Peopel here hit giant bells at temples 108 times on New Year’s Eve in order to get rid of 108 evil spirits that exist in every human. I didn’t hit the bell this year and heard only one ring, so I’ve got 107 evil spirits in me to begin the new year..

Among all the vegetables, I think yams are the most “verbal” veggie. When I peel their skin, they quickly turn pink and green as if they were screaming from the pain. It makes me feel guilty..
I like soaking my feet in hot bath when they are cold. Today, I was wondering why they feel ice cold right after I soak them in hot water.. I’d think that the feet would feel super warm since the temperature difference between my feet and water are bigger than normal. Weird…
I saw a news reportor with huge ear lobes today. They were so big that he looked as if he was wearing some pink ear rings. People here believe that a person with big ear lobes earn lots of money.. it must be quite strange to get attention from ladies just because of the ear lobes though. They aren’t exactly the sexiest part of a body.
I got a cold. I need a pizza scraper for my throat.. something is stuck there and I can’t cough it out.
I went to see a movie and spent three hours sitting on a seat that is just like a seat in an airplane. I’m spending ten more hours on a real airplane seat tomorrow.. not very happy.
Last week, I ate tons of blueberries. I had lots of blueberries skins between my teeth and Yumcax was laughing at me. So, I asked him if he had any “floth”. He laughed, so I said, “fine. do you have any fRoth?” He didn’t tease me any more, so I was like “HA! I win.”
But the fact was that I went one step away from the actual word. I wonder if Yumcax was grinning like a clown in his mind when I said froth..
The North Korean defense minister says: “If [the United States], ignorant of their rival, dare provoke a nuclear war, the army and people of the DPRK led by Kim Jong Il, the invincible commander, will rise up to mete out determined and merciless punishment to the U.S. imperialist aggressors with the might of single-hearted unity more powerful than A-bomb.”
Mako says: “We too need an invincible commander.”
If I ever become super famous, I don’t want the Japanese government to put my face on bills. I don’t want people to describe me as somebody who’s related to money. Plus, you can make funny faces with anybody’s faces on bills. Here’s how you do it:
1. You draw a line that connects the center of one eye and the end of lips on the same side as that eye. You do it for both eyes and fold along the lines.
2. Look at the person from either one of the longer sides of the bill.
I had a durian milk shake last night. It was pretty tasty except the aftertaste wasn’t so good.. especially when I burped.
I mentioned a few weeks that I was a bad vegetarian because I would sometimes steal other’s chicken from the fridge because I liked committing the perfect crime.
Well, I flew to Italy a few days ago and I’ve been a REALLY bad vegetarian since then. Since I can’t really read menus, I just point randmonly or let other people choose for me. I’ve eaten beef at almost every meal since. But even in this meat-eating-period of my life, I want to call myself a vegetarian!
Well, I’ve noticed that most of the girls I like most (smart, politically conscious, sensative, thin) are vegetarians or vegans. I’ve also heard that vegetarians “taste” better.
Some are vegetarins for the health, the ethical reasons, or cause they don’t like eating cute things. I am a vegetarian for the sex.
I’m a pretty competitive person.
Here in the US, people say “bless you” when somebody sneezes. For some unknown reason, this doesn’t happen to me too often. It makes me feel bad NOT because I want to be blessed every time I sneeze but rather because I feel like I’m losing in a ‘who gets more blessings’ game. In my biochem class, I got 0 blessing.. I don’t understand why I’m so bad at this game. Maybe I sneeze too manly..
I went to a glassware store. Everthing in that store was very expensive and very fragile. I can’t stay in that kind of store for more than 5 minutes because I get so agitated for some reason that I would start smashing everything around me. In fact, my hands started shaking after I spent 5 mins in that store..
I don’t like diamond commercials. They usually show how guys are supposed to express the intensity of their love by giving big diamond rings and such and I don’t like that. That’s what guys do to ho ho hos, not to lovers.
When I was little, I thought that the batman sign was the inside of somebody’s mouth (the batman’s head being the uvula etc…)
I’m not too attracted to batman, superman, spiderman or X men kinds of men. I just think about how they change in and out of their costumes.. not cool at all.
I had a test on Baroque music. I had NO idea how to answer any of the questions. I’m not going to listen to any music by Haydn ever again! Or at least until I graduate..
I heard that there is a new kind of sake that doesn’t have any alcohol in it.. I’m not sure how it works but the news reporter said that it still tasted like sake. So, I guess this doesn’t really appeal to me… I suppose it’s good for the Japanese toddlers who have to drink sake on New Year’s day.
When I was in high school back in Japan, some people’s stuff were being stolen from their lockers for a while. Of course, those “lockers” didn’t have any locks on them, so what the teachers decided to do was to tape the doors of all the lockers every day after we put stuff in. Yeah, like that’d keep the theif away from our lockers! My school had tons of damn teachers..
Turtle juice is supposed to be a very good medicine in the “oriental” countries. I’m kinda against it though. First, turtles are nice. We talk about life all the time and they listen to me well. Secondly, they’re so slow! It’s not fair for us to catch and kill them AND drink their meaty juice.. pretty cruel.
I forgot to write a blog today (yesterday now)! Makes me sad..
