OMG I HAVE CHEETOS. REAL ONES. T___T I haven't even eaten any yet, just sticking my head in the open bag and breathing deeply.

Finally took Syuusuke to the Apple Store in Shinsaibashi to have his top case replaced. Don't know WHY it took me so long to get around to doing that. Good God, that place is like walking into a wet dream. :Q The two guys who helped me at the Genius Bar saw my desktop, and were like, 「あっ、きれい」 and we chatted about flowers and cameras. X3 Plus, Syuu is looking quite sexy with his pure white uncracked top case and brand new keyboard. <3

(Officially, this was a trip to the consulate to get my passport renewed, which I also managed to do, despite being fate's buttmonkey all morning.)

The unthinkable -- dare I say, the unspeakable -- has happened.

Japan is in the middle of a butter shortage. ToT

I was able to skip out of work today and go to the Gion Matsuri parade, which was awesome, but I only took one picture before my camera decided that all my batteries were dead. >.> And I have lots of work to do to get ready for Fuji tonight so I can go to the baseball game tomorrow. It's the prefectural quarter-finals or something like that.

This spastic and discombobulated post is brought to you by the letter stress.

And now, for another rousing edition of "Look At All the Crap Emily Bought!" I ended up NOT going to Comic City today after all, because there's a bigger one in August, and it's a lot of time and money and hassle just for some mediocre porn that I already have too much of anyway. Plus, the group that was going wanted to see Juno afterwards, which was all hell no. But I promised [ profile] rkold that I'd send her package today, and hey, I was already dressed, so I went down to Kyoto Station. In case you're wondering, Kyoto Station is where the central post office is, which is open all day on Sunday, and there's also a big craft store there, and I needed to buy some snaps for my h.Naoto skirt. (That's right, bitches, I said h.Naoto.) And the easiest way to get from the subway to the post office to the craft store without getting soaked because yay, rainy season, is to use the underground mall. And I was weak. But most of it was stuff I really did need. I got some socks and a couple calculators and a necklace stand at the 3 coin shop, where everything is ¥300. Of course, that's not including tax, so it's actually impossible to buy anything with 3 coins, but whatever. Then I went looking for the shoe store I had seen earlier, because they had Toppers, and I really REALLY needed a new pair of sneakers. But I was distracted on the way by a really cute blouse. >.> It was a little expensive, and I probably shouldn't have bought it, but it actually fit, and it's SO Japanese. So it can be my token Japanese girly shirt. I just need to find the right thing to layer it with. Then I found the shoe store, and they were cute and fit well and were actually not that expensive considering what shoes in Japan usually go for, and considering how hard it is to find shoes here that you can actually wear all day without wanting to shoot yourself, so I got them. And then I thought I was done, but a display of folding fans caught my eye. Of course the one I liked was the ¥3000 one in a display of ¥1000 ones, but it was really nice, and I really needed one, so I got it anyway. I was also tempted to get the Disney's Belle perfume that store had, but I didn't. XD The End. Until next week, when the sale at Black Peace Now starts. >_>;;
This shopping trip was brought to you by the numbers 7 and 11, which is the only place I can get cash on weekends. *fang*

But yes, I saw Indiana Jones yesterday! *fangirl* It was far from perfect; spoilers )

Back on the topic of doujinshi, last weekend I went with Ilona and [ profile] nightflight to a Phoenix Wright doujin and cosplay event. It was small, but fun. There were lots of good cosplayers, including a cute-as-a-button Apollo, a freaking amazing 6-years-ago Mia, a perfect Judge, and a Jean Armstrong, lololol. There was also a raffle, and Ilona won a pair of Gavinners or whatever the Japanese name of the band is guitar picks, which she gave to me. And if your birthday was in June, you got a bag of Godot's special blend coffee. As for doujinshi, there wasn't much for pairings that I like, but I got two Gavincest, one when they were younger, which I can fully endorse, and one just because it's a whole lot of really well-drawn cat-ear porn. Ironically enough, after explaining to my cohorts how Klavier and Apollo just didn't have that "spark" in the game, they sparked in my own mind, so I think I'm an official fan of the pairing now. ^^

Long sentences are long. Also rainy season sucks, even though it looks like we got off easy this year. Also, I want to punch American Guy in the face, but that's an entry for another time.

Oh, and I uploaded my old Yami no Matsuei music video to youtube. Validate me, plz.

>.<;;;;;;;;;;; I am officially not allowed to buy anything fandom-related for at least a year. *dead* Thanks to [ profile] rkold, I now own a doujinshi of the U.S. screwing England. Except I didn't check the cover for the pr0n warning, so they don't actually screw. But they do make out on a couch. DFHkjsdrubglieu I don't even particularly like doujinshi; whyyyyyy is it so addictive? ;-;

[edit] Oh right, because it has Atobe bribing Momo to steal Tezuka's uniform, and then Atobe wears Tezuka's pants on his head. How silly of me.

And we were just about to do the big finale!! >OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GEKIDASA.

The nozzles were badly clogged, so I got this special cleaning solution, and after three applications, finally started to see some progress. And then I got a paper jam. And that was when I learned that there is no way of accessing the back side of the rollers of an Epson Stylus short of taking the entire printer apart. (Which I'm sure they did on purpose. >_>) But, with 2 pairs of specially shaped tweezers, 1 hand shoved down the paper feed slot, and 90 minutes of wrestling with it (literally), I finally got the paper out. x__x My hand is so bruised now.

And then my garbage disposal broke. By which I mean, anything that goes down the kitchen sink, half of it comes back out the bottom of the disposal. x________________x

I got my hospital bill today, and saw that I was overcharged a few hundred dollars. So I called my health insurance's "customer service". NO HELP AT ALL. The first woman I talked to tried to tell me that my deductible didn't count towards my out-of-pocket maximum. I don't know what orifice she pulled that bullshit out of, because their definition of "out-of-pocket maximum" is, when deductible + copays = certain amount, you don't pay anymore. So I spoke to someone else, and she agreed that the other woman was full of crack, but couldn't figure out where the problem was, and therefore tried to tell me that I wasn't being overcharged. I was the one who had to pull up the .pdf of my printed explanation of benefits, which just happened to mention that they made another $500 payment to the hospital on that claim. This was mentioned NOWHERE on my online explanation of benefits. I swear, I've never met anyone who works in or with the health insurance industry who actually understands how it works.


Good thing Back to the Future OSTs are love.

Just to drive home the fact that today is really not my day, I was at work for about an hour when I looked down and saw that I was wearing one pink shoe and one blue shoe.

Yeah. I fail.

Stopped by the grocery store on my way home from work. Came out, and my left front tire was completely flat. Completely. Can't drive on it at all. I have a spare, but not the tools to put it on myself, and especially not in the dark when I've never done it before. And of course it's freaking midnight. The store is closed. There's no one around. Lesboy won't pick up the damn phone even though he probably only went to bed five minutes earlier because he usually stays up to watch South Park. I don't know the numbers of anyone else who might still be awake. So what do I do? Steal a grocery cart and walk home, in 29° weather, with no jacket, PAST SKUNKS. D: Thank God I'd noticed a footpath from the apartments to the highway a few months ago, or it would have taken me at least twice as long.

And now I'll have to buy at least one new tire in addition to new shocks and new brake pads. Dammit, Sei. The wheel may be damaged, too. And the tires have to be special ordered, and I know the tire store guys are gonna give me the hard sell for snow tires, even though they're a total waste of money.

I still can't feel my fingers. x_x
