There is a torrent for Soragumi's Phantom and nobody is seeding it. Why does the interwebz hate me?!

Group assignment is kind of a joke. I am the only one anywhere near organised and we are presenting on Tuesday. Anyway, now I have to put together the timeline that Fearless Leader was supposed to do, and start scripting. At least the subject matter has been interesting - labour relations in China. I have to say, my other group members have a very optimistic view of China and it is changing for the better for real this time. Still, those that try and start unions to compete with CCP sponsored ACFTU tend to end up in jail or, on occasion, dead.

C has got me well trained. I spent the whole evening looking out for Haya-chan. Credit where credit is due, Haya-chan is one of the most ridiculously adorable Siennes out there. C still seems convinced I'm going to be a Doi-chan fangirl though. Tonight, I really wish I had Rose of Versailles (Oscar and Andre), Scarlet Pimpernel, or Phoenix Wright. Admittedly, I haven't seen the last one, but I really want to. Actually, the BeruBara anime would be nice as well. Okay so the list could keep going - "A"-rex, The Second Life, El Halcon, the Ceasar one who's name escapes me right now. I'm going to stop now. Why must Takarazuka stuff be so expensive? Also, why must C have never followed through on her promises to keep burning things for me?

Why isn't J on Skype? I want someone to talk to.

I may have to start on the M*A*S*H DVDs. Trapper fix ahead!

Thanks to the Takarazuka secret on FS, I am now having a bit of a craving. Should I watch something that is properly good, like Elisabeth, or something trashy and fun, like Copacabana? I really wish I had Pimpernel. That would make this decision so much easier because Pimpernel is awesome.

This is probably not going to help with my post-JET recovery, but dammit, I don't care. What are a few more tears. Actually, about that, I should maybe clarify. I did not get rejected outright, I was made an alternate. I'm still not sure whether to accept it and remain in limbo for potentially another 7 months, or to just chuck it in and move on.

In some good news, I've picked up another couple of hours a week tutoring an ESL student. It is a little terrifying though, he wants to learn from the ground up and I am not that experienced. This is helpful, though, I don't like the whole dependent on my parents business.

I have regular, semi-well paying work! Best of all, it is work proofreading, which is both kind of enjoyable and easy.

I am going to see Stephen K Amos tomorrow night. There will be Maccas for dinner, and Freestyle for dessert. I also have 2500 words due on Friday, but I am just going to gloss over that fact. There are plans being made to see Wil Anderson in November, which will be awesome. I will admit that one of the saving graces of living in Brisbane is the stand-up. I will miss that when I leave. I will miss it a lot.

I have fallen head-over-heels in love with the Pimpernel soundtrack. I have no idea what the lyrics are, well, what most of the lyrics are, but it is still fantastic. I wish I could go back to Takarazuka.
