P.S. So...at this rate I'm never going to be able to catch up people with what's been going on since my last real post. But you all know that I'm constantly lurking on this site, commenting on your posts. And some of you see my ridiculous updates on Twitter, so you know that I'm very much alive. Maybe I'll finally make that post on Thanksgiving break (probably not) or Christmas break (more likely). Till then, stay awesome and be safe. ♥
Psych: Yayz!

Good News (for me)!

1. I just got my mom to let me preorder Psych Season 1 on DVD. It is gonna be KICK ASS. The episodes are in widescreen, so no extra little bits will be cut off on the sides or anything. And obviously, there will be no watermarks and it'll be crystal clear DVD quality. :) If I'm up to it, I might even screencap each episode and post the caps for people to use. By the way, Amazon.com dropped their preorder price to $39.49 today (because it was still around $45 yesterday when I checked), so the price is definately a good deal because it's around $20 cheaper than the MSRP (which says that it will normally sell for $59.99 when it's officially released in stores on June 26), AND you can get free shipping through Amazon.com.

2. Earlier this week, I found out from archemo that Dead Like Me is going to get a direct-to-DVD movie. I'm hoping that they'll be able to get the original cast members (Ellen Muth, Mandy Patinkin, Callum Blue, and Jasmine Guy). Otherwise I'll be disappointed. I don't know what Callum Blue and Jasmine Guy are up to, but it seems like Ellen Muth's last acting job was when DLM was still filming episodes, which was like 4 years ago. :O And Mandy Patinkin is on Criminal Minds, so who knows if he'll be too busy to take a break from that or not. If all of the original actors can come back, I hope this movie will either a)wrap up the series OR b)allow for maybe another movie release or two.

3. I'm getting Taco Bell for dinner. w00t! :D

4. Next week is my last week of school! I'm so looking forward to my summer vaction finally starting.

So yeah...it's been a good week for me in fandom and in real life.

See ya! ;)

Random Bits and Pieces

I'm bored right now, but in a pretty good mood today.

But anyways, for fandom stuffs, I'm really starting to grow more and more attached to Dead Like Me after watching more and more episodes from my DVDs. Apparently there were only 7 episodes that I hadn't seen yet on SciFi, but I was expecting there'd be more, so I was surprised. I'm starting to watch the entire series over from the beginning till the end because: a)I like Betty in the earlier episodes. :) b)I want to look for hints of George/Mason since I'm starting to like it, kinda like how Roxy/Rube grew on me from scenes in certain episodes. and c)why not rewatch a kick ass show over and over again? ;)

And for Ryuusei no Rockman (which I posted about once or twice here I think), somebody is fansubbing episodes, so now I can finally see if I'll enjoy the series more now that I'll be able to understand more than bits and pieces of what the hell everyone is saying. XD The show still isn't nearly as good as Rockman.EXE was (the art in this is so...flat. They really need to consider more shading, and make more interesting stuff happen.), but I'm willing to put up with it because sometimes I'll hate a new episode, but the one next week I'll like a whole lot.

See ya! ;)

My Holiday Break

Christmas was flipping schweet. I got DVD box sets for How I Met Your Mother and Dead Like Me. When I made my list, I thought about asking for My Name is Earl too, but I figured it would be a better gift to get for my dad, so my mom and I did. And now I'm addicted to that show. It's so hilarious, and I adore Randy's simple mindedness and innocence...and when he goes off on long rants like these:

Anyhoo, I also got lots of manga to read, and my parents got me a Nintedo DS Lite! :D Even though it's not the Nintendo Wii that I wanted, it's still pretty cool, and definately an improvement over the original DS.

A few days after Christmas, my family and I took the usual trip into NYC, and one of my friends got to come along too. :) At the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, they had plushies from Animal Crossing, so I spazzed and bought 3 of those: K.K. Slider, Copper, and the girl (although now I regret not buying more because they probably won't be there the next time I get to take a trip there. T_T). I also bought a plushie of Toad from the Mario series, 3 Mario figures (Mario, Luigi, and Toad. If they had any Yoshis left, I would've gotten him too, but they were sold out.), and a little Bowser go-kart from the Mario Kart games. I'll be taking pictures of my stuff eventually, so I'll post them here.

And for other things...I finally went out and bought myself a copy of Chibi-Robo! for the GameCube the other day since the price is now much cheaper. It's a cute little game, and I'm hooked! I hope the next game for it that's supposed to come out on the DS will be just as fun. :)

See ya! ;)

TGIF

I have so many things to be thankful for this Friday. Like the fact that my classes in school were shortened thanks to a pep rally, I finally got to see an episode of Dead Like Me and realize why my friend loves it lots, and Avatar: Secret of the Fire Nation is airing tonight! :D And my dad is picking me up a BK kids meal for dinner, so this will hopefully be another new toy to add to my small collection.

The first two times, I got the 'Air Scooter Aang' (because I got a meal two days in a row, so they still had the same toy the next day. Then last week I got the 'Rip 'N Whirl Sokka' (one of those 'sticker toys' as I like to call them). And I'm hoping for a different toy this week, which I'm assuming there will be because typically at fast food places, I think they change the toy every few days or every week or something. Considering that SotFN is being shown tonight, maybe BK actually looked into this and I'll end up getting a Zuko or Azula toy (since they ARE from the Fire Nation afterall :P).

So yeah, good weekend so far. I might get to go to a friend's party tomorrow, but I'm not sure yet. Considering I got the invite late (the RSVP was Sept. 10th! XD), I'll have to check because my parents don't always go for last minute things. If I do get to go though, it'll be a sleepover, so that'll be mucho fun. Too bad that because of the lateness, I didn't even have time to look for a gift. Of course, I just give money to people all the time instead, but still. What if I did have some awesome gift idea in mind for once? Then I wouldn't have been able to get/make it. But since that's not the case, there probably isn't any point in me ranting about it, is there? :P

See ya! ;)
