I'm still around!

There's been so much stuff going on that I'll just briefly mention what I can remember:

From July 15-17, I was at Nerdapalooza. It's an annual nerd music festival in Orlando, and it was pretty awesome. I volunteered a bit, and I was there with both Nerdy Show AND Play N Trade, so I got to go for free. Very fun weekend! We did a post-Nerdapalooza episode on Nerdy Show that you can listen  to if you're curious about what it was like:
By far, my favorite performance at Nerdapalooza was Koo Koo Kanga Roo. They were INCREDIBLE. Basically, all of their songs have little kid lyrics, and yet every adult in the audience can't help but dance their butt off! They even invite people to come on the stage and dance. The energy was amazing, and I've never seen a show quite like it. I definitely recommend all of you check them out. They've been touring around the US, so maybe some of you will have a chance to see them at some point! Here's their site, please check it out and listen to their stuff!

Saw Captain America on opening night. I LOVED it. Chris Evans was the perfect choice for Cap, and the movie was just awesome. Definitely one of the best Marvel movies thus far.

I saw Tekken: Blood Vengeance on Tuesday. If you aren't familiar with it, that's the CG Tekken movie, not the live action one. It actually wasn't too bad, aside from the dub. A lot of the character voices didn't match well at all! The dialogue was pretty hokey at times, too. I think the movie would probably be a lot more enjoyable in Japanese. The CG was lovely, though, and the action was really good. I dunno if non-Tekken fans would care much about it, though.

I finally got on my friend's awesome T-Mobile employee plan, so I have joined the ranks of smartphone users! If anyone wants to play Words With Friends, my username is SillyJonna.

My parents are in town now, and I'm enjoying their visit so far. I was saving a couple of gifts for them, and I finally was able to give them to them last night. I gave my dad Infamous 2, and for my mom and grandma, I made a digital painting that I printed on a canvas. Here it is:
It's baby me, my mom, and my grandma. They seemed to really like it, so I'm happy.

My parents and I went to one of my favorite Disney restaurants last night for my early birthday dinner: Ohana. I went there during my last Disney visit, if you'll recall, and I enjoyed it so much that I had to go back! We had a great window view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks while we were eating. It was wonderful! I had such a good time that I didn't even care when one of the servers accidentally spilled some sauce all over me. Though, after we were done stuffing our faces, they brought out my birthday cupcake. I was like "NO WAY. Not gonna happen". I took it home with me. It's now 11 AM the next day, and I'm STILL full from dinner last night.

We're going to Hooters tonight, so I'm excited about that. I always eat awesome stuff when my parents are in town.

I'm having a birthday party Saturday night, and I plan to cook a bunch of food for it. My actual birthday is Sunday, the 31st.
