REFEREE KAYUUUUUUUUUUU

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
So, okay, I got ABRUPTLY VOLUNTEERED FOR this legal clinic on Wednesday. It was on Thursday night, and then they were HERE YOU GO THE CASELIST ♥ and that's when I realised I had to prepare seven entirely new cases between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening. I went into PANIC LOCKDOWN and then I thought Hell, if I can do this, there is going to be so little that is going to scare me after that.



oh God, last night I got back past 10pm (volunteering at a legal clinic), and tonight I got back near midnight (... LAWSOC EVENT)- and the crazy thing is that I'm really starting to realise that you can actually wake up thinking about your job, go to sleep thinking about your job, dream about your job, and if you wanted to you could CHOOSE to hang with only people from or associated with your job, and the saddest part of the whole deal is part of me thinks it can't get much better than this.

BUT PLEASE I MUST ADVISE YOU. If you are ever attacked by someone with a can of insecticide, please do not under any circumstances open your mouth.

Ladies and gentlemen,


WELCOME TO MY JOB

oh god. On the Thursday morning I was feeling so smashed by the clinic stressout that before going to work (ALL BEFORE OFFICE HOURS AT 9AM, OKAY) I curled up in Starbucks and had coffee and did my case preparation, and happened to pick up a paper lying on the sofa. I think it was one of those incredibly pretentious and wordy foreign newspapers in the line of the Wall Street Journal (I AM SORRY. I READ CURRENT AFFAIRS FOR THE LAW. I SUCK.) AND IT HAD THIS CARTOON. And I was so tired and such a nervous wreck, but it made me grin (as did the incredibly cheerful guy who was behind the counter at Starbucks. Made my morning, I tell you. And I tell you, service staff make a difference.


also I am one of those really freaky people that always play this secret game with service staff, especially if they look really tired and grouchy: I always have this private competition with myself to see if I can make them smile. So, say I go to a subway counter to get a top-up and the person looks really grouchy, I always smile my brightest smile and thank them and tell them to have a good day. AND SOMETIMES IT WORKS AMAZINGLY. ♥ There was this reallllly cranky-looking guy who was behind the counter at the train station, and I did the smile thing, and HE SMILED BACK. And it was doubly incredibly because I was SO SUPERSURE THAT HE WOULD NOT SMILE BACK BUT WANTED TO TRY ANYWAY.








... I think this last one is probably a joke only lawyers find funny :(((

I DON'T KNOW WHY ALL THE COMICS ARE GOING ON TO LEGAL/COURTROOM THEMES THIS WEEK. ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING. Even Peanuts has Snoopy as a "World Famous Attorney" defending Peter Rabbit and Trying To Prove to Your Honour that "My client never had any intention of going into Mr. Mcgregor's garden."



Also I got these amazing quizzes from adayume:

GUYS YOU HAVE TO TRY Wordle.





It is bloody embarrassing how much SPANNER is splashed all over the place. SHOUICHI TOO.

And you can make your results look different, too:



lolololol mafia persona:





So once I wrote this fic, which had, essentially, Spanner as the boss, and Gokudera as his right-hand man, with the both of them raising chibi!Tsuna. THEN I CHANGED ALL THE NAMES, but anyway,



ALSO THE NEXT ONE. I am always of the opinion that these seme/uke classifications never put me in the right place, ever, but in particular I demand a retrial for HIS ONE Seme/Uke quiz. I tied so perfectly in my result that the quiz had to give me a tiebreaker question to settle it once and for all, and EVEN THOUGH MY PERCENTAGES STILL WERE PERFECTLY EVEN, AND STILL I GOT:



THIS MISERABLE EXCUSE OF A RESULT

My percentages tie perfectly for Gentle Seme and Optimistic Uke, GODDAMIT.

ROFL. I'm both the most loving seme and the lowest of the ukes. RETRIAL.


The SEME or UKE Quiz
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as The Optimistic UKE

You are the kindest, most sweet, and cutest of all UKE kind. This is not really a bad thing, actually it's very good. You may be the lowest level of UKE but you are also the happiest and most adorable. You are often a fan of things you can snuggle with and cartoons will never grow boring for you. You smile a lot and nothing ever seems to get you down which makes you a great match for the Gentle SEME. Be warned, though, my Uke-friend.. rough times await you if a Homicidal SEME lingers too close. You would do well to befriend a Sorrowful UKE as I'm sure your happy-go-lucky attitude will balance out their depression. On my last note I will say that ropes, whips, and chains aren't your fancies even if they are tempting - I'd stick to just the simple stuff if I were you.


The Gentle SEME

HAHA yeah it works out, really. But it's kind of amusing, because a lot of the school staff, particularly the cleaning ladies, have a particularly vicious sense of humour and aren't afraid at all to take potshots at the administration. And your day is happier by listening to them and they're happy that people listen to them, and what the administration doesn't hear, the administration doesn't have to hear-

It's something like that!

Also, I did your REALLY WEIRD FST THING there is actually a VAGUE LOGIC behind it surprisingly enough D:

it was honestly harder to put together than the Byakuran and Longchamp one and that is SAYING SOMETHING
3rd-Aug-2008 03:26 pm (UTC) - ... you're evil, and your whole FAMIGLIA is evil.
Except for Spanner, he has no real concept of evil. JUST EEEEE MACHINES. ♥

The cleaning ladies I smiled in school always seemed to be relatively gentle souls. The ones in offices, on the other hand...

But it's nice, listening to your observations on the secret underworld of school life. And the Things The Administration Doesn't Know. How subversive. ;)

THAT YOU DID I HAVE TO GO AND SAY THANK YOU. I REALLY LIKED YOUR FIRST SONG OF CHOICE, THOUGH: I KIND OF LAUGHED REALLY HARD WHILE READING THE JAPANESE LYRICS AND THEN HAD TO STAGGER OFF TO RECOVER AND DID NOT ACTUALLY MANAGE TO COMMENT, WILL RECTIFY NOW!

also Mediafire has gone DAMN WEIRD.

........ WHAT. I know you did the Byakuran-Longchamp IN A RELATIONSHIP one, but SERIOUSLY, HOW COULD SPANNER AND GOKUDERA HAVE BEEN HARDER THAN THAT? And you had LIKE ONE MILLION SONGS FOR THE BYAKURAN-LONGCHAMP ONE, TOO.
3rd-Aug-2008 03:37 pm (UTC) - HOW ABOUT THIS FACE INSTEAD, THEN.
Ahaha, the only vague reasoning I could come up with is 'THEY'RE BOTH JUST PARTS OF A FAR LARGER WHOLE (first song) and they're both affected by LOL MAFIA POLITICS (second song) and maybe/maybe not doing something about it in their own way and for both of them ANYTHING CAN CHANGE particularly if it's SPANNER seeing how his loyalties are- seriously questionable. Unless it's to his machines, of course.

...D: It seems to be fine for me? And yeah! With Byakuran and Longchamp all I had to do was pick up somewhat menacing (I mean, they're both mafia dons, after all) and quirky (LONGCHAMP I DON'T HAVE TO ELABORATE OKAY) as well as plain weird music, and I've got LOTS OF THAT. Originally I wanted to throw in this</i>, but decided against it at the last moment.
3rd-Aug-2008 03:55 pm (UTC) - THAT THING I SAID ABOUT EVIL? IT'S TRUE.
DAMMIT THE MUSIC VIDEO. DAMMIT THE SONG. DAMMIT, YOU.

It's a good thing that I've already heard the song before (really cracked FFAC video with Sephiroth and his silver-haired morons), BUT REALLY, COULD YOU NOT AT LEAST HAVE WARNED?!

ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND THAT WAS PROBABLY THE WHOLE POINT OF THE ENTIRE EXERCISE, BUT WHAT IF SOMEONE HAD BEEN WATCHING?!

Also congratulations, that inflicted mental damage to such an extent that I did not actually go forth and consider how much more traumatic it would be if I put it in the Byakuran-Longchamp context.

... hey, wait, in that context it's not that traumatising. It kind of. Well. Fits. Byakuran is obviously the Resident King of Badtouch and Longchamp just kind of badtouches you, in your mind.

For one horrified moment I thought you'd meant that song for Gokudera and Spanner.

On the Mafia politics: I think that politics is not quite something that is in Spanner's purview, but by his actions he's doing something about it, even if he doesn't realise it and would probably not see it quite that way. Fun to think about, though.

Oh, Mediafire works fine for me. I just find the new File Account Uploading System a little odd.
