kemonotachi no yoru

stuffs

Ummm... got tagged for a meme by roostah

Explain your LiveJournal name, its meaning, and mention an alternative username you would have used. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.

So... umm... it's actually pretty simple. I have a few different names on LJ. kagenoyume (dreams of the shadows), yumenokage (shadows of dreams) and kagedreams (shadow dreams). All are based around my website's name Kagesai no Yume. Kagenoyume is essentially dead as is yumenokage, but yumenokage is where, when I get the urge, I'll write in Japanese. It's also the blog for the fan fic section to my site.

Since kagedreams is the third of that series of names, if I had to pick something else still... I'm not sure. I might have to backtrack to where the site name came from (Tsuki no Kage, Kage no Umi - the title of a novel by Ono Fuyumi). When originally working on the site (before the FruBa Translation Pages were opened to the FruityGroup), I'd had an opening page with the comment:

月と影の間、何が生まれるのでしょう。。。
(That which is born between the moon and the shadows is...)

so I'd probably have gone with something based around tsukikage or some such.

As for tagging... um, anyone who wants to should feel free. ^^; I'm not sure about tagging... !! 10 people. ^^;;

And as I'd mentioned earlier in a comment, We Suck has released their fansub for ep 4.

Oh well, I guess I can add the dictionary on top of everything else I want to get along with Saiunkoku manga. :P

Otherwise, the Mermaid jacket has now been cast on!!! ...... sort of. ^^;; Casting on has been done, and the female sibling unit is doing a provisional cast on rather than the i-cord. She then ran into "on an 80cm 3mm circular needle". ...... We don't have a 3mm circular?? Thankfully, Make1 is having a sale next week, and I'd been sort of hoping to go, so we'll probably check if they have some Addi Naturas in 3 mm. Everyone else (CP, Clover...) is proving to be rather questionable on 3mm. Most often we're running into 3.25mm. >_<;; In the meantime, FSU's been charting out the pattern, and is admitting that it's going to be a lot of work. The ends of each row varies and the instructions are quite detailed and specific. :O I think I'm glad she'll be doing it and not me. ^^;

My socks are going slowly and I really need to kick up the pace if I want to finish by July 9. Right now, I've finished the ribbing and maybe ~1-1.5" of length. I'll see about doing a progress photo in another day or so. Hopefully it'll have grown a bit too. :P

Anyhow, it's lunch time. Time to hunt down some food. ^_^
