Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Aw shit, I've read that thread. In a kind of cosmic sense I'm not surprised that that's you, Chuck.

Congratulations on the house as well. Hopefully the rent's not too painful.

I've spent a lot of time here today dwelling upon why my life sucks, but I do have a little bit of good news! I moved here to LA just a little over a month ago, and tomorrow I start my first day at my new job: crew member at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. :D Given my experience as assistant manager of a Dominoes, I'm being put on the fast track for management training. I'm really stoked to start bringing in an income again, and hopefully the busy work will distract me from my other worries in life.

My kitchen is lit by twelve 50W low-voltage halogen lamps. Well, it was; today I replaced them with twelve 6W mains-voltage LED lamps (removing the transformers took most of the time). I now have the same or slightly higher light levels, and more uniform, because some of the halogens had lost brightness with age and not all had the same beam width. I calculate that the saving in electricity consumption will be about £1 a day - for a capital outlay of under £120 (bulbs and GU10 tails for the fittings).

I have another room with similar lights and usage which I will make the same change to soon, and a third that is little used so can be left till last.

Eighteen months ago I put into a new extension what at that time were the first LED lights I'd seen whose quality was satisfactory for domestic living. The new bulbs each cost one fifth as much money - that's how fast things have changed.

Kinda minor RML, but Valve has finally completed moving Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition over to Steamworks, so I'll finally be able to buy the game on Steam in this country (at a vastly inflated price, but oh well) without being flagged as an insidious pirate.

The nice user on NeoGAF who's buying me a New Nintendo 3DS XL has ordered it and it should be here either tomorrow or Wednesday. (He did one-day shipping, but the site only ships on the same day for one-day or overnight shipping if ordered before 5pm ET and he ordered it at 7pm ET)

But still I can't wait.

I've been playing Taiko no Tatsujin for the 3DS (emulator) and I got perfect combo on two songs I really wanted perfect combos in. I also completed a song at the "Oni" level (expert/intense, whatever), which is a first for me, too. I don't play the Taiko games every day but I need to practice the ones I have for the DS more, since I can only do the "tree" level, which is I guess intermediate.

It feels so good to play a game every day and then monitor your progress. However, my fingers do hurt....

How do you get strangers on the internet to buy you such gifts? I really want a PS4.

The excitement of potential relocation.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Kind of TMI and kind of a weird RML but
SPOILER: Show
my period started this morning and I'm just so relieved, despite the cramping. Its kind of a long-ish story but the past couple weeks I was going through kind of an ordeal involving REALLY bad cramps but nothing really coming out and then I tried looking up some facts about it on a online womens health chat and some of them were like "ummmm it could mean you're pregnant?" and I just went into pure panic mode. I calmed down a little with the thought that it could just be an off cycle caused by stress (me? stress? -o-; ) and two doctor's visits later (a pap smear and an ultra-sound) and I haven't gotten the results back yet BUT if I'm having a period, maybe everything is fine. Maybe? I'm just really relieved its not pregnancy. Not that I thought after the shock wore off it was (which caused my boyfriend a bit of worry considering we've only done it once and he wore a condom) but maybe everything is on the right track now

Fellow lady here!

It's okay, and yeah I don't think it's wise (from my experience) to look up symptoms online for most things. I have this odd, reddish itch on my toes and google suggested I have an infection/disease, when I'm certain it's just a reaction to the cold weather and perhaps lacking moisture. I just ended up asking my sister and she said it's common. I have definitely had what you're describing and tbh I usually don't panic until a month goes by then nothing happens. The 28 day method is good, too.

SPOILER: Show
By the way, one symptom that describes pregnancy that isn't common for PMS are darkening nipples. If your nipples remain the same shade and just merely hurt under physical pressure, you are likely not pregnant

I was watching Ponyo the other night and decided to give the Japanese theme a listen to (I like the English dub, eat me). It feels really weird and really good when I can go "I CAN UNDERSTAND (most of) IT"

It's the little things.

I've been unemployed for nearly 6 months, but yesterday I went to an interview to be a Janitor at a grocery store that opens up soon and I think it actually went really well.

Dude. I've found a YouTube account that posts old Cartoon Network cartoons in Japanese. This should be fun for my upcoming trip.

I think it may be the official Cartoon Network Japan account, actually.

I got my results back from my pelvic ultrasound. Normal across the board. ^_^

My University has delayed the start of classes until 11:00 tomorrow. Seeing as I have a test at 9:30, this means my test will be either postponed to a new date or at the very least moved to latter in the day.

NBA 2K15 and the Walking Dead Season 2. But the games that really make getting the PS4 worthwhile have yet to be released. Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, Silent Hills, etc.
