Its been a very long time since I've had cotton candy. I love the stuff though.So, it's good there's a day for it. Almost like eating air. Tasty sugary air.I realized a while back, that you can buy them in tiny bags at grocery stores. But, it probably doesn't 'feel' the same.
Yet again, today's been slightly cool. It doesn't feel like summer!
I thought it'd be good to clip Rosie's nails today. She's been sticking to the carpet, pillows, chairs, etc. She put up quite a fight, but I managed to get most of them.To calm her down afterwards, I brushed her a bit. She loves the brush. Sometimes just likes to chew on it. And I gave her one of those little mice toys she loves so much. She seems to have forgiven me.Plus, I don't hear her sticking to things at the moment.
Iryu Sousa's next episode wasn't up yet, so I watched 2 episodes of Bleach. I'm starting to really like Kon. It's sad he gets treated the way he does. Another shinigami named Renji found Rukia, and planned to execute her for exchanging her powers with a human. Byakuya was with him, and is Rukia's brother. Ishida came in just in time, but was easily taken out. Bought some time for Ichigo to figure out what was going on and try to save her. He was severely injured by the end of the episode, though. I like Renji's sword. Kind of cool that it can change its appearance, and looks pretty lethal. I think when I saw the series up to now back in college, I liked his character too. It seems to me like they're taking forever to lay the 'groundwork' for the story. Still doesn't feel like it's really started, and I'm 16 episodes in. I think I stopped watching at about episode 18. So, I'll see what happens after that too.
In Fairy Tail, Natsu, Lucy, and Happy find the book called Daybreak that the client wanted destroyed. Lucy was a big fan of the author, and begged Natsu to not burn it up. Eventually, after he told her it was their job to follow through, she decided to read it on the spot. Meanwhile, the duke finds them, and orders 2 other mages from a mercenary guild to fight them. Lucy finds out that there's some sort of secret to the book, and tells Natsu that she had to read it somewhere else, and runs out of the room. Happy and the duke follow her. Which leaves just Natsu to fight the 2 powerful mages. I remember this from the anime. But, it's interesting to see it in the original design, and to see how different it might be.
Went to JJ's for dinner. Dad had just gotten a check from Smashwords, for her book. So, it was a nice way to celebrate.I had the onion ring platter, and their sesame encrusted chicken with pineapple and Korean-style BBQ sauce sandwich with fries. Really good stuff!The only problem I had was the bun became extremely soggy towards the end. Also had some iced tea with it. Had an ice cream drumstick with sprinkles back at home for dessert.
While we were still downtown, we headed to the waterfront. Walked and talked along the boardwalk. I haven't seen such a high tide in such a long time. So, it was cool to look over and try to see something like fish. Didn't see any, but it was still cool.
Watched a little of the Men's Finals for gymnastics. Kind of surprising. China won gold, Japan won silver, and Great Britain won bronze. There was a bit of a dispute with Japan's score. So, at first they thought they were off the podium, and then their coach made an inquiry. They discussed the score, and after a while decided to up Japan's score. It was going to be China, Great Britain, and Ukraine. I feel sorry for Ukraine. The US didn't do too well. Felt bad for them too.
While we were talking at JJ's, we both decided I needed a bank account. I haven't had one in about 4 years, I think. Maybe longer.I was with WaMu for a while, and then they merged with Chase, and I think I dropped them around that time.
Also, really need a haircut soon. Done by a stylist, not like having just a simple trim.I wanted to grow my hair out. But, now it's getting to the point where it's easily matted in areas, and it's starting to do something weird at the top of my head.It doesn't look healthy anymore. Its been about 5 or 6 years since I've had a haircut. It will have to be done by someone who knows really curly hair. I want it to still be somewhat long, easier to manage, and look decent. I don't think that'll be hard. Mom always had a problem with me going to have a stylist cut my hair. She said stuff like 'I can do it'. It might feel liberating too.
Also, when I finish my novel, I'll have to seriously think about how to get it out there and sell it. I think I'm pretty close to finishing. So, I might have to get in that mindset soon.It'd be cool if it really sells well. Just motivates me even more!
By the way, I just got an email from OkCupid. It says that my personality's really great, guys want me 'so bad', and that my profile has been approved. I thought it was approved already...Guys would really want me that much?I've felt like I wouldn't be good enough for them, so that was nice to see. Not sure if my personality's THAT great, either.
