I wake up to a text from Gati that Arafes is up for preorder, why does this always happen when I happen to be asleep? I did get First Press from Cdjapan, though, so I'm totally okay with that <3 Also sfzlugfdjhfjdfdjk GAMMICK GAME LIVE. I am so on board with that, finally we got you, Neen. And Rain just with Ohno and no back up dancers? This is going according to my plan. Popcorn goods look good, but none of them really screams at me. Might get a clearfile if I can be bothered. We'll see!
A huge thank you to i_am_zan for the pretty card and the lovely, lovely words, it made me seriously, really happy, so thank you so much <3 I love snail mail, okay? <3
walking_orgy: I am working on it, uploading as we speak! I have not dropped any colorful commentary as probably you'd better listen and get your own impressions, yeah, no matter how much I'd like to shove my (clearly) unbiased opinions on you xD I also suck, I saw your comments last night after work, but yeah, collapsed, so. It was even a chance of catching you somewhat real time, but damn. Next time? <3
You all need to buy Lana Del Rey's new Paradise Edition because reasons. No, seriously, it's brilliant, I've been listening non-stop since it got out on Monday, IT'S SO GOOD. Body Electric is perfection, she sings it like she's aching, Bel Air and American are phenomenal, my god. Listen, it's fantastic. It's also really motivational, apparently, since I managed to finish my assignments almost three days before deadline, so. I thought Born To Die was the best album release for me this year, but apparently, Lana can only best herself, so the Paradise Edition easily shoves Born To Die down. If I hadn't already songficced the crap out of Born To Die, I'd do it again despite my raging hate for songfics. I can't words.
Anyway! Besides ordering Arafes, I have actually nothing to do today besides the cinema later with my trainer. We're going to watch... Breaking Dawn pt. 2. I know, I know. Seeing as I have only watched the first movie and read half of the first book, this shall probably be amusing. I have little to no idea what's happening in between, but internet assures me I'm better off without knowing. Anyway, she asked if I wanted to go with her, and it's been a long time since we've spent some quality time together, so it'll be good, even if I'm watching Twilight. /shrugs. I survived reading Fifty Shades, I can survive this.
I suppose I should now read my email, I haven't checked it since the weekend, so. I hope nothing truly groundbreaking was happening while I was assignment writing like a pro.
I also hope I can get some writing done now. My fingers are itching to write.
Please update me on your lives, lovely flist <3
HI EVERYONE. HOW ARE YOU?
I'm having a strange affinity for black these days, which means that my make-up is darker and my clothing is, well, black. That doesn't mean I'm emo, because I add class, and you know it. I don't listen to Coldplay excessively, which I think it one of the commandments for being an emo and it makes the stench of emo pretty overwhelming. I did, however, listen to Himitsu earlier. Does it count if Nino's haircut was emo when he sang it?
( Real life, fangirling, fandom (without the usual bitchery) Adele and thoughts on Beautiful World. )
Aiba WHY SO PRETTEEEEH? ;;__;; lkjsdkfhsfhsjdkhf I am impressed with his acting - impressed with how he has obviously stepped up his game since My Girl, which was an obvious catastrophe at points.
/loves on Lotus
EDIT: I ALSO NEED TO TELL YOU THE VERY IMPORTANT FACT THAT I GOTS NEW PHONE. THAT ACTUALLY WORKS. NOW I JUST NEED A NEW OPERATOR AND I'M ALL SET. THANK YOU, STUBBORNESS. EFF YOU, TELENOR, I TOLD YOU SOMETHINGW AS WRONG WITH IT. VINDICATION AT LAST!
/loves on HTC Legend
I'm not going to open a single grammar book until January.
Instead, I'll watch dramas/movies, and here's the list of dramas/movies I want to watch during break;
1. Love Shuffle
3. Aokisanchi no okusan
4. Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru
5. Chichi yo Mukashi Anata wa Erakatta
6. Door to Door (I can't believe I'll willingly subject myself to this T___T)
7. Hanadan Final (with BFF)
8. Kisarazu Cat's Eye World Series
9. Kobe Shimbun no Nanokakan
I find myself thoroughly occupied, what with me also trying to write. Let's see how it goes!
If anyone has stuff to say about the list, I'm all ears. Also, if you know of an amazing non-Arashi drama (except that Doolittle one, as I'm still debating it xD) let me know :3
Other than that, I'm watching Heroes at the moment, and I'll finish that first. I'm marathoning it tonight!
MODS. SORRY FOR THE DELAY. YOUR CARDS WILL BE SENT OUT TOMORROW. YOURS TOO, CLONE.
I will write proper fandom post tomorrow. I have a feeling we'll be snowed in until the weekend, so I'll have enough time LOL
MY BEST OF TH ALBUM HAS ARRIVED WOOOOO
I have only TWO complaints - Why no 1000 Meere video? And WHY ARE GEORG AND GUSTAV HIDDEN BEHIND THE CDS? DDDD:
Other than that, Hurricanes and Suns in HQ is the best thing since sliced bread. Bill, I dig your deep voice, just saying.
So, I received a giant present the other day, from my lovely soulmate Gati and dskjfhdshgsjdak THANK YOU ;;__;; /wibble
And as promised, here is the picture of me wearing the hat you knit for me ♥! And in bonus, you also got a picture of my weird nose in profile yay!
And this is how I look today, just fyi xD
Also, my facebook updates increase excessively while I write assignments. I'm beginning to sense a pattern. But now assignment is done, it's been accepted so on Friday, my Christmas Break starts yay 8D No class or anything until February 1st 8D
And the drama update:
- My Girl - COMPLETE EFFING FINALLY. Aiba looked amazing, but I still wasn't too impressed with his acting. I want to hug Koharu to death, though. The My Girl song still grates on my nerves.
- Bambino! I finished it! Four years later! WOO! I will just say, that that restaurant in Italy he goes to? I've eaten there xD
- Freeter! Fuck you Neen, you are pretteeeeeeh. And congratulations on the high ratings! Only drama I'm following this season.
- Dl-d all of Nodame Cantabile and the first part of The Final Score. Now I just need to watch it. I promised Pants Bearer I would.
- Got A from J-popcon to promise he'd give Maou a go YAY
- Made me want to rewatch Maou AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN OMG
- I also need to rewatch Saigou no Yakusoku, but I have a feeling I'll watch it with BFF next week, along with Hanadan Final, just to shut her up. She's been nagging me about it for a year now >.>
- Tumbling! I'm dl-ing it at the moment. Did any of you watch it?
- I should probably also finish dl-ing Voice. I still need to dl the last few eps, but I kinda lost interest in it. Hmm, I shall rewatch from scratch and decide, then.
- Tried watching Rescue, but uhh, even Massu couldn't save it for me xD
Not drama, but I bought first season of Heroes because BFF said it was awesome. I still also need Vampire Diaries season 1 on dvd, and I wouldn't object to NCIS season 6, either xD
Not drama related, but speaking of A - I talked to him about Arashi and he went "laksdkjsj ew dancing boyband" and I smacked him (over msn) and promptly sent him Believe and Refrain, and what do you know, he actually liked it. So for now, he likes them when he doesn't have to look at them. Doesn't stop me from sending him AnS clips and stuff. He also thinks V6 is awesome, so, mission accomplished-ish?
I shoved all my Utada music on him, and he loves it. In return, he gave me all of Avatar, so now I know what I'm going to watch when I've finished Gantz.
I'm considering to get my hair cut short again, but I'm also very tempted to just get more layers and let it grow longer. Opinions?
I have several writing projects lined up; including but not limited to Oraya pt. 2, Arashi in Space, Imperfect Things and two more. So let's see if I actually get some writing done! Keep your fingers crossed for me, yeah?
Lastly, I miss talking to my Pants Bearer, but she'll be home in five days! I want to have more drabble jam sessions ;;_;;
I LOVE YOU ALL AND HEY HAVE YOU NOTICED, I'M ACTUALLY REPLYING BACK TO YOU. I DON'T SUCK
that much ANYMORE REJOICE YAY \o/\o/\o/\o/
AND HEY MODS ON MY SHIP, I LIVE YOU LIKE FIERCE.
In less emo news;
Atm, my dogs are more or less melted puddles on the floor and on the stairs.
Also, I want to draw. I wonder when I get the time to do that. Christmas break, maybe. Any suggestions? I know Koyama wants me to draw Neeners. Mayhaps. Anyone else? Suggestions are welcomed with reference photo in good resolution and in black white since that's the easiest for me to recreate with pencils xD
And speaking of drawing, I can't remember if I've shared these before, but, I looked through my old drawings and found this XD So amused. I think I left one of the cats on Gati's desk xD I also found one of my veeeery old drawing of Hamtaro xD
And my favourite pen and marker drawing ever, of my late maternal grandfather.
Awn, and I remember going mad and positively cross-eyed over a very blurry picture that revealed Bill's new tatoo at the time, and I tried to recreate it xD Here it's in progress XD 1, 2, 3,
I'll set you free~ And the finished result!
And this is where the random, non-related pictures start xD
Omg, look at us in high school LOL And at prom a year (and lots of alcohol) later xD It coincided with my eighteenth birthday, and I was so sick because I had chlorine poisoning >.>
Aaaand, this was when I was obssessed with winamp and my OCD forced me to have matching skin and wallpaper LOL Guess why I'm not using winamp anymore xD Proof one, two and three. Yes, I know. /pets pretty Masa
And this is from the day I graduated xD The red band on the hat shows which kind of high school I graduated from /random Danish trivia
And look how long (and dark brown xD) my hair was. Oh my god, this feels like it was ages ago xD It was in 2007! Also, wtf is that look on my face xD
I've seen this man up close in real life nomnomnom /pets Die
This was Elliott, one of my true loves, who Cody ate >.> Again, so much hair!
Here is where the TH pictures start; favoruite picture of Bill, ever. If I have said that it was other pictures, I have been lying, because this is it. This is pretty high up, too, though. And I will say this; I miss Tom's dreads. I also still think that Bill looks like Mary Kate or Ashley xD This is still adorable.
Oh, here is more OCD.
Kimi, come back to Formula 1, you are sorely missed. Also, this still makes me LOL and rage simultaneously.
Oh, and fandom, how I miss you ;;__;; And Hyde as Adam is one of the UNF-est things in existence! Another of my fetishes is men with violins. Just see YOU. Here. Here. Here.
BFF looks young here, jfc xD That was the first time I met her, actually xD
This is my trainer and her horse, and it's to dressage competitions such as this I help out with.
And here comes the MA pictures XD MA. And Maachin. Maachin. Maachin. More Maachin. YES XD
Which brings me directly to the other guy I'd marry. SHIGE SHIGE SHIGE.
O hai YOU.
O hai glasses.
And let's finish the random post with something that brings endless amusement. THIS.
