Hello everyone. So today is my 21st birthday! I know traditionally this means you go celebrate in a bar or something but I dont do bars, group get togethers or alcohol. I completely do not drink nor plan to ever start. That being said, I've spent my day lazing about, watching the dvds I bought for myself, reading some romance novels and eating ice cream cake, which my dad got for me.

Thank you to everyone who's sent me birthday wishes! I'm really grateful and happy that so many people took the time to wish me a happy birthday. It's a small gesture but I really appreciate it, especially those who took the time to make me pretty little graphics or even get me something <333 you are all wonderful people and precious friends. and enjoy this while you all can cause I aint gonna be this warm and nice all the time. and Sonya you werent late ^^, it's still the 20th in my timezone.

I also mega sorry for the late replies in my last post, I replied to everyone but I confess it took me 3 days to get around to it. I really appreciate comments, I'm always happy to know people are reading and want to chat with me. But I confess I've had alot on my mind lately, when fall semester at my college resumes a new chapter in my life is going to be starting. Because I actually have goals I'm working towards now, I'm going to have my license finally and I will HOPEFULLY have lost damn weight by then but so far not doing very well on that account, I want to blame all the wonderful delicious carbs I eat but truth be told i've been lazy on the exercising. That being said, I promise to try harder to be more prompt with my replies!

I bought Shakespeare Retold from UK amazon, and while I didnt get ahold of a region free player like I wanted I managed to watch some of the DVD on my dad's computer, since my little netbook has no cd slot. BBC basically took popular Shakesperan Plays: taming of the shrew, much ado about nothing, midsummer nights dream and macbeth. And attempts to adapt them for a modern audience while casting the characters in modern day settings and situations. It's a pretty novel idea and since it's the BBC I figure it stands a chance of being really good too.

Thoughts+Impressions on Taming of the Shrew )
So I think it worked out well enough. I enjoyed it, I cant wait to see what they do with the rest of the plays. Especially one of my fave Shakespeare plays "A midsummer night's dream".

Hello flist! I have made the final cuts on my friends list, I know I said i would be doing the cut on may 7th but I changed my mind. and really I dont think anyone I cut will care or in fact even notice that i have cut them. Anyway those who are left, congrats you get to spend another year reading my insane ramblings. You must feel so glad, I know I do ;) I am happy to have seen how many people wanted to stay on my flist and keep up with me. I love all of you, really, in vary degrees of course but love is love yo.

Anyway, I've also made more than a handful of new friends via my new latest obsessions and fandoms, welcome ladies to the crazy parade! I am Taima your host in this land of wtfuckery, please enjoy your stay. and call me Tai.
As far as introductions go, I think my profile and various past memes in my lj sum me up rather well and really I dont want to talk about myself now. ha ha ha ok that's a lie, I love talking about myself. but since I do that enough already, I'm going to instead talk about my journal, so those of you on the flist will have a better idea of what to expect in the coming weeks/months or however long you unfortunate souls choose to stay on board.
This journal, is not just a fandom journal, it's not just a personal journal, this journal is me. it encompasses everything that goes on in my mind. It will cover my life, my interests, my aspirations, my thoughts, my loves, my hates, my dreams, everything. I dont feel like fragmenting the different aspects of my life or character into several different journals or filters. Everything is in one place, it's all here. It's all or nothing folks. I have only two filters right now, and one of them I dont use very much.

One of those filters is for JE, that is Johnny's Entertainment and if you dont know what that is it's ok, because you're probably not on that filter then! But for those who do know what that is, I'm going to be honest. I wont be blogging about JE or Kanjani8 that much anymore. and about that... )

So for specifics, here is a nice list of what I plan to blog about for now on.

* The main function for this lj for now one will be to either review or discuss or share impressions about the various tv shows or films I watch. Foreign films included. There will be fangirling/squeeing and meta/theories/discussion as well.
*I will continue to do various lj memes and rankings. Not too often but often enough that it merits mentioning. I have a backlog of memes that people tagged me for and I WILL do them...eventually.
*I will post about my life now and then, not particularly often but it will happen. It can be anything about my school, career, future or just spewing my thoughts and feelings about life/the universe/love/friendship/my future etc etc. If I go on a trip or something really wonderful/terrible happens then chances are it will be blogged about here as well.
*I still love cooking, and I fully intend to go back to blogging about dishes I've successfully made and hopefully posting recipes here as well.
*Finally I will engage in the occasional picspam, which can be about anything I want. Desserts, clothes/fashion, models, actors, actresses, musicians, you name it

If any of this sounds especially unappealing anyone is free to defriend at will. I just wanna put it out there what my lj will look like for now on so no one feels mislead that i was more interesting or into a particular fandom than I actually am.

And that's all, I have exams wednesday so I wont be updating at all probably until afterwards. See ya! &hearts

A. People who have been tagged must, if they choose to participate, write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.
Please italicize the new question if you do that.

01. What are your nicknames?
Tai, Tai-chan, Taiyaki, taitai, Taichou, Maitai, nee-chan

02. How does your hair look like currently?
wavy, and kinda flat. Today is hair washing day.

03. What's new in your life right now?
new semester starts in a day, my new laptop arrives today or tomorrow...that’s it.

04. How many colors are you wearing now?

05. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I am both, seriously. I’m either one or the other at any given moment. It just depends on my mood and my comfort level in the area I’m in. I prefer to be an extrovert though

06. What was the last book you read?
and actually finished? I totally cant remember. I think it was this book about an Indian American girl…”born confused” I think it was called. I read a lot but rarely fiction novels as I tend to never finish them :/

07. Do you nap a lot?
On dull days where I feel lethargic yes. On other days when I’m alert and happy and have stuff to do, I don’t at all

08. If you had to have a one night stand with someone famous, who would you like it to be?
I definitely don’t HAVE to have one night stands with anyone. I don’t like the idea of them personally. Yes this is internet meme question and I’m taking it too seriously but it’s either this answer or Eito orgy/lesbian spree through all my fave female idols and actresses and musicians. Seriously I have a thing for too many people XD.

09. Is there anything that has made you happy these days?
not much, this past week has been tough on me. But yesterday, something made me rather happy. Oh and when I get my new netbook I’ll be happy.

10. What's your current obsession?
Kanjani8..pretty much. I like a lot of things but that’s the only one I’d call an “obsession”

11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
10-20 minutes. More if I’m really sleep and less if I had my stuff planned out before hand.

12. What websites do you visit daily?
yahoo mail, livejournal ß is the only stuff I visit daily. I have a few other sites I like to visit now and then. Like and mcsweeney’s, and every now and then I go on YT clips binges or vist mysoju to watch a drama.

13. Do you write fic? What was the last fic you wrote?
I did write one recently though I normally don’t, I aint sayin the name here though since when I post it I don’t want anyone to know I wrote it XD. As for original fiction I do a lot of fragments and short stories and things that I prefer not to spread around. It’s more for myself than anything else. I like writing poems too but the inspiration for them comes to me very sporadically.

14. What's the last thing you laughed about?
My ‘payment’ to a friend of mine since she did me a favor. Her request made me LOL, you’ll all see what it is soon enough.

15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head?
hoshi mono wa, I was watching a subbed version of it yesterday and it’s really stuck on me lately

16. What's the last movie you saw?
I so cant remember, I think it was The Duchess? I watch so much stuff on a regular basis that I cant remember everything XD

17. Would you enter a relationship with your ideal partner, even if you knew he/she was seriously involved with/married to someone else and would never leave them?
My “ideal” would not be someone who’d be willing to cheat on their spouse with me. I find that very low to be honest. And no one I like would be ok with it at all. Besides I cant fall in love with someone who’s already involved cause I'm too proud to settle for being someone’s “other woman”. It’s either me only or I’m not interested.

18. What is your least favorite thing to do that you did today?
going anywhere on rainy days. And I have to go to a meeting today even though the weather is atrocious and makes me feel like hibernating in my room all day.

I’m not tagging anyone as I’m so not in the mood. If you wanna do it. Do it.

I changed my layout yesterday. It's kind of lame but my lj needed a change. Only problem is I'm kind of blanking on what to do for my userinfo. i lost pretty much all my graphics and so far only recovered a fraction of them due inability to access my dead laptop's HD. I'm more sad about the graphics my friends custom made for me though since i can get alot of them off the comm again but some i cant get to since the links are dead or entry's now locked. -_- *sigh*
