Smile! (PoT/Momo)

State of the Thistle Address. (Life, anime, HP, and everything)

Today's shaping up to be a much better day than the rest of the week has offered. Knock on wood that it'll remain that way.

Since I'm running low on things to watch, I've been doing some downloading. I'm grabbing the first 20 eps of Naruto, as well as some series called Black Heaven.

I've read over the Knight2King essay/ideas at unplottables. While they're very interesting ideas, and I see the reason/logic behind them, I feel they're giving JKR way, way, way, way too much credit. Just because you see images in your tea leaves doesn't mean they really hold some meaning as to your future.

My new monitor makes me surprisingly happy. I don't hardly ever spend much money on myself, and when I do I never buy really expensive things, so this was a nice treat. Somehow having the image go all the way to the housing instead of having the black between the picture and the plastic/housing is a really wonderful thing; I don't see how it could really make much of a difference, but somehow it's really nice.

Hm, this is a rather low content post, isn't it? Maybe I write more when I'm unhappy/stressed. Heh. Well, okay, guess we'll just end this here then!

Happy Friday, folks!

ETA: This has to be the most sexiest fanart ever. It was a gift for gmth, however I don't believe that I'll be able to resist stealing it. Mmmrrrowl. (Lucius Malfoy, HP fandom. Work safe.)

Smile! (PoT/Momo)

I ♥ ♥ ♥ Naruto!

Eee! What a great series! I'm only three eps in, but I'm in love!

First off: The music! How is it that music never affected me much in American movies/TV shows/cartoons, but when it comes to anime it can really make a series so much better? Naruto's music makes me bounce around happily.

Second: The characters rock. For a long time I avoided this series because Naruto and a couple characters looked sort of stupid (and it's about ninjas? Ninjas? C'mon...), but I was wrong. He's highly cute, and a number of the other characters are interesting as well (though we've not met too many yet). However! I already have a favorite! Sasuke. He'll fight right into my collection -- he can bunk with Fuwa and Kaidou! Mmm.

Third: And the biggest reason is... This! How can you expect anything but great things from a series that gives you boy/boy kissing within the first three eps? Hee! Eee!

One question: Those markings on Naruto's face are supposed to look like whiskers? Or is that just chance..? I guessed it was because of the fox-spirit thingie, or am I missing something?

Fuwa tackled

Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men...

("Laid", right? It's too late for me to be sure. Bah. Bad me!)

I got waylaid (gah! Another 'laid'!) in my CD burning: After I burn one, I watch a minute or two in a couple different spots in the eps to make sure they came out okay. By chance, I stumbled upon scenes that I could get good screencaps for for making icons! (Whistle! icons are way overdue.) So I stopped burning and made *two* of them!

Alas, 100x100 is so small! This one made me snicker muchly when it was larger. I paused on this scene by chance, and noticed how... hee, wrong it could appear to be. (Poor Fuwa!)

Anyway, it's late. To bed with me! (Eh, that's an order to myself, not an invitation. Back, back! All of you! ...Sure, snicker at me. Meanies!)

Oh, before I go: Naruto (the character, not the series) is interestingly animalistic. Sometimes he seems to sit like a dog (or fox) would... Oh! Oh! And, oh, I should upload something...

Here:
How wrong is it for me to purr over this?
And this?

Non-con with minors. Sheesh! I'm so bad. (And I hope those screenshots aren't fuzzy for anyone. I *think* it's only my monitor...)

*Now* I'm going to bed! Heehee! (So very hyper, this isn't a good thing. Woo, bouncie, hee! Ninjas are *very* sexy. Mmmm.)
