Aaah, the light, it burrnnns!

(Taking my other new icon out for a test drive in the process...)

Yes, I actually made it out into the open air and daylight today, taking the brief respite between the decently heavy snow of yesterday before the possible foot they're calling for within the next 24 hours or so. They actually *have* started plowing out the alleyway where our cars are kept due to the bank paving part of it over to segue between their parking lots (nice to know that business clout still works where the complaints of various home owners have failed). So between that and the partial melt due to just-above-freezing temperatures, I could make it out without much problem.

Made it to the mall, and bought *huge* stack o' manga (and one other book), a CD, a Nintendo DS (finally!) and a game for it, along with reserving two more games. Le sigh. So my wallet weeps, whistle I rejoice. And I also don't have to worry about deciding on that Amazon Prime thing just yet. Woot! What I have left to order at this point, I can just deal with the time taken for the normal free shipping.

Now, off to eat and start digging into happyfunmangastuff.

Actually a lot of the stuff has been out for a little bit, but like I said I haven't made it to the mall in *ages* between one thing and the next. Hrm, lessee:

Megatokyo vol. 3
Hot Gimmick vol. 8 (this is one I've toyed with stopping, but somehow never can)
Hands Off! vol. 2
Boys Over Flowers vol. 10
Alchino vol. 1 (from a brief description looks like something I might at least try, dunno if I'll enjoy it yet)
Fruits Basket vol. 7
Gravitation vol. 10
Vampire Game vol. 10
Tramps Like Us vol. 4
Suikoden III vol. 5
Sensual Phrase vol. 6 (ditto Hot Gimmick)
Legal Drug vol. 1 (ditto Alchino, with the addition that it's Clamp, which is hit-or-miss for me)
Model vol. 5

I believe the next volume of Basara might be out as well, but forgot to specifically look for it. Oh, and I picked up another Agatha Christie book.

Like I said, huuuge stack. >< I buy too much manga, although it's usually a lot more spread out.

Hrm, didn't you say you liked FAKE? I can't remember. Anyhow, Hands-Off! has a semi-shonen-ai feel, but not anything major, more of a vibe. It reminds me of Eerie Queerie (oh why oh why did they have to change the name from Ghost?), but again less shonen-ai. It's cute, I like it so far.

And yeah, I think it's Basara 10. I start to lose track of some of the volume numbers out of the various series. >_< As a side note, I really really wish that Viz put ISBN #s on their website like Tokyopop does - searching for manga through Amazon is so damn hit-and-miss for some reason, sometimes I need the ISBN to actually find them.

Whoot loot! :-)

What DS game did you get? I bought Super Mario 64 DS and Wario Ware Touched!
Mar. 2nd, 2005 04:50 am (UTC)
The Urbz. Which quickly turned me off with its huge insistence on "street talk," but might turn out okay. I haven't played much of it yet. Really I mostly got the DS because of games that I know that I must have that are coming out in the future. *sigh*

*facepalm*... and then after I wondered what to do with Amazon, blah blah, and finally rejoiced that I could get the free shipping, what do I do? Accidentally click and put through the order with standard shipping. -_-

Guess I could see if it's too late to cancel and re-order with free shipping, such a pain tho. *sigh*

You don't have to cancel, you can edit an order to use different shipping.
Mar. 2nd, 2005 06:23 am (UTC)
Hrm, well, it's moot anyhow... when I went clicky on the page, it was already being "prepared" (I have no idea why they set it to that at like midnight, half a day before they actually get ready to ship stuff out) and I couldn't cancel or make changes. -_- Chalk one up to stupidity and fast fingers.
