HELLO~ ♥ ♥ ♥
Hi. Wow. Been way, way, way too long. /o\ But I'm back~ And I have massive catching up to do!
Er, apparently Raw Paradise and OneManga shut down? And the internet semiexploded? But hey, it's not like there aren't a ton of other aggregate sites out there and at least the scanlation teams weren't targeted. Links break, but the internet moves on. So is life.
I have been doing the job thing, and by 'doing' I mean 'failing', so I am in the process of trying the job thing again. Family drama continues, but I have managed to extricate myself from it, thank god. I have been studying for the LSAT because I really can't avoid that much longer. I managed to loose my freaking driver's permit because it expired, how sad it that. It took a freaking MONTH to get a new one. (it is now official, I hate the DMV with a truly unholy passion. they made us wait outside for hours then told people to go home and come back tomorrow
and tomorrow and tomorrow and ARGH! it's summer! in florida!i still get twitches thinking about it.)
Have discovered Florence & the Machine. This should be interesting. Turns out it's good writing music.
Hm, fannish stuff. I watched BBC's Sherlock and I loved it to pieces. Or, alright, I loved the first and third episode to pieces, I kinda hit fast forward for most of the second. But the first and third were awesome! I read some Sherlock Holmes in middle school - Hound of the Baskervilles and a few short stories - so I was able to pick up on enough of the injokes for the show to be very amusing. ETA: aside from the slashyness, of course. :D (And my ass is he a high functioning sociopath. They don't have a word for what he is, but it's not a sociopath. Yes, even if he exhibits
some a disturbing number of the typical behaviors, there's a reason the DSM-IV is set up with a fluid diagnostic criteria - . /stops self before sidetracking into an Abnormal Psych rant.)
But yeah. Sherlock rocked. Ya'll should watch it.
Oh! And I read through the scanlations of Oofuri! I have lots to say about this!! ♥ (truthfully it's mostly along the lines of, 'oh god abe. ;_; i understand, bb, i do, but you can't do that. please stop doing that.' And what is this 'Kimobe' thing? And Meoto? And OH MY GOD WHY DID IT END THERE OH MY GOD. I think I will be needing some Oofuri icons. :D
The new PH chapter is out! And...so are all the other chapters I missed! orz Chapter recaps of those coming v. v. soon. And I think I'm gonna try reposting the faq, too, if for no other reason than to provide resource links now that OM is down.
Holic: ...you know, I'm feeling massively nostalgic for spazzy highschool!Watanuki. And Yuuko. And Himawari. Not that Watanuki isn't rocking the sexy outfits, but I miss the charm of how the series used to be. Still love it though. Damn you, CLAMP.
