You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out. (:

Doing this instead of sleeping... )

I met Yoshinobu today and omg, I fell in love. He's so adorable and well-behaved. Though he did cry a lot, he was not fussy and didn't care that he got passed around from person to person the whole afternoon. I can't wait for Aya to upload her pictures since I am stupid and didn't ask anyone to take pictures of me with my own camera. >_>



And now it's bedtime.

The JE Fanfiction Feedback & Concrit Meme
Tell me what YOU think of my writing here!


I wasn't so happy with the last meme like this I did, but this one looks to be really mature and well-organized.

Nothing epic today apart from getting told off for napping at my desk by kyoto-sensei. What the fuck? I totally saw at least 2 other teachers dozing off but I guess I was the most blatantly obvious one with my head pillowed on my arms. Boo whatever. Meme taken from [livejournal.com profile] iaoiua but I changed the lame formating and rewrote some of the bad English.

Though, I don't think it's "kinks" so much as common tropes and themes in fanfic, what I digress. Bummed off [livejournal.com profile] happenstanc3.


1. Visit the master list, select your favorite 100
2. Post your favorite 100 behind a cut in your LJ (or if you can’t pick 100, as many as you can without going over)
3. Your f-list's job is to write you "comment pr0n" for your favorites. And yes, bold for extra favorites.

I spent way too fucking long on that.  It's 12:45am already... ugh.  But it was fun going through old pictures. :)  I have been watching beauty vlogs on YouTube... tutorials and such on various things.  I watched this chick cut her bangs and so I did mine.  Now they aren't going to piss me off, for a couple weeks at least.  I want to cut my hair... I hate the colour and it just feels icky.  If nothing else, I need a trim at the very least because the ends are dry and disgusting but I want to get a style that's just wash 'n go.  Japanese magazines are useless because I don't like most of the styles and the pictures are all teased up and styled so of course, it won't actually look like that once you get home.  And I'm not Asian so my hair won't behave the same way.  Alison!  You know me!  If you see any styles I might like, send them to me please?

Because I need to do something to keep me awake until I get my second wind. Memes! I've seen those anon memes floating around before but never did one because I have this complex that I think no one really knows me/likes me on the internets. Which was recently proven to be totally not true, but I still think that way sometimes. What the hell! Let's just do it.

ANON MEME


And the photo meme: ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it.

Anything goes. I'm not shy.

I had to use my Chinese again at work today. At lunch, Tamaya-sensei (♥!) asked me if I could speak Chinese--fuck, hasn't that gotten around yet?--because he wanted me to ask the new kid some questions. Apparently, he's moving to Shin-Matsudo and the school is kind of like, "Urr why? That's kind of problematic." I don't think there are any rules about catchment areas or whatever but it would mean he'd have to take 2 trains or a train and a bus to get to school and that's just a pain. It would only be for 1 year though and he already started at Toyoshiki and has made a couple friends? Or at least has people friendly to him. Mineo has been somewhat assigned to be his buddy for the meantime because he can at least understand some Chinese. I even heard Kimura from 2nd year say "你好" to Yao in the hallway. XD His written English is pretty good too! I am looking foward to seeing him in class soon. I kind of freaked out and did a crash course by looking up key words like "when", "where", "why", "leave", "arrive", "station" at lunch. Though when I had to ask him when he was going to move I kept saying いま instead of 現在 and couldn't remember 几月几日 to ask about the date. -___-

I don't like having only 3 days at jr high. I've got about 4 classes a day, consistantly, but I don't even have enough time to get to see each class once a week. Today we only had 2 periods because the New Philharmony Orchestra Chiba came to play for us. It was awesome! I never really appreciated orchestra music before but it's so fun to watch. Watching the string intrument players get all synchronized is amazing. It's like a dance. They did some explaining about the different sections of the orchestra and played a bunch of different pieces from Indy Jones to Swan Lake. The even did a Pirates of the Caribbean medly!

I'm gonna go water some turnips and think about what to eat for dinner. I think I'll make hayashi chuuka men. :D

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). 

aide: (山ピ → Peace Out Bitch)
I sent Lydia a letter to thank her for her present and she asked me if I was left handed. That's the first time anyone has ever asked me about my handedness based on my writing so I decided to post some samples. :)  Click for full-size.  They should be bigger but I guess Photobucket resizes things when you upload?  God, I love my new camera.

First a meme combo:


1. Write your LJ username
2. Write your two favorite bands/artists at the moment
3. Write I ♥ k-pop/c-pop/j-pop
4. Write the name of your favourite person of all time (e.g. MJ)
5. Write down your recent favourite person (e.g. Obama)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Write your name
2. Left or right-handed?
3. Favourite letters to write?
4. Least favourite letters to write?
5. Write the sentence: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."

And now for some writing samples from my fic notebook.

First, the birth of Equilibrium -- my initial outline.  It's such a mess.

It's 930, a reasonable hour to go to sleep but I am doing a meme or two instead. I'm so stupid.

A. People who have been tagged must, if they choose to participate, write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question. Please italicize the new question if you do that.

B. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag whoever tagged you. 
[livejournal.com profile] sundaecone, [livejournal.com profile] trivialaffair, [livejournal.com profile] oviparous, [livejournal.com profile] waxrose, [livejournal.com profile] cal671087, [livejournal.com profile] everystarrfall, [livejournal.com profile] shourai, [livejournal.com profile] love_is_puke

18 Questions )

I thought this one was 25 things but maybe that's the one going around Facebook.  I guess there's two versions going around.  I'm not going to bother tagging because I think every one's done it.  And I don't think I have 16 people to tag. 

Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 16 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 16 people to be tagged. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

Another? )

And with that, I think I shall go to bed.

This is kind of a whole new meme now. )


I'm still slightly feverish but not wanting to die like yesterday.  I've got a cough now from all the chainsmokers last night but I guess that can't be helped?  Once Nikki leaves, I probably won't see any of those people anymore, or at least not as often which wasn't very regular anyway.  I don't know why she was all upset about people not coming.  I thought it was going to be a small gathering so that it would actually make a difference.  There was more people there than at any of the other parties they've had.  Sachiyo always orchestrates these things and puts together a photo album for people to write in as a leaving present.  The sad thing is, I don't think she would do that for me. :(

It's raining today so I can't do the rest of my laundry.  I could hang it up inside but it's going to take forever to dry without some sunshine and I don't want to cart it over to the laundromat to use the dryers.  I'm lazy, and I'm cheap.

I'm meeting Andrew at 3 for our furoshiki class and then we're going to dress up for classy Christmas dinner with Ariel.  I'm hoping my black dress still fits!  I haven't worn it since Canada.  I've lost a little weight since coming to Japan, I think.  Fingers and toes are crossed.

Alright folks.  I'm putting together a Quiz Show for the third years as something fun to do after their exams are over and I am going to do a Name That Tune category!  And since I can't use all the songs I want to... I'm going to quiz you folks.  You get the benefit of listening to the clips as many times as you like.  Each clip is 15 seconds long.  Comment with your answers and I'll tell you how many points you got (1 for title, 1 for artist) and then post the answers in a few days!  (And from there, I'll chose the songs that aren't too hard.  I tried to have a variety of songs but they are 97% J-pop.) 



I thought about screening... but whatever.  You're all big people.  Don't cheat!

* List 1-10 pairings/prompts that you have been dying to read. Maybe it's a really rare pairing or something you've requested on any of the past smut memes which haven't been fulfilled.
* When you see this posted on your friends' journals, you may do one of the following:
-- Write it.
-- Link to one that's already been written, whether by you or someone else.
-- Nothing, but karma will get you. >_> That's stupid.
* There are no length or rating limits, and prompts may be duplicated (PLEASE). Be specific in your prompts particularly in reference to preferred smut content, seme/uke order, and any other requirements that may hinder your appreciation of the fic.
* There is no deadline for this, but once your ten prompts have been written to your satisfaction you are welcome to make a new post starting over. You may write your own prompts if you want. If your tastes change, you can certainly switch out one prompt for another at any time.

Things I Like In My Fics )

Notes on Ryuusei no Kizuna: The first episode was good! The chemstry between the three siblings is great. I wish I could have caught more of the dialogue but the exchanges were too quick. It's not as serious as "suspense drama" makes it sound like it should be. I don't like the theme song; it doesn't fit.
aide: (斗真 → OH CRAP)
I decided to do the meme [livejournal.com profile] trivialaffair posted today and OSHTwhat have I done?! I already had a list of ten and I think it just grew...

3. Nino
4. Yamapi
5. Toda Erika
6. Sho
7. Jin
8. Ryo
9. Inoue Mao
10. Matsujun
11. Toma
12. Aiba

I am determined to finish this fucking fic before Shukudai-kun comes on. I WILL DO IT. I have 3 hours to finish. Things are heating up and starting to move along on their own so it shouldn't take much more. Being stupid me, I decide to stop and do a meme instead. The dishes also should get done too. I made some DELISH dinner tonight. Very simple but still took ages becuase I only have 1 fucking burner and that is the bane of my existence.

Sometimes it's okay to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fics favorite you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

1. Captivation; Perfection. (Ohno/Sho)  This is the most recent thing I've written, and I usually love those most but this is just... guh.  I think the pinacle of my craftsmanship as a writer.  If I go back and reread things, I usually find stuff I hate and want to change but I don't with this.  There seems to be a bit of a gap between the first and second paragraphs and it kind of just ends but other than that, I am close to saying this is perfect.  And I am such a disgusting hopeless romantic.

2. Anger Management (Aizawa/Hiyama)  My first straight porn!  It has a special place in my heart for that reason and it turns me on when I read it.  Do I need any other reasons to love it?  Oh, it's Yamapi.  Enough said.  Let your imaginations run wild!

3. Your Love Song (Aiba/Sho)  I cried when I wrote this.  It just came from somewhere and was scarily easy to write.  Sakuraiba is my OTP but I have a sore spot for realism.  And being all up in the gay community for so long I've seen people take shit from their friends and families for this very (or something similar) thing.  I thought I got the emotions down pretty close.

4. Mile High (Ohno/Nino)  The first full on porn I ever wrote.  And yes, I did research for it.  I have been reading porn for a long time and I finally got the guts to write some myself and it's all gone downhill from there.  I enjoy this immensely everytime I read it.  And I can't believe I had never (and still haven't) come across airplane!porn before I wrote this. 

5. 3:21 (Aiba/Sho)  Wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] sanctified_x and I can never get tired of reading it.  It's complete PWP but who cares?  I read this at work quite often.  I don't know what it is... maybe because it's quick and to the point (oh puns) and has the right amount of fluff involved.  Sigh~

Tagging: [livejournal.com profile] waxrose, [livejournal.com profile] trivialaffair, [livejournal.com profile] sanctified_x, [livejournal.com profile] andersenmom, ... anyone who wants to do it?

And the fact that I wake up to having all the uploading for 24HTV starting already, as expected. I guess I got into Arashi at the right time when TiVo and TV streaming through your computer is normal and people make watching Arashi on TV their lives. Works for me. Now some memes:

So, maiaide, your LiveJournal reveals...



You are... 8% unique (blame, for example, your interest in ohno's cock) and 17% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 22

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 48% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!









The Blogalyser reveals...

Your blog/web page text has an overall readability index of 15.

This suggests that your writing style is conventional
(to communicate well you should aim for a figure between 10 and 20).Your blog has 25 sentences per entry, which suggests your general message is distinguished by verbosity
(writing for the web should be concise).

CHARACTER MATRIX



male malefemale female
self oneselfgroupworld world
past pastpresentfuture future

Your text shows characteristics which are 57% male and 43% female
(for more information see the Gender Genie).
Looking at pronoun indicators, you write mainly about yourself, then the world in general and finally your social circle. Also, your writing focuses primarily on the present, next the past and lastly the future.

(1) Leave me a comment if you want some questions!
(2) I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better (if you want them to be hypothetical fandom related questions then let me know since those are fun to answer).
(3) You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
(4) You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
(5) When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions

Questions from [profile] everystarrfall:
1) What is your favorite part about living in Japan, and why?
You really know how to ask questions, don't you?  If I had to pick just one thing... ugh, I don't even know what it would be.  The food?  The trains?  The fucking freakish fashion?  There is always just so much good food to eat; trains are (usually) always on time; people are just so entertaining.

2) What is your earliest childhood memory?
I remember... my house and neighbourhood in Calgary, walking to school and playing in the dry pond in the winter.  There was also this heinous storm one year that blew over our fence.

3) You've just won an award for a fantastic invention of yours. What did you invent?
The cure for the common cold.

4) You've been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and are told you have mere weeks to live. With your remaining time, one of the things you decide to do is go on a trip. Where do you go, and what are three things you do there?
I'd go back to Canada.  I probably won't be living in Canada for a lot of my years so I'd go back and A) get my best friend(s) together and take a road trip from coast to coast, stopping at all the historical places along the highway and just having a good time.  B) I'd go and visit each province and territory and eat all the famous food from each region.  C) I'd go and check out all the Canadian wildlife and see bears and meese in the wild.

5) What do you consider to be the overall most heinous look an Arashi member has ever had? (This can be anytime, and includes clothes, hair, shoes, just their overall look. Can be from anything EXCEPT for concerts because JE costumes would have to have a category of their own to rank the ugliness of some of those things. XP)
The worst of the worst?  I think... my least favourite has to be Nino's from the end of 2007/beginning of 2008 when they kept putting him in those trench sweaters with that mane.  I really wanted them to do a Ni no Arashi where they shave his head at night just to get rid of that.  When Aiba's puppy hair grew out in December, that was also pretty bad too...
