Hey! Yeah! Now you mention it...

but anyway, I think we should talk about something else. Thinking about that phaser gives me the chills.

Do they even know about us?

If they did, they should see that we're the greatest Clue/do geniuses out there.

I've discovered a surprisingly excellent TV series, Dark Oracle. Now long cancelled, as I unfortunately found out, it was a Canadian TV show and it's actually really surprisingly good. Here's a link to the first part of the first episode:

You know it's time to wash your hair when flies buzz around it. :shock:

If you don't wash your hair for a month or so, your natural biology will kick in and your hair will feel very lush and nice...like cat fur.

While writing my English exam/essay, I felt an earthquake, which I at first mistook for some over-zealous writing on my part that shook my desk. I stopped writing, but my desk kept shaking, and what's more, I felt the floor shaking as well. People delightedly took this as a distraction, and although it was kinda neat, I was under a time constraint and returned to my writing.

We felt it too. My friend and I thought the cleaning lady was shaking the house.

After having the displeasure of sitting through Mother of Tears, I may have nearly lost all respect I had for Dario Argento. The effects are awful, Asia Argento's acting is horrendous, the Argento atmosphere is nonexistent-and a bunch of Hot Topic cultists nearly turn it into a comedy.

Furthermore, the gratuitous nudity became ridiculous, with random topless extras popping in every so often for no reason at all. Then, the continuity of the first two films of the Three Mothers "trilogy" are generally. ignored-except for a brief nod to Suzy of Suspiria. The Mother of Tears and her evil bedazzled red shirt of doom fall flat.

I had a pretty good time at my grad dinner, but didn't stay for the dance (see New Movies topic). Looking back, though, I mostly feel sentimental about it since nearly all the kids I'm graduating with were the ones I've gone to school with since grade school. I only had a nasty falling-out with two of the girls, whom I avoided like the plague.

With everyone else, we just naturally drifted apart, went down different roads, developed different interests...otherwise, we were friendly to each other. Those were the ones I chose to talk to. I also talked to a few girls whom I had managed to befriend, but will sadly be heading off to different universities in the fall.

My PC has packed up. So I'll either be on the Wii or the Playstation.

Just got back from the G20 protest. Downtown Toronto is a mess. Any American Cooperation in the business district of the city has been smashed and looted. Walking along University Ave, we could see that Foot Locker, American Apparel, Starbucks, Adidas, McDonalds, Burger King and several others all got hit. The group I was with didn't participate in any of the serious stuff, but we came face to face with the riot police. A woman in front of me got apprehended, screaming as she was chucked over the fence. The police did that to her because all she did was put on a gas mask. Pigs. We took photos as evidence. Motorists did attempt to drive, but they weren't going anywhere. Not when there's a protest going on.

Overall I thought the protest was peaceful, but then we weren't in the areas where the cop cars were set ablaze, tear gas was released or where the police charged the crowd.

Here are some pictures to show whats going on.
