   First Anniversary. *passes out pocky*

Well... I was under the impression that I had joined up on the THIRD of August last year, but it turns out that was just my supreme dyslexia having some fun with my brain. So, this post is a day late. So much for the set-up I had going. *grin* Well, with that out of the way... here I go.

Today (*cough*yesterday) marks my one-year anniversary of being a myOtaku member. I've been here for a full year, and that is hard to believe. I look back and I think how fast the year has passed. Theatre class probably helped speed up the year, with a play every few months and deadlines scampering by faster than you can catch up to them. It may also have been the anime-induced phenomenon of true procrastination: "I'll watch these borrowed DVDs next weekend..."

But it also might have been that I have met so many great people and had so much fun that I blew away my biological clock. I think that's a possibility.

I remember when I was first introduced to THAT by Dark Phoenix and Red Tigress and NightBeck (and if you don't know those names, you should!), and in one of my spurts of random-needing-to-feel-useful, I made a few banners... I can't believe how much THAT and it's members and everything have grown since then. I have made so many wonderful friends here that it just doesn't compare with any other community I've been in.

I have people here to thank for being introduced to fansubs and things like Peace Maker Kurogane and Full Metal Alchemist, and I'm sure my ever-growing love of shounen-ai stems from people here as well. Most importantly, though, I should thank all of you for accepting me and all my weird quirks and social phobias ^.^; Nearly every time I talk to one of you or read a comment or a guestbook entry, it makes me smile. I feel loved, and it's such a precious feeling.

To those who I've gotten to know over the year, I treasure all of you and the times that we've had, far beyond what I can say with words. I love you all, and I hope that the next year will be even better than this one has. May this be only the first of many great years together.

Happy first anniversary. Pocky for all!

First off...

My japanese name is Ί Ishimaru (round stone) Miharu (beautiful clear sky).
Take your real japanese name generator! today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Name Generator Generator.

Wow, that's actually very pretty... I'll think of something to do with it, I will...

I've gotten started on that Anime Dictionary that I mentioned... I'm not going to post the definitions I've done so far right now since I can't find my notebook, but if you can think of any obscure anime or manga related term that could use a definition, do leave it (and a suggested definition, if you have one) in a comment. I'm gonna have fun with this...

Love and peace!

If no one else has seen this already, they've announced the cast for Peace Maker Kurogane!


The information is there... check it out...

... I'm mildly disappointed since Okita-san has a male seiyuu... I'm of the faction that demands girly men have girly voices... oh well. I hope it's dubbed well (though I'll probably just watch the sub anyway...)

... I can't wait until merchandise comes out. *grins and flops around*

   Concert! and stuff!

Eric Clapton KICKS ASS. Let it be known.

My concert review and stuff is all here in my LiveJournal, if you want to see it... be warned, I wrote a LOT.

... well, pretty much everything I have to say is there in the LJ entry. Whatever.

Love you all!

How to make an aurus

1 part anger

5 parts ambition

5 parts energy
Add to a cocktail shaker and mix vigorously. Serve with a slice of wisdom and a pinch of salt. Yum!


Personality cocktail
From Go-Quiz.com

Ambition, anger, and energy... with wisdom and salt. Hey, that sounds cool! I'd say it fits well, but that may be wishful thinking. ^.^;

Uhm... I'm going to see Eric Clapton tonight! (I'd say tomorrow, as I haven't gone to sleep yet, but I guess it's technically Tuesday, so... tonight!) I'M SO EXCITED!

In other news... uhm... that's about it. I'm still 'getting the Led out'.

First of all...

Shinsengumi fluffy thing!

... second and probably more important...

Finally finished watching the Kyoto arc of Rurouni Kenshin.

If you haven't seen it, YOU NEED TO. IT IS GOOD.

I'm awake, it's ten in the morning, and it has finally clouded over! Aurus is happy. Pocky all around.

   'nother banner... gyah...

Nintety-one freaking degrees in this room. It's not pleasant. See, I would be using our downstairs computer, since it's about thirty degrees better there, but the network card seems to be broken. No internet. Gyah.

I think my eyes are melting. Darnit, weather is not supposed to be like this here! It's supposed to be RAINY and WET and COLD and DREARY and GRAY and CLOUDY. *shakes her fist at the oh-too-sunny sky, then begins to eat the two fans she has set up in the room* I don't agree with hot weather! Or, hot weather does not agree with me!

... er... sorry about that... well, anyway... I made another banner.

It's probably not politically correct, but since when does Aurus care. Bwee. ph33r it. Use it. Whatever. It's up on the site and blah.

I bet Okita-san's white kimono thing is so nice and cool... *wail*

the Fangirl Oath

One of my friends and I wrote this on a boring afternoon. It's derived from the Hippocratic Oath, slightly abridged and reworded and such. Brought to you, as always, by the Ketchup Advisory Board, and by Powdermilk Biscuits (with the usual apologies).

I swear by Nobuhiro Watsuki, Rumiko Takahashi, Nanae Chrono, and I take to witness all the manga artists and bishounen, to keep according to my ability and my judgement the following oath:

To consider dear to me they who showed me this art; to live in common with them and, if necessary, to share my anime with them; to look upon their manga as my own, to share with them this art without fee or written promise; to impart to my friends and the friends of my friends who have taught me and others who have dedicated themselves and have a greed to the rules of the profession, but to these alone, the precepts and instruction. I will prescribe anime for the good of others according to my ability and judgement, and never to anger anyone. To please no one I will not prescribe a bad dub, or give advice that will cause the watching of one. Nor will I give a fangirl unwanted bad thoughts about her favorite character. But I will preserve the purity of my life and my art. I will not recommend anime I have not seen, but leave that to those who have seen it. Every anime I recommend will be for the good of others, keeping myself from all intentional ill-doing. If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy life and practice my art, respected by all fans and in all times, but if I swerve from it for violate it, may the reverse be my lot.

Now hold up your right hand, place your left hand on this stack of Rurouni Kenshin DVDs...

So, I stumbled across a site that has a fair few PMK screencaps. Figured I would share it, since I would love to be useful somehow, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to take my own. Gyah.


The PMK ones are down at the bottom. Only a few eps are there, but it's the best resource I've found so far. And it never showed up on any search engine. My luck, ne?

My eyes are burning really badly, now. Maybe I sweated into them... or maybe I've been looking at so many pretty Okita-caps that it's shredded my corneas. Ahh, what a lovely way to shred.

Off to go and find some way to stop the burning in my eyes. Or maybe it's just that it's 1:40 in the morning. Ah, well. I'm no longer armageddon incarnate (don't you love that time of the month?). Love you all!

Wisdom teeth clearly do not lend wisdom...

Wow, it seems my wisdom teeth are coming in. I noticed something back there during dinner, and turns out, it's the teeth... but they don't seem to be causing problems yet. Maybe I won't have to get them out after all... I mean, my retainers still fit and all that, so there hasn't been major moving in my mouth (*stabs alliteration*).

On another, weirder note... I had a really weird-ass idea last night...

... 1337 Saitou.

... yes, it is as scary as it sounds. Think of it! 4ku 50ku 24n! ... and 4h0u... my gosh... *collapses and starts twitching*

... maybe I shouldn't have brought that up. If anybody dares draw 1337 Saitou (perhaps, "54|70u"?), I will find some way to pay them, I really will...

Ohh, and I'm also at over 1000 page visits ^.^;; I love you guys! I do!
