Roald Dahl
(Roald Dahl’s books were my favorites as a kid. His were the naughty books - swearing, murder, kids being called stupid - it had everything. I loved the brash tone to many of his characters. There was usually the good child that you empathized with, but that child was always surrounded by outlandish anti-heroes, characters you often cheered on more than the protagonist. There was a harshness to it that I gravitated to. Dahl was an author that did not look down on his readers.
I don’t know if any other author could make me salivate over descriptions of food like Dahl can. From Fantastic Mr. Fox, he describes Farmer Boggis’ diet as consisting of “three boiled chickens smothered with dumplings”. From James and the Giant Peach, when James is crawling through the peach: “Every few seconds he paused and took a bite out of the wall. The peach flesh was sweet and juicy, and marvelously refereshing.” Charlie and the Chocolate Factory could have its own post in regards to food.
I also loved the movies for James and the Giant Peach and Matilda. I remember borrowing the Matilda video from a friend and keeping it for too long lol. Matilda captured the book perfectly. James was a visual experience. 
Finally, Quentin Blake’s artwork is so synonymous with Dahl, I totally forgot that another artist (Nancy Ekholm Burkert) originally drew the artwork for James & the Giant Peach. But overall, Blake is just Roald Dahl in visual form. His work was brash, messy, comical, and sometimes scary. I see Blake’s influence in so many artists’ work nowadays, some almost identical to his. Imitation as flattery? I don’t think so…
Favorite books: Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, BFG, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, Boy)

Ryuhei Matsuda
(He is an anomaly to me. I don’t think he is a broad actor, but rather chooses roles that fit into a pretty narrow spectrum (usually disinterested, quiet characters). I wonder what he’d be like as an over-the-top zany character.
I actually think Shota has better acting ability than him, but Shota doesn’t pick roles as well as Ryuhei. His under-acting in the last episode of Ashita no Kita Yoshio really pissed me off lol, and that was my first impression of him. I’ve never seen him do a proper cry and wonder if it’ll ever happen.
That said he’s someone who can effortlessly go from looking badass (Ashita no Kita Yoshio) to nerdy (Great Passage) to slacker (Mahoro series). Yet he never looks like he’s trying too hard or like he’s playing a character - he is that character. How one of the most attractive men in Japanese media can look so meak and forgettable by changing hairstyles and wearing glasses is beyond me.
Favorite roles:
Gyoten in Mahoro Ekimae Bangaich 
Majime in Fune wo Amu)

Pizza Lunchables
(I try not to buy these when I go grocery shopping because I know I can eat 4 packages in one sitting. I’m one of those people whose mum was an amazing cook but I get these super strong cravings for junk food (pizza lunchables, alphagettis, kraft mac & cheese).
Each pizza bread gets 3 pepperoni slices. First pizza bread doesn’t get a lot of sauce or cheese. Second gets a little bit more. Third gets mega overdose of cheese and sauce, preferably layered. Then I suck the remaining sauce from the packet. Yes, this IS as disgusting as it sounds.
I never liked getting the other lunchables, especially nasty ham & cheese. Nachos were okay. IDisappointing to get the 2 cheese pizza set. I hated getting the big ass box with capri sun - how much packaging does a fucking lunchbox need? You could practically feel the earth dying (/hippy).
I never got lunchables in elementary - it was mainly high school. Poor kids don’t get lunchables…)

So I was supposed to do something with the first image…and then I didn’t. Lazy. Second photo is a transparent image from the Sansan wallpapers I made (see here), I just removed the background (edit: I fixed it up so it doesn’t look so piss-poor) and a lot of her makeup from original image.

Anyways…

Once in a blue moon, every few years, I become awestruck by my usually abhorrent armpits and dote on them and think they’re the best.

Zombie Pandemic
(I used to play this game a crapton after I graduated university and was looking for a job in 2010. I even wrote some of the area descriptions. I ended up being the #1 player for 3 months…the only thing that curbed my addiction was having to go to Hawaii to visit my grandpa (and I totally stressed about whether I should bring my laptop or not…to think I was dreading going to Hawaii because of it). Even after I stopped, I was #1 for a while yet because I had been so far ahead hehe.
I still have all my wordpad docs from when I played. I listed what each block was, if there was a store - what they were selling and the prices, what each item did, how much it weighed, weapon details, best things to scavenge…it’s crazy looking back at it. I was my own wikipedia.
I think I played solo during my #1 stint, but I joined a group eventually, I’m pretty sure. Even then I didn’t interact much. I’m so antisocial with games…even with minecraft, I’ve been playing the same world for almost 2 years, and I’ve been on public servers a handful of times.
Even though it was beta, even though I was totally exploiting this one flaw, I had fun playing. I’m glad I stopped playing, though. Haven’t played Minecraft in a few months, too, so I hope I can keep it up.
In conclusion, this is why I don’t game.)

Ferrero Rocher
(When I was younger, the only time we got to eat Ferrero Rocher was during Christmas. It was a high-class chocolate wrapped in gold. I would save the foil and flatten it out like it was gold foil. It’s still the pinnacle of chocolates for me. One of those things I can eat and eat and never get tired of. Guh, I could go for some right now…)

Night on the Galactic Railroad

(Another young late-night venture into anime while everyone else was asleep. I couldn’t have been older than 12. I think it was at the townhouse. It was either on Teletoon (doubt it), Bravo (likely), or Showcase (maybe). I remember being so weirded out, but I couldn’t stop watching. I don’t even remember if it was dubbed or not. I don’t know if I understood it or not. Now that I think of it, I do think I was very aware of the Christian symbolism, just because it was so weird to see that in an anime (I’m surprised that Miyazawa was a Buddhist, and wonder why he would include that symbolism).There was just this overwhelming sense of melancholy throughout the whole film.

Trying to think of it as I remember it as a kid, there was so much I missed, but I took from it a sense of nostalgia you don’t get as an adult.

What I do vividly remember is the song Temo de la Adiauo. Even now listening to it gives me the oddest sensation - melancholy, queer, and something else altogether…ominous?)
