Sometimes, you just have to make loud noises.

Our home teacher didn't take us to FHE this week. Normally this wouldn't be much of a problem, especially because there were rumors to the effect of some kind of "Mormon dating game" to be filmed, and we really weren't very interested, but I think we're at a point where if we don't have human contact, one or both of us will explode. And that's just way too much of a hassle to clean up. Fortunately, our visiting teachers should be coming over tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'm updating LJ for the third time today because it's a good way of tricking myself into thinking I have human contact. And I have been making the weirdest typos lately. I even spelled Hakkai with a Z! Twice!! I blame the lack of human contact, or contect, as my fingers have been wanting to type tonight for some odd reason.

And in case anyone's curious, it looks like this: Hakkzi.

I knew Saiyuki mode wouldn't be long in returning. Today we revisited Reload 5, and were reminded of how much Hazel needs to be beaten in the head. One of these days... one of these days... "Couldn't y'all tell I was bluffin'?" Oooooooh, he's just like Steve! Also, we decided he talks like he's from the deep South, because he seems like one of those plantation owning type guys. And he needs an accent, because he's got one of the strongest Kansai dialects we've ever seen. (When you're reading a dialect, you see it, right?)

Speaking of accents, I'm totally in love with Shanks's English dub voice. I might even venture to say that I like it more than his Japanese voice. It really must be the accent, and probably has something to do with the fact that it probably sounds younger. Of course, we haven't heard Shanks speaking Japanese, but we have heard that voice actor in two different roles (he's in Ueki no Housoku!), and both of them were a little too gravelly for my taste. So maybe the Japanese voice is a better Shanks voice, but the English voice is sexier. We'll go with that.

Also, due to various strange circumstances, we joined Netflix, despite not having any money to spare, and so we were able to watch Somday's Dreamers. We caught some of it at AX, since it was one of the things they were showing subtitled on a night when we were looking for stuff to do, and decided we'd like to watch the rest of it. It's a nice, calm, heartwarming series. And it has Junichi Suwabe playing a really...nice guy. Perhaps not all that unusual, but since most of the stuff we'd heard him in had him as kind of the biker type (Greed in FMA, Sting in Gundam Seed Destiny), or just plain evil (Seymour in FFX, Cain in Trinity Blood (okay, so we haven't heard him as Seymour, and we don't know that Cain is evil, but still)), it was strange to us. Kera's the best. That's all I have to say. But he's not Junichi Suwabe... we need to look up Hiroshi Iida...
