*Blink.* I am truly clueless. I never noticed dependence, of all things, being a key theme of the culture. Merp. Whatever. Interesting article, anyway.
I'm turning into a major drudge; after work I spent the day at home, puttering around. I'm waitint 'til seven to start laundry; otherwise, I'll probably just shift junk around in my room in an attempt to clean it a bit and make it inhabitable. I kinda like it a disgusting mess, but other people have issue with disaster areas...poo.
(Kinda wishing I'd bought some j-rock CDs instead of manga at Fanime...sigh.)
