What a good thing I don't work from home. I'd never get anything done. I need a net minder that cuts my access after half an hour.

Am reading the first Onmyouji set of short stories, which I somehow never finished back in '05. Probably because I started reading the manga version of same and was put off it, having failed to notice that very early on Okano began taking liberties with Yumemakura's stories: like shoving Sugawara no Michizane into them any chance she could get. Why she thought this was an improvement I can't begin to guess. Yumemakura's originals are nice tight little narratives. Okano's are all over the map and strike me as self-indulgent.

Seem to recall that SSBB has an historical issue coming up. Am tempted to rescue Fujiwara no Hiromasa's reputation from what both the manga and the movie did to it.
