Apartment people have been notified of the water-running-down-the-wall issue, and as the place has recently been bought out by some other company, I made sure to inform them that this was the same apartment that flooded last March so they'd take it damn seriously. :)

In yuletide news, I'm actually fairly happy with my story as it stands, but I now have to gird my loins and face that fact that it needs a title, and I have no idea what to call it. Aarg.

04:44 pm - Oh yeah...

rachelmanija and oyceter have been watching Gundamn Wing* so you don't have to and reporting back on the CRACK and the CRAZY and the SPACE MUSHROOMS and the DEATH WISHES and the PINEAPPLE.

Warning: do not click if you don't want to be spoiled for them.

oyceter's Gundam Wing tag

* I am leaving that typo.

05:00 pm - Man, I wish I could use this error message...

Most of the librarians who read this probably already know about the Warrior Librarian, from which site this error message comes.

06:57 pm - Found poetry

In my random websearching I stumbled across this page, about the foliage at a shrine in Japan, that was obviously translated with an online translator. But the individual picture captions turned out quite poetic. (If you're on a slow modem, beware: clicking on a picture loads the entire thing and it tends to be about half a meg).

Anyway, all they require is breaking it up into proper stanzas:

The way of the Nagaoka Tenman-gu azalea

It arrived in Nagaoka Tenman-gu
early morning. Then,
what was seen
was an azalea
like a crimson ghost.

It is surrounded by the azalea

The crimson azalea
was put on this side
and the back,
and a picture of it was taken.
It is touch that the
completely red monster lies.

As green as blue and red

The blue of Sky,
the red of an azalea,
and fresh green green
It was good
when the blue sky
was beautiful
to a slight degree.

09:51 pm - The cow of the usage of God

I've been poking a bit more about the machine-translated site I posted about in my previous entry, and just found this one, which I like a lot. I think it would best be done as a spoken piece.

The cow of the usage of God

It is the cow made into the usage of God
of Kitano Tenmangu.
the Michizane Sugawara public
which is festival God although it is ?
about why the usage of God
of Kitano Tenmangu is a cow -- cow Toshio --
from [ that the day of the rare cow
of the moon of a cow
and it were also born
to the time of the cow ]
It seems that he is the usage of God
by using a cow as a good-luck article.
