I can't write in triplets of iambic pentameter. I just can't.

Today's Bridge: Only three people showed up. Even our emergency fourths were too busy to play, so I just went back to my desk and played Apollo Justice for half an hour. I had to stop right at the beginning of the first testimony in that day's trial. Great stopping point, huh?

Today's Work: A bit more programming, and I had to bring the design document up to date with the way I ended up doing things.

Today's Ctrl-Alt-Del: One of the funniest of anything I've read in a long time.

Might as well describe the rest of the new manga series I've read recently, as best I can remember them.

Momogumi Plus Senki: I'm not entirely sure what to make of this one. I don't know the story of Momotaro as well as I probably should, but I've got the gist from this story. It's pretty fun, and the cast growth reminds me a bit of a Rumiko Takahashi story, especially with the weapon that's evolving as the main character "defeats" the demons. It seems like there will be a lot of slapstick involving his bad-luck curse... think Tenchi GXP, but on Earth.

Karakuri Odette: This is a great series so far, and I'm sad that it took me so long to remember that I needed to read it. I love stories with emotionless characters, particularly robots, trying to be more human, and Odette goes farther with it than most do. Just about every chapter has a powerful emotional appeal, and there's plenty of humor as well.

Kannazuki no Miko: It's like magical girls and mecha all in one, except that both elements are glossed over in favor of the very strange relationship between the girls who are the priestesses. And I mean VERY strange... I still don't know what was with the ending of the first book, and I'm not sure I want to, but I know I'm going to have to read the second book when it comes out. But yeah, that was disturbing. Until then, just your standard "flip the pages until you can see people talking" series that earns its "Mature" rating by virtue of a couple of short scenes that overshadow the rest of the story.

Happy Café: It's shoujo. Absolutely generic shoujo. Worth the read if you're a shoujo fan, but I don't think there was much to set it apart if you're not.

I don't want to finish this entry and have to pay attention to My Immortal... don't make me!
