The trip was...


Well, it was. It's over now.

Got back, went through about fifteen emails on my school email, six chapters of silly manga that I only read so that someday I will know they are over and done with, a gaggle of webcomics with backlog... most importantly, "Spinnerette" and "Grim and Mandy", the only two of which I remember being of any value.

I got on WoW for a spell. Spoke to the guild mom. Apparently the plan was to put me on rotation when they're done with progression, on account of my lag and something else I can't remember. I think she was trying to word "you aren't doing as much as you should be with the gear you have" without actually spelling it out to me, to be nice. I can't say that knowing that I probably won't see the inside of a raid other than maybe Baradin Hold for a month or more, or perhaps ever, brings me grief. I'm rather happy the task of asking to be taken out of the regular raid has been taken out of my hands, for all the grief the whole business has given me.

I also took the "initiative", and told her about how quitting has been sitting on my mind for a time, that I only stayed because I love all the people in the guild so much and I love playing with them (the ones I know anyway, not all the initiates and newbies and such). So that's done.

The bad thing about this is that although there is now less of a reason for me to be on, there is now less of a push for me to come out and say "I quit" because I can't take it anymore. Now it's down to "do you enjoy playing at all?". A question I can't actually say no to. There are dailies which suck, yes, but I would enjoy leveling my druid and death knight up to 85 and maybe making another Worgen or Draenei, cause I do love both those starting areas.

I also stayed up late talking to a friend about "Looking For Group", which I suppose must be added to the three webcomics of importance, since it was actually funny for once.

I didn't eat anything from 11:30 AM yesterday until about 11:50 AM today. I don't count the four starburst I had around midnight. I could, I suppose. I'll say "I ate four starbursts in 24 hours." There.

And I stayed up till 1:40 AM and woke up around 8:30. I finished that last Dark-Hunter short story and started the second "Chronicles of Nick". Played some Pokemon. I have a Flareon now! I also organized. That's about it. After that I went and met up with Dad and his wife at the theater to see "Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows Part 2". It was rather good, actually. The ending was um.... interesting. What they did with the Epilogue. They basically took the actors and "aged" them. I think they reasoned that people could take it any number of ways: 1) It's the same character, just older and the face is there to make you remember who it is, 2)  People wouldn't get it if you had some different actors playing the parts and 3) It would be neat enough as it looked. Honestly it wasn't so bad. A little strange... probably because they gave some adults the faces of teenagers, who haven't fully developed their faces yet. Ginny was especially creepy. Malfoy was supposed to look funny and Ron wasn't so bad. Harry was weird because a little voice in the back of my head kept saying "But he's SHORT in real life".

It was weird, but eh. Cute. And strange. And a little alarming. I blame watching a Disney movie in thinking in "Beauty and the Beast".

Overall, though, the movie was pretty good. They didn't actually have Ron kill Nagini, which it at first sounded like they were going to do.

It's just funny that Neville's so tall.

People cried when we saw Fred's body and the bodies of Tonks and Remus and such. Even when Severus died. But then when Voldemort died, everyone was silent, which is a dur, I know. But there was this one person behind us who cried out "Oh no! Not Voldemort!" Or something. It was funny. Kind of made the rather dramatic (and well-done, despite being off-story) moment a little anti-climactic.

So they had a full-length trailer for the next "Sherlock Holmes", a teaser for "Batman Rises", and a trailer for a revamped "Thundercats" series which looks NEAT. But I agree with this second-highest comment person: "WHERE THE FUCK IS PANTHRO?" It's not like they'd be the first show with the token black person. Have I NOT gone over this before? EVERY show is doing it now. According to the ever unbiased absolutely true wikipedia, Panthro is a confirmed character. Les hava looksee somewheres elsewhere. Well it does also list an actor who's going to be his voice actor so... maybe this is legit.

So i just found a website with a picture of the main cast. Well, some of them anyway. it's got Lion-O, Tigra, Cheetara, Snarf, and a very beefed out Panthro. I think we have a winner. Woot.

Aight I'm done. Off to new horizons.

I finished “Marley & Me”. I laughed and cried in the end. I guess putting Marley down reminded me that I never have said goodbye.

Not to Perm, Goldy, Grandpa or Grandmommy.

The book opened up old wounds, really. I guess it would seem a little strange to connect two of my grandparent's deaths with putting down a dog. But reading that led me to think of Perm and Goldy and after that to other losses.

I didn't cry all that much at Grandmommy's funeral. And I never really said goodbye. I guess this was my chance to shed some of those held-back tears.

I remember crying for Grandpa. I must have had my head buried in the sheets of my bed for at least half an hour when I got the news.

I think I cried for Perm and Goldy. I hardly remember. It was too long ago. I remember I did for Perm. I remember when I walked into Dad's room, and he told me. That was all. Then I walked into my room and cried some. Then Dad walked by the door and I stopped. I can't cry in front of others for some reason. Too embarrassing or something.

I remember crying when Dad gave me the news for Grandmommy. I turned away, and did my bit. We didn't say anything. He didn't talk to me. I think he looked at me once or twice. But he didn't talk. He left me alone. I guess I'm happy he understands me enough to do that. I don't think Mom would have. I could still feel the tear tracks as we ate dinner. Even then, we were more quiet than usual.

I also held Prune and cried. I just felt like it. I think Prune was a little confused and most likely somewhat uncomfortable. I finally let him go.

I started “Howl's Moving Castle”. It’s very different from the film. I’m happy that I like both the book and film versions of the story, unlike “Harry Potter”. I love the “Harry Potter” series but the movies are pretty bad.

Dad preordered “Inverloch” 2! And he's going to drop off “V for Vendetta” tomorrow! Allison (from regular school) found me online and she's on my buddy list now. Definitely the same old Allison.

After Heather, Mom, and Mike came home we all went to Thai. I left my journal here, so I was kind of low in spirits. The atmosphere for us was really awkward, probably because of me, and the fact that it feels like a long time since all four of us went out together. We got some ice-cream afterward. I added nerds to mine. I was just curious. It tasted really bad and I really think I should have gotten a single scoop. We came home after listening to the Musica Latina band for a few minutes.

I read more of “Fanatic” and “Marley & Me”.

I got a call from Mrs. Ruskin, asking if Amy could come over so Rebecca could pick us both up here, and drive us (her mom doing the driving) to the bowling alley.

Rebecca got here. I stalled since I couldn't find my other “InuYasha” wristband as it was buried under my jeans on my desk and eventually invited her in when I realized she was suddenly standing outside, no car in sight. Apparently her Mom went to pick up Alicia, I think with Amy. Possibly not.

They came back with no Alicia, who had found other means of travel and we went bowling. Callie, Hannah, Alicia and Gwen met us there. Alicia had cut her hair.

I bought a soda and some cheese fries, although there was too much for me to finish. Gwen gave us all some Caramel Cremes and we eventually moved onto the next game.

I got a 61 and 2nd place on the first game. Alicia changed my named to Baloney Cheese on the scoreboard. Rebecca, Hannah and Gwen were on our side while Alicia, Callie, and Amy were on the other.

I did a double strike on the second game and got to 100, ending up with 119, beating both games between all of us.

The girls on the other lane and Gwen kept playing with the names. It was very annoying. I changed my name to Comic Crazy about halfway through, surprising all, and stopped Gwen from changing it near the end.

After we were finished, we changed back into our shoes, paid, and played arcade games until the moms came. I played the car game once and got 5th place.

Amy, Rebecca, Callie and I sat for the remainder of the time after the others left and talked about instrument playing/singing, Nadar being an ass-hole, and our time on the class discussion boards. It was really Amy, Rebecca and I. Callie didn't talk much. When Rebecca's Mom came, we were still talking about Nadar, and saying how stupid we thought he was. We discussed him a little more in the car, and then started talking about anime. It was Amy! Not me! She had taken a Jazz Band class at her institute camp thing, or some other class, which was full of anime lovers. Then she told me that she liked “DNAngel”. Then we tried explaining the love six-sided polygon to Callie, Rebecca's Mom, and Rebecca, although mainly to Callie. I got out my journal to make a diagram, which Amy redid. Then we started talking about concepts from the series, which were going completely over Callie's head, while Rebecca's Mom was smiling and asked Rebecca, "So this is the series you want to read?"

Somehow we got into “Harry Potter”. I think it was because of the conversation Rebecca and her mom were having. We were kind of having a back and front seat conversation thing. I think Callie was having issues trying to understand how the multiple personality thing in “DNAngel” was working. Rebecca's Mom told us that she had heard two of the main characters in “Harry Potter” were going to die this book. I already knew that and said attempting to assure everyone that Harry won't die because Rowling said she saw no point in the main character dying at the end or during a series.

I also enlightened them that she could have Voldemort killed, which only leave one more main character death slot. We decided that Peter Pettigrew would do fine. We were still arguing about it when Amy was dropped off and then I was dropped off, leaving Callie alone.

I was deeply engrossed in reading "Marley & Me". It's a pretty good book. I've laughed a bunch of times. I think I've fallen in love.

I feel like someone tore off my hair and glued it back on again.

Dad and I came back from seeing HP4. It surprisingly crowded. But then again, it is the Friday the day before New Years Eve, during winter break.

I loaded some songs onto my iPod today by copying my CDs. There are 200 on there now. I think I'm gonna go load some more after I finish this.

I finished "The Adventures of Robin Hood" this morning. It was good. I started "See No Evil" again. I think I might just try to find where I was, but I think it's a lost cause.

I woke up late, had food, say some tv, packed up, went to Wegman's, went to Don Pablo's, went to Dad's, loaded music, played games, ate dinner, went to movie, came back, and here I am, typing.
