I've been translating some of dat BotI volume, to see what the hell was up with that.

Spoiler and trigger warning applies here too. )

If my uni's online portal isn't having a hiccup or anyhting, then it looks like... I have a straight A in Japanese.

Hoooly shit. Idk how I did that. But apparently I did?

Strange happenings these days:

On Monday morning, I decided to go home from uni by tram (I usually go by bus). The tram station borders a small square. On this square, there was a block of beton, on which a man was walking. It looked sort of as if there was a treadmill installed on the top of the block. It caught quite a bit of attention. Some people even asked the man how he got up there, but he ignored them. Another guy was circling the block with the man on it on his bicycle and filming it. I wonder if he did that just because or whether that was his task. The whole thing seemed like some artsy Performance/Happening thing. I thought about asking, but then my tram came.

Yesterday morning, in the bus I took to uni, there was a spider. A teeny, tiny spider that spun its threads in front of me. The weird thing was that it seemed to be hanging by a string, but on the other hand, it was crawling like everywhere! And none of its threads were visible, so it looked like it was just crawling through the air.

Then I had communications class. Backstory: recently, we had to write up a gossipy dialogue for homework. Not able to think of anything else, I wrote about whether Lady Gaga is really a man. Well, so in this class, we were doing comparisons, and as an example for "man who looks like a woman", the teacher showed us a Lady Gaga picture. Then she mentioned that another student had written this in her gossipy dialogue. Apparently, we confused her. The other "man who looks like a woman" example, by the way, was Gackt.

Then today, I got a mail from Takagi bookstore in Düsseldorf, saying that the Japanese volume 26 of BotI just came in, and whether I was interested. I wrote back that OF COURSE I AM INTERESTED, and now they're keeping it for me. ♥ It's just oddly sweet that they'd still remember a customer from over a year ago. And thus: trip to Düsseldorf in the near future! Yay!
