I love you guys! *Hugs all*

And I am also a very lazy poster, and commenter. I officially suck. *Laughs*

Ummmm... watch Samurai 7! It's fun, it's based on Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai, and Beck has found a new bishie! Everyone, welcome Katsushirou-sama to the pit!

And I know, I'm totally boring. Anyone want to give me inane suggestions on what to post about?

   Ramblings, by me.
Somehow my rating went from 68 to 71 overnight. That's what I get for never posting ^__^ Oh well, I'll have more to talk about when school starts again.

In the meantime, I've got something funny for everyone! I didn't write it, my brother found it on a website and sent it to me, and I thought you guys would enjoy it. I present, LOTR: The 1337 Parody

Bleh... excuses excuses ^_^
Yep, I've been slacking again. Plus, the spyware is taking over my computer, heh. So this site hasn't been working great for me. But Spybot is a beautiful thing!

Since nothing's been going on in my life, here's a poem I wrote at the conference.

Symphony for the Hunter

On the most breezy afternoons,
the blue Dutch Colonial
with the overgrown bushes
hangs its skeletons out to dry.
I donít know the man who lives there
Iíve never seen him out
dragging the barrel-shaped ribcages up his ladder
and pinning them to the high clothesline,
so I know he must be out late at night,
or in the early hours of morning.
Itís easy to tell the most recent bones,
the ones with grooves in the hard, brown surface
where a knife carved out stubborn muscle.
But as the day goes on,
they become blanched by the sun,
and smoothened by the weather,
until they are polished and white as piano keys.
The clothesline strains under the increasing weight,
and gusts rock the bones until they meet,
tapping together like the hesitant knuckles
of strangers at the door.
Below the clothesline,
behind the window covered in creepers,
he polishes the barrel of his gun,
and raises his glass to his afternoon music,
as the ribs begin to break apart and separate.

Hope you enjoyed it! Bye!

Hey guys!
I'm back!

I had such a nice conference, but I'm too lazy to go into too much detail right now. Next post, maybe?

Saturday was a lot of fun... I got to talk to Claire Messud and Andrew Hudgins, who were both very cool people, and encouraged my writing. Mr. Hudgins kept making fun of my being a "Yankee" and tried to make me turn red by telling as many crazy jokes as he could. The dance was a blast too.

HOWEVER. The next day was HELL.

First of all, I managed to twist my ankle. I imagine almost everyone has managed to have done that before, but I've never had anything worse than bruises. And my God, it hurts like a bitch. It took everyone a little while to notice that I wasn't getting up, and Paul finally asked if I needed medical attention. I, being a ho, said no, I was fine to walk.

Then I said my goodbyes to everyone, which was very sad. I'll miss those guys. *sniff*

When we got to Nashville Airport, everyone picked up their luggage and went inside. It took me a minute to realize that my ankle hurts even more when you put that much pressure on it. But somehow, I got it inside... where I had to wait in a huge line to check everything. It was extremely hot, and the pain and heat together were making me really dizzy. -_-

Then came a long, but kind of funny, series of events, in which I forgot my boarding pass in the gift shop, went to buy a Coke, then realized it was gone, panicked, and was paged by the gift shop, who had it, and needed my ID. A few minutes later, found my ID, got my boarding pass, and left. I forgot the Coke, so they threw it away.

The flight itself wasn't awful, but when I finally got home and was ready to see my parents again, they... were nowhere to be found. A frustrating ten minutes of rushing around the airport, trying to call/page them later, mommy finally showed up. By then, my bags were the last ones going around, but at least we got a skycab when my mom told the guy I was walking on a bad ankle.

Then we finally got home, and the power was out again. And it would be out for the next. 10 1/2. Hours.

And now it's Monday. And I need to catch up on everyone. But first, must get more ice for my ankle...

Missed you all!

   Yay ranting!
Okay, this post was meant for my semi-annual anime rantings... but I'll put something else in for you people who are either thinking, "Gah, she's going to talk about something I've never heard of again," or perhaps, "More anime rantings? Spare me."

So anyways!

Brandeis University
So I went to Brandeis, which is in Waltham, Massachusetts, for a college visit. Figured I might as well start early, ne? After all, my cousin Andrea graduated high school before she actually put any thought into college, and nobody wants to be like cousin Andrea. (Kidding, I love you Andrea, if you ever read this, don't hurt me ^__^)

Anyways, I was very, VERY impressed. The campus is gorgeous! On the back on the grounds, there's this huge castle, and according to a friend who goes there, the outside is basically a model of this castle in Switzerland. It's so pretty.

The academics seemed great as well... there's a lot of scientific research that goes on there, and they have great lab facilities. I may have to consider taking a few science classes if I attend!

But what I'm really interested in is, of course, the Creative Writing Department! I'm told it's new, selective, and competitive to get into. Well, I'll just have to put together one kickass portfolio, na?

I cannot watch enough of these in one day. Naruto has a gift of dragging these things out. WAAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH! After that 60,000 3 episode fight with Orochimaru, they still don't have the damn scroll!

I'm really anxious to see what happens... I mean, I'm told this "Accursed Seal" business is some pretty serious stuff. Awwwwww man. Just when I was starting to really like Sasuke, he's probably going to go all evil.

All the characters they introduced recently are... quite awesome. I love Shikamaru to death! And Rock Lee is incredibly awesome... I can't wait to see him not holding back! (God, that "GAI-SENSEI!""LEE!" exchange killed me...) But Hinata is one of my new favorites... I love that girl so much.

And now, I'm downloading the next 10 episodes. I'm so excited! *Squeal*

Peace Maker Kurogane: Vol. 2 (Translated)
Wahoo! I finally got to read it in English!

And I find that when you read it in English, you cry all the more. That manga is incredibly depressing, but at the same time, so wonderful and so good~!

That scene on the bridge... just so perfect. I always admire when someone pulls off the dynamics in a het couple that well, and Kurono Nanae-sensei does it SO well. On that note, Yamanami-san is a hell of an understanding guy, idiot that he may sometimes be. I was expecting him to flip out when he found out Akesato was a shinobi, but he didn't care because she loved him T.T Those two are too sweet for words.

Which makes the end of that chapter a wrench. A knife. Through. The heart. *Sobs* I hate it when they do things like this to me! *Screams* SHE WAS RIGHT BEHIND YOU, MORON! *Long string of curses*

PMK is a bit more quietly tragic than SI Peace Maker, since it chronicles the end of the Shinsengumi. No big battles (yet), just the character's lives slowly falling apart. The mangaka really loves her dramatic irony. She'll throw in a fairly happy or comedic scene once in a while, and for a minute, you think that everything is getting better. But then something will happen that reminds you, in a few short weeks/months, these people are going to die.

I almost don't want to keep reading, because it'll mean seeing the characters I've grown to adore die. It was hard enough reading at the end of book 3... I knew for a long time Okita-san had TB, but seeing it in writing... *sighs* And Ryouma's gone already, and possibly Akesato too, although a friend who translated it for me told me Suzu told her he'd let her live... so I have hope!

As for the situation between Suzu and Tetsu... I just have to see, I guess.

A mostly writing-related post. Heeeee.
I'm back to my summer routine of updating a bit more often, although I have nothing much to talk about. Strangely enough, when I do have something to talk about, I'm too tired to update.

I'm leaving for Sewanee on June 27th. I always knew I was a little apprehensive about it, but given all the intensely odd travel-related/writing related dreams I've had lately, maybe it's weighing on my mind more than I thought.

I just really don't know what to expect at all. I should have actually, y'know, looked into it before I applied. Not that I'm saying I didn't look into it at all, but I just knew that it was prestigious, there would be good, competant editors there, and I wouldn't have to be so nervous about reading my work anymore. But recently, I realized: this is my first trip by myself, and I'm spending two weeks with complete strangers in a completely unfamiliar environment, with pretty much no contact with the outside world, unless I convince my father to let me borrow his laptop. Blah. Times like this make me wish I wasn't so socially challenged. I'm going to end up kicking myself for going up to my room early every night. I'm going to have a roommate, too. Sure hope she's pleasant.

But from the sounds of it, I'll be able to work out a nice routine. There's an indoor swimming pool, after all. I can try and swim some laps; be active, even if just for two weeks. And the cafeteria selection might be enough to force me to actually wander outside my set food groups. And I have to do my own laundry. That's not going to be pretty, especially since yesterday my mom pointed out that I've been doing it wrong for almost a year now. (I'm glad I only did it rarely then...)

Plus, I'd love to bring some of my new stuff there, but I haven't written anything new in ages. I usually write my best when it's raining... I need a downpour, dammit! Send me a downpour! Actually, feeling vaguely inspired right now, but as always, I lack a starting place. Well, now that I type this, it's getting pretty dark outside. When it starts, I'll walk down to the river with my umbrella. If I can't think up something good on the way, I'm lost. Unless it decides not to rain. Aw.

I'm not sure when, but sometime this weekend we'll be flying up to Massachusetts for my cousin's graduation party. This is a family-only visit, as I haven't seen some of them in over a year. I love my family to death, but I'll bet anything that one hour into the party, I'm going to go hide in the basement. Or at least the graveyard across the street.

   I finally update!
I'm going to copy this post before I try anything with it. Because if it gets deleted again, I'll stab someone with a plate.

ANYWAYS! Time for my random blatherings.

What am I going to ramble about today? OMG_Naruto_rp (the hyperlinking didn't work, so just copy and paste into your browser if interested: http://www.greatestjournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=omg_naruto_rp.) A GreatestJournal based parody roleplay that lives for one sole purpose: to mock out-of-character Naruto fan-fiction. To do so, there are two RPers per character: one as the character themself, and one as the "clone" of the character, wreaking havoc and such.

Yes, the premise itself sounds very, very odd. That's because this RP is pure and utter crack. You read it, and wonder, "What the hell are these people on?" In fact, in even outcracks Kyuuri (the Peacemaker Kurogane RP which I am a part of, that has been slow anyway, due to finals and such)! It also looks just as addictive as Kyuuri... makes me want to join. Unfortunately, I think I need more Naruto knowledge first. Although I may be able to pull off the Iruka-clone, seeing as all I need to do is act like a battered housewife and call Kakashi "Scarecrow-chan."

Yes. The fan-fiction hurts.

Moving off and away from the anime-related world, we have the release of Harry Potter tomorrow. Yes, I am a diehard HP fan, and I can't wait to see what Cuaron did with the movie. I loved A Little Princess so much!

This book was my favorite, and my two favorite characters (Lupin and Sirius) show up as well!

Speaking of, I need to make my friend his birthday card (I'm taking him to HP as a birthday present) and do some of my summer reading (8 books and I haven't touched one!)

Shanny, my letter should reach you tomorrow. Hope you're feeling a bit better! Watch some Escaflowne!

Generally anime-themed post ^__^
Ah, I have been so lazy about updating! *Bows* Forgive me, everyone!

Well, as I like to do every once in a while, I'm going to talk about the animes I'm downloading right now! Excited?

...right, didn't think so ^_^ Anyways, here I go!

Kyou Kara Maou- (Last Episode Watched: 4 subbed, 6 raw)I love this show so very much. It really, really needs to have more than 10 episodes! In fact, there are about 12 novels of it, so I know that they have material for more than 10! I guess it's a budget thing. Anyways, it's an extremely funny show, with lots of pretty men crazy shounen-ai hintage. I believe Dagger said that it was rather like Demon Diary in some aspects, and I think that's a rather good comparison. I can't wait to see more, and see what happens! (One last fangirl note: I love Wolfram T__T)

Aishiteru ze Baby- (Last Episode Watched: 3) This show, about a handsome high school womanizer and the so-cute-it's-almost-illegal 5-year-old he's been put in charge of, is so adorable you could just melt. However, sheer adorable-ness alone isn't enough to keep me riveted. Although I'm intrigued to see where the relationships are going, I'm hoping the plot itself picks up soon, as I know it could, given the subject matter. I don't want it to turn into a 'Life Lesson Every Episode!' kind of anime. So for right now, while I'm enjoying it, I need to be more excited when a new episode is subbed, and more motivated to download it.

Monster- (Last Episode Watched: 4) Wow. This anime is GOOD. Possibly one of the only straight animes that doesn't bore or depress me. All I can really say is, it's intriguing, a little eerie, and watch it right now! (For those of you who are watching it... Johann got pretty good looking ^_^ Scary, but good looking)

Fullmetal Alchemist- Liscensed by FUNimation, it's coming out on DVD in mid-January, and going on the Cartoon Network lineup in October. Am I happy? Half and half, really. I can't wait to get it on DVD, but I'm quite sad that I won't get my fix every Monday. I wanted to see Al lay the smackdown! Also, I don't trust CN sometimes. *Shifty-eyed* Plus, Al's dub voice is terrible.

Peace Maker Kurogane- Liscensed by ADV, they still haven't said when they plan to release it on DVD. Hopefully, they'll have more details soon! Am I happy? YES! I cannot wait to get myself a box set. Until then, I'll live on my digisubs, and Kyuuri, of course (which I am getting an unhealthy addiction to. Logging is devouring my life!)

And that's... about it for today! Hope everyone's having a great weekend!

Now, back to studying. *Groan*
