Springy Snow

Good Afternoon my dear readers!! So, this is the customary (what I'm trying to make customary) post after the newest chapter of Skip Beat! I'll just start of with this, and then move on. So the latest chapter was released on the 5th, and (as always) I felt it was too short. The latest chapter is 172, and is the continuation of the Dark Moon Season Finale party! Although it was a shorter chapter (at least if felt like it), there actually a surprising event. The person that helped Kyoko get dressed up for the party, ended up asking to go out with him! O_O Of course Kyoko was her typical naive self, so she played it off as a joke. The person (I can't remember his name for the life of me. Sumimasen!) asked her again, but made it clear he was serious. Ren heard (to quote The Big Bang Theory, "Damn his Vulcan hearing!") and of course led Kyoko away. He led her away with the reasoning of her having to do her interview. We also find out that Ren has requested to not be interviewed first, but fourth, which means he gets interviewed either right before or right after Kyoko! While they were waiting, Ren tells Kyoko he's changed his spot and led her away early to keep her from doing something that could damage LME's reputation. LME, for those who don't know, is the company that Kyoko and Ren have both signed contracts with. Ren also tells Kyoko that if she has issues, to come and talk to him about it first. Since I don't know if you guys have read it or not, he is referring to the fact that this other person found out about Kyoko's "reason" to not come to the party and took care of it. Kyoko of course (in her head) doesn't really know how to answer since the real reason she didn't want to attend the party was because of Ren himself. It ended on an interesting point, with Kyoko asking Ren if it was something she needed to do no matter what. April 5th is so long away, which is when the next chapter is released! I can't wait!!

 This is from a couple chapters ago, but I love LME's president!

What else has happened since my last post? Oh, yesterday I finally got my car towed to the mechanic. He said he was pretty booked for the few days, but hopefully my car will be looked at and fixed before the end of next week. Next week is Spring Break, so I was hoping that I would get the chance to go up to my Dad's house during the last few days. Unfortunately, my Dad's birthday is the 20th, and this year it's the Sunday right before school starts again. The only thing that would keep me from going up there (besides the fact my car is out of commission right now) is if it plans to snow. March is the snowiest month in Colorado and most Spring Breaks have huge snow storms. I'm just worried that if a storm does come in, I'll be stuck up at my Dad's house. Although, I would love to be stuck up there because I love going to my Dad's house! The downside would be losing those hours at work, and I kind of need to get paid my full hours. I guess we'll see!

At the bus stop a few days ago when it was snowing!

This past weekend, my good friend Billy had her birthday party! It was a lot of fun. I actually made her cakes, and wanted to do really well because it was the first time she was being made a home-made one! What makes it odd is that someone in her family owned or worked in a bakery; something like that. But, anyways, she wanted a confetti cake and a chocolate cake. I made both, the confetti cake being a white cake that has sprinkles added to the batter. She also wanted me to decorate it. I didn't do anything special for the chocolate cake, but I made a rainbow and heart on the confetti one, as well as the customary "Happy Birthday" message. I didn't try any of the chocolate cake (due my general dislike of chocolate cake, especially with chocolate icing), but there was some leftovers of the confetti cake so I had a couple pieces of that. It turned out better than I though, but for me the confetti added a weird flavor and texture to the cake. Billy was also her odd self as usual, not having us bring presents for her, but her buy presents for everyone else. Last year (right before I went to Japan), we ate at Old Chicago's and she brought party favors. She was going to do that this year, but opted out because I had never played White Elephant before. She ended up buying over 30 presents and doing White Elephant for her birthday. In other words, she bought presents for everyone else. It's a little backwards, but then again Billy is an odd one herself. Anyways, because I had never played before, I got to go first! The first bag I picked had a stuffed duck. Everyone was giving me a look like "That sucks." Honestly though, I was really happy with it. Not only do I love stuffed animals, but Teukie's animal is a duck! It was perfect! I ended up keeping it (no body else wanted it)! There were a few presents left over, so in the end I also ended up with some sidewalk chalk and those huge sunglasses that are like made for an elephant! We also played Pictionary ROFLMAO!

Amateur cake decorating skillz FTW!

I guess the last thing that I really have to rant about, is a fandom thing, so for those of you that care to ignore my fangirl sections, now would be a good time to skip to the end. I'm not planning on ranting for too long because the issue has been talked a lot about lately and kindly been asked to be put to rest. I just thought I would share, with those that might not be as active in the fanverse, that there were some incidents with Super Junior since the last time I posted. First of all, they boys got into another car accident when leaving Shanghai. Thankfully, no one was hurt (again)! The more major issue that happened though, was a fan threw a sign on the stage during SS3 Shanghai encore concert and hit Heechul in the face. It cut him and he left the stage bleeding. He has reassured fans that he is fine, but of course a lot of petals and ELFs freaked out. From what I know, not too many people hated on the poor girl. She has publicly apologized. I actually can't comprehend what she's feeling. In her message she stated how Heechul is her bias, it was her first time going to their concert, and how she feels like she has done wrong to so many people that she caused an accident to him. Anyways, the reason for my rant is that many ELFs as well as the members have asked that fans try to put safety first for everybody. It's an unfortunate accident (I'm quite positive it wasn't done on purpose) that just shows that our boys (or girls depending on your fandom) ARE human and easily hurt just as we are. I am among the many ELFs that believe that we need to try to keep our boys as safe as possible, and am urging others to please think of their safety. It has come to the attention of many that SS3 has seen a lot of accidents and injuries or almost injuries come to our boys. I just want everyone to stay safe and healthy.

As always, the customary gif!! Until I write again (hopefully near the end of March)!!
