>> Can I just say how excited I was to get that invite code in my inbox this morning?

>> Other than DreamWidth's Open Beta, not much has been happening with me. Except that I've adopted a newborn puppy, of course. |DD Kai is ten days old today, and a cocker spaniel mix. Bethany isn't sure what the father was (though she thinks it might have been shih tzu!). Anyway, the mother was put down on Monday, and I've been taking care of him ever since. I'm pretty much head over heels for him; he's the sweetest, most adorable thing in the history of ever. ♥

>> Considering how long I tried to avoid Axis Powers Hetalia, it's a little sad how completely addicted I've become. America and Germany are my favourites (no surprise there) but England and Russia are close behind them. And also Lithuania. And Poland, Prussia, Austria, Japan, China, Belarus, Latvia ... The thing is, it's such an interesting way to learn about everything. I've spent the past few hours reading everything I can find on Henry Bergh, and it's amazing how easily everything ties in to this idea of anthropomorphised nations. *g* (And I totally ship America/Israel. Even if Israel hasn't been introduced yet.)

>> *related to the above note* I'm also going to try reading Dostoevsky. :/ I will probably fail, but I'm going to try. Because Himaruya's Russia is convincing that way.

>> Also, someone needs to write some America/Russia/Nureyev for me. Not in the shippy way, just in the defection/loss kind of way. *just got her copy of Nureyev's La Bayadère, what*
