That moment when you listen to music at work...

Posted by Unikitty Tekulo , Feb 20 2014 · 185 views
...and your phone is set to shuffle and Hahli Husky and Janus Janus read a Bionicle comic in front of your co-workers, and you are too busy to hit the "next song" button...
Yeah, that is a thing that happened.
Whassat, Billy?  You keep your music on devices the size of a cracker?

New Life Goal

"People just want something to [complain] about because they are insecure about their own positions in life.
I feel kinda bad for them.
Like they could use a hug
Or cupcake
-Me whilst talking to mah bzpeeps.  This is sheer brilliance and I must develop and master this art.  I assume it involves hugging someone from behind and presenting a cupcake into their field of vision as a surprise.  
Also, bzpeeps is now a word.
Whassat, Billy?  You're afraid that if you eat a single cupcake, you'll gain five pounds?

I feel so relieved

So, long story short, I nearly quit my job because of stress. I was used a lot for jobs other than what I applied for, some of which required that I work several hours on a widely varied schedule.  
In fact, we were so short staffed that I worked twelve hours on my birthday and that was pretty much my lowest point as I was consumed with stress about my future because there were so many things I was uncertain about.
However, after a serious talk with my bosses, it looks like I am planned to work a fixed schedule of five straight days a week with two days off every week.  Not only that, but I will be working solely for the job I was hired for once these changes go into effect.
This is actually my ideal of where I want to be in my career in the first place, so I am deeply relieved about these developments.
I feel like it may be a bit early to celebrate, but it looks like I will be sticking around a bit longer.  
Whassat, Billy?  You've still got eight years of grad school and don't have to deal with this stuff yet?

Could use an opinion

So I will be making my own birthday cake this year as per my own wishes.  I wanted to do something LEGO themed again.  The last LEGO themed cake I made was this one here.

So, like that but with less frog face is what I am hoping for.  Anyway, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in me trying any lego theme specifically as there is soooooo much to LEGO and I still have yet to make up my mind.  Just keep in mind that kissing avatars and banners are allowed on this site, but I will be showing this to my folks.  That means no shipping.  >=/
Whassat, Billy?  You don't like cake?
...  Run, Billy.  Run as far away from my lawn as fast as humanly possible...

Thoughts on sports

Posted by Unikitty Tekulo , Feb 02 2014 · 113 views

I think they're boring.  
Instead of getting pumped for a game, I spent today reading and watching Animal Planet.  Say what you will but puppies, penguins, hamsters and kittens playing the puppy bowl is cute.  I like cute.
I have nothing planned for the rest of the day, so I might just keep on reading or maybe I'll watch a movie. 
Whassat, Billy?  You actually know what teams are playing?

Finally it pays off...

to watch this show

I've had that song stuck in my head all day today.  I'm pretty lame, so I like older music from the early to mid 1900's.  This one's pretty lovely in both French and English. 
Also, what I meant by the title:  How I Met Your Mother was a fabulous show... and then it continued to stay on the air... and they didn't do anything original... and the protagonist got waaaaay too annoying for my taste (Dude.  It didn't work with Robin.  LET IT GO,  LET IT GO, TURN AWAY AND SLAM THE DOOR~)
But this episode was pretty fantastic.  I kinda wish they'd switched to the Mother's perspective a few seasons ago. 
Whassat, Billy?  You listen to Dubstep?

The Kindle Fire...

Posted by Unikitty Tekulo , Jan 22 2014 · 86 views
Okay, so I got a Kindle Fire in the mail this morning, and I`ve been testing out for most of the day.  (Day off work, whoo!)
So far everything seems to be running smoothly.  Netflix is fantastic (it is wonderful to be able to point and click to edit subtitle and audio options while the video is running, and it loads really quickly when browsing through the video).
I also got a bluetooth keyboard, which is very tiny.  While it does make me feel like a giant, my cat has so far stepped around the kindle entirely as my hands are taking up all of the walking space on the keyboard.  That is a major bonus in my favor.  XP  Also, it`s short, so it doesn`t look like they will be chewing on the corners of my screen anytime soon.  
Texting on Skype is proving to be a bit of a challenge, though.  That and the apostrophe key is a bit tricky to master as it`s part of a shift function on the k key (I am not used to this happening to a commonly used key).  Also, there is no mouse and it`s kind of blowing my mind away.  The battery life seems to be holding up well.  When I first turned it on it was at 69% and now after an afternoon of activity it has gone down to around 40% which doesn`t seem too shabby.
One of the main reasons I decided to get a tablet was because my laptop has a loose wire which disabled the screen.  I can still use it, but it requires a monitor to be attached, which makes the portability moot.  Also, I had some spending money from the holidays.  The holidays be a dangerous thing.  Ye be warned.
(Wait, I can`t find the key for the squiggley line!  NOOOOOOOOOO!) Tekulo <3

Edit:  Found it!  ~

Initial thoughts on Frozen

Posted by Unikitty Tekulo , Jan 04 2014 · 135 views
Havent seen it yet
I should let you guys know now that I have yet to see this movie.
However, I have heard it is based off of Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Snow Queen."  I happen to have The Complete Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen in my personal library, and I just so happened to have read the story (the tale is actually split into seven short stories which chronicle the adventures of two characters).
You guys, if you like this movie, then read the story.  It is wonderful.  Be aware that I will write a short summary of the story in the next few paragraphs.  As this story is around 200 years old I feel like putting spoiler tags would be a bit redundant (however I will not spoil the ending).
Ye be warned.
The story "The Snow Queen" is about two childhood friends, Kay and Gerda, and how a twist of fate sets them on two separate journeys across the world.  It starts with an ancient mirror crafted by the devil which distorted the reflection of anything that met its path.  Goblins wanted to shine this mirror at the Angels and laugh at their distortions, but on their way into the sky, the mirror is dropped to earth and it shatters into millions of tiny shards.  When these shards get into the eyes of men, their view of the world is distorted and when it reaches the hearts of men, it turns their heart to a block of ice. 
Kay and Gerda are neighbors who are as close as brother and sister.  One day, however, Kay feels his heart and eye sting, and then sees the world distorted.  He sees the flaws of everyone in his town, including Gerda.  The only thing he sees perfection in are snowflakes that fall from the sky.  One winter night, the snowflakes grow larger and larger and form into the Queen of Snow.  During a twist of fate, Kay ends up going with her to her palace to live with her, as he sees her as perfection (read the story because I skipped over tons of great material).  However, since Kay disappeared the townsfolk thought he had drowned in a nearby river.  Gerda, after mourning, finds hope that Kay is not dead and leaves into the world to look for him.  She takes her favorite pair of red shoes and offers them to the river in hopes that the river would return Kay to her.  The shoes wash back to shore, however, and so Gerda decides to throw them into the river from a boat, as she thinks she merely did not throw them in far enough.  Her motion of throwing her shoes sets the boat into the current of the river and Gerda thus is forced into her adventure where she seeks Kay in the great world. 
Gerda has many adventures (read da story!) and actually has many opportunities to settle down and live well-off from her origins in poverty.  However, she only wishes to find her friend, and her determination leads her to the home of the Ice Queen herself. 
While the original story itself is a very heartwarming story of friendship and love, I must say that from the trailers, the premise of Frozen actually seems similar.  The main protagonist seems to resemble Gerda looking for a loved one, I must say the imminent everlasting snow storm is akin to the boat that forces her into beginning her quest.  
This looks promising to me, although I'm not sure where the idea for a Jar-jar snowman came from... 
I've seen a few trailers and a clip from the movie "Let it go."  Elsa seems to be where the idea of Kay from the orignal went as far as I can tell.  While Elsa and the Snow Queen are one and the same in this movie, Elsa was still forced by a twist of fate to leave her home.  You could say that The Snow Queen did steal her away from her family, as she had no control of whether or not she had her powers. 
Other than that, I do see some other elements from the original in the trailers such as the presence of wolves, a dark forest, a reindeer character as a guide (so I assume), and the general presence of magic.  In contrast, it looks like the story has been a bit complicated with the presence of a coronation and a sense of responsibility.  This isn't in itself bad, but it does seem to get away from Hans Christian Andersen's style of writing (a simple idea which may be applied to the life of anyone).
I'm not expecting this film to mirror the original story (hah.  They always butcher the original.  Though, it is pretty butchering, I must admit), although I am interested in seeing how they took the elements of the story and transformed them into something new. 
I must say I am more excited about seeing Frozen (all I had to go on before were trailers with a really annoying snowman and a bunch of hype from people I've never met saying it was the best thing since The Lion King which happened to be on the television.  You know, because television never lies). 
I have heard many positive things about Frozen, however I haven't really met anyone who was as interested in Fairy Tales as I am, so I'm not sure if they have the same expectations as I do.  ^^'  However, I am very much looking forward to seeing the movie... sometime...
Whassat, Billy?  You don't know who Hans Christian Andersen is?
