Figured I'd drop a post and let people know I'm still alive before I pass out. :D (why do i always post right before i fall over in a coma, is my procrastination really so bad i put off sleeping to the last minute?*)

The main reason for my absence - I have been playing a ridiculous amount of video games. So far I've finished Fable 2, Fallout 3, and I'm more than halfway through FFXIII. Yeah.

Read the Holic chapter and that was. Interesting. Particularly the stuff that was brushed off, but that's it's own post. On the one hand, it was really shippy. On the other hand, I feel like quoting the wisdom of Martha Jones at Doumeki: when it's gotten that bad and nothing has changed, you need to get out. ): I keep trying to tell myself this isn't leading somewhere heartbreaking and tragic, because, despite the changes, I am still ridiculously found of those two idiots. But then I notice the stacks of X siting smugly in the corner and I wonder who am I trying to kid. /o\

The news about Holic switching to a monthly magazine was less interesting and more wtf. Just when I was getting used to the uninterrupted updates, too.

The PH chapter was ♥. I'm waiting for the translations to come out, but I already have Things To Say. Of course. *rubs hands together in gleeful anticipation*

*yes. yes it is that bad. /o\

Haven't played the English version of XIII yet -- tried the Japanese one, was pissed at so many things, but I'll surely get the English one soon (we actually own it, but I want my own *sigh*.)

Doumeki D: <-- my reaction about anything-Holic these days. I'm really sad for the kid, I don't think CLAMP has made a character as... I don't want to say "pathetically committed" as him, but that's the only description I can come up with.

And your icon says it all ;p Hope you'll get your share of sleep after this!

haha, which parts? How far did you get?

Doumeki is...yeah. Though from the sound of the translation, it looks like he's going to school, keeping up the temple, and bumming around Watanuki's place day and night. At least he keeps busy?

I slept for like, a day. XD

I got Shiva, I think, and a little more after that? Some 6 hours of playing time, mainly to lol at my weak skills to catch Japanese to wave a story. I'm one of those old-school FF fans (yeah, those annoying ones), so I'm just being old and cranky about the fighting system and, just, all sorts of things 8(

Oh they're breaking our/his heart. That Egg is going to be something terrible.

Huh, where did you find the new Holic chapter? Or do you mean the spoilers?

I was surprised about the Holic news too, I didn't expect that. Sure, there have been periods when it's been feeling like a monthly series because of all the breaks, but like you say, after TRC ended the releases have been steady so I thought I'd continue like that. Longer chapters sounds nice though.

There are translations out for PH, btw, here (http://mangahelpers.com/t/olivine/releases/20827). And yes, this chapter was so much love. I can't stop staring at that group picture. ♥

I meant the spoilers. XD

Yeah, I'd gotten used to the weekly installments. I just hope the chapters do get a bit longer. *crosses fingers*

ooo! thank you!

Agh, the thing that bugs me the most about Holic's news is that two month break. ;A; I was excited that there were no breaks coming up too...A few people seem to think that the monthly release will have a lot more pages, but I wonder if it really would. I'm honestly more expecting it to still be around the same length. :/ Kobato's monthly and still has really short chapters after all.

Can't wait for your Things To Say. |D

honestly, most of it is going to be spazzing about Leo (check out Alice's eyes after she says 'I may know you, I may not' - she *looks up*, laskdjflskdjf) and a bit about Echo

Two month break, nooooo. Do not say such things. If I ignore it, then it won't be true.

HI. Nice to see you are alive. I too am alive. You should get online and we can be alive together.

Dude. WE ARE ADDICTED TO FABLE 2! And Joe and I are really frustrated because our spouses 'want sex', but we attempt to do so, and it's fucking impossible! And the god-damn villagers won't get out of my house, so my wife won't bang me! D:
