First I have to talk about an awesome co-worker who helped out a family that would not have had a Christmas if it wasn't for her. About a few weeks ago she and her kids were invited to one of their friends' birthday party. When she got there, the apartment was very neat, but very bare. There was no furniture to sit on or eat at, and the only "gift" the little boy got was the toy that was top of the cake. So, she got home that day and cried and told her kids not to take for granted all the nice things they have... and came to work the next day and e-mailed a lot of us at work.
Of course after reading the story all of us helped her gather money and things for the family:
As for presents at home, my brother somehow bought both my sister and I iPod touches! I got Judy a gps (with lifetime maps ^^;;). We shared crafty gifts earlier this month, too with some of the peeps. I also gave out some blankets, pj's, a play tent, and Dao loves his Bakugan bed sheets, lol. I did not expect the iPod touch and actually wanted Ghong to return it, but he said he wanted to this was his way of saying thanks for helping him get a great job at ABB. So I'm going to keep the iPod and he doesn't have to get me any presents for the rest of my life, lol.
I'm looking forward to this new year and I hope all if you are too. Merry Christmas and joyous new year wishes, everyone!

Today has been cold and boring, so I spent most of it on the computer that my brother says I can use as much as I want to. Okay, will do! I've also been doing check book balancing and so forth. (shrugs) The little one is now 1 years old. I can't believe it. She goes on regular house attacks. When I was little and helped take care of my younger brothers and sisters, it did not feel this way. She is at her dad's mom's house this weekend, so that's why I got to be on the computer and forever. :)
Other things...that Jin guy that broke up KAT-TUN will be in Chicago next Sunday! OMG, I'm getting so excited. Mostly cause I just realized that he really is coming. Wow... he's a Johnny's... I can't help it. So then of course I do a Koichi search and watch a lot of Koichi. Sadly, not a lot of his videos will play because the internet is acting slow. :( How I love him and then I remembered how nyshal said he'd be here in a couple years for his New York musical gig. He works so hard, a lot of these Jpop do, that I feel they'll die young from exhaustion. And then, I'll never get to see him! :( ...so beautiful you are...
This weekend is Yaoi-con! Next year maybe I can go. But I was pissed I didn't plan better because Takanaga Hinako is the guest this year!!! Yes, it's her!!!! Just finally The Tyrant Falls in Love came out. (Going to grab it tomorrow with the borders 40% off coupon ;) ) Well, shukiai, we should plan to go one year. It really should have been this year. (sadness) Too much work and too much chaos at home though.
Meanwhile, there is a trip I have planned for next year and I've started putting away money to save for a trip to Japan. I don't know when or if I can, but it's starting now, so that eventually I'll be going. ;)
It's cold, time to watch more Koichi...borders isn't closed yet either... :D
Last weekend I met a friend from high school on facebook and he's so passionate about music, it really inspired me. I think I'm going to start practicing again! It is October...and he said there's an orchestra or group that is auditioning in January. That could be a possibility. I'm way out of practice...I'm not sure if 3 months could bring me back from the dead? I'll see how next week goes. If I don't practice even once...well...not gonna happen in January then, lol.
Aaaa...soooo obsessed with My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (or Nine-tailed fox). And it just finished in Korea yesterday, which means it was frantically translated by online people and then I just finished watching it with the frantic subtitles. And by frantic subtitles I mean, sometimes there weren't any when you could clearly hear and see people talking for like two sentences and there were no subtitles, lol. But I loved it anyways! XD It's a cute drama, but near the climax, some of the sweet emotional climb was lost. I can't explain it... Wait, I think I can. It's the evil characters were not so evil. Or, there really was a lack of truly evilness. Maybe that's why I love this drama so much. It's pure silly, light-hearted, and lovely sweetness. Yeah, ridiculous and cute. And I'm hooked.
Yay today was payday! And now to pay the bills...boooooo.
Just tired, but freakin' excited that tomorrow is Friday!

However, as soon as I get free time on the computer, it's time for Koichi. *sigh* (Yes, I was onto something and then I got distracted. Ah well. :P)
(Yes, this is the opening to the anime Jyo Oh Sei...which he also did the voice of the main character's.)
I heard from nyshal that he'll be coming to New York next year. I don't know if he really will, but if he is, I might save up and go...to EVERY show. Or something like that. And then, my secret impossible wish would be he'd sign autographs and then I could touch him. Or something like that. Too. And I'm just watching this again because I forgot how listening to him and watching him makes me happy. Besides playing with Jozelyn. :D
and then the happiness was cut off today when work reality hit. people aren't reading their emails i send them, and continue to repeat their requests... and at home, later in the evening, the mail got thrown in my face, so i threw it back at everyone else. it was the last straw. and i snapped. i knew i should have gone out shopping when i had the chance!! why didn't i listen to my brain?!
well, sometimes i wonder if it's just the chemicals in my body changing?? i keep forgetting that i'm 28 now, so i have no idea if things are supposed to feel as dramatic as they feel?? yeah, i'm just crabby pants these days... more reason to move out asap, but i'm having trouble with the monies...so then i'm not ready to move out? *sigh*
i forgot what my perfume smells like, brb after smelling it! :D
