I swiinnnng between happy-fangirl-mode and overloaded-and-bitchy-mode . . .

===================
Random Fandom:
I took a closer look at Zettai Fukujuu Meirei. It appears to be set in a post-WWII setting, but the main characters appear to be agents who will carry out all sorts of dodgy missions up to and including seducing their way into some other character's pants at a client's request. Nice. So you get to play a seme-type gigolo.

Mind you, the missions and the clients sound quite daft. If soccer coach wants his player to keep it clean and quit bringing female groupies home, is it a good idea to hire someone who would turn him to the BL side of the Force? Or the courtesan who wants the mafia-guy "tamed" by Louise, who would wind up looking much more attractive by the end of the day that there will be another convertee to the Yaoi Side of the Force . . .

Neh, well, it's a BL game.

Back to work again . . .

Saiyuki Fanfic Competition at Echoes from the West. Go join or something.

And a good place to read fanfics too, for people who come here searching for "Saiyuki fanfics". No guarantee for people searching for "Saiyuki fanfic lemons" though. (The average fic from EftW is still better than the average Saiyuki fic from the Pit of Voles, so what do you stand to lose?)

=====================
Search-thingies:
Teikokusensenki
Yeah, good BL game. Go buy it. I recommend Amazon.co.jp or Yahoo!Japan Auctions--which has some good deals for the game plus the porny CG upgrade disk. Arm yourself with Japanese and someone in Japan willing to receive and forward stuff for you before going in.

And for the people searching for Enzai OVAs to leech, the raws are up at YaoiTorrents Forever. Why don't you go buy some legit anime DVDs someday after enjoying the downloaded ones? (Just a suggestion, because while I have the DVDs, I would not recommend the Enzai OVAs to anyone other than rabid fans. The anime art is . . . not very good to say the least.)

The Saga of the Pineapple Tarts
. . . Which began yesterday afternoon and stretched all the way to 12.30am today.

My mother would have liked me to have prepared the dough last night, but I was out with my friends until very late (along with most of the country, or so it seemed). And I woke up late this morning. (Actually we all planned to sleep in late, but I can usually only achieve a not-that-late awakening of 10am even on public holidays.)

So tart-making schedule was pushed back. And I fell asleep again in the afternoon and missed tea with kit and neffy-poo. I suck . . . (I associate my bed with sleep alone, so even lying on it brings about instant sleepness.)

And the tarts have to be cut and filled . . . We have one oven, so that's one batch at a time . . . And we're still at it even now . . . (I am on a break.)

Where Do You Fall in Fandom Politics?
brought to you by Quizilla

Has someone been updating terms again? (Extremely graded form of response and result. Does not take into account the full spectrum of fandom . . . Yar, so I've made much less interesting surveys before and I find the Likert scale a little boring . . .)

Random Fandom:
Have the Zettai Fukujuu Meirei preview booklet and CD-ROM in my grubby little claws. And the Demo Movie is up at Langmaor's official site.

Oooh pretty . . .

Apparently it is a game where you can play as Kia or Louise (not the kinds of names you would expect for the main semes in a SemeXSeme game--especially since Louise is as pretty as a girl), carry out missions and get ranked after each one. And screw pretty boys along the way. Am very fond of Louise--who looks just fine in uniform and wields a bullwhip. ("Louise Hardwich" is . . . a very interesting name indeed for a male character who looks like a blond bombshell in army-boots.)

Back to work now . . . *sigh*

The Great LiveJournal
Outage of 2005


During the outage I cleaned my desk and blogged.


What did you do?

Room-cleaning. *sigh*

But I have to clear up the desk outside my room first. -__-;;

==================
Meanwhile . . .

kit:

My aunt has ordered pineapple tarts (a tasty species of which I am very fond of) for the Lunar New Year and she suddenly decided to give a box to you because she likes you best out of all my friends. I am in shock because this is unprecedented and you are obviously not human. My aunt does not like people in general--not even the relatives, most of whom will not even receive a crumb from her this year.

==================
Random Fandom:

Have figured out how to make torrents and seed them. My nerdiness increases by another notch (perhaps). Will make available rarer things like additional drama tracks. Will not do games--I don't know how to convert the files anyway.

While I might fangirl about BL games, I hardly get one hour of game time every week. Busy, busy, busy . . .

Well, I don't have a Japanese test tomorrow because the classes are full up until February. Daijoubu da yo. Shigoto wa totemo isogashii dakara jikan ga nai . . . Tesuto ga nai de, yokatta desu.

And that is good because I am neck-deep in work and have no time to study.

Have seen Sensitive Pornograph. Very amusing. (The animation, though not that great, is better than Enzai OVAs. Then again, a lot of things are better than Enzai OVAs . . . The pixel-mosaics! They move!) Young mangaka meets older mangaka and there is much rabu-rabu. (I don't believe Sono is 32 either . . .) They go SD and smooch and they screw like bunnies.

And the second story . . . oh dear . . . Student part-timing as a pet-sitter. His next assignment is Aki-chan, who is definitely not a rabbit. Because Aki-chan's master is fond of games. (And he is a voyeur too.)

I am nerdier than 85% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!


I qualify for nerdhood, but I doubt I will ever make it to geekdom.

Currently playing: Fanatica (BL Game) It does not pause and shut up when you go to another window like Enzai and Teikokusensenki. Nor is it played from a first-person point of view but more like a BL novel.

(I have figured out why I am so slow at BL games. I actually try to read the text.)

Bought the preview of Zettai Fukujuu Meirei off Y!Jp. I don't particularly mind the price, because I heard it snowed at Comiket 67 in December. Subtract the time taken in the queue and the cost of getting to the Big Sight at Odaiba, I think it was worth it.

Work inevitably does this to me. I think in terms of opportunity costs and time saved. T__T

Yes, it's that time of the year again. I have so little time it is not funny. Cannot play Teikokusensenki and hunt down the porny pics.

============================
New toy--portable hard-disk! (So it's secondhand one from my dad and my sister got a new one to bring to Chicago, but it's fantastically useful for work and non-work.)

============================
Random Fandom: Post-Comiket Sales

Getting a copy of the Zettai Fukujuu Meirei preview book and CD is going to be very hard unless I am prepared to shell out a lot of dough. Which I am not.
