Dir En Grey- The Rose Trims Again [Adventures of Stalking Die]


Early morning rushing around trying to get everything ready for Dec 2nd Diru concert. I woke up at 630 and got ready and tried to do a hairstyle which i hadn't tried before and failed and ended up leaving the house with my makeup half finished LOL. We all [elle, rachel, josh, henry, and I] left for seattle at around 8:00am

Henry and I tried to study but it was kind of difficult we all ended up just chatting the entire way. We stopped by at the outlet stores but didn't really find anything of interest. We continued on to seattle and ate at a food court.

We arrived at the venue at 120-2pm but there was no line yet strange.. we went inside to ask about it and apparently there's 150 people ahead of us. 50 of which got tickets with a number on it and 100 of which were in the green room in which some of us couldn't wait because we were under 21 [fucking USA and their legal age thing >.>]

IT was super cold. Apparently some fans spotted Shinya, Toshiya and Die at the market. but they ran back quickly. When Victoria arrived we were talking and catching up and eventually she wanted to go get cheesecake at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory [haha i used to work for them]. While we were walking two fans said "shh... die is over there don't scream, we dont want to scare them away". Victoria was a little offended by their tip because US? be fangirly speak for yourself fat badly faded ugly dyed otaku people.

But anyway viku and i went up to where die was but he was talking on the phone. We pretended to be looking out at the view and took a mini video of him. but this was not the last of our encounters with Die. XD

We got back in line after getting cheesecake and a little later die came out again with the translator nora. but no one else saw up but viku. However, Viku screamed and i was like 0_0what? and she said Die... but by that time a few other fangirls caught on. Viku was DAMMIT we should come up with a nickname for die.... die.. die.... i KNOW cheescake XD hahahahaa die the cheesecake LAWL.

Anyway now there were at least 6 groups of fangirls looking for him. He disappeared into the Pacific Market. But alas, we found them at the first starbucks. We passed right by them trying not to notice. and we were like kya~~ quietly to each other and thought omg, how do we approach them? We turned around and went fawk where did they go? and then the re-appeared again and went into a cheese making place. and we were like should we go in? yes no? no >.> @@;; nervous. Are they still there? They spent a good 10 mins watching cheese! LOL die you are worthy of the cheescake nickname. As we were almost ready go in.. more fangirls appeared but didn't seem to notice them yet. we were like >.>...... they exited when the coast was clear and walked across the street into a narrow section of the Pacific Market

Viku and i came up wiht a game plan. we are going to say die san. and she will put out her picture book and say onegaishimasu. then we are going to ask for a photo. OK YESH.. we walked to wards the narrow section but were still nervous. "ok, its die. hes just a famous person.. no hes just a normal person yes. we can do this. right? yes. "

we walked into the street and "lets pretend we are tourists looking too" [well i am a tourist nyway] but we lost them and went omg fawk.

so we just wandered around a bit longer and we found them AGAIN! and NO fangirls in sight ANYWHERE! 0_0l we were like ok go over the game plan again... 0_<>

Die left the store and walked around the corner and viku was totally like OMG OMG OMG... @@ll and couldnt muster up the courage to go follow. i was like u know what? we should do it. I pushed her around hte corner. and we were walking slowly behind them. and i was like ano.. [too quiet] ano... [still to quiet].. ANO... DIE-SAN?! [i wasnt shouting just like loud enough for them the faintly hear me.]

He and the translator turned around. [inside. KYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!] outside.. die-san.... viku put out an old photo book of theirs and said onegashimasu. and then after that, viku and i and die stared at eachother for like quite awhile. I was trying to ask viku for the camera... but i couldnt speak. he seemd to be waiting for us to ask for photo or something but we were silent. XD and he then he noded, smiled and turned around and kept walking. viku and i stood there for a few more seconds and then went around the corner and SCREAMED and huged eachother. The fruit guy laughed and smiled at us.

We returned to the line and rubed it in those bitchy otaku girls faces and we can totally feel the killer glare vibe and we were totally sucking it up.

Next bit, more of our friends showed up and we just chatted tons while i was freezing soo badly i think the tips of my fingers were turning purple. When it got close to the time i droped off my jacket at the car, and waited for another 45mins with no jacket. that was even more freezing.We finally got in and we got 4-5th row [it was standing live general area but u can tell how close u are to front.] Again waiting for another 5years for them to start. there was an opening band. as they were playing i started to push my way to the front. I made it to the 2nd row by they time they finished.

Dir en Grey started and i was still trying to get to the front, i had one hand on teh bar but as strong and agressive as we are, we had a problem because one of the people up front was a big guy in which we couldnt move, and then so i tried two girls. They were medium build i can take them on if they were fat, but they were not exactly fat as much as just muscle and fat. >.<>

The concert was super stuffy and i wasnt sure how long i could last but i was determined to stay the whole way. Toshiya' was soo handsome! I was standing where he was again. His new hair sucks but since its shaved on one side i can see his face soo clearly. It like he hasnt aged a bit. Kyo's voice was soo enchanting and surreal. I loved it soo much.

by the end of the concert we went to the goods table and I bought a t-shirt and cd so i can get into the signing line. THey only allowed cds to be signed that was soo dumb. I wanted them to sign something older. Kaoru and Die were signing. [Dammit toshiya why are u never there?!] We i saw Die again he smiled extra long and nodded. {it was like a recognition smile like hes like haha the girl from before]

We exited the venue and took a few pictures before we left. and headed back towards vancouver.

As a side note: DAMN seattle is sooooooooo wierd lately. I kept getting creepy looks from soo many black guys and drugged up looking white guys. It was so bad that everytime i looked away to avoid it i ended up looking in a direction where there was another one. it was happening all day and it was starting to piss me off after awhile.. AND apparently THEY DO have kinder surprize. but what was the most surprising thing is that thier "rockets" are called smarties and they dont have those chocolate smarties that we have wierd eh?

Shuuya's Birthday


It just so happens one of the biggest doll meet ups yet in Vancouver happened to land on Shuuya's b-day =3!!! I woke up late unfortunately and was rushing through to get my hair and makeup done right so that we can look good together. I wore a jean skirt, my cecil mcbee top, black boots, scarf and puffed up my hair just a little. When we arrived there were already soooo many dolls! there was easy 30 grand worth of dolls right there. Shuuya kind of stood out cuz he has a custom wig and wasnt dressed casual nor fantasy but street.

We took lots and lots of photos that i have yet to collect and form a photo album. I also bought him a suit at teh doll meet up for his b-day. He kind of looks like Jui from Vidoll like that. We posed all teh jrockerish/"cool" type dolls on teh furniture and funny enough it looked like a band HAHAA. its soo awesome too bad the full group photos are on someone else's camera [mine was being disfuctional]

Stranger In the Mirror

*sigh*... recently I got my hair done and it was blonnnddee~~~ just like it always was in highschool :P. Same color as my good female friends :3

Yea i knew it was a bit bright.. but i still liked it. After all, I've been blonde on and off but mostly on for 4-5 yrs or at least pretty much always a light color ... cept
once buti dyed it lighter in 1 month.

My parents were supportive of my light hair, and given that this is Canada i figured i can keep my hair like this for awhile but.. no.. my workplace doesnt allow blonde hair apparently.. SIGH

Thus I went to to Crystal Mall to buy some hair boxes so that it can be darker but not too dark. SO i went with an Ash color hoping that the ash will take out any orange and ill still keep my hair color light...

MISTAKE my hair turned this funny grey color in some parts and still very much yellowish in others. SOOO again to the mall and this time i couldnt afford to use any higher bleaching contented boxes thus i had to go with a dye without so much peroxide... =_=lll and so... my hair is fucking DARK.... =_=

My manager loved it. Mom said "shannon take off that wig it doesnt look real ". How i feel about it? It doesnt look ugly.... it looks pretty.. but seriously doesnt look like im me at all.. i feel like im starring at a stranger in the mirror....

[People who have known me for awhile, will know how weird this is to have dark hair]

Yesturday

Bag Search at Canadian Border

LOL this was hilarious, i dont get bag searched when i have a katana yet i get bag searched when i have such ordinary things inside XD;; hahah!

So the reason why the searched my luggage was cuz they asked how much i spent and i only spent 20 dollars in stuff bringing back [rest was on food], and like i was carrying a SUPER heavy suitcase. and then the guy was like did u travel alone and i did but a guy whom i ran into during the weekend ended up taking teh same bus but yea i still thought that counts as travelling alone...

and so yea he pulled me over and searched my bag. they didnt say anything but thier faces said soo much!

they asked me whats with the big luggage and i said it was a photoshoot and i had alot of clothes in there. they asked me if it was for bussiness but i said it was just for friends


so they began taking out piece by piece
its like ah-hah! a mysterious bag!! of shoes -_-ll Oh! another bag!~... of shoes.... and ANOTHER BAG!!~~ =D.. of shoes... =_=;

ohh i see ziploc bags!! of makeup.. ah! maybe something is in here!~~ more makeup -_-lll

ok.. so theres a skirt.. maybe stuff hidden inside... clothes.. clothes.. clothes.. SOO MANY FUCKING LAYERS OF CLOTHES 0_0~~~~~~

at the end they were kind laughing at themselves. its like its ridiculous how much clothes and shoes and makeup i had in there XD!~~

たまご

LOL a fact about me most people may not have known is that i really like to eat eggs. Pretty much in any style, sunny side up, easy over, omelete, scrambled, pouched, soft boild, semi hardboiled. raw? [if it's safe] except hard boiled [where the egg yolk is cooked to its max.. and taste like powder -_-]


When i dont feel like eating instant noodles i quite often make eggs. Mom says im teh best at making eggs in our house. hahaha The other day i was making scrambled eggs and i had an extra egg left and decided to play with it. The pan's oil was almost all gone and it was really hot [i cook on high heat with oil NOT butter] so i cracked an egg on it and then spread the white very thinly and slowly peeled it off the pan on top of hte yoak before the top part of the white was cooked. and then slowly rolled it over and off the pan.

The result was a egg pouch XDDD with a raw yolk inside. [my first one looked kinda like a egg sac] I dont really know what to call it. Its kinda like a fried poached egg? It looks something like a egg pizza pop.

well tried it again the next day but only one was successful.. its really hard actually. too much oil results it being to slippery and wont have the whites stick to each other. being too slow results in the white cooking too fast and wont be able to stick to the pan when its fliped over. going too fast would result in the yolk breaking on u. if you break the yolk its over. and too little oil = burning.

So i tried it again today and guess what? 3/5 successful~~ yay~!

.. the plate is messy from the first 2 being messed up but heres a picture

19th b-day


Anyway, My b-day is comming, I wanted to go clubbing at first but.. my b-day is on sunday and yea, no one really clubs on sundays. Anyways last min party not many people showed up but who did was Daiki, Johnny, Elle, Lauren, Erin, Mai, Kj, Clay? and Michelle. VI'X couldnt make it. it was a very odd 19th b-day but drinks were a must. It started off with Yao Yao feeling sick and so he couldnt stay but he came over anyway to bring me a present. I was quite happy for the people who did show up. We started off with pizza and such and then moved on to drinking games as soon as Johnny showed up. We played ring of fire while watching silent hill ahhah.. this is where it gets wierd. Daiki made a rule that people have to jump 3x everytime they have to drink. Ok, next J card Johnny made a rule that everytime that someoen drinks i have to drink. This is death for me hahah. We were playing with shots of voldka. Later Elle saved me by reversing it back on him.

By the end of the night i was hugging the toliet and Johnny had to be sent to the hospital for possible alcohol poisoning. We have always been competitive and always out to get each other but this time we kinda took it too far. Haha he got me but i got him back LAWL anyway everyone went with him except elle who stayed with me after i passed out. I was fine after being knocked out for a couple hrs. We prepared the cakes [Daiki baked me a cheesecake] and waited for the others to arrive back. My mother was not pleased with Johnny's attitude and acutally slapped him. She told me that i can never hang with him again for when it comes to alcoholic parties. My mother had a right to be unhappy, she spent some good money on that cake and really wanted to see me blow out candles but my party was ruined. It was ok though things happen =3

My 19th b-day became a bit of a alcoholic disaster but its alright 20th should be more tame or well I might not even be home for that one.

Let Go! bandshow



The battle of the bands was good but Let go! was even better~ The whole performance I was smiling like mad. It was awesome! Tony had a strawberry frap and winnie, tony, kai and i shared it. Kai had a cold and everyone caught it later and I almost did but i slept it off. After the show I was going to eat with everyone but Shu decided to go home and I had no way to get there and I ended up going home as well.

Battle of the Bands



YESH I managed to get the day off to see VI'X's first performance. I know the 2nd is more important but this is the first one but I'm glad i can make it to both. The Show was really long. The winner was IO. Anyway it was quite an enjoyable show. VI'X was really awesome I was quite proud of them. I also met some of Tony's friends and yea we hanged for a bit. But afterwards I had to quickly leave to make it to Ruski's party. I ran across the feild of UBC and found there was a fence.. I managed to climb over it and land on my feet.. nearly breaking my shoes. I ran for the bus and got on. There was some cute Japanese guys on teh bus but i didnt bother talking to them. Anyway I made it to Ruski's party and there were ALOT of people again. I met many people there and alot of them liked my height. "Perfect for Japanese man" --apparently. The highlights were Kazuma from Ehime and Satoru from Tokyo

Lolita Secret Garden Party


Today I went to Secret Garden for a lolita party. There I met some new people. I cant remember her name but the tall one was kinda of rude to me.. saying that my blouse should be fitted and seemed like she was talking down on my dress etc. The other new asian girl was very cheerful and emi was really adorable. After tea, I thought we will have a photoshoot but everyone had made plans after and viki was tiered. oh yea, I met her boyfriend too. He seems like a very nice guy. We took a few photos and since Khea's b-day is tmr I made her a banner and requested that everyone take a picture with it with me. I hope she likes it ^___^. Afterwards Emi and I hanged out. I went to her house to met her dolls. Apparently we have the same taste in music and yea, anyway we picked up her dolls and went to my place to pick up shuuya. We took lots of photos and many with her camera. Then we went to Metro took some purikura and more photos with our dolls. It was very fun. Then we went home.
