Old news is probably old, but it was a fun story, nontheless. [08 Apr 2011|10:46pm]
So, fun story.

I rode the train to work this morning (like you do, every damn morning), and I saw a new advertisement for some new manga series. I thought it was weird because it's not often you see ads for manga in the train.

There's not really much to do on the train when you forget both your cell phone and your headphones at home, so I just kinda stared at it for a while, wondering why the art style looked so familiar, and what the hell farm animals had to do with Silver Spoons and why those two boys looked so angry and -


wait, I KNOW this art style.

Is that...?

Holy cheez whiz, it IS.

Arakawa Hiromu is writing a new series! First chapter out this Sunday!

(I had to translate most of that at work because my kanji skills are failsauce but still. COOL, RITE.)

I originally posted this on facebook for a select group of people, but then I remembered more of my fanny friends are on here. Go Devil Dante's latest! Got some Hetalia, FMA, Bleach, Soul Eater, Bebop, Harry Potter, LOTR, Naruto, Black Jack, Fruits Basket, Avatar, Death Note, Kuroshitsuji, Samurai Champloo, and a couple more that I can't remember off the top of my head.

ETA: I totally want an icon of the Snape dance.

My tablet pen broke today. I have discovered that these things break like it's their job - I've spent about $90 over the last few years just replacing them.


Today, I decided to google around, see if anyone else had the same problem - drop a wacom pen, it stops working. Boo hiss. As it turns out, there is a simple, low cost way of solving this problem:


I love you, google. I love you, internet. Stay awesome.

Fixing a Wacom Pen - I wish I had known that!

Things I have learned about procrastinating paper writing in college [08 Dec 2008|03:18am]
1) ALWAYS KNOW EXACTLY WHEN THE PAPER IS DUE. Misunderstandings lead to pain, stress, and a night full of very unhealthy energy drinks. (No, I did not accidentally set the date wrong on my laptop and think it was two days earlier than it actually was for the entire weekend, wtf are you talking about).

2) Know your writing speed. If you know you average 500 words an hour and have a 2000 word paper to write, make sure you give yourself at least four hours to write the paper. Five if you have to do the research as well.

3) When doing the research and must use at least one book reference, make sure to check the book out of the library at least a week in advance. This gives you the satisfaction of saying "hey, I've started... sorta." to an annoying yet well meaning parent or friend.

4) By the same token, come up with a topic at the very least a week in advance, if not a thesis. Good prep, especially when you have to get the book out anyway.

5) When preparing to write the essay, lay it out mentally. Intros and conclusions can usually account for 150 to 300 words. So, if you have a 1,500 to 2,000 word paper, your layout may look something like this:


Intro - 200 words

Topic 1 - 450 words

Topic 2 - 450 words

Topic 3 - 450 words

Conclusion - 200 words

Total: 1,750

Note that the total goal is neither the bare minimum, nor does it exceed the maximum. This gives the allusion of sustained effort, but does not force you to work too hard.


7) If you haven't learned to not procrastinate at this point, you're probably never going to, so all you people telling me the best way to go is to not procrastinate at all clearly do not know what an art! what a science! what a way of life! this is. That is all. :D

1. Put your iPod or iTunes (OR Windows Media Player) on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. See that title? WRITE IT DOWN!
4. Tag some peeps who might enjoy doing the memo as well as the person you got the memo from.

LOL CARD SEASON [09 Nov 2008|11:48am]
So here's the thing. I have an address book full of addresses, which means regardless of whether or not you want one, you're getting a card from me this year.


If your address has changed (I'm looking at you, loreamara >:E), PLEASE post so I can send your card to the proper address. I really hate getting these back. Stamps ain't cheap, you know!

If you have never received a card from me, or don't think I have your address and want me to stalk you send you one, post.

Also, this year, I am offering the option of an e-card. So if you're anal and don't want me to know where you live not that I can't figure it out anyway mua ha ha, just post your email address and I'll email it to you in a nice .png or .jpg or something for you to print at your leisure.

Comments are screened, of course!

Finally, to my schoolmates: your addresses are listed in campus mail, so I'll be sending one through the address listed on there. Get over it. :D

I'm starting early this year, so I'm hoping to be printing in full color! =O Special treat for everyone, yay!

Also, if you would like to send me a card, my address did change this year. If you make a card post, I'll put it there too, but for those of you who are too lazywow i've been using that a lot want to take advantage of the moment and update your address books, my addy this year is:

Kris Cutsail
322 Gilbert B
Newark, DE 19717
US of A, ya'll.

Get it. Got it? Good!

To my dearest wofl_iron, pretypixxiestix, binaryalchemist, and any of my other fantabulous pagan/wiccan friends, happy sabbat!

To everyone else, remember that it's cold outside, you halloweenies, so bundle up on the way to your parties >:E

That is all. Way too much skin on my way home tonight. Stupid sorostitutes.

Edit: To wofl_iron, have an extra special Sam Hane! :P

yay, meme. I never post anymore.

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!
