Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

Well first of all I would like to say 'Early Happy Valentines Day" to whoever celebrates it. Myself and Shu won't be celebrating it until, oh.. whenever she gets the plans together. But well I know there are two camps; one camp says "yay hearts flowers and love' while the other says. "Commercialization.. screw you'. So I'll leave it up to you how you acknowledge it.

Secondly, we got our little girl tested for more allergies. Oh gods, the list expands and I'm wondering exactly what we're going to be feeding our litting girl. It's daunting. Dairy, nuts, egg, soy -and- wheat (let's not mention the stuff from the OTHER lower level food showcases) Obviously something has to give.. we're going to have to figure out what we can live with and what we can live without. The major ones are eggs and nuts.. those are non-negotiables and will kill her.

I got the first volume of Clamp's Gate 7 and I'm so happy, I've been following the manga online.. but I'm not an utter loser. I will buy anything of Clamp's that come out and Gate 7 is truly a marvelous thing to behold. I'm enjoying it and yes I do have favorite characters.

Merlin is epic and I've been glued to that series. For me it's Ru-Paul's Drag Race (I need my weekly dose of bitchy drag queens) and Merlin. Not to mention playing Star Wars The Old Republic with Shu. So I've been keeping myself semi occupied (not to mention, new Jo Beverly book.. that's a yearly occurance so I make it last)

I've had it up to HERE with Todd. That's no surprise though, but he has just really started to rankle me on so many levels, though luckily Shu's mom feels the same way about him as I do. But seriously, I have not seen someone so blatently oblivious to everyone's happiness then him. Granted I do have my selfish moments, but never once does my selfish moments ever get the kids dragged into it. Bubby had Pneumonia this weekend (funny that I can spell pneumonia and not occurance) and he had a date down, he only called to check on Bubby like once and that was a text message. We'll all be better when he loses that final hold of control over all of us.

Wow! Holy Update, Batman!

Happy early Valentine's Day to you, too! I'm glad to hear Clamp isn't sucking any longer; between Blood-C and the ending of xxxHolic, I was a bit concerned. It may almost motivate me to pick up the reboot of Legal Drug that's going on, since I always wanted to know how that ended. I've also heard that Merlin is a great deal of fun, but one of my fellow Arthurian nuts who watches it told me it'd be better for me to avoid it since I'm sort of a stickler to the general roles. I was a big nerd who wanted to do the Oxbridge thing and write papers on the lore, even.

I'm sorry to hear that your little girl has such severe allergies, but if she's young, it's possible for her to grow out of them. One of my good friends (the Arthurian nut) knows a couple whose daughter has the same drastic amount, and hers keep shifting. Best of luck in finding a healthy list for all of you to work with. Hopefully Todd gets out of your hair soon, too.

Well I think that I'm not so much a stickler for the roles.. if only because I tended to hate Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot (and oh Shu, Shu hates Lancelot.. like nobodies business) but I slowly got into the character of Arthur as portrayed through the series. Granted I know what's supposed to happen and things have NOT been shaping up that way.. but you know what, I'll take Arthur's temperment, definitely.

And oh I hope she gets over her food allergies too. She does seem to be fluctuating quite a bit. -_-

Clamp loves to suck, I'll tell you that. -_-

Yeah, that's why I had to say 'roles' versus 'canon', because Arthurian canon has always been fast and loose (although most do try keep to the very basics), but even then, it really depends on whatever you're reading. I don't own all the iterations ever, but some of my favorite versions have been the T.H. White ones, especially in The Once and Future King. On the other hand, I HATE the Mists of Avalon trio. My favorite Arthur figure is a kid named Bran, though. He's awesome and snarky and Welsh.

Mercedes Lackey also did a Guinevere story that started okay and with an awesome Gwen, but she's kind of going uneven in her old age, so it ended pretty crappily and without much build-up. Maybe that's Clamp's problem, too :|

Here's to the best for your sweetie and her allergies, though! I'm sure she's especially tired of not eating fun things. -_-
