My Three Dramas

I spent the afternoon watching in rapt fascination as the whole Myung Wol the Spy thing unfolded. Or should I say imploded? Holy crap, it's like a drama! It's like a drama about a drama THAT'S ABOUT A DRAMA. This is getting so meta it's like universes folding in upon themselves.

Let me just say that until Han Ye Seul jetted off to America this afternoon, I was firmly in her corner, because I think the way they shoot dramas is CRAZY. Like, that story making the rounds while City Hunter was airing about Lee Min Ho performing a stunt and then not getting up off the ground because he fell asleep in the aftermath is funny until you actually start to think about how exhausted someone has to be in order for that to happen. No wonder dramas are plagued with so many car accidents. All the drivers are sleep-deprived!

I'm at work and while we're on hiatus from translating The Daily Show, I feel it's my obligation (MY OBLIGATION, I TELL YOU!) to keep up with what's happening on the show so I'll be on top of my game once it starts back up in September. Which is why I watched last night's episode first thing when I came to work. So here's the question: Good employee or BEST. EMPLOYEE. EVER? I think we all know the answer to this.

Of course, it's my last week before my vacation and there's not much happening right now, so I'm feeling particularly slackerish (and not very guilty about it either. If it was busy, I'd work. Since it's not, I'm okay with goofing off. And hey, speaking of goofing off, does anyone play the app Wordfeud? 'Cause so far I'm only playing against one person and I need MOOORE so I can waste even more time at work. I'm jackall if anyone wants to play.)



KDRAMAS! Oh god, I love it so much right now. (Once I've exhausted the good crop again, I'm sure I'll burn out on the mediocre ones in no time, but for right now: LOVE.)

I also started watching Joseon X-Files last night, but I fell asleep 15 minutes in. No reflection on the drama, it was just after midnight and I didn't sleep much the night before. I'm watching it because I've heard positive things, but what I really want right now is a drama that satisfies my id. Like, a totally 'shippy, fun romp with a dash of angst (why hasn't Myong Wol the Spy finished airing again! It looks like it'd fit the bill perfectly!)




I haven't uploaded icons to my Scrapbook for ages. I think I'll do that when I get home. Just as a note: if you're ever interested in any of my icons, just steal them from my userpic page, or you could be in for a looooooong wait.

Stuff. And things. Plus the ever-present drama.

I can haz Harry Potter tickets! For the premiere on Wednesday! (Well, there is the midnight showing on Tuesday night, but sometimes you've just got to admit you're an adult now and work responsibilities have to take priority.)



For the past few weeks I've slowly been migrating three more bookcases to my living room from my bedroom. "Slowly" because it's been hot and/or muggy the whole time, and I haven't exactly been jumping for joy about vacuuming/carrying/shelving books for hours on end. Anyway, my living room now has ten bookcases and my bedroom only has three! Soon to be two! Which means there's tons of space! Which of course means I'm surfing the web in search of new furniture.

My kdrama obsession continues unabated.

In conclusion, can it be Monday Tuesday now so I can see Myung Wol the Spy? *is officially getting excited*
αΩ | Φ | nobody said it was easy

I'm obsessed. Film at eleven.

I'm going to keep talking about City Hunter, because I can't not, if you know what I mean (and I think those of you watching do).

So, I linked this vid on Tumblr yesterday, and it's so brilliant. I never really get excited about vids, but this one? Oh, I've watched it at least 50 times. It's the timing thing, especially at 0:12-0:17 and 0:48-0:54. Those two sequences leave me breathless every single time. Collapse )

I write LJ posts, therefore I am?

My job is so awesome sometimes. Like today, the Daily Show file was late so the translator and I made our own fun by having an extended email conversation using really bad translations of English idioms. (And I'm not even counting the fact that I get paid to watch The Daily Show. Every. Single. Day.)

I am seriously obsessed with City Hunter, checking the Tumblr tag several times a day. I'm even to the point where I rewatch and notice things that make me want to write meta. Meta! About a kdrama! I don't even know, you guys, how come this drama is so GOOD?

Of course, I forget everything I want to say if I don't write it down immediately. Collapse )
