You know you've been in Tokyo too long when you start eyeing all blonds suspiciously and 1000 yen movies (about ten dollars) sound too cheap to be missed.

I was also amazed to find my local conbini carries peanut butter. What.

Going to Comic City on Sunday, will try not to spend too much. (He who does not find this laughable is he who does not know the state of my bookshelves. -_-;;)

EVERYTHING I LOVE BREAKS. D: D: D:
NOT ONLY THAT, EVERYTHING I LOVE HAS APPARENTLY BEEN SET TO BE BROKEN SINCE THE END OF AUGUST. WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME. T_T T_T T_T

GODDAMMIT I HAD JUST FOUND DOUJINSHI.

kanbouchou: (hewlett dorkitude)
I liked it. It wasn't a half bad plot, it looked like it was going to end with the two male leads staring at different ceilings thinking about the four-color problem, and I didn't figure out the twist until they actually revealed it (though that might have been the language barrier).

Also, they blew something up with physics about five minutes in. That was cool, and has me trying to find a strong-earth magnet to duplicate things with.

Also, re:the latest One Piece arc: I like how Luffy has had more opportunity for tail in the last ten chapters than Sanji is going to have for the rest of his LIFE. And he's OBLIVIOUS. <3

AHAHAHA

New coat: ¥1990
New manga: ¥390 x 2, ¥580 x 1
Pre-owned doujinshi: ¥210 x 7
Retail therapy for under ¥5000: Oh yeah, baby.

Also, the coat was kind of necessary (I have a poncho-type thing, but my arms still get cold if I wear short sleeves), so in my brain it only counts as half a frivolous purchase. FTW!

John Woo's Red Cliff, or, A Gallery of Buff Men Beating the Crap Out of Each Other Whilst Sporting Fabulous Headgear

Oh yes, Mama liked.

(But I have to wait until April for part 2? Really?)

AHAHAHA Tokumei vs the rest of the force. It's like watching the Jets and the Sharks, only Tony and Maria are the entirety of one gang, no one important dies, and everyone is a Japanese policeman.

Oh god, there's going to be a hospital scene. I adore hospital scenes (thank you X-Files). Internets, I am 2.001 episodes in and I can already tell that I will be MIA for the next month due to copious amounts of terebi dorama watching. Send reminders to ingest sustenance plzkthksbai.
kanbouchou: (hewlett dorkitude)
So I may have gone to Manadrake. I may have gone to the doujinshi floor. The doujinshi I might have ended up buying may have averaged out to about 300 yen per book. I may have spent upwards of 14000 yen on doujinshi. On that one floor. On that one day. >_<

...The sales lady had to split it between two grocery bags. I have another nine months here. HELP.

(On a related note, there needs to be a standard subheading in the warnings on the covers to distinguish between 'there-is-a-vaguely-hinted-at-sex-scene-on-the-second-to-last-page!AdultsOnly' and 'there-are-explicit-closeups-of-buttsex-on-every-page-but-one!AdultsOnly'.)

I've also decided that non-rainy Wednesdays are to be laundry days.

"Aibou"! Japanese police drama! Title means partner! Attractive male leads! Wearing of suits! Drinking of coffee in said suits minus the jackets! Competency! Gratuitous use of honorific language! And an introduction of said partners that went something like this:

YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD: *is held at gunpoint by a guy he was trying to arrest*
MEDIA: *films*
OTHER POLICE: *are back at the station watching breathlessly*
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: *is in a darkened room at the station looking up YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD's profile in the database*
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: *eyes the television speculatively*
CRIMINAL: *waves gun menacingly*
YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD'S PHONE: *rings*
YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD: Hello?
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: *in respectful language* Hello. I'm watching you on TV.
YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD: What?
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: His weak point is his foot. Please give him the phone.
YOUNG AND WILD MALE LEAD: O-okay. *does so*
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: *blasts the "Ode to Joy" section of BEETHOVEN'S NINTH into the mouthpiece at maximum volume*
BEETHOVEN'S NINTH: *continues jubilantly while CRIMINAL is subdued by forty officers*
COMPETENT OLDER MALE LEAD: *is sitting in his chair conducting BEETHOVEN'S NINTH*

Internet, I was powerless. I have something like six seasons and a movie to get through. Wish me luck.

(Also, Tokyo Game Show. I think I'm deaf in one ear now, but DAMN that was amazing.)

ETA: THE PORN WATCHING. HOW DID I FORGET THE PORN WATCHING. SERIOUSLY, SHOW, WHEN I FORGET THE PORN WATCHING YOU ARE TOO AWESOME.

WHEE!

Today's weather was pretty much perfect. I did two loads of laundry and put it all outside on a rack to dry and brought it in and it smelled amazing. In between I fell asleep in a sunbeam and then woke up to eat a slice of the best loaf of white bread ever. Today was amazing. Tomorrow I will pay for it by having to study all day, but whatever. I'm going to go soak in the bath soon, so I don't care. :P

Meme time!

Dear Modern-Day Women's Everyday!Fashion Shoes,

Fuck you too. I have blisters the size of smallish grapes. On my pinky toes. Also, an area of skin the size of a dime has been rubbed from my right Achilles tendon area. Tomorrow, I WILL wear tennis shoes, hot weather and dressy fashion sense be damned.

No love AT ALL,
Me.

(Also, to the Greater Tokyo Metropolitan Area: Plz to be having benches in ur public spaces kthxbai.)

TOKYO!

List of first times that have happened to me today:

Going outside the station at Shibuya (usually I switch trains there).

Being in a very small room with probably $500,000 worth of light jackets.

Seeing a store dedicated entirely to socks.

Using a squat pot.

Eating at Soupya (because I WILL go back there, omgdelicious).


Going to the opera now brb.


ETA: First times continued:

Going to the opera.

Being in an earthquake.

Eating at a kaitenzushi shop.

And a second time: the squat pot again.

Something I meant to comment on last week re: Metalocalypse season finale: that metal/death altar thing that shows up while Krozier's getting his mind blown was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

I think this means I've watched WAAAAY too much of this show.
kanbouchou: (giada glee)
I'm still amazed when customer service fails to eat my soul for daring to utilize it.

So, on the ridiculously small chance that any of them are reading, huge truckloads of gratitude to "Courtney", "Matt", and that guy from the airline four months ago whose name I didn't get but who smoothly averted my impending emotional breakdown re: name on ticket vs. name on passport. Thanks for fixing my credit cards/ticket and, y'know, not eating my soul.
kanbouchou: (bob OMG)
Breaking a (very) long silence to say:

The Metalocalypse season 2 finale was the most fucking amazing thing I have ever seen in my whole life. I can die fulfilled.

Also, to my RL friends who might still read me: going to Japan in a week and a half, back in ten months bai.
kanbouchou: (hewlett dorkitude)
So, I just got around to watching the 16th ending song for One Piece.

...Yes, I cried like a baby.

ETA: Also, ED 18? CUTEST THING EVER.

Dear ElJay

Today I served a plate of vegetable stir fry over confetti rice to a man who, judging by his facial features and the scarf draped around his neck, was either the Fourth Doctor or Tom Baker in character and time-traveled forward from the seventies.

Also, to my list entitled "Body Parts Capable of Experiencing the Sensation Known As 'Minty Fresh' Upon Application of Toothpaste" I added "eyeball".

I sleep now.
kanbouchou: (giada glee)
You have failed me, as I had no clue to the existence of the Man Festival event prior to actually participating in it. On the other hand, finding it on my own was possibly the best part of my entire winter break, so you're forgiven.

(...HOMG, THE GAY. *dances* )
kanbouchou: (bob OMG)
"Well, he's not the unique person we all are."

...Dude, you just negated your own argument. Now GTFO of my room, I have a final in twelve hours and I haven't slept yet.

So last week, my Japan-related education (language and translated classical literature) could be summed up as follows:

PROSTITUTES PROSTITUTES PROSTITUTES.

Seriously, by Thursday I was like, "Wait for it... Waaaaait for it... Checkmark for Thursday!!" I love my major.
