So, two and a half weeks later, I return! What have I been up to? GOOD QUESTION.
Uh, because of estirose
's impassioned plea, I ended up making two icons for toku_icontest
in, like, an hour? No, seriously, you can tell
(#6 & #10). I was actually kind-of happy with 10, but 6 is pretty blurry. There was another one (incidentally from the same scene as #9), but it was SO blurry I just couldn't submit it. Of course, I had forgotten how much I like messing with graphics, and so I therefore d/led a copy of the GIMP for my very own. Of course, I had a grand total of three screencaps from Gekiranger, all from the end credits, so I had to sift through the 5 episodes still on my hard drive (5-9) looking for caps. I also learned a VERY IMPORTANT LESSON, but I'm going to have to tell you about it later so as not to bias voting. In conclusion, I think next week's theme should be Boukenger because I have a MILLION BILLION Boukenger caps. That or something like a general theme or lyrics challenge. Particularly because
CAAAAAARANGER FINALLY CAME! Of course, I am an idiot. They stuffed 12 episodes into each volume and as a result there are only four volumes, so now I'll have to pay for shipping AGAIN just to get number 4. I'm kind of hoping someone in the house needs something too and we could split shipping, because between this and the workbooks I ordered (BOOK SHIPPING IS SO EXPENSIVE), it's just not good.
Anyway, I kind of slacked off on finalauraburst
this week and had to pay for it yesterday when there was SO MUCH to wade through. I also slacked off on my laundry, which I will be doing tomorrow (this?) morning. SAA.
We had our first debate in Contemporary Moral Issues. This was basically categorized by us smacking the oposition down. (Topic: Should Same-Sex Marriage be Allowed? Side: Yes.) This is mostly because you cannot make a case for banning it without appealing to religious rationales, which we weren't really allowed/supposed to do. Although, there was some serious scrambling on the other side when I asked if they could prove there was a difference in dynamics between homosexual couples and heterosexual couples (I was the "defender." Therefore my position was one of the two best for delivering smackdownage, along with our attacker, Devin, who was also amazing). And, OMGEEZ. So, half their argument was that same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy. Since studies on polygamy suggest a detriment to women and children (as opposed to studies which say same-sex parents are just as good/maybe even a little better parents), so the "harm" arguement is enough to shut that down. Then they said, "Well, but those studies are just on past forms of polygamy. You can't predict the future." To which I said, "Well, yes, but the little research on polyamory there is seems to suggest it can be just as unstable..." (Note: I don't actually have a problem with polyamory, but I did find a couple of statements saying this, so.) And she just LOOKED at me and was like, "...poly-what?" GUYS! IF HALF YOUR ARGUEMENT IS ABOUT GROUP MARRIAGES, I SUGGEST YOU ACTUALLY DO SOME RESEARCH INTO GROUP MARRIAGES! Of course, there is also the point that if a group marriage could be arranged that *was* positive, what would be wrong with having it? *headdesk* Actually, I do feel bad for them, seriously, they got the short end of the stick.
So, uh, these are kind of terse, but.( HanaKimi 11-12 )( Watashitachi no Kyoukasho )( Den-O 32-34 )( Mega Vol. 5 )( Coffee Prince 17 )( At Home Dad Special )( Aba Vol. 2-4 )( Papa to Musume no Nanokakan )
So, the other thing that has recently grabbed me is music videos by Arashi. Gosh, they are EVERYWHERE! I really had no idea, but they ARE!!
Anyway, this fic should be called "Be Careful What You Wish For." But as you can see, it isn't. Ah, well. This satisfies, like, three prompts.Title:
