I'm very glad that I'm inside and several stories up right now, since Tremont St. looks like an tributary of the Charles River from out the window.

Earlier we were swapping weather horror stories while having dinner, and I think being in Northern Russia in February has prepared me for anything. But at least snow can be packed down, while rain just gets everywhere. This weather here is supposed to be over by tomorrow morning, but it is wet out there!

Jen and I did end up going to Faneuil Hall, and though it was pouring and we got soaked we had fun. She's a big Red Sox fan, and inside Faneuil Hall we found a place that sold photographs, and she bought one of Jonathan Papelbon, the player she loves. The lady who was there was also very nice, and I realized that Boston really has a lot of Ireland influence at least in how people act. I also got some stamps, and FYI Mom the Suffolk decal is in the mail now for you, so you'll probably get it Monday.

We then went to the new Newbury Comics over there, which literally opened yesterday, because she'd never been in there. We had a good laugh at the stuff in there, and looked around the other shops before heading back. As we were getting back into the T my horrible luck with umbrellas once again manifested, as it exploded when I tried to close it. I apologized profusely, but she said it was okay. It meant that we both got even wetter, but I was more mortified that it had happened again.

I now have a bit of a headache (probably from the rain and the atmospheric changes), but I'm rereading some of my philosophy notes and in general hanging out here. Not sure what I'm doing tomorrow, but I'll think of something. I sort of want to go to the New England Aquarium, but the tickets look a bit expensive. Still, I want to see penguins!

Well that was a nice surprise. I get back from my church rafting trip with a notice that my account has been upgraded to a permanent one (courtesy of my mom ♥) and of course the first thing I did was upload more icons. Yeah, I've got my priorities straight, but I'm glad I get to use this Hokuto icon. She just doesn't get enough love. ^_^

Rafting was fun, though I think I'm fairly dehydrated since I'm having trouble concentrating and have my head up in the clouds right now. *sips ginger ale* Paddling takes a lot more energy than it looks like. Our guide was pretty nice, and I probably got sunburned despite using sunscreen (that just always seems to happen) and my knees are bruised from falling out of the boat at one point, but I'm content. Tomorrow I know that I'll be feeling the tumble I took, but I don't really care right now.

Next week will be fairly quiet, but considering that we'll be going away the week after next it should work out. My mom's going off on a trip with our minister, so my dad and I will fend for ourselves for a while. I've actually been wanting to try some Japanese recipes, so this might just work out. *cackles evilly* Just need to find some place that sells dashi...

I also need to call my music teacher once I can coherantly string a sentence together (I put this down partially so I would,l remember) and apologize for accidentally standing him up by forgetting that we had a make up lesson today and wasn't able to go there due to the rafting trip. I hate doing that to people, so I might buy him a fruit basket for putting him through that. There was just too much to deal with and it slipped my mind. *sigh* I hate doing that to people since I hold them to such a high standard, so I know how it feels to have someone mess up. Maybe I'll make him some miso soup...

Ooh ooh!

This was sent to me by my dad. It's a redub of the "Barney's Christmas" video the White House puts out every year about Bush's Scottish Terrier Barney that's incredibly lame. This is a big improvement, with Barney as a foul-mouthed Scottsman and the "fookin' cat" who must be our Jesse-cat's twin. As the people on the site put it:

"This is just about the most immature thing we've ever seen. Which must be why we've watched it about a dozen times now."

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I cannot accept,
And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people
I had to kill today because they pissed me off.

And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today
As they may be connected to the ass that I have to kiss tomorrow.

Help me to always give 100% at work... 12% on Monday, 23% on
Tuesday, 40% on Wednesday, 20% on Thursday, and 5% on Friday.

And help me to remember...When I'm having a really bad day,
And it seems that people are trying to piss me off,
That it takes 42 muscles to frown
And only 4 to extend my middle finger and tell them to bite me.

I had a praying mantis land on my head today. And I didn't scream. I felt something up there and gently flicked it off, and there was this green thing. I know a lot of people are scared of them but I think they're really cool. They have a certain asian element to them, so it seems. Anyway, I picked this thing up and put it in the grass rather than have it trek across the pavement in the blazing sun (reminded me of Lawrence of Arabia, insect style) and it didn't seem too freaked out.

And a few hours ago we had this visitor on the side of the pool:

A beautiful red tailed hawk. It let me hold still long enough to take a picture of it before Jesse scared it off. Didn't mind me apparently.

And day off tomorrow! Good, since I need sleep. Badly.

Let's see... the strangest thing to happen this week had to be having a woman pull up at the carwash and pay me, and then casually saying:

"Could you make sure you really get the back of the car? Someone egged it."


Yes, there was an egg. And worse, it had been sitting in the sun for hours and hence resembled my breakfast the next day. It took two tries to get it off, the second resorting to the industrial strength rim cleaner that I usually save for really bad rims (which for some reason Volvos seem to have more than other cars...) which luckily got it off. But yeah... an egg. Baked egg. Made me feel weird when I had eggs for breakfast the next morning.

In other news, I had a fist sized dent in my car's rear bumper. I am not sure how that happened, but it was not fun to discover. I actually ended up turning my car around in the parking lot at my job just so I wouldn't have to look at it, since the booth is placed so that I was staring at this big dent for an hour before I turned it around. Grah. Might get that fixed at some point if only to help my pride.

And to prove why I should never come up with a video idea after 8pm, this is my entry for a contest of "The most horrible thing you can pull off" on The challenge was to spend less than an hour on it in total, and I think I had a total of maybe 10 minutes after a space of 3 seconds to come up with the idea. You've been warned, contains *multiple* gropings and Eminem. Seemed like a pretty horrible combination. I was greatly amused and cracking up as I was doing it, maybe a bit too much. Oh well, the horribleness is located at a YSI link here if anyone is so daring. ;)

I wanna go next year for the entire weekend! It was very fun, I blew absolutely all of my money, but it was fun! I only managed to find a few other Hellsing people, but the atmosphere was great and it was overall just a great, fun filled Saturday. I could go on, but I'll go straight to the few pictures I took, as well as some rather-crappy quality video I took with the digital camera.

Insane cosplayers lie beneath, be warned! )
