The moon is looking at me through my bedroom window, it's very round and bright and pretty. I feel restless right now, I don't want to go to bed, but I also feel frustrated, because I'd like to, I don't know, laugh and talk to somebody... but I don't want to think about it because it will make me feel lonely as the moon up in the sky, and I want to be in a good mood!
I finished Around 40
last night. I enjoyed it. It was not amazing, but I liked that it dealt with serious problems without trying to make a joke out of it. *cough*Hotaru no hikari*cough* If I could have wished for one thing, it would have been for more chemistry between the two leads. The romance was cute (and, I believe, pretty much "standard") but it's not like it's impossible even for a j-drama to add some passion and intensity to the cute scenes! (Thinking of Arata Iura's love confession in Mitsu no aji
still gives me goosebumps, after all these months!) But for some reason, I forgot to think about that whenever Naohito Fujiki smiled...
I watched the first episode of Shibatora
today. I'm not sure what to think about it. It wasn't uninteresting, but a bit silly (I wonder if it's based on manga?), and nothing really "wow" about it. There was a scene where a gang was beating up the main character and a girl, and I found myself wishing for Yankumi to come and teach those guys a lesson... but she did not come, because this was not Gokusen
, but luckily, the main character's friend and his friends came to the rescue. Good enough, I guess, ha ha! I wonder if this is interesting enough to keep watching? Naohito Fujiki's character is kind of hot...
...but if that's what I want, I think Control
is better. I watched the first episode of that, too. Here, we have a police woman who gets transferred after having been shot, and she has to work with this psychology professor who is going to help the police with their cases. He solves every case, obviously (at least judging from the first ep), by observing things and people, because that's what guys like him do on TV. The other police officers don't appreciate this intruder too much (obviously) but the woman has to try to get along with him because it's her job, and I'll bet they're friends before the last episode. So, I think this can be enjoyable, if the cases are interesting.
If I were a deeper, more sofisticated person, I would perhaps make my choices based on directors or writers but you know what? I don't care... don't want to care... don't have the energy to think like that. It's just fun the way it is.
Now it's time to say goodnight to the moon and go to sleep.
P.S. For those of you who feel that you don't know me anymore: THIS
is totally hot, too! There's nothing like a picture of Ava Gardner to
erase all Japanese men from my mind.
P.P.S. Somebody, tell me to stay away from tumblr and go to bed already! The tag for this gif
says "I like your face", I agree!!
