1. We like mecha anime (we just spent the evening watching Gundam Seed, so it's on my mind). Not all of it. Some of it is dumb, but then, some of every genre is dumb. We recently came to the conclusion that anyone who is a fan of Star Wars and anime really has no excuse to be biased against mecha anime. I mean, technically, there's a lot of mecha in Star Wars. It's just not humanoid. And being humanoid makes Gundams (for example) that much cooler, because then they can have sword fights. They're practically having light saber battles in their mecha! How cool is that?
2. We like being tagged. It means someone remembers we exist, which is something that's sometimes been pretty rare for us in the past three years or so. But I'm still deathly afraid of tagging other people, so I think I may again refrain from doing so.
3. We just got a new calendar. We thought of printing one ourselves, because then it would be more personalized and awesome, but then we realized we hate searching for pictures on the internet. And then we didn't have time, so it all worked out. The one we have now is a national parks calendar. It was between that one and foxes (so cute!), but while we have a difficult time resisting adorable animals, we needed something with more color. The picture for January is El Capitan in Yosemite, which at first is awesome, because Yosemite's like California's awesomest national park, and we're California girls. But at second, it sucks, because that's where Steve proposed to Mom.
4. While I'm mentioning things I've mentioned before, since there are new people on our friends list since we first mentioned this, we got a special message from Shunichi Miyamoto and Miyu Irino, the singer of the opening theme to DN Angel and the kid who played Daisuke. They were doing an internet radio show to promote DN Angel CDs, and it took e-mails, so we wrote in asking if they could speak English. We don't know if Irino-kun was just really excited to hear from American fans, or to have a greeting that wasn't time specific and easier to say than Ohakonbanchi wa. He used my "ハロー！" again in the pre-recorded thing where they stole Rie Tanaka. But they each introduced themselves, and then Irino-kun asked Miyamoto-kun to give us (specifically Alethea-san and Athena-san) a message in English! きゃっ♥
Amazingly, all the backnumbers are still up at the Victor website, and can be found here. Our e-mail is read toward the beginning of the 9/25 show, by Irino-kun himself! きゅん♥ (Though I'm a little embarrassed because I think I messed up the Japanese in one place.)
But we haven't figured out how to save the files to our computer, probably because Victor Entertainment would rather we not.
5. As we sit here listening to our Goku album, the image that keeps appearing in my head is that of Kira Yamato from Gundam Seed. I guess that's what happens when you're too into voice actors, and you watch Gundam Seed before listening to a Goku album. The weird thing is it works so well for almost all of the songs that the image doesn't go away. I didn't think Kira and Goku were so similar. Because they're...not, really. They have the same hair color, ish.
When I do imagine Goku singing Going, I imagine him dancing around on a stage, kind of boy band style, and I would love to do karaoke to that song like that, but I have no idea what the choreography would actually look like.
6. We love talking about ourselves but have a difficult time coming up with things to say about ourselves. So we love it when people ask us about ourselves, but then we feel bad because we're not so good at asking people about themselves, and it's not fair for us to hog all the attention (something we learned from having two sisters constantly competing for the spotlight). And of course there's always the concern that things we can talk about for hours aren't quite as fascinating to our audience. Oh well.
As I mentioned earlier, I think we're not going to tag anyone, but if anyone on our friends list hasn't been tagged for this and wants to be, feel free to say we tagged you!
