Sorry to double post (now that I've actually done it--Songbird's, Lynne's and Marielle's posts weren't showing up when I tried to refresh the page earlier), but I hope that this post will lighten things up a bit here.
From the sublime to the ridiculous (well from about as sublime as I'm probably gonna get today). I decided to try and do something to improve my mood, and I focused on something that I've been thinking about for a little while now.
One thing that I find interesting from girly stuff standpoint in Guyver is two of the female protagonists' hair style. Just something that I've been randomly thinking about. I'm talking about the chin-length bob-cut that Natsuki has, which follows the contour of her jaw and looks sort of like she put a bowl on her head to get it to look that way, with it parted down the middle.
And then there's Shizu, who has waist-length hair with the section normally hangs in front of her ears tucked behind them and done up in a pony tail with a clip or scrunchie. I know, kinda stupid talking about a couple of manga chick's hair, but I've been thinking about it today. If I had to have long hair, I'd probably chose Natsuki's hair style because it's short and manageable. Of course, if I'm ultra lazy, I'd pick Shizu's, and it would be easy to cut, but probably a pain to wash. Just a random thought.
Also, what is currently the world's only airworthy de Havilland Mosquito is now being shipped from New Zealand where it was restored to the US where it will be on display in Virginia and will participate in North American and eventually UK/European air shows, the latter if the right opportunity arises (shipping the Mosquito involved partially dissembling it and putting it back together once it's at it's home base, though Canadian built Mosquitoes like the one's that's airworthy have flown across the Atlantic and set several WWII era records for such journeys). That means no more airworthy Mosquitoes in or near OZ or NZ--for right now. An Australian T43 fighter trainer is being restored by the same guys who restored KA114, and it should be airworthy within the next year or two at most.
So today wasn't a total bust, but still not a great day by any means. I hope that some of you at least get a laugh out of this post.
I'll be back later
