I went through so many emotions just by watching the TRAILER.

And I'm not even kidding, I GASPED at 0:53.



For the life of me, I did not recognize Glenn Close until her name appeared next to her face. THEN I saw it.

Oh my god. It looks glorious. I know pretty much for a fact that I'll be bawling.

One of the reasons I missed home the most....seeing MIKE!!!
KITTY SPAM PICS!!! :D )

YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS CAT!!!!!! Sweet boooyyyy. Shame he's our neighbors'. :(

Anyway, here's another whisper video. It's pretty bad, the fan turned on halfway through the beginning so it's hard to hear me.....blarg. But there's knitting involved. :3








monalavie: (pinhead)
Aaaand I caved and made my first whisper video. Me reading Christmas Carol (or at least part of it).

And yes, I'm speaking with a British accent when I read it because I have a Voice and Diction class that I need to practice for, so it's atrocious. Lo siento.

Feels strange being home......gotta work on my secret Santa!!!

And thus Olivia conquers her fear of heights!!!

Via a 10 hour lighting strike. Gahhh. Left my dorm at 10 in the morning, got back at 8. IT WAS SO DARK, but I'd never know, I'm not a creature of natural light, muahahahaha.

So....I kind of stumbled upon lily-fox on deviantart.....and I'm completely and shamelessly in love with her Toy Story fanart. And I really really really didn't think I'd be the kind of person to fav-spam artwork of one of my most cherished and sacred childhood movies.

But I am. She is so amazing. There's one picture in particular that I guess caused a lot of heat called "Soft Talking" that got a Daily Deviation a few days ago. I was so in love with it, and I had to show someone, and when I went to pull it up that afternoon, the DD was gone and she had blocked all comments. Now, that was a beautiful piece of work, and I didn't understand why that would happen. But, I'm guessing, with the people on DA and the internet sometimes being what they are, that there was a bit of uproar over the sensuality of the piece. But it was cuddling, people. Come on. Although I guess that makes a testament to the piece - they did look so alive

But it seriously pisses me off that there are people who are so blatantly rude to people who are obviously very very talented and decide to take things in a different direction. I'm terrified enough that I'm going to piss of people I admire, I feel I've already done so a bit on LJ, and I'm still trying with those people, but some are less chummy than others, I guess. Les sigh. Anyway, there's enough nervousness around trying to say something nice and decent and original to someone I love, meanwhile some people find it so EASY to smack talk and be rude and make judgement and just A;SLKDGHA;LSKDFJA;SLDF sometimes I really really hate the internet. The people I know on LJ are a lot different than the people I know on DA....some for better, some for worse. But I guess DA, being very visual, has more opportunity for controversy.

Nonetheless, lily-fox, if you're reading this, I adore you and those darling little expressive dolls.

Alas, I digress.

I should be writing an essay right now. I've got a page down and 4 to BS on Mother Courage and Her Children.

Should I post my Paragon/Renegade Eyes for SLF? I've never posted anything for Shore Leave before........a little terrified.

What do you think?

Was at home for the weekend.

Boredom in my empty room spawned this.

I really want to see how those Cirque du Soleil artists do that amazing make up. GAHHH.

I need to do this again. Theraputic.

Been listening to "Paradise" faaaaarrrr too much. Oh Coldplay.

obnoxious rant )
But anyway, I owe you guys a video. I'm just so stressed and not in the mood to do one right now with my eye make up all smeared. Need to get out for a bit, go see Lion King or something. Ask Zoe if she wants to.

Ja Jestem Jak Bogini. Keep thinking it.

Maybe smut will make me feel better. Yeah. I'll do that.

GEH. Meme.

OMG college is amazing, I've already had an amazing night with my department, and my roommates move in tomorrow morning, so I am writing notes to them.

And of course, I have had no time to make a video, but I want to make one, so I'll do the meme tomorrow in a double video. Won't be too long, but I'm soooooo tired right now. Gah.

Love you all!!! <3
monalavie: (Awesome)
Chapter ONE of life begins.

I'M OFF TO COLLEGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
monalavie: (Default)
POWER'S BACK ON!!!!!

But ohhhh, the sky was so beautiful. Took a bike down at 10 pm after being all angsty and went down to the beach. So pretty. So so pretty.

Got my PS3 to work (knock on wood)!!!!! Dusty old feller needed a cleaning. Never thought I'd say "Oh, it's nice to see the 'CRITICAL MISSION FAILURE' screen....but that means it's working."

Gotta cram all kinds of things into it for the next week before I go on WITHDRAAAAAAAWAL. 

I think next time I make my sorbet, I'll either limit or eliminate completely the chili powder.......bit spicy.

I'm stuck on make up ideas. I want to do something Mass Effect related, but I'm having trouble. Already done Paragon/Renegade eyes. Hum diddly um diddly dum.

I am packed fully. My room feels a little naked. Have to buy tea to have with my roommates, so a run to the tea store tomorrow. New glass mug needed, too, after my glass one shattered. :( It was so pretty.

Few ideas running through my head that I hope to get down on paper. Have Imprinting to finish, as always. Hoping to finish that before school starts.....hmm.

Have my last bellydance class tomorrow. Looooved it. New class starting when school gets in session. I'm excited. Meeting new people, possibly convincing my friend Alif to take classes with me. I told him he'd be the next Jamil who is my long-distance husband whaaat, and he had no idea what that meant, so I showed him.


Deliciousness. Personified. )


Ohhhhh Jamil. I'm marrying you I'm marrying you I'm marrying you. Interviewed him earlier this year, he was so kind and so sweet and so helpful and encouraging. Sets me heart aflutter whenever he likes anything on my facebook page, AH.

Deep infatuation. <3

Ahem. Ah, now I'm all flushed and wuzzy inside. And his accent makes me keel over into a pile of barely recognizable goo. That's RIGHT boy, you keep talking with that Aussie accent and I'll forever be yours.

Tchee. :]

EGH.

Power's out from San Clemente alllll the way down to Tijuana.

Goddamn it, if the apocalypse happens before I get to go to college, I will be very angry at the universe. 


Better go eat my sorbet before it all MELTS.

Mwah! <3

It's apparently National Kiss Day! I give you all a big smooch. <3

Asked on facebook (yes, crucify me) which Mass Effect character I'd like to kiss. I'm the only one who said Mordin. Salarians, all the way!! <3

Ahhh om nom

So my personal trainer worked me within an inch of my life today, encouraging me enough with the phrase "You can rest when you're dead," over and over and over.

So of course, I get home and discover I have four of the most gorgeously ripe mangoes in the fruit bowl. So I made some of this delovely Lime-Chile Mango sorbet, which, I assure you, is forever to die for.

http://rx4foodies.wordpress.com/2011/05/06/lime-chile-mango-sorbet/

Love Hungry Foods Pharmacy. Lovely little recipes.

2 large, ripe mangoes
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon chile powder, plus extra for garnish

I love mine really really full o' zing, so I use about 2-3 tablespoons of the lime juice.

I'm not one for following directions, so I just threw everything in a blender, chilled it,and let it run in me ice-cream maker for about 30 minutes. Nom nom nom nom nom.

Desperately finished packing afterwards, went out for sushi with my friend Anthony, whom I will miss dearly. It's sort of sinking in that I'm leaving in a little over a week. Ahhh.

Salved it with Mass Effect at his house. Determined to finish the whole thing by the time I leave as my FUCKING PS3 won't take too many discs unless I let it sit for 20 or so minutes. Anyone else had this kinda problem? I must switch over to the beautiful world of the XBox. Alas, I have Heavy Rain and Ratchet and Clank that I'd be leaving behind...... :(

Alas.....accidentally hit Anthony in the gentlemen's region when I tossed the game controller to him. Think he's still feeling it. Oops. Well, he wasn't looking. Held his hand out. Still.....yeah. Feel a little bad for that.

I leave you with an amusing video (or at least I thought so) and the Drag Queen name of the day:

Ginger Vitis.










monalavie: (:3)
And a little gloomy. So after I hit the gym, it's Mass Effect or AC Time, curling up with my tea in my little N7 Mug and peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses with Katra. :3 Life is good.

Maybe a little make up today. To brave the storm outside! Huzzah!
