I want to like Neil Gaiman, but Amanda Palmer is making it really. Fucking. Hard.

As you may or may not have heard, Focus on sucking Republican cock the Family is going to air an anti-choice ad during the Superbowl. If you think this is a load of bullshit, fill out a complaint form here, and let CBS know that you won't be watching any part of the Superbowl if this ad airs. (Even if you weren't planning on watching it in the first place.)

I'm not normally a big Salon fan, but this article is the most concentrated amount of win I've seen in a long time.

The Prime Minister resigned AGAIN. From the little I understand about Japanese politics, he would have been kicked out anyway once the new ruling party came into power, but seriously, people. This is the third PM to resign since I've moved here. Acting all nicey-nice is so culturally ingrained that no one has the balls to stand up to a little criticism.

Anyway, I finally made my big trading post over at [ profile] pokemon, and it went pretty well. My pokédex is at 401 seen, 350 obtained now. I also completed my berrydex and got some master balls to finally catch Mespirit and Cresselia, thanks to [ profile] magicpotion. ♥

I also finally found a Firefox add-on that will block specific websites. I'm hoping I can finally kick the sf_drama habit now.

• The heat and humidity are killing me.
• Going up to Big Nag tomorrow for dollie and gay bar fun with [ profile] triplepunch + SO, [ profile] misspaulette, and [ profile] anruiukimi.
• Had a truly awesome moment at karaoke when I found out you can get this song with the actual video.
• My cell phone is the best cell phone ever, because it now has a matching leopard print tail.
• Really looking forward to the new Pokéwalker, and hoping it will help spur me into both losing the weight I've gained, and getting to know Kyoto better.
• Kakigoori is the greatest invention ever.
• Mint Oreo McFlurries are good too.
Barney Frank is my hero. ♥

As Ilona once said to me, "Whatever you think about him personally, you have to admit, that man can sing." And it's absolutely true.

Crazy shit, man.

First of all, [ profile] rkold and [ profile] misspaulette are sneaky, devious, awesome people. They planned a surprise birthday party for me! ♥ There was ice cream, presents, JET people, non-JET people, dollie people, non-dollie people, cheezburgerz, and all-night karaoke! ^o^ (Fastest seven hours ever, btw.) We didn't get the ¥10,000 parfait, but the group two tables over did.

Then we stumbled home around 6 Saturday morning to get some sleep before going over to Tenshi no Sato. Sato was a bit of a bust -- the release date was pushed back on the mini Komame plushie, the outfits we wanted were sold out, and all the good cakes were gone -- butttttt Kun-maybe-Tobin got her wings! ♥ Sooooooo cute~~~~ Be glad I have no good place to take photographs, or I would spam you with a billion of them. Then I had a yummy sort of carbonara with pumpkin for dinner, and once again went home to try to catch the bare minimum of sleep before the next day's events.

Sunday was Osaka Comic City (tiny! only two halls!), so Rachel, Paulette, and I headed down there to meet Irena and Rachel's friend who omg works for Capcom and is totally awesome. And a big Phoenix/Edgeworth fangirl, which explains so much about the English version of the games, lol. But most importantly, I found out the answer to the question I've had for a while, and I'M RIGHT AND FANDOM IS WRONG. \o/ SUCK IT, FANDOM.

Anyway, I got a couple AtoZuka doujinshi, some Roy/Ed, and a rather long Dean/Sam book by my favorite Supernatural circle (who has also branched out into Chronicles of Narnia, which is perfect for their style, but I soooo don't want to go there). There's no smex, unfortunately, but it wins just because Dean is stranded on a planet with a bunch of Docomo mushrooms. But actually, I was much more excited about my non-doujinshi purchases. I got a new cleaning cloth for my glasses, which is not only so much better than my old crappy one, but has Oshitari proclaiming his love for megane on it! There were two booths with the cutest original kitty artwork ever, and I got a bunch of postcards, an eco-bag, a cleaner strap for my DS, and a notepad. And at assorted other places, I got a necklace, a bookmark, and some stationery and a cell phone strap for gifts.

Then, because, you know, we hadn't spent enough money on porn, we headed off to K-Books and Animate and the Osaka Volks. I actually may have not bought anything. I was tempted by a post GS4 Phoenix Wright doujinshi because it had a super hot older!megane!Edgeworth on the cover, but other than that, the art wasn't that good, so I passed. We finished off the evening with dinner at some garlic place that had the best garlic bread evar.

So yeah. I went into work Monday morning having spent no more time in my apartment over the weekend than was absolutely necessary to sleep and shower. =_= Everything was awesomely fun, but no recharge time whatsoever. Monday, had to work late. Tuesday, realized holy crap, yes, all the applications for the big Volks event did have to be mailed together, and had to arrive by November 3rd, sent out a bunch of frantic e-mails, and met Rachel for a surprisingly filling vegan dinner, although my teriyaki tofu steak was more like tofu and less like steak than I would have liked. Wednesday, had to meet Paulette to get her application, and we were both in the mood for a movie, so we decided to see Eagle Eye instead of doing silly things like catching up on sleep or watching Supernatural. It was the right choice. Thursday, spent my lunch break and the post office and worked late again, but treated myself to dinner at McD's and a delicious piece of chocolate cake from the local bakery. Friday, met up Paulette again, as it was 31% off Baskin Robbins' double cone day, an event that is not to be missed. (Ghost World = ♥) And we swung by Animate so I could pick up my MaruMa OTP mug! Seriously, it has chibi-Yuuri and chibi-Conrad surrounded by sixty-three hearts. Even the handle is shaped like a heart! IT IS OBVIOUSLY CANON. Then I came home and went to bed. And spent a relaxing three-day weekend doing laundry and finally getting a chance to watch Heroes and Supernatural. Yes, an entire week without even a single spare hour to watch Supernatural. It was hell.

But now we can all rejoice in a new birth of freedom from batshit fundie Republicans! Thank you, America, for not repeating the same dumbass mistake as four years ago. I think, for the first time in my life, I'm actually excited about my country's president.

I'm going to bed now. DON'T DISAPPOINT ME, AMERICA.

LOL, the police have my neighborhood blocked off because of the G8 talks. Maybe I won't be going out this evening after all.

LOLOLOL, well isn't this the pot calling the kettle black. Hey, Dobson, here's a Bible passage for you: "You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother's eye." Matthew 7:5

Iran: Paragon of Free Speech
There's so much wrong with this that I don't even know where to begin. I hope that there's a special section of hell for people who still think that WWII was a big hoax perpetrated by the Jews just so they could steal land that was, y'know, theirs in the first place.

Soy: Satan's Own Bean
Holy lack of scientific evidence, Batman! This article is so special, it deserves its own 100x100 summary:

Because of [ profile] kanaliya, I stayed up all night watching Family Guy clips on YouTube. =_= Which reminds me, Hinoko, you need to see this one!
[Error: unknown template video]

And uh, this one.

Aw crap, now I'm gonna be late for work. Dammit! *shakes fist*

Ms. Grouchypants got adopted! ^o^ And Skiddie got upgraded from Caged Cat to Free Range Cat. I was so happy to see her out of the cage~ Molly and Sheddy McShedsalot are still there, and there's a new cat that has six toes on each paw. Even though the Milford cats aren't ready to be adopted yet, adoptions are up because of people hearing about them, so overcrowding won't be quite as bad as it would have been. But it's really awesome when I go in and ask if there's anything specific that needs to be done, and I'm told, "Well these kittens here need to become more acclimated to humans, so just hold them for a while." Yeah. Like I said, best volunteer job EVER. >o<

And now, current events:


If you are this stupid, you should not be allowed on eBay. Or to be in control of large sums of money. Or to like, cross the street without holding on to someone's hand. I do feel a little sorry for the bidder, since the seller is being deliberately misleading, but really, if you're going to spend $900 on something, you need to do your homework. WELCOME TO INTERNETLAND.
