Now I'm hungry for chocolate...

This is a random quiz that I took once while at Jenny's, but took again to find out what my answer really was.

Open Oyster
You scored 40% Dark, 37% Crunch, and 43% Chewy!

You are an Open Oyster: a creamy blend of finely ground hazelnuts and milk chocolate in a milk chocolate shell.

Sometimes you're open, sometimes you're closed, but hidden deep
within is a pearl. You don't have much of a wild steak, but you do have
your creative and more passionate moments, as well as your sweet ones.
But you can turn all that on and off just as easily as an oyster opens
and closes. You suck people in when you show them your sweet
side...don't be afraid to open up more often ;)

Random post no. 2?

So, I thought it was time to let may many readers (all 5 of you) know how I've been spending my ample free time, since I'm only getting 2 to 3 days a week at Michaels. Not that you guys actually care, but, you know, I like to torture you with my inane babbling. (or is that insane babbling??)
For the most part, I've been taking advantage of that wonderful find of my last random post, Keiichi Anime Forever, or whatever it's called. I finished Gravitation, and while it wasn't bad, and I'm pretty sure it left stuff from the manga out of the anime, the ending was a little strange. All I can say is, ten dollars!?!?!?!?! Maybe if you ask nicely, I'll tell you what that means, but only if I think you're old enough. I tried to watch Vandread, but the videos had been deleted. Oh, the links were there, but not the videos. So I randomly picked an anime they claimed they had all of, that wasn't too long (no 100+ video animes, please), because I really wanted to watch more anime. I had even checked out a random anime from the library, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, but I only made it through 3 episodes. It wasn't very good. I picked a show entitled Mai HiME (also spelled My-Hime) because the little premise they gave sounded halfway interesting. I got into watching it, and I mean really into watching it, since I'm a marathon-style watcher, watching about 3 episodes the first day, and 4 the second. The third day, well, I started with episode 8, and when I got to 15 KAF didn't have working links anymore. I was about to go insane, since I was really into it at that time. I had just seen the halfway episode, and it just gave me more questions that needed to be answered. But, all the links for 15 onward were "deleted", so I was about to give up hope and just be unsatisfied. But then, poof!, an idea occurred to me. If KAF didn't have it, but they got it from YouTube, why not just go to the source? So, I tried that, and watched another 3 or 4 episodes. I finally watched all 26, and I have to say, I truly enjoyed it. I laughed, I cried, that sorta thing. Maybe when I grow up and have lots of money to spare (and maybe by then they'll have it for sale in the states, since the first disc is supposed to come out in May, I think) I'll buy it. But Jenny isn't allowed to see it. Why? Let's just say that at one point in watching it I said "What the hell? Did Yu Watase write this??" When I say I cried, I ain't kidding. But the ending made me happy, so it's ok.
And now I want the soundtrack. I've come to the conclusion that I love Yuki Kajiura. I like and admire Yoko Kanno for her talent and scope, to have done such disparate soundtracks as Cowboy Bebop and Macross and Wolf's Rain. But I love the beautiful, haunting melodies of Yuki Kajiura. If you've heard anything from Noir or .Hack/Sign, you know what I'm talking about. And she did the music to Mai HiME, also. Beautiful, beautiful stuff. That I want, very badly.
Hmm...other than the anime, I've also started reading an actual American (or, more precisely, British) comic/graaphic novel. I started the Sandman series, by Neil Gaiman, which is pretty cool. I'm barely halfway through, but I'm enjoying it, even the dark bits. I really did like how he connected it to the original DC Sandman character, that was pretty damn cool. And I love cameos, even if I'm not an avid comic reader, I know who John Constantine is.
Anyways, what else? I filed my taxes, and owe more to Indiana than the government owes me. I applied for, and was rejected, for an easy summer job. I'm still trying to apply for grad school. I think that's about it for the world according to Sharon. For now, at least.
Well, til the next time I feel like rambling to the world in general.
