Agh! Finally!July 14, 2008 at 7:54 pm | Posted in Personal | 7 Comments
I am…so tired. It’s only 7:00 PM here too. But now that everything is all settled I need to explain things. Then it’s off to bed (or relaxing anyway). Special A’s review will have to wait until tomorrow.
You may or may not have noticed my general “ugh-ness” throughout the past ten or so days. I doubt you did at the time, but you probably noticed the general lateness of my posts, more grammar mistakes and typos than usual, less substantial stuff in my posts, and all around crappiness.
Well, I just had the week from hell. (After here follows a rant poorly disguised as an apology)
I generally, don’t have to do much. I’m still under eightteen and due to certain circumstances, I didn’t have to attend school last year (and quite a bit the year before as well). But that’s nothing new, all the really dorky anime fans have some sort of story that basically says, “Haha! I have no life” mine’s just slightly more legitimate…ha.
Also, due to the certain reason I couldn’t attend school (illness), and the fact that my “illness” basically just amounts to me being tired all the time…I am exhausted.
Agh! The next time I find a boy with a sick girl moe I’m going to kick him in the face. There is nothing cute about a girl who is too tired to do anything. You guys should be stabbed in the hand with a pencil and get one of those ugly purple scars for a while. I’d do it myself, but being a sick girl…I’m too tired.
Basically, my week consisted of filling out a ton of applications and dropping all of those off so I can get a job. Then I had to go to my college and finalize my dual-enrollment. Then I went out to do all sorts of “fun” things that I now regret. We have two sets of family friends visiting from out of town. Now added onto all that, I had to practice driving so I would be able to get my license today.
Did I get my license today? No, of course not. No one in my family has ever gotten their license on the first try. Something always goes wrong. My mom had to drive a car she’d never driven before, so she messed up her turn signals. My dad missed his appointment because their car broke down on the way. My brother’s instructor gave him inproper directions. And me? Well, the brake light apparently burned out on the way to the DMV. I didn’t even get to take the test. *headdesk*
At least my mom had the foresight to cancel that appointment I have tomorrow. I’ve been like the walking dead for the past four days. I probably would have failed my test anyway.
So, in order to make this anime related…check out this crap I got because being busy included going to stores:
Viz has gotten so much better at translating manga since I first bought something from them six years ago. They do 100 times better than those crappy scanlations we all had to suffer with for so long. Soon! Soon I’ll be able to read chapter nine…and be able to freakin’ understand it.
“And what talk without the princess caused her to decide the parting!!”
WTF does that even mean!? It would have been better if you had just translated everything into romajii if you’re going to be that crappy about. Seriously!
So…uh…yeah. Looking forward to volume two. And volume one was good also, honorifics ftw!
I also got myself up-to-date with the volumes of Skip Beat! viz is releasing. Though the lack of honorifics still makes it feel awkward when I’m reading it. “Mr. Tsuruga” just sounds wrong! No one would call a twenty-year-old Mr. anything. Or is Ren twenty-one now? Well, whatever. The answer’s still the same.
I’m getting myself psyched up for the anime in Fall~! I think they’ll at least get through the Tsukigomori arc. Which is good, because I love all those developments. But some of the best moments are at the beginning of the manga anyway. So I’m going to be a happy fangirl no matter what.
Well…as long as there are no miscasts. So I hope they just go along with the Drama CD cast. That would just be great. I only listened to parts of it, but it was all good. Too bad there aren’t any cast announcements yet. There’s not even a website yet…
No recent scanlations…no news on the anime…my Skip Beat! excitement will fail me again at this rate!!!
Moving on, this is the second light novel I’m going to review. I know I haven’t gotten my Strawberry Panic review up yet. It’s just part of the busiest week…ever. That’s all.
And…uh…that’s it. Except for the wii. Which I’ve been told is region-free, which means I will totally be getting this game for it. I’ve heard from six different people that wii is region free and if six different people were either mistaken, or flat-out lied to me…I will be pissed. Well, if I find out after I get the game anyway.
To wrap this up, I’ll be returning to a somewhat normal blogging schedule this week. Just SA tomorrow and then after that everything should be normal. And all those extra little articles and reviews I promised will be on the way! Hopefully!
Oh yeah…and I’ll start replying to comments like I’ve been wanting to. Only been able to reply to a few at a time. I’ve missed that…
And that’s it. As usual when I do a lame, boring, or angry post (and hey, this is all three), you can have a cute chibi picture:
In honor of the manga not sucking!! Yeah! Look how happy Kyoko is! Aw, and look at how serious Sakataki is.
Dammit…even all these years later, I still want a Time Stranger Kyoko anime just for those two. Unfair.
And that’s it. I’ll stop being lame tomorrow.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
