In Other News...

So, I e-mailed the school in Japan to check up on my housing info, seeing as I haven't had a word from anyone about the family I'm supposed to be staying with. The school e-mailed me back and said that the agency who is in charge of placing me in a homestay said it would be another two weeks, but if they do not do it in that time, Jogakkan College will have an apartment ready and waiting for me. What with my OCD nature, this should be a major nerve-grater, but I'm so beyond caring at this point, that they could put me up in a classroom. Even so, I suppose we'll know my fate in another two weeks.

Also, I just finished watching Oishii Proposal with mom and I can report that it was very cute, if not a bit uncharacteristic for a Japanese drama. To me, it had more of a Korean drama feel in that it was light, there weren't many subplots and it never got too dire. Also, it had the typical Korean scenario of rich boy/poor girl and the annoying rich fiancee with whom a marriage would gaurantee saving said boy's father's company, and without a marriage they will be in the poor house, thus making the boy face the decision of true love vs. practicality. I am a huge fan of Koide Keisuke who is the leading man in this, so of course I did like it. He seemed more believable as a guy in love because of the little actions he did as opposed to the typical love-struck act you get in either K or Jdramas. My only gripe was that the end was a bit lackluster, but what are you going to do. That too smacked of a Kdrama.

And my third point of interest is that I made a video! It's been forever since I put my rusty video editing skills to work, but I was driving down the road the other day, listening to a song and the idea for this vid just popped into my head. If you haven't seen the movie Honey and Clover, I would encourage you to watch it (dramacrazy.net may have it). It's a gorgeous movie that delves deeper than just throwing a love triangle up on the screen, and it's a different feel than the drama version. Also, it has Sakurai Sho and Iseya in it, so it's a win. Anyway, enough rambling. Talk to you cats later!
(Myspace has joined the ranks of all video hosting sites that hate me, so I'm just going to have to put up a download link and you'll just have to believe me that it's worth downloading to at least watch. From now on, I'm just going to start naming my vids 'gobledygook3004_2' to get past the hawks!)
