Apart from some antibiotic side effects, I had a wonderful time this Wednesday / Thursday. Open study at rialian and helen99's went well. Was kidnapped by arxacies and kiarrith, and brought down to join. While there, got to meet rhiannasilel and lyssabard, and hang out with rejoicingapathy and some other folk whose LJ user names I do not know.  (^*^);  (Come to think of it, there were a couple people whose names I do not know in general..)

In any case, there were many things enjoyed, including conversation, AMVs, and book browsing. Oh, and very good cheesy garlicy bread stuff. And other food stuffs.. there was also, of course, much cuddling. And cuddling am good. My last cuddles were in August, at actingbunny's (this is too much fun.. not new, just fun. ee).. so it was very good to enjoy those again. :nod:

There was some quite good conversation.. covering so many different topics. Oh, we also did stop by a gaming store on the way.. and I found out that indeed, I must be quite the geek. Because I held a conversation with multiple people involving mostly talk of various scifi series and such.. till it was time to go. I don't know.. I think I'm still something else, and perhaps I have a few points in geekdom that come through sometimes when hanging around with other geeklikes.. ee

The company was very much enjoyed.. and also we got to see many interesting pets. Effectively countless between all the cats and mice and plants and lizards and snakes and millipedes and..

I have yet another person's permission to be Motoko when I grow up, in any case.  (^*^)  That makes a total of four people.. (mmsword, datacat, actingbunny and now rialian). I may have to fight helen99 for the role.. as she has already cos played as Kusanagi. However, perhaps I can simply take the role of Aramaki, instead of Kusanagi. (Kusanagi was the major in Section-9, a branch of the Japanese government.. she merged with Project-2501 to become Aramaki, who headed the investigative department of the multinational Poseidon Industrial corporation.) This is why I ask to be Motoko when I grow up.. and not specifically Kusanagi, ee.

Managed to get good things done on Thursday.. rialian drove me back up to New Jersey, and to my appointment at social services which he attended with me. We got good work done.. Rialian's input was very useful, and things are progressing nicely. My only need now is to find my birth certificate.. somehow (it seems to have vanished into the hidden realms of spacetime).

Friday is mostly rest and trying to find certificate.. (in the midst of which, managed to find a receipt thing for paying off an old traffic ticket.. which should be useful in trying to update my license). After only three hours of rest, fighting off allergies and trying to take care of things, much rest is good. Went to bed early (about 11:00) and got up feeling better.. probably have more catching up to do still. Nobody's open on weekends, so I guess that's what this'll be.. (in addition to continuing to hunt and try and produce a birth certificate).

It was very good to see everyone.. and am very thankful for the help (the arrangements, transporting, company, etc.). It will be good to see everyone more in the future.. hopefully sooner than later.

I had a wonderful time there, and it was great meeting you. I hope you dont' mind--I added you to my AIM. I really enjoyed talking with you and would like to have the opportunity to talk some more.

You are a bright hearted person. *smile*
I like that.

*hugs n cuddles n purr-rubs*

Cool. (^*^) Just added ya back.. (was about to ask what it was, and then realized of course it was in your profile, ee)

It was great meeting you too.. :hug an' squish: You were also quite bright and fun. (^*^) We shall talk sometime.. yes. Perhaps very soon now, when there are less windows cluttering my screen. ee

Aw, you don't have to fight me for the role - you'd make such a better Motoko than I - you've seen a lot more of the series and all, and are more experienced with the role. Hope Great Seal of Birth materializes back from aether!

I'm glad you had a good time.

Aww, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. (^*^); You could still be Kusanagi, and I'll be Aramaki.. ee, I've always had a stronger affiliation with the 2501 aspect anyway. (In fact, my account number with my webhosting service is 2501042..)

I forgot to show you my 1000-piece kusanagi jigsaw puzzle that I assembled several years back... I found the puzzle at Another Universe and instantly fell in love with the picture. The puzzle was an enlargement of this image, minus all the words:

Took me a while to realize it wasn't a dude (didn't know who it was at first), but once I realized, didn't change anything... People got a little concerned when I (who never bothers with jigsaw puzzles) spent several months putting her together...

Ooo.. nice. (^*^) That's the film version.. I liked the animation in that film. It really gave you the impression of the bodies being properly artificial. There were multiple nude scenes in the movie, but there were no sexual tones to it, which I very much enjoyed.. you understood that they were mechanical/artificial bodies, and it gave a very interesting tone to the film.

Here's the version from the Ghost in the Shell 2: Man/Machine Interface manga.. http://www.juzzam.com/GitS2pix/gits2mmi182.jpg

I enjoyed meeting you, too, Kosh.

I have yet another person's permission to be Motoko when I grow up, in any case. (^*^) That makes a total of four people.. ([info]mmsword, [info]datacat, [info]actingbunny and now [info]rialian).

I might give you my permission, too, if you tell me what it is.:)

I'm going to probably put together a contingent for "The Rite of Love and Death" sometime around March or so if you're interested -- I still have to check my schedule for work and check with the Pratt Library to make sure they still do screenings and that they still have the movie. In case you don't know, it's a Kabuki theater rendition of Yukio Mishima's short story "Patriotism" starring Mishima himself. I think you'd probably enjoy it and highly recommend checking out some of his work, since you seem to be very much on the Japanese current. I'll post something on LJ when I put it together.

That would be cool. (^*^) I have no means of transport at this time, though.. so at this point, I'm pretty much relying on anything that involves people passing through this area.

Which it seems does happen often enough.. one thing good about being in New Jersey, is anyone going from New York to Maryland, or Maryland to New York, or even to or from parts of Pennsylvania to either of those places and such, does involve passing at least fairly closely to this area. (^*^);

Am continuing to work on things though, and eventually should be able to manage getting myself to places.. just not for some months yet, I suspect. (To become stabily healthy and employed and such)

Oh, and Motoko Kusanagi/Arimaki is a character created by Masamune Shirow. She is the main character from Ghost in the Shell (two manga, two animated films, and two animated series). In the original Ghost in the Shell manga, film, and animated series, she is Motoko Kusanagi, the major of Section-9, a branch of the Japanese government. She is a cyborg, in her case merely a human brain and spinal column inside an artificial body.

In the Ghost in the Shell 2: Man/Machine Interface manga, her pattern (or 'Ghost', her individual mental makeup, which makes each of us individual and consciously aware) is merged with a fully self-aware artificial intelligence program originally called Project-2501, created by some government or another as a hacking/infiltration program.

At this point, her original body is destroyed, and she takes on a new one, along with the identity Motoko Aramaki, at which point she works for the Poseidon Industrial corporation, instead of Section-9. She is able to move freely throughout the net, and also remotely operate multiple drone-bodies in the material world.

Aaanyways.. that's whom I've been asking permission to be when I grow up. (^*^) 'Cause she's only a brain in an artificial body, I figure I've got a shot.. ee
