*wilts* lol

My head says it's 3am, the clock says something else entirely, lol. (7pm in Seoul?)

I'm sitting in Incheon. One more flight. Then passing out. It'll be 6am in my head when we arrive. Mmm. Good times.

Photobucket

Yes, that's right. Mmm. Can I just carry one of those in my pocket? The world looks so much brighter with chai.

We almost missed our bus, then the airport, then the 11-ish hour flight to Korea, then.. Then on we go.

Photobucket Also, Incheon. Bad pic. So it goes.

Also, there is lightning here right now... That's not super happy making. But...so it goes.

Photobucket Our cute meal. One of them.

...Brain dead. But that's day one, so far.

Oh, today. Today today today.

So, bank took forever. Changing yen to dollars, and ordering yuan. _-_ That took... this side of forever.

Then, at the post office, I was picking up the second of the two packages I got today. This one I had to sign for, and I hadn't answered the door cause I was in pajamas, and that's just awkward when they apologize for waking you up at 2pm. :3 But they took 10 minutes of confusion to find the package. Sigh.

But that package was the important one. Not that what's under it is not, lol.

The it's one of the first times I've really had a reason to go "Wow, this is real...really real."



I turned it on, and it glowed, and I think I screamed, just a little.

I'll stop shaking pretty soon. I think.

First person to offer to feed and house me in return for fic, insomuch that it gets me out of this project, we have a winner.

I'm going to take stock of this work project at noon, but I thiiiink, getting it done on time is more like a very nice dream at this point. One person =/= enough.

/end work drama

I'm finishing my volcano program from the wee hours of the morning. Mt. St. Helens! So pretty before it blew. :( That's really all I knew of volcanoes growing up... The big kaboom. Trips to St. Helens, seeing the cars and houses that had been buried... Seeing the gigantic fuzzy Sasquatch that scared me into tiny little pieces. (Not the Sasquatch so much as the thought that it could fall on me. Poor Grandma, trying to drag me close for pictures.) Mm, let's hope that the rest of the Cascades hold it together.

I'm done with breakfast. Back to work. ;_;

...I think I'm getting sick. D: Or...I am sick. It took me... two and a half hours of being awake to realize that. I thought it was just allergy head at first. My head has begun to descend into Muzzy and Weird, and my throat has started hurting in the Usual Manner. ...-_-;;;;;;;;; So now I am gulping down scalding green tea. XD XD Oh good gracious. ...I just got up from an hour, hour and a half nap. Woken not by my choice. Stupid phone. :|

...But it was an interesting nap. I know it was a bookstore, with one little room and 3-4 bookshelves, and you went outside to go into a larger (expansive, ginormous) bookstore. There were book. But they also sold equipment for...swimming? Sun-dial watches? O.o 10 and 40 second timers that wouldn't break in the water? Whut? I thought they were anklets at first. -_-; ...And then at the end, something happened I don't recall, an accident or something. And Heechul is standing in front of Siwon, who is all aflutter, and gesturing to this paper I had to find on my messy couch (?) and literally saying... "This will make them better" (emphasis his) and Siwon being all ";_; I know, hyung." ...And then the phone call. Okaaaay. Whatever, brain. :|

So I took a trip this weekend! The highway between here and there is getting so bad. So rough. I get paranoid that I have a flat tire or something, because there's so much vibration. And then I more or less mostly ran the beginning of a red light on the way home. :)....And spent the next five miles near tears explaining to the non-existent police officer about what happened. We ate lemon chicken and watched the Super Show dvds, a couple eps of Oppa Band... Watched half of Adonis Camp, and all of Full House. It was the first time I'd seen all of Full House since... a long time ago, and since at that point I'm pretty sure I knew who Siwon was (<3), and Heechul, and was learning this Hankyung boy, that I totally missed how Kibum and Donghae are all joined at the hip and touchy. Um. Whoops, was supposed to be inspired for HenHae. ...Though Adonis Camp did give some interesting inspiration there.

There was a cow that got over the fence on the way home, and I watched it as I sped by. Cows don't usually go darting into the road, so I wasn't too concerned. Then five miles later, there's a deer standing at the edge of the pavement, a really gorgeous young buck, and he and I, we eyed each other cautiously as I approached... He was running back into the forest when I caught him on my rear view mirror. (Saw a dead deer a few miles later, so hope that buck stayed in the trees...)

...That's all the random I can muster. I think... it's time for soup.

Weird couple of days. Had a good day-of birthday... Thank you all for your good wishes. <3 Woke up about 7:45am, did not finish up the fic I was supposed to. (Behold, today's offering.) Did have pizza! And it was good. No cake though. Will have to contemplate what I should make in the next few days to make up for that. There's this amazing cake I've been eyeballing a while, and I haven't made a good, actually-turned-out chocolate cake.

Went to bed about 2:30 this morning... Tried to sleep until this insidious little fic kept sneaking in and waving its arms. Dimples. Sniff. Anyway, dragged myself out of bed, wrote a thousand words, and tossed myself back into bed a little after three. Woke up at 6:45 because the phone rang (ugh) and then slept until about 9, at which point the phone rang again. Should have gotten up at that point. Instead, the sun was annoying me, so I wandered through the house, got my eye mask (which I love, love, love) and... slept until 3pm? >.> Wut? I had some kind of long involved dream in there, but under that mask, I wasn't waking up for beans. I'm heading to sleep within the next half hour and tying myself there if I have to. Seriously. I need to get back on schedule. Not getting enough sleep and getting too much sleep are both kind of detrimental to my mental wherewithal.

Between the new SiHan and the new KyuMi (and spinoffs and sequels), which are sitting on my shoulders all bright and smiling and beautiful, I will literally need to tie myself. Count sheep. Listen to the rain. The imaginary rain. Anything. Where is Kyu when you need him? Come say goodnight. Need to type what I wrote while gone, too.

Because I wax long on my writing, as usual )

Pizza party today, yes/yes? Must find my American cash to fund this feast. Mmmm, pineapple...

I am now older than all of SuJu! For almost one month again. At least until Eeteuk's birthday comes. XD In my nice Western way of counting ages.

I am hobbling around like a grandma. That hike from one Kinokuniya to the other did me in. Or maybe it was the hike from Harajuku. Probably that one.

SiHan oneshot posted today-ish, yes/yes? It was almost posted before I left, but I ran out of A. Time, and B. It needed more scenes to flesh out the end. So, must add scenes today.

Caught up on Soompi (skimmed), haven't even started at Miracle and barely glanced at SJ-World. So yes, flist on lj first. Then email? Someone is keeping track of what I should be doing, like adding people and replying right? Oh wait, is that me? Help, someone.... *____*

Wait, is it morning? Is it night? I hardly know any more. lol

So, we got on a flight...Yesterday? May...20? And walked off of the plane on May 21st, 13 hours after boarding in Newark, out of Narita airport. Hello Tokyo! Hello Japan!

Only took a while to get here. But holy buckets, that's a long flight. O.o I think I will only ever fly from the west coast from now on should another flight be required, like say to Korea. (AHEM, I'm looking at you Super Junior.)

Anyway. Paying a premium price for internet service in the downstairs of our hotel because we don't trust ourselves not to get lost. I haven't said a word in Japanese, and I think I took it longer in college than Heather did.

Still, we accidentally managed to order not two but three meals tonight at the restaurant, two chicken tempura type things and a curry dish and we wondered why the waiter was staring at us funny. He was probably wondering why I was giving him puppy eyes, because I'm not used to having to ring a buzzer (?!) to order food. Oh, first experience ordering food in a restaurant all on our own. Heather did a good job!

And that drabble prompt I got foisted about childhood SiHan, somehow grew from drabble to full fledged "Will be a fic" one shot. And all that other fic. Good times. I will have fic galore to type when I'm not paying a buck for five minutes of computer time. :P So if I'm not responding to comments, that's why. <3

Hello from Los Angeles!

So far we've had a good time... No awesome celebrity spotting, but still. :P We'll spot them on stage tonight if nothing else.

We got our first taste of Disney last night, as kind of a miracle, and got to go on some rides... Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, the Indiana Jones Adventure... Indiana Jones was amazing. *_* Good thing they give you seat belts. And Pirates... Got showered. My bag and sleeve were wet. ;_; But good times. More Disney tomorrow.

Of course yesterday was exhausting. And I'm still half asleep, lol. Still, have a pic I took out the airplane window yesterday. <3 (And no one mentioned the pics in the last post didn't work. Sigh. So dumb, me.)







ETA: I lied. I just saw one of SNSD. From 30 feet. Random!
