I just found out Kawakami Tomoko died a couple of days ago! ;_; She was a very prolific seiyuu known for voicing numerous famous characters I grew up with and loved, like Utena and Hikaru. What a tragedy, she was only 41 and succumbed to ovarian cancer after being hospitalized for the past two years. Damn you female reproductive system!! Don't you cause us women enough pain as it is? May she rest in peace; she will be terribly missed by the entire anime-loving world.

Anyone watching Shion no Ou? It's like Hikaru no Go with a girl instead of a boy, shougi instead of go, and a murder mystery instead of a ghost. It's awesome. XD

*sniffle* No more Ouran or Higurashi! =( The only series left I'm still keeping up with is Nana. I really, really loved Ouran; does the manga continue past where the anime left off? I'll have to read it if so. Higurashi confused me a lot, but I still enjoyed it for its incredible weirdness.

In other news...I have no other news. I go to work, get covered in dirt, come home incredibly tired, watch tv, go to bed. I had to get new boots yesterday because the zipper on mine kept popping open, grr. So I went back to ones that have laces, which I didn't want anymore because the laces break all the time. I guess broken laces are easier to replace than fixing broken zippers, though. Bah.

Oh wait, Josh and I did go to a Tom Petty concert on Saturday. The show was good, but I didn't care much for the venue, an outdoor theater at the UC Berkeley campus. Pot smokers _everywhere_! Having to smell so much of it was giving me a headache. The lack of parking and bathrooms and sitting out on the lawn in the cold wasn't very agreeable, either, so it's a good thing the music was good. I thought I only knew two Tom Petty songs, but then I realized I actually knew more than that as he sang them, I had just forgotten about them. At least Josh thoroughly enjoyed everything since he's a big fan of his.

Should go to the Nor Cal Ren Faire sometime soon before it ends. It's still on for another week or two, right? Maybe this Sunday; I'm not working for a change because I switched shifts with someone else. I'll be working Friday the 13th instead. ;)

(Which, just so you know, doesn't bother me in the least; I was born on a Friday the 13th! ^^ I'm inclined to like them.)

Thanks for the well wishes everyone ^^ I definitely have a full blown cold...I've been pretty much lying in bed all day sneezing and blowing my nose and generally feeling icky. My voice is still almost nonexistant and now my nose is raw in addition to my throat :p I was supposed to go to the A's game with my brother today, but I knew there was no way I'd make it. Turns out they lost anyway, so I didn't miss anything good. Instead I just stayed here and caught up on Kaleido Star, and I finally am able to start watching Mirage of Blaze because I accidently found that Jet Audio can play ogm files.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] alliandra! *hugs* Hope it was great (since I think it's already tomorrow where you live)!

Eiji is hosting Tenipuri on the Radio this month! ^_^ This makes me very happy.

Video files of my ducks! For anyone who would like to see them doing stuff. The one where they quack is pretty funny...Ooishi has a normal duck quack, and Kikumaru still peeps like a baby for the most part...but when he does quack it's really loud and sounds like he's laughing! Watch it and see what I mean :)

in their pool when I had them at home
eating lettuce out of my hand, also at home
pecking my shoes at their new private island home
on the island
in the pond (Ooishi is quacking, Kikumaru is squeaking)
quacking and laughing (Ooishi is quacking, Kikumaru is "laughing")

Must find some Nyquil...this stupid runny nose won't let me sleep!

Okay, the puppy's name is officially Sequoia because we're sick of trying to come up with anything better. She's getting much better about sleeping quietly through the night, but she still yipes and whines horribly when she's awake during the day and no one is around to play with her. She also has even more toys now since any one toy only seems to keep her interested for a day or two.

I dropped my Tuesday night class, so now I'm down to only two night classes on Mondays and Thursdays. Yay! That class was SO lame; it was called Communication & Culture and most of the people in there were kids majoring in Communications. I had zero interest in it and it involved a lot of annoying reading, not to mention having to stay at school at night for yet another 3 hours in a row. Anyway, I've dropped it and instead I signed up for a class at the community college I'll be working at. The class? Japanese Animation *g* Three hours of watching anime every Monday; I think I can handle that... ^_~

Yesterday was bowling and I did quite well for me. For the last few weeks I've been sucking; my ball won't go where I want it to and I haven't been able to figure out why. It's like the way I bowled changed completely over the space of a week or two. Then last night my thumbnail broke off on my first practice ball, and suddenly I could bowl normally again! For three weeks I've been bowling like crap all because of one stupid nail. Well now I know I have to keep them cut short.

Tonight the fire alarm went off during my night class. I wonder if it was a prank or something, because the alarm went off in the same building on Monday night as well. That thing is freaking LOUD. At least it was kind of nice to get out of that boring class for a few minutes; I keep almost falling asleep in there. Then when I was walking to the parking structure, I saw something rustling under a bush. I figured it was a cat (there's an orange tabby I've seen a few times around campus) and stopped to look at it. Well what should scurry out from under the bush but a huge possom! In the middle of downtown San Jose! It ran over to a building and sniffed around, looking for a way in, then it crawled through this little opening near the bottom of the wall. Weird.
