What Else Can We Talk About Besides Mad Libs and Menstrual Blood?

...I already promised a friend that, when I first released an autobiography of my infinately interesting life, that would be the title. Because it's a quote from an actual conversation I've had, and it's so awesome, I couldn't not.

So... I'm kind of in the process of discovering Arithmancy. It's not... I mean, I don't really believe that the numbers dictate who you are, but... it is an interesting and fun way of thinking about parts of your existing personality that you hadn't really considered before. And then seeing where the numbers do match up. For instance, using my real name, I'm a 3. The name Arthoniel is also a 3. New York is a 3. One of the people I kind of have a crush on right now is a 3. Both of my parents are 2s. (If you couldn't already tell, you're more compatible with someone who shares your character number.) And it's kinda fun, just doing that, and seeing what does and doesn't match up~ I wanna try working on personality profiles and things next, just to see how accurate it can be. If you want me to do one for you too, just let me know, and give me the name you want me to work with- we can do it in a PM, should you prefer~

Lastly... I've noticed that a lot of my friends, particularly here on LJ, have been going through some tough times, recently. And I'm sorry... and if there's anything I can do to make you guys feel any better, just let me know, mmkay?

Also, if you're into voice actors like I am... check it out. It's kind of beautiful.  XD
And if you're not, but you ARE into musicals/Disney/things that are awesome... this is more the thing for you~

Oh, mistakes and misunderstandings. You so funny. Basically, if you saw my last (now heavily friends-locked) entry... it's all resolved and okay now. Just so you know~

In other news... two things that I saw recently that were awesome.

The Nutcracker. I love living in New York, since that fact allows me to do things every so often like go to Lincoln Center and see the New York Ballet's The Nutcracker and... sldfjdljsdflkdjs it was so beautiful and the music is so iconic and sldjfsdlfjsd. It was wonderful. Especially how there are children in it. I am a bumbling, fumbling, idiot child who can't walk across a flat surface properly... and then the adults... well, there is a reason that the ballet is so famous. It was simply extraordinary. Although, if you look up a synopsis of the story of The Nutcracker... it is the trippiest story ever. I'm just sayin'.

Tangled. SLDKFJSLDKFJSDL THIS IS WHY I LOVE DISNEY. I wanna go see it again. And again. And again. It was so good. It was everything I love about Disney- the only difference is that it was computer animated, and not hand drawn. But. sldfkjsdlkjfs SO GOOD. If you haven't seen it yet, you should.

I started re-reading the Harry Potter series yesterday. It has become my winter break project to re-read all of Harry Potter, read Othello, finish re-playing TWEWY, and re-play Ace Attorney: Investigations. So I started yesterday. I'm already halfway through Chamber of Secrets. I've so got this.

...Huh. I've been rambling on for a bit, haven't I? Aight. I'll shut up now.  :D

ETA: Lawl, I lied. I'm bored. So have a meme!


Under a cut, to save your flists~ )


arthoniel: (Baccano!- Deep thoughts by Issac and Mir)

Random musings since my brain is not in a place where I can write out full paragraphs and stuff.

-I love my high school. I love going back to visit. Especially since so many of my friends there are younger than me, and thus, still there. But I'm glad it's over, and that I'm in college now.
-My Disney Pandora channel is giving me less and less actual Disney. First it was all the songs from Disney movies that I liked... and then it became covers of those songs by other people, which wasn't ideal, but wasn't bad... and then it was Glee which I couldn't dislike, but wasn't quite what I was going for... but now, getting an actual Disney song is significantly rarer. And that's not cool. I'm considering deleting the channel and just starting over with it again. Because... I have not had a Disney song for the past, like, seven songs. (I'm listening to it now, if that wasn't already obvious.)
-Someone truly awesome made marshmallows, and gave me a bit of them. They were amazing and Earl Grey flavored and I loved them. The only thing about them that makes me at all sad is that they are gone now, and I no longer have any. But they were still really super cool.  :D
-I recently got an idea for a new stand-up sketch that I think could be really good if I can just refine it some. And by some, I mean a lot. But it's a really good idea, and I really wanna work on it.
-I absolutely adore my HTP friends. Some of us went out to see Julie Taymor's film adaptation of The Tempest, and it was very much made of happy. It's the trippiest Shakespeare that I've ever seen. But oh my god, so good. And then I saw it with some of my favorite people ever, and it just was very much happy tiemz, and I love all of you. (Yay being vague with names and identities on the internet!)  <3
-In fact, in general, I have been getting a lot of love recently. An almost disproportionate amount of love, but... I'm feeling very happy in general with life right about now. I love my friends, especially now that I have friends who respect me and show me their affection, I love the holiday season which helps bring all of this out in all of us, and I love all of you. All of you. You all help make me this kind of happy, and it's just wonderful and... I don't really have words for it in my slightly brain-dead state, but... I'm very happy, and it's you guys who bring me to this level of awesome.  :)
-Whoa. I guess I can do paragraphs a little more than I thought I could.
-Walking will be happening a lot tomorrow as I walk from my house all the way down to the fashion district and back to get holiday presents... and I don't want to pay train fare. But it's good for me! It's good exercise! ...Besides, it also means that if I don't spend all of the money I've allotted for holiday presents, that is ample excuse for me to let myself go to Jamba Juice with the rest of my money and get their limited edition Berried 'n Chocolate flavor smoothie, which is just so good and I love it.
-Equals Three is awesome. It's a web show on YouTube, and... yeah, just YouTube search Equals Three and watch it. It's really funny. And should you care, I can post links to my favorite episodes from it. I mean, I have literally cried from laughing because of it. ...Also, the guy who does it lives in New York, just down the block from a friend of mine, so you just know that it's awesome.
-I've finally seen all of Firefly. slkdfjdslkjfsd IT'S SO GOOD. I really wanna get the DVDs now too... but yes. It's just such a good series. And Nathan Fillion is a beautiful, A+ human being.

...I've gotten to the point where I'm just rambling about the first thing that comes to mind. Also, Go The Distance just came up on my Pandora channel, so I'll stop now.

But yes. TL;DR... I love you all, you guys. You make me very happy. All of you.  <3

So you know that feeling when you have something that you really want to talk about... but you just can't? Yeah. That feeling. I have it now. I mean, I thought sharing was caring! But, as it turns out, if I were to share, it would be the exact opposite of caring. ...E-Except, I really wanna talk about it. GAH SUCH A CONDUNDRUM. Well, not really, because I know I'm not going to share. But it knaws at me from the inside.

Your local, neighborhood Arthoniel is growing up and doing things and being mature. Ain't that somethin'? Never thought it'd start to actually happen to me. But there you go.

In other news, lskdjfdlskjfl FIREFLY. I'm one episode away from having seen the entire series. It's so good. And Fox is a collective bitch. I'm just sayin'.

...I mean, seriously, how does a nerd friend group get drama?? Like, just... how does that happen?? And the thing is... I can't really say I mind. It's been so long since I've had any real drama in my life... so long as no one is getting hurt, it's not so bad, right?

Some of my friends and I had a movie night. Two nights in a row. For the past two nights... the two before this one, I mean. It was nice. We watched Disney movies! Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Mulan... and then we also watched Happy Feet and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Good times were had by all. And DISNEY.

I absolutely love my piano keyboard. I still don't know what to name her. But I love her.

I go home for winter break on Tuesday, by the way. And for the first time... I'm not 100% certain that I quite want to go. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED to go home to New York so I can be in my city again, and for an extended length of time and everything. I miss my city SO, SO much, and I can't wait to be back. I can wait to go home and be with my family again. Besides which... I'm gonna miss my friends here. A lot. A lot. I keep telling them to visit the City over the break and everything, but... gah. I'm gonna miss Brandeis over the break.

Anyway, I gotta shut up and go and respond to my Para tags. It's been a day now and I haven't done it, and... while I have excellent reasons for not having been there... I still need to go do that. So I will. Fun times abound!  :D

^ My description of a Turduckin. I think it's rather accurate.

My Disney Pandora channel is giving me straight up children's music now. It's weird. And kind of annoying. I DUN WANNA LISTEN TO STUFF FOR KIDS, I WANNA LISTEN TO DISNEY. (...Listen to "A Whole New World" and then tell me with a straight face that that's written for children.  >D)

So today (well, technically yesterday by this point) was Black Friday. And it was amazing. I always love this time of year, and Black Friday just signifies the beginning of it. Also, I got things. Useful things. And pretty things. And sexy things. I like getting things. Why yes, I AM a materialistic American, it's nice to meet you.

Tomorrow I get to just chill in the City. New York City. And that makes me happier than almost anything else could.  :D

My holiday wishlist is up over here. Have you posted yours yet? Link me to it, if I haven't already seen it! I love spreading holiday cheer~

Today (after I got over not going to homecoming... that comes up later) involved seeing my best friend for the first time in over a month and a half? Possibly even more? But yes. It involved Wesley, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, and Beauty and the Beast. Today has mostly been a good day.

I didn't get to go to my high school homecoming though. It's kind of pissing me off. I set my alarm to get me up well in advance of when I had to be there so I could get up, take a shower, and get there in time to see my friends. It was supposed to be 10:00 AM. But then (I assume that this is what happened as I wasn't entirely concious at the time) my alarm went off, I was about to get up to go to homecoming, and then the past three consecutive nights of me getting less than four hours of sleep reached over, turned off the alarm, and said "Oh, no you won't." And I woke up at 2:00 PM. It just wasn't happening- it's an hour long trip to the school, and it ends at 2:45. So I didn't get to go to my homecoming. Which kind of really sucked.

So I took a nice long shower in a shower that wasn't entirely disgusting, shaved, found my cloak and put it on and mentally prepared to pack it so I could take it back with me to college. I then called Wesley, and she came over and we got to hang out, which made it better. It didn't replace the experience, but it was still really awesome, and it made me feel better.

And then, later on, after dinner with my family, my mother, brother and I went out to the Ben and Jerry's scoop shop on 104th and Broadway, got ice cream... and then came home and watched Beauty and the Beast which we had recorded on the DVR. Andandand... sldfjsdlkjfsd DISNEY. You all know my deep love for classic Disney movies. This is one of them. slkfjdlkjsd IT'S SO GOOD I LOVE IT. I'm still squeeing.

Also, hhnnnnggggghhhh Belle's dress in the dance scene I want it. If I had the skills, I would make it, but I don't... maybe one day I will though, because it's so gorgeous.

Aight. I'll go take my squeeage somewhere else.

Oh, and for those of you who are from the U.S. on my flist, happy Thanksgiving! (It's past midnight, that's fair game.) And if you're not from the U.S., I hope you just have a generally awesome day. Because we all deserve generally awesome days. Also, because it means that the holiday season is coming up, and no matter what religion you are, those are always amazing.  :D

WAITWAITWAIT, one more thing. You know what's awesome? You know what's really, seriously awesome? Chanukka comes early this year, and my parents told me what they're giving me for the holiday, because they say they need my help picking it out... THEY'RE GETTING ME A KEYBOARD!! Not a computer keyboard, a piano keyboard. This makes me so happy inside like I can't even begin to describe- I've wanted one for the longest time so I could play at college (the practice rooms in the music building are always full) and now I'm getting one, and I'm so happy about it, it just... makes my life pretty much complete.  XD

Wow. You know what? Do you guys have any requests? It's essentially the beginning of the holiday season anyway, and I love doing things for people, especially around this time of year! Be it a fic request or... whatever! Within reason, obviously... but if it's something I can do, ask me for it? I really want to do something for someone to share my happiness and make someone else's day, and I love you all, so... yeah. That's a thing. You should all totally take advantage of it~

I love this feeling.

Hercules just never gets old. I know it's horribly, horribly inacurate and all... but slkfjdlskfjsdk IT'S SUCH A GOOD MOVIE I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

And this is kind of inspiring me to create a Disney music Pandora channel.

I love Pandora by the way, have I mentioned? It's pretty much the most amazing thing ever.

Finally... in about an hour and fifteen minutes, I'm headed down to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear!! I'm so ridiculously excited for this like I can't even begin to explain. After all, it could be this American generation's Woodstock~

lskdjfldskjflskd IT'S SO AWESOME. I promise I'll have pictures from it too, if you want to see them~
