Mood: Quite good…
Listening to: Oh.. hang on a minute… Yes, Barenaked ladies again… Still Big Bang Theory theme ^_^
What can I say? I really love this series.
If you don’t know what The Big Bang Theory is… it’s a tv show… about a girl (Penny) who moves into an apartment across from two.. erm.. geeks… Sheldon and Leonard. They are both experts in their field or something, so they are really brainy. Leonard is somewhat normal… and he falls in love with Penny… where as Sheldon seems to be a pod person. And if you told him that he’d take it as a compliment. Leonard and Sheldon has two friends, Howard and Raj. Howard considers himself a total playah.. where as close to every woman on earth disagree with him… and Raj.. poor Raj.. He’s brainy too, but he can’t bring himself to talk infront of women… well, he can, but only when he’s drinking.
But yeah… I so so so so recommend this show. It’s by far the funniest comedy series shown on tv of late.
The other day I had an Anime Marathon. I think it was a sunday… Sundays are usually very slow days. And G hadn’t even updated a movie for me *snifflepuppyeyepleaseputmoremoviesup*couch**
Anyways… I had to pull out my arsenal of anime movies.
I started off with Ponyo… (Gake no ue no Ponyo) *SPOILER*
It’s really adorable… and about a mermaid/fish/jellyfish thing that breaks out of her fishtank under the sea where her father put her. Not under the sea.. well, that too.. but in the fishtank. He’s a water master wizard thing.. Ok, don’t blame me for the scetchy explanations. The Ponyo version I found online has REALLY bad english… So yeah.. she escapes and finds a boy named Sosuke… He catcher her in his bucket and takes her to school with him… so they bond and stuff.
The father of Ponyo wants her back, because he doesn’t want her to turn into a human, because all *they* do is polute the oceans. He manages to catch her again and locks her in a bubble down by the seaaa~~~~ I mean, under the sea…
she escapes again, but before she does unleaches watery hell…
Long story short, Ponyo and Sosuke meet up again.. they become friends, by this time Ponyo has become a little girl… Her father isn’t the only one with magic… There’s a huge storm and when it ends they go to find Sosuke’s mother, who left to check out some people in an old peoples home. Ponyo’s mother tells Ponyo’s father not to be such an ass and eventually things turn out great… Ponyo gets to become a human girl, and eventually Sosuke gets to marry a very hyper redheaded girl…
Second movie was Howl’s Moving Castle (Hauru no ugoku shiro) *SPOILER AGAIN*
I LOVE this movie. I don’t know why. From the first time I watched it I just loved it. The whole mix of the music, the nice flow of the moive, how Sofi struggles to come to turns with her “new identity”… and struggling with Hauru.
So… a girl in a town. She sees herself as a boring, “melt into the background” kinda girl, meets Hauru, the wizard who is said to eat pretty girls hearts. While out walking one day, two soilders start to hazzle her, and Hauru comes to her rescue. But Hauru is a wanted wizard and while being persued by black blob thingies, he whisks her away. After that she’s kinda on cloud nine.. She’s not worried about her heart being eaten by him, tho, because she doesn’t think of herself as pretty. Later that night “The Witch of the Waste” comes to see Sofi and puts a spell on her, making her old. She thinks that she can’t show herself like that and runs away, ending up in Hauru’s castle. The next morning, when the castle comes alive, so to speak, she introduces herself as the help, and everyone seems to be ok with that. Even Karushifâ (Calcifer), the fire demon who seems to have a very nice relationship to Hauru seems to be ok with her coming in there and almost killing him… unwittingly… So yeah… to make a long thing short…
Hauru and Sofi fall in love, and eventually, after some time traveling and stuff, they make people stop having a terrible war and move into the casle and live happily ever after.
Third one: My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari no Totoro) *SPOILER*
Again… I love the movie.. but in this one because I want a Totoro of my own… <3
Family move to a new house which is inhabited by soot spirits or something… they are truely adorable.
Later the youngest daughter find a secret passage to the natur spirit or something like that, Totoro… Huge, bear like.. huggleble… adorable.. cuddly… ME WANT!
Later her older sister sees him too… loads happen, the mother is ill, in hospital… littlest girl runs away, older one uses Totoro to find her… And they get on a Cat Buss… <3
Mother is OK.. everything is fine.. love the movie… see it.
Fourth; Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi)
Family move to new place, take a wrong turn and end up on a dead end. Get out of the car and walk through an opening in a wall. Then they find a town, the parents sit down and starts to eat loads of food. Chihiro walks away and discovers a boy who tells her to go away. She runs back to her parents only to discover that they have turned into pigs. She runs away screaming, and as it’s getting darker spirits of various nature appear. She starts to dissapear, but the boy comes and gives her a beary or something. Then he smuggles her into the spa in town run by Yubaba, a terrible witch.
After alot of talk etc. Chihiro gets a new name by Yubaba, Sen, and gets a job at the spa. All this so that she can eventually find a way to make her parents not pigs.
Loads of things happen, all of them cool.. and she manages to get her parents back to normal… the end.
Yes, I know everything is UBER short, but I can’t be arsed to write a full movie review of them all..
I didn’t get to see Kiki’s Delivery Service… It’s an ok movie… It’s not my favorit…
And then to other things..
Jan got a letter last week from a doctor in Ski. He said that Jan had to come to have his thumb operted on today… not the day we got the letter, but today… August 18th..
So we went there… this is after we, two months ago, went to another doctor in Ski to have the finger looked at, to figure out what to do. He didn’t want to do anything with it…
Jan went into the doctors office today and the new bloody doctor didn’t want to do anything with it either! Another doctor… a propper cut ’em surgeon doctor looked at the thumb and said “You’d better come back September 10th… we need to get up full anestethic and stuff… ”
so yeah.. more waiting… UGH!
Happy Birthday, mum…
Hope you had a lovely day.. Sorry I can’t be there… but you know how it is…. besides… you couldn’t have been able to fit everyone into your apartment again… not after the remodeling…
