Is by Meimi, that wonderful Goddess who brings joy and happiness to the hearts of Ingrids.
This time, Meimi brought joy by doing a layout of Isumi Shinichirou and Waya Yoshitaka, of Hikaru no Go. It is full of wub.

So, it's three in the afternoon. I've gotten as much done on my essays as I'm going to and my pants are almost dry. I go outside and ask Dad if I can practise my driving today in Bel (who just got back from Doctor John's a few days ago, yay!). Dad mumblemumblemaybe. Later, around five, Ingrid has still not driven Bel, and Dad goes to Wallmart to buy things, including laces for Ingrid's beloved boots. He comes back after six. Bootlaces are not produced.

It's eight-thirty. Dad stops outside the door to Ingrid's room and asks if she'd like to go out in the car.

"It's eight-thirty at night, Dad!"

Another day goes by where Ingrid is unable to touch the sweet and wonderful Bel Thorne, and there is sadness, and much frustration, because she needs her license by the time school starts.

Today is the day. Today Justice Squad's first episode . . . airs. Or something. As I'm subscribed to the Slightly Warped mailing list, I've already seen it, but now all can see it! It's off to a great start with an alien invasion from the Jennifer Hanson Empire and I spent far too much time giggling while I read it.

Justice Squad is, of course, the sequel to Jason Gaston's three year on-line sitcom The Liam Smith Show, which everyone should also read. It starts off rather rocky, because Jason didn't originally intend for it to be a long term kind of thing, but by the second episode things pick up. Don't judge it on it's first episode, it's not a display of Jason's writing quality. The Liam Smith Show stomps all over sitcom and sci-fi clichés following the adventures of Liam Smith, recently relocated to Las Vegas, and resident of Upda Creek Apartments. While some of the characters are one-note, others never fail to bring a smile to my face, especially Bippo the Clown, Thad Coffee, and, in the later seasons, Jesse and Jonathan.

Yes yes, I'm a happy Ingrid with the start of Justice Squad. I dance with joy, because I read Jason's "shows" more regularly than I bother catching anything on tv.


It's gotten cool outside. I'm happy. I may work in the garden for a bit after I have a clean pair of pants to put on. Or I may just stay inside with many cups of tea and only leave the house to walk Wapi. I still need new boot laces though, damn, wearing sandals is bad for my highly tender feet.

Probably going to work on the essays for the SGEU Scholarship that are due in less than two weeks, read some manga (specifically the CLAMP Campus Detectives tankouban and Gohou Drug, all of which need to be returned to Jinxer . . . soonish), and pour over The Sky Road, a great book which I'm finally starting to get the feel of, so I should be able to sit down and read it for hours on end now.

It's cold again. Hopefully be tolerable enough to work in the garden tomorrow while Dad's in Saskatoon. Maybe he'll buy me fixative. I need fixative. ~smiles at Keiichi pictures~

I've been reading The Sky Road. It amuses me. Communism with anime references (was that Wedding Peach?). This bit also amuses me.

"In the beginning, God made the Big Bang, and there was light. After the first four minutes, there was matter. After billions of years, there were stars and planets, and the Earth was formed. The water above the sky separated from the water below the sky, which brought forth all manner of creeping things. Over millions of years they were shaped by God's invisible hand, Natural Selection, into great monsters of land and sea. The Earth was filled with violence, and God sent an asteroid, Katy Boundary, to destroy it."

I am such a geek.

Mum called today, from North Bay. She and Guthrie both live. I am, apparently, the neice that likes things in grey and black, opposed to the obese niece who likes bright colours. My step-grandmother has given me a jar of strawberry jam and a teacup. My Aunt Chris and Uncle Bill sat directly behind Mum and Guthrie at Stratford in the Avon Theatre (I think). Many many many seats. I forget how many. But many. Those are big odds. My family is weird and Keegan won't wear my mortarboard.

I miss Mum.

And I'm hungry.

Pizza - not filling. Especially when it's all you eat all day.

There are moths trying to break into my room. Ah, the seductieness of a desk lamp. If everyone was as sexy as a desk lamp, we'd be getting laid left and right.

I wrote. I hate writing. It leaves me physicall and emotionally drained and, at the moment, feeling like I'm going to puke. I am such a masochist.

Manga Source has some summaries and scans from fairly recent issues of Shounen Jump.

Good God, Hikaru's grown up to be positively drool-worthy. And so serious and broody . . .

I am -so- going to beat Jinxer about the head until we can come to some kind of deal by which I get the manga.

Bwahaha. New retina burning layout.

It's bell's fault, for she told me the other day about anime-Waya laying the smackdown on some guys for insulting Isumi, or some such. I can see why they get slashed together so often.

The world needs more Waya.

Will probably fix some things later. Tired now. Brood time.
