Anime Musings in 2000

November 24, 2000 09:12 pm

My first entry here and I don’t know what to do with it! ^_^

November 28, 2000 08:36 pm
Gyeh! Just checked out Tin’s blog and upon reading her October 6 postings I realized what an elitist bitch I am. Gomen ne to anyone I’ve offended! I honestly thought I wasn’t doing any harm by saying that we could educate some people and help them learn more things about anime. *sigh* Oh well. Honestly, Tin-san, I swear I’ll think about things more before I say them!

so medyo tomow ngayon ako…

Okay, I finally figured out how this blog works, and I’m glad to say its appearance has improved a lot. Still working on Prescription and SNAPSHOT… More ring tones are coming, but I can’t figure out how to end the ring tone of the Shadow Skill OP “Born Legend”. Maybe some time this afternoon I’ll have a chance to listen to it when it shows on AXN. In the meantime my uncle is watching TV so I’m going to miss Fushigi Yuugi again. Oh, well.

Speaking of snapshots, I really am proud of my AnimeXplosion 2000 pics. Culture Crash comics might be having them published in Issue 4 (yeah!), so they borrowed all of my pics (minus the negatives, of course). I hope I get them back soon. I’m suffering from pic withdrawal. ^.^~

November 29, 2000 12:02 pm
*sigh* I’ve spent so much time online! X.X I know my parents are going to kill me, but I really just had to prettify this page. ^^” It’s actually my current project: hang my dirty laundry out to air in cyberspace. Hehe.

Anyway…

November 29, 2000 09:14 pm
I’m in the Pinoy Otaku chatroom right now bugging some people to browse the newly updated Prescription. Hehehe…

[activating “Labnat” mode]

Some time ago (I won’t say exactly when, because that person might be reading this), I saw him. *sigh* And I’m still in the dream world generated by that meeting… Daisuki na… Iie… Aisuru na hito…

I feel like a lovesick fool, but my own personal protocol keeps me from throwing myself at him. ^.^~ I almost did, though. Let me explain why I won’t.

It was just around last year when I almost entered into a relationship with another guy, but I didn’t. You ask “Why?”
Because:
(a) I was and still am too young for it, maturity-wise. I don’t think I can handle a commitment like that.
(b) I didn’t think he was the ONE.
(c) On another note, I’m still barred by my parents from courtship and all that stuff. Don’t date. If that person honestly means to court you, then he should also mean to push through with it–to marry you. And yeah, I agree with them. No sense having mundane relationships that obviously will not go anywhere. If I were to have a relationship, I’d like to have the security of knowing that we’d end up together.

In retrospect, if I had committed to a relationship at that time, then what? I still had two years of college to go… and I didn’t see myself with him for any particular length of time. And in retrospect, he was the ugliest guy I ever had a crush on!Well, not counting Jordan in kindergarten… Eheh.

So, I’ve vowed to myself that I’m not going to go looking for a guy. If God wills it, that guy will come to me. ^.^~ And if no one comes, then single blessedness, here I come! ^_^


December 1, 2000 08:58 pm
*sigh*… Watashi no aisuru na hito wo motomete!

Ahem, pardon the continuing lovesickness. Anyway, I’ve gotten myself a free domain name from netzero, so in 24 hourswww.doctormegumi.com should be working fine. It’s only a links page so I can keep track of all those websites I’m working on.

Sore dewa.

December 3, 2000 09:01 am
Woohoo!!! I dreamt of him last night! Ah, the angels are singing and the clouds are breaking, the sun finally shines in all its glory!

Of course, everyone should be sweatdropping at a lovesick Doctor Megumi right now… But I’m just so happy!

Side note: I am currently sick at home right now, so these are the ramblings of a raving lunatic. Ehehe…

December 4, 2000 09:17 pm
Dohhhhhhh…

Talk about making a fool of yourself in front of the whole world… yes, people, I have been heartbroken.

Back to your regular broadcasting. Thank you for commiserating with me.

Notes for today…

Tin! I take solace in the fact that it wasn’t me you were referring to in your October 6 post… nevertheless, I do feel kind of guilty. Besides, there’s a little bit of “elitist bitch” in all of us, ne? Oh, by the way, how am I gonna moderate the WKFF if I don’t have moderator capabilities? ^.^~ Still luv ya anyway, babe… Belated Happy Birthday!

Arhielle dear, why dontcha send me the URL to your Little Mermaid site? I’m sure I, the cartoon-and-anime-minded one, shall appreciate it most greatly. Hek-hek-hek… Wishing us both the best of luck in love matters!

–begin maniacal ranting–
www.doctormegumi.com is working at last! Now I can establish domination over the World Wide Web! OHOHOHOHOHOHO!
–end maniacal ranting–

I got a new batch of cosplay pics from Jen-chan, and I’ll be putting them up on SNAPSHOT in two weeks’ time. In the meantime, I’m sharpening my artistic skills on Corel PHOTOPAINT v.5 (@o@) by creating my own drawings. Check out the new pic on SNAPSHOT’s index page, hehehe…

And if I catch anyone with my pics on their website, you better prepare for some whooping, ‘coz I’ll get really mad…

Politics.

Despite the fact that it was not my intended course, yes, I am a Political Science major.

Despite the fact that I don’t participate in rallies, political parties in my college, or anything even remotely activist aside from wearing a button and sending Elagda petitions, I am one of the people who fervently want Erap to resign. That’s the reason why I included the secret diary of erap estrada in my links list. I believe my President is an idiot. I believe my President is corrupt. I believe my President is the embodiment of all that is wrong in the Filipino.

Yesterday the defense for President Estrada made its opening argument in the impeachment proceedings. They just quibbled on technicalities and twisted the words that the prosecution said in its opening arguments. What exactly are they trying to prove? That they’re truly incapable of defending him? They blame everything on Governor Chavit Singson’s fault–but isn’t it the President’s own fault that he got caught up in a jueteng scheme? He admitted to being on the take!

But then the prosecution began questioning its first witness, and it also became evident that they were inept. Dammit!

Idiots, them in government…

[Activating “Rant” mode]
Some people seem to like winning so much they let it go to their heads, even suggesting to other contestants ways to win. Geez. Talk about sounding full of yourself. How immature… What an idiot.
[Ending “Rant” mode]

On another note, I’m happy that I have people around me who care a lot about me. That’s why I’m glad I get to spend time with them tomorrow at a Christmas party.

You know who you are. ^.^~ Arigatou gozaimasu for a wonderful year! Merry Christmas!

Oniisama, this is your irritating lil sweetie speaking! ^.^~

Lantern Parade!!!!

On Friday, December 15, UP Anime Manga Enthusiasts will be joining the UP Lantern Parade in Diliman… IN COSTUME! I am borrowing Tomo’s costume, and there’s a possibility I can also borrow Tasuki’s costume. Watch for us! Better yet, if you have a costume, join us!

December 11, 2000 06:32 pm
Addendum…

Imagine, someone sent comments that my design for the AME website is great, except for the color! And criticized it for not having pics! >.< As if that were the reason the site was created in the first place. Naaasar ako… pinaghirapan ko yun, sobrang striking nga nung lay-out, tapos yun pa ang titirahin… I’ll get you for that, whoever you are. NYAHAHAHAHAHA! I am FinCom Head!

December 13, 2000 11:53 am
Just online for now, researching on Malaysian and Singaporean political parties as a group project for Political Science 178. The pages are all in Bahasa Malaysian!!! @o@ Orororororo…

December 13, 2000 12:38 pm
Clean-up.

I just did my first archival of this Pita! Ah, it just feels so good to know that I can code HTML all by myself. ^.^~ Anyway, I can’t find info on the Singaporean political parties, except for the People’s Action Party, the majority party in Singapore.

[Activating “Conspiracy” mode]
Could it be that the opposition parties have been silenced, their voices not heard on the Internet because of some sort of censorship? @.@
[End “Conspiracy” mode]

Ehehehehe…

I’m getting confused.

Last Friday was the UP Diliman Lantern Parade. My organization, UP AME, participated in it by dressing up in anime costumes! I had no idea it was so hard to wear Tomo’s costume (Tomo from Fushigi Yuugi). The thing is, it wasn’t my costume–it was my friend Battlechaser’s. Hehehe. I also dressed Rinoa Heartilly and Squall Leonhart with stuff from my closet, so you can imagine my laundry load come Monday.

Many special thanks to the other cosplayers who arrived and paraded with us! ^.^~ Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!

December 19, 2000 09:39 am
Costumes again…

Okay, I’m already making plans for another cosplay event. ^.^~ I don’t know whether to go as myself (Takani Megumi), or Tenjou Utena. I mean, I can pull both characters off equally well… but Utena’s costume will be easier and cheaper. I’m just confused. Maybe I can make my mind up in a few months or so, when the cosplay event will be held.

December 19, 2000 10:12 am
Wai!

Ami-chanWami-chan! You guys _do_ have blogs! I’m so happy… Now I can link to you guys! Ohohohohoho!

December 20, 2000 09:24 am
Ohohohohohoho!

I never realized I had taken on the Megumi personality so much that people are saying I should cosplay her. Wow! Now to figure out what to do with my shoulder-length hair when Megumi’s is waist-length. ^o^~

December 21, 2000 11:16 am
Doumo Ami-chan and Wami-chan for adding links to this here blog… ^_^

On another note, Christmas is approaching fast! Oh dear, and school break is about to end… @o@

December 22, 2000 01:16 pm
Finally, I post something more anime-related.

I’m currently undergoing anime drought. There’s nothing I want to watch on TV! *sniffle* Sadly, I’ve never been able to complete Fushigi Yuugi, not even during its [less than stellar dub] run on AXN. Ah, well…

I _did_ get a nice Rurouni Kenshin manga for Christmas from Fed, though… Megumi’s plastered all over it, and that kinda makes me happy.

I heard news that a second set of OVAs are being made for RK, dealing with the Jinchuu Arc. Wai! I sincerely hope it’s true. I haven’t gotten my hands on the second tankoubon set dealing with that. Heaven knows I’m struggling to complete the first few tankoubon of RK… @o@

Song currently playing? “Natsu no E ’98 Summer Version”, but the song most currently in mind is, oddly, “Duvet”. It’s strange for me to have an English song running in my head, as I’ve been listening to [largely] Japanese songs, particularly from anime. ^.^~ Yesterday I tried listening to my old Mariah Carey tapes. Bzzt. I don’t like it that much any more. Strange how my musical tastes have changed… and all because of anime. No wonder my parents are worried about me. Hehehe.

December 22, 2000 02:29 pm

Dyaraaaaaaaaan!!!! [with matching trumpets]

I’ve redesigned for Christmas! (Darn, after I posted a long one about anime, too!) I just hope the pic comes out right. Megumi as SANO’S Little Helper. Ohohoho! [That was Megumi’s version of Santa’s “Ho-ho-ho!”]

Merry Christmas to all!!!

December 23, 2000 08:46 am
If you want to see a long-ish rant about my high school friends, go to my Noelle pita.

On another note, Kuwami, I really loved the Hoonie lay-out better, although I have no idea who these Korean bishies of yours are. Oh yeah… if I were to fall for something about Hoonie, it’d be his fantabulous hair. ^.^~ Of course he’s yours.

Anyway I have Tasuki to keep me warm. OHOHOHOHOHOHO! (Just kidding… I’ll stick to Sanosuke)

December 23, 2000 07:54 pm
Stuffed toy! Wai!

I got a Dear Daniel doll from McDonalds. In case you don’t know, Dear Daniel is the male counterpart of Hello Kitty.

He was dressed in a light blue gi, white hakama with black pinstripes, and a dark blue haori. He reminds me so much of Kenshin when he was still Battousai! ^.^~

So, I decided to name him…
[drum roll]

KITTYkiri Battousai.

[pause]

OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!

December 24, 2000 08:47 am
Rip-off.

I was the first one to create an anime ring tone website… >.< I set it up as a sort of birthday present to myself.

And now some people caught on to my idea and set up their own web pages, promoting themselves as “the home of anime ring tones”. BAKA YAROU! It was my idea. At least you could link to me. Never mind that you set up the so-called “Tonelink” to bring together the anime ring tone websites that sprouted up. The point is, I was here first. Give me some credit.

And if you say you were first, I have proof on the POML that I launched my site first. You did yours in October. I announced my site in July.

Argh. I just needed to let off some steam.

December 25, 2000 10:28 am
I don’t want to start Christmas Day with a rant on the top of the page, so I’m posting this; it’s an email message I sent to one of the numerous (@o@) mailing lists I’m on.

^_^ I had such a hard time downloading messages today! That’s why I’m writing this at 3:54 am this Christmas morning with nary a wink in between dinner and midnight. @o@

Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone! It’s the commemoration of the birth of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I hope we can all keep this in mind as we attend various other Christmas parties this week, or else all the festivities are in vain and are empty of value. ^_^

To those who are feeling down this Christmas, WHY?!? It really dampens my spirits to know that some people out there are… well… ^^” I’m on several other mailing lists where people are also wailing about their December depression and stuff, and it just doesn’t make sense to me. If you believe in the Christmas story, this isn’t the time when we should be thinking about our own petty problems. We’re supposed to be celebrating the birth of the Person who died for us. When I think of the enormity of what He did (taking my sin onto His shoulders), it just doesn’t make sense for me to mope about my personal problems.

Well, that turned out longer than I thought. *peace sign* Da, I should place a disclaimer. If you disagree with me, you’re under no obligation to reply, or whatever. It’s solely my opinion. These are just my holiday thoughts.

Oyasumi!

December 26, 2000
If you want to read something funny about President Erap Estrada, go to my Noelle pita. ^_^

On a more anime note, I sent an inquiry to the anime seamstress about the Utena costume. I’m getting ready for whatever cosplay comes my way! And with my Christmas money (thank God for relatives), I can basically cover all my costs!

December 27, 2000
