too much poison is never enough.

i thought that my mosquito smoke coil would be enough to protect me while cooking after having taken a shower and so washing off my morning layer of mosquito repellent off my body... but it wasnt lol.

i swear it's a year-round battle.

i got 3 on my legs yesterday. the one behind my left thigh has swollen up pretty bad. it looks like someone implanted a tennis ball under my skin... maybe that's exaggerating a little... so let's say golf ball instead. but the area of swollen skin is way more than the diameter of a tennis ball. im glad there arent any trips to the beach anytime soon...

i got rank 7 today! the feeling of progress i got was phenomenal haha. maybe more than progress, i felt non-lazy i guess?

macross F cosplay is at a standstill until those wigs come in and until i find those ties.

on the lighter side of things, i made some somen okonomiyaki with pork taste just now for dinner - yay.

wow - why have solid colored neckties become the rarest thing ever? ive been scouring all the malls, 100yen stores, department stores, designer stores, etc in my town and solid color ties (besides black and white) are nowhere to be seen.

so i went to hamamatsu today to take a look over there. after running around on ground level stores and 'commoner' high rise shopping malls, i decided to try my luck at the high brand name building just for the heck of it. i saw a tie that i needed in like... Burberry lol... and Hugo Boss...

if i cant find these ties come first week of august im either going to have to go with original idea of hand dyeing white ties (but im scared the color is gonna bleed off onto the shirts ;_;) or making ghetto ties from scratch (dont wanna do this cause... i want the ties to look good and authentic, damnit haha - cant have the wind blowing the ties and everyone see the ghetto behind part...).

anyway on my afternoon scouring malls, i wandered into toys R us and saw this totally awesome dollhouse. it was a Sylvanian doll house, which is european in origin? but is super popular here i guess cause you got the whole Redwall-esque thing going on with personified animals and such. anyway theyre the perfect size for my pinky street girls! and i really really wanted at least the smaller house ;_; it would have looked so cool ;_; my desk would be the most extreme one in the teacher's room kekeke. arg - i couldnt believe how perfect it would have been... and hey, the smallest one was only like 4000yen or so for something the size of... i dunno 2 japanese rice cookers stacked onto one another? totally buying it when i get back to the states! i hope they sell em at the toys R us back at home too... and speaking about pinkies, i saw sanrio ones at the animate in hamamatsu. kuromi and my melody cosplay girls =D but i didnt get them >_>

as a matter of fact i was going to go home empty-handed but felt like since i had made the trip to hamamatsu i should at least buy something, so i did! there was a sale sale sale at the top of high name brand building so i got some super discount clothing yay.

im going to go to nagoya tomorrow after school to try to find those ties @_@ and plus it'll give me another excuse to window shop haha.

chicken nugget udon tonight lol

mr computer totally restarted on me as i was preparing food. good thing i hadnt written a lot yet haha.

anyway im going to put five billion things in a nutshell like i always do. allen came to visit these past few days. we went to mini gasshuku at tsukuba together which was pretty intense but full of earth quaking fun - literally haha. non-gasshuku days were spent at school! the kiddies seemed to appreciate talking to another native speaker of english, but i cant help but think theyve been kinda ripped off i guess because allen is, well, asian. haha.

mostly i cooked random stuff for lunch and dinner during the time we werent at tsukuba and for his last night we ate at the best ramen place ive been to this year - houjun: this cozy, little up-in-the-residential-zone restaurant where the manager kept on telling us how cool and international we were lol. i was going off a recomendation from one of my teacher buddies hehe. but seriously, the food was great.

my 1-8 kids kicked so much ass today playing word association game! we even did a 'back in the states' pace and they were tearing it up! they looked oh so happy to not be in their textbooks. smoothest part of the lesson was when this one boy got the word "cute." for his word, he looked back at the girl who said "cute" to him and said, "you" all smoothlike. the rest of the class was like /squeal and then he was like /smoothaura "well, you ARE cute yknow." then the class was like /squeal x 10

magical. just magical =D

this black and green cache dress i got like 4 or so years ago at Tahoe with mom is the dress im going to wear to the 2008 sayonara party tomorrow. im looking on youtube for hair ideas at the moment... and i went out and bought some matching earrings and a jeweled hairpin for kicks too haha. i think i'll go practice this promish updo now.

oh i also got this ridiculous black leathery ring bracelet grunge skull timepiece thing, and im totally gonna wear it to comiket and TGS lol.

i managed to hit 5th rank and 4th rank on mog bonanza! 4th rank gets me 100,000 gil or an item kinda equivalent. this Matron's knife thing seems like itd be better as an offhand for me actually...

macross frontier! ohhhhh baby. it's so good, and the music is incredible too. but i dont think anything is gonna take me higher than Avatar for a while though haha.

me thanh and steve are hella gonna go as the 3 main guys for comiket kekeke
