Ah, life.  
(This is an Assorted Stupidity entry, because I have decided to let my mind have a break over this long weekend. If something comes up, it comes up ... and if its worth thinking extensively about, I will. But my brains need a break.)

Yet another new look for Tralala. My Yukino icon (though I still love its shoujo grace) gave way to the new one you see with this post, drawn by yours truly. Sephiroth, the icon anomaly, forever remains it seems.

The Hammerspace guestbook was signed by ass@hotmail.com, who is none other than "penis boy." Way to go, chump! Leave your mark on the world! XD I'm not sure what this fellow was going for, but it certainly amused him for a few minutes and I for a few seconds (but I have a site which all ages visit, and exclusive control over the delete function).

tsukitty, do you know what's up with Hostrocket? I haven't heard about any problems (or perhaps I haven't been listening), but my FTP can't seem to connect for either Hammerspace or for the family website. Makes it hard to update/fix problems. XP

I wonder what kind of luck I have to lead such a peaceful online life. I also wonder why I just ate a whole can of Spaghettios, cold.

The campus has pretty much shut down for the Easter weekend, so I won't be able to get my mail until Monday. This is somewhat annoying because there is either a package awaiting me or soon to be. I am easily distracted from this, though, because I started playing Shadow Hearts (loaned to me, oh so long ago, by hypertechie. I still can't believe they named the main macho male Yuri. I hope that the gal who smacks enemies with her Bible becomes more useful in the future ... right now, all she's done so far is to scream, sleep, and tremble. She's weaker than Yuri (dear God, they named him Yuri), has an incredibly low number of Sanity Points (she's up to a whopping 5 now ... compared to Y.'s 20-something), and only one Light spell (Cure). I should just let her go Berserk during battle, and see what she does. XD Unfortunately, the battles thus far are either very easy, or impossible to win (you can't win some because the storyline won't let you).

I like characters who smack their opponents with books (Okage, Okage!), but I don't have much tolerance for damsel-in-distress-eeking, unless its an eek of terror on my part.

I think our familiarity with Japanese culture has made it so that we can't stop snickering at the idea of a male named "Yuri"... eventhough, according to Kabalarian, it's a perfectly legitimate name for a male, and is actually fairly masculine (some sites claim it translates to "farmer" in Russian). And, outside of the Japanese context, there *is* the Russian name "Yuri" that's used for males, and apparently has the meaning previously mentioned. I haven't played Shadow Hearts, so I don't know if it's meant to be interpretted as a Russian name, but... the name does exist. So my question is... how well does his personality fit the name? Oo;

Your first name of Yuri makes you spontaneous and versatile, enjoying congenial association, appreciating the finer things of life, and loving to talk and debate. You are strong willed and self-sufficient, not depending on others for encouragement. Your desire for independence and freedom means that you seldom tolerate limitations. Although you are naturally happy and generous, you fail to hold friendships because you are inclined to be too dogmatic, argumentative, or sarcastic. In an argument, you usually emerge the victor, but at a cost. Physical weaknesses centre in the head. The eyes, ears, teeth, or sinuses could be affected, or you could experience loss of hair. Skin problems such as acne or eczema could also appear.

Darn that cute icon! ::shakes fist:: Congratulations on posting, too. Also, I read a little farther and figured out that it wasn't Nakanokimi, it was Ukifune that you were speaking of ...

As far as Yuri goes, he's supposedly Chinese. He is introduced as the "Rude Hero," and speaks in that grammatically-incorrect dialect that is meant to be "tough," or something. He doesn't seem to be either happy or generous, looking out only for himself and tortured by those damn voices in his head that tell him to do things. lol

He has to emerge the victor, because at this point, Alice would probably go crazy/die if she were on her own in a fight. >.>;

Alfador = *gush* inducing
Yes. ^_^ Ukifune = replacement for Aoi, not for Oigimi and not for Nakanokimi, in spite of the thousands of papers which argue for the latter two, and the very few (if any) papers which argue the former. ... I should go visit my professor to get that paper if he hasn't shredded it yet. Oo; I wonder what he thought of it. *horrible slacker* Either that, or I just never feel like climbing those stairs after my writing class. o_o; That could be it...

And Yuri... in Chinese...? o_O; Okay, now that just kinda makes you wonder if you want to think of him as something that the Japanese wanted to use to taunt or tease (you know, if all of a sudden you ask a guy, "hey... do thoughts of yuri turn you on?" and he coughs loudly, and then you snicker in private because had absolutely no idea what you were getting him to admit to ^^), or if they really meant something Russian. ;_; Yuri being a lily... I wonder how in the world it got the female-female pairings meaning. o_O;

And on the Alfador = cuteness note! I liked Janus (from Chrono Trigger). Janus > Magus, in my opinion. o_o; Magus isn't nearly as cool, even if he has a larger cult following. And I went completely off-topic. o_O; This, of course, is not completely unusual. ^^; Oh the temptation to make it an animated .gif with Alfador running, the way he does when he's stalking you. oO; It's so adorable and it would rot your teeth from the sugary cuteness. =D *pets Alfador* Ze perfect icon. =D

Yaghyaghyagh, I didn't like Shadow Hearts. ^_^; It had moments, but as a whole, I didn't care for it. And, to my recollection, Alice doesn't get any less annoying as the story progresses.

"We're going to crash! CRASH, I tell you!!"

Margarete rocks. I want a coat like that someday ... *_*

Bahaha, yeah, I liked Margarete, and, actually, Yuri, too. The rest of the cast was kind of.. blah, from what I remember.

Have you gotten to the part with the old lady telling the story about the sea yet? X) It's not supposed to be funny, but I was literally falling out of my chair laughing through the whole story..
One Who Wanders: amusedabiona on April 21st, 2003 05:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah ... read the next most recent entry, that's the "movie" I was talking about. It inspired me with more irritation than laughter, though. ^^;

Actually, there was a kid who went to my high school by the name of Yuri. He was Russian and had very near to every tiny cliche you could pull up on farmers. Except, he was a white kid that enjoyed rap - so much so that you'd find him reinacting his favorite rap music videos in the various hallways of our school. It was funny to watch a tall, lanky Russian kid trying to sing with a black man's dialect (or woman's as the case may have been) ghetto bopping it throughout the school.
