Your moment of mokushiroku for today

Fanboys, femmefans, otaku of all ages, listen up.

Many of you are depressed and fearful. Quit watching the evening news and brooding over poltics.

Others are depressed and lonely. Life is like that. You can help youself by not lusting after bishonen and supermodels; the former are all gay and the latter have vacuum between the ears. Study the lesson provided to you by the unfortunate Wakaba Shinohara. She lusted after the extremely bishie captain of the kendo team, got him, and then lost him to a well-connnected witch from India, completely overlooking the childhood sweetheart who could have made her equally happy without all the heartbreak.

Yeah, we all want the hot-bodied, passionate lover who will sweep us off our feet and make our lives complete so we can drive off into the sunset together as the cool music plays. Unfortunately, that only happens in shojo anime and the movies, and sometimes not even there. Deal with it.

you know, I really needed to hear that.

I wish I knew my high school sweetheart. Come to think of it, I don't think I had a high school sweetheart.

I hope it helped. It was a reminder to myself as well.

I did. She married a petroleum geologist from Houston shortly before finishing her master's degree, went into practice there as a rehab physician after getting her MD at Baylor, had a boy child and lived happily ever after, AFAIK. Nets out the same way, maybe easier on your end.

In case I forgot to mention it, see you tomorrow at Pho 79 for some of that awesome Vietnamese soup!

YAY! You get to meet my weird as hell school friends, too.

You know where it is, right? Just about a block south of 25th on nicollet. See ya there. We'll prolly be there between 11:30 and 12:00. I hope we can get the big table.

Oh, yeah. I lived on the other side of the neighborhood (near Bloomington & Lake) for almost two decades...I could probably find it blindfolded.

I just want you to know, in case you were worried, that I have never, ever, ever in my life lusted for Akio. Or Saionji. Or anyone like those people.

Now in high school, I did briefly lust for a very handsome blue-eyed boy who was in honors classes and was also an athlete on the football team. However, before I got up the nerve to tell him, he suddenly stopped coming to school, and months later we heard he died of a brain tumor. Yes, real life is horrid, and sometimes far more dramatic than shoujo anime could ever be.

Beyond that, real life-objects of my desire have generally tended to be either shy, geeky, soft-eyed, sweet-hearted fanboys or quiet, but manipulative, pouty-lipped women (who also had their fair amount of geekyness and sweet-heartedness going for them). These days the only one I really want is a sweet, sassy, humorous freethinker who isn't afraid to tell me how he or she feels. Shampoo-commercial-like hair and willowy bodies PURELY optional. HOPEFULLY that isn't a fairytale.

In the meantime, I will live life and enjoy it--because despite all the dark things, death, and politics, there's a lot of wonderful stuff and people out there too--too many things to enjoy to get depressed about the other stuff.

And chocolate chip cookies, which may actually be my one true love. ^^

Shiori and I are very glad to hear this. Well, I am, anyway; I'm sure she can make her Prince aware of her feelings on the subject. OTOH, this is Takatsuki-san we're talking about... ^_^

Nah. We're out there. ^^

Yay! Ganbatte, DQ!

I think I fit in the depressed and lonely category. And do secret lust after bishounen. But I don't see how this'll change. I'll probably never get a boyfreind and die a miserable virgin.

I guess you'll have to start trying to find guys' inner bishonen and bring it out. ^^

Everybody gets depressed and lonely from time to time. The trick is to keep trudging toward the shiny happy destination you're working towards and not get all broody about the mud all over your shoes. This has been your moment of pseudo-Zen BS for the day, because smacking people in the face while yelling "KINDNESS!" at them is so not me. :S

I'm not sure I entirely get what you meant, but it sounds comforting. Optimism does help depression; but I'm usually a pessimistic person who is often happy without reason.

Well, as long as it was comforting, then the details aren't too important. ^_^
