Winter Break 08 so far

This winter break has been an interesting one. For the most part, all I’ve done is stayed home because of the crazy snow.

This is in front of my house..the mailman even has chains on his tires.

It’s probably the first winter break that I’ve gotten bored, but I’ve still managed to keep myself surprisingly busy. I’m a restless person I suppose. Oh and the snow is now gone!’s melting. Instead of snow though..there is winddd…Yesterday for lunch, Janeemebe and I went to downtown to get lunch with Mike and Didi. The wind downtown was absolutely ridiculous… Janeemebe and I were seriousllyyy blown away several times by the wind. We even had to yell to hear each other and were almost attacked by a hat that flew off some guys head.

Lately, my friends, brother and I have been playing a video game called Dokapon; it’s a RPG board game that takes HOURS…we’ve played for several days for hours on end and we’ve only gotten halfway through. It’s quite the malicious game, since it’s all about money, territory and you have so much potential to screw someone over..or at least piss them off. I usually get sleepy first, so I end up retreating to my room around 2-3am..but the others stay up until like 4-5am before leaving my house hahaha… everyone’s addicted. I’ve grown up around video games my entire life, but I don’t think I have the attention span for it…haha. We have all the new game consoles and probably thousands of video games, yet… it’s rare to catch me playing them without people over. It’s all thanks to my brother that we do have all these games…and it’s great for when the friends come over =D

Oh, and for the past week or 2 since winter break started, Whitney has been trying to deliver a gift to me, but due to the snow, both of us were stuck. At last though, she was able to stop by yesterday to deliver the gift and hang out with me and my dogs. If she reads this, thank you so so much. This will be my charm while I’m in DC for my internship.

Lucky Bamboo necklace

I’m a pretty lucky person. To add to these small joys, I was able to meet up with old high school friends just last night. They were my best buddies in middle school and high school, some of them I’ve known way back to 2nd grade even. We all hadn’t gathered together very often since college started ( maybe only 2 times?), and in some cases, I hadn’t seen some of them in 2+ years. Some of us hadn’t even seen each other since leaving high school! It was a pleasant reunion and good to catch up and see how much everyone had grown. Some of it was wayyy too embarassing, but in the end, it felt good to see everyone.

Another time waster

How are you folks doing? Midterms are on the way! It came unbelievably fast too! Can you believe we’re already going on to our second month of 2008?

It snowed last night… I ended up putting off all my homework until the evening so I spent the rest of my night doing homework for all my classes, which includes a midterm paper -___- I got done with everything around midnight. When I turned off my light and headed to my bed, I got a glimpse of some sort of white/pink glow outside my window. At first, I thought it was fog..but it looked a bit too weird to be fog…to my surprise, my whole neighborhood had been completely covered in snow, and I never noticed. I opened my window to take a picture and the snow overwhelmingly covered my face….

Well, here are some things I’ve found browsing the net (or people like dede and kiryogi link me to) and decided to share. If you have time or a curious bone in your body, please continue reading!

When Google Leaves Town

This video is just really silly. It’s basically a bunch of people acting as large internet companies in a party. It sounds weird, but it’s quite entertaining! My favorite is Facebook because it’s so true.

Game Collector

You know, I thought my brother’s collection was pretty insane..but this is way beyond my comprehension…Click the photo to go to the blog entry.

Home Theater

I always thought having a home theater would be awesome, but I definitely never thought of building something like this! Once again, click on the photo to go to the webpage that I got this from. There are a total of 10 home theaters shown. As much as I like them though, I could do without the trekkie stuff o.O

Fact or Fiction?

Does coffee actually stunt growth? Nope! Are carrots good for your eyes? Yup! Here is a small article on some myths that have been dispelled, although I’ll warn you that the other ones aren’t really that interesting… Click >Here<!

Kid Geniuses

A 12 year old boy has been obsessed with medicine since he was young and has memorized medical books. He claims that he was close to finding a cure to cancer! Or there is Budia Singh, who at the age of 3 ran 20miles! He was the youngest marathon runner in 2006, covering 65km. Sounds interesting? Click >Here<

Maid Guy Cafe in Akihabara

Have you guys heard of Maid Cafes? Well, it’s basically a cafe that has waitresses dressed up as maids/butlers as they cater to the otaku culture referring to the customers as master (-sama) and etc in Japan. Weird enough as that sounds…apparently there are now men who cross dress as the maids in a specific cafe.. Click >Here<for details.

Japanese comedian Jinnai Tomonori- Security Camera

This guy is just hilarious to me. There are a bunch of other clips of his acts and they’re all extremely silly! They’re subbed, so enjoy!

3-D Printing

As it says, 3-D printing! I had a chance to use a device that printed things 3-D during high school, so the technology isn’t THAT new, however, it’s still pretty darn awesome. Unfortunately, this video isn’t subbed, but it’s still pretty rad and innovative. There is the video below, but if you want to see other cool advancements in technology, click >Here<

Batsu Game High School

As always, I have to link you guys to these Batsu Games- the show where the comedians at subject to weird situations and can’t laugh or they get hit. Ah…these shows are just awesome. I love the Downtown and their crazy antics.
