Iíve redesigned my Senbazuru, I took it apart a day or two ago, now itís no longer a curtain, itís more like a proper one, as Iíve seen them in pictures. Itís now 100 cranes per thread, any more than that would be too long and too heavy. Iíve spent the past 3 days watching the Slayers, 1st and 2nd seasons. The ending of the second season I was particularly satisfied with, tension reached a good height, bad guy beaten, predictable in some ways but not in others (we know sheíll have to use the super ultimate, dangerous spell that she mustnít use, we can guess what could happen (either she canít control it and blows up the world or she can and beats him) but we get a slightly less predictable outcome), the whole will they wonít they thing and then they forget what happened and things go back to normal (letís face it, itís getís boring when things get awkward between characters because they realize theyíre in love with each other when itís not the main theme of the anime, especially when characters have a fun/good/quirky relationship as it is (it helps when one character has the brains of a jellyfish (are jellyfish actually dumb? Or is it likely that they're saying his brain might as well, be a jellyfish, either way it's fun, especially when he dressed up as a jellyfish and found it particularly comfortable ))). I was getting bored of serious anime or ones that were getting a bit heavy, Toradora has gotten rather heavy, and so is Welcome to the NHK. One Piece is also pretty heavy at the moment, the whole Impel down thing is getting out of hand, even more impossible odds being thrown at them (but it has quirky characters so itís not too bad). Ah, I want to eat beans and sausages, not sure why, itís 00:10 so itís not wise at the moment.
Like I said, I was getting bored of serious anime, and Iíd already seen the first six Slayers episodes (only six, The first DVD was one of the freebies I got at the first expo, along with some crap, when we stopped for lunch we rooted through our goodie bags and started trading things, it was fun. Didnít get any at the second expo, shame, but no big deal) Itís a pretty good anime, some serious moments and lots of funny ones. In both the first and second series thereís been a point where they guys have to dress as girls, they hate it so much and it causes so many funny incidents. I found it particularly funny that the lead makes such a fuss about her small breasts that the guys end up with large ones (one bra was stuffed with an apple and something else I couldnít completely determine, probably another fruit ).
Oh, weíll have volcanic dust over our heads at some point Iím told. I wonder when. Mum says itís fine until it rains. Makes little or no difference to me at the moment, like usual during my time off, I havenít left the house since Sunday. Actually, not true, I went outside last night because mum said that someone had moved my old desk onto the pavement (no idea why, weíve left it in the garden until we can dispose of it) funny thing is they wouldíve had to move the bin to get it out. My PCís right next to the window, Youíd think Iíd have heard it. Then again, if it was any time between and before 12 and 1pm then I was asleep. Iím sleeping in too much at the moment. Need to stop going that.
I just finished watching K-on. Damnit why is my hair shedding so much, I wouldnít mind if it wasnít so long. Then again, itís not that great a problem, as long as I donít go bald. On one side I have male baldness (Napoleon, heís had no hair on the top of his head since Iíve known him, since mumís known him in fact, and both his brothers had the same thing) and on the other side is a family of redheads (for some reason itís usually thicker and stronger and doesnít seem to fall out quite a easily) I keep finding white hairs now. That worries me, by hair shouldnít be going white at 22. At least, it looks white, itís very pale. Primarily itís a dark blonde now with a couple of copper strands and now these exceptionally pale ones. More split ends than I can count too. Damn I want to eat something now. No idea what. Wouldnít be wise to eat at this time. Actually, reminds me of a question Iíve tried to answer for 3 years now. If you get hungry before going to bed should you eat a little something to stop your stomach growling and keeping you awake, or should you not eat anything and not have your stomach digesting and keeping you awake? Itís a dilemma Iíve only really thought about since I moved into halls of residence for my first year at uni.
Anyway, like I was saying, I just finished watching K-on. Kind of makes me wish I couldíve joined a band at school. Then again, itís not like my school had bands or actively encouraged them. Sigh. Doubt Iíd have been much good at it, I studied violin for about 4 years, give or take, never showed much promise (then again, wouldíve help if Iíd practiced more) and I sure as hell wouldnít have had the courage to try and sing. Anyway, K-on makes it all look fun. Sometimes I wish my school wouldíve been like they are in anime, it always seems like fun but then again itís fiction and fiction always seems better than real life because there always has to be something interesting happening somewhere, real lifeís not quite like that. Still, it makes for a fun daydream .
Anyway, I think Iíve been rambling for too long.
