MovieReview (but not really): Suicide Squad

After a lot of rescheduling, Zahra and I finally went to watch this movie as late as today xD

It was pretty good for a chill person that just wanted to watch a super hero movie. In all honesty, it was pretty true to what most people said about it- how it was a disappointment. I mean, The Joker didn’t get anyyyy screen time. He also wasn’t the REAL Joker to me cuz he was so in love with Harley Quinn and that is NOT what the real Joker was. Otherwise, Harley Quinn was surprisingly my favourite character. She was funny and totally crazy. She was amusing.

HOWEVER, WILL SMITH THOUGH. Like, I don’t at all know anything about this Deadshot character, but damn, the movie totally was focused more on him than any other character. Including the Enchantress. I feel like they could’ve done more with the conflict and developed it more, but naaah.

Again, it’s not a bad movie, but it totally isn’t a good super hero one either. It’s worth a watch if you’re okay with treating these characters as not the real Joker etc., but otherwise, it’s not worth a second watch. Meh.

Zahra and I had fun though, so all’s good :3

The Story of A Construction Vest

I got my vest delivered to the office that Dave ordered, but nobody ever asked for my size. And that lead to quite some problems. But amusing ones. So here we go~

I rip open the box, and after shunning the disgusting hard hat into the corner under Kelly’s desk so it can never see the light of day again (there was hair in it!! Ewww), I pulled out the absolutely GORGEOUS neon yellow reflective construction crew type vest *O* I was entranced. It’s color was so beauuutifully florescent and I couldn’t wait to get it on. Which I did once Dobsin came to collect me that very day I got it.

I tore it out of it’s packaging and pulled it on. To my dismay, the size ordered was a medium, but either in men’s sizing or unisex, but either way, it definitely looked two sized too large on me. Dobsin started laughing when he saw me in it. He commented how I was basically swimming in it. Ignoring the disappointing size, I just focused on the authority it gave me on site. I was SUPPOSED to be there. And no one could question it as I blinded everyone I walked past. That cheered me up about it not fitting.

Anyhoo, it not fitting wasn’t too big a concern for me, Dobsin did say it was possible to order a new smaller one and just get the company to expense it. However, I didn’t think too much about it. I didn’t want to cause any unnecessary business, ya know? But a few days later, as Dobsin and I were in the field at Nelson again, it got pretty windy. And that’s when having a vest that fits would be ideal.

Did it catch the wind and make me feel like I was going to be blown away? Sort of. Will I admit that? Never. Did it make me look like that was true? Oh, definitely. That vest of mine would make a great parachute for me if I did end up getting blown away.

But additionally, there was another problem I hadn’t even realized…Having boobs and wearing a huge vest. Still not clear yet? Well, the wind blows that vest around in all sorts of crazy directions. But the vest is zippered on and even though it wants to fly away, it can’t, so it tries to get caught onto anything. And that’s when boobs become a problem.

The stupid vest would slide off one shoulder and force the deep v-neckline to become a boob sling on either boob depending which way the wind blew! And it was mortifying as I kept tugging and tugging at the stupid thing to keep it in place. But once we started taking shots and got into it, I couldn’t really use my hands to fix the vest and had to stand around with one boob jutting out from between the folds of my vest that were wings of an untamed creature at this point.

Dobsin was courteous enough to look away and I needed that. But I did ask then how to go about ordering a new, smaller vest. And he agreed it was absolutely necessary.

A few days later, and I actually reminded Dobsin to order it for me. It arrived on my desk Monday and I opened it up…only to discover it looked faaaar to large to be a size small. But that’s what the tag said. I stared at it suspiciously and then came to the realization that…maybe it was bigger than the vest I already had? So I pull out my medium sized vest and match the two up- LO AND BEHOLD, the new (imposter size small) vest was actually LARGER than my current one!! I died of laughter at that xD For a very good, long while.

It was an enjoyable look of disbelief I got to enjoy when I told Dobsin of how the new vest was actually bigger than my current one. So I’m stuck with the one I have now 😛 And hey, it could be worse. It could be windy. But it’s not. Haha, I just hope it stays that way! iA!

Driveway Dancing

Dang, I must really be hitting my  low point of boredom in the summer vacation now. Do you know why I say that? It’s cuz I had ANOTHER crazy dream last night. Two, even.

The first one starts off with dream-me looking at houses with the family in some hilly suburban area. Anyhoo, after a few houses, we find one we like in a good neighbourhood and buy it. Coincidentally, it turned out a looot of HS people lived there. Ateeq (ur Rehman from my grade) lived in the house completely opposite to mine. Omer (Aziz, the one and only lota) was a few houses over on the right of my house. Ahsen (Talha Ahsen of the “Flower Boys” as I called them back in sixth grade HAH xD ) also lived next to Omer. Kamil (big brother himself) lived somewhere nearby a few streets away and would come to hang out with these guys loads. What a weird combination, huh?

Additionally, all my batch people were going to the same uni as me at the time ie Ahsen, Omer and Ateeq.

Now one day, I was driving out of the house to commute to hang out with Dreads and Hibah  on campus. And cuz train life is best life. Duh. But on the drive back, I realized that today was a party at Ateeq’s house and I was debating whether or not to show up. Before I’d made up my mind, and before his party started, I was going out for a walk and saw Kamil all tuxed up dancing the waltz with Ahsen. And it instantly made sense to dream-me because there had been a ball at uni today for the frat Omer and Ahsen were a part of. (Yes, that’s the most realistic this dream has been in a whiiiile.)

So I just imagined there were teaching Kamil for fun and practising around in Ateeq’s driveway. (Ironically, Kamil would probably be the best dancer out of all of them but pfft not so much in my dream it seems like!)

I kind of came over to watch and ended up hanging out with Ateeq as these guys practised there steps and twirls. Later, once the party was starting and the early, punctual type of people showed up, Kamil went home to untux and wear some more casual clothes. But Omer, who was also suited up actually waited until Fatima showed up (I don’t know, okay, I just don’t) and asked her to dance. Qarni was her awkward self and kind of just went with it. They both seemed to suck, although Omer was fiiiine at half an hour ago and that’s where I started to think he  might like Qarni xD Later on in the party, they were having a hilarious time and laughing with each other like comfortable friends at their lack of dance skill :3

Now, once the party was properly started, I showed up inside Ateeq’s house and kind of ended up talking to some guy called Adam that had some pretty cool, shiny braces, like something out of the cartoon Brace Face.

Meghna of all people later joined our converesation and ended up getting super drunk and wouldn’t leave me alone…But then thankfully, Ateeq saved me by dragging me away and we just hung out the rest of the party, walking through his massively crowded house. I vaguely remember Ahsen trying to ask me to dance mid party too, but I just went nah, man and that was the end of that. I think he hung out with us for a while too until Ayesha showed up, and we replaced Ahsen with Ahsan xD Haha, jk, but he did decide to leave once Ayesha showed up and the three of us left had a blast just chilling and stair sledding of course xD

No celestial bodies exploded in this one, so maybe I’m not as bored as I think I am. Whatever. The next weeks about to get hella busy with my internship and all the grad parties anyways.

Oh, but that was the dream I had before walking up at 4:30 am.

After 4:30 am, my second dream:

Errr, shit, I think I forgot a lot of it while trying to piece together the details for the first one. Let’s see if I can get it back.

….

I totally can’t recall D: Dang iiiiit. Ugh. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to add to this post if I ever figure it out. But I’d like to post about the first dream at least. (I had another crazy dream a few nights ago, but because I couldn’t piece together the entire thing, I just never posted it on time. I’m still working on that one too.)

 

 

 

Haikyuu Memes

A haikyuu meme discussion thread thing happened with some friends on fb. This is what I found after that conversation. (I haven’t added the ones I collected from fb yet though.)

Most random game of monopoly ever.

(Total side note, but
I am shorter than Hinata! I’m 157.8 cm and he’s 162.8 cm.)

Ze Birthday Song Tradition and a Sorta Compilation

Ayesha and I have some very many straaaange traditions. And we have this Weird Birthday Song Tradition.

As the tradition goes, each of us tries to find a new, strange, wacky, crazy, insane, or just gag inducing birthday song for the other to sing at the other’s birthday. If I recall correctly, we started this off in O-II, maybe O-I or AS, but I found a strange, ancient BBC birthday song that went a little like this:

Happy birthday to you
Squashed tomatoes and stew
Bread and butter in the gutter
Happy birthday to you~!

And I absolutely love the eccentricity and just thorough STRANGENESS of it ❤ So I called her up on her birthday that year (whenever year that may be! 😛 ) and sang it to her! She laughed hysterically and she said she’d have to find a better one for my birthday. And so the tradition began :3

This is a super just us thing, though I have used this same BBC birthday song on other people, especially if I really consider them wonderful friends or wanna show them what they signed up to deal with when they became friends with me ^_^ Hee hee.

Anyhoo, I sang the song to my beloved Dreads on her birthday this year not too long ago, and even more recently, Ahlena’s birthday just passed and I wished her online because it was the weekend, but I did promise to wish her with a mini concert whenever I next saw her.

Which was only today! Unfortunately, she was late for class and even when I a third jokingly said I’d walk and sing for her anyways (two thirds compleeeetely serious, of course) (as I was latched onto her) she laughed and looked really embarrassed. Plus I wanted to find a new song specifically for her so I actually did let go.

So this is a small compilation of some birthday songs I find interesting that I found today on that search for a cutesy song I plan to sing to her after I sing a disastrously insane one 😀

I can’t believe I found this one before Ayesha, cuz it is PERRRRFECT for the magical spheres of snow that is me *O*

We Wish You a Very Merry Birthday
Oh We wish you a Very Merry Birthday
Oh We wish you a Very Merry Birthday
And We Hope Your Wish Comes True~

Here’s an one for my fellow impatient people waiting to dive into dat cake.

A candle on your cake,
blow it out for goodness sake
close your eyes and get thinking
of a wish you will make~

Now, I like the premise of this one, but I’m not so sure what the tune could be. I might just be reading it funny, but the syllable count seems a tad off to me :/

It’s my birthday soon
Would be over the moon
That I won a competition
For writing a tune~

Great tidings to me
when i win money
I’ll spend it at Amazon –
So happy I’d be~

To end on a happy note, this is the adorable one I found for her :3

Happy Birthday today,
May you eat, laugh and play.
May these flames be your worries
As you blow them away~!

And with that, I must perform some vocal excersizes.

High School Musical Anniversary

High School Musical. A must watch Disney movie from our childhood. But has it really been that long? YES, apparently it has.

The 20th of Jan 2016 was High School Musical’s TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY. Like, whaaaat. I can’t believe it’s been that long! #HSM10

I’ve literally grown up singing these songs and dreaming of high school being nearly half as cool as these movies- which, not to brag, but I think I managed quite easily xD

So as I sit here typing this and simultaneously put off scanning my calc III homework and listening to the songs from the movies, I’m reminicing all the wonderful moments High School Music has just had HAPPEN.

Be it mocking the movies once upon a time (only to embrace the pure brilliance that this franchise is and appreciate it as I should), making wonderful references, or being thrilled that my high school mascot was originally a Snow Leapard, which was to me, pretty damn close to a Wild Cat- how close? CLOSE ENOUGH. Oi, I DID have the same school colors as East High, so there is that~!

Anyyyways, the cast attempted to have a reunion, but since Zac Efron’s not there, it doesn’t count. But it still sorta happened- and he did send in a video, so there’s that. But I want a REAL reunion- and sooooon~!

I actually only found out about the reunion by stumbling across it on youtube, but this is the one I watched:

And because that wasn’t enough, I ended up also watching just this today which I think is a pretty cool compilation of some fun facts and did you knows from the movies :3

OH MY GOSH ❤ I wanna rewatch it again soooooon ❤ ❤ Even though I just marathonned the movies like a little over two months ago- oh well. I know what I’m doing this weekend 😀

Basically, to quote the last movie,
“I just hope the rest of my life
will feel as good as my
High School Musical.
Who says we have to let it go?
It’s the best part we’ve ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to High School Musical
Let’s celebrate where we come from
The friends who’ve been there all along, just like…
High School, High School Musical~!” ❤

A Different Kind of Finals Week

Last week and this week are when the final episodes of the Autumn season of anime are being released. What kind of finals week were you expecting me to talk about?

Onwards to discussing in no particular order baqwaas/terrible endings. [Spoiler Alert!]

I Diabolik Lovers More Blood

Okay, so this anime short is a total guilty pleasure and I totally called what happened in its final when ranting to my brother about the show. Basically, there’s no plot the first season, so when somehow the show got a second season, the producers probably thought if they wanted  a third season, they’d better get started on some ideas for a plot. So at an attempt to have a story line, they threw in whatever they felt like, which ended up being too much to conclude in twelve episodes. So they just…didn’t. Yeah, the show ends with the Mukami and Sakamaki brothers sort of realizing that they need to work together to fix the second major conflict (which they don’t, so there might be hope/fear? for a third season).

II Dance with Devils

Man, this is definitely one of those anime that I categorize as so bad that it’s good. It’s so utterly terrible that even though its not at all intended to be watched for comedy, it does indeed entertain one with that genre in mind. This anime is a stereotypical demons versus vampire supernatural anime with musical numbers. Yes, you read that right. The characters spontaneously burst into song, complete with costume change and different settings. It’s wonderful.

It’s ending of course was as successful as its (nonexistent) seriousness to the plot. Ritsuka is saved, blah blah, time to get to the important part: Rem confesses to her and she confirms that the feeling’s mutual. Magically and suddenly, Lindo is totally cool with their relationship and decides that he will protect Ritsuka from afar, loving her continuously. But Rem then declares how now that there’s no Grimoire to chase after (yeah, it suddenly disappears after midnight. It’s not like everyone was desperately worrying about it for eleven episodes. No biggie.), he no longer has any reason to stay in the human world (um, Ritsuka?). So he invites Ritsuka to come live with him in the demon world (which she can cuz she have devil). Ritsuka must not question why Rem can’t just live with her, but must now choose between her world and his.

Plot twist/no surprise there after her episodal breakdowns about wanting to be human and living in the human world: she chooses to live as a human in the human world.

Rem leaves and she goes back to being a normal, boring human teenager (which she was told she could never become again since she was half demon but whatever).

The end.

III Star Mu/ High School Star Musical

More musicals! Also stamped with my its so bad its good label, Star Mu is the Free! (Iwatobi Swim club) of music. With less plot, less female characters, much more music, and unintended comedy, this show is a must watch if you can tolerate a bad anime and appreciate its failure.

 

It was the first musical anime I saw of this season (or ever, maybe?) and its spur of the moment musicals are, as Ayesha puts it, “next level”. I mean, when there’s a character riding a giant magical whale dolphin hybrid and singing, you know shit’s real.

And although I haven’t really discussed its lack of an ending, I’d really like to end on that magestic note. I mean, look at that picture. What more could you want in life? (Except a second season? Which they sorta implied, so fingers crossed? xD )
