... is driving me crazy. I try not to think of him. I try not to let his name run through my mind at all. Then it hits me, if I have to try he is already there. He is a wonderful friend and that's all he ever will be. I am too old to play games and flirt with the idea that a long distance relationship could work. They don't. Period.

But then I think of his bright smile and goofy laugh. His poetic words and riveting stories dance thorough my mind. The silly jokes, the things we have in common.... Every time I hear a RUSH song (his favorite band and #3 in my top 5) on the radio, there he is in my mind- no, my heart. There. I admit it, he has done the near impossible. HE got through to my heart.

We haven't even known each other that long. Our actual face to face contact has been minimal but already he is numbered among the few friends of mine that have stolen my heart. I have completely set myself up for a terrible heart break but in all honesty I don't really care that much. At the moment he has made me very happy and that is the moment I am choosing to hold on to.

R.O.D - Read or Dream

No point in this post, more anime invloved here. So I bought 4 of the 7 discs in the R.O.D the TV series last week at that sale. Well my buddies at Studio Anime failed to inform me the $45 complete 26 episode set was available. It's cool honey bunny because of course I bought it. I was up until 4 am watching the first twelve episodes. Bliss and joy. I finally saw episode 1. It was freakin' SWEET! Check out the the link above for footage from the show.

Yay! More ANIME!

Yesterday I found myself wandering around the mall at lunchtime because I could not figure out what to eat. Shopping is always a suitable alternative to food or pretty much anything. Anyway, I was actually on a mission. The song "Feeling That Way/ Anytime" by Journey has been stuck in my head for a month. Of course the only way to get it out is to put it in someone else's head or listen to it. I opted for listening to it, so off I went in search of "Infinity". My quest led me to Sam Goody, and they were having a going out of business blow out sale. Yipee! I totally cleaned house. Not only did I grab CD's, not Infinity, but 2 anime series. One of them is a full set of 4 discs for ~ $35. Normally in that store it would have been $130.

So this weekend I get to watch Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU! until I can't take it anymore. *dreamy sigh* I rented it two months ago and still find myself laughing when I recall certain scenes. Now of course, instead of having it stuck in my head, I can actually go watch it and laugh till I cry. Too bad I still have that song stuck in my head!

P.S. - the other anime was... "R.O.D the TV!! Life does have it's moments of goodness.

Green Apron Blues

It is spring and in Texas that means it is already summer. Ahh yes, the time has changed, the sun is shining and baristas everywhere are grumbling and whining. Only a person who has never had to tie the strings of the Siren's green to your waist would ask the question "Why?". I sympathize with every green apron out there. Be warned, my fellow baristas for FRAPPAGEDDON is upon us. Who will save us from such a depraved generation?


*note: this is at least 3 years old*

It was the words that I did not say,
all those things I wanted to tell you.

Each day went by, now it's tears that I cry,
why wouldn't I say what was as plain as day?

Now my heart, it breaks and each moment it aches...

If only I had said, "I'm in love with you"

All the times we shared, etched into my soul
now memories that will never be sold

To be with you, the sweetest dream,
but no longer is this seen

My love for you, so pure so true,
now you're gone, what am I to do?

In my pride, I let time fly
now all I can do is silently cry.

R.O.D - Read or Die

"Now might be a good time to look at it. You have a choice...
Read or Die!"
- Joker to Yomiko Readman, the Paper

Ahh, yes my darlings it seems my favorite series is back again. Last month, on my birthday no less, Volume 1 of the "Read or Die" manga was released in English. I was in geek heaven. I popped into Studio Anime Friday to pick up my reserved copy and have read it 3 times since.

I just love Agent Paper! Remember her?

She is a total nerd, a bibliophile. She lives for books and cannot get through the day without them. Although she is clumsy and goofy she is the most powerful Paper Master and effective agent for the Library of England. The huge glasses she wears belonged to her boyfriend, Donnie Nakajima, also a bibliophile and Paper Master. Now that he is dead she wears them so that he can continue to read through her eyes. What a sweet sentiment!

After reading the first installment many things from the R.O.D ova and R.O.D the TV already make sense. I am having so much fun with this and I cannot wait until May 17 when Volume 2 hits the shelves.

Somebody, Someone

It turns out that someone knew how somebody felt about them and decided to feign clueless. Somebody was afraid to tell someone their true feelings which is exactly why someone said nothing. Someone thought it was important for somebody to be the one to speak first because they knew it was a difficult task for somebody. Somebody is relieved that the truth is out in the open and is even more grateful for their newest friend. But at some point along the way someone mentioned a weakness. Oh yes, somebody knows the one thing in this world that someone does not like. Someone would go to great lengths to avoid contact with a certain object. Somebody may just have to take advantage of this. Pretending to be clueless, no matter how good the reasoning is behind it, is not fair. Does someone want chocolate covered cherries? Mmmm... tasty!
