Still in Perth. :)

Saw 500 Days of Summer on Friday night. It was fantastic. I wanna see it again but it seems silly. I love Zooey Deschanel, even though Summer was a bit of a bitch, haha.

Anyway now I want to get the soundtrack, and also look into the Smiths a bit.

I'm in Perth, excuse the lack of updates! Probably won't write too much while I'm here, but I'll get back to it when I get back home. Maybz with pictures. :D

I'm still 18!

So far it is a lot of fun, if not very similar to 17. I haven't been out to any 18+ places yet, but I did get asked how old I was today and I got to say I was 18, and that felt very special.

For my birthday I got stuff! :D My sister gave me a book and some chocolates, and my parents gave me another book, a couple of DVDs, a MARIO KEYCHAIN THING THAT MAKES SIX DIFFERENT MARIO NOISES, some earbud headphones, and a GHD STRAIGHTENER. KJHUGYTFGHKJ.

I had to go to college in the morning but I only went for a couple of hours. :| Then off to Gencon!

It was so much fun! If I go again on Sunday or next year I'm going to have to write down the order I do stuff in or something, because I seriously cannot remember what I did today. But I'll try my best. :D

Before we got there my friend had to spend forever setting up her cosplay in the bathroom at college and painting her face and all, but it was totally worth it. She was a bitchin' Harley Quinn (the new Arkham Asylum one, not the old one, but she's done that cosplay too) especially for a costume that wasn't put together too far in advance.

Anyway then we went to Gencon.

First off when we walked in I went straight for the bunch of 360 setups near the entrance and played Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for a bit with one of my friends.

After we got bored of that we milled around a bit, and I bought a little 1up mushroom to hang off my bag because I don't have nearly enough geeky things hanging off it. One of my friends bought a WoW figuring from there and later another friend bought a keyblade. But I got distracted after that because someone told me there was a Left 4 Dead cosplay group around the corner. :O

They were missing a Zoey.

I have the jeans/hoodie/hair for Zoey. :( And I nearly went as Zoey today! I was pissed that I didn't because I would have fit in so well. But I made friends with them regardless! They were good fun people.

The Louis was white, but it's okay, because he spoke all black and held his gun sideways to make up for it. See? It's sideways in that picture.

There was cosplay chess as well!

Snake is in the box!

I also met a very friendly Stormtrooper when I was watching the cosplay chess! :O

I was like "give me thumbs up!" and he did. He talked a few times but I didn't really understand him so I sort of just nodded and took more photos of him.

Me and a few other friends went back to Southbank for lunch at one point. I saw a bunch of ibises trying to eat out of this hot food container and I thought it was the cutest thing so I took about 20 photos.

That picture looks a lot more impressive if you assume that it found the potato gem in the box and ate it, but actually my friend just threw it at him.


Or it was complete until I found him later and got to wear his head and that actually happened two or three times.

Probably the most attractive photo of me that has ever been taken.

The parts of the day that I missed included worrying about how much money I spent, purchasing a hat and probably more that I forgot about, making more convention friends, talking a lot, watching a SSBB tournament, going in a TF2 tournament, and mooooore! Two of the TF2 matches were recorded and they'll be up on LanSmash at some point with narration, so I will link to them then.


So I was on Dailybooth tonight, taking photos of my cool new Gencon stuff, and I saw that one of the guys I was following commented on a picture from this other guy. A thumbnail of the picture they commented on shows up to the left of their comment and it was a barely legal fake-blonde girl with no shirt on and 200 written on her boobs, barely covering the essential parts with her hands.


Notice I said it was a guy's page. For some reason this other girl decided to willingly take a photo of herself topless with 200 written on her boobs so this other guy could upload it to his page when he hit 200 followers? OH, HOW SPECIAL.

I went and checked out the girl's page and it's actually pretty sickening. I went back a few pages and she didn't seem all that bad in the start, it's just like she decided that she wanted to be more famous on the internet so she started losing clothes to get more desperate teenagers to follow her.

It's so fucking ridiculous. But to get the full idea, let me quote some of the comments I made on said picture, and the comments I received in reply.
My original comment:

Probably the most ridiculous picture I've ever seen on Dailybooth. :|

Congratulations on letting the internet know just how skanky you are.
Posted by the guy who uploaded the image:

@panique get a life, get swift covered!
Posted by the girl in the image:

@panique ... Have you not seen the other pictures like this on db?
Please get a life if you enjoy insulting people you dont know?

My reply:

Baww. And no, I haven't seen the other pictures like this on Dailybooth, but honestly the fact that there are ones similar to this disgusts me. How old are you, 16, 17? It's ridiculous for you to be posting topless pictures of yourself on what is basically a social networking site where people as low as 13 years old are allowed to sign up.

The site itself was such a nice idea, and it's sad that people have to go and ruin it like this.
Posted by the guy who uploaded the image:

@panique if you're not happy with the RULES. Don't come ranting here at people because the rules state if you're over 16 you can post anything you like, you don't like it? Block me and move on.
My reply:

It's the internet, I can rant and rave about whatever I want. I don't care what the rules state, I still find it disgusting that there are people so young coming on here and posting pictures of themself in nothing, barely covering themselves up. I don't care if you think differently but I find it a very sad statement on society.
Posted by someone else:

@panique if the first thing you notice about this photo is that she is 'nude' you are dirty. I noticed first her lovely face, then was like, "Oh, her hands are covering her boobs" I don't see that as skanky tho. If it was full frontal nudity, then yes, it would be. Also, this isn't a social networking site, it's more of a photo sharing site.
(this guy totally came back and commented on one of my photos saying I was prettier so he is fully forgiven, because I'm tremendously vain like that)

panique shut up, you're probably if not are a loser cunt.
go get a life.
Posted by me, in reply to the other guy:

You've got to be fucking kidding. Her 'beautiful face' is covered by the majority of her hair, anyway. Stop kidding around.
Oh, and I told the INTERNET WHITE KNIGHT! that she wouldn't sleep with him for defending her. After all, he has a right to know.

Why would I think that you absolute bellend. Listen to yourself, stop using such stupid unoffensive terms like "Internet white knight" to try and sound clever.

Just stating my opinion.. you're a twat. :)
I'm not.. actually sure what he was trying to say? INTERNET WHITE KNIGHT isn't really something I say when I'm trying to sound clever.

Good God.

I don't even know why it bothers me so much. Just the fact that this girl is 17 years old and going around posting topless pictures of herself on the internet. I don't see how any 17-year-old with the slightest bit of dignity could do that. Does she have some sort of desperate need to have people on the internet tell her how beautiful she is (seriously, you guys! Her face! Not just her boobs! Seriously!)?

Some people are so fucking retarded and I don't even know why.

Edit: So I just went back to grab a link for someone and apparently the picture was deleted for some reason. Ha.

Also someone changed my blog password. >:( But it's okay I fixed it.

Will edit later, bedtime haha!

horf blorf

In short I just think he is a toolbag for stealing Taylor Swift's first VMA speech, especially over such a shitty video. Beyonce's video is just some girl's dancing oh boy that's incredible never seen that before jhgtfhjkl. The good thing to come out of it is all of the Kanye West meme pictures. :D But seriously man, poor Taylor Swift was so excited and after Kanye had his little whine she's just standing there all awkwardly unsure of what to do. I actually watched some of the VMAs on MTV earlier today (I missed the start though, so I didn't get to see Best Female Video) and whenever Kanye was up for an award everyone booed. That was pretty cool. Also in turn Beyonce actually won best video so not only does he look like a huge tool, he's also stupid! Yaaaay!


I have been ukulele-ing it up with Joe! Say hi, Joe. I'm still not good and I still can't sing, but my fingertips are all sore and starting to callous so I feel rock and roll. I'm so cool.

I'm tossing up whether to buy a better ukulele or an acoustic guitar. My current ukulele was a real cheapie, and it's sort of twangy and just not the best quality. It's good for learning, though. Otherwise, if I can keep going on my cheap ukulele, I can get myself a small acoustic guitar. My Dad has one, but it's waaaay too big for me to use. I need teeny tiny instruments. When I used to play violin I used a quarter-size and it was adorable. :3 BUT I DIGRESS. Ukulele vs guitar?

Sunday, September 13, 2009
I have had a ukulele since April but was always too shy to record myself. :L I recorded a couple of songs today, they have a few mistakes and I messed up the strumming at some times, but here they are anyway.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark - Death Cab for Cutie.

Marching Bands of Manhattan - Death Cab for Cutie. This one sounds pretty repetitive. I started singing around the second verse but it's really soft, you might not be able to hear it.


I ran through the Elite 4 and Cynthia last night and got the National Dex and PokeRadar. I thought I'd skipped a lot of trainers and would be behind on my Sinnoh Dex, but it wasn't too bad. I had missed a double battle in Eterna Forest that I needed, and since I skipped all the trainers in Hearthome Gym I needed to see the Drifloon at Valley Windworks, but by the time I got to Cynthia I had 148/150, so Garchomp and Spiritomb finished it off.

I caught Heatran and Cresselia earlier today, and once it hits 10pm, I'm going to get Rotom. :3 Heatran took about 16 Ultra Balls, but I just used my Master Ball on Cresselia.

There's been a bunch of new HGSS information since the Japanese release, and consequently, the rom has become available. I know a lot of people who downloaded the rom for it and it really annoys me for some reason, and I'm not even that against piracy or whatever, normally. D:< Just seems really ridiculous to not wait for an English release if you can't read Japanese, or to import the Japanese version and play it if you can. I hate the fact that people are practically brute-forcing their way through the Japanese release when they're just relying on information from other people or sites to understand what's going on, or relying on their memory from playing Gold/Silver/Crystal ten years ago. It isn't that hard to just wait for the game to be released in a language you can understand.


Aside from all that, the information/screenshots that I've seen are pretty interesting. It seems that the Pokedex goes by catching, not seeing, which is kind of annoying. D: I liked how the Sinnoh Dex worked off just seeing Pokemon.

I'm reading the Serebii information thread, and just found this gem:
"I have to take a break, needless to say I threw up on my keyboard a bit

I'm so so sorry for this. I'll catch up as soon as I can"

People aren't going to die if they have to wait for information. There's working quickly through a game to unlock as much new information as you can, and there's ridiculously overloading and apparently forgetting to take your meds and getting sick. Some people are ridiculous.

On a more positive note, only 4 days until my birthday, and 8 days until I go to Perth. :)


I'm still reading the Serebii thread.
"I dunno how much more I can do today. I've been up 38 hours straight, it's starting to take its toll"

Why would you stay up 38 hours straight when you're obviously not enjoying it and probably feeling awful and it's so RIDICULOUS I can't even understand it.

I made some of the colours on the layout darker because it was brought to my attention that they were harder to see on other screens than they were on mine (thank you boy). :< But that should all be fixed now.
I want more links! :D If anyone reads this who has a site/blog of their own, tell me so I can link to you!
What is the big deal with wrapping paper? :| I went shopping tonight for my Mum's birthday tomorrow, with my Dad and my sister. Before we left Dad wanted to buy some wrapping paper to wrap it in (durf hurf what else would we use it for blurf). That was okay but geez man how long do you want to take to pick out some paper? All it's going to be used for is hiding presents, and then they'll get unwrapped and the paper will get thrown out and IT WAS A WASTE OF $6. AND TIME. Seriously, I never really thought about it before but I don't get it, why bother?

I told him to just wrap my stuff in newspaper from now on.

My nail hurts so bad. :( I spent about three collective hours peeling stickers off game cases at work today. It was very mundane. I never realised how much it would make my nail hurt. D: It wasn't so bad at first but since my shift ended it's been hurting and it feels almost bruised, even though it's not. Bitch whine moan.

I love Skype-bots. :D
[11:40:02 PM] berget.hamwey48298733: i'm briannahh from`owwe remember our chat yesterday?
And by love I mean 'generally dislike, but sometimes their messages make me laugh a little'. I feel like I should visit there just so I know what it is.

But I won't.

Even though I should.

I really need more to blog about, most of the time they just end up being whatever is in my head at the time and they're all mismatched and weird.

It's my 18th next week. :D I turn 18 on the Friday. Technically I have college that day, but who wants to be cooped up at college when they're 18? :< I might take the day off to mill around the city and maybe go to Gen Con. I kind of wanted to be a Medic for Gen Con, when I originally planned to actually go, but now I'm going to Perth on the 21st and I don't really want to spend a bunch of money on it anyway. I'll just wait for Supanova.

Partly inspired by a layout I saw looking at Pokemon stuff, partly inspired by Sprinkleberry. *-* Happy 09/09/09! Even though it actually ended here an hour ago and this post will be dated as 10/09/09 anyway. I don't care!

Today, my phone died. :( Last year my phone died around this time last year, and I got a new one for my birthday. It was a Motorola W510 and I remember reading before that they had some problems with the screen. I think it's just the screen that kicked it, because it still vibrates when turning on and the keypad still lights up, but nothing appears on the screen or front panel.

Eh, I guess I have to find an old one to use until whenever I get a new one.

This is going to be a Pokeblog, sorry. ;)

I've been right into Pearl again recently, so about a month ago I traded a few of my Pokemon over to my friend to hold and restarted my game and got them back. I finished Sunyshore Gym yesterday and went through Victory Road mostly today, and got to the Elite 4 this afternoon.

Firstly okay, I am so pissed that you can't heal in-between E4 battles. HP I don't mind so much, I can take care of that using potions, but my Dragonite has terrible PP on his best moves. 14 on Dragon Rush (2 PP Ups), 10 on Aqua Tail, and 10 on Dragon Rage (shut up, I'm replacing it soon, leave me alone).

Secondly, I hate Aaron's Drapion's X-poison, and I hate Dragon Rush's 75 accuracy.

I made this a while ago, and screwed up submitting it and it didn't go through. Found it recently, tweaked it, resubmitted, and now it's up.

Death Cab For Cutie layout!

Much rejoicing to be had!

My program files were all gone, but my pictures/documents/music were intact. :) It was a nice surprise. I'll need to get TF2/Maple off my friends though, because I'll blow my bandwidth again if I redownload them myself.

Anyway once I reinstall CS4 I'll probably make a new layout again because this one is awful.
