Mmm.. I love carbonated fruit punch flavoured sodas. Unlike many of my American compatriots, I like to treat sodas like desserts, something sweet that should be consumed in moderation, and enjoyed thoroughly.
While working on projects, I'll put a dvd on repeat, or watch anime series online. There is something comforting about the television being on - the movement and sound make me feel less alone.
I've recently watched through the current episodes of Hellsing Ultimate, which I admit is one of my absolute favourite animated shows ever. Its the glowing red eyes, I think. Mmmm.
Twilight vampires play baseball and go to highschool. Hellsing vampires violently obliterate other vampires and flesh-eating ghouls using very large guns. I get turned on by the latter.
As one can guess from my post, I am spending tonight working on things while watching anime and drinking soda.
Also something of interest I'd like to share: The bird of Hermes
led me to the Ripley Scrowle, an alchemical writing/collection of illustrations from the 15th century.
I am fascinated by ancient texts, and would just about die from happiness to see the Voynich Manuscript
(I secretly think it is a journal/diary, but nobody else really sees it that way). It can be viewed online here
And my love for cryptozoology has me yearning to see pages from the Prodigiorum Ac Ostentorums Chronicon as well, but that is just for the pictures. Haha!
I also love the whimsical, and fairly modern Codex Seraphinianus
by Luigi Serafini (Linguists have broken down the name to mean “A collection of wisdom that is a message from Serafini's rectum." In the colloquial, “Talking out of my ass." - It’s probably just a coincidence but still a brilliant joke if true). And it is on my list of books I want for my future library.
