I start commenting, then I go to my journal to look up something, and then I end up tag-rearranging for an hour. Yup. Chek owt mah funkeh tagz
. Still a work in progress.
Oh: I saw an animated icon of Miro flipping in Bayern gear and my eyes got teary. Fortunately, this was when my eyes were dry and in need of moisture. How nice of my angst to do that.
But seriously. After some comment chat with some of my flist (especially rebelstrike21
-hugs Iris tight-) I have gotten over most of my MiroDrama. It still hurts, but it was his decision and I really felt bad when I heard he was too injured to play in that game against England, and I think he just might still be my favorite player. Might. That’s still a bit muddy.A late equalizer from hosts Hamburg denied Bayern a fourth straight win… Miroslav Klose's opener gave the Bavarian giants the lead after 70 minutes but three minutes from time Mohamed Zidan leveled things up at 1-1. The Egyptian thus became the first man to score against Ottmar Hitzfeld's side this season…
Hey, at least two former Bremen players scored!
Aack…I want to talk about Labor Day Weekend (and Tuesday), but so much happened that…I just start with Saturday. Because blogs foster egocentrism or something.
Saturday was awesome.
First, I got up early to watch Bremen vs. Frankfurt. My early wake-up time also allowed me to get up Mom for work. Really, waking up for streams is kind of improving my life.( thoughts during the match )
Some links: Diego twist-hits the ball
! His Nike T-90 interview
aack I keep on watching the yellow circle forming on the sideAll goals from Bremen-Frankfurt, complete with the Gol TV commentary and THE DANCE!
While I was watching, the Emo!kitty was staring at me from the cushion in the patio.
Afterward, I watched Spike Jonze Spends Saturday with M.I.A.
Seriously, I’ve been playing Kala
over and over on my CD player and in my head.
From that site: Kala is a direct result of globalization, a direct result of mainstream pop, rap and rock, and without those influences it would have never been made; a scary thought indeed - that there might be an up-side to the down-sides of globalization.
Hee Spike Jonze’s voice. My favorite part…talks about preconceptions of Third World, and dances with teddy bear.
Poor Shemko, though. It’s interesting when she also comments about party music just being about shaking your privates, and her loss of connection to “her people” after the first album came out.
After that, I divided my time between: surfing for more M.I.A., playing with Kerri the Cat through the screen door, and eating pancakes. More surfing, then I started exercising, playing Kala
in the background. However, when it got to “Boyz,” I just had to stop and dance…
Then went to Marina to get some stuff my grandma asked for. Also checked out Daiso, the new Japanese discount store they’ve been raving about on aroundfremont
. It’s fantastic! For claraious
-since she’s off to Georgia on Friday- I got a crazy pencil pouch that’s decorated like a cracktastic bag of tortilla chips (Cheese-flavored! Goes great with chips and beer!), as well as a wrist rest. I also bought a small comb, tiny post-its for a friend, and “Children Pinch,” these tiny clothespins decorated as “brother,” “sister,” “dog,” “me.” I won’t take them out of the bag. They’re priceless the way they are right now. Got some tea at Tap Ex and went home.
Watched some more Aqua Teen S3 while cruising for more M.I.A stuff
on the web. Did some homework too. Also saw some exciting bits of Cal vs. Tennessee (yay!) and read Sports J, the Japanese-language weekly periodical I picked up at Daiso. Good reading practice, yes. When I went into my room and turned on the radio, they were playing “Supermassive Black Hole!” So I sang along to that. And because of a Labor Day special on Live 105, it was followed by “Knights of Cydonia.” I sang and tapped and air-strummed to that one. With my radio, I can hear a bit of 105.7 if I touch a certain point of the stereo. So following my Muse sing-alongs, I danced merengue to Elvis Crespo’s “Sonrisa.” Me was happy.
Oh, and later on, on the dorama Furin Kazan
, I ended up calling out to my dad: “Hey! It’s our alien cousin! Gackt!” My friend Mimi said he would be there sometime, playing Rurouni Kenshin or something. Well, I guess it’s the first time he’s shown up…he plays Nagao Kagetora, the son of some lord who sent him to the monastery because Kagetora-san was too vicious. But Kagetora’s brother brought him back to the family because brother was sickly. 4 years later (seriously, 5 years are covered in one episode), brother is dead, Kagetora takes power, and his sister begs him to make her marry their enemy cousin so there will be peace and Kagetora’s like NO. The character’s pretty cool; Gackt’s not the greatest actor, but he’s capable, and has an otherworldly presence that suits Kagetora. Oh, and eye patch-guy (the main character I saw in earlier eps) is still running around, causing trouble with gun shipments and stuff. And there’s more alliance-breaking. No wonder they put character names on screen- so many factions, so little time…
