went to see the second eva movie today. so organic, lol. there was even a xamd scene ohoho. oh, before going into our screening there was this dude totally going seizure-riffic like in the popcorn line. the staff supported his head until it passed, then after the seizing stopped he kinda went ballistic like not in his right mind, screaming and flailing all over the place so more staffers tried to hold him down without hurting him, and like this dude was digging his fingernails into the staffers' wrists and stuff. mad props to them just trying to grit their teeth and bear it. seizure dude was kinda chilling on the floor in a daze with the staffers holding him and trying to comfort him and stuff... then maybe 7 minutes later the paramedics came with a gurney. but when they attached the oxygen monitor thing on his finger and tried to lift him into the gurney seizure dude totally went all nuts again - honestly it was a really sloppy lift. i think the theater staff could have done a better job lol. anyway when he got close to one of the theater people in line, this mid 40s dude with a beer belly, beer belly man put him in an armlock and judo threw him to the ground lol. it was pretty hardcore, but then the paramedics and staff kinda got him in this massive group bear hug and told him to calm down and that he needed to go to the hospital. it was time for our movie, so the last thing we saw before going in was the paramedics escorting seizure dude into the elevators with his arms over their shoulders - like how 2 people would walk an injured soccer player off the field.

but yeah poor guy. he seemed to have come to watch eva alone or something because no civilian was by his side or anything before during and after his episode. when he gets back to his senses hes gonna be pissed off that he bought his ticket without having seeing the film. either that or he'll suddenly wake up in his hospital bed all disoriented and be like, "dude that was the trippiest movie ever!"

practice is getting gross cause of the humidity... ugh and it's not even july yet ;_; people were slipping and sliding all over the place haha. it was grand.

been watching shangri-la for the past 2 days or so

the only reason why i kinda ran into it is because when i was browsing though music on youtube related to may'n, i found the into to this shangri-la (may'n sings it). so i watched the first 1/3 of the first ep and id have to say it's pretty alright. it illustrates an interesting not-so-distant future where the earth is globally warmed. heavy on the poliSci, econ and transvestites lol. they develop the main character all over the place which gets confusing sometimes trying to understand her real personality, but it's tolerable.

anyway, the rainy season is just about here. i got pretty soaked biking to school in the rain this morning. i had on a hat and raincoat and everything too, haha. and the humidity is killer. so dirty-feeling, ugh...

i need 4 silk threads.

change of plans!

prolly not gonna go to world cosplay summit anymore - got too much draining stuff around that weekend, so imma just be chillin.

comiket is still good tho kekeke

gotta figure out cosplay for me and thanh tho hmm, we know we wanna be from soul eater (going with group) but not sure who to be - oh and allens not cosplaying - hes gonna be our photo guy hehe - prolly not wise to cosplay your first time at comiket as we learned the hard way last year @_@
been thinking a lot about home recently, so to get my mind off stuff ive been busying myself with this music video we're making for cultural festival at my spicy chicken school. i call it a music video now rather than a musical before because... theyre basically dancing and lip-syncing to only one song so... there you have it. minimal plot - story revolves around cleaning... yeah. haha. it's all them. they chose the topic, characters, style, etc. im just their multipurpose support being. completion deadline is mid-september. but anyway, im excited cause we got real dancers, oh yeah!


i need like 20 more levels on axe before i can Rampage. i think ill go to the gym early today so i can come back and skill up lol.

omg so just now as i was taking my laundry in, i noticed actual fray on my judo gi OMG!

it's real! lol...

its not hardcore or anything, but it's frayed in a handful of spots where the back of the neck is. kinda looks like the back of your jeans where the heel are...

that's all i gotta say today hahaha

ugh... had really bratty class 6th period. the boys were fine. it was just two groups of like four girls that got to me. now im a pretty patient person... so i just repeated myself over and over again in a normal but loud-ish volume so they could hear me. the boys tuned in after only like 3 repeats. the girls on the other hand took maybe 20 times before they shut up and listened. gosh DARN what the heck is up with that?! not just once either, maybe 3 times in a 25 minute time span i had to just keep on repeating myself till they were quiet enough so i could give instructions. you just wanna... shake em! lol. i swear im gonna get deported lol. my teacher buddy has had trouble with the girls in that class since the beginning of the year, too. first, she would give then the "shh" sign. then she would go over and tell them to be quiet nicely. then she would directly address them and tell them explicitly non-sugar-coated. so teacher buddy was like, "yeah when i tell them to be quiet nowadays they just kinda glare at me all angry and stuff, and then theyll turn around again and finish talking to each other." i was like, 'dude, how do they have any right to be angry when it's them not listening to directions and being total bitches?' then i went into this long-winded rant about how the kids here are so socially f-ed up cause their parents dont know how to raise em right and schools dont train em for the real world worth shit either, lol. i mean, i dont got any kids of my own or anything, but if mommy and daddy gots enough money to get their kid f-ing louis vuitton wallets, then they should have no problem hooking their kids up with some manners or common sense or something, man...

they probably were never beaten as kids, that's probably what the problem is lol.

so yeah, lately ive been pretty hateful towards 'the system' lol. but i feel like 2 years firsthand exp is enough to be able to judge and lay it all down. im just telling things how they honestly are on a global scale. kids their age in west africa are all trying to raise their own kids, washing their rags for laundry in dirty ass puddles and shit... and here they are, fortunate enough to have (had rich enough parents to send them to the best cram schools to prepare them for their high school exams so they could pass into) the second best high school in the region as their alma mater, with all these awesome teachers trying to do them a favor and theyre totally blowing it. they care more about the oh-please-shoot-me-in-the-head-now manzai comedy nonsense going on in jp pop culture now than anything else.

on the other hand, other students' meekness pisses me off to no end. the other day the art club girls wanted to take a picture of me and they were hovering around my desk for like 20 minutes waiting for another eng teacher to come so they could 'translate' LOL. they were whispering things like "oh god, no i cant," "no no you go ask," "no you go ask" "i dont wanna, let's just skip her (broke my heart, lol)" all the while im just sitting there going through student compositions.

so my teacher buddy showed up and was like, "you should go talk with her" and they were like "i dont know what to say" and she was like, "say 'can i take a picture of you?'" and they were like "OHHHH YEAH! THAT'S how you say it!" and im all /palmface at my desk. then there was chatter about when to do it or who to do it and since it was go-home time, i started packing up as to give them some motivation. then they started to get antsy but still no brave souls. so i walked out the door past them saying "bye" and they were all "oh oh oh ! -" and a girl pushed another girl forward to me (who had this deer in headlights look on her face). then i was like, "what?..."


"k guys bye. see you on wednesday."

then finally a girl blurts out "picture!" then a wave of giggles.

then my teacher buddy kinda like /palmface on the sidelines comes up to me and says "so these girls want to take a picture of you" and i was all, "yeah i know lol, these cowards have kinda been chirping away behind me for like the past half hour it seems" and she was like, "oh, so... is it ok?" and i was like, "yeah, sure, whatever"

so i approach the bevy and take to opportunity to make them feel as flustered, awkward, and embarrassed as i can mwahaha. i start grilling them with questions and particulars about their project, its motivations, and other such details. if i was in a better mood, i would have just made a nice pose and been off on my way. but i kinda wanted them to hate me, america, english and all foreign people in general forever for some reason lol. i feel like if they think -I- in some way am gross or scary or intimidating, theyre totally gonna piss their pants when they see anglo people of the male type should they ever dare breach the borders of their own sheltered country and mind. i mean come on. i look asian, im female and im 5'2"! i have good teeth lol, there's nothing ferocious about me at all lol... there are dolls and stuffed animals on my desk for god's sake... i'm clean... i dont smell funny (i can provide testimonials)! i even have a strong command of the japanese language.

so WHY is the English factor so terrifying?

some teachers side with these loser students and say, "well uh, it's because they're afraid of making mistakes that's all..." but come on. what if someone said they're afraid of eating because they dont want to get their mouth dirty? youd wanna slap em, right?


/rant over for now

on the brighter side of this, the entries for the fan art contest for ffxi's 7th anniversary were soooo gooood this year ^-^
i think next year if ffxi is still around (with ffxIV coming up and all) ill go for something colorful and cute hehe

so ive kinda slipped back into the habit of recreational shopping, particularly online shopping. it seems like summer just brings out the shopper in me. part of the joy is in waiting for something to come to me in the mail. then there's the actual opening your packages and stuff haha. other than cheap korean clothing distro-ed from hong kong, and stuff from ae, i also got a new camera. at first i was gonna get one at eiden, but the staff there pisses me off to no end. theyre so freaking sexist, it's just ridiculous. theyre opening line EVERY time i go there is, "hey there miss, these cameras look sooo cute~ dont they? is this your first time seeing a model like this? this one in particular is popular with the women. see? it comes in all sorts of fun colors" now i appreciate their work ethic, and i know it's all part of their training and all, but damn, i just wanna bash their heads in. they even profile me to the T lol. i love pick gadgets! it's just so wrong when they actually do it tho lol. never fail to draw their attention when i cruise around in there. maybe lone young female sends off red sirens in the back to dispatch the sales representatives: "we got a code 7419 here in the digital photography section. send in tanaka-kun, fast." i just want them to leave me alone ;_; i wanna indulge in technology in solitude. i dont want anyone talking to me, trying to get me to buy XYZ. if i have a question i'll ask. im not like your kind, after all.

anyway the camera thing i got is from this CA based company called SVP - silicon valley peripherals. i swear when i first saw the brand name and the price i would have bet everything it was some 3rd party brand from china. anyway i got the T-100 model with a 2g mem card thrown in there too for well under 200 bucks including shipping to japan. if youre interested, just google it... not willing to write down all the specs lol. anyway it's well beyond great for my purposes. im not a photographer and i dont wanna shoot crazy full length features, so it's a-ok for me. i can pretty much compare it with an extremely souped-up camera phone. maybe before i leave japan next year, ill get something... serious.

time for japanese spaghetti. nori here i come.

so i've been thinking of this summers comiket... number 76. oh how it brings back all those hateful emotions from last year's con lol. im just going to regard that weekend as downright unlucky, so while i might regret this later, i'm willing to give comiket another chance. on the brighter side of things, im gonna check out world cosplay summit in early august too hehe. might as well go to the one that's actually in aichi haha.

and my tamagotchi hit rank 1 today. oh baby. he also has over 500m fans yay.

what else did i do...

skilled axe to 117... man, 175 is so far away >_>

did a back-to-back besieged...

i pretty much spent the WHOLE day in ffxi haha. prolly do the same tomorrow too <_<

so im thinking of growing my hair long again. maybe not as long as i had it in 2006, but at least long enough to swoosh around a little and to do stuff with. as much as i like short hair, i think it's time for a change hehe. i usually get it cut every 8 weeks and im due for one next week... once i start looking like anakin skywalker i'll go in for a tiny trim or something haha.

i have nothing exciting to talk about lol
