ah~ geekery.
watched Final Fantasy: Advent Children. (don't ask how, there are rules about self-incrimination in this country) it's wrong to find cg characters sexy... but well, there you have it. *siiiiiiiiiiigh* okay, so the plot was a little convoluted. so i never played the game. so tifa's boobs were rather large and somewhat solid. but hey, cloud was hot. reno was hotter. kadaj and his boys were hottest. aaaah~~~ *H_H* and funnily enough, i think that's all i have to say for now. ^_~

it's like swimming with your clothes on...
so i'm officially done with law school! (barring failure in any of my courses this term, of course. ^^;;;;) so then, things to say upon handing in the last essay... 1) a/c goooooood~~ (haha~~ when the roomie's away, the sami cranks the a/c!) 2) finished last essay this morning at 7am (no sleeping) in some weird fit of productivity and determination. 3) ... okay... "productivity"... i was marathon watching the last season of america's next top model (d/led on my laptop) while i was working on the essay. 4) napped for 2 hours then prepared for the 2:30pm IP exam. 5) ran short on time for the exam. damn hypotheticals and their many many tiny details. 6) was caught in torrential downpour without an umbrella. quite fun to be completely wet while also completely dressed. it looked like i'd gone swimming in my clothes. let me tell you something about jeans... capillary(sp?) action works. *nod* 7) engaged in some retail celebration! bought "best of groove armada" and "dub pistols: six ...

sometimes i roll over and play dead
as we approach the end of my last semester in school...possibly forever, you can find me quietly panicking in a corner. and in other news, i got a flickr account, so check out my HK pics at http://www.flickr.com/people/samishimi ^_^ i haven't uploaded them all yet, but i think there's a fair sampling of the weirdness that has been my life so far. it's weird going on exchange because you spend money like water, going to fab restaurants and buying $55 handbags just whenever. ^O^ it's particularly difficult because the exchange rate makes you forget the real value of your money. and the fact that all my courses are pass/fail means i'm not spending my time on my studies... which means more time for shoppies... ^O^ birthday on sunday. am going to see Kingdom of Heaven. hopefully it will not be too dorky. but Orli will always be teh pretteh~ so i feel it can't possibly be bad from that angle. ^_^v *eagerly awaiting last Star Wars* PS - if anyone wants a Star Wars t-shirt for $8 CAD ...

weather checker function!
of all the usefulness that bizwarcho provides, i feel that it is the weather checker that gives me an extra special Tingly Feeling. every morning i wake up, look out my window, am horribly deceived if there is sun anywhere, and so must roll over to check bizwarcho. usually it is, temperature-wise, Much Colder than the outside world (and my snuggly blankie) would suggest. However! tonight i realize i have no right to complain as everywhere it is 0 degrees, but for where i am, which is at a balmy 8. we should note that i'm wearing sweatshirts to bed. ah~ the freaky weakness of having lived in Lotus Land for too long~~ tragedy.

i'll tell you Shark tale~
so, *points at title* saw the movie tonight. overall, it wasn't bad. it was kinda comical, there were some allusions that had me laughing so hard, but in general, i can't say i want to buy it when it comes out on dvd. what had me laughing harder than the movie did, however, was the giant pod of chinese kids and parents that came in 20 minutes into the movie. after they seated themselves behind us, the kid directly behind me proceed to cough/sniffle/sneeze/snort for the remaining hour and a half. two of those kids who were sitting in the middle of row randomly decide to come back out and sit in the row in front of us, on their own. everything settles down. then sick kid suddenly announces (loudly, in cantonese): "i'm going to go get pop! do you want pop?" the mom: "oh... let me think... what are you getting?" kid: "pop! i'm going to get pop!" mom: "well ask and see if anyone else wants anything." kid: "i'm getting pop! do you want pop?" other kids: *mumblemumble* kid: "okay! that's ...

re: rollitos, the rolled up doritos
omg! i'm not the only one who thinks that about the new rollitos adverts!!! (see tenz' post) i was completely puzzled by the steamroller one as i was expecting a super thin dorito to be the result. i almost could not comprehend the tube-y rollito that the tv showed me. as for the one with the printing press, well that just left me feeling very sorry for the newspaper office because they'd have to clean dorito dust off their paper and their machinery. and anyone who's eaten a bag of doritos knows that dorito dust dyes everything orange for days. i am weird. this has already been established. but tenz has proven that i am not the only one. *nod*

lucy in the sky with diamonds
went to see the last of the fireworks competition today. spain put on a pretty spectacular show. they were good with some rhythms, but they seemed a little too obsessed with these... strobe-like fireworks. just... too much. my friends and i (three girls altogether) went down to the main beach at 6pm to get a spot. ^O^ we ended up camped right in front of the radio announcers, so pretty much dead center. niiiice~ the couple next to us were making out nonstop for the next 5 hours. they were well in their 50s. the group behind us were cocky-ass, know-it-all, chinese geek-boys...the type you usually find in your university anime club. 9_9 the two girls next to us were quite nice, but chain smokers. the funniest groups were the two in front of us. they were local-born chinese kids... and they dug "trenches" to delineate their "property." one group even put stuck sticks and rocks around the trench. they were actually quite selfish as both groups took up huge tracts of land for very few ...

Suitable bodies could include treaty bodies such as the Human Rights" and book two says (if i skip all the pages of table of contents): "(ii) leased without crew and operated by a person who is qualified" 2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can.

was bored and procrastinating (schoolwork, what else?). so here's the random mp3 list from my desktop. not really random now that i look at it. >_> all the songs are from the same 100 song range... oh well. can't win 'em all! 1. In Requiem - Lethanon (a song by one of my 'net friends!) 2. Final Battle - FFVIII soundtrack ( long-ass thing. 6 minutes and 44 seconds. 9_9 I feel like I'm in a video game. have urge to find gold coins or shoot things maybe sulk a bit a la Squall ) 3. Rebel Alliance vs. Imperial Forces - no idea? (a fun lil' techno thing with samples of dialogue and effects from the Star Wars movies) 4. The Sound of an Atom Splitting - supposedly from one FF game or another (techno mix) 5. Little Black Backpack - Stroke 9 (randomness?) 6. Back on the Rock - Initial D soundtrack (ah Eurobeat~ English words put together simply because they fit the rhythm) 7. Rhythm Emotion - TWO-MIX (Gundam Wing soundtrack) 8. All I Really Want - Kim Lucas (Eiffel 65 Mix) (I love this song! ...

a dr. nick moment!
so do we remember that weirdie random episode of the simpsons where lisa builds a grammar robot, marge cuts off homer's thumb, and bart has a little escapade with the fireworks-importing mafia? well, in that episode, homer goes to dr. nick's to get his thumb sewn back on, but arrives to see that the clinic has burned down. and you hear dr. nick say: "what? *in*flammable means *flammable*? who knew?" well... i just had a dr. nick moment where i read: "The Declaration of St. Petersburg, which prohibited the use of explosive or inflammable projectiles..." and i thought to myself: "really? you'd think they'd rather prohibit *flammable* projectiles." *dies of embarrassment*

the MP3 meme (pt. 1)
i don't know if y'all see the meme-things that float around livejournals, but they're little brief questionaires that you post on your blog. This one here goes: open winamp and place ALL of your mp3s on your playlist. then set the thing to "random" and list the first 20 songs to come up, no matter how bizarre or embarrassing. Part 1 - from the laptop 1. “Lu:na” – Gackt (hmm why do I have this??? O_o it’s okay, I guess I kinda like it. ^_^;;) 2. “Snow Drop” (instrumental) – L’Arc en Ciel (also do not know why I have this as I’ve never listened to L’Arc before ^O^;;;) 3. Track 4 from the Para Para Sakura sdtrk (I don’t think it has a name? I ripped this myself and couldn’t find a name on the CD but it’s pretty an’ happy sounding) 4. “The Rain Leaves a Scar” – L’Arc en Ciel (again??? O_o) 5. “Jem!” - ??? (LOL!!! I LOVE JEM!!!) 6. “Gen Y Cops” (English) – Edison Chen 7. “Lucifer” – Sugizo (so query: why do I have so many j-rock stuff0rs on my laptoppie??? *peers at it* what have you ...

promises promises~
so we all know i've broken my promise to write "A Guide to Fangirl Emoticons" for this site a million times; always with the "i'll post it this weekend, tenz! for sure!" for the past 2 years. but really, that's not my fault as i still maintain that i am a figment of tenz' imagination. (either that or a little person who lives inside his computer). so either way, i think the blame for my inadequacies lies with him. on the other hand, as our great and almighty leader(?) i feel that tenz should follow through with his promises of "something new." now i'm all sad sitting here waiting for batman. ;_;

"hungry for the quest"
because i'm all set to perv over orli an' billy boyd on december 17, i'm latching on to any Lord of the Rings reference in the media. now for some reason, LoTR: RotK has decided to go with commercial endorsements... and i mean things like Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken. at first i was really confused because the TV commercials just say: "hungry for the quest?" or "hungry for the ring?" then "go to _______ for the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King meal deal!" and i'm like: "O_o what does that have to do with LoTR??? it's not like the hobbits were eating fried chicken or pizza..." then i heard the Pizza Hut commercial gloss over a word like "cinnamon ring" or something that will come with this "LoTR Meal Deal" and i'm like: _o_ but! nothing compares to the _O_ i felt when i got to KFC today and saw the big banner that advertises "Hungry for the Quest Meal Deal: add 3 chicken rings to any combo!" WHAT THE HELL IS A CHICKEN RING?????

so... bono... is giving a speech at the Liberal Party Leadership Convention. (on the subject of cancelling third world debts and giving aid to africa) he just keeps telling everyone how *nice* canada is, now *nice* canadians are, and in fact, he was nearly "niced" to death at the airport. 9_9 on a funnier note, he did say that if Canada were to take over the world they'd prolly go: "hi, could i please take that? thank you. so sorry for the inconvenience ^_^;;" which i though was terribly amusing as that's how *i* plan to take over the world... 'cept i'll also be brandishing a pointy stick. but BONO... at a CANADIAN POLITICAL CONVENTION. will wonders never cease... he's also going on about how the scariest people in the world are church-going, god-fearing folk, and soccer moms. and that the women are the one who should be organizing this relief work as people listen to mothers. *nod* weeeeeeeird.

my own personal soundtrack
so we all know i'm obsessed with movie soundtracks, do we? well, if you didn't know before, you know now. well, i ended up buying the Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl soundtrack and let me first say that i think it's a terrific soundtrack. you don't get the "yo ho, yo ho, it's a pirate's life for me" song, but the instrumentals you get are *great*. it's just like watching the movie again! and i guess that's what i like about soundtracks. i like the ones that take me through the movie again, or ones that evoke the feelings i had when watching the movie (ie. sad, nostalgic, wound up, etc). and i guess, to just bash a subject to death, don't like the Hogwart's theme because it doesn't give me any feeling. it's too... generic sounding? too much like elevator music? i dunno. ;_; anyway, so i'm driving in my lil' dark blue 2000 New Beetle (yes, i'm round an' bubbly and so must my car be), crossing Burrard St. bridge which kind of has a bit of an incline in the ...
