It finally rained today! *dances* And as predicted, when it rained, it poured. The thunder was booming very loudly, and the lightning was striking almost constantly. And of course, with me being the rain/thunderstorm fangirl that I am, I ran outside, stood on my porch as I fantasized about in my last English entry, and took it all in, haha. Twas the first heavy storm after a heatwave thus far this year, after all, which is quite frankly my favourite part of summer. Yes I know I'm crazy. The freak storm only lasted a couple of minutes, though, but still enough to form a giant lake in the middle of my street. My place is at the bottom of a slanted street, meaning all the rainwater just rushes down to my end and floods everything. Not that I care at the moment, because it finally rained! Yay!

Every time that monstrous thunder exploded into my consciousness, I ended up thinking of my dog, Tippy. He passed away six years ago now, but when there was a thunderstorm going on, he'd start wimpering like a little baby, while trying to make himself look small while he hid in a corner, or on my lap, or anywhere where the 'monsters' couldn't get him. It was hard for him to look small too, as he was a labrador-great dane mix, a.k.a. a big dog. The only thing that scared him more than thunderstorms were balloons. I am not kidding, he would refuse to walk through a door if there was a balloon hanging on or near it, and his eyes would grow big as he slowly stepped away. He was such a scaredy-catdog, but I loved him. <3


Is it a bad sign when I can't even write about not being able to write? lol I thought so. When writing, I either end up as too vague or too specific, so I need to find myself a common ground. I am writing French entries on here to get better used to it, and to progressively correct my mistakes, so why can't I do it in English? I said yesterday that I would take time to write but I didn't, and I'm saying it again tonight. Firstly, I'll cook some dinner(boiled asparagus, beef, and hashbrowns for anyone who's wondering), read this week's installments of Bleach and Naruto(though no One Piece, as Oda's got a week off ;_;), and then sit down and write something. I'm thinking a backstory-like moment for one of my characters, Alessandra. She's an 'honourable thief' if you will, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor(to put it extremely simply, lol). She's also my only gay character presently, so I want to work with that a little bit more.


I have found nine random people on my 3DS' StreetPass now. Seven of them are guys, of which five have blue shirts, of which three have Kirby sitting on their head. How unoriginal can these people get? lol

I figured I have been missing out on a lot by not watching any Indian cinema(not to mention every other country's cinema, but right now I'm focusing on the subcontinent). I started initially with Slumdog Millionaire several years ago, and Rules: Pyaar Ka Superhit Formula several months ago. I loved both of them, particularly the love stories and of course the music. And recently I watched both Dhoom and Dhoom 2, more action-oriented movies than the other ones. But the second still had it's own romance themes, and I loved how it ended. <3 If anyone else here is a fan of Bollywood, do you have any suggestions for me? ^_^

Oh, and here's a promotional pic for Dhoom 2. My favourite was Hrithik Roshan, second from the right, for more than the obvious reasons. *_*

And since I'm on the topic, I'll use music from the movie too. =D

I also had asparagus for dinner! :p

I freaking love thunderstorms. We don't get them as often here, and when we do they're not as spectacular as the ones I've experienced up in Ontario. The whole sky will light up with the lightning, we rarely get the fork lightning. It poured for a few minutes this morning, though. I could hear it outside. I love opening my window and listening to it when I'm laying in bed. <3

For Indian cinema, while I haven't really watched much myself, my Hinduism prof recommended watching the 80s television production of the Ramayana. We learned the story of the Ramayana in class, and it's fascinating!! Do you know it? I think Sita is a wonderfully strong female character (especially at the end when Rama asks her to walk through fire a second time to prove she remained true to him and she just tells him to piss off and gets her mom to take her home aka back to the earth).
Jun. 10th, 2011 11:25 am (UTC)
Oh yes, I love that too. <3

I do know of the Ramayana, but I have not seen the film adaptation. But it would be very interesting to see!

Ok soooo what langauge is your title? :) And what does it say?? :D I'm interested.^^

And if you the rain/thunder you should visit over here sometime! XD British weather is well known for being completely weird with sudden rain and that! XD

Awww Tippy sounds like he was adorable. <3 It doesn't matter how much time passes we still miss our pets when they are gone.

T_T no One Piece... although Oda deserves a break i still miss it!
Jun. 10th, 2011 11:27 am (UTC)
It's a common greeting in...ahem...Klingon. ^o^

Oh yes, I think I would get along just fine in Britain for that reason. XD

BOLLYWOOD! ♥!! I love it on principle, I believe. The only suggestions I have are Bride and Prejudice (which is the one and only "chick" flick I enjoy) and maybe Bend It Like Beckham? I only saw it once, so I don't know if it counts. Btw, is that Aishwarya Rai? She's one of the prettiest women ever, I think.

The freak storm only lasted a couple of minutes, though, but still enough to form a giant lake in the middle of my street.
~ Did you play in it!? I so would have. :D

~ I can usually pick out languages, but I had no clue on that one... so, I cheated and googled it. *snerk* You're funny. XD I never would have guessed that.
Jun. 10th, 2011 11:29 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, Bride and Prejudice! I had completely forgot about that one! And yes, that is Aishwarya. ^^

I did not. Because it was all muddy, haha.

XD That's the whole idea! *evil laugh*
Jun. 9th, 2011 04:28 am (UTC)
I had to google it because I've couldn't figure out this language. I fail. XD

Aww at least you and Tippy had many good memories together. :)
Jun. 10th, 2011 11:30 am (UTC)
I don't think anyone is expected to know that language. =P
Jun. 9th, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
sounds like a good dinner :)

well.. the movie kuch kuch hota hai had two of my sisters crying when i watched it with them. it's been so long since i watched anything from bollywood, i don't remember much anymore..
Jun. 9th, 2011 09:13 am (UTC)
Heh, I'm actually also interested in the title of your entry...I suppose that it means "Hello" but I have no idea what language it's in XD Hindi? XP
So you're a thunderstorm freak? Cool~ haha
I agree that heavy rain after insanely hot weather is heaven!!!
Your dog must have been really funny. I never imagined that dogs can be scared of balloons :P One of my dogs attacks playfully just about anything haha Not one balloon would survive :P
Bollywood? I've seen Khabi kushi khabi gham and a few others but I can't remember the titles T_T
My sister has watched much more, though ^_^
And what's this about your gay character? Are you writing some story? Sorry I didn't really have much time to look around your journal -_-
Jun. 10th, 2011 11:42 am (UTC)
XD It's in Klingon. ^o^

Oh yes, I am definitely a thunderstorm freak. <3

I think the reason he was so scared was because one popped in his face like that when he was a puppy. But by the time he was as big as a human, that memory remained. XD

Ah yes, I'm been working on a novel off-and-on for awhile now. Tis an intra-apocalyptic story that I'm trying to make as historically and phychologically accurate as possible. I'm working on developing characters with many different backgrounds, including this one homosexual thus far.
Jun. 10th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
Klingon...are you a fan of Star Trek then? XD
Haha poor (huge) doggie XD He experienced trauma haha XD
O.o Sounds interesting~ Is it on your journal?
Jun. 10th, 2011 03:38 pm (UTC)
Not enough to call myself a Trekkie, but enough to keep up in conversation. XD

Thanks! And no, I don't have any of it posted anywhere yet. I'm focusing more on research and brainstorming still. *sweatdrop*
Jun. 10th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)
Haha then I'll be waiting for your story^^ I'm sure it will be awesome~ :P

Ah, rain is horrible. All the weather that ever happens here in England is rain. Well, here in the north anyway. It's so depressing... But then, I suppose when the weather is beautiful, we find it extremely beautiful because we're not used to it.

Hmm, it's bizarre how just small things can remind you of something. Whenever I smell woodsmoke, it reminds me of cleaning out my rabbits' hutch in winter. Strange... :)

Jun. 10th, 2011 11:46 am (UTC)
lol I call thunderstorms beautiful. Though I also find it beautiful in the minutes and hours following a thunderstorm. <3
Jun. 12th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, thunderstorms are beautiful. We don't get them too often here, but when we do, we just spend ages watching (well, I do anyway). There's something about flashing in the sky that is really pretty... :D
Jun. 10th, 2011 02:14 pm (UTC)
I love rain and thunderstorms! I find the sound of rain soothing, thunder is exciting, and lightning is beautiful. I bought the cutest rainboots in Hong Kong and was hoping to use them here since I was told it's supposed to rain a lot here, but it doesn't really. Only drizzles and those are just inconvenient.
Jun. 10th, 2011 03:40 pm (UTC)
Another person who loves thunderstorms! Awesome. =3

You'll definitely be able to wear those rainboots when you're in Canada again. There hasn't been an impressive day-long rain yet this season, but I'm crossing my fingers.
