As you may have heard me dither about already, I'm going to Japan, and I'll be going to Comiket 79! For at least days 1 and 2, and day 3 if I'm not traumatised by that stage.

If you would like something that's only avaialable at Comiket or somewhere else in Japan (otaku-related or otherwise), I'll be happy to try and grab it for you! If you have something in mind, please send a message to me (my Twitter nickname at Gmail) and I'll try to pick it up on your behalf!

A few caveats:
* This only goes for people I at least vaguely know. Don't have the time or the skills to be a proxy buyer, even if I could do with the commissions. :B
* I'm not getting anything ridiculously popular that involves lining up for six hours at Comiket before the buttcrack of dawn (none of the stuff I want is in this category, buggered if I'll do it for anyone else)
* I'm not getting anything that will get me party-v&ed in Australia. I'll be paranoid about losing anything even vaguely spicy in Customs as it is. :[
* As far as I know, the package weight limit between US and Japan is still in effect, so if what you want weighs over a pound, I'll have to send it in separate packages or via a slower method (if there is one?). If this bothers you, apparently the restriction is only for individuals sending mail, so if you have your eye on something, you might be better off ordering it online!
* I've got Paypal so sending me money should not be a problem~
* My Japanese skill = what skills? So if something's particularly obscure I might not be able to help, sorry! But I'll try my best!

I quit my job a month ago (I kind of miss it, but it was definitely the right move, it was turning me into a person I don't find very appealing) and I am now staying with my mother in a small country town. I'm taking it easy and watching the pets (AKA free entertainment). There is an advert going out in the local newsletter saying 'computer repairs phone me' basically because I will need the moneys (more on that later). I am spending my last few days of guilt-free slacking... catching up on paperwork. Ugh! Well, I finally know how the hell superannuation works, I guess now is the best time to do it.

Almost by accident, I have planned a trip to Japan! I'll do the nerd runs (including Winter Comiket, oh boy) then after New Year I'll be wandering the country making an ass of myself, and I'll stop off in Kuala Lumpur with some other people on the way back. I'm very excited! But yeah, money. (The trip itself I can afford no problem, it's afterwards that scares me...)

Technically I'm looking around for courses to study, but nothing I've seen yet appeals to me at all (or aren't available externally). It doesn't help that while I am full of big words, I'm wondering if I am completely misled and if I should focus my talents elsewhere (what are my talents even?)

In the meantime, I'm tinkering with a Nier fan project that is overly ambitious as is usual for me, but at least it's a huge pile of fun. I have corpses of fanfics scattered all over the place and I want to concentrate on original stuff, so this is likely the last long-form fanwork I'll ever attempt. Thus, I'm trying my damndest to get a plot out of the thing, and... succeeding? What!? Well, the writing is a bit shite, but that's what draft revisions are for, aren't they?

All the Nier-ing was beginning to do my head in, so I played a bit more of the Undead Nightmare DLC for Red Dead Redemption last night as a palate cleanser. I'm one of those 'what zombies AGAIN?' wowsers, but it warms my heart to revisit the characters, and Professor MacDougal gets eaten by zombies in the first fifteen minutes which is worth 800 points alone 8D

I think I have wasted sufficient time. TTFN.
