tortoisegirl: (Sparkle sparkle)
I've recently given into the madness and watched all of the new My Little Pony episodes. I've made no secret that I like children's cartoons and even though this one is like an overload of pink sparkly rainbow cute, I like it. Okay, maybe I like it because of the pink sparkle rainbow cute. Twilight Sparkle is my favorite.

It's a lot more entertaining than almost everything on Disney Channel, at least. Had me laughing out loud a lot and the cultural references scattered around and wtf silliness of it remind me of Cartoon Network's stuff (Billy & Mandy, Flapjack, etc). Even if each episode ends with a big ol' "moral of the story" wrap up. There's an episode based on the tribble ep of Star Trek, and another on the Greek myth of Icarus! And songs that get stuck in your head for days and days! And they have a city called Fillydelphia how cute is that.

Also, this:

In short, haters to the left.

One more final to email in tomorrow and this semester and I are fucking done, professionally.

Last two weeks were the stress weeks from hell, and this video, which was randomly posted in a thread somewhere, was pretty much the only thing cheering me up. I know videos of cute animals are the oldest of meme but idgaf. I actually squeed at the bunny. (Oh god my five-year-old self is rearing her pigtailed head I want a pet bunny)

I had a phone interview last Friday with someone from the Japanese consulate. I was okay, I guess. If the interviewer was noting down "inarticulate bumble" at times I really can't blame him, and I ended up repeating myself an embarrassing number of times. I'll find out by the end of the month whether I got into the program or not. I mean, there's a chance everyone else they interviewed sounded worse than me, right? ...right? (And sort of related, I got my passport in the mail! It's new and shiny and has pictures of cacti and buffalo inside!)

Will be working a bit more than expected these first two weeks of summer, since stuff's all crazy with summer classes starting and a million other things happening in the office. My boss got an iPad for the office though, which hopefully I will get to play with. I haven't gotten to use the Kindle other than ooooh-ing over it. What the point in working somewhere with a built-in reason to buy gadgets if I can't use them?

I'm also endeavoring to use to tags. We'll see how that goes.
