Ask A Staffer Edda 11 - Nobu

What you've all been waiting for, right? No dumb fishies or hobos here!

Rest assured I will answer every question that comes at me, but due to my schedule over the next couple days they will probably come in big bursts of answery goodness. Like if someone pinched the answer hose, and then let out a whole bunch at once.

I see that you have a DeviantArt, out of curiosity, do you sketch often, or very rarely?

If this is supposed to be a pun, I have no idea what you're trying to get at. :V

Not as often as I'd like to, but ideally I'll have more time to indulge once I'm done with this semester.

Why Linguistics?

Because language has always been something that has fascinated me from an earlier age, and it goes hand in hand with my interest in the academic study of humanity, specifically in the realms of culture and the mind.

Why don't you protect your cutting points?

Because you've fallen right into my trap.  :moogy:


Who drew your avatar, and where is a full version?

I'd like to hold off on answering this for a couple days, since I was planning on making a thread that'll indirectly answer both of those questions very soon :3


Why am I your favourite?

Somehow, you are granted infinite funds to spend however you desire.  What is the first thing you spend it on?

Most fond memory of MotK?

Because of that one time when we ---

I'd buy all shares of shrinemaiden.org and recraft the forum into the best alternative porn, warez, and doujin game selling site on the net. +_+

In all seriousness, end world hunger. And then soon after fund a team of scientists and researchers to research the ramifications of ending world hunger and how much sooner it'll be before the world's resources run out. But with infinite funds I could probably fund the colonization of space, so...

As for most fond memory, I don't know if this counts as 'Most fond' but is still a fond one nonetheless.. Sitting in the middle of the boonies in far north Japan by Aomori, and chatting it up on IRC and on the forums while marveling that I was in a completely different time zone than normal. :V I'll be able to better answer this question if I thought about it more, since there are a lot of memories.

Since you were one of the first janitors - how bad a shape must the shrine be in if it needs 5 people nowadays to keep it clean? :<

The truth is, SJ power is a finite source and split evenly amongst all the current SJs. Why do you think there's a bloody axe in their icons anyway? They're supposed to fight to the death and ascend to the ranks of godhood.

Me, Vic, and Matsy got along too well to fight though. :<

What's your preferred type of pizza?
Strangest topping you've ever seen on a pizza?

Favorite Castlevania game, if applicable?

I looooove mushrooms. Mushroom, cheese and pepperoni is a staple. As long as there's no pineapple, yech.
Strangest toppings: Here.
Favorite Castlevania would be the first one. But there are a lot of Castlevanias I haven't played that have been released in the past 5-10 years. .

Hey, I know plenty of girls named Edda! This thread title really threw me.

Non-serious question: When a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist and a big round thing in your face, you get ___________.

Serious question: Can you think of a defining moment in your life that taught you more about yourself?

Why Suwako?

Yes, but it's diluted!
Spoiler:
Actually the real reason is that Matsuri broke all the spare brooms we had, so they're all sharing the rusty models we had stored in the shed.

Iris! Because I have a thing for the loli high energy types. Which has a lot to do with why I like Suwako as well. But with Suwako, it's a bit more than that. She's fun, carefree, slightly impish, and not an idiot. She's dynamic, vivid, and can be portrayed in a lot of different ways that aren't completely out of character for her. It's not so much that she takes nothing seriously, but you get the impression that she's transcended beyond mere mortal concerns. I still feel like I haven't explained my love for the character, but this is my stab at it.

Is this a question?

Serious one here: How long have you known about Touhou?

This question makes my brain hurt.

As for how long I've known about Touhou... 3-4 years now? My first encounter was with a video of IN Extra stage on Youtube, and a friend of mine at school playing it on his laptop.  I started playing Touhou right around when 10 came out, and liked it enough to register here in August of 2009.

NOBUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


What do you think of members that joined during August '09?

HSMMMMMMMMMMMMmmm.

Lame. The whole lot of 'em. Nothing but beggars and charlatans.

Non-serious question: When a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist and a big round thing in your face, you get ___________.

Serious question: Can you think of a defining moment in your life that taught you more about yourself?

....far far away. Jesus christ woman what is wrong with your waist D:

Defining moment, eh? Hmm... probably a couple/few years ago when I learned more about and solidified my own personal philosophy about live, love, and
relationships. It's a story that has a long build up I don't really feel like recalling here, but it involved me and another person in a car having a conversation.

Why am I your favourite?

Should I change Trials and Tribulations of a Makai Butterfly's status to "neglected FOREVER"?

Because you actually still remember that story in progress ;_;

I might have some time in May between graduation and moving out where I can work on it. *crossing fingers*


If I remember correctly, you're a vodka person, just like me!

Do you have any favorite makers? Is there anything you like to mix it in more than anything else?

Yes!

M-Makers? Can you rephrase your question? O_o

Why do you have no boobs? :3c

Because MY HORMONES AND I ARE NOT ON SPEAKING TERMS, OKAY? >:<

If you were perilously close to an edge, would you shatter?

I'm not afraid of heights, so probably not.

Nobu! What happened to that thing you promised to work on. You know, *that* one! >:[

orz


Why are you such a slut?

Because people like you come calling~ <3

What's your ideal living environment?

Ever seen a tornado before?

How big is your stack of anime DVDs (you have one, right)?

Ideally living with some people that I get along with well, in a city or college town. I'm pretty social and love cooking for people. It'd be great if I could have a nice big area I could rat-proof so I could get a bunch of rats and free-range them like this.

As for tornadoes, never in person.

As for anime, I have a small stack. I'd say it's only about a foot or two tall from the floor. I actually have a bunch of anime on VHS still (but no VCR to play them)  :]

What do you think you could cook up with these items?
  • A tin of Tuna
  • Del Monte Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • Beef Rice-A-Roni
  • Bland name Chicken-flavor Stuffing Mix

When in doubt, stir fry! :D I'd probably get a bunch of broccoli, mushrooms, and olive oil and cook them in a big wok. Leaving out the Sloppy Joe sauce mix most likely, since I hate sweetness in my savory foods.


I'll answer Shadoweh's question on my next bulk response, since I have to pack up and leave the building I'm currently in >_<
