On an anime marathon

After more than one and a half years, I finally got my hands on the much sought after Gurren Lagann.

In our last meet-up (more than a year ago), Rey was telling me about this awesome anime that I should totally watch. That anime was Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

It was only a couple of weeks ago I managed to get the whole thing so I started watching a couple of episodes on Monday and finished the rest yesterday. Yes, I watched 25 episodes yesterday. Like whaaat?! :lol:

To be honest, I wouldn’t have picked this and followed it through. I was more of a Fullmetal Alchemist and BLEACH fan (although I haven’t followed the latter in a really long time). But when Rey told me most of the storyline and what happened in the show, I couldn’t help but catch some of his enthusiasm.

It’s a pretty good and short anime (not like those that have over 200 episodes, always littered with lousy fillers) about human evolution.

From wiki:

Gurren Lagann takes place in a fictional future in which human beings have been forced under Earth’s surface and live in isolated subterranean civilizations. These “villages” have no contact with the surface world or other villages.

Giha Village, one of the underground villages, regularly experiences earthquakes; because these earthquakes damage infrastructure, the village must constantly extend deeper into the earth—individuals relegated to this task are known as “Diggers”. Giha Village is the home of Simon, a fourteen-year-old digger who was orphaned when his parents were killed in an earthquake. Although Simon is respected by the village elders as the best of the diggers, he is ostracized by his peers. Simon discovers a special drill key deep in the ground and is soon recruited by an eccentric fellow orphan and friend named Kamina into his group, the “Gurren Brigade”. Kamina dreams of the surface world, which he once visited as a child, though he had to return home as he was too young to survive there.

Recently, while chatting online, he was telling me about another awesome anime—Eureka Seven and I started watching it today. At the moment, I’m in the 10th episode :P

I’m still trying to figure out the anime but you can read it up on wiki. What sort of sparked my interest was that Rey mentioned they surf in the air. They surf in the air! How cool is that?

He also mentioned that the female protagonist, Eureka, reminded him of me :?

Okay, back to Eureka Seven ;)

October Ladies

So the 7ners celebrated our October babies’ birthdays on Saturday at Oriole. It was the first time in a really long while that we met up on a weekend because back then someone was either busy with her significant other or with work or just isn’t free. It was also the first time in a rather long while that we ended up cam-whoring outside the cafe and bar :?

Dinner was rather fair. The food tasted good but the portions were rather small for the price we paid. But the chocolate cake was a to-die-for. It was made with really rich and good quality chocolate and if I wasn’t on a budget, I would have ordered another just for myself so I could relish every single bite :lol:

Awesome Chocolate Cake

As I mentioned that the food portions were small, dinner ended pretty early so we just sat, chilled and talked. And before we went our separate ways…

While having our “photo-shoot” (teehee), I was reminded of how we used to take a group photo on our own and suggested attempting that neoprint shot again :D

These were taken by someone back in 2004:

(I just realized… Boss, did you take them?)

And by my hand of Thor:

(Okay, I know I’m using the above term wrongly but what does it mean anyway? I tried Googling and nothing relevant came up.)

Saturday’s attempt:

The 7ners: Neoprint Style
YES! Success! :D

We also did the all-those-in-pants-take-a-picture and all-those-in-dresses-take-a-picture.

To the second October kid of the 7ners: Happy 24th Birthday Soffie Sis! Hope that you had an awesome day with your loved ones! :) It’s been a really long time and I’m glad that I’ve got you in this clique as well as the companionship of heading to hip hop gigs back in our late teens :lol: Love!

And, last but not least, (I’ll bet) the real reason why everyone bothered to read this entry is for this cutesy photo of Zayden Asher :lol: and awesome Guan :D

Guan & Zayden Asher

Can someone tell me what “by the hand of Thor” means? :roll:

Full Month

Firstly, Happy 24th Birthday Pei Wen! I’m sure you had awesome gifts. If not, wait till Saturday for your awesome gift and celebration! :lol:

Sunday was a pretty awesome day because friends and relatives finally got to meet Zayden Asher! :D

He was a sociable baby, not crying while he was being passed from a pair of arms to another. He wasn’t the only baby there though. I finally got to meet Cheyenne! Though she was exactly a month older than Zayden, the difference in their sizes was quite big. Plus, she has these huge pretty eyes. They were bigger than bambi-eyes :eek:

As I was busy running between groups of friends and relatives, I did not manage to take much photos :(

Everyone said Zayden was really cute. Guan and I couldn’t agree any less :lol: Since it was a special occasion, he was wearing his new Threadless onesie, (I love this design but my size ran out of stock.) and Guan and I wore our Missing!!! tee.

Relatives

Ooh, yes! My mother bought cakes! She wasn’t in time to order a huge cake for everyone and, instead, bought three small cakes :D

After every guest had left, everyone was quite tired. I mean, my siblings KO-ed in the living room:

And so…

… today’s the big day!

Let me just say that no, I’m not excited and, no, I’m not nervous. I’m just very, very sleepy! :cry:

Last week the 7ners threw a hen night for me. It wasn’t anything riotous but we had fun dinnering at a pasta/pizza place and then a girls’ night at a hotel. They presented me with… cupcakes with a pair of boobs on them :? Along with two lingerie sets from Pierre Cardin. Well, thank you very much! As girly as it was :D

It was Lynn’s wedding last Sunday and I must say: Congrats Lynn! I’m happy for you :)

Anyway, I didn’t do much on the eve besides collecting the gowns and flowers. In fact, I had to settle quite a number of last minute stuff. I also did my nails :? Something that I really don’t enjoy. My french manicure is destroyed but it’s not that obvious from afar. NO MORE MANICURES FOR ME! :mad:

I should really turn in. The beautician would be here in less than three hours! :eek:

one of those weekends

So it was Jo’s 24th birthday and we celebrated at Spageddies. This year for her, we didn’t get a cake so we could invest more on the present ;)

The food was disappointing and it would probably be the last time I ever dine there. Then again, the first and last time I dined there before Friday was almost a good five years ago. A lot has changed.

Saturday was spent lazing around and watching the first season of Prison Break again.

On Sunday, Guan and I went to Funan DigitaLife Mall to get my DVD fixed. Apparently there’s something on my discs but I have no idea what :? And when we asked around, apparently, no one in the IT mall knew what the hell was wrong with my precious DVD :(

After that, he spotted this 1TB harddrive that came with a free speaker that he wanted some time ago (the speaker, that is. The harddrive was something he wanted a couple of weeks ago after his iMac was running out of space). And since I just received some money thanks to the government, we splurged on it at one go. So now I’m a poor girl :?

Anyway, we were at the bookstore and I saw awesome cookbooks so for the past couple of days, I have been going through food and baking blogs and now I just feel like hitting the kitchen and making a mess in it. The problem is that I don’t have an oven. The microwave died like a few months back :(

And I gave up finding an admin job. Decided to go with the boring bar job. There has been some issues but I guess I’m just making waves wherever I go. I can never get along with the management. Seriously :P

Bumming makes me really lazy

So after scoring through the classifieds daily over the last two weeks, trying to find a decent admin/data entry job, I have failed rather miserably.

And aside from doing the above mentioned, I have been slacking around at home, re-watching awesome HIMYM episodes along with my Legend of the Condor Heroes DVDs and, well, sleeping.

I don’t like not having anything to do because it makes me rather lazy.

Not to mention that even though I have thought about changing my layout (it’s been up for like, more than a year. Or is it two years now?) I just can’t get my creative juices together to come up with a neat and awesome layout like this current one. (I should mention that Alexis Bledel is still really pretty.)

Anyway, I have finally upgraded to WordPress 2.7.1 and I’m still trying to get used to the new interface :?

Rey‘s finally in Australia and I will really miss him. No more 3-am-Carl’s-Junior-burgers for me, I guess. Or awesome talk and HIMYM references :(

Anyway, Xavier introduced me to a bar job and I’m hoping to start next week and switch to full-time next month. So, no more hoping-for-an-admin-job for me. It’s back to the bar! :D

As a final note, Tarmidzie told me that the Coldplay concert tickets have all been sold out :( All I can say is: SO FAST?! :cry:
