I'm sorry if i's too personal or if you've already answered that but, do you have kids ? Are you married with a familly ? I'm sorry, I'm just curious ^^"

Oh, it’s okay! I don’t mind answering. No, I’m not married and I don’t have any children. Unless you want to count my cat, who’s just as demanding as a child would be. ^^; I’ve honestly never really been much interested in dating or anything like that. I’ve had crushes before, but never any real desire to do anything about it. I’m fine with staying single. :)

As for kids, I like them but I just wouldn’t ever make a good parent. I’m too shy to even talk to adults in the real world most of the time, so I have no idea how to talk to children either.

Sooo one of my mom’s colleagues and her kids went missing a few days ago, and like we didn’t know she was missing until we saw a missing notice posted on Facebook

… She’s not actually missing tho, she’s in hiding. From the exact same people who posted that missing notice, and who she definitely doesn’t want to be found by.

So a reminder to please please check this kind of thing before you share missing notices.

Ughhhh okay I work in a law enforcement field where we deal with a lot of missing persons and here’s why I don’t share things like this without a link to a LE press release or major national news outlet. IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A SOURCE, YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S LIFE.

LET ME REPEAT: IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A VERIFIABLE, LEGITIMATE SOURCE YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S FUCKING LIFE. 

I know you think you are helping. I know you think a “signal boost” is the right thing to do. BUT PLEASE VERIFY BEFORE YOU SHARE.

Double goes for missing minors!!!!!!!!Predators and abusers put out things like this to get information on the whereabouts of their victims.

And don’t forget that just because a person is disabled doesn’t mean they aren’t being abused and trying to escape their abusers. In fact, disabled people are even more likely to be abused.

Very important addition.

Hey, just a heads up: I beileve the Mime Control episode is next, in which case I apologize in advance for my behavior. See, when you get to that episode(s), I will have very strong feels and it may seem like I'll be stalking you. So, Im very sorry.

Heh, no problem! Strong feelings are good, I don’t mind. :) I really love that duel myself, so I’m looking forward to watching it. Next episode is the last part of the Jou and Haga duel, but the one after that, ep 65, will be the start of the one with the mime.

Hieroglyphs in Ep. 199

The Egyptian hieroglyphic text found in episode 199 is notable for, well, not being actual Egyptian. It in fact uses the common “Hieroglyphics for Kids” alphabet from certain Egyptian characters to directly transcribe what Sugoroku is saying in Japanese. 

The transcription is as follows:

KORYEORYSAKY
YDAYNARWFAR
AONIMWRYSY(2/3)OW
OKASISYMONOKA
MYNOSIYSAYNYYO
RYNYKWTAYHAK
TAMASYYHAYAM
YNYHOWMWRARI
YOW

My suspicions were aroused when I saw mono ka and tamashii ’soul’(TAMASYY) written in these hieroglyphics. It then began to fall into place:

KORYE ORYSAKY YDAYNA (RW) FARAO
kore ori-saki idaina farao
これ降り先偉大なファラオ
"There is a great pharaoh down this path"
etc.

Interesting! It never occurred to me to find out if it actually means anything :D (But I think YDAYNARW in your translated part is supposed to be idai-naru.)

Forgive me if you've already answered this before, but who is your favourite and least favourite character from Duel Monsters?
Anonymous

No problem, I don’t mind answering again! :) My favorite character is Yami Yugi/Atem. I’ve gone on about him in words before here and here and probably plenty more during my liveblog, so I guess I won’t do that this time. The short version of why I love him though is because:

A. He’s awesomely overdramatic and badass.

B. He’s really hot.

C. And he’s a super dork.

Of course there are plenty more reasons as well, but those are just a couple. :)

As for least favorite, I’d say it’s a toss-up between Haga/Weevil and Gozaburo Kaiba. They’re both pretty unsympathetic characters who have done really crappy things, and while other Yu-Gi-Oh villains have certainly done crappy things as well there’s usually something about them that mitigates it somewhat and allows you to sympathize with them. Haga has nothing as far as I can see, although I know that there are some who are able to find a reason to enjoy him and that’s fine. For me though, he’s just unrelentingly nasty and a cheater and there’s just nothing interesting enough about him to allow me to possibly overlook those things.

Gozaburo is pretty much the same. He was pretty much a completely crappy adopted father to Seto and Mokuba, especially in the manga from what I understand from what others have said, and he really wasn’t all that much better towards his actual real son in the anime either. Sure he stuck him in a computer and gave him things to try and keep him happy after his body died, but he eventually stopped doing that and pretty much tried to manipulate him during the Noah arc. He’s just a really unpleasant person overall.

OH HELL NO. YOU DON’T GET TO IMPLY THAT THIS IS SOMEHOW JOUNOUCHI’S FAULT YOU ASSHOLE.

ANZU’S RIGHT, YOU’RE A DIRTY, SLIMY CHEATER. I HOPE YOU LOSE EVERY BATTLE YOU’RE IN FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF TIME AND ALSO THAT YOU STEP ON LEGOS EVERYWHERE YOU GO. I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO CALL YOU AN INSECT BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE AN INSULT TO ALL INSECTS TO BE COMPARED TO YOU.

I’m sorry, I’ll stop ranting now. I just hate him so much. >_<

I have never seen you angry but when I got to legos I just had to gasp like…holy crap…holy CRAP 

Lol, that was the most painful non-lethal thing I could think of. ^^; I think I’ve screamed at Kaiba once before, but yeah I don’t usually get this angry at characters. There aren’t very many characters in any series that I truly can’t stand, but Haga is definitely one of them.

I just really like the way they swap their cards out. It looks pretty cool.

I always wondered if the cards in the show are thicker than the ones we use in rl. Cause its really hard to do that with our cards

I think in the show they’re supposed to have some sort of microchips in them so they can be read by the duel system, so they probably are a bit thicker.

Well, at least it doesn’t sound like a donkey this time. ^^; Also Ultimate Great Moth is a lot prettier than regular Great Moth.

Atta boy, Jou! You beat Esper Roba so you can definitely beat this punk too!

Also it just occurred to me that he’s ended up dueling against quite a few cheaters up till now. First Mai with her perfume trick, then Bandit Keith, then Esper Roba, and now Haga.

I will at least grudgingly admit that Haga did a good job in planning this all out and picking the cards he would need for it to work, but I can’t get over the fact that the entire thing hinges on him having Jou’s deck tampered with in the first place. His Insect Barrier would be completely useless otherwise.

Grrrr. That was a nice try though, Jounouchi.

Also, didn’t Haga try to pull this same sort of thing on Yami in season 4? I know Jou’s going to find a way around it, although I forget how exactly he does it, so apparently Haga doesn’t ever really learn anything from his losses.

OH HELL NO. YOU DON’T GET TO IMPLY THAT THIS IS SOMEHOW JOUNOUCHI’S FAULT YOU ASSHOLE.
