~No-face and other fancies~



This guy here, this guy is amazing.

  I can’t really put a finger on it, but for some reason, he is just so interesting to me.  I even thought about making a costume since Halloween is almost upon us. But I don’t really do Halloween. Candy is fun and all, don’t get me wrong. And I LOVE cosplay! Nevertheless…I don’t know if I will even have time to complete it. The mask would be fun to make though… ^^
  
Other fancies include,

Excitement about Hunter Hayes first #1 song!

 Wanted, I knew, would make it to the top. I think it’s because of his spectacular amount of fans. I don’t know anyone personally (Ya know, besides myself.) but I have seen him live on a television event once. True, I can’t be sure that they were all his fans, but the meet-and-greet sure had a lot of young girls. Lol.  In my opinion, I think it was a good call to make Wanted a single.

  I guess that’s really all. I still need to upload some pics and get them on here. I just need to send ‘em…But I am much too lazy.

Let’s hope the day goes well for me and my family, it’s been a disappointing morning. May the odds be in our favor…

Savvy?


Now, I wasn’t going to start a Talk like a Pirate day post with a title like, “Ahoy There!” Only because I thought it would be a little corny. And Savvy is about the only “pirate word” I used today. I like how Jack Sparrow says it.  It’s been pretty obvious to me how much my family has been waiting for this day. I guess “Scurvy Dog” has been a popular saying in the house…And a child had a Rubber Duck taped to his shoulder, saying that that was as close as he could get to a parrot.  Needless to say it was kind of funny. ^^

  I have a bunch of pictures to upload before I can post anything more, so…
HAPPY TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!

Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo...

Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo, fishy in the sea,

Tiny little fishy, who could you really be?

Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo, magic set you free,

Oh she's a little girl with a round tummy.

  I guess it's pretty obvious which song is stuck in my head at this point...^^ All because I went on a Google search for Ghibli films. I am looking for the next film that my "Ghibli group" will watch next. Requests include, "PONYO! PONYO! Pick Ponyo this time!" I pardoned the request because I decided that we will save the "Lovey-touchy-feel-y" movies for last. We have seen Ponyo before. After it was released on DVD, we got it on Netflix. It was really good, so don’t get me wrong.

(BTW, Fujimoto was total AWESOMESAUCE! Fun fact, the English voice of Fujimoto was Liam Neeson. He was Qui-Gon-Jinn in the new/first Star Wars. AND I JUST READ ON IMDB THAT HE WAS THE VOICE OF ASLAN ON NARNIA! Now I know why Fujimoto and Aslan and Qui-Gon are all amazing. Yes.)

 I had a discussion with one of the members. This is how it went:

Me: Hey, what film do you want to see next?

(Let’s assume her name is Hyuga. I call her that anyway 'cuz she likes Hinata Hyuga from Naruto.) I don't know, what's there?

Me: Well, I want to see Princess Mononoke...What do you think?

Hyuga: Is it nice, or EPIC?

Me: Well, it's rated PG-13...

Hyuga: ~Smiles~ Sure! ~Walks away~

 I am kinda in an Anime mood tonight. I watched bits and pieces of Naruto episodes 30, and 31.  Only because I wanted to know what Orochimaru's voice sounded like. He is a very...interesting?...character. Little did I know that I already knew what he sounded like. The guy who does his voice also does Amon's voice, from The Legend of Korra. (Steve Blum) Amazing how you figure out things in a crazed Anime mood. I think to finish that; I will do a Manga-marathon. I need to start Volume 10 of Naruto. A Splendid Ninja. Rock Lee VS Gaara. I know for a fact the Lee gets basically destroyed. Totally crushed when I figured that out...

  5 more things tonight:
The Cosby Show is on TVland now, I hadn't known that and now I am excited. ^^
My favorite song--at this point--by The Script is The End Where I Begin.
The Saga Begins is the greatest song ever. :D Almost as good as Weird Al's play on "My Sharona." MY BOLOGNA! Teehee.
PS: I am a pixie. And yes, they do express emotion. Despite what "some people I know" think. ♥
I am addicted to "Lights" by Ellie Goulding. Adele and Ellie are both British, I believe. Love. :)

  This day whopped my rear. Exhausted.

Cold on a Saturday Morning.


   This past week has been pretty much like every other week. I bought some K9 Advantage II for Ginger. It has only been 3 days, but I have not seen one flea on her. She seems less annoyed and she follows me around again! For a while she totally ignored me, I thought that it might have been the recent company that's been annoying her. (Mostly because she is a little spoiled brat and doesn't like it when my attention is divided between her and other people.) But now that I think of it, she may have been agitated for other reasons. 

  Now she is fine. She seems a whole lot happier and I believe that the Advantage stuff really works. I had heard things about it on commercials, but I spent some time reading reviews online as well. Some of them said that it was better than Frontline, and others said that it didn't work at all. Well, Ginger is an 11 pound Mini Long-haired Dachshund, and it works for her. So happy that it does! :)

 What I have thought about in the past couple days is that some bits and pieces of this blog are really high-strung sounding. I don't know if that's a bad thing, sometimes I just get really excited! I am working on it though. Lol.

 I have also learned that if you get 1 or 2 books from the library, thinking that the week will be busy, odds are that you will be finished with the books in 2 days. That’s how it is for me, anyway.  Whenever I get maybe 7 books, my weeks are so jammed with crud to do, that I never get to read! I have been pretty crammed trying to read the books I have now...Then again, I can always renew them. I wanted to take some time off today, however, because I just wanted to sit here and blog. 

  It's really cold here, which isn't surprising because it is almost fall. I really didn't feel like doing anything else. Yesterday I worked all day. Which was my fault, I guess. I didn't have to work that week, but I chose too...I think it was a better choice in the end. 

 Besides reading, working, school and other things, I have been trying to draw Anime. Mostly characters from Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden. So far I have done one of Naruto and Anko, two of Rock Lee (because for some reason I find him cool and awesome. Lol) I have done one of Orochimaru, and one of Sai. Sai was introduced into the series in the first episode I had ever watched. I guess at that point I was just looking for a character to be my favorite. And that was maybe a year, year and a half ago. I was pretty new to it. Still, today, even though there are a couple new characters added to that list, Sai is still one of my faves. Favorites besides Sai include, Hatake Kakashi, Rock Lee, and Gaara. That is basically it now. I am not that far along in the manga, and I have been trying to keep myself from watching the Anime because I wanted to finish the manga first. 

 Other things that happened...? Hmm... Me and my "Studio Ghibli group" (in other words, a group of my buddies who watch Ghibli films, and are reading/watching Naruto with me) watched Spirited Away this week.  It was AMAZING! Like, completely AMAZING! It was an AWESOME movie! I will try to get a real review out sometime soon. I am most likely to watch it again. So there should be a post about it some time. Hehe ^^

  Later days, 

Natsu

The Continued List.

 Hello, long time no see! I have been waiting for an opportunity to actually get on my laptop. Sure, I could do it anytime, but I was never motivated until today. I decided that I should finish the post that I started, and frankly, I missed blogging!


       So here is the list I was talking about.

  •         NARUTO VOLUME 9
  •         HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
  •         WAITING FOR SUMMER'S RETURN~KIM VOGEL SAWYER
  •         THE INHERITANCE~TAMERA ALEXANDER
  •         REMEMBERED~TAMERA ALEXANDER
  •        MAID TO MATCH~DEEANNE GIST
  •         STEVE JOBS~WALTER ISAACSON
  •         Revealed by Tamera Alexander
  •         Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (The original Novel)
  •         Spirited Away, a Studio Ghibli film
  •         Courting Trouble by Deeanne Gist
  •         Deep in the Heart of Trouble by Deeanne Gist


These are the books/movies I have recently been working on. Naruto, Howl’s Moving Castle, Remembered, Maid to match, and Spirited Away, are finished. My plan was to write a brief review about each of them.  Here we go!


 Naruto Volume 9: Not much to say about it…Except it was awesome! It covered the third part of the Ch√Ľnin Exams. Fights including, Kiba VS Naruto, Hinata VS Neji, and the last part of the battle between Ino and Sakura. Then Rock Lee was chosen to fight Gaara. And then it was...TO BE CONTINUED! Now I have Volume 10 on hold. ^^ (Totally killed me, I wonder who will win. No internet spoilers for me this time!) Over all, it was really good. If you are into that kind of stuff.




 Remembered.  If you have read Rekindled, and basically any other books by Tamera Alexander, this one will please you. When I picked up Revealed, I realized that the characters all showed up in each other’s lives’ in the books. Larson and Kat Jennings made a small appearance in Remembered. It took me a couple minutes—after I finished the book of course—to realize that they were in Rekindled. It was kind of epic. Remembered was a wonderful book. Period. Alexander hasn't failed me yet!


 Maid to Match, written by Deeanne Gist, was also wonderful. I honestly started around 3 on one afternoon. I finished the book around 10:30 that same evening. It was one of those books that I didn’t want to stop. Not even for things like eating or ya know, moving so your legs don’t fall asleep to the point where you can’t use them for an hour.  

If it isn’t quite obvious, I am into Historical Fiction…Hehe.

 Anyway, that about settles it. I have finished my list.

  So, how did your Labor Day weekend go? Mine included an all-day read-a-thon 
of Remembered, BBQ ribs with the family, and to finish it off, a new episode of Adventure Time! Which really wasn't a huge highlight of the evening…I was reading so I really didn't even pay attention. Lol.

 The summer is coming to a close, and now I have the school bus down the street to tell me what time it is in the morning. Not the greatest thing, but I won’t complain. I need to learn how to get up early anyway. ^^

  I should move on now, I still have one more thing to do before I leave the blogosphere for today.
