Countdown to Yoshi Day Episode 26, T-23 hours!

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

It dinged midnight of the 31st, and right away Semagic flashes the “dude, tomorrow is [info]ayarane‘s birthday!” And surely I’ll be getting those automated forum messages (because some places I frequent are a day ahead). :P

Weather widget wavers between calling for rain or lightning on Thursday… Wrath of Tellah much?

Moar details re: House Ayarane end of Yoshi Day stuff:
– Cake: half-sheet, chocolate buttercream, will be ready on Thursday at 2pm
– …which also implies that my brother may be coming over instead of him kidnapping me for the day. I’ll have to bother him when I log into WoW later today and find out what’s happening >_>;
– ThinkGeek order is also supposed to arrive on Thursday. I WILL HAVE MY FUNNY HAT.
– How to Train Your Dragon… I must see this movie (because my late-night overlord Craig Ferguson is in it, for one thing >:D)

On stuff not related to Yoshi Day…

Happy birthday to Maaya Sakamoto, the JP voice of Aura (.hack) and Lightning (FFXIII), to name a couple. Check that Wikipedia entry, particularly the listing of American movies that she’s worked on the Japanese dub for. XD (I want to watch Land Before Time in Japanese now….)

Countdown to Yoshi Day Episode 26, T-4d

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

The weather widget predicts rain on Thursday. :O
Whether or not that will actually happen is anyone’s guess, given that it’s been quite windy the past few days. Still… o_o

It seems the theme of this year’s Yoshi Day is chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate pancakes, supposedly the best milk chocolate candy EVER… I already like this. Only way this gets better is if ThinkGeek starts selling chocolate soap. (What? They already sell caffeinated soap… and I think they even stock BACON-scented soap!)

Speaking of ThinkGeek…
If the timing is right, I’ll be wearing this funny hat on 4/1. That’s right… the ThinkGeek version of the Majestic Goat. Well, minus the ears, anyway.
You know who else does funny hats? :D

Semi-related: I may be seeing How to Train Your Dragon this week. If so, it’d probably be on mother’s side of Yoshi Day shenanigans.

Truthfully, though… the best part about 4/1 is that I will be, at least for a day, spared from that awful CACOPHONY OF WOOF and all the pointless yelling and such that goes with it. (Inversely, this also means I’ll be away from my big orange purrbot. Boo.)

And now I go play some more FFXIII. Wee~

Countdown to Yoshi Day Episode 26, T-8d

Silly internet dood, “April Fools Day?” What is this day you speak of? Something about pranks and lulz? That does not exist on this part of the internets. >_>;

No, we call it “Yoshi Day,” in celebration of things that are nerdy and awesome. (And me.)
I promise I’m not trolling for loot. (that reminds me, I need to go put in my next ThinkGeek order…) I just needed an excuse to boo April Fools because it is so much fail and Yoshi Day rolls off the tongue better.

Besides, other things happened on 4/1 in history, too. Taking a sample of things that happened in recent history…
– 4/1/1954: The US Air Force Academy is authorized for creation in Colorado
– 4/1/1976: Apple Computer is established
– 4/1/1981: Russia adopts Daylight Savings
– 4/1/1997: The Hale-Bopp Comet!
– 4/1/2001: The Netherlands becomes the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage
– 4/1/2004: Google launches Gmail, people call it suspect BECAUSE it launched on April Fools

And I’m not the only one blessed cursed with an April Fools birthday either! These other doods you might have heard of are also 4/1 babies:
– 4/1/1953: Barry Sonnenfeld (director: Men in Black)
– 4/1/1961: Susan Boyle (Britain’s Got Talent)
– 4/1/1971: Method Man
– 4/1/1976: Rachel Maddow (:D :D :D)
– 4/1/1977: Jon Gosselin (minus Kate… or 8…)

Finally, did you also know that 4/1 is also Edible Books Day?

Locally, some details are starting to get out…
It involves chocolate cake and iTunes (because I am an iTard– not for music because what I like tends to not exist on iTunes, but for apps).
But I think bro may have called dibs on any major stuff on 4/1, so if [info]brendala wishes to play the “I can has a Yoshi?” card on that specific day, she and Robert are going to have to flip a coin over it. :P (A lightsaber duel is fine too!)

What a long trip it’s been.

*needs to make a happier “I see what you did there” icon*

Originally it was going to be “go to IHOP with mother, then get ninja’d by siblings for Best Buy raiding and slacking for rest of day” but mother slept in. What actually happened was “go to IHOP with sister, go back to other house and ninja Robert, and… wait, I know this route, this is how one gets to Fry’s! o_o;;;;”

Robert had never been to Fry’s before and only knew about it second-hand as being “Best Buy on steroids,” so when he actually went in he was all “:O”. You will be able to get a safe alternative to pure You should see results in less than 2 weeks.

The car ride both ways was actually the best part about the whole thing, since there was much silly even though much of it sailed over my head because I don’t watch a whole lot of “normal” prime-time TV. :P

So, uh, now I have a LG-series Blu-Ray drive and a 1TB drive. Must obtain case, PSU and OS and then I’m good…


Chocolate chip pancakes = ohgod so freaking tasty just as they were 12 years ago.
And yes this post took 6 hours to write since I kept falling asleep. :P

Halp I’m being ninja’d

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Details are being leaked a bit at a time.

IHOP for breakfast (because goddamn I want chocolate chip pancakes)
tech loot (Blu-Ray drive and terabyte drive)

and, uh, apparently I am being snatched by my sister after she gets off work for a little joyride? O_O

If mother’s not up by around 11, perhaps I should wake her…
