I'm downloading the 26th and last episode of Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu. It's 1 hour and 40 minutes left. I soo want to stay up and wait it out so I can watch the final conclusion. (Don't even think about spoiling it for me, OK?) The problem is, we're talking about Guu here. I just know that as the download approaches completion, it will start to go slower and slower, stabilizing on 1 KB/sec when it reaches 99, then dip into 0 from time to time but never quite stop. I will try to distract myself by viewing all the previous episodes (even though I remember them all) but I'll stop every two minutes to check on the download. After a couple hours I will go to my bedroom but I'll be too agitated to sleep; I'll return and silently scream at the computer (because if I scream out loud I'll wake up the neighbors). Finally the download will complete 20 minutes before I have to go to work. I mean, this is Guu we're talking about here ...

I guess I should just give it up already.

Woah, this download sure goes faster than the other ones ...

Uh ...

It did not go quite like that. I did stay awake most all night, but that was because of the pain in my chest. For some reason, the over-the-counter acid reflux medicine had no effect for some hours. It went away eventually. Once I fell asleep, I slept through the entire workday. This could prove interesting when / if I try to explain it.

BTW, the ending of Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu was very open. I did cry just a tiny little bit.
