I AM BUG SLAYER

30 Jun

If you are a PETA person, don’t read this.

Okay.

I don’t like bugs. I’m fine with caterpillers and stuff, but bugs…uggh. I also do not like arachnids. SPIDERS ARE ICKY.

I start to hop into a shower and there’s a SPIDER IN THE TUB. EWW EWW EWW EWW!!

IT WAS BIG TOO.

So, I turn on the shower, but it was just out of reach of the water and even ran up a bit. It was taunting me. So…I take all of the tooth brushes out of the tooth brush holder and fill up the cup and splash the spider. HEH HEH HEH.

I flows into the main stream of water and is swept to the drain. But, the drain isn’t just a big open hole; it has a bunch of little holes. The spider wasn’t going down. So I turned the water to the tub spout and WAMOOH, it went down the drain.

Crawl up that spout again. I DARE YA!!

Still working on my duct-taped wart. I didn’t let the remover dry the last time I put it on, so I messed up. I did it correctly this time, though.

I have some funny stories, but I’ll wait till tomorrow to tell you about it. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow…I’m scared!!

Duct Tape Really Does Fix Everything

29 Jun

You know the cliché; you can fix literally anything with duct tape. What’s amazing is it actually does!

I went to the doctor a while ago and I told him about a wart I had. He said it was tiny, so we should go get some wart remover and put duct tape over the wart.

Yes. I just said Duct Tape.

I read that what duct tape does is suffocate the warty-virus. The virus needs blood and oxygen to survive. Wart – Oxygen = Dead Wart. Cool! So I’m sporting a stylish duct-tape ring on my left index finger. I’ve been putting on the wart stuff, too. But wart medicine SMELLS!! It doesn’t smell bad like a fart, but it is just exceptionally strong and like “PHEW! SMELLAY!!”

DIE WART!! 👿

Sensitive Tooth!

27 Jun

Don’t you hate it when your teeth spaz out and get randomly sensitive? I hate that.

I have fairly good teeth. I’ve had one filling, but that’s it. My canine on my right side has been being a bit sensitive lately. But I’m going to the dentist soon, and my dentist is super awesome and nice, so it will be looked up on soon. I probably have to get braces soon, too. so maybe my teeth are all jammy-wammy together and are sore. I dunno.

Well, I’m off to play Gran Turismo 4! I’m going to see if I can convince my dad to do a race in a Lancia with me. I want to try one. It’ll probably blow up, though. 😛

Toy Story 3

25 Jun

I went to go see Toy Story 3 in Disney Digital 3-D yesterday. I’ll tell you all about it and the trailers I saw, too! 🙂

Trailers

  1. Despicable Me – My mom says it looks cute, and it actually does. “IT’S  SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE!!!” 😆 Steve Carrel always does really well in kid’s movies.
  2. Megamind – Will Ferrel is playing the lead, so he’s funny in kid’s movies, too. But…Brad Pit? Ooookay then. Looks kind of goofy.
  3. Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore – I want to go see this. They’re making a play at a bunch of old Sean Connery Bond films, which I love, and are making a play-on-words of a character from “Gold Finger” who’s name wasn’t Kitty Galore…but something a bit more..um…dirty. Anyways, those movies are always funny, and a hairless cat for a main villain is a good choice (I think there was a hairless cat in an Austin Power’s film), although one of the girls I went to go see it would disagree with me because she likes hairless cats. Anyways, I really want to see it, and it looks just as funny as the first.
  4. Alpha and Omega – A wolf movie. Basically, an adult movie about hot girl(An ‘alpha’ girl wolf) meets loser guy (an ‘omega’ boy wolf, a term I’ve never heard used in wolf terminology) and…ew…, but it’s been turned into a PG kid flick. Sigh. Won’t be going to go see that.
  5. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga-Hoole – My friend reads this book series and emailed me the trailer a while back. It actually looks pretty good. A “Lord of the Rings with owls” as my mom said. I would actually go see this in 3D, it looks like a 3D-worthy movie.
  6. Tangled – I’ve read about Disney’s CGI version of Rapunzel. Doesn’t look awful, looks sort of goofy Disney funny. Might have to persuade my mom to rent it on Demand when it comes out to our TV thing.
  7. Smurfs – WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!? NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. This looks awful. Eww.
  8. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – Nicholas Cage did a great job in “National Treasure”. I was hoping for a National Treasure 3. But No…Disney makes Nicholas Cage get a freakish hobo haircut and be a magician. Weird. I think the movie looks kind of stupid. It’s by the same guys who did National Treasure, so it will probably have funny bits, like the “These are old man’s shoes…Oh, I LOVE these shoes!” bit, but it looks weird. I don’t like sorcery movies. I don’t like supernatural movies. That’s why I’m not into Harry Potter or Percy Jackson and the whole demigod stuff with Poseidon’s son. Whatever. Not going to go see.
  9. Tinkerbell: The Great Fairy Rescue – Disney seems to love murdering good, supporting characters and making horrendous sequels out of them. Yeck. I like the dude’s sweater vest in it, though. But honestly, it looks stupid.

I think that’s about all the trailers. At least that I can remember.

Now onto the real review! 🙂

I’ve always been a big Toy Story fan. The first one was god, the second great, and the third was as well. Great movie, but I have to agree with Rotten Tomatoes, it was a bit darker than the other two. I still liked it, though. 🙂

But 3D, really? It wasn’t worth going to see it in 3D. It made no difference. You didn’t have giant owls popping out into your face, or people punching you in the face, or…I don’t know. But still, 3D was unnecessary. Good movie, 3D was eh, and me and my mom bawled and laughed hysterically during it.

And the Redwallers Mourn

25 Jun

Much to the Admin’s approval I am sure, I’ve decided to stop doing RV:OI. It’s just I don’t have the time/effort needed to do it, and I don’t like writing fan fictions. I need to work on my other stories and stuff, too.

Also, commissions/art trades are closed. Currently doing one on deviantART, and after that I will be done with commissions and dA. YAY!

In other news, I have a wart on my finger. 😥 I’ve never had a wart before…ick. I am getting it frozen off later, though. Hurray! 🙂

Oh, and I saw Toy Story 3 yesterday. IT WAS AWESOME!! 100/100 for me! GO SEE IT!! I went to go see it in Disney 3-D. I’ve never seen a movie in 3D. These new 3D glasses are weird. They’re not blue and red anymore! 😦 They’re all ‘hip’. And they really push the “RECYCLE YOUR GLASSES SO WE CAN SELL THEM TO SOMEBODY ELSE!!!!” You have to BUY the glasses basically. I kept mine. 😛

I’ll talk about trailers I saw and the movie in a post coming out in a little bit.

Happy Meal Toys Are…Creepy?

23 Jun

So I go to check my mail and I see a headline that catches my eye. It’s saying something about McDonald’s getting sued over toys. I thought maybe the cheap-o factories in China had used lead paint on toys (again) or something, so I click, thinking it would be something worth reading.

Apparently, some non profit organization is suing the clown because,

Using toys to promote “Happy Meals” represents unfair and deceptive marketing and is illegal under various state consumer protection laws

See full article from WalletPop: http://srph.it/8ZQlIL
Oookay.
Another Excerpt:
“McDonald’s is the stranger in the playground handing out candy to children,” CSPI litigation director Stephen Gardner said in a statement. “McDonald’s use of toys undercuts parental authority and exploits young children’s developmental immaturity — all this to induce children to prefer foods that may harm their health. It’s a creepy and predatory practice that warrants an injunction.”
See full article from WalletPop: http://srph.it/8ZQlIL
I’m sorry, but I don’t mind McDonald’s. I don’t really care that, woo, they use cruddy plastic Chinese toys to ‘lure’ kids in. WOW. I WANT THAT CHEAP PIECE OF CRAP! Let’s go to McDonald’s!
No, it was more like, “Momma, can I get a chicken nugget at Mickey Dee’s?” “Yeah sure honey.”
And comparing McDonald’s to the freaks that try to kill kids…Uh, really? I mean, they CALL BACK stuff…They offer healthier alternatives. They don’t advocate for marijuana or alcohol or cigarettes. They don’t kidnap kids.
Wow. They sound SCARY! 🙄
Of course, PETA would disagree. But, um, PETA goes around dressed up like Ronald McDonald if he had been the clown in “It” (Which is a horror movie about a clown, FYI) and scares the pants off of small children by telling them they’re eating nice widdle animals.
Ugh.
So, you shouldn’t eat McDonald’s three times a day everyday. ITS A TREAT. That’s what fast food chains were and are for me; a little treat every so often. I don’t gorge. Everything in moderation, folks.
And then you have Burger King, Carl’s Jr., and Wendy’s. You going to sue them, too, you greedy, money-wanting weirdos? Just like the guy who sued Wendy’s when he ‘found’ a finger in his chili…That he had put there.
Speaking of Burger King, they just stopped putting up chicken nuggets on the menu because they thought they weren’t good enough. That sounds actually very kind and thoughtful..until you connect the dots.
A few weeks ago, about three or four days before BK released that, Mrs. Obama and Rachael Rae went on a mission, to *sniffle* save our kids from the horrors of chicken nuggets! Oh the saints! Wow! 🙄
So, BK is looking out for kids, just like Mrs. Obama, or perhaps are sacking chicken nuggets before they are forced to and penalized? My theory: the latter.

My Plans for a Little Bit

23 Jun

I have stuff to do today 😀

I have to clean house (my room, mainly, and I’ve already semi-cleaned it) because friends are coming over today 🙂

I am going to draw a picture. A MAAGICAL PICTURE.

See, I tried out the style of drawing they use in The Little Mermaid.

Me and my friend were setting a theme, then we’d both draw it, and then show each other the picture. It was fun! First theme was mermaids.

I really enjoyed doing that style. I’m going to try it out some more, hopefully.

I’m taking a friend to go see Toy Story 3 in DISNEY 3-D because if we want to go see it in regular ‘D’ we’d have to go hunt down a movie theater. That will be fun! It looks good. I’ll post a review on here later.

I’ve come to the conclusion from my week on deiviantART that I like it here better. Alone. On my blog. ALONE. It’s not that anybody on/from the wiki bugs me, it’s just there’s a lot of weirdness and weird people and weird artwork and stuff. It’s greatest asset, a ‘multiplayer art gallery’, if you will, is also it’s greatest downfall, in my opinion. So, although my mind views it as all shiny and it wants to be there, all that glitters isn’t gold.

I’m not quitting by any means, just…will be on here more. I won’t stumble across anything dirty on my own blog…Yeah.

Enjoy your Wednesday! 🙂

I’m Baaaack!

Sorry I vanished. I made an account of deviantART and got distracted. 😛

I have a review for you! 🙂

Last night I watched “The Little Mermaid” last night. For the first time since I was five or six.

The Little Mermaid was definitely one of the best Disney movies I’ve seen. I love the Disney styling of art (Will definitely be attempting to do some later today), the plot was good, and the voice-over(s) for Ariel were cast rather well. She had such an awesome singing voice! 😀 And the lighting (Not lightning) was good, too.

I think Disney really struck a cord here; Ariel is a little less of the ‘normal’ princess story. Although she IS a princess, she was much more normal; she forgot the concert, she fell in love with a human (:-O), she’s rebellious and loves adventure, and she’s a wee bit silly. But that’s why we love her! 😀

Ursula is really creepy. I mean, and the “Poor Unfortunate Souls!!” song just brings that to new levels. Me and my mom were laughing when Ursula tells Ariel, in regards to Ursula taking her voice in exchange for becoming a human, “Men up there, they like a girl who holds her tongue. IT’S ALL ABOUT BODY LANGUAGE!!*throws hips around a few times*”

…Awkward…

And, who ISN’T screaming at the top of your little voice inside your head’s lungs when you find out that Ursula has come to the surface as a human with Ariel’s voice?! 😡 And, when Eric kisses her JUST as the sun goes down…I yelled out, “DENIED!!!” But still, that was pretty heart-wrenching.

I had forgotten the whole Mega-Ursula-of-Doom bit at the end…that was actually sort of funny. 😆 But then Eric is like BABOOM and runs her through with the big pointy shipwreck. And then of course, Ariel swims him off to land, and King Triton (her dad) points his big magical trident and wawoom, she’s a human. But at least this time he has the decency of giving her a spangly purple dress. (When Ursula made her a human, other than her shell-bikini, “She’s naked!” as my mom pointed out. But, Disney did a good job hiding anything weird; most of it’s in silhouette or she’s sitting in water and the water is opaque.)

A great movie all-in-all. And I am SO going to attempt to draw Ariel in the magical Disney style. 😀

Illiminate the Impossible, and Whatever Remains, No Matter How Improbable, is the Truth

13 Jun

Yes, I finished Sherlock Holmes! REVIEW TIME!!

Book: “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Okay, so this book is a collection of short stories by Sir Doyle, who write fabulous mystery novels. I have never been so gripped and curious about what lay at the end of this magical twenty-paged story.

I do love Sherlock Holmes stories; they are so…amazing! I love being proved wrong in my guessing, too.

My favorites were “The Adventure of the Red-Headed League”, “The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet”, “and “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches”. All were great stories!

Now, let me just get this out of the way: Sherlock Holmes does cocaine and opium (Opium is a hallucinogenic drug). Now, before you rip up all your Sherlock Holmes books, back then, cocaine and opium were not illegal; they could be purchased and used legally. Now, throughout the books, Watson nags Holmes about his drug usage, telling him how it’s unhealthy and such. But that’s just a little warning.

But these books are positively splendid! Great work, again, Sir Doyle!

I also have some funny news and some bad news.

Bad news first.

This Monday and Tuesday (The 14th and 25th of June), and July 16-23, I will not be making any new posts. I’ll be gone most of the day doing something.

Funny news:

So, my dad, my mom, and I are watching the new Doctor Who last night. My mom says, “I bet that the Sycorax are under there! Remember, the babies?”

A quick definition of “sycorax”.

My mom was thinking of Racnoss. But she said Sycorax instead.

Anyways, so my mom says that and my dad says something along the lines of,

“Don’t do Sycorax. They’re bad for you.”

😆

He’s playing on the word “Sycorax” and “cigarettes”, because if you say them fast, they sound similar. Try it!

I am going to illustrate that someday.

(Doctor Who joke. So if you don’t watch Doctor Who… 😦 )
