Last night when going to a party, we stopped off at a 7-Eleven for some ice or something. Some leery guy winked at my mom twice when we were in the car waiting for my dad to buy it. This ensued once my brother and I actually understood what she was freaking out about.

Mom: oh god oh god THIS IS BAD I WANT YOUR DAD TO COME BACK ALREADY

Me: So, we're in the car alone and a pervert was staring at you?

Littlest!bro: *turns to me, grins* So I guess he was feeling the flow?

Me: ...OH MY GOD, DON'T RUIN THAT FOR ME. *SMACK UPSIDE HEAD*


Yes, he had watched ZeXal dub that morning.
northwind_gale: (lol)
In the middle of it, our teacher showed us a video of one of those cheesy chemistry songs that are stupid and cheesy and stupid and somehow never really get the point across.

The video was clearly made in that Valve video-maker that people keep making those TF2 videos or something.

I am laughing really hard right now.
northwind_gale: (D:)
I just realized that I turned twenty today.

OH GOD I FEEL SO OLD AND YOUNG AT THE SAME TIME I DON'T EVEN

mom and I tried our hand at making apple pie for the first time today. It came out a little burnt, but awesome and more delicoulsy tangy and less sickeningly sweet than store-bought apple pies. Also flour, flour everywhere. And homemade cake and milk rice with mung beans and and and and later I'm getting a salmon dish for dinner and it's my favorite fish and aaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Lost power for about a day, but it's back now and no damage taken here other than some chairs being blown into our empty pool and fruit blown off our trees.

Oh, also today's my dad's birthday. Happy birthday, daddy :D. Hope you enjoyed our special visitor.
northwind_gale: (:))
I am baaaaccck~.

Had a fun vacation; would talk about it except apparently LJ's gone down in my absence. Sigh. Maybe later. Just know that it was fun, that I got sunburned for the first time in memory, and I am now sick of fast food and American food in general. :V

Hiatusing!

Long story short, going on a vacation for a week. A day or two in Myrtle Beach and then off to Disney World! It's gonna be great. :D So yeah, I won't be on the computer at all. Gone from this Sunday to next Sunday/Monday.

To supplement this post so that it's not a mere two lines long, have a random sketch of a girl in a bonnet I scrawled at work.





The crook and sheep was an afterthought, really. :|
northwind_gale: (What?)

Er, kinda. Power's been out since Wednsday's storms here. Came back on Thursday while I was at school, but then a transformer blew and it was out again. Didn't come back on until this afternoon. We've been spending the days over at a friend's house because it had been colder inside the house than outside. At least that meant the food didn't spoil. :V

Also, all our fish in our tank died. ;^; They couldn't handle the sudden temp change. The ones in the pond are alright, though.

Since I'm going back to school, I'll have more access to the computer and daddy's laptop now. :D So you'll see me around more now. <3

Lost power last night. Still don't have power. Also had to go shovel snow.

Oh yeah, and my college's still open. Plus side: it's the first day of the spring semester (technically, yesterday was but they closed it before I could have my evening class) so it's highly likely that we're not gonna cover much and I get to use the school's internet. And claim usage of daddy's laptop again. Yaaaaay~. <3
northwind_gale: (- -...)

ggggfffuuuuu I haet you work and your perpetually cold building and unhygenic workers so desperate for their dwindling hours that they come in sick which I am also prone to doing so I can't blame them ;A;

but yeah, sore throat and coughing for the past three days now. I'm at the stage where it's less *pain* and more *tightness* and croaky voice and somewhat difficulty with breathing and not feeling hungry EVER and not sleeping because ow ow ow coughs.

one or two more days of this. just a little longer.

on the plus side I get to skip out of chores a lot because my mom reckons I look drowsy.
northwind_gale: (Sheepish grin)


So yeah, this is just a quick little update before I vanish into the ether. Again. It's just not my month for being on the 'net. ;w; Still sharing one big family computer with everyone, still trying to avoid the parents catching me on it. :V

So how was everyone's holidays? I'll probably find out once I go through my f-list at some point later in the day but yeah.

Also how about dat Zexal. Yeah, I know I'm later than late on making a post about this. I BLAME REAL LIFE. But from what I've seen so  far, with the anime and manga previews, I'm finding Yuuma quite adorable. This might be my bias in favor of little kids speaking. But his spunky go-get'em attitude and his character design appeal to me.

Also I drew this because I can't help but feel that Yuuma's the kind of guy that would bond with Yuusei pretty decently considering Yuusei's history with kids around Yuuma's age. You know. When the writers bother to remember said kids. :V also it makes me wonder what kind of tag DM x GX x 5D's x Zexal art would have on Pixiv. 5DzeX? 5DXal? It's an amusing train or thought.

Later, guys!


northwind_gale: (lol)

[22:06] northwindgully: ...oh my god XD
[22:07] northwindgully: I'm listening to a Sri Lankan radio channel since my mom keeps it on the computer in the evenings cuz it plays chanting
[22:07] northwindgully: they were playing a commercial about "Sirasa Star," one of the many foreign "American Idol"-esque ripoffs
[22:08] northwindgully: and they were using the Hampster Dance music for background music.
[22:08] northwindgully: i fucking died

I GOT MY DAD'S LAPTOP!

I gotta be careful with it, some screws still need to be put in, but it's working so my dad is letting me jack it whenever I need it! So that means I don't have to give up the family computer to bros whenever they want it~~~~

yey!
northwind_gale: (lol)
okay before I go onto the main inane topic of this post I say I'm sorry for not getting even an image folder of this week's ep. ;; I haven't even seen the episode yet and from what I've heard, 2chan didn't get very many caps to begin with so there goes any chance of nice HQ ones. But apparently the old man is going bird-hunting and that's pretty much it.

back to on topic thingus.

okay so I was out for most of  Wednesday and yesterday an' stuff. Only on the way home yesterday I was near one of those cars that people find obnoxious being next to because their windows are down and they're booming loud, grating music and the people are equally loud and occasionally cursing. Except I was much too amused to be offended because a combination of generic radio quality and car distance, one of the voices sounded rather like Jose. And it was some kind of rock or rap song.

Now I can't get the image of the old man rapping out of my head. ogod


oh and because of circumstances going on yesterday I got to hook up my printer/scanner with the main computer for a totally innocuous reason. So tomorrow-ish I can have another art post! :D
northwind_gale: (Angryfais)

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGH

yeah, it's an old, ornery motherfucker. Last time I had it fixed by a family friend he reccommended that we get me a new one because it would cost less than to keep replacing parts for it, but we didn't exactly have the funds for that and still don't and now that temporary fix we settled on seems to have worn off and now my laptop won't even leave the opening startup screen. Whoopie.

And it's gonna be even HARDER for me to get on this time because my dad's laptop is broke too-the screen is hanging on by a single hinge and for whatever reason it hasn't come back from the shop yet-so the only computer I have is the one big family computer that everyone wants dibs on. And is in full view from the living room and stuff. And the college libraries and labs are almost always full or blocked off for only certain majors. And it'sjust. Argh.

anyways if I'm not often as much anymore, I still love you guys. ;;

Well, I'm not up for a review today. Long story short, mom went through a diagnostic procedure and it involved anesthesia, so I've been gone for most of the morning and I'm going to be spending most of the rest of the day taking care of her as she recovers from the general effects. So yeah, not gonna review an ep when I'm feeling drained and haven't even seen the episode yet. 8V

So have my photobucket album (password is gullybuddy1) and go nuts, guys.
northwind_gale: (What?)
Generally they do this once a year, people come around in the morning and afternoon and the local community cooks up their best dishes and sell them to raise money for the temple. Lots of people who normally wouldn't stop by do, and we occasionally get people who catch what's going on as they pass by and stop in for a snack. It's been getting more and more popular and active every year.

This year it's gotten so popular that they decided to do one in the evening. To make it more appealing, they've even managed to set up a pretty decent looking stage (that we've used for maybe a year now, it's still so new lD) outside, and local kids and adults set up their own little dancing groups, do some traditional dances that occur every now and then in the middle of the auction. Littlest bro's in the children dancing group, and he's one of the best they have, good enough to get a solo dance (with three other kids that were pretty much acting and not really dancing, just moving props, but yeah), and mom's pretty much convinced that now that the dancing group is permanent, she's gonna keep him in that group since he's the only one out of the kids who doesn't have some sort of artistic release. =B

Now, I've always been popular with the younger kids there, but I haven't been going to the temple regularly for a while now since I have to pick up the autistic bro and do schoolwork, so some of the younger kids who barely know me don't really pay me much attention.

Until they found me doodling a pictar of [livejournal.com profile] kizunaprotector. SUDDENLY I AM POPULAR AGAIN.

So they go on to be impressed with my subpar drawing skills and constantly ask me if I know how to draw other things (to which my response to all of them were: I probably need a reference 8U), and I eventually promised the doodle to one of the kids who was a particularly big fan of 5D's. I had to keep correcting myself all the time because I was always using Japanese names instead of dub names, BUT I LIKE WATCHING THE DUB SO YEAH, GOOD THING I KNEW.

So yeah, I told them I was gonna scan it and then they could have it.

I'm hoping they don't start flooding me with requests the next time I end up there. BV

and now with this post I realize I should probably make an art post today or tomorrow, I have quite the backlog. 8U

EDIT: FUCK I LOVE THIS SONG 8U. ONE OF THE CLASSICS THAT PEOPLE JUST LOVE DOING DANCES FOR lD


northwind_gale: (D:)

hnnwhaaa so I was listening to this old thing and when I got to the end where it's all staticy and Giygas is dying and stuff
 
the laptop screen started going staticy at the same time

it's official

I'm completely freaked out

/closes video tab like burning

CAR GET!

Aug. 30th, 2010 03:49 pm
northwind_gale: (Hell motherfucking yeah)


Yep. Parents finally found a nice little used car for me to drive back and forth from college about two weeks ago, but we never actually registered the name and temporary tags until Friday, and didn't get the obligatory blessing until last night, so it didn't really feel like it was mine until yesterday.

But now, I'm the proud owner of a ten-year old, little sporty red Honda Civic. Hehe. I can safely say that no one in my family (including me) expected me to have a sports car. Daddy's certainly happy with the development, tho'. He wants to drive it on the days I don't go to school. I'm not surprised. This is the same daddy who still has a long-standing wish to get himself a motorbike but my mom won't let him.


northwind_gale: (What?)


So yeah, I bet you peeps who talk to me a lot on Meebo have noticed that I haven't been around much lately. You know, for other reasons other than my laptop still being broke. So I'm just giving a quick list of what's going on in my days.

1) School's starting for me next Tuesday. I've arranged my classes so that I only have them on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. So I have a lot more free time this semester. lD

2) I've been real busy this past week, dealing with preparations for a daana that we had this morning (a chanting and offering of food to the local Buddhist monks) to gain merit for my dad's birthday today. There's probably going to be a party tonight too. But since it was a pretty big event, we spent the whole week cooking and cleaning house.

3) I'm considering trying out that 30 days character meme that I've seen on [livejournal.com profile] suwako's journal. Y/N/Gale stop doing things you'll never finish?

And that's all for now, really...
