Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He's only 59.
2007... be fucking over already! This is the worst year in history.

Katakana is extremely difficult for me to learn. I tried the flash cards (link in a previous entry) but was sucking like my second date depends on it and gave up for the day (I was stalling from homework, anyway). It sucks that I can't read katakana because there's so much of it on Myspace Japan. I mean, I am certainly good at guessing my way around, and am learning some new kanji and am recognizing a few kana, but it's a pain.

I ended up with a 40 question test in Anatomy to make up, a 70 question Pharm test that I stayed up all night finishing, and my final for Pharm, a take-home, thankfully, and due Tuesday, is 150 questions. Plus, I need to do 4 majour projects, as they count for 40% of my grade (but I think I mentioned this already).

Hellboy II is coming. I suck for not having seen the first movie yet. I need to see it soon.
Stardust is coming to DVD soon. I'm excited. I really loved it, though it was a tad different from the book.
I finally saw Sin City. Charles bought it on a whim from CompUSA and we had it for weeks before finally sitting down to watch it. Charles, naturally, fell asleep near the end. I loved the movie very much.
Somehow, I managed to get Madagascar sent to me from Columbia House, and I don't know why. However, since it was sent to Mr. F Valentine, I feel no guilt in ripping them off by ordering a tonne of other DVDs which I hope will be here soon.

Today (going on as we speak, actually) is Nicholas Gurewich's book signing for his Dark Horse hardcover collection of PBF comics called The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and other stories.
Tomorrow (Friday) is his publishing party / gallery opening at Boulder Coffee Co on the corner of Alexander and S. Clinton. You'll find me there. I think it starts at 8, but Charles and I will be there earlier for a good place to sit.
Saturday is Brendan's Vertex birthday party where I'll also be.
And if I remember correctly, Cindy and PJ will be at Vertex on the 20th.
Oh yeah, and Christmas, Rhuss's birthday, and New Year's Eve are somewhere in there, too.

Lastly, please notice that I am using my mood icon thingies for the first time in, like, a year.

Oh damn, Terry Pratchett cannot have Alzheimer's. It's NOT ALLOWED.

And Sin City was way weird and amusing.

I know! Somebody should tell him he's not allowed to get horrible diseases.
