I moved this weekend, and thus far I have lost my artbooks. 8D;;
I want to free them from their cardboard prisons, but there are so many boxes, I do not even know where to look for them. ;_;

I've noticed a few cases where I notice names like Cirno (チルノ) and Kyuubey/Kyuubei (キュゥべえ), and I noticed that they're supposed to be something different.

For example, if it were in my power, I would have romanized the latter name as something along the line of "Cubay", which is more...English-sounding (I so need to phrase that better so people won't accuse me of wanting to destroy any trace of Japanese language and culture in anime), and moreover, better reflects what it's short for.

On the other hand, I predict that I'd get backlash for being "unfaithful", especially if this was for something more official, even though "Kyuubey/Kyuubei", in a way, is/are not-so-official as far as I know. Heck, the way I see it, until there are English-language PMMM material, the only "spelling" of his name would be キュゥべえ

So what do you think about the idea of backlash for proposing romanizations that simply differ from what is more commonly used?

This is definitely not the right thread for this topic. :T
Please try to use the proper place next time.

And uh, we use common romanizations because our site is designed for normal people to use it. There's no call to conform to random "shuu naming" just to find pictures of a character.

Well I was going to post this in a separate thread, then I stumbled upon a post saying this is the thread for daily musings.

BTW, it's not Shuu's fault. It's fandoms in general.

Ah, well, it was worded more like a site change.
Daily musings are fine, if you can tell that it is one. XD

*rips paper and growls like a beast*
3 days ago I installed 'Harry Potter 3' and played it the whole day, until I reached this one point in the game, where the game crashed. ._.
So I was like 'mkay, enough for now, i'll just browse a bit and maybe just start the game again later' when i noticed I am actually disconnected from the internet O_o
So i tried re-connecting, but it was of no use. After a good amount of tries I gave up and tried restarting my laptop. I GOT A BSOD!!! djfhsdfjksjd
Fine! Keeping my cool! Things like these happen! No biggy! Nothing was lost after all, I mean I did save everything before restarting. Cool. Restarted. Trying to connect to the internet. No. No internet. I am obviously unworthy to connect! >:c
So in my rage I just started the HP game again and finished it in a few more hours. Then I watched everything I had downloaded. Read all the manga I had laying around. Re-read the SkyDoll specials for the umpteenth time... And then I decided I will install new windows. Maybe that will fix my issue.

In total my laptop got reinstalled 4 times with 2 different versions of Windows7..
Nothing worked and I had to call the internet company in the end. Turns out I have a driver missing or something >A<
Stupid machinery!

Mama called today, telling me to think of a good name for a female cat.
owo Well, none of my suggestions got accepted, due to my dad being a meanieface, but i don't care! I wanted a new pet for so long, so I'm happy~ It's kinda sad I won't see her that often, since I live in the capital now, away from my parents and I hardly ever go visit them... like... once every 2 weeks if I'm lucky~
but still... a new kitty! ; w ; how great is that~
Mom decided we will call her Angel. And they should go pick her up by the end of the week! ^^
my cousin sent me a few pics, taken with a phone, so the quality is poor, but I wanna show you my little princess:

isn't she the cutest ever?! ;w;
I can't wait to snuggle her~!!

Incredible miracles occurs! My day Was kinda crap, or well it Would have been intill I per chance or maybe just out of luck notice that the formerly-now-officialy Dead Fuwari isn't actually Literary Dead in some corner of the big but althought slightly small world. Hurray! My day got officially better. That and I need a gym card. Since I said that in a public forum now it Has to happen. orz

Crazy as per usual // Zachie!

ps. Holy crap this account is un-edited, havn't Touched it since I RP'd here! Holy ****

pps. EVE online FTW.
I carry a soul wavering from the flood of emotions. I carry a past bitter with hatred and sorrow. I carry a lifestyle that prays for happyness and I carry a heart shining golden. May all who read this have a blessed future.

Yeah she is alive xD and rare Zach popping out of nowhere. But I guess that if you are playing EVE online, you have no life.

Lucky Rockrabbit, I can't have furball pet >.<

Since I can't sleep, might as well post here. ( my brain is thinking of how I can improve my coloring >.< )

Life is pretty busy, but lately been good. I have a number of school project, ranging from interesting to hardcore:

interesting: integrating software voice control
in-between: computing coordinate of a graph in 2D/3D in C
hardcore: OS kernel in assembly language 8086

Only problem is that it's time eating (and more project are coming ), and that I'm tired by the end of the day. So sometimes I take a nap at 9pm and wake up a few hours latter just to kill my sleep schedule like today. Well, I guess I could couple the fact that I'm dissatisfied of my afternoon/night for some reason I don't really know. Might as well obey my brain and draw/color. There is still some way until I reach 1000 hours of practice ( which should give a decent level ), but I'm giving myself 3 years to get at the level I wish so I have time. In the same vain, I think that my next goal will be learning Japanese before I'm 30 years old.

So it seems I'm getting better after the nerve wrecking 2010 and bad start of the year. One thing which has radically changed is that I have been a lot less talkative on the Internet, and I'm not sure if it's a good thing. Less and less people on my MSN, and my Skype is always empty ( I don't use it much though lol ); maybe I should remedy to this.

Ah, how I love humans and their stupidity! ^^
There is this forum I'm registered, that I used to be a part of the staff; After a few months of absence I went back and saw the whole place turned upside down and ofc wrote a feedback thread, hoping to get the old forum back - the one that actually was good and made me want to visit the place.
Now the admin is trying to explain to me how stupid I am and how pointless my thread is.
Thank you, person! 0w0

And you wonder why everyone is leaving the place! =w=

My day: six-mile, hourlong bike ride (So, a nonboring day). Face hurts. Potentially sunburned.
My upcoming week: art class trip to the Kohler Art Museum, health finals, algebra finals, science project due, five pieces for art show due. I am going to pull this off....how, exactly? :?:
Graduating a week from today! Incoming freshman, orz.
Hoping for graduation money to buy a set of 120 Prismacolor colored pencils....oh how I love Prismacolors~

Been printing fanfic at school so as not to use up the printer ink at home~ the school librarian has a bounty on my head. :P
Whatever lies beyond this morning is a little later on
Regardless of warnings, the future doesn't scare me at all

I just totally went ninja on a mosquito!
He never knew what hit him (or squished him, I caught him between my index & middle fingers in my sleep)
I'm beginning to worry I might be too dangerous to have around.

I am going back to bed now, it's almost 6am and I still need to finish that weird dream that I am having.
I remember only a very small part of it - something about me riding a bus and getting off on the wrong bus stop, then something about ghosts and then I was explaining to my mother about how scared I got....and she tried to push me in front of a train o_o
i am going now...

Well, it is officially happening right now. We have to be out of our house by July 3rd. We held on to it for as long as we could. So, no more shuu for me for awhile, we have to pack up our entire house in a month and find a place to live. Wish us luck! Bye everyone, I don't know when I'll be back, but I'll try to come to shuu whenever I can. Sayonara!

I have been studying for the last 8 hours... I start my exams in 2 weeks :(

Now it's 9 in the morning here and I'm hungry, but there are no supermarkets open until 10 AM, so I'm wasting my time around the interwebz
