Have I ever told you guys about my superpower? It is the greatest, and by "the greatest" I mean the most disgusting affliction known to mankind. Let me elaborate.

Listen, I will eat a lot of things. Among the people you know, I am very likely at least in the top three of the most adventurous eaters. Fish eyes, pig's ears, every innard available -- they all go happily down my gullet. However, I do draw the line at insects. I mean, all the power in the world to you if you have no problem with them, but I do. I find them repulsive in every way. Which is probably why they manage to worm their way into my food with amazing frequency. ([livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani will tell you the look on my face when I found, on separate occasions, a caterpillar in my ramen and a beetle in my spinach salad.)

A few days ago, I was out buying cleaning supplies for washing my walls (for repainting; omg, the walls look so good now - pictures forthcoming, once I properly unpack all my worldly crap) and for my troubles, I thought I'd treat myself to a taro milk tea. A lovely plan, and foiled incontrovertibly by the fact that IT CAME WITH A COCKROACH IN IT.

Let's let that sink in. A COCKROACH.

Sarea and I are heading down to LA for a little bit (to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, YESSSS) and meet up with [livejournal.com profile] jade_okelani, who is now reconsidering eating meals with us (me). Lol. It is, sadly, my curse and my cross to bear.

Sarea and I are back from SDCC; we have many stories to tell. Unfortunately, my laptop is on the fritz (well, it's either the laptop, my ISP, or some unholy combination of both, and soon I will have no hair left to pull out), so that post plus all the pictures (and a short report from our 1D concert) are going to have to wait. There's just a lot of formatting to get through that is way too cumbersome to do on my thankfully functional but wee tablet.

Hope you are all well!! ♥

If you heard something explode today, don't worry, it was only my ovaries. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] gealach_ros we can now hear (over and over again) Rupert Young SIIING. Oh man, boys with beautiful voices -- if there's a quicker way to my heart, I have no idea what it could be. RUPERRRT. ♥

Massive effort yesterday to SPRING-CLEAN ALL THE THINGS before Chinese New Year rolls around (it's on Thursday). Dusted, vacuumed, did two loads of laundry, changed the sheets, cleaned the bathroom. Check me out!

*flail*

Hiii, everybody! I am back from hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] accordingtomel. We clocked many, many hours of television, avoided the outdoors, played nerdy games, ate a lot, had a two-woman Merlin finale party, and squeed/ranted/laughed until it hurt. To sum up: it was awesome.

Merlin finale talk; wee spoilers )

Relatedly, Julian Murphy has made himself out to be a sexist, awful, ignorant man. I fart in your general direction, sir. Pathetic.

Unrelatedly, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elle_blessing for the lovely v-gift! *hugs*

Tradition dictates that I get sick every time I get back after a trip, so naturally I am now having to blow my nose every five minutes. Still, better now than during the visit, eh? How have you all been? I haven't been able to check the f-list diligently, so if you have exciting things to share, point me in the right direction!

Hi, kids! Guess who has two thumbs, four bruises and took a spectacular spill first thing this morning at work? It's me!

There was water on the floor, and I didn't see it, and down I went. Kerplunk. Various parts of my body hurt and have turned lovely colours, but thankfully it wasn't nearly as bad as it could've been, and the thing that irks me the most is that my glasses got scratched. Gar. I think I can live with it, though. I don't want to get new glasses; I love the ones I have.

Oh, and then sometime in the afternoon, the general manager also fell down near that same spot. It be cursed!
