Working on getting back to essay writing but I'm not quite there yet, same on finishing up old fanfiction (my daughter likes to chew me about that and she should, leaving a story unfinished for two years is bad form). I've done some work (hand written) on my novels but confess that all of June was a complete wipe out for me. Finishing fanfic will be good practice for other none fannish writing projects.

Sailor Moon has new animation coming out in 2013. I'm interested. I'd like to see how it goes and if it will be the beginning of a wave of updated animes from the 90's. Now that would peek my interest quite a bit more if it were to happen. Right at the moment I'm watching a few of my favorite animes because I do things by moods and this was the right mood for me.

I can't remember the last time I played a video game. As [personal profile] tsubaki_ny says, phases. I feel badly though. I have games. Games I really, really wanted, even if I did wait to buy them used and depreciated. And then...nothing. Phases, indeed.

I have a ton of books to read. A lot of which I bought on clearance and then promptly used as a decoration instead of reading. Says a lot about the last five years of my life that I haven't been reading or playing video games. Phases are one thing, depressed is another, huh?

I have baked brownies. I have dinner cooking in the crockpot. I am staring at the laundry and will hopefully convince myself to fold it. Perhaps. Maybe. It's possible.

I have found and loved on my Neo by Alphasmart. I have a slightly older model than the one she reviews but I can attest to how much I love it as a writing tool.

I'm doing all right. Peddling Oranges as it were, enjoying the small things. Right now I'm enjoying the second cup of a mint and green tea blend. My husband found it at Big Lots, a box of hundred for 4.50, organic with unbleached bags, and delicious. My husband doesn't drink tea and even he commented that they smell fantastic.

Not doing a lot of deep, meaningful thinking about life today. Just enjoying the day, enjoying that physically I am having a good day, and trying to decide between writing and reading.

Much love.

Anime: FAKE

FAKE, by Sanami Matoh, is a Boy Love manga. The boys though are actually full grown men who are cops, so consider it heads up that this has a homosexual theme. There is one OVA from the series. The art for the manga and anime are common for that time. The author was doing a new series for FAKE, with a new art format, very modern but unfortunately it seems to be on hiatus. (I have a very sad for this as it makes me very unhappy.) I own the original mangas and the OVA. (And the VHS tape because it's that old at the time I bought it there wasn't a DVD out.)

It is my all time favorite anime/manga. Kind of like comfort food I guess. It may not be the most ground breaking or the fanciest but sure is comforting to snuggle up with the mangas on my couch with a good cup of tea. I'm posting this for amethyst_hunter(LJ) because I like to share and I hope it makes her happy.

Wikipedia entry for FAKE in case people would like information.

A very nice person posted the entire OVA to YouTube. I've made it a playlist. Please watch and enjoy. Warnings: Dee kisses Ryo.(<-----They are lovely together. Sadly the OVA tends to make Ryo look a bit soft and uke, the manga is more equal, Ryo's a badass sniper. Dee is a badass brawler. They look lovely in the mangas as well.) Minor cursing, some violence, murder mystery.
