Super Random Rants (Dai Ni)

Yes its official! Back by popular demand. The one, the only Super Random Rants. Episode 2!!!! (obvious by the Di Ni part) Hey that actually brings me to my first random rant....

1. Currently I'm in the process of learning Japanese and i must say it SUCKS!!!! My GF (soon to be wife) continues to mock and ridiucle me every time i practice my pronounciation and study my flash cards. (Lucky bastard gets to be born japanese and knows the language from birth) Doesnt she realize what a negative effect that can have on a person trying to learn a new thing??? Currently i'm getting all the easy stuff out of the way. You know the basics like sounds: Ah, Eh, Oo, Ii and (DAMN) well i'll remember it another time and also i'm doing numbers (my personal fav and specialty) and colors and other assorted stuff like that. People say,"Hey, why not do something thats less stressful and doesnt have the potential to kill you?" My response....considering the crap that i'm going through at this moment, this is bliss.....

2. At this exact moment, I am shopping for an AUTHENTIC Johann Santanna NY Mets jersey. I Caps authentic because you have some people trying to pass off replicas and charge authentic price. (the audacity of a few i swear) So yeah i'm looking around for one either XL or XXL (anything bigger will just make me look like a starved child lol) around the price range of maybe 70-80 bucks. Think i can pull it off??? If anything i can just go down the block and talk to a couple of friends and have them get me one from some unknown location (they always say it falls off the back of a truck and i believe them) for like 20-30 bucks. But thats like a last resort type thing....

3. Some of you may know already, but most probably dont. I've currently finished reading a great manga by the name of Ichigo 100%. I know, some of you are like, "Aww crap, he's talking about it again." Well yes i AM and i will continue talking about it. Why you ask? (free publicity???) Because this manga almost completely chronicles my life from the end of middle school through high school. (maybe not the ending but its still all good.) It makes me wonder how my ending wouldve been if I wasnt in my current situation (baby) and was just living a normal life. Well i'll never know now but whatever. I'll actually go more in depth in comparison between those past years of my life and Ichigo 100% in another blog. Now though, its all about the thank you. Many, many thanks to Chaosmaker X (another super huge manga enthusiast like myself) for setting me up with this manga. It made me feel bad considering that this manga is going on 3 years and i just got to it last month, but still i read it, loved it and pushed it into the No.1 spot in my heart manga wise. So once again, Arigatou-Gouzaimasu Chaos-san *respectful bow* (GF is currently pointing and laughing at what i wrote and my spelling. bastard!!!)

4a. For those who dont know, i am an avid hockey fan (played for 6 years/watched for maybe 15) and currently my team, the NY Rangers are leading their quarterfinal series against the hated cross town rivals the New Jersey (crappy) Devils 3 games to 1. I went to the first two games in Jersey and we won decisively in both but i missed the third game due to stupid work and we lost. I went to tonight's game and we also won again to go up 3-1 (Pattern maybe???). Unfortunately i'll be working the next couple so i wont be around to root for my team live. The Rangers, though in my mind dont have a Cup worthy team, still show signs of greatness and I'm enjoying myself watching them make their push to the Cup as would any fan towards their respective team. So now altogether, lets get a collective chant. Lets Go Rangers!!!! Lets Go Rangers!!! *looks around and hears nothing* (whatever, i'll just chant by myself then....bastards!!!)

4b. As aforementioned....i am a former hockey player. (ages 13-18). My position was Left defense and i played more of an enforcer style....well until about 16 when everyone started to grow and i didnt. I mean dont get me wrong, i could still check with the best of them and still stood up for my guys but my presence had dwindled somewhat....ANYWAY, i'm thinking about getting back into the hockey game again. I still havent grown much. I'm currently 6 feet ( yes i said 6. after Gaby said she was 6 i swore to get that extra quarter inch and i did it!!!!) and like maybe 185 pounds. I lost like 10 pounds by working at CC. (i cant have just 1-2 meals a day) So yeah i plan on getting into that one of these days soon.....

5. SUCCESS!!!! I have just found a Johann Santanna AUTHENTIC Size 54 (XXL) black jersey to buy. it has all its patches AND the commemerative 1964-2008 Shea Stadium patch. The price you ask....(200???) a mere 55 BUCKS. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? I know i cant but i jumped on the opportunity and am getting that jersey shipped to my house as we speak. I'm so happy i think i'm gonna do this.... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! (GF points and laughs at me some more.)

6. Today i got paid which means i have my 90 bucks saved for GTA 4. (90???) Yes 90, because i chose to get the special edition with the tote bag and all. I'm telling you, i'm going into that day prepared to take anyone out who even looks at me the wrong way. I'll be in such a defensive mode to protect my game and bag so....i know it doesnt relate to any of you but just as a precautionary reason....if you are in the Tri-state New York area and see a guy around 6 feet tall walking with a GTA 4 tote bag, do not approach him, look at him and his bag too long OR attempt to call him over to you because i swear i will take you down. (He's dead serious wow!!!)

I have a ton more to say but the Japanese chick wants to use my laptop now so i'll take my leave. I realize that these rants werent as random as the first edition but dont worry, the third edition will have more. well....depending on the reception of this one. This is Nica signing off and saying, "THE SPIRITS ARE ALWAYS AMONG US!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" (GF laughs some more.) Anyway, i'm gone. Oyasuminasai!!!!!! *respectfully bows and walks out of blog*

Super Random Rants....

Its like 2 in the morning and i think i'm getting a case of insomnia. Anyway....i dont have anything specific to talk about but for some reason i just felt like writing. I'm just gonna put down whatever comes into my head and go from there. who knows what the topics will be. Currently i'm looking around the room. Ooooh a picture of Card captor Sakura just caught my eye. Oooh first topic....

1. In Card captor Sakura, Mei Lin and Lee were shown as cousins and Meilin had admiration for Lee in the dub. Now in the sub, she wanted to marry him. Interesting huh? This cousin marriage thing is severely looked down upon here in America but i was reading something on Wiki one time that said that the US is actually one of the few countries that looks down on cousin marriage and that its a natural occurance in other countries namely Japan who even allow first cousins to marry. I know, i know, we have been told that children within family lead to defects or something but that has never been proven and is thus considered to be be just a scare tactic and myth. Interesting huh? Wonder what you guys think about that one....

My eyes continue to move....

2. I just saw a Metrocard on one of my tables by my bed. That reminds me. Most of you dont know but on Tuesday i was forced to walk home from work because i somehow de-magnetized my transport card. I got out at 11 pm and had to walk 8 or so miles home from Manhattan to Brooklyn. had to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and everything. anyway long story short, i destroyed a 80 some odd dollar card one day after i bought it, ended up walking home in 20 degree weather over 8 miles (metric people in other countries sorry but i dont feel like converting now) and it took me just over 2 hours. When i got home i was kinda maybe a little irritated and mighta snapped on some people in some forums but they will remain anonymous. For that i apologize.....

Eyes moving....

3. I just quit two dead unions today. Do you guys get the same feeling i do whenever you enter a union where you can tell if its gonna be sucessful or not just based on the first 2-3 days? You know its all downhill but you're like, "Well its my friend and i said i would be there for him/her." So you end up wasting your time trying to help a lost cause. Pisses me off sometimes is all.

4. Three of my other unions felt the wrath of mods and two of them dont seem like they'll recover one bit. (They shall remain anonymous.) I'm hoping that at least 2 of 3 will recover but the one that i see that has potential is my favorite so i'm happy for now. You never realize the significane of a mods presence until the aftermath. You can see the psychological effects their thread deleting, point deducting, user banning actions can have on other members. Me....well it doesnt faze me one bit because....idk but it just doesnt.

5. If you've noticed i've decided to stick with Chibi-Gin for now. I guess he won the competition so thats my "permanent" header for now. (Does that make sense?) Permanent for now lol. Think about that one for a bit....

6. Schools almost over and my bachelor's degree is in my sights (Speech Pathology). My first kid is on the way and....idk, its natural to be a little worried right?

7. I was just told yesterday that i'm in consideration to become one of the Assistant Managers at the Circuit City that i'm part timing at. They say i show confidence, poise, and a general calm, nice disposition around customers. Frankly it doesnt matter to me as long as i remain the top audio guy in the store (My passion for home audio overflows!!!) Wanna hookup a system to your TV then i'm your guy. Home theater in a box, Component reciever systems, they're all handled by me. But hey AM wouldnt be a bad promotion now would it???

eyes continuing to wander.....

OH CRAP!!!! my food is getting cold. I got tons of other stuff to talk about, but for now this will suffice. Pretty random huh??? Feel free to comment. Chibi-Gin commands you!!!!

The real news....

Okay so the message within the message doesnt seem to have been noticed by many UNLESS they did notice and chose not to say anything about it. Well, the hair thing was a huge lie. I would never dare to cover up my Kakashi eye. It looks too damn cool to do that! Anyway, yeah only two sentences were actually true. I WAS just told like two weeks ago that i would be entering fatherhood by like December or November or whatever time it might be. (that would suck to have the kid born around Dec. and then he/she would get like double presents cuz of Christmas) Anyway....what am i hoping for? i dont know....all i know is that if its a girl, her name will be Aya (i flipped a coin and thats what came up.) If its a boy.....well i dont know. I'll let the mom come up with that one. She'll probably pick something Japanese considering that she is Japanese as well (probably Kai or something like that). So thats the news. Soon i'll be leaving this place to enter the "Real" world (i loved that show). Its a good thing that its my last year in college and i'm getting my degree. At least that makes things somewhat easier.....(But what if its twins???) **GASP**

Quick change and some news.....

Okay the time has come to rotate once more. so far i'm getting more positive for Chibi Gin than any other. this is no. 3 and even this one i'm a bit skeptical about. anyway that was the quick change. now for news....

I've decided to change my hairstyle. None of you have ever seen me before but i'll give you a brief description. I'm about 5'12" (not 6 foot) and my hair is just about down to the shoulders. Is that long? Anyway, i've decided to cut it a little and will from now on wear the left side of it over my left eye kinda like Moses from Blood+ in order to cover up my Kakashi eye. As expected the scar is still there and as kick ass as ever, but i wanna cover it for some type of mystery look or something. OH, some of you dont know about my Kakashi eye well check a super long blog i made back in Oct. and you'll know what i'm talking about. It'll be sooooo cool. Oh yeah and another note, i was just told that i'll be getting a kid somewhere around maybe Nov. or Dec. Just thought i'd let you guys know, but more importantly, my hair is gonna be super cool and yet hot at the same time. dont know how its possible but i'll pull it off lol.....

Rotation and a rant....

Alright, i cant decide what header to use so i'm just going through a couple i have. Thats the rotation part. And now for the rant part.....

You know whats been pissing me off lately??? Union invites. I'm getting like 4-5 a day in my box and its really getting to me. Whats worse is that majority of the time, its for stuff i'm not interested in and by people who i've never heard or seen before. There should be some sort of limit on unions or something because its like everyone is starting one all of a sudden and inviting me and what makes it worse is that majority of the time when i get invited, the union already looks dead. You know that feeling you get when you know a union is gonna die before it even starts right? Well i get that about 3-4 times a day. Anyway, you guys, i know you have aspirations to have great unions on GS and try to be the best and all but from now on could you please leave me out of it? If i so choose to join your union, i'll do it on my time. Example: Yesterday i got invited to 3 Bleach unions, 2 General anime unions, 3 sport unions and some RPG union (god knows how that one got there.). I'm just sick of it. Leave me ALONE!!!!!

A milestone....i guess....

So its finally happened. i've completed the first difficult task which is if you havent noticed, crossing the 10K post plateau! its a bit late for the blog but i'm still putting it up. i hear its a heck of an achievement though i never really thought anything of it. 10K posts....to think, i hit that in just under a year, but i've been part of GS since 03. think about how many posts i would have if i was active since i originally joined that autumn day as a junior in high school at the school's library computer. i'd rather not fathom it, since my analytical skills would probably cause me to go into heavy detail and cause a severe migraine or something. anyway, just pointing it out to all those who dont know. so if you choose to, i think a little congrats is in order on my part.....10K

Controversey!!!!!

Ok for those who dont know, there WAS a blog header well.....heading my blog like its supposed to for the first time in like months but due to certain unforseen reasons, it has been removed. Those who've read the previous blog know about the back and forth convo between Shadow and Elite. (Ha i just realized that if you put Shadow and Elite together, you get Shadow Elite, the username of the defender of the header. *Hahahaha*) Sorry got kinda side tracked there for a minute. Anyway....not many know BUT Gaby wasnt the only with opposition to the header. She just happened to be the only one who was "vocal". (dont really know how you can be vocal by typing) Side tracked again sorry. So....i've decided to drop it since i play by democracy standards and amazingly there was more opposition than like by like 1 or 2 people so its gone and i'm searching for a new pic to go up. I've already been given pics to replace with and am currently mulling them over. If anyone cares, share your opinion and possibly a couple of pics for me to decide between so my poor page wont stay naked longer.....

New....well sorta new blog header.....

Its finally over. After weeks and weeks of nakedness, my page finally gets a header again. From the simple beginnings of the Natsume sisters to a cute Naruto/Hinata pic, we now move onto the Espadas, Halibel and Nel. Its nowhere near new and its kinda borrowed from someone else. Thanks to Hotstreak for first posting the pic in Toonami and second thanks to Shadow for modifying it to a point where it wont get either of us banned for using it. Anyway....thats all for now. What da ya think??? Non anime enthusiasts need not bother to post if you know nothing of these two enticing women.....

Pick it for me Part Deux.....

So here it is, my store got a round of pre orders today. each associate in the store gets first dibs on anything that comes in so right off the bat most of the pre orders are gone by now. (in one frickin day) anyway, me being kinda wily and also risking being fired hid 1 of each of the top 3 pre orders in my list in order to choose one. so heres what i hid. 1 GTA 4, 1 DMC4, 1 Soul Calibur 4. these are the last pre orders for like 3-4 weeks so i wanna know which one should i put my money into. GTA,DMC or SC? CHOOSE NOW!!!!!
