Good luck with drawing Nezumi's mom. :3

I drew a picture for my next Childhood Friends AU short story today. ^^

Ah...I actually wanted to make a homepage for my illustration/writing/voice acting references today, but my internet kept dying (ok, it always comes back after a while, but then it's slow and dies again... no fun at all.)
I als thought about writing another short story, but I need my online dictionary. >_<

I don't know what happened...but I hope those stupid technical problems of my provider will stop as soon as possible, especially since they concern several cities (according to comments of other people who use the same provider...) *sighs* (I don't know how I was able to survive without the internet when I was a kid. XD)

Halloween is coming up pretty soon, are you guys doing anything for it? Wait, do you guys even celebrate it? I don't know which countries do and which don't...

Well, depending on when I move, I COULD go around as Yato to get a bunch of free candy... (I'm little, no one would know I'm old enough to have kids myself...)

I'm Dutch and Halloween is only barely a thing here (but it was p awesome in Dublin last year)... so I think I'll - idk do closet cosplay because I can? Oh wait, it's a Saturday, there's a chance I might have to work in the book store then. Selling horror books to set the mood then, I hope XD And reading them at home, I've been meaning to reread Carmilla and some others, seems like a good time.

ETA: CAN'T BELIEVE I FORGOT TO MENTION WATCHING A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. YEAH. THAT.


I think it's mostly big in the countries that have English as a first language? Idk. I've grown up with horror books so my perception has always been skewed in favor of WANTING to see Halloween everywhere...


@Weisel: nonsense dressing up and candy is for all ages do iiiiit

Halloween is super big in America, but it's barely anything here in Japan... XD There's a brief mention of it, but that's it. (The whole month of October is kinda treated like Halloween here.)
BUT. The other assistant teachers and I are having some type of Halloween party and costume contest, so.. we'll see how that goes.

(I'm also gonna go to all my schools wearing a Pikachu costume. :b )

...I also want to draw something for Nezumi, Shion, or Inukashi for Halloween, but I can't think of any good ideas. T_T
I thought of maybe dressing them up as Jack and Sally from NBC, but something just didn't feel right...

In Germany, there's another tradition on October 31st...
It's called "Reformationstag". (reformation day...it's a holiday)...
The day celebrates that Martin Luther nailed those ninety five theses to the catholic castle church in Wittenberg, or something like that. XD I myself don't celebrate it.

Halloween is not that common here, but I guess some younger people do celebrate it. I think especially those of the older generation believe that Halloween is just some American hype, even though the tradition and celebration itself had its origins in Europe. Well, you can easily find some Halloween decoration in stores at the moment and some bags with candy, but it's actually pretty rare that kids come here and play "trick or treat" (in German: Ses, sonst gibt's Saures!) I think I experienced it once that two kids came and wanted candy. X'D

I guess some younger people might enjoy a costume party then... and I think it gained popularity within the last years. When I was a kid, it was still pretty uncommon and just something you heard or read about... I remember that I always thought it was an American festival or something. :D

@Meo OMG XDDD You need to show us a photo then. *-* *wants to See Meokachu*

Hmmm... last year I've drawn Vampire!Nezumi... X'D I'm not sure if I'm gonna draw something for this year. Probably not. o.o

---

Urgh, I had some bad luck today. XD I went grocery shopping and one of my bags tore apart. Luckily still in my shopping cart. X'D In the end I borrowed the cart to bring my stuff home and brought it back later. x_x
Ah, and earlier today I picked up some papers for an old grandpa... but he was super creepy. XD He thanked me and was like. "Oh, you're so nice..." (But well,  in a very creepy way) and started to follow me. X'D *cries* I was just glad he was so old and slow. I escaped. *phew*

@Ahiku: oh, huh, I definitely had Luther and Wittenberg at primary school but that's the first time I even know people celebrate the date, haha. Makes sense I guess~

Yeah Halloween is getting a bit bigger in other countries now too, isn't it?

@Meo: OMIGOSH PLEASE SHOW US PICTURES. If you're comfortable with that of course. Regardless that is fantastic XD

@Ahiku: ahhh oh I loved that art! *_* Gonna find it and reblog it for Halloween again, huhu.

But yiiiikes! Glad to hear the grocery bag thing worked out though, and that you could escape the creepy man. Yikes, no fun at all >_<

OMG! Don't use books to kill wasps, listenforthelove's dad! >,<
Ah, that reminds me of something... a couple of weeks ago we had a big meeting (all teams together, that means like 60 people.) And there was a wasp in the room and since there are mainly women, they were all screaming lol. XD After a while the wasp was gone and the bosses continued talking, but then one of the guys stood in front of the windows and was like. "Go away...go outside...it's not that hard <_< Shoo!" And he didn't even notice that it was silent and that 60 people were looking at him. X'D
Then, another guy (a giant one, like a bear) went to the window and was like: "Ah, let me help you!" And then, he smashed the wasp with his bare hand. o___O  *cries*

I used to work at an outdoor summer market selling baked goods, and sometimes the wasps would be like "MMM LET'S EAT ALL THESE TASTY THINGS!" So after a couple years of trying to shoo them away, I got tired of being nice and I started killing them. I used one of the little disposable trays we had for serving baklava and would either smash the wasps or hit them out of the air and step on them. I wouldn't totally kill the first one, just leave it there so it would release its "DANGER!" pheromones to scare off the other wasps. It actually works. I think I did that every day and kept away any other wasps for the rest of the day. I am a wasp fighter.

Also the old man story... That reminded me of today because my knees aren't so good and the one hurts a lot right now so I can only walk at a causal pace. It was raining (snowing earlier, too!) and I was shopping with my mom. She didn't want to be in the rain but I was being slow, so I told her "Go on ahead, I'll catch up." She hurried over to the store we were headed to and I just kept saying stuff like "There could be a landslide we have to run away from and I'd tell you 'go on ahead, I'll catch up'" while I was getting soaked by the rain. (okay, maybe it wasn't that funny but it was funny to me.)

Omg. Bug exterminator Weisel. XD That's a rather epic tale.
It sucks that you got drenched in the rain! Where's your umbrella?! ;_; AND OMG IT'S SNOWING WHERE YOU GUYS ARE ALREADY? WHY. IT'S ONLY OCTOBER. STAAAHP.

Ah, but speaking of bug-killing... o.o There was a kamemushi (stink bug) in the special needs classroom today.. and my student was shouting at the Japanese teacher to get rid of it.. XD but it was really high up on the wall, so the teacher had to use a broom to knock it down... and, when it fell, she ducted taped it.. and threw it in the trash. o__o *was cheerleader/screaming on the side*

@Miz, Ahiku: XD When I say Pikachu costume, I only mean a headband and a tail. orz  it's nothing fancy. T__T SO YOU CAN'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

BUT OMG. I WANT TO SEE AHIKU'S HALLOWEEN DRAWING TOO.

My fiance gave me idea to draw for hallowen Shion as Snow White and Nezumi with red apple and in witch costume. We don't have this event in our country but drawing for it would be nice if I didn't had so many things already to do.


Good I'm mental exhausted. I'm going on some training and there are so many psychological tests and talks that I feel like my depression returns.
To add my charger input in tablet seems to start break down, I wrote my NO.6 fanfiction things on it... I don't know what I will do if it break fully T_T... to and more again family problems with my father...
So yeah, today is bad day.     

Only nice thing that my order of LN from Pandora Hearts arrived today.

@kare: Nezumi would be the witch... XD
But oh, you don't have Halloween where you live? o.o.... Where do you live anyway? :3

Aw, ;__; I'm sorry to hear there's been a lot of medical exams and stuff. *hug*
I hope things get better. >< Never forget to breathe and relax and take it easy and give yourself "me"-time!

@Ahiku: Okayyy~ XD I'll put up pictures next week-ish then. pfft


Speaking of Halloween, what's everyone's favorite holiday? :D
(well, I guess TECHNICALLY Halloween isn't a holiday, but y'know, whatever, technicalities.) I'm pretty sure Halloween is my favorite.. XD
Just because I can even go out to school in my pajamas and that can be my costume..  :3
