So...after getting lost the first time I tried to find the Nagoya JE shop, I finally made it on the second try with the help of some LJ girls.  It was a pretty small room with tons of girls packed in.  I thought I'd find a whole bunch of pre-teens there and feel all awkward being older but surprisingly, all the fans in there were kinda old.  It's a tiny little shop really.  After still spending about an hour in there, I ended up buying only 13 pictures (may post pics up later).  Ah well.  Anyway, buying pics is pretty easy - you fill out the sheet, line up at the cashier, pay - but how in the world do you buy the other goods there like the posters and stuff?  Do you just line up and ask for them at the cashier?  Write it down on some separate form that I couldn't find? 

Anyway, since my hotel TV doesn't have TBS, I thought I'd have to miss HYD tonight.  So I was enjoying Shinobi on TV when one of the other trainees runs into my room to tell me HYD was on another station!  So after a brief moment at wondering WTF it was doing on another station, I turned on the TV but was only able to catch the last half of HYD . T_T  Totally bummed about it.

Finally made my way over to the magazine section of the konbini.  I've been trying to hard to resist going to that section because once I spotted any mags with our boys, I knew I'd want to snatch it up.  I actually spotted a couple of mags with our boys but alas, I was able to exert some self control and not buy anything.  Not even the Fineboys that had a "special price" on the Feb. issue of only 500 yen.  *sigh* 

Might watch Bokuimo this weekend.  I'd rather spend my time sight seeing Osaka and Kyoto but we'll see what happens at night time.

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May you days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

This year is a green Christmas for me but may your's still be merry and bright.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Pixie lacks tact...

I just remembered a really funny mIRC convo I had a looong time ago.

Me:  I know nothing about anyone in NEWS except Yamapi...everyone else looks the same to me.
Her:  Everyone always says that...NEWS isn't just Yamapi, ya know
Me:  Oh I know.  It's not like I purposely focus only on him...he's just the only one I know.  That's all.
Her:  I like Koyama the most.
Me:  Actually, there is this one guy that totally stands out to me cuz I think he looks like a cross-eyed frog.  You know, the one in N's Aoi.
Her:  That's Koyama.
Me:  . . .
*runs aways

Hehehe.  I LOL every time I think about my stupidity.  At least I started to pay attention to who people were in other JE groups!

Frustration

I leave for Japan in ONE MONTH and yet, the company still hasn't told me yet where they are placing me.  As of right now, I have no idea where I will be living.

Can you say grr??

I share a love/hate relationship with P A T H..  What is it, you might ask?  Well, PATH is the underground network of shops and tunnels that connect much of downtown Toronto's core.  If you really think about it, PATH is an amazing feat and I'm really proud that my city has it.  On the other hand, it's heck confusing!

See, Toronto streets are laid out much like any other North American city's streets - in a neat grid pattern.  But not PATH.  PATH likes to run up, down, left right, and diagonally.  There were so many times I reached a fork in the road and had to choose between three different paths to turn down!  And you don't have the use of street signs to guide you to your destination.  Oh no...PATH wants you to use the force or something like that to find your way.  That's why, on Friday, when I had to perform some business downtown, I decided to walk the several kilometres between destinations above ground in - 3 degrees celsius weather, rather than attempt to tackle the mess called PATH.  Good concept, bad carrythrough.

Still, I find the notion that I can live a half hour drive from work and still never have to step foot outdoors to reach work very interesting.  For example, if you lived in the condos in North York, chances are that your condo is connected to the subways (No outdoors point #1).  Then, if you work in the downtown core, say the Financial District, you can take PATH from the subway station to your building (No outdoors point #2).  Need to run across the street to deliver something?  No problem!  Avoid traffic and the cold by going PATH (No outdoors point #3).  And if you lived in one of the really good apartments, like Empress Walk, you'd have no need to conduct your life anywhere else cuz everything is in your condo!  Movie theatre, restaurants, coffe shops, grocery store, electronic store, clothing shops....everything is located in your condo! (No outdoors point #4).  The out-of-doors are overrated. =P

Anyway, lot of blabbering, not a lot of sense.  Just wanted to get my thoughts down about PATH.  And the following site has lots of info.

Things to sell...

Share
kobe
So I think the vast number of things I have to sell have finally outgrown my LJ. Plus, I'm sure there are people here who are kinda 'wtf?' about all the things I have for sale. As a solution, I've created a selling journal (yay! way to follow trends!).

Please stop by and friend babypixie_sells

This is an order. 

That is all.

Reneging on word

In a few days, I'll have another post up with some of the old things reorganized for sale along with a lot of new stuff.  Originally, there was one item that I was planning on selling too but now that I know what it can do, I'm thinking I might wanna keep it for myself!

See, I bought myself a Pikanchi monkey, specifically the female one.  And at first, I thought it was just a doll, but look at what it can do!

See for yourself

So now that I know how cool my monkey is, how can I sell it?  Still...I have a feeling it'll just sit on my chair with the rest of my stuffed animals if I keep it.  What to do??

And so ends one saga...

Last night, I picked up my last giant package from Japan.  Although I stopped hitting the auctions back in August, I didn't have my things sent to me until about a month ago.  And so, Pixie's venture into the world of Japanese auctions finally comes to an end with the last package finally here.  No pictures this time around cuz most of what I bought were just magazines anyway.

I've learned my lesson.  Yahoo Japan auctions combined with deputy auction sites are bad for my bank account's health. T_T

I think I've tried pretty much every deputy auction site out there, excluding Rinkya for the obvious reason that they have a reputation for ripping the biggest whole in your wallet.  I think it would be good to do a review of these sites.  Then maybe other people won't waste their money on service fees like me and spend their money on the actual goods.  Better yet, don't start on the auctions at all.  Seriously.  I got curious today and checked out the auctions and what did I see?  Taiwan and Seoul concert goodies.  It was so hard to not press that bid button.  Haha.

And so...another saga begins as I begin the countdown to my big (temporary) move to Japan. 

T minus 41 days and counting...

Involuntary insomniac

It's a quarter to 5am right now and I can't sleep!  Geez, I think my body is still stuck in the I've-got-a-huge-assignment-due-tomorrow-so-I-must-stay-up-all-night mode even though my last big assignment was due today and I don't have anything until next Monday to worry about.

I can't believe I'm near the end of the term already.  I feel like it just started.  As the years go by, the terms feel shorter and shorter.  I can't believe most of my friends are graduating in 5 months.  It feels so surreal.  I look around my group of friends and I think, "Us, in the work force?  You must be kidding me!"  The guys still love their video games and perverted sex jokes.  The girls...well, there aren't that many of us, so I don't know what kinda generalizations I can make.  All I can say is that we're not ready to grow up!

I'm not ready to grow up.  As my university life draws closer to its end, I'm starting to feel really anxious and uneasy about my future.  I still don't know what I want to do with my life.  I think that's why I chose to apply for co-op Japan even though the job has nothing to do with what I'm studying in school.  I'm stuck in a rut and I just really need a change, something that will jumpstart me back into life.  Right now, I'm really wondering if health studies was the right way to go for me.  Why didn't I go into business as I originally wanted?  I know it's possible to make a 180 and switch now but I'd feel like the last three and a half years I spent in school were such a waste if I did so.

*sigh*  There I go again being all depressed at 5 in the morning.  Whatever.  Time to try to sleep again.
