Haha, yeah. I might still have one or two of those. I hardly use AB anymore now that we have a CR sub.

Well, that was quick. Did you ever play with IRC?

I see. That sounds pretty nice actually, teaching at a small liberal arts school. I'm sure you haven't thought that much about it yet, but is there a part of the US that sounds the most pleasant to live in? How do you like the "feel" of the east coast? Eugene isn't bad by any means, but I'd be sort of surprised if you wanted to move back there after being there for so many years.

It is indeed better than joblessness. We have our moments where personal issues overlap with the business, which isn't good, but overall it seems to be working pretty well. She isn't good with the whole "thinking logically" thing, so I'm filling in that missing element.

Tyler 2 works from home (doing 3D design for the speaker company his dad co-owns) so he didn't really have anything anchoring him in Eugene. Russ' decision was based mainly on the reality that he didn't know anyone else in Eugene and would likely have had to move into a single apartment. I doubt he wanted to continue working at Oregon Lox forever either. As of a couple weeks ago he landed himself a job in receiving at Uwajimaya, which so far seems like a major improvement. Seems happy there.

Hah, sure I can try sending you another invite. Not sure if that would cause conflict or not since the disabled account is tied to the same email. Did you try PM-ing the staff? Would be a shame to lose that ratio if it's possible to reactivate the account. I'll try sending one on your behalf first, then I'll send an invite if they are jerks.

Right on. Doctorate...you're really going the whole 9 yards aren't you. I forget, do you plan on teaching or getting involved with the church system? And where do you hope to land after finishing the program?

The work is pretty good. Flexible hours, good pay, and varied tasks. Keeps things from getting too repetitious. It isn't my passion by any means, but it's the best option I have atm, and mom needs the help. Most of it is marketing/outreach. I also manage inventory, put together orders, plan bakes, etc.

Big, expensive, bad traffic, but worth the move. Relocating (again) this weekend to a better rental nearby. The place we're in now is almost a carbon copy of the Willamette townhouse. It's right on a highway so it's loud and the interior is pretty poor quality. New place will be quieter, cheaper, and marginally better inside.

Looks like you moved yourself. Did you finish your program at the seminary? How's the fam?

Hey, Happy Birthday. Hope all is well over there.

Nice, what a nostalgic voice that would be. The tutorial for that game kicked my ass and I didn't get any further than that, lol. I should give it another try. How are you liking it?

i love your luck star review. Its so true but i think is you switch from something heaving or heartbreaking, lucky star is the place to go.
Please just don't take that shit seriously
You will just feel disappointment and just wanted so say for me lucky star's biggest flaw is the "heavenly" boring lucky channel.

There's not a ton to say, but the three of us went over for three weeks. No responsibilities this time; just traveled around and explored. You can check out the pictures I took on my G+ account if you like. You could also add Tyler and see some of his as well. I generally let him take the pictures since I had already been there before and he had a far better camera.

Some of the highlights were going to that village called Shirakawago, where we stayed in a really cozy inn run by a local family. It was the first time I'd been to a traditional inn and had the "set course" meals that come with it. There was a nice hot spring nearby too. We unfortunately (though somewhat fortunately) were there during an off-season, so while there weren't as many people there we were a bit early to see the leaves changing color, which is supposed to be quite spectacular up there.

In Osaka we went to an "owl cafe" which, as you'd expect, is a cafe with tons of owls in it. You pay the nominal fee of $10 for a drink and then get to hold and take pictures with the owls for an hour. It was quite a cool experience. Sometimes they'd lose balance on your arm and jump up onto your head, which was more funny than painful, but they have some very impressive talons. Take a look a the pics.

Otherwise we visited some of the places I had been before, including the Fushimi Inari shrine and Todaiji where the largest Buddha statue is housed. Nearby is the park where herds of domesticated deer roam around and they'll eat biscuits out of your hand. Then there was the Muslim guy who rented out the place we stayed at in Kyoto, who was a very nice guy but tried to convert us to Islam before we left the final day.

Now that I think about it, some of our most memorable experiences over there had to do with animals. We got some great shots of feeding a massive school of koi as well, which was quite hilarious. Just holding your hand over the water sends them into an air-sucking frenzy and once they're eating we were able to reach out and touch them.

We spent about 5 days at my host parents' house in Tokyo before going back home, which was great. I had a lot of opportunity to brush up on my moon rune, which came back to me far more readily than I'd anticipated. I was surprised and pleased by the fluidity with which I was able to chat with them this time around. I guess 4th year Japanese and the summer program I went to at Mills that year in Cali were worth something.

Being a guide was pretty fun, except for the time I forgot to return the key to the place we had rented in Tokyo and ended up missing the bus I'd booked to get us to Shirakawago. Ended up having to ask my host mother to help me book with another bus service and take two buses there, arriving almost 3 hours after the designated check-in time. That was a bit stressful, haha.

...and then we came back and I remembered how boring daily life is and how I had no money left after spending everything I'd saved up over the summer. Went through a period of "returnee depression" and still don't have a job yet. Borrowing money sucks. Anyway, it was a great trip and it was nice to see my host family again. Russ and Tyler had never been out of the country before, so I'm sure it was quite an experience for them as well.

Not a problem, I was busy with that summer work anyway. It may have only been a couple of movies, but it was nice we got to meet while you were here.

Yeah, I bought Skyrim on supersale too. Still haven't started it yet. It means saying goodbye to the world for a couple of weeks. Been playing Darksiders, where you play as Arthas from Warcraft except he's one of the horsemen of the apocalypse. The horsemen function as a sort of arbitrating force that keeps the balance between heaven and hell and it's your job to restore order after demons broke the peace and brought about a scourge on earth. It plays a lot like the Zelda games, with lots of unique weapon upgrades you need to access new areas. Anyway, it's pretty fun but kinda repetitive.

Do you have a crunchyroll account? They dont have any of the classics, but I know they've got all of Titan and you can stream at 1080 quality. Could be a good option for you, unless you want to collect physical media.

If you need some yen on AB let me know, I dont use it much anymore.

Academic level research...*cringe*. Well, I envy your dedication. I'm sure its nice to have that sort of drive and I'm glad to hear you're excelling. Yeah, the fee for the GRE is pretty rough...hopefully you need only take it once, lol.

Eugene is Eugene. Russ is Russ. Tyler is Tyler. I am pretty much the same as well. Unemployed; no particular goal. We did have a good time in Japan though, and it was great to see my host family again. Went to a lot of familiar places and some new ones, including that village where Higurashi is set, which was a very nice change of scenery. Still unconvinced that I'd want to actually live there, but I do really enjoy visiting.
Rakanishu Dec 29, 2014 12:04 AM
Hey there, it's been a while. How go the academic endeavors and family life? I know you probably hate the whole "catching up" routine as much as I do, but I'm just wondering how you're doing.

Hey, I just read your Full Metal Panic TSR review, and I gotta add a little detail I loved and which in category with pouring little drink on the table while trying to sip it in the glass, which you mentioned.

And I'm talking about how Kurz Weber was acting nervous with all the movements on the chair while Sousuke was talking with their new team leader Ben after their fight in the pub. I've seen many anime, maybe not enough, but they mostly freeze the charachters that arent directly involved in the dialog at that very moment. I just loved it.

Maybe it's a little stupid, but i had to share its, cuz I've just finished watching and still under impression, and just read your review. Very helpful anyway. Thanks :D

I don't come on MAL often, but I just read your AzuDaioh and Lucky Star reviews and I'm just gonna say that I absolutely LOVED them. Not once have I so completely and wholeheartedly agreed with every single word in an anime review, and yet I find myself doing so for two of yours. Great job ^_^
