Happy Birthday, aefallen


May your heart be light even as the days grow short and dark,
May the warmth of friendships buffer you from winter's chill,
And may you love life as deeply, as boundlessly and as dearly
As you are loved.

Happy Birthday to Me ~

Have not LJed in months... so shall make a super long entry to compensate...

another time XP

Just thought i should make an entry since today - looks at clock - okay, yesterday was my 20th birthday. Farewell teenage years. eheh. Am actually supposed to be studying for an evil OOS (Object Oriented Systems) quiz that i have tomo - today. Had been attempting to study for much of birthday, after returning from lunch. Sis bought me a watch when we were at PS for lunch... quite pretty; face is a sort of a curved rectangle and flashes between a deep purple-blue and a flower of the same hue. Is rather big even after several of the links were removed, but is alright. More comfortable, i guess ^^; Psychoboy promised me a birthday pic, albeit a delayed one XP Can't wait to see ranchelle's either *grin* Got a few online birthday greetings from friends and a couple of present unimates.

Doesn't feel like a proper birthday ^^; Oh well, at least it wasn't spent doodling in a bowling alley this year, like on my 17th. *pauses* Actually, maybe that'd have been better than what i did this year ~_~ At least got to chat with nescienx, arrch and ranchelle today, and with aefallen for a bit the day before. Wish that i could've actually met up in person, but... *wistful smile* Net is better than nothing.

i suppose.

Second day of school, and i've homework. Due this evening, latest. Yay.

Inane Facts for the Day
(a.k.a.: i'm braindead, and should be doing work instead)
1. There's a bridge (now a pedestrian bridge, i believe) near the former immigration building around where Victoria Concert Hall is that has/had a sign saying something to the effect of "No cows allowed on bridge". - information courtesy of my dad

2. Pears - at least the American varieties - are almost all winter fruits. (Maybe this is common knowledge, but i always thought they were summer or autumn fruits ^^;)

3. M&S' 2003 Christmas slogan (in S'pore, at least), "Magic & Sparkle", has the exact same number of letters as the brand name itself. And each of the words in the slogan start with the same two letters as the names "Marks" and "Spenser" respectively.

Year in Review, and other Mental Spewings

First day back at school... Class wasn't too bad; Business, Government and Society, today. Seems a bit GPish. Might have enjoyed it more if not for my horrible timetable - class on Mon is from 3.30-6.45pm. i hate my timetable =_=

But enough griping (for now >=P) Inspired by an entry off arrch's page...

Last random ramble... After complaining to ranchelle the other day that my Poetry Muse had abandoned me (again), he must have felt guilty. Sent me short poem idea today. Partially inspired a phrase i thought of while replying to an entry nescienx made recently, which PM took and ran away with, and twisted to his own fancy. As usual.

Happy New Year, all ^_^

Fan-tasia 2003

Went for my first convention yesterday! Was certainly... eventful.

Went in at 10+ to set up with nescienx and met kannazuki on the walk to our booth. She looked cool in her costume ^_^ *sheepish* Don't know who she was cosplaying as, though. Saw ranchelle too, on the way to the booth, dressed as the Fool! ^__^ Was amazed that the costume was completed in only 2.5 days @_@ Only other thing that the costume needed was a Fitz ;) Met nescienx's friend zephyus, whose costume was Awesome. Effect of her fantastic arm attachment was somewhat spoiled by the mini candy cane nescienx affixed to it, though *grin*

Got to meet Kierran, who solemnly observed the convention proceedings from his perch on our table, and graciously sat quietly while various passers-by oogled, squeed and clamoured to take his picture. ^_^ Did not even blink when some called him a her, and wondered if he was naked under the black cloth his mistress had swathed around him. ^-^ He wasn't of course. Accidentally knocked off his hair a few times during the course of the day ^^; Only managed to sell 2 bookmarks and the half page print of Lego (said sale was to a guy, not a fangirl, for anyone interested =P) but then again i hadn't really expected to sell anything, so... =P Lots of lovely costumes (though i didn't know who half were ^^;;), beautiful art, but by far the best part of the whole experiance was the people =) Unfortunately, baka camera battery died half way so could only take a handful of photos >_<

*huggles nescienx for helping me take some of the photos, and wynter_myst for making the skirts for our costumes*

Saw majokai, looking, bloody and leggy. And two guys staring at said legs. Lev was at the stall next to ours, and was dressed as... well, i'm not sure *what* exactly. An angel of some kind, i think? Though i rather agree with those who said he looked like Gandalf the Shiny White minus rebonded hair >=D Did not help that the LotR party didn't have a Gandalf. Had Elrond (sadly, not in Pretty Purple Robes), Galadriel, Lego, Sam and Frodo, Arwen, Eowyn, Boromir, Aragorn (i think) and two Wraiths. Palantir they had was actually a clear plastic Christmas bauble you can buy from Spotlight, which can be opened so you may insert things inside. Their Sam and Frodo were cute, complete with hairy feet and Sam with his cooking pots and pans on his knapsack ^o^ Saw a few Arwens, one in the Dream gown (pretty but way translucent when she stood near windows), one in her Hope gown (blue with silver sleeves) and the last in the Mouringing gown. Saw two Legos, but neither as pretty as kannazuki's. Also spotted some Hogwarts students, Gryffindors and Slytherins in normal school uniforms, and a Quiddich!Draco.

Spent most of the con sitting at our booth, and didn't go watch the performances, which was prbably the main point of attending such conventions ^^; But was content to watch the cosplayers walk by and to chat to friends who came ^_^

*glomps anyasy, la_muerta and the other WCers who came* All together, 3 generations of WCers turned up ^_^ Had the pleasure of introing some of the juniors to one of my seniors. Unfortunately, most of them didn't arrive at the same time, so we couldn't take a group photo. Though did later take one with the two seniors who came, and aefallen. Was great to see all of them again. Also met nescienx's friend Cheryl, also a former TKGian, who came and sat at us at the booth for part of the day (and kindly helped us buy lunch from BK)^_^ Sighted one SMU person, who's in my Java course, at the con as well, though don't think she saw me. Most unexpected meeting was with one of the former Millenium Dreamers ^_^ She was dressed as a chara from Hikaru no Go (sp?) i think, the one with the tall black pointy hat. Exchanged handphone and email adds, and promised to let her know if i'm going for the next con ^_^ Apparently this was her third convention already. Was very pleasant surprise to meet her there; lost touch with the other Dreamers after a while, and of them, she was probably the one i was closest to. Was delighted to see aefallen when she turned up, in her Mia dress as promised for the Professor ;) Blind bat that i am, did not see her until she was standing right in front of the booth table and gave me a hug ^_^; *hugs back* Wish you could've stayed longer, but it was wonderful to get to see you again, even for that while. And *hearts* the placards XDDD

Started feeling ill during the afternoon >_< Probably due to not drinking enough, or because the cheese in the burger had been off. Felt bad for stallmates and friends who came over, as was probably rather bad company ^^; Headache got progressively worse as time wore on. Was good in a sense that i couldn't join la_muerta, nescienx and ranchelle for dinner after the con, for what ensued in the car after i left would most definitely have put you off eating ^^; Suffice to say that was not joking when said i felt nauseous earlier. >_<;;

*hugs aefallen tightly* Because words are inadequate to express my thanks. i hope i didn't distress you >_< It's just... my tearducts seem to take perverse joy in doing the opposite of what i want. Was partially the headache (would have borrowed wynter_myst's friend's sickle to knock myself out, if thought it would have alleviated the ache. Though Kierran probably would not have appreciated a blood bath.) and partly the realisation that that would be the last time i'd see both you and nescienx for the next 6 months. It's silly, i know, especially since we'll all still meet online and on LJ, and i should've made full use of the bit of time we had and enjoyed it instead of going all leaky-eyed, but... *smiles wryly* As another Fool said, i have never been wise. Please don't feel bad on my account. You were fantastic =) Am realising even now that it sounds like i'm fangirling you, but do not care. You are Infinitely Worthy of Fangirling. *holds up your sign* "Excuse me while i fangirl you" *grin* You left them at the booth, so la_muerta, ranchelle, nescienx and i carted them off. i believe Lev ran off with your "Marry me please"... *grins, smirks, eyes Lev and Serry, hums Wedding March*

A bit sad that it's over. Now to Javaing >_> Mid term next Sat, and i haven't been working >_

Mooched from ammonium ^_^

I know very little about some of the people who read my journal. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic or you read my fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "oh, her. she's that weirdo." (ahahahaha...kidding. I say that already.)

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well.

Much love ^_^
