yoshitoshi: yorimasa

(no subject)

When you're weary, feeling small, when tears are in your eyes etc etc...

read shounen. It helps though I'm damned if I know why. This week saw me galloping through much of Belne's oeuvre, and I like Belne, I do, even when she isn't drawing singing eggplants or indulging her thing about Salome. But Belne feels like eating egg whites or something. A little FMA (vol 6, when the only other bit I've read is vol 1) fills the stomach marvellously. Possibly just the change in diet. If I did a marathon read of Freeman Hero as I keep intending to I might feel different; equally if I went back to hacking through Onmyouji the manga. ('Something's happening here and you don't know what it is, DO YOU, Mr Jones?') But for the moment, FMA it is.

Otherwise my shoulders hurt and the story is being difficult and the universe continues to unfold as it should.
