I never thought I'd say this, but I really wish I had stayed up until 10 AM in chatrooms tonight.

Back in (?)

Okay, so fuck. I really hate the phrase "slippery slope," but it's so appropriate at times. For some reason, I got to thinking about Japanese cutie (incoming naked picture link) Yuu Kitajima (pronounced like the english word "You," which is why it's usually romanized as such even though this breaks somewhat accepted standards for romanization). I was searching around for some pictures I could post on my Sailor girl site now that I've got things shored up (for now) without much luck. I have a photobook of Yuu, and so that got me to thinking about photobooks. And Megami magazine. And, well, it spiraled out of control from there. I fired up Mozilla with Japanese input running, which I haven't done in months. I started hitting the usual suspects... Amazon Japan. JpopHelp. Fe-sponsor J-List. Crap.

Alright, well, it's not out of control -- yet. I only bought a couple of issues of Megami, but that's still not good. Look, one of them had some of the girls from Negima on the cover, so I had to buy it, okay? Then I was on Amazon Japan and I saw that my old "shit to buy at a later date" list had been cleared out, but it's re-populated with a few items now. At J-List, I saw a bunch of stuff like this. I have the 2004 book, and it's neat.

I know, I know. "What about the house? And the car? The fucking car, man?" Well, here's the problem. I got a raise at work. That's really all you need to know.

Okay, I don't think it's going to be that bad, but it's problematic if I can relax the spending controls. Especially since they're already kinda relaxed. But I can keep this under control, really. I only spent $35 tonight when it could have been way worse. Maybe I can just get ETP and BOETP to cut me a birthday check to help fund a photobook order. It's not like I'm going to start selling blood and organs to feed the habit. JpopHelp doesn't carry the schoolgirl magazines I was buying back then, so I can't be picking that habit up again. Except that, fuck, I just ran an eBay search, and...

Not so good.

katarina is bush's fault

Okay, so I'm guessing they meant "Katrina" and not "Katarina." Even still, with how much I hate Bush, I never would have come up with this. I was like, what kind of dumbfuck would come up with this notion? Looking through the Google searches, I saw that it might be related to Michael Moore, and suddenly all made sense. Moore came out with this this week where, yeah, he kinda implies that Bush is at fault with the whole global warming thing. That's... Quite a stretch. I also liked the line about how people are going to try and politicize Katrina and use it against Bush.

Yeah, I'm soured on Michael Moore, too. Have been for awhile, just like the rest of the left. I still want gay marriage and hate Jesus, though, so I can never truly roll with the conservatives, unless of course if I get a gun to go with my BMW.

Okay, so it looks like it's good that we didn't pay for The Onion's "premium" service since they now have their entire archive online for free. That means I have easy access to articles like the one on McDonald's from the very first issue I ever saw. Now I can quickly find my favorite articles, like "Nobody Really Understands Me" by Fermat's Last Theorem and "Haggar Physicists Develop 'Quantum Slacks'." Even some of the greatest full issues, like the post-2000 election coverage. Nice.

Of course, I would have mentioned the post-9/11 issue, which should be here, but the link is fucked up and leads to a later issue.

EDIT: Someone at The Onion got their shit together and fixed the link to the post-9/11 issue.

Stop smoking without willpower!

I think this tells you everything you need to know about America (aside from the fact that it's full of Mexicans).

nerdy boy sells virginity on ebay

Whoa, dude, you had better set a reserve on that, because you definitely don't want to risk that going for less than it's worth. Actually, I think my main worry would just be that the bidding could get out of hand -- a fruit so sweet and rare is bound to be in heavy demand. I'll tell 'ya, if I were a woman, I know I'd be getting wet at the thought.

The really sad thing? I'll bet a kid could get some bets off of this. Granted, the winning lucky "lady" will be some middle-aged guy named Steve, or a priest. But at least the nerdy boy will be loved.
