F1U! Where, Wonderduck?

I ended up sleeping instead of doing the F1U! for Monza.  It was a good race, well worth your time to watch it if you can.  But this weekend has either been annoying (Saturday), or relaxing (Sunday, Monday).

The plan had been to do it Monday morning... get up, do morning things, sit down at the computer and bang the writeup out... but I didn't actually get up until 1130a.  So I got up, did morning things in what technically turned out to be the afternoon, had lunch, put together what is basically a one-shelf bookcase, though that's not what I'll be using it for, fiddled about, then I took a nap around about 630p.  I had intended to to wake up at 9p and do the writeup then.

Intentions are not what happened.  I actually woke up at 11p.  Which brings us to now.  But it was a nice nap, and with the office on mandatory 10 hours of OT this week even with the holiday, a nap that is likely to be needed.

I did try to get some of that OT in on Saturday, but the system was down.  The system was down.  The system was down.  Down down down. Zakazakazakazakazaka system systemsystemsystem.  The system was down.  Which pissed me off to no end, since I had willingly come in on a day off to do work.  Okay, not that willingly.  Which made it worse, actually!

So, yeah, OT sucks. I'll do F1U! on Tuesday.  Hope y'all had a good holiday off, or for my non-US readers, a good monday.

1 *looks at picture* And where IS our next great feel-good slice-of-life girls-doing-obscure-activity anime, anyway?
Speaking of anime, I'm several episodes into Love Live! and I'm enjoying it far more than expected. (Moreso than I am Revue Starlight, come to think of it.) The writing's moderately smart and sharp and it's adorable as all heck. Thanks for the rec, good sir.

I enjoyed Love Live! more than Revue Starlight, but that is primarily because I enjoyed the original Love Live! a great deal.  It was less expensive to enjoy than Idolmaster.

Revue Starlight is, if you can get pass the PCP-fueled trip that is the first two episodes, an enjoyable series so far.  It is an insane mix of Love Live! meets Utena, or even Yuki Yuna is a Hero.  It is not the best show in the season, but unlike Cells at Work, I did not have to watch an episode that made me angry at an anime (For the third time ever.).

5 I'm a Love Live Sunshine guy, m'self.  It's not often you get to see an idol group actually FAIL at their main goal, but LLS did.

6 I could never get into Sunshine, though the backlog I had at the time (And still possess.) did not help.

7 CXT, while I obviously don't agree with you, I can certainly understand liking the first LL series over the second.  It's not like there aren't a ton of similarities between them after all.  Even the girls are more or less duplicated.
I just like the LLS girls MORE.  What it comes down to is that they're almost all hicks from the sticks.  Either Riko and Mari have much greater exposure to the city than all the rest combined.  Riko is actually from Tokyo, having moved out for good reasons, and Mari's American father is a hotel magnate, she's lived all over the world.
But the rest?  Well, back when I lived in Minnesota my ha-ha-only-serious description of where I lived was "People from Mankato go to the Twin Cities for fun.  People from New Ulm go to Mankato."
LLS essentially takes place in New Ulm.  I like that.

8 I'm nowhere near Sunshine yet. Still only about 2/3 through original-LL.
