Air raid

July 28, 2008 at 08:29 (Uncategorized)

I was woken at 5h30 this morning by an air raid siren.  I lay for a while listen for anything else like planes, people screaming but there was nothing.  Just the siren going on and on, occasionally it would wane a bit but it would start up again.  I heard it yesterday morning at about 10h30 while I was sewing but dismissed it.  Now I’m a little curious…

But speaking of being woken up by sounds other than the alarm clock – the other night I was woken by fighting in Balin’s Tomb with a cave troll dying, it was followed by a Balrog growling, wizard shouting, Elves singing and Galadriel going off her head.  It was all very clear so my neighbour’s sound system is very good.

I signed up for a free trail at the gym but I had to give ten names and numbers; I gave six but I should have gone with my first instinct and left it but I was already so far along – I’ve been turning it around in my mind the whole day and I regret giving the names.

More Uchiha fighting in Naruto and Bleach is setting up a huge fight…

I must also change my opinion on pineapple upsidedown cake – I don’t like warm pineapple upsidedown cake; once it’s cool it is great.

I received a sms from my sister about her 26th birthday – for a moment I was confused because I thought I was 26 then I remembered I am 27.  I was 26 for longer than I’ve been 27…

Kimono appear to the target of sewing lately.  L5R LARP.  I went to a fabric shop this afternoon and found some nice colours – the fabric is more than I would normally spend for a LARP but I’m going to put it in the shop afterwards (along with others).  Brown and gold, it looks rather cool actually.  One nice thing about being next door to a habbyshop is that I can get stuff easily.  Today I was struggling witha Japanese sentence and my shirt sleeves (which have always been tight) were bothering me no end.  So I went next door and bought some white thread and now my shirt has short sleeves 🙂  On the down side I only have one long sleeved shirt left.  Unfortunately it seems the habby shop is down scaling to wool only 😦

I made a pineapple upside down cake last night… it was okay but very buttery tasting – I don’t like the taste of butter.  But I’m going to make some more lemon curd – I love it.

Last week it looked like Naruto was being fed frog soup by a frog and Ulquiorra drew his sword 😀

Universe aviator sounds so much cooler than astronaut.

I made some plum chicken stuffed onigiri last night – very tasty.  I can see myself making this often.   And I’ve come across an awesome cupcake.  Normal vanilla cupcake with a teaspoon of lemon curd on top before baking – exceptionally tasty.  Some lemon curd didn’t fit into the container so I put on the cupcakes as an experiment. 

I’m in the process of writing out some hiragana from a low quality scan; some of the furigana is total guess work based on surrounding kana… I can’t get one, just the one – argh.  All my efforts fail and looking at kanji for hours makes me feel like a squint. 

I looked up L5R… it’s confusing…

Edit 20h30:  Alchemist is really so cool.

A guy came in yesterday to pass off some LRH books – I politely told him that I thought LRH was a terrible writer; he agreed and said his fiction wasn’t up to much.  I didn’t point out that I thought it was ALL fiction but sent him on his way.  But not before he quizzed me on the CD player; I sent him to Clicks.  At first I thought he was curious about the CD and I didn’t want to explain again that the music was from games and that I played them…

I was supposed to go skating last night but the ice was full so went to watch Wanted instead – it was cool.  Action, fancy gun shots (so Black Cat); I saw another preview for Batman (can’t wait) and for the third Mummy (Jet Li is so cool).  The theatre at the casino is also nice – proper seats and leg room; also it was R28 a ticket. 

Naruto is going through a explanation patch again but I still hooked to know what’s happening… I think Bleach is entering another long fight but it’s with Ulquiorra 🙂

Alchemist also comes out today 😀

I went to ABSA yesterday morning and was expecting to queue for ages but there was no one in the bank – I was done in less than a minute. 

Driving along roads on which I normally walk is rather odd.  And computers always seem to Epic Fail…

Fiction note:  Almost done with Meteora – for real 🙂  And I started a vampire story but I don’t know if I’ll finish it…

I… I like the DS – it’s cool.

I like The World Ends With You as well.  I set aside the day for it but the battery died at 10h30 or so…  I made some jewellery instead.  But tomorrow!

I have no assignments due this month (all in already) so I’m taking it easy for the rest of the week.  Playing some games and writing some fiction.  I’ve done some work on Final Legend – FFVII heroic fantasy rewrite.  It’s a bit of a toughie trying to decide what to keep and what to leave out – wig mission is out, chocobo mission is out but some other stuff is touch and go.  Also trying to substitute game stuff for ‘real’ stuff.
