"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau

Usually I don't go to J&R
's Clearance Outlet because there really aren't any good selections for a good price, unless they have their 99Â¢ CD sale (Lifehouse and Our Lady Peace last time), but I bought the Zatoichi
DVDs for $9.99. It was unwrapped, but there weren't any heavy scratches on the cover and the discs were in perfect condition. Two movies for the price of one! Suck on that, everybody else. ...Though now I have two copies of Sonatine
and I have Quentin Tarantino presenting the film... didn't he present Hero
, too? Too bad I saw it two years ago, and bought it for $5.95, QT. Well... at least it's Quentin Tarantino and not Mischa Barton or something. Wow, I haven't typed this much about myself since the second entry. Maybe I'll talk about how stupid War & Beauty
(HK drama) was next time! The possibilities are endless.

Wow money's still comin' in. Just got $100 yesterday; this year is probably the record: about $465. (I lost count. Plus I spent a Jackson or something.)
Bought John Mayer for $2.99, and Eminem and Jay-Z for $10.99 each. Also I'm seeing a new serial, but I keep missing the English title!!!!!!!!!! It's fairly interesting. Plus one of the main character's name sounds like pork bone (joo gawt).
Edit: Oh-ho! So it's called Strike At Heart, see, and it's about a clique, hear? Only it's a martial arts clique, see...

Hah finally some open-mouth kissin' on a CJK TV serial! More specifically, C. Even more specific, HK. Now I can stop the years of ragging on them for only hugging intensely when in their Western counterparts they would be necking like mad. Now J and K needs to get on board, although I may just be watching the wrong ones (for J at least). Hehe. They were like ORNORORNORORN. 'Twas hi-larious.
, but their mouths were like

I've been missing real TV, not reality TV, but since I don't have any money or rather, don't want to spend it, I'm relegated to borrowing (actually my mom borrowed it) stuff I don't exactly want to see... like melodramatic dubbed Korean TV serials about crying and families. Beautiful Days, Mei Hao Ri Zi, May Ho Yut Jee, but what is it in Korean? Hm... ::ponders thoughtfully for no reason::

The idea of 220+ foreign dignitaries within a ten-mile radius of myself brings warm feelings to my heart. And my pants.
My mom's new show is "The Herbalist's Manual." Lollerskates.
Edit: Uh also I saw part of the hearing for Judge John Roberts. He's articulate but beats around the bush.
