literally just refreshed tumblr on my laptop and then got distracted, looked at my phone, and loaded tumblr on my phone

a new low?

Describe your personality

Er… me?

have you ever eaten a food that looks kind of strange but at the same time harmless? And so you stick it into your mouth and it’s like BAM IT’S REALLY SPICY AND REALLY WEIRD TASTING so you kind of gag but swallow it anyway because you’re in front of important company and it’d be rude to spit

and about 5 minutes later you’re like “I suppose that wasn’t so bad, it wasn’t even that spicy” so you kind of want to eat it again but you’re not sure if you should?

I’m like that.


My head hurts. Today’s been quite a whirlwind of a day. Some really unexpected things happened. I met another mysterious and elusive Foreigner which I did not even know existed in our quaint little town. 

And after driving her home I developed this massive headache.

set of nostalgia drawings by gabriel picolo. i don’t think i have enough space on my tumblr for all his works that i’d like to post.

these are incredible

And I'm sorry if you've answered that before but I'm relatively new to your blog :C

Naw, don’t worry anon.

Seriously, I don’t mind the questions, you guys! You’re always so polite and nice!

I have the best followers!

Okay I don't want to sound insensitive because I'm really trying to understand agender fully but, when someone is talking about you to another person what kind of pronouns do you prefer since you don't really identify with either basic gender?

To be honest, I’m not sure which pronouns they use, everyone probably just uses what they usually have. I’d prefer them/they, since that’s neutral. 

But as always I put in the disclaimer - if you know me irl, don’t use these pronouns to talk about me to my family. I’m not out to my family, shit might get real weird and real awkward real quick and I don’t want to delve into that. 


Sendai trip!

This has been a weekend full of travels - and today, Lynn and I went to Sendai, because we both had the day off. Needless to say, it was a great success. It also considerably emptied my wallet. 

This isn’t difficult to do with Lynn around, because she keeps on suggesting we go to arcade games. And buy more pokemon things. And generally takes me to places where I’m prone to spending the most money.

Which…. I don’t really mind that much.

This month is crazy happy japan month. Next month will be frugal hardworking month.

Except oops we’re going rafting hahaahaha

maybe…. 3 months from now can be frugal month? 


the fact that chekov says “wessels” still bothers the fuck out of me

that is not russian. russian doesn’t have that sound. russian usually does the opposite, turning english into V (vashington)

reading about polish Ł reminded me (because Ł is actually pronounced as English W)

I remember that when I first watched the movie, this part bothered the fuck out of me too. Then I remember starting a discussion about the differences between Russian V and American English V. 

I can’t find the articles anymore, and maybe I’m fooling myself, but because the russian phonology doesn’t have a [w], essentially, the [v] ends up being softer and essentially can sometimes shift towards the labial side of things because there’s no minimal pair risk. 

In a bout of REALLY BAD SCIENCE I just tested it on myself and yes, in rapid speech, I’m not actually touching my teeth to my lips to make the sound, I’m actually just compressing the air with my lips alone. This can sound somewhat softer.

THAT BEING SAID, It’s still a fucking V. And If I had to say the word “vessel” in a russian accent, the only thing that would change would be the [e], which moves further into the back of the mouth.

So, bad linguistics on Star Trek’s part.

People in Ferguson Still Need Help!

This website contains a wealth of useful information on ways to help the people in Ferguson, how you can organize and participate locally, and helps to spread the word and keep the message strong. 

Book Off! sells (lightly used) 3DS games for cheap, and they may sell 3DSs as well? Otherwise, pretty much any major electronics store should have them (Yodobashi Camera, etc.).

Haha! I actually got one at Hard Off? And ended up getting a whole bunch of pokemon stuff at book off.

But yes! I got the cheapest they had, which was 10800円. 

Which is kind of weird, because my American 3DS, which I bought quite a while ago, was only $20 more than that. They don’t fall in price much, do they?

shotgunheartのコメント: IIRC on my flashcard on DS #1 I could play Japanese ROMs. Dunno if there’s a working flashcard for 3DS though.

I’m not sure if I wanna go through the trouble of region unlocking it. I’d probably rather just get another 3DS. Might as well have a backup. 

The question now is - how much do they cost and where are they sold? I could just go driving around and guessing, but I’d rather find out from a better source that knows the best prices/places.
