You may have problems with your last name, but you're not alone! Thanks to telemarketers, I have now come up with five different ways to pronounce my last name. T_T And being that I'm an avoidant paranoid, I now believe I can only identify with one character-- BEAST. XD

One word-- yum. :P

Whoo, PoT!! They're terribly cute. And... is that Fuji I see leaning on Tezuka?? Heh heh... Anywayz, your X casting is hilarious, even if I don't know all the charas. ^^ Fuji as the Sakurazukamori is just a tad disturbing, tho it oddly makes sense...

One Piece!! Oh, so that's his name. ^^ See, I've only seen about one episode's worth of One Piece, and it was subtitle-less, so I had no clue what was going on, other than rubber dude saving the day. Anyway, wah, Sanji always makes me think of Yuki Eiri. Only, well, shounen style. ^^;;;

And speaking of Yuki... (thanks for the quiz, Laree!)

What (yaoi) anime pairing are you?

this quiz was made by Eike and Mirai

o_o I was hoping for KuboxToki, but hey, there were quite a few good pairings listed. But... Shuuichi????

You're right. I know I don't need to, but I also know it's going to come up sometime. It's just that I had a hard enough time talking about it with someone I knew was cool with homosexuality, and I think for me, it's just an awkward subject to talk about whilst getting to know someone who'll be breathing down your neck for a year. Well, I guess as long as she doesn't erase my hard drive (with all my yaoi pics and fics), I'll be fine! I hope.

lol! It's always the quiet ones, ne? Considering that I potentially fit that category... -_- And what else has Okiayu done? I guess we all have our fave seiyuus now... My friend said PoT is terribly contrived, but I think I'll watch it for the bishie factor. Can't go wrong with that. Especially with said serious tennis players with glasses and windswept layered hair... *cough*

wai, macs! *glomp* I'm on an imac right now, but it's my mum's compy after I leave for school. Then I get an emac!!! (e=education? Hell no! e=erjika :P) And... your real name is Erika? YES!!! Someone else who spells their name the RIGHT way (as opposed to "Erica"-- blah...) Coolness. *now takes vow of silence*

"In this song, they deal candidly with themes of brotherly love and homosexuality." ^_^

Avoidant:Very High

Oy vey... somehow I'm not terribly surprised, tho if they had a category for bipolar, I would have done quite well there. ^_^ And if they had one for just depression, they'd probably just say, "Um, honey? You need to see a psychiatrist. NOW." ^^;;;;;;;;

Hmm... slight problem going on.

My roommate for the dorms just called me today, and later sent me an email. She's unbelievably sweet, and cool, and practically resonates a "girl-next-door" vibe. And while I'm sure she's not totally innocent, she's still got a kind of naivete about her (and I mean that in the best of ways).

How the hell am I supposed to tell her about yaoi? o_o

I mean, we're going to be living with each other for the next nine months, and there's no way I could hide it even if I wanted to. And it's not that I think that she'd object to homosexuality, 'cos she struck me as being pretty open-minded, but admit it, yaoi isn't exactly "pure love above all else." I mean, I'm not ashamed of it, though it's not something you just go around advertising... but how am I supposed to explain this to her. "Yes, I like guys. I like seeing guys together. No it's not quite an obsession, but it's turning into something damn close to it." Well, shit. How am I supposed to tell her something like that? Geez, having a gigantic porn collection would be easier to explain. -_-

Anyway... danke! That's what I thought. And I haven't seen enough of Chobits to know anyone other than Hideki, Shinbo, and Chii. ~_~ One day... one day...

Lol! All right, Nadia, I'll acknowledge you here. ^_~ And nice layout! Very... um, red! ^^

And finally, I added Laree of Slam Dunk fandom to the blog list. She's a cool writer, it's fun to read her stuff, and... she likes Hakkai!!!! *glomp* She likes 35, but hey, we won't hold it against her. One day, she will see the light. ^_^

Eheh... ^^;;;; Turns out I'll be able to take aikido after all. Erjika no baka...

Kevian's back!! *throws confetti*

Hope you had fun in China, Liz!

Hey Mura, since you know more about PoT than me... is Tezuka's voice actor the one who gives you eargasms (dunna remember his name)? Or is it someone else? (and on a sidenote, Tezuka just proves that I have a glasses fetish -_-)

Sideways!Bondage!Clow. Go Kit!

And... AokixKeiichi?? o_o And people thought FuuxKei was bizarre... Ammie, I hope your brain doesn't short out!

I think your comments died again, so I just want to say that I'm glad you're doing better. *huggle* And key lime pie can do wonders! ^^ And your views on Arashi are quite... interesting. ^^; Though I never did think about being a priestess and the whole virginity thing. Should have been obvious, with so much Fushigi Yuugi stuff floating around.

*'nother huggle* Hope you're feeling better, dear. And, um, I guess we'll have to arrange another meeting, ne?

*pats Koji* Hope you're still alive, dear. College suddenly doesn't look so fun. o_o
