Goodbye Vox, hello (again) LJ

Maybe those of you on livejournal haven't heard, but Vox is closing down at the end of this month. T__T It was a great place to blog about Arashi, and it had become my sanctuary for the past 3 1/2 years. (since January 14, 2007) That's why  I haven't been around here much. BUT now that vox is closing, a few of us are moving (back) to lj so we don't lose track of each other.

What I'm trying to say is: I know a lot of my friends on lj are not Arashi fans, and I hope that you can tolerate my posts about them here. I apologize in advance for any annoyance I may cause. ^^;;;;

Hello ex-vox members, please add me!
I've created a new filter just for you guys. XDD I hope we can stay as close-knit as we were before.



yeah, HI!!

I haven't posted in a long time, but I've still been around. ^_^ I had finals this week, and today was my last day. Now I'm free! Until the summer class starts, that is. XD

2 important events have passed that I wanted to acknowledge: my daughter turned 9! and also my 4th Arashi anniversary. yay!

I have been following all of the Arashi news, but not the downloads. Can you imagine how much I still have to download? Just the videos. I stopped downloading scans a year ago b/c I didn't have enough time. Orz

Just stopped by to say that I still love Arashi as much as before, nothing has changed. Except maybe that Aiba-chan is slowly creeping up towards ichiban? Isn't he so kakkoii lately? *twirls* wheeee!

That's all for today, time to go download!

The unpredictable world of short track

Apolo Anton Ohno

Otsukaresama deshita!! You've worked so hard.

It was painful to watch the disqualification. but...

8 Olympic medals, what an accomplishment!

Thank you for bringing so much excitement to short track since 2002.

I feel honored to have followed you from your first Olympic to your last.

I'm sad to hear that you're retiring now, but you'll always be one of the greats.

I will follow you in your future projects. <3

omg Apolo!! 8D

Apolo Anton Ohno won silver in the 1500m!! omg I almost had a heart attack when it was 1, 2, 3 Koreans and Apolo was 4th. *dies* Short track speedskating is so unpredictable! and that JR Celski kid has such an adorable face. ^o^


I reserved a copy!

I finally succeeded into pulling my best friend into the fandom. go me! v(^_^)v

she is officially an ohno fan!

her birthday was on monday, and i gave her my ohno DAL uchiwa, which she loves.

Not only does she like Arashi, she's also eyeing Ikuta Toma, Okada Junichi, and Tamaki Hiroshi. lol!!!!!

get her in, and she starts off running yo!

We were taking about 2 weeks ago about men that were in An An. (she saw the Okada pics and almost died)

I showed her Jun's. She said "I think Sho will do one."

Me: no way! he's a newscaster, and his father is in politics, blah blah image blah blah.

a week later, I get news that he was gonna be in An An. XDDDDD Is she psychic or what?

We went to Mitsuwa and ordered 2 copies, one for each of us. XD

Now she says, "I can see Ohno doing this too."

Me: O_o NO WAY!!!!!!!!!

Her: Aiba too, I think he can pull it off.

Me: NOoooooooo not my Aiba-chan!! Not my sweet, fluffy, huggable, squeezable boy. *clings to his innocence*

Her: lol it could happen! but I can't see Nino doing it at all. XDD (sorry Nino fans!!)

mah mah, I say these things now, but if when they finally do one, I will be running to Mitsuwa to grab a copy. XD


Hikki's coming to Chicago!

Yep, Utada Hikaru is holding a concert at the House of Blues in Chicago.

Tues, Feb 2, 2010. Tickets $23 presale, $26 at the door.


I don't think I'm going...I only know a few of her songs. Plus, it's on a Tuesday.

Maybe if it was on the weekend...

Any Chicago-ans going?


Once a year...what?

It's been a year since I updated this journal. *fail*
Just because I haven't written anything here doesn't mean I don't read my flist. I DO read them, I swear! :0)
I'm making the annual birthday post today. hehe
Yep, it's my birthday today!! wheeeeeee!
Didn't really do much, but had fun replying to emails and messages on vox and facebook. XD
They made my day. <3
I always say I'll update here more, but we all know that's never going to happen. lol
I hope all of you are happy and healthy in this great holiday season. *hugs*
Take care!

Day 8!

YAY! I made it to the end. Posting 8 days in a row is a pain yo! lol. But, it was really fun to do this meme, and I felt happy every night before going to bed thinking about the good things that happened to me. ^__^

un~~ i'm so lazy today. lol. haven't been getting much sleep since my exam is in 2 days. gambarimasu! o(^_^)o

The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same.

- Great news from Thailand! Finally! Thailand has a new Prime Minister. I'm all for him because he's from the opposing side of Thaksin. I now feel more optimistic about the future of Thailand. I just hope nothing goes wrong. ^^;

- My mom called to check to make sure I'm studying wish me luck on my exam. XD

- Watched Heyx3 today. omg Sho! The message demonstration was pure crack! XD I'd read about it, but never knew about the...flipping part. XDDD Performances were great, as always. <3

- It's raining again today. I love hearing it fall against my window.

- I ate Lad Na for dinner today. It was soooo good! ^_^

- Took the last Himitsu clip (with the t-shirts) to show my co-workers and they liked it too. They kept saying 'poor guy' to Ohno, especially near the end. ^^

Will check my friends' posts tomorrow na. I need to get some sleep now. zzzzzzzz


Day 7

The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same.

  • it's sunday. i don't work on sundays, so i got a nice break. ^^
  • downloaded vs arashi, but haven't watched it yet. the hideous shirts scare me. lol
  • kikinini translated an article here: onlyjun.vox.com/library/post/wink-up-012008.html that makes me melt at how much arashi loves each other. also, i'm glad that they mentioned what an expensive habit they've become to us. XD at least they realize it! lol but i'm not complaining. hehehe 
  • i'm re-teaching lily to say her thai prayers. she learned it over the summer from the thai temple in chicago, but she's forgotten it. so now we will say our prayers every night before we go to bed. ^_^
to the ones reading this: i love you girls a lot, you know that? <3 thanks always for your support!


Day 6

hi girls! this will be a short post from me today because i need to go study for my final next week. XD
The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same.

  • I got to sleep in today. ^_^
  • Jun's new CM. *drools*
  • I had a Jun dream last night! OMG it was HOT! XDD I can't post about it because not all of my neighborhood is over 18 (if you know what I mean). >///////< Let's just leave it at that.
  • We were busy at the restaurant today, meaning more money to help pay the bills. ^^ We've been slow lately because of the economy, so today was like a breath of fresh air.
  • I should have put this with yesterday's but I forgot. Last night was the closest that the moon was going to be to earth for the entire year. Lily and I went outside to look it at, and it was very bright. I almost felt like I could reach out and touch it. ^____^
