Haha, look I'm all not dead and stuff anymore. whew. so yeah been busy with school and other insanity. don't work at suncoast anymore, thank the gods for that.

I made a new journal, that I was gonna use for my FFXI chara, but now I think I'm just gonna switch over to updating that. I am unsure right now what will become of this journal. I will probably return to it one day. Anyway the new one is delenn_xi

woohoo two updates! I rock!

So I guess no takers on the FFXI thing. Eh, whatever.

Also, on a side note..... GO RED SOX! Yeah buddy. Kick some ass guys. Woohoo.

Oh and Tess, I'm sure you know this already so you won't care but I found out yesterday at work. Firefly on DVD 12/09/03. I promise to buy it.

I have bronchitis or something, it sucks hardcore. I have to go fight Steve for who gets to play FFXI right now.

Later

So, I am trying to update this thing. I just always forget.

I am 20 now. I feel old kinda. I know it's lame, but I do.

I went home for the weekend. It was really great. My mom's new house is awesome. I am so proud of her. I hope she knows it. I wish I could live there with her....I think Steve hates the idea though. I don't know what to do to be honest. This whole thing with school and stuff is really making me crazy. Sigh.

When I was home we went to the mall. And GameStop was having this sale thing, and Stev bought me a Dreamcast! Woohoo! Finally. I have only been asking him forever. So now we have sega goodness too. I also found a copy of skies of arcadia there, so I was like thrilled. Yay for DC!

FFXI beta is over soon. I will miss it. But I will go right out and buy the PC version on the 29th so I won't have to miss it for too long. I went to the gamestop in nashua and reserved a copy because they finally had t-shirts there. I am such a t-shirt whore.

Witch Hunter Robin boxes came into the store the other day. We only got two, so you bet your ass I put one aside for myself. Work isn't too bad. Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it rocks. I talked to some kid the other day for awhile about Final Fantasy and anime. Now how many of you get to do that at work? :P Hehe. Work also lets us dress up. Cosplay at work. It rocks. Too bad I don't have costumes for all the damn movies that come out. Next one is the Matrix. Too bad I am trenchcoat-less.

I feel like crap right now. My asthma and allergies have been awful lately. I am coughing like insanely. I am going to the doctor today, so hopefully it'll be better.

I think that's all for now. Is anyone else buying the PC release of FFXI? I was thinking of putting a linkshell together for release, so I was just curious. It'd be cool to play with you guys!

Later!

I am bad updater monkey. Sorry. I'm sure no one is overly concerned with my lack of updating anyways, but I figured I'd apologize.

Crazy shit has been happening lately. I've been working a lot. Working at Suncoast was a bad idea. I spend more money there now then before I got the job there. But I get a good discount on anime and shit, and I get to take home posters and displays so that is all much fun. Plus the people I work with are cool. So yay.

I'm not doing school this semester. Argh, it's a really long story. Basically I withdrew from this semester. It kind of sucks. I need time to figure out what the hell I want to do. It seems like everyone else knows what they want to do, and here I am a junior in college and I have no freaking idea. Sigh. I need to unscrew up my head. Let's hope that all goes well.

Went to the Renn Faire yesterday. Toooooo much fun! I wish we could have stayed forever and I want to go back like a million times but I doubt we will get the chance to. I bought a kick-ass outfit which I like love to death. It's red and black, kinda pirate-y. Oooooh I love it. I really need a hat though. I almost bought one but we had very little money left and I wanted Steve to buy his hat instead cause he hadn't bought anything. He actually wore his armor stuff that he made for Otakon for the beginning of the day, and like the minute we got there someone was like "Kain from FF4 right?" So I think that made him happy. Hehe. Arrrr matey.

Michelle's wedding is like super soon. It's scary. But at least after the wedding I get to dye my hair back to funtastic goodness.

My birthday is soon so yay for me. Yes thats right on Tuesday I will achieve big ol level 20. Unfortunately I don't get too many good spells or abilities at this level. But it's only a year away from 21 and that should be cool. Whoo I'm such a nerd. Man, I feel old. No more teenage-ness. Kinda scary. But cake and presents should help. Hahaha.

Well this is long enough I'm sure. I need to eat some food anyways. No work today! Huzzah!!

2:59 pm - It lives!
Whew. Look at me! I'm back! Wheee!! Hey, does anyone even remember me anymore? Haha, it feels like I haven't been online in forever. Things are slowly returning to some form of normalcy. We are back downstairs now, and I am reunited with my Hal (my PC) and all my lovely consoles which I have missed. I will briefly update you all on the lameness that has been my life. Warning: This may be long.....

Finally got a damn job. It's not physics, it's retail. I work at Suncoast. Blargh. It's not too bad, except that I look so silly in khakis. But discounts on anime make me go 'Squeeeee'. I get to bother customers about anime and stuff, and most of the people I work with are pretty cool. It's not bad as far as work goes I guess.

Speaking of anime, I have been watching a ton of it lately. Snagged the Eva box finally at Otakon for super cheap so good for me. I signed up for netflix and it rocks hardcore. I rented Rah-Xephon and it ruled, so I went out and bought the vol 1 with the box. Tasty. I've also been watching a ton of sci-fi stuff too. I am slowly corrupting Steve. Mwahaha. Ah, and the Two Towers came out like the first week I was working, so damn right I snagged that buddy. Rockin'.

Finally plunked down the money for a gameboy SP and now I dont know how I ever lived without one. It makes my GBA look like a pile of feces. Well maybe not quite that bad, but it rocks. Also picked up Lunar Legend. So shiny, I love it. Also, my Xbox finally has a reason to live. I finally got KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic). God this game rules like nobodies business. Steve is playing dark side and I am playing light. Hehe, funness.

I want to go to another con so bad. I will have to wait until Anime Boston though I guess. Oh well, *crycry*. I have like a million cosplay thingies I wanna do, I dont know how many will come to fruition though. The ones I can remember right now are: Ritsuko, Delenn (my chara from FFXI), Akane, Guu, Haruka and theres more, but I cant think of them right now. Hopefully I get to do at least one or two before AB.

I started school Tuesday. Blech. It's not bad I guess, but I really am too lazy for it right now. And I'm so anti-social it's sad. Tra la Tra la.

I have to go to work soon. Yucky. It's funny how this update of my life is mostly nerdom and video games. Squishy. Haha, I am queen nerd! Goodbye I need to play KOTOR now. Shiny!

PS: Isn't my icon purty? Yay for classical sculpture!

12:54 pm - Real quick update-ness
I will be brief. My life right now is all turned upside down so I doubt I'll be online for a few weeks. Try not to miss me. haha

Otakon was loads of fun. I didn't get to meet anyone, but I still had a great time. I wish it didn't have to end.

Things here are quite insane. Steve and I are living in the living room for the next two weeks (long story). So no more online or FFXI for me for a while. *cries*

I have a job interview in a few hours. I hope I get it. The way my luck is going I won't though. The past two weeks everything that can go wrong has been doing so, and then some. The world hates me I think.

Well, outta time. I'll be back...eventually......

Phew. Wow, yesterday sucked so much. WORST DAY EVER!

As of last night I was reasonably certain we would have to not go to Otakon. I was so upset. As of this morning, things look okay, and we will hopefully be going. Barring any bad news from the doctor, we will be there. We were originally gonna leave at like 7 or 8 am, to be down there at some reasonable hour. It's about a 6 or 7 hour drive. So, now, hopefully we will be outta here by like 1 and still make it down in time to pick up our badges. Gah! I hate it when shit goes wrong at the very last minute.

I am still incredibly excited though. Everything is basically done. Steve still has to paint the overcoat stuff on his armor though, and I should be packing right now. Ew, I hate packing. I am so exhausted. I had to sleep on the floor last night, and it sucked.

Well, Wheeeee! I hope I will meet some of you at Otakon! So much excitement!!!!! *dies*

2:52 am - Are you jazzed Zorak? I'm jazzed!
Yeah, I'm jazzed too Space Ghost! Wheeeee. Otakon!

Costumes almost done! Wheeeee! Please sky, don't rain tomorrow. Armor needs a-paintin'!

Steve has some remarkable ability to always make me smile, even when I am sooooo mad at him. He did it again today. It's just not fair. I guess he's really a keeper, eh? It was very sweet what he did. Ack, too much mushy. I apologize.

So, I guess no one is interested in the t-shirt thingy. Oh well. No big deal really. I likes em.

Wheeeeee!

3:44 am - I was amazed to think that you would take the candy with you too
Ahhh!! Too much updating from me!!

My costumes are just about done. I need to make the hair thing and paint my armbands and buy a little more lacing for them. Wheee. Thanks to steve's mom. Too bad she was being such a bitch today. It rained today, so no armor painting happened. Will it get done?! We will see!!

Steve and I came up with like a thousand t-shirt ideas. We are wondering if people would buy them. They would have silly little Final Fantasy things on them. He photoshopped a few ideas, I threw them up on our makeshift website, if anyone cares. http://bahamut.mine.nu/images/
I think some of them are kinda dumb, and we came up with much funnier saying things, we just haven't made the art for them.

Poor Sora needs antibiotics. He is such a sad looking kitty. Poor kitty. I will go snuggle him.

Wheeee.....almost Otakon!!!! *giddydeath*

1:41 pm - if there is a hell, I'm sure this is how it smells
Bah, this morning has been crap-a-licious. I slept terribly. I kept waking up. I have to take Sora to the vet in a half-hour. I hope everything is okay with him. When I get back I should probably work on costume stuff, but I want to play FFXI!! I haven't gotten to play in forever it feels like. I'm still only on level 10. Argh. Damn me for being such a nice girlfriend. I always let Steve play when he comes home from work. Even though, technically, it's my beta. Oh well, I'm too nice. Haha, yeah right.

I'm thinking of changing all my nicknames for stuff, so they are all the same. I will probably change my c.com name after Otakon. It's not like anyone even knows who I am anyways, haha. I hardly ever post. I don't know if I will change my LJ name, probably not, because I just don't really care.

Steve and I are working on T-shirt designs. That should be fun. We wanna make t's to wear for the days we're not in costume at Otakon. I hope they come out good. We are also making stickers for the car. Wheeee. The nerd-mobile returns. Too bad we didn't get our vanity plates in time. Bah, whatever.

Otakon is so close. *dies* I feel like there is so much left to do! I dont know when the hell we are gonna paint this damn armor, it's supposed to rain every freaking day. Hmm. I only have minor stuff left to do on my costume. So good for me. I dyed my hair green. Yum. It is very bright. I forgot how much I like dying my hair. Whee. Steve helped, good job steve! It's a different green than my costumes, but bah, I dont really care. At least it's green. I still feel funny about wearing the two costumes, since their both the same character. But it was a lot of work, so I guess I oughta.

I should stop typing now. I sure am writing an awful lot. I want a Richard Shindell CD! Because whee, i am a dork and a half. Alright kitty, it's vet time....

I can't sleep.

Ever listen to a song that kind of gives you the chills. Gosh, I had forgotten how much I love this song. Maybe it's just because I know the story behind it. I highly recommend it, although it's most unlike the kind of music anyone else likes. But still, it's an amazing song and story.....*sigh* I'm a dork.

Gah. My good mood is all drained out for this evening. Now I feel kinda crappy. I played FFXI yesterday night until 6 or 7 am. Finally got to level 10. Huzzah for me. Worked on costume stuff today, I am the eyelet queen. Will work on costume stuff tomorrow. Steve's armor, gah, it's tough.

Steve got our car towed (accidentally of course) today. So that was a nice hundred bucks down the freakin drain. I hope we have money for Otakon. I should go to sleep, I feel like crap and I bet I will have to wake up at some reasonable hour tomorrow. My sleep schedule is so screwed up.

Hmmm. Here is the randomness that has been the past few days, in bullet form, for your convenience:

- Been playing a ton of FFXI. Been watching Steve play a ton of FFXI. This game has my soul firmly in its grasp. And I likes it.
- Worked on costumes. Almost done. Need details and accessories and such. Steve's armor needs painting. I still feel self-conscious (read: fat) in mine. I am working on getting over it.
- Went over our finances again. We have more money now. Huzzah! I am super excited for Otakon. *dies from the excited-ness*
- Sora (kitty) had his surgery. He is so pathetic. Link didn't get his, so that's just more money to spend later. We also postponed Michelle's shower, which is more money for spending later.
- Must...register...for...classes. Yeah, I procrastinate. So kill me.
- I don't know why I keep bothering to vote for the cosplay meetup thing. No one ever votes, or winds up going it seems. I don't even know how the damn thing works!
- Emailed my professor from last semester about working in his lab. That would totally rock my socks. I would get to make lasers. So shiny.......

And now the bit of news that made my year!

- Went to the Sox-Yanks game the other night. Sox won baby! Awesome game. But more importantly, guess who was there? James Earl Jones. That's right baby. Darth-fucking-Vader! Dear god, I was a happy nerd! He even spoke (yes, SPOKE) the national anthem. Aaaaaaah. TOO AWESOME! *dies*

Gyah. I am in a crappy mood and my head hurts a lot. I have been/will be working on costumes a lot and playing FFXI. I don't feel like writing a real update right now, but I'm pretty sure no one really cares anyways...

4:04 am - "stupid satan, he ran right by me"
Tehe. These are the kinds of funny quotes that come out of Steve while he's playing FFXI. It made me laugh a ton, even if it isn't really that funny.

So, the video card came Monday and Steve set it up that night. We had some problems configuring the PS2 controller for my PC, but after many long hours it all worked out. Go Steve! So due to lack of sleep he didn't go to work today. Which was nice for me, cause I sure am sick and tired of being home all alone. So we played FFXI like...all day. It was awesome beyond awesome. The new video card makes the game look amazing. Plus we use the TV out so the game is on the TV. Nice.

We worked on Steve's armor this weekend. Goddamn is that a tough project. It still isn't done, but hopefully it will be soon. I think it's gonna look really cool. The bodice and the skirt are very nearly done for my Rydia costume. I love them to death. I had Steve take some pics of me in the costume, but I looked at them and I look terrible! I am worried about wearing the costume a little. It shows a lot more skin than I am used to (seeing as how I am used to showing NO skin whatsoever) and I think I look terribly fat in it. Steve says it looks fine, but I think he is required to say that by the boyfriend code. *sigh* I really like the costume, I just don't want to make it look terrible by wearing it on my not so very nice body. Argh, this is bothering me. Something else to add to my pile of ever-growing worries.

I found and made a bunch of icons. Too bad I can only have three at a time. Oh well. Yay for new icon-ness.

I watched a totally awesome show on PBS I think it was, last night. It was all about the Donner party. Wow, I totally didn't know the real story. I am amazed at the will of those people. If I was there, I sure wouldn't have made it out alive. Wow. Awesome show. I'm such a science/history show nerd.

I know I had more stuff I wanted to write about, but this entry is already damn long (sorry!!!) and totally pointless (sorry again!). Bah, I'm off to stress about stuff.

4:21 am - really bad eggs....
Yo Ho! Damn, I really need to fix my sleep schedule. This going to bed at 5am and waking up at noon probably won't work for much longer.

Steve and I have been playing a fair amount of FFXI. We share like good kids. It's a ton of fun, especially since I'm beginning to figure it out a little. Hehe, note the new icon.

Oh wait, life? What's that? Hehe. I haven't been online as much, but I'm sure no one has even noticed enough to miss me. I've also become a bit...well...disenchanted I guess with the cosplay.com forums. It seems....well, less fun. Eh, whatever, it's more time for video games.

Went to see Pirates again today. Haha. I love this movie. I wish Steve had been on the ride, so he would appreciate some of the scenes. Ah, I love you movie. I will be buying this movie on DVD. I wish I was a pirate....

Tomorrow will be working on costume day, hopefully. Or, more likely, watching Steve's mom work on them and wishing I could do something more constructive than watching. Too bad I suck. Oh well.

I'm not even tired, but I guess I ought to sleep. Oh well. Drink up me hearties. Yo Ho!

Holy fucking fuck. Pardon the language everyone, but honestly, those are the only words I have. It's so beautiful. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about the beta. I swear, I think I was near tears for the opening cinema. I know this makes me like a total nerd and a half, but I can't help it. So....much....pretty. And I haven't even gotten to sit down with it for a really long time yet! I got to make my character and play for a bit on Steve's laptop. And we just ordered a new GeForce card (my old one died a sad, sad death). So as soon as that comes...well....there will be no stopping me! Mwaha!

I love you Square, will you have my babies?

*dies a happy, happy death*
