とにかく、気を取り直して頑張ろう。頑張ろう。( Mendol 12 (Actual End) )
...You would not believe.
So, I can't find the post, but the older members of my friends list may recall that I had the brilliant idea that I could get an xbox in Japan and talk to my brother over the internet (since it's not like he does anything but game anyway), and he told me the lag was too great from Japan, he wouldn't play with me. And then today! He tells me I have to get an xbox so I can play Earth Defense Force, which is apparently the best game ever except for how it's not.
Brother: And then, this mothership comes, but instead of shooting robots it shoots giant bugs! Ah, sorry to spoil it for you.
Me: ...I do not see how that is anything remotely close to a plot twist.
But, at least he's obedient enough to bring me tacos ♥
Right now he's having a LAN, and there is a girl here. (That was the cue for half of my friends list to shake their heads and say "poor Token Girl.") And they're playing something with music I recognize but cannot place. ALAS!
I've been going to the gym (woo!), but I was sad because I didn't realize they were showing Batman today until it was too late D: Ah, well, DINO SQUAD was just as good. ...except not. I know I'm not *exactly* the target audience, but, just. I am a big fan of five person teams that have powers deriving from dinosaurs, seriously. (Although this team reminded me of the Jetman team from some reason, even though I know that is not based in fact. Especially because Kaori was a guy and all the UST was between Ryuu and Raita. (This was probably due to the fact that they had no Gai. I TOLD YOU THE PARALLEL DIDN'T WORK, OKAY.)) Even so, this show... Kids can tell if the quality is low, producers. And this show reminded me of one I watched when I was younger (and could tell it was bad) where there were these mutants and, like, one was a shark. (I feel like mariko_azrael
could tell me what show I'm talking about.) The good thing was, though, that I did want to watch the whole thing, so I didn't give up on running even though I wanted to. *shrugs* In bad children's shows there is training.
In other news, I want to an online course in teaching English, but the internet isn't being very accommodating D< Stupid NVCC, why you gotta be this way??
And! I got a letter from Asami! Half of it was 年賀状, but half of it was a letter with a ~four leaf clover~ pressed inside. Also, her stationary is really pretty. I have mine out to write back to her/write thank yous to relatives, but... I haven't done it yet.
Speaking of things I haven't done, I'm changing my goal to just be the 2008 requests by year's end. Mostly because, the reason I didn't write those other prompts is because they didn't inspire me. Which means five days to write two fics. Should be okay, right? Especially since I don't plan to post this until I have written one of said fics. Oh, look, here it is now.Title:
