My name is Annaliese/Ace, and I'm a huge nerd. I post nerdy things and I talk about nerdy things, and when I'm not nerding it up, I'm often whining about my job. But don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, I'm just a bit of a whiner.

A note about AIM… I don't often message people. I'm afraid of messaging people riiiight when that don't want to talk to anyone. But I'm almost always up for chatting. I'm a freelancer, so I work from home and I'm almost always online. But if you do message me, please let me know who you are (the first time), because I get a lot of spam on AIM so I just ignore messages from names I don't know. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Picked up some new books from Kinokuniya recently. Got Youkai no Oisha-san 15, which turns out to be the final volume. A bunch of stuff happened that seemed to sort of come out of nowhere, but it was still pretty neat and overall a fun ride. I'll have to reread the series, because I probably missed all the little hints that lead up to the ending the first time. Kurenai Ouji 9 was out (I swear I JUST picked up 8 too, but… no complaints here!), and it's just as amazing as usual. I want all of Koujirou's clothes. ALL OF THEM. Also got Blood Lad v2 and 3. Really loving that series, it's so much fun! Can't wait until the anime comes out. =D
Nur beat Darksiders last week. Looked fun. I enjoyed watching him play it. I bought the Hero Edition of InFamous 2 because I really wanted the bag it came with and because InFamous 1 is 180% my favorite PS3 game. I'm getting Nur to play it though, because I don't really play any console games anymore. I watch as he plays them so I can get work done at the same time.
Thanks to all the PSN craziness, he was able to download a couple games for free, and one of those was InFamous 1! We didn't actually own in (hell, I haven't played it myself, just watched a Let's Play of it), so this was awesome. He's playing it right now and I think he's enjoying it. He keeps playing late into the night and he's going wild trying to get all the Blast Shards. ("Just one more… I swear I can stop at any time!") He's about halfway through it now, so he'll probably start InFamous 2 in the next week or so. I'm so excited! Cole~♥
I'm spending practically all my free time working on my costumes for Comic Con. I'm bringing both of Accelerator's outfits from Toaru Majutsu no Index seasons 1 and 2, and an original costume based on a feathered feline from a mural fragment from Teotihuacán. The feathered feline is my main focus right now. He's taking waaaay more faux fur than I thought, but I'm pretty happy with the results thus far. With a bit of luck, the shirt, pants, and hands will be completed this week and the head will be completed next week. My fingers are crossed!
Both Accelerator outfits are coming along pretty well. I went over to my parents' place today and my dad helped me make his crutch. I still need to put a couple details on it and paint it, but I'm very happy with how it's looking. Everything is going a-okay in Accelerator cosplay land. =D
OH MAAAAN SO ALSO TIGER & BUNNY THIS WEEK WAS FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. Can this show get any more awesome? T^T
