[Japan]: Oh, rainy Sundays <3  
Good evening (or whatever time it is where you live)!

I just realized that it's already the end of JUNE!! J.U.N.E.!!! I mean .... I just came here, right? No! Already 4 months passed since then and I know I repeat myself by saying that time definitely runs too fast! *sigh*
Rainy season is still at its best here and so it's another rainy Sunday, but that's okay! I enjoy being lazy today, which basically means I use me free time to study as much Japanese as I can and watch a little bit of German stuff as well as Japanese stuff.
Not to mention that I had to clean up my apartment and all, too XDDD That's why rainy days are good :D - from time to time that is!

It's still very strange for me that even though it's raining so much, it's still soooo damn humid! Usually I'm a person who doesn't sweat at all, but the Japanese climate is really something I tell you! At least for me as someone who usually lives in Germany. Our summers and warm days are limited and when it gets too humid, we have a nice, heavy thunder and lightning spectacle with tons of rain and after that, nice FRESH air!!! Not so here in Japan *melts*
I'm not complaining, I'm just telling you that this kind of weather is new to me and I think it's interesting. I might suffer in August, though XD ... I don't want to imagine how it is when it's REALLY hot here ;)

Of course "thanks" to the heat there are tons of mosquitos here and everywhere (T_____T) ...... most of the time I manage to keep them out of my apartment, but as soon as you got somewhere outside, they'll eat you alive (T___T)
Now .... I come from a very rural area of Germany and am .... at least I thought so ... used to various kinds of mosquitos .... but what's going on .... or rather crawling and flying around here is really .... AMAZING!! Just ewww!!!
They do have quite a lot of mosquitos that seem to be dangerous, too! To mention only one: スズメバチ (>____>'') ......

"It can't always rain."


Hana Yori Dango love ^-^ )

As for TEH loud bitch: Has a long story finally come to an end?
After my last entry my boss once again phoned the apartment management. They just laughed it off, so my boss stayed firm and tried to convince them, that it's not funny anymore.
They finally took action after that. It seems that up until then they didn't even inform her parents!!! So no wonder she didn't react at all! I think it was mainly a communication problem, but I'm not sure.
Anyway the thing is that one of her friends who is always joining her parties lives exactly one floor above, so of course she wouldn't complain about the noise as she herself is part of it! All the more both of them said that they turned down the volume after 12am that night, HAHA! As if!!!
And now the best of all!!!!! They talked to TEH bitch directly, too, and she started to cry and said she was afraid when I was banging against the wall. UHHHM ... yes, ..... of COURSE!! Then why the hell was she never reacting to my banging and why the hell were all of them laughing when they heard me banging against the wall?
I guess she wanted to play the innocent Japanese girl that's dissed by TEH EVIL FOREIGNER that has nothing better to do than banging against her wall in the middle of the night *headshakes* .... HOW BITCHY CAN A BITCH BE???? Seriously, there is something wrong with that girl.
Anyway .... thing is that the apartment next to her (the one on the other side) is empty (so no wonder nobody was complaining!) .... and they asked her to move there! It's only next door, but 1 apartment farther away from me! With 1 more wall and 1 apartment in between us she can't her my banging anymore (*giga-rofl*) and I shouldn't be able to hear her shit anymore.
Now .... ever since then she has been super-quiet and I thought if it's going to be like that, she can stay! It seems she finally got it! ...... but then she moved out and next door this weekend! Of course I'm happy about that, BUT at the same time totally afraid of who will move in next door after her. Of course it won't be right away, but what if it's another university student? This appartment complex seems to be full of university students! What if it's one of her friends? What if that person is even louder than her (if that's even possible ....)?
I think a second time the apartment management won't help me anymore and I'll be the one who has to move out then. *sigh* .... So for the time being the problem is solved, but I live in .... fear of who might move in next (T__________T) ..... maaah, doesn't help if I worry now anyway ...

Woah!~ Holy cow!! (o___O'')

It's really been a while since I last shared something! Well as some of you know, I'm really busy and in only a few days I'll be back in Japan ... so I guess this is kind of a ... farewell gift from me to you?! XDDD
Ahem~ ... as I had not much time (again) I only did some coloring. I had tons of fun making these icons, especially the Akihabara@Deep ones (guess too much Toma stuff, but who cares? *drools*) (^-^')

Hope you like them!~

Okay,

so this is probably the most random icon entry I´ve ever made
Reason: As you know I´m currently pretty busy. Most of these icons were lying around FOREVER and I just can´t find the time to finish this batch. That´s why I´ve decided to just upload this ..... incomplete icon batch - I hope you like it nevertheless.
And that´s also why there are so many random icons (^^'')

And please remember to CREDIT if you snag something! I have my username included in the files, so there´s NO reason for not knowing where it came from!
And if I ever catch those stupid people that are just randomly uploading other people´s icons in a zip-file, I´ll kill them for sure!! (T__T)

Enjoy~

This is going to be a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong entry with a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot of hot and smexy and cute pics XDDDD
I apologize beforehand! m(_ _)m

So here we go.


1) Tokio Hotel:
I´m absolutely NOT a Tokio Hotel fan, but I heard today that they recorded one of their songs not only in English, but also in JAPANESE!!! ZOMG WTF????
I soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo wanna hear that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone knows where I might have a chance to listen to that? I don´t need the WHOLE thing, I just wanna hear a little bit and then .. prolly laugh my ass off!!!! XDDDD;;

2) Fucking heat in Germany:
Oi!! It´s so damn hot right now. Too hot. I mean .. it´s not that I don´t begrudge the nice weather to other people. But I don´t think we need over 37° (99F) for that???? (-____-'') .....
FUCK OFF HEAT I CAN´T CONCENTRATE THIS WAY!!!! DXXXX

3) I finished watching Bambino!



Note: The pictures do not contain any major spoilers, you can look at them even if you haven´t watched the series yet!
Feel free to overread my balbbering though!~ XD

The best role MatsuJun ever had??? )



4) I started to watch ........... (no not a newer drama, but) .... Ikebukuro West Gate Park (池袋ウエストゲートパーク).





Note: I´ve only watched episode1 so far, so there will be no spoilers!!! ^-^b
But I guess most of you have watched that one already? XD

This is the ZOMG OMG WTF HE SHE IT IS THEREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! DRAMA XD )


That´s all o____o;

[Icons]: 132 Icons of Nobuta, Bambi, Tiger&Dragon, HYD, J Cuties XD ...  
Hey there!!!

I made icons again!
Well to make a long story short I just wanted to make icons out of that stupid face of MatsuJun while he was trying to laugh (in Bambino) XDDD ... then I tought I might also make icons out of the few Tiger & Dragon caps I have, because I haven´t seen any T&D icons around (do you know where I can find some? :/ because mine aren´t great at all T-T)

Err~ ... then I still had some random icons lying around .... then I discovered naked Okada some days ago ... and yeah y´know? ... XD ... that´s it I guess XDDDD

BUHUUUuuu~ but again no Nagase Tomoya icons (aside from the T&D ones of course! XD)

Don´t expect too much! I only colored most of them and that´s it! :/ .... *does not have enough time for more* (X___x) <~ *lazy*

I hope you still like at least some of them *bows*

Enjoy!~

Bene, Bambino!!! - Random Blabbering about Bambino and Tiger & Dragon~  
Hey minna!~

damn it´s so hot in Germany right now. What´s the weather like where you are?

WARNING: This entry contains VEEEEEEEEEEEEERY funny pictures!!! I suggest you swallow all your food and don´t drink, drive or do s.th. dangerous while you look at them!! XDDDD


I´ve finally finished Tiger & Dragon.
I´ve already written about my first impressions about this drama here. Back then I wasn´t that fond of that series, but some of you might already have noticed that this fact has changed! (^-^;)

Don´t worry there won´t be any spoilers ahead! I just want to blabber out some random things ^-^;



Well, I really liked this series at the end! And not only because of Nagase and Okada XDDD .. but this was definitely a plus.
Btw. I think I REALLY came to like Okada through this jdrama! I already noticed him in Kisarazu Cat´s Eye .... but after this series he has my FULL attention! He´s pretty hot (*-*)
Err .. anyway: I personally did like this series BETTER than My Boss, My Hero!!! I don´t know why though and I´m pretty sure most people like MBMH better :)
But Tiger & Dragon is pretty funny as well .... for it has also pretty .... funny yakuza in it! XDDDDD
And hello? Nagase as yakuza, isn´t that good enough?


WARNING: Stupid Yakuza faces ahead! XDDD )


And like I said ... a hundred times .... I WANT TO WATCH BAMBINO ..... so that´s what I do now XDDDDD .... and because I love it so much I´m already @ episode 5 (but only at the beginning XDDD)
KYAAAH!!!!~ MatsuJun is so great in this one *fangirls*
I really like stories like that anyway ... and when it´s about food .... although Lunch Queen had yummier food I guess XDDD ... but not really yummier guys? .. err ... well .. let´s say the guys are yummie in both! XDDDD
Oh and I LOVE Italy like some of you might already have noticed so .... yeah this series is kinda perfect for me! Hehehehe~



This role is perfect for MatsuJun! And it´s kind of good to see him as a "normal" person again (not a rich brat with horrible fashion sense XDDDD) ..... but he´s still a cute dork in this one!!! *lol* *huggles him* <3333

very, very, very light spoiler: Like I discussed with [livejournal.com profile] apsharha MatsuJun seems to get beaten up in EVERY drama he´s in XDDDD ...... no comment!
spoiler end


And why the hell does EACH AND EVERY Arashi member get the name BAMBI in one of their dramas? XDDDDDDD

WARNING: MatsuJun is TRYING to smile!! ALERT ALERT ALEEEEEEEEEEEERT!!!! )



Anyone knows if that building where they made that drama (that Tattoria) is really in Roppongi and if so where it is? :)



And I´m currently reading this manga:



If you´re interested in it, I downloaded it from [livejournal.com profile] adamaru

Hi there!

New record! 264!!!! Icons (>_____>)
I´m sorry!!!! LJ didn´t let me post all in one entry (;___;) ... So I had to split it up *sigh* .... This sucks, I´m sorry! :/

Part 2 can be found here!~

I started off with Aya Ueto, because I just felt like it .... She´s so daaaaaaaaaaaaamn cute! I LOVE her!!!!
Then I sooooo wanted Itou Misaki icons, because I still haven´t made any Densha Otoko icons (;__;) ... because there are no screencaps
She is sooooo gorgeous! I found so many gorgeous pictures of her (*__*) I like her even more now! XD

Then I thought I want some male j icons as well ... that´s why there are also some Jun icons! ^^; ... And then I though if there´s Jun, there should be Mao... but as you can see I´ve only made 3 icons of her. GOMEN NE!!! (>___>)

I hope you like them!
I´ve used a LOT of different colorings and some effects (some icons look like popart or s.th. like that ^^;) ...
Enjoy!~
