|things I've been loving this past week

The Junjou Romantica anime. Yes, I finally watched them all (except the Nowaki/Hiroki eps). I wish there had been a third season!! If I have the energy, I'll do a squee post...Years late, yes, but I love reading really late to the bandwagon squee posts, personally.
Richard Dreyfuss Reads the iTunes EULA, especially "Effective until."
Via wednesday_10_00: Cartoonize My Pet...I'm obsessed with getting my cat just right (and failing).
Dear Photograph, a tumblr that shows old pics in the locations they were taken now. I love the idea!
Ninja Pins...Why did I find out about these AFTER I got back from Japan. ;_;
My iPad! Along with Google Reader and the app Reeder, I can keep up with the many, many blogs I follow so much easier. Transferring my bookmarks took forever, but once it was set up? Perfect!
I also learned a couple of (new for me) tricks to make things even easier. First, the switch next to the volume controls can be set to lock the rotation of the screen! I carry the iPad around all over the place and always got irritated when the screen turned to match the iPad even when I didn't want it to. Now I can keep things horizontal even as I shift around. Second, pressing the home button twice brings up the open apps. You can hold your finger on one of the icons to make them wiggle, which allows you to close them. Or you can just select one to go to that app instead. If you swipe to the left you get ipod controls, if you swipe to the right you get more open apps.
I am also even more addicted to Sudoku now. I need to find a good Kenken app, as well as good solitaire and mah-jjong apps.
(It's sad how many "basic" things I don't know how to do. The reason screen caps are showing up in my posts recently? Because I recently learned how to do screen caps on a Mac! After...oh....at least six years owning one. ^^; I never had that big an urge to screen cap, but learning to do it now just seems a bit pathetic.)
