It really has been awhile since I've updated this thing, hasn't it? Well, I never claimed to be as interest in technology as Kaiba was (unless it has something to do with gaming.) Let's see what I could write about.

A lot has happened to me in the last five years, both good and bad. I suppose the highlights are due to this place, as it's given me the confidence to turn my life around. I have friends here that I could never imagine having back home... and some friends are simply those I never thought I would see again.

It's odd, really. You would think that considering the amount of people in this place I wouldn't feel anywhere near lonely. I was given the chance to set my life back in order and to make peace with not only my mother, but my grandfather and my childhood friends. I revived the game shop and I left it to Jonouchi should I ever end up back here... I wonder if he's looking after it now.

Bless them, my friends believed me when I told them about my adventures in this place. They seemed skeptical at first, but I reminded them of the adventures of our youth and they seemed to agree the Dressing Room almost paled in comparison. They were glad I was alright and that I'd had a change of heart in regards to the outlook I had on my life.

And then I was pulled back to the Dressing Room again.

The things I've seen here...

I suppose the one that's had the biggest impact on me, despite the short time I had with her, was when I got to see my wife again, got to be with her again. Dancing with her, holding her, letting her know I was sorry I'd ever let her go to America without chasing after her the way I'd always dreamed of doing as a child. I adored her, but let her go... when she ended up here, I figured I would have a chance to rectify that.

I did, to an extent. We agreed we wanted to remarry...

And then she vanished.

I won't deny that I miss her almost every day, that I sometimes expect to see her in the halls, that I can still hear her nagging me to be a man when I lose face in front of someone... but clinging to a hope is much different than having hope. I can hope to see her again, but I won't cling to that hope to the point where it blinds me from being thankful for the friends I still have and cherish.

I've met so many people.

I don't know how much time I have left here, though I've already died a few times. For now, I'm going to make the best of the situation and do what I can with what I have. (Now to think of the uses for bad ties besides a rope to climb.)

Floret and his older self, Blossom, have been occupying my thoughts lately. I worry about them as I do like to think of them as my sometimes-sons. I say sometimes because half the time they're zipping off into parts unknown and I wouldn't have it any other way (so long as I knew they were being careful.) They aren't really my children, so I've no right to control them so entirely. I can only be there for them to give them guidance and love when they need it (and to always be there if they need rescuing from the boogeyman.)

More and more I feel like I'm getting used to the idea of becoming old. I was afraid before, as I simply woke up one day to realize I'd lost twenty years of my life to a job I hated... but I'm... I'm alright with where I am now. Who I am.

And I won't forget the look of pride you gave me when I was at the trial. I know you'll always be proud of me, no matter what happens, so I have to life up to that pride and to honour it.

Finally, I beat Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!
It's a personal victory as well, because that game was quite frightening. I could almost imagine Jonouchi screaming away beside me.


Well, that's about all for now. I need to feed my cats.

My goodness I've written a lot.

If you could ask your pet any question (and they could answer you), what would it be?

That really depends on what his temperment is like. For example, if he's upset, he won't answer me anyway!

If you had to give up one indulgence for 40 days, what would it be?


One indulgence.

Probably the questionable tv channel I sometimes sneak peeks at. ;)

Describe your morning routine.

I wake up, usually because it's time to feed my cat, get out of bed, take off my night clothes, assuming I slept in any, go shower, use the bathroom, brush my teeth, walk leisurely about my room naked while trying to wake up, put on my clothes, feed my cat, have breakfast, usually a bowl of cereal with fruit, then go for a jog.

Who had the best outfit at the Oscars this year? Who had the worst?

Oops. I knew I forgot to watch something. [/sarcasm]

I met a new Anzu the other day. She's around my age, which makes talking to her no less difficult than it did when I was sixteen. At any rate, I'm very glad to have met her. I hope I can see her again.

In other new, I bought some new supplies for when I bathe Atem. That cat has gotten my forearms so clawed up that I'm beginning to think about doubling the rubber gloves... but I bought this scrub-brush that apparently works to help soothe cats as you're bathing them. In all honesty, just so long as I can get Atem's toes in the water without him clawing my face apart I'm happy.

What creature would you choose as your spirit animal?

A Raven. They're poetic souls and very strong, as well as clever. I think he would remind me of someone I knew a long time ago.

Then again, perhaps because of my cat, I wouldn't even need a spirit animal.

I doubt mine will be much to look at in comparison, but I'm only doing this because I find it funny.

That kink meme Bakura seemed so proud of.Collapse )

I found this really describes how old maid thought of the Pharaoh.

Looks like someone misses the Pharaoh a little...Collapse )
