Last night we had a combined birthday party for Lara and Alison, and I made them a cake. BEHOLD!

To be fair, Woot made the actual cake itself since I was just doing to make a flat one but he decided 3D was the way to go. I really didn't think it was going to survive - you can't tell but it's on an impressive lean. It was delcious though and you can tell it's meant to be a Tardis so that's all that matters really. (The both of them are big Who fans, obviously. I only like old Who but I liked making the cake!)

Tomorrow (except it's today now because it's gone 5am) I have an appointment with a dental specialist to talk about a wisdom tooth. I need to get it removed but it turns out that the root is wrapped around the nerve or something so the dentist point blank said he wouldn't take it out. Which... fun. The appointment tomorrow is $200 and that's just for an x-ray and the guy telling me what I can do about it. I dread to think how much the actual removal is going to cost. It literally makes me whole body tense up just thinking about it. (The tooth I got pulled the other week only cost me $140 and I honestly almost cried with relief in the dentist chair.)

Money stress! Everyone loves money stress! I am currently earning $30 under what my rent is which is not at all stressful and making me constantly worried - who would worry about such a thing as that! The current reason for my lack of funds is actually a bit ridiculous - it's because I got a job. I was working a temporary typing position and since I'm on a government benefit I had to declare that money. Which would be all fine and dandy but the job paid fortnightly and the benefit pays weekly, and if you don't declare your earnings every week they have to fine you for it. But if I declared it by the week then I would have a week in between where I had no money whatsoever. Fun, right?

But I'm not working that job anymore and hopefully the next one I find will be weekly! (Not that jobs are exactly easy to find right now. Christchurch being earthquake city it's kind of difficult to find jobs unless you're in the construction business. That one is booming!)

It's my birthday in two weeks-ish and Lara made me put together a list of things I wanted that she could pick from. The list turned out to be all books and comic-related things. I'm rather predictable. (If I was her I'd just pick whichever thing was cheapest. I'm not really fussed about getting presents but she enjoys giving them.)

Speaking of comic books, I went to the Armageddon Expo a few weeks back, which is the geeky sci-fi/fantasy/comics/anime etc etc event we have here each year. It's not exactly ComicCon but we're a wee little place so I suppose that's fair. I even made a costume this year

Am I not the spitting image of Jean Grey? (After she'd eaten all the other X-Men, obviously.)

Further comic book ramblings: CAPTAIN AMERICA 2: WINTER SOLDIER. Holy shit, Winter Soldier SO EXCITE! It was pretty obvious from the first movie that they were going to eventually bring Bucky back and do the whole Winter Soldier in some way, but still I'm excited by the confirmation! All I need is Bucky/Natasha, you guys. IT'S ALL I WANT IN THIS WORLD. Please please please let me have my comic book true loves on screen! I know it's not likely since Avengers was really setting up Black Widow/Hawkeye as the pairing but BLACK WIDOW/WINTER SOLDIER THEY ARE THE MOST BESTEST LOVERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. (Or, at least, in comics. No comic relationship is better... except for Carol Danvers/Jessica Drew - shh! It's real! Shut up!)

Lara and I are both really excited for Silent Hill 2 as well. In my case I don't know why since I am terrible at horror movies! And having now watched the trailer I have even less doubt of my ability to actually make it through the movie without crying in fear. Terrible at horror movies! Atrocious! And yet... want. We're going to go to the movies to see it: this is a Bad Idea. The last horror movies I saw at the cinema were House on Haunted Hill and Thirteen Ghosts, both of which still sort of haunt my memory to this day. So... yeah... cool.

It's started raining. This means busing to appointment adventures in the rain. Always fun!

I'm really looking forward to silent hill 2.

You went to see a movie with Matthew Lilliard (13 ghosts) at the cinema. Where you paid for it?! ;)

That cake is super awesome! Way cool. :)

And you as JG looked bloody gorge. Love the outfit and ooh your hair looks sl shiny and strokable (in a non creeper way...)

The trailer makes me want to hide behind my pillow forever. And there's no way Sean Bean is making it out of this one alive with his track record.

I was sixteen! It seemed like a good idea at the time! (Although, to be completely truthful? I totally love Matthew Lillard, ever since Scream.)

It was tasty too! Took a bit of work to cut through the near-impenetrable layer of icing though.

Thank you! My hair was being all well-behaved that day!

It was SUCH a tasty cake too! Delicious!

Thank you! It had to be straightened to make it not massive, but it looked good on the day :)

If it makes you feel any better I always got the Hawkeye/Natasha Vibe as just friends that really knew each other well.

I don't do well at horror flicks either. The silent hill games freak me out especially the whole pyramid head and his rapely tendencies on the nurses. It's f-ed up.

I think it can be read either way, but they would work as a couple in the movie if they go that way with it. Movie!Clint is very similar in some ways to comic!Bucky (Although I'm more annoyed by the fact that they're now trying to break up Bucky and Natasha in the comics and get her with Clint to appeal to the movie market. Not cool, writers. Not cool at all.)

There's still a bit in the first Silent Hill movie I can't watch even though I've seen it quite a few times now. Lara and I watched it last week and I was all "I won't look away at this scene this time! Lara! Watch me be brave! I'm looking! I'm looki- HOLY FUCK OH GOD I CAN'T LOOK I CAN'T LOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKK!" So... bit of a fail there. But I love the game too - I've only played the second one though. I always have to stop for ages though because I hate the puzzle parts because I'm rubbish at puzzles. I just want to run around the creepy town killing things, dammit!

(I'd reply to this with my dancing pyramid head icon but, alas, it's inactive!)

Was it the part where pyramid head ripped the skin off that woman? Cause that always makes me cringe. I actually owned the last movie and sold it because it freaked me out so.much.

Thirteen Ghosts also freaks me out, but that runs into my 'creative movie' stack. I kind of loved how each ghost had a history and background and was different. That was a pretty unique flick.

Nope, it's the bit in the bathroom with that crawling guy. CANNOT DEAL WITH IT. Even the sounds he makes freak me the fuck out! (I don't like the bits right at the end with the barbwire either but that's more of a 'ew this is gross, I'll make tea until it's done' instead of 'HOLY SHIT I WILL NEVER GET THIS IMAGE OUT OF MY HEAD AGAIN :O' )

Thirteen Ghosts freaked me out so bad. I don't know if I'd actually find it scary anymore but after seeing it at the cinema I spent the next year terrified to leave my room in the middle of the night.
