2-0 Canada vs. US in the second period! WOO!

Yesterday was a great day for Canadian athletes! (particularly the men!) Three golds in one day! I unfortunately missed the men’s snowboard parallel giant slalom and the speed skating men’s team pursuit but I was able to watch the men’s curling and that was a great game. Go Canada!

Last Friday was my mom’s birthday so my sister in California sent her some ‘flower’s from Edible Arrangements!
I’d say this one is my best picture. (Sadly, I took a bunch of pictures but was unsatisfied with the results)

Beautiful and yummy.

And what’s even cooler this time was that there were white chocolate-covered strawberries too! Apparently this was a new addition (or something only available to some of their products) so it was a delightful surprise. The dark chocolate ones were yummy too but I have a sweet spot for white chocolate (pun intended).

And, I guess as usual by now, I have a new song that is maybe not quite willingly but pleasingly stuck in my head and first it was Reason by Fonogenico (which would also make sense since it’s the ending theme to xxxHolic which I just finished) but that changed the moment I heard another one of their songs: Rhythm.


Lyrics and mp3 link can be found in the video’s description. Having never heard the band before hearing the softer ballad-like Reason, this was not the type of song I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised. I love the jazziness and it’s just so catchy and has a really lovely melody. I don’t think the quality of the Youtube video does it justice so I really suggest hearing/downloading the mp3 version. And then when she starts scatting near the end, it just blew my mind. Awesome.

So I finished xxxHolic…

So…

Exams are done. And so is school.
For a week.
Then I have summer school for 3 weeks. I hope it’s not too awkward because while I do know the people in my class, they’re not people I would usually talk to so it might get weird… can’t say I’m looking forward to that, but we’ll see. As well, due to exams, I haven’t been watching too much stuff but I have been reading (due to the logic that a chapter can be read in under 5 minutes so I have a good place to stop at anytime… not. Stupid cliffhangers.) I’ve actually started to read xxxHolic (I’m at like chapter 50-ish) and it’s really cool! Well, CLAMP is awesome, but I like the subtle references to other stuff in the CLAMP world, particularly what’s going on in Tsubasa. But I guess because they have more than one manga running ‘weekly’ that they have to take more breaks to keep up… still, it’s very cool. I like the style of xxxHolic which at first seems like an unrelated name (at least to me) but it makes more sense because the people that Yuuko’s wish shop usually have are some sort of addiction or some sort of negative repetition, which makes it a *something*holic, or xxxHolic. I was not cool enough to think of that myself; I did read it on a board I think on Mangafox…? But anyway, it’s the best explanation I’ve seen and actually makes more sense and has importance in the story than some other titles out there. (Bleach anyone? Sure Ichigo’s got orange/bleached hair, but so what? It’s not like he’s the ONLY character with orange hair in that show. Or maybe I’m just blind and not seeing the big picture. That’s quite possible.)

But anyway…
