Hey hon, hope all is well with you. If I make you all nervous and blushy from text, then just be glad that you managed to avoid me at the APUK meet! (even if you are a girly man who is scared of ponies :P )
But now have my train tickets booked for my interview (4th Feb), and arranged to meet Kitty for dinner afterwards before I head back home. A little nervous about the test day, as there is a lot of accompanying paperwork I have to study beforehand! be exciting if nothing else!
I guess I am feeling better now, but I have a doctors appointment on Monday to make sure everything is finally clear. I started back at work on Tuesday just gone, and it has been a relentless nightmare ever since. Are you back getting your learn on? How much longer til you graduate, can't be long now til you're forced into the real world!
I recently posted another review, and I think you should watch that too. You may discover you have a lolicon side when you discover Uma... Then again, to be watching Strike Witches with a libido is probably a bad idea anyways, unless you have a soft spot for either enormous boobs or dead flat chests :p
If you have reasonable basic cooking skills (i.e. can chop an onion) and have everything out on the side before you start, then the 30 minute thing is very easy - I dunno what all of the hooha is about! And what do you mean your cooking will detonate my grey matter? Is it spicy, just that awesome or something else???
Unfortunately, flights everywhere have gone up significantly in price because of the increased fuel costs and general inflation. We do have over 5000 airmiles though, so are considering a weekend european break before summer. You have any holiday plans, or are you too poor of a stoodent?
Anyways, I have more crappy anime to watch (yay for Monochrome Factor and Suteki Tantei Labyrinth), so I'll catch you on the flip side ^^
Here is one you must watch if you like awesome animation :D
Heya :). Clannad is certainly one that you must be prepared for indeed. To be quite honest I couldn't even finish the second season my first time through with the series because of the emotional overload that waited ahead. It's still one of the greatest animes in my opinion. I've been waiting for that next great thing (Angel Beats! in terms of emotion in my opinion came close, but not quite), but I have yet to stumble upon it.
I saw that you've been working your way towards watching Strike Witches. I would highly recommend it. I initially watched it out of boredom, but by the time I finished the first season I was dying to start the second season.
Christmas was good, alot of driving but it's always worth it when it's for family (and of course when presents are involved!). If it wasn't for work early the next morning, would have been a perfect weekend. Hope your holidays went well too.
And I know I'm not that old yet lol, but being the oldest out of my siblings, and even the oldest out of my girlfriends side of the family age range wise I figure I have some room to call myself an old man :). And yes, reminiscing too early on can be bad for your health :) lol.
Egads, that was indeed an epic reply. You deserve a slow clap for that one sweetie. But slow and steady with an impressive climax isn't necessarily a bad thing...
The journey up north was the worst part about it - 7 hours in the car to do just 250 miles was a killer. Thank god the Audi has an iPod port and plenty of musics to make things a little less painful. Aparently they were "unprepared" in Oxfordshire for the snow (Dorset managed fine).... bloody southerners :P
As for the new job, it's something I can't talk about, but would be an amazing career to progress. As I'm not going in at graduate level, I'm kinda hoping I could maybe start on a higher wage and that would cover travel in London. Well, a girl can hope, can't she? You should visit the new forest though - the views are spectacular and the ponies are lovely :P
Seem to be a bit better in the last week, although I have to admit to being perpetually tired. I have to admit to being in bed at 9pm the other night and waking up at 10am.....I'm not usually such a lazy cow, honest! My birthday was still fun though, and copious amounts of gin also helped. There were 8 of us went out for a curry, and it was pretty damned good.
I hope family stuff didn't get you down too much - I think I was let off lightly this year due to the festive cheer. Sucks though when people let their own problems become your problems too :(
You really should watch Strike Witches, even if it is just to further my plans of turning you into a proper pervert. I've just finished Magical Pokan, and that is utterly adorable and a lot of fun - well worth a look! Especially as you have some questionable sounding shows on your want to watch list. Thanks for the kind bloggy comments again! There is a way to officially follow, but I have no idea how to do it...
I had a lovely Christmas day, nice and quiet. How was yours? Overindulge? I'm cooking one of Jamies recipes tonight in fact - the duck salad with the big crispy croutons. Got some fresh bread baking as we speak! His recipes are extremely simple to follow - just make sure you have everything out before you start! I don't think I've ever tried Veezuealan before, but I'm game for most things! Looking forwards to it :p
The Canada trip has been put on hold for now. Our friends have decided to go skiing, and whilst I would love to join them, £600 each for flights, £400 each for the hotel, £350 each for a lift pass, ski hire, insurance, food etc etc... bit too pricey when I need a few grand for the wedding next year. Maybe the year after, as it does look like a beautiful country to explore.
Be good to chat on msn again (not that it happened much before!). You should at least drop by irc and catch up with the perverted gossip in there :P
Anyways, take it easy!
Hey hon, sorry for the delay, but I have been without interwebs for like 5 days now. Went oop north and spent all of my time visiting family, so no time to talk to you or more importantly, post on my blog! Almost 7 hours sat in the car on the way up cause of a combination of the snow, and Oxford council doing nothing about the roads. They hadn't gritted the A34 or M40, so it was a nightmare!
May not have to worry about my pain in the neck customer for too much longer, as I have a job interview in February. Just something I applied for on a whim, but I have passed numerous online tests and have now been invited to the London test centre to try my luck! Would be amazing if I got it, but I really wouldn't want to make the move to the big city - I love the New Forest too much!
And after saying I was rid of the cold, turns out I still have it - or at least some kind of virus. Been feeling distinctly dodgy for a few days now and it was terrible being out for my birthday and calling the night to a close early so I could get some sleep. I blame it on lack of tonsils!
Seems the blog is finally taking off - more views and more followers make Kira a happy girl! Must be the numerous perverts out there who want to read about the puppies... not that I'm looking at you. Strike Witches is certainly enjoyable (for more reasons than the obvious), and I think you should give it a whirl, sugar.
I have all of the family stuff out of the way now, and even better is not spending Christmas day there and being forced to eat dried up turkey and overcooked sprouts. You have to ask nicely to eat my homecooked delights, especially as I will spend most of the day prepping for the cooking! Even more awesome is that I got Jamies 30 min cookbook, so will be having awesome fun in the new year trying out some new dishes.
I know what you mean about family matters, having plenty of those at the moment too. Why people can't just get along, I'll never know. All of my family still live up north, I've been the only one to escape so far. Another reason I would never move back :P
If we go to Canada, it would be Vancouver to visit friends for a week. Be my friend's 30th, so a good excuse to fly all that way. Where have you been out there? I've not sampled any of it yet, so feeling a little clueless! And no, I'm not married yet. Been taking my time with that one (9.5 years so far). So for once, you can mark yourself as being right :P
If you want to see the pics from my hols, you should either jump on msn or irc sometime and I'll share them - even if you do sound like a horny 15 year old!
Thank you for the offer of the card, maybe next year ;P
