Me and My Awesomeness
Hi, everyone! Welcome to my LJ/DW! Some of you who have been on the internet since the dawn of time may know me as Daimira, champion procrastinator and neglecter of assorted websites, shrines, and more abandoned blogs than can be counted. That hardly matters, because I'm awesome, anyway.

I'm a scientist, writer, and government dog all in one tiny 5'0" package that loves dogs, water sports, and crazy insane extreme activities that often involve a lot of falling (or trying not to).

What I'll Probably Be Talking About
Expect a lot of entries about books and music. I might post the occasional book review, usually 2 years or so AFTER a book has reached fame, haha, by which point it has become overrated, and then I will likely just say "Hey, this book is OVERRATED." I enjoy the fantasy and young adult (which is basically just fantasy, anyway) genres, as well as the occasional horror and literary fiction.

I might also post a CD/artist review every now and then (this may actually be up to date). I lean more toward indie pop/ alternative pop and folk, although I do listen to "harder" stuff. However, I am not an indie snob -- kinda hard to be when your favorite artist EVER is half-immersed in mainstream pop. You can check out my Last.FM profile if you want to know more.

I also like a lot of Western TV shows like Chuck, Psych, Monk, House, Buffy, Angel. I love J/K/C-dramas (in that order), such as Nobuta wo Produce, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, the first Gokusen, Nodame Cantabile, Full House, and Coffee Prince, just to name a few. I also love anime and manga, including Rurouni Kenshin, Ouran High School Host Club, Yakitate!! Japan, Cowboy Bebop, Vision of Escaflowne, and Hayao Miyazaki/ Studio Ghibli films. I may or may not flail at idol groups like NEWS, Arashi, V6, and Tokio. /denial

If you and I share similar interests or are in the same fandom (see above) and usually have conversations, feel free to add me and I'll do my best to add you back as soon as I can. I don't lock many of my entries, though, so if you're just a casual visitor, you're not missing much.

You guys. GUYS. I just accepted an invitation to be the inspirational speaker at a grade school graduation. Why did I say YES? Why am I cursed with an inability to say "no" to people who ask nicely? It's in less than two weeks!

What. Just. Happened.

On the other hand, I don't know who should be more terrified: the sixth graders or me.

Also, most importantly, I have NOTHING TO WEAR.

I am ripping a piece of paper into little squares.

Supervisor: Why are you ripping paper?
Dai: I am ripping my c├ędula. Viva Katipunan!*
Supervisor: o_O?
Supervisor: You're strange.

* The Cry of Pugad Lawin /end history lesson.
** No community tax certificates were harmed. Just a blank piece of paper.

 I'm only here because both Twitter and Tumblr keep going down and won't let me post and I needed somewhere to say that Strawberry Night is amazing.  I have high expectations for the rest of this drama.

Also, Takeuchi Yuko is awesome.  But that is not news.  It is merely an irrefutable fact that has been and always will be true.  Thank you.

(This post may turn up in my Tumblr three times, since the site seems buggy.  I do not care.)

Because of all the fireworks everywhere, poor thing. So doubtless I will be spending Christmas Eve comforting a frightened dog and trying to stop him from climbing onto my bed (and lying on me -_-;)

I hope you all have a better day than my dog, though! XD
