Hotaru no Hikari and not much

current mood: amused

So, Hotaru finished this week. I have to admit I was a bit surprised at how much they put into the final episode! I didn't expect them to mention everything they did. Still, it ended reasonably well. I much preferred the drama to the manga personally, but we'll see how the next manga volume goes. ^_^

Otherwise, I've mostly been slacking especially since I read through all of Nightmare of Butterfly, one of the doujinshi that toriru4ever picked up for me. I *so* enjoyed reading it! ^o^ Seraphita is one of my favourite doujinshi writers for Ghost Hunt.

Ack! FSU's planned torture has worked! >.<;; She likes to pick up Chocolatier magazine for me and I just read about the new products in there. O.O There are things like new teas (chocolate truffle, chocolate orange truffle, masala chocolate truffle, and mayan chocolate truffle) from Mighty Leaf (I couldn't find them online yet though >.<; ) an Amazon Valley Chocolate ice cream from Haagen-Dazs (I can't *have* ice cream!!), and even a white chocolate with strawberry organic ice cream (see previous). I'm only 10 pages into the magazine. Hopefully, I'll manage to get through the rest of the magazine fairly unscathed. :P

In any case, it's off to the Farmers' Market for me today although I've been banned from buying any berries this time. This year has been absolutely horrible on the berry front for me. I've tried tarts, pies, and even a syrup and they all turned out terribly over or under-sweetened. >x<;; (I wonder if that would be the right face for how things turned out?? :P ) I'm hoping to finish off the last... page or two for the first part (no fun stuff, sorry) of one of Mona's things. :P Hopefully. I've also picked up a silly little game (Plant Tycoon) which is very time consuming and throwing me right back into high school bio. ^^;

Mighty Leaf itself is at http://www.mightyleaf.com/ (or mightyleaf.ca) but I'm not seeing the choco truffle teas listed yet. >.<;; I'm wondering if I should try emailing and inquiring about the teas. :P I'll definitely let you know if I find the teas online. ^o^

Thank you for the link. I'll go wander through their web site and check out the temptations they do offer.

I don't suppose you'll translate Nightmare of the Butterfly and post it? Pretty please?

Thanks for the chocolate craving. ~_~

*laughs* Spreads the choco love. ^o^

I don't think I can translate Nightmare. It's ~350 pages of text! ^^;

Ack! That's a lot!

No, no spreading chocolate love. I like not being glared at. XD

Question!

Question! Is the Ghost Hound trailer worth checking out? It sounds interesting, but I can't find any information on it... that I can read. ~_~

Re: Question!

The latest trailer I DLed was translated but missing most of the audio so I can't say if it's really worth DLing. ^^; As it is, the series is starting in less than a month so... shall see how that goes. ^_^

*poke* wants some saiunkoku p0rn :P

but glad you liked the Ghost Hunt ^^
*any smut in it?* lol
I was tempted to get one smutty Naru/Mai manga-style doujinshi but wasn't sure you would like *head-desk*

^^;; Sadly, the first post I'll be making will be very tame; it's all pre-smut background. :P

Ohhh, GH is <3! :P Most of what I've read for Seraphita tends to be very mild or pre-NaruxMai. This one was very much on that end so it was clean. Believe me when I say I generally don't mind smut. ^^;;
