Last week was, if I’m not mistaken, the first in which I didn’t put up at least two posts. Certain events have occurred that will constrain my time from now on. Add to this the dwindling of my mental capacities as I grow older, and I think it’s fair to say that my post count will drop for the remainder of the year…
A truly abominable effect of this new situation relates to my anime consumption. After having gained so many recommendations to watch Bakemonogatari, and after having actually watched the first two episodes and enjoyed them, I must regretfully let the series go. It’s a game of priorities here on out, and what must be jettisoned must be jettisoned etc. I’ll stick to Haruhi (how do I love thee, let me count the ways, or why not I just I repeat my declaration in slightly different permutations: how do I love you, let me count the ways; how do I love thee, allow me to count the ways), Shin Mazinger (who would have thought it would be a a set of crisscrossing love-affairs? oh Lorelei / sweet Gamia) and Jewel Pet (Rinko shall overcome, or I swear I’ll stop watching anime altogether).
These three shall be my Yorktown, Hornet and Enterprise to protect me as I course midway upon the journey of our life, and if you’ve come across a better metaphor integrating the Battle of Midway with Dante’s Inferno then darn, you’ve read a lot.
