Hello, Friends!  
If you were wondering, the reason I dropped off the face of the internet without warning was that eltea came to visit. XD

She brought me an a-ma-zing gift, natch, which encompasses candy, Mad Libs, Spiderman and Davy Jones Pez dispensers, chocolate-covered blueberries (because I mentioned in a scene that they'd be good, but that I'd never had any :3), crayons, chocolate, and a photo album with pictures of awesome things and people (including some of YOU ♥).

It is entitled the Anti-Stress Kit. :D

Also, she bought me a zillion more userpics, *faints*

I'm trying not to freak out and just upload them all at once, haha. XD IT'S A COMPULSION.

Umm... we talked about wormholes at great length. You are not surprised. We made up more stuff than I can honestly remember. XD We had crepes, smoothies, popcorn, a shit-ton of candy, pizza, and ice cream, though not all at once. We hung out at Starbucks. We discovered that orange Nerds have a tendency to end up on the floor. (No, seriously, of eight that escaped and found their way to the floor, seven of them were orange. That's just weird. XD)

Aaaaannddd... "9" was really good! :D Well, it was really enjoyable, I should say -- it's one of those movies that you can't really think about too much, because the whole plot falls apart, but it was so much fun that I completely forgave it. It's intense, and innovative, and adorable, and really engaging, and I spent long stretches of it with my mouth hanging open. XD The villains (such as they are?) are AWESOME -- absolutely nightmarish and fantastically imagined -- and I love the world. It's very steampunk and post-Apocalyptic at the same time, and I totes fell in love with it. :3

Plus they figured out that the only way to make Elijah Wood's voice cuter was to have it coming out of this guy:

D'aww, they were just all cute. XD

So yeah, parts of it were kind of like, "Did you guys really think this through?", but it was so high-octane and high-awesome that I mostly let it go. XD

Umm... I ought to have more things to say. :| But I'm kind of wiped out, even though we slept a LOT. idk why. XD'

Tuesday I have to submit my Creative Writing story. I finished it on Thursday, and Friday, eltea and I finally gave my second-to-main character a name, omgwtflol. XD The best part is that I'd been using "[ ]" to stand in this whole time, and we were looking at that, and then at the same time went, "Maybe call him 'Bracket.'"

And it stuck.

I can't wait to watch a room full of English majors (okay, and one Psych major and a Comp Lit major or something) try to analyze the living hell out of it. >D

Thassall. ._.

omigawd. I had two last night and was curling my toes with chocolate joy, haha. XD

I think I saw the short film, too -- and the full-length movie really captured the essence of it, I feel, though obviously they couldn't slave over every moment in quite the same way.

I'm secretly utterly pleased with it. 8D Though the part that goes, "Bracket's jacket" just makes me laugh every time. XD'

The anti-stress kit is a wonderful idea. But of course it would be, since we all know what a raving genius your Eltea is. ;D

Yay for finishing your story! Bracket is an adorable name, I think, but my programmer instincts tell me that there should also be a Curly Brace, and possibly a baby sibling named Semicolon. XP

And I'm kinda wondering if the analyzing-the-hell-outta-your-story will involve people questioning the deeper meaning behind Bracket's name. (Don't spoil their fun if they do!) XD
Vitamin C: Jethrotierfal on September 15th, 2009 12:30 am (UTC)
IKR. I am so spoiled. :3

Hahaha. XD There are probably enough semicolons in the story to make up for it; I'm an addict. ...and no, that wasn't to prove a point; it wanted to be th... I give up. XD

The way we do workshops, the class talks about each of two stories for half of the class (so like forty-five minutes per story, O_o), and the author isn't allowed to speak. At the end of that time, you get your say, and then you work on it and come back with it when the cycle goes through again. So if they talk about it a ton this time, I'll probably give in and rain on their parade, if only so that they don't look so deeply into it next time when there are other things in need of their attention! XD

*waves madly and jumps you*

Yoooo! *is new to LJ again?* XD

Has been too long. ;___;

Yay to more userpics!! :D It's difficult not to fill them all up, I know. XD

I find that funny because I just bought myself a new bunch of userpics and am struggling not to upload every pretty icon I see XD

Chocolate-covered blueberries sound insanely awesome, plz. 8D And oh goodness, you're making me hungry with all that foooood. :d

"9" sounds interesting, though I haven't even heard of it so...^^;; Although I do like Tim Burton films so that might be one to check out. ^^ And how awesome is Steampunk?? ;D

Bracket is now The Name to have. :D

Good luck with everything darling!! ♥

Waaaaah! 8D *tackles*

IKR. I'm just slapping my hand here trying to keep it away from the "upload" button, hahaha. XD

SRY. Just ecstatic. Food is my liiiife. Literally and figuratively. XD'

They marketed it here, but not all that aggressively. You'd probably like it, I think. 8D

Isn't it just? 8D Makes me want to change my name, haha. XD

Thank you!! ♥

Chocolate covered blueberries sound awesome, ngl.

They are every bit as fantasmic as I imagined, haha. XD

:3333 And hee, she enjoys winning that way, haha. XD

IKR. I'm so excited. XD' Especially since the other character's name does open up a lot of thematic parallels and things... *evil laughter* XD

Man, I reaaally want to see that movie.
Vitamin C: Mello - Reasonabletierfal on September 15th, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
I think you will LOVE it. *___*

Steampunk! Hell yessss... my favorite kind of look. Must post those Dragon*Con pictures... combined with Tim Burton imaginations, sci-fi short stories and the director of Wanted... those are just added bonuses!

My hope is to take the older kiddo to see it Tuesday.

Yay... for fun and productive times combining into one spectacular weekend. Major kudos for eltea's "anti-stress kit" and more userpics. What's with everyone on my flist needing more... oh wait, who am I to talk?

*slinks off in hopes that no one's noticed the fangasmically-inordinately numerous uploads of usericons going on over at sabriel75's profile*

Vitamin C: Mello - Reasonabletierfal on September 15th, 2009 12:34 am (UTC)
I looooove steampunk. :D And oooh, you must indeed...!!

It was a very good weekend. ^^ And haha, I may or may not stalk icons so obsessively that I always notice these things! O:)
Marmmarmaladefever on September 14th, 2009 04:07 pm (UTC)
Ooh, fun prezzie!

I had the opportunity to see 9 the other night, but I passed it down because I had to get up early the next day. Maybe some other time.

I hope they love your story! I love it when they love your story and they struggle to find something constructive to say! Gah but I miss that CW class high... :P
Vitamin C: Arthurtierfal on September 15th, 2009 12:35 am (UTC)

That makes sense. XD Going to bed early is a reasonable excuse in my book. ^^

I hope so, too! XD Though the way things have been going so far, I'm sure they'll find something to tear apart until my soul withers and dies... One of my main concerns is that I don't really write in a *LITERARY* voice, but that's not something that I can really opt into. I guess we'll see what they think on Thursday. ^^

Eltea is amaing. Need I say more? XD
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on September 15th, 2009 12:36 am (UTC)
Nope! That pretty much sums it up! 8D
marissaabitofadork7 on September 15th, 2009 01:01 am (UTC)
Yep. That's what I thought. XD
