Seventh Day of Sukkot


Wow! It's ending soon.:wow:Still only ate once under the sukkah. Maybe tonight or tomorrow we'll eat under it? Oh, the dinner plans didn't work out the way I thought they would.:icontinoplz:Oh well. We got a huge frozen lasagna from the market yesterday, and heated it up for dinner. Dad was teaching a class, so since she wasn't here, we could have a cheesy thing. (She hates cheese.:icongermanyplz:) It was so good!:iconchibispainplz:She's missing out! I think tonight I'm heating up the leftover chili mac thing. Tomorrow, might be tacos. So, pretty nice and easy.:iconseychelles-plz:Might do something with the green chili stew we just bought, for Shabbat. I don't know. 

I had 2 appointments today. Wahoo!:iconyaykumajiroplz:They were with my new therapist and psychiatrist. I was seriously debating whether I wanted a therapist again or not.:iconchibilithuaniaplz:But, she helped me a lot and made me feel a lot better today. So, I think I'll keep seeing her.:iconhappychinaplz:I actually was having fun through parts of it. That's kind of different. She has similar interests, and is understanding. Although, she can be a little stubborn when she reads things the wrong way.:iconwtfromanoplz:But, that's only been one time, and after some explaining, she realized it wasn't like she thought. So, she's able to change and come to a better understanding quickly, but I have to give her all the facts I guess.:iconkikuplz:We actually had a pretty deep conversation at one point. It was funny when she said, "So, what your parents are going through, has put a lot of stress and tension on you?" You think?!:iconromanoplz:That's kind of an understatement. It's ok, I guess she was just getting it out there. The psychiatrist appointment was very quick again. Basically, she asked me the regular questions, and ordered more meds for me.

I posted a pic on dA: Turtles Sunbathing Probably not the best of them, but I thought they looked cool. Actually, I thought they were doing something totally different at first.:iconenglandispervyplz:I'm figuring out a name for my new character. Still not sure where she would be from. I base it a lot on that. I started the list of ingredients on the udon package. I should have it done soon.
In O-Parts Hunter, Ball's using an O-part called Ophan to fly them over the desert. Suddenly, a Sand Dinosaur came out of the sand. (Sounds weird.:iconusaplz:) It really looked like a giant whale. Reminded me a bit of dune with the giant worms. That might just be because I'm reading it, too.:iconsleepygreeceplz:Jajamaru got them higher up so it wouldn't hit them. It's not hostile, though. You just have to watch out for its size. The eye itself was bigger than their ship thing.:iconitalyishorrifiedplz:Stea found the #2 and #7 Sephiroth. Raschelle and Hamelle. Jio's group stops at a black market that's full of O-parts and criminals. Ruby only thinks about the O-parts and goes off on her own.:iconchibijapanplz:Cross, out of nowhere, saves her from some of those 'criminals'. Jio, through a misunderstanding, starts fighting Cross. (They're in the pic above.)
In Fairy Tail, Erza somehow got enough strength to take out Aria. So, they defeated Element 4. A group from Phantom finds Reedus and Lucy. They overtook Reedus easily and took Lucy. Loke finds Gajeel, just as he's about to leave with Lucy. He was really powerful, and then all of a sudden, halfway through the fight, he was weak.:iconwtfukplz:One of their wizards who uses mirror magic locked him up in a kaleidoscope mirror. (In pic. Kind of a cool effect.) Once Jose gets Lucy, he tells Fairy Tail his other objective was to wipe them off the face of the Earth.:iconchibichinaplz:Makarov is feeling better, and heading over to help. Mira, Elfman, Gray, and Erza start to fight Jose. While Gajeel is about to kill Lucy, Natsu comes out of nowhere and saves her. 

I drew a better expression and head for the 'Savory' slot. Found a way to make him look like he's drooling. I'll fix his horns and hair tomorrow. Might have him say something like, "Mmm...That was good." or "Can I have some more?" or "This isn't so bad." I don't know which one I'll pick if I do.:iconraivisplz:Then, I'll move to the next slot.

An interesting, yet sad way of looking at programs in your recycling bin:

The many variations of what a Sukkah looks like, and what it is:

Sixth Day of Sukkot


Wahoo! 6th day!:dummy:It was too nasty out to eat lunch out there.:iconwtfromanoplz:So, maybe tomorrow? Mom went to her second treatment of that new chemo. I'm hoping she'll feel at least semi-ok when she comes home.:iconamericasadchibiplz:I have to do a lot more cooking, since she's supposed to stay away from it for at least a week. I'm thinking those leftovers from last week, for tonight. Makes my job very easy.:iconchibisitalyplz:Just have to heat it up. It's kind of like chili mac, only with those wheel-shaped pasta called Rotelle. Might do the chicken popcorn tomorrow? I'm still not sure.:iconchibilithuaniaplz:
I watched another new drama called Ghost Friends, yesterday. It's much better than I thought it would be.:iconchibihungaryplz:It's hilarious, yet has a few serious/emotional moments. It reminds me a lot of Ghost Whisperer, only funnier and maybe better.:iconprussiaplz:After a school bus accident, Asuka was the only survivor. Ever since then she's been seeing ghosts. They all want her to do special favors for them. In order to fulfill some of them, she gets into really weird/embarrassing situations.:iconchibirussiaplz:She works part-time at a jewelry shop called Marge's. She's good friends with the owner. And, later finds out that Marge used to see ghosts too. Asuka realizes she can help ghosts pass on, by finding the real reason they're still around, and resolving it somehow. Her new friend, Kaito, tells her at the end of the episode that he's a ghost. (He's in the pic.) But, what's weird is everybody can see him. The preview hinted that he's more like a zombie?:iconitalyishorrifiedplz:I guess I'll find out. Her 2 dead friends hang around her while she's at school, too. And they pledge to stay until she graduates. She also sees her dead mother while she's at home. Today, I'm thinking of starting Untouchable. It looks interesting. 

I posted a pic on dA: Dragonfly It's not the clearest pic, but I was happy I got him at all. They're fast little buggers. I also developed my character a bit more. She sounds kind of cool in my head. I just to figure out her name, and where she's from. Then, I can get back to chapter 12. Finished the contact info on the udon package. It's not very interesting, so I won't post it.:iconpolandplz:Tomorrow, I'll start the ingredients list.
In Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Nozomu tells his students that he saw another self staring at himself. The girls say isn't that just a doppelganger? His response, "I didn't see another self, another self was watching. It's a Gappeldonger!" He makes up the weirdest things! (And, it doesn't quite make sense.) They make you stop what you're doing, and lose interest in things. Next, was about never ending battles. Examples: Older brother vs younger brother, 1st black presidential candidate vs the 1st female presidential candidate. One of his students says you could be fighting forever once you start a dispute. Like Tom and Jerry, the Middle East, Galactic Empire vs Free Planets Alliance, cats and dogs. Kafuka says if you can make a common enemy, both sides will reconcile.

I started the first slot of the Flavor Meme using Ravel. The first is Ravel's reaction to eating something savory. I did a simple sketch of him, but tomorrow, I'll really draw him. It should be interesting because he wants to be a chef. I'm thinking of having him drool, and have watery eyes as a reaction to this one. Don't know if it will turn out.:iconnorwayunimpressedplz:After that, it's spicy.

deviantART faves: Bloom Molly and Ian- Where's Ian? OC: Intuneric OC: Van'ator Native America APH Celebrate our Culture I did not make these! First, an awesome fanart of Tsukuyo from Gintama. Second, an awesome drawing of just an oc named Molly and a bloody knife. I like dark humor, so I found it funny. I wonder what happened to Ian? The next 2 are by an artist I watch. They're awesome oc's. Fifth, an awesome drawing of America, from Hetalia, dressed up in Native American clothes. It's really cool! They did a very good job. Sixth, is a drawing of various traditional wear from many countries, represented by Hetalia characters. Really awesome! These last 2 were entries in the Hetalia club theme traditional wear. I really love what people come up with for Hetalia themed art. It's really something.

Fifth Day of Sukkot


Wahoo! It's the 5th day!:iconyaykumajiroplz:I ate once under it so far. Hopefully, in the few remaining days, I'll get a chance to do it again.:iconchibicanadaplz:Today started out as a nasty rainy day. But, later it turned really nice and warm. Dad made roasted lamb and potatoes with some vegetables for dinner yesterday. Sounds good, right? Well, the lamb wasn't cooked all the way. In fact, most of it was raw.:iconwtfromanoplz:We ate it kind of to make her feel better. (And, it was great that she cooked.) But, we're all sick today. Oh joy!:iconkikuplz:Mom, I think, got the brunt of it. She's been having a very hard time all day. I haven't been as bad, but I still feel sick to my stomach.:sick:Oh, and early this morning, the smoke detector was beeping because it was low on batteries. I couldn't get to it right away, so it was really annoying.:iconchibienglandplz:

I had a doctor's appointment today. There was a weird thing on my back, and I wanted him to check it out. While we were waiting, the nurse asked if I wanted the flu shot. I got it, and then Mom got one. The doctor looked at my back and said it was just a 'skin tag'. Sounded nasty.:icongermanyplz:He said it was nothing to worry about, but he'll remove it. He told me that it will be the smallest type of surgery I'll ever have. He gave me a shot of novocaine around the area, froze it (I think), and 'snipped' it off. His words not mine. Snipped off sounds really disturbing to me.:iconitalyishorrifiedplz:He bandaged it, and that was it. I do have to watch it, and keep it covered for a bit. Also, I have to have someone help me with the dressing. It was disgusting when I glanced over at the container he put it in.:iconromanoplz:So, I feel poked, prodded, and a bit sick. Go me!:dummy:

I posted a pic: Lizard It's already gotten a fave! I worked a bit more on my new character for the story. Played more Irish tunes. It wasn't too bad. The reason why it probably wasn't stellar was, I had problems getting the ligature in the right spot (the screw's still loose), haven't played for a while, and I felt sick. Got most of the contact info for the udon package translated. 
In Kuroshitsuji, Doll went off to tell Joker about 'Smile' and 'Black'. Will says at some point, "Tomorrow everything will end." Joker tells his 'father' about Smile and Black possibly finding the letter. At first, they think Smile and Black were a part of the Yard. But, his father realizes that the real name of Smile is Ciel, and he's been looking for him. Ciel's feeling better. Soma told Sebastian to be nice and fawn over him. After Ciel wakes up, Sebastian tells him that a butler should think about his master's health first. Then, gives him a ton of food. Ciel starts to freak out. Elizabeth's at the main house, and won't leave until Ciel comes back. Before they go back, they head to the place where Joker and his father live. 
In Letter Bee, there's a letter that the sender (Promesa) doesn't want delivered. It's to Pristis, his fiancee, and it's full of seeds. Seeds that when they hit the air, grow rapidly and bloom. It said that if she will still wait for him, plant the seeds. (She's been waiting for 5 years.) He searches for Lag who's the deliverer. Lag bumps into Garradd. He's trying to marry Pristis in order to get ownership of her land. Garradd makes a feast for Lag, and puts him to sleep. (Sleeping pills in the food.) Then, steals the letter. He goes to Pristis' place and demands she sign over the land, or he'll burn the letter. Promesa, Lag, and Niche arrive just in time. Niche tries to get the letter back, but rips it in half, and the seeds go flying. Resulting in a field of flowers. (In the pic above.) Promesa eventually asks Pristis to marry him again. Then, the flowers spread quickly and the whole area's covered in them. It attracts a lot of travelers. 

I colored Ravel with colored pencils. He looks even cooler.:iconchibihungaryplz:Although, I wanted his skin to look tan, now he's kind of a golden color. It's different, but it's growing on me. I'm going to start the Flavor Meme tomorrow.

I just made fried fish, garlic and olive oil couscous, and peas for dinner. So good! Came out awesome!:iconprussiaplz:
