Ahh, the joy that is periods. *dies*

I had a Gaara-dream. Again. This time it was about all the boys in Naruto being wee kids and playing in a sandbox. Then Sasuke had to go somewhere, and while he was gone, Gaara stole his shovel and bucket. Neji got very angry at Gaara about it and started chasing him. Gaara laughed (it was a cute, happy laughter o^^o) and ran around the sanbox. It was so cute! ^_______^

Removing bodyhair with wax is 3vil. 3vil, I says! 3VIL! :hurt:

So. We're officially going to Ireland in the beginning of July. Mom just booked us planetickets for July 3rd. Major yayness at that. Finally it's starting to feel like we're actually going, and now I finally feel secure enough about this so that I can start being excited. ^_^

Can't wait to get my cosplay started, seeing as Chiko-Chiko's is almost done. Wai! :]

*wants to braid sissy's hair so bad, but isn't allowed to* ;_;

*smooches Gaa-chan to bits 'cause he's so adorable* ^-^
Tee hee, watched ep 38 yesterday, and thank Lilith it actually looked good! Yay! Also, there was Gaara in it, so that always makes me a happy little Gaara-obsessee. Can't wait to see him fight. WAI! o^^o And I still think he should've tripped Yoroi. That would've been so priceless! XP

Not much to blog about. We've started making our cosplays - or make that Chiko-Chiko's cosplay, since her's is being done first. Her pants are already done (as she so subtly put it XD) and her shirt is 70% done. It would probably be finished already if we hadn't run out on black cloth. Bloody marvellous. Now we'll have to buy more of it, though it's not such a big deal as we have to go shopping for black cloth for my Gaara cosplay anyway. In the meantime we will probably be making my belt and gourd, so at least we're not wasting time. It's all good. :]

Birthday meme, stolen from Inanna:


Strange and full of contrasts
Often egoistic
Broad horizon
Unexpected reactions
Unlimited ambition
No flexibility
Difficult and uncommon partner
Not always liked but often admired
Ingenious strategist
Very jealous and passionate
No compromises.

That's actually very true. >.>

feeling: semi-genki
listening to: Silent Hill 3 - You're Not Here

Hmm...long time no blog. Didn't feel very talkative with the whole insident with Chiko-Chiko's entrance exam. But thankfully that's now over and dealt with, and more importantly, Chiko-Chiko is feeling much better about it. So will not get into that anymore.
Then there was, of course, Midsummer. As always, we spent it at our grandmother's place and had fun, though it was semi-rainy most of the time. I missed our cats like mad even though we were only gone for two nights. Hopefully they didn't feel too bad about having been left behind. :/

Tch. I thought I had loads of things to say, but now I can't think of anything. Figures... DX

Silent Hill 3 is MAD AWESOME! It does freak the living daylights out of me, but nonetheless, I can't help but love it. I guess horror stuff is slowly growing on me. >.> And is it just me, or is SH3 a whole lot scarier than SH2? Or maybe I've just gotten so used to SH2 due to having played it so many times that the "not knowing what the hell is making that sound" -element is sort of gone for me. Now I just enjoy bumping into Pyramid Head. XD Which, by the way, is the only downside to SH3 - no P-Head-butt. ;_; There also seem to be a lot of "things simply meant to freak you out" in SH3. Like the answering knocking from rooms that are empty, screaming mannequins (sheez, I almost died from a heart-attack right there!) and bleeding mirrors. And boy, don't I hate it when the hallways turn red and smudgy with blood (I assume it's blood, anyway o_O) and end up looking like the graphics had totally flipped out.
And as Chiko-Chiko said in her Deviant Journal, I, as well, will never again feel comfortable around mannequins. As if they weren't freaky enough as it is...
BTW...what is with the makers of Silent Hill and toilets? Every game seems to have its fair share of blocked up, bloody toilets and stalls that are locked and seemingly empty but have someone knocking and/or screaming back at you when you knock on the door. Just something I noticed, when disturbing yet another monster on the toilet... 6_6

What a very disjointed entry.

listening to: Vanessa-Mae - Night Flight

Y'know, I always knew the people who select students for schools are idiots, but I always thought they had at least some shreds of intelligence somewhere in their heads. Apparently not. If this is really how things are gonna turn out for my sis, I will never again have faith in the Finnish school system and refuse to take any further part in it.

For the selectors' sake, I hope the letter of acceptance is just ridiculously late. Otherwise someone's gonna bleed. A lot.

listening to: X-Perience - Neverending Dream

I'm pretty sure Chiko-Chiko and I have pretty much the same readership (and if anything, Chiko-Chiko has more readers than I do), but I'm going to promote her cause here anyway.
So. As you can read from Chiko-Chiko's blog for yourself, she's been having problems with Windows Movie Maker. Some of the clips she wants to use to make a music video simply won't work with the program and it's frustrating the living daylights out of her. Now she has figured out that the fault is most likely in the movie clips she's trying to use and not in the program (I'm not going to repeat what she said, mainly because I didn't understand a word of it. Go read it for yourself.) The sucky thing is that she doesn't really know what to do about it. So if you have any knowledge or experience with Windows Movie Maker and/or know something about movie file codecs, help her out. Please. It's not that much to ask.

listening to: Naruto - Kakashi's Theme

Oh wow, go me! I actually drew something. 'tis Jecht. I realize the anatomy is a bit off (among other things) but keep in mind that I haven't drawn in YEARS. Also, I'm lousy with drawing hair, so Chiko-Chiko helped me out a bit. As you can probably tell. So, anyway, here it is:


Critiques and comments are welcome.



Soon I'll be drawing yaoi like it's nothing! *runs*


feeling: headachy
listening to: nothing, actually

Since Chiko-Chiko went back to AIM, I thought that I might as well go, too. I got a new screenname because, frankly, I don't want go back to the old one. It's full of people I no longer know, so I'm starting fresh. My new screenname is KaksiSukkaa (because I'm an unimaginative twit and most of the names I tried were already taken). Currently my buddylist includes only Chiko-Chiko, so feel free to stop by and say hi. I won't bite. Usually, anyway. That being said, I'm online as we speak and will probably stay that way for most of the day. Unless I get harrassed by weird people. D:

Had a dentist's appointment at 8:20 this morning. Bloody hell is all I can say about that. I had to get up at 6:30am to be there in time. On my summer holiday, too. Wak.
It wasn't a particularly pleasant appointment, either. They took moulds of both my upper and lower teeth (which is HELLISH, I tell you) and then I got X-rayed, as well. It wasn't my first time at either, but that still doesn't mean I have to like it. There's nothing terribly wrong with getting X-rayed, but I sure as heck wouldn't die of misery if I never had to give moulds again. The paste tastes bloody awful and they always manage to mess it all over my face. Plus they always use "spoons" two size too big for my mouth, which makes the already uncomfortable situation intolerable. My gums are sore even as we speak. :/

Viruses I suffer from, stolen from Drew:

Viruses you suffer from:

Big is good. Small is bad. Giant robots would not make a good last line of defence for Earth.

Viruses you might suffer from:

Pokemon (60%)
Pikachu! Use your hyper-electric-get-a-life move now!

Linux (80%)
Install the latest version of Microsoft Windows. Learn to love it.

Discordia (60%)
Buy a suit. Invest your money. Eat hotdog buns on a friday.

Politics (80%)
Stop caring!

Brand Names (70%)
Having a well-known name doesn't make it good.

Stop staring at the screen and get some fresh air. You should see a doctor about the RSI in your thumbs.

Conspiracy Theory (68%)
Face it, the elected government is in control. Actually that's quite scary.

Environmentalism (73%)
Consume more stuff! It's easier to buy new stuff than to recycle.

Hippyism (73%)
Free love is passe and potentially dangerous, and patchouli smells like cat piss.

Haha, lol. So the only virus I have is a Japan-virus? Whoa. I thought I'd suffer from a computer gaming -virus for sure, but apparently it's just something I MIGHT suffer from. Hmm. :/
And what do you mean, "Giant robots would not make a good last line of defence for Earth"?! Of course they would! XD

Gaara is so TINY!!! o^____^o
Sorry. Couldn't help it.

W-T-H?! Dude, I can't believe I stumbled upon that! XD XD XD

The question is, how has Gaara gotten his hands on something like that? XP

listening to: Anngun - Snow On The Sahara

Sometimes people can be so annoying. I woke up at 9am this morning to the phone ringing. I was finally fast asleep after having a rather lousy night as far as sleep is concerned (and moreover, I was in the middle of a dream about Gaara babysitting kids on a playground! *insert very loud fangirly squeal here*). It took me three rings to realize what the hell was going on, during the forth I consider ignoring it and after the fifth I (stupidly) scurry to answer it, thinking it might be mom with something important. I manage to mumble something resembling my name into the receiver, half expecting to hear mom ask if she woke me up. To my shock, though, I hear a male voice introduce himself. My blurry mind only picks up a name which I think belonged to a magazine (and which I by now have forgotten) and the fact that he's asking for mom. I'm like 'WTF?!' and seriously consider biting the guy's head off. I snap that mom's not here and that she can be reached here in the evening, after which I hang up. Admittedly I was being slightly rude, but the moron interrupted possibly the best sleep and definitely the greatest dream I've had in weeks. You'd think he had the brains to know that since it's Monday, mom will be at work, and if she's not, she would still be sleeping, like I was. Jerk. :whitemushroom:

The weekend was pretty nice. I don't remember much about Saturday, most likely because nothing special happened. Chiko-Chiko and I did stay up until 2am to watch Blade, which in retrospect wasn't really worth it. Mom and I were planning on planting all our seedlings, but since it was so infernally rainy on Saturday, we decided to do it on Sunday instead.
Enter a change of plans. Around noon our aunt gives us a call and asks if we want to stop by at grandma's. It's a nice, sunny day so we hop into the car and pop in unannounced. And boy, was grandma ever pleased! She fed us to death with all her delicious foods, as can be expected. We spent almost the entire day outside, doing whatever. I made a garland of dandelions, originally meant for Gaara (I'm silly, I know ^______^), but it ended up as slightly too large, so I just hung it up over the cellar door. We saw Kalle, grandma's cat, a couple times as he appeared as he pleased. We also said hello to Killi, grandma's other cat, as she was sprawling out in the sauna. Adorable little things, I must say. :) We even persuaded Chiko-Chiko to participate in a game of croquet, which turned out to be a lot of fun indeed. Except for the part where Remu kept stealing our balls and carrying them around in his mouth. That little pest. XP
Figures of course that I had to go and get burned. Well, almost anyway. My upper back and shoulders are of an unhealthy shade of red and are now somewhat sore. That's what happens on the rare days of warm weather, when you get nothing but rain for days on end most of the time. Luckily I was intelligent enough to wear a hat, so I didn't get sunstruck (*sticks tongue out in Minna's general direction* ;P). But all in all, it was an extremely enjoyable day. Even Chiko-Chiko spent hours outside, which in itself is great since she's not really an outdoor person. So major yayness at that. I can't wait 'til Midsummer, so we'll get to go there again. Though with my luck, it'll probably rain bucketloads. :/ But no matter. Summer at grandma's is always special, whether it's sunny or not.


w00t! Gaara will be in episode 37! NOSEBLEED! *boing boing boing*

Okay, so I couldn't resist changing my layout. But can you really blame me? :D~ *pinches Gaara*


feeling: tired
listening to: Nightwish - Wishmaster

Okay, so there were a little more than just "a few hairballs here and there". Maybe it indeed was time someone gave this house a cleaning. I wonder when was the last time someone vacuumed here? :/

Chiko-Chiko is in all bouncy now. I just donated my "Bridgman's Complete Guide To Drawing From Life"-book to her because I never use it and it's just collecting dust on my shelf. I was supposed to use it to learn how to draw, but never got around to it. I suppose I've given up hope of ever being good at drawing. ._. Anyway, I gave it to Chiko-Chiko because she probably has more use for it than I do. Or so she says. I'm not sure I believe her. ;D


feeling: somewhat gloomy
listening to: Miiru snore

It's mom's birthday on Sunday. Go mom! I heard that our aunt is going to bring grandma for a visit, but instead of Saturday (like it was originally supposed to be), they're coming today. Which means that Chiko-Chiko and I will have to clean up the house. Argh. Have I ever mentioned that I HATE cleaning up? Especially vacuuming. I think I'm going to make Chiko-Chiko do that, so I can get away with just washing the floors. XP Mom always makes such a big deal about cleaning, anyway. What's a few hairballs here and there, ne? I wish people would visit unannounced, so she wouldn't have time to make a fuss about it. ¬_¬

I'm torn between putting up my new Gaara layout and sticking with Naria & Eriya (figures I can't make an entry without talking about Gaara. :geek:). I like both layouts very much and I'd hate to change to a new one after having this one up only for about a week or so. But then again, I'm so addicted to Gaara at the moment that it feels weird not having something related to him as a layout. Ahh, decisions decisions. :B

listening to: Lasse Mårtenson - Myrskyluodon Maija

Check us out, this is what we call "fan service"! We show Gaara for 15 minutes in one episode and then we'll never show him again! To make things even better, we have him kick ass so you'd be drooling for sure, but the next episode will of course be about Naruto fishing in his undies, and there won't be even the tiniest hint of Gaara ANYWHERE! Yay us! o^_^o
Yes, just watched Naruto ep 35 and there was indeed absolutely no Gaara. Not even a tiny glimpse. Needless to say, that makes me a sad panda. ;_;

Chiko-Chiko is having her periods and it's making her grouchy. I swear, if the male gender had to go through something similar, there would've been an effective way to stop the pain invented decades ago. ¬_¬

I need my daily dosage of Gaara. I think I just might go and watch ep 34. Again. ^_^ Speaking of which, I'm dying to have a Gaara layout, but I like Naria and Eriya too much to change so quickly. Whee, go me.
