Wow. It's now been about two full weeks since I started this post.... I've been working in a store about 55 miles from my home store for those two weeks and my attitude has been all over the map while I've been down there five days a week. (And usually staying overnight for strings of four days at once).
[EDIT: 55 miles, not 5. I'm not THAT much of a whiney baby. >.>]

First Impressions )
Luckily, that rant was cut short because I started watching Arashi no Shukudai-kun first and was too in love with MatsuJun's new hair to care. Additional Arashi Babble goes here. )

..... all that was two weeks ago. There's been a lot of development on the work front. I'm actually getting very involved in the store. I'm growing to love the team (more on that later), it's clear that they really have their hearts in the right place. We're slowly getting back on track with freight and recovery. There's a growing sense of ownership with me and the store. And... a lot of other things going on that I don't know how I feel about. I will be down there for at least one week, probably two.

I get the feeling that my home store crew figured out where I was in the last few days. I've gotten more calls for store transfers in two days than I did in the whole last week I was there. :P

In the last couple of days, I've been blazing through dramas in my free time. So... some commentary is in order.

Mei-chan no Shitsuji 8-10 )

Atashinchi no Danshi 3 )

TeniMyu - Imperial Presence B/B Version )

Then today... in addition to lots and lots of Halo, I watched several eps of VS Arashi and Shukudai-kun. I really think VS (not 'versus' Aiba and Sho tell us, but vee-es) is the unsung hero of their variety shows. It just has a tension and energy that none of the other shows manage and you get to see a side of the boys that I really enjoy. Also, Nino is a tiny tiny little man and I adore him. The guest interactions are just different on VS, in a way that I enjoy. Also... Jun and Nino really get to show their strenths, which is awesome.

Tomorrow, more work. Wednesday, probably pogs and Thursday 2071. Guh, this week will be killer.

Tonight I tried to pick up VS Arashi at 39. Which is, of course, a review of the special. SOO... I ended up decideing to go back and download the special after all. Watching it, I am back in love with this show all over again.

Nnn. Mmkay. My Arashi love for the moment is fulfilled. And I should really really sleep before I go to work in... 7 hours. Oh crap.

Also... Meme from [profile] nympholepsia.

I think I've worked about 45 hours so far this week... and I still have my saturday shift left to go. Ah... the holiday season in retail. At least I got to sleep in yesterday and today. ^_^

Spending a lot of time playing Pokemon lately.

In other news, I'm having Arashi Issues )

Also, I epic fail at housework and productivity. ;_;

Yes, it's 4 am.
Obi is done and despite my uncertainty about the size of the interfacing insert it came out /really/ well. Deffinitely putting remaking Benkei's obi in this style on my list for the future.
Tomorrow is for tabi and fans and wig trimming, etc. Then hopefully time to start on Kagetoki repairs. And the scarf! Which means setting up my serger. Damn, must not forget about that! I'm hoping for a late truck on tuesday, but I'll have to call and see. ^^;

At least the hand-hemming and putting in the ties on the obi gave me time to catch up on VS Arashi and Himitsu (last week).

Between all that, I finished up our Workmanship forms and worked a little on the scrapbooking portion of the Kajiwara-kyoudai Project. I'm taking the book with us for reference and putting my name and cell number on it. I know they say that you might not get it back but... she was really good with my reference stuff two years ago. If I feel insecure about it I'll only leave them the swatch cards.

[Edit: 6:15 am - I have a lovely straight-edged strip of chiffon to work with for the scarf and I'm caught up to Himitsu 21 and AnS 99 (damn, but I want to see 24-hour Terebi... like NOW) I'm thinking I might not even bother to surge the damn scarf if it gives me too much trouble. We'll see.
Time for some sleep now, though I need to get up at a reasonable hour and get back to work on things.
*sniffles* Damn them for playing Nino's whole letter to the group and damn them for using 'Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi'... I'm not exactly strong against those things at the best of times and at 6 in the morning? ;_;]

Music Lovers
The performances were good. But the best thing? Sho's fake Jeans. Seriously! best idea EVER. ^___^ Dork.

I could go on about Maoh 7 and how much I just wanted to give Naruse a big hug and pet him... but that would be silly. Anyone with feelings about this episode, please comment, I need me some Maoh fangirling.

Costume Progress for today
-four more designs done. Finishing off the back of the kimono. We learned that Maya should /not/ try to reformat the flower part of the design. (pictures of failure to come later)
-also took lots of progress pics and hopefully didn't mess up my wrist too bad. It was really hurting earlier.

Himitsu 19

We moved Hokuto today too (they're repaving the parking lot, so we had too), and got the stereo out. She's on the street now, so hopefully I'll call the junk yard people early next week. I'll miss her sometimes. :3

Also! Jess finished Avatar tonight! The ending is just as awesome the second time around.

I failed to do laundry tonight though.... which means I have no clothes to wear to work tomorrow... crap.

I can't bring myself to watch Shukudai-kun now. I think I'll poke at MarioKart instead.

I waited the whole week eagerly for this.
I need to keep notes because damnit, they need to win.

Caught up on some missed shows as part of trying to decompress a bit tonight.

I also took the chance of tonight to finish Jun's appearance on 99+. He gets /so/ worked up and excited about high places. Seriously.
Also! Suwabe /so/ narrates this show! I even checked the credits. It's totally him. >.> I shouldn't be considering downloading more of it just to hear more of his soft polite announcer voice. Definitely not. Idea canceled.

Work has been crazy, but productive. (Unlike last week which was insanity and still involved achieving nothing except for a lot of planograms)
Clearance scan of pretty much all the fabric happened monday and tuesday with virtually no warning.
But I'm writing this because I dozed off on the couch and woke up to see "Oh Yeah" and am overwhelmed suddenly by my love for Arashi. I'm watching the Time Con while I ramble so please forgive any confusion.
Time Con, TV Shows and Cosplay Love )
Damnit. OhMiya just kissed and now I'm distracted by Jun's insanely sparkly pants.
Must be time for bed for real.
I think my rant was about done anyway.
I wish we sold that kind of sparkle-dot stuff. :3
....right. Anyway.
setra: (Default)
No one (neither [profile] ashitara nor [personal profile] kirakirastar) told me about 'VS Arashi'. This is terribly sad as it is the most entertaining show that I've started yet in this fandom. Seriously. I mean within the first episode alone....
There was a lot to rant about! )

Suffice it to say: New favorite Arashi Show. Though I still want to see more Shukudai-kun... did something happen to it while I wasn't looking?

Also... "Dream 'A' Live" Special Edition? Sold out everywhere. My will to purchase the regular version is somewhat low... though I probably will.... eventually. >.> It has 'Happiness' on it.... But no solos.... but I can download them... I know I shouldn't care... but.... *wibbles* The Time Con DVD is $58 on YesAsia or $51 from CD Japan... I'll look into Amazon as well...
