meissa: (life is good)
Since my family's definition of a holiday is the complete opposite of mine, I spent most of the day outside. As an explanation, holidays for me equals sleeping in until I get hungry, eating, and sleeping some more. For them, it usually involves waking me up at an ungodly hour (earlier than when I have to work, even!) and dragging me outdoors.

Since it was raining most of the weekend, however, my father's plans for us to go swimming were cancelled (fortunately, because though I love swimming, I abhor swimming in the nearby resorts which are usually overrun with children). But though today dawned bright and sunny, it was my mother's plans we followed and we wound up going to the mall, where I immediately commenced a shopping spree and I just have to ask retailers this:

WHY IN GOD'S NAME ARE YOUR SIZES SO FUCKING INCONSISTENT?!

I don't get it. Last year, my size would range from small to large, depending on the clothing store. Now? It ranges from EXTRA SMALL to EXTRA LARGE! WTF? Oh, and when shopping from the same boutique, I bought three blouses: one was medium, one was large, and one was extra large. Again, this was the same boutique!

I really miss the days when I was a medium everywhere. What is going on? How can one store's extra small be another's extra large? I DON'T UNDERSTAND. Oh, while we're at it--

WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE THE DEFAULT DESIGN FOR WOMEN'S BLOUSES DO NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT GIRLS HAVE BREASTS?

Unless I'm flat as a washboard -- or have a dent in my chest, maybe -- I am apparently going to have the hardest time buying clothes. There is something wrong going on here! I'm not even very...er...boobular?

I'm sorry if this should not be a surprise, but for the past four years I only bought clothes from catalogues (I'm still a medium in those) or out of the country (which use the number sizes, so idk).

Anyway, that aside. I went to see In Time after my shopping spree and let me just say: IT IS A MOVIE I WILL WILLINGLY WATCH THREE TIMES. ON MUTE. BECAUSE WHO CARES ABOUT PLOT WITH THAT MUCH PRETTY? I mean, Justin Timberlake -- pfft, I don't care about you. BUT MATT BOMER. ALEX PRETTYFER PETTYFER. CILLIAN MURPHY. VINCENT KARTHEISER, HELLO. And Amanda Seyfried is always pretty!

Can I just say that I find it sad that Justin outlived everyone that was prettier than him, though?

The plot was kind of hilarious, though. There were several gaping plot holes and the clock was too much of a Deus Ex Machina at times. And how do you even transfer time just by clasping hands, idk. But who cares? Pretty!

Now, however, I feel about to sink into a food coma because I had too many carbs today (Japanese for lunch, Chinese for dinner). So that's all I have to say about today. Which actually, seems like a lot now. And I have to be up early tomorrow for a seminar, so blargh. I hope I can stay awake through it.

I realize I haven't been around much and haven't actually been reading anybody's Dreamwidth/Livejournal entries due to work being insane and my spare time being sucked up by Tumblr, which was unexpected, but... (If you're curious, you can see my "Daimira is still somewhat sane" Tumblr over here. I have another one for crazy fangirling also linked there, but I'm warning you, it really IS full of crazy fangirling...)

Lately, I haven't been doing much writing or artsy things because I don't have a lot of free time, and I probably won't until around July or so. Anything I write or make these days are usually for someone, though I've got WIPs I'm writing for my own benefit stacked up to the ceiling. My free time is spent playing a lot of Etrian Odyssey II and watching movies and TV (but not actually at the movies or on TV). And eating. Going out for two hour dinners and then getting home at 10 pm, after which I just pass out.

My life is so exciting lately.

This is not so much a rant but just me rolling my eyes at my wasteful family. ;____;

So my father seems to hate it when I play the part of the Electricity Police. But you can't really blame me. I mean, when I came home today, the following things were ALL on: 2 television sets, 1 desktop PC, three electric fans, and the lights were on in 4 (yes, FOUR) rooms!  And this is keeping mind that before I got home, THERE WERE ONLY TWO OF THEM IN THE HOUSE.

Really, I'm the one paying all the utility bills here.  ;___; I still remember one time, during the summer, when the electric bill went up to SIX THOUSAND PESOS because they had their airconditioner on 24/7.  I was especially bitter about paying for that because I don't even have an airconditioner in my room.  I was putting up with a really crappy electric fan -- which eventually broke, to my great joy, as it gave me an excuse to move one of the fans in the living room to mine.

If my Dad whines when he has to drive me around out of his way because my trips use up precious gasoline, I have the right whine about their electricity use, right? Right!

Anyway, this was tonight's dinner
Asian food trip
Well-represented: Japan, China, and Korea!
(Takoyaki, dumplings, and...er... garlic potatoes from a Korean restaurant?)
