[livejournal.com profile] occultatio and I just finished watching it today. As you may or may not know, it ends in a cliffhanger - and there's no sign that there will ever be anything made to explain what's up with the ending.

So I've decided to make my own predictions/decisions about what's going on, based on the fact that this is the end of the show. Needless to say, here be spoilers: )

Okay, enough of that. I have this exam tomorrow I should be thinking about...

Huh.

Apparently Baccano! is available on Hulu.

EDIT: Wait let me rephrase. Baccano! is being advertised on the main page of Hulu.

In an episode of Twin Peaks the other day, the camera panned over a chest x-ray. I was amused to realize it was backwards. (Well, that or Ronette Polaski had situs inversus, which is possible if unlikely).

Holy shit! After less than four weeks of working on this project, I already have solid data for it. I basically just got further on this project than I did on my thesis. This is crazy.

Bitch

It is ridiculous and yet entirely appropriate that, in Ranma, one of the few consistencies and the only way the characters progress are their special martial arts moves.

HOUSE

Holy shit we have a HOUSE. OMG there is FURNITURE. The furniture even looks NICE.

Also we bought a dining room set for $30. Thank you, craigslist.

We officially closed on our house yesterday, and so in the evening we started moving things in. We, uh, didn't get very far (having no furniture didn't help). But we're not really living there until the end of this month, so that's okay.

It was as nice as I remembered, except the basement, which isn't very nice (although it was better than I remembered, since all the boxes that had been in there were moved out). Fortunately, we probably won't need the basement for much besides laundry for a long time, since from the top two floors alone we've at least quadrupled our living space. By the time we might actually want to use the basement for something, we'll probably be able to afford to fix it up a little.

What was really awesome, though, was getting another chance to check out the neighborhood. We had dinner with my parents at the nice restaurant two blocks down the street, which turned out not to be super-expensive, although still more than we can regularly afford now, and delicious. The small grocery store half a block away had more than I remembered it having, including some paper goods which we desperately needed. We saw signs for a "tea shop" in the same complex that the restaurant was in, although I didn't see the shop itself. There's also a cafe/bakery with wifi about a block away.

And the most exciting discovery of the night was a small, locally-owned bookstore about two blocks away. With a special ordering service and a frequent-buyer plan. Which sells Tezuka*. (Also, it turns out the woman who was working there is one of our neighbors.) This store is in addition to the comics/game store about a 10 minute drive away.

...Yeah, I think we're going to enjoy living here :D.

*They in fact had volume 5 of Black Jack, making us realize we were a bit behind on it, so Matt purchased it and also ordered vol. 4. I also saw MW.

50° and cloudy? Fuck you, Boston, I'm moving to Minneapolis.

It was pretty awesome. Kinda sad that a lot of people missed Where I Come From, since it was the only thing I was really featured in and it was REALLY FUCKING GOOD. Also, the audience was totally unresponsive at the end, as I could tell during the concert and listening to the recording later. Sigh.

Oh wow.

If Norm Coleman ever goes the hell away and just lets Franken take the seat he's won, the Dems will, in fact, reach 60 in the Senate. Wow.

We just lost power there for about an hour. Very strange.

Also I am wearing summer clothes because the weather is fucking gorgeous!

Wow

I have a high school reunion in the fall. That's very bizarre. Also I'll actually be in town, which is a first for my high school's events.

Gah!

It's discomfiting when I'm idly pondering something and then, utterly by accident, the same thoughts are shoved on me by what I'm reading.

About twenty minutes ago, it started smelling really bad in our apartment. Like something (trash-something) was burning. Freaking out, I open the door to our fire escape and look down. Sure enough, there's a pile of embers in the dark on the fire escape of the apartment below us.

So, calmly, I go downstairs and knock on the door. When they answer, I ask if they might know anything about a gross, burning smell in our kitchen. Their response? "Oh, that happened to us last week, it means your sink is going to flood."

Um. No. A flooding sink does not smell like burning. A flooding sink does not coincide with a burning pile of something on your fire escape.

Anyone know if burning trash is illegal in Massachusetts?
