though and just do what I like in the moment.
It isn’t really a new years resolution, but more like goal I want to have through my life to try and just do what I want to more. My biggest issue is that I’m so worried about judgement from my family the most, like if I want to dye my hair pink I know they’ll either joke around or say “oh honestly, why did you ruin your hair” or with tattoos they’d freak right out.. So I really need to just do it when I get the money and try not to worry as much.
Unfortunately my birthday plans with my best friend Sean didn’t work out yet, since I was really sick. He wanted to take me to Playdium, which is basically a big arcade with a bar and grill. drunken gaming, oh yeah~ Hopefully this weekend or some other time soon we can cash that rain check. I did end up going to Mandarin for lunch with him. Though I didn’t eat much and had to go home about an hour afterwards to die for a few days in bed, which made me feel really bad. Since I felt like I was wasting his money, but at least he enjoyed his mountain of sushi, and a bunch of the deserts I picked out were good. especially the nanamino bar
My boyfriend Ben had a really hard time getting a present for me this year, since he wanted to get me a necklace. Though all the stores either didn’t have what we were looking for or they were overly expensive, and everything we liked didn’t ship to Canada for some reason.. So he ended up buying me Sam and Max the cartoon series. That recently came in the mail and it was really cute with a yellow ribbon and card you can see up there. Also he got me a Scott Pilgrim poster that hasn’t come yet, so I’m going to get that framed. Sam and Max and Scott Pilgrim make me think of him, so think they’re perfect gifts. I hope I can get him something really nice in July for his birthday.
My kill bill poster I sent to get framed a couple months ago finally came back, and I sent in my sin city one to get framed next. I have a ton of posters in my drawer that are waiting to get framed also. I guess I’m kind of crazy framing them all, but all the other posters I had fell off the wall a ton of times and eventually got ruined.. So now the only issue is where to hang it up in my room, along with that cheap floral one I got from ikea..
Maybe Michael can come over and help me, since he completely changed Sean’s room around in a couple months. I wish I had a before and after picture with how dramatic the change was.
Lastly today I was trying to play the first Alice Mcgee on ps3 I still have that game on PC, but my father took the case and threw the discs into the cardboard box it came in and they got scratched to hell.. So I’m not sure if there’s any way to fix them or if they’ve completely had it..
Anyway, I got pretty far until I got stuck when I first bought the game, and today I got unstuck from where I was, but I have to get used to the horrible controls all over again.. I think the title of the 2nd game that I haven’t even touched is really fitting, Madness Returns Since this game is one of those games that drive you insane with the controls or annoying things along the way, but when you proceed it’s just like “holy shit I got through that complete mess.. now to go through this complete mess, and this torture, and this hell.. aaaah” and the character designs and look of the game keeps me playing too.. I really hope when I finish this game that the 2nd has that atmosphere, and if it has horrible controls.. why am I torturing myself?
I wished Tim Burton took inspiration from this game for his Alice movie. Since if some of those ideas, money was put behind it, and also rated R or just taken seriously.. that would probably become one of my new favourite movies. Maybe one day there’ll be an Alice Mcgee film, but I hope it won’t be doomed like a lot of other video game movies out there if it happens. And if that never happens at least I have Alice Mcgee to abuse me.
I’m so happy since I’ve finally scraped a 1st in the last 150cc cup I had left. Everything else I pretty much breezed through, but for w/e reason all the cpu characters became spawns of hell.. Maybe that’s what makes the special cup special.
I love this game so much though, but my only issues are probably everyone’s issues with it. Wanting more unlockables and more customization with karts and community items.. Would be cool just to have a little item check list like super smash bros. and more characters/ metal characters.
I’m also kind of mad someone stole my snes and n64 mario kart games, since I really want to play those too.. Maybe there are cheap copies online, idk.
Also I think that Pizza Nova box is the coolest pizza box I’ve ever seen.
Sean and I went shopping and afterwards we headed over to his place to have dinner with him and his boyfriend Michael. Unfortunately trying sushi for the first time I wasn’t a fan, but eating with chopsticks was awkwardly fun.
Michael and I were saying it’s getting harder to find great movies to watch, since it’s starting to feel like we’ve already seen the great films out there. Obviously that isn’t the case with how many films are out there, but we watched an okay movie together called faces in the crowd.. I only liked the face blindness part of the movie, but everything else I wasn’t a fan of at all..
Hopefully we’ll find some great thrillers or other films to watch together soon.
