Updates for the Updateless

So, um, I know that you guys are probably wondering what the dickens is going on. But I'm still around. I also still don't have a desk, which is proving to be more of a challenge than I thought. Pluys I'm working. Hmm, surprise, suprise. I'm an assistant park ranger. Which means that I do all the menial jobs that the real park rangers don't want to do. Like clean toilets, and change garbage bags, and walk trails looking for litter. I do get a truck which is a pretty good deal. Obviously, I'm a seasonal, and I only work there for three months, which, while not too bad, is proving to be a challenge in in of itself. I realize with this experience that I have to be doing something like as a profession, or I'll go completely crazy. If I had to do what I'm doing now for the rest of my life... Oh there is no doubt in my mind that I'd kill myself and take everybody else with my. Luckily, this is not permanent so Ranger Mark and Larry can live for another day. Anyway, I'm starting to hate nature and people, and especially stupid people. But on the upside I'm gaining a new respect for fishing and camping. I can take or leave hiking, but I do enjoy canoeing. So, this is all (kinda) working out. Anyway, I'll just leave you with the (one of many) motto for the park where I work 'It Ain't Going to the Moon!'. It all just kind of explains itself, huh?

Turning Japanese

I'm really not, I just like that song. And please don't tell me it's about masturbation, because you and I both know that it's not. Anyway, I'm just downloading some anime that I watched at Animazement, and som I didn't, and telling you what I think of some new one's and old ones. Anime that is...

Bleach -- I think I've already mentioned this one, but it's great and I like it. Check it out if you can.

Keroro Gunso -- This is the story of a frog that came from outer space to take over the world. Unfortunately he was abandoned by his army and taken captive by a Japanese family. Oh well. This one had me rolling even at 6 in the morning, and I did fall asleep, but it was mostly because I was exhausted.

Speed Grapher -- It's pronounced like instead of photographer, you put the word speed in the front. I like it, it's a tad violent, but being able to blow up stuff by just taking it's picture? Priceless.

Trinity Blood -- Now I haven't seen it yet, but Imani was pretty PO'd that she didn't get her pick of the most attractive men in the series. So, I'm just thinking that they're pretty attractive. And that's more than enough to make me watch a series.

There are plenty more, but I'm kind of tired from all this writing. So, I'll catch you up on the rest of this stuff later. Until then, find all of these wonderful series, and watch them. Watch them all!

If it weren't for the gutter, my brain would be homeless!

You can't really depend on me people. Until I get a new desk, I'm bound to be unreliable on the posting front. I'm only doing this one because I had a late night burst of evergy. Which leads me to the question of why I can't get these during a logical time, like, I don't know, DAYLIGHT?!?!? So, anyway, I just found out from one of my friends that I have an accent. KaWhat!?!? Me? I always figured I had the least accent you were going to find. And un-accent, if you will. I mean, that's only for Americans, but still. Not the unaccent, but if I go anywhere else and speak English I'll have an accent (or whatever language, but currently English is the only one I know). But it never occured to me that I'd have an accent to other Americans. So then, my friend Tigg is like, 'When did you all get accents?' That kind of stopped me in my tracks. I figured I didn't have a country accent, though I was born and bred in the South, or an East coast accent, which really isn't anything, just not crazy like those wacko Californians. But I figured that you can get an accent from pretty much anything. My mom parents were from 'the Islands', so I probably got a little passed down from her, and my dad is from New York and every once in a while he'll stress a word, like 'Yoik', instead of York, and that kind of sticks with you. Add to that the whole Southern thing, and I guess that when you get is something different then what Tigg probably hears. Everybody I know has got some weird set of circumstances defining the way that they speak. Add to that the fact that Tigg hasn't been 'down South' in about 44.4 billion years, and you can see the problem. Well, not a problem per se, but the interesting set of situations. Anyway, that's just one facet of an interesting week, that I will add to. Think about it, I've got to tell youse guys about Animazement (though I didn't even try to take pictures), my new job (and a certain walk in the woods), and why my arm was tired (No, not for that reason, you perv!).
