Oh, I am so 21 right now. :D

The partying began Friday night after D&D. Mike made sure to wrap us up at 11:30 so we could sprint down to the Celtic Knot. We got there, by my watch, at 3 minutes to midnight. We placed ourselves at the bar, were carded (well, I was-- then the bartender got so caught up in the fact that it was my birthday that she forgot to card everyone else!).

Then there was an argument about what time it actually was. My watch said exactly midnight. Jeremy's said 11:59, so he thought we should count down. Then the bartender says, "Well, my clock says 12:01, so if you average it..."

So we just decided to toast and drink. :D

Thus the picspam begins )

My LJ is 4 years old today! It's officially out of the toddler stage.

Here is my journal's horoscope for today (from futurescopes.com):
There are favorable energies now for financial dealings. It's also a good time to think seriously about your career. If you make that extra push to assert yourself in business now--unfinished business will be completed successfully. A superior at work needs your input. Do a little free-flow thinking and you will come up with something new. Almost as though you were a performer, the secret to your success is in leaving-them-wanting-more! This afternoon a friend surprises you. This evening you will find yourself engaged in cozy, instructive conversations with friends and loved ones. There is some special music. An emphasis on close relationships, as well as enjoying the celebrations makes for a perfect day--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


Also, from the Girl Who Brought You the Code Monkey Dance comes the Don't Make Me Dance Dance. It's mostly just a second pajama-dance, partly a thank-you to everyone who made the Code Monkey Dance a hit (so close to 40k hits right now! SO CLOSE!).
This one took way more takes than Code Monkey to get one I liked enough... and it was really hot in my room, too. I had to drink copious amounts of water everytime I finished a take. But it ended up being worth it, methinks.

"Lost" returns tonight. According to the commercial, this season will be all about people tackling other people. HOT.

Today, with its raining drearyness, was probably meant to be a stay-in-bed-til-noon day. And yet, I got up at 10 and went grocery shopping. Blurgh.

However, I had a mahvelous birthday, and I have pictures to prove it.

Bowling! And Flattop )

...and then we went to Blockbuster with the intention of buying one movie and got a total of 13 XD And then back to the apartment for carrot cake and The 40-Year Old Virgin. Twehee.

Also, at game last night, I learned the true feeling of having d00m come descending over me when I heard my enemies flag down an ST and say, "We need to summon someone."

a_leprechaun: (the fool)
I got two incredible birthday presents today. One of them, I gave myself. XD

The one I did not give myself came from [livejournal.com profile] adam_pb. With his mad photoshop skillz, he made a tarot deck for me. Well, just the major arcana, and it's on a poster, not actual cards. But still. So shiny.

So then I'm checking my e-mail, and I find a "Happy Birthday" message from astrology.com. Oh, that's nice, I think, assuming it's just some generic message inviting me to purchase stuff from their website. But I click it anyway. And one of the offers, as it turns out, is a free star from the Universal Star Council. As in, I get to name a star. For free. And I get to pick the constellation it's in. Joy!!*

Of course, for the official certificate and all that nifty stuff they still charged 20 dollars ("Ah, that's how they getcha," I said). But, eh. It was worth 20 bucks for something that would have normally cost upwards of 60. And it's my birthday anywhoo.

As for what I named the star? That's for me to know. And [livejournal.com profile] herod_the_nut to find out. Nyah.
(actually, I'll tell y'all later. But I want him to be the first to know ^__^)

I know, I know. I promise I'll shut up about my birthday. But only after it's over. :P

*In case anyone had a mind to inform me, I know the name I gave won't be used by real astronomers (them and their silly number system). Still, it's an actual star, and the website doesn't give two people the same star. So it still counts, says I.

Queez Attack! )

I'm turning 20 in 5 days. Some part of my brain is trying desparetely to make me freak out about this, but it just ain't working.

I do think it's rather cool, though. Two whole decades. Which doesn't sound like much when you say it that way.

I still feel like a child.
a_leprechaun: (bonkers toon criminal)
It's weird... My parents have been pestering me for some time about what I want for my birthday, and I finally came up with something, and told them, and now I feel guilty for asking for it.
*smacks self* I should NOT be feeling guilty about asking for something I want. Especially when they've been asking for present suggestions. *eyeroll*
That something was Mother 3 by the way, which is released in Japan in 3 days. Mwahaha. The text is all gonna be in ふりがな and カタカナ (furigana and katakana, the two most basic Japanese alphabets), so I should be able to read it, or at least figure things out.

16)) The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown
^ Just about everyone I talked about this book with had a different reaction to it, but my Dad said I would really like it, and his predictions about my taste usually turn out to be true. So I bought it yesterday at 3 PM, and finished it today at 1 XD That, my friends, is what we call a page-turner. Exciting, if not terribly well-written. And now I can say I read it before the movie came out. Huzzah.

I should probably be studying.
a_leprechaun: (emily mystery)
It's only Monday, but I already wish it were the weekend. Why?

1)) I have a paper due Thursday, so it will be done by then.
2)) DCP (which, I just discovered, I will be able to make after all. Some of it, anyway)
3)) Passover. My personal favorite of the Jewish holidays, because it's so family-oriented. For those not Jew-y enough to know, the celebration (called a seder) is a traditional dinner of sorts, with specific reasons for the specific foods and certain ceremonial things said throughout. My cousin is holding a seder on Saturday at UChicago. Since it is to be composed entirely of college students, I imagine there will be much silliness and tomfoolery dispersed throughout the ceremony. Squee.
4)) [livejournal.com profile] herod_the_nut's birthday is on Friday, and we are gonna par-tay in Chicago.

So, yes.
On the up-side, it is freakin' GORGEOUS today, and promises to be so throughout the week (temperature-wise, anyway. might be a little rain).

15)) Dave Barry Does Japan, Dave Barry

Wikipedia meme! (from [livejournal.com profile] arakay

Look up your birth date (sans year) on wikipedia, and post 3 neat facts, 2 births and 1 death from that day.

1253 - Nichiren, a Japanese Buddhist monk, propounds Nam Myoho Renge Kyo for the first time and declares it to be the essence of Buddhism, in effect founding Nichiren Buddhism. (How they figured it out is beyond me, but hey. Awesome.)
1947 - Thor Heyerdahl and five crewmates set out from Peru on the Kon-Tiki to prove that Peruvian natives could have settled Polynesia.
1980 - Nintendo releases their first Game & Watch game, Ball.

1937 - Saddam Hussein, former leader of Iraq (Hitler was also a Taurus. I wonder if this bodes ill.)
1941 - Ann-Margret, Swedish-born actress

1945 - Benito Mussolini, Italian fascist dictator (b. 1882)

That day's not too far off, either.
a_leprechaun: (bunnie rabbot)
This LJ is 3 years old today. :) In memorium (since I've never remembered to celebrate before this year), I direct you to the first post I ever made. Aah, the days of early LoTR-fangirlery. And the days when you still needed a code to create a journal! o_O Yipes.

It also happens to be Eddie Izzard's birthday*. Which is pretty rockin'.

Since my mind was wandering as usual during Shakespeare class, I drew a human version of Bunnie Rabbot ::points to icon::

Image hosting by Photobucket
She would either have short hair or pigtails, I can never decide.
But she has got to be my next Halloween costume... I wanted to do it this past year, but I ran out of time. >_< Aside from BONE's Thorn, she's one of my favorite fictional female characters (aren't I literary).

And it saddens me that only one person has looked at the BONE pics. Go lookee, they make me happy. ^____^

*And Charles Dickens' and Garth Brooks'!

P.S. My journal is an Aquarius, which means it is friendly, original, independant, unpredictable and detached. Here's its horoscope for today:

Travel plans may include the children. Singles should take initiative in romance. Creative types will enjoy increased productivity. The question of how to respond to another's proposal makes you uncomfortable.

P.P.S. And since he wouldn't allow comments on the entry, could someone please tell me what holiday [livejournal.com profile] jdezredel is talking about here? *iz confuzzled*
a_leprechaun: (pippin peaceful)
Saw the Hitchhiker's Guide movie, which is absoluetly brilliant. And I definitely have my Halloween costume for this year. I'll hardly have to buy a thing (those of you who know my wardrobe and/or the type of characters I tend to like--any guesses?).

Anyway. YESTERDAYWASMYBIRTHDAYWHEEE!!! It was pretty much like any other day, except with a lot more presents. :)
My First Present. I love Nell ([livejournal.com profile] rosesfade) to itty bits and pieces.
I gave out candy, I received a hand-knit scarf and the "Frogs" soundtrack and many cards, with more stuff on its way. :) Also a poster with my face on it. It is advantageous to have a film major friend, yup. XD
Munchies were desserts from a local bakery, so I did indeed have birthday cake, albeit unofficial.

And today there was pizza and a special cookie and a viewing of "Dead Poets Society". Goooood times.


Your Brain is 53.33% Female, 46.67% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female

You are both sensitive and savvy

Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed

But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

Your element is Air: Carefree, lovable, fun and
childish. Arent you cute! Your just full of
childhood spunk and happiness! Hey who said
being young was a bad thing? You have a keen
understanding of whats good in life and choose
to remain happy rather than get too upset over
things. Life is fun, who wants to be troubled
by grown-up problems? Being as capable of love
as you are you will make a wonderful parent if
and when you choose to grow up. Love is a
mystery because you only want friends not love
interests, games are better than relationships
with the opposite sex. You have what everyone
is searching for, that so called 'fountain of
youth' deep inside. You can come across as
naive and childish at times. But who cares what
they think, lets go play tag!

Well, I ended up with 9 pages for what is supposed to be a 10-page paper. But seeing as how I got an A last time on one that was 3 pages when it was supposed to be 4, I think Prof. Lyons might not mind so much.

At least I hope not. ::knocks on wood::

EDIT: Oh, and it's my Dad's birthday! ^____^ He's 55 today! He's a speed limit XD

It is also Taylor Hanson's birthday. I don't know how old he is. Lower twenties by now?

Also, this is what I did Saturday night.

That is all.

(Beware. Randomness Ahead.)


Even though it is only a $20 gift certificate to Pickwicks, it makes me so very happyish.

Boston trip begins tomorrow (or rather... ::looks at clock:: ...today...). Singing, swimming, whale watching. Yay.

I am glad that I know the people I know, because they confuse me sometimes and it's good to have people whose viewpoints, backgrounds, beliefs etc differ from your own. Still, though, I miss the days when I had someone I could really click with...

Speaking of which, any news about your birthday party, Trin? :-D

La dee da.
a_leprechaun: (emily_dragon)

Your strongest virtue is your Compassion,
visualized here by the tarot card 'The Lovers'.
Your actions are guided by your devotion to
love. Truth and courage may be important as
well, but above all it is compassion that is
paramount to you.

My cousin's production of Pirates of Penzance last night was rained on- and therefore unfinished :-( So we're going to try and see it again tonight. Gilbert & Sullivan = Happiness!

Ashley's party was super-happy-fun. Pray for Mojo was rockin'. ^.^

So, that's pretty much all that's going on in my life- oh yeah, except for the fact that I'M TURNING 17 IN TWO DAYS!!!! Wheee!!!! I still gotta figure out what I want to do for party-type stuff. I'll get back to y'all on Monday. :-D
