Yes, well...

So I did want to write about what I've been doing lately, I really have.. ; I just never found the time to actually write what I wanted to.. hrmmm.

Well anyway, I actually DO want to update with stuff, so... without further ado! (In as chronological order as I can get it)

apple 2 weeks ago on Tuesday, I went with [livejournal.com profile] mystical_mayhem to see Hanson!

...more on Hanson! )

I seem to like all the groups that still play their debut song 10 years later, don't I? catface

apple Up NEXT, we have Scott Pilgrim VS the World! I saw the movie opening night, and it was really great! I highly enjoyed it, although I hear it deviates from the comic after the first 1/2, but that those who read the comic still highly enjoyed the movie.. good sign in my opinion bird It's good.

apple OBON FESTIVAL! Every year, there is an Obon festival at our local zoo here.. I wasn't able to go last year because well.. I was IN Japan, but I went again this year and we had a mini Arashi fan meet hehehehe I even managed to put my yukata on by myself... and tye the damn obi by myself as well! I'm glad I know that I can do it all by myself now. Good to know thumbsup


I was seriously surprised that I could get the obi tied by myself -- it was only the 2nd time I've done it! And that fan on the back kept popping up when I moved around, but it was for the 夏祭り in Okazaki last year -- I love it I think it's so cute! Btw my shoes totally do not match my yukata! I really don't have anything better yet! ._.;;


Of course I had to bring my Ohno uchiwa as well hehehehe Actually, we had probably 4 or 5 girls walk up to our group and ask us where we got our uchiwas... tons of other Arashi fangirls!! Compared to 3 years ago when we went and one girl working at the place thought [livejournal.com profile] katzichan's Sho uchiwa was Jun... and that's it!! I was so surprised. Seriously, Arashi is taking over the world.

I also managed to scare a bunch of Japanese girl scouts... *sigh*.. )

Anyway, it was quite fun and I'm glad that we got to go.. also, by some sort of crazy miracle bestowed upon her, [livejournal.com profile] lyricalidol found an original copy of the Kaibutsu-kun manga!! How insane is that!? And I'm almost thinking it'd be really fun to translate it haha.

apple I didn't get Tokyo dome tickets. it really really sucks... but I'm not giving up yet. I/We can't afford to buy those $700 tickets from the auctions, but I'm doing things my own way and hoping that I can get us some tickets in my own methods.

Wish me luck bomb

appleA VLOG: (It's super late this week, sryyy I forgot to post it haha)



apple And I think that mostly brings us up to date! I hope you have enjoyed this compact version of the life of egg sparkles

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun @ Kokuritsu 9.30 ♥)

YESSS YOU GUYS YES


I'm in love with it already (although, which song am I not, seriously) Thinking about subbing this clip! yes? no?

I'm so excited for a new single (DOUBLE SIDED PLZZZZ)!! Let's go! *pulls out wallet*

Also, listening closely to the Tokujo Kabachi CM sounds like Arashi too.. have they announced they're gonna do the theme for Saigo no Yakusoku as well?? A 3-sided single? Please? With a dollar bill on top? (You know that will persuade Johnny )

Also, Lotion and I went to see Avatar in 3D today. It was really awesome. The environments and special effects were just crazy.

ALSO -- Look at my pretty new Kokuritsu 8.30 Jun with his b-day present icon! LOOK! *huggles [livejournal.com profile] ghostygloom* AHHH 2010 has started out awesomely you guys s DRAMAS, MOVIES, MUSIC GALORE~

Oh yeah, I need to totally make some Johnny's Countdown gifs for [livejournal.com profile] spazzcrack *rushes to do so*

(P.S. IT'S SHO MONTH and I am totally getting the 2010-2011 Arashi calendar when it's announced!!)

(P.P.S I haven't done a proper *flailfangirl* post in a while -- it feels good to do it again shaking heart)

So my dad called me about 1/2 an hour ago. The first thing he says is, "So how's Arashi?"

I was like "...... what..?" lmao wtf dad rofl ajklha;gd

Also, I found an old Dick Blick gift card while cleaning with Lotion today. I decided to just check how much was left on the card... $100.00. WTF?? I don't remember getting a gift card for Dick Blick and never using it ;;

ummm... anyways...

I also downloaded the new "The Television" scans from [livejournal.com profile] arashi_yuuki. I was looking through it, and they had pictures from old photoshoots, and then I noticed...


I was at Shinokubo Station a lot ;;


I know I keep freaking out about these things, but it's still so hard for me to believe that I was there, you know?? BUT THAT WAS THE STATION THAT LOTION AND I USED FREQUENTLY WHEN WE WENT TO SHINJUKU. ajkhldgdalala?? It looks exactly the same wtf. And in the article it says something about when they were shooting for Pikanchi, and that this shoot was done around "Korea Street" WHICH IS WHERE WE WALKED every time we went to the station and where I got some of my DBSK stuff does anyone have this photoshoot??? 見たいな~

It also motivated me to look at Pikanchi again when they go to Tokyo and there were quite a few other places that I recognize. It was like, "omg, I was THERE! And THERE! WTF! "

...I need to calm down ;;

I also then watched Pikanchi Double. What a fucked up movie, seriously ;;

And now I'm downloading The Sims 3. ; I want to play that game. And guess what kind of family I am going to make *glee* But there's still about 6 hours left to the download rofl.

On that note, I will end with this:



...no wait, I'll end it on Nino's snark/fail:

一ヶ月だけかかったけど、もう日本の生活にほとんど慣れた。私の日本語は全然ペラペラじゃないけど、電車とかコンビニとかレストランにも、もう慣れた。アメリカに戻る時、カルチャーショックを経験するかもしれない。でも、日本へ来てから、本当に親切な人だけに会った。先生方と学生方と日本人、みんな親切だし、よく手伝ってくれるし、それにもし私は質問があったら、いつも親切な説明してくれます。先生方はいつも学生達のために易しいと面白いレッスンを考えてくれる。時々、テストを受けた後で折り紙とか他のクラフツを持ってきてくれる。それに私の日本語はもう少し上手になったと思う。少なくとも、文法が少し上手になった。wで、昔より今長い文を作れる。

先週末はとても忙しかったw金曜日はゲームセンターに行って、ポップン18(ザ・ムービー)とBlazblue(ブレーズブルー)をやった。とても楽しかった^^IIDXもあるけど、本当に上手な人がダブルスをやっていたので私はちょっと恥かしくて、やらないことにした。

土曜日は新しい友達と名古屋に行った。実は学校から友達は私に紹介してくれた。彼女も嵐が大好きだから、すぐに仲良しになった。ジャニーズの店に行って、11枚嵐の写真を買った。グッズはあまりなくて、私は沢山お金を持ってこなかったので、11枚しか買わなかったw。それからカラオケ館に行って、約4時間歌った。嵐とかPERFUMEとかNEWSなどの曲を歌った。帰ってから、寮の友達とバーに行った。寮の友人のご主人は次の日にタイワンに帰るから、ちょっと皆で出かけた。あのバーは凄かった、本当に。本当の日本のバーと思う。バーの人は皆浴衣を着て、畳の部屋で遊んだw。それに凄く丁寧な言葉を使っていた。でも、私たちは多分ちょっとうるさかったと思うwwまあ、、楽しかった。寮の友人と彼女のご主人はあのバーによく行くから、バーの人を知ってると思う

日曜日は買い物をしたけど、この書き込むはもう長く過ぎになって、やめたほうがいいと思う。

英語で書きたくないwwまあ、、このままでいいと思う。またね


Sorry for the neglect :x I don't know why I keep putting off entries and such. I'm just busy studying, and worrying about money.

Well to start off.. we got 5 new people into our dorm this week, so it's definitely become much more lively around the house, which is nice. I had bought a whole bunch of flour, milk, and eggs so that I could make pancakes cuz I was kind of craving them. I didn't really know what to do with the milk, cuz there was so much of it.. so I suggested a pancake party lol.



Pancakkkesssss )


On Thursday I was invited to go to the cafe nearby that has the parfaits, "Cat's Cafe". There was a group of about 10 people going to eat the giant 4,100 yen parfait that that offer there. I agreed to join them, and we walked in the super humidity. When we got there, we sat and immediately ordered the parfait.



Let's see.. it took us 10 minutes to devour it.. )


After we did the parfait, Young and I went to the magazine/music/manga/video game store in the mall. I was planning on getting the newest Potato, and the newest volume of Nodame Cantabile. I went to the magazine section and got the Potato..






The poster :D


I'm wondering if I am over doing it?? rofl


Anyway, I ended up wandering around the music section to see if they got anything in used..


I've given up trying to find the limited edition of this, but they had the regular edition USED. The Arashi section in the used section is always empty. So... I had to ^^;;


I also found this in the used "clearance" section for.. get this.. 260 yen. It's the DVD/CD. I couldn't believe it..


Anyway, they were all out of the most recent Nodame volume. Which makes me sad, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, as it's one of the most popular mangas in Japan.

So then on Friday... I ended up hearing about an arcade with a few fighting games and such that was (sort of) nearby, and wanted to go check it out. There was another group of people going, so I tagged along with them. There's actually 3 arcades (that I know of) around here.. one of them I met them at and it was tiny and totally run down, so we ended up walking to the other side of the city (sort of lol) to the other one that they had been to. It was not huge, but it had a lot of fighting games and some rhythm games. They had Pop'n Music 17 The Movie, which made me happy.



I ended up spending 300 yen trying to figure out the menu, cuz it was really strange. In the end, I figured it out.. )


On Saturday, I went to meet a friend that [livejournal.com profile] aichijet introduced me to. She also likes Arashi, and so we chatted and.. went to the Johnny's shop :x Oh boy.. I know where it is now, so... >_>;;



I restrained myself, I swear. )


After the Johnny's shop, we ended up going to a karaoke place and singing for like 4 hours.. It was about 900 yen for unlimited time and 1 drink, which wasn't bad. I'm sure if we went later, it would have been even worse. But it was so nice to karaoke with someone who knows Arashi--let alone Japanese songs in general.

After I came home, it was one of the dorm mate's husband's last day in Japan, so we went to their favorite restaurant/bar to celebrate. It was really cool.. you get your own little tatami room with a table, and then they had really delicious looking pizza's that I'll have to get eventually.

We learned some really silly Taiwanese games, including one called "Seaweed", so for the sake of things we called it "Nori" since everyone knew how to say that lol. What you do is play rock, paper, scissors until someone wins. Then the person who wins has to pick "high", "medium", "low", or "out to the sides", and say "NORI NORI NORI NORI". If the person who lost does the same move as the person who won, he or she loses. XD If you don't, you go back and forth trying to get the other person to do the same move as you. It's basically to see people make fools of themselves. xD



Tadaaaa. XD It was super fun, and we made the waiter play the game with us as well haha.. he was really funny.

Anyway, on Sunday I went to the Aeon mall with [livejournal.com profile] chop_sockey, Young, and Tsumin. It's Raechel's last week in Japan, so she wanted to go shopping for some omiyage and such. I wanted to get a macha frappe to try.


It was nummy :D


There's also a Mister Donut in the mall, and I kept hearing all these amazing things about it.. they were having a sale for everything for 100 yen, so I decided to go for it.


But I got too much and I could hardly finish it haha. (The donut holes were 100 yen for the whole thing)


After we shopped around with Raechel for a while, I had planned to go to a movie with a few people. So me and 3 other people went to see Gokusen :D It was expensive, so I don't think I'll get to see another movie while I'm here, but seeing a Japanese movie in theaters was on my list of things I wanted to do in Japan. It was a cute, but predictable movie. Kame of course was in it, but for some reason I didn't realize that Miura Haruma was one of the main characters, which made me happy! Oguri Shun, Narimiya Hiroki, and Hayami Mokomichi also made guest appearances :D No Matsujun, but I was expecting that.. still was a little disappointed that he didn't surprise me by being in it for like 3 seconds at least XD;

Anyway, like I said it was cute, but I think a very good choice for someone learning Japanese. Not a whole lot of weird terminology that I needed to know to get the plot of the movie.

I also watched Buzzer Beat on Monday, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be :o so I'll be watching it again next week. Of course Arashi no Shukudai-kun was watched.. Arashi in baby outfits is hilarious. XD

And now this post is going to be finished because it is long enough already haha.

So... please look forward to the next extremely long post xD;;

Um.. Yeah so apparently I was bored. ^_^;

BUT! I got my own studio space finally!! Last semester I was totally bummed because I signed up for studio space, and they gave me one, but apparently "studio space" can also = a locker. >_>; But I guess seniors get actual studio studios :O YAY!! I just need to decorate it ^^ But what with XDD

OHHHHHH I SHOULD TOTALLY PUT UP THOSE PICTURES THAT [livejournal.com profile] kuro_jashin SENT ME!!! XDDDD I'll just use them there for the time being and then once I have to vacate the place I'll move them to my wall ^^

Anyway... today was kind of a lazy Sunday with a little homework mixed in. I finished my Illustration homework. WOO! *cheer*... andddd I met up with my film group and we finished our film. WOOx2! ^^

And then I came home and we watched the "new" Thai film, "Chocolate".. crazy crazy Thai movies wow. It was by the same studio that did Ong Bak, so if you've seen that movie, you know what it's about. But it's with a girl! lol I enjoyed it.

That's about it. Life is moving fast. Plz make it stop :( I had kind of a depressing entry thought out in my head while I was driving home from campus, but maybe I'll save it for another day.

Over and out.

Oh, and P.S.


BUY MY DBSK MERCH!!!! :D

Yay! I got a cheap cork board at Target a few days ago, and TJ and I installed it... today I sent in some of our pics taken from our Disney World trip in 2007 (1 year ago already T__T) and got them printed out at Walgreens. (Lol I like how our faces are perfectly blocked by the flash XD)

Yay! ^^

I DDRed with [livejournal.com profile] nufapopolopugus and then had a date with TJ later tonight. We had dinner and a movie :D Saw "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". What a fucking depressing movie. But I think the moral of the story was supposed to be a happy one.. still... depressing T__T

お久!

2週間前から期末試験中です。大変です~!T__T 終わりたいよ。この学期の後、たった二つ学期残ってます。でも、最近学校ですんげー忙しくなりました。ありえないっす!wwww

私はつくしでーす。この間、「花より男子・ファイナル」と映画を見ることが出来ました。(この場合は、「見させました」と言った方がいいのでしょうか?)面白いと思いました。誰かあの映画を見たことありますか?松潤が好きですけど、松潤より井上真央と小栗旬が好きなんです。^^最高でした~^^でも、一目の「花より男子」が一番好きだと思います。

最近新しいドラマを見てます。「流星の絆」ってもう書きましたけど、「イノセント・ラヴ」と「ブラッディ・マンデイ」も見てます。私は堀北真希の大ファンですので、あのドラマを見ることが決めました。で、三浦春馬のファンに少しずつなります。超カッコいいだと思いますww。イケメンについて書きすぎでしょうww。

では、まてね^^




I got my copy of the Jan issue of Myojo yesterday, and they had a small 2 pages on Miura Haruma, but they had an article on him playing a role in Crows Zero 2! Yay~ Not only is Oguri Shun and Yamada Takayuki in it, but Miura is in it now~! X3 I'm excited.

But they did something weird to his hair T_T
