"Wheelchair Experience" [Feb. 8th, 2010|09:13 pm]
sera
[Current Location |Under my kotatsu]
[Current Mood |confusedconfused]

A few days ago the first years in my middle school in Nishikata, Japan (they are 11-12ish) had a "wheelchair experience." My school hired a company to come with a whole slue (is that how you spell that?) of manual chairs and give an assembly.

The basic rundown was:

1) Movie about how to correctly push a (manual) chair in a way that is comfortable for the person who uses it. Ex "Use your toe on the caster to gently life the front wheels of the chair. When safetly across the drainage grate, delicately allow the wheels to again touch the ground."

2) Next, the "experience" part. Everyone took turns sitting in the chairs and being pushed around so that the pusher could practice pushing correctly.

I don't know how I feel about the whole thing. It all seemed very..."mimic the disability and you'll understand it" or something. The video didn't even show the people's faces. Just the chair and the appropriate places to grasp, ect...

I mean, Japanese culture is all about "fitting in," and everyone "co-existing peacefully," and it's not really completely my culture, so I don't want to be the judgey-whitey, but it kinda made me uncomfortable. How about adding a part to the movie about asking the person who uses the chair if/how they would like to be pushed?

The accessibility of public places in Japan is really...interesting. For example, all stations are "accessible," but accessible means having this really horrible lift which blocks the whole passage way (so example all 20,000 people who are trying to catch their train at rush hour in Shinjuku station can stop and stare at you, while they fidget angrily about being late and possibly getting fired). Worse yet, if there is no lift, "accessible" means that the 70 year old train conductor and three of his buddies come out and CARRY you and your chair up the stairs. (Obviously this only works for manual chairs).

I dunno, I mean you gotta do what you gotta do. If you gotta take the train, its good that there are lifts in most places. It all just feels like...the emphasis is put on making sure you can function smoothly in society, (read: go to work, ect...) but not on how you feel about it. Like, "aren't you lucky that you have a nice lift so you can take the train?" and, "aren't you happy that we educate in schools so that 11 year-olds know how to push you smoothly?"

The grade two years ago had a "wheelchair basketball experience." I wasn't there so I don't really know, but that sounds a bit better to me. At least the focus was on people using chairs and DOING shiz, instead of having shiz DONE TO them.

On a side note, in Japanese, you can say "I am a wheelchair" which is grammatically correct, and is the most common way of saying you use a chair.

Ok, I’ve been meaning to update for a few weeks now, but I’ve been working and shit. Wah, WAH? Yeah, I know, Sera working, unbelieveable. But, as Bunny has said, she “wants to know what’s going on in my life.” And I should probably post about what’s happened this summer before the summer’s actually over, which it will be in…8 days! ^.^ (This is a VERY long post, be prepared).

First order of business: I’m now a certified and registered bartender! And in celebration, me and Mrs. Dobies got all boozed up. We made…margaritas (yum), long island iced tea (blah), manhattans (puke), and cosmos (orgasm). ←Just like Emmett drinks in QAF! W00t! But...I didn't get drunk. I didn't feel anyting at all actually. I think there's something wrong with me.

The whole summer hasn’t been quite as fun as all that though. There’s been lots of church. Ya’ll know how much I LOVE my time with Jesus. In fact, it’s been SO wonderful, the only way I’ve been getting through is by thinking of boys having sex during the whole sermon. …And getting a hard on. ^.~ But then I get embarrassed, so I have to make sure no one in the church can read minds by thinking really hard, “if you can hear me thinking now…cough. Ok…now…nnnnnow.” I have no idea what I would do if someone ever acutally coughed.

In other news, I sprayed myself in the face with a hose today at Burger King. And this kid, Andre who I love, ‘cause he’s one of those silly straight boys who never takes anything seriously, does lots of drugs, and calls me “big pimpin,’” which is the most ridiculous nickname for me ever, saw it and laughed. I like it. Have I mentioned how much I love boys? Good times workin’ for the man. In other Burger King news, I’m drafting a letter to Carrols Corp. (the peeps who own BK) because we just did a toy promotion where we had both Carebears and Transformers and we’re required to ask “girl or boy?” How archaic is that? I remember being a kid and riding in the passenger seat while my mom had to say “she’s a girl but can we have a boy toy please?” Who is Burger King to tell me that I should play with those stupid plastic Barbie’s when there were so many awesome Ninja Turtles and Hot Wheels to play with? Who, if you’ve ever met me, could possibly think that I’d WANT the Barbie just ‘cause I don’t have a penis. Assholes. Ok, I’m done now.

I’ve been obsessed with this song that Ben sent me awhile ago (as some of you know), “I Like Birds,” by the Eels. I just realized that they probably mean girls, and not…flappy-in the-sky-with-wings-birds. Sad.

’Round here we call ‘em birds, not bitches. -The Streets = Love.

Rick sent this article about asexuality to me and I found it completely fasinating. Read it when you have a second. http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn6533

There has been much Rick-age this summer, which I love. Rick-age and Gibb-age. Which gives me gamer envy, but I’m working hard to become more l337, so that they can be proud. ^.^ I’m probably the only person in the history of the world who wishes I was nerdier. Heh. In almost l337 news, I’ve finally got my Super Nintendo hooked up again! Thanks to Em lending me her “key to everything.” Thanks! So yeah, at the moment, Donkey Kong Country is owning my life. Old school! Donkey and Ditty Kong are sooo gay. They live together in a treehouse filled with bannanas…bananas, (ha!) phallic much? And they’re such the stereotypical seme-uke couple. And Diddy’s such the kick-ass little dude. Uh-oh, does Sera sense a crush coming on? ^.^

Speaking of seme-uke couples (these are terms in Japanese culture for the dominant, seme, and passive, uke, roles in same sex relationships. It has other…implications as well. Talk to me about if you wanna know anything more extensive about it), there has been, WAY too much yaoi in my life lately. Several hours of it every night since I’ve been home in fact. So yeah…too much testosterone. I need gay girls in my life again.

Other hanging out has included Bao-ing (sucking balls) with Greco and Demmy, (yum for red bean and lotus paste Bao) late night Wegman’s-ing with Demmy, and awesome hotness shopping with Greco. Bought too many hott Express jeans that make me look like the sex. You know, every time I look in the mirror lately, I’m hotter than the last time I looked. That really isn’t natural is it? I mean, good looking people generally get used to being attractive, ne? I should’nt be…INCREASINGLY sexy, should I? “The curious mystery of Sera, the increasingly attractive girl.” Ok, again, I’m done now.
Oh yeah, Greco looked good in his pants too.

And…the Erie County Fair! With Gwen and Emily! I love the fair. It means amazing fair food, Italian sausage, steak and cheese subs, beef on weck (only in Buffalo), fried dough, curly fries, and this year’s brilliant discovery: roasted corn on the cob. Yum. ^.^ I love to sit with my food pick of the day, and watch people. So many interesting people at the fair, and it’s just so relaxing sitting in the shade, while everyone else bustles around you. So it was all in all a good day, even if I didn’t find the knife man. >.<

And there were birthdays! Both mine and Emily’s! Both were awesome. One was filled with awesome Olive Garden Italian, and the other with Sera-Emily made Pad-Thai. Yum. And Bright Eyes. Yummier. Yay! ::Runs around:: ^.^

In other food news, I may have told some of you about me and Greco’s fateful trip to the “Koreana,” the Korean restaurant next to Best Asian Market, where we walked in, and the basically told us they couldn’t serve us because we were too white. Ok, well they didn’t say THAT, but that was the jist. And with my asian-envy, it was almost too much to handle. It almost broke me, it did. >.< BUT! I forced Ezzi and Diana Kim to take me there so that I could pretend to be asian. It was awkward, but awesomely fun, even thought I couldn’t read any of the manga ‘cause it was translated into Korean, and I spent most of the time hiding under my hat so the server lady couldn’t see how white my face is. >.< Fun!! ^.^

This quiz hated me. THANKS Patrick.
my answersCollapse )

There has been some other interesting occurances this summer…Mike moved out. Well my parents kinda of threw him out, but it was almost mutual. We lost our kitchen privilages so that none of us was allowed to eat in the house for a week. (Talk about dysfunctional). And I picked up a second job working for All Season Rental, the company that Mike works for, and it’s not that bad. On the good days I’m there alone (I iron all day) and I get to listen to my music for five or six hours. On the bad days I get to listen to annoying-voice girl try to engage me in conversation while I daydream about slapping her.
Annoying-voice girl: “So...”
Me: “Slap.”
Annoying-voice girl: “Ouch.”
Me: “What? Oh yeah…Slap!”

There’s more, but I’m too tired at the moment. I’d love to say that I’ll update more later, but it would be a lie. So this will have to suffice.

So, yeah. I’ll be back on the 23rd of September in the mid-afternoon probably. So…I suggest a PMS reunion night. Any objections? Is Patrick too busy having a fucking LIFE again? Bastard. ^.~

The other day I mixed maple surup...surp...syrup, yes, that is it, with oil and poured it over freshly popped popcorn because I was craving something sweet, and it was good. Like kettle corn without the butter. I have decided to call it maple corn.

I heard it's your birthday...well, it's my birthday too...::Dances::
Speaking of which, it rocked.
Got up at 12...took a shower, always good, then the grandparents came.
Ahh...my grandparents. When they come over, we talk about this and that, polite talk, which I hate, because it requires so much of me, but nothing is accomplished. Anyway, after a little while of that, my grandfather drifts into stories, which is what I love. Stories about Scotland and Canada and going back to see the house where he was born, and visiting his grandfather before he died. The good stories, about Edinburgh and the highlands and growing up on the farm with sheep. Sheep are so annoying and stupid. And hairy. I am morally opposed to hairy things.
Anyway, it always makes me think about going there, and how wonderful it felt being there, how right.
I LOVE Japan, and will probably spend many years there, but I have to live in Scotland too. Even if just for a short while. Homes are good. I have so many of them.
So it was good. We drank tea, I asked him to do his accent, he did and called me a bonnie lass, which I'm a sucker for, and then they left. And as they pulled out of the driveway, I thought of all the stories that I've never heard that are locked away in my Grandfather's head. And when he dies, they will all die with him. Sad.
Gwen and me talked the other night on our walk, about families that aren't close which each other. To me it seems natural and the way things should be, but at times like this I wonder.

What does Gloria Estefan have to do with copper pipes? Well she's the copper pipes of the music industry. Functional, but still beautiful to look at. - Ellen

Then...RICK! He called and we went to Blockbuster, then Wok 2...8 for the lunch special, which I'd never done before and I enjoyed. And Rick talked to the people in Chinese and it was fucking HOTT. Rocked so many hard asses, like my car (WHICH IS TOTALLY NOT OLD, WRINKLY AND FLABBY!) I totally wish I could speak Mandarin so that I could talk to him, but I'm not AZN enough. (<-This is for all you's who hate it when asian is spelled with a "z"). And Cantonese, cause it's just fucking beautiful.
So that was good.

Then I talked to Ashley, also of the good kind.

The urge to herbal and the urge to top are NOT mutually exclusive - Funny girl on Livejournal

Then Gwemanda and Emily and Wegman's and Olive Garden and Danny and Mrs. Dobies and bubble chachki's and Luna bars with candles in them and soy ice cream sandwiches. Oh, and I put on deodorant! And then the fun started.

Danny is just a whirl-wind of sum'in.' A little sum'in' sum'in.' He can retell an hour's worth of Ellen jokes, and make them even funnier the second time around. And then we danced to The Jackson Five and Micheal Jackson. Well, I danced for two seconds and then got tired and watched while everyone danced. It was good. I have decided to start listening to Micheal Jackson. I want "Man in the Mirror" and "Black or White." And that Free Willy song. Gwen really fits in which the Dobies scene. Most people throw off the vibe, but it just rolls when she's there. Which is cool.
Wow, this was the best part of the night, and I have the least to say about it. Interesting.

Heh, I'm totally crashing from my caffeine high. I just fell asleep and drooled on my hand.
Ok, well, I made up the drooling part. And the falling asleep part.
But I ALMOST fell asleep, and if I HAD fallen asleep, I TOTALLY would have drooled on my hand.
Just for the look of the thing.

Crazy Lesbian in Search of Cheese (Headline in a newspaper) - It's a Ellen joke, but honestly, tell me it doesn't remind you of Bunny.

I just finished an new shounen-ai manga called "Ihoujin Etrange," by Kodaka Kazuma. It was so good, which surprised me. Yes, SURprised, not SUprised. At first I didn't like it because the art isn't very refined and it started off differently than it ended, but it was wonderful. The ending was just...perfect and happy in that heartwrenching sort of way, and the character's are just so...wonderful. Wonderful is a good word, huh? Bursting with goodness. Ricockulously so. Anyway, I highly recommend it. If you're interested, comment or drop me a line and I'll send it to you. ^.^

Over the last few months I've come to respect translators/scanlators with a new intensity. They are so wonderful in dedicating their extra time to this so all of us can enjoy things that we would never be able to otherwise. It's really quite heroic. When my Japanese becomes good enough, I'm determined to return the debt that I owe by lending my own hand in scanlations which have meant so much to me in the past.

Speaking of, I'm reading Rayearth in Japanese, and I actually kind of know what's going on. It's even better when I use my dictionary, even though it's slow going. Thank squirrels for furigana. Oh, and I'm calling my lil' bro Atsushi now. I don't know why, but it suits him.

Insert comical quote here...

I want mochi. The kind that Tedo-kun bought me the first time I ever tasted it. It was died green with grass, and that's what I want now. And Tedo's company. I've been home more than a week and haven't seen him yet. And I start work soon. Damn. >.<

On the upside though, I DID get to see Rai-rai-kun, the prince of honor and all things white. He totally didn't recognize me with my short hair and ghetto, white, trucker hat, worn SIDEWAYS. That was fun, except that he kept asking me to make decisions. For all you people who don't know, I DON'T CARE. I don't care where we go, or what we do, or eat, or sing or read or watch. Whatever you want is fine.
REALLY.
NOT even shitting you.
Just don't make me decide.

I have to pee, be right back.
K, back.

Oh, the Riv (heavy doors) is worth 6 or 7 thousand, maybe a little less, depending. Just in case the interested parties are reading this.

Ok, I think I'm DUCKS! going to go to bed now, like I said, I'm crashing.
This was kind of a boring post, but oh well. I'm tired and felt the urge to update.
Which is not unlike the urge to herbal.

So oyasumi! And be safe! ^.^

Sera is sort of making an update... [May. 2nd, 2005|09:17 pm]

[Current Mood |tiredtired]
[Current Music |Long Road - w-inds]

This is an "inbetween update" in which I apease my friends who want me to update without putting in the long effort of a full update. So yes. And that.

Big news: The 4th w-inds album is coming out on June 1st 2005! That's really really soon!
So Yay! The fun new singles and actually, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think peices again, which was my first w-inds song ever, and is still one of my favorites.
Oo! And I made Ashley (Bunny) watch w-inds PVs with me, and she thought they were super cute.
Ok, I added the super, but cute. I think she called Keita a "teen hearthrob." So yay! ^.^

Greco, were you the one who sent me Orange Range or The Brilliant Green?
Please, I want more? ^.^

Another thing I want:

Medium, light blue please? 6.~

Pike Place Market is perhaps the most incredibly alive place that I have ever been to. People, shops, food, products, noise, smells. Just life. EVERYWHERE. I felt like I was in Hong Kong, having to press past people on everyside just to walk a foot, or see what pretty flowers or baked goods someone was selling. I likey. I bought a vegan cookie and a red bean cake. Both excellent. I must return. Soon.

I want to work at Shiga Imports. Next time I go in I think Imma ask one of the guys (hopefully the hott one for Patrick) how he got to work there. Maybe one of them is a senior and graduating and moving away or something. Just in time for me to start next year. I just FEEL asian when I'm there. And they have bamboo steamers. Prime for making an-man. Yum.

My favorite thing ever: rejection hotline. Well not EVER, but almost.
Seattle number: (206) 376-9798. Try it.

Soon I am going to make a very extensive anime post, outlining the history of my anime growth, the evolution of my anime loves and idols, things I have learned from anime, how it has changed my life and where I think that I would be without it.
I'm excited.
I KNOW that you are too.

I am leaving for Buff the lo at 10:55 PM on June 11th, 2005. I will arrive home at approximately 8:30 AM, June 12th. After which I will probably take a nap, shower, and then, hopefully, be ready for action. Fur Action!

The Boston Post recently featured an article on yaoi. It was actually pretty good, except for the fact that they pronounced yaoi incorrectly and didn't go as deeply as they could have. Not that news articles are ever really in depth, but yeah. So I want to write a yaoi focused article for "Censor This" (Seattle Gay New's Youth Page). I wish I'd thought of it before Sakuracon, there were TONS of yaoi and yuri fans there. But now I have to go track some down. Oh well, whatever.
Oh! Did I ever post about Sakuracon? OMG, it fuckin' ROCKED. I don't really want to post extensively, but yeah, many hard asses in a good way. The vendors were probably my favorite, because of course, being me, I spent the whole day lost, and never really saw any of the events or anything. But it was GREAT. I bought a new manga, Only the Ring Finger Knows, which was sweet and quite good, and also a Fruits Basket bookback, which I ADORE! And cute girl from my Japanese Civilizations class was there, wearing super cute kitty ears, but I don't think she recognized me with the short hair. Oh! and the cosplay was AMAZING! The best I've EVER seen. In person or in photos. And I am doing Kyo next year. I will die my hair bright orange. It's decided. So yeah, super excited. If I'm not in Japan already, but I don't think I will be, so hopefully I'll be good.

I like my hair. It's soft and shiny and fun to messy up. For all of you who don't know, I cut it. I'll find a camera and post pics later, if I can figure out how the frik' to upload stuff.

My midterms are almost finished. Just my two-part Japanese oral to go. My women's studies exam went ok, but I barely finished on time, so my second essay is pretty weak, but whatever, I got the basic information down. Women's studies...just not really my thing, not gonna lie. I mean, it's interesting, but it just can't compare to say...Japanese Linguistic History. So yeah, no more Women's Studies for me. I just finished my Japanese Politics and Government midterm, and it went pretty well. I think he just wanted us to spit out facts that he had taught us, so that is what I tried to do. But we'll see when I get it back.

Speaking of grades, I think Imma sign off and go study for my kanji quiz tomorrow. 春、聞く、着る、帰る、書く, ect...
Woah, weird. Typing in Japanese changed my English font. Oh wait, it's back to normal, nevermind. Interesting.

Ok, after that incredibly Japanese/Anime/J-pop/Asian General post, I bid you all a good night and pleasant sleep.

Be Safe! ^.^

Ok. So I can't get online from my home computer. It started two nights ago and I thought it would go away but it hasn't.
If something happened to my BEAUTIFUL mac, I'm going to cry. And then hit something. Probably Travis.
So...anyway, I'm in the library now (Odee) overstepping the 10 minute loggin rule, oh well.

Dane Cook in three days, and excited doesn't cover it. Imma have to leave MPowerment early, but oh well, we've been doing so much lately, I don't feel so bad taking off. Because it the TOURGASM. And I love him. With the piiiicklessss...the piiiicklesss...and hot saaauce...on my bodyyy... ^.^

At dinner last night, Patrick, Ashley and I (PMS) were discussing what Hogwarts houses we would be in. The general consensus was that Patrick would be in Slytherin, Ashley in Ravenclaw (I think) and I would be in Gryffindor. After thinking long and hard about it, (ouch)and talking to my roomate about it (she wasn't listening) I think we were wrong. It is my belief that both Patrick and Ashley would be in Gryffindor, and that I would be a Hugglepuff. 'Cause think about it. I think my role in life is to support wonderful people who will someday do something great. I've been sucking at it lately, because it has gotten harder, but that is still the way I see myself. And that's what Hugglepuffs really are. They are the only people who can do the crap that no one else wants to do and make it possible for everyone else to do what they do best. The Hogwart whores (new Quiditch team name), without the sex. So yes. That is what I think.

Billy eat your beans! BARK!

I just want to let everyone who reads this know that I am Scotish. Not English, not Irish, not French. Scotish. The tall, Caladonia singing, Baggpipe playing, haggis (vegan) eating, daughter of Scots. Every year in the summer I go watch big, burly, hairy men throw logs in the air and wear skirts. So there.

Cordelia: I find it ridiculous that men think big guns make women want sex. Does looking at big guns make YOU think about sex?
Xander: I'm a seventeen year-old boy. Looking at LINOLEUM makes me think about sex.

Sakuracon next weekend! I'm so excited! My first anime convention, yay! I have to find out how much it costs. >.<
I have no otaku friends out here, so I can't wait to go and remember how it feels to be around a whole bunch or crazy fans, all wearing school boy/girl uniforms and trying to speak broken Japanese. Yay!

Blah blah blah...what else do I have to say. Right, my classes. They ROCK this semester. Japanese is great as always, and my TA (Tanno Sensei) is loud and crazy and bouncy and native Japanese so he talks completely in Japanese and no one understands. And when we don't understand, he just talks louder in Japanese, like THATS gonna help. He talks like a television character, with those crazy inflections and his words bounce up and down like him. On Wednesday he broke the overhead screen, and today he broke the overhead, so I'd say we're off to a pretty good start.
Japanese Politics & Government Professor is old and tweed. He's been teaching at UW longer than I've been alive, but the stories from his times in Japan are GREAT, and I know I'll learn a lot. Even though the lectures are TWO HOURS long. >.<
Women in Law and Literature is good. The readings so far are INCREADIBLY interesting, and the lectures are helping me formulate ideas. I can't wait to write the papers, they will be so fresh and full of ideas and different from anything I've written in college so far. But I refuse to use the word, HETERONORMATIVITY.
And finally, my law seminar ROCKS. Hard Ass. In a good way.
It only meets once a week in the godly lecture halls of the UW Law building, but everything we have talked about so far is amazing. It's "Law in Minority Communities," and already we've talked about language controversy along the Mexican border, the growing gap between rich and poor, migrant workers, sex workers, and HIV/AIDS. Amazing. And we get to have two classes downtown in the Federal court building (the new cool one according to Patrick). Sex for yays! ^.^

Lastly, Patrick has made note of his annoyance when people list the drinks they had at night at parties and what not. So, in respect for his annoyance, I will now supply a list of my own.

What Sera had to Drink Today:
One orange juice, purchased from 2 Convenient, with a twist of saliva backwash.
One original silk soymilk, also from 2 Convenient, with a side of Cap'n Crunch.
One cup of water, supplied by 1101's fine SPIKIT.
And finally, to top it all off, a sip from the refined Odegaard drinking fountain. It tasted faintly of metal. Yum.
So that is my list, and I must say, I do indeed feel tipsy.

Earings on monkeys in my pants toes.

On that note, I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Be safe! ^.^

I want to be a duck. Their so cute and waddly, with their little tails moving like...like ducks.
Actually, my mom kinda walks like a duck. She quacks too, but that's not cute.

It's been a pretty good week. My Japanese oral went well, and the final wasn't as deathly as I thought it would be. Yay!

And is it ever GORGEOUS outside. Perfect sun, perfect clouds, perfect warmth, perfect breeze. And the quad. OMG THE QUAD!!!! <-Lots of exclaimation!!!! The cherry trees are in full bloom and it's like walking into paradise. You know those pictures of heaven? It's here. I think my very favorite part about cherry blossoms (sakura if you're one of my whasian friends) is when they fall. It's like snow, but not cold. And the petals are so soft, and they still smell slightly sweet after they fall. It's like the sky is raining twirling peices of velvet or satin or something.
I likes it.

Newtons taste goodly. With the figs that are goodness.
Sleep on a bench with hot chocolate.

Ok. POINT OF POST: me + lots + love + sexy + legs+ cute + boy + more + love = Drew
Now you are all math wizzes. You all pee math.

So yes, I met Drew on um...a day that is not today. And it was good. He complemented my flipflops and I liked it. Not because he liked my flipflops but because it made Patrick angry.
So we asked him THE QUESTIONS, and he gave us some answers that were good. Blah blah blah. At least we know he isn't using Travis for sex. Well...not JUST for sex anyway. I didn't really learn anything about him from those questions because I don't learn that way, but I learned other stuff. Like how he walks, and how he talks, and how he looks right into my eyes when he does it. And how he makes me feel like he really cares what I have to say. WHICH IS NICE FOR A CHANGE. (hint hint, that was a joke) I think my favorite part of the night, besides sucking balls with a purple straw, was watching him move on the couch across from us. How he frikkin' pulls his leg over his damn HEAD to poke the xenga...jenga...tower? Damn dancers. And he fits perfectly against Travis's side, right under his arm, like that's where his head belongs. I like it.
The cutness makes me squirm.
And cross my legs. ^.~

And then, after all of us got cute forehead kisses from my new favorite person, I walked home and had a good talk with Patrick (who was not present) and it was good.
Helpful fact: If YOU talk to yourself, the CRAZY PEOPLE don't talk to you.
Which will be good help to Ashley next time someone asks her if she has any STDs.
And after that talk with Patrick I felt fulfilled and felt the need to ACTUALLY talk to Patrick (aka Chichi the Chihuahua) about stuff. About R-A-E-F...ooo, scary.

Oh, good, it's a big rock.
I can't wait to tell my friends.
THEY don't have a rock this big.
~Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Fun fact about my Japanese TA. She has a pet squirrel. Which is funny because it actually makes sense because it's from Japan where squirrels are much more rare, and actually...does Japan HAVE squirrels? They must, just not in so many numbers. But ANYWAY, it's funny because now that she's here everyone makes fun of her because of all the crazy squirrels on campus who attack people and steal their food...deja vu...did I already write about this...a long time ago?
Doesn't matter, listen to me anyway.

Oo oo! I've been BAREFOOTING it around lately, and my feet are getting gross and dirty. Greco would be proud.
Or disgusted, which ever.

And last night (more copious amount of Drew alert, reader beware). PMS went to Capital Hill to have dinner and watch street performers. Broadway Grill is cool and a SEXY restaurant. I second Patrick's decree that it is a good date restaurant. And the gayest restaurant ever. The kind of restaurant where when a straight couple walks in, everyone's like "woah." I will definately take a cute girl there someday. Now I just have to FIND one. And after I had my boca buger and sweet potato (minus the e) fries, which were weird because the SWEET attacked way after the POTATO. Suprise attack. Strange food. What was I talking about? Oh, right, AFTER that, we went to watch Drew dance on a street corner, and boy, is that boy SEXY! Did I mention his legs? In fishnets...in that cute little orange skirt. Mm, dancer legs. And ass. And I think men's legs are UGLY. But not his, you should all go look at them. In front of the US Bank on Broadway. ^.^ The other guy talked too much though.
Random thought about that. People amaze me. That people can get up and do the things they do, when the whole world seems to just spit at them. Most people just want to live and love. And that is so wonderful. The spitters make me mad. But the spittees make it all worth it. No one can lift your heart like a spittee. ^.^

Yuki: Why don't I go drown you in the lake?
Aya: Anything that will give us a chance to spend time together!
Yuki: On second thought, go drown yourself.
~Fruits Basket

Hmm...other interesting things...nope got nothing. There was lunching, walking, talking and a tummy circle which included PMS + T + Drew. And P CONVIENTLY forgot to mention that me and bunny were a part of that circle in his livejournal!
Bai bai bunny. Um...like...that play...
Yeah, THAT one.

I'm excited to come home. My sister was sick, but I called her today and she was feeling better and watching TV. The Fairly Odd Parents. Sometimes I miss TV.
And then I realize I don't.
Oh right, the home thing. Yeah, excited. I must see people. I don't think I'll be home for Passover though, damnit! I hate people who aren't Jewish and arrange school vaccations so that I can't be Jewish either. And even though my break is only like, a week now, I've just realized that in a few more months I'll be home for SUMMER! Yay! Even though I'll be working my ass off the whole time! Yay! Does anyone know if Ryan is working at BK again this summer? I don't think I can handle a whole summer of animal grease without Prince Charming.
(Note: Burger King does not actually cook with animal fat. They can kill you by heart attack just as well with vegetable grease).

Ok then, I gg do...something cool. Because that is what I do. Cool things. Bai bai! ^.^

Be safe. ^.^

People have been bugging me to update. But I dont' want to. So I'm going to give one of those, "I don't have anything to say, but here's a few of these nonsense quizzes I've taken that no one cares about" deals. Why isn't no one spelled noone? That's how is SHOULD be spelled. Like kilt. Or goed.
So, here is a whole bunch of crap you don't care about.
This is what you all get for bugging me to update. Serves you right.
Better be careful, or I'll start posting song lyrics.
Ouch.

Dee Latyner
You're Dee Latyner!
Dee is a member of the NYPD 27th precinct, and is a
very friendly, laidback and humourous type of
guy. He likes to have fun, he likes to be in
control, and he likes to do his job. Oh, and he
likes Ryo. He's proudly bi-sexual and takes a
liking to Ryo pretty much as soon as they meet;
lucky for him that their boss assigns them as
partners, ne? He makes the most of their
friendship -- for they become very good friends
-- and takes any opportunity to get a little
more, be it a hug, a kiss, a shirt being
removed, or even just the sweetest of smiles.
He's dangerous when drunk. *grin* And he has a
vehement dislike for Bikky.


What FAKE character are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

You're Dee. Youre forceful, and come on too strong
sometimes, but your heart is in the right
place! Youre a great lover, but dont scare away
your prey, ur, "potential boyfriend".
Youre a quick thinker though you slack off a
bit. But hey, theres no problems in that every
once and awhile... right?

So Sera sits down to a pint of soy ice cream...
I have decided that if you eat half a pint/quart/gallon of ice cream, you are disgusting. However, if you eat a WHOLE pint/quart/gallon of ice cream...you are the VICTOR!
Ahh...the indigestion of victory.

The sun is happy this week. Just enough warmth to keep my skin tingling while the wind gives me the greatest chills. I LOVE the wind. It lifts me up.

Drag Show on Friday, super excited. That boy (I remember your name now, I'm just doing this for old times sake) will make a damn fine woman. Ugly, but damn fine.
And Travis.
With his gigantamoungous dress.

Something substantial...
Marraige equality rally in Olympia on Monday (Valentine's day). It was a good day. I made Sir William order me coffee. And there was Pho. And birds. It was really great to see so many people together for a positive message. And it was hosted by the Religious Coalition for Marraige Equality. It was great to see so many religions (even Christians) come together and talk about love as a natural right. There were two United Methodist Churches represented there, it made me happy. They could teach my church back home a thing or two about love. ^.^ Anyway, was good. Sir William is offically the coolest man EVER. I hope I can be like him someday. When he sings my heart smiles. And that is very good.

Ouch...I just got up to throw something out, but my headphones were still attached to my computer. And my head.
Like Professor Ohgihara.

Come away with me by Nora Jones is perhaps the most seductive song EVER. It's so increadibly full of sensuality but in a way that is so rich and wonderful and pure, without making me feel dirty.
"Come away with me in the night..." Honey, I'll come away with you ANY night. And it will be me and you and a piano.
'Cause we all know how I feel about PIANOS...

I'm trying so hard to widen my J-Pop horizons. I mean, I'm lovin' J-Rock and all, but w-inds is my only real J-POP obsession. Well, maybe MISIA.
But anyway...I'm trying to make myself like Flame, but honestly, Keita is scary. Like Yu from Lead. They both look like little munchkins. I'm scared that they are gonna pop out of the computer and eat me. 'Cause munchkins do that you know.
On another w-inds tangent. I'm determined to learn the dances to Another Days and New Paradise. They are both really cool, and I'm sure Patrick and Ashley are sick of seeing the THREE steps I know from the Love is Message PV.

Xena Impersonator: Yes...and this is my...round throwy thing.
Gabrielle: Chakram.
Xena Impersonator: Bless you.

And Callisto is HOT.

So yeah. Gwen. Pretty cool girl. When ever I talk to her she manages to show things in a new light and draw my attention to just how amazing and good the world is. Even when we are talking about something horrible. As a firm optimist, looking at the bright side is just natural for me. But sometimes she brings up the tiniest things that make me say..."you know what? Yeah!" It is my opinion that she is one of the world's greatest untapped resources. For example, she noticed that EVERYONE, yes everyone, has this wonderful little relaxing sigh after they laugh. It's great. And everytime I hear someone or myself do it I think of her. And it reminds me that every moment is worth it because of that little laugh and sigh. Silly and cliche, but so good. Life is good.
(If this is too personal, Gwen can call me, email me, IM me, or use any other of her fine forms of communication to communicate that I should take this little rant section the hell out of my post).
So, in short. Tap Gwen. And spell it with a "Q."

I miss Rai-rai-kun HARD. Like bull.
He's a prince.

I miss PSJC picnics. When I go home Imma spend some quality time at Tea Time catching up. OMG!!!! They got rid of the red bean flavor!! What shall I do? I NEED the BEANS!! >.<

Ashley will bring me Buffy now!
...
...
...
Damn.
Willow has a pillow.
And my pants are blue monkeys.

I leave you with this uplifting message:
The other day the scary homeless preacher man with the orange construction jacket who is on campus everyday preaching about God's wrath and the sin of sexuality was playing hacky sac with a cute scateboarder boy. It was silly and I liked it.
I bet deep down he's a really nice man.

I thought I had more to say. Guess not...

So...yeah, life's pretty good about now.

And, I think I have a livejournal stalker! I’m excited!
::Gives stalker a flamboyant hat and a bright pink Hawaiian shirt::
Unfortunately, I think I might know who it is and that would take the fun out of it really.
Hear that!? I know who you ARE! ^.^ ::Waves::

The sun just won't die. I dunno where all these traditional, rainy Seattle days that everyone's been telling me about are, but they sure as hell aren't here. Today started out overcast and rainy, but in the afternoon and evening the sun won out again and gave us a beautiful golden dusk. I loved it.

My posts are always so frikkin' happy after I watch Fruits Basket. ^.^

Kagura: “You don’t know how a woman feels when she’s in love!”
Shigure: “Yes I do! …Well…at least I’ve felt enough women to venture a guess.”

Greco is Mr. Poo.

I ate lunch with Travis. Which definately WASN'T super awkward.
Travis: So...how was your day?
Sera: Pretty good...how about yours?
Travis: Good, good.
Sera: ...
Travis: ...
::A half an hour of this::
Sera: Alright, have a good day.
Travis: You too, see you.
Sera: Yep.

No, not awkward at all.
I liked it.
Gwen is a pupig.
Which I also like.

Dolyn sounds like an instrument. GWEN plays the DOYLN.

I’ve been craving real, decienty Japanese food. Unlike the American-ish crap teriyaki we keep going out for, so I single handedly convienced the rest of PMS (M- Ashley(Mog) and P-Patrick (I’m the S (this is a lot of parentheses (but not too many)))) to go out with me to Best of Bento. It was great. Veggie tempura, veggie sushi, veggie spring rolls, miso soup and steamed rice. It was good. Lots of food though, I’m still full.

Kagura: “My love!"
Kyo: "My shirt!”

Then to Patrick’s dorm for Moulin Rouge. Definitely not what I expected, but in a good way.
Jesus, don’t I have anything negative to say? Why do I say everything is good or that I liked it?

The following is a list of things I don’t like:
Peanut Butter
Throw up
People who don’t like w-inds
Dustin
When the cute girl doesn’t come to Japanese class
The word “Boobies”

That’s really all I can think of right now.

You know, I sat down at my computer thinking I had a whole bunch of really interesting things to say…but I didn’t. So you’ll have to get your kicks off on this very random post.

So…yeah. Imma go watch another episode of Fruits Basket and go to bed.

Be safe. ^.^
