I read in the papers that Gemini people will make it tonight

So, Severus the MacBook officially gave up the ghost last week. I'd managed to coax the keyboard into working again, though the DVD burner was still stuck, but Thursday the last bottom row of my keyboard died on me again. And it's kind of hard to type without the m, z, x, c and comma keys. :/ So yesterday [info]ze_dragon and I hiked up to the Apple store in Cambridge to get her power adapter replaced and my laptop packed back off to Apple. Which means for the next 5-7 days I'm back down to the ickle iBook and let me tell you....it is so much slower. And smaller. And heavier. And bulkier. And the shift key only works half the time.

*cries for Severus*

Best part of taking him in though? I have this OgN picture of Ayase chained to Kanou as my background on my desktop, and the dude at the Apple store who was tattooed up both arms and had a lip ring looks at it and says "Awesome pic. What's it from?"

Dragon and I still aren't sure if he realized Ayase was a boy. :D

Of course Apple > Best Buy given the fact that Marik the iPod is still not back from the repair shop and the 2-3 weeks they told me it'd be has now hit two months. Not best pleased. Not best pleased at all.

In between writing and going to chats and cleaning my apartment the past couple of days because OH MY GOD I HAVE COMPANY COMING NEXT WEEKEND, I've been indulging in anime. I inhaled the fourth English subbed OVA for Okane ga Nai--and WHOA THE FIC IDEAS--and then [info]ze_dragon introduced to me another anime that (according to her) she hand-picked to hit all the cracktastic things I tend to love.

So now, of course, I'm addicted as hell to Kyo Kara Maoh!, and I hate Dragon, I really do. I may have actually ordered the entire first season DVDs because the company who dubs them has stopped production, and I may be up to episode 21 out of 78 on the Veoh fansubs.

Really, how could I resist? *coughs and points to icon* It combines high fantasy with total CRACK with a yaoi couple who get unintentionally engaged in the second episode because one of them gets pissed off and slaps the other and that's how nobility gets engaged in this world and then they go on to adopt a daughter together, and the main character was born in Boston, is addicted to baseball and loves the Red Sox. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, PEOPLE. )

Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste

Dear fandom. With character information like this from the Okane ga Nai special scanlated by Forever-More why is there not scads of Okane ga Nai fic? WHY OH WHY?

The one-on-one talk with Kanou )

The one-on-one talk with Ayase )

I MEAN SERIOUSLY. "To control both his body and soul"? "A fetish for....my dad"? YOU GUYS. I JUST. Dammit, I'm going to have to write fic. IT IS COMING I CAN FEEL IT. This anime/manga has sucked my soul.

Jeez. I'm going to download some more OgN manga...

Also you should all know that I am in the middle of a serious mashup fixation which means that you will, yes, be getting a mashup music post soon...

slashing not for the weak minded

I didn't fall asleep until 3:30 again this morning, and I came >thisclose< to calling into work and staying at home reading manga sleeping, but then my sense of responsibility kicked in. :/ Dammit.

Okane ga Nai update: I've devoured the first thee OVAs and the first chapter of the manga. Imagine my utter devastation when I found the fourth and final OVA...only to realize it was subbed in Chinese. As I comprehend neither Chinese nor Japanese, I'm forced to twitchily and impatiently wait until the English sub is out. You guys? I think I have a minor obsession. I also have three new icons. *looks shifty* Word to the wise? Never, ever, ever say you will never be interested in something fannishly because there will come a day when you will be dragged kicking and screaming into that fannish arena and then you'll have to suck it up and admit to your baby sister that, despite all the years you spent mocking her, she might have, possibly, for once in her life....been right.

The horror. No, seriously.

HP update: Okay, so you know how sometimes you read something and it just totally blows you away? I read one of those fics during lunch: Being Snape, which is a Snape/Harry written for [info]regan_v for Smutmas. Perfect characterizations, perfect interactions, perfect, perfect, perfect ending. I'm at work so I can't link you directly to the fic (I googledoc'd it this morning so I could read it) but I can point you towards the rec on [info]regan_v's journal.

[info]mctabby has a new batch of Summary Executions up! YAY. And then I saw this:

HPSSDM slashing not for the weak minded \O/ DAMN SKIPPY. *waves Snarco flag* It screamed for iconning. So...

Also, it still amuses me that Greatestjournal is sending people to Insanejournal. *snicker* I really need to start posting over here more often... *comes to do so*

Now I have to go back to work... /o\
