1. Just watched this week's Doctor Who. HOSHITOMGAAAAAGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

2. And next week: Derek Jacobi! Squee!

3. There's a floater in my right eye driving me nuts. If it doesn't go away in a few days, I'll get it checked out just to make sure it's not OMG DETACHED RETINA, but it's most likely just a normal random floater. But it likes to sit in the front of my eye when I'm looking at a white screen, which is when it's noticeable, and pretend like it's an out-of-focus fly on the monitor. Luckily, it's only noticeable when I'm looking at a white screen. Unluckily, due to the nature of my job, I'm looking at a white screen most of the day. (and considering that it's been there several days and there's no loss of vision, it's most likely not a detached retina. :D)

From one comment thread on an entry in clairvoyantwank:

Lets just say when they decided to make an anime based off of Romeo and Juliet they turned Juliet into a cross-dresser who masquerades as a vigilante called the Red Whirlwind, and since she's the sole remaining member of the Capulet family, she's leading a resistance against the Montagues who rules over the land with an iron fist.


Er...if she's the only Capulet, how do we get the whole fighting families thing?

And is Mercutio a catboy?


The rest of her family was killed in the prologue by Romeo's father (her father was Duke of the land until that point). For the past 14 years Juliet has been living in secret as a boy named Odin because it's known that a daughter of the Capulet family survived. When she turns 16, her real idenity gets revealed to her but right before that she meant and fell in love with Romeo. As she struggles with her feelings, Juliet eventually decides to lead a rebellion against Romeo's father to reclaim her rightful position (and then I don't know what happens since only 8 episodes have been subbed so far).

Mercuito isn't a catboy but he's a waste. He's been in only something like two scenes at this point. Benvolio is a cutie though (if this wasn't Romeo and Juliet, I would swear he and Romeo were in love). And Tybalt is awesome! They should create an entire series around him.

It says a lot about anime that I automatically assumed it was real, which of course it is: Romeo x Juliet, airing now, I believe.
