Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? Been really busy.
I'll have to keep this brief since my keyboard has suddenly decided to be all weird on me, so here I go!
Almost done with Christmas gift-buying and decorating!
Very happy with that. Just need to get the tree up!
I am going to buckle down ASAP and finish that Oh My Goddess
meme I've been working on forever, as well as some Xmas art for people!
Gonna be very busy, since this is the craziest time of year at work, and we have a literal blackout period of the two weeks for Christmas and New Year's where we can't book time off (it's basically all hands on deck!). But at least we're not open on Christmas and New Years! There are perks!
Might be a white Christmas, might not... but I my new boots are holding out great (knock on wood), so I'm ready for anything. The other day I was walking down the street and I noticed the girl in front of me had the exact same ones!
Now that's funny.
Almost done watching TMNT
(2012) season 2. I saw the season finale on TV a couple months back, but my brother didn't, so we're going to watch together. Then I have to get him to finish watching Avatar: The Last Airbender season 3 so he can watch the first season of Korra, so I can the watch seasons 2 and 3 with him! (I don't watch them online, I'm weird, I know. I got them on DVD instead. No commercials, at least! The only show I watch online is Sailor Moon Crystal
Ahem, back to the TMNT
thing, I gotta say, I just love this new series. I didn't think I would back when it came out due to the CGI animation, but boy am I glad I gave it a shot! My favourite is Donnie. And I just love how Rob Paulsen came back to play him after voicing Raph in the 80s! (I especially liked that throwback at the end of "The Manhattan Project", part 2, where they brought back all the old actors who played them in the 80s.
) But I do have to say, observing some of the shipping wars, especially the ones between the "Apritello" and "Capril" shippers... it reminds me just how... young a lot of this new series fans are.
Not in a bad way, of course, but I do think there are obviously some people who are taking it way
too seriously, like in any fandom. (While personally I lean more towards the "Capril" end of things because of nostalgia and how freakin' adorable they are in this new series, I have nothing against any pairing... [with the exception of "Turtlecest". Not my thing.])
And I keep in mind that Turtles
is a story about butt-kicking ninja action, not shoujo romance, thought romance always plays a part in any good story. Perhaps the wars just stand out to me more since it's not the usual shipping-style show? I dunno.
Anyways, sorry for the ramble. That's my two cents worth. (Or should it be five cents, now that Canada has done away with the penny?
My parents finally watched Frozen
the other night. We all did, together, even the cat. We all crammed into my room since I have the Blu-Ray player (thanks to my brother, an awesome birthday gift!). They weren't disappointed! Oh, and apparently Kristoff is actually my uncle, in cartoon form. I'd never noticed before, but both my parents thought so.
Mom also learned more than she even did before about the Ninja Turtles after we all watched a documentary about the series last night. Apparenly, she had no idea they were brothers, lived in New York, and had a giant rat-man for a master!
... That's about it. I guess I adapted to the freaky keyboard thing faster than I thought.
Safe and Happy Holidays to all, and if you don't celebrate anything, please be safe and have a good time anyways!
