Wow!! Leave DA for a couple days, and I have almost 4,000 messages waiting for me!!! GEEZ!!!
Ahh, I've been busybusybusy this weekend...and times before that...when did I last post an entry? I forgot.
First of all, HAPPY LATE VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! Hehheh I'm really late O_O .
Anywho, sorry about the increased lack of upload over the past...since whenever I last uploaded something. I'VE BEEN WORKING!! I HAVEN'T BEEN LAZY!!! I have an art dump I plan to do in about a week from now, and I'll get to upload eeeeeverything I got in one blow .
I have also now realized something. I think one of the few (yes there are a couple more...but not many) places I could ever empty out my entire bank account is the bookstore. Went there a few days ago with my mom (cuz I could) and took the oppurtunity to stalk the MANGA ISLE!!!! Seriously, look away for a second and I'd have already bee-lined for the back of that store. By the way, tip for anyone who reads this: Although it may be somewhat of common knowledge, if you're buying manga, READ A FEW PAGES OF IT IN THE STORE AND THEN PAN THROUGH A COUPLE MORE. SOMETHING THAT LOOKS FREAKING AMAZING ON THE COVER MAY HIDE A HORRIBLE BOOK. T_T
On the GOOD side though, I got my hands on books one and two of Blue Exorcist, AND I LOVE THEMMMM!!!! God I love Rin. I have to say, he's one of my all-time favorite anime guys. His character and personality are just really well done, and (too speak in art terms ) seems like much more of a '3-D' character, as opposed to a flat, '2-D' personality character. He for some reason just seems so much more believable than other anime characters I've run into. Congrats KAZUE KATO-SAN!!! <--The author.
Speaking more of comics and manga, I've revived my interest in a story comic I found WAAAAAAAY back before I made my account: It's called Lackadaisy, is accessable on this site, and is freaking amazing. Written and illustrated by the incredibly talented comes a comic about life in the middle of St. Louis, Missouri during 1920's America, and the home of the Prohibition Era. The best part? THE CHARACTERS ARE ALL CATS!!!!! And quite amusing ones at that. So, if you're looking for a quality comedy comic, START HERE. SERIOUSLY.

Make sure to check out her DA gallery too!!! Its amazing!!!!
On another note, last weekend I got a chance to go skiing with a friend of mine, and have an amusing tale to tell.
First off, I'm no pro. I haven't skiied in about three years, and THAT ws my first time ever. So, bravely armed with almost no knowledge on the subject whatsoever, an amusing array of overly-fluffy clothing, and boots that I swear are the shoe-equivalent of a straight-jacket (NO JOKE) I faced the slopes with the silly, naive belief that I might be able to accomplish something that day. And actually I did, but still XD. My day started as my being cast the most incompetent bunnyhill skiier there, and ended with me starring as the 'Snow Ninja Assassin' (still on the bunnyhill). Why assassin? I'll explain that now.
On my last run down the slope, and by this time I'm doing pretty well mind you, some distance ahead of me I spot a man talking with several other people, presumably fallen companions he was trying to help (in the middle of the slope) . On either side of this guy, there is WIIIIDE OPEN SPACE. Not being particularly skillful in turning, I find out very quickly I am unable to maneuver to either side, and am on a DIRECT COLLISION COURSE WITH THIS DUDE. By some internal force of natural instinct, I ended up crounching down and yelling "LOOK OUT!!!!"
And ended up plowing this guy riiiiight over. He FLIES back, bounces off my head (for lack of better word...AND IT HURT!) and rolls to the side, and we all burst out laughing like there's no tomorrow. I can't even imagine how ridiculous I must have looked--decked out in all my fluffy snow stuff, and stringy hair all in my face that better resembles the yeti than my own, stuck as an upside-down stinkbug cuz I can't get up easily. Oh well, we got a great laugh out of it, and I am now dubbed 'Snow Ninja Assassin' by my friend's dad, who asked my is this guy was my assassination target or something from the fact I just happened to hit HIM. I DIDN'T TARGET HIM!!! He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and got plowed by the ninja.
Well, I suppose that suffices as a worthy blabber-rant after a two-week absence (I checked my last entry date XDDDD) .
THANK YOU ALL MY STALKERS AND CO.!!!!
