that‘s my starting issue 016

Sign up for Twitter to follow Guy Kawasaki (@GuyKawasaki), author of Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions; former chief evangelist of Apple; and co-founder of Alltop. For political reasons, like his support for Planned Parenthood, or what can be taken as support in this tweet, I no longer follow him.

Before I stopped, however, the creative process visualized - Holy Kaw!Rarity stands on super-table at the Roving Imp

I continued to read these online comics (i.e., SUBNORMALITY!), through which a friend once told me, “Hey, c’mon, your life isn’t so bad,” and I later saw that I may not be so mature.

Being recently unfriended, I decided to ask my friends why in person, instead of wallowing and wondering why: to focus on having friends and to directly address concerns with my friends are new personal goals for me. One friend despises the Facebook Timeline, so he is going to give up Facebook. At the request of his employer, other friend is also giving up Facebook.

that‘s my starting issue 015

Friends often help me to remove myself from some of my more depressive moments. Last night at the home of Denton, the maximum number of players for Scrabble (i.e., four) gathered around the circular table, and I wallowed in my own self-induced dolor, until someone tried ‘hilty’ as a valid word. I recalled J-List side blog: Mixing English and Japanese Grammar, and, after some concentration, more importantly the character Celty from the following anime, which I have watched on the Adult Swim.
DURARARA!! USA | Official site
“‘Durarara!!’  the animated TV series is based on the hit novel ‘Durarara!!’  by RYOHGO NARITA (‘Baccano!’), a new breed author. This series has shocked readers and the light-novel industry with its unique characters and out-of-this-world story”

Have Suzumiya Haruhi, will travel 003

Blogger entreats me to review comments made to my blog, and mizhenka shared the following, which regards The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
The Marmite Nature Of Haruhi Suzumiya | Manga UK Blog
“Matt Kamen weighs the pros and cons…”
Well, now that we have Suzumiya Haruhi,
this post will travel from its title,
but what is Marmite?
Marmite - Love it or hate it
“Marmite is a nutritious savoury spread that contains B vitamins, enjoyable in a sandwich, on toast, bread or even as a cooking ingredient. You’ll either love it or hate it.”
Could such be for a land down under?
Marmite shortage leaves New Zealanders spreading themselves thin
“Nation told it goes further on toast after factory for local version, different from British kind, is shut by Christchurch quake.”

Marmite made illegal in Denmark - Telegraph
“According to the marketing slogan it is a taste that you either love or hate. But Danes will no longer get the chance to make up their own minds on Marmite after the British delicacy was banned under food safety laws.”
Oh, I see, because you’ll either love it or hate it, Melancholy is like Marmite; I have triumphantly updated my entertainingly shallow and pedantic blog.

Wednesday morning, I actually dreamed about SKET Dance.
Sket Dance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Sket Dance (スケット・ダンス, Suketto Dansu?, romanized as SKET DANCE in Japan) is a manga series written and illustrated by Kenta Shinohara and serialized, beginning in July 2007, in Shueisha's manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump.

Rainbow Dash

Just another My Little Pony Friendship is Magic blog, but not an ask blog, Cutie Mark Crusaders is a source for an image or two in this post, and the following relates to Rainbow Dash in the episode “Sonic Rain-boom,” if you are looking.

“So you’re dumping John and his festival for a night of country music with artists you don’t even know. If I was John, I would be feeling hurt.”

Whirlwind weekend 008

While I had planned to canvass several days during Spring Break, I spent some time with Denton on Wednesday. My appointment on Thursday afternoon, when the doctor and I analyzed the numbers from my blood test, made any effort impossible, but I did go out Friday, immediately after work.

My blood sugar and my liver proteins saw improvement; although I need to focus on my intake of fat for better cholesterol, my tests will now be every six months instead of every three months.

My class at the Roving Imp Training Center is generally on Tuesday, but I chose to go to H & R Block to redo my taxes. Riding in his jeep on Wednesday, Denton and I ran some errands, visited his childhood home, and ran some deliveries of Chinese food in the evening, so I finally went to class on Thursday.

Whose name I have previously misspelled here, my friend Alan received a visit from me on Friday night, after the shows at the Roving Imp.

To have my lube oil and filter change done on Saturday, I went to Superior Chevrolet, a Kansas City dealer located two block from my home. Without an appointment, but with a coupon, I arrived at 10:30 a.m., and when the service was not done by 11:45 a.m., I walked home to watch the new episode.

“Spike goes on a journey of self-discovery by joining the Great Dragon Migration.

I returned an hour and a half later. My finances became a little closer than I thought, so I had to return something to Toys ‘Я Us

Yeah, I had bought that for my ponies, but I needed the money more. On Saturday night, I saw more shows at the Roving Imp. Sunday was played by ear to the tune of two friends, one of whom I met for his birthday at Lakeside Tavern, where we watched some games in the collegiate basketball tournaments on CBS, then 60 Minutes began.
