I hope all the moms out there had a great one! I made banana cranberry pancakes for my mom as a brunch. I made like 18 or 20 of them. It was funny that I actually made so many, and we had leftovers! They were so good!Dad made BBQ chicken, bok choy, and nut pilaf for dinner. Which was very good too! I feel sick to stomach. The feeling started last night while we were watching the new Star Trek movie. I felt immediately like I was going to throw up. Odd, because this is the second time in less than a month and a half. I barely ever throw up, even when I'm sick, so this is a bit bizarre. The movie was pretty good, though. It put a new spin on it, at least I think so. Action packed, had a lot of humor, seemed a bit more 'real', some drama, and other good stuff. Reminded me a bit of Star Wars.
I read the whole Tao Te Ching, plus commentary on Saturday. I didn't think I'd read the whole thing that quickly, let alone in one sitting. It was very interesting. Some of it was funny, some of it was very deep stuff, and a little of it didn't make much sense. I understood it, just seemed very contradictory in a few passages. Next, will be a book on Plato. Should be very interesting!
I also managed to go to services that morning. It felt good, since it's been a while. It was different than before, because I told myself I'm just there for the praying and studying/reading the Torah. I wasn't really trying to come up with a reason why I didn't like going, I just did it. It felt nice that way. Next time, if I feel at the end that Mom's taking a while talking, or nothing's really going on, I'll just read a book. The portion was about the sabbatical year and was very interesting. It's where on the 7th year you take a year off. In the Torah, it's also you stop farming and live off the land, so to speak.
I changed my avatar a bit on Gaia. Changed her hair, and most of her outfit. The only thing, I think, that stayed the same is the chain belt, necklace, the cincher, and bracelet. I wanted her to have a more summer feel. The barrettes are interesting since they're reversible. I can change their color, have just one, and put them in different positions.
I also watched Bambino last night. This time, it seemed Ban was just wallowing in self-pity. Thinking he just wasn't good enough. But, he realized later, that his mistakes were normal for beginners. He accidentally cuts himself trying to cut up a crab, and everyone tells him to go to the hospital, when he says he's fine and he'll continue, one of the workers slaps him.Another says that they're just human and that even they can't be perfect. It was kind of an emotional episode.
DeviantART: Happy Birthday Toshi StupidFox 29 Austria The first, a drawing of a bottle of mayo with a ribbon, and a pic of Toshi's head with a heart around it on the bottle. Toshi's fave food is mayo, very fitting for his birthday. Next, is another funny StupidFox comic, about Betta fish. Lastly, is an awesome sketch of Austria.
Funny Vocaloid vid and song to the Turkish March:
Cool vid about Kamui in the Yoshiwara arc:
An awesome song called I am a Jew. Has all sorts of Israeli singers:
This one's sad at first, but has a much happier end. It doesn't have anime, and the voice is the Miku Vocaloid. The video is very creative, maybe even original:
