♥ It's almost Valentine's Day and I just wanted to let you, my wonderful flist, know that I ♥ you!

♥ BF is sick again. This time with a head cold. I'm trying really hard not to catch it while nursing him back to health. What is it with guys being the biggest baby when sick?!

♥ Snow. I ain't got none. Sorry, east coasters. You stole all the snow from Vancouver.

♥ Speaking of Vancouver, I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS. MY FAVORITE TIME. Figure Skating, HALF PIPE, Speed Skating. YES.

♥ Homemade baked tortilla chips with guacamole. OM NOM NOM NOM.

♥ Lunar New Year is the same day as Valentine's Day. So this weekend, I spent all day Saturday with BF and his mommy. In Chinatown. Doing what BF & I jokingly call "Chinese Wife Training" aka follow his mom all around Chinatown and learn how to shop like an old Chinese lady.

♥ I'm hopeless addicted to Gardening Mama on the DS. Send help. Or some giant strawberries.

♥ Stay tuned for an announcement on Valentine's Day for FanimeCon's MusicFest! I'm super excited. :D

Still alive here!

I wanted to talk about a few things, wrap up my crazy month of April, and talk about my crazier month of May.

But I'm back from New Jersey safely after missing my flight on Sunday. Got to see [Bad username or site: marksykins title=marksy @] get hitched and nearly shed a tear or two. Got [Bad username or site: illumination title=Dichan @] drunk. :Dv Ate some delicious food and had a blast with [Bad username or site: mousapelli title=mousaPi @], [Bad username or site: longleggedgit title=Linds @], [Bad username or site: illumination title=Dichan @], and [Bad username or site: marksykins title=marksy @]!

and then I came home and dived into a huge pile of Fanime emails.

but I have to run! As [Bad username or site: jackoweskla title=Koyamamamamama @] put it, I'm currently dealing with swine-flu related misfortunes. :(
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Oh hey, look who is online again!? Yup. That's right. ME!!! *happy dance*

Which isn't to say that I haven't exactly been without internet connection since I last posted in the warm lobby of the Hilton Seattle where I was enjoying Sakura-Con with some fantastic friends and making new ones. I've had internet......on my blackberry (aka Shige-Dex). I just haven't had time to make a post!

So what's new/happening/exciting in my life in the past two weeks?

I'm so glad you asked! )

So. How are you doing this fine spring? :D Less hectic than me, I hope. One day soon I will actually comment on your posts! Promise!
jemz: (Holiday - bowl of ornaments)
I'm so tired!!!

But project of d00m is DONE. I spent about 70 hours in 6 days on it and another 20 hours this week. It is done and I can go back and finish everything I was supposed to finish last week before the project was dropped onto my lap.

It feels weird to leave work at 5pm now.

But I am looking forward to sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time.

Also, okonomiyaki with [ profile] nihongofrancais and [ profile] liangzhu in San Francisco was amazing and I loved every minute of our dinner together. Wish it was longer! Next time!

Konbanwa, minna-san!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the United States!! Did you eat well!?

I had lots of food onigiricakericebreadcup So much that I was really full!! sweat

Today is not just about food, ne? It's about giving thanks to what we hold important in our lives. I'm thankful for my family and friends. thumbsup My life is made richer because of them and YOU. I'm thankful for food. Because it's so delicious and I'm very happy when I'm eating with friends and family. These are things that give me strength to work long hours (even tonight! at 1:30AM! DD:) and do the things I need to accomplish.

I'm thankful most of all to being alive. Because I can keep growing, keep experiencing new things and loving hearts who I want to love lovely , to achieve things that I've always been interested in achieving, and being loved in return. heart1

And in being thankful on this day, I remember and grieve for those whose innocent lives were taken away so cruelly in the world. I thank that their presence made someone happy for a period of time. I thank them for their time, enriching others no matter how brief their earthly stay.

Today, I am thankful for everything. Tomorrow, I will keep trying to make a difference in the world. lightbulb Minna, I hope you will try along with me.
jemz: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)
Konbachiwa, minna-san!

Today, I had to work very early! I was really sleepy when I arrived. sleepy But as the day went on, I looked forward to eating delicious breakfast food for lunch! It tastes pretty good. face26

But I went to the supermarket afterwards and bought myself some food for tomorrow and the weekend. I don't want to eat too much breakfast food for lunch that I forget what lunch tastes like! kidding

Tomorrow, I will eat delicious food while working really early. yummyface I hope I don't eat it all at once, ne?

Minna-san, what sort of delicious food are you eating tomorrow?

[ profile] veilsdegto's wedding was at Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood, CA. A gorgeous, gorgeous restaurant up on a hill with a really nice view of the LA and the smog. I got to the restaurant a bit late for the rehearsal but it all worked out in the end. :D Plus, driving a convertable 350Z through LA traffic was sorta fun. I was blasting some JE/w-inds./DBSK music with the top down. ;-)

Anyways, here's some pictures of the wedding! Yay for a huge picspam!

Hollywood, here I come! )

Now off to dinner with Fishbot and family!
jemz: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)
So I've been uploading pictures from Japan and will take it one day at a time, yah? I think I've done some commentary on our first few days before I became tired of writing as we were traveling in high humidity (and really, for a girl who's been living in the dry, dry heat of California, humidity ain't your friend) and we were super spazzy for a lot of the nights.

So without further ado (and I should really try to sleep early and acclimate better), here are pictures of the first day! (sorry, I was too tired lazy to resize the pictures!)

Day 1 - The arrival & Akihabara )

Day 2 - Tsukiji Fish Market, Shin Yokohama, & the Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum )
jemz: (earth in water)

I had a huge and utterly delicious dinner at Curry House this evening that sapped all my energy to think. So much so that I forgot to take a picture of my dinner. Oops. tomorrow?

Off to bed. I'm up early tomorrow. <3

The meme everyone is doing and so I'm doing it too just to be trendy! aka, the Week in the Life Meme. Stolen cheerfully from [ profile] yamapea who was the first one on my flist to do it!


1. You must take between six and eight new photographs per day.
2. Your WITL must be consecutive. no skipping days.
3. You must post your photographs at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken.
4. Each photograph must have the time taken beneath and a title, with no other explanation.

All these are taken by my PokeShigeDex (aka blackberry pearl :D )

....for Okamoto is scary. She loves him so much that she just screamed out "Okamoto and ME!" when asked for her favorite pairing.

Beth and I commenced to laugh ourselves silly.

Edit: The irony of it all is that she doesn't like Okamoto at all. He's her least favorite debuted Johnny's.

*cackles at her some more*

You know what I hate?

Firmly reminding yourself to do certain things while in the shower and when you get to your laptop to do these things, you forget. D:

But at least I am getting things done.

cherry Subbing group project, done.
mailto Fanime emails, mostly done.
NG smsumm, not done. D:
document1 making my Fanime checklist, partially done.

I feel like a slacker. :/
