When free costs 8 dollars and 40 cents. . .

Yeah, so I'm broke, which is why I try to get more hours at work. I really don't enjoy my work, but we have to pay for this new car. So, what have I been doing for my manga fix? I've been going to the library to borrow the books instead of buying them. YEAH THAT'S RIGHT BECAUSE THEY'RE FREE! Well, for procrastinators like me they actually cost money. The latest late fee is $8.40 and this is not the first time, but it is the highest fee I've had. I really have to get my act together. I could have bought a couple of manga volumes maybe even three if I would stop taking my books in late. The problem is I take out a lot at a time and that adds up even if it's one day. WAAAAAAHHH!!!

So even though we're broke my husband decides to buy a really expensive video card. I asked him if saving money only applied to me. He got really annoyed because honestly he can't play World of Warcraft with that old video card!!!! (seriously though it was really bad) So yesterday when he exchanged his new video card for another that actually worked I added Bleach 3 dvd to the cart LOL. (It has the lovely Ishida on it!) Q added "Bridge to Terabithia" to the cart. If you haven't seen it go now to the store to buy or rent that!!! So we did get a little present out of the trip.

I promised wani_sama that I would post, so here it is. lol Ok, since this post was totally random and lame, I'm leaving you with a little YouTube, About a week ago Q was watching Shrek 2 over and over and we noticed a song in the credits by the band Frou Frou. We both said it at the same time that it was the singer from the cd we bought in California. We love the cd and it will always remind us of that trip...that i will someday write about. The singer's name is Imogen Heap. So I looked it up on YouTube and found one with Sanji and Fruits Basket. It has other anime in there (including Host Club) but I don't watch any of those. So anyway, I hope you enjoy it!


Too Busy to Post!

So guys, I was wanting to post about something that happened this weekend, but I'm so pressed for time that I don't want to rush it.  I have to work tonight.  Tomorrow I sleep while Q is at school and then I take her to piano and karate.  I hope to make a post some time tomorrow.  Hopefully a real life post and also a OP post.  I'm behind in giving you guys links for the anime.  Actually i heard they might take a ton of OP anime down from YouTube because it's being redubbed by a new company.  It's going to be way better (I hope).  So, the only thing I accomplished on lj today is replying to posts and making a new lovely Gackt icon.  (^_^)  Nice!



I really should not even be on the computer since I still have things to do before I leave for my vacation.  Just in case I haven't had a chance to mention it, I'm going to California.  I'll be in San Francisco and Sonora mostly.  I really wanted to post another chapter of One Piece and put up the links to the corresponding anime, but I haven't had time.  I still have some cleaning and packing and one last trip to the store.  I have to be up in five hours!  Anyway, I'll miss you guys since I won't be taking my laptop.  This will give you guys a chance to catch up with all the manga I have posted!!! YAY!!!

Anyway, I just wanted to get on the computer one last time and say BYE!!!  Please pray for my safe return!


Just randomness and real life

Looks like we didn't make it to karate. Q was begging to not go and I was trying to be firm and say "You have to go, no arguments." She was halfway dressed and I suddenly felt way too sick.  That blew my attempts at consistency. ...she was cheering. It's not that she doesn't like karate, she absolutely loves it once she's there. She likes seeing her friends and wani_sama she just doesn't like transitions.  Everywhere she is is the only place she wants to be.  When she was a toddler I used to have to pick her up and drag her out while she kicked and screamed.  That was always fun at the library.

I'm trying to find the creator of the icon I'm using for this post.  I know that I saw it at onepiece_icons  but that community has been around for so long that it'll take me forever. I made a post last month trying to find the creators of three other icons and I got answers to two of them. I'm still trying to find the creator of this naughty little gem. fufufu

Oh and I named the icon I'm using san_zo_bootyshake.  LOL cause they're pirates and it's his booty!  actually i realized it's a pun after I named it.

Edit: please ignore any mistakes in this post.  LJ seems to want to eat things up today.


My Happy Birthday!

Oi minna-san,

I had a really nice birthday on Wednesday. My husband got the day off and we went to a movie. We were going to have lunch too, but we ran out of time. We had to make sure we picked Q up on time. It was because we had a limited amount of time to see a movie that we had only three choices of movie to see. So, we saw "Music & Lyrics". It wasn't as horrible and annoying as I thought it would be. I actually laughed here and there. My husband was most disturbed about Hugh Grant being with Drew Barrymore. ^_^ "That would never happen. He's way too old for her!" lol

So then after we picked up Q they went out for a bit (which gave me time to relax). When they got back we went to P.F. Chang's for dinner. It was really good, but the waitress served me with thinly veiled contempt. O____O She was nice to everyone else though. After dinner we went home to cake and ice cream and Q and J gave me my presents. I got volume 2 of Bleach dvd YAY and a really cool hooded sweatshirt with Ichigo on it in his shinigami uniform. It must have been a Bleach birthday because they also got me Ichigo and Rukia action figures. lol Then J told me that he couldn't find the computer program that I have been wanting. I thought that was a little weird since it's Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo 11 and shouldn't be hard to find. So Q said "THAT'S ALL THE PRESENTS MAMA." Yes, she's loud enough to speak in capslock. Then while I was eating my cake/ice cream and feeling sad, hoping I could find it this weekend, my husband plopped down another present. It was heavy so I thought he finally found a Wii. When I unwrapped it, I still couldn't figure it out. I was sure my husband had said I didn't need a laptop and it was a waste of money, so why did this box say "intel" and "power on the go"? He totally surprised me! If you want to see the computer it's here. That was the good part, but when I turned on the computer it had a pixel flaw in the screen. I had to go to Best Buy the next day with Q (who is never cooperative when it comes to errands). So, I took that one home and it also had the same problem!!! We checked on the internet and it didn't seem to be an issue so I went back to Best Buy for the second time that day and I told them I wanted to open it at the store. fufufu The third one was fine so I also bought some RAM to make it faster. 512 is not enough to run Vista and everything else I'll be doing. Anyway, so now I have a brand new computer and NO ONE ELSE CAN USE IT! Q was very sad because she didn't have a laptop, so I got her some apple dippers at McDonald's *free coupon* and she said she was feeling much better.  Kids are so funny.
