08/02/2002 Archived Entry: "I Have Magical Feet!"

La de da... didn't really do anything today... now time to talk about my shoes! ^_^

My shoes are cool. They're green Vans. I'm no skater or anything, but I love Vans. They're just so cool! They're light and have great grip. It doesn't hurt that they come in the color green. ^_^ I've had mine for about a year or so now and they're starting to show their age. Which brings me to the reason why I'm even talking about my shoes: my mom asked my sister to go get me new shoes behind my back! She was considering Sketchers for a while, but my mom said that we could wait for a while for a sale or something. Good thing too because if they had bought me those, then I would have just told her to take them back. I quite like my shoes right now. I know I'll have to replace them someday, but not until I lose a substantial amount of grip on the bottom. I ask, what's the use of wearing Vans if they don't have grip? It seems that my current shoes still have enough grip, so I'm fine with them. I told my mom that I'd like green Vans, so now she knows better. Now she's on the lookout for a sale on Vans. Woo.

Hey, talking about shoes and feet, you know what's cool about my feet? You know how you can never wear the same size shoe because different brands like to make their sizes different from other brands? Well, I'm special because I'll fit into any size 11 mens. I'm serious! Whenever I try on shoes, 11 is just right. Whenever I go out ice skating or bowling, size 11 fits like a charm. I have magical feet I tell you! ^_^

I finished Star Ocean EX today. Overall, not a bad series and a pretty nice adaptation of the game, but I still have some gripes. Why don't Precis and Boman fight? I was expecting Precis to whip out her big mechanical punching hand sometime. And Boman. I was expecting him to throw pills around or at least swing his fists. My biggest gripe though: Leon used Extinction! That's just absurd! Anyone who has played the game knows how hard it is to get Extinction. You can only find (not learn) it in the secret dungeon! And the secret dungeon is only accessible once you reach the last save point! That's all the way at the end of disc 2! Star Ocean EX only covers disc 1! Leon couldn't possibly know Extinction! Gwar! They could have made him use Daemon's Gate. At least that's somewhat plausible. Gwar....

I watched Happy Lesson OVA 3 and TV episodes 1-3 today. Funny series. ^_^ Is it just me, or does the TV series seem a lot less hectic? What I liked most about the OVAs is the hecticness of it all. The TV series isn't bad, but I would have liked it better if it were more like the OVAs. Oh well.

Crew:
Captain: me
Cook: Gomaki
Doctor: Hana
Lookout: Juri
First Mate: Riku
-Tell me if you'd like to change

Positions left:
Navigator (I need a freakin' navigator! How the heck am I getting anywhere? -_-)
Sharpshooter (Eh... I guess Ryoko and Shana get to battle this one out -_-;)
Thief (Thanks imouto for the suggestion ^_^)
-Eh... you could always suggest other positions

Saga:
You're welcome. ^_^ Girls deserve to get flowers. Just not real flowers. It's wrong to kill a plant and give it to someone just because it's pretty. -_-

Being bored isn't exactly the most wonderful feeling in the world. -_- I suppose being busy isn't exactly a walk in the park either, is it? I hope you get some boredom-time sometime soon. ^_^

Yay! Good luck with the driving. Sounds like you're getting better already. That's great! It's really not all that hard once you get used to it. Look at some of the people out there with licenses right now. ^_^;; Just keep on practicing. Practice makes perfect!

Eh... favorite book? To tell you the truth, I don't really read for leisure. ^_^; Although, of the books I've already read, I suppose I could recommend some stuff: Beloved by Morrison, Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky, 1984 by Wells, Memoirs of a Geisha by Golden, the Dune series by Herbert, and Catch-22 by Heller. If you've read those, then I could probably come up with more....

You cut your hair!? Ooo~.... I happen to like long hair on girls. -_- Oh well... you decided to hack it off. I guess your decision is the best decision....

Juri:
Thanks for joining the crew! ^_^ For more information on the whole crew thing, look here.

Riku:
Heh heh... ok, I'll keep you in mind when I can't find any BoA music. ^_^

You got first mate! *pat pat*

Tichan:
Star Ocean EX ends all crappily because there's another series that follows: Star Ocean DX. EX covered the first disc of the game and DX covers the second.


That's all for now. It's hot here. x_x I need to try to get it cooler now. *Opens door, opens window, and turns on fan*

Oee... magical feet indeed!! heehee My shoe... um... ^^;; more like my foot, not exactly magical. It's actually more abnormal than normal because they're short (length-wise) and wide -_-;; Techinically speaking I can fit into a kid's size 4 shoe snugly if it was like a Van's (they have wider width for some reason) or an adult's size 5 or 6 if it was wide. >_> Meia likes to poke fun at my feet because if you only stared down at our feet, you can tell us apart lol. ^^;; I don't mind having weird feet actually, and frankly not like embarassed or anything. =) For me, almost all my shoes are in different sizes. One's a kid's size 4 (my rollerblades!...or more like Meia's too... and otherwise, how can I know I fit into them?), another is a women's size 6 sandal, my old school loafers are a size 7, my tennis shoes are 6.5 and maybe there's a 7 too, my other pair of sandals are like 43 (asian measurements) and another is 45. Not to mention my other pair of sandals is a size "S" meaning 4-6 in US terms, and another is an M (probably 5-7 in US terms). @_@;; I wish one size would always fit me...

*ahem* Onto other stuff! I never knew Tsu-kun loves nature that much! =) I hate to see people cut flowers too. I think it's nicer to for them to remain on the plant and give it colour. Whenever I gave my mom flowers they'd be in a pot. ^^;; In other words,... it'd be like a pot of flowers I gave my mom, just not the blossoms themselves. And when flowers wither and dry in nature and I'm around, I like to collect the petals into my little basket in my room. Kinda like potpourri... it gives off a really nice, subtle and exotic scent.

Books.. mmm... I've read some of those up there. ^^ I found the ones I didn't read in my bro's abandoned bookshelf (I call it that because he never opened it ever since he finished high school). Plan to read them in between my free times. Thanks for the reccomendations! More are always welcomed... hehe.

About my hair... lol. I love the way you phrased how I technically chopped off my hair: "hack it off". XD Maybe I should show Tsu-kun a picture of me of how I look like right now? Except in real life I think you can see a hint of the dark circles starting to show from my lack of sleep. Long hair as I admitted is prettier on most girls. ^^;; When I started to get better after my um, long sickness in 2nd grade, I started to grow my hair out again with the usual trims until it was a little past shoulder length a three years ago. And then let's just say I started to have... some issues again, and the long limp hair I didn't do anything to it anymore then made me have an even sicklier appearance. I didn't want people to worry, so I had it cut short to a little past my ears. And after that surgery, I really didn't look too good so I kept my hair short ever since then. The day before yesterday before I decided to "hack it off" (sorry, I find it very amusing using those words! ^^) it kinda gave me bad memories of being so sick and weak again. When it was short at least I looked a bit happier and care-free... ^^;; So... yeah... hehe. But yeah, I can show you a picture of me if you'd like. Just promise not to stalk me and scare me by surprise!lol. I'd also love to see how this oniichama looks like. ^_~
