#Anime Haruhi scares me, and Mikuru on Xanax


Poor Mikuru!

As I was walking through Borders in Wheelock Place last night taking a break from scanning (topic for a future post no doubt) and checking my tweets on my iTelephone (that just sounds wrong for some reason) @Jlist made a remark about Haruhi.

Man, if Haruhi really existed she would totally need to be on meds. #anime

Quizás, quizás, quizás! Of course I read that as I was walking past the manga section and saw Haruhi staring at me from a shelf with a sinister smile. I take that to be a sign that the latest universe she created has her trapped in paper form and scaring the crap out of timid white boys late at night, and I expect she's getting a royal kick out of it!

But I digress. I commented on The Twitters that if Haruhi is on the mad pills, Mikuru must be on Xanax! :D

Alprazolam, also known under the trade [name] Xanax is a short-acting drug of the benzodiazepine class. It is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders and panic attacks.

Though I suppose if Mikuru was on Xanax she wouldn't be able to do as effective a Mikuru Beam and she wouldn't be as jittery and moe, so she's probably under contract from producers not to take any. Just taking a stab in the dark here.

For me anxiety is best alleviated with hugs. My mum gave the best hugs, of course :(. Any volunteers?
