Madam Butterfly

Went to the opera last night.  At first I was unsure but it got better after I stopped reading the subtitles – they were talking [singing] such rubbish but the music was awesome.  We were on the balcony so we could see into the orchestra pit – that was truly fantastic.  I love watching musicians play.  I prefer the ballet though.

I have two exams today… the two worst ones…  I don’t know them nearly well enough; one I have no interest in and the other is just confusing – communication law is the confusing one.  Though the exam on Monday went quite well – I was pleased.

New names old concepts

In my exam on Tuesday I came across ‘mobile working’.  I had no idea what it was so three possibilities came to mind 1) it is something I don’t know, 2) it is a made up thing for the exam or 3) they meant telecommuting.  I went with telecommuting but looked it up when I got home.  After reading the brochure with its zen-like images, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is telecommuting with a weird made up name. 

I’m also up to my eyeballs in flu or is it a cold?  There is no body pain… does that make it a cold?  Though I have no energy – wow, I’m out of breath just hanging up the washing and media studies is making no sense but a little bit more sense than communication law.   I’m spending more time sneezing than writing.  But I’ve been good – I’ve resisted reading Trigun [otherwise I’ll never get any studying done] but I’m feeling so lifeless – it’s calling me.

And Japanese holiday is finished. 

And I lost all my games at the Go tournament last Saturday – even the ‘9 stone 150 point’ handicap game.

But I have an awesome A&S entry for Cowshed 😀

Manga update

May 13, 2009 at 10:14 (Uncategorized)

I read a oneshot at Mangahelpers called Medaka Box – it going to be serialized in WSJ.  It was funny with good art but I can’t think it’s something I would read weekly.  The plot as far as I can tell shall be about a student council dealing with the comments they receive in a suggestion box.  It sound limiting in terms of story line and plot.

RustBlaster – good art but totally a wabbing manga.  A good way to waste a couple of hours [only six chapters].  And it’s full of pretty vampires.  Attempted Kuroshitsuji by the same artist – boring!  But the art is still good.

1/2 Prince was suggested to me…  It’s such a gender bender girl manga – annoys me.  Art is okay to good.

Juushin Enbu 16 was good as always with great art 😀  And there was much talking in Air Gear. 

Started Trigun – the art, for me, is bad but it is funny and Aki-chan says it gets better. 

I’m losing hope with Bleach – I’ve been reading Bleach since 2005 and over the last year and a half the story has been waning.  The fights are getting too long with pointless powerups and story updates are far apart.

Baked out

It started with lemon curd then came chocolate and almond muffins followed by a sponge to finish with lemon cupcakes.  I coated the sponge in left over lemon curd – it is so tasty.  The cupcakes are tasty too – I don’t know about the muffins [don’t like muffins].  That should last until… maybe Sunday. 

I’m done with Media Studies for the day.  Onward to Integrated Organisational Communication and then a bit of Investigating English [maybe]. 

I’ve also given up on the second ‘season’ of FMA anime.  The first episode was funny but after that… it’s just not the manga.  Read the oneshot Medaka Box – going to serialised in WSJ.  I like the art but the story, while amusing, doesn’t really have much appeal.  I think it could get tiresome rather quickly.  YAY! for WSJ this week.

Polite spam

May 5, 2009 at 10:59 (Uncategorized)

Occasionally I get comments on D/Art saying what a great artist I am and I must follow this link to a “competition” site where I could win stuff – I delete these.  Today I received an email from someone who claims to have read my latest story, this is what he said

I enjoyed your recent fanfic because it was very creative and detailed. I could envision everything you were describing perfectly.

My latest creation was an Air Gear poem.  There was no detail and only a fan of Air Gear and a fan of poetry could possibly get it and then they might not even like it.  I think I find polite spam more annoying than general spam.

And it is really nice to be back in CT.
