So much to say, so much to say...

It's days like Thursday that explain why I'm never home.  *grin*  Naturally, one of the first things I did was play Dance Dance Revolution.  The one I usually play is 4th Mix Plus, which has a total of 150 songs available in All Music mode.  I didn't just play it as I normally do, though... I cleared every 8 step difficulty song in the game in order, then cleared every 9 step one after that... yes, including Rhythm and Police somehow.  I played so intensely that for a while, I quite literally melted some of the rubber off the very bottom layer of my boots.  I didn't even think such a thing was possible just by dancing... but as I've done it once before while running around on asphault in 105 degree weather, I guess it is!  :P

I noticed this when I could feel small loose parts of the platform getting pulled upwards while I danced really hard at times, and realized that I was actually leaving some of my shoe on the game because it was getting slightly darker on the arrows.  I could hear little squishy noises when I raised my feet, too... like what you'd hear when you're pulling a thick sticker off a smooth surface.  So very strange... but kind'a cool, too.  I guess you could say I was burn-burn-burning the floor... and yes, that was a Naoki reference for those of you who caught it.  :)  Gina's ProfileGina came in later with a couple of her friends, Diana's ProfileDiana and Heidi's ProfileHeidi.  (Please forgive me if I got any of your names wrong!)  I somehow just knew all of them had LiveJournal accounts... I asked them, and I felt psychic when they all said they did... considering I never ask anyone that.

Went out to Farmers' Market at around 11:30 PM as usual... and being the creature of habit I've become lately, I went straight to the Broken Drum for a liter of Shaggy Dawg.  (They renamed my Pokemon beer to that... how could they!!!)  I then headed to the Fourth Street Tavern, where my buddy Sanford let me in without charging me anything at the door.  I immediately ran into my old friend Sherry who I hadn't seen in many months (last time I saw her was at the Broken Drum... *lol*) and bought her a drink.  It turned out that her ex-boyfriend was right outside and about to come in, so she asked me to pretend to be her boyfriend so that he'd leave her alone entirely.  It worked like a charm... and she had a lot of fun hanging all over me while he was around, too.  *lol*

I never made it home that night, because I never even slept.  I went to the West End Cafe for breakfast at around 8 AM, and was pleasantly surprised to see it was Vikki's shift.  She informed me that she's having a housewarming party soon, and that I should come.  After breakfast, I finally went home... and considered sleeping, but realized I had too much to do.  I just hit the shower, drank loads of water to rehydrate myself, and went back out again after putting on some clean clothes.  I wish I had the stamina to do this every day.  Oh, and by the way Tax's ProfileTax... I noticed a street named Francis for the first time on my way home, so of course I thought of you.  Why the Francis did I do that, though?  ;)

It's two days later now, and I'm hangin' out with my best friend Jordan.  I've still barely slept, yet I still feel full of energy (and not at all strange)... and surprise surprise, we're gonna go play DDR MAX2 with Justin in a bit.  It also looks like that $16/hour job in San Francisco is going to happen for me.  My life may not be anywhere near perfect, but I love it.  :)

Not odd at all... :)
Sorry about the typo... it won't happen again, Francis.  ;)  Hee hee... seriously though, I finally know your name!  Naturally, I figured it out a while ago because I've been reading your LiveJournal... but you never told me!  *scolds you*  Hee hee... :)

I'm suffering from DDR withdrawal right now... ;)
The DDR 4th Mix Plus machine at the arcade near where I live is gone right now.  It was rented out for a couple of graduation night parties, and today it's at a private summer camp.  I was actually just recently asked to demonstrate the game for the people over there, which I may go do on Wednesday.  I feel like some sort of local DDR celebrity or something... first an interview for a news segment, now private party demonstrations... what's next?  Should I literally "write the book" on DDR, and become an author?  ;)

By the way, what's this notion of "too much DDR" anyway?  There's such a thing as too much...?  *appears extremely confused*

Guilty as charged, and proud of it.  (That should sound familiar to you, Kat.)  Oh... by the way, I've been saving this one Lenneth Valkyrie icon for you.  I wish I could remember where I found it, though.  Feel free to use it as a LiveJournal user picture if you wish... but please upload it to your own Web space before you do that.  :)

I totally love your layout! You seem like a kewl and interesting person. Can I add you to my "friends list"? You can add me back, if you'd like. Thanks in advance, even if you say no. Just thought I'd ask.

Please do!
Happy 15th birthday, Alyssa!  I'd be honored if you'd add me to your friends list, as I just added you to mine.  (I always add people when they add me, but you're the first person who ever asked permission to add me... that was too considerate of you.  *big smiles*)  Looks like Now 4 Ever's User Infonow4ever is a friend we both share... and perhaps that's how you found me.  Thanks for the compliments on my layout, by the way.  :)

I hope your day is filled with excitement, joy, and much Final Fantasy X as well.  To help with that, I've uploaded a couple of animated icons to my Web site.  I can't remember where I found 'em, but you're more than welcome to use 'em if you'd like.  One's Yuna, the other is Yunalesca.  Be sure to download both of them if you like them, then upload 'em to your AOL Web site to use 'em.

If I can help you more in the future, please don't hesitate to let me know.  :)
