It goes ding when there's stuff


Well that was a strange experience.

I have a necklace of the symbol off Ed's coat from Fullmetal Alchemist (the name of which escapes me), and I was wearing it today at school because I'm a nerd like that. One of my students asked me what it was and when I told him that it was from the anime, his response was: "Anime? But you're like 29." Which is, first of all, wrong on the practical level, but I'm more interested by the inference on his part that I'm too old to like anime. Because, really? That makes no sense to me. I mean, if my mum's friends can like 'Twilight', why shouldn't I like anime? And when he clearly knows very little about anime (I consider FMA decently mainstream enough that most anime-types would at least recognize the name, which he didn't), how is it his right to judge?

Besides, I'm technically 'an adult' which I think means that I can choose to like whatever the hell I damn well please. *makes immature face*
