Swing club meeting went... interestingly. Less than half the people who signed up actually showed up, but we figure that might change in a couple of weeks; additionally, I might end up with a partner I actually want to dance with. Senior!Ben is nice and all, but he's like a million inches taller than me and he's a bit awkward - I feel bad for saying that, since he'll probably get better once he learns, but in the meantime it's just awkward. I'd like to dance with Pinky, since she knows what she's doing and I actually know her (unlike senior!Ben, who I'm honestly only vague acquaintances with), but we'll see how things work out.

I get to write a sestina for AP English! Naturally, my teacher being who she is, everybody had to bring in a box of six words, and for our sestinas we had to pick somebody else's box. I ended up with Pinky's, haha. I think I'm going to try writing a space opera with them 0: I mean, I've got ability, karma, happiness, jealousy, revenge, and enthusiasm to work with; I think I can pull a space opera out of that. I also have to write a villanelle, but I don't know what I want to write it about just yet. (I also have to write an ode, which I already started: Ode to the Strange Red Lamp. Basically, Lelouch Lamperouge. I started it kind of weird, though, like it doesn't know if it's an ode or an elegy. I'll figure it out eventually, I guess.)

I also got back into Neopets after the past couple of months not playing it OTL I think I can make back all the np I spent on codestones by just selling them back; plus I got an extra one opening up the shop wizard so I could price them properly, so that might help too. I will paint Kurounou ghost-coloured, damn it!

GS meeting later tonight; I think I'll just chill for the hour until I have to get ready. Maybe I'll mess around with the starters in Emerald version and start a new game, since I've never actually played Emerald before.

No luck at the library; we asked about volunteering only to be told that the application deadline (which I, funnily enough, never came across in my research) was two days ago. /: So we kind of walked all that way for nothing. Still, we did get in a lot of exercise, and we also got lunch. And my feet don't hurt as badly as they did on Friday! Probably because the shoes I wore today actually fit... yeah.

Kristen seems interested in Other M, so I do think I'll give her my copy. I also helped her out a bit in Metroid... and was shocked at the poor state of her item collection. She had an okay amount of missiles, and she had almost all of the extra bits (though only one unknown item, I think... she's in for a surprise in the endgame), but only two (!) energy tanks! She didn't even have the Varia suit! She'd gone through most of Norfair, was trying to get to Ridley, and she didn't have the Varia suit! She said the guide she was following didn't tell her to do that. I told her to get a better guide (and also, "When a Chozo statue tells you to go somewhere, you're supposed to go there.")

I think I might be going to da's tonight. I can't say I'm looking forward to it... but I might be able to convince mum to take me over to GameStop before that, where I can trade in my games and preorder Other M. Maybe. Probably not, but maybe. (Or maybe I should do it when we go clothes shopping, since I need to stop at Jo-Ann's anyway and there's a GameStop in the same shopping centre.)

Also, yet another person's rejected my offer for a Ghost Paint Brush! This is the second time, and I'm starting to get annoyed. I'm hoping the third time is the charm; this time I checked the seller's profile to see if they'd been on recently, because I'm sick of waiting two weeks and then being rejected. So we'll see how this pans out.

And then I found someone trading their ghost paint brush for 120k, so I made an offer. I'm feeling pretty antsy about it, haha; this is the most expensive thing I've ever bought.

And then I checked the seller's profile, and she hasn't actually been online for like two weeks. So I'm thinking I might have a while to wait before I get the pb... /: Oh well, I need more time to draw anyway.

In other news, mum's not going to be too happy that I missed her collector's item. Well, the game wasn't loading; I couldn't pick it up. At least I was able to do the other things she asked...

Going to the hub tomorrow with twinsies! I haven't done anything with them yet this summer so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm not sure where we should go for lunch, though; even though the hub professes to have lots of shops and restaurants, it really doesn't, or at least not in the part that's supposed to have lots of shops and restaurants. There's kind of a lot around, otherwise; just nowhere I really like eating and that you'd expect three teenagers to eat at. (I should stop thinking like that, since we're all seventeen; we're practically adults. Then again a lot of people look down on young adults, too, so maybe my thinking is justified... :\)

Maybe I'll start my petpage images straight in Photoshop... I'm not quite sure what else I can do right now. (Other than finish reading Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, since I kind of did tell Shiki I'd give it to her... but I'm not finished yet, I'm sure she'll understand.)

Going to the mall with Ani later, I guess. Earlier in the week I would rather have gone to Pacific Commons, but now I'm cool with the mall. Mostly because I doubt he'd follow through on the plan we concocted earlier in the week: that he and I would split the cost of the Birth By Sleep entertainment pack or whatever it's called (it's a long and awkward name, I know that). Basically it's the game bundled with a limited-edition PSP 3000. I think it's just a special colour, though, and there isn't like a design on it or anything. Anyway, it's $200, and Ani said he'd split the cost with me, since this way I'd get a new PSP and he could have my old one. The only thing is, you have to preorder it to get it, and I want to do that at the Pacific Commons store, since that's where I preordered BBS; that way I could just transfer the deposit to the bundle instead of having to cancel it and then go to two different stores to pick up the game and the guide.

Um. But, I don't think that's going to happen, and anyway I really don't need a new PSP, plus if I don't tie up all the money I'll be getting between now and September 7th, I think that means I can actually buy lunch the first week of school... or that I can spend more when I go out with the twins later this week; I forget which one it is.

I feel bad for neglecting my neopets the last couple of days. ): Mostly because Kurou isn't going to farm the last 30k I need to get a paintbrush for him on his own! Once he's painted I think I might start drawing petpage designs for the lot of them. (Actually, that should be "once I buy that second accessory for Kurou I think I might start drawing petpage designs for the lot of them;" I keep forgetting that I'm not done with him, yet. ...ugh, that's another, like, 32k right there.) I should probably play more games to get more cash, but I'm really bad at most of them /: I think I could manage frumball but I'm too lazy to update my shockwave player. (Why is there shockwave and flash? Why can't there just be one? Although... I never update my flash player, either...) Maybe I should try restocking, since I just bought a shop to sell off junk anyway. (And by junk I mean the bottled dark faerie I got from the Wheel of Excitement last week, and the codestone that I got from a random event that I didn't even notice getting. Anyone else would use those on their pets! I'm not anyone else, though.)

Then again, I do want to fill up that old sketchbook... maybe I should draw Aki and Mitsu today. I mean, I still need to draw Simba, too, but... ugh, too lazy. Too lazy to draw, too lazy to Photoshop, just... too lazy.

...maybe I'll see if last night's White Collar is on demand, yet. And if I'm not too lazy maybe I'll make some popcorn to go with it.

I'm feeling better now than I was earlier, which is definitely a good thing. I always find interesting things online when I'm actively searching for distractions; this time I found a new webcomic, Sandra and Woo. And also The Oatmeal. Thought I'd put those out there!

Mum and I went out for dinner at Applebees, once she got home; the service was slow and I think they might have been understaffed, but it was still a pleasant meal. I kind of liked that it was slow; it felt more leisurely. I went to pick up a new sketchbook after that, since I'm still almost through with my current 9"x12", but the art store that used to be over near Applebees was closed. With no warning! |:< And no sign that they'd relocated, or anything; it was just closed. ...so we went to Michael's instead. I did get a new sketchbook there, one made from recycled materials with a cool piece of art on the cover instead of the usual graphic. I also got a new set of inking pens. One day I will stop buying inking pens, but today is not that day. So I felt better after that, and then mum got all annoyed because there were these kids running around being disruptive in the section of store we were in, but she told the cashier, who made an announcement, and then mum felt better after that.

I also drew a piece for the lookup on my main Neopets account; I think I'm getting back into it. I still have to ink it in Photoshop, and colour it, but it should work nicely once it's done. At least, it should work; I can't get my div codes to work properly, which is really starting to bug me. Maybe there's something wrong with my CSS... I'll have to go through it again. /: I'll make it work somehow, I'm sure.
