* Come Ren, …… say hi *
I made it to 3 posts this October. Yay ! I wasn’t really that busy this past week, though I did pull at least 3 all nighters for Chem . and Physics. Problem is, I really don’t have anything to talk about !……… Unless you want to read a blow by blow account of what I did at work and at school. ? No? Right. I don’t think so. * sigh * Anyways, I did go to a head banger concert last Friday with my sweet 13 year old cuz. Gosh, I thought, is this the extent of my social life? Chaperoning an 8th grader ?
Not only that, we had to pick up a 6 footer first year high school boy and I was like, ” You have a date? A high school boy ? ” Oh, no, no , Tita, he’s just a friend who’s got a ticket to the concert too, but he needs a ride. ” ” Whatever. How come you’re friends with a HS kid. ?” ” We’ve been friends since last year yet. He went to [ insert name of middle school ], too .” Hmmmm……….*ponders* ……. So, as expected, the concert was rowdy and loud, and fun. Yup, I enjoyed it. The concert started at 6 PM and ended at 11 PM . It took that long coz there were 6 bands that played. Oh, and also, one band singer got one water bottle , took a sip, returned the cap, and threw it at the crowd. My cuz caught it, and I thought she’d keep it as a souvenir, but no, she drank from it , too and passed it on to the HS kid, who drank from it and passed it on and so on….. and I was like, freakin’ hell ! ! What if that singer had an infectious disease or something ! Yikes!
Actually, I was supposed to go to a club that night too, with my college pals, but I couldn’t leave the concert and the kids. My friends texted me all night. ” Why aren’t you here yet? ” Are you coming over or not? ” Not. Well, we got home at 11:30. It was too late to go…. to a club, alone, past 12 midnight. So, I decided to just read a manga . Pathetic.
Speaking of which, I just read a horrible manga, even more horrible than that one where the main character kills herself. I read the ending first, and I was like, ” Oooooh, they are together “, so I didn’t bother to read the forum. Big mistake. The “hero” of the story is a first class sadist and the “heroine ” is a masochist. How bad is he ? Well, he doesn’t like the girl’s hairstyle, so he gets a pair of scissors and forcibly cuts the girl’s hair. Just like that. Yeah, that bad. What’s worse is that, while he professes deep love for the girl, he has been banging another girl! ! A manwhore ! What the ! ! !#$%^&*#$%^&* ! ! ! Freak ! What kind of a love story is that ? It ‘s so twisted and perverted ! Geeezuz ! ” Excuse me for a sec , guys, I think I’m gonna jump off a cliff. ”
It was already 2 AM when I finished reading. I was so upset by what I just read I almost hurled my laptop across the room, or myself againts the wall. * ( There, there…..( pats head )…. It’s just a story, Ren. You don’t have to be so emo about it. ” *) I then decided to read another one to erase the negative aura that enveloped me. Never mind the time. I am, after all, the Goddess of Imsomniacs. So, I rummaged through a list of titles and found one . A gem ! ! One of the loveliest, sweetest, fluffiest, cutest romance story I’ve ever read so far. Just a story between two people, without the angst and conflicts that usually accompany their journey to everlasting love. The title is AOI SPICE. This story proves that any author can write a moving love story without the main guy with a GF, or still pining for his ex GF, ex- Gfs and rivals bitching and getting in the way of the protagonists’ relationship, girls seducing the main guy and succeeding, main guy cheating, and all these cliches the writers throw our way to spice up the stories. They’re so gut wrenching. But I guess it can’t be helped. We cannot have cheese all the time, huh.
Here are some scenes of the ending story. By the way, Japanese comics are read from right to left. On these scenes, Ren , the main guy is holding his first ever concert. ( He is a singing idol, while Ageha, the main girl, is an ordinary student he has met at the park while walking his dog.) Meanwhile, Ageha is already at the airport, leaving for England with her parents. She could have stayed behind , but due to misunderstandings, Ren lets her go. But before that, he deliberately hurts her feelings and breaks up with her. Also, his first ever album is titled Ageha, with all the songs composed by him. His last song at the concert is the song Ageha, but he is unable to sing it, and leaves his own concert to rush to the airport to see Ageha. There, he professes his undying love, T.T…… Ageha leaves , just the same , with a promise to come back in 2 years. On the last 2 panels, you can see a small box with an engagement ring in it. And also, Ren has become more famous, but his love never wavers. The end.
* misty eyes* * sniffs* ” Tissue, please. ” Well, that’s how a manga looks like, for those of you who don’t know what a manga is.
I got an email informing me that one reader ” LIKED” one post of mine. I couldn’t remember that I even posted that… about a bargain Calvin Kline purse ? I blogged about that ? It was dated June , 2010, so I guess it was on Windows Live. All my posts there were transferred lock, stock and barrel to WordPress in October , 2010, one year ago today. I want to repost an excerpt of that one here, if I may. I feel nostalgic. Oh, and you know what, I ‘ve never used that purse, and I don’t know where it is. Maybe it’s in the attic.?
