Wow.  I have not posted in over a year and a half!  SO much has happened since then.  I am married to the "Love" I keep refering to and am still head over feet in love!  He seems to have gotten more attentive and romantic since we got married, which is lovely.  He is constantly telling me how beautiful I am and how much he loves me.  Granted I do the same, still...he is so sweet! :D

Do I have to be German to speak German?  Do I have to be French to speak French?  Do I have to be Japanese to speak Japanese?  Do I have to be French to create a painting using pointillism?  The technique is French in origin, does that mean only the French may use the technique?  The same line of reasoning could be applied to Manga: do I have to be Japanese to create Manga?  Manga is a style of comic distinct in expression that was pioneered in Japan.  However, while it started in Japan, the style has spread to South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. (See Wiki page)  Some comics artists in the United States and Canada have started to create Manga.  An example of a notable non-Japanese Manga artist would be Svetlana Chmakova who is Russian by birth.  She emigrated to Canada at the age of 16 (check out her webpage and wiki page) and has published several books of Manga.

---------------------------------------------------------

I will finish this later.  This has been kicking around in my brain since I read DramaCon by Svetlana Chmakova.  In one of the volumes on of the characters is told their stuff in not Manga because the character is not Japanese.  That bothered me.  Manga is a language of comics, and as a language, any one who tries to learn it and follow the rules of the language should be allowed to speak it.  Granted the "speaker" will probably have an accent: I have noticed distinct style (accent) differences in Korean and US manga versus the original Japanese style of manga.  That should not mean that these artists are not "speaking" manga.

I have led a hum-drum life

Boring, blah, and bland

No pain, nor hurt, nor even strife

Just warm and gentle hands

Though Life has given you lemons

And pain and hurt and strife

I ask you to accept these gentle hands

I ask you to be my Wife

Don't know where that came from.  It just kind of wrote itself.  I like it though....

Tarol Hunt has written a post titled "Real Geeks Vs Fake Geeks" and I am thrilled he shared his opinion.  I have always wondered if I was a "real" geek if I had never heard of Doctor Who or seen more three episodes of the original Star Trek series.  Thankfully, my fiancee has introduced me to so much geek culture I feel I may catch up to some of the more hardcore geeks in a few millennia.  Regardless, Mr. Hunt points out that as long as I am having fun, I'm good.  A geek is a geek no matter how deep into the geek culture they are, and it is okay my natural shyness prevented me from playing D&D or Pathfinder or other role-playing games before, I am playing now and having a blast!

Alliteration accomplishes accidentally
acchordant assonance

Yeah. this is gonna take some work.....

I want to write a poem about how much I like alliteration alliteratively. It seems a difficult task, but fun and amazing if I can accomplish it. I might make use of anaphora, word repetition at the beginning of verses, as I think it will add to the absurdity of the piece.
Wish me luck, gentle readers!

The night arouses me
The quiet, slick air: cold coarse casuistry inciting incertitude
I want to run.
