we had our first group gathering for #calnime. it was sorta random and we had really no idea what we were going to do nor where we were going. just decided to make something happen on this sunday afternoon. mj30chan was the main planner for this event (all credit goes to her but i'll still give fantasy the credit of bringing up such an idea, he never got anyone to agree on a date tho) well, mj30chan i guess has the power to get everyone to listen. hehe. we met up @ my apartment and just chilled there and chatted about guess what... ANIME! hehe. i've gotta say that i didnt expect a couple of people to be who they turned out to be. hehe. stupid belldandy - have i told u the story of belldandy yet? if not here it goes...
belldandy was kenny's roommate last year, a friend of mines in CS61A. i've always thought i knew who he was since kenny says belldandy has an ibook. and i've seen another guy by belldandy's real name around the dorm area, also in CS61A and carries an ibook or some sexy laptop around with him. well, belldandy doesn't know me. one day i noticed belldandy was in my CS61B discussion again (i've seen him a couple of times in my CS discussion, but i just assumed he and my TA were friends). but today i decided to confront him. i went up to him and said, "hey , why did you come to 's discussion?" he says, "cause i'm in his section." i said, "i thought u took CS61B over the summer and are taking CS61C now." he answers, "no, i didn't, but do i know you?" i answered, "it's me, krunk! from #calnime!" he replies, "krunk...?" at this point i was as lost as he was and said, "you're belldandy right?" he goes, "belldandy...?" then i go, "i'm so sorry, i've musta mistaken you for some other person." He goes, "oh, it's no problem. i didn't catch your name." I said, "my name's nice to meet you."
i was so embarrassed @ this point, i think my cheeks were bright red. we parted and when i went home, apparently belldandy and my mental belldandy were 2 completely different person. belldandy does know this fake belldandy tho and says the fake belldandy is EXTREMELY SMART, which I knew. sigh... still haven't met belldandy yet. =( anyway, here were a couple of pictures i took today: (btw, u can click them to enlarge)
here's esca (aka dwc). he won't respond to anyone that calls him esca. administrator of OCF and currently a senior in Berkeley majoring in CS. he's 22 and is looking for both a job and a girlfriend. email him if you find him cute or a job. he lives on ... j/k ;p
here's killer_spots (left) and zim (right). killer_spots is a mysterious guy and most of his personal information is currently unknown. all that's known is he's a sophmore @ berkeley. zim (don't u just luv his expression) on the other hand i know is currently living with one of my highschool friends, lilpebbles. also a sophmore in berkeley and planning to major in Math (apparently found CS too boring). he's from SoCal and apparently according to killer_spots was on a blinddate with some hot chicks. zim has no comment. i've been to lilpebbles' place like 3x, but coincidentally have never met zim till today.
here's crimsonangel (left) and killerspots (right). crimsonangel is a counter strike maniac who is a freshman in berkeley. fantasy claims that crismonangel uses a trackball for counterstrike and skill levelwise is about equal to him. however, i forgot to ask crimsonangel's response to that comment. crimsonangel is also a fansub editor for kouhai-anime and chaotixubs. pretty cool huh?
welp, here's the biggest group pic. starting from the left, we have zim, cunndogg, mj30chan, kharizma, fantasy. cunndogg as you know is my roommate. mj30chan is if you haven't noticed yet from my highschool Mark Keppel. her brother is also a friend of mines and her little brother is also a friend of my younger brother. a first year @ berkeley and well, nothing much else is known about her. kharizma (cute as one of my friends says; didn't get permission to name this individual, so i'm better off not posting his nick or i might be in trouble) is a 2nd year @ berkeley... i think. welp she's from granada highschool (somewhere in socal) which apparently is the same as ise (who ditched today). i'm sorry guys, she's currently taken (but that doesn't mean she wouldn't like a little competition). ^_^x fantasy... lol i just remember a funny story about fantasy. the first time we met was in Soda. i go in and he calls for me. and my first response was, "Hey Fantasy." somehow i felt like a complete idiot. sounded so inappropriate. well, he's a freshman this year majoring in CS also. lost his hime (princess for japanese-illiterates) a couple times. gets super depressed whenever his him breaks up with him (i'm still wondering if they were ever together). he's really really tall and let's see, another counter strike maniac. plays on the stanford server and is ranked ~100 i believe. no one seems to like fantasy and he seems to get kicked/beat up the most in the channel. hehe. i've gotta apologize to mteklabs, msticazn, snakescott that i didnt get them in my pix. mteklabs and snakescott are the only 2 non-asians so far that we've identified. mteklabs.. not much is known about him besides he doesn't talk much in the chatroom. snakescott hardly visits the chatroom and gets most of his anime through me & ocf. but he does live right below me. ^_^x msticazn is from gabrielino high school, very close to keppel and is a 2nd year majoring in MCB (i think). also taken. ^_^x
well, we went out to dinner ended up in some thai place on cedar and shattuck. the food was pretty good there. we had so much trouble deciding on a place to eat, ranging from Barney's (mj30chan: no burgers please!) to Cheese Board Factory (spelling? which was closed). we originally planned to crash @ esca's apartment and watch My Sassy Girl which DVD worship. but after dinner, everyone just decided to go home cause it's been a long day and sunday nites = hw nites for many.
The match finally ended in Hikaru no Go 56. it was such a good match (although i have no clue about how to play go). i won't spoil it for you guys but trust me, it was so beautiful.
thanks to ungsunghero for posting this awesome piano piece: mario
while listening to Linkin Park's new album "Reanimation", i heard my name: "Mr Hon". i was surprised so i looked up the lyrics online and found it to be "Mr. Hahn". darn, so close! ^_^x
fantasy called me down to soda late tonite and said there was this good caricature and i should take a picture of it. went down there and got this for you guys:
welp, it's obvious that ppl want links to open up new window. I've already implemented that already and even old pages' links will open up new windows. enjoy ^_^x. new poll should be up tomorrow (hopefully). ^_^x btw, i noticed that after 2nd reading there were tons of typos. it's 5:11am, dont expect much accuracy.
