Things I still need to buy:

Favourite screencap of the moment: This made me crack up. (from iroh.org)

Favourite series of the moment:
* One Piece
* Avatar: The Last Airbender
* Doctor Who & Torchwood
* I've lost all credibility by now
* House M.D.
* Inda series (Books are great for you!)

Things I don't quite get the hype about:
* Twilight. Sorry? I really can't stand this series. Feel free to ask me why.
* The Dark Knight. I thought it was a good movie, and that Heath Ledger's performance was particularly fantastic, but I didn't think the movie overall was as awe-inspiring as a lot of people are saying it is.
* John McCain and Barack Obama. YEAH SUCK IT BOTH OF YOU. I'm actually pretty interested in the election, but the ad campaigns (lol) and feeble attacks (fail) are getting ridiculous. C'mon, McCain, if you really want to attack Obama, don't wildly insult the Christians in an attempt at wry humour. Fail. And Obama, you! Agree to some debates already! Fail.
* Crushes, especially on straight girls. Damn me.

Favourite blog-ish things:
* The Sartorialist
* Style Bubble
* Illustration Art
* The Big Picture
* Human Variation
Most of these were recced to me by other people. Thanks guys! I really enjoy them.

Okay, okay. I'll stop the silly 'yeah, this is for one day back' excuse thing. This post is for June 11th, so there!

1. Things I liked that I didn't think I would like.

* Danny Phantom: For some reason (probably due to my questionable taste in everything, questionable not necessarily being bad but just odd), I really ended up liking this Nick Toon. The first few episodes, anyway. I miss the days of old-school Nickelodeon, but there have been some good ideas lately that I haven't been able to ignore due to my aforementioned questionable taste.

* Detective Conan: The initial premise interested me, but the interest waned a bit after I saw the first few episodes. And then the interest and love for dorky shrunken detectives SNOWBALLED. The series is hella, hella long, but it's good - and it teaches a lot. Seems to be going into some serious story arcs now, manga-wise.

* Gilmore Girls: Yeah. I used to make fun of people for liking this show. And then I realised I couldn't judge if I hadn't seen it, so I had to take a peek, and I realised... yeah, it was girly, it wasn't that different, but it carried itself pretty well and wasn't a horrible show like so many are. I'm not enamoured with Gilmore Girls, but I do like the series.

2. Things I didn't like that I thought I would like.

* Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: Okay, to be honest, this series freaked the shit out of me. I also didn't like the CLAMP-designed characters, strangely enough, and it didn't help towards making it appeal to me. The strange violence and odd psychology in this series were, in my opinion, in large part superfluous, and the psychology itself was hardly as sophisticated as in Death Note or something of the sort. I was not impressed.

* Homestyle Pancakes (Aunt Jemima): Okay, seriously, this is SERIOUS BUSINESS. I bought them because I couldn't find the Buttermilk kind and I was like, "Ooh, you know, this'll be good! Variety is good for everyone!" But ALAS, NO. IT WAS AWFUL. They tasted bad and even an (un)healthy dousing of maple syrup couldn't help it. I cried bitter tears about being unable to enjoy my pancake lunner.

* 20th Century Boys: Sometimes a manga that I thought I would like based on the first few chapters just doesn't... go. I don't generally force myself to read or watch things that I don't like, but someone had recommended it to me, so I tried to give it a try. Ultimately, though - gave up.

3. Tomorrow's the last real day of school for me. Eh. Whatever. High school's over, now on to the next chapter. :) I have to pick up my art stuff from various rooms - I wonder if I'll remember?

4. I'm a dork. And I illustrate fanfics that I really, really like, such as this one: Windfall by Ysabet. Check out the !!supercute!! thing I tried to draw in the manga style (dork, dork, dork...). )

5. Holy crap, is this long or what? And I haven't even said anything remotely interesting!

6. Happy Hump Day.
