Default April 2 (5M^_^)

Now then, back to business. For today's update we have --

Wait! I've got it! Anime!

That's what all the cool sites are into now! Who needs sci-fi? There's a whole new genre just waiting for me to attack it! My hitcounts will soar! My frustrations will be crushed by giant robots! I'll never have to hear the name "Joss Whedon" again!

From now on, this site is Five-Minute Anime! New front page! New Statement of Purpose! New list: The Top 10 Signs That You Wish Your Girlfriend Were an Anime Character! And exclamation points for all!

^_^

Please tell me this is a late April Fools Joke. I need you to finish your Voyager fivers.

*looks at the disclaimer*

If I weren't lazy, I'd translate that. As it is, I get a vague sense of wrongness looking at it, but I can't brain Japanese right now.

I can't tell you how glad I am that you added the ^__^ to the About page, but didn't get rid of the zombie joke from last year.

"5M^_^'s Statement of BRAINS." I lol'd.

ARRRRGH.

You know the routine. I hit a wall made up partly of RL obligations (lots of them) and partly of perfectionism. I was so determined not to screw this one up, but here we are a month later. I don't feel guilty about it, per my policy of not doing that anymore, but it's extremely frustrating.

Trouble is, I can't abandon this event. And not just because the last two were false starts. No, I'm going somewhere with this one, and the point won't become clear until about halfway through. So I'm just gonna have to ask you to bear with me.

If I can, I'll start again on Monday. (Can't do earlier -- I'm moving my stuff from one room of the house to another this weekend.) But here's the plan: I won't start up again until I have as much of the event "in hand" as possible. That way I can move through it quickly and we can all get back to our lives.

Indeed I do. You'd think I'd learn to avoid that by now, but . . .

I tried to imagine where you could take anime, and for some reason the only thing that popped into my mind for a while was "blinking text".

ARRGH. You can't see it, but there is smoke blasting out of my ears right now. Home situation is beyond belief. Please wish me luck resolving this.

Duly wished.

I can pray, too, if you're to that point. Little known talent of mine.
