Okra Flowers

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

So many Dream Fragments. @.@

I ended up with 10 more Okra seeds than I wanted, so I watched them bloom.



But I still have 4 sets of 99 Dream Fragments. I already have 40 of each type of seed from the Party Master. What am I going to do with them? @.@

Patch of D00m and Pirates

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Not to be confused with GM-Pirate, although she is quite an awesome one.

Well, we had our patch for this event:


It patched fine, which is a tad surprising, since previous patches have had problems, but no complaints about that. Except, trying to log in the game will get you stuck on the “Connecting to Server” bit. So, although we got the patch fine, we can’t enter the game to see it at all. Joy.

Dragonfly had to postpone her Earth Day race because of this too, but she was uber awesome and got a Forum event approved for those of us who wanted something to do. We played Guess the Monster! Of course, I immediately sent her the forum PM, figured I would at least get the Kimchi, nomnomnom, but…I WON THE PIRATE SHIRT!

It’s all yellow and Pirate-y.


This is fate. All day yesterday I was listening to the song He’s a Pirate:

And so, winning this Pirate shirt…Fate. Fate I tell you.

Back to the Patch. New Item Mall items for Earth Day curtesey of Dragonfly.

Earth Day

Hopefully the patch won’t cause to many in-game problems. *crosses fingers*

Arcade Superstars

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

So, I found out via Lucid’s blog that the Arcade Superstars event winners have been posted! Look here!

I honestly didn’t think I’d win any of it, since I only played the mini-games for the first couple of games, but…I ended up winning second for the Hello Kitty Puzzle one! Yay!

I realize now that FFF2 has made me think I should get a lot of Loyalty Points from events. So when I see that I got around 700 LP from the Arcade Superstars…I’m so disappointed. Where’s my 10k LP!? I got 10k from the FFF2! XD

Monster Hunter

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Backdated, but meh.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of the Fruits Basket GM events! But I was able to make this one.

Gather Around

We’re all at the edge so when GM-Lychee says “GOOOOO!” we can be first. XD

I’m so happy we did this version of MH in Sanrio Harbor, it’s much easier than The Maze Plain.

I one all 4 items though, and so in the end I matched Lychee!


I didn’t really care for the shirt, to be honest. It makes me look fat, but that skirt…I really wanted it. My first two items I got the bag and shoes. The third item…I got the shirt. So I had to win again to get that skirt! It’s pretty. Anyway, white outfit for me, yay!

And then I got my guild-mates to help me stare at Dewberry. He was cool though, didn’t react at all. *vein throb*

Life and Baka Lords

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Reiko先生(sensei/teacher), my Japanese teacher, does a Japanese play using her Japanese class every spring. This spring is her last time doing the play (because it’s so stressful, she says), and I’m going to be doing some dances for it. Had to wake up early (8am!) to get over to the campus at 10am. Set my alarm for 8am…and I wake up to it going off at 9am. Waai! I looked to make sure, and yes it was set at 8am. So I either zombie snoozed it, or slept through it. Usually, when I snooze my alarm, I remember it as I don’t really go back to sleep. For some reason though…bleh. Woke up late. That was not cool. I got there an hour late, and practiced the drum dance (the one I’m having trouble with). I’m kind of excited. After practicing with some others for 30 minutes I watched everyone else practice their lines. Only one guy really stood out, he’s the ‘Baka Lord’ or ‘Idiot Lord’ and he was so~ good! He really acted perfectly for his part.

On the way home I stopped at Subway. Nomnomnom.

My USB mouse decided it wanted to die today. I think I’ve had it for about 3 or 4 years or so; in that respect it’s been good but…stupid thing should have lasted longer. I hate using the laptop touchpad. It really bugs me. Playing games with a touchpad is even worse.

Luckily, I had a $25 Best Buy gift card from Christmas that I hadn’t spent. So when my parents and sister went out to JCPenny’s, I went with them. I got a purple Logitech one. It’s purple. And Purple. Purple. ♥ I ended up spending about $7 out of pocket, since it was ~$32 (with tax), but it’s purple.

Then we decided to eat at Red Lobster, just because we were nearby one. I had the Wood-Grilled Scallops, Shrimp, and Chicken meal. I am so~ stuffed right now. Ahh, but it was good.

I also got permission from my parents to start an Anime Club at my house on Friday’s! So every Friday at 7pm I’ll be hosting an Anime Club for my Japanese buddies (and their friends). I’m really excited! Hopefully, next Friday will be our first meeting! Looking forward for it! And at the same time, I’m not, because our play is on Saturday…but I do have 1 dance down and the other 50% down, so I’m not too worried. The Princess part though, it looked as if she couldn’t memorize her lines, so I might try memorizing it just in case 先生 asks someone else if they can do it. It seems like she might. I should have gotten a speaking part, it seems like it would be fun, but I kind of freaked out. Oh well, at least I’m in some part of it and the dancing it fun. XD

Title: Tales From the House of the Moon
Author: Resmiranda
Summary: Kagome, now in college, discovers the tale of Sesshomaru and Rin. Grief can be a prison, but the bonds of love are not easily broken. What is the truth behind fairytales? [SessKag] [COMPLETE]
Type: Anime: Inuyasha
Genre: Adventure/Drama
Rating: M
Chapters: 42
Warnings: Kagome & Sesshomaru: Romantic Pairing, graphic
My Thoughts: A bit too drama-y for my tastes, but cute nonetheless. Loved when they finally got together, but then…Very well written though. I like her Sesshomaru.

From Chapter 39:

“What are you reading?”

“A book.”

“Yes, I can see that. What book are you reading?”

“None of your business.”

“This sounds kinky. I feel left out.”

“It isn’t.”

“…Seriously, what are you reading?”

A sigh. “It is called The Body of the Lotus.”

“That does sound kinky.”

“I assure you it is not. The subtitle is ‘Feminism and the Politics of Gender in Postwar Japan.’”

“…Okay. So… why are you reading that?”

“One of my clients told me that I do not understand women. I think that is an unfair accusation, but would feel remiss if I did not at the least give my conceptions a cursory check-up.”


“…You do not sound convinced. What do you mean, ‘oh’?”

“I mean you don’t understand men, either. But you’re still one of the most highly sought-after therapists in Tokyo, though I can’t imagine why.”

“I admit that it sometimes puzzles me as well.”

“Oh, you think you’re not that good?”

“No. I think my genius often goes unnoticed. I’m amazed any of the intellectual powerhouses that walk through my door recognize my prowess at all.”

“God, you’re full of yourself. Isn’t that some kind of psychological disorder? Narcissism, or something?”

“Only if my perception of myself is vastly out of proportion to reality.”

“You make my brain hurt.”

“Once again I triumph in the realm of intellectual combat.”

“I need a drink.”

“No. I think my genius often goes unnoticed. I’m amazed any of the intellectual powerhouses that walk through my door recognize my prowess at all.”

“Only if my perception of myself is vastly out of proportion to reality.”

Sesshoumaru is arrogant ♥

The chat filter

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

…lets you learn new things!

So, Mikuru set of the chat filter with Firstfully, the reason being STFU is censored (Firstfully). So, I let her know why and then she mentioned that Rikki’s Hat was censored. Or rather, the shat part of it was censored. I had no idea what that meant so I googled it.

Apparently, shat is another term for shit. Or it’s the past tense of shit.


I shat today. *snorts*

/omg I can’t stop! *gigglesnort*

Music Playlist

Here is a Google Doc of my playlist. It has all 2,000+ of my songs there with the Title, Artist, and Album Name.

If you’d like a song from it, let me know and I’ll give it to you in return for an Asian Pop song you like that I don’t have. ^^;

Note: This should be each time I add a new song!

Title: Eir’s Tomorrow
Author: Hades’ Phoenix
Summary: The Planet isn’t willing to let death take away its greatest weapon. If Cloud can’t save the past, then he’ll be damned to watch history repeat itself. Time travel, SxC, ZxA.
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Chapters: 15
Warnings: Slash (aka: Boy on Boy)
My Thoughts: Time Travel Story! Except, he is a spirit for the first couple of chapters before he gets his body back. I like it. Final Fantasy FTW! Drama-y, but…exciting too.

So in chapter 15, the Turks are going to assassinate the President to make Rufus President.


I’ve received orders to stop your mission,” Tseng said without preamble. “Your actions have not gone unnoticed, and Lazard is now missing. Heidegger believes that you and Lazard are in conspiracy.”

“Do you know where Lazard is?” Sephiroth asked through numb lips.

No. The President in unconvinced that you’re guilty of anything more than probing too deeply into Hojo’s business, considering your…distaste for the professor is well known. But Heidegger will continue to push for more than just a cease and desist.”

“The timing is too convenient.”

Indeed,” Tsend murmured. “But since Hojo was so indiscrete as to leave a SOLDIER bloody and unconscious in a public hallway, as well as the protests that have been pushing at the doors, the disappearance of a department director is forcing the President to sit up and take notice.”

The phone connection crackled slightly in the silence.

This is an official order to stand down and stop pursuing Hojo.”

Sephiroth smiled faintly. Tseng had technically followed Heidegger’s orders to the letter, if not the spirit. “I understand.”

A contingent of SOLDIER Seconds and Thirds waited for him back at the ShinRa launchpad, but Sephiroth passed it by and to the tower. He was quiet as the elevator took him up to the highest floor where the President’s business office and living quarters took up the entire level. When the general entered the office without knocking, he found himself faced with the President seated at his desk and the primary four department heads standing before him. Reeve, fortunately, acted entirely natural, even if the others rarely took notice of him anyway.

“Sephiroth!” the President smiled, spreading his hands wide over his desktop as though granting some sort of benediction. “I take it you heard from Tseng, then?”

“I did.” Reeve may have been a good actor, but Sephiroth had only ever learned to freeze his emotions to keep them hidden.

“Well, then I’m glad you’ve seen things our way. Now, your men are waiting at the helicopter – ”

“Mr President, if I may,” and there was absolutely no way for him to pretend that was in any way respectful, but at least it hadn’t come out derisive, “I have matters I wish to discuss with you. I was told that Lazard has disappeared and I need to know who my liaison with ShinRa will be while myself and my men are abroad.”

“Well, me, of course,” said Heidegger, puffing up his already expansive chest. Palmer and Scarlet seemed amused. “I am the senior director of SOLDIER, after all.”

“You are. The matters I wish to discuss with the President, however, extend beyond your station.”

“Now see here, Sephiroth – ”

“Calm down, my good man, there’s no reason to get upset,” said the President with a smile. “Why don’t you and the other directors wait outside in the hall while I hear what the general has to say, and if it’s appropriate, then I will discuss the matter with you in turn.”

Reeve didn’t so much as throw Sephiroth an unusual look. When the room cleared out and the door closed, the President said, “So what did you want to talk about, Sephiroth?”

The general could see why ShinRa was playing along. The thought of having General Sephiroth needing him for anything was enough to rouse the President’s ambition and sense of control. Not even Hojo had managed to retain control of Sephiroth, and that same need for power meant the President would never surrender information – about Cloud, about Hojo, anything – as long he felt he was in the superior position. Hand resting lightly on the Masamune’s hilt, the general said, “That was very stupid of you.”

Then Sephiroth put the Masamune through the President’s chest until the tip of the blade hit the floor.

His PHS rang again.

“Yes?” he answered calmly, one hand holding the phone and the other gripping his sword. A choking, spasmodic twitch from ShinRa’s dying body sent a shudder down the length of the weapon.

Sir, the men are awaiting your presence to proceed to Mideel.

“I’m on my way.”

He called Tseng.

“The cover story we arranged with Rufus concerning insurgents from below the Plate is no longer necessary. I imagine he’ll want to be briefed.”

Tseng disapproval was almost audible.

“…I see.”

‘That was very stupid of you.’ *gigglesnort* ‘Cover story is no longer necessary.’

Sephiroth is badass ♥

How to Train Your Dragon

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

So, I watched How to Train Your Dragon yesterday because my brother recommended it. I must say, it is quite a good movie.

Main character: Hiccup
(Yes, that is his name).

He is a Viking. Everyone in his village fights dragons that plague their town. He pretty much sucks at dragon hunting, but can certainly build stuff. His newest invention that shoots out a weapon…manages to get the rarest dragon evar!



He looks just so silly!

And then:

This is SPARTA“This is…SPARTA!”

He really says, “I am a VIKING”, but personally, I like the sparta one more. Or better yet, “Where is SORA!?”

So, he can’t really kill the dragon so he frees it and then: *pounce*

Toothless Eyes

You dead foo!Hiccup2

Of course, he doesn’t die (what would the story be about, then?) and the dragon goes off to who knows where. Being the smart Viking Hiccup is, he follows it.

“You can’t see me, I can’t see you!”lol

And then he get’s a name:
“So you’re toothless huh?”

Not quite. Haha!

Toothless Smile

Now does that look like a face that’ll hurt you? :o

And then he turns into a Dragon Rider. *eyeroll*

Check it out if you have time.
