I'm so good at my job that I've run out of work to do. Quick, help me think of something REALLY IMPORTANT so I don't get told to take the next couple of weeks off!

P.S. I currently write reports for an environmental consulting company that inspects and assesses automobile salvage yards and makes recommendations for how they can avoid causing pollution of rain water runoff.

P.P.S. Yes, that's just about as interesting as it sounds. But the photos that come with the inspectors' notes are sometimes entertaining and/or horrifying. In a job like this, you take what you can get.

P.P.P.S. My boss offered to get me some pot. In a job like this, &c.

Good / Bad

I have acquired a boyfriend. / He lives in fucking Finland.

He's awesomely sweet and romantic and thoughtful. / He lives in fucking Finland.

It's been years since I felt this close to anyone. / But I haven't met him in person, because he lives in fucking Finland.

He has no intention of coming to the US. / Apparently, I will eventually be going to fucking Finland.

Second Life is really pretty damn awesome. / If you don't mind ending up dating a guy who lives in fucking Finland.

OH GOD, JUST KILL ME NOW. / But not until I somehow make it to fucking Finland.

...and I ran across this gem in the midst of the dross:

"Fucking hell, could this go any worse?” He sat back and shook his head at her in amazement. “We’ve been together less than 12 hours and you’ve already threatened to leave, you’ve watched me puke my guts out, I’ve tried to throw you out, my mother walked in on us, I conned my way into your apartment, you pointed a gun at me, and now you’re throwing my misspent youth in my face. It’s like some kind of nightmarish carnival ride.”

“Well, when you put it that way, it does sound pretty bad,” she conceded, reaching out and giving him a little shove with her foot. “On the other hand, the sex has been fantastic.”

Hi there.

I was just watching episode 6 of Full Metal Panic - The Second Raid, and guess who I spotted riding by on a bicycle?

There are TWO, count 'em, TWO gigantic palmetto bugs in my bathroom, and I'm afraid to go in there.

For those not familiar with the joy that is the palmetto bug, think a 2-3" long cockroach that leaps off walls and ceilings at you.

What the fuck did I do to deserve Texas? The worst problem I had in California was fruit flies, and once I cleaned up the garbage they went away in a couple of days.

What is there to say but AWWWWWWWWWW?

Well, that and I kinda understand why a lot of people don't like Gluhen.
maudite_a_deux: (i could KISS you!)
  • This is really hard to follow.
  • I actually like Schuldig's makeover. Brad's... not so much. Monocoles are strongly contraindicated.
  • Yohji: still an idiot. A cute, charming idiot, but an idiot nonetheless.
  • It's okay! There are two kidneys!

I actually howled that last bit out loud, much, I am sure, to the concern of my neighbors.
maudite_a_deux: (superfluous boy)
God damn, Aya's hot in his teacher costume.

What sucks is when you find (in your own archives) the beginning of a story that's really pretty damn good, and you know -- you know -- that you don't have the juice to do the rest of it justice.

Goddamn it.
maudite_a_deux: (schuldig)
What an unsatisfying ending!

I can has more WK fic now plz?
maudite_a_deux: (schuldig)
As of episode 22:

  • Sakura's awfully blasé about catching Aya KILLING SOMEBODY.
  • Yohji, you fucking IDIOT.
  • No, really, I mean, it, Yohji. You're a fucking idiot.
  • Omi's pretty dumb too.
  • But mostly Yohji.
  • Nice shot, Nagi. You almost put Tot's eye out with your nose, there.
  • Crawford is so SEXY when he's being evil.
  • Farf sure is a convenient bastard.
  • Sorry, Nagi, but seriously, the chick was bad news. Not to mention dumb as a box of rocks.
  • Sort of like Yohji.
  • Wait, Tot's not dead? Huh? What?
maudite_a_deux: (quit slobbering)
I am completely and totally obsessed with ELLEGARDEN.
maudite_a_deux: (schuldig)
As of episode 17:
  • Omi is the gayest gay boy in gaytown, and no one can ever convince me otherwise. My god, those CLOTHES.
  • Ken is growing on me. He's dorky, but he has a certain charm.
  • Aya: still a jerk, still lacks a cohesive persona. Maybe this is what fangirls love so much about him -- his behavior is so seemingly random (other than jumping at every possible opportunity for revenge) that you can really do almost anything with him (except make him a weepy uke) and have some kind of canon justification. He's an asshole, no, he's secretly nice, no, he's openly nice, no, wait, he's an asshole again! All we know for sure is that he should not be allowed to dress himself. People are always talking about the horrible orange turtleneck, but what about that awful purple lace-neck top he wears the other half of the time?
  • Crawford's voice is a little sneerier than I expected, and Schuldig's is less sneery, but I still love them both with the burning passion of 1000 suns.
  • Oh, THAT'S where the Botan/Aya stories come from. HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW.

Have finally gotten my hands on the Weiss Kreuz anime. Random observations as of episode 6:

  • This animation is really bad.
  • CRAWFORD! But not nearly enough of him.
  • Yohji has his NAME in his UNDERWEAR? What the fuck kind of assassin has his name in his underwear?
  • Ken has a playful side. Why don't we ever see it in fanfic? He's always too busy angsting it up. My impression is that he's an essentially cheerful guy, who forgets about the angst when he isn't getting his face rubbed in it.
  • Aya really is a major asshole. And and on the rare occasions he isn't being a major asshole, he'll do anything to avoid being caught at it. However...
  • These guys are constantly spying on each other. There's no way any of them could carry on any kind of secret anything for long, because they'll get caught in the act for sure by the others.
  • One result of the spying seems to be that they've all got an unhealthy interest in each other's love lives. I only occasionally see this getting played for as many laughs as it's worth in fanfic.
  • One result of the spying should be that there's no way the others don't know about Aya-chan, long before they "officially" find out.
  • Fanfic has much more convincing plotlines than any of these episodes so far.
  • I need more WK fanfic STAT.

ETA: As of episode 13:

  • Schuldig is exactly the way I pictured him. I love how subtle his evil is. Farfarello, I find even less interesting animated than on paper.
  • Why is Ken always the one angsting when we've got Omi?
  • I don't buy Omi ever actually liking Ouka as anything but a friend. I think she just wore down his resistance with her sheer pestiferousness.
  • Yohji totally cracks me up with the winking and the sleazing. He reminds me of a guy I used to know. Wait, I married that guy. Whatever you do, don't marry Yohji, it's doomed to failure!
  • Aya, Aya, when will you develop a consistent persona that makes some sort of sense?


I have to go watch more terrible, wonderful anime now.

P.S. In completely unrelated news, I saw a guy who looked exactly like Mr. K the other day, right down to the suspenders and the hairstyle. No guns, though. Then again, you're not allowed to carry them openly in this state.
