Re: Nintendo Wii

tried, i don't seem to have that option though. alec found the language settings on his but mine weren't in the same place. i haven't looked into it much though, i've kind of learnt my way around now. the most important stuff is in nice easy to read katakana anyway. edit: just checked online and it ...

Re: Not microwaving but drowning

i don't have an oven or a grill, just a microwave and a hob. i still don't use it that much but i did do corn on the cob in the microwave recently. it was great! and i always do soup and scrambled eggs in the microwave. you barely have to stir them or anything, it's great. i hate not having a grill ...

Re: The Dark Knight

other than lord of the rings, where a fat man in a jerkin stood up and starting hooting wildly on his own, this is the only film i've seen where people have actually applauded at the end. my review: IT WAS PRETTY GOOD also there were no adverts or trailers when i went to see it.

Re: Shameless style icon/inspiration pic posting

lucky. there's such a macho culture here- anything different is immediately 'gay'. yeah, in some ways it's great. i work in junior high schools and i'm constantly surprised by the way the boys can interact with each other without getting beaten up and called gay. er, this is probably the last style...

Re: Shameless style icon/inspiration pic posting

Of course, yeah. And the shift is quite heavily gendered.
