happy discoveries

There is a Lush in Osaka – in a big,shiny,new shopping complex coveniently next to the station. I had a blissfully ‘happy’ bubble bath today.
And I can now say: I’m going to China NEXT WEEK!!!! Now that’s exciting!

Newfound geekiness

Now that I’m away from all my beloved geeky friends, I find I am becoming more geeky than ever before (not hard, really) I actually have a pc with windows 98 – though admittedly, it still throws me when ppl comment how old it is! To me it’s still a new toy – albeit somewhat short on colour. I am starting to research what laptop I want to buy when I visit tokyo next year, as well as what sort of digital camera. And I am getting quite addicted to the net, especially loving following what’s happening back home for friends.
And have inadvertantly hooked up with a couple of gamers and magic players, and there are plans for a campaign. And this excites me. One of them is even going to give me cd copy of the latest ed d&d manuals. Am I discovering hitherto undiscovered ponds of geekiness in myself, or am I just pining for my friends so much that I am replicating their attributes in me? I’m guessing it’s the first reason. Maybe it’s more that I have the time and headspace here to delve into these areas which have always been placed on the backburner in my ‘real’ life. hmmm. while I’m on a geekiness thing, must learn to cut entries so people can choose to read further or not. Sorry I don’t know how yet.

d&d manuals

Gosh!
Well I hope that you are pining for us back here too!

You really haven’t had a lot of time dedicate towards developing the “Geek-within”. Even when there was a computer in the house that you were living in the guys would use it all the time and you were working a studyiing etc. It really does not leave a lot of time for other stuff.

Enjoy the extra bit of freedom.
Hugs

Re: d&d manuals

Oh yeah, I’m pining for you guys too….half wish I was going with Shanta to Melb…but I have visits to look forward to next year, NigelW and Kitling sometime in Spring, and Em and Ivan in summer. Bounce! In the meantime, I’m here, in front of puter, nurturing geekiness. Much fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

Great, Hope that I can get over there at some point too.

Just realised this has time travelled! From 2003 I think when I didn’t know you that well, funny old internet ๐Ÿ™‚

AAAGGGHHHH – The sacrilege

I just found out tonight that the reason Japan won’t be releasing LOTR until next year is that they will be busy censoring it to suit Japanese audiences. I sincerely hope this is a foul rumour with no substance, but I have seen how viciously movies can be butchered here…anything that may not make sense to the audience here(or is perhaps too difficult to translate, or maybe even not 150% vital to the storyline) is cut. Of course, I will not really know until I can watch a non-Japanese release LOTR..like that’ll be happening soon.
Speaking of which, is there a group thingy going to LOTR and are tickets already organised. If not, room for one more? (no, not me…but mad movie buff Shanta)

lirionNovember 30, 2003 - 4:21 pm

Heya gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚

I assume you mean the third LotR movie, RotK, yes?

Unfortunately unable to assist with that until after irs released here on vid/dvd ๐Ÿ™

*hugs*

The start of something new…

Hello all….Kitling has worked her magic and here I am, actually posting, rather than just commenting. Not sure yet how much I will post, not entirely keen on all and sundry being able to read my thoughts, but I really like the little emotion icons! I have ummed and aahed about having an lj, mainly because a lot of friends won’t be able to access it and I’m still getting around to keeping my non-mailing list friends in the loop as to what’s happening for me. But I have really enjoyed being able to read about the everyday stuff of friends back home, the sort of stuff that doesn’t seem important enough to write a letter about but is really nice to hear anyway. And yesterday I started a post to my mailing list, but it didn’t really seem the sort of thing to clutter ppl’s inboxes with, so finally decided to use my lj account for the random stuff that wouldn’t make it to my mailing list anyway.
So, hi to all, and thank-you to those who already have added me as a friend. I feel loved… *big warm fuzzies all round*

Big Hugs in Return

I must admit to being very bad in replying to emails and stuff but that does not mean that I don’t love getting them. It is great to hear what you are up to and all the adventures you are having. Things going well here.
Missing you heaps.

daisynerdDecember 1, 2003 - 2:35 am

I also was tentative, but am currently muchly enjoying the new toy, I mean serious way of communicating… Really hope the LOTR rumour is untrue and you get the whole deal. Much love.
