- Tag: t: homestuck - This blog is currently pretty much only about Homestuck and my brain problems. And maybe Homestuck is a hallucination I'm having! And this is just, like, some folie à deux shit when people comment on my posts about it as if they're familiar with the subject matter. So, it could be it's just a blog about my brain problems.

- Tag: Kazuya Minekura's blog - Kazuya Minekura, the artist of the amazing Gensoumaden Saiyuki, was diagnosed with some pretty serious health issues a while back. She's been writing some very funny, angry, honest blog entries about her situation.

I've translated a number of these posts, but have fallen ridiculously behind; I encourage anyone else who'd like to pick up where I left off to do so.

- Post: The Very Small Problem - In the fall of 2010, I was diagnosed with a small tumor in my right frontal lobe. I was able to have it successfully removed in March of 2011, before it could cause any permanent brain damage. If it weren't for the existence of state high risk pools, a provision of 2010's Affordable Care Act - which some lawmakers are presently trying to repeal - it's very likely that I still wouldn't even know the tumor was there.

This post was written specifically to make American Republicans feel like jerks. I use my power for good, people.

- Tag: manga tropes - The Encyclopedia of Manga Tropes. Girl Power Corrupts may well be how you found this blog!

- Tag: a: kubo tite - In which I roundly scold Kubo Tite, artist of Bleach! Bleach vs Women and Bleach and power fantasies may well be how you found this blog! (Both of those posts contain spoilers up to chapter 395.)

- Post: TODAY I AM A DARKOVER BOOK may well be how you found this blog!

- Post: Anne Bishop does not CARE what you think and Heir to the Shadows may well etc.

- Tag: manga - I just talk about manga a lot in general.

- Tag: books - I also talk about sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal romance novels a lot!

- Tag: i teach english - In 2009, I spent seven months teaching English to Japanese kids in Shibata, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

- Tag: i study japanese - And in 2007-2008, I spent a year studying Japanese at the Yamasa Institute in Okazaki, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

Getting ready to close my checking account because their databases are a scary mess - the dates and balance numbers that show up when customer service looks up my account do not match up to my transaction record on the website, and neither matches up to the notices in the emails they send me.

They did say they were going to refund me the nonsense overdraft fee they charged me, which was what I originally called about, but the deeply unhappy person I spoke to's manager apparently instructed them to scold me for "misreading" the website. Yeah, I don't trust you people.

I used to be one of those people who used their dubious high-school French skills to do second-gen English manga translations. You can recognize us because sometimes the word "hazard" shows up in weird places.

YUKIMURA: But what a hazard to meet you here! KYO: Is it really 'a hazard'?

Because come on, we don’t fucking know what “hasard” means! We already had to learn "chance" and "destin," what are we gonna do with a third word. God.

Don't even talk to me about "sort."

I circled a pixel in a Homestuck panel and posted it on Tumblr last night, and it's going to outstrip everything else I've ever posted there in terms of notes. I can feel this coming.

It's gotten like a hundred more notes since I started writing this.

I hope the tea lies post comes back to life.

I'm lying in bed, and the cat is lying over my shoulder with his paw on my chest and his cheek against mine, as if he is reading Tumblr reactions to the Homestuck update along with me. His whiskers keep getting in my nose.

I can no longer communicate in any language other than Homestuck. Regressing closer to Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff every day.

ThePirateBay is down! I noticed this because I download the updates to the Dwarf Fortress Starter Pack from there, because the server the guy hosts it on is cruddy. I've been doing ThePirateBay wrong.

The joke in those tags was that characters in Valdemar books really do die and become horses. Mercedes Lackey genuinely thought that this idea was really cool and that it belonged in her books.

Characters in Bleach die and go to Yami no Matsuei, and characters in Yami no Matsuei die and go to Bleach.

Characters who die in both consecutively go to Dragon Ball - aka, hell - a realm where there is no true death, and therefore, no hope of escape.

#'but where do characters who die in homestuck go preacher' #'they become horses in mercedes lackey books'

Mom has forbidden him from bringing home any more animals, so he's trying to get me to adopt some for him to play with. Earlier today, I for probably the dozenth time explained to him that I think Dubiety the Cat needs to be a lone cat, given that he is terrified of Tragedy the Cat - who is seventeen years old, half his weight, badly arthritic, deaf, and going blind.

So he comes over to the house this evening, sits there playing with Dubiety for a while, and then asks me hopefully, "do you think he'd like a friend?"

I gave him the cookies I fucked up. I don't think he noticed they tasted funny.

Why does this cat need to be right next to me 100% of the time. Does he think bad guys are going to get him if he goes into the other room. Does he think bad guys are going to get me. What is either of us even going to do about bad guys, whine at them.

I am making a very poor showing in the Getting Up And Going To The Kitchen To Actually Eat Something Olympic event.

I bought a box of wine and drank a glass like an hour ago, and now I am basically useless and not to be trusted to stand up and move around and stuff. Someone needs to do tonight's baking and cleaning for me, I'm out of bread and the rice cooker pot is dirty.

What the hell is this game's preoccupation with killing off cute little animals.

Don't pick up the quest "The Pet of Your Dreams" in Draumheim. It's almost worse than when they gratuitously offed Tasuil the Corgi Adventurer. I did not need to see that shit.

Last night I dreamed that Caliborn took over all possible universes and turned them into an anime high school. The kind with the sexy student council with the self-important machinations and dark secrets that fuck shit up for everyone else. He and the Felt were the student council.

This is probably how Homestuck will actually end.

I need to drive to Louisville today but only slept about four hours last night. I'm sitting here trying to decide whether to try and take a nap or just get started. The sleep-deprivation thing also makes it hard to make decisions.

I dreamed I was arguing with someone on Tumblr in-character as the guy from The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, which is the worst choice anyone could ever make.

Unsurprising effects:

* Body hair growing faster.

* Periods less predictable.

Surprising effects:

* Periods less painful + less ovarian-cyst-related discomfort.

* Acne better most of the time...

* ...but much, much worse after consuming dairy.

I had a terrible, terrible breakout, and after trying several other things, I took a few days off dairy as a test. My skin's almost clear again.

I WAS HOPING THAT THIS WOULD NOT WORK. I DON'T WANT TO STOP EATING YOGURT AND CHEESE. I ALSO DON'T WANT TO GO TO A GYNECOLOGIST FOR A NEW PRESCRIPTION. BECAUSE BASICALLY ANY GYNECOLOGIST TO WHOM I HONESTLY DESCRIBED MY CURRENT PROBLEMS WOULD INSIST THAT I GET A VAGINAL ULTRASOUND, AND THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE A GOOD IDEA BUT I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THOSE OH GOD
