Ooookay so I suck at updating and being updated. And this post is going to be all over the place like whoa. Also, typos because I'm a lazy fuck that should be cramming.

- So there's stuff going on at work these days - good stuff, really, but everything's a bit up in the air right now. As much as I bitch about my work sometimes, I really do love it, so I have high hopes for the future. I love my coworkers and I love the work, mostly, it's always the customers when it sucks being there. I've gotten a new boss (again again again again again etc.) and he seems pretty cool. Jury's still out, I've only had one shift with him so far. My coworkers remain flawless, the work itself remains either extremely stressful or extremely relaxing. In any case, it's still awesome even when the customers aren't. I've been shift super a few times, which I really don't want to be, but there just isn't a choice sometimes.

- I watched Iron Man on Friday and I watched it again last night, and it only served to make me even more obsessed with Tony Stark. Holy shit, I need Tony Stark in my life, possibly just with fewer psychos after his life. I've been hunting a case for my phone with Iron Man on it - I found one, will be ordering it when I get paid YES, but other than that, I'm so picky and I still haven't found the right one. In other Marvel news, Winter Soldier sounds badass even if it's one of my least favorite story lines from the comics, but still, it's Captain America and it's Chris Evans. It can't go that wrong. Then there's Thor 2 later this year :D Even though Marvel continually massacres the Norse Mythology, but I can't stay butthurt forever. Okay, I sort of can, but I'm not going to. I'll just sit on my bum and point out what is wrong and then end with a shrug and "It's Marvel." BUT IRON MAN YAAAAAAY Robert Downey Jr. is stupidly beautiful and I can drown in his stunning eyes forever.

- And this deserves celebration: I'M GOING TO SEE PERFUME LIVE IN CONCERT IN PARIS WITH GATI OMG OMG OMG /hyperventilates. I am stupidly excited for it, I can't wait to see them, to see how gorgeous they are in real life and how amazing their legs are. Seriously. Also, with Gati, it's going to be so freaking amazing. When they sing Dream Fighter, just look for the puddle of feels, the bawling mess, that would be me.

- I'm screencapping and doing Rich Man, Poor Woman in short versions, and I've finished the series, so now I'm tackling the huge amount of caps I took during the SP. /dusts tablet off. My humor is so bad, you guys, I'm not ashamed to admit.

- Also: The Great Gatsby. I cannot words for how excited I am for it, I love love love the book to bits and pieces and the film is looking to be amazing. What has been released of the soundtrack so far sounds wonderful as well, watch me have Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" on constant repeat since it was released, and god, it's so haunting and beautiful. I can't wait for the rest of the soundtrack though Beyoncé's rendition of "Back To Black" sounds absolutely horrid. I just really, really hope that the movie won't get tumblr into a frenzy, I'm not sure how I'll handle all the tumblr fanatic hipster special snowflakes go to town with it. God, tumblr.

- Which leads to, well. tumblr. I have many, many feelings about tumblr. I think tumblr is an excellent place to go for pictures and gifs. I don't think it can be used for anything else. That's just my opinion and I get unreasonably angry just talking about it, so I'll just stop here xD But I've installed two apps in my browser that makes everything in life much better, namely Tumblr Saviour and Youtube Herp Derp. Tumblr saviour enables me to blacklist tags I'd really rather be without (I'm looking at you, Benedict Cumberbatch fans) and Herp Derp transforms all Youtube comments to "herp derp herp derp". Both of which serves my blood pressure well.

- My Popcorn DVD hasn't arrived yet, the sadness. I won't have the time to watch it for some timer, either, so it's probably fine. I'll make a watch-and-flail date with Gati in any case, so it'll be awesome. If the world feels like it's going to explode from awesome, just relax, it's because our combined flawlessness is causing the world to tilt on its axis :D In other fandom news... I've got nothing. I'll watch Nino-san when I feel like it, I'm mostly interested in fangirling Ohno to unhealthy extents these days.

- Which, shockingly, manifests in my writing, these days I have extreme amounts of plotbunnies rummaging around in my head, which also means I get writing done, but on many different things, so it's all coming along extremely slowly. Ah well. I also think it would do me good to write a bit in another fandom for a little bit, that'll be a sweet reunion when I get back to Arashi again? Or something. It doe3s make sense in my head, I promise. I still want to write Ohno in as many different incarnations as possible. It all ends up with me having about eight documents open at all given times, so. There's a lot to keep track of.

I also do have a truly embarrassing amount of abandoned fics, would you be interested in getting snippets of fics that will never be finished? /ponders

How are you all, dear flist? <3<3<3

Yes, I'm pretty sure I'll love it too 8D I'm so damn excited, I saw it in the morning and I texted [livejournal.com profile] eufry as quickly as I could and just went "OMG YES YES YES LET'S DO ITTT" and then the tickets were ours because she's awesome like that :D I'm not sure about the venue since google searches are quite contradictory. The most common search says the venua has a capacity of 1500 people. I haven't ordered the DVD yet, I have so many things to spend money on these days, so it'll have to wait for bit. /sadness.

LOL /kicks bus

I DO NOT KNOW. Ugh, their cuteness kills me, they are so adorable, I can't handle it. So many squee moments when watching.

Ah I'm happy you got the tickets! I went in without knowing like 2/3 of their songs but I came out loving all of it. Special mention to the triangle mix of edge. This song and perf was omg so amazing! The area where I stood at during their concert was more of a Kashiyuka-centric area. Nocchi went to the other side of the stage more and because there was so many tall otakus around me (till I was a little traumatised) I couldn't see Nocchi clearly. /wails. A-chan is very good at bringing up the atmosphere (she is so funny) ahhhh I cannot get enough of them please come again girls.

Oh, we only had about 800 people when they came (small venue) and I came out telling myself I'm never going to a free standing concert ever again. The otakus didn't help either. Imagine a tall, plump and sweaty otaku jumping in front of you throughout the whole concert. D:

I'm still damn amazed at their ability to dance so damn well with all those heels they wore.


PS: and this Cumberbatch guy along with Martin Freeman, it's all over my dashboard. -_-

Oh, I'm a longtime fan of theirs, I know their body of work pretty well, which only makes me more excited! ksedhjkhsgfjksfd you talking about your concert only makes me more impatient for it, oh my god. It sounds positively *glorious*. Nice with 800 people though, that sounds amazing *w*

Yeah, I'm amazed at their footwork as well. Their heels aren't *that* high though, and they're wearing the bands around their feet, but still, I wear heels daily and I'd fall flat on my face if I attempted any of their choreography xD

HYUGA-SAN <3<3<3<3<3<3

Ugh yes, I know, his face pisses me off so much T__T

Wow I'm sure you'll enjoy the concert even better than me than! =DDD

And heels yes, I've seen Namie wear killer ones during concerts and I know I can never be like her and Perfume when it comes to heels because I don't wear heels XD.

No, I'm pretty sure excitement is not a quantity that can be measured like that xD

Oh yes, Namie's heels, omfg xD

And here I am not really giving too much fuck about Arashi these days because... well. NEWS and things. XD (Also Tegomasu, but you know that) My Popcorn DVD arrived they day after its release and it's still sitting on my shelf unopened. AHAHAH. I'm too busy dying over those two cats to really pay attention to Nino-san. Ah well.

Oh, I know those days very well, you know how I tend to get sucked into fandoms with frighteningly frequent intervals, but I always end up right back with Arashi xD It's like coming home, in some twisted way, but it's incredibly nice. These days, I'm back with Marvel fandom xD

I have yet to watch Popcorn because I'm in the can again as you can read from my latest 2 posts. And I'm the external marker for one of those night colleges. My "canned" schedule looks like this:

(1) mark undergrad exam politics/philo papers by the end of this week so that
(i) the graders can put on grades on them according to the night college's curve
(ii) it is only when that is done can the uni dept can put cumulative average points on them and give them out to the students before the uni takes the 2 weeks "official" break prior to opening for summer term

(2) edit 3 peer reviewed journals that are due for summer publication. this process can be long as there is a lot of to-fro between the authors, the publishing house, the editor, the mock-up designers and the printers.
(i) i finished editing journal 1 on sunday (2 days ago) and will have to wait for the pdf proofs before i edit them again. this is necessary before the journals are printed in hard copy
(ii) edit journal 2 within a fortnight so that the authors can be given back their papers for a final look through and/or approval / make changes etc before a 2nd round of editing and proofreading by the peer revewers
(iii) when the peer reviewers are done, i have to make the changes they recommend to the original papers, tell the authors of the changes, re-edit the papers again, check the citations, biblio etc, and make sure everything is in the publishing house's preferred style
(iv) send off the complete edited journal to the publishers and printers and wait for the pdf proof to edit and check again before the print/hard copy comes out
(v) do all the above for journal 3 which has just come in and which should be printed and out to the unis and colleges by early august

When I finish journal 2, i'll give myself 3 hours break to watch popcorn. then back into the can for another 2-3 weeks. When I resurface again, it's spending 1 day to catch up on all the arashi tv shows i missed while i was in the can. Then back into the can again.

And perfume's legs. Oh yes~

Oh, I'm so totally seconding everything you said about work and customers, it's all true, so true!
Also, I mostly agree about tumblr stuff. I am a very passionate reblogger, because I love me some shiny pictures and gifs... but I don't get it when people actually use it as a 'blog' *__* Oh well. To each their own! (I need to check out those apps (OMG I HATE THE WORD APPS SO MUCH IDEK WHY. Yes this deserves brackets inside brackets.))

ALFKAJFALSFKJ IRON MAN T__T I was planning to go to the premiere here in Germany tomorrow.. but then I received my utilities statement for the past year on Monday............ let's just say, no cinema for me this month. ;_; (I WANNA SEE IRON MAN AND STAR TREK *cries bitterly*) Also, I want to keep Robert/Tony (you never really know who is who and which is which with that man, geez! XD) in my pocket. I have questionably obsessive affections for him.

OMG plotbunnies! You know... I'm still here and open for any kind of... idk read-through/thought-sharing on anything should you ever need someone to do that stuff. Also, I sincerely hope that THAT ONE FIC WHICH YOU MADE ME DEVELOP MANY FEELS ABOUT doesn't count to the 'abandoned fic' folder!!! ;A;

I also haven't received my copy of Popcorn yet... which is okay, because it is still in Japan with my dear soulmate, which means I will get to see her (hopefully) when she returns and I will get it from her personally, so it's all worth the wait! :3.♥

RIGHT? Glad to hear it's not just me feeling that way about work and customers!

My feelings about tumblr lean towards being disgusted about the place - I think it creates a very asocial atmosphere and encourages the feeling of isolation, low self-esteem and glorifies the entire mentality of being without job, friends or family, because tumblr makes it *okay*. And it tries to boost your confidence, but the minute you show some actual confidence, you get called out for being an arrogant twat, so there's no middle ground. It turns into some kind of weirdass coddle fiesta for people, so they get told it's alright to not do anything to get out of that place. /shudders. Sorry, you know how I get wordy xD

We can have our questionable affections for Tony together, we'll nurse it and be extremely disturbing but so very happy in the end. I hope you'll get to watch it, though, it would be awesome! Btw, will I get to meet you at the Fanmeet?

I've actually been working on it *today*, so, I'll definitely be throwing things your way at some foreseeable time in the future? It won't get abandoned, it *will* get finished this year, I promise! I'm just about half-way through, actual progress is being made xD

Awwwwwn, I can safely say that I am enjoying all her phenomenal Japan pictures :D

Wooooork :D so happy that you're doing so well over there ♥

TONY TONY TONY 8DDDD My grandma always makes it a point to call me when there's an Iron Man movie on TV xD She also sends me all the mags she finds with RDJ on it. We are such fangirls fmejflzk also his sass. I love him. I think it's contagious.


I'm both terribly excited for your Rich Man, Poor Woman summaries, and then I sort of dread them. I know your puns. :'D

GATSBY GATSBY GATSBY LEO YOU MIGHT GET THAT OSCAR SOMEDAY. We'll see. You'll definitely get a globe. Poor guy. BUT YES GATSBY. Can I just say I fangirled the WW1 flashback like crazy in the trailer xD? But yeah, no, I need that movie. And that OST, god that Lana song ;^; WHYYYY /on repeat for days now. And definitely, I say we team up and destroy those fucking hipsters if they *dare* touch that movie. Ugh.

Tumblr >.> well we've discussed this plenty but. Agree. No. PREACH. Except for the Cumberbatch bit; I actually really really like Sherlock xD but the flood is annoying, yes. Also, I'm a Watson girl. Btw that herp derp app makes my entire life better, SERIOUSLY. Also makes me laugh a lot xD "top comment: herp derp derp derp /67 likes". Yes I am an idiot.


I sort of feel the same with the Ohno stanning these days. I haven't watched Aiba or Nino's new shows, and I'm behind on shows, but I stalk Ohno like crazy :'D his Arashi Discovery rants are absolutely adorable, and great to start the day with ♥

Your writing lkzejfezf I miss it ;^; I'm so happy that you've got so many ideas and inspirations and that you're getting to write these days ♥ WRITE ALL OF THE OHNO.

(And if you need an Arashi break... Well. /eyes Tony Stark. Just saying.)


I am well.

Also, I love you ♥ /clings

Aaaaaargghhh we can't watch Iron Man yet ... *pouts* ... it's not here till this weekend. The little boy is waiting, waiting, waiting.

AND OMMMMMGGG Perfume ... they came here too but I don't watch the papers sometimes and totally missed them coming here ... So I shall wait for your puddle of feelfest of awesomeness!!! Which will be good and rather spectacular.

My Popcorn DVD hasn't arrived yet either. I claimed a Mother's Day gift. I ordered the Korean Press, because it's cheaper ... but that doesn't come out till this weekend.

And they made a new Gatsby film... I saw one with Robert Redford in it ... a long time back. To me it was kind of lacklustre although I might've not been in the best frame of mind for it. I am curious to see what the new one is like *will google it later*

a youtube 'herp derp' app seems like one of the best things I've heard about apps lately ... And blacklisting tags must also be a good thing. (although I'm not a super fan ... I do happen to like DB and MF ... just a little bit ... so sorry ^_~)

Fangirling OHNO is a must in one's life and I will be there right with you for the ride. Always.

And sometimes for me snippets ARE all that I can manage so ... I'd love snippets. I love you writing so little vignettes will be lovely. 100 word Drabbles even. In fact they're quite hard to do sometimes so definitely I would love to see those.

We are generally good ... although girl is going through some stuff, but I shan't stain this post of flail with it. Nothing we as a family cannot cope with. So we're ... as ever.

Love you lots!

Happy Labour Day!!!

Ooooh, look forward to the movie, it is so so so awesome! I might go a third time if I can find people to keep me company.

So sad that you missed Perfume D: But I will definitely do my best to flail enough for the both of us, I'll write up a report when I can articulate again, I'm pretty sure I'll be a useless puddle of feels for a long time after xD

I have high hopes about the new Gatsby film compared to the old one, I'm right there with you. It does have a pretty spectacular cast., though, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire to name a few, and as I mentioned, the soundtrack is a study in perfection so far. /EXCITE

I'm not kidding about this: the Herp Derp application has improved my Youtube experience by 100% and is working wonders for my temper xD I have nothing against Martin Freeman at all, and I have nothing against people who like Benedict Cumberbatch, I just prefer my dash to be free of him and all his stans xD

I hope everything will be resolved and that your beautiful daughter will be fine and stronger for it, I have no concerns that you all will be coming out as an even more tightknit unity, so I'm not worried :)

Love you right back <3 All the best to your wonderful family <3

(Labour Day here was an exercise in hilarity, facepalming and hypocrisy, oh the government here is the laughing stock)
