HALLELUJAH OBAMA IS STILL OUR PRESIDENT!!! All hope for America is not completely lost!

I got up early just so I could vote when the polls opened at 7am. Barack Obama is the first politician I've ever LOVED, and I am so proud to support him and call him my president. ^______^ His acceptance speech made me feel downright patriotic for the first time ever.

This is SWEET! A collection of awesome American voice actors, including my favorite, Rob Paulsen, read Star Wars in the voices of their various characters. I've never heard of Emerald City Comic Con before, but based on this, I'm going to have to look into going next time around if this is the caliber of talent they attract!

Yesterday evening my friend Kim ([livejournal.com profile] greenanimal) and I went to see Cavalia in San Francisco. It was fun and full of surprises!

This is so awesome! This video combines some of my most favorite things seamlessly, my very favorite background music from Sonic the Hedgehog which happens to be from my favorite level ever (the ice level of Sonic 3) with one of my very favorite Michael Jackson songs and videos, Smooth Criminal. If you appreciate either of these things, watch it!

Woo!

I just found the most awesome thing ever hiding on my computer!

We Are Here to Change the World

THIS IS THE SONG FROM CAPTAIN EO!!! Download it!

It's the one he sings to the evil queen, if you don't remember (not the one at the end, that's Another Part of Me, which can be found on the Bad album). All this time I've been trying to find a Captain EO soundtrack in order to get this one song, and it turns out it was on the Ultimate Collection CD #2 all along! ^o^

Here's a crappy YouTube video of the scene:

The concert was amazing! It was awesome to be so close to the stage, and I got a ton of great pictures and souvenirs out of it. Brad Paisley is one of my very favorite country artists, so it was fantastic to see him in person. If you don't know who he is, I implore you to watch these couple of videos from him. He's known for doing a lot of really funny songs, not just your typical country fare. These are hilarious, even if you don't like country, please give them a chance!

Had my 90 day evaluation at work today. I hate evaluations, they are so scary to me! I don't handle criticism well, even when it's minor. Oh well, just got the same thing I always get: "You're doing a great job, but smile more!" Dude, my face just doesn't work that way; believe me, it's been like this my whole life. I'm just not a smiler! I don't sit around grinning for no reason, my face is just sort of neutral at all times. At least it feels completely neutral to me, people tell me I look like I'm frowning or something. And apparently my idea of smiling must be on a much smaller scale than everyone else. Sigh. This is how I smile, just deal with it! =p

Went to the Sharks' fifth playoff game of the first round with my brother last night, and they KICKED ASS!! It was SUCH an awesome game! They absolutely dominated and were finally able to get the puck past Colorado's goalie, clobbering them 5-0. Woohoo! So glad I got to go to that one! It was the first game in this series where they've led by more than one goal. One more win and they move to the next round of the playoffs! GO SHARKS!! =D

Pics from the game )

Then last night as I was driving home, I saw a freaking big spider crawl across the INSIDE of my windshield!! D= Aaaaauuuuggghhh! Spiders freak me the fuck out! Normally I don't mind them, as long as they stay the hell off of me and out of my space! And inside my truck is definitely my space! I was nearly home when I saw it and had to stop for gas anyway, so I pulled into a station to fill up and try to get the damn thing out. Well it FELL off the windshield, and I had no idea where it went! I looked all over with a flashlight trying to find it without any luck. So then I had to get back in with the mysterious missing spider and drive the rest of the way home (about four blocks). >_< I damn near had a panic attack on the way, thinking about it coming crawling out of my steering column or something and was driving with one finger on the wheel and jumping at every movement out of the corner of my eye. I'm such a freaking sissy. I made it home safely, but the spider is still missing. ARGH.

Second game of the first round of playoffs, Sharks vs. Avalanche, Avs leading the series 1-0. Oh man, what an amazing game! So glad my class got cancelled tonight so I could watch it! My neighbors are probably sick of all my screeching and cheering. ^^;

Most of the game was actually pretty frustrating, though action-packed. I was getting pissed off throughout it because the Avs kept leading by one, and every time the Sharks scored an answering goal, the Avalanche scored right back, sometimes within seconds, to reclaim the lead. Nabby was off his game, seeing as the Avs and the Sharks had the same amount of goals, but the Avs had about four times fewer shots on goal than the Sharks. =\ The Sharks were really charging the net and getting tons of shots off and lots of great chances, but they just couldn't get them in like they should have.

So at the end of the third period the Avs were leading 5-4, and as hard as the Sharks were playing, it looked like they had little chance of scoring at the last minute. But then a break for my favorite player, my boy Joe Pavelski! He accidently blocked a shot with his leg right in front of the Avs' goal, and the puck dropped right at his feet and he knocked it in the net with only about 30 seconds left in the period! Tied it up 5-5! Phew!! The Sharks got another chance by going to overtime.

And thankfully, Nabby did much better in OT, blocking all the Avs' shots. The Sharks kept up their momentum and pressure on the Avs, and they drew a penalty when one of the Avs knocked one of the Sharks into the Avalanche net, knocking it off and getting an interference penalty. That gave the Sharks a power play in which they continued to whale on the Avs, and Devond Setoguchi, my second favorite, scored the winning goal! Sooooo awesome!!!

I have no bowling-related icons...hmm...

I managed a new all-time best score for me in bowling tonight, breaking the elusive 200 barrier! My previous high game was a 197, but tonight I got a 203. Go me! I had another first for me in order to get it, five strikes in a row. =D Plus a double in the tenth frame, so seven strikes in all.

So yeah, woohoo! Just wanted to mark the occasion, as it's not likely to happen again for a long time! Would be nice if it did at the bowling tournament I'm in on Saturday...

I HAVE A TATTOO!

I didn't do this in haste or on a whim. For at least a decade now I've been contemplating getting a horse-related tattoo of some sort. Maybe five years or so ago I came across an image online of a beautiful ink painting of a horse head that absolutely I loved. It's simple and elegant and just amazing; for some reason it just spoke to me. I saved it and thought it might make a nice tattoo someday.

Someday is today )
