Discussing Tales of the Abyss with your siblings will give situations like THIS:
me: [discussing Eldrant]
Sibling: You know what Asch and Luke should have done? They should have built a MACHINE GUN.
Me: ... ... ...
Perhaps it is wise to say now that I come from an XBOX family.
Today I was having dinner with my family and my Dad asked what a particular dish was made of, and I... I...
I almost said buusagi. :(((((((( I AM NOT HAPPY. This is as bad as the time I was talking to my housemate about Harrogate (a very cold place up in the north of England where she used to go to school), and I was, "Oh, when you lived in -" VERY LONG PAUSE, because the next word was going to be KETELBURG.
This is also just like the time that Niisan and I were in the computer lab, and I asked her, "Are we going to be able to get -" VERY VERY LONG PAUSE, "... I was going to ask you whether we were going to get to the Abyss on time. I meant Forbidden Planet."
YESTERDAY WAS LOVE, THOUGH. It is good to be among people who are okay with you even if you are more than a bit... obsessed.
Seph-sama: [footballer's name]
Kaasan: I thought you said Tezuka.
Me: I thought you said replica.
Niisan: ... Freud would have a field day with the two of you.
Seph-sama: *looking at menu* ... Every time I see mushrooms, I -
Me: Think of a particular road. I know. Me too.
Seph-sama and me: :D :D :D
THE KING AND THE CLOWN MENTIONS AN ABYSS THREE TIMES, and every time the word appeared THERE WERE THREE PAIRS OF EYES LOOKING MY WAY. ♥
I was asking my MACHINE GUN ABYSS brother for book recommendations, and he was, "R.A. Salvatore", and brought me two books which were called The Promise of the Witch-King
and The Paths of Darkness
, but which I subsequently discovered should have been titled MUCH ADO ABOUT REPLICAS and MY LIFE IN THE ABYSS.
A brief summary of the plot of
MUCH ADO ABOUT REPLICAS, or 'The Promise of the Witch-King'.
Jarlaxle and Entrerei: *destroy a tower*
*NEW TOWER ARISES*
Jarlaxle and Entrerei: ... WHAT, AGAIN. HEY, IT LOOKS JUST THE SAME. OH NO, IT'S A REPLICA.
Stupid people who are the cause of the whole problem: THIS LOOKS LIKE A REPLICA OF THE OTHER TOWER.
Smarter people who have to fix the problem: WELL IT IS
Jarlaxle: *CREATES A MAGICAL
pit in the ground by virtue of magic trick*
Halflings: *FALL INTO SAID PIT*
Halfling leader which did not fall into pit: WHAT IN THE 666 LAYERS OF THE ABYSS IS THIS.
*two suspicious individuals are wearing the same rings*
Jarlaxle: This is suspicious. *inspects individual #1* Hmm. This ring. THE OTHER ONE IS WEARING A REPLICA.
Jarlaxle: *steals Entrerei's original flute, makes replica, substitutes original, doesn't let Entrerei know.*
Entrerei: *plays flute* ... D8... SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE.
Jarlaxle AT THE END OF THE BOOK: *tosses the original back to Entrerei*
Entrerei: D8.... D8... D8.... =_____= The Paths of Darkness
, is about THIS GUY, who was IMPRISONED IN THE ABYSS for six years, and the introduction is all EMO EMO YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE IN THE ABYSS... Everywhere I go I am CONFRONTED by my MEMORIES OF THE ABYSS... The Abyss will NEVER leave me... Cue 8,00000000 flashbacks to MY LIFE IN THE ABYSS.
Also, you discover that Jarlaxle's idea of saying I love you appears to be stealing valuable objects, making replicas out of said originals and giving the replicas to Entrerei.
I was watching Hamlet with my brother, and we were analysing the film. There's the scene where we first see Hamlet, and I was, "Everyone else is wearing red and white. Hamlet stands out because he's the only one dressed all in black, because he is emo." That said, Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet is amazing. It's a four-hour movie, but it's worth it. We've been watching it one disc at a time, 'cause there's so much to absorb. Alan Rickman (!!!!!) and Keanu Reeves also played Hamlet.
And after Hamlet's murder of Polonius, he is in towering rage and confronting his erstwhile friends (who are being used by the King as spies), and he roars: "What replication should be made by the son of a king?"
And today I woke up to find (many thanks to sarah531
! *grin*) that the Spider-man 3 trailer is up
on the official site
I dreamt that Lin and I were in Piccadilly Circus in London, having tea with Ian McKellen. TWO IAN MCKELLENS. There was a nice Ian McKellen (like the way he was when he was having tea in the Da Vinci Code) and a cranky Ian McKellen (who stood up towards the end of my dream and said he was going to get tea, because he could NOT go on with NO TEA). He went off down towards Leicester Square, and I stood up straightaway and said Okay! I'll go get cakes then! and went off in a TOTALLY OPPOSITE direction from him, and walked up Regent Street. I let Lin have alone time with Nice!Ian.
The moral of this story is, never read the Tales of the Abyss English translation before you go to bed. You will end up with dreams like that.
