I need something to do while I wait for a Torchwood episode to download, so I decided I might as well get on Livejournal. However, I'm not sure it's a good idea. I rather doubt I'm able to write something in coherent English. Klaatu barada nikto.
Right now I feel dead. Stretched sort of. Like butter scraped over too much bread. I seem to have whatever bug is going around, which I think is kind of evil considering how the past week has been. I must have some really bad karma. Or the gods like to point and laugh at me. I will try to resist the urge to write a Princess Bride quote.
I always seem to get on Livejournal when my brain is mush. I wonder why that is. I probably shouldn't, since that will make me seem even more insane than I really am. At least the upside of having a brain made of mush is that I don't have to take tests. Well, I still will take them, but not today.
I realize I haven't really written anything at all. Ah well. I think I'm going to watch another kid movie today. And pretend to read Thucydides. That's probably all my brain can handle right now.

I just had my wisdom teeth out today so if any of this sounds strange even for me then don't worry. I"m mostly harmless. I always hate that you can't eat anything for 8 hours before something like that. It's not very fun for my hobbit-y nature. I am disappointed that I'm not as loopy as I thought I would be. Apparently, I just giggled incessantly when they gave me my drugs, and slept almost the entire way home. It was a little fun when I took my pain medicine because I'd be half asleep and think I was at Freed. It was disorienting to say the least. Thank goodness I'm not at college though, I know settiai and my friend Meg would have faaaaar to much fun with me. There is a silver lining however because this means I'll be able to marathon Stargate Atlantis now. I'd originally thought that I'd be lucky to construct complete sentences. The only thing that could stop me due to medicine would be sleep. Sounds beautiful right now. It'll have to wait till later though as I'm up to the "Tower of Rodney" in Atlantis.

I enjoy Atlantis more than I thought I would. Yes, it is cheesy at parts and the writers use better drugs than me (I have a feeling that came out wrong...). , but overall it is entertaining and humorous. It really snuck up on me, because I hadn't realized I'd grown to enjoy it as much as I have. I've come to one conclusion about Atlantis: I want Ronon to give me a bear hug. Granted I may not be able to breathe and he would probably break every bone in my body, but it looks like fun. I love almost every main character on Atlantis, which is somewhat surprising.

It's not like Firefly where I love love love every character. That's another thing that surprises me. I assumed I would have just one or two characters that I absolutely loved, but instead I adore all of the main characters and most of the non-main characters. It's probably the show that does that to me the most.

I'll have to make sure to listen to those John Barrowman songs eventually (right now I"m focusing on Atlantis), maybe tonight if I can tear myself away.

Sleep sounds good. I may end up having to wait for that episode of Atlantis anyway.

I have a new love and hatred in my life. I just finished obsessively watching the anime "Honey and Clover." I first wanted to watch it over a year ago after I read about it in a magazine. Mainly because one of the main characters is really short. I am a bit biased though as I'm a hobbit myself. My favorite overall character would be Morita. He's just so strange, hilarious, and random. Without him I believe the show wouldn't be half as good. Furthermore, he’s one of my all-time favorite anime characters. The main theme song kind of annoyed me at first, but after watching around 50 episodes I’ve started humming it to myself. However, that's how I am with a lot of anime openings.
The animation was excellent, along with most of the characters and voice acting. There were a few slow spots that were hard to sit through though. This driving force of this anime is the relationships between characters; it's like one big soap opera. Character A loves character B, but character B is smitten with Character C. One of the main characters, Takemoto, isn't necessarily a horrible character, but I didn't find his character as interesting as other characters. Overall it's a wonderful anime, absolutely hilarious many times. I'm sitting here chuckling to myself remembering some of the more humorous parts, which is causing my mom to think I'm stranger than she thought. Oh well, I'm used to it.
The only thing I absolutely hate about this anime is the ending. I was spoiled to a point, but I had a delusional hope it would be different. I'll just say that a couple I wanted to get together did not. It's not a tragic ending, just not happy. I suppose I have no choice but to turn to fan fiction.

I'm also becoming more and more obsessed with the Fray. I've loved them ever since they came out, but for some reason I never bought the cd. I know I will at the rate I'm going. If only because on my way back from Church tonight I heard one of my favorite songs by them several times, but always at the ending. I was ready to throw the radio out the car, but that would be rather difficult.

I'm also watching Fate Stay Night. I actually don't know if I like Honey and Clover better, but I just haven't got around to watching the rest Fate Stay Night. It's a great show, but very weird as all animes are. Many times I feel like the writers must have been on drugs to come up with certain plot elements, but usually in a good way. The main character, can't think of his name, is somewhat annoying (and stupid), but his heart is in the right place. Toshaka has to be my favorite character in that series. She can kick bum, is manipulative, and just plain cool. Another thing that endears me to the show is t hat surprisingly there aren't too many female characters that look like trollops, pretty much just one I can think of.

No specific post today, just bored so I thought I'd write something random.

My love for "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" has been re-kindled. I've always loved the show, but now I'd like to give the writers or whoever came up with what I'm referring to a big hug. Nothing monumental happened in the show, it's just proof that the people behind the show are big geeks. The episode had a part where a couple of characters were picking up hitchhikers and they passed a hitchhiker on the road in a bathrobe and pajamas holding a sign to magrathea. This was enough to set me squee-ing, which subsequently freaked my sister out. I consider it as even more proof that I have no life as I'm sitting here writing a journal entry about it. And that I'm 5 years old.

Tomorrow will be a day of sorrow and joy. It will mark the last test of my biology lab class, but it's a big evil test that will probably devour me whole. Probably should be studying, but I can't focus. I just want to get the test over with now.

Post more later, unfortunately I have to go to class.
