    It's cool, mate. Don't worry. You're still the person around these parts I can talk to easily.

    It's fine, I guess I can see how it may have been interpreted.

    I'm just tired of things lately. I've done a fair bit of work for this year's convention and I never hear a single reply back. At the meeting last week, people said they loved what I did and wanted me to do more, so I took that on and said I'd need to contact them about a list of things and they said to email them, which I did, but still no reply, as usual. Same with a whole other bunch of people I'd want to consider friends but can't since they only contact me when they want something. Can only name 3 people IRL that contact me for something other that needing something. As for work, I recently got told the contract I'm on will not be renewed, which I find a joke since they claim my error rate is unacceptable, yet from doing QA of everyone else in my section, I find their error rates are much higher...yet they're not being reprimanded at all, presumably by having their butts covered by the same people who want me gone. I've barely been able to get any sleep lately when I wake up and feel half-dead for hours in the morning. I'm getting real sick of the hipster/overglam/overperfumed-aftershaved look which is in lately - it's fake as hell and their fragrances are nauseating. Getting sick of people only wanting to be surrounded by 'yes' people. Getting annoyed with having little time to relax or enjoy things these days. Sick of the insanely rude nature of young people I cross paths with IRL.

    You know how Anne of Green Gables once said 'When I'm alone, I don't feel lonely but when I'm with other people, I truly feel lonely'? That pretty much sums up how I feel lately. There's hardly anything I can trust or have faith in now.

    No...I said those participating in the Fantasy League want predictability so they can win. I'm not in it.

    Me? I like unpredictability and the #1 seed not winnning. What I did say was no matter what you do to the format, there's always a few who will outdo the rest by light years no matter what. But frankly unpredictability only truly kicks in at semi-finals time. Always has been.

    If my realism hurt you, apologies. But I have realism thrust into my face on a constant basis IRL and the lies of humanity with it. There's very little I can trust or believe in anymore. And the majority of comments/sentiments I see in most places don't help.

    I've never seen Saki in manga or anime form. It looks like one of those more plot-dependent manga adaptations that end on a note where you are begging for more and have to wait several years for a sequel (like Haruhi, unfortunately). Plus, mahjong doesn't interest me that much. I am, however, very aware of Saki's notorious upskirt shots that always avoid showing any panties, to the point where the fandom mostly agrees that all of the girls are going commando. Oh, and some of the characters are quite cute, but that's expected with such a large cast. It's not something I've completely written off in terms of interest, it's just on the back burner.

    So thanks for the invitation, but I'll have to decline because I know nothing about Saki.

    When it comes to anime, I prefer to go for complete stories, original anime, or adaptations of anything with a thin plot (like K-On). Generally, a big warning sign for me is when fans of an anime are clamoring "SECOND/THIRD SEASON WHEN???? I WANT MOAR X!" And that's exactly what I've seen with Saki. I try to avoid becoming one of those people, but sometimes unsuccessfully, like with Haruhi, Kamisama Dolls, and Natsume Yuujinchou (although that one isn't in shortage of episodes quite yet).

    I never was fond of the creepy Sayaka avatar, frankly. Too... creepy? But not much else. You have a flashy, pretty new one now, and I'm almost completely sure that it's from Aquarion EVOL despite not having started that yet.

    On another note, since I noticed you also enjoyed it, I just finished Another. Man, that was one hell of a fun ride, especially near the end! Best anime from PA Works yet.

    My girlfriend - by far the bigger Saki fan among us - has been trying to deter me joining on the grounds that all versions of Nodoka are good.

    On the flip side, I have some really good twintails Nodoka cosplay links... hmmm.

    Mahjong isn't hard to get a grip on. Just get someone that's good at explaining it to show you how to play. Me and one of my friends showed another friend how to play last weekend and he won the 3rd hand without any help.

    And I'll make a rant in that suffering thread later. Seeing it at 2am on Friday and work after I wake up is not a good time for rant mode.

    Your post in the "suffering" thread made me think this Okada quote from last ober that you might find of interest

    Quote:
    I like miserable characters who seek something but cannot obtain it.
    Zessica is a great example of course but Oscar in lupin III also qualifies as well as the 75th generation of akb0048,Strength in BRS,nearly the whole cast of Ano Hana

    I hope that's just a phase she's going through.

    Likewise. I don't always agree with you (and I'm sorry about the Guilty Crown thing), but I do like your thoughts on things.

    Mahjong is really a complex and tricky game. I found it to be a fun and frustrating game if you can't calculate points and understand how moves work. There's a funny story of my first mahjong debut, but I'll tell you that story some other time. I can tell you this: I thought that kongs were the best move in the game and it's so hilarious that I played mahjong around the same time Saki first aired.

    I play chess, but don't know people in my area who play it. I'm really good at it and I taught it to a few people in the past. I started playing it around middle school and played it as a past time during high school, never joined the club because I wanted to focus on homework and writing.
