Well, life has been boring.

Was home sick on Thursday and Friday. Watched movies. Titan.A.E. and Treasure Planet rock my socks.

Gonna cut my prety long hair hair short-short. Because I can.

Started writing a ficlet to fuflill a request for xanthos_samurai (request is here).

Realized how totally hot John Rzeznik is and fell in love with him all over again.

Downloaded a volume and a half of the awsome manga Rin! until the downloads cut out. I can't download anything at the moment, and damnit, I wanted to know what happens next. Gonna see if I can get the next chapter off Lori.

Found a pile of songs I have fallen in love with and badly wnat to download.

Going shopping with my sister tomorrow.

I miss Matthew, Amber, and for some completely unknown reason my ex-friend Amelia.

And now, you people can have some lyrics which are not mine but belong to Bliss.

Oh, oh, oh.
Take the path of least resistance
To the great unknown
No directory assistance
Now you're on your own
If you're looking for a new world
Just open up your eyes
Because it's

Not Quite Paradise
But it sure feels like home
Not quite paradise
We can rent to own
It'll be all right
No it's not quite...

Tomorrows an illusion
Yesterdays a dream
Today is a solution
But you've got to let it be
And if you're looking for the answer
It's right before your eyes
Although it's

Not Quite Paradise
But it sure looks like home
Not quite paradise
We are not alone
It'll be all right though it's not quite...

Somewhere from the edge of time
When the poets die the words
don't rhyme I'll call you up and say
We made it okay
Somewhere in the back of your mind
When you see your demons come to life
And the world just fades away
You'll know it's okay
Oh, oh oh
It's gonna be okay
Oh, oh oh

But it's not quite paradise
But it sure feels like home
(Not quite paradise) Make this place our own
(Not quite paradise) We can rent to own
(Not quite paradise) We don't have to be alone
(Not quite paradise)

Not Quite Paradise - Bliss - The Titan.A.E. soundtrack

Well, my day was rather boring. We had school photo's this morning, which sucked, as usual. And mum says I need to get an ID card as well because otherwise I'm going to have to pay full fare for buses and such because I look older than fourteen, so I'm hoping my portarit shot won't look too bad.

Dorothy, our wonderful elderly next-door neighbour, gave me a card and $20 today, which was very nice of her, even if it was a few weeks late. She also gave Stephie a card too, but only $10, because it's her birthday today. So we went over and said our thank you's and Stef gave her the last three of her chocolates she got for today.

It was Cassie's party on Saturday, so she took me to the Canberra Show which was awsome and then I slept over. On Sunday morning we went shopping for anime stuff in Civic, and I had $40 on me so I bought the first two Angel Sanctuary volumes (because yet again they didn't have vol. 3 of FAKE in stock) and she bought... Hmmm, four "No Need for Tenchi!"  one dollar comics, actual comic-comic's though, and then she got five? InuYasha DVD's. And then we went next door to Kim's Groceries and I got a box of pocky and some strawberry-cream chewy lollies. Then her dad picked us up and we spent the rest of the day lazing around the house with her youger brothers Jack and Callum (who are totally awsome for 11 and 9 year olds), watching her new InuYasha DVD's, pouring over the manga her sister gave her and then Jack, Calum and I spent a while teasing Cassie because we have all the spoilers for Fullmetal Alchemist and she doesn't know so she kept trying to guess who died.

Oh! And Jack and Cal called me "Califa" the entire time, which was cool because it meant I had another nickname to add to my long list of them, because I looked like a character from their favourite anime. Califa from One Piece... Anyone know her?

And this friday night I've been invited for another sleepover, this time for Shellfish's birthday. Unfortuantely I agreed to come last night and today Lori invited me to her house for the weekend... So I had to say no, which was sad.

Also, once I've posted this I'm going to ask my comic store to ship in volumes 3 and 4 of FAKE for me. Yay.

And the rest of this post I'm gonna fake-cut, kay? 'Cause it's gackted stuff and quizz results.

Hello all.

I was going to post a massive rant here and then sulk a bit, but then Ama turned her messenger status back to online, and after talking to her I feel much better. I need to keep away from Amelia when she's in a bad mood, because she gets so catty and just plain nasty and says things that she always ends up apologising for. But she's always in bad moods these days...

Anyway, thank god for Ama's.

Oh! You see my icon? I made it, isn't i great? The image is from a scanlation of a doujinshi. Hah hah, Jou/Mokuba.

I found this gorgeous picture of Suguru Fujisaki of Gravitation (the two DVD set of which I recently aquired - From eBay) while I was surfing the net. It screamed to have the "Bitch please" added, so I resized and did so. Not very sophisticated or anything and my first atempt at an icon, but I love it so. Take if you want, but credit and coment please.

Sunburn and School [15 Dec 2005|04:43pm]
[ mood | Anything loved can be lost ]

I'm sunburnt. Yep. For, like, the first time ever, I am really suburnt. Its really painful, all over my shoulders and down my arms, on upper back... It's stinging and my bra is cutting into and making it hurt more. It's been activities week for the last few days, and I was at Philip Swiming and Ice-Skating center today. I got burnt while I was in the pool.

Tali didn't get asked out by Yarren, because he couldn't work up enough courage to talk to her even though he'd said he was planning to on Thursday. Oh well, he's blown his chance for this year. School ends tomorrow and Tali's not coming - She's going shopping with Nicolet and Rachel instead. Ha. Which is kind of a shame because Tali really likes Yarren actually... And I was toatlly looking forward to the whole protective best friend who would rip his spine out if he ever made her cry for any reason other than her own stupidity. Not to say she's stupid. In fact, shes quite smart. She just acts stupid most of the time.

Also, we got our final reports today. I caught Rachels as it was falling off the railing and took a chunk out of my finger.. But that has nothing to do with my grades. Heres what I got, A being top mark, C being average, E being lowest. But we don't exactly have "failing grades"

Physical Education - D
Music - A
Art - A
Maths - C
English - E (-I cannot believe I got an E in english. It was one of the only three classes I actually tried in! I wanted an A...)
Australian Studies - D
Science - B

And I got a merit (top-of-the-class) award in art. Yay.

Ouch. My sunburn is fucking killing me, so I'll shut up and go read something happy.

Merry Christmas.

God, I miss Matthew...

I am... [28 Nov 2005|04:08pm]
[ mood | Insanity prevails! ]

Just the two things I found on</a></b></a>serenia I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage.

I am the girl who kisses her girlfriend on the sidewalk and laughs at those who glare.

We are the couple who planned and studied and got a damn good lawyer and BEAT the state that wanted to take our child away.

We are the ones who took martial arts classes and carry pepper spray and are just too dangerous to gay bash.

I am the transgender person who uses the bathroom that suits me, and demands that any complaining staff explain their complaint to my face in front of the entire restaurant -- and shares with my other trans friends which restaurants don't raise a stink.

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.

And two:

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away
from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I
wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess.
I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in
another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore,
nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now
live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor
who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they
found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much
better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Please repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.

[ mood | artistic ]

Just a really short entry to tell you how crap my day was.

First, I overslept. My bus gets to my bustop at 8:40 and leaves 30 seconds later. I woke up at 8:30. So then, after stumbling around and getting dressed and such, I flicked on the computer and looked up bus routes. I ended up catching a 36 (that leaves from across the street). But you know what? We got to dickson and the frickin' thing broke down. As in, engine cut out, radio wasn't working properly, not-going-to-start-again-anytime-today. Other passengers got off and walked, or went across the street and caught other buses into the city. I rang Carmen and she told me to sit tight and wait for the next bus. I waited for 35 minutes before it turned up.

I got off a few minutes walk away from civic, and had to walk the ten minutes to school. I spent the entire time glaring at the overcast sky and telling it to stop threatening me and just rain already. It spat in my face a few times but didn't rain. It took another five minutes to get to the school administration office. I got there at 10:35, halfway through seccond period. And of course, in second period I had a maths test. A really important maths test. As in, worth 20% of my grade maths test, which I really need to pass because I'm currently failing. I went to class and my teacher, Mrs Hutchinson told me to sit out the front of the class next to Katie, who'd also turned up late, and read or something. So I have to do the maths test next week instead. You know what ALL of my friends talked about for the REST of the day? THE MATHS TEST!!

Next up was english. I was supposed to give a speech on hero's, as was the rest of the class. But I didn't have it as I haven't written it. And I made a promise to Mrs Beaver I'd have it in tomorrow. Which is a BLATENT LIE. This speech is worth 10% of my grade, which I need if I'm going to get into advanced english next year.

It rained. Rather than rain on me when I wanted it to, it rained all lunch, thusly forcing me and my friends to Mr Mac's science lab. But Then I couldn't even do that as Lori and co. wanted me to practice our music performance. I stuck around for ten minutes then went back to Mr Mac's lab. That was now boring. I went to the library to find my other friends. The table they were sitting at was over crowded as was the rest of the library. I gave up and went to wait for the bell to ring outside my next class.

Next class was Australian tudies, another class I'm failing. We were supposed to do speeches in there too, from the point of view of a convict or soilder from the first fleet. Didn't have that either. But, when I do finish that, and I think I will, I'll post it on fiction press.

Then was science. We spent the whole class writing notes and I found out that we have a test on monday. Crap. But we also found out that Mr Harriot's going to be a dad! Wich is just so exciting because he'll make an awsome dad and he really deserves it.

I can't be stuffed to write more about school. I'm currently trying to colour this http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/18847070/ which was inspired by http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2054065/1/

Well, that'll do.

[ mood | sick ]

I'm home sick today.

Have you noticed how many of my journal entries start like that? This seems to be the one thing I do whenever I'm sick. But, for once I'm not updating for Ama. I'm updating becuase I'm bored.

Anyway, I'm home sick today, but I've actually done interesting stuff! I was lying in bed reading, when in comes Carmen--

Wait, I'll back up.I haven't explained who Carmen is nor why she's here yet, have I? Well, my parents have gone on holliday to New Zealand for the next week and a bit, and my eighteen year old cousin Carmen is "babysitting" myself and my sisters.

Well anyay, in Comes Caremn and she sits on the edge of my bed. She lives on the coast and is going to schoolies as shes finished her final year of school, but she's forgoten to send in a form, and if she doesn't get it in she won't be able to get into her own building. She's filled it out, but she still needs a passport sized photo for it. So we go into Civic.
We spent a while looking around until we found the post office. They said to go down the street to a photography place. They take Carmens picture. Then we go back up the street to the post office, and Carmen gets an enevlope and stuff to mail it, while I read farside comics. Then we went to sanity and listened to the Rouge Traders, The Veronicas and Blink 182. Then we went to McDonalds.
Oh god, I hadn't been to McDonalds in ages. It tastes sooo good.
Then we caught a bus home, and now I'm sitting here typing this up.

Also, on Friday through to Sunday I was at Jennifers house for her birthday party. We spent the time eating junk food watching movies: The Emperor's New Groove, Dogma, The Silence of the Lambs, the old version of The Amityville Horror (crap), Feardotcom, The Faculty and Devils Prey. Francis and Beccy came on Friday like me and stayed for the entire weekend, I left on Sunday afternoon, Tali, Mehgayn and Bea all came on Sunday.

Seeing as Bea and Mehgayn scare so easily, we made this plan. They would watch Jeepers Creepers on Sunday night, and then at a really scary bit get Jen's sister to turn off the power. Just before she did that though, Jen would go outside to call Fern (dog) inside. Then she'd try and get back in when the power turned out but the door would be locked. Then she'd scream a few times whilst running the hair braiding thing, which sounds like a drill, and then she'd squirt some of the "blood" we'd made earlier under the door. Everyone would pretend to be all scared, except Tali, who'd be all sceptical. "There's nothing out there guys. Jen and -insert sisters name here as I forget it- are just pulling a prank on you." No one would believe her and try to convince her that it was really happening, and she'd open the curtains and point out the light over near the front door. "See, there's a torch." Then Bec would point out that "jen didn't take a torch..." Which she hadn't as it had been planted. Tali would sigh, then open the curtains again. The Light would be gone, but -sister- face would be peering in the window. Tali would scream and pretend it was someone elses face and close the curtain quickly. When everone asked what she'd say "A face... In the window." Francis would open the curtains again, but the face would be gone. Instead there'd be some light shining on the footpath and there would be bloody footprints on the pavment (also placed there earlier). Then Francis would go over and try to unlock the door, but find it "stuck" then step in the "blood" and scream. Then Jen would walk in with an alien mask on and weilding a knife.

Only problems with this were: a)Jen felt sick so swapped places with Francis. Jen can't scream or act as well as Francessa can. Our Francis is going to be a famous actor one day...

But I digress.

b) Fern had been let in earlier so Francis had to come up with one on the spot. I don't quite know what she said.
c) The hair braider was missing.
d) Mehgayn almost decapitated herself by almost running into the knife.
e) They forgot to put any "blood" on the knife.
f) I wasn't there to see it ;___________;

Eh, that'll do for an entry for now. Later.

I have five minutes spare at the end of my science lesson, which is now. We're in the computer lab, I'm bored out of my mind and I've decided that I should update and appease Ama.

Nothing much has happened since my last update, nothing interesting to report...

Well, I'm working on a few oneshots as the hollidays start in a few days and as I have no homework I can update my fan fiction. But first I have two requests to fill (Ama and Amelia), a birthday fic for Amelia and just a present for Fated-Shadows.

Gah. And I have all this manga stored on the computer that I'm going to work through later (Naruto and Death Note).

This weekend is the start of the school hollidays and for the first few days we're going down the coast. My uncle's turning 50. Keh. He's so old now.

Well, the bell for lunch is about to ring, so I'd better sign off.

Updating again. Yes, Ama is forcing me into it again.

Anyway, I went shopping on thursday, in Civic. Fianlly found somewhere that sells pocky. I got two boxes of the chocolate flavoured ones (srawberry are better) but I only ended up eating one and a half. Tali and Zoe begged until I gave them the rest. And I got the first volume of Eerie Queerie, and a Emily the Strange button which is pinned to my school bag.

And... yesterday I stayed home sick. Slept in, played my Wham album on repeat, watched Galaxy Quest, watched Mezzo DSA, slept, watched TV, listened to the radio, watched 10 Things I Hate About You. I love that movie. And Heath Ledger. Or however you spell his name.

And today I'm planning on going to Dickson for a while. And that is my life up to this moment.

[10 Aug 2005|11:38am]
[ mood | calm ]

Uh... Ama is making me update again. And I've finally remember what it was that actually happened to me.

Friday night was Tali's birthday party. We had pizza and watched Meet the Fockers, which was better than I expected. Saturday, still Tali's party, so we went shopping. I got volume one of Gravition and this really nice white jacket with silver chinese on the front. I have no idea what it says though... >.>

Then on Sunday, I went shopping with my family. The first thing we did was head up to the food court. I got an iced chocolate from Donut King and some mannaged to knock it over. It went on the floor, the chair, the table, my arms and, of course, my jeans. And then my dad started laughing cause he thought it was really funny. And I cried and drank the centimeter left that I mannaged to save. I was really thirsty, the drink was expensive and I paid for it myself and then they wouldn't buy me another one!

After sitting there for ten minutes with this mess all around me and drying on my skin and clothing, mum finished her coffee and took my down to K-mart where she bought me a pair of kahiki pants. They were pretty cool, but I was still sticky...

And we continued shopping. Got dad some birthday presents. Mannaged to con mum into buying me a Powderfinger album. Vulture Street, and I've been playing it almost non-stop since I got it. I love the song Sunsets.

And that's my life basicly. Oh, and Ama and I have started a fiction project. www.fictionpress.com/~LiNes

Ama is forcing me to write in here. 'S not fair as my life is far to boring to be put on paper, let alone stored in computer, but here I am. Well, I suppose a quick summary of my holidays is in order.

Jess did sleep over, Batman is one of the best movies ever, we went to a town called Mildura, in Victoria. We did stuff there. Dude, so many oranges, and the vinyards! @-@

Okay, recap done. Now Ama, says if I can't think of anything to write, to make a list of why I hate my anime/manga suppliers.

Why Alice hates....


1. They're so slow when it comes to releasing stuff in Australia. Not fair damnit!
2. You can only get anime soundtracks if you find a deal where they come with a box set. And I can't buy box sets (see reason 3).
3. Damned expensive.
4. Can't find their manga anywhere except online.
5. They change their websit layout just when I get the hang of the old one.


1. They just SUCK!
2. They do the impossible transformations of cigeretes into lolipops, wine into grapejuice.
3. They edit the above but leave in all the violence.
4. They use the crappiest voice actors.
5. They edit the plot so it doesn't frighten the kiddies. But leave in half the violence.


1. They keep stuffing up the translations.
2. They can't make up their mind. Original Japanese formatting or not. Choose one and leave it in that format for the series damn it! Not book one in English format, book 2 in Japanese....! XP
3. Whats with the big red bit with the logo down the side. It used to be this little white thing, almost untoicable. Not it's just an eyesore.
4. Remakes. How many versions of the one thing can you make? Just as bad as Viz, if not worse.
5. I can't think of anything else, but I'm being consistant and having 5 reasons, so I'll just say "They aren't publishing Angel Sanctuary, they're leaving it for Viz, but I can't get Viz stuff!"

There. Happy now Ama? *glares*

Aww, I can't stay mad at you. *pounce, headlock and hair ruffle* Back to the Drake/JJ stuff. Dirrrrty thoughts. Dirrrty minded plotbunnies @_@ ^-^

Last day of school! [01 Jul 2005|05:01pm]
[ mood | I can meet my deadlines! ]

Today was the last day of school for term two, semester one, and it was a bludge day. Yay! Well, actually, it started off pretty crappy. Slept in, almost missed the bus, had to take my pocket money for lunch. First period we had health. We normally have it in one of the empty science labs, so we went in and started taking down chair. Now, most of them are harmless and made of plastic, but I was taking down one of the metal and plastic ones, and I cut my wrist on the bottom. I mean, seriously! How do you cut yourself on a CHAIR?!

Then our teacher, Mr Harriet came in and told us that as most of the class wasn't there it wasn't big enough to teach and we were going to the gym. So off to the gym we trudge. While the assorted teachers marked the rolls of assorted classes, my friend Jess and I were playing tag. I went to tag her on the shoulder and my hand slipped down her arm. Her watch is broken and has a spiky bit poking out of it. Naturally, my finger caught on it. So now I have a three millimeter deep scratch in my finger. And because of the damned school rules they couldn't even give me some antiseptic for it, just a couple of bandaids.

So I'm sitting there trying to open the bandaids with one hand as I had the other in my mouth, when in walks my friend Zoe, late as usual and here to sign in. She see's me with my finger in my mouth and the torn bandaid packets in my lap and grins. 'Shit Al! What did ya do this time. Sicisors again?' She exclaims, refering to the incident a few years back that involved a VERY sharp pair of sicisors, alot of blood and my right thumb. She signs in, comes over and puts the bandaids on for me. And then its back to the gym where I spend the next 40 minutes standing on the sidelines as the mixed classes play dogeball.

Second period, Food Studies. After Mrs Wolfhagen (Pronounced Hargen) lets us in, we spend 10 minutes sitting around as she hunts for the keys to the computer lab she booked us into. I spend the time talking movies with Jess and Leah and then listening to Good Charlotte with Zoe on her diskman. Eventually Mrs W finds the keys and we get to the computer lab. We answer the questions she gave us on the board and then got to surf the net for the next half an hours. I spent most of the time teaching Zoe how to use Windows Media Player, such as burning, making playlists, for which she then called me a smartarse (Thats a compliment from her). And then I showed her how to get a background on her computer.

Recess, inside 'cause it was raining AGAIN! Bought a hot-dog and a hot chocolate choc chip muffin. Glad I brought money for lunch rather than a home packed one. Hotdog was good, but when I went to open the muffin Tali snatched it off me. Or tried to at least. I didn't let go, the packaging broke and it fell. I caught it just before it hit the ground, but melted chocolate is really hot. I went off at her and she cowered and gave me the puppy dog eyes. I thought I had worked up a resistance to over the years (I mean, I had to to be able to survive primary school with Zoe and Aiden) but I melted and forgave her. Then she mannaged to scab half the muffin. Don't knwo how she does it.

Third period, double Metal Technology. Again, the gym. I spent the lesson finishing my book (Guitar Highway Rose) and then watching Melissia try (and fail) to teach Beccy some of her dance moves. Melissia does dance classes after school and she's really good at it. Then lunch, spent it reading Dolly magzines in the library and pointing out all the horrible clothes celebrities seem to wear to Francis and Tali.

Maths next. Spent the lesson playing games. Battleship (Jen won) and Connect four (Jen won twice, I won three times, Jen cheated. Won against the teacher once, tied once). Then ANOTHER combined class, three English classes in the one room. Wtahced the ending of The Labyrinth. I love David Bowie in that, he actually looks good in it. You know, aside from those grey (tight) pants. Bell goes, caught the 449 into Dickson and went to the library. Returned Chobits(disk four) and Undertow, picked up Cardcaptor Sakura(first manga), FLCL(first disk), Angelic Layer(seventh disk), The Grim Grotto(Series of unfortunate events) and Ark Angel(Alex Rider). Came home, played with dog, wrote up this.

Tomorrow Dad, Steve, Matthew and I are going to see Batman Begins. It's supposed to be really good, so I hope it is. Oh, and Jess might be sleeping over. Maybe. Anyway, thats today.
