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.


Poisonous, venemous, hate-filled bile

"Silence, fools! The plan must go into effect!"
"You mean the one where we leave fighter here locked in a stalemate until his arms fall off? Or the one where we go back to town and kill red mage and thief in their sleep?" - Red Mage and Black Mage, 8-bit Theater.

I had a midterm this morning that I almost certainly did astonishingly bad on, because I'm an idiot and that will never change. I spent the weekend working on my Shakespeare paper (that I edited this afternoon, and it continues to be the worst paper I've ever written, and I'll be lucky to pull at 70%) and Geoff invaded the night before last (he bought me supper and it was nice to have human contact, but the night was a bust) and . . .

I've been hit by an incredible wave of depression. Of hating myself, hating everyone, hating everything. It's great.

Did you know the majority of small independent shoe stores either do not have hiking boots or, if they do, do not have them in sufficiently small sizes to accomodate, for instance, me?

I suspect a conspiracy.

I didn't find this out until I walked to Outter Limits in the slush and my leaky boots and stalked into every shoe-likely store down Broadway. I wasted an hour and a half on a quest that proved futile, and came home with wet socks and no comfort food to be found because I used most of the last cookies I baked as convocation cookies.

And, as is usual I'm feeling very alone and very lost and very inclined to light people on fire with my mind, but I have no idea if it's working because people aren't where I can see the results of lack thereof of my intense hatred, because I'm a nasty, evil person (this is a well documented fact).

I felt like this yesterday, and it was generally suggested by the unfortunates who had the misfortune to come into contact with me that I was just in a bad mood because of the midterm. As this feeling is still lingering after the completion of the midterm, I think we're just back to the bit where I'm a horrible and evil person.

The only good things that happened today? A high consumption of first season Scrubs episodes that Jinxer's been getting for me and unlocking Eternal mode 3 in Katamari Damacy.

If those are the only good things you can single out of your day after being awake since 7am you know you're in trouble.

Fuck it all,

"Don't worry. I'll have this sign added to the 'to kill' list." - Collin Sri'vastra, Friendly Hostility.

You know, being Canadian, even a Canadian paying attention to the current political situation in America, I've been avoiding talking about the American election aside from voicing my opinion on the mixing of fandom and politics.

But lately, as the American election approaches, I've been seeing a lot of people saying "Screw you, you all suck, and I'm not voting for anyone because you're all horrible and the system's corrupt". Which is fine. A certain group of activists tried this back in the sixties. The ideas behind it are nice, idealistic. Keep your hands clean out of the dirty dirty politics and send a message.

But, realistically, not-voting, unless you manage to have sway over a large majority and bring them to your side, will accomplish nothing. Yes, your system is flawed, deeply so, but all systems are. The dual system in America isn't good, but neither is the decentralized multi-party system in Canada. They're both equally flawed, just in different ways.

This applies to all elections, I think. Not voting so you can feel morally good about yourself because "all politicians are evil" and whoever get's elected, -you- had nothing to do with it. But it's particularly dangerous in the current election in America because of how close things appear to be. Kerry's in trouble as more and more people choose to avoid voting entirely because the people choosing not to vote are the people who would be more inclined to vote for him than Bush. Kerry still has a good chance, support for him seems to be strong, but if Bush gets re-elected . . . well, I hope the non-voters can still feel good about themselves if that happens.

Clearly a force of pure evil,

"Strip-Risk! is a lot less fulfilling than I would've thought." - Collin Sri'vastra, Friendly Hostility.

Because I'm weak, weak, weak, and a masochist on top of that, I downloaded the last episode of Smallville.


Yeah, the episode with the character calling himself Bart Allen.

Smallville is the worst thing I've seen in recent memory that wasn't a) a reality show and b) wasn't turned off within five minutes. Seriously. It's so bad. Why is it still on the air? The writing's awful, and the lead actor can't fucking act to save his life. He projects "brain dead space alien" whenever he's on screen.

On the other hand, the kid playing the not!Bart Allen was cute. I mean, he wasn't Bart. He was snotty and angry and a criminal street kid and he flirted. Cutely. With girls. He used flowers. There were references to proper Bart canon ("I'm from the future") and to all the people who are actually Flash (Barry Allen, Wally West, and Jay Garrick) unlike Bart who . . . isn't Flash, unless something's happened that Meia and Noel haven't told me. And the kid was charming. He stole Pa Kent's wallet and then got cookies from him. Or possible a sandwich. But I prefer saying cookies. It was incredibly cute, in a pseudo-Bart kind of way. I liked the not!Bart. I would cheerfully watch an entire show about the not!Bart doing whatever the hell he wanted to do. Forming a wannabe Justice League, robbing people, anything. As long as, you know, Clark Kent the brain dead alien is kept far, far away from it all.

Other things have happened recently, but most of them involved cookies, Katamari Damacy, and cartoons.

Bruce Wayne waving a cane at those damn kids on his lawn is still one of the best things ever.

So easily amused,
