Hey, I saw those lions when I was in Las Vegas! Or at least similar looking lions in that same enclosure. They were a bit less bitey then, though.

Since RL is being less than productive at the moment (As in during the last two weeks I have achieved 4 "Thanks but no thanks" responses to job applications, and not much else), excluding the social life - party last Friday, getting to see the Tim Burton exhibition with family on Saturday, housewarming for [livejournal.com profile] fa11ing_away this weekend - have some fandomness:

- FMA Gaiden! Not yet translated, but it looks short but cute.
- Also FMA, this hilarious news from a couple of weeks back. Spoilers if you haven't finished the manga. I would totally have said yes, though.
- We still don't know anything about this upcoming FMA movie, though.
- On the other hand, news about the Code Geass Gaiden was less newsworthy. Interesting discussion in the comments, though.
- ...Yeah, that's about it. I do need to catch up on Futurama, though. And work my way through my anime To Watch list.

My random out of print CD I bought off eBay seems to have arrived fine? Yeah, I think I need better things to talk about. I also have a free icon space. Now, where do the nifty icons hang out...

ETA: Oh wow, Australian music from the start of the decade. The only time I've ever heard rap mentioning Cheryl Kernot.
And I am home again, back to Ye Olde Apartment.

Australia is very... Australia (read: cold, and filled with political campaigning) but hey, what can you do?

Did a bit of catching myself up, mail and what-not - incidentally, the post card I sent apparently arrived like two days ago? 'Course, I'm still not really up to date on more personal stuff, anyone care to get chatty?

...But not tonight. Tonight I need a decent night's sleep.
And so endeth the trip to America. It was an experience. And one that was, for the most part, fun. (Packing was... interesting. I expect unpacking will be even more so.)

And now for all the endless flights back to Melbourne. Which involve Monday completely vanishing into non-existance, how delightful. And back to election campaigning, ugh.

Er, see you all on the other side?

Another actual post for once, though this is very possibly due to be the last one for a while (I'm in Las Vegas from tomorrow morning - early tomorrow morning - until Saturday evening, and then in New York from Monday to Friday after that. And then I fly home on Sunday, which means I'll have about two non-busy days until I get back to Australia).

Anyway, I see fandom has failed to implode once more. At least any more than usual. I'll probably go LJ MIA for a bit, as I shall be busy which such excitements as seeing the Cirque du Soleil, or having a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.

And whatever other excitments we can find in Vegas. I mean, I sure there's going to be something fun to do, anyway. ;)

I'm actually organised for my graduation when I get back! Well, I have robes booked, which is good. Speaking of that date, anything interesting happening, election-wise? America kinda sucks for international news.

And for a bit of fun, the greatest meme in the history of memeage:


We could all use a little bit of Old Spice Man in our lives. I certainly could, anyway. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lizbee, whom I ganked that meme off). Sadly, I do not possess her ability to come up with a suitably suave intro for it)
