My dad was able to find an extra ticket online so we could all go! AND IT WAS A-MAY-ZAH!

I turn 23 today! Man, do I feel old.

My parents and siblings are going to see Styx tonight. Why am I not going. Because I didn't realize I could enjoy rock concerts until it was too late to buy me a ticket. Yeah, I can be an idiot at times.

And now, a segment I like to call: "Births, deaths, and other important events that happened on my birthday!"

Augustus Ceasar (cool!)
Kublai Kahn (neat)
Empress Go-Sakuramachi of Japan (the most recent reigning empress of Japan)
Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary (yay?)
Su Buqing (Chinese mathematician and educator)
Mickey Rooney (it's funny because he's short and I'm tall)
Bruce Springsteen (Rock on!)
Maki Goto (Awesome!)

The only one that really interested me was Hiroshi Fujimoto(aka half of the manga writing duo Fujiko F. Fujio) in 1996.

Other interesting stuff:
We have the discovery of Neptune(neat), the founding of Nintendo, the publication of the original Phantom of the Opera novel, the founding of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the first gas chamber experiments at Auschwitz(not neat).

What are my birthday presents, you ask? Well, only the LORD OF THE RINGS BLU-RAY. ALL OF THEM! I am a happy nerd.

The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.

It's Hobbit Day. Did you really expect something else?

I was getting my braces adjusted when the first tower was hit. I got home to find the news on television and a scar in a NYC skyscraper(I lived in Florida and was homeschooled at the time). I also watched the second plane hit and both towers fall.

At first I thought it was all some horrible accident. Then I saw the second plane hit. I really didn't cry until I tried to explain the whole thing to my younger brother, who had turned 5 that day(by providence, we had the party the day before so his cousin could attend). I'm not really sure why I took it upon myself to do that other than I felt that I had to.

As a quick aside, I was living about an hour south of where President George W. Bush was at the time he was told of the attacks.

I first really understood the reality and seriousness of evil that day.
katsuno_hitomi: (Star Trek)
Ah, Star Trek. What sci-fi franchise has inspired more geekiness? None, I can tell you that.

I come from a long line of Star Trek fans. My grandfather liked it, he passed it on to Mom, who passed it on to me. I literally remember watching The Next Generation as a 4 year old with my mom. More recently, we went together to the J.J. Abrams reboot movie. I actually started clapping at the end credits. We also went to see Star Trek: Nemesis together. Both of us cried when (spoilers) Data sacrificed himself to save billions of lives(end spoiler).

Yeah, I have a lot of fond memories involving Star Trek. Like that universal remote shaped like a phaser I had for years. Never actually used the remote feature. I just wanted a phaser.

The world has changed a whole lot since 1966, thanks in part to Star Trek itself. So many modern amenites have their roots in Star Trek tech.

So happy 45th anniversary, Star Trek. May you keep boldly going where no one has gone before!

I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

Yeah, right.

The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. I will spread the geekiness from one generation to another!

RP news

I told myself I would never join another dedicated rp game on LJ. And then I saw the game that the ever awesome [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin will be modding/playing on the flist a week ago. Here's a link to all the info on it. http://itsjustthemads.livejournal.com/profile

I am seriously considering applying for multiple characters in this game. That has never happened before with me. That's just how psyched I am for this game.

In real life news, the rents are out for a little getaway until Sunday. Younger bro will be gone til Saturday on a backpacking trip. It's going to be a great weekend!

Just as an FYI, I'll be playing Galadriel in this game. First choice for a second character would be China from Axis Powers Hetalia. What can I say, I like millenia-old characters who look to be in their 20's.

Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender, because she is so psychotic, and her fall from grace is so realistic.

Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. If you need to ask why, you have been living under a rock.

Diva from Blood+. This gal makes me want to swear at her like a sailor for all the bad stuff she's done. Add to that her suductive nature, and you've got a great villianess.

Once upon a time, I had a beginners understanding of French. Now all I can remember is the above phrase.

I actually plan on majoring in Japanese once I get to BYU(don't know when, but I will make it happen!). Other languages I want to learn are Mandarin Chinese, Quenya, and Sindarin. Notice that half of these languages are Tolkien constructs. That's how much of a nerd I am.

Only two episodes in, and I'm already a brony. Heck, I'm putting this show into my epic Kingdom Hearts fanfic. That's how obsessed I've become in the last 24 hours.

Now, to find a proper MLP:FiM icon.

I believe the AWESOMENESS speaks for itself.

You people sicken me. I wish I could put into words just how despicable you have become in my eyes(you were despicable to begin with, Mr. President, but that's another story). I can't think of a single one of you who isn't a liar. You promise one thing and do the total opposite. You think that you are above the law just because you bring it into existenece. You think you can do whatever you want with the taxpayer money you recieve without any consequences. Above all, you think that you can control us, the citizens of the United States of America.

Ladies and gentleman of Congress, Mr. President, I've got news for ya. You are wrong. Dead wrong. Do you honestly think that if this country's economy fails that we citizens will just sit around and do nothing? I don't think so. In fact, I daresay that should that happen, your positions of power will be stripped away from you faster than you can blink.  And then what will you do?

I implore you, do not let the country fall. If you do, I shall be among those who testify against you at Judgement Day before God himself. And I will not be alone. 300 million others will be right there with me.

I pray that you will look inside yourselves, that you will see just how far you have fallen, and that you will exert all your efforts to get back in good standing with God and the nation.

(Sorry about the politics in this entry, flist. Usually I avoid the subject, but I had to get this off my chest.)

I'll bet you never thought me to be much of a classic American rock fan. Well, I'm not, but yesterday the whole family was going to see Kansas and I decided to come along. We had a great time, even if it did rain before the concert proper. Actually delayed it for a full hour. I didn't get too wet, though I was wondering why everytime we try to make happy family memories, rain is involved.

Kansas did pretty well for a bunch of guys who've been doing this sort of thing since the early 70's. I might have to check out some of their songs tomorrow, especially "Carry On My Wayward Son." It's pretty cool when a band can still draw crowds after 38 years.

In no particular order, list ten things that make you happy and then tag six people to take this.

These are a few of my favorite things... )

Well, there's praying with a sincere heart, going to church, studying the scriptures, and listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

- Write a list of characters and number them.
- Input the number of characters into
this random number generator as the maximum and generate two numbers.
-  Ramble about how the corresponding pairing/partnership would (or,  indeed, wouldn't) work. Perhaps write a snippet/one-sentence fic for it  if you're feeling brave.
- Repeat to your heart's content.

Much weirdness ensues. )

The dimples I get when I smile and the color of my eyes. Actually, the only physical thing I would change about me is my current weight. Personality wise, however...
