The ribbon used would probably be quite thick, and after wrapping the ribbon around the centre knot to secure it, it is most likely tied around a small ponytail/half-ponytail or bun, or it is wrapped around two long fringes used to secure the hair from the front backwards : by wrapping the leftover ribbon around the two fringes at the back before tying a knot, or putting the two fringes together into a ponytail and tying the ribbon over it.

Though some anime girls look like they might tie all off their side hair up in them, and just leave the back untied, or tie a small portion of the hair in the side-back area up, leaving most of it not tied. It varies per which characters' style you're referring to exactly .
No no, I was thinking about something more like this.

OH, use the ribbon over a small ponytail/bun, I didn't even think of that at all , Thanks again.

Hmmm I am really not sure how that's different from normal twintails then , I think you'd just need to tie the ribbon higher is all.

With a big fluffy ribbon like that, the size of the original reel would have been big. I suggest that you make the ribbon first, decorate it, seal the ends and attach it to a normal hairband or hairpin.

If it doesn't stand, use starch and iron - it is funny how serving 2 years can give you ideas for cosplay.

Anyway, anyone here work at a tech-support call-centre before? How is it like? I am thinking of taking up a part-time contract a good friend offered me because he is having problems keeping people in place; most of them are willing to hand back their pay and run instead of staying and getting screwed over the phone.

Get into the habit of going to bed on time (set 11 PM as an absolute limit, and aim to go before 10), getting a proper amount of sleep, and waking up early. Do that for some amount of time, and you'll no longer be a "night owl."

But old habits die hard. I haven't been on the "night owl" schedule for many years, but if I'm not watching the clock, I can easily be up until sunrise. Do that even once and it can screw up your entire schedule for the next few days, as you'll be playing catch-up with your sleep/wake cycles and you'll be forcing yourself to stay awake and go to sleep at times that won't feel natural anymore.

Because my undergrad is a co-op, I have to wake up at 6:00 am every day when it's a work term. But as soon as it hits the weekends, it's sleep at 3 am and wake up at 12 noon.

Makes me cringe whenever I get reminded how unhealthy it is to change sleep/meal schedules.

I have to say that your team leader is being really uptight it is. I think he/she is clearly aware of what kind of sleep schedule students and just pushing a morning time anyways. When I negotiate lab meets with my group, we always go with 10 am to whenever dinner/supper is.
A bit relieved knowing that the habit could be fixed. I used to always come to school on time back in high school so it's not entirely impossible for me

But... i don't know. I still in doubt whenever thinking about how comparing to other time of the day, 8 pm - 4am is still the longest duration that your mind can concentrate in something without being distracted....

And sometime when you watched those anime, or playing those games when you feel begging the God (of gaming,and Haruhi) to see just one more episode/ play one more campaign. I guess all night entertainment have to be reserved to weekend from now on D:

Edit out the text on the shirt (or replace it with something like "Free!!!") would be my suggestion but I'm not a mod, just a staff monkey

Profanity is generally discouraged in posting (though we're all guilty of it sometimes). However, as far as I can see, the rules only really cover visuals (no nipples, etc).

If you want a faster mod response - report your own post above (use the "report" (!) button under your name on it) and just ask them if the image is okay for an avatar.

P.S. Oh, and if no one else said it, welcome to the forums. Be sure and read the forum rules - they do differ a bit from many forums.

But the text on the shirt is what makes it such good avatar material ( ̄ω ̄b)

Just reported it- and thank you for the welcome.

I'd say that it's too suggestive and potentially offensive to be PG-13 (per our Forum Rules). So, no on that... but at least it was good to ask beforehand.

This might be a bit of an odd question...
Who would be considered the "Nolan North" of the anime voice acting industry?

Probably some anime voice actor I never heard of.
The similarities are there.

Google has become the Borg Mind (waits for neural implant):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_North

But to answer the question.... a couple of years ago, I might have had an answer but right at the moment not sure anyone stands out. I'm actually not very fond of the idea of a "go to one guy" for everything when there is a pool of good actors.

For example, I'm delighted that James Hong is getting steady work (you see him in cameo roles *everywhere* on television and in movies both live and animated) but there's a small pile of asian actors not getting calls who could also use some work.

Is it common for nurse to give some sweet thing (in my country: sweet iced tea) after blood donation? What about another country?

Not that I know of. Maybe you just have a kind-hearted nurse.

Sugar is good to replenish some strength presumably lost with your blood. In Japan you get free juice.

I think it's just generosity/old-habits. The kind of energy from glucose supplement is really unnecessary. Unless you have some hypoglycemia-like problem and have to constantly stuff yourself with sweets? But that's irrelevant to the blood loss as you have to keep your levels above minimum at all times anyways.

I don't get any consumables after blood donation. They do tell me to eat, but that's food in general and not sweets.

Glucose tolerance test for diagnosing diabetics involve ridiculously over-concentrated sugary juice between blood test. That's all I can think of, involving sweets.

I would actually prefer a 150cm tall trainee nurse with a ponytail. No need for sweets.

More serious but maybe still silly question.

How do you rent an apartment if you have an eviction? I've got nothing here. I've tried basically everything I can think of short of offering to pay the entire lease up front (which I can't afford to do even if I wanted to).

I was evicted from an apartment in 2009 after the big housing market crash and I was laid off. So far I've run into roadblock after roadblock trying to rent a place. I'm going to end up homeless (again) unless I figure out how to get around this obstacle. Every search online suggests things I've already tried and have already failed.

We do? Hmmm... I don't know... But do we encourage them to eat a lot afterwards and some fluids... but give something? Probably it depends on the institution you are in.
