Today, I didn't get around to writing or reading manga. I had a lot of email for some reason, even more messages on the new forum, and checked other things. Kind of crazy! Someone commented on the 2nd chapter of my story. They loved it, and said it's very intense. I guess that's a good thing, makes it interesting. :P Since I'm a part of the prose and poetry social group on the new forum, I'm going to see what they think of it. It's always nice to see what a wide range of people say about it.
For Japanese, I did the su section and started the shi section. (Hehehe... just realized put together it's 'sushi', kind of weird.) 水曜日 or suiyoubi means Wednesday. Skaato means skirt. 好き or suki means love or fondness. (Pronounced like ski.) 過ぎ or sugi means past or after. 直ぐに or suguni means at once or immediately. 少し or sukoshi means small quantity, little, few, something, little while, short distance. 涼しい or suzushii means cool (weather) or refreshing. Zutsu means each. Sutoobu means stove. Supoon means spoon. Supootsu means sports. Zubon means trousers. (Interestingly, they adopted this word from the French jupon.) Surippa means slipper or slippers. It sounds like it would be more for syrup, but I'll just have to keep this one in mind. 四 or shi means 4. (Another one for 4 was yon.) 時 or ji means hour or o'clock. 塩 or shio means salt. 併し or shikashi means but or however. 時間 or jikan means time or hours. 仕事 or shigoto means work or job. 辞書 or jisho means dictionary or lexacon. 静か or shizuka means quiet. 下 or shita means under, below, down, bottom, beneath, and underneath. (It's logical to me that it would be that from the kanji.) 質問 or shitsumon means question or inquiry.
A lot of the anime I'm watching, I had problems with watching the next episodes. So, I watched some of Primeval. Now, this paragraph might end with a big spoiler, just a warning. (If you don't want to see go on to the next one. :P Helen has learned how to clone people and how to train them with her voice. A reporter is trying to get the 'scoop' on these dinosaur sightings, but no matter what he does during this episode he doesn't get any proof. This time there was an anomaly at a hospital. It was coming out of the floor. o_O Eventually Helen did clone Cutter (the guy in the picture.) and he infiltrates the ARC. He seems to repeat things, and tries to keep quiet. This automatically sends off bells with the head of the ARC. The creature this time was a Diictodon. They're known for burrowing and chewing through anything. They are small and fat things. Helen takes over the ARC with her clones. 2 of the dinsaurs don't make it into the anomaly, so Abby and Connor say they'll 'keep them'. :D The fake (or clone) of Cutter meets the real one, they made it really cool to see. The reason behind Helen's actions is she wants to change the future. The cylinder container that Helen found, Cutter realized it has an anomaly in it. She wanted to know about it. The team stopped the clones by copying Helen's voice, messing with it, and by broadcasting it over the system saying 'Stop. Do nothing. Obey my voice.' over and over. The fake Cutter bombs the main part of the ARC. After getting out alive, Cutter goes back in to see if Helen's alive and to save her. That was real bright! :P Helen shoots him. Connor finds him slowly dying and stays by his side until he dies. While he's sitting with him, Cutter gives Connor the container. I can't believe he dies! He's like the show itself. Crazy! I guess Connor might become the new Cutter. :D
I played a game called Cyto- life. You play as an amoeba, and through leveling up you get points towards evolving. You can grow a long thorn, have many 'fins' (I think they're really flagella), grow long cilia, grow a strong almost impenetrable cell wall, and more. It's oddly addicting. You go around eating dead cells at first. Then, eventually through evolving, you can eat other amoebas. Well, tomorrow I hope to get a lot more done. It was just a weird day, maybe because I'm still a bit tired. At least I exercised and got most things done. ^_^
