Gintoki: Well, I suppose I’m doing something odd, like jogging or taking a walk or something like that.
Katsura: That’s fine then.
Another Gintama quote. :P Hi! I feel kind of like a zombie today. x_X I had a heard time getting to sleep, and then when I did I woke up really late. Head feels a bit numb too. So, I'm feeling kind of weird.
I forgot to say yesterday that there's someone named Isaac who visits our congregation every summer. He came yesterday with his wife, Naomi, to the service. They're apparently from Tokyo. It was cool when they decided to sit behind us, I could hear them speaking in Japanese. I heard things like 'she looks like she's 20 something'. It was funny, I don't think they knew that I was learning the language and understood a little. Isaac had talked to my mom the week before and told her there's about 500 Jews in Tokyo. That's kind of cool! Maybe if I live there, I can find other Jews. ;D I couldn't really talk to them, because as soon as the service ended, they ran out the door. :(
We saw Benjamin Button yesterday. It was better than I thought. It was pretty funny at times. Of course, it was kind of sad at the end of the movie.
Since I was so angry about Syfy dropping Primeval, I watched the first episode they dropped. It was one of best episodes, I think. This time there was a mammoth loose on the highway. Later, they had a future 'predator' that was being manipulated by someone who had sabotaged the company. This predator looked a lot like some of the video game monsters I've seen, probably where they got the idea from. This predator was let loose in the ARC building without Lester's knowledge. (Lester is the guy who looks over the operation of researching the anomolies.) The mammoth rescued him by killing the predator. Eventually the main group was captured by the saboteurs. These people had been secretly rounding up all the prehistoric and future animals they could find. The episode with showing the multitude of animals they collected. It was interesting. :P
I played a new game called Regrowth. It was very creative. It's about a seed that wants to 'regrow' his world and save it. Each seed that he ends up growing does something different. One plant shoots fire, another grows a long vine for him to get to a higher place, etc. Also, you help complete a couple of tasks that make people happy. It's about a 10 minute long game. I ended up using the walkthrough, though. It's on Flash Ninja Clan.
Tomorrow is National S'mores Day. XD I love S'mores! They're so good! Who doesn't like marshmellows and chocolate sandwiched in Graham crackers? Plus, I like roasting the marshmellows until they catch on fire. Some people think I'm crazy when I take it out of the camp fire and it looks like a fireball. I think it's awesome. Plus, I love the char on the outside and when it still has the gooeyness in the middle.

Really interesting. I think the last time I did that quiz I spoke Dixie, not general. But, it's still up there. (I'm a weird combo being born in Kentucky, growing up in Washington, having New York and New Jersey relatives. I've picked up on the way how everybody talks.)
