Um. I like books, Takarazuka, pretty ladies, tea, cross-stitching and many other things I can't quite remember right now.
Ask me anything
Oh, and dragons.
One of the first Zuka things I bought - off the LJ Zuka comm - was a Magician’s Misfortune poster. Not opened, in a good state. Okay, I thought. Cheap, in a good quality, doesn’t cost too much. Good buy.
It came, I put it over my desk (with double-sided scotch tape - it was in its package, I didn’t take it out, very convenient).
Later someone else gave me a bunch of Tsukigumi chirashi. Including a Magician’s Misfortune one. Okay, I thought, I already have one, I might as well give it to a friend who wants it… huh, funny - the photo is a bit different from the one on my above-the-desk-one. Weird. Oh well, I thought. There’s a lot of things I don’t know about Zuka.
Then kit-swan came for a Zuka-watching visit and peered at my poster closely. “… why do you have a clear file hanging over your desk?” she asked.
I peered at it too. It WAS a clear file.
"Oh well," I said, "it worked well as a poster all this time and I don’t actually need a clear file. Let it stay."
With time it grew surrounded by other pictures. Other pictures hanging from picture pins, not scotched onto the wall. And another thing about this poster became evident: I put it on crooked (I do not have a good sense of what it is that lets you hang things straight). So the whole composition of the wall was off.
But I needed to peel it off, I thought. And then re-stick it right. It’s complicated. And hard.
I bought this thing in late 2010. So this epic story has been developing for a while…
READER, TODAY I RE-HUNG IT. RE-STUCK IT. WHATEVER.
teestumblr: I was going to knit a scarf for my friend as a New Year present only I still haven’t finished it… So I had to show my knitting to her instead and say ‘see, that’s going to be your present… some day’.
teestumblr asked: When you find this in your ask share five facts about yourself and then pass it on to your ten favorite followers :DD
1. I am trying to read a book in Ukrainian right now (no, I never studied it).
2. I should have gone outside today, but right now it’s probably already too late. Maybe I’ll just open my window to clear my mind instead.
3. My cat wants something. Not sure what - his bowl was full half an hour ago.
4. I want a new Zuka pocket calendar for when my current one ends at the end of March, but I forgot to order one at my last Zuka shopping fit, and it’s too stupid to pay for delivery of just one pocket calendar.
5. I want to learn to knit better.
Bonus fact: I’m boring.
I think almost everyone answered this already…
kujatribal *laughs* Thanks for the intent) Let’s hope someone is ready to claim at least a middle-school-level knowledge.
So basically I translated a Zuka fic of mine into English. Is there a kind and grammatically competent person to look through it for me? Because I feel sure my tenses are all over the place. It’s not a big fic, about a thousand words.
