Just to settle into the story, here's the low down on my job:

I work at Smoke's Poutinerie, a super laid back 80's style Canadian poutine chain. It's probably the most slack job someone could find. I work night shifts on the weekends, meaning 97% of my customers are drunk. Also meaning, I can pretty much act any way I want, and no one will find it odd.

In our store, we have a chalkboard for customers to draw/write on. Most nights, if I get the chance, I write いらっしゃいませ〜♥ Tonight, I served a customer, and then went out to write it. My supervisor pretended like he could read it, and then the customer went, "Ah, Japanese." He didn't sound Japanese when he spoke, but hey, I ain't judging.

We started talking about how I'm learning Japanese, but he stuck to speaking English and that was fine with me. The conversation continued, and I asked where he was from. He said Tokyo, but actually Chiba, and started trying to explain what Chiba was. I started to laugh and reassured him that I knew where it was, and asked if he knew the band Arashi. When he said yes, I said that one of the members, Aiba, was from Chiba and so I knew where it was.

And then, my world shook.

He told me he used to go to junior high with Aiba, that they were friends. That they were friends. That they were friends.

I'm sorry, but. Did I just meet Aiba's junior high friend? WHAT. WHAT THE FLIPPING FUCK.

He went on to say that Aiba was heavily bullied for being in Johnny's at that age, and it really upset him. But that after graduation, when Arashi started to become more popular, he stopped caring about them because he was super fucking successful.

Said that they would always say hi when they met at the gas station, when he would catch Aiba gassing up his Mercedes.

This guy, this beautiful angel, said that he lived near Aiba's family restaurant, so he always saw him around.

I'M LIKE. WHAT IS LIFE. WHAT IS THIS THING YOU CALL LIVING.

I've barely listened/watched to anything Arashi since September, I don't really think of them much, they don't hold as important a place in my life anymore. Doesn't mean I didn't flip my shit when the guy left.

I ran back into the kitchen, and proceeded to freak out. My co-workers know me as a normal, silly if not civilized human being. Tonight, that image was shattered.

I was hopping up and down, slapping my hand on the wall, and literally grabbed my chest and said, "My tits are uncalm." I had a stack of menus in my hand, and just ended up smacking them off the door frame over and over until I could breathe again. I was rolling my body along the wall, and I don't even care if I smudged the cleaning guide off the whiteboard.

I met Aiba Masaki's childhood friend.

SO I AM WRITING FIC AGAIN. ALAS, I HAVE AN IDEA WITH ACTUAL PLOT. EVEN IF. I AM TOTALLY STUCK ON SAID PLOT RIGHT NOW.

What I'm asking of my lovely little flist are songs. Something sort of tragic, but beautiful. Understated, yet full of emotion. Something on the slower side that pull at your heart strings for one reason or another.

I NEED A SOUNDTRACK TO WRITE FIC. IT'S JUST. IT'S JUST HOW IT WORKS WITH ME, IF IT WORKS AT ALL.

I've decided to try quitting smoking again. I've been a smoker for over two years now, and while it doesn't sound like a very long time, it's nearly impossible to give up.

After talking with my future roommate Ruth, she decided that every time I have a cigarette, she burns a photo of Arashi.

This is what she tweeted me an hour ago:
AzUKu2pCIAAqg-g

IT WORKS SO FAR. Cause every time I think of having a cigarette, I just picture Ohno burning D:

honeyporridge and quartered said they would join in on the burning/ripping of photos, while eufry and rikke_leonhart will give me rewards.

I HAVE AN ARMY OF SUPPORT. I CAN DO THIS. I CAN QUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT \o/


Ruth also sent me this, and I nearly died laughing XD

TODAY I PUT IN MY TWO WEEKS NOTICE AT KFC. This way, I'll have two weeks-ish to myself before my Toronto trip, then another week after to just CHILL BY MY-FUCKING-SELF. WOOHOO.

And in commemoration (or just because), I'm making a KFC photo spam post.

I have a habit of taking photos of myself at work. Like, a lot. I send some to Laura, some to Rikke, but mostly it just amuses myself :3

Laura suggested I make an lj post out of them, and TADA!

Title: Apple to My Pie
Pairing(s): Nino/Ohno
Rating: G
Disclaimer: There may be an overload of sweetness D:
Word count: 2522
Summary: Nino grew up in London, England. When he searches for a job, he winds up working at a Japanese bakery named TOKIO.
Author's Notes: Originally posted here for the ninoexchange this year, and I need to thank the brilliant and bouncy rikke_leonhart for helping me flail this tiny idea into actual fic! MUCH LOVE FOR THE LADY. Besides that, uh. It's fairly sugary sweet (and not just because they're in a bakery, but that never helps) and Tokio is sort of just going on with their shenanigans in the background, and, that's it! Enjoy :Dv

You don't need to speak Japanese to do the dishes, right?Collapse )

OKAY SO YES HELLO.

I did end up finishing Nino Exchange, yes. Because I know all of you were dying to find out how I did.

/silence

ANYHOW. I've been practising my singing a lot more than usual lately. This is because my friend Ruth and I (roommate come September WOO) are going to do an open mic at our uni's bar. Me singing, and her playing the guitar (which she has yet to learn lmao). So. I've been working on my voice a lot.

And so. This happened.



CASE MAYFIELD'S THE TITLE. I think it's such a beautiful song, oh my god ♥

But yes, comments and criticisms welcomed, because I would like to improve! (But yes, when I go off-key, I'm completely aware that I'm doing so. I also have the bad habit of releasing my breath too easily, and, I sometimes run out at the end of the note :|).



it was also payday CAN I GET AN AMEN

Hello all ♥

I redid my entire layout/icons (the icons a few weeks back) and I'm loving it. The layout I had was my baby and I must've used it for two years or something crazy like that. But, this one is adorable and feels summery, in a way ♥

I have a shiny new iphone 4S by the way. And I adore it. It's so much wonderful, tucked inside a sleek white contraption. I'm addicted to it, already. His name is Enomoto.

LESS THAN TWO MONTHS BEFORE I MEET bubblymaddness AND untilwerestars IN TORONTO. I'M STILL SO EXCITED, OH MY WORD.

Speaking of words, I should be doing my ninoexchange fic right now. I'm struggling through it, like a dog in the marsh. But I'm trying.

Happy Father's Day, everyone ♥ (I bought my dad Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 and I'm so excited for us to read it together ♥)




(I haven't had to edit my layout in so long that I'm forgetting things. How do I make it so that when I click on my entries, it goes to the default lj layout, and not my personal one?)
