Things people do-

– lie to your seamstress about what size clothing you wear.  Telling me you’re Y when you’re X is not helpful in any way, it makes my job harder and I end up charging you more for additional work.  Besides when I measure the person, I know they are not the size they say.

I got some interesting spam today – this ‘auditor’ whats to split about 11 million dollars between me and himself.  He says it’s unclaimed funds owing to the death of some family and there is no next of kin, now he can’t get the cash because he works for the bank but if a foreigner tries to claims it, he’ll do all the paperwork for 70% of the funds.  His reason is that after five years the cash will be claimed by the National Treasurey and why should that happen when ‘I’ could have some of it.  I got halfway through the email to where he listed the date of death – 2000.  Naturally he wants my phone numbers and banking details but the guy can’t even count! 

I just don’t know if I could trust a guy who can’t count… 😛

It did make a change from the penis enlargements.

I tried to register for this one site and apparently I’m already registered only I’m not.  So someone is using my name – well, that’s the only explanation I can think of.  Had it been a Bleach site it’s quite possible that I have registered before and forgot but it wasn’t a Bleach site so I don’t know. 

I have a kana chart that I made on my keys and a guy on the train, who I thought was Chinese but wasn’t, asked me if I speak Japanese and he thought my chart was coolbecause his granmother had one just like it. 

Anyway, I have some sewing work to do and I need to finish scanning a kana practice book.  The scanning takes a while but I read Black Cat while I wait so it’s fine really.

VII again

April 24, 2007 at 10:09 (Uncategorized)

There is news yet again of a remake for FFVII.  This one has more substance in that Square is focusing on remakes and as always VII comes up, plus there is the 10 year anniversary stuff.  Of course, they could just be announcing XIII Haersis.

I’m not a great fan of ‘health’ foods – Kauai and such (but I do enjoy two smoothies from Kauai), they always mix too many flavours together.  I’ve tried eating from Freshstop a few times now and every time I end up with a migraine.  I don’t know what they do to their sandwiches but I refuse to eat from them from now on – I’ll make my own lunch.

Strangely – since turning 26 I’ve had no pain in my shoulder/neck this is good.  So apart from my knee (I fell up the escalator at C/Walk) being 26 has been really good for my health – imagine the improvement when I turn 27 but I have to wait a year for that.

I’ve been reading Black Cat (manga) and I’m really enjoying it – it’s totally predictable but rather cool.  I finished watching an anime called ‘Scrapped Princess’ – I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.  It’s full of fantasy elements that I like, again, totally predictable but really cool.  It was originally light novels, I wouldn’t mind reading them.

Fiction note:  Day Four – nothing, gomen.  OF – loads, pages have been written.  Various cross-overs – nothing – but no one is waiting for those.  I will actually seriously try get some work done on Day Four by the end of the week – I have two full days in the dungeon.

This day is quite a day for events – there’s Aki-chan and my birthday party, parties this evening and my sister is having a conference this morning. 

Just read the lastest Naruto and Sasuke’s really cool but then, he has always been a favorite of mine anyway.  I sort of have the feeling Haragen is coming to an end – I’m in two minds while I love it to bits, I don’t want it to run on and lose the plot and whine about rubbish.

I have to go to Canal Walk this morning to buy some material – I was going to CT but Aki-chan is going that way so I thought I would grab a lift.  I just hope I have what I’m looking for, Claremont didn’t and they’re not getting it.

Isn’t it lovely…

April 18, 2007 at 18:41 (Uncategorized)

What a nice day I had.  I went to bed really early last night and woke up without the alarm clock and no pain in my neck or shoulder – awesome.  It continued for the rest of the day.

After I had cleaned the shop and made some earrings, I set about reading all the manga I got this morning – I took me hours; it was fantastic!

And I’m going to dinner this evening 🙂

I’ve finished my second assignment for April with no mad rushing like the first one.  I’ll post it tomorrow – it’s due next Wednesday so I always post the week before.  Unisa suggest two to three days, they have too much faith in the postal system.

I’m feeling rather flu-ish today and the ache in my shoulder has spread to my neck so I can’t look up easily.  Tension from the pain is causing my fingers to tingle so I might have to wear the neck brace again – it’s a torture device that doesn’t deliver pain but inconvenience.  It also means complete strangers walk up to me and want to know what happened – were you in a car crash?  did you have insurance?.  I might actually just wear it at home.

Fiction note:  I wrote a poem on Sunday, it’s somewhat fanfic-ish (KHII).  I’m going to translate it into Japanese later.   Day Four … I’m only going to mention it again when something substantial has happened.  I’ve enjoyed writing it so part of me doesn’t want to finish it but others are waiting.

I’ve realised my new job title.  I thought all this time that I was a sales assistant at the dungeon but I was wrong, I am actually a problem solver.  That places drives us crazies.

 I’ve been cutting out patterns – I really don’t like it but I can’t afford to pay anyone else to do it.  I once paid Aki-chan in manga for something but I can’t remember what. 

! ! It’s my birthday on Wednesday ! !

Ha, not actually to do with FFXIII at all.

I happened to notice this morning while looking at the calender that Friday the Thirteenth followed Good Friday this year.   So far its been a bit unlucky because I’m working ten hours today instead of my usual five. 

Japanese was cancelled yesterday due to Sensei having a sore throat thus unable to speak but there is no Japanese for a while because Sensei is going to Japan for five weeks.  Must be pretty awesome to go on a holiday somewhere.

Have to go into CT tomorrow and get some supplies.  Sewing supplies; I’m almost completely out of black thread and zips as well as I need100 military style buttons and cotton tape.  I may have to order the buttons.  On the plus side, I’ve finally managed to find a place (online 😦 ) where I can get short pile fabric to make a moogle.

Fiction note:  it’s slow but happening.

I ate some chocolate and I paid for it yesterday, well last night actually.  My head is really tender today and my shoulder is killing me – it’s been aching steadily these past two weeks.  Unfortunatly working at the computer makes it worse. 

 What a moan today.

Best yet…

“This product is rounded sealed with rubber band to ensure its characteristics of elecsticity, comefort and long lastion usage.  It is best suited for people at any age to their hair when having shower.”

I didn’t get the bookshop job – it was given to one of the part-time assisants.  I was offered a night-time position but had to turn it down; no car.  I’m really, seriously, wanting to get into sewing to sell (I started last night – one skirt so far but all my current cosplay is finished) so I’m not too dissapointed.
