Ye First of April
So April Fools' Day has come and gone again! Lots of good nerdy pranks out there. XD Thanks for sharing.
The only prank I found that no one posted in comments was Think Geek www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/loofli… ... And theirs was a cruel prank indeed. Dang it, I totally want ALL of those imaginary items (especially the Squeez Bacon, and the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, and the Portal Shirt, and the USB Pet Rock... And heck, the Unicorn Chaser, too.) D: Imagine the sales they would have garnered! If only!
Oh, and the Teefury Ceiling Cat shirt was not a lie! : D So I have ordered one. Unfortunately, the girly shirt's colour is yellow, and my distaste for yellow is palpable... But I'll swallow my hatred for the good of the lolcats. I guess I could have gotten the guy's shirt (which was on grey)... Too late now!
Also, I ordered a shirt from Woot six weeks ago, and it JUST came in today. Customs are the suck. |:
(I AM SLIGHTLY OBSESSED WITH ORDERING INTERNET T-SHIRTS.)
Rayman Revolution arrived yesterday! : D Yaaaay!
I'm very pleased with it so far, though it kind of makes me wonder what the original Rayman 2 was like... I guess it didn't have a hub world? Also, I assume it had less sucky load times (what is it with the PS2 and load times?! There never used to be load times in the good old days!)
...THERE IS A SPIDER ON MY BED. |: IT LEAPT OUT OF THE SHADOWS, LIKE SOME SORT OF PHANTOM OF THE
NATURE IS REMINDING ME WHILE I HATE SPRING. INSECTS. (And arachnids.)
CRAP. NOW I CAN'T GO TO BED TONIGHT. D:< FREAKING SPIDER.
(Yes, I am arachnophobic. How original of me.)
Training is going well with my newbie. Actually, she learned ridiculously fast. I think she's going to try working on her own next week (with my reluctant supervision). Here's hoping she doesn't make fifty bajillion mistakes like the other people I trained! : D
I'm going to watch a curling game tomorrow! XD The World's Men Curling Champeenship is in my city, and... come on, I can't miss THAT.
...And I got free tickets from work (yay for working at the newspaper), so I might as well go. xD
(Unfortunately, Canada isn't even PLAYING tomorrow. BOO.)
LET ME TELL YOU, THERE IS NO MORE EXCITING SPORT THAN CURLING.
My glasses are so reflective right now, I can see my eyeballs reflected in the lenses. D:/
...It's kinda creeping me out.
Avatar Takes the Cake Again
Avatar has won a Peabody Award! ^^ Yet another prestigious award for a very worthy show.
"Unusually complex characters and healthy respect for the consequences of warfare enhanced this American-made, anime-influenced martial-arts adventure."
Creativity? What's That?
It's struck me that I promised to draw as much original art as fanart this year, and my fanart is currently outnumbering my original art by 10 to 1 (and I'm not really sure if I should count Cubie as original or fanart. |: ) So I should really stop slacking on my resolution...
That Was Random
Augh, this journal didn't make any sense at all. D:<
I guess I'll leave you with something even more random: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTGrjc…
