Sex, deception and Taiwanese vs. Japanese.

The following is the same color as my background for obvious reasons.

The History channel over the weekend had four hours on the history of sex and an hour on the history of prostitution. I just finished watching all of it last night. I was amazed at what I was being told. The Catholic and Christian church thinking prostitution is ok since it will keep men from being gay? Nuns and priest being able to marry for 600 years before the Catholic Church doesn’t allow it, causing a lot of problems and conflicts for those who are married? At one point in time the church decided that having the woman on top was considered sodomy? What in the... The knowledge of how long both churches accepted married men, priests, etc. to go out and have sex with prostitutes just so they won’t turn gay is just mind boggling to me. I mean for two churches to say one thing, but to do another. See why I quit being a Christian? This crap happens all the time. You can’t just follow some of the rules; you’re supposed to follow ALL of them. Since I think some of them are stupid I quit. These men of the church are supposed to uphold the Bible and what is written and yet for fear of more of their priests turning gay they allow women to sell their bodies for a fair price? That’s right I said more. It seems the priesthood had a very high rate of gay men. <_< It was also interesting to see how other countries dealt with sex, fidelity and prostitution. They were saying in Japan how brothels used to be where a lot of business deals were done and I laugh. A guy I used to know who owned a company is Taiwan used to have to do business deals in brothels a lot. It was expected that whatever the customer wanted he would buy. Granted things might have changed in 8 years, but I doubt it’s changed much.

I was also surprised to find out that prostitution is illegal in 49 states. I knew it was legal in Nevada, but to find out that was the only state kind of shocked me. I mean prostitution is a big business. Considering porn is legal why not prostitution? Honestly is there that much of a difference? I can’t figure out why one thing is ok while another isn’t. Here we are a country with a debt and a huge amount of money passing hands that’s not being taxed and regulated. I say make it legal like the porn industry. Also did you know that when the church was deciding on who was a prostitute they always based it on how many men the women slept with? There was always a disagreement about the amount sometimes ranging from 3 to 1,000 men. If a woman (or man in some countries) received money was never a factor if a woman was a prostitute or not.

So what’s the deception? I found out last night I’ve been fed a lie by my MOM. All my life she had told me that she gave me the dark meat because that’s the BEST meat. I find out the other day that oh no her reason was that the white meat is her favorite... <_< She says that it’s worked out for the best and there’s nothing wrong since I love dark meat, but of course I do. I grew up believing that it’s the most flavorful and tasty meat for over 20 years. Now since I still believe it and my taste buds have been trained that way I find the white meat dry and flavorless. <_< My boyfriend is happy though since he hates dark meat so he thanked her! I wonder what else she’s lied to me about...

I’ve watched a couple of episodes of MG, Taiwanese version of HYD, and I must say they did a good job. Of course Vic Zhou is the only good looking guy out of the four, but beggars can’t be choosers and maybe my expectations are too high and Taiwan doesn’t produce “pretty” boys like Japan does. (Japan does a damn good job at it too! XD) They have a problem with people being poor like I knew they would, but her room is much more bare then in HYD. She’s not a wimp like in HYD. It’s more like the manga, his house is a lot more impressive, etc. etc. It’s amazing what a change subtitles can bring to a series! XD I am over all very pleased with this version...even if the guys aren’t great looking. I’m a bit confused though since in the beginning the guy with glasses, I’m guessing he’s supposed to be Nishikado Soujiro, is going out with a girl who has a job at a pool bar. NONE of the guys would ever go out with someone who worked, Makino Tsukushi excluded. Is anyone else confused about why he’s wearing glasses? If you can’t tell I don’t like the F4 that much, but I am happy to see Vic play such a different character then in Mars. The differences between Rui (Lei) and Rei(Chen Ling) are huge and to see him be able to pull it off so well is refreshing.

Also for anyone who’s seen Dazed and Confused, another movie I like, can you see the resemblance of Mitch Kramer (acted by Wiley Wiggins) as the other F4 member? I started laughing SO hard! I mean even some of his behavior was like Mitch Kramer and how closely they look alike... Wiley Wiggins doppelganger is Asian!! XD

Psychos, houses and mother-in-laws who can be considered psycho.

(This was written yesterday, forgot to upload it.) I think everyone should have a favorite psycho. If you’ve read or watched enough you’re bound to come across at least one you really like. As I was watching Mars I was so excited by Fan Tong Dao since who ever acted as him did an amazingly good job. Fan Tong Dao has to be one of my favorite psychotic characters I’ve ever read from a book or manga. I’m not sure why since he’s not an especially deep sort of character. He doesn’t have a huge back story to go along with him or anything, he’s just wonderfully crazy. He’s manipulative. He’s willing to kill to get what he wants. He believes he’s right and refuses to accept anything different and once again willing to make himself right. There’s one part on Mars where he’s manipulating his new shrink by crying. It was perfectly acted out and all I could do was laugh. So do you have a favorite psycho?

The close it comes time to move the more excited I am to move. This will be the first time really living on my own and since it’s something new it’s a novelty still. I’m sure the “fun and new” factor will wear off very quickly. My boyfriend has moved before and he’s not even slightly excited about the prospect of being able to buy a house or condo. In fact his response when I said because of his new job there shouldn’t be much of a reason for us not to buy a house was, “As long as I get my computer upgrade.” Yeah that’s right...computer upgrade. I guess when you’re used to apartments you don’t care if you live in a house. His mom is planning on buying real estate where want to move and offered to rent us the house. Suuuuure and while we’re at it lemme use a rusty saw to take off my right arm slowly, it would feel about the same. <_< Needless to say I’m not a big fan of his mom. She never cared about him until he moved and since then he’s her favorite. /rolls eyes That and knowing we’d have to let her drop by...BLARG! At least right now we can use work and such as an excuse, we owe her nothing. If we were renting from her at the same price as we are from my mom the tide would turn and not in our favor.

His mom also suggested we find a roommate. Yeah, me living with someone I hardly know in an apartment I’d rather not be living in so things would be cheaper. When he asked me what I thought while she was on the phone I couldn’t help, but start to laugh so hard I fell off my computer chair. Hell will freeze over before I live with someone I hardly know. Just like hell will freeze over before I move into a less then acceptable apartment or house. My boyfriend calls me a princess, and that’s partly true since I am one. Blame my mommy, I know I do. XD It’s not all her fault though. Whenever we visited and had to stay at his mom’s apartment I hated it. The walls were too thin and I disliked people walking above me. It’s annoying and I have no idea how people can deal with that. <_< All I know is that starting Feb. I will need to start filling out prequalification loan forms to see how large of a loan we can get. Then I need to start shopping to see if anything I like in that price range. At most I hope to not live in an apartment more then 6 months, we’ll see though. It really just depends on what’s for sale, how good my credit is by then, etc. /crosses fingers.

Song quote: Not sure why I picked Rise, I like the song mainly because it sounds so great in Russian and it fits perfectly with Ghost in the Shell: SAC. I like this part of the song the best though. Yoko Kanno is a genius!!

Edit: For those unsure of why my mom’s to blame for my “princess” behavior this morning was a perfect example. I had an appointment with the DMV at 9 so when I didn’t leave to work at a normal time, we live in a duplex with her next to us, she got worried and came down to see if I needed to be taken care of. I told her I just had an appointment and then she offered to make me lunch to take to work since there was time. I said sure, I mean who passes on free food?! O_o She said she’d make some turkey salad and I gave her a red onion to put in it and away she went to go make me some lunch. Now I’m thinking she’d just put some in a container and that would be my lunch. She comes down with a paper lunch bag filled. I look inside and behold I find a turkey salad sandwich, a small bag of chips and some yummy cookies. As I’m saying thanks you can just see this light bulb pop up in her mind as she says, “Oh I forgot to bring a soda, what kind do you want?” That’s right because making me lunch isn’t good enough without a soda... It took me about 5 minutes to reassure her I have sodas at work and not to worry as she then starts to wonder if she gave me enough and if maybe I should get an afternoon snack too. Thus I am the princess I am today.

Edit2: How depressing, I just read on a site that you shouldn’t buy anything big if you plan on buying a house soon. This means I have to wait for a new car until after we buy a house! :( Their example was that someone who makes 5K a month (yeah suuuure I do...) and has a 400 dollar car payment can lose out on like 55K for a loan! 55 grand!! While the Mazda doesn’t have the lowest payment and won’t be paid off the quickest it does have the much lower loan amount. (Thank God for a broken “cuddle” system and having a car for a week before it was realized.) Maybe if I get enough money to make it worth while I’ll pay that car off. I want to dump it anyways so why not if it helps me get a nicer house?

I also found out from a co-worker since the house I buy is a stepping stone I need to think what’s good to resell and not what I need since I won’t be there forever. It’s wiser to spend a little more for a 3 bedroom house that will be easier to resell when the time comes then finding a 2 bedroom house and having a harder time down the road. She used to work for real estate people so I learn a lot talking to her. What loans I can get, to remember about the other things like home owners insurance when I’m told the loan price since it isn’t included, etc. I love my mom, but she’s of no use when it comes to this. She hasn’t bought a house in 23 years and the prices of what her payment will be for a new one are shocking to her since the last time she bought a house the average was 80-100 grand!
