I can has a Karupin?

Bits and pieces from life!

First of all, rather belatedly the dotmoon folks sent an adorable little award image for 'A Traditional Ninja Romance' winning in the Prince of Tennis category this year.  Yay! 

It was all personalised and stuff!  This kind of thing impresses the heck out me.  Thanks again everyone!

In other exciting news, [info]silverymare  wrote the most AMAZING prompt fill for my totally stupid prompt over here!  (It's flocked though, but I think a good portion of our friends lists overlap so hopefully that's okay.)  Aslkfjslkjfsf even worked in the 'ghost who walks' references and TezRyo!  Only Tenipuri can deliver such amazing crack.  This one was incredibly awesome too, for different reasons.  Comic books are on the brain!  You're so generous P-chan.  You should stop humouring me so much, I might develop more personality problems. :P

Also, there's this cat that's been desperately trying to adopt itself into our household for the past few months, and my flatmate finally managed to get some good photos of her!  Doesn't she look SO MUCH like Karupin? 


Here's another one where we distracted her with kibble so we could get inside the house.  She's obsessed with getting inside the house.  I don't know why.  There's nothing that great in there.  It's like she thinks if she's inside, we'll have to keep her and give her delicious treats all the time or something.  But our Landlord doesn't allow pets.  :( 

Probably good, because it already feels like we've catnapped her from the neighbours.  This picture's my favourite though.  She's doing what she does every day - making evil plans for getting inside:

That said, there's way too much wildlife fighting over our backyard these days.  Between Miss Karupin-lookalike, there's also a Calico called Peanut (according to her collar) and a black cat we've nicknamed Dr Satan who is both very strong and affectionate and I swear when he rubs against your legs he could push you over.  Also a pair of bush turkeys.  And a flock of fruit bats who screech from sunset to 2 in the morning.  They sound like they're constantly dying.

 Aside from that, life has been a mix of endless Dissidia-playing (woot, Cloud and Sephiroth at Level100, working on Zidane next!) and work kicking my ass.  Anyone else have any cool news?

CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN! (Has a huge longing to go and read all of you fics again, but hah, ESSAY. ;__;)

♥♥♥~ Bwhaha, see if I keep writing for you, eventually one of the big projects will be done! /strange reasoning

YOU HAVE A KARUPIN IN YOUR BACKYARD. I'm really surprised you haven't cuddled him? to pieces! That last photo too, it's really an evil, scheming kitty. :3 (Uh, what are bush turkeys?)

Attempts to retrieve my bike failed. I think the universe doesn't want me to get wheels. :P

Oh, I HAVE cuddled her to death, don't you worry. :3

Bush turkeys! I guess you don't have them in WA? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Brush-turkey

Noooo, your bike! D: What went wrong?

I just realised I haven't replied to you in ages. But hah, we don't have bush turkeys here! Before that wiki article, I've never ever seen one before. We've got peacocks on the university campus through. >:D

/sigh Well, last week we paid for it, but didn't pick it up because we ran out of time. And now that it's finally in my living room, I have to find a mechanic to put it together. -_-

How did the roommate problems go?

Oh and on top of all that, I think your reccing has gotten me some new friends. Lol. I like meeting new people, but haha, so not expecting some of your f-list to start friending me. You have pulling power, Sin! I just imagined you with Tezuka's zone powers. >:D And I'm pretty sure it's thanks to you since I really don't know how they found me otherwise?
Oct. 19th, 2009 09:19 am (UTC)
Peacocks! *__* That's way better than lousy ugly bush turkeys building giant nests of mulch!

Roommate problems weren't any big deal, I just had to help out with something, sorry for vanishing so abruptly. :)

Ha ha, really? Awesome. And yet, our mutual friends haven't really changed? Maybe you're selling yourself short, P-chan! ;)

Ninja Rmance was a spectacular story... who knows, you might win 2 years in a row if you felt like writing another TezuRyo story 0=)
*hints hints nudge nudge*

ZOMG, you have your own Karupin! *__*
She's gorgeous... dunno why she strikes as a female to me (that cat, not Karupin XD)
And Dr Satan, lol! XD

F-locked for me ;___;

Oct. 11th, 2009 02:08 pm (UTC)
Nooo.... I'm bugging her to post it up elsewhere, I'll link you if she does!

And this Karupin is indeed a 'she' - we checked. :P

Heee, it has been a while since I posted a TezRyo longfic, hasn't it? *scratches head* I started a couple, but wound up abandoning them. Maybe I'll revisit them to see if they can be salvaged or something.

(...but would your landlord even know?)

(You propose interesting and intriguing ideas).

That word has been ruined IMPROVED forever!

KITTY!! She's so cute! (My aunt and uncle just adopted a Himalayan kitten! :D It's like having a mini Karupin around.)

Hey, our Clouds and Sephiroths are at the same level! But I bet you could still kick my butt. XP I'm really horrible at playing it. I'm working on levelling up Squall right now. I think he's around 60? :/

And HEY Tokyo Game Show just went down not long ago (or is still going down). More info on FFXIII universe games should be coming around soon! I'm excited for the Versus voice-actors announcements.
Oct. 12th, 2009 11:09 am (UTC)
Ha, who knows? I use pretty cheap tactics that I'm sure a human AI could savage rather easily. I'm mining for battlegen to make ultimate weapons at the moment, when I really should be getting some of those Level20 characters further up the ladder.

Yeah, Tokyo Game Show, over for another year! No news on FFVersusXIII though. New trailer for FFXIII main, but I actually liked that trailer less. For some reason it used one of those generic pop tracks that's used in just about EVERY J-DRAMA EVER. *does not affect my jittery excitement for the release at all*. Relase dates, too! FFXIII in December for Japan, English release in American Spring!

OMG SINN-SAN. That cat resembles my cat! Sadly, my cat's name isn't Karupin; it's Shiratama. (I have another cat named Karupin, of whom I don't have pictures of, because she insists on darting away from the camera.)

They might be a little big so here is one picture, and here is another one. He's still in his summer coat, but winter's coming soon, and I'll make sure I catch photos of him all nice and white. >"DDD
Oct. 12th, 2009 11:10 am (UTC)
\o/ Shiratama! I remember you posting photos before! Obviously you need to post MORE of them! The internet has not yet reached its quota of cat pictures! We have to hurry!
Oct. 13th, 2009 03:09 am (UTC)
Congrats on the win! What a cute award xDDD

asfasdlhalskhdals KARUPIIIIIIIIN ;A; so cute omg >A< ♥ I only wish cats would come visit our place, but alas ~
Oct. 13th, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
Don't give up! I hear delicious cat treats are a good lure. ;)
Oct. 14th, 2009 01:03 am (UTC)
Hahaha, I got Cloud and Seph to 100, too. Then my bro deleted the game off the PSP so we'd stop wasting our time. :O If I still had it, I would've done Squall next...

Cute kitty~~
Oct. 14th, 2009 09:27 am (UTC)
D: Your brother is the WORST EVER. Last time one of my brothers deleted a save game there was a prank war to end all other prank wars. Seriously, I hope you're planning some hardcore revenge!

Hi! Thanks for delurking. Especially with such valuable cat knowledge! \o/ I think you might be right - part seal tabby point, part Himalayan, ALL ADORABLE.
