Mikan’s Ears and Random Musings

Mini-croissants for brunch.

Interestingly, a lot of astronomy-related newsflashes begin with
“Astronomers are surprised by…”

Gou’s sibling just grows two ears to-day. Some of you will be tempted to call him a certain member of the canine family. I know it.

I told Gim about Mikan looking like a  *coughs*fox*coughs*. His respond?
“hmm… yeah, that’s perfect”
Now, what is that supposed to mean?!
robinwood duererI’m thinking about getting a tarot deck, which means that I have to wade my way through tomes/pdfs/docs/webpages on tarot reading again. The decks I have my eyes on are Robin Wood and Duerer, both follow Rider-Waite to some degree, the latter with tongue-in-cheek allegories.

What Be Your Nerd Type?

Your Result: Social Nerd

You’re interested in things such as politics, psychology, child care, and peace. I wouldn’t go so far as to call you a hippie, but some of you may be tree-huggers. You’re the type of people who are interested in bettering the world. You’re possible the least nerdy of them all; unless you participate in other activities that paled your nerdiness compared to your involvement in social activities. Whatever the case, we could still use more of you around. ^_^

Anime Nerd
Gamer/Computer Nerd

LOL. The text is completely off the mark! But the bar-things are pretty accurate, I guess.

Bear with Whiskers

Warning: Knitting yourself a sweater can cause backache and sprained wrists.


Because someone (most.. well, everyone) kept saying that I looked like a bear, or at least had a bear father, Som decided to give me a totally-uncalled-for facelift.

Now I look like a bear with whiskers!


Today update: I’m making a friend, literally.

Picture taken at our reunion. One big happy family.
erm… perhaps I do have a bear adopted dad after all.

Anime on the Radar


Baccano! (trailer and promo on Animesuki)

  • Alchemy – checked
  • Steam locomotive – checked
  • Mafia – checked
  • Muted colour palette – checked
  • Helpless-looking lad running for his life – checked

Can’t wait for the first episode.

Zombie-Loan, subbed by Shinsen Subs (first two episodes on AS)

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, subbed by A.F.K. (first episode on AS). Love the nod to Kafka.

I promised myself not to buy any more craft tools, gadgets, and/or raw materials – just-in-case – until I manage to finish the WIP projects first. The WIP basket has been filling quickly and is now brimming with Gou’s Weasley jumper, Onigiri, granny squares, Little Theodore (who has been missing his eyes and ears since March), and various other unidentified scraps. So cabling without a cable needle is just the perfect skill to pick up right now.

Hmm… should I start that lovely Celtic sweater?
