Because my life is so obviously fail


When I flew over at my dad's during the valentine's weekend (separated parents), an old (and pregnant) friend invited me to a food-tasting event held in one of those fancy hotels in the city. Of course, I, thinking that since it's valentines, automatically assumed that it's going to be filled with cakes and pastries and as you already guessed, I said yes.

And boy, was I surprised.

I have never seen so many pregnant women in my life.

Turns out, it was a food-tasting event for BABY FOOD. (Damn you Witch! Your baby better be named after me!)

And so, after about three hundred denials consisting of "No, i'm not pregnant" and "No, I did not get pregnant out of wedlock." I finally managed to get past the 20 or so mothers who keep on insisting that I touch their bellies because that's how mine will supposedly end up 6 months from now , (Damn you Witch!) and I ended up beside a woman (teenager) so pretty she could have been an angel. (Pregnancy suits her)

"Have you seen a girl with a pink head band?" I asked her, looking around trying to find MY friend.
"No. So how many months along are you?" She smiled, "You look like you're my age."
"Uh...I'm not pregnant. I'm just here to accompany someone." I answered, all but trying to get away because really, this is the pits. But NOOOO. She just had to start a conversation and I can't exactly ignore her because she's pregnant and well...She's pregnant.

"I see, did you taste this?" She handed me her cup of some weird brown stuff which I will never be able to name. Ever.
I looked at the thing... "No. Can't say I have. Nice?"
She made a face. "Disgusting. I'm craving for sushi. I watched this drama called Sushi Oji. It was funny."

Of course, with an opening like that. Did she really expect me to NOT follow through?!

Her: OMGOD!! YES!! You like Jdramas?!
Me: OMGOD!! YES!! You?!
Her: OMGOD!! YES!!

So after about 2 minutes of flailing and KYAA! Domyouji! And KYAAA!!! Nakatsu! And KYAAA *insert random Japanese guys in general*!

Her: My absolute favorite is YUKAN Club! So funny!
Me: .....huh?
Her: You never watched it?! MOGOD! Like watch it! Watch it! I can totally lend you the dvd! Can I have your number? I'm Leslie by the way.
Me: No... No.. I've watched it... Just that... Really? Yukan club?
Her: Well duh! AKANISHI IS HOT!!!!!!!!

Let's just say that after that I just...Didn't have the braincells to argue.

Me: I love Yamapi!!!

And for some reason, she started laughing out loud. I'm serious. She laughed so hard that she kept holding onto her stomach and I was like..

"Are you alright? Please don't give birth here."

Her: Yeah, a friend told me once that a girl burned her house because of Yamapi.
Me: .....Uh ha ha...ha..ha...ha? Eh..Who is this friend? *shifty eyes*
Her: Well, I don't know the girl but I guess my friend does. She's like, obsessed with YamaPi and all.
Inner Me:. Don't be paranoid. It's not you. It's not you. There's a big difference between kitchen and house. It's not you.
Her: So, i never did get your name? Mine's Leslie. I'm married to a Japanese guy, that's how I got into jdramas/jpop.
Me: Nice to meet you. My name's *insert "it's my grandma's name" excuse.*

Etc. Etc. Etc. So now, I made a new friend. (Who doesn't know my ACTUAL name and who i've confirmed, has no LJ account! So HAH! It's not me!)

All was well and good, (even though I had to force down disgusting baby food) but they had cold milo so I managed to finish about 10 cups of that.

In fact, I rather enjoyed it. The only bad thing about the entire event was this mother who started lactating and asked me to help her stuff her boobies with tissue. But i'm sure nobody wants to hear about that so I won't elaborate.

When I got home, my dad eyed my free "For your baby package", (With baby powder, oil, shampoo and all.) and asked me to sit down the table.

"Is there something I should know about?"


In any case, if anyone's looking for me, i'm hiding under a rock.

Dramas! Dramas! Dramas!

You can't bully me Toma!
(Apparently, not many people recognize that my ICON is TomaPi)

What happened? I was gone for a few days and it seems that half of LJ updated? And yet, there's nothing exciting going on. Well. Except for YamaPi missing Toma and Maki. And Tegoshi dating an older woman? I didn't even know that Tegoshi was a guy. Oh well. You live, you learn. 

So I finally caught up with a few dramas and I just want to flail!

1. VOICE- TomEita! GAAAD! Even their namesquish is ADORABLE! I love episode 3 because of them latching onto each other's arms! I'm even starting to like Aki! And to think she used to irritate me! I don't know what's happening but I think the other 2 members of the seminar are suddenly placed in the background. Bet meh, the characters are so sugary cute together they make my teeth hurt. 
2. RESCUE- Am I the only one who thinks that this is a serious version of voice? The main characters even have the same initials. And backgrounds. And BFF's to support them.... It's a little too serious but Yamamoto Yusuuke more than makes up for it! I don't even care if Nakamaru's nose took half the screen, everytime I see HanaKimi dude being a BASTARD, I want to tie him with silk handkerchief on a fireman's pole and abuse him with leather whip or whip cream. (I can't decide, leather whip is kinky but whip cream is tastier...Sigh.. My life is so obviously hard.) 

Nakamaru has a nice body, why didn't I realize it before? All tall and straight. SQUEE! Here Maru-chan! Have a BFF!
(I'm still wondering what his actual role is...)

3. Uta no Oniisan- Ohno is LOVE I always say. He still is. I keep waiting for an update of this drama. I've only watch till episode two and so far, i'm liking it. Though the prince isn't so charming and everytime he sings a children song, my head is filled with images of JOHNNY KITAGAWA and the HEY SAY CHOIR on a big SAUNA bath. I don't know why! I do not know WHY! Of all things my brain dead brain can come up with, it has to be that! I cannot wait until Ohno takes the reins and dethrone that tights-loving prince! I also love the "other" Maru, though his role is more of a comic relief, he's still perfect for his part! 

4. Mei-chan no shitzuji- It took me up till episode 3 to realize that the white haired butler is Yamada Yuu's husband in Seigi no Mikata! How slow am I?!? This drama is just hilarious and nothing more. I suppose it's also meant to be suspenseful and such but as it progresses, i'm just getting tired. And whatever happened to Mameshiba/Otoya? Gone are his princess2 D days when he was all new and fresh! Nowadays, everytime I see him he looks more and more molested! (not that he isn't love anymore, just that,...what happened?) Anyway, Hiro makes a cute butler! and his VOICE! GAAAD! He always sounds sincere! What's up with that VOICE! I want to hear him speak in English again and again and again! 

5. Kami no Shizuka- I may be the only person in this world to actually like this drama. Shocking. Because I never finished Tatta hitotsu no koi and I never got passed episode 2 of 1 pound gospel. And yet, I am eagerly awaiting episode 3 and I am not even a KAME FAN. (but i'll admit, I'd like to have his brows as it is a magnificent work of art.) It may be the wine or it may be the music but for some reason, it appeals to me. I do not find it boring, (for the moment) I enjoy seeing Kame in formal clothes because it makes him look like a decent guy that you can almost forget that he sluts for a living. (Not to mention that his hobbies include cross-dressing and making out with questionable men. I love JE boys!) I also like the "enemy" because he's just....I don't know, evil? Plus, why is Robert-sensei always a connoisseur of some sort? Too bad the ratings are low. 

 See Kame? Even Jin is pissed that your drama ratings are low. (Is this Jin?)

6. Others- Well, I'm going to watch Kiina now. And Love shuffle. And that love/angst drama.
