First of all, a funny video response to that racist UCLA girl from the other day. The chorus KILLS me as does this line: 'It's alright, Alexandra. I know you know nothing about tsunamis. I just want to make sure you know that it's not a type of sushi.' ♥

And here's an awesome video of Saturn using real pictures and not CGI.

I hung out with my friend today. Thankfully not until later in the afternoon so I could sleep in a bit. I read some of Fragile Things while she had her MRI. It was nice to get out though and I felt hungry enough to eat and enjoy some really good Chinese food. I also got a cupcake/cake holder/carrier thingy so I can transport my goodies a lot more easily now. Next thing I get will be a stand mixer because it would make my life a little easier and I could finally make my own frosting! Too bad they cost so much. At least it'll be something of an investment towards my future. I resisted buying nail polish at Sephora though so yay me ;)

I got a letter from the unemployment people and I have a phone interview scheduled for the 28th of this month. I hate that crap. I just feel all awkward talking on the phone and even though I'm not lying about anything, I still feel guilty for some reason. I'm just trying for the hell of it while I look around and look into maybe school. I'm not expecting anything really.

I don't really have any plans for tomorrow, or today I guess. I don't drink but my friends do so that kind of rules out a lot. I need to clean my room, paint my nails, I don't know. Friday I'm going out though. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's movie, Paul, comes out and I'm seeing it even if I have to go alone. Which I will be. Sunday though we're supposed to see my friend because her birthday is today but she's busy.

Oh! Does anyone have the audiobook of Good Omens that they could upload to Megaupload for me? I'm still kind of scared of Mediafire.

So, while people in Japan, going through such terrible times, are being nice and showing compassion to each other, this is what people are seeing right now about America - 'UCLA Girl is going on a rant about how Asians talk on the phone in the library, Japan's Tsunami, and the "problem" of hordes of Asian people.'

I just don't have any words. She is a moron. A racist, arrogant, attention whore. I almost don't even want to share the link because I don't want her to get even more attention.

Another TERRIFYING tsunami video. A whole city/town just swept away in the water. The people watching as their homes and lives are being destroyed right in front of their eyes. I don't even want to think about any people or animals still there when it happened.

In less depressing news, I finally have corned beef and soda bread. I'm ready for St. Paddy's day now. More accurately, I'm ready for some reuben sandwiches now. *DROOL*

I'm offering icons over at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. Click the picture for my thread/offer :)



I'm also planning on going to Jtown tomorrow and picking up some candy and treats to make a little package to auction off. I'll post a link to that later.

This 1st person video of the tsunami is terrifying. At first I was like, okay some water. But not a moment later I actually yelled 'Holy shit!' at my computer. I'm scared and I'm not even over there. Jesus. One thing I'm actually 'grateful' for, given the circumstances, is that so many people in Japan were able to film what happened. It's so easy to forget just how serious this kind of tragedy is when it's so far away from you. But so many people filming and sharing their experiences have really helped bring this event into our own homes. Our own lives. It shouldn't have to be that way, but unfortunately, for many it is.

Also, thank you [livejournal.com profile] midnightwhisper for buying the Help Japan v-gift and for sending it to me

The news about Japan just keeps getting worse D:

[9:54 p.m. ET, 11:54 a.m. Tokyo] A meltdown may have occurred at at least one nuclear power reactor in Japan, the country's chief cabinet secretary, Yukio Edano, said Sunday.

He also said that authorities are concerned over the possibility of another meltdown at a second reactor.


Also a good place for news: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12724953

Videos like the one below are so mind boggling. You can see the ground swaying back and forth and the water underneath coming through. You can hear the waves on what used to be solid land.



If you are able, give what you can to places like:

* Red Cross
* [livejournal.com profile] help_japan (I'm thinking of offering icons or something. I always feel weird, like my stuff isn't worth money, but I'd like to help anyway I can)
* Lady Gaga has Japan Earthquake Relief Wristbands. They're only $5 and "Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this "We Pray For Japan" wristband! Choose your price to add an additional donation with your wristband. All proceeds go directly to Japan relief efforts."
* Groupon
* Japan Society (which also has links on how to find and contact people in Japan)

Watching CNN right now because an 8.9 earthquake and tsunami has hit Japan D:

Tsunami warnings in other countries. If you know anyone there, call them. Let them know. They might still be asleep and not know what's going on. Also, if you're in Hawaii or know anyone there, you can go here (http://www.scd.hawaii.gov/) and type in an address to see if you need to evacuate.

One of these days I'll finish my advent calender ;)


I stayed up last night so I could listen to Mazza and Kazza live on the radio, playing some of their favorite tracks from this year. These were their choices... )

While waiting for their show, I watched Van Gogh: Painted with Words and proceeded to cry my eyes out. Take Vincent's story, in his own words, performed by Benedict Cumberbatch and you have one of the most heartbreaking things you've ever seen.

Charlie and the Doctor's Badger - Doctor Who Confidential - I LOVE THEM ALL A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT <3

Matt Smith was on "The Graham Norton Show" where we saw that he was wearing nail polish. My head!canon is that Karen painted his nails for him because that would make me RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY ♥_♥



I got to open one of my presents today and I got these two shirts XD

Also, just wanted to say that I've gotten cards from [livejournal.com profile] natacup82, [livejournal.com profile] fenellaevangela, [livejournal.com profile] justbolognese, [livejournal.com profile] kimberlyfdr, and [livejournal.com profile] beetle_breath. THANK YOU <3
