uuuurgh...i've been such a vampire lately. x.x i've been going to sleep between 5-8am and waking up between 2-5pm. usually about the time starts sinking in the sky and the orange and reds are about. i'm trying to break this by just saying the hell with it and staying awake until at least the sun sets, hopefully til 9pm or something. i've done it cons but then again i usually have something to distract me all that time i suppose it's possible with all the anime i have to catch up with that either Steven or Eric have on DVD. like i just finished watching all of Jubei-chan before putting on Josie and the Pussycats (i couldn't resist. i haven't heard it in surround since i saw it in theatres! it's spiffy with 5.1 dolby! o.o), and i can see why people wouldn't really dig it that much. it's fairly repetative and has very...interesting character designs. n.n; it's kinda like watching Excel Saga but it tries to throw in serious bits here and there and mahou ninja shoujo action. o.o ugh...i wish i had bought a lovely eye patch when Jubei was still fairly unknown. i'm sure they've gone totally up in price now. ma~n...i'd like to cosplay Jubei in her ninja form but i don't think that'll happen any time soon. it was a pretty fun watch though, i enjoyed it enough. the henshin footage is pretty cool as well as some of the fight scenes.

Just in case some of you haven't heard about it, they have determined how the accident happened. Apparently, any brain damage that occured did not come from the accident, but rather a serious stroke that happened while he was driving. A vein burst with enough force to actually shift things around in his brain, so the doctors are really skeptic that he'll regain the ability to walk. *sigh* Like I said before, it could've been a lot worse, and for the most part, it sounds like he's doing okay. He is a bit different from before but he still remembers everyone and all. Let's all continue to hope for the best and speedy recovery.

lament with me...
and people wonder why dubs are hated so much by certain individuals. i had the fortunate torture experience of hearing a couple of the dub voices for Love Hina, Mitsune and Kaolla's.

one thing after another
hmmm...this week has been very strange so far. i'm wondering how it's going to end really. it kinda started off well...off. first our internet went down during the weekend because of the whole stupid @home thing, and yes, i am fairly dependant on the net as far as communication because i really don't like using my cell phone unless i really need to. and seeing as how my parents are paying for it for the time being, i don't think they'll see me calling vegas on a daily basis as essential to my immediate needs. feh...that definately sucked. even if we don't talk the whole time we're online, it's still always comforting to know that she's there if i do have something to say. ah well, still managed to have a fairly good RP night with all of 5 people present (iow, we didn't die... merely ended up in a state of undress x.x). then monday rolled around. wtf is it with mondays? as if they aren't bad enough on their own, fate decided to stack it on this week. as soon as i wake, i notice a missed call from kyo. called him back only to find out that someone i saw, live, healthy and lovingly shit talking, was in a major accident that got him sent to the emergency room with a brain aneurism. he's in ICU as far as i know but still...it's great he's alive but with something like that, you know they'll never be quite the same again -if- they pull through. i hate to sound pessimistic about it at all but that's the gospel truth. *sigh* i can only hope that he's not in any pain of the sort right now. maybe after the party this weekend, we can visit if more than family is allowed. *sigh* i really don't know what to hope for at this point. for myself, i don't if i'd want to keep going after such a serious injury that was going to handicap me that much. not just because it will be hard for me, but for anyone and everyone that cares about me as well. it's hard to see someone you call a friend or even family in such a state. on the outside, i've always been able to be strong when visiting relatives in the hospital and what-not but on the inside, i'm thinking 'jesus...will they really be happy living like that for however many years they may last?'. it's really up to the individual but i dunno... rambling i am. i shall move on to the rest of monday now really. so it's mahjong night again. usual people show up and- someone that i -knew- i had to run into eventually because we live in the same area but just not in my own damn house -*drumroll* marla. now, i don't really have anything against marla seeing as i've only met the girl once (well, twice now kinda) but the stories, oh the stories... i mean, sure, genkiland was off to begin with and i'm sure that might've effected her mood during that time but for the most part she seemed alright. not like she was smacking kids with balloons or even the characters in costume. either way, it was just the fact that she was in my HOUSE that weirded me out to no end. only weirded out. it was absolutely feasable since it's kinda a seven degrees thing through fanime staff but still... just the fact that she was in my house. that was like my quote of the night. 'marla's in my house...' weird weird shit i tell ya. she thought i looked familiar but didn't id me right on, nor eric, which i practically broke into a giggle fit about as soon as i was out of earshot. XD just weird man. moving on as i am repeating myself once again, finally got the net back up, eric got his 5.1 system and steve got the new EQ expansion. we all stayed up til 8 playing with our various toys since PG&E was going to turn off our electricity to do work at that time. luckily slept right through it, just to get back online and start d/l'ing more shtuff. huzzah for more pretear. gave eric and divon a lightshow (or 5) tonight. nice to know that my lightshows don't suck absolute shit. n.n; waaa~h...want the rav'n ribbon photons. ;.; or the strobe ones. they're so pu~rty! ha, mom asked me what i wanted for xmas, i could think of 'uhhh...tv or a big HD'. i don't really need much else right now unless they want to buy me Technics 1200s. ha ha. yeah right. shucks, if everyone just gives me money to put towards fixing my car i'll be the living embodiment of hallelujah. n.n; mmmm...had a fun convo with my kirei before she signed off today. put me in a fairly good mood. n.n i love how playful we can be with each other sometimes. always gives me that airy feeling in my chest. bah...i'm so easily amused. n.n; end transmission...

i love you... i'll kill you
no i'm not angsty but the second series of Magic Knight Rayearth sure was because that was pretty much Nova's motto throughout the entire series. thank you enigma for creating such appropriate lyrics for the series. hell...now i have a music vid idea. x.x but yeah, finally. after almost 5 years when i started watching MKR, i have finally watched all of it as of 9am yesterday. Presea and Hikaru are still my favorite characters and Primera still needs to be smacked with a flyswatter, slipper or something. n.n; i cheered muchly when Mokona shut her up by nearly eating her. XD i even rewound it so i could watch it all over again in slo-mo. kekekekekeke...oh yes, Lantis is still one hell of a secksay man. *_* it was decided that Aoshi and Misao of Rurouni Kenshin are just way too similar to Lantis and Hikaru (well other than the fact that Lantis talks). overall, i had a lot of fun watching the series and would probably do it all over again if anyone wants to do an official marathon. XD well, except for maybe the oavs...i only really liked that for All You Need is Love. n.n; but yes, kudos to Clamp! now back to Angelic Layer! and maybe X TV too if i ever get around to d/l'ing it. n.n;

ugh...to anyone that watches Fruits Basket, DO NOT watch episode 8 unless you have someone to cuddle with during and after it because it's just so sad and bittersweet. x.x Damn anime exposing the big softy deep down inside me. Not to mention Mahoromatic 6 was kinda bittersweet too when Suguru tells Mahoro that they can come back to the Obon festival next year and she can't bring herself to tell him the truth. Arrrrgh...need happy, crazy anime to counter the mushiness! NEED! MORE! POEMI! x.x And now I will try to go back to sleep. *snuffle* T_T

another improv-con come and gone
ah #fy and our weird con get togethers. n.n; so yesterday and today were all gaming days. tabletop rpg, mahjong, magic the gathering, axels and allies, the xbox and even the survivor board game were all present. n.n; i think right now they're -still- playing (scrabble). as always, things went well and everyone had a good time one way or another. w00t got a lot more anime to watch as well. thanks to katie and terrence. n.n oof...didn't really participate in a lot of the gaming myself except for star wars RPG and survivor. did pretty well in both, group didn't die or even get that badly hurt in star wars and i got a win for survivor. XD ah...but so tired. probably need to take some vitamins later so i don't get sick. @.@; thanks to everyone that came, it was fun. needs to happen again. it's amazing how much fun board games can be sometimes. i remember when i was a kid, my family used to always play a game sometime during the week, my personal favorite being life. n.n and now the really fun part...clean up. ya~y. n.n;
