I went on an ~epic ~roadtrip with [livejournal.com profile] lilie_charlotte (M) last week to Canada's east coast. We hit three provinces in nine days, attempted to sing along to Korean pop (trololol), took a bajillion photos, got lost, got stuck in a ditch in the middle of nowhere at night, went to a police station, ate a McLobster, and Other Things.

Thank goodness M's cell phone has better reception than mine because we relied on its gps for the entire trip. My phone's reception failed as soon as we got out of range of the bigger cities. /o\ I think we would've been a lot tenser if we were driving around the countryside with no cell reception on either of our phones! M kindly chauffeured me around because I can't drive. ;) I also can't navigate all that well (HOW DO HIGHWAYS WORK a;sldkfjsdlfjLOOPS) and have a tendency to fall asleep in moving vehicles -- it's quite mentally tiring to stay awake and keep an eye out on the road + Google maps on a teeny iPhone screen. XD;;

Details and photos under the cut!

epic rocks! epic lighthouses! epic ocean! )

We had expected this trip to be more relaxing than our UK and NYC trips. We were planning to sit on the beach and read; I downloaded a bunch of fics and podfics to read and listen to. That didn't happen. XD There wasn't even any time for me to nap!

Also, I was dumb and left my cell phone charger at the last B&B we stopped at. Thankfully, the owners said they'd mail it back to me. ^^;; In the meantime, I've connected my Android phone with my mom's Blackberry Playbook cable to the iPhone charger that I stoleacquired from my dad.

THE END. (this post took forever to write. I'm going to bed now. \o\ I feel like I could sleep for a week!)

It was a beautiful day today, so my mom and I went hiking around the botanical gardens and the lake. :) The thing about cherry blossoms is...well, they're definitely pretty, but there are so many bees around them! I could hear them buzzing as I stood underneath the trees, and I'd always figured that my fear of bugs was just a thing and not a phobia -- but as I stood there, waiting for my mom to take her photos, I started feeling panicked and even started hyperventilating slightly. I guess my fear is a full-out phobia after all. /o\ But, er, other than that, it was a lovely hike. ;;;

1.

There's something about the end of the winter holidays that makes me want to take up knitting. XD So I've started up again, with the help of my mom (I swear, every time she sighs and takes the knitting from me to fix it/examine the problem/double-check, I'm sure she's thinking, "Y U SO DUMB, CHILD /o\" She denies it, but I know better). I still don't know which one's a purl and which one's a knit, but whatevs, this pattern seems to be working for me. :> I have too many scarves so this is going to be a bag! Exciting!

2. Photos from NYC in the cut below (not a lot of photos this time, for two main reason: 1) it was too cold to constantly dig out my camera! & 2) my camera doesn't do well at night or indoors, so the pictures didn't turn out all that well)

+7 )

3. There is no third point. Oh, wait, yes there is. New SPN tonight! I think it's about a hooker, or babysitting, or both (or maybe it's about Alec's One True Love crossovering and turning into a monster hooker, idk). I would rather it be about a ~unicorn~.

...except for when I fly across time zones. That's kind of like time traveling too. :]

Anyway, here, my favourite tree ever:



So, remember when I was all, "I'm going to go hiking! But not get lost!" -- well...at least we didn't get lost this time...

~epic hiking adventure~ )

Also, I don't know why it didn't occur to me until two weeks ago that I could just blend a bunch of boiled vegetables & potatoes/yams/etc together and then it ~magically becomes soup. I'd clearly thought about blending vegetables together when I first bought my mini-blender -- but even at that time, I was thinking about raw vegetables. I have been making soup for every other meal and pretty much blending anything/everything I have in the fridge. :>

I got back from my trip to the UK with [livejournal.com profile] lilie_charlotte on Friday and spent most of the weekend in a haze (ignoring my school email account, catching up on fic and LJ, sleeping and eating). It was a fun but hectic two weeks, and my vacation time is pretty much over, sadly.

This trip was my first time in Europe, my first time planning a trip without the input (or monetary assistance XD) of my parents, and my first time travelling with a friend. Our days were pretty much jam-packed and between the two of us, we took probably around 3000 photos. We somehow managed to get lost in every city we went to, even with the aid of an iPad (though, to be fair, Google Maps didn't work without wifi and the maps we'd downloaded weren't terribly detailed. ...and also, we're kind of directionally challenged ;;;), so there was a lot of: "We have to turn left here" and "No, dude, we totally need to turn right" and "WTF HOW ARE WE LOST AGAIN".

More details and photos (thumbnails; click to enlarge) under the cut!

epic lakes! epic sheep! epic pile of rocks! )

fishpatrol: (while they're dreaming)
+ Yesterday, my mom and I almost got lost in the woods during our hike. We took a couple of wrong turns and it was approaching 6pm (thankfully, sunset isn't until around 7pm) and we left my dad at the main park (and none of us were carrying cell phones) and I was starving (and of course the snacks were with my dad) -- but on the plus side, we got some great photos (and a good workout ;)).



+8 )

+ In other news, I bought this drape/wrap sweater and I don't know how to wear it. ;;; Do I just let the long bits hang? The front bits are much too thick to tie together.

+ Happy Thanksgiving, my fellow Canucks! And now if you'll all excuse me, I'm going to go search for more pie.

1. My friend gave me this really awesome strawberry dangly thing:


'But what is it?' you ask. )

2. Supernatural anime trailer
My shallow side thinks it's a shame that they went for such a harsh style for the art. I wasn't hoping for sparkly eyes and floating flowers or anything, but characters in shounen anime can still be pretty! *eyes Prince of Tennis* (or even Eyeshield21! or Whistle! the list goes on!) Yeah, yeah, I'm one of those people who think Dean should look like a bishounen. But even if you don't agree with me on that point, you have to agree that this is a terrible design for John Winchester (Mary looks pretty good, if a bit on the young side -- especially compared to John!). Complaints aside, though, I'm still looking forward to the anime. ;)

3. I'm going to go gorge myself on extra-butter popcorn now. I have a feeling my stomach won't thank me when it gets coated in a thick layer of buttery oil. Mmm, buttery oil. :>

Because [livejournal.com profile] scorpiod1 told me to do it:

Post a fandom of mine and I'll fill out the little formy thing below.

♥ OTPs:
♥ Canon Ships:
♥ DNW Ships:
♥ Guilty Pleasure Ships:
♥ Frysquint and Ponder Ships:
♥ Crack Ships:
♥ Non-Ships that Everyone Else Ships:


What the heck is frysquinting? Also, note that I have distinct shipping patterns and am generally predictable, with next-to-none cracky crack ships. XD;;

Fandoms that are fair game: Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, The Big Bang Theory, Community, Merlin, White Collar, Psych, Leverage, Chuck, Glee, Friends, Harry Potter, Super Junior, Prince of Tennis, Fullmetal Alchemist, Ouran Host Club, Kyou Kara Maou, and probably another handful of anime fandoms that I'm forgetting (oh, 2-D fandoms, it's been a long time!).

If this definition of addiction makes it into DSM-V, then all of us would be diagnosed with internet addiction. Of this, I am certain. XD

1. Upstairs!opera-singer-wannabe? Please stop singing. :( (Or at least have the decency to use a music room that are apparently available in the building?) You sound like a 鬼. D:

2. My bamboos, Bruno and Boots, were teeny when I first bought them. And then they grew a bit. And look at them now! :D

\o/ )

3. This is my lovely cheat sheet that I made for my stats midterm (there's a back side, too). I didn't even get to use half of the stuff I recorded, but that's probably a good thing because I really didn't understand the proofs we did in class.

4. Vid rec! SPN, Wincest, awesome use of show footage, and just kind of breathtakingly beautiful. Also, some of the most gorgeous shots of Dean. *___* Link: here.

5. I'm not much of a fan of Genevieve Cortese's acting, but she's kind of adorable-like in her I-don't-have-a-Twitter vid. Speaking of Genevieve, did she and Jared get married already? I recall a rumour of a February wedding...

6. I'm surprised at how often people confused "loose" for "lose". I just finished reading a Sam/Dean fic that was quite well-written except for the fact that the author didn't seem realize that "lose" (losing, loser) was a word and consistently used "loose" (loosing, looser) instead. My surprise mostly stems from the fact that "lose" (and its variations -- "loser", especially) appears to be the more commonly used word -- and plus, everyone knows how to spell "lost" correctly, right?

7. The Psych-out from 4x14: oh, Lassiter, you are too sexy for your gun. ♥

eta 8. I know I'll forget to mention it when the day comes (because I do every year), but in less than a week, this journal will be three years old. And in less than a month, my old journal (which I do go back periodically to check the flist) will be seven years old. That means I've spent nearly a third of my life in varying states of LJ-addiction. Wow. X3

My mom bought a new super!camera (DSLR) before our trip and left me with what she fondly calls the "dummy" camera (point-and-shoot) -- but hey, it's not the size that matters! ...right?
