Sad face, for I have no more episodes of ST:TOS to watch. *emo tear* The final episode, though... lol forever. XD But I was disappointed that there was no money shot of girl!Kirk and his posse. Kirk and Spock were totally holding hands though, so that makes up for it. (The title also makes me want to rewrite it with Phoenix Wright characters.) Watching TOS only makes me appreciate even more how awesomely awesome Zachary Quinto was in XI. He really did his homework for that role. Oh, I can't wait for the wave of Star Trek doujinshi that I know is coming~~

RL has been so full of fail lately. Between sickness and stress and more sickness and insane humidity and laziness, I can't seem to do a single damn thing right. There have been a few cool happenings, though. I went to a kabuki production of Twelfth Night, which was awesome, and to a Hanshin Tigers game, which was also awesome. I met up with [ profile] konoha for festivalness and purikura and TeniPuri karaoke, and [ profile] misspaulette and I wore yukata to the Gion Matsuri parade (and had a really good purikura session afterwards). Yesterday's eclipse was pretty cool too, but of course it was overcast, so I could only catch a few glimpses of it.

In contrast to RL, Pokémon has been going awesome. I finally completely finished LeafGreen and transferred all my keepers to Diamond, and started playing Emerald. Emerald's keeping my interest a lot better, since it's not a rehash of something I've already played. And also because my game file is a Phoenix Wright AU where a Jirachi wish gone wrong has left Phoenix trapped in the body of Miles' Torchic. X3 Speaking of Jirachi... I has one! And yes, it's legit. Yay for Japanese wi-fi presents~ I also got the special Shokotan Pichu which lets you get the Gizamimi Pichu in GS. I haven't gotten movie Arceus yet, but I'll be doing that soon. I just hope that I don't actually have to sit through the whole movie to do it. :P I've also been getting a lot of good trades through GTS lately. Including an Usaring with Pokérus!!!! *throws confetti* So now all my pokes are infected/recovered. I also got a Shuckle named Noodle and a shiny Mew through [ profile] pokemon. The Mew is hacked of course, but who cares? It's Mew! ♥ OH and they have so many new plushies at the Pokémon Center!! I got a Snorlax and a sleeping Gizamimi Pichu which is the CUTEST THING EVER. I'm thinking of getting a Magikarp next time, just for the lols. The Lapras is really cute, too....

Today's earthquake was big enough to be put on the USGS map! It was a 4.8, but the epicenter was about 60km northeast of here, so it was still pretty mild, but there was definitely more shaking going on than any of the other earthquakes so far.

Anyway, what people really want to know about: Phoenix Wright: The Not-As-Gay-As-You-Would-Expect Musical!

spoilerzzzzz )

tl;dr 6.5/10, would lol again. I just hope it doesn't turn the fandom to shit like TeniMyu did.

So far this week, I've seen Phoenix and Edgeworth dance in sparkly tuxedos, and I won a Volks rei-tenshi. (For you non-Volks people, that's one of their rarest dolls, with a first-hand value of $0 because you can't buy one from the company, and a second-hand value of over $1000.)

:O <-- me

Why, look what I got in the mail today!

Yes, that is a ticket for Phoenix Wright: The Cross-dressing Musical! I bought it off a ticket scalping reselling website for only slightly more than twice the face value. (Sorry, [ profile] misspaulette and [ profile] anruiukimi, but I didn't think you guys would want to pay that much, and three seats together would be impossible to find, anyway. ^^;;) But it arrived really fast! I'm impressed!

Ummm, in other news, I've been really busy, if busy means watching tons of downloaded shows. I marathoned all of Merlin (Arthur=hot, y/y?), caught up on 3 eps of Kuroshitsuji, 8 eps of Tales of the Abyss, and watched 11 more eps of GetBackers (seriously, they could just make the entire show onsen filler episodes, and that would be fine). I really want to watch Maria†Holic, so I hope that a group that doesn't suck picks it up. I'm also a little pissed off at Shinsen Subs. Does it really take an extra two weeks just to re-render something in xvid format?

Anyway. I also did a ton of laundry and dishes, so it's not as if I've been entirely lazy. Tomorrow I'll need to do all my New Year's grocery shopping, since Wednesday I'm catching Pokeymans and then going to the aquarium with [ profile] jougetsu. :D Holy crap, the year's almost over!

Oh, and have a piece of Christmas cake:

The good: Griss is at Kansai International and should arrive tomorrow or Monday!! (Don't know if EMS gets delivered on Sundays here or not.) And those of you who are asking about what mold he is will just have to wait until I post pictures. ^_~

The bad: Couldn't get Phoenix Wright tickets. *emo* Also am still completely unprepared for tomorrow's party, what the hell was I thinking.

The frustrating: Realizing that your dream dolls that you never knew were your dream dolls are two of the hardest-to-get sculpts out there. Even more so when you HAD ONE OF THOSE SCULPTS AND SOLD IT.

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.

And now, for another rousing edition of "Look At All the Crap Emily Bought!" I ended up NOT going to Comic City today after all, because there's a bigger one in August, and it's a lot of time and money and hassle just for some mediocre porn that I already have too much of anyway. Plus, the group that was going wanted to see Juno afterwards, which was all hell no. But I promised [ profile] rkold that I'd send her package today, and hey, I was already dressed, so I went down to Kyoto Station. In case you're wondering, Kyoto Station is where the central post office is, which is open all day on Sunday, and there's also a big craft store there, and I needed to buy some snaps for my h.Naoto skirt. (That's right, bitches, I said h.Naoto.) And the easiest way to get from the subway to the post office to the craft store without getting soaked because yay, rainy season, is to use the underground mall. And I was weak. But most of it was stuff I really did need. I got some socks and a couple calculators and a necklace stand at the 3 coin shop, where everything is ¥300. Of course, that's not including tax, so it's actually impossible to buy anything with 3 coins, but whatever. Then I went looking for the shoe store I had seen earlier, because they had Toppers, and I really REALLY needed a new pair of sneakers. But I was distracted on the way by a really cute blouse. >.> It was a little expensive, and I probably shouldn't have bought it, but it actually fit, and it's SO Japanese. So it can be my token Japanese girly shirt. I just need to find the right thing to layer it with. Then I found the shoe store, and they were cute and fit well and were actually not that expensive considering what shoes in Japan usually go for, and considering how hard it is to find shoes here that you can actually wear all day without wanting to shoot yourself, so I got them. And then I thought I was done, but a display of folding fans caught my eye. Of course the one I liked was the ¥3000 one in a display of ¥1000 ones, but it was really nice, and I really needed one, so I got it anyway. I was also tempted to get the Disney's Belle perfume that store had, but I didn't. XD The End. Until next week, when the sale at Black Peace Now starts. >_>;;
This shopping trip was brought to you by the numbers 7 and 11, which is the only place I can get cash on weekends. *fang*

But yes, I saw Indiana Jones yesterday! *fangirl* It was far from perfect; spoilers )

Back on the topic of doujinshi, last weekend I went with Ilona and [ profile] nightflight to a Phoenix Wright doujin and cosplay event. It was small, but fun. There were lots of good cosplayers, including a cute-as-a-button Apollo, a freaking amazing 6-years-ago Mia, a perfect Judge, and a Jean Armstrong, lololol. There was also a raffle, and Ilona won a pair of Gavinners or whatever the Japanese name of the band is guitar picks, which she gave to me. And if your birthday was in June, you got a bag of Godot's special blend coffee. As for doujinshi, there wasn't much for pairings that I like, but I got two Gavincest, one when they were younger, which I can fully endorse, and one just because it's a whole lot of really well-drawn cat-ear porn. Ironically enough, after explaining to my cohorts how Klavier and Apollo just didn't have that "spark" in the game, they sparked in my own mind, so I think I'm an official fan of the pairing now. ^^

Long sentences are long. Also rainy season sucks, even though it looks like we got off easy this year. Also, I want to punch American Guy in the face, but that's an entry for another time.

Oh, and I uploaded my old Yami no Matsuei music video to youtube. Validate me, plz.

So, thanks to my upstairs neighbor who was being really loud all night long (not that I needed very much incentive), I finished GS4 last night. My thoughts: NEEDS MOAR EDGEWORTH.

spoilers )

I'm also enjoying catching up on Supernatural. But it's slightly nervewracking, because I take it way too seriously, and I hate having to put my trust in a group of writers, because they invariably end up doing something really stupid, like the werewolf episode. It's never good when you care more about a series' characterization and continuity than the writers do. ^^; Which is why I don't read mainstream US comics anymore, but that's a rant for another time. I just hope that the thing I've been noticing and really like (which is that Sam only goes postal on those who threaten or harm Dean) is intentional and not just a fluke on the writers' part.

Oh, I also saw Prince Caspian, like a week ago. It wasn't bad, but seriously, the entire script should have been rewritten. I mean WTF, if you can't fit everything from the book into the movie in the first place, it's not the time to go adding things that were never in the book to begin with?? I was VERY surprised about Eddie Izzard, though. I had no idea! Internet, you have let me down! All in all, it was well worth going, if for no other reason than REEPICHEEP PLUSHIE CUTEST THING EVER OMG. >o< And that is why Japanese movie theaters are better than American movie theaters.

And oh yes, I will kill anyone who spoils me for Indiana Jones. >:E

I just had a dream that was half Pokémon, half Phoenix Wright, and half Frasier. Needless to say, it was ALL AWESOME.

Damn it, I'm going to have to go looking for Frasier/Niles slash again, aren't I?

Normally, I wait until after the 6th to switch my default to a non-holiday icon, but not this year, oh no. (It took a ridiculously long time to make, too....)

And oh, yes, semi-porny Phoenix/Edgeworth drabbly thing over here.
chocolate_chip: (Default)

With the :O and the >o< and the >w< and the SLASH and wryyyyyyyyyyyy is Godot so sexy and cruel at the same time, and the Edgey angst, and did I mention slash? (Literally, more UST than you can shake a stylus at!)

Ahem. But actually, I've been doing other things besides sitting around playing PW3. No, not cleaning. I've become obsessed with the Darkly Dreaming Dexter series. Finished the first two novels in less than a day. (Can't find the third on BT, unfortunately.) Downloading TV series now. >_> 'Cause yeah, I need more ways to waste my time. But you know when a book alludes to a guy wanting to date his older brother, it's FTW. XD

[edit] Holy adjhfgakwhrgja, "It wouldn't be right for us to discuss things so intimately."??!!?!!!?!! JESUS, WOULD THE TWO OF YOU GO HAVE SEX ALREADY THE UST IS KILLING ME!!!!!

(Seriously, I'm amazed that my DS hasn't broken from the strain.)

This post brought to you by Capcom and Phoenix Wright 3, the gay that keeps on gaying.

I just had the most awesome dream last night, and I have to write it down before I forget. It started out as Phoenix Wright, with the role of Phoenix being played by my dad. (And no, it was NOT a slash dream, so don't ask. :P) We were trying to solve this big murder/conspiracy thing, so we were running around gathering evidence, and not always in the most legal of ways. Breaking into an office building to steal files and driving on the wrong side of the road were both involved. (People still drive on the right side in my dreams.) The victim had also left behind a bunch of random posters, news clippings, assorted objects, etc., and we were sure they meant something, but we couldn't figure out what. I don't quite remember the first method I tried to use to decipher them, but it ended up not working, and our three days of trial were running out, but then I realized that each item corresponded with a song, like the song would be "Cruel Cruel Summer", and one of the news articles would have the word "cruel" in it, so "cruel" would be the keyword, and you had to find all the keywords and arrange them to make the message left by the victim. Then the dream morphed into Harry Potter, and I guess I should cut this in case of spoilers )


Kyoto is very awesome and also very hot. My area of town is pretty modern, so I don't have all the old shrines and stuff that the main part of the city has, but it also means my apartment's a bit nicer (and has air conditioning!) There's a Book Off right across the street, but I'm going to be good and not buy anything there until I get my first paycheck. (What is the Prince of Tennis OVA "Invitation" DVD, anyway?) There's an ice cream shop a few blocks away, but ironically, it's too hot to go there. I feel very sure that I'll horribly offend everyone I come in contact with and do a terrible job at school, but I think a lot of that is me being thrown for a loop by my uncle's death. :/ Today I need to figure out the washing machine, and then repack so I can go to Gifu for Obon.

Oh, damn.

Edgeworth heaved a sigh as he slumped into his fancy leather desk chair. He massaged his temples, waiting for the two aspirin he'd just taken to start working.

"Rough day?"

The prosecutor looked up to see a spiky-topped silhouette leaning against the doorframe to his office.

"You ought to know," he grumbled, "seeing as how you're the cause of it."

Wright's grin was easily visible as he crossed the dimmed office. He leaned over Edgeworth's chair.

"I can promise that the night will more than make up for it."

>< Curse you, Capcom! *shakes fist* And you two as well!
