Ghost Crab Eats Oil (Photos from the Deepwater Horizon clean-up)

Inception soundtrack was a slowed down version of 'Non, je ne regrette rien' (YouTube) (Err... thought it was in the same key, didn't notice the extent of the similarity though. But just hearing it made me want to see the movie again.)

Most caffeinated US cities (Actually, aside from the subject, one of the stock photos made me pause and remember it from an English textbook I had to teach from.)

Saiyuki Gaiden anime site now up

Shibuya Station photographs

Photographs from the US, 1939 - 1943


I went out with dilettantka and blodeuedd today -- we originally were going to see fireworks, but since it was raining I tagged along with them while they went to purikura and ate parfait. We went to Milky Way in Ikebukuro and I ordered a chocolate parfait. When it came, IT WAS ON FIRE. I wouldn't have had to put any thought into choosing if I'd known.

(Also had this conversation:

Me: What hanzi do you think my character would use for his name? Traditional or simplified?
Her: Well, it depends on where he's from.
Me: ...He's from another planet.)

Anyway, as I've said before, doing things is always productive. As it happens, I finished typing up the rough draft of a fanfic. Now I just need to add some description.

I also made a hair appointment for tomorrow.

I just wanted to thank you for all the amazing links you've been sharing recently. I've really been enjoying them. :3

Thanks... Although they're the only way I can justify a daily 'productivity report'! :-)

Actually, yeah, ditto on the above comment. You always have the best links.

Obviously you need to use the most bizarre kanji you can find, with an alternative reading. like 月 "ライト" but like, 10 bajillion times weirder :D cuz aliens are weeeeeeeeeeeeeird.

Thanks... Probably a sign I mess around on the Internet too much. :-)

Well, I know the hanzi for his name, but I didn't know what type. In fact, this will never come up in the novel, I just wanted to know. It's amazing how many websites are about Chinese, but none of them can give a straight overview. Not even Wiki does this.

Said character isn't actually an alien btw, just lived all his life on an off-world colony and has a romantic view of life back on Earth.
