Yuletide 2020

Just got done wrapping the presents for this year’s holiday (and for Mukuro’s birthday). The lights on our artificial tree died this year sadly, so we’ll be getting a new one soon. I think it looks pretty nice regardless.

Bad Puns

I have a memory that popped into my head recently, for no easily discernible reason. It is a memory of something that would become one of my personal trademarks; an incredibly forced pun based on environmental signage/text. This memory is perhaps the first time in my life where I consciously recognized that a joke I had made was, to put it lightly, extremely labored.  In the memory, I am around 9 years old, which would…

Pumpkin Scissors: This anime has a weird tone, and I wasn’t initially convinced that I would like it. It’s sort of a military-drama-comedy, about a unit engaged in reconstruction after the end of a war. The goofy…

Blogging… again.

I used to be a blogger. A habitual blogger, even. Rarely a day would go by without me spewing at least a few of my thoughts out online to my network of ‘friends’. I was the right age for that to be the case I guess. I joined Livejournal when I was about 16, back in 2002ish. I maintained that blog until around 2010. Now, here at the end of 2020, it’s been about 10…
