  • @TheYaoiReview @directv doesn't have Cartoon Network? For reals? Booooo. in reply to TheYaoiReview #
  • Been at work almost two hours; hands still shaking, but not bad enough to mess up the work… yet. A little less than six hours to go. #
  • @Zekor doubtful. I've dealt with things on my own for a long time; no real reason to change that now. in reply to Zekor #
  • @TheYaoiReview oh haha. I saw that afterward, too. That whole debacle still sucks though. in reply to TheYaoiReview #
  • @Zekor it might be different if you or @Dredgly or @AMirrorForBooks were in physical proximity, but you aren't, so. in reply to Zekor #
  • @Zekor as I said, I've been alone, literally, for a long time. That's still true at the moment. It's all right. I'm used to it. in reply to Zekor #
  • @sammiguidera I don't know. So far it hasn't been debilitating, but I'll keep you updated if you want. I think it's related to anxiety. in reply to sammiguidera #
  • @Dredgly I love you so much, Day. You have no idea. in reply to Dredgly #
  • @sammiguidera No, it's fine. Let's just say I'm happy abt the recent health insurance stuff, too, b/c I also have a "pre-existing condition" in reply to sammiguidera #
  • Sleepy. #
  • I think I might be at the beginning of a "my hands can touch everything but themselves!" kind of day. #
  • I still believe in summer days; the seasons always change, and spring will come again. #
  • My thoughts exactly. RT @shigeki_miyake: Broken sprinkler by the street = free carwash #

Coming up

All right, here’s what I’ve got coming up in July. That is to say, this is my writing “to do” list for the month.

Reviews of
John Carter
The Hunger Games
Through Rushing Water
Belovéd 3956
and 5860

also: my write up of Anime Expo 2012
and an ongoing goal: 1 page of creative writing per day

So, that amounts to about one review per week this month, plus the AX stuff, plus about 25 pages of creative writing. We’ll see if I can pull this off. I’m afraid it might be too ambitious with all the other real life stuff I have to do. Hahaha ^_^;;

  • #AnimeExpo2012 they won't let us into the convention hall until 8. So, I caught the shuttle early b/c…? Was it like this last year? #AX #
  • After all this unintentional sun, I'll be happy to sit in a video room for a good while. #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • So, is Kiki's Delivery Service having a resurgence or something?? I've seen like 5 Kikis so far. #AnimeExpo2012 Someone want to fill me in? #
  • @ra1nf No, it was definitely entire convention hall, not just the exhibits. Had to sit outside in the sun for a half hour 🙁 #AnimeExpo2012 in reply to ra1nf #
  • I always think it's such a trip to watch something like: Kotetsu & Blue Rose helping Saber put on her armor while Sebastian & Ciel look on. #
  • Only at #AnimeExpo could I get completely different characters from 3 different series in same picture w/ each other, much less be friendly #
  • Kind of blows my mind. Like the ultimate crossover fic, you think? ^_^ #AnimeExpo2012 #
