No kitty for us after all. It's a perfectly understandable reason (she decided that the grief she was getting from her dad about his allergies was better than how she'd feel if she took the cat away from her daughter) So we're going to try the shelter again this weekend. This getting a cat process would be so much easier if I could in good conscience go through a pet store. :p

It's so weird to not be panicking. Animaritime is happening THIS WEEKEND. But other than the fanfic contest (which I just submitted my scores for... PAIN), there's nothing I can do. Since they turned down my offer to run panels via webcam. :p

I just started taking a quarter course, and until it's over, coursework is going to EAT ME. There's a lot of reading for it. It's really INTERESTING reading (right now we're reading a book that is considered among the most influential works of the 20th century), but there's a lot of it, so in between that, my other class (midterm Monday, lucky me), marking and that RESEARCH thing, I'm a busy little Ewok. :p

Also, I am 0 for 4 on rolling up the rim. :p

So, yesterday I had to change because I realized I was dressed RIDICULOUSLY inappropriately. I put on my Animaritime staff shirt and a few minutes later remembered that it was Saint Patrick's Day. Needless to say I changed out of the ORANGE and into something green. Of all the colours, I was wearing ORANGE. :p Other than that all I did about the fact that it was Saint Patrick's Day was put together an Irish Rovers playlist, because it wouldn't be Saint Patrick's Day otherwise. :p

We had our crazy post-convention staff meeting on Saturday, which was an adventure. They gave awards to all the graduating staffers.

What does it say that an anime convention gave me the "Ultimate Geek" award? :p

Also, my foreign language showtune addiction continues. I mean, how could I resist Fiddler on the Roof in YIDDISH? (Next I clearly need to get Les Mis in French. Which I would, y'know, actually UNDERSTAND. :p)
yubsie: (Default)
This weekend is the MIDW. Depending on who you ask, that's either the Maritime Inorganic Discussion Weekend or the Maritime Inorganic Drinking Weekend. What's the most important chemical in chemistry? Apparently ethanol. :p I'm rather used to that by now though. I slept through the plenary lecture today, but I made it to all the student presentations and the poster session/mixer. I have to miss the other plenary lecture tomorrow for karate, too. :p

Oh, and because I have NO SHAME...

Here is a video of me dancing around to "Junk Boy" at the beginning of the anime and geek music panel at Animaritime.

So yeah, that convention report! It went SO amazingly well.

Cut because this thing is LONG )
yubsie: (Default)
Okay, all packed. Leaving for the convention in about fifteen minutes. I sure hope I have everything. :p

(I am, incidentally, amused that some of you are very confident in my heel wearing abilities :p)

Now sing it with me!

Who needs sleep?
You're never gonna get it!
Who needs sleep?
Tell me what is that for!

(I'm quite excited, but will be glad when we have everything fully set up and the convention is underway. :p)
yubsie: (Default)
WHERE IS MY GREY'S! WHY IS CTV SHOWING THE STUPID AMERICAN IDOL RESULTS SHOW? WHERE IS MY GREY'S? I NEED THAT CONCLUSION!

(Apparently we can see it in an hour, but... WHY IS IT NOT ON WHEN IT'S ALWAYS ON? WHEN I HAVE MY SOCIAL SCHEDULE PLANNED AROUND?)

How can they do this to me when there's the resolution to a three part arc on tonight?

Also, the convention is tomorrow. ACK. I've opted for the River dress because I've never worn it at Animaritime before and I want to get some better pictures. Today was crazy con prep day. Of course, I'm not trusted to fold, so I was a runner. Bill and I made a run to Moncton to drop some stuff off at the convention centre. We were SUPPOSED to get some colour copies of badges made, but the price was ridiculous so we bought ink for his printer instead.

Of course, the convention means that I won't be online the whole weekend, lacking a computer at the hotel and all. I won't go so far as to say this post is the last you'll hear from me, since I'm sure I'll make a post-Grey's post. :p

[Poll #933279]
yubsie: (Default)
Okay, question for everyone...

What are some major points of etiquette within fandom that newbies often don't know about? Those little things that drive the olbies CRAZY that you'd really like to tell the newbies about. Or even those things that drive other newbies crazy. :p

In other words, I have an hour long panel on fandom etiquette to fill up, so I need a bit more than "Well, don't act like an idiot" :p

(Incidently, if anyone could remember what the old JC acronym N.E.W.B.I.E. stood for... :p)

EDIT: Heh, it was Non-Enlightened Weirdo, Babbling, Irritates Everyone :p
yubsie: (Default)
Wow, surprisingly tired from karate today. We did a blindfolded exercise, which is ALWAYS an adventure. And by adventure, I mean I flail a lot. :p And apparently body check. :p I don't do well blindfolded, especially since I have filtering issues so I don't hear the people moving over the other group giggling. (Apparently, their blindfolded person tried to use one of the attackers as a shield. :p)

I was on the go most of the day, but other than karate, it was running from one school thing to the next. The withdrawal deadline is coming up, so the profs are all dumping work on us so we have 20% of our mark by then.

I love my little sister SO MUCH. First I was trying to find Zoe/Wash songs because it's "Marrieds" month at [livejournal.com profile] fst, and she came up with "Running Scared" by Roy Orbison for the scene with Niska.

Speaking of which, I don't suppose I have any Roy Orbison fans on my flist? She came up with the song, but she didn't HAVE it. :p

The other reason I love her is that I was complaining that the tricky thing about writing Firefly fic is that they canonically burst out in a foreign language, so I have [insert Chinese here] at one point in my ficathon fic. So she pulled out her dictionary and came up with a rough translation of "Shiny!" without me actually asking her to do any such thing. :p

The fic is almost ready to go to Tessie for beta-ing. Which is good, considering the loomingness of the deadline and all. :p

I just accidentally typed my current music in the Location field. Which is funny considering the song title. :p

Oh, and Kim, was there anything in particular you wanted emphasized at the Fandom Etiquette panel?
yubsie: (Default)
Today started out pretty fun with crazy pinata making day. (The pinata smashing is always a highly popular event at the convention) So messy! So inner child!

After that, I went to the Chinese food place with Ryan and a couple of his roommates and we jabbered about silly things like fanfiction.

Then we headed back for the staff meeting and assorted flailing. Because the convention is thirteen days away.

This was followed by SCARY. Lindsay and Bill each thought the other was bringing the anime today, so all we had were some movies that Patricia brought in. The first was Death Trance that had some cool fight scenes and not much plot. We followed it with the most frightening thing I have ever seen. This thing competed with the STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL. It had, uh, manga and cosplay and rocks and lots of sex. Which was intercut with frightening rock smashing and ink dipping as a metaphor. SO SCARY! MAKES NO SENSE! DO NOT WANT!

Patricia is now banned from bringing things in. :p

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering...

Star Wars the Musical. :p
yubsie: (Default)
OMG GOblins, a webcomic about D&D goblins should not make me wibble this much! And yet... *WIBBLE*

Looooong day of rehersals today. It was the first rehersal with the pit, which is ALWAYS an adventure. :p We dealt with costumes, which was pretty painless for me. Unlike poor Brian and his hilarious outfit for the Emerald City. :p

I sent my grad school list off to Steve last night, and he had suggestions sitting in my inbox by this morning.

There was more crazy mad planning at the anime meeting last night. For some reason, people think I should be involved with the anime/geek music panel. Can't think WHY. :p We watched Noir, which enjoys flashing back to earlier in the episode. Despite all the flashbacks, we're still not sure what's going on. Then we made everyone watch the crack on every drug known to man and some that AREN'T which is Excel Saga. We finished up with BLood: THe Last Vampire. That one was completely and utterly NOT my thing, so I started my Zoe/Wash ficathon fic. I think I finally figured out what I'm going to do!

I got back and found out that the zip for my Firefly soundtrack over at [livejournal.com profile] fst was already dead. I posted the thing and people managed to kill FOUR GIGS of YSI bandwidth in a matter of HOURS. I guess my strange song calls have gone over well. AMusingly, I had MULTIPLE people uploading better versions of "Married" for me, which makes me ridiculously happy because that song is ADORABLE. :p (And utterly ZOe/Wash :p)

Oh and people? THE CON IS IN MONCTON! STOP EMAILING ME TO ASK!

*flail*

So, the LARPers? Totally my favourite volunteers right now. They RESPOND! And then they send follow up emails to make sure I got their giant response of DOOM.

[livejournal.com profile] seryan, is there any chance I can get you to poke the modelly types about actually answering one of my emails? :p

We've hit a hundred pre-reg for the con. *flail* That's a lot of people and there will be more at the door and pre-reg isn't closed yet and how did this convention get so BIG and why is it less than two months away? *more flailing*

Speaking of flailing... how is the show less than two WEEKS away? *flail* I'm starting to get the hang of the Munchkin dances at least. Tonight's rehearsal should be interesting, since I suspect there will be some re-choreographing going on. EVERY year, there's a number where the score is completely different from the CD. EVERY year, it's one of the big full chorus song and dance numbers. THis year is no exception, with the music for the dance break in "Merry Old Land of Oz" being completely different from what we thought. *flail*

And in slightly less pressing flailing... Grey's ANatomy! *flail* Izzie listened to us, but we're hoping that she'll get off okay because the entire cast was telling her to do the same thing. And George's dad! *flail*

ANd of course, there's also that thesis and grad school thing looming. *UBER FLAIL OF DOOM*

In non flailing news, I wrote all my track notes for my Firefly FST last night, so I should be posting it up soon. There was a lot of not apologizing involved, because I'm NOT sorry for my cracktastic song choices. :p
yubsie: (Default)
I'm getting a sewing machine. [livejournal.com profile] ramenparty just got a new one, so she's selling me her old one. Which means no more hand sewing entire costumes! This makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy. :p

We put up our Geekmas tree yesterday. :p We call it that because it's decorated with [livejournal.com profile] thecleric007's RP characters, the Endless and this year we added some cute Final Fantasy stuff. And of course, it's topped with Yuto. :p There's really no word for this thing except Geekmas tree. This year we have the fun of informing Elphaba that it is NOT in fact a toy. :p

We also watched Elizabeth, which was a pretty cool movie. ANd of course, I worked on my quantum paper, which I am DETERMINED to finish today after the spec party. :p (In this case an actual party, involving going out to brunch, as opposed to it being our silly term for getting the class together to do assignments ;p) I'd also like to get a good chunk of the spec paper done. Other home on Wednesday!

Apparently, my brother is now 5'8" and thus taller than my mother. Oh BOY is he going to be insufferable over the break. :p

Oh, and I must say that this whole Flan thing makes me feel a little better about all my Animaritime worries. At least I know that however many headaches we may have with the new venue and trying to get the room block filled and trying to get people to respond to emails and trying to get everything together, the convention will actually HAPPEN. :p Good to know that there are conventions that have been worse. :p
yubsie: (Default)
So, I just got an email saying that an item on my pretty shinies order is out of stock and has been cancelled from my order. Not going to ship later than the rest, just outright CANCELLED. Naturally, the item is volume four of Runaways. They're still shipping me volumes five and six, but no volume four for me. Because volumes five and six do me SO much good without the FIRST volume in that arc. :p

I am currently on a mad quest for "Married" from Cabaret. Because it's SUCH an HMS Tessie Deadship song. :p (Yes, I am drawing closer and closer to making a Firefly FST :p) Sammy sent me a bunch of songs from the show, but that wasn't one of them.

Sent out a bunch of Animaritime related emails and now I'm working on my SPec presentation. The plans for this weekend are basically that presentation and getting my grad school list down to five people so I can email a shortlist off to Steve. Because I really should figure out what I'm doing next September. :p

EDIT: Greek mythology meme from Mi!




Orpheus

33% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 55% Emotiveness, 100% Perceptiveness

You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.



When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.



You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.



Famous people like you: Hemingway, Shakespeare, Mr. Rogers, Melville, Nick Tosches

Stay clear of: Icarus, Hermes, Atlas

We're making slow progress on the spec labs of doom. We keep having sessions to chip away at the questions, but ACK the end of semester is looming. We shall overcome though!

Stupid people on the ANimaritime forum posting about how there are less than a hundred days left until the convention. Don't remind us! It makes us panic! :p Actually, stupid people on the Animaritime forums in general. :p

We had live action night at anime on Saturday, which was fun. We watched My Boss, My Hero which is CRACKTASTICALLY awesome. It's about a Yakuza guy who, in order to prove that he isn't too stupid to become the boss, has to graduate from high school. Needless to say, crack ensues. No wonder the poor guy is confused in his math class though. We're convinced they were making that stuff up because a bunch of people who have taken math at a university level SHOULD be able to understand what's being said in a high school math class. Still, hilariously awesome.

After that, we watched Moonchild. It had Gackt and vampires and a lot of guns. Yeah, that's about all I got out of it. I appreciated the pretty boys, but REALLY not my thing. It was really long too, I was starting to fall asleep by the end. On the plus side, I wrote the ENTIRE draft of my "My Parents Gave Me a STUPID NAME" support group crackfic. Crack is so much faster to write than other things. :p (Like the fic Tess and I finally finished the first scene of :p)

On Sunday, I discovered that if you wear a Mount A sweatshirt to church, random church ladies will ask how your schoolwork is going and offer to pray for your week of DOOM. Quite frankly, I probably need it. After church, I made serious progress on the dishes and managed to clean the disgusting microwave, which makes everything happier.

After my cleaning spree, it was off to quite possibly the most boring karate class ever. Basics weren't so bad, but then it was katta, which made it clear just how SHORT my current katta is. We did discover that parts of the bunkai are NOT particularly effective if you're significantly smaller than your attacker. Try as I might, I couldn't pull off the trip. I suppose the purse smack is still effective though. (No, purse smack isn't the OFFICIAL explanation of what's going on, but it's TOTALLY the best application.)

There was a one hour break in between karate and rehearsal, so I decided that the most effective use of my time would be going to the Cragg to work on my spec assignment. Which I am totally declaring done, incidently. :p Then we had Winkie practice. We learned the choreography for the reprise of "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead". I love this dance, it's so ridiculously easy. I NEVER get the dance at the first rehearsal, but this one was well within my capabilities. It's more than a little cheesy, but that just makes it fun to dance. We're liking this whole "not being enslaved to the WIcked Witch of the West anymore" thing. :p We also reworked our marching formation for the "oh ee yoh" song so that it now actually WORKS and looks really cool. :D

After that, I went home and did schoolwork. Just need to get through this week. I'll do it somehow. :p

Also, Chiron Beta Prime is the only Christmas song I am ready to hear right now. I've started Christmas shopping, but that doesn't change the fact that it's not really Christmassy until after finals are over. However, Chiron Beta Prime kinda fits that mood. "Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime. Where we're working in a mine. For our robot overlords. Did I say overlords? I mean protectors! Merry Chriiiiiiiiiiistmas, from Chiron Beta Prime!"

Manga night was fun last night. I read the first two volumes of the FMA manga, which were very shiny. I really need to see the rest of that anime, incidently. :p Animewise, we watched Sakura Wars, which is on some definite crack. Then we watched ANimation Runner Kuromi, which was BLOODY HILARIOUS! MUCH love for that. We watched FLCL, which I have seen before and didn't enjoy, so I focused intently on the manga. I eventually ran out of manga and started to read about quantum, because it made considerably more sense. We finished up with Angelic Layer, which is always fun.

Kate, unsurprisingly, has not yet materialized. Katikabe asked if we were sure she existed. I am, because I went to high school with her, but I'm not entirely convinced that she isn't dead and haunting a computer somewhere. :p

Oh, and someone remind me that I should know better than to read multiple fics labelled "BDM spoilers" in a row. I KNOW what that phrase means, why do I click the angst?

Animaritime icons:



Because pimping the con is very important. :p

Yep, disjointed "I have rehearsal soon" post ftw. :p
yubsie: (Default)
So lots of free food today. Mom was in town for a literacy fundraising breakfast, which she brought me to. Then she took us grocery shopping for heavy things and paid for it. We gots ice cream! :D Then it was time to change for the cosplay picnic. Since it was grey and dreary out, we had to do it inside. It was fun, though very loud and crazy. I'm thinking I should really get my hearing tested, because I shouldn't have found it that troubling to hear nearby people. I picked up a cute Al keychain for my purse, which was exciting. :p

Anime was an adventure today. After crazy con staff meeting due to not having held one in weeks thanks to Thanksgiving and the plague, we were to frazzled for anything but watching. We started off with Sin, which Katikabe summed up pretty neatly as "It's like they took an action movie and removed anything vaguely explanatory!" We were going to watch Sailor Moon LIve Action after that, but my CD was scratched. I'm so reburning it and bringing it to the next meeting though. The club MUST see it! Instead, we watched something we thought would be so bad it was funny. It wasn't. It was so bad it was traumatizing. Super Duper Sumos! OH GOD THE TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCES KILL ME NOW PLEASE! Though it gets points for Generic City. And the villains were pretty cool. We wanted them to win. Actually, the show would have been generally better if it just didn't have the protaganists. But OH GOD THE PAIN! We ended with a Yu Yu Hakusho movie. Unfortunately, it's set after the series turns to standard Shounen Jump fightcentric storyline stuff. And Botan spends most of the movie UNCONCIOUS. Which was bad for me, considering she's what I like about the series. :p

I have the shrug for my River costume finished though. And I finised reading Neil Burford's chapter of Metallocenes, so at least I was productive.
yubsie: (Default)
I made Sim Saffron yesterday. She's married to Durran Haymer and they have Heinrich the security programmer living with them. I'm trying to get her to have an affair with Heinrich, but he keeps catching her with Durran and getting mad. Sooner or later the fury will pass and she can split up with Durran. :p My sister has begged me to make a millionaire to marry River, so he's going to be Saffron's next husband. Then Mal, of course. Tee hee. :D

At the Animaritime meeting last night, all the heads of various things were explaining to the new staffer what we do. This frequently involved "Wait, you mean I'm in charge of THAT too? Good to know." because we all do FAR too much.

We tried to watch Sailor Moon Live Action, but we weren't in our usual room, so we didn't have the computer we snuck DivX onto before they locked us out of downloadability. :p So we watched Howl's Moving Castle, which was good, as can be expected from a Miyazaki film. We watched S-Cry-ed, which I suppose was good for its genre, but not really my thing. I appreciated it in a vague detached manner. :p Then we watched His and Her Circumstances, which I am QUITE taken with. Okay, OMGLOVE. :p

Backtracking to Friday, there was lots of watching then too. Vicki and I watched episode 15 of Digimon 02 because the subbers finally put it out. Was it filler? Yep. Was it fun anyway? Of course. I love that Digmon's attack is "BIG CRACK!", because that's clearly what the writers were TAKING by the end. :p Then we watched the first two episodes of Welcome to NHK, which was nifty. Then we watched some more Sailor Moon CLassic. They're rather spoilerific episode titles, incidently. Guess what happens in "Naru's Tears! Nephrite Dies for Love!". :p If you guessed "Nephrite is sent to the SPecial Hell"... :p And Kunzite/Zoicite? Wow, their subtext is rapidly becoming TEXT. :p Zoicite also continues to have the most RIDICULOUSLY feminine body language. :p We finally got to Makoto's introduction and the realization that the reason no one can find the Silver Crystal is that it's in seven pieces that need collecting before they can be redeemed for the next advancement in the plot. :p

After that, Sam and I watched some Firefly happy shininess. We finally got to finish "Safe", which we had started to watch before and had to go do something else. I love ickle!River so much, she was ADORABLE. We also watched "Our Mrs. Reynolds" which is just SO much fun. Especially since I get to be all "Just watch, all shall be explained" when Saffron is making people go "What?"

I finished reading my Firefly geek book, which was great geeky fun. Most of the essays were really interesting to read. There were a couple things that were just fun silliness instead of analysis, which is also enjoyable. There was, of course, the essay to fill the requirement that every essay book must have one that demonstrates that if you try hard enough ANYTHING can be the tool of teh eb0l patriarchy. Yes, even the work of Joss Whedon, apparently.

The only essay I really didn't like was one going on about how political correctness was making Firefly untrue to its Western origins by not having an element of chivalry. Not just because I disagree rather adamantly with the essay, but because it showed a lack of knowledge of canon. I don't just mean where the author was clearly missing the POINT of some scenes, which was annoying in and of itself, I mean getting hard FACTS wrong. It talks about Jayne's recruitment scene as being in "Serenity" instead of "Out of Gas". It refers to Zoe as Zoe WARREN. NOw, I'm not sure her last name was used before the movie, but it was NEVER Warren. Finally, they talk about how we don't know if there's a prohibition against violence in Book's religion, but we can assume. Umm... "Doesn't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing people?" "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzy on the subject of kneecaps." I know this person SAW "War Stories", because they complain about how Wash going on the job and thus saving Zoe from being kidnapped and tortured is shown as a petulant action instead of heroic. (Which is a whole other rant, which I may go into when I don't have to dash out to karate.)

I should note that these two essays are back to back... immediately after one about how if it came to a fight, the guys would totally lose to the women of Serenity. :p

Also, is it bad that my cracktastic Death/Death fic is, at 2785 words, the longest thing I've written in AGES? :p
yubsie: (Default)
So the only time that works for group meetings is 8:30 AM. The problem with this is that 8:30 AM is FREAKING EARLY. :p Especially when I don't actually have class until 11:30. :p

The Cragg is cold, incidently. :p

I've made an attempt at productivity with this annoying extra time though. I finished off my assignment for Inorganic, which wasn't difficult at all. I also did a bunch of hiragana practice and now my hand hurts. Hurts to hold a pencil, at any rate. Typing is fine. :p

I was going to start a reaction in the lab, but the balance room is still locked and I don't have the key. Maybe tomorrow, though we're supposed to work on our spec assignment.

We had our first G&G meeting last night, which was very exciting. THis should be a really fun show this year. :D (The Wizard of Oz, if I haven't mentioned it before. :D)

I really need to remember to put my CDs back in my backpack. The Cragg is fairly deserted in the morning, and the silence is more than a little CREEPY. :p

Wow, my "cold" mood doesn't actually look that cold. I guess they never froze the plushies. :p

Oh, and yarr maties! (I love the "Update Captain's Log" button! :p)

EDIT: Is it just me or are the ANimaritime forums on the UBER FRITZ?
yubsie: (Default)
I was googling ANimaritime because, well, I can. I came across a site about going to cons as cheaply as possible. They had an entry about Animaritime, with the following:

Free local entertainment - On the website for the city, one of the "things to do" is use the internet, for an hourly fee. I'm pretty sure you won't find much to do in this city.

Haha website, Sackville's not a city. :p

Slept nice and late yesterday. There are worst ways to crash. :p

Random Rent comment... I finally figured out how to sum out how adorable Collins and ANgel are. Most couples in musicals dance in their love song because it's a musical. With them, it feels like they're just randomly dancing in the street, and it's too cute for words.

Tess, stop shipping things, pwease. :p

And yes, this was because I was randomly watching the Angel/Collins scenes of the Broadway bootleg yesterday. :p

I read The Little Endless Storybook to Ryan yesterday. With voices. Can you tell I worked in a daycare? The ENdless require an interesting range of voices. Those of you who have heard my voice can understand how I might have a bit of a hard time sounding like white text on a black background. :p

Last night at anime, it was crazy busy business stuff. Well, it started with a pretties exchange as manga and Sandman and Prince of Tennis musical were passed around and everyone awwed the chibi!Endless. Then we did work. Lots of it. :p

There was much discussion of what the blazes we're going to DO with the convention next year. Our baby is all grown up now, but we don't know if we can afford the next size of clothing yet. :p I think we're finally starting to get our heads around the idea that it's not a little baby con anymore, it's getting near the status of medium convention. Though we will miss calling ourselves Ghettocon. :p

Then there was the new Hierarchy of DOOM. Lots of new positions, though I was good and only took on two new ones. :p We finally persuaded [livejournal.com profile] silver_sabre and [livejournal.com profile] nukichan to take over as con chairs. I mean, it was always going to happen, but we finally got them to officially agree. :p Better for them to take over THIS year when there's still [livejournal.com profile] ramenparty and Bill to help them out than next year when we all graduate. :p

We also had the much more simple CLUB exec elections. [livejournal.com profile] ramenparty didn't want to be president again, so now [livejournal.com profile] neekabe gets that fun job. That meant we needed a new vice-president, so I volunteered for that. "Election" is used in the loosest sense of the word here, and actually means "Come on guys, SOMEONE has to do it!"

Finally, we decided what new anime to buy. We decided to do things a bit differently this year and choose a certain number of titles from various genres rather than a total number from everything. This way we have a nice mix, even if most of us voted blind in the mecha genre. (I voted for Desert Punk because it was the one that didn't sound like the others :p) It amuses me that I was the one who pointed out that the unedited DVDs of Naruto aren't out yet. Which, while admittedly being so much WTF, should not need to be pointed out by the person who hasn't even SEEN Naruto, and is frankly scared of it. :p [livejournal.com profile] thecleric007, that Count of Monte Cristo anime and Twelve Kingdoms both made it in... kinda. They tied on the first, second and THIRD ballots. Final conclusion was "Well, we can probably get ONE more DVD into the budget. Besides, odds are at least four things we order will be out of stock." :p We also declared Invader Zim an honorary anime because enough people first saw it at Anime North and ordered it. :p

We did eventually watch something at this meeting. A little half hour thingy that was CREEPY AS HELL and then we all got to walk home in the dark. :p

Now to write my Analytical paper. :p
