Sailor Excel

It feels good to be caught up at work. Makes it a lot easier to walk in late and blow off any commentary the receptionist provides about my lax hours. ^_^

Work also provided me with the pleasures of lifting reasonably heavy boxes and discovering that one of my coworkers suffers from what I like to call the Peter Principle Plus. In other words, my coworker is two promotions beyond his/her abilities. There’s also another (!) meeting tomorrow morning (usually meetings come every other week); I predict that we’ll hear that a coworker or two has given their two week notices, among other things.

Wow. I actually have weekend plans again. Sadly, they include playing Guilty Gear XX at Lanwerx in Bellvue, Washington (a Penny-Arcade event)—but I will be joined by Andy, Nate, and Andy’s friend Jon. The weekend’s code name, as determined by Andy, is Project Beat Zappa’s Dog. [This is a clever merging of a Guilty Gear XX character who summons a demon dog with Project FF-Dog nomenclature, for those who may be unfamiliar with one or the other.] After dominating the unsuspecting masses, we’ll wander around and check out the Seattle nightlife. I’m curious about how we’ll hold up to the competition, but I suspect the larger amount of fun will be had checking out Seattle. (Believe it or not, I really don’t spend much time playing video games these days—that distinction goes to anime.)

Speaking of which, that odd picture of a fan I linked to last night in my stupor was the announcement for the new Nurse Witch Komugi-chan (an anime spinoff of the anime superhero show, SoulTaker) PS2 game. (^_^); I don’t really care about it, but I needed something to link to and I was running out of energy fast. Too bad I didn’t realize that there was something to link to that might actually be interesting to someone (Brian): the opening animation to the third Tenchi Muyo OVA. I’m glad they’re using the same character designs as the first two OVAs; the character designs in Tenchi in Tokyo were just weird, and everyone’s vacuous eyes (pick a picture) freaked me out a bit.

Tonight the Sailor Moon first season box set arrived, and we watched the first episode. I was greatly amused by the show, but I suspect that well over half of my amusement was derived from the fact that the voice of Sailor Moon is none other than Mitsuishi Kotono, a.k.a. Excel Excel from Excel Saga. Of course, my chronology is all backwards (Sailor Moon came long before Excel Saga), but that doesn’t detract from the fact that the idiotic Sailor Moon sounds the same as the idiotic Excel.

While finding the Project FF-Dog link, another link caught my eye: Japanese girls are crazy. Ha.
