It’s So Bad It’s Actually Funny

Life is super funny don’t you think? I mean, where else would everything that needs to happen NOT happen and everything that you sincerely hope WON’T happen does? That’s pretty funny if you ask me.

I think that’s how you should look at it. Like when it rains exactly on the day you decide to go to Universal Studios Japan, think about how funny it is that it just HAD to rain. It just couldn’t hold it in for a few more hours. So you end up sloshing through a few inches of water and getting your shoes and socks soaked through and you come home in serious danger of dying of pneumonia. If that happened in a movie it would be considered a comedy. So why not look at it like that?

Or take the slightly more tragic and tear inducing situation. Like….say, not being able to go to your friends birthday party.

You’ve gotta admit that not being able to go to the one party that you’ve been lobbying for since kingdom come is so ridiculously cruel that it actually begins to look funny. I mean, what are the odds? You did EVERYTHING right and still it went wrong. And then you went a threw a fit and actually started crying and basically caused a whole lot of drama all around the house. I’m betting you looked pretty stupid. Which is always fun.

Seriously people, life’s pretty funny and its also extremely short. So we should all start acting like it is. Is what I think



For Anita (And me) because we both love Plushy:D

Speaking of figure skating. Who thinks Evan Lysacek is a teeeeeny tiny little bit of a…shall we say…coward(?)

Why? Because he’s pulled out of worlds. There’s nothing wrong with pulling out of a competition, but I think he should have gone. He probably doesn’t want to have to defend his Olympic gold title that he so recently acquired. And since there’s been a lot of controversy over who really should have won blah blah blah, if he loses that will mean that he didn’t REALLY deserve the gold at Vancouver and that would be a trifle embarrassing for him. Oh well. I don’t know much about figure skating and the politics of it all. But Evan should go. Even if its just to show everyone that he’s not afraid of losing.

Lethal Weapons

So there’s this really deadly weapon lying around the house. Like a threat to world peace sorta weapon. And here it is.

You may laugh, but this is seriously dangerous. If you use this sort of contraption often, I promise you that one day you’re head will decide to part ways with your neck. Permanently.

It can also be used as a choking device. See example below.

And just another picture that I wanted to post because Anita’s headband makes her look like she’s wearing a mushroom…

And a last picture that I took for Seiko, just because I was thinking about her today. I love you Seikochan. You’re really special

So Here’s Those Promised Portraits


This is the one that Anita drew. Even after she tweaked my nose half a million times, everyone still agreed that it looked odd. But it’s great. Anita has this way of making everything she does look super difficult and professional. You will do great things some day Anita. Things that involve selling paintings, publishing books and getting lots of money.

THIS ONE on the other hand is the one that I drew. Now, when it comes to art, lets just say that I have other talents. Anita was so frightened when I told her I wanted to use her art book, she made me draw from the back on the other side of some scribbles. But in my defense, even though there’s no complicated shading, I don’t think it’s THAT bad….


Or is it….?

This Is Strange

Hmmmm. Maybe not the funnest thing ever, but it sure is interesting. Anita is drawing my profile picture now. Like, I’m sitting here and she’s drawing me. (I’M SORRY FOR MOVING MY HEAD!)And apparently she just figured out what was wrong with my face. Yeah, I take slight offense in that comment. Our eyes just met and for some reason she started laughing at me. I think it’s either because my nostrils are big (She just said that) or because she was so mad that I moved she had to release her anger through laughter because yelling wouldn’t contain it. (Gasp. She just swore. Did you find your eraser dear? No, you DON’T have to erase everything. WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!) I will most definitely post of picture of the finished product when it’s finished. If it’s ever finished. And if it’s any good. Actually, even if it’s terrible, I’ll post it anyways to annoy Anita. Ahahahahahah. I just saw Anita coloring in my nostril (I’m sorry I’m a freak Anita) and it just reminded me way too much of Neo’s nostrils in the Doormatrix. I’ve just been scolded. And she’s laughing again. She must be really mad. You need to calm down Anita. (I’m SORRY my nose is crooked and difficult to draw. Yes yes, I’m so happy you got it perfectly. Finally) I think I’m just going to publish this post now and post the picture seperately. Because I’m getting bored of jotting down Anita’s every exclamation. Goodbye.

Uh….It’s me again, but since I’m still modeling (Gosh I feel so important saying that) I’ll just write some more. Anita say’s that the hardest thing to do is to draw my lips because they’re so perfec….what? I’m not making this up. I swear.

What are some other things going on here recently. Well, I’m considering asking Sam to play a game of Rumikube with me and Anita but I don’t want to knock on…SHHHHHHH!! He’s outside the room now. (Anita go and ask Sam in. It’s rude to keep them standing around. ANITA! GO!) Well he’s gone now. You really miffed it Anita. (I don’t care if my eyes are too far apart for your liking. Oh. You meant in the picture.) I just read my post through. This getting rather foolish and since I think Anita is almost done, I might just leave. For real this time. Anita says it usually takes her only a few minutes to finish a picture but I think she’s showing off because she knew I’d write that on my blog and that you would read it. (I don’t care if I’m weird. NOOOOOOOO! Don’t give me a wrinkle!!!!! I take it all back!) She says I look old. Actually, the ironic thing is, I just found a white hair on Anita’s head yesterday while she was sleeping. I took it out for her. Maybe she felt someone pulling her hair in a dream. Oh, and did you know that when you dream it means you’re brain isn’t sleeping? I just found that out today. Your brain sleeps? Isn’t it supposed to be telling you to do important stuff like breathe. Or telling your heart to pump? (Whoops. I just whipped my hair back. And apparently Anita has decided to stop drawing me and has turned me into Val Kilmer. Random, I know) She’s improvising now. I really must go. This is getting long and stupid and I still want to get Anita to ask Sam to play Rumikube. (I swear, he just moved in his room) I have just pasted a rather large and fake smile on my face (I’m also reading aloud while I type. Smiling, reading and typing at the same time is not as easy as people say) because Anita said that me with my Keira Knightly pout looks like Val Kilmer. I don’t know what to write anymore. (I’m NOT gritting my teeth!) Goodbye. (I’ve seen that word somewhere in this post before…..)

P.s. The bastard wind just blew everything off Anita’s shelf. It’s supposedly my fault.

P.p.s. SHE’S DONE! And me likey!

P.p.p.s. She’s re-doing my nose. She says I look like Lady Gaga pre -nose job in the picture

BBQ’s And A Family Reunion

Our dearest brother (Not dearest like he’s the most dear brother. Like “Dearly beloved” sorta dear) returned to us after being missing in action for the longest of time. And as is the Kempeneer way, we decided to have a BBQ to welcome him back. PLUS Martin came over so we had our entire family together for the first time in about….2 years. Which was pretty cool.

It’s a bit odd having Sam back. He’s been gone for so long it’s hard to get used to him actually being here. I ran into him on the way upstairs and I was  like “What are you doing here?”

But it IS cool that he’s here. He’s always been jumping around the place so I’m glad he’s staying for a good while. I need to find some time to talk to him about stuff, because we never actually talk. Just “Hi” each other in the morning.

Well here’s a pic…Hoping that all you readers are somewhere safe with you’re families…

This Is Sad

Uh….Just a joke really. But it’s pretty sad considering it might just have happened somewhere at sometime to someone.

The Pope dies and, naturally, goes to heaven. He’s met by the reception committee, and after a whirlwind tour he is told that he can enjoy any of the myriad of recreations available.

He decides that he wants to read all of the ancient original text of the Holy Scriptures, so he spends the next eon or so learning languages.

After becoming a linguistic master, he sits down in the library and begins to pour over every version of the Bible, working back from most recent “Easy Reading” to the original script.

All of a sudden there is a scream in the library. The Angels come running in only to find the Pope huddled in his chair, crying to himself and muttering, “An ‘R’! The scribes left out the ‘R’.”

A particularly concerned Angel takes him aside, offering comfort, asks him what the problem is and what does he mean.

After collecting his wits, the Pope sobs again, “It’s the letter ‘R’. They left out the ‘R’. The word was supposed to be celebRate!”

I’ve Done It Again

No mom, I’m not talking about your missing muffins. (That was Anita’s fault) What I meant to say was that I’ve…..started another blog. I KNOW! Recently I barely even update this one, HOW THE (Censored) are you going to keep ANOTHER one?!?!?!?!?! Firstly. The new one is in Japanese. So it sorta counts toward language development…? I think. (So if I’m on the computer during school hours you can’t say anything mom) So, it’s for a good cause. Secondly. I PROMISE (Not to you. To myself) to update my blog with AT LEAST one post a day. Both blogs. So now you can all be happy and I can have two blogs and I can be happy and then we’ll all be happy and that’s just great.

(Did I mention that this is my post for the day….Guess not)

Oh and here’s my other bloggie. Life Is Happy

Because it is

I Love Japanese People

Please watch this. Just because I want you to see how cool Japanese people are

So Many Things…

…are going on right now. Well, not REALLY. In fact, life continues on as always. But it seems different. To me at least. I feel busier. Maybe a tiny little bit more fulfilled. Like I’m not just drifting along with no purpose. I feel like I’m actually working towards something and that makes me feel motivated.

As a person, I tend to get all excited about something but after a while I get bored. I’m not the sort of person who finishes everything they start. I’m one of those fair weather ninnies and I’m kind of a wimp. I don’t like hard work and I tend to run away from difficult things. BUT I’m trying to change that. I’ve always found it difficult to be the “real” me. I’ve always been caught up in the person I thought I should be or the things I thought I should be able to do. For example….For the longest time I thought I should be a computer graphics designer. Because that’s what my genius of a brother does. And he’s great at it. So for the longest time I ran around reading computer books. But that didn’t last. Because I honestly wasn’t interested. Or another time, I was so convinced that I wanted to be a nurse. And I was going to go to school and everything. But that didn’t last either. Because I wasn’t completely dedicated to that. I’ve always wanted glamorous roles. I love being the center of attention. So I’ve always tried to convince myself that my talents are the sort of  ones that get you noticed. Like, say, singing or dancing or getting on CNN for helping orphans in Haiti or whatever. But recently I’ve begun to get a sneaking suspicion that maybe, just maybe, I’m meant to be in the sidelines. Maybe it’s someone else’ job to be a shining star or whatever. Maybe. But whatever happens, I do think I’ve found something I’m completely in love with and that I could actually dedicate time and effort and hard work to. So yeah. Cheers for me<3
