Alice in Wonderland!!!

I just finished watching Alice in Wonderland (2010), and I must say it was amazing. I loved it. The oddities, the bright colors, the points made...it's great! We even got some discussion in on the original writer of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) My mother told me he was believed to also be 'somewhat crazy', which didn't surprise me. I have no idea why Alice in Wonderland appeals to me...it's so WEIRD. But something about it calls out to a part of me that loves those weird things.

Also, I think the lines...

The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
[Alice checks Hatter's temperature]
Alice Kingsley: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

I think I know a few 'Mad Hatter's. ;)

Magpies and Eccles Cakes


Beautiful, clean song. Peaceful, clean video. Very, very nicely done. I love the Smittens. :3

So, this week we were on a tech ban. No computers or movies or TV for five days. Trust me, by day two I thought I was going to DIE of boredom...but by today, I feel pretty good about it. I was able to clear my head of all the confusion that I seem to experience when I spend too much time on the computer...I DID miss my friend's comic updates, but hey, when I came back there were TWO pages instead of one!!!! YES! lol I also was able to focus more on Christ than other things...I can make an idol out of socializing.

 Only problem is is that I have tried TWICE to start writing a story, but have been unable to! And it's been the SAME story! I almost want to give up! I can't get the story out and I'm too tired to draw anything. hahahah, but that is where my stubbornness comes in. NO WAY am I giving up on writing something. XD

Happy (Belated) White Day!!!!


White Day is celebrated in Japan. (And Korea)...but I'm sure that this White Day was not as wonderful as White Days past. Please, PLEASE be in prayer for the Japanese! Since prayer is powerful, and it is all I can do at present, I am praying hard! Please pray as well.

Also...I think I'm going to go off FB for a while again...can't stand the headaches of social networking and all the teen dramas my friends have been having recently are making it difficult to do anything on FB. Anyways, enjoy my posts on here and my blog color changes, if you like.

All the best,

Slow moving...

So, DST has me all mixed up today! >.< Had a good time talking with my friend-We're going to do a photo shoot together next time we meet! I'm excited. XD

I'm listening to the song What If by Safetysuit lately..can't say anything for the group, since I haven't listened to any of their other songs, but 'What If' is really touching when set to Itachi and Sasuke...also, it reminds me of certain friendships.
They do want something that makes you sad...something that might be dangerous, even if it's for the good of others, but still...you can't help but feel sad. The prospect of losing contact with them, or actually losing them, is scary.

At least it's good to know that we can always call upon the Lord! ^.^

No matter what, He does hear prayers! I always am comforted when I realize that. So very often I have fears that I'm going to be alone oneday, without anyone to help me or be friends with me, no one to talk my troubles over with, and no shoulders to cry on. But I know that...
6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.-Psalm 86 KJV (Sermon was on Psalm 86 today, btw!)

And 2...He IS my Friend. My greatest Friend. :) And worrying like that is simply selfish. Yes, I said it!!! O.O The 'S' word!!! lol But seriously! Worrying about ME being alone and all by myself isn't thinking about others...there are a lot of people right now that are very lonely.

So I take comfort in that. Doesn't change the fact that I love the song! >.<  Ah, serious note. Do be in prayer for the Japanese...this has been devastating! I pray that through this, though, they would come to realize who rules this universe, and who commands the waters. They really need Him. 

Well, today was really, really warm....I am almost convinced that Spring will actually eventually peek out from under Winter and show it's pretty face. Until then...on the warm days, I'll put on a short-sleeved shirt and dance in the sun, and on the cold ones I'll grab some hot chocolate and my ever-warm netbook...sometimes I worry that he's overheating or something because we both generate so much warmth..between us, ain't no cold we cannot defeat! :P

Ahem. If you read this post, thanks. :) You have been awarded the badge of tolerating......a very bouncy thought-process, to say the least!

I was sure by now...

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

[Chorus 2x]

This song...makes me cry. Yes, it does. But when it started to 'rain' a while back...I heard the chorus of this song going through my head. Yes, again, I did cry. But...the peace that God gives me from this is...awesome. Just purely awesome.
 Finally (I don't have that much to say right now...haha) The lines-
 I lift my eyes unto the hills
 Where does my help come from?
 My help comes from the Lord
 The Maker of Heaven and Earth

 are really nice in there. Verses from the Word of God are ALWAYS comforting!

Young Justice Rant

 (This rant is about Young Justice, the new superhero show on Cartoon Network. I know absolutely nothing about the real Justice League so if you're a fanatic...this is about Young Justice, which isn't based on any comics and is about the 'sidekicks' of the Justice League members, not the members themselves)

Well, I think anyone who's watching this show knows about Superboy. Since he is really one of those dark handsome boys that is bound to intrigue everyone, I decided to rant about him first.
 So far, in the show, his history is thus-He was created by Cadmus via DNA stolen from Superman. Within a 16 week period he was formed, with Geognomes force-feeding information about the world that he would eventually come to live in.
 No parents.
 No family.
 Unless of course you count old Superman...and I'll stop because from there on out things get really weird.
 It's obvious he got his personality from his 'father'. Dark, brooding, slightly masochistic when he needs to be...he's just waiting for some poor girl to come along and put her all into drawing out that little sunshine she sees in his rare smiles. Now, is it just me, or is he just terribly ROMANTIC?!?!? XD He's the perfect romance novel character! He's got a past that's (somehow) hurt him, no family (oh really?), and absolutely no one to comfort him (well, he would if he'd only stop being such a monastic). Reality is in the parentheses, people!
 Though as a character, I do like Superboy. He has some real depth. It's just that his character will need a little more work to please me completely. His type is just a bit cliche, though I tend to find some good things about them. When he does finally come out of his dark phase, I hope he stays nice and quiet. I really like how shy he is. >.<
 I do with Miss Martian wouldn't waste her time on him, though...
As for Superman's place in all this, I wish he would step up to the plate. I never knew a Superman that was this duty-shirking and it drives me crazy. Putting myself in his shoes, I would be a little weirded out that this 'son' had been created without me even knowing or having any involvement in it, but that doesn't excuse the fact that he now has an obligation to teaching this boy what he needs to know so that he might, eventually, become a replacement. You have to plan ahead for the future be you from Krypton or not.

So that is my rant. Next week, after the newest episode of YJ, I guess I'll be doing another rant. And if at all possible, this time I shall write about Robin...who throughout time has never ceased to be somehow on my favorites list....
