Salesman came back today. Asked me out. Yeah... no. Then he asked if we could perhaps e-mail as friends, but I'd rather not.

I guess that was a bit mean of me, but I can barely give my friends the attention they deserve as it is. I have plenty of acquaintances I would like to get to know better. I don't really need more people in my life right now, especially not someone who is interested in a romantic relationship.

I gues I was his type, but he wasn't mine. Too bad.

Well... that was weird.

We got glass fiber installed a couple months ago (the owners of the building paid for it), but I haven't updated my service yet, because the cheap basics are just fine for me. Someone from my current provider came by to inform me about my glass fiber options.

It started out fairly normal. We compard my current plan to the other, more fancy ones and quickly concluded the one I have now suits me just fine.

As we said good bye:

"You're a lovely woman, so natural and genuine, not at all like those fake Barbies you see everywhere."

I laughed and thanked him for the compliment, because, you know, it was probably a real one. If you want to sell someone something you compliment them before you start your salesman speech, not after.

Then he saw a gray flash and noticed the rabbit cage.

"You have pets? I hadn't even noticed! This house smells so clean, not like there are pets living here at all! How do you do it?"

Well, by cleaning the cage once week and opening a window every day or so, even in this cold. Though I honestly don't think my house smells all that clean. Maybe neutral, but not clean.

As I opened the door for him:

"You are really a lovely person. I hope you'll find a great boyfriend someday. You truely deserve it!"

I stand slightly taller at 1.60m (which is like 5 feet and 3 inches?), but even I get that sometimes. Being able to fit into childrens size clothing is kinda convenient though.

Oh, yeah, picture time! This is what it looks like behind the screens of the Tsunacon dealerroom. I'm the one finishing up some phonestraps.

It's funny how after not having seen someone for months or even years it can be so easy to fall into the same pace again. No real awkwardness, just the same sameness in a good way. Which basically means we were able to say catchphrases in a spontanous but synchronised fashion.

Animeconvention was a lot of fun. I'll never tire of the powers imbued by a dealerbadge! Oh, and I accidently cosplayed a character from a small press comic that hasn't been released yet. Now his creator keeps comparing me to her 'gay immortal wizard'.

I have money and I want something made... WHAT SAY YOU!?

I second this statement. Did you actually make the prinny, or is that an example?


I'm sorry to say I didn't make those... but a friend and fellow member of our circle did. Here's her website/blog. Feel free to contact her :)

One of the amigurumi I made recently is this one:



I have a bad habit of not taking pictures of the things I made.

Our circle's new rainbow amigurumi are making men question their sexuality. Sales are going to be good this weekend.
What's a amigurumi? I suppose I could google it, but I don't feel like it.


Stuff like this:

What was wrong with Grandia's translation?

Some of the VA were really bad/annoying, but I can't think of any issues with the actual translation...

Oh, we did that in Europe too! In the end the first one won. No surprise there.

Me and my little cousin E. (age 7) were being very artistic. I drew Fluttershy. She recognised it as a My Little Pony, but she didn't know who Fluttershy was. That was kind of disappointing.

What's a Barnaby?

My pet rabbit.

The oven is fine and my dad was nice enough to bring me a pizza. That was kind of cool of him. Too bad I wouldn't stick around for a minute longer because I wanted to show him Barnaby.

I had a friend who liked to crack her joints. It's a great way to annoy people.

I was baking a pizza I had been looking forward to for days and mere minutes before it was done it caught fire. I have no idea what went wrong and that scare took a year of my life, but fortunately the damage is limited to my pizza. I think.

Now I'm hungry, my oven might be broken and when I called my dad he didn't even offer to a seat at the dinner table. Okay, I guess he has other worries right now. My mom and sister might not be able to take the train home from the airport, which means someone has to pick them up. On the other hand, it's not like he can drive that distance with his bad arm and my cousin's husband has already offered to drive over to Schiphol. So... yeah.

Yeah, those places are depressing, especially the ones with a lot of people who want to die but can't. My grandparents have been waiting for over five years. They're trying to slowly kill themselves by eating a box of sugarcubes and multiple packs of cookies a week. It's not working. The nursing staff thinks my grandfather shouldn't smoke, but we buy him his favourite sigars anyway. My grandmother suffers from dementia. Out of her nine children who are still alive, she only recognises my mom. According to her, my mom is 21 and does not have children. I use that as an excuse not to visit. Nobody blames me.

Meanwhile, on my dad's side of the family, people have been succesfully dying of the results morbid obesity before their 60th birthday. One of my aunts was so fat she could barely get out of bed. So she didn't and got even fatter. She died there too. Wasn't discovered until three days later.

When I'm really old, I want to go like my uncle's parents. His father died when he and his wife were watching TV. She got up to pour some coffee and when she got back he was gone. She kept leading a fairly active lifestyle. After a few years she got really sick. It was clear she would never be able to get back to her old life if she ever got out of the hospital, so she stopped eating and drinking, and refused medication. She died two days later.
