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, I'm predicting doom, how about you?

"So my advice to the entire planet: everyone lie low for a while . . . 'cuz they're really mad . . . and unfortunately, we're all out in the parking lot." - Streeters by Rick Mercer.

I can't not comment on this election, not after sitting through three hours of lectures a week for the past two months about democracy and North America, a good portion of which always seemed to end up at the quickly approaching election in the southern elephant.


I'm looking at a map reporting the current state of electoral votes in the American presidential election, and, while unlike some people, I'm not interested in staying awake until everything's reported, I have to predict that Kerry is knackered.

Looking at the map, Bush has given a pretty clean sweep of all the central states. He has Texas and Florida, of course, and Kerry has California, New York, and Pennsylvania. He might still pull out ahead, but I think he'd have to take Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan . . . well, pretty much everything that's left. He'd have to take Ohio, too, but since I believe Ohio just ruled against gay marriages it seems like the majority will be inclined to go with Bush' platform . . .

Admittedly, I'm looking at reports on CNN and I'm not sure how accurate they are, since they have Kerry in at 195 seats in the electoral college, while assorted news programs had him in at 207 or so . . .

Apparently Bush got Alaska. I find this vaguely depressing.

It's so strange to find so much interest focussed on the election in a foreign country. I know Noel was surprised when I told her how much coverage it was getting up here. Do Americans not, as a rule, realize that they are the only remaining superpower in the world, and that their choice of president can result in huge ramifications all over the world? I wonder . . . I rather hope not, because if they do and they still elect a president on the grounds of whether or not he'll be entertaining (or not boring) if the New York Times article I read in class this morning was accurate, well, then I can understand why most Canadians don't like Americans. Who wants to know that a man controls the world's last superpower because his people thought the alternative would be "boring"?

God help the world,

"If people in real life are idiots? Tell them so, then piss my name on their doors. In cursive." - Collin Sri'vastra, Friendly Hostility.

The most eventful thing to happen this weekend was my acquisition of a new pair of boots (size 5 1/2). They give me blisters, but hopefully that'll change with time.

Strike that, the most eventful thing to happen was the acquisition of Shadow Hearts: Covenant.

It's so much shinier than the first game. The graphics are so much better, the battle system's improved, inventory and equipment, the character designs, the voices . . . it's incredible. Admittedly it's still outshone by Square-Enix games put out a couple years ago, but Shadow Hearts is like the little RPG that could, and it does well for not being as big-name as other series.

Of course, what should be a shiny, inspiring RPG of joy is currently being marred by the presence of . . . a character.

Karin Koenig.

A busty pinky-red haired Lieutenant of the German army during the first World War.

. . . Which, really, should say it all, but she has a -sword- and I had hope that she wouldn't make me want to punch her in the face . . .

But when she deals the final blow in battle she makes comments about getting her -clothing- dirty and one of the first thing she does after she becomes a fugitive from the law is get rid of her uniform in favour of a short skirt and clingy pink top.

Midway, baby, I love you, but how can you hurt me like this? How? After making me endure, like, an hour of gameplay without Yuri in my party.

On the bright side, now I have Yuri, as well as a large white wolf, and a creepy old pedophile of a puppet master, who's apparently the uncle of Alice Elliot. There's also been encounters with a too-sleek exorcist/cardinal from the Vatican who looks like Rufus Shinra, and a really gay shop-keeper and his really gay tailor brother who makes dresses for the pedophilic puppet master's little doll if you give him gay porn . . .

Oh, and Yuri rocks even more than he did previously, despite, you know, the Alice thing.

So in love with crazy WWI hijinks,
Almighty Ingrid, Signing Off
