A blog about cute or interesting things

Update for like the first time in… 2 years…

May 7th, 2014 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

So, I got a job at the end of 2011, I think it was.
I haven’t really been interested in blogging and the internet in general for some time.
I just still prefer to read books. I do not really like e-books. Or the internet. Or the way cellphones are now. Yikes.
I promise I can use all these things, I just don’t like how much people rely on them all. I don’t want to be left behind when everyone else can do all sorts of things, but I still don’t like it all much.
It seems like a lot of it wastes time and stops people from developing proper social skills, face to face.
But I was impressed by the new phone-wristwatch technology I saw on the news the other day. I predicted that. It will go further. Implanted into the body. People will want that. Anyway, let’s wait and see how far we will all go.
Take care, everyone! If I get back into Sanrio I will start posting and playing HKO again sometime… will likely have to start over.

Update in general…x

May 6th, 2011 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

So I stopped playing HKO for a while… but that’s mostly because I don’t have any friends who play it. They all play other stuff.

I have been playing Pokemon Black and I have to say several things.

Firstly, Cheren is CUTE!
cheren_beru.gif
It had Bianca in this pic but I cut her out…
Love love love Cheren.

Secondly, I wrote a long post and supposedly saved it but this blog sux and wiped it all…
Oh well let’s try again.

Thirdly, recommend Pokemon Black, even though it feels rushed for the first half of the game. I wanna fight Plasma and N again!!!!!

Fourthly, stop dissing Audino and calling it a troll, it gives lots of exp and is way easier to catch than Chansey ever was.
There.

Lastly, totally non-Pokemon related, got me some awesome figurines of Evangelion, Ranma and FFX characters.
They are expensive and not so easy to get in New Zealand. I am becoming the true otaku… but I prefer to just call myself a geek. One day this stuff will lose popularity, and then it will all be ME again!
I remember 15 years ago, things were nicer then, when I was a lonely geek girl, trying and struggling to get my fix… no snotty teens reading manga all over the place, and talking about stories with having no knowledge of character and plot development…
Stupid kids. Quoting the latest manga or anime does not make you intelligent or knowledgeable.
Nor do you know what the heck you’re talking about half the time anyway.
You pick up and drop whatever you like, and soon you will turn on anime and manga like you turned on your 5 minute favourite pop star. Shallow!
I have loved this stuff since before you were born… it pains me to have to share it with you. Games, manga and anime actually mean something to people like me. So don’t get in our way.

Well, as you may guess some kids annoyed me lately. I will just have to get over it.
Thank you blogs, for accepting my rants.

Bye

30th bday been and gone.

March 3rd, 2011 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

I had my 30th birthday in February, and I went shopping. I think I am finally mature in that I bought a stuffed toy cat and then I realised I actually don’t want any more toys. I am glad. I am a bit slow to get to that point but at least now I know I don’t have this soft toy addiction anymore.
I am a little sad to be 30, unmarried and jobless. But I have a few friends (which I never thought I could get) and also I am healthy. I am living in a nice flat which can be a bit lonely because these people aren’t my friends… so it’s hard to make conversation. Also my joblessness is a bit annoying to them, I think.
However I really want a job, and I’m not a quitter so I am sure I will get one soon. Actually there are a lot of jobless people in my country. I think expectations are too high from prospective employers. Education and training is expensive here, so most people can’t afford it, and employers don’t want entry-level employees who they would have to train. So there are a lot of people like me who want to work and are willing to be trained on the job but employers won’t give us a chance. Even the supermarkets aren’t hiring.
I have applied for a lot of jobs last year and will apply for many more this year also. I have already been applying, of course! It being March already!
Well, I would really love to work with unemployed people and help cheer them up and encourage them. That would be a good job. Also, there are a lot of people who don’t fit customer service work and I would like for them to get help. There simply aren’t enough jobs. There are also people who have mental issues or illness who don’t fit the usual job-seeker profile. They should be given work they can do at home or in a factory or something.
The truth is, a lot of small businesses fail in this country. So do some bigger businesses, like factories in smaller towns. So people lose work, even if they have been working in a place for years.
I would love a job I could do for my lifetime. I would be happy to feel some job security.
Enough! I am getting depressed.
It is so easy to get depressed when you have no job and nothing to do all day but look for work and wait for calls. I don’t like having nothing to occupy my mind. I need to work. I think most people do, it is inbuilt within us to need a purpose or some work. Most people can’t relax for long, needing work to keep their body and mind occupied.
I am one of those people, and it has nothing to do with my intelligence (although my I.Q. is apparently above average). I think I.Q. tests are inconsequential, btw. And even if they aren’t… what good is intelligence without a purpose? That’s like having a good car that you only use to drive to the supermarket once a week. Intelligence without drive is useless.
So that’s another thing I want to do. Try to find a purpose for my existence.
Well, I meant to post something about … something else. I can’t believe I got sidetracked and forgot. What was it now…I simply cannot remember!
Hah!
Well, have a good day.
Remember us jobless ones.
God Bless you.

Cute!

LadyHawke fact

I really like her music.
I also like her look. And I just found out she has Aspergers Syndrome which is a mild form of Autism! So does (Satoshi Tajiri?), the creator of Pokemon. Two awesome people who didn’t let problems stop them from bringing amazing talent to the world!

Busy, busy, busy

November 24th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

Well as you may have guessed from the title, I have been very busy lately.
I hurt my back in September and so cannot use the computer for long.
I have also had various things to do… Anyway hope to be back blogging soon!
Nobody reads this as far as I know… but just in case I figured I’d post this.
Bye for now!

Wow I’m tired but manga review!

October 26th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

The Bride of Ardarshan (Adarushan no Hanayome) is a great little two volume manga I read recently, and it is really good. The main character is dim but likeable. His brother is surprisingly complex and the bride (as titled) is really sweet and more complete a character than many I have seen. It is a collaboration by Kei Amekawa, Nori Kazato, and Sae Momoki. I think this could explain the good character development. I have found that in general, compilation efforts are good.
I will give it a 6 (nobody ever gets a 7 I think) because they did their best but the art was not too distinctive. It was all very pleasant though, I will enjoy reading it again. The brevity helped a lot. The dialogue was good too. It seemed a lot like an rpg at certain points but this was probably deliberate.
My fave character is in fact the main guy, the brother of the king. I really liked him.
My fave female … they were all good I suppose. But it was really about the guys in this story, so many good male characters. All Bishonen as usual, but that is beside the point. Most stories have lotsa Bishies. Ok so I liked the plot, I liked the development of the characters and how it wasn’t a serious loli-fest or anything. Also the snow story was really cute. No ecchi, thank God. Also did not rush things or so a sequel when she gets older… which I was kinda surprised at but also pleased.
Ok that about wraps it up, thanks everyone, you’ve been great!
Btw I hated One Piece so I didn’t want to read it but I got bored so am reading it after all. The back stories of Usopp and then Nami and then Chopper all touched my heart, esp Chopper… I love him so much! Not too interested in Sanji, Princess Vivi, Luffy or Zoro’s stories. But I will say my fave character over-all is Chopper and then Zoro and then I guess everyone else. I’m kinda intrigued by Nico Robin’s character. Hate the fighting and stuff (it’s kinda dull… no much skill involved at all, even with Zoro) but like the diff countries they go to. I also like Su the kumo-kitsune. SO CUTE! Almost as cute as Chopper. Right, gonna keep reading, my friend says it just gets better. I hope so cause the fighting is dull.
Saw this at a forum, had to put it up here LOL

oh yeah! X3 Hilarious!
Bye everyone!

Gaming update

October 18th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

I hurt my back last month and it is still not the same, getting better or worse whenever it seems to feel like it.
But because of that I was able to almost finish Pokemon SoulSilver.
I love my DS Lite… no DSi for me! The DS Lite is wayyyy cuter and more compact.
If I want to record sounds or take photos I have a digital camera. Gaming is gaming! Consoles are consoles! General technology is still too immature (?) to combine everything satisfactorily for me.
I have beaten 15 out of 16 gyms and still have to beat my rival, Blue, Giovanni and Red. And maybe Steven Stone? As well as rematch all the gym leaders. I’m slowly collecting phone numbers. I’m getting bored now tho.
Beaten the Elite Four 2x already and it’s dull.
I have the National Dex… nearly got all the Pokemon I can get in game… gotten most of the Sinnoh and Hoenn Pokemon from the game which are easily available with the radio broadcast, got almost all of the Unown, beaten all but two or three records for Pokeathlon.
So borrreeeddddd…
I loved doing contests in Ruby… I wanna buy Emerald.
But the gaming store guy said it’s way old now… which sux because I loved it and I think that’s the first in the Pokemon series I ever fully clocked. I can’t remember what happened to my original Ruby game… (sobs quietly)
Also digging for treasure was fun. I haven’t hardly got to mid-way in my Diamond game, maybe I should go back to that for a while.
Maybe I will… but I kinda wanna finish SoulSilver first. I think I kinda burnt myself out playing it. I spent a lot of hours every day playing for a while there.
I have a lot of watts on the Pokewalker too. I pretty much still take that with me whenever I go out. I average about 10,000 steps a day. So I am slowly unlocking new places.
Anyway I will put up my main Pokemon for SoulSilver.
154.gif
This is Kermit, my starter. I kinda neglected him a bit but now I’m training him up again.
149.gif
This is Aurora, my Dragonite. I am quite fond of her. I think I got her from the pokewalker and trained her up.
176.gif
This is Lotte (after the company, yes) my first hatchling. I kept her in the team because I taught her Flash… and plus she’s pretty strong anyway. She’s kinda my wild card.
181.gif
This is Gladys, one of my faves. I have had her since she was a Mareep…
038.gif
My favourite, my Ninetails, Liulfr (means ‘wolf’ in Old Nordic language I think) I should have named him Kon-kon which would be really kinda funny. Kon-kon! hahaha! Anyway, yeah he’s the best!
064.gif
I always get a Kadabra if I can. But what I love in Soulsilver is that your Abra floats around after you when you walk, it is the cutest thing ever! I kinda didn’t want to evolve him for that, but that’s unfair on him, so I reluctantly allowed him to evolve. His name is …Morpheus. lol I had forgotten… had to look him up in the menu! But yeah he’s a good guy.
093.gif
Last but not least is my Haunter, Gemima. I like her, I always used to dislike the Ghost types but Misdreavous (spelt wrong maybe?) is real cute, I wanna get one soon. I keep forgetting to go catch one. Anyway yeah I used to dislike Ghost types but Gemima is so useful! And they aren’t too bad after all.

Oh, just to mention my Eevee, Wesley. I am nuts about Eevees… I wanted to get another one at the game corner in Celadon. But I will not be able to get enough coins for a long time and they don’t have the coin and money conversion in the English Soulsilver, only in the Japanese version apparently, WHICH SUCKS!!!!!
133.gif
Cutie boy… *sigh!* If I could have a Pokemon in the real world and only one, it would always be Eevee…
So that’s my main Pokemon, I have a Rapidash I love too but can’t be bothered telling you about her. I also have a Lickytung and a Gloom and a Wobuffet who are useful in exploring but bored now so bye!

My cat plush’s name! Ta dah!

October 18th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

Well, I figured I’d name my cat plush ‘Wheat’. It is the colour of wheat, after all.
It is a friendly, gentle name which reminds me of bread and the fact that city life would in many ways not be possible without country life. I know it seems a heavy way to name a plush, thinking about those things. But I live thoughtfully. So that’s that.
It would be nice to be more carefree but I am not made that way. I will be carefree at times, but I will have to make that choice carefully. So I guess that may defeat the purpose of being carefree.
Anyway, I am learning to accept myself properly. This is not like merely conceding my own weaknesses grudgingly; but instead letting them wash over me like waves crash against rocks on the seashore. The main difference being that I will not be worn down. I will instead be allowing the weaknesses to exist for they are a part of me. I am going to let them flow and not try so hard to avoid them or stop them. I will grow stronger and be able to defeat my weaknesses one day, All of my life until now I have felt desperate, as if trying to stop waves with my bare hands, and always upset and frustrated when I mess up. Failure is the only option in this case. A mortal cannot defeat the ocean alone!
But now I can release myself from that burden. Thank you God!
Now all I have to do is try to relax more.
… how can I do that…? I will have to think about it.

Tea…relax…

October 7th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

I really like tea, I just never thought about it very much.
Lately I have been reading the Laura Childs ‘Tea Shop Mystery’ series. It drove home to me how much I like reading about tea. I want to work in a tea shop also. But not one like Theodosia’s where there’s food as well. More like a real tea shop that only deals with tea.
Anyway, I applied to a shop (the only one I know of atm) and no reply yet. Wondering if I should contact the manager and ask if they got my C.V.
Ah well I will contact her soon.
No need to rush things.
I currently like Jasmine green looseleaf best, and then looseleaf black spiced aka Chai. We call it Chai in my country but the problem is that some other countries have a word for tea which is Cha or Chai. So they get confused. That’s why we should just call it ’spiced ‘.
The Jasmine one I drink is very refreshing and needs no sugar or anything except hot water. I like it because it is less bitter than some other green teas I have tried before.
Have a relaxing day…
Relax, yo!

Manga Reviews

September 30th, 2010 by nekoi:hellokitty.com

Well I’ve been reading Sketchbook.
I really like it.
Also, Chii’s Sweet Home which is so cute.
Chikyuu Misaki is really good but a bit perverse. I just can’t get past the original art style. So good!
Can’t be bothered colouring words or giving ratings etc atm.
ttyl!
