Ohohohoo~~! I see my very very first website layout is still up!!! O_O;; I thought I'd deleted that image from my account... ?_? *LOL*
Go see it at a namezero domain here. It was made with Frontpage and little (more like no) taste or experience. XD

Alexa-san, thanks very much for the comments, I really appreciate it. ^___^ I still feel however that I need a hiatus...I dunno, for a change? ^^;
Oh course, it might last a lot shorter than I expected but still, I have loads of things I need to think about to do with Shizukesa. =/ Like there're lots of sites I want to put up, like an image gallery, a cliques page, some not half baked (where content is concerned) sites among several other things.
And I probably need a new freeserver as well. Brinkster is just too bitchy for me to deal with. >_<;; Anyone know of any reliable freeservers with no ads, a lot of space and are not, or brinkster? If you do, please tell me. I'd really appreciate it!
Well, on to different things. ^^ I'm going for my Alpha Camp next week, which is supposedly a super fun and a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience kind of thing.
Being submerged in mud (and not the watery kind too, the real sloppy that crusts on your skin and hair kind), running 4km first thing in the morning of every single day of the camp and coming home with a face half peeled off from sunburns is not exactly my kind of "fun".
But people have come back from it alive so I guess I'll live. XD But seriously, I really am kind of looking forward to it. =D (even though the place is so freakin isolated and a rather scary distance away from civilisation!)

Oooh!!! O.O!!! There is a PRETTY new HANAKIMI layout at Gaile's blog!!! :D~~~ I made a layout using that pretty image once for one of my fanfiction sites, but it turned out kinda bleh. And I also edited Mizuki and Nakatsu out of the sakura-ridden ground, just so you know. ^_^;;
Oh yes and Flipper-san, don't know if you read this, but I've heard AddrCOM is pretty good... I recommended it to Tin and she was ecstatic! XD
Oh yes and as a side note, nope. My dad never deigns to clean up my room, in fact, he doesn't even dare venture in there!! *evil grin*

Yesterday I was seriously considering putting Shizukesa on hiatus, not a short one, I was thinking maybe a couple of months. =_= I even made a hiatus image to put up!
Now, I'm still thinking about it, and I'm still not sure whether to go ahead with it. The thing is, I've been very dissatisfied with my layouts and content and my collective in general lately.
I want to make several new sites and add a LOT of stuff that I've always wanted to and actually thought I would, but never did in the end. And I'm pretty certain that a period of self-reflection (XD) and time alone will manage that.
What I'm saying is that one huge update will probably do it better than many small updates (with me procrastinating more and more in between) and besides, a hiatus sounds really appealing right now. *nods*
Yeah well, looks like I'm not considering it anymore. ^^;;;; Yep, I just talked myself into it! The hiatus image will be up as soon as I get home. =_=
Oh yeah, thanks a lot for the info, Sakura-san! And why doesn't "" work? ?_?;; *changing Zoostation's link on Spinel*

*heaves sigh* So I spent an hour wrapping my book (okay, so I suck at wrapping >_<) with a beautiful GORGEOUS DARK poster that I got in my phonebook manga.. *_* However, I brought it to school, tried to show it off and here were some of the reactions I got:

He looks gay. Guys with purple hair are always gay.
My god, he doesn't have lips. And he looks like ET.
Oh, the hair's nice. The eyes are scary though.
He looks like ET!!! O_o!!

What is up with DARK and ET and the ignorant bishounen-deprived morons that are my friends?!?!
Ay!!!! Joey signed my guestbook with a beautiful and sweet message!!! ^____^ I love it when people sign my gbook and most of the time I return the favour... *hinthint*
And Joey-chan, cheer up okay? ^____^ I may not be the best at cheering people up, but hey--I tried. :)

Eh. How come everyone knows who the guy in my layout is except me? >_>;; I only know he's from a series called "Candidate for Goddess" or something like that anyway. ^^;;
But he sure looks like something from Yukiru Sugisaki's sketch book ne? But how I hate that layout. >_<;; I must change it...must must. ^^

Wow, Flipper's blog has a gorgeous 3D effect layout! ^___^ How amazing, Flipper-san! I wish I had a 3D graphics program, though I probably wouldn't be able to make it work for me anyway. =_=
And this is a really pretty site as well, it's not anime. It's a digital art gallery. *_* Daisuki...

What? Ruby-san, you've never read an AS fic? o_o;; I thought you were the most devoted (and rabid XD) AS fan! Naw, kidding.
But seriously, I'm really wondering about the lack of AS fics on the Net. Why is this so? I agree, Ruby, that certain series just scream to be ficced (^^) about, and others just need to be left alone. But AS to me is an incredibly angsty and complex series that's just begging for me to write it! (or me, begging it to cooperate--whatever! ^^;)
Okay, that's it. I'm gonna write an AS fic today! *determined* It'll be angsty and most probably sucky, but AS ficdom must be revived! *_* Oh yeah, Ruby-san, I'll try also to write Clover and YnM as soon as I get ahold of the series. YnM seems to be rather popular with ficcers ne? =D

Okaay... I feel like I've been living in the stone ages!!! I finally finally got Extreme Tracking for this blog and realized just how many referrers I was getting. The Counter wouldn't show me anything so I thought forget it, I probably don't have that many referrers anyway.
But--look! I found two really really pretty blogs that linked me: Here and here. T_T Such lovely people with lovely blogs!
And Jessica-- (I know this is a little late ^^) but... *runs to embrace fellow Saitou worshipper* Ahhh! We're bestfriends now aren't we? ;D

Hmm... uploading Shizukesa's next layout... feeling bored...very bored... *sigh* Brinkster is still being cruel and goes down half the time. >_<
*looks up to the link list* You know...what's listed is actually half of the blogs I read, I'm just too lazy to list them all... ugh.
Suddenly I have this urge to start writing fanfiction again. ^___^ I want to write loads of angst and here are two series that I'll probably try to do: Angel Sanctuary, Ayashi no Ceres. I would write fanfiction for these series if my style weren't so darn different from them: Hanakimi, Karekano. I want to get these series so I can write fics about them: CCS, Yami no Matsuei, Clover.
Eeeh, if only I could gather the time and spirit (^^) to do them all.
And now, isn't working. And why don't the referrers for this blog show up?!? *going off to get Extreme Tracking for Spinel*

Picked up some more AS tankoubon yesterday, as well as 2 volumes of a series called "Oh! My Teacher's 16!" ^^;; Now how could I have resisted a title like that huh? =D
Pattie, I don't know if you read my blog (or just came for Sou-kun. ;_;) but I simply don't understand what it is with fangirls and Soujirou! >_>;
I mean, he's prettier than any of us could ever be, he's small sized, pretty much what Kenshin would look like without his scar... the only good thing about him I can think of is his sword techniques! Whoo hoo! But other than that, worshipping him (to me) would be like being gay, cos he just looks SO much like a girl! XD
Sorry, I'm still a fangirl and I still think bishounen are the perfect embodiment of my dream guy, but Soujirou is just too girly. :D
Okay, enough about Sou-kun. ^^ I wonder--are there any Yuu Watase diehard fans out there? Cos I've just started getting addicted to one of her manga series, and it's not Imadoki, FY or AnC.
It has two parts, both comprising of 3 volumes, and its main character is named Asuka. ^^ (that much I could gather) I've tried looking it up, but not knowing the Japanese title just makes it that much harder. >_>; So if anyone could tell me what the title is, I'll do you a favour in return! *_*
Yes, yes, link time. Wire-d has received a pretty Valentine's day layout, featuring Clover characters. I like, Toshi-san! Its host Braided Baka has also been updated with a purty pink Sakura layout! Even though I still have yet to read CCS, the art is still pretty enough to worship! ^_^

Hehe, thanks Ruby! ^^v Speaking of AS fics, are there any good ones that anyone can recommend? I haven't come across any that really *koff* caught my eye... ^^;;; But when it comes to fics, I'm picky like that.
Naw... Joey, why on earth should I do that when you've only insulted my Saitou-kun!!! >_<;; Nah, but really. I meant the Sano on the *cough* rather ugly adoption centre layout. ^^;;

Argh, my sucky connection crapped out on me and wouldn't let me back on for a long time, while I was talking to Tin and Anna! >_<; Sorry guys! ^^;
Oh, and I wrote an AS fic. o_o;;; How long has it been since I've written any fics? It's not exactly a fic though, it's a poem. About Katan and Rociel. ^^; (Joey, ya happy now?) Not posting it here, you'll have to wait for the next Shizukesa update. :P
*is swamped with RK chibi requests* Sorry guys, everyone's been taken. I do have some cute blinking animation RK gifs of Kenshin, Kaoru, Yahiko and Sano though. *points to the somewhat strange-looking Sano in the adoption centre* Yep, they look like that. o_o; Oh yes, and Tin-san, you do want Battousai right? *looks anxious* Cos I reserved him just for you, he's ready for you to pick him up! XD

Kya~! I didn't know Toshiko had a group blog!! Until she adopted chibi Misao, that is. =D Will link it soon Toshi-san, Koori-san and Koichi-san. Such lovely people. *_*
I met them at the Miyuki Cosplay last year and they were all so nice. Toshiko was the Aoiya Misao, Koichi was the Madhatter from AS, and I'm not sure who Koori was... ^^ Gomen!
I was Sano! *does strut pose* Oh, how I love cosplays. ^^; I still haven't gotten over the excitement of it even though it was months ago. *sweatdrop*
EHHH?! The thumbnails at Sakura's blog feature the same image I used for my next Shizukesa layout! *_* It's a pretty image ne? *niko*

Currently listening to Ayumi Hamasaki's "M" and Hiro's "Treasure"... ooh, how I love both songs... *_*
Yay! I caught my dearest Joey and Anna just now!! *feeling genki* Joey, thaaaanks for the icon!! *proudly displays kero-chan* And Anna, I don't know if you read this, but sorry for cutting off like that... =( But I'll make it up to you, we'll have lots of silly fangirl Hanakimi-centred giggle sessions soon okay?
V-CHAN!! Congrats on 10,000 hits!!! ^___^ And Tin, I like the Niaiserie layout, and the 5:03pm post. Boy do I feel enlightened... :P
I'm now churning out Hanakimi translations for the next Shizukesa update... *mutter grumble* And before I leave you for the day, here's a link to a very pretty online manga site... I couldn't believe that the main image was original art! ^_^

Oh dear Ruby-san, I'm afraid Alexa-san beat you to Soujirou... ^^ Ah well, Shishio still kicks ass with his pristine bandages... ^___^
Yes, and thanks everyone who was kind enough to wish me a fast recovery! ^^; I'm feeling much better now I think... >.> Everyone who hasn't adopted an RK chibi...what're you waiting for?! They're going fasst! XDD;

*bites lip and tries hard not to cry* I was sick on Friday (which is also why I didn't blog) but today I feel absolutely terrible. My stomach feels like there's knives twisting around in there... ;_;
This morning it wasn't so bad, but now the pain is just getting so intense. And what makes it worse was that I had to go down to the comic shop to return my rented manga even with the pain, and it was closed!
Ahhh... I'm logging off cos I feel like shit and I just wanna go sleep. =_= Oh yeah, here's a nice link that made me feel a helluva lot better.
