long time no update but nothing to worry about, just a username change for personal reasons...

.. how to fit another dozen or so hours into the day? Because I could really use them right about now! Between work, keeping up with sparkly pop idols in three different languages, attempts at studying, plot bunnies, and darkspawn killing, I seem to be running a little short on time... But I figured I'm overdue for my next highly infrequent post so here I am orz

However, I have been slightly productive today :) No studying ^^; but have finally caught up on feedback for everything I've bought over the internet recently, as well as rewatching Suju's "Attack on the Pin Up Boys" - yes, it's trashy, but I still love it! And since the last time I watched it I was on a plane on my way to Japan, I was definitely overdue for a rewatch... Also the reason for the ShiWook icon ;)

On the less productive side but more stressful side, 1and1 are being awkward with my webhosting, and some of their admin console has been down yesterday and today so I can't do much about it at the moment - trying not to think about it too much or I'll get stressed again.

Don't think I ever posted about it but I passed my first three Open University modules :) Really should get caught up with the current two though, and make a decision about whether to sign up for just the one I always intended to start in October, or whether I can handle a second one too ^^;

Oh, also never posted: I took an overnight trip to Paris for the SMTown concert this month! Still can't believe I actually got to see TVXQ/SuJu/SHINee/SNSD/f(x), even if I was really annoyed that Mimi and Henry weren't there >:( Some of my highlights:
- the screaming for Amber was amazing
- TVXQ were as epic as you could hope for
- Siwon stripped... new icon to follow ;-)
- loved Lady Heehee and the 'Single Ladies'
- ohmygod Taemin
- 'A Man in Love' & 'Sorry' live = also epic
- actually hearing Yesung/Sungmin/Ryeowook/Kyuhyun/Luna/Onew/Changmin singing live
- Onew the opera singer!
- everything about SHINee!
- Victoria is beautiful live - and pretty much the only one of the girls old enough that I don't feel guilty for saying it!
- Super Junior!
- Goddess Hyoyeon = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ - I was the first one screaming for her in my area too, but everyone caught on soon enough ;-)
- yelling pabo at Jessica/Taeyeon during 'Gee' >:)
There's tons more and I have loads of photos/videos, but it's heading past my bedtime now ;)

I've just had a total Arashi moment on the way home: I'm driving down the road, Happiness playing rather loudly, and as I reach the beginning of the motorway what do I see? A rainbow directly above the sliproad on to the motorway! It must be the magical power of Arashi causing rainbows to appear :D

Unfortunately, once I was on the motorway, I realised that my Arashi moment must have been Aiba-tinged - the traffic was crawling along practically at a standstill! Still, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, especially since it was actually the first time I'd been stuck in traffic on a motorway (disclaimer: I rarely use the motorway so this isn't quite as unusual as it might seem orz)!

So many things to do now, where should I start...

It's true! It's actually true!!

As of episode 4 of Nino's new drama, "Freeter, Ie wo Kau", Watta will be appearing!!! His first drama role, his first work outside of Kisumai - I'm so excited I'm going to be abusing exclamation marks all day!!!!!! And it looks like (Kanjani8's) Maru will also be appearing, which is an added bonus!

I hope that something's announced soon for Nika too - there are apparently some rumours floating around but no one'll even say what the rumours are until it's confirmed and I haven't had time to try and search to find the original (I assume Japanese) posts to see for myself.

I'm glad to get some good news this morning too, considering I acccidentally stayed up til past 3am last night playing the new Dragon Age DLC Witch Hunt, and that I'm still annoyed that, thanks to some errors at the shop I've been ordering Johnny's magazines from for over 3 years, it doesn't look hopeful that I'm going to get the September Wink Up with the Kisumai cover - doubly irritating considering I actually ordered 2 copies :(

Anyway, good news is :D

The fact that not only are Watta & Nika not in the Shounentachi butai, but that Johnny's themselves didn't even feel it necessary to inform the fans at any point until the newspaper and tv reports show up on the opening day really leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. And I'm used to seeing the pair of them (usually along with Miyacchi) get completely screwed over by the Jimusho but this might be the biggest time yet. I wonder whether these so-called "other jobs" will ever actually materialise or whether I should just give up and wait for the inevitable day when one or both of them will just give up and quit T__T

And to think I actually woke up in a good mood today orz

Gosh I'm tired now... Put on a Morning Musume dvd whilst I was messing around and tidying up, and inevitably it ended up as a dance workout :) Which is probably good because there's only four months left until I get to be my friend's bridesmaid, but doesn't change the fact that I'm extremely tired now ^^;

Oh, and another unchangeable fact also from that dvd is that the Yossi/Eri Shabondama performance is completely and totally hot XD

My megaupload premium account ran out over the weekend without warning me...

... I have no money to renew...

... I think I'm just going to go and sit in the corner and cry :(

Admittedly a couple of days late, quite long, and mostly for my own benefit, so under a cut to save people's friends pages.

So 2009 finally finished...Collapse )

Oh, I've just seen the twitter wars that have erupted over After Elton's Gay Man of the Decade! Can't quite believe everyone who's got involved - talk about free publicity! Anyway, after a lot of consideration I've cast my vote too but looking forward to seeing who wins!
