So tonight's episode of Avatar was creepier than usual...

Sooooo creepy.

Nazi Germany
So apparently Ba Sing Se is actually Nazi Germany. No seriously. They're hypnotizeing the people into believing that there is not War going on. They say it's to keep the city in a state of calm...but really, I don't think that's all...I mean...I don't think the king even *knows* that there is a war. And then there's all the emphasis on "culture." totally sounds like these people may be guilty of genocide. For instance...they have the poor people living in the walled off bits of the city, far from the sight of the actual city of Ba Sing Se...afterall, these peolpe are actually refugees from other nations, not Earth Kingdom residents. Hmm...gee...this sounds a LOT like the ghettos used by Hitler to keep the Jews seperate from everyone else. How much you want to bet that Long Fang is going to slowly weed them out of existance? The walls enclosing them just seem to get closer and closer until they're all crushed to death, perhaps. I also wonder if maybe they see Toph's Kingdom as seperate from their culture...kind of like Eastern and Western Germany. Because really, she isn't getting any real special treatment with her family seal.

The King
Anyone else notice how you coudln't get a really good look at the king? We think that he may have actually been a fake because there is no actual King...or a decoy because no one knows that the king is actually a child. Or, the most popular...he's the king, but they keep him hypnotized and under their control, because he is, afteral he is a "god to the people." It seems a lot like the Queen (or maybe it was the Dutchess, I can't remember right now) in Trinity Blood.

The Bear
There has got to be more significance with the fact the bear is merely a bear. I know, I know, maybe I'm just reading too much into it, but really, nothing in this show is what it seems on the surface. Why would this ONE animal be the ONLY animal in the series to NOT be a hybrid? I mean really, even the characters, who until recently, never pointed out that every animal was a combo, thought that this was weird. And the bear itself seems...special. a "rides the short bus" kind of way, lol. All of our theories on him are kinda up in the air at the moment.

Blades of Blue Flame seems that perhaps there was blue flame comming off of Zuko's swords during his fight with Jet. We're not sure, because it could have been wind. I'm going to need to see this part a few more times. However, if it WAS blue flame...does this mean he's getting stronger? Maybe tapping into a new part of himself that will help fight against Azula?

Ok, I think I covered the most important things...

Pictures for you all

Been a while since I last posted, I know. Things have been kind of busy lately with class, work, plans for RenFair, and hanging out with people. The air has cooled down considerably and it's starting to smell like Fall. You have no idea how happy this makes me!

I also managed to snag some pics. They're in black and white for a change ^^;

Fairy Ring

Hats McGills


That last one is a bit blurry...I need to go back and try to take pics when I'm not in a hurry to get to class XD

Tears Are Wasted in the Rain

I just went running through sprinklers at 12:30am with Imani.

Today was pretty good until work time. I wasn't late waking up and I had a pretty good breakfast. Then I went to Japanese and was spazzing a bit over our upcomming test (mainly because I'll have to study extra hard on top of writing a paper for English). Then Nutrition went well because, though I don't pay a lick of attention in class, or do the readings, I still felt very confident in my answers. Then I went to the library and spent my extra free 45 minutes reading. It seems as though right after I finished reading and went through the aggravation of my eyes not wanting to focus, my mood bottomed out.

It had nothing to do with the subject of the book (Memoirs of a Geisha), or anything else it seemed. After chatting with Karen and Timothy, I made my way to the back office. I was greated by an excited (but not *happy*) Jacci who wanted me to clock in so she could rant. After the gernal hustle and bustle of first getting to work, I settled down to work on Blue Sheets (our way of checking attendence) and then my mood dropped again. This time it was different though, instead of just kinda mopey, my head felt really heavy and I really, really wanted to cry.

This all seemed to be for no reason. It wasn't until dinner that a thought occured to me: Fairy Tales aren't real.

Ok, yes...this sounds realy really dumb...but it's what popped into my head. I realized that I've been virtually drowning myself lately in stories about knights and princes (and the occasional chairman), who rescue a Princess from whatever. Even in The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. Granted she's forced into a few years of sexual slavery, it's all in her best interest as a world leader (it's an interesting concept), and she *is* rescued in many ways, both from the curse and from herself.

My head has been full of this kind of stuff (aside from the sexual slavery thing) since I was little, which is normal for little girls. But I've never seemed to have accepted the fact that these things can't happen in real life. I will never have a prince or knight save me from anything. I'll have to do that myself. I will never have a strong man sweep me up into his arms and carry me for any distance. I'd be lucky if he could even let me lean on him with a sprained ankel.

And thinking thus, my mood has not improved. I'm going to log off the internets (all of them), and work on my English homeworks.

So like...I think I'm single now...

Expect voice mails from me soon, cuz I'm getting a new phone tomorrow, and due to several complications, I'll have a new phone number.


Oh and his reason for not calling on my birthday....he hadn't even noticed that it was pased.

He totally and absolutely forgot that my birthday was even in August.
