That sucks. Oh well, another reason not to be using Netflix I guess.

@Mahlua: Girl don't even get me started on Crunchyroll ads. Man, they would play the same 15 second ad three times in a row and then throw in a thirty second ad in your face for good measure. Their adds were so annoying that I damn near bought the premium service.

UK Netflix has FMA, Brotherhood and the film Star of Milos, I've just started watching FMA. Have watched Brotherhood and Star of Milos, both are great.

I'm now about to start another job but means my lunch breaks are only 30 minutes long (but i have a 20 minute bus ride after driving) lots of Anime to watch with free streaming on my phone :)

Tfw you go into work to help fix a minor issue and end up with more issues than you did eight hours ago...


Yup. Weekend is off to a great start.

Another uninteresting update of my journey.

I discovered my true family name! It was changed 4 generations ago, and well now that I know it...I'm happy it changed. It's not even a cool one either. I found some people I have a super distant connection to on Geni and they where able to find out the names up to 5 generations ago on my Finnish grandpa's side. I said previously I found my grandma's complete bloodline going back to the 1600's, but nothing for my grandpa. In no time at all to barely any effort of my own I unlocked a great family mystery. It may seem like a minor thing, and most people may care little about this stuff for their own bloodlines, but it's those little things that tell the story of how all this chance and all these situations made us into being. I'm of the belief that I would've been born regardless, because how would I know otherwise, but this simple stuff is making me think...strange, but whatever! It makes me want to be a better person this new knowledge of my family, oddly enough.

So yes, at the times the Internet does little wonders...I can only hope this "journey" and slightly obsessive interest of mine has me go to Kalajoki and Karelia one of these days...nowhere else in the world I'd rather visit.

Umm...nope. can't say we've had it come up before. Maybe try making a whole new one? A pole I mean. If that doesn't work, make a topic purely for poling purposes.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

Yeah making another topic for each battle for the votes to work will probably be your best bet, as far as I understand the forum code as it currently stands.
