Would some of you lovely people on LJ toss a code to my
direction? I seem to be doing this commenting thing often enough
to get an account. And who knows, maybe I'll write something
about the lameness that is my life in there, as well. ;)
Apparently OAUTIM isn't opening in Finland on the 31st after all.
Screw you, Finnkino. 5th December is a load of crap, if you ask
me. Stupid Halloween night with nothing to do.

I think I just may have gotten the first food-poisoning of my
life, and so far I'm not liking it at all. I spent a great deal
of last night sitting on the toilet (Minna: I hope the house
didn't reek too bad when you guys came over! XP) and even the
thought of food makes my stomach turn inside out. I have yet to
throw anything up, and I really really hope it won't even
get to that. And holy crap, it hurts! It feels like there's a
stick through my abdomen or that there's a hedgehog rolling about
in my intestines. I guess the best way to discribe it is to say
that it's like having a major heartburn that comes with a nasty
case of shortness of breath. Any suggestions?
All hail McDonald's! D:
In other news, mom has the flu and is on sick leave for the rest
of the week. Yay. She better not get me infected, and all.
OUATIM on Friday! w00tw00t! o^_^o

feeling: emotionally drained
listening to: Soul Reaver game sounds
To honor the memory of Anubis, the 18th layout is back up.
I finished ZOE 2 last night. I should imagine you can figure the
rest out for yourselves. Suffice to say I cried more than I ever
thought humanly possible. I will talk about the ending more once
I'm able to do so without tearing up, if ever.

listening to: Final Fantasy 6 - Deserted Industry OC ReMix
Vanilla Sky screws up my brain. And not in a good, End
Of Evangelion sort of way, either. Most of the time I was
simply thinking "...th?" and wishing things would start making
sense, lest I die of boredom. Not a very spectacular movie in
any sense. Now, Chocolat, on the other hand. What a lovely,
light-hearted movie. It was a lot like Gilbert Grape in
that sense (well, duh); pretty much nothing happened and I still
loved every minute of it. Especially the minutes with Mr Depp
in them. Seriously, that guy doesn't even have to try and he
makes me swoon head-over-heels. You can pop by and "adjust my
door" anytime, mister. Whenever's good for you. :D~
What else...? Oh yeah. I saw Fool's Errand in a bookstore
yesterday - translated into Finnish. But guess what? No Golden
Fool, in English or otherwise. Disheartening. Anyway, I read
a few chapters here and there (Nighteyes' death, anyone? ;_;) and
found myself regarding the translation as silly. That never
happened when I read the Farseer trilogy, and if I recall
right, the person who did the tranlating is the same person in
all the books. Talk about weird. Figures I've gotten so used
to reading books in English that fiction in Finnish feels just
plain awkward. :/
I bought a corset yesterday. ph34r me! XD

Like Chiko-Chiko already
said, we saw The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen on
Friday. Nautilus indeed was very gorgeous and beautiful. And
though I will get laughed at (and with a bit of luck, punched by
Chiko-Chiko) for saying this, Dorian Gray really had me drooling.
The guy is seriously hot.
...What? He is!

feeling: hungry but happy
listening to: Smile.dk - Boys
"Boys, boys, be my boys..." ^_^
listening to: Anubis: Zone Of The Enders - Jehuty ~ Vivid Transparency
Do you know the feeling of ultimate happiness? The kind that
makes your heart skip beats and causes your breath to get caught
up in your throat. The feeling of absolute bliss. There really
are no words to discribe the feeling, but if you've been there,
you know what I'm talking about.
Yes indeed, I am talking about ZOE 2. As you may have guessed
from the hearts in the previous entry, I got the game on Tuesday
and got it started yesterday. I immediately did in almost four
hours and only quit because I was getting serious cramps on
my right thumb. Anyway, I got up to Zakat, who handed me my ass.
Hooray. I blame the thumb. XP
Jehuty. Hardly needs to be said, but I adore him to death.
Sexy little fiend. ^_^
Anubis. Definitely Anubis. Can we all say "gorgeous"? He is
mighty cranky, though. He needs a hug. *gives him one* ^_^ One
thing, yet. Am I the only person who is slightly bugged by the
fact that everyone thinks Anubis is evil? Because he isn't.
Nohman is the evil one, and people seem to have those two
confused. I might be wrong, of course, as I have yet to actually
finish the game, but I seriously doubt any of the events can
change my mind about that. But yeah, Anubis makes my nose bleed,
make no mistake about that.
ADA. Everyone needs to love her. She was seriously brilliant
in the first game, but now she kicks total @$$! She has more
character, attitude and is simply luffly all around. And the
things she says... man, awesomeness!
"Are you making fun of me?"
"Don't get too confident."
"You won't be able to do it in 10 seconds."
"I am completely different."
"If I have to..."
And of course, who could forget the ever-so-lovely "Good
morning. Ready for combat operations." ^_^
Ardjet. She is hot. SERIOUSLY hot. And she seems to have
the hots for Jehuty, too. Just look at the scene where she pulls
Jehuty close to give him Wisp and tell me I'm wrong.
Besides, she did play the damsel in distress for him. That scene
was so very amusing. "I'm doomed!" Good one, Ardjet. ;)
Viola. She might've been just a battle AI but damn me if
she wasn't cool. I loved the way she said the same things as she
did in the first game during battle. That was very cool indeed.
And she did give me seriously hard time during the fight where
she invaded Ardjet. Nasty female. Calling Jehuty "target Bravo"
was the coolest, though. I almost glomped her then. :)
Leo is actually very cool. He still looks like a little kid, but
at least he's got himself an attitude and doesn't whine all the
time anymore. The way he cares for ADA and Jehuty is simply
heart-warming. :) Plus Vic Viper is so damn cool you just have
to like any guy who pilots a Frame like that. ^_^
Am I the only person who nearly screamed with laughter in the
stage where you have to navigate through the mine-infested field
to get to Lloyd? That was such a blast, pun not intended. I kept
getting hit by things again and again because I didn't stop in
time, heaven help me. Hooray for Ken. "No! Do you want to die?!"
"Do it carefully!" No, ma'am. Yes, ma'am. Whatever you say,
I have tons of stuff floating on my brain and I'm trying to
remember to mention them all. The music is mind-blowing. The
Combo Smash owns my butt. Grabbing objects and using them as
weapons is awesome. Spinning the enemies around is so cute it
makes me laugh. I love talking back to ADA. Taper is NOT evil,
WTH? The animated style of the cutscenes is so very very cool.
Controlling Jehuty is not difficult, what are you people smoking?
The lighting and special effects are so beautiful they make me
cross-eyed. Callisto, Phobos and Deimos are NOT satellites, they
are moons. The Vector Cannon is pretty. The opening demos cause
me to die of a heart-attack every time. I'm fairly sure I will
cry my eyes out before this game is over.
As an ending note, I have only one thing to say:
Love is ZOE-shaped. ♥

Chiko-Chiko and I went to
see the waterorgans last night. It was very gorgeous. We sat for
nearly an hour in the ice-cold rain, but it was definitely worth
it. I took over 20 photos, so hopefully they will turn out good.
Watched Joan Of Ark last night. Not much an experience,
really. Joan (Jeanne, whatever) seemed just plain insane more
than anything. And her attitude started getting on my nerves
after the first 30 minutes. "It's God who's angry!" Right, WTF?
Anyway. Dustin Hoffman was great as her conscience. I thought
he was the Devil at first. Go me. ¬_¬
But seriously, getting burned alive must hurt like hell. Just
imagine how long it takes for a person to die like that. Nasty.
Uhm...not much else to say. Other than that I want ZOE 2 so much
I will die if I don't get it soon. ;;_;;
That, and tablets are great. Funny and difficult to use, but
great. And I sewed up a hole in my pantyhose this morning. It
looks horrid, but at least my toes aren't sticking out anymore.

listening to: Soul Calibur 2 game sounds
Screens of Soul Calibur 2's opening FMV wanted. Especially of
Nightmare (who didn't see that coming?) and Soul Edge as it
opens its eye. I seem to be unable to find them myself, no matter
how hard I've looked. Everyone ignores the opening FMV. :/
Yoshi's Sheperd's Crook actually says "baah!", like sheep do.
It's hilarious. And Nightmare's Galley Oar says "dong!" and
"splash!". The folks at Namco really do have too much time on
their hands. XD
When I went to the jobshop some time ago, I was told that the
local 4H association (no, I have no idea what it stand for) are
looking for trainees. They're maintaining a farmyard sort-of-thing
not too far from where I live and basically the trainess would
take care of the animals and the yard and work in the cafeteria.
I have been sitting on that since then, not being able to decide
whether or not I feel up to it. Since it's a traineeship, I
wouldn't be getting paid as such, but I would be entitled to
some sort of financial support through it. And seeing as I'm on
a 5-month waiting period before being able to draw my unemloyment
support (yes, I really said 5 MONTHS) and am getting absolutely
no money whatsoever during that time, it would really seem like
the thing to do at the moment. I just can't decide if I'm mentally
fit enough for the job. It would basically mean working eight-to-four
all over again, but then again, it's not school. It would, however,
mean I could no longer rest (slug?) at home. Of course, as mom
has said to me, I am the only one who knows how I feel and if I'm
up to it, but suggestions would still be appreciated. I can't decide
on my own.
Hmm...what else? Oh yeah. I want ZOE 2. Why can't I find it
anywhere? It's hardly a "marginal group" game, so that's not it.
OUATIM will be in theaters on the 31st! *spasm* *spasm* And
The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen starts on the 17th.

listening to: Soul Calibur 2 game sounds
I love the way Nightmare says "Soul Calibur 2" in the start-up
screen. His way of saying "two" sounds an awful lot like "chuu".
Tee hee, Galley Oar is funny. "I shall hit you over the head with
a wooden oar now, okay!" Ehh...right Nightmare, right. *patpatpat*
Yeah, I just felt like saying that. More Nightmare-gushing. :D
listening to: Smile.dk - Dragonfly
Smile.dk has some very decent songs. I am now very much hooked on
them. I blame it all on Butterfly. :F
Oh, and please excuse the previous entry. It was around/after
midnight, and Chiko-Chiko
and I were having a bit too much fun for our own good.
can be dangerous place when you're high on laughter. XP
But the song really is funny, you know.

listening to: Anubis: Zone Of The Enders - Beyond The Bounds (Mitsuto Suzuki 020203 Mix feat. Sana)
Well. Been a few days. Anyone miss me? ;D Anyhow, the blog is
back up and hopefully is there to stay. *glares*
Not much is going on with me. Still ZOE-less. We went to shop
for it on Saturday, but none of the stores we checked had it.
Figures. :/ Instead, we ran into Soul Calibur 2 and decided to get
it in the lack of ZOE. Can't say I'm disappointed, though I'm
still very much longing for my Jehuty-chan. T_T
Anyhow. SC2 kicks much-o ass! The fighting system is VERY
different from Tekken, and thus poses slight problem for me at
times. The fact that it's not "one limb per button" is confusing,
and I even found myself trying to play it as The Bouncer every
now and again. That, and having to block manually with either
X and L1 kills me all the time. Still not used to that and the
fact that the game is so much more intense that Tekken isn't
helping much. :/
My character is, of course, the ever-so-yummy (armored) Nightmare,
but that seems to be common knowledge anyway and thus hardly needs
to be said. ;D Soul Edge is mighty ass-kicking and the opening
FMV totally owns me. The scene with my yum-yum has me slobbering
like a dimwit every time. Sexy and shiny to boot! And the hair,
oh the hair! It's so...so...RED! *braids it* :DDDD~
I will talk more about his moves and such when I'm able to be
slightly more coherent about it. Just suffice to say that the
stances own me. ^^
In other news, mom is going to the biological station or whatever
in Lammi today and will stay overnight. That means me and
Chiko-Chiko will be alone
for tonight and have to manage everything on our own. I will
even have to prepare my own food. Oh joyous day. I'm still
very bitter about not being able to go with her to the station,
Hungry now. Must eat.

even Howard Shore himself knows. :/
