A day late and a dollar short, as the saying goes. But anyhow!

I wanted to wish all you lovely dears Happy Lunar New Year!

I only know a few 4-character sayings, so I'll trot them all out for you, hehe. ♥

新年快乐!(Happy New Year!)
恭喜发财!(Most people know this as Gong Hay Fat Choy in Cantonese, aka lots and lots of prosperity to you!)
万事如意!(May all your affairs go smoothly in the way that you wish! *snerkaffairsIamtwelve*)
身体健康!(Good health to you!)
学习进步!(May your studies improve/go forward positively etc.!)

Hope you're all doing all right; feel free to bitch with me about the stuff that's being a pain.

On the personal front!
1. I applied for grad school! Communications Disorders and Sciences, to be a speech therapist. I should hear back sometime in April.

2. I'm learning to cook more! I made fried rice with fish cake for my family's new year dinner.

3. fandom-wise I'm currently going between my old love of Arashi and a new obsession with Super Junior-M. A canon in which I can actually kinda-sorta understand when they're talking. [livejournal.com profile] primroseshows is laughing at me, I can tell. The fic is good and the primary characters I read fic for remind me of Nino/Aiba/Jun in their various permutations.

4. There is no four? But I'm slowly changing my life in small steps, trying to get out of this rut. We'll see how this goes. My to do list includes unpacking more boxes from the move, replying to people's emails, finish my taxes so I can do the fafsa, and find a new job. Small steps, ehehehe.

5. All my love to you! I fail at being around, but I deeply appreciate your presence online, sharing the fun, the depressing, the crazy, the silly, the gamut of human experience. That's all for tonight. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

So I was at the main house watching the Golden Horse Awards (it's a Chinese movie awards show with entries from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc.) and my mom was reading the local Chinese language weekly. She turns the page to the entertainment section, and the first thing I see is this: )
I just wanted to share, because it amused me.

P.S. I don't do holiday cards. However! I have really cute holiday stamps from the post office! So if anyone would like me to write them a letter filled with silly sketches, because snail mail is fun, PM me with your address and maybe I'll have something out by New Year. :D Love to all, hope you're doing well.

I'm posting this from my mom's computer, because last night my brother turned it on, and it went from Compaq to a black screen, whirr-clicked for a bit, and then this message: Operating system not found. /o\

It also puts up a message about Incorrect Drive A, enter setup, but I think that's some kind of SOS because it doesn't have another way to express itself, since I haven't changed the floppy drive in any way. Won't boot from the CD, so I'm searching for another way. I bought this steady computer back in 2003, and it's worked, slow and steady til now. At least all the data's on a secondary harddrive, so I just have to get access to it.

In other news, got to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] erjika and most of the Lunch Bunch for the first time in...seven months? And erjika's setting off for Hawaii for work (omg envious) tomorrow, and T's back to the Caribbean for med school next week. I missed them, all of us together is a whole nother plane of weirdness. I always swear I'm going to bring a voice recorder to our gatherings because there are always hilarious quotes. This time mostly about balls, like the AC/DC song. :D Mmmm, tasty food. :D :D :D

Anyway yeah, I'm going to be flying to Saint Paul, Minnesota tomorrow morning for [livejournal.com profile] amoraj's wedding, will be there until September 1, so if anyone's in the area and wants to hang? Or if anyone has drabble prompts for me to write on the plane? ^__^

Much love to all <3

First things first: I've been reading various people's concert reports, especially ones by people who've been to Johnny's and non-Johnny's concerts in Japan. And it occurs to me that Johnny's concerts are as much about the spectacle (more, probably :P) as about the music. It makes me think of the days of the Roman empire, and the 'bread and circuses' to keep the masses entertained so they wouldn't get restless and revolt against the emperor.

Only now instead of gladiators and blood, we have pretty boys and sparkles.

That's your thought for the day. :D

Second things second: I've been sitting on this fic for a little while. It's been through beta, so technically it's all right, but I still feel like it's missing something. I'm sloooooowly putting together more parts in my head, but it hasn't made it onto paper yet. So I'm just going to put it out there for now, any thoughts you lovelies have would be awesome.

Title: Girlfriends (School's Not Just For Booklearning)
Fandom: Arashi
Pairings: Gen
Length: Currently approx 2500 words
Summary: On the occasion of [livejournal.com profile] beckerbell’s birthday. ♥ The idea sprung out from a chance comment [livejournal.com profile] still_ciircee made in her journal about wanting to see Nino and Jun as junior high school girlfriends. So…junior high school girl!Arashi AU. There's your warning! Also fulfilling the April (yes, late I know) [livejournal.com profile] kotobayori random word generated fic prompt. My words were: person, transport, tragic, hooey, and foremost.

Notes: Incredible amounts of love and sparkles to [livejournal.com profile] kegom and [livejournal.com profile] waxrose for their input and suggestions and improvements. ♥ Mistakes are still all mine.

Fake cut! In which beginnings…begin, introductions pile up, and don’t believe Kazuko about the microwaves.

I was at the bookstore browsing and tachiyomi-ing after a study session, and decided to re-read the last volume of Hana Kimi. And partway through, there's an author's note. The mangaka writes that she was listening to Arashi's Pikanchi Double single all through the period she was working on this volume (2004) and there's a cute little drawing of a cd case labeled Iza, Now! :D

Mmm Hana-Kimi manga. So cute. Also read a cleaned up version of Skip Beat! volume 18, makes rather more sense than the scanned-straight-from-the-magazine scanlation. ^^

So I was reading the [livejournal.com profile] je_secrets comm, and the comments because I am masochistic perhaps, it's interesting to see the kind of wankery that people get up to.

And I realized, I am That Kind of Fan. That got into Arashi because of the music.

Yeah, you heard me. XDDD )

Whew, that was long! ^_^;;; So I'm curious. Which are your favorite Arashi songs, and why? I still haven't worked my way through all of Arashi's discography, I think, though I downloaded a lot back when arashianfiles was still up. Discuss! :D

So I'm rewatching the Music Lover's performance that Arashi was on last summer before 24-hr TV, and at the beginning of Oh Yeah!, you know where they list the title and who writes the lyrics and music. The lyrics are written by UNITe, who I remember wrote for several of other songs they've done. Am I the last person to notice that the music was written by オーノカズナリ? That's reads Oono Kazunari in romanji.

Is this the underground way that Arashi writes their own songs or something?

1) What's a fair price to charge for a hair cut? (Yes, I do have to ask because I only get it cut about once every 2-3 years ^^)

2) Is it rude to ask to pay at the man's hair cut rate if what I want is, in fact, a man's hair cut? I'm not picky, I just want to chop my hair off so I can donate it. :P

So I was looking at my friends list, and it randomly occurred to me to look at my manage/edit friends page. So there's folks out there that I don't know in RL who've friended me. *waves* I suppose I'm just curious as to why. ^^ And I swear if you're here for the OP art that I'm working on something and will post soon. Really! ^^;;;
