I always forget how much more physically open twdramas are than the rest of them, and then scenes like this one from ep 3 of Summer Desire remind me. I mean - there is earlobe nibbling and neck-kissing, and open-mouth kissing. SHOCK. :P



On subbing The Myth front, I would doubt I'd get ep 2 out until end of the coming week - I still have 20 eps to watch and I don't really want to continue subbing until I finish watching.

Oh, and half my flist is mad about the World Cup, but I confess other than the patriotic vague desire to have USA do not too badly, I am completely indifferent.

The best thing about discovering I like anime? The treasure trove of badfic I can mock now.

In other news, Husband and I were in Pittsburgh this weekend, and the city has gone mad with superbowl mania. There are lines to get into the Steelers' memorabilia store, the buses have "Go Steelers" on them instead of the route, there is a "Go Steelers" sign on the church, and they are selling Steelers everything from Steelers candy to Steelers thongs. And there are fight songs playing everywhere. Crazy.

I have also finally given up on trying ro read Dan Kurzman's The Bravest Battle a non-fiction book about the 28-day uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto. It's very well written, and the subject matter is incredibly gripping, and I've found a number of real life people to admire (especially the leader of the uprising Mordecai Anielewicz who is way way more amazing than the fictional protagonist of Leon Uris' Mila 18 who is based on him) but I just can't take it. It freaks me out and I've been having nightmares about it for two nights straight, so color me a wimp, but I just can't read it any more. It also makes me freak out about 'what if this happened to me' scenario and 'what would you do,' as I realize Anielewicz was 24 when he organized and fought to the death and at the same age I was being bored by my professors (and a lot of the people fighting were even younger) and then I get thankful for my own (knock on wood) non-horrific life and then bad headspace happens and my imagination goes into overdrive and basically I can't take it.

I think this is only a second book I ever gave up on because I couldn't deal with the subject matter.
