What did Santa bring everyone? Here’s a rundown of what I received:
Delphi MyFi XM2go, Hello Kitty Calendar, Hello Kitty Planner, keychain, Betty Crocker Bake’n Fill, Scene It? 007 Edition, socks, notepads, card shuffler, CD (Ghost in the Shell SAC O.S.T 2), money; Pink Peacoat and Kate Spade Messenger Bag (from Will)

If you participated in my Christmas card exchange, hopefully you will receive my cards sometime soon… I sent them last Thursday. Sorry if they didn’t get to you before Christmas!

I’m currently having to update some stuff on my site, so most of the pages will not be working. Also, you will not be able to access the BubblesSWAP Member Area. I’m trying my best to work out these kinks! (Everything should be fixed now. Please let me know if you see any errors!) If you’re a PHP coder, FYI: DON’T USE REGISTER GLOBALS! :boil:

BTW – I forgot to mention that I finished reading HP and the Half-Blood Prince… I’ll have to post my crazy theories in a latter post.

HP: Order of the Phoenix

After seeing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in theaters, I bought the Order of the Phoenix and began reading. I just finished the book last weekend.
Why did Sirius have to die??? He was the reason I got obsessed with Harry Potter in the first place :cry:

I’ll have to wait until after finals to start reading the Half-Blood Prince.

Will and I are going to see Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe tonight. I hope it’s good!

If you’re interested in exchanging Christmas cards, please refer to the previous post :)

Christmas Card Exchange

It’s that time of the year again! Please email me if you’re interested in exchanging Christmas cards. I saw some really cute ones at Books-A-Million that I’m going to pick up this weekend ;) By the way, anyone can exchange cards with me… you don’t have to be a close online friend or anything. It’s a great way to make new friends! hehe

Finals are up in two weeks… so I won’t be around much until after those. Hopefully, I’ll get back online regularly after that. Maybe I’ll even put a new skin up :D Thanks to everyone who comments. During Christmas break, I’ll definitely repay the favor!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Harry Potter IV

Everyone should see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire … it was the best movie I’ve seen all year! I cried at one part :cry: (I’m such a little girl) I’m planning on seeing it again with my dad during Thanksgiving break.

Star Wars: ROTS

Will bought me the Star Wars Episode III dvd on Tuesday. All I wanted to see were the deleted scenes. I was very disappointed to discover that there are only 5 included on the disc! I know there were more scenes cut than 5 :grumpy: I was really looking forward to the scene where Obi-Wan visits Padme the first time (the cut one, not the one included in the original film). If I weren’t having a terrible semester, I’d take a day off from class and watch Episodes I-VI :lol:

I am now a proud owner of all 5 seasons of Sailormoon! :nod: Now, I want to save my money and buy the manga. Does anyone know where I can find the manga for a decent price? I noticed Tokyopop no longer carries them.

Sorry for the sparse blog entries. One word – school :P

Bond, James Bond

Hmm, I wonder how Daniel Craig will do. I’m really excited about Casino Royale being the new Bond film, since it is one of Ian Fleming’s original books. It’s about time they started working on the new film!! I can’t wait until it comes out… I have high hopes. Martin Campbell, the director of GoldenEye, will be directing Casino Royale. Although it wasn’t my favorite of the Brosnan four, GoldenEye was one million times better than Die Another Day :P Someone called Die Another Day the “Batman and Robin of the Bond series” :rofl: … that pretty much sums it up.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon!

I’m so excited!! I ordered the complete, uncut, original Japanese Sailormoon Season 1 and received it last night! I’ve only seen the crappy DiC dub of the first two seasons :P I popped the first disc in and started watching from the beginning. After getting a quarter of the way through the first episode, I thought to myself, “I’m not understanding what’s going on…”. I soon realized that there were no subtitles! (I was proud of myself, however, because I was following the Japanese pretty good ;) ) I started to panic, but then figured out how to turn on the subtitles.

Question: Should I be concerned if the set I ordered isn’t official? I ordered from a reputable seller on Amazon, but the box looks different from the box pictured. I planned on purchasing Sailormoon R this afternoon from the same seller, but I wanted to ask first.

For those of you awaiting the results of the Caption Challenge: I’m going to consult guest judges so that there won’t be any bias. I should have the results by the end of the next week :)

I’m sick of helping people and getting crap in return. If you’re not going to lend me a hand, then don’t ask for mine!! And I really hate people who have attitude problems. Angsty people especially get on my nerves. Quit complaining, there’s a lot of people whose lives suck a lot more than yours. It’s just not cool :grumpy:

(I don’t think angsty is even a word, but I’m using it anyway! :P )

Movies and More

I’m not much of a football fan, but I’m so excited that Bama is 4 and 0! I think that ESPN Gameday is coming to Tuscaloosa next weekend for Bama vs Florida… that should be interesting. Maybe I will have to participate in the festivities ;)

School is really tough this semester! I’ve been lost in my ECE class since day one. Although my first ECE class is kicking my butt, I still plan to double major.

I’m a movie trailer lover, so I thought I’d mention a few trailers of movies that I can’t wait to see:
V for Vendetta
All the King’s Men
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Chronicles of Narnia
The New World

I was looking forward to Aeon Flux, but the trailer actually doesn’t look that good :no: I’ll probably see it anyway, though. I tend to do that.

Google Discovery

I was googling my site in pig latin and I found a topic on a CSS message board with a link to my site:

interesting site HB with regards to this bug and some other computer stuff.

but some weird erm, stuff on there.

sometimes it’s just so bizarre to get a intimate insight into a person’s life.

I especially liked the part about the ‘virtual quilt scene’ :rofl: Oh well, maybe they found my article helpful!
