Exciting Events… or not.

So I got hit by a car today while riding my bike. My computer (I was carrying my more durable computer) and manga are ok! (priorities in the wrong place? no.) I’m perfectly fine actually, it was a mix of rain, me not being especially smart and the fact that the car didn’t use her blinkers (they never do that anyway) – so I tried to stop and then *instinctively* (or by luck) slid to the ground with my bike facing the car and I got bumped. My bag got a bit muddy and my knee got drenched, but it was a bit off the ground so I didn’t even get a scrape. Lucky me – so I bounced back up, said I was perfectly fine and dashed off (I was late after all).

So I’m almost done reading book three of Mushishi, I suppose I’ll do reviews on the first two soon – I’ve read the first two chapters of Mushishi as well, (which are awesome! – and I understand more a few things I missed in the anime) : I dunno if I’d be any good at any sort of thing like reviewing but I think it could be fun. I think I want to translate the Kara no Kyoukai ED 2 "sprinter" (though it looked like gg in subs did quite a good enough job for me so I don’t suppose I have to :x) because I love it – so that might be coming up next, and then a few of the lucky star character album songs.

Now for linguistics and phonology – I’m learning how to pronounce other languages properly now :D

Amino Shiki CM and reviews.

Ah, hiatuses are awful aren’t they? – When work piles on it’s easy to stop and hard to start back up again, so right after getting finished with my song queue I ran right into a work load -> However do not fret my crickets (for does anyone else but me view this?) for there will be more songs translated, and most probably commentary over things that I’ve been reading, namely Musashi, which is translated, but given that it’s ~1000 pages translated, it would be nigh impossible at my current level to read it given an number of many long years, even if I had no other task before me. I’m also making my way through the volumes of lucky star and they are pretty funny – for instance, think of Konata: she was talking about the realistic views on her career survey thing – "I have specialty skills." "What kind of skills?" "Well I can do all the things the athletes in the Amino Shiki commercials do." O.O: google this: "アミノ式CM" – There are tons of other things I’m supposed to be reading so I’ll give some insight when I can make it far enough to do so.

Kagami is my favorite.
