“‘Cause different Doesn’t feel so different And going out is better Then always staying in”

-“Come Clean” by Hillary Duff (my jam when I was younger!)

It’s been raining nonstop lately, and on my way home I discovered that our street had flooded. I went out to check how deep it was (in one of my favorite sundresses, too!) and watched as the water creeped up my calf. Our car got through alright, but I decided to hand out in the rain anyway. I got completely soaked!!! It was fun, though. I had to avoid the (flooded) drainage areas, and the overflowing stream, but I still enjoyed myself. I haven’t played in the rain in years.

(Last year it rained a ton, but I locked myself in my room, glued to my computer. That was about the same time I began this blog, to deal with my loneliness. How far I’ve come in just one year!)

The local Movie Stop downsized, so I went to check out their inventory. (They still have the best selection and price for anime….the  section did not shrink even when the physical store did! yay)

I ended up buying The Secret World of Arrietty and Persepolis. Yesterday, I also grabbed Face/off for dirt cheap, so now my summer movie collection is growing.

I still have Uta-Kata, Juno, the rest of Summer Wars, and a few others ahead in the queue, so I hope I can get to them soon. I’ll be stuck on very long car rides, so I’m going to be catching up on my reading instead.

Yay! I am now officially free for the summer. I celebrated my first few hours of freedom by hitting up downtown for lunch and attending our second annual Hetalia party. (I am starting to enjoy this tradition) Sometime before the end of May I need to record my audition for an anime singing contest, and style my new wigs. My main goal is get my hair dyed pink before I have to go out of town. I plan on dying just and inch or so at the tips.

I don’t have much time before my great big vacation starts, so updates may be sparse. Eeks!

“The flowers you gave me are rotting and still I refuse to throw them away. Some of the bulbs never opened quite fully They might so I’m waiting and staying awake.”
-“The Flowers” by Regina Spektor
I recently ordered two wigs off ebay for my Metrocon cosplays, only to discover that I ordered the wrong color for one wig. I just contacted the seller, hoping to do an exchange. I’m kind of nervous, as this is the first time I’ve ever ordered a wig online, as well as my first experience with ebay.
Otherwise, today was a good day. I went to the local asian market with some friends to buy Ramune, and walked out with pocky, chocolate koalas, chocolate mushrooms, some AKB48 candy (idk honestly, the packaging just looked cute), and a box of chocolate mochi ice cream.
I’m not terribly sure I like the mochi ice cream.
That doesn’t matter, though, because I have chocolate mushrooms, which I used to routinely buy at Border’s until they closed.

Today I wore my new Bodyline dress to school, and got a pretty positive reaction to it. Underclassmen thought it was neat, and some of my anime club friends immediately recognized it as lolita. The only downside was that we had an impromptu lab involving lots of liquids during science, and I had to stand there, extracting DNA in loli. Perfect!

Later, I went to Barnes and Noble to pick up a manga (Durara volume 1) and a woman stopped me as I was paying to compliment me. O(≧▽≦)O Good day.

Haha I’m still not finished typing up my Bodyline review….I haven’t even uploaded my pictures yet. I have tomorrow off, so I hope to have it posted here and on EGL by the weekend. (p.s. my username is matryoshkalilly)

“I wonder if I hear even the songs I listened to as a kid in a whole different way now?” -“Cherry Bon Bon” by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Well, the past couple weeks have been fairly hectic! since the last time I posted, I made several more squiddles, placed my first order with Bodyline (I’ll post a review here and on livejournal when it arrives, which should be any day now), completed a research paper, and managed to fall even deeper into the Homestuck fandom. I sewed half a skirt, and I just need to gather the bottom piece and attach the waist band before I can wear it! But I may never find the time to at this rate.

This saturday I am attending Khaotic Kon, a small anime convention in its first year! Friday is 4/13 (aka Friday the 13th, aka Homestuck Day) but I’m too busy to fully celebrate. What I will do, however, is cosplay as Matryoshka Gumi at the con.

I don’t feel that I’ll be staying at the hotel long enough to warrant full troll makeup, so I decided to go back to my roots and reuse a crappy party city with to revive one of my earlier costumes. I’ll shed a few layers from the outfit I wore as Karkat in February, since it’ll probably be in the 90s by the weekend, but hopefully the modifications I made for the troll costume will blend nicely with the whole vocaloid look.

Paula Deen would be proud.

So I decided to make cookies for a cute charity fundraiser bake sale, dubbed “Iron Chef America,” using a recipe I used a few years ago to make Swiss Spitzbuben. (The first time my mom made them for me was when I was in elementary school. I thought the name was absolutely hilarious. Now, I just appreciate how they’re 90% butter)

In everyday life I’m a klutz, but I do pride myself on being able to maneuver pretty smoothly in the kitchen. Wrong!

It all started out fine- warming up sticks of butter, and mixing them with confectioners sugar, salt, a pinch of vanilla, and eventually adding in flour. Now, I’m not terribly confident with a mixer, but I never expected it to fall off the counter, sending butter everywhere after turning it off to go grab some more ingredients. Needless to say, I had a swell time cleaning it all up, wiping the floor and cabinets, and cleaning the mixer for more use.

The batter turned out okay, thankfully, and it now chilling out in the fridge before I butcher it, cutting out shapes. After that, I’ll bake them and add fruit preserves in the middle. Yum!

Now that I mention it, I do believe I see an unopened jar of Paula Deen preserves watching me from the pantry……

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
