I live in the Washington D.C. area. I know Miguel over at Gun Free Zone just had his own blogging anniversary a few days ago. I won’t say much, I’m enjoying my tea and what have you. For the few who still look at this blog, thanks! I may not have the same amount of traffic or comments as some do, but I’m just happy some people are able to see it.

I’m thankful for those folks, my current job, the fact my roommate allows me to live with him for a rate lower than people around here pay for. I’m blessed without measure and my ties with family aren’t as strained as they were before. I guess we just needed some distance. Anyways, back to me nursing my sore back after attempting to dig out my car.

Gate – Episode 13: The Banquet Begins

Gate returns with its second cour. A new catchy OP, and frankly, starting the series off properly. The creators of the adaptation were smart with their pacing, tying up some plotlines (temporarily for those who read the manga or LN) and laying the foundations of this current one.

Now let’s go back into the Special Region shall we?
