Donovan's Mood! WHOO!!

A Word From Atop The Soapbox
J'aime Les Miserables

Japanese Engrish of the Week
In an old game called "Battle Rangers": You! Invaders! Get you the hot bullets of shotgun to die!

Anger Management. Rantings and Ravings of an Otaku Gamer from the great white north with too much free time and not enough ways to use it.

Donovan William MacLure AKA. Warrior of the Powerful Dragon (I absolutely love the meaning behind names) AKA. Ryouri Kenkaku

Born March 28th 1985

I'm 18 friggin' years old and in grade 12! LET'S GO VOTE!


This place let's me get away when I need to be angry and let's me be happy when I need to do that. It's dual purpose! While you think this place will be interesting it will end up being about the following:

Games. I love gaming, it's part of what I do. How can you deny video games as an art form when people spent countless hours making them beautiful and giving the most gripping stories you've ever taken part in. That's right, you take part in the story. Better than a book. Gimme a better story than the Chrono Trigger series. Try it.

But books are great, I'll read most anything as long as it's long enough to really get me in. Fan abuse? You better believe I'll drop your book if you fill it with fan abuse. Table top books and games fit into this category. What can I say, I love playing my own character.

Where gaming is what I do, anime is what I breathe. Nothing beats it. Name something else that captures your emotion like Kare Kano, something that twists your perception like Neon Genesis Evangelion, a movie more gripping that Gin-Roh, characters more lovable than those from Fushigi Yuugi, action more intense than that found in Rurouni Kenshin, or anything more chaotically hilarious than Excel Saga.

Then there's Rae. My life and my love. When I'm sad I think of her. When I'm happy I think of her. She's my one and only and I wouldn't have it any other way.

This is too much for a sidebar, but remember this layout was made by my love mentioned above, Rae, from this website, hosted by Tripod and of course powered by Blogger.

Oh yeah! Umm... I'm back o_o

And I brought some horrible Spanish sickness with me! Hooray! I feel like crap, but at least I know I don't have SARS from the Toronto Airport because I starting geting sick in Costa Brava and sore stomachs aren't part of SARS! Whoo!

Europe was fan-fucking-tastic

I really don't know what else to say... if I find a scanner as well as someone to give me some webspace I'd really like to put up a simple site with pictures from my trip. Let me know if you can help out ^_^

I enjoy the simple things in life. Like Complexity.

I haven't gotten a new gamecube game in months. I feel deprived. I need new games, and there are so many nice new ones. Soul Caliber... and The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker. I want it so bad! SO BAD!

I'm stealing this very creative survey from Rae-chan because she's not here and I'm bored XD Bwa ha ha ha ha ha hee hee hee hoo!

What would your parents have named you if you had been born a member of the opposite sex?: Probably something like Donna or Denise
If you could have chosen the name you were born with, what would you be named?: Ash, Damian, Asia
What do you plan to name your offspring(s)?: I've always liked Evangeline myself. Also Laura. For boys... feh... I dunno... bah. Who cares!? Boys are smelly and gross! XP
What is your favorite name for a pet?: Asuka ^.^ I just love that name. Freya is nice too o.o

Favorite variation of coke (Diet, Vanilla, Cherry, etc): Cherry! Mmmmm...
Favorite Disney kids movie: Atlantis. That was sooooooo good.
Favorite yogurt flavor: Stawberry Kiwi ^.^
Favorite Sanrio character: Badtz Maru! Followed closely by Pochacco
Favorite 80s band: Eurythmics
Favorite horror movie: Signs, The Ring (stolen) as well as Fear.com it wasn't so much frightening, but it was really good
Favorite Blink-182 song: Anthem part 2
Favorite Shakespear play: Hamlet
Favorite way to prepare beans: In Chili

Do you prefer chocolate or vanilla?: Vanilla ^_^
Mint chocolate-chip or chocolate-chip cookie dough?: Mint chocolate-chip without a doubt
Earth, air, fire, water?: FIE-A!
French or Spanish: Le francais
Western or Chinese zodiac?: Zodiac frightens me... Western
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?: Harry Potter
Boys or girls?: Girls! ^.^ Boys are smelly! XP
Monochromatic or color?: Depends. If I'm making it, monochrome. If it's anything else, colours.
Sleeping in or getting an early start?: Depends day to day, but both.
Kid Rock or Limp Bizkit?: Limp Bizkit! Whoo! Whoo! YEAH!

Do you believe that love conquers all?: Absolutely
Do you think love can last forever?: Not for everyone but for the lucky, yes.
Does it ever bother you that divorce is so common these days?: Not so much as it bothers me that so many divorces happen between men and women that are parents.
Do you want to have a traditional wedding ceremony?: I think Traditional just because it's so pretty and lovely and such <3_<3 I'd want to get some of the religious babble out of the ceremony, though.
Estimate . . . for every five of your friends, about how many have their virginity?: 4
Does it ever seem to you like sex has nothing to do with love any more?: Yes. The two are completely seperated and us, as the young lovers of the world, are the victims.

Does the use of sexuality in advertising bother you?: Nah. If you're dumb enough to buy ice cream or paper because you saw boobs in the ad you deserve to lose your money
Do you like Nelly?: Not. One. Bit.
Do you wear pajamas?: No ;-; I need some
Do you ever wish you could live in another place and time?: My ultimate fantasy is to have one of those classic stories where I would grow up from a young age with the person I would be with forever. You know, like as kids are parents would be friends and we'd be just buddying around. Then through young teens be like a couple, bounce around through breakups, arguments, bad boyfriend/grilfriends and then eventually enbd up in eachother's arms again forever ^_____^ I'd love to share that with Rae. (The same people boo and jeer my cheesiness)

I'm sorry everyone, I haven't been posting here recently. Let me give you a bit of a review;

The rehearsals are going nuts. Every day, Lunch and after school and Saturday morning and afternoons. Also as soon as school starts in April the rehearsals go to 4 hour incriments during weekdays and 8 hours on saturdays and some sundays. Good friday weekend we have an 8 hour rehearsal on the friday and the saturday.

Our world is going to hell in a handbasket isn't it? This war is bullshit. Yesterday there were 37 innocent casualties and it's only a day in. There even more bombs today. I can't believe they'd bomb Saddam's palace. Seriously. Obviously he's not going to be there. Did they not evacuate Bush from the White House during september 11th? All they did was kill the innocent people working there.

Also my grandad has thyroid and lung cancer. It's from the cigarettes apparently. Great. I so want to work for T.R.U.T.H

I dropped my art classes. Too much stress and such. I love art and all but... meh

So our Europe trip almost got cancelled because of this ass-clown of a war. As Brad put it, when his mom said she didn't want him to go: France is the country that DOESN'T want to go to war. Either way we get to go, the school board just won't accept any responsibility for our "imminent" deaths. Got my Euros yesterday. Whheeeeeeee

So I really miss Rae-chan. I haven't talked to her in days because of these rehearsals. Tonight though I have all afternoon and evening to myself. Hopefully I'll see Rae then. Also I have Saturday evening and Sunday (whenever I'm not packing) *hint hint*

I'm so bored and tired! Also though, this post looks kind of depressing because there are no emoticons o_O sorry about that. Seeya.

Ugh. so tired

I was at rehearsal all day... so tiring... and then went to Jerry's. Everyone was there. Played some super smash bros melee, watched Jin-Roh again and did random stupid immature fun.

Jin-Roh has got to be my favourite movie of all time

I'm really tired today so I'm gonna head off. Only really came on to see if Rae-chan was on. I feel horrible for last night barely clinging to conciousness during out phone call. ._. feel really bad.

G'night all

Ugh.

I figured it out. I never got Rae-chan's call because my cousin was online on her laptop, using the phoneline.

Now I feel even worse. I should have known that.

Been awake since 1:49:36 PM


What a crummy weekend e.e

This saturday was my Papa's (great grandpa's) 90th birthday. I could not attend because I had a Les Miserables rehearsal that day and had signed a contract with Mr. Bud saying pretty much that he owns my schedule for the next couple months of my life. So anyway I had made the arrangements and stayed in the city. Yesterday I went to said rehearsal to find there was no rehearsal. It was on saturday the 8th. Not saturday the 1st.

So I'm a complete idiot and missed a huge event. Great.

So then people came over to play monopoly. I let on that I was having a marginally good time but the entire time I kept reminding myself in the head why I was there playing monopoly in the first place. Then when everyone left, Chris Lindsay bolted so he didn't have to leave. Chris? You are an ASS HOLE

After everyone left I went online with PSO to play with the other WPG guild members. All we did was play challenges I disliked. No one even wanted to actually PLAY the game! And christ. After almost anything happened. Beating somone, casting a good spell, opening a box, walking, christ even after standing alone, people would say LOL or a variation thereof. NOTHING WAS FUNNY! STOP CLOUDING MY SCREEN WITH SPEECH BUBBLES! I copmpletely lost my sanity and my patience soo after, when the game froze and I lostr quite a bit of coinage and items. >___< That's when I came online on the comp.

The only bright point was seeing Rae when I got on. I never expected to see her and it was grand. I told her about my day and she was really comforting and stuffs. Then, out of the kindness of her heart, only to be nice to me, she suggested she call me because I had expressed that I wanted to snuggle onto my couch and wrap up and talk to here like we do on the phone. SO I get offline, go downstairs, get my bed ready, lay down and put the phone in my hand so I'm ready for her to call (since it was about 12:30 and I didn't want to wake people up). I turn on the tv to SNL and I wait... and I wait... and then I wake up IN THE MORNING!? What the hell! My tv was off when I woke up, it was on when I apparently went to sleep! Anyway I fell asleep. when I awoke I couldn't help thinking why Rae didn't call. I waited about 20 minutes before I accidentally fell asleep. Suddenly I have the complusion to *69 and...

The last caller WAS Rae-chan. I fell asleep and missed her call. I pretty much completely ditched Rae after she decided to do something nice for me! Aren't I great!?

~_~ shoot me. ~_~ kill me. ._. leave me alone...
