I do believe our wet season (our very, very late wet season!) is finally here. It pissed torrential buckets of the Noah-get-your-ark variety all night last night. Seriously heavy! I wake up this morning to find that the roads are cut off. We can't get past Babinda (which is about an hour down the road from me).

You know what this means?

Supplies in by boat unless the rivers go down soon. Joy. Let us watch the price of food and other commodities skyrocket, shall we?

It is good to see the rain though. We need it.

In other news I introduced Dave to Kenshin and Fushigi last night *grins. He was curious about what Anime was so asked a lady he knew to lend him some (she supplies dvd's to quite a few people around here). She gave him some.




It was porn.

He was all WTF?! and trying to work out if I had some hidden dark side/kink that I watched this sort of stuff (I've a sneaking suspicion that tentacles were involved in this thing at some point). *laughs*.

It took me a while to explain the different types of anime and that there were subsections within subsections, but I think he's finally got it. He actually wants to buy Kenshin and some more anime for himself.

Of course, he's not gonna brave JB's anime section by himself. I have to go in and explain the different ones to him. Should be fun ^___^.

His reaction to the Nuriko Bomshell was classic!!! We only got up to episode 6, so no intro's to Chichiri or Tasuki (I have a feeling he would've loved Tasuki).

Overall, he was impressed with the artwork in both the series and the fact that there was a discernable storyline linking the whole thing together. He was expecting something more along the lines of South Park or the like I think.

Dave: "You know, I can't really call this a cartoon, 'cause it's not. It's not like anything I was expecting"
Me: "Why do you think I always differenciate between cartoons and anime?"
Dave: "It's more like... a tv show that's been animated"

Huston, I think we have an anime convert. My work is done ^___^

Of course, I've decided that it's going to be a very long time before I introduce him to fanfiction and some of the stuff that goes on in that...

One last thing. I've noticed something in Nu!Trek fanfic that's starting to irk me. They're making Kirk severly allergic (as in anaphylactic, or however you spell that, shock) to literally everything! *eyeroll*. Logically speaking, if there were a person like that, would Starfleet really run the risk of putting someone with that type of medical history in charge of their flag ship?

I don't think so.

I can understand an allergy to a couple of things (as there is canon basis from that scene in the new movie for him being severely allergic to something in that mudflea virus), but everything?
