#6139: The luxury of insomnia

Wednesday is my day off, so I don't have to sleep if I don't feel like it.

Okay, it's not really insomnia; I just woke up in the middle of the night wanting a snack and something to drink, and decided to check my email, and--

BakaBT, ye olde anime torrente syte, was warning me they were about to prune my account, so I went over there and logged in. Found a couple of things to leech; I really ought to get El-Hazard set up to seed a few things to get my ratio up.

Before I went to bed, I watched eps 13-15 of Gundam W. The story has found its stride, now, and is going very nicely. Ep 14 features Relena in a colonial-style frock coat with epaulets--I love the costume design for this series, so much that I borrowed some of it for $Release_Candidate_One. There's actually nothing about the costuming which is unique, except for the juxtaposition of colonial-era styles with space travel and giant combat suits:

The funny thing is that I never bothered with any of the other Gundam series, so I have no idea what they're like, but Gundam W is, at least, a well-done space war epic. It's not just giant robots smashing each other.

The series is 49 eps long, and I've only watched 15% of them. Hoping to have time today to watch more.

If I'm not sleeping, making up for writing a blog post at 5 AM. Heh.

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
