my brother plans to sleep on the plane since we leave so early, but i think i'll be too nervous to sleep.

i joined live journal & dreamwidth; i think

while poking around trying to find the "future automatic post" thing, i found my open-id URL. so i decided to use it at live journal to see if i could get comment at blogs that don't allow anonymous posting (you can't, but it's not anonymous it's open-id!) anyway i have a profile; have listed interests, made a bio & have freinded some people. the link to the profile can be found in my links section down somewhere on the right. so if you are from over there i hope you'll comment & will stay awhile.

quiz: it's its they're there their

You Scored an A

You got 9/10 questions correct.

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.

If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.

As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.

And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

i wish i knew which one i missed

scheduling & a relization

so the schedule is out for the anime-expo & we're trying to pin stuff down. there's a lot of stuff to be announced in regards to the movies that will be shown, so we are trying to keep our plans flexible.
there an origami panel/event (i don't know if that's about doing your own or what) that sounds interesting. "the art of glowsticking" apparently has something to do with dancing while holding glowsticks. "coloring manga w/copic markers" sounds interesting. on the last day there is a convention feedback panel. i'm sure that will be interesting too. if there's a good span of time where we aren't doing anything, we'll try to hit the los angeles county museum of natural history, or whatever it is called.
the realization; we'll be away from the internet for 6 whole days! *eeep* that will be a lot of spam to come back to.

quiz: are you addicted to the internet?

You Are 35% Addicted to the Internet

Internet? Please. You're definitely not geeky enough to be that addicted.

You have a full life off your computer - and the internet is just a small pastime.

changes in plan

we were thinking about going on the tour of paramount studios, but decide it was too far from where we're going to be & too much money ($35 per person)
so we are looking into museums that are near the USC campus where a red mango is. it's with other eateries in a place called the lot, the thing is we're not sure if it's open to the general public. we can't find a phone number for the place, so i guess we'll find out when we go.
also in the way of food, we are looking to hit; california pizza kitchen, fat burger, panda express & maybe quizzno's too. we'll be taking pics of our food & i'll post them here. it will be like joseph mallozzi's blog. LOL!

quiz: do you get enough sleep?

You Sometimes Don't Get Enough Sleep

You're often more tired than you'd like, and you're probably not getting enough quality sleep.

Sleeping a little more could make you a lot more energetic and happy.

Try having a bedtime, keep your bedroom cool, and only eat fruit before bed.

well i knew that

packing is an odd thing. you look in a piece of luggage & think you'll never take that much stuff to fill the space, but put in a couple of things & suddenly that space isn't as big as you thought.
we did a dry-run packing for the trip & it was quite a chore! deciding what goes in the carry-on & what goes in the check-in bag. trying to remember what's allowed & worrying about the weight limits for both. we think we have it all figured out, but will do another dry-run or two in the next couple of weeks to be sure.

five things #84

Five things Sam really liked about being in charge of Atlantis.

1. "the big chair." the chair at sam's desk was great. high back, extra lumbar support, adjustable tilt, upright locking position, a large nylon base for greater stability & hooded double wheel casters for easy movement. it was a thing of beauty.

2. her quarters were bigger than they were at the SGC & she had a view.

3. the meetings couldn't start until she arrived.

4. if there was some project or experiment that sam had an interest in she could assign extra people & resources to it. providing they weren't tied up in other assignments of course.

5. they always set aside a cup of blue jello just for her in the mess hall.

anime convention

yep, little old me is going to an anime convention, anime-expo to be exact.
oy! there's so much to do; get luggage, luggage tags, luggage locks, get the room, airline tickets, event tickets. digital camera (& figure out how to work it) some kind of snacks in case we can't go get food. little bottles for shampoo, a little bag to keep not only that, but mouthwash & stuff in. find out the luggage size & weight limits. what the TSA will & wont allow on the plane.
how people can pack up & fly to caba san somewhere in a week is beyond me.

these entries will be daged with; anime-expo '09, as if there'll be a 2010 or any other year for that matter.
