* Mansai's film Nobou no Shiro has been put back until autumn 2012.

* Yesterday we went to Market Weighton for lunch and talked about Glee fic for an hour or so. Good coffee (no syrup, though) and excellent food, so will go there again. Also not too far to travel, and much nicer than Selby. The brilliant sunshine helped.

* Have been re-reading [livejournal.com profile] satanael's old fics. Good times.

MANSAI IS MAKING A FILM OMFG YES YES AT LAST AND OMFG IT'S SET IN THE SENGOKU PERIOD HE WILL WEAR HOT SEXY ROBES AND HAVE HOT SEXY HAIR AND AND AND EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

The film is called Nobou no Shiro (のぼうの城), based on a best-selling novel by Ryo Wada, which is also a manga. Mansai plays Narita Nagachika, commander of Oshi Castle, who with 500 retainers and more by luck than judgement saw off Toyotomi Hideyoshi's army of 20,000 soldiers.

Excessive googling reveals that in the book/manga, Nagachika is a bit daft and more interested in farming than fighting. He sounds pretty much like the kyogen character Tarokaja, actually. But presumably better dressed.

Also in the film: Koichi Sato (sensible chap who looks like the referee in the NZ v Paraguay match), Tomomitsu Yamaguchi (a comedian who appears to be the Japanese version of Eric Tseng), and Hiroki Narimiya (pretty and pouting, look here and here for HOT MOSTLY NEKKID PICS), who all play Nagachika's retainers. It's directed by Shinji Higuchi & Inudo Isshin. Filming begins in Hokkaido in August and the release date is sometime next year.

EEE! \o/

Cheap LOL

Reading some yaoi and the uke is called Nomura Shinobu. AHAHAHAHAHA.

People keep saying that my default icon looks like Lewis Hamilton in a cowboy hat. Poor Cesar!

Anna ([livejournal.com profile] easonfan), Clara and Winnie have arrived and are on their way to Earl's Court, and thence will battle jetlag and London fog and general English craziness to go to the British Museum etc.

We'll drive down to Cambridge on Friday to meet them and then we'll do the usual tour north via Durham, Hadrian's Wall and end in Edinburgh with maybe a trip up to St Andrew's.

I've got four books to review first and a short RC fic to finish. Breakfast, then will get stuck in.

And I had a somewhat wacky dream about Mansai in which he managed to perform ebizori in a suit on a chat show before becoming a Bunraku puppeteer o_O He said he was doing shows in London, Manchester and York in July. I was so gutted when I woke up and realised it wasn't for real.

We have three goldfinches in the garden!

I seem to have inherited [livejournal.com profile] diagon’s nasty cold. My throat is all scratchy and my head feels a bit woollen. I’m trying to stave it off but if I have to take to my bed, I have plenty to keep me company – Red Cliff 2, Forever Enthralled, and The Good, The Bad & The Weird. Plus I have a Western romance to read for work and two of [livejournal.com profile] dianebelieves's chapters to look at (yay!).

I’ve been asked if I’d like to be an editor, but I need to know more about it before I make a decision. It’s the second time I’ve been asked so I should think seriously about it, especially if my own writing is shot to hell. I dunno.

I was just reading something else and along came this phrase:
His dark hair pulled into a ponytail, he looked as soft as a ninja.
Right. Because I always think of ninja as being really fragile flowers o_O

I was chatting to [livejournal.com profile] leme last night and staring at YouTube at the same time as watching the Finnish version of Strictly Come Dancing. Moment of squee when I found Mansai’s coffee advert (yeah which has been there for like 8 months, I pay so much attention *facepalm*) and I did a double-take when I realised Yuuki was also in the ad for half a second. He’s really tall now [/random].

Chugging along with the Onmyouji fic. It’s like getting blood from a stone. Why is it that whenever I have a creative shutdown, I’m writing Seimei? Freaky coincidence or something more sinister? There’s two sections left to go, it may stagger to 10k *shoots it to put it out of its misery* Man, I should just go back to that cheap ho RC2 with its bonus extras.

Ugh, I feel rotten :(
