Current mood: lethargic

In so many ways, the holidays are over.

Work has resumed a normal schedule, which means students don't show up for their assigned duties, leaving me in the hole.

RL is gone, and I wish it weren't so. There are definitely some friends I don't feel I deserve, and RL tops the list. Now it's back to text messages when we can. Hurrah.

RR is back. Halloo! I'll put in the RAM, but I'll need Windows OS disks to fix the other problem.

I'm constantly trying to figure out how to negotiate active and sleep times. Something I'm not good at. Fortunately internal guilt and insomnia help manage it for me. The dreams are shameful, but at least while I'm in the dreams, I'm taking responsibility.

In so many ways, the holidays are over.

Before RL left, we plowed through the series Gasaraki. Very much a post-Evangelion anime. You have the giant robots, but they're tied to an ancient and mystic conspiracy. The difference here, is that the mythology, politics, and feelings are entirely japanese.

The basic premise is that there's a centuries old japanese family that once had secret mastery of the country. This will was enforced by gods they were able to summon through elite members of the family.

In the current era, Mobile armor is being tested for presentation to the world that operates under mysterious technology. Technology that virtually requires a member of the family to operate it. Meanwhile in a small nation, another organization is making the same armor...With someone else controlling it.

This battle rocks japan at its core. Questions about japan's weakness and its place in the world are asked and acted upon. It's about loyalty and duty, and by the end both sides win by admitting defeat.

Good anime.

Thanks to E, I received roughly four or five complete anime series (EEE! Thank you E! I can't thank you enough! You are uber-spiffy!). Hellsing, Chobits, Angelic Layer, and *shudder* Digi Charat. I'll provide complete reviews as I get through each.

As sad as I sound, please keep in mind that I am better off than I've been in my entire life. You are all wonderful friends, each making me very happy. I have someone who loves me, and I will claim my future.
