Tiny Piggies and Spleen Juice

On the off note, I hate Elephant Ears. I used to eat them when I was little. We'd get them every time we went to Canada's Wonderland and when we went to fairs. I can't eat them now, even the smell makes me feel sick. So, alas, I have not had one for years. Same thing with funnel cakes. Totens (I'm not sure how you spell it exactly) are still okay though...Probably because their is a lack of sugar...

I really have no idea why I'm rambling on about food but...Poutine is awesome sauce incarnate. If you've never had it before make some. I'll give you the recipe. Ready? Gather some straight cut fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Cook the fries and make gravy. Place fries in bowl (or on a plate). Put cheese curds on top of fries. Pour gravy over cheese curds and fries. Eat and enjoy. There you have it. And here is a picture:



Creme Brulee is also delicious:



Crepes:



You've probably seen those before...And eaten them. I beg pardon but I'm bored...and slightly tired. I'm not sure why I won't just go to sleep, but...


So, on to other things. This week we dissected piglets in Biology class. This is what the little piggies looked like (not my pictures mind you):






We (my group) had a female pig. I named her Mary Shelley. It was appropriate, or at least I thought so. We didn't end up opening her mouth as wide as the pictures though. By the way, the smell was worse on day two. The first day wasn't that bad, the second day wasn't horrible either...it was just slightly worse.

So we basically cut her open on day one,  and gutted her on day two. We had to at the very least cut out the  small intestine to measure how long it was (roughly 3m), but we took out the other bits to get a better look. (The lungs and heart are very interesting).

The pigs had a tendency to, well, squirt juices and stuff when you'd cut some places and try to open them. My one partner got what I'm dubbing as spleen juice in his eye. "Twas very funny indeed.


This week they also cancelled one of my classes so now I'm going to be taking sociology next month. That should be interesting.


Now I'm going to put up scenes from some of my favourite stuff...

I love FMA...



Hmm...

Blessed be,

OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

I'M IN A CAPITAL LETTERS MOOD
(I'M SORRY)


.

LAST TIME I CHECKED


I WAS PRETTY SURE






THAT WE WERE ALL, OR MOSTLY






WRITERS!




Get out that pad and pen! That Word document that hasn't been touched for, and I swear, a WHOLE DAMN MONTH, and write! Write faster than that measly breeze outside, and faster than Springheeled Jack on the roofs of several flat buildings in London!
Don't write too fast though, or else I won't be able to keep up xD


I'm not asking a lot! I'm asking for the thing that most of you have been doing and enjoying for a very long time- writing your fanfictions! Your novellas! Your beautiful, beautiful poetry.


And things were going perfectly cool like that, and everything was fine, and then suddenly we stopped xD 


I know you've got a tonne of things going on in your life, and I know that chat can be excessively addictive, but sometimes you just have to stop talking to epica people and write. Trust me, it seems like a sucky idea at the time, but once you've written something, it gives you a very, very cool feeling of awesomeness :)


I'M NOT SINGLING ONE PERSON OUT! THIS IS FOR EVERYONE! YOU DON'T NEED TO COMMENT ON THIS, YOU JUST NEED TO WRITE! AWAY, MY FELLOW MINIONS! TO YOUR RAVENS!

For Auld Lang Syne, My Dears

...So, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year...Or...Happy Holidays and what have you. It has been a very interesting year (shut up, I know I'm late on this!). In 2011 I:

-Started writing a new story (not much of an accomplishment)
-Got some various accents down
-Started to learn how to read, write, and speak Japanese
-Went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (I almost cried)
-Saw the final Harry Potter movie
-Watched the following animes:
           -Spirited Away
           -Kuroshitsuji
           -5 Centimetres Per Second
           -Ponyo
           -Bleach
           -Naruto
           -Fullmetal Alchemist (again)
           -Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
-Played Fallout: New Vegas and decided that no matter what, Boone should be my follower (I don't give a damn if I'm playing Skyrim...Boone should be there!)
-Played Skyrim
-Played the Endless Setlist on Rock Band Two on the guitar (84 songs)
-Started watching the Walking Dead
-Wondered about the weather
-Had a green and slightly warm Christmas
-And realized that I'm starting to get older.

Among other things...

Do you know how you realize that you're not as young as you used to be? The answer is that you are more than happy to recieve socks and underwear for Christmas.

I think I was happier about that than I was about the iPod. (I've been waiting for one for...four years? Maybe?) Waiting pays off. There was a Turkish proverb that said..."Patience is bitter, but it bears sweet fruit"...I think that is the quote...

In any case I hope this year will be awesome.

Blessed be,
Miss Mary Hiashi
