Hey, it’s Friday again and here I am with my supposedly weekly meme (but in reality it’s an occasional post on a Friday depending on my willingness availability to sit down and write something.) Are you guys gearing up for gimik this weekend? If you do, then you’re lucky! I might end up staying in bed and reward myself with a long, long sleep and a much-needed rest free from allergens. Hmmm… A long, long sleep is I think the title of the book I’m scheduled to review this week. Unfortunately, my brain cells isn’t working properly right now which I think is the result of sleep deprivation and nonstop cough so the review may not be posted as scheduled.
I’m a bit testy for the past weeks. I’m easily bored and nothing—not even drop-dead gorgeous men—can get my interest for a long period of time. I usually have this when I get burned out of something I habitually do. Sigh. Now that I have the spare time to catch up on my reading, writing and watching, here I am spacing out and would rather lay in bed thinking of nothing, doing nothing and (pause, thinks for a while but nothing comes up) nothing else!
Anyway, being bored won’t keep me from buying things. And that’s the problem. I should steer clear from DVDs! (Good thing, it isn’t books, if so; I’ll end up broken-hearted over my credit card bill.) Ugh. My TBW (watch) list is piling up because of my impulsive buying. I bought 6 DVDs since the start of the month and I only finished one. 1:6. Damn ratio.
(All 3 Seasons: Anime)
This is my first Josei anime watch since Honey and Clover. I might follow it up with Shounen animes or rewatch some of the Shoujo animes I have for review. I’m still thinking if I’ll watch the Japanese Live Action Drama but I did watch the movie version (Nodame Cantabile: Finale).
Here are the other DVDs I bought and are still on my TBW list.
Scent of a Woman
I don’t really know if I’ll still watch this because the ending sucks.
I watched 2 episodes but I’m getting bored with the heroine’s acting. And some of the cast too.
I watched half of the first episode. I might completely watch it next month.
Sugar and Spice
I bought this Japanese movie out of whim. I saw 1/4 of it and its kindda boring and slow-paced.
I thought this was a Live Action version of an anime. It turns out that it’s a Korean movie I never knew existed. I finally remembered that the anime was XXXholic. Stupid me! So I wasted money for something I never really intended to buy/watch. But I don’t have choice, do I? Lesson learned: check the internet first before buying any Asian movies.
I’m not reading regular books yet. I’m on an indefinite leave from reading books. Hahaha. I was burned out from reading continuous for the past two months. And since I’m not into “real” books this month I’m back to manga!
I don’t have anything on my read list yet but I’m looking for Shounen & Josei mangas (preferably completed) to read for the upcoming days especially now that I have to stay at home and rest because of my allergic cough. It’s as bad as asthma. Sh*t.
That’s all for today! Any recommendations?
