Let's try this again and do it right. Coding shamelessly snagged from [ profile] honeypuffed because she is so amazing. ♥

I can't lie, it was Vanness Wu who got me to watch this. But it's actually good, even with the overused unknown child/brain cancer story line. Drags a bit in the middle but totally pays off at the end!

House (Season 3)
Nggh so good. I thought I'd watched S3 when it was on TV but apparently not because I only remembered 1 ep. So it's like brand new which is awesome.

Mr. Brain
Okay, so I intended to watch this with my mom because everyone and their mom was raving about it. Ended up starting it with my BFF and got through the first 5 eps in one sitting. I am so hot for Kimutaku right now.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
I started watching this to see Tegoshi in drag. I kept watching it for Kame. This is now my new feel-good drama; definitely going to rewatch.

Son of a Witch Gregory Maguire
Liked Wicked so much I borrowed the sequel from Anna. Not as good as the first since it's taken 6 months to get half through.

Breaking Dawn Stephenie Meyer
So I'm a sheep just like the rest of them. I plowed through New Moon and Eclipse in a few days each. The writing is so poor; it's so trashy but so addictive. No wonder all the teeny girls (and boys?) love this shit. This book though is absolutely fucked and I can't wait to finish it. Actually, it gets better towards the end. And has much potential for hot sappy porny fanfic.

僕の初恋をキミに捧ぐ 青木琴美
So sweet. Love the UST between Mayu and Takuma. I thought the "I love you but I can't be with you, I don't want to make you cry" trope would get tired and irritating in the end but it didn't. I don't usually like those kind of inconclusive endings but it let's me hope for the best for them.

Saving Fish from Drowning Amy Tan
Another one borrowed from Anna. Finally something other than the formulaic mother/daughter Chinese-immigrant/ABC drivel she always writes. Awesome story! Definitely recommend it.



Loveless Yamashita Tomohisa
I got it last year but I'm slow. God he is such a shit singer (though much improved from Mola) but I love this song. It must be the smooth choreo mmmm~


The D-Motion KAT-TUN
The next hit in the gay bars. I can't stop playing this song! Finally, KAT-TUN knows where their market niche is.


> playing

Started playing with mom and kind of got sidetracked with reading. 30 hours in and I'm only 1/4 through... it'll have to wait til summer.



coming soon~

Ha... I hated the Twilight series... I wanted to gouge my eyes out.

ANYWAY. I am in Tokyo at the moment. I totally forgot that you were in Japan! Shame it's my last day otherwise we could have hung out. Maybe next time?

PS Happy new year (belated as it is)!

:O Totally too bad! It would have been nice to (finally!!) meet up. Well, unless the next time is in the next 4 months... LOL How have you been anyway? It's been like, forever since we talked.

[identity profile] 2010-01-19 11:18 am (UTC)(link)
Ha. I don't think I'll be coming back in the next four months. Unless I win the lottery. Can't afford it!

Other than that, I'm good. How are things with you? I have been enjoying seeing Arashi on TV. I have even bought some products that they endorse. I am so lame.

[identity profile] 2010-01-19 11:23 am (UTC)(link)
Haha... I was going to ask, what fandom do you run in these days? and then I felt kind of lame. >_> LOL Oh man, they are everywhere. I'm going to miss their faces when I leave. You should pick up Anan on your way out if you're still here tomorrow - Naked Sho! Though I'm still waiting to see if he takes it all off.

Things are good with me. All work and no play. I'm starting to think about what to do with my life and move back to Canada, go back to school. It's not fun. But a necessary evil in the grand scheme of things, I suppose. What are you doing these days?

[identity profile] 2010-01-19 11:28 am (UTC)(link)
Haha.. tbh, I don't really follow many fandoms these days but seeing Arashi on TV made me feel all fangirl-y again. Normally I am not swayed at all by celebrity advertisements but Japan seems to do something to me! I was even going to buy a Nozomi Tsuji x Hello Kitty cup.........

Aw, all work and no play is sad! Then again, I have been like that for a few months. This is my first break but it's been so hectic I don't feel relaxed at all. I have also become mega poor, My bank balance looks so heartbreaking now! I graduated last year and now I spend my days working in a pharmacy, it's okay but only because the staff are so fun to be around. What are you going to do when you get back to Canada?

[identity profile] 2010-01-19 11:35 am (UTC)(link)
Man, I know what you mean. I see stuff on TV and I'm actually like, hmm maybe it'll try it. But I don't think I was like that before. Though it really only works for people I like. I'm almost swayed by Matsujun to buy new mascara. Almost. If I wasn't so picky about my mascara brand and already have a favourite. LOL

I'm going back to school to get my B.Ed and my teacher's license so I can be a real teacher. I'd love to get a job at an international school here or somewhere else in Asia. That's what I'm aiming for. So that will be me for the next year starting in September if I get in. Fingers crossed! I have to wait til April for results. I'd love to stay longer but I'm not saving anything and I could be living at home for free. I could stay and work til July and then go back... I don't know. It's all up in the air at the moment still. I know it's the best time to go home in April but I'm not ready yet. T_T

Just out of curiosity, what is your favourite mascara?
I'm still trying to find my holy grail!

A teaching career in Asia sounds pretty cool. Good luck, I hope you get in. How long is the course? Even though it will cost more, maybe you should do what your heart wants to do (man, so cheesy) and stay until July. It's only 2/3 months longer and you might as well take advantage of it.

[identity profile] 2010-01-24 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
My holy grail is Great Lash by Maybelline. Though I'm not really a big fan of the new curved brush... I don't think it does anything really. But it goes on smooth and doesn't clump and comes in non-waterproof (which doesn't seem to exist in Japan...) and it's not super expensive! I don't need any of that lengthening, thickening bullshit so this one is great.

I'm leaning more towards July too... but we'll see.
