anime - xholic - hands clasped - wee!

200+ userpics, done!

[001] Finally filled ALL my 202 userpic slots, WOOT! Atone point I started doubting it would ever happen but yaaaaay!

[002] Found an artist at DevART who does amazing stuff - molybdenumgp03's scene, Dragon in the Park had me just staaaaring at the backdrop of the city and the lights and colors of the park. Then there's Secret Town where all the detail with the little blocks of color just made me go wow.

[003] Wanted to read a particular old set of slash stories off of Shousetsu Bang*Bang, and finally found them. The author, miko_no_da also did two Gundam Wing ficlets here and here - the characterization is awesome and just clicks.

[004] Virus-AC74 posted Fire Mage a while back, which is pretty much a gorgeous AU!Duo Maxwell and has me all <3 The fire at the end of the braid, the unique scythe!staff, just \o/

[005] I think my ratio of egg to water to flour got a bit off, since my okonomiyaki did not stay together so now I have a big bowl of bits - but they taste yummy anyway so who cares XD

Though I admit grated nagaimo (chinese yam) is a sticky white mess that looks a lot like a certain male bodily fluid >_>

Weekend randomness

[001] If you've been swept by Olympics!figure skating fever or are tempted with all the talk of Johnny Weir on the flist, a good intro would probably be these posts here and here by mosca. The first is an introduction to the sport and the fandom and the second includes a bit of commentary on the Olympics so far too. Definitely interesting reads IMO

[002] I thought I'd dropped Smallville for good quite some time ago but thanks to voldything's smallville picspam recaps, with absolutely fantastic one liners, I gave in and tried a few episodes from season nine. Observations are: I don't mind Clark with Lois as much as I did earlier on...and I love, love, LOVE the few scenes we've gotten with Chloe and Oliver <3 They are FABULOUS together :3 In future I'll probably end up waiting for an episode which features more of them together before checking out another ep.

On a side note though, don't know if I've ever shipped a couple where both characters are blond hahaha

[003] I got addicted to FiberOne chocolate and oat granola bars in Jan, and after asking my sis, switched to blanched almonds and chocolate this week. It's a ratio of one almond to two to three chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet, take your pick) and it's divine (and much cheaper, thank god!). And since its that time of the month, my chocolate craving gets satisfied too.

[004] Totally messed up my linkage in the last post so: MAH USERPICS XD

[005] Thanks to a picpam on possimpible, I'm tempted to give the show Misfits a try sometime - has anyone checked it out yet?

[006] Discovered lira_alicia 's lightning round @ help_haiti super late so wasn't sure if she'd be able to do a chibi!sketch - but not only did she do this awesome pic of Toph and Zuko but she also added coloring:

anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

Totally random but

...no matter how crappy a day starts out or ends, I love how I can always open up the flist and emails from y'all and have a smile on my face after a while.

Love you guys so damn much <3
