Watched 'Allo 'Allo with kit after having sushi last night.
Yay--Britcoms rule!

===========================
kit, ange and neffy-poo:

Will be a lot more free next week. Which day is good for you guys?

We're doing vocab and usage in Japanese class. Just what I needed! ^^

===========================
Incandescens: Sent out package last Thursday. No time to e-mail you--so sorry about that.

===========================
Dinner on Tuesday? kit, ange, sf? I have time to cook . . .

Or maybe next week? Any day next week is fine by me.

Cultural Exchange
kit (a PS 2 gamer) has showed me PS2 games like Fatal Frame 2 (yes, that was scary) and the FF series. And then I showed her BL RPG games like Enzai (yes, she found it scary) last night.

We basically thought, only the Japanese . . . would come up with games where the aim is to boink as many people as possible. (In both hentai and BL games.)

============================
New word I learned: fandom wank

Meaning (as far as I can ascertain): You bad little example of fandom, no biscuits for you.

E.g.:
Why is there so much fandom wank recently? I think there might be some brewing in BL gamerland even as I speak . . .

"Neko-san, was there a bunch of people out here after 11pm last night?"

"Meow."

"Yeah, well that bunch of lunatics are kind of like the people I hang out with . . . Only I was auction-watching for someone last night and my phone was re-charging. And I had the headphones on."

"Meow."

"You're right, Neko-san, having opposable thumbs does not necessarily make us the master race. Not even the invention of doorbells and letterbox slots."

"Meow!"

"Ok, ok, I'll get you your breakfast . . ."

======================================

Yes I *know* you mean well, but could you loonies try surprises with a little more common sense next time? Now I feel like a big jerk because I wasn't even aware you guys were outside.

Doorbells are there for a reason. And you scared the cat.

(Naturally, I'm also not at my most charming when I'm cramping up like crazy.)

Having looked at my sister's lj and my own, I can safely say that if I bottled her, I'd get bottled genki. (Which is so not true at certain times early in the morning . . .)

Fandom-wise, I have been watching 'Allo 'Allo, very probably my favourite comedy of all time.

"Listen very carefully. I shall say this only once."

I plan to sleep at 10.30 tonight.

I cannot wait for next Monday to be over. Then after that, I can't wait for next Thursday to be over. (We're very glad we get breaks, but in the end, it tends to create more work. *sigh*)

==============================

As kit said, fandom is crazy and fangirls even more so. (kit, won your dj. Prepare the yen please. Remind me of the other auctions.) Now I'm waiting for other fangirls to pick up their dj and pay me someday soon.

==============================

Japanese class starts again this weekend. Frikkin' hell, I'm so out of practice (not that I was ever any good at speaking the language in the first place).

To satisfy incandescens' academic curiosity . . . tentacle yaoi. (Heh, I can imagine the search engine hits for the next month or so. Currently, it's mostly KKM. KKM, taking the mickey out of BL, but in a nice way . . .)

Which pushes for the theory that yaoi fangirls are not that different from hentai fanboys, especially when it just looks like tentacle-hentai with a gender-change. (We're all really just pervy fans--just don't tell our mothers. And never open that particular lj at work.)

Have doujinshi now. It is pretty. Not as pretty as Death Note though. As fun as PoT was, the anime is, as heard practically everywhere, on a scale of one to ten in terms of BL/yaoi-ness, breaking the scale somewhere after 25948178305453. Which gets tiring after too many fillers.

============================

kit was right. Inspiration always comes when one is stressed to the max. Which is also known as the irony of life . . .

Work is boring--but what a lot of it there is too. Life is boring, but strangely busy. *yawn* Uh-oh, I'm boring.

(later)

They have ljs for tentacle yaoi? Hurray for the Internet!

I hate it that this job has no real time-limits. They can get you even on Sundays if necessary.

I get to go for first-aid courses! (I fangirl the former-paramedic trainer! One and two and three and four and five and one and two and three and four and ten . . .)

I get to deal with annoying people every day.

There's never a dull moment, really. (Except for yesterday, which was a case of real official leave for a real official function. I didn't want to go. But the parents . . . and I promised my friend that I'd give her a lift.)

*goes font-hunting*

=================================
A Chronic Case of Fandom:
*after someone announces on an ML that they have seen the end of a series that ended three years ago* Congratulations! Someday, around a year afterwards, when you hear another newbie say the same thing, you'll feel exactly the same way we do right now! *presses delete button*

I know I'm really, really late when I met my mother at the bus stop today on the way home. *sigh* I'm pooped, but there's still work to do. *sotto voce* And do they appreciate it? Noooo . . .

==============================
I'd rather be at work tomorrow instead of taking half a day, really, but the parents . . .

Gomen nasai, ange--sorry for abandoning you alone in our actual seats after that mix-up.

Recent movies:
Collateral: Tom! As a baddie! Actually quite amusing in some parts. (My friend said that it was crap because she could only see one theme in the whole show, but I said it could have been worse--it could have been Van Helsing. That's what I usually do for most movies--compare them to the biggest dud watched this year--which happened to be Van Helsing. Haven't watched enough movies to come up with a more recent dud.)

Fahrenheit 9/11: Gee, Mr Moore, aren't you the objective one?

I must be coming down with something because the yen for dj has been fading (and I haven't been looking at Y!Jp for a while--oh gods of the Internet, save me from temptation). Or maybe work is a serious dampener of urges . . .

More work to do now. *sigh*

Reason #17 about why fandom sucks: I never liked fandom very much after the first three years, but at least I never begrudged anyone their right to have and express a differing opinion.

Never argue with a fool--you know that it makes you into one eventually.

In the meantime, I will put on my reasonable-face and smile about it.

Testing, testing . . . *prods blog*

I do so like a long weekend. For one thing, I finally changed this blog layout. (Well, that didn't take too long--just more than a year . . . *sweat*) Editing done with PS, the mouse and the tablet. *pets tablet*

Long weekend is almost half gone. Still busy.

Tomorrow: potential Girls' Night in the works, after the family get-togethers of course. Mum's birthday to be celebrated in advance on Monday.

Have been happily fanart-ing. Self-absorption is a vice that's hard to give up.

It's that time of the year again.

Bought flag (after hunting through branches of NTUC and Popular in both Tampines and Pasir Ris) because my mum does change the thing every few years. Bought a red shirt to show willing.

The best thing about this time of the year: Long weekend! Which will have work involved somewhere, I can feel it in my water . . .

Reading update:
Managed to get Fool's Fate by Robin Hobb after waiting in line behind 23 people on the library's waiting list. (Pretty short waiting time. And the book was kind of new looking. Maybe they took one look at the dictionary-sized thingy and gave up?)

. . .

I so felt like kicking Fitz afterwards. Then the author for the cop-out ending. All that angst and then that sort of ending.

Job is taxing--the sheer amount of admin in itself . . .

Am sapped. Room is in a mess. Invited friends over in a vain attempt to make myself clean the place up. I can't find my digital camera's power cable . . . Oh dear.
