It shocks me sometimes how much fandom freaks out about little things. No matter how good a driver you are, as soon as you get behind the wheel, you risk getting into an accident.

I, on the other hand, am just laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

Let's remember that this is Matsujun's 2nd accident (that we know of). Though, that was just a scrape (and it wasn't even his car) but that's 2 more accidents than I've ever been in. Though, he has probably clocked more driving hours than I have. To me, this is just more evidence that Japanese people are poor drivers (need a recall the day a taxi nearly clipped me while I was in the zebra crossing?). Not only that, they are so ill-prepared for bad weather. Hello, this isn't Okinawa; Kanto does get snow, however infrequently. Thank you, global warming. That shouldn't be an excuse for accidents. And fuck, it was only 1cm! It's winter—rain + cold = black ice. You should have snow tires on your car regardless.

Maybe it's because I'm Canadian and snowy winters are a given. It snowed nearly every day I was home this past X'mas. Vancouver is exactly the same: if they get more than 3cm on the ground, the busses grind to a halt and city goes into shock. I can forgive that because the GTA is mountainous. I'm sorry but Tokyo is flat as a board.

For some good heterosexual romance.  I am out-gayed.  Spending 5 days straight with my gay posse proved to, indeed, be too much for me.  I want to read something romantic and sappy (and a bit sexual?).  Too bad those kind of things aren't really written in this fandom.  I guess I'll have to search outside the box.  Maybe I should go to Book Off and see if I can find something for cheap.  Though I think the best they would have is shit herlequin romances and those are never, ever satisfying in the way I wish they were.  And I don't know if I can find any dramas that fit that description either.

No, I'm not flist cutting.  But I went through and sorted out flist filters so I don't have to read so much crap on my flist.  And took off LOLcats.  They aren't so funny anymore.  It's just spam.  I don't know.  I'm wondering if I should be more selective and filter what I write about.  I don't bother to protect many entries and I mostly just write about stupid shit anyway but... I don't know.  Having 50 relative strangers reading what I write who seldom say anything, while slightly thrilling--it's like being a real writer!  You never know who's buying and reading your stuff--is mostly creepy.  I actually don't talk about Arashi/fandom that much (and these days it's mostly to bitch about idiocy) and I don't think I'm that interesting.  I don't even post fic here, I just whine about writing it. 

What's even more creepy is having random people add my Vox blog to their neighbourhoods or send me messages about Arashi on there because I've only mentioned them about 3 times there ever.  Where do these people find me?  And of course they never respond when I reply to them.  

In totally non-LJ related things, I'm trying to sell my old camera on Craigslist but the only people contacting me are shady people (who can't write proper fucking emails either) wanting to buy it for their cousin/sister somewhere overseas.  Even if it wasn't for all the notices about selling locally to avoid scams, I'm just too fucking lazy.  You want to buy from me?  Don't tell me to set up a Paypal account so you can pay.  You should be asking me what payments I accept.  I don't think I'm going to find anyone to buy it... I wonder if I can just give it away somewhere.  Or maybe sell it to Hardoff!  I should try that tomorrow.

Holy fucking shit. 
My hormones are fucking raging today.  I thought PMS was pre-menstrual?  I'm just bitchy the whole time.  And these cramps are not helping.
