Soooooooo tiiiiiiiiiiired!!!  
Lately, I've been feeling really, really tired. Yesterday, I felt really nauseous on top of that, so I cancelled all of my plans and just stayed home to rest. I kept falling asleep, yet I tried to read something and even with all of my naps, still couldn't stay awake later than 10 pm. -_-;; I hate wasting my weekends!! But I seem to have really needed it. I think that work and working out on top of the other things that I want to do are taking a really big toll on my body. I hope that it gets better, though, since I don't plan to stop doing anything.

Today I have to go to a concert, which is all-standing. I feel a lot better today, but I wonder if I might die during the show. I had a dream that it was all sitting, which was a little disappointing (since I want to choose where to stand), but good seeing as how my butt planted in a seat sounds more appealing than standing....... but maaa ne. I will try my best!!! ^o^ If only I could quit my job, seeing as how it's causing me so much stress.. but not yet. Saa saa. -_-;; I want to say that I'm getting into better health by working out (and I eat well and drink a lot of water too), but I think that it's just putting too much stress suddenly on my body. But as I can't give up my job and it's the only thing I'd be willing to give up, I hope that my body adjusts itself.

Friday night, after working out with Melissa (though I couldn't do much, I was too tired..), we hit up Shinjuku looking for more mamegomas! But, alas, they seem to be a scarce breed. I think that we went into more than 10 arcades too! But she's addicted to Chii's sweet home, and won us both Chii coin purses out of the machine, which is what the pictures are. ^^

Well...! I have some time this morning, so I'm going to be creative (and try to stay relaxed) while I can! I can't believe that the weekend's almost over already!

PS: The other day, a little kid asked me, "In America, are Ultraman's eyes blue?" XD;;; I told him that, the truth is, we don't have Ultraman in America, and he was shocked! =D But we do have pokemon, so he was quickly appeased. =^-^=

I wonder what they owuld do if you told them we don't have Doraemon.
Man, I wish I had a dokodemodoa... ^^ Or an itsudemodoa would be cool too! I could help me with my homework!!! And the cool memory pan! Man, I wish we had Doraemon. ^^;;;;; Yep, I'm a kid's show nerd.

I want a docodemodoor too!!! Though I would be happy with a timespinner. Anything to give me more time for the things I want and less time for the stuff that doesn't matter!

you don't have ultraman???? (never really thought about that when I was there)

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 1st, 2006 05:17 am (UTC)
No... I mean, it's really rare for any kind of foreign language show to make it to American tv at all. We have a tiny bit of anime, but it's mostly recent and not usually mainstream (Pokemon being an obvious exception though it is heavily edited and dubbed in english).

The only japanese television program that I can remember being broadcast on mainstream tv was Power Rangers, but even that was actually a mixup of a bunch of different shows, with all of the scenes that weren't fight sequences actually refilmed with a bunch of American actors. (^^;;)
angeangelamori on October 1st, 2006 05:39 am (UTC)
you mean they actually kept the fight scenes Japanese? >_>???

i thought it was wierd coz you have godzilla and all, and that would imply familiarity with the ultraman type of show. heh.

we had ultraman here when I was growing up. Right next to cartoons from the States, so it's wierd to me. ^_^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 1st, 2006 05:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's really weird. The fight scenes would be from the japanese show, but the rest of the stuff is new. Of course, they dubbed it over with an english track, so we never knew the difference. The villians too, since they didn't have to move their mouths, were usually from the japanese show. I'm never sure why we just didn't make our own in that case. :x

America is biased against foreign-language tv shows. Growing up, I've never seen a single show other than Power Rangers (and according to a friend, Power Rangers was more than one completely different sentai show all spliced together) that wasn't english-language originally. Some of the smaller channels play things, but not mainstream. I think it's still pretty much that way now, only on very very rare occasions there are anime like pokemon on major networks (but dubbed and with most/all references to a foreign language removed, of course)

Yeah, well, when the Power Rangers came out, I thought it was a purely American show, inspired by the Japanese counterpart. Since all the actors were American, I figured every frame was also American.

This sounds like some big conspiracy plot.. hahaha~ It's wierd!

But I can totally see why there're few international shows on American TV. The media industry is so strong, it makes sense. >_> Same way you don't get much American TV in Japan?
