I just spent the last day rewatching Kizarazu Cats Eye and Nihon Series. I have World Series somewhere too, I probably haven't burned it onto a DVD yet. After watching this whole series I've started using really manly Japanese. It happens. I should finish watching IWGP, I think I only had 3-4 episodes to go on that one. I don't know if my ovaries can flutter anymore. Makes me want to just go off and do something really silly. Go to Kisarazu? My friend lives in Goi, I think that's near? Kind of, not really.

Awadflkjdf It would cost me 1300 yen one-way to get to Kisarazu from here. Goi is somewhere in the middle. Though, I have never been south of Chiba. Food for thought. Depends what Leigh is doing these days.

I finally found a clear folder to put my Anan magazines in. Of course they had to be difficult and print them at a non-standard size so I can't just get a regular cheapo folder from the 100 yen store. I don't actually have that many issues (only 4) and I decided not to rip up the more expensive magazines I own for posterity. I want to keep most of the stuff in them anyway. But at least I don't have to think about it anymore. I cut down my magazine stash a good half. Yay productivity!

I also finished my fic for [livejournal.com profile] jentfic_remix. I've bugged Alex a ton for read overs and stuff but I'm still not sure. It's the tenses! I hope I've fixed them all. Anyway, I think it's really good and I'm happy with the outcome. I just hope the author of the original likes it too. I've almost forgot that someone is rewriting something of mine. I wonder which one they've picked!

Tomorrow I'm meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] articulation and we're going to go around Kagarazuka (the area where Haikei, Chichiue-sama is set) and go to the Awa Odori and festival there. Excited! After watching Yassai Mossai all day yesterday, I am in a dancin' mood.

I've been kind of under the radar lately, after my weekend plus of drinking and more drinking I've been home recovering. I went out today to run some errands and get the automatic rent transfer thing set up but the fucking banks wouldn't do it. Mitsui-Sumitomo said they could only do it if it was from a Mitsui-Sumitomo account so I went to my bank and they said they could only do it if they had some kind of authorization from the company. What the fuck?! This is the third time I've had to redo it for my rent and now they're giving me shit. I don't want to fight with them or bother calling my landlords so I'm just going to have to remember to do it myself. What a pain!

I should get on making my dinner. Tonight is the first episode of Orthros Dog, Ryo and Takki's new drama. I don't really know what it's about but they were on every show last night doing promotions with it. I haven't actually seen Takki in anything since his scandalous teacher/student love story from like 1999 that I can't remember the name of. It looks like it's based on an anime or has some anime in it? I don't know but I'll watch it anyway.

Justin just asked me to hangout at Andrew's around 9. That might be fine for him since it only takes 20 minutes to get home, but it's totally not worth it for me. I have to leave by 11:30 to get home. I hate how I have to put a price on my time to see my friends, it really sucks. But I have to be careful especially with the super shit paycheck I've got coming for August.

I went to bed at 9:30 last night. I got up at 6:30. I still feel a bit tired but the knowledge that I slept for 9 hours makes me feel refreshed. :)

Computer is not lagging anymore. Had no viruses but ughhhh the scan took 3 hours to complete. I shut it off last night and things seemed to have righted themselves. I think I should need to clean out my programs and files. There is so much junk on here that I never even use. I only have 6GB free! Maybe that has a lot to do with the poor performance of late.

Grade 6 is starting to learn numbers today. I'm going to have to find out who is running English club (or even if there will be one) tomorrow and have a chat with them about what I want to do. I figured we could just play name games the whole time and the kids can make their own name tags. I was really bad about learning names last year--and there were only 13 kids. I wonder if there's going to be a wrinkle in the schedule again, like there seems to be every week. Ah, I should also figure out what's going to happen next week when grade 6 goes to Nikko.

Everyone's biocycle must be screwed up: there is wank and emo everywhere. Maybe it's because spring is over. I dislike this humid weather with a passion! And it's only going to get worse from here on out. At least it's still cool enough that I don't need to turn on the air-con and can sleep with the windows open. At least it's sunny today!

I slept in laaate~  I was woken up at 5am by some douchebag on his loud motorcycle chatting with some person outside.  Not cool man.  But then I went back and had a sexy dream about Nino (it might have been a threesome but I can't remember the other member).  It was good (in my dream at least). 

It's sunny outside so I can do laundry.  And I woke up in time for VS Arashi.  I had something else I was going to do but I can't remember now.  I have no plans today but staying home and reading/playing DS/maybe writing.  I've got the itch to write some Ohmiya.  I've got half a dozen parts of Road Trip left to read, another six or so fics I have open waiting... and 2 episodes of Top Model to catch up on!  I want to go buy a new game but I am getting my nails done and having dinner with Sachiyo tomorrow.  I haven't dipped as low as I did last month into the savings (yay me!) but I shouldn't just go spending frivolously until after pay day.  Which is late this month because of Golden Week.  Lame~!

I cleaned up my friends' list finally.  I took off all those retarded media communities that make you join to get their stuff.  Now I don't have the same girl uploading radio shows appearing 3 times a day.  It's not like they don't cross-post to the general community anyway.  Now I won't have 40 entries to go back through each day.  I hope.

Must hunt for new icons.  I'm bored of most of mine.  Any recommendations?

I am free!

I am out of writer's block!  For the moment, at least.  I won't have time to finish it in the next 15 minutes before going out to meet Ariel and Justin and I doubt I'll have energy after getting home.  I might not even have time if it's late.  I have work tomorrow so it' shouldn't be that bad.  I should have gotten up earlier and worked on it.  My phone doesn't regonize today as a substitute holiday so the alarm went off at 630.  And then I woke up and heard Love So Sweet...  I kept thinking, "Is that me?  Is that my iPod or something?" but it was actually my neighbour guy getting ready for work, listening to music with the window open.  Actually, we have very similiar tastes in music.  But it was only 745 so I went back to sleep and didn't get up until 1130.  Ooops.  What a way to end GW: dinner and karaoke. :D

The sink is still full of dishes and I do not want to clean.  I should so that I will be more inclined to cook tomorrow. 

I need to get a card for mother's day.  I forgot about it even though it's written on my work calendar and my planner but better late than never.  I don't think Sean is going to do anything.

Ali, I bought a calling card!  When are you free for a chat?

I've gotten my sleep schedule back on track!  I get sleepy around 10 and I am in bed by 11 nearly every night and I don't have any problems waking up at 6 (even though I did hit snooze til 6:25).  I wish I had procured a hot water bottle ages ago.  Sticking it between the sheets before crawling into bed is lovely!  And its nice to kick down and warm up my feet.  I just could never find one like we have at home -- an ugly red soft plastic one.  All the ones I'd seen until recently in Japan are a hard plastic disc.  They all come with cute covers but I didn't want a hard one.  Anyway, I managed to find one on clearance at Ito Yokado last month and I finally got to use it.  Boo to cramps.

So I wasn't as productive yesterday as I should have been.  I vacuumed and did laundry.  The kitchen and bathroom as still undone and I should wash the floor too.  I guess I'll be waking up early on Saturday to do it. 

I am not looking forward to today.  I can't even think of what the kids are doing... something about the alphabet.  I didn't really read through the next hour's teaching plan.  Whatever it is, it's going to be painfully boring for me after the 3rd time. 

I have nothing else to say.  Maybe I post too much.  I should split my postings between journals so I give the family/friends something to read.  I think I wants new icons.  There are too many people on my flist feed that I don't read; I think it's time to do a cut.  I feel bad since we once had a connection but I don't feel like we do anymore.

BAH why does it feel so cold to me right now?

I slept in. And yet, I still find time to wade through Flist in the morning. TALENTED MUCH? I also found a long-lost friend on Facebook last night. It was bugging me so much that I couldn't remember his name that I got out of bed to hunt. Unlike the last time I tried, it's actually the right person this time.

At least I have a free 1st period. But I have 5 after. At least the day will go by real fast. Though it's mostly second year but they should have started on the textbook already so it shouldn't be too boring? Imai-sensei is entertaining if nothing else. :D

SHIT.

Yesterday we had another Hanami in Chidori ka Fuchi, which is the park surrounding Budoukan. I've been to Budoukan now! haha and you know the first thing that came to mind: Arashi was here! -_- I'm so lame. Good times, lots of gorgeous blossoms. I brought my camera but didn't take that many pictures. Actually, that park is right across the street from Yasukuni Shrine. I knew about the shrine, but not exactly where it is. I kind of want to go check it out, but it kind of gives me the creeps, like Catholic churches. Or just churches in general. I love the architecture and think they are really beautiful but I'm afraid if I step inside the minister/priest will walk up to me and look me straight in the say and say, "You don't belong here." Or I'll burst into flames or something. I don't know. But Yasukuni kind of makes me feel that way too, a little bit.

I feel groggy from drinking all day. At one point (after finishing a whole bottle of wine pretty much to myself) I thought I'd gone over the edge but I was okay. Obviously I was drunk enough to undertake making a spoof of the ANA Okinawa ad. Oh yes. I will post when it's done.

My Roswell boxed set was delivered today. That's one thing that will get me out of bed. I'm surprised how quickly it came. Now I have the whole first season. I don't know why they can't make 1 season 1 box like they do in Canada. Obviously it's to get more money from people, even though they cost about the same in the end. Oh well.

I have 4 rented DVDs I haven't watched yet. They are due back on Wednesday. I really should clean up (I still haven't fully unpacked or put stuff away) and put my laundry away and do the dishes that have been in the sink since Thursday. I think my cleanliness reflects my emotionl health, so obviously I'm not doing too well these days.

I still don't have Shukudai-kun and Door to Door yet from last week. I'm so behind. I will get stuff downloading and then tidy up. Then sit my fat ass down in front of the TV all day.

Slept for 12 hours again last night.  I think I should feel more refreshed after that much sleep.  It's raining today so no laundry.  I'll have to do it tomorrow and hang it up before I leave.  Today I really should clean.  The bathrom needs it and the floors need it desperately.  And the dishes and kitchen.  Ugh.  I'm only one person!  How does this place get so dirty.  I guess I haven't given it a good clean since Kohei came over and that was... the beginning of last month. 

I watched Jun and Gakki on their Ousama Brunch interview.  I am very attracted to him there.  He looks... normal.  And kind of flirty with his co-star.  Damn she is young!  And at this point in the calendar, he's only one year older than I am. XD  Anyway, I don't really know what to expect from this drama but I am interested to see how Jun plays a halfy.  He needs to get a tan if he's supposed to be half Filipino, I think.  Although, Justin isn't that dark.  Only in the summer when he goes out in the sun lots.  

Andrew sent me this link this morning.  He's trying to say I'm cranky. ):  You would be too if you had to clean and woke up to rain and hadn't had coffee yet.  I'm going to play some Animal Crossing and check the mail.

Contacts arrived!

Edit:  Fuck I have totally lost all sense of time since school's been over.  I missed Jikken & Shukudai-kun SP last night.  Bah.

Decided not to get groceries. I'll be eating out/at Andrew's tomorrow night anyway and will only be around for lunch on Thursday. I'll just have to make due with what I've got in my kitchen. I've got 1 carrot, half a dozen potatos, some pasta, soba. I'll make it work.

Computer says I'm low on disk space?! Gotta move some stuff to the external then.

Did 1 load of laundry today but didn't clean anything. I'm too lazy.

Is it because it's the spring season? Why are all the dramas only 8 or 9 episodes? I think Mei-chan and Voice are the longest at 10. This is quite strange.  Mei-chan had 10 but Voice had 11.  That makes me excited!  2 more episodes to look forward to.

Why must you be so freaking efficient and bound so tightly in red tape sometimes? I just want my freaking mail. It's not like you've never delivered mail to previous tenents before. (Okay, it was just once.) Why does it matter what name is on the mailbox? Maybe I should just take the name off. Half of the boxes are labelless anyway.

One more thing that I have to do today... I can't stay home and be a total bum.

I slept for 12 hours.  I feel better today.  At least not like I want to puke.  The weather is awful out there.  It's howling and if there were any blossoms, they'd all be ripped off the trees.  I guess we are lucky. 

I want to see yesterday's VS with Narimiya Hiroki but MF is being a bitch and I can't get the 2nd part!  I don't want to go back and redownload everything again.  Why do you do this to me?

My room is disgusting.  I have to take out the trash badly.  I could do a load of laundry but then I'd have to hang it inside (and I haven't even put my clothes away from last week yet).  The kitchen is a bomb site... the sink is overflowing and I have no where to put anything.  I have salmon (that's probably bad now) and chicken in the fridge I need to cook.  I don't know what I'll make today that won't require going to the grocery store for more ingredients.  I want to make mushi-pan again too.  I found a recipe for Cinnamon Tea mushi-pan that I want to try.

Sunday's are meme days.  Copied from Lydia.

100 Truths )

Did anyone else notice that the numbers are fucked up?  It's not actually 100 truths, it's 133 truths.  Now I'm hungry.  I wonder if MF has stopped being a jerkoff.  I should go to the conbini before it starts to rain (becuase it probably will).

No, this doesn't have to do with Narnia at all but I always think of that SNL short when I think of "lazy Sunday". XD

I slept in until 11:30 and I haven't even gotten to the kitchen to make coffee yet. I fiddled a bit more with OT5 and added a couple things. And counted! There are 169 fics/series listed. I need to read the [livejournal.com profile] ohmiyaday V-day challenges, though I want to wait til the reveals are posted before adding any of them to the archive. I read two of them (the really beautiful sexy one and Clint Eastwood crack) but I hear good things about the rest. They are all fairly short, or so I am lead to believe.

I should type out what I wrote for Eq last week at work and see if I can squeeze a bit more out of it. It's going to be the last chapter! And it might clock in at 5,000 words or more since I have to tie up everything. I will not be posting this one hastily. I'm going to need someone to really look over it who knows the series to make sure I haven't left any gaping holes.

No plans today other than maybe write and should do laundry. I should go return a DVD and do some grocery shopping but I think I'll stay in and watch more IWGP. It works on my DVD player! I also figure that it's a problem with the player and not the cables. The sound starts off fine but then gets fuzzy for a while and then clears up again. It was free so I guess I shouldn't complain too much. This has got to be my favourite drama of all time. Nagase Tomoya, Sato Ryuuta, Yamapi, Tsumabaki Satoshi, Watanabe Ken. I wish Kubozuka Yosuke had done more dramas. He's my favourite character. Nagase has such terrible skin and Yamapi looks so little at 16! I read the first volume of the manga since Alison had it but I should get the others and try to read it. It's not very long, only four volumes. Maybe I should make a trip to Matsudo today and see if they have it at Book-Off there. Maybe Tomoko is free for dinner or coffee. :)

I never did get around to buying a tiara to wear.  That's something Sachiyo would do trying to maintain her title as the most kawaii person on the planet.  Thanks Lydia and Liza for the birthday wishes today and everyone else. :)  I am still waiting for a few choice people from back home to man up but I'm probably going to feel disappointed because they won't.  There's a reason why one of them is the ex-best friend. 

Something is wrong with my sleep cycles.  I am not even going to bed at a much different time than usual but I feel so tired in the morning!  I think I should stop hitting snooze for 45 minutes before getting out of bed.  If I just set my alarm 45 minutes later, I could have 45 minutes more real sleep.  Wouldn't that be a novel idea? 

I don't think any of the students will remember or say anything to me.  Meh.  I'm going out for yakiniku with my girlfriend Ariel and my boyfriends Andrew and Justin and new favourite American Blake.  I met him at Andrew's party last weekend and it's been so long since I had such a great conversation with anyone.  I'm glad Andrew had some really bad sex (マグロ...) otherwise he wouldn't have met Blake. :)

Today is actually the assembly.  I read the chalkboard wrong.  I've got 2-5 first period (gfkjsadddddd couldn't be worse) and then two first year classes in 3rd and 4th.  Should be a decent day.  Hopefully it doesn't drag on like yesterday.

I skipped wearing my nightgaurd last night to do a little experiement and my jaw hurts less today without it.  Maybe that's the problem?  Maybe my teeth have moved since the last time I used it.  They aren't looking as straight as they used to! O_O  Nooo!  All those years of orthodonticsssss.  When I get on a good health/dental plan I'm going to see about getting a retainer or something to straighten them out again, just that little bit.  They don't need to be perfect but I don't want them to get any worse.  Maybe I will just stop wearing the gaurd then.  It seems to be doing more harm than good. 

Mail from K this morning.  Seeing him is going to be hard.  Being the last stretch of school and then he'll be starting to work as a nurse.  From what I know from Patrina, it's pretty grueling shift work (at least in Canada) and he'll probably want to see his friends on his days off.  I don't even know.  Let's not get ahead of ourselves. 

Today is going to suck majorly.  A full day of grade 5 and then club.  I'm basically just going to repeat the club activity from last time.  Grade 3 are doing their "club visit" today to see what clubs they want to join next year.  Andrew's party starts at 630/7 but I'll probably show up late and then leave early.  I've decided not to drink tonight.  We're supposed to BYOB or something to share and I was going to bake but I haven't perfected that recipe yet.  I'm going to try a different recipe tomorrow and see how that goes.  And I will stop by Jusco on the way home from work and splurge on a scale and steamer.  It will be worth it in the end if I end up baking/cooking more.  I need to measure the size of my pot though so that it fits.

God is it really Friday already?  Where the fuck did the week go?
aide: (斗真 → Pose :D)
I'm home!  And I just realized I could (and will!) get my hair cut tonight and get that out of the way.  Durr. 

Then I can do my laundry when I get home. 

I need to clean up tonight because I'll have some strange man in my house maintaining my internet.

And hopefully it goes by quickly.  At least I'm doing two different lessons today so I'll have a little bit of variety.  Actually, elementary school goes by really quickly.  I've got 5 lessons today which sucks.  I don't get off easy at all this year.  Actually Hirakawa-sensei asked me if I (or the ALT) could come to Ni Shou twice a week next year.  I don't know if it's a Kashiwa BOE perogative or his personal one but this school loves English and want the kids to be fluent in it.  I guess I'll tell Tatsuya when I see him next week.  Can I really handle 1 more year of this? 

So apparently Ariel and I are going out this weekend.  She'd mentioned it on Sunday and I thought yeah, sure but then midweek I didn't really feel like it.  I should be watching my money and saving etc but that isn't really happening so much.  Not as much as it should but that's always the way.  I've got J:COM coming on Saturday morning for maintainence and then I wanted to get my hair cut.  It's that time again.  I want to wear my grey silk shirt but I haven't dry cleaned it since my bonenkai in December.  I don't know if there is any place around here that will do it in 1 day for a decent price.  There are a couple cleaners near school; I should go check it out for future reference anyway.  The little mom-n-pop place at the corner from me will probably take a week to do it.  We're going to try this place called Lex.  I asked my Japanse friends where's good and that's what they told me so we'll check it out.  Apparently famous people go there?

I found my old website archved too.  Some of them don't work and all the images are gone so you can't really tell what anything looked like.  My Ayumi one was really nice!  Damn.  And it had like 12 layouts.  I didn't realize.
