Yesturday I finally got all of the college wank over with, and I mean over with what's done is done, so now I don't have to worry about possibly not graduating high school~. Although the times kind've suck; on Mondays I have to take an English class from 6:30 to 9 at night ):. Buuuut, I'm desperate, and anyways I have study hall first period at high school, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. So now not only do I get the benefit of leaving school at 11 everyday, I also don't start classes until at least 12:30 (and that's only on Tuesdays), so yeah. Gonna have lots of free time~. Which means getting a job shouldn't be much of a problem, yay xD.
I watched the first Austin Powers movie with my sister for the first time in forever it seems, and haha, I can't believe I never got that into them before. The ridiculous everything provided by Mike Myers and the awesome mini-guns and FUNKADELIC SUITS WITH FRILLY CRAVATS *twitch* and and and the choice of music and just the overall comedy is just....perfect. I'm gonna have to marathon the rest later (^_^). Aaaand now I'm just glad to be home now after getting back from the BMV 'cause that place is fucking horrible (I'm convinced every BMV has a black aura of hate because everytime I go there, no matter what mood I was in before, I get really, really pissed, which is bad for everyone else around me because that's when I'm really blunt and scathing about nearly everything) . Basically, a good majority of local places that offer driving tests have just...stopped, leaving me with only two places to choose from, which meant that I'd have to wait a ridiculous amount of time to take it. Also, my temps expire tomorrow, so I had to get them renewed for when I go to take my driving test in a couple weeks Dx. I had no idea they make you re-take the test and everything again; thank goodness that's easy. Although my test just sort've ended for some reason before I'd even answered all of the questions, and I'd only gotten 2 wrong....I still passed though, which was good enough for me because I wasn't about to stick around any longer than I had to at that place uuugh.
Also, I might be going through a phase now (I blame Kuroshitsuji and it's emphasis on ENGLISH THINGS and FEALTY TO THE QUEEN/LOYALTY/HONOR) where I'm into butlers (Uhurhur no shock there - also Kuroshitsuji's fault) and....anime set in Europe? I dunno, but I had this odd feeling of wanting to try to watch Le Chevalier d'Eon again, so I did and OMG. I didn't really start to like it a whole lot until episodes 3/4 (DURANDDURANDDURAND <3), but even with it's flaws it's actually kinda awesome. Story so far is that d'Eon's sister Lia is dead and he wants to not only find out who killed her, but also the mystery surrounding her death and the reason behind the sudden enslaught of MINDLESS ZOMBIES WITH SOME KIND OF GOO THAT COMES OUT OF THEM and for the sake of being "cool" a lotta references are made to Christianity I dunno. Not only that, but there's also promises of at least a decent amount of political uprising, which is actually right up my alley even though I don't like politics (It's more the conspiracy/secret organization concept I'm interested in really; I'm a huge sucker for that). Oh, and when d'Eon gets in a bind, his sister's soul possesses him through his sword (fancy Latin scrolls in blood-red on his sword, it's cool) and somehow while defying all logic, he takes on the appearance of a woman. It's not as creepy as it sounds, at least in the anime (The manga, however, is probably just as creepy as I remember it).
From episode 4 alone, there is:
CROSSDRESSING (Kinda, I guess)
RANDOM LIMB-HACKING (Laughed so freaking hard when d'Eon/Lia hacked Caron's arm off. "Huh?" Whooosh)
REALLY DRAMATIC ARM MOVEMENTS/SWORD FIGHTS
That great scene where Durand holds out his arms to try to help Teillagory climb out the window, only to get a big slap in the face when he jumps out and basically ignores him standing there
REALLY, REALLY HOMO LIP-RUBBING
The only things that really make me mad and keep me from completely liking this show is that 1.) the main guy is a freaking whimp, yet somehow he's a knight wtf, 2.) the kid whose name is I think William or something, is utterly useless at everything (I like his seiyuu though), and 3.) the really obnoxious Christianity themes. I expected a show that involved fancy sparkly somehow-we're-writing-Latin-in-the-air-with-our-fingers in the opener to rely on that really annoying crutch (It is Japan afterall; although I really don't get it), but it's awful. So far there's been at least one scene in each episode where someone just starts spewing stuff about wanting the Lord to grant them power to seek retribution and how glorious he is and a bunch've over stuff - it gets really painful. Especially because you know it's just to pander to people who just see the religion as a fad or something, so it doesn't come off as believable (Thank goodness; anyone who started talking like that I'd immediately want to shoot them in the head to put them out of their misery, because you know they'd have to have a few screws loose), but as something really, really lame. Eh, but overall it seems fun, don't know if I want to buy it though.....
