Do you want fries with that?

I decided to take action after reading Sayumi’s tag and went to Starbuck’s website where I wrote in detail what happened, but without the name calling of course. It says someone will e-mail me back, but so far no one has. We’ll see how long they take to get back to me. :)

So what’s the title about? Well I went to McDonalds for lunch. Yes, yes I know, but their fries!! I don’t know what they do to them, but every few days a month I just get this huge craving for their fries. I placed my order and when I get to the window where they give me my food and I asked for more ketchup. They put in like 3 packets and I use like 6-7, but always ask for more for the “just in case we’re out” at work one day. I ask for of everything when I’m bringing it back to work. I then use what I want and put the extra in our frig for everyone else to feel free to use. :) I take the bag and ask, “Can I please have a lot of ketchup?” Well the girl tells me, “There’s some in the bag.” I told her I knew and that I still wanted more. She gives me 3 more. I then look at her and at her three packets and say, “Can I please have 3 more?” Once again I felt like Winnie the Pooh, but this time when Rabbit has him for lunch and he’s pouring out honey. She says, “You know, there is MORE in the bag.” The first thought through my mind is, “No shit Sherlock and I still want more.” I instead say, “Yes I know, but I use a lot of ketchup and would like 3 more packets...please.” Well then I get to work and figured out why she was so rude, besides the chance of her just having a crap disposition. They gave me like a small size instead of my large! I was devastated. The whole reason for me driving there was practically gone! :( I ended up calling the McDonalds and told the manager who said to give them his name and they would give me a free large fry next time I came. I didn’t tell him about the attitude given when asking for ketchup though since the girl should be given the benefit of the doubt that she’s not just some flaming, rude peon that can’t be nice to a customer and that she was just surprised someone would want that much for so few fries. :) I’ll be going back tomorrow since I’m still craving their fries. I swear they do something to make them so addicting!

I had my PT appointment this morning and found out something. I was right! I got to see the Jun look a-like this morning! I think he must be there in the morning for a few hours or something. Today he smiled at me and it was soooo like the smile Jun does as Momo in Kimi wa Petto! I soooo need to take a pic of him on Friday, if he’s there, for you guys! XD I’m not so sure if he looks exactly like Jun anymore, but either way he’s a good looking for an Asian guy. (Please don’t hurt me for saying that. It’s not my fault good looking Asian guys are far and few between!) XD He’s totally right up Akane’s alley though with his tall slender frame and good looks.

My hour at the PT was brutal though. My PT has given me 2 new back exercises and showed me how to do crunches on my body ball I bought for my physical therapy. I was shown by my other PT how to do them lying down, but it doesn’t really work me out anymore. Well the first one he showed me freaked me out. I have this INTENSE fear of falling, and I mean seriously bad. (When my boyfriend and I first moved in together I had a very bad habit of stealing covers. One threat of pushing me off the bed the next time I did it solved that issue and I haven’t done it since! XD At the time we didn’t have a box spring since that was in storage 300 miles away so it was just our mattress on a king sized blanket on the floor.) My chiro. has a hard time with me when working out my neck because even though I’m laying down on the table thingy he’s lifting up my head which he can drop at any given moment...onto the table 2 inches below my head. He wouldn’t though, he’s very nice, but he could do it so he always has to tell me to relax like 3 times before I’ll finally relax enough for him. :) Any who, seeing how bad my fear of falling was told me not to worry he knew another one I could do. The one he showed me is great! It’s simple, easy and I know will work out great since I didn’t have a sense of falling once! He also had me work on my knee for the last 10 minutes. I am sooooo going to be feeling it tomorrow morning!

My goal is to be able to do Cosplay by next spring! I plan on working out a little when I get home since I didn’t do it for very long while I was there. I wonder if I can get a refund on my AbLounge... It’s been a while so probably not. Oh well maybe I’ll sell it to someone really cheap to recoup some money back! XD

Random thoughts.

Hello! This is my first entry for this blog. Since Sept. I've been blogging on my site and using this is very new. I'm used to having to make php files. It's also the reason why I'm using someone's format since I gave up trying to customize how I wanted it. It's close enough, has purple...and well it has purple. :) For those of you who know where my actual blog is I'm still going to be updating there as well until I get my banner up here.


_______________________________________________________

I wonder how Jared, my old FedEx guy, is doing. Granted the temp filler is nice enough and everything, but he’s still a bit “stiff”. I finally got our DHL guy to open up and be friendlier. I swear breaking overnight guys in is hard as hell! It takes me weeks and weeks to get them to be more personable. I guess this is one of the reasons why I hate it when they switch them around. It takes me two weeks to get used to the change and then another 2-3 weeks for me to get them to open up and be friendlier to me. :)

I found out that Antique Bakery is indeed only 4 volumes long. This means no more stories that include Chikage and Ono! /cry It’s so unfair. The last volume was basically about the owner and the assistant. I could give a flip about them...I want more Chikage and Ono! They are just so funny together! XD The ending was ok...I guess. It semi-felt like an ending, but not really. I mean there are still so many questions left unanswered like will Ono ever corrupt Chikage? Will the owner ever find some girl to marry? Will Ono ever get completely over his fear of girls and if so will his “homo-demon” quality then become a “bi-demon” quality like the owner fears? I mean if that happens what about Chikage? Poor silly, naïve and slow Chikage...

I have come to realize that something is almost better then nothing when it comes to buying a house. At first I thought I’d just wait until I could buy one I really wanted. Now, if I’m able to afford it when the time comes next year, that thought seems a bit silly. After all everyone must start somewhere. While I refuse to live anywhere that one would consider the ghetto (You know the area where you wonder how you got lost there and pray you don’t run out of gas.) I know it won’t be in a wonderful neighborhood. I’d settle of an ok/good one at this point. It’s all about moving up. You buy, fix the house up when you can afford it, live in it for 5-8 years and when the market is right and you can make enough for a down payment on another house you sell or use that as a rental. :) The trouble though is the fact that houses in ok neighborhoods still sell for a lot of money. Very depressing, but maybe it will be different in April and the market will be better for people like myself.

Through the “Perverts Club” that our wonderful staffy Kitty has started I’ve come to realize I’m pretty focused unlike most of the people in the club. I was there to make comments and such, but when we did out whole voting thing and my name was listed I figured I might as well join. XD Any ways, it seems most aren’t really focused. The person who comes to my mind is Airi was semi-focused between her obsession of YamaPi and Tegoshi, but it turns out I was wrong. Progressively she has shown that she’d kidnap the whole boy band, among other celebrities. XD I mean the info she has on them... @_@ I knew fangirls were intense and that I failed as one since I know jack about Jun, but my lord...

My last and longest thought is about ecchi humor, go figure. What makes some ecchi moments funny as hell and others just seem out of place or give off the completely inappropriate feeling? Let’s take Chobits for example. There’s a whole episode about Chii and how she needs panties and the experience poor Hideki has in trying to buy them. The episode is funny as hell because of the misunderstanding, well to me anyways, and the outcome when Chii herself finally buys some. If you compare it to DearS’ episode on basically the same thing except DearS had a few more people at the store and swap out a persocon for an alien. While I find this series very funny (Like Ren and her obsession with Melon pan, although I don’t blame her...yummm) I dislike the perverted teacher in the episode. To me she’s way over the top. I know she is supposed to be funny, but instead she always makes me fast forward the scene since I’ve already seen it completely once and have learned my lesson.

So what makes one thing funny and another thing not? I’m not sure since even in Golden Boy I found some things funny as hell like in episode one where he’s a temp in a computer programming company with only women and they are telling him about A, B and C base. His mind then translates that to the terms of 1st, 2nd and 3rd base in dating and then goes crazy. To me it was funny as hell as I watched him chase after the girls in the office yelling, “C base! C base! I want to get to C base!” Later though they had a whole thing with him and the toilet...in fact in every episode there’s him with a stupid toilet. Do most Japanese people have a toilet/bathroom fetish or something? Then there are some ecchi jokes that are over the top and still funny. A lot of the jokes in GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) are over the top and very suggestive, but they are so funny! I laughed hard at each and every one of the jokes, even the “lame” ones when Onizuka was making sand figures to cheer up Toroko. :)

So what decides if a series can pull off an ecchi joke and what doesn’t? Does it have to do with the characters? Is it the series that decides if it can pull off ecchi jokes? Does a shaky plot line mean ecchi jokes won’t be taken as well? Does it have to do with the originality of the joke? And does anyone really laugh at the toilet scenes when watching Golden Boy??
