|Well uh... hi?
I think everyone has figured out by now, that I just don't hang around Live Journal any more.
I'm not trying to put anyone down or anything, but personally I just don't feel like I've moved on from needing this journal.
I mean I've thought of stuff I could use it for, and I still may turn it into a Dream Journal or something.
I've thought of putting up anime or videogame reviews, but really if I was going to do that, I think I should go get an account with the 1up forums/blogs. It'd fit over there a bit more.
There is something however that's just big enough for me to warrent mentioning on here.
In about three days. This Thursday to be exact, I will be getting on a plane and taking a FOURTEEN hour long flight to TOKYO, JAPAN.
It's taken a long time to save up all the money, and get everything ready. But it's all said and done. Tickets have been purchased, passport has been obtained. Now all that's left is to go.
On wensday I'll be packing up. It just so happens that on wensday night at certain theaters, with one being near me, They will be showing the Bleach Movie (Memories of Nobody) on the big screen in english, and I'm going to it.
I'll be staying the night with the friend who is going with me, and the next morning we'll be taken by limo (thanks to a friend of my friend) to the airport, in which we'll board our flight.
I'll only be there for a week. The following wensday I'll be comming home, but even that short a time is something I never thought I'd have.
I have a few friends who keep joking that I won't come back, but seriously I don't see that happening. :P
Unless my life goes all anime and I end up engaged to some princess like women or something like that, I'm not about to get stuck in a country where I don't know the lanuage, and have no place to go. >_>
So far the only places we REALLY know we are going is Tokyo Tower (about a block from where we'll be staying), and Akihabara (The final place we'll visit because it's where most of our shopping will be done, and I don't want to spend too much money at the start of the week, to insure we have food funds and the like)
Besides Shinbuya, and possibly a bath house, the rest is all 'ideas'
We have places marked down that we want to go to. Just figuring out where we'll actually go will come when we are there. All depends on the time and stuff.
Anyway we'll be taking lots of pictures and my friend is bringing a camcorder, so I'll have lots of stuff to share, and my trip will most likely be blogged about here.
Heck if I'm able to get internet access while over there, I may just update every night. But don't get your hopes up for that.
Anyway, that's all I wanted to say. I figured it was news so big, that I should just go ahead and tell everyone about it.

Today I was in a car acident.
Before everyone freaks, I'm ok, and so was everyone involved. The only thing to take damage were the cars.
Jimmy my roomate was driving us home when guy ran a red light (though he claims it was US who ran it. :/) and slammed into our side.
I was just talking to everyone in the car (which was Jimmy, my brother and I) and then boom. Everything is shaking and it's like we're going down a rocky hill. My soda cup exploded spilling it's contents all over me. :/
Next thing I know the air bags are deployed and smoke is everywhere. Jimmy yelled that we had to get out and I forced my door open and climbed out carrying my jacket. Didn't realize my sunglasses were still in the car till AFTER I was outside.
I just kinda stood there as the cops came and everything. We ended up taking out a walk signal.
The driver of the other car was fine, and I already said we were ok. I'm a bit bruied in a couple of spots and the wind was knocked out of me due to the air bag, but nothing else.
This is why you wear seatbelts people. (Hell yes we were wearing them)
Had my friend Erion come pick my brother and I up. Jimmy got picked up by his Grandparents.
It was a spooky expierence, and I'm just glad to be home now.
I hope we can get a rental car or something. Unfortantly I still need to get to work. :/

|Another day, Another Headache
I'm to drained to think of a witty way to start this.
Yesterday my brother was arrested for having no tag on his car, and for driving with a suspended license.
The license thing is a long story. He was going to get it taken away for a reason I forget at the moment and was offered a path. If he was to do all this stuff, the license would NOT be suspeded.
DMV suspended it anyway. Since then he's been trying to do what needs to be done to get it back.
Either that or he figured he'd be fine and not get caught. Which obviously didn't happen.
All we had to do was go down and pay his bond to get him out. We just needed someone to sign the bond. This was suppose to be my old roomate Felipe. Felipe even promised to sign the bond in case this scenerio ever happened.
Well he didn't want to. Constantly making excuses. Saying my brother had skipped court dates and since he was afraid my brother would skip the court date again, he'd get fined for taking responsibility.
I can't sign the thing because I'm only a casher and only been working for a year and a half. You have to have worked for about two years and have a respectible position.
Finally get another call from Felipe who says he was about to go do it when they said he had to be over 25 to do it. I found this suspicous but let it slide at that moment. Being I couldn't disprove it, even though it sounded fishy.
I told him we had another person (The General Manager of the store my brother works at) who would do it. Since both he and the GM worked with the smae company (Popeyes) If he could go cover her shift for a bit while we got her to go down to sign the paper.
His response was that he didn't like the GM or the store and didn't want to work there.
I was like, "Uh, this is an emergancy Felipe. Just do this as a friend to me, You're not going to be there that long. It's either this or you sign the paper. There isn't any other option."
Well my brothers 'wife' (long story I'm not getting into) took the phone and tried to convince him as I had to begin consolting with someone else on my cell phone. (We had been talking on Cassia's)
Felipe's 'stand' was to get one of the other managers to do it, and hung up with Cassia.
I called the bond. No such 25 age thing exists. Either he called a different one, or he's lying to me. I'm betting on lying via I never heard from him again all day.
Fuck him. Both me and my youngest brother are going to show him how we 'feel' about his attitude when we see him again.
Finally get someone who can sign, turning out that 'Out of state' people can do it, and we happen to have someone out of state.
Then turns out my brother skipped some court days he was suppose to go to, meaning he's in more trouble then we thought. After long hours of calls it turned out we were at a dead end. We had to leave him in there overnight.
Today I get to see when his court date is for the trial he skipped and try to make it there so we can see what needs to be done.
It's only the begining of the week, and I'm at my wits end.

|Life update because I'm bored and not tired yet.
Remember my roomate marrying?
Yeah I moved out, am living with my brothers. It's not a 'horrible' get up. They won't even charge me rent. Instead I'm in charge of buying all food.
Once I can find a FRIGGEN third roomate, I'll manage to get my own place. Not being able to walk to my work is annoying.
Finally caught up with all the Harry Potter books. CAN'T WAIT to attempt to pick up the final one tomorrow.
My game collection is about 15 titles off from reaching 400. ^_^
And something seems to be really getting to me. I'm shaking sometimes at work.
Well that's about it. Another pointless post right? I really should turn this into a dream LJ or game blog or something. Current Mood: Just here

|I had to do it
Well it was a bit costly. Forty bucks, but that was actuall ten off the regular price. Also I'm sure it's far less then I'd pay online.
But I finally, FINALLY own a copy of the best RPG I've played in my life.
Up atop my bookshelf. Btween my Grandia game and my Tales of Phantasia soundtrack CD.
Sits an SNES copy of:

How is everyone doing? I rarly post here anymore, but I do look through all of your posts from time to time. I miss speaking with some of you. Like Clinton.
Any of you ever wonder what I'm up to?
Well if you do, it's kinda the same. I'm talking to my dad again though. Via email. Been seeing more of my brothers latly thanks to them either working where I work more often, or them working right next door.
My anime club is having a bit of a lasp as a few members don't tend to show up all that often right now, but things like this happen.
I've got a couple of friends headed off to Japan next year. Lucky SOBs.
I've been TRYING to save up some cash for a 360, but have failed. I want a Wii too, but untill I get an ACTUAL release date for either Metriod Prime 3: Corruption, or Super Smash Brothers: Brawl, and they become easier to FIND, I'll pass.
Recently my computer overheated and caused the power supply to blow out my mother board which is why my LAST attempt to save up for a 360 failed.
I have however gotten lots of new games, my collection coming VERY close to 400.
Most of it is because of a sale at a local GameStop of mine. The only one to still sell old PS1 games.
They had all PS1 games going for 75% off the price, AND I got the extra 10-20% off thanks to my discount card.
The end result?
I picked up a replacement copy of Grandia (* Details at end of post), Digimon Rumble Arena, Castlevania: Chronicles, Irritating Stick, Vandal Hearts 2, And Area 51.
Along with Devil Dice, Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth, Breath of Fire IV, DeathTrap Dungeon, and two copies of Sled Storm. All for about 22 bucks.
(DeathTrap Dungeon I wanted to check out only to find it really did suck, so I gave it to my brothers. (I let them know it sucked. But I think they can find something to do with it. (Trade or so)) As for sled storm. The first copy I broke trying to peel stupid Blockbuster stickers from it, so that's why I got another copy)
I've gotten many other games, but the only other one I want to mention is that I've finally gotten myself a THIRD PSP game.
Tales of Enternia import (europe) has joined my PSP game collection. My local store 'Frys' got another copy in selling for 34.99! You can't imagine how fast I grabed that copy.
I'm very surpised the english voices are in this game. I was very much expecting to only get english text with Japanese voices.
I'm one of the people however who WANTED the english voices, so I'm very pleased.
And that's all for now. Have fun everyone!

Did you know that Resident Evil has an Energy Drink out called the T-Virus Anidote?
Picked mine up at a spencers. It tastes pretty bland, but it's not horrible. I can tollerate it at least.
Defently not going to buy another though. But at least now I can put the can on display.
If you do buy one to try, watch out for that aftertaste.

Man talk about a Manga overload.
Bought myself Five volumes of manga.
Metamo Kiss, Kedamono Damono, Magical X Miricle, Witch Class, and the latest volume of Antique Gift shop.
Then my friend is lending me eight volumes of manga.
Pastel 4 and 5, Canidate for Goddess 1-3, Read or Dream 3, Inubaka, and Moon Phase 6.
Guess I'd better get reading!
In other news: I FINALLY HAVE A COPY OF THE TENCHI MOVIE 2 SOUNDTRACK!
It's been my favorite movie of all time for years now, and I finally found a copy of it at a local anime convention (Momo con) for only FIVE BUCKS! ^_^
In sad news. Frys had Tales of Enternia for the PSP going for only 35 bucks. They said they had one copy left, but either it was hidden, or it was a computer error. >_< Drat. Knew I should have grabed it for 50.
It's the start of the new year and no new systems yet. This next check is a free check though and I'll be putting the money aside for a 360. With Devil May Cry 4 just annouched being multiplatform, I don't need to worry about a PS3 for another year.
And even then it's only for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XIII.
Now I just need to get some money together for a Wii so I can get Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

|Um then there was uh... Uh...
Ok Thursday Nights dream sucked, something about a boy harming puppies and myself trying to get him to realize what he was doing was cruel, and sadly failing at doing so.
Then last nights dream...
Something about AMVs, and having to go through an amusment park like ride as they played. Piccilo, Gohan, Edward Elric looking for Al, a Japanese Ghost women, videogames.
You know. Try as I might I could never write THAT one down.

|Ok so I was wrong... kinda
Well I didn't have a dream that felt like the last three, but I did have another one.
Ever have a dream, and during it you realize you had this dream before? I had a night like that.
I (apperently) had a dream one night where I was in this apartment complex and this female ninja (Why do I always have girls in my dreams I don't know?) burst in through the front door. It was a very cluttered apartment. Kinda like when I lived with this guy named Brian. He was really cool as he had pinball machines IN HIS LIVING ROOM, and an actual acrade set up in one room. I'm talking cabnits. I think I was in a place like that. His apartment was always very cluttered though.
Anyway, I was on the computer at the time and was surpised at why she was there. I knew he though somehow. She told me an army was on it's way to capture me, and I had to leave.
Well maybe I had the dream earlier that night, and this section repeated, but this time I saw through the female ninja's eyes as she infiltrated my apartment complex to come get me. (Instresting note, the enterance way to the complex was gated, but the gate looked the top of a GameBoy Advance. Comlete with L and R buttons sticking out of the walls. It's hard to imagine, but I can't describe it any better then that.)
She fought this blond guy who was also trained in the ninja way. I remember him throwing a kunai at her, which she deflected with another thrown kunai. I think they clashed with kunais a bit before she gave him the slip. I think he let her get away. He acted kinda cocky, and I think he was attracted to her. He was kinda a Spike Spegail kinda guy.
Anyway, after that she got to my apartment door and I saw these guys in white/tanish armor checking out an apartment down the hallway. For some odd reason I'm sure they were being lead by Azula of Avatar fame.
The ninja then busted through my door and as I was still seeing through her eyes like I was her, I saw her run up to me and tell me about the attack, to which we escaped out the back.
Then it skipped.
I'm not sure what was going on here, as I saw everything through 3rd person, but I 'think' I was seeing myself or a part of myself as some guy. This guy was turned into a female Air Nomad from the Avatar show. I remember her in the closet of an old apartment I lived in. It was my rooms closet as it had my trunk in it and everything like I did back then. She was going through some specail 'programing training' like watching a video to be more feminine.
The person playing me the video (It was a guy but I never actually saw him) told the new she, that she was the latest incarnation of the Avatar, and because of that they had to be trained to repersent the body they had. Something about how if the girl didn't know how to act like a 'girl' they wouldn't be able to look good to the people or something like that.
Last thing I recal is being myself again and I'm on something like a suitcase with wheels. There was some strange pump attached to it, that if I pumped, the thing moved. I was traveling down a sidewalk when I woke up.
Four times asleep, four dreams. A bit odd I think. Perhaps the cycle will end tonight? I don't really want it to, but that's usually what happens.

|What's wrong with me?
Man, have I ever been sleepy recently.
Last night I dreamnt I was at this university type school. I knew it was a college, but it wasn't any such college.
It was a NINJA ACADEMY college. My teacher in fact was Iruka-senshi from Naruto. (Naruto was around somewhere too, but I only saw him in passing. Don't recall seeing any of the others)
All my friends were there, somewhere. Myself and my friends Derek, and Erion along with a couple of girls I don't know. (being they were ANIME girls) were in one group.
I remember us marching in a sqaure path to Iruka's orders. He was talking to us like an MTI would. (Military Training Instructer - Just in case you didn't know)
We marched for a while (guess to build our strength up for later teachings) After the 'Training time' was over, Iruka began to act like he would on the show. He took Derek, Erion, and myself for a ride in his car, yes he had a car, to take us to our new dorm rooms.
I don't know how the two girls got there, but they were there already in the room. Derek and I were getting our stuff read along with Erion when I woke up.
Final note: The room was like a small apartment, and yes it looked like we were sharing it with the two girls. Guess each 'Ninja group' were designed to stay together during training.
My sleepyness hasn't let up from there though. I just took a rather long unexpected nap. In which I had another even stranger dream.
I was at some camp. There was this beautifull stone arche way out side this cabin area. Or inside this large cabin place. It's a bit vauge.
This guy carved something out of the stone archway. Unfortantly I can't remember what it was, but it was impressive. (I do keep getting the word 'heart' when I think about it though) He put red price tags on it for some odd reason. He was putting them on a lot of things.
I walked under the archeway kept going a bit, passing a tree on my right. On this tree he put a price tag for 1.09. Oddly I think all the stuff with price tags were actually for sale, and I looked straight ahead and said:
"Garath weeps at the injustice of a doller nine tree"
The guy came out at that point. (I get the feeling it was either kougetsu, or idea. Don't be mad either of you, but that's the feeling I get. ^^; )
He mentioned something about the tree, and went on to tell me about the carving and told me a little poem about it.
I can't recall it excatly, but it was something about how the Sky was beautiful next to the water when the boy almost hit his head against his brothers, causing him to almost kiss his brother while he tried to throw his brother into the lake.
I woke soon after that.
I'd say I'm afraid as to what I'm going to dream next, but now that I've spoken of these dreams and said that, I'm sure I won't have anything interesting to dream tonight.
