〆切 Deadline

Posted by meronpan on November 13, 2008

Got a software release coming up at work at the end of the week, so I haven’t made any progress on my review queue, next reading lesson or any other post orz.


What the women at my job are... nothing like orz

Weekend looks a little busy too but I’ll try to squeeze in review time. If nothing else, I need to get emuemu and nida out of their boxes… and prepare for more incoming goodies ^_^

hiyori wants your attention now!

Unfortunately small breaks during work are also my usual blog catch up time so falling even more behind on everyone’s blogs too, gomen! m(_ _)m

Quick Japanese note before I go, in the title of this post, the kanji 〆切 stands for 締め切り, which in turn reads しめきり (shimekiri, deadline). I’ve always been curious about the 〆 character and whether or not it was just shorthand for 締め or alternate character or alternate writing or what. At any rate, it’s a helluva lot easier to write than 締 and very distinct from most kanji so pretty easy to remember. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

    Well, I will be away for the next 4 weeks so that will take the pressure of a bit as it makes 1 less blog to catch up. lol

    My pile of catch up will sky rocket when I get back with anime already piling up. -_-

    @Meronpan: Ah, I definitely know the feeling. While our software competitors are dying or desperate, our company is still feeling the crunch, which means putting in more hours per week. T_T

    But you’ll be glad to know that I posted my final batch of figures. Well, except for one left to ship~ “Gothic Lolita Noir Rei Ayanami” (with her odd little hat, lol) should be my final figure. x_X

    P.S. Just noticed in your blog roll, my blog URL should be updated with an extra “x” in /toyboxx/. Doh! >_<

    @optic hahah, well, at least you’ll be on vacation ^_^ 4 weeks is so long! i think i’d die of withdrawal

    @blowfish luckily for this software it’s an alpha release so it doesn’t have to be compleeeetely perfect ^^; but yeah, still trying to get it as polished as possible, thanks for the well wishes ^^

    @xjaymanx ah yes, i stopped by the other day and updated your feed in my rss reader but totally forgot my blogroll ^^;; it should be fixed now.

    i’m still not sure what i think about those hats, but it’s rei so she can pull it off :P

    hope alice is treatin’ ya as well as she is me ^_^
