Six weeks of studying, and I did worse on the second practice test than I did on the first one. I might as well just write off the last six weeks of my life as a complete failure.

I was checking MangaFox's update page, and saw a series called Neko no Koi listed. Naturally, I'll check out anything that has to do with cats, so I click. Bonus: it's BL. Double bonus: it takes place in Kyoto. I'm pretty excited about that, so I start reading. And.

Well, first of all, the scanlator used Electroharmonix to represent a traditional Japanese storefront sign. In my opinion, fonts like that are pretty offensive to begin with, but I could at least give it a pass if this were some kind of acid neon dystopian future Tokyo. For a traditional Kyoto machiya? Um no, what the hell.

But, I thought, maybe I'm being a little too sensitive.

And then it got so much worse.

"You jez told them that it warn't too sweet."

"'Cawse it is, this 'ere shop has been passed down for six generations." (That first word is supposed to represent "of course", btw.)

"If'n you sit dere, your kimono'll git dirty."

"Imma always be wit'chu, Chii."

WHAT THE FUCKING HELL IS THIS. YOU FAIL. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200. YOU MAY NOT USE YOUR GET OUT OF FAIL FREE CARD. I almost don't know which is more offensive, the idea that all Kansai-jin talk like Cletus the Slack-jawed Yokel trying to teach himself AAVE, or that, even if the analogy were accurate, this is still a complete failure of an attempt to write out a dialect. NO ONE on the entire planet talks like that. Oh, and the extra brain-numbing bonus? All four of those lines come from the same character. Just seriously, I don't even.

In far less ragey news, Shounen Maid broke into the top 500 at MangaFox. It was within the top 200 before OneManga closed, then it got pushed back to like 8000. Anyway, chapter 6 is here or here.

So, about yesterday, my knee finally stopped hurting. (Unless I forget and kneel on it directly.)

Today, I woke up with an ear infection.

I just walked to 7-11 in the frickin' pouring-ass rain, because I was afraid that $300 might not be enough for Super Comic City tomorrow. And then the machine told me I can't use my ATM card until 8 in the morning. What the hell. x_x

In my defense, about $100 is already earmarked for stuff I'm getting for other people. And I know it's stupid and ridiculous to even contemplate spending $200 on doujinshi for myself, but there's soooo many good circles going! >o< And I'll have to move quickly to get to them all, so there's no time to go back if I decide later that I want something. *flails* Whyyyyyyyy does it always have to end so early????

Things were going so well, then crash and burn. You think I'd learn eventually.

Fuck this, I'm gonna do dishes and go back to playing GS4.

x_x I was "invited" to a Christmas party tomorrow. And by "invited", I mean I'm expected to prepare and run some sort of English Christmas game for 20-30 elementary school students. And for the privilege of all this, I get to pay ¥4000. And have I mentioned that I've wasted my whole day doing nothing and haven't even started on it?

JLPT is tomorrow (how can it be December already?!), and I'm not likely to pass. x_x But because there is a possibility of passing, I have to waste my whole weekend studying instead of going sightseeing during peak foliage time.

Anyway, I has a flickr page. But no pictures from Japan yet. I'm still uploading road trip pictures right now.

Ugh. I swear, if I was made of any more fail, I'd be a black hole.

In addition to getting basically nothing at all done over the weekend, now I can't sleep. At all. Luckily, there's no classes today, so I can probably beg off on nenkyuu. But I'm still extremely pissed off at myself, and furthermore, what the freaking hell is wrong with my internet.

Oh, [ profile] rkold I never did get around to ordering those DVDs, so don't expect them to be showing up. >.>

GAAARRRRRR Some drunk person just rang my very loud and anoying "hey I'm at the front door let me up" buzzer AT TWO IN THE MORNING and woke me from my dream where I was the writer/director/star of my class' entry for the cultural festival! And we were just about to do the big finale!! >OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GEKIDASA.

Goddammit LJ, can't you ever have a dramathon when I'm not insanely busy?

Yeah, and that about sums it up.

I was driving to the mall yesterday when I looked in my rear view mirror and saw this huge pickup truck behind me with a stuffed Tigger and Piglet on the dashboard. My first thought? "Oh, it's a Tigger/Piglet shipper."

Yes, I chastised my brain thoroughly for that.

The people next door are supposed to be moving out today, which means this should be the last time I ever have to use this tag! \o/

I need a woe icon. Why don't I have a woe icon? Emo Kaidoh will have to do.

TMI of an OB/GYN nature )

Maybe all this is a sign that I should just stick to girls. >_>

P.S. [ profile] jagen13 I love the picture you sent. ♥ (That's what I get for sending you a bag of flaming poo, isn't it? XD) It's harder than it looks, but I'll keep trying~
