The worst part about being so pale and a klutz is that my legs generally look like patchwork quilts. Blue, purple, yellow and green against my super pale skin is very ugly. Hm, also maybe a sickening sort of brownish black? Still, patchwork quilt with really uneven blocks.

Plus, lately, I've had this thing where along with the bruises of all shapes and sizes, I get them in two tiny dots right beside each other. What's with that? I have no idea what's causing it. I've got two dots on the front of my right thigh, two dots on the back of my left thigh, and I had two dots on my left forearm, too, but they're mostly gone.

I never remember what I did to get the bruises, because I bump into stuff all the time and it's hard to keep track of half a dozen bumps a day. But two tiny dots? What in god's name could cause two tiny dots, and why in such varied places? Totally bizarre.

I guess I'm just annoyed because right now it's particularly bad. When I was younger, I never got bruises ever, but now I do and currently, I've got half a dozen on my left leg and at least three on my right, plus a few on my arms. Argh! One of the ones on my left leg is GIANT, too, and it's right under my knee.

I need to tan just so the bruises aren't so obvious.

I also need to start posting about all the anime and manga I've been going through. I have so much to say and yet, no words come. Prince of Tennis and Hunter x Hunter and Ouran High School Host Club and--...well, I think that's actually all, but I'm doing anime and manga both for all three of those series so it is actually a lot. Someone remind me to at least squee about Host Club sometime, because that series is just a breath of fresh air, and so very funny.
I've just looked over my previous entry, and just realized that one could interpret something I said very, very wrong.

That is to say that I've finally gotten around to Hikaru no Go and I'm in love. Again. It's almost too typical, practically my cliché!

I meant that for me to start liking a series long after it's over is typical and cliché, not that Hikaru no Go is typical and cliché. I'm sure most people understood me (especially if they know me well and understand my quirky brain), but I can't stand the thought of anyone thinking it was an insult.

It's slow going on the downloads. It drives me nuts that I was so excited to come to college and have a fast connection... only to get here and find out that my home connection is actually a great deal faster. It's enough to make me want to scream. I was hoping to finish up the series before I went home this weekend, but I'm not sure I'll make it. It'll be close, but I'm guessing I'll probably finish up episode 73 or 74 tomorrow before I leave, and I'll have to download the rest on my crappy home computer. I really should've gotten a laptop instead of a desktop.

In the meantime, I've been contenting myself with rewatching episodes while waiting for the next episode to finish downloading. It's really amazing to watch the first few episodes and see Hikaru's cute round face, and then go back to the later eps and see him so tall and grown up. It's really amazing how his character design changes as he ages; most characters don't actually visibly age no matter how much time supposedly passes. It's the same for the other characters in the series too, but it's most apparent in Hikaru just because he's the character that we see the most. (Or... well, the character that we see the most that actually ages, seeing as Sai is dead and therefore isn't getting any older.) Obata-sensei really is amazing.

Oh, and I also went through all thirty pages of FF.N's Hikaru no Go section, and months and years worth of lj community entries. Look, a pretty icon as proof!
It's so like me to find a fandom two or three years after the series is over.

That is to say that I've finally gotten around to Hikaru no Go and I'm in love. Again. It's almost too typical, practically my cliché! Gah.

I've got the first six volumes of the manga, and I just finished watching episode 69. I took a long break right after Hikaru made pro just because I knew what was coming up and I didn't want to see it. evidenced by how I started babbling hysterically at people when I finally gave in and continued watching. Episodes 60+ hurt so bad. I felt like my heart had been ripped out! Gah, it's so not fair.

Good thing that was Sunday, because I was babbling dramatically (shut up, I can babble dramatically, it's not mutually exclusive, it's not!) at Netta and Nathan until I got it out of my system. If I hadn't gotten it out of my system, there'd be a three page entry about the tragedy and emo pain.

Oh, the emo pain. Er, yeah. Hahahaha. ^-^;

There's a lot of things I want to see in fanfic, but they haven't been written. It's almost enough to make me want to write myself, except after six volumes of manga and nearly seventy episodes of the anime, I still have no idea what the point of Go actually is. Something about territories? Whatever. I can't bring myself to actually consider writing if I don't know a single thing about the game.


I love my Political Science class. From now on, whenever I need to study I can just hit up Netta for the information. This Israel/Palestine unit is going to rock. I've already got all the information I could possibly need for the election assignment I need to do next Monday. Actually, I probably have too much information. I somehow think my professor isn't really going to want to hear about the "wtf parties," as Netta called them...


And you know, when I start to lose feeling in my fingers, it kind of makes me wonder whether leaving the window open all day was really a good idea. But seriously, I'm sick of sweating to death at night. Hopefully now my room won't turn into a SAUNA when I'm trying to sleep!

Instead, it will turn into an icebox. :D Definitely an improvement!
Whee, chili today! I love Dad's chili, it's the best stuff in the world. Lots of spices! And the best part is that I'm getting some to bring back up to school with me and I can have it whenever I want! Yes!

So, yesterday I met up with Tiffi again. After some heavy shopping (why, oh why do I ever agree to go to the mall with her? I always end up buying so much!), we went to Arby's and then back to my house to watch Serenity, which I had just bought at the mall. It was actually the only thing I was already planning to buy, so I don't feel guilty about it. I do feel guilty about the eight volumes of manga (there was a huge sale!), calendar (it was half off!), three sets of earrings (buy two get one free!), some hair clips and headband that I bought (er... they're pretty). Um. Right, anyway, I really had to do a lot of convincing to get her to watch Serenity, but she loved it so ha. :D Finally... we were going to go to a poker game, but my stomach started feeling urpy and I was tired, so I begged off.

Naturally, she made me feel as guilty as possible for backing out. I really wanted to go--and like she pointed out, I really need to socialize--but I just was not in the mood. Maybe some other time.

After she left, I read the first volumes of Negima! and MeruPuri. Negima! is all right (can we say fanservice? Yes, we can!), but MeruPuri is awesome. It's a really odd sort of storyline, but very cute and I just love it. The art is absolutely beautiful, too. I wish I'd gotten all the volumes they have out in English, but the store didn't have the second one. Dammit, the first thing I'm doing when I get back up to Toledo tomorrow is heading to the bookstore to check out their manga section.

Today, however, is errand/chore day. I have to finish up all my laundry, do my grocery shopping... er, that's basically it. But that'll take a lot of time! I also have to pick up a few odds and ends. I really want some more storage space in my room, so I want to look at some shelving units. Everyone in my suite dropped their meal plan, so we need to start buying enough food to actually keep us alive, rather than just enough food to get us by. I've been keeping my food in my dresser cubbyhole (Katie's actually using a dresser drawer), but I'm running out of room so I definitely need to see what I can find.
I just finished up a drabble for [ profile] naruto100 and another theme for [ profile] 3measures within a few hours. Most prolific I've been since like... July of 2004. Geez.

I was focusing on downloading Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny, but I've been distracted by Full Metal Panic! I've spent the past... oh, two months trying to download GS and GSD and out of one hundred episodes, I have about twenty. Two days into FMP! and I've got the first five episodes halfway downloaded and I'm making good progress on FMP? Fumoffu! and FMP! The Second Raid. Yeah, that's definitely annoying. Nice, but annoying.

I'm really excited to start watching it, though. I think I'm going to love Sousuke.

I've also just finished talking to my friend, Tiffi. She's agreed to lend me all the Saiyuki manga and anime she owns, which I'm hoping is a fair bit. I know she loves the series, so I'm fairly sure she has a lot. Unlike me, she actually goes out and buys anime and manga. She's so honest... or maybe she just isn't able to download it. I don't really know. In any case, I've heard Saiyuki is really good and I've seen two episodes. I think it'll be interesting to watch and read. In light of this, I've made plans to go home this weekend (I hadn't decided if I was or not) and meet up with her on Saturday evening.

Oh, and I made Katie jealous. On Thursday, a mutual friend of ours (more Katie's than mine) invited me to the bible study group's Christmas party on Friday evening. I thought Katie was going and I had nothing better to do, so I agreed. It was only after I'd made the plans and hung up that I found out that Katie was not going because she was heading home for the weekend. For a time, I felt like slamming my head into the wall.

But despite an onset of nerves for hanging out with a group of people I barely know, I went to the party. And it was so much fun. I was there from just before 7pm until past midnight. I haven't laughed so hard in ages. It was kind of awkward at first, but once everyone arrived and we started the games and such... very nice. I think since Katie wasn't there as a safety net, I was forced to interact with people or else sit around bored all night. I think I made a few friends. In any case, it was tons of fun and when Katie came back today, I made her incredibly jealous because she'd wanted to go, she just had responsibilities that she couldn't avoid back home. So ha! It was awesome fun and she was sick with jealousy and disappointment that she missed it and all is well with the world. :D :D :D
Augh, what's with this weird abdominal pain? No clue what's going on with that, except now that I think about it, it seems rather familiar. Hm. Must be... actually, no, I have no idea what it must be. It just hurts an awful lot. Still. For the past few days. Maybe it's just something that's happening because I'm sick--got a mildish sort of cold.

If that's so, then my body is truly bizarre. Maybe it's stress?

I rented Batman Begins yesterday, and watched it for the first time. It's absolutely one of the best movies I've ever seen in my entire life. So, so awesome. I'll probably buy it from the video store when I return the one I rented. I almost bought it the day it came out, because Meijer was selling it for $15 (with a free gift--a keychain!), but I thought I'd better watch it before I bought it. Such a bad decision.

ALSO, what's this about Maki Murakami starting a new arc of Gravitation?! Why didn't anyone TELL me?! This is big! Huge! Giant! Mind-blowing! I've already read the first two new tracks, and OMG. If it's going where I think it's going, I am going to DIE. That is just... wow!

I want to know if anyone else knows about this, seriously. Because if someone knew and didn't tell me, I will be having a serious talk with them. Or at least crying all over them and wailing, "why?! Why didn't you tell me, you giant meanie face!" I think they'd probably prefer the serious talk. I can be very shrill when I wail.

...I... just finished chapter 180. Can't find 181, and I have to leave for work in seven minutes, and...



I need icons now.
Just finished chapter 43. My wrists are killing me, my tendonitis is back, I should've stopped at the end of volume four, and yet...


Her HAIR CLIPS? Her power is her HAIR CLIPS?! Why am I not surprised?

Like I can stop NOW.
Dad: *cheeky grin* Hey, are you going to come to Jimmy's 7:15am game tomorrow?
Me: *shifty* Ah... I'm busy.
Dad: ...
Me: ...
Dad: Staring at the inside of your eyelids?
Me: Er. Yeah.

Finally caved and googled Bleach manga. Have downloaded the first three volumes so far, read the first two. So, so good. Augh, I curse myself with yet ANOTHER fandom!

Ichigo is <333333.

( Jun. 9th, 2005 11:28 pm)! It's a bit warm around here. ;_; Um! Err... is it possible for a person to melt? Because it is REALLY hot.

There's still no air conditioner in my house. I only mentioned it briefly, I think, that ours wasn't working, but... uh..! We have no air conditioner! We haven't had any all year, actually, but it wasn't so bad before. Now it's been in the very high 80s... and possible 90s... and I only own two pairs of shorts. *cries*

Latest news is that we need a whole new air conditioner, and it'll be eight to ten days before it comes. Ahahaha. Ha. Haha. *cries some more*

Oh, well. It's actually not that bad. I'm just kinda too hot right now. Otherwise, I can stand it because of the feeling of being close to nature. Yeah, I'm a freak. My mom is like, seething with rage. She looks frizzy all the time from the heat. Ahaha. Mostly I just look sweaty, and unkempt, because using a curling iron is... not possible. Too hot. Today was the first day I had to work like that, and it was not the greatest.

Hair that was halfway done because I couldn't stand using the curling iron any longer, stinky from sweating all day, even though I'd taken a shower not too long before I left... thin, cool clothing. @_@ I am just all unkempt. Hee hee! I'd love to be able to put my hair in a ponytail for work so as not to have to worry about it looking bad, but it's too short for that. Half of my hair falls out... so while it's fine for home and the gym, it's not so fine for work. Augh.

Hey, that reminds me! A ponytail would help now. Whee, I feel better already. *immensely cheered*

Mostly it's just amusing for me, other than the work stuff. Listening to Mom describe the depths of her rage was incredibly hilarious for me.

...haha, Mom just came in to beg me to turn off my reading light. I use it at night instead of my regular light, which is too hot. She wants to have her door open. She whined! I said I couldn't, though, because if I turn off the reading light, the only light in my room with be the monitor, and that will seriously kill my eyes. So I am making the sacrifice of closing my bedroom door and suffering the heat. I just have to remember to turn off my light if I leave my room for anything... let's hope I remember, hey! :D

I am way too giddy for my situation, but I can't be bothered to fix that. XD

Oh, and hey! After watching [ profile] campfuckudie since it started, you know, the multifandom rpg thingie, I've started reading Death Note. I never wanted to, but... All the characters in Camp Fuck You Die are so interesting, and they've got lots of Death Note characters, and... and... Tohru found the Death Note. D: How could that level of hilarity not induce me to actually read the manga?

Yeah, I'm loving it. Damn good manga that I swear never to like and then... do like... They're evil, all of them! *babbles*

...see what I mean? Waaaaay too giddy. And incoherent, though that might just be from the heat.
