I write an entry here and there, but I don't seem to ever post it here. It's like I have certain expectations for my LJ entries that they are failing to meet. Or something.
the blahs )
I think my mom mentioned it before, and when I asked on the phone (my parents were out and about today), she said she had seen a "big, tough-looking, dark gray cat" about a week ago. But I hadn't seen it until today.
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow )
The elements are in a whirl.

This cannot be a prediction of the future )
2011: Year in Review
I thought it might be kind of interesting to look back at 2011. A retrospective, so to speak. Uhhhh ... this is mostly for my own benefit, I guess, so feel free to pass it over ^^;
Positives, negatives, and other stuff )

I celebrated by finishing Uta no Prince-sama (which I highly recommend for cracky, fabulous bishounen-idols) and now I've started Figure 17.

I hope this is a good year for all of us ♥

Resolutions: None, so far. Maybe take up yoga.

Ah, I can hear fireworks going off ...

Is this place really going to replace LJ? I find the majority of the themes -- and home page design -- really ugly for some reason ... the colors, blech ...

(What a pessimistic first entry, pfft.)

I'd already played a lot of the free demo (maybe even close to all? I didn't finish it) before buying the game, so I can't say I didn't know what to expect. And I don't mean to say that I regret buying the game in English, because I know there's a *lot* of text that would be impossible to slog through on my own since it's not even voiced. But even so ...

Merry Christmas, everyone~! ^_^

Last night we opened "gifts" (which consisted of random new tools -- insulated screwdrivers, tape measures, etc., haha -- wrapped up so there was something to open, and a mini scavenger hunt for money for my brother and me). Today we're going over to my uncle's for Christmas dinner (which my mom is making most of, poor woman) for my mom's side of the family (though it'll only be us, my uncle and two cousins, and my granpa), and tomorrow we're going to my cousin's house for the Christmas gathering with my dad's side of the family (which will mostly involve watching my gramma and my cousin's kids open presents because the rest of us are too old XD).

But with people talking about "Christmas hauls," even though it's by far the least significant part of Christmas, I felt like posting pictures of all the crap lovely anime series I bought from pre-Christmas sales for myself. Spending Christmas money before I even had it, LIKE A BOSS~

Has anyone seen The 10th Kingdom? I'd always heard it was a good fantasy mini-series, but now that I've checked it out from the library and watched the first hour and a half ... I'm just not feeling it at all. (The combined dumb of the trolls and the main character's dad is making my headache today worse ...) Does it get any better, or should I just quit where I am? Seven hours is too much to commit if it doesn't improve D: (But I like so many of the movies and mini-series fans of this like, so you'd think I would like this too.)

I finished watching La Corda D'Oro last night. Ah, it was a good series~ However, I was disappointed that there wasn't any confirmed romance. Not to spoil things too much, but I feel like anyone going in should probably know that, as far as the anime is concerned, there is no "main guy." It's basically a harem end XD Or more accurately, HinoxMusic. All those lovely guys helped her along the way and she's very grateful, but she loves the violin, she loves the music, they (she and the music) will be together FOREVER~ Well, despite that, I still really enjoyed watching it and seeing all the characters develop. They were all pretty likable. I'll have to hunt down the special endings now ... Also, the game. I wanna play~ Oh, oh, and some classical music~! If there's one thing this show was effective in, it was in making me want to check out more works by the composers featured.

I can't believe Christmas is so near. I don't feel much in the Christmas spirit ... but at least I'm going to have a few days off. It'll be good to have a break. Very, very good.

To accommodate those who wish to make a list of the anime I own that they would like to watch ...
My ever growing collection )
I was thinking ... there are actually a number of video games coming out in 2012 that I want to buy o_o This is very unusual for me. I really should work on some of the ones I have, but instead I started a new game in Star Ocean: Second Evolution. LOL. Well, technically I've never finished the Rena path, soooo. (I did play the Rena path on my PSX copy. But I got stuck at the final boss, so I never got to find out which of the many endings I earned. And this is why I think the PSP version is easier, because I had no trouble whatsoever beating him on PSP. But because I kept stealing while people were in my party -- not realizing it would have an effect on everyone's affection ratings -- everybody hated me and I got Claude's "Go home to mommy" end XD)
I don't think I'm going to go outside at all next spring )
Since it's the first of the month, it was my move-stacks-of-newspapers-around day. Not to say this is strenuous exactly, but this is one of my regular duties that makes me feel like I'm getting a workout. So, even though I rarely wear my hair in a ponytail at work -- I get all the little tendrils sticking out, which I think looks actively sloppy rather than the passive sloppiness of long, slightly wild hair -- all this is to say, today, I wore my hair in a ponytail at work.
I regret to inform you this entry contains no ponies )
I was curious back when it started airing since it's from the director of Utena (a show I love), but I had never gotten around to watching it.
Fate is laughing at us )
Chillin' on my new laptop~
On to the goodies )
I had an interesting experience today.
... It was OK.

Up to the last minute, I was having doubts about going. Alone? Ehhhh. BUT I MUST GO FOR TROY BAKER. So I went.
Con extravaganza. Or not )

Unintentional hiatus, I know. I'm just posting now because I thought this would be the quickest way to pass information on to my friends.


Tokyo International Anime Fair is cancelled.

I don't usually mourn when celebrities die, but I found out today that Satoshi Kon passed away (from ONTD, of all places). He was only 47; some sources say it was cancer. If you're not familiar with the name, Kon was the director of the anime movies Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Paprika, and the series Paranoia Agent. That's not a huge body of work, so it's probably no surprise that I've seen all of those. Satoshi Kon is one of the few anime directors whose name I know, and when his name is on a movie, I know it's worth seeing. Millennium Actress is one of my favorite anime movies, and Perfect Blue, as horrifying as it is, has drawn me back for a rewatch a few times. I really enjoyed Paranoia Agent. I don't like all of his movies as much, but they are all of high quality and worth watching at least once. It makes me sad that there will be no more of them. ...
