    I can honestly understand how it might happen, but I'm always confused at how it gets through proofreading *and* past the editor.

    I wonder too. Though I suppose it might be one of those things that you only notice if you're reading the books back to back? That's what I've been doing anyway :P

    Either he or the ex was pregnant during the divorce? Almost certainly not what the author intended

    The ex was supposedly pregnant before the divorce, but in one (The earlier) book the story is that she lied about the pregnancy to trap him into marriage and that's why he wants a divorce, in the other she's after the divorce because she fell in love with someone else and they had girl-boy twins.

    I have a book with a title that’s something like, Unuseless Japanese Inventions (and the word chindougu or chindogu, a more Westernized spelling for the same word, is probably in there too), and that is an entry in the book. I recommend looking it up if that kind of humor appeals to you. I love it.

    Was talking about anime with a coworker, and brought up Satoshi Kon. Talking about him made me want to go back and watch videos about his work, because he is probably one of my favorite directors after Tim Burton, Hayao Miyazaki and Sergio Leone.



    If you could only watch movies by one director for the rest of your life, who would you pick?

    Stephen Spielberg, because I'm basic like that XD
    realistically basically whoever directed Jurassic park, because I can't see myself in a world where I can't watch that series
    Also he's directed or helped direct a shitton of my faves, and Ive always loved how much effort he put in the small bits of movies

    Try and look for Clancy's new kettle cooked cuban sandwich chips, if it pleases. Tastes like an actual cuban sandwich and not just pickle flavor tossed in random overwhelming seasonings. They also have a hot chicken wing flavor rn that I cannot vouch for but look interesting

    had a mysterious dream last night. a lot happened, but the most mysterious part was I was following a Saint who'd turned into a ferret around different sites in Italy.
    The thing is: there is no Saint Minerva. the only Minerva I know is the Roman Goddess.
    and there's no links to ferrets.
    but it was of utmost importance i followed her, because she showed me some kind of huge statue to a sea god out in the water, which was weird as shit itself
    and she kept breaking traffic laws with her little ferret inchworm running
    it made such an impression on me man, like. intense voice "LOOK HER UP WHEN YOU WAKE UP" commanding style.
    WELL I DID AND SHE DOESN'T EXIST, BRAIN, WHAT OF IT.

    Slightly drunk and discussing with a friend whether a school is the opposite of a theatre. In one the people at the front tell you facts, in the other they show you fiction, seems logical to me.

    Saw a post on twitter about girls watching anime that made me think about anime I used to watch, and I realized I really like space western type animes (Cowboy Bepop, Trigun, Outlaw Star), and post apocalyptic animes (Akira, Wolf's Rain, Ergo Proxy, Fist of the North Star, Evangelion).

    have you ever watched "Girls Last Tour" or "Made In Abyss" or "Humanity Has Declined"?
