Hello, random narcissism! And, I have a computer problem..  
I feel like this has been a week of thought. I had a rather rough week, actually. I don't know when it will get better, but I hope that it does! I almost cancelled going to Tenipuri Festa last night, but I went after all. Although the INTENSE screaming really got to me. It was so loud that my head started pounding right away, and by the end of the 3 1/2 hour concert (!!), I could barely hear. I thought the screams were loud at Tenimyu.. but they were NOTHING compared to this! I wonder that all of the glass in the hall didn't break.

I'm being totally serious. Oh. My. God. I mean, really. It was THAT loud. I'm sure that it was the loudest thing that has ever happened at Budoukan theater. That theater is huge and houses all kinds of artists. The speakers were great, but the screams of the fangirls outstripped the music. By at least twice as much, I swear.

I MEAN, REALLY!! DO YOU HAVE TO SCREAM THAT LOUDLY!! More power to you guys, you fangirls out there. I love you all. But next time I will be sure to bring some earplugs. ToT

So, the other day, my editor at Asahi Weekly sent me a CD full of pictures that she'd taken last year, from our various jobs. So, I chose a few of my favorites to post! It's complete and utter narcissim, only. (By the way, looking at them points out that I have lost some weight (it's so hard to tell sometimes), and my hair is better when it's darker. I wonder why I ever thought that lighter was better.... :/ I could never be a blonde!!

So.. narcissism ahoy!!

These are from when we went to see Muscle Musical. :D

Yummy pastry! I have no idea what was inside, though! Obviously it was a while ago.. before it started getting really cold. Which seems like years ago! ^^;;

I really was inspired to build more muscles when I saw the show... I wonder if I am any stronger now than I was then?!

Me with some of the cast members =^-^=

By the way, Azusa-san put some pictures of us on her blog, too, here: http://ameblo.jp/mmazusao/entry-10678122772.html ^^

OMG SO SO SO SO SCARY! (but fun! :3)

At Disney on Ice ^^

"Act like Mickey is your boyfriend." Sorry, Minnie! ^^;; (and Mako)

At Jenya's seiyuu training course =^^=

Haha, I'm so tall!

With the designer for Hello Hitty, Yamaguchi Yuko ^^

And at Hooters Japan, last month XD

Any random thoughts? ^o^;

BTW.. My main computer seems to be dying.. It's kind of like a laptop without the screen part (as in, it's tiny), so I can't open it up. But anyways, I leave it on 24/7 to download things, and have it hooked up to my TV. Anyways, yesterday when I tried to use it, it was EXTREMELY SLOW. It really can't do anything without freezing/taking forever. Things that it was fine doing the night before. I've restarted 800 times. So I think that one of the memory sticks died or something, but can't open it up to disconnect one. Any ideas, anyone? An idea that doesn't involve money (it was given to me by a friend, so there is no warranty).

Sorry I can't help you with the IT problem as I don't know much about it. You should bring earplugs (or use gum) next time you go to a concert!

You're really tall and skinny! Your legs are long and you look great in short skirts and knee-high socks/boots since they accentuate your height (OK I swear I'm not a perv or anything). You don't need to lose weight!

How tall are you again? (in cm please XD) You look REALLY tall, even compared to the other foreigners in your photos XD
And PLEASE tell me that most of those photos were taken in summer and not recently, because how can you wear a mini-skirt and short sleeve shirts when it's so cold? ;o;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 23rd, 2011 12:11 pm (UTC)
These were taken in Summer and fall, except for the Hooters ones, which were taken in December. But even now I only wear miniskirts and shorts because I don't have pants. I can't buy them here and they are so unstylish for the most part! Hopefully winter is over soon!

Are you sure it doesn't have a virus or some sort of malware on it? It's really easy to pick those sorts of things up. I'd definitely run some of the clean up programs to see if you have spyware clogging things up and slowing things down.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 23rd, 2011 12:55 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure thats not it, since I have really good virus software, and it happened while I was sleeping. But I'm definitely going to run a thorough check when I have a chance just in case.

OMG! i am soo jealous that you got to meet the designer for HK!!! that must have been soo cool! that pic of you in the Hooter's uniform is very amusing XD i can't imagine how cold you were wearing that uniform in December. ^_^;;

have you ever heard of COOL Japan? it's a tv show on NHK that comes on once a week where they invite a whole bunch of foreigners on and talk about chosen topics of Japanese culture. i'd LOVE to see you on there! it says on the site that they're looking for people who have been in Japan for less than a year, so that might not apply to you, but it wouldn't hurt to try filling out one of their forms because i've seen returning foreigners on the show all the time during different seasons. hope you get time to check it out! :D
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 23rd, 2011 03:35 pm (UTC)
I've heard of that show, but I've never seen it. I will have to set the tvr (^_^)

I have been here more than 6 years, and I don't think that my Japanese is good enough, but after I go farther toward becoming a mangaka, then maybe I will apply.

Maybe try a checkdisk/defrag? With checkdisk it will tell you that it'll start next time you reboot. If it's really your hard disk better to find out while you can still save the files.

I must say that I absolutely LOVE your hair. And that polkadot skirt in one of your pictures is adorable, too. :)

haha the hooter girls lack hooters completely! they should be called rasins XD

Awesome pictures!

It sucks about your laptop. They can be very testy (I'm a computer tech). The best way to go about with no money is to simply run a registry cleaner and a malware scanner. Like CCleaner (registry) and Malwarebytes (scanner), are two I recommend. Delete any programs that are unwanted and you might want to get an external harddrive to free any space you can on your computer. Make sure your recycle bin is also empty because when it gets too full it can seriously bog down your system. Let me know if you need any help :) I'm more than happy to assist.

You get to meet so many cool people!

I had something like that happen to my computer once - ironically, when I sent it for repairs at Sony's center. It came back and it was taking three minutes to boot up and stuff like that. Ugh. In that case I ended up having to do a system reset so you could keep that in mind as a last resort thing to try.
athenazandrite on January 23rd, 2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
It's a pc right? Did you try defragging? Sometimes that will help a computer out.

You might also see what programs are running and taking them out of startup or closing some of them down to see if that speeds it up.
athenazandrite on January 23rd, 2011 05:54 pm (UTC)
oh and the virus scan is a good idea. Nav has some good ones I'll tell her to send you links. I think Search and Destroy and Avast were good.

And on that note, I always use mozilla's Firefox with the NoScript option on to block out bad ads and stuff. It blocks out flash too though so sometimes you have to remember to temporarily allow new pages or permanantly allow pages you know you trust.
