Seems that a wholeclass of 26 kids in the Japanese quarter of Düsseldorf is infected with pig flu.
Now, [profile] yamasagi and me are considering skipping Japan Day on Saturday.
I don't want to take a risk like that just for an AnimagiC warmup.
Dunno yet, but we'll keep an eye on the enws and things.
I certainly won't listen to someone involved with the city, who has an interest in people coming to Japan Day because it means profit, if they say there's no danger.
The TV station that'll start airing "Fringe" on German TV on Monday actually recruited its news anchor to do fake promotion news clips. Wow, that's what I call spitting in the face of your profession.
I can hardly express my disgust.

Anyway. Now, [ profile] thefridayfive.

1. Do you believe in good and/or bad luck?
Yeah, kind of.

2. Do you believe there is one man/woman luckier than all the rest?
I hope there isn't because that wouldn't be fair, now would it?

3. When was the last time you considered yourself lucky?
This afternoon, when Kai told me he'll give me a ride to the theater on Sunday <3

4. What is the most unlucky thing to ever happen to you?
Being born with certain prerequisties to develop the psychic problems that are now major (negative) influences in my life.

5. Where do you think luck (good or bad) comes from?
I usually attribute it to either fate or chance, but I don't really know...

There's been another school shooting in Germany today.
I think it happenbed in the morning, in a small town close to Stuttgart (southwest of the country).
Apparently, a seventeen-year old boy entered his former school and used one of his father's weapons (a Beretta pistol, IIRC) to murder15 teachers and classmates before killing himself after a shootout with the police.
Can't wait before they start blaming everything on movies and videogames, as they always do.
Hell yeah :>

Stephen would've been even cooler, IMO, but hey. I'll take any chance to sit in front of the TV in the middle of the night *lol*

Did I say that price was unrealistic? Well, I take it back ^_^

This is the first time I really saved some serious money using that best offer function. Usually, the sellers send back return offers that are only like, 30 cents below the BIN price. To me, that renders the whole thing utterly useless.
Ah well. Paid last night and now I hope he'll arrive before the weekend. Wanna cuddle my Jack =)

Hehe. I just had a look at that Spears woman's so-called performance at that awards show.
Well, I suppose it could be filed under comedy.
Too bad they didn't show more of the audience trying to keep straight faces XDD

I think "Summer night breezer", along with maybe ""Shadow over the world is the only decent song on access' new album apart from "Hitomi no tsubasa", which doesn't count cuz it'd been a single before "Binary engine" (the album) came out. Geez. whats up with ASAKURA these days?
Too bad. But then, there's still Granrodeo's "Ride on the Edge" if I want a really good Jpop/Jrock CD. That band is just amazing, period.

Am using Deepest Sender now.
Too bad it doesn't support crossposting. What's worse, the people behind it are not planning to implement it because they think it's mainly being used to spam people and abuse the servers. Uh... reality check, pls? =_=
More copy/paste, but at least, this time, it's fully integrated within Firefox (which, of course, includes the same awesome crash recovery function) and has a much nicer interface. Cold be worse ;)

Also, the latest iPhone goings on once again put me off of my iPod plans - hopefully, for a long time.
So, they cut the price by one third after just six weeks. And now, they give out $100 coupons for their own shop? Pardon my French, but that's just fuckin' insane.
The media say that this is a half-assed solution. Well, I disagree. It's not even quarter-assed.
Heck, by giving out $100 coupons, instead of apologizing to their customers who have effectively been betrayed, all they do is earn more money. Didn't it occur to them that after this, many people will never want to buy an Apple product again?
Amusing fact: Something very, very similar happened to Nintendo in the late Eighties, but that's beside the point.
I know, many of you own and love Apple things. Which is okay and I respect that. But I don't support them in the slightest, and hopefully, never will.
I'm just writing this to clarify that my opinion about them is not something like blind hate, it's the way they do things that pisses me off again and again.
