As people may not have noticed, yes, this world is actually a blog. I post my 'reviews' here because they are my opinion and I think that my ranting about things online is not very different than scribbling in a diary at home. If you follow my reviews, and I don't suppose that many do, I'm stating now that this is not a review. If you'd like to skip it now, i wont be offended please do so (although it would be pretty hard to tell anyway since this is the internet...). I'm writing this now because I don't want to look like that desperate person who pulls people in only to make them listen to their personal life. Your choice on what you want to read and I don't want anyone feeling ike they got a raw deal. K?
I apoligize for my many hours away from this screen, but I have a very busy life. I have a lot of pressure to make it into a research class, and if I don't keep my grades up, I lose my opportunity to earn college credits before I graduate and you know how that is. I alrady gave up my lunch period to cram in three electives next year and, well, I'm a little freaked out. However, I'm sure things will turn out all right because my Drama Club is over now and I can stay after school for research classes. I swear, Guys and Dolls is a nightmare! We had to stay in the building until 8:30 every night! Shouldn't that be illegal? And does anyone truly understand the Oddesy? Really?
This is also a heads up that I will probably not be on often this summer either. If I can just get my working papers in order (I've been putting it off for quite some time) I can get a few extra dollars in for college which I really do need to start preparing for. Thank You Everyone for your understanding, your comments, and especially Vanilla Cupcake for that wonderful card.
Love, peace, golden fleece!
(By the way, if anyone wondered about the post i mentioned about the play Willy Wonka seven zillion years ago, I played the lead, it was a success, it ended months ago and that's about it.)

So if you're like most gals my age, a good percentage of the manga you read is shojo. From most of what I read, there's always two or more guys going after a girl and she usually either has no idea, doesn't care, or both. A lot of people have just accepted that, no questions asked. I've got two things to say to them: "Ha" and "Ha". Firstly, if you haven't thought about this theory of mine, please do. If you come up with a theory of your own, let's hear it. But please, please, please question what you read. Disagree with people sometimes: It's really rather healthy.
Now most people just accept that female charactures in shojo are innocents and have learned to accept that without questioning it throught the principal of "common usage." Who could blame them? Shojo works rather perfectly actually. Think about it for a minute.
The gorgeuos guy falling for the everyday girl(that's actually really hot, but never mind), that has nothing special and least expects love. This can show that REAL everyday people like the rest of us have a chance with the guy of our dreams even if, let's face it, that's not gonna happen. One guy is the close figure that has loved her all along, and the other is the strange new intriguing characture that has just then fallen in love. The innocent girl is confused. The "new" guy finds this even more attractive and goes after her even more while the "loved you all along" tries to protect her. This is how the two boys rival each other. In a pinch, you might see the New Guy "leave her because he loves her" or Loved You All Along Guy pick a fight and the girl goes and tends to the wounds of the loser. The innocent girl is tormented by their rivalry and confused by their actions. The readers pity her, and anxiously await her final decision. But she still is innocent right?
OF COURSE NOT!!!!!!!!!
Who wouldn't want two hotties fighting over you? You're a teenage girl! Look at Haruhi Fujioka and try to tell me that she HONESTLY wasn't playing anyone in the Host Club. She's got four guys drooling over her, arguably five! How about the girl in "Friuts Basket"? YEAH RIGHT! We all ship in our minds which guy she's gonna get: in her mind she's shipping herself with every single one. This comes off as "innocence" somehow because if she's flirting with everybody, we accept that's what the characture is like and that she's not flirting with any of them. I don't think so. I'm not saying every Shojo in the world is like this, but I';m saying that it's worth thinking about.
So think about it. If one person that reads this actually thinks over the next thing that they read (a newspaper article, a poem, a magazine), and DOES NOT IGNORE A VALID ARGUMENT the world is now a better place.
WARNING: MAY BE SPOILER!
Alright. I love Sebby. You love Sebby. So we all love Sebby. Sebastian Michaelis is and always will be, the hottiest hottie of Kuroshitsuji.
Or is he?
Of course, there are always hotties in Black Butler. For me my personal favorite has always been Sebatian. But I must admit that there are others. The
Undertaker has always been very intriguing to me. Although I never got to see his face, his personality was just so...I dunno. He's just a cutie. It wasn't such a great loss that I never got to see his face. He was right up there, but still, on the list, Sebby was #1.
My brother, who read ahead, told me that eventually he takes off the hat(!). He said he was a real geek with glasses and had scars all over his face and was really gross. I didn't care, so I read ahead. My brother was WRONG!!!!! Check this guy out:
Otakus, it's up to you. Sebastian or the Undertaker?
So I've been thinking.
Thre are a lot of people who love Ouran Host Club. Myself included. But if you really break it down,is it really sucha good idea? Hear me out. I don't mean to badmouth it or anything. I was just thinking the other day, really? Would people actually go there? Would YOU personally go there? I know I wouldn't. Why? It's embarassing! According to my theory, this is exactly what woud happen if I did end up there somehow:
Host Club: Welcome!
(Face turns red)
Kyoya: Is this your first time here? Don't be shy.
Kyoya: So, what's your type? Stoic? Prince?
Hikaru: What's her problem?
Kauru: Can she hear us?
Hani: Maybe she's sick?
Kyoya: She's a transfer from America. Do...you...understand...me?
Tamaki: Let me handle this. Welcome...princes...
Haruhi: Aww...she's just shy. What's your name?
Kyoya: You should know, Haruhi, she's in your class. Pay attention.
Hani: Are you okay, Miss?
Mori: She looks ill.
(Hands glass of water)
Tamaki: Oh my gosh, her face is beet red!
Twins: Is she gonna faint?
Kyoya: Get her to the nurse now! This will be so bad for our reputation!
Hikaru: She's trying to say something!
Kauru: She's saying something!
Tamaki: What's the matter?
Me:...isn't this...the music room...?
Me: The music teacher asked me to stay late.
Me: He says I have real potential on the piano.
Kyoya: I'm afraid not. This room is presently being used after school hours for the use of the Host Club.
Kyoya: Down the hall, take a left, it's the third door down.
SEE? Me, being the cloud cuckoolander I am, would get lost, walk in there, and accedently cause a scene. If one of my friends managed to drag me in there, it would not end well and would probably end the relationship. Let's face it otakus: (wipes tear from her eye) I'm to embarrassed to face ouran.
As I say this, I know there are going to be a flood of comments saying I'm crazy and if they could get to Ouran, they would totally see the Host Club. If you could honestly say that you could go there alone and actually have a good time without being self concious, that is commendable, and you are more worthy of the crown than I.
That's all for today! Love, peace, and chicken grease! <3
