Hey, Creamy. Sorry for the late reply. As you saw on my insta, I've been a little busy 📸💁‍♀️🔥. It's hard making time when you have so much vacationing and events planned, you know? 👑🐸

Ha, but seriously, how are you feeling now? Been about 3 months since you got covid. Any lingering symptoms? And I totally believe you about Omicron spreading wildly. Same situation down here. At one point over the span of about 2 weeks, my department at work had about 20 call outs per day. Everything had to be pushed back. Stock trucks, warehouse plans, etc. Now, we rarely get any covid cases. Like, covid just fucking disappeared. Idk man... I'm salty about the whole situation. I got my booster in early December and have been wearing my mask everywhere. I still haven't caught shit. Nothing at all! What annoys me even more is that even after my Tennessee trip, I STILL didn't catch it. And let me tell you something quickly about that Tennessee trip... After the first day there, my cousin and I just said, "fuck it" to our masks, because we were the only asshats out there wearing them. It felt So. Good. not having to worry about bringing and wearing masks all the damn time. So pissed that I'm back in this shit. Granted, I'm seeing less and less people wear them here in Miami, but I'm not about to fall into that routine and contribute to the message that we should all abandon our masks. Not yet. There is no timetable, right? And no health and safety information outlet has said we can all stop wearing them, so... yea. Plus, I'm sure Miami is way more potent with covid than Gatlinburg Tennessee anyway 🤷‍♂️.

Xmas was pretty good for me actually 😅. Sorry, it didn't pan out for you. It was crisp and relatively cool. Not sweater weather, but it wasn't nasty and hot outside. Plenty food, music, sports on the tv. People were outside and we had a fire going. It was nice and cozy 😊. I got tipsy near the end and started rambling about the covid situation at work to my uncle, who was also tipsy at the fire place 😂. I think the best present I got was from my sister, who bought me one of those bathroom bundle packs. Brand is called Buttah. It came with a moisturizer, a face cleanser and skin brightening serum. It actually changed my life because of how effective it is. And this was the first time that I actually researched the product. There's a bunch a black people testimonies on the website! No wonder it's working for me. Up until now all I've been buying is white people product from the grocery store 😱. I didn't know it'd make such a difference. Quote: "Formulated especially for melanin rich complexions and all skin types."
Well, either way, since using this product, I've been dabbling with other "higher" quality products, with recommendations from my sister. I switched to original Dove soap for starters. It leaves my body so moisturized and silky smooth 😫! What was I thinking before! I used to leave the bathroom all dry skinned and crackly after a shower 🙅‍♀️. Even the lotion I applied on my skin was garbage. Now, get this, I'm using "Moisturizer". NOT lotion anymore. Like I knew there was a fucking difference in the beginning 🤦‍♂️. But yea, it's been an interesting couple of weeks and physically I'm all for the better now. (I even changed my shampoo and conditioner to something 10x better! 🤩 Some funny brand called Not Your Mothers 😂. Anti-frizz version)

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. His version of Joker was first introduced in the first Suicide Squad. Morbius was supposed to come out after.. which was about 2 years ago now. Original release date was July 2020. I ended up seeing Spiderman twice. And it was fantastic both times. Really fun movie to watch and I'm glad Sony and Marvel made it work. Truly a gem when you think about all the logistical and political barriers. First of all, I'm SO GLAD Daredevil is back. Can't wait to see where he shows up again (I think I already know). And hands down, my favorite scene in the movie was the one you pointed out. I literally had the Home Alone face from the second Andrew took the first step in saving MJ. I was speechless. I'm actually welling up just thinking about that moment again 😳. I can't find it right now, but because of the overwhelming reception Andrew's spidey has received, there was a rumor going around saying The Amazing Spiderman 3 was in talks 🤩. Apparently leaked by Andrew's stunt double. God, I hope so. Give the man his 3rd movie 😫.
So lol, The Eternals does seem pretty underwhelming, doesn't it. I mean, expectations for these Marvel movies can be so high sometimes, but it's true. It ain't the best one of the bunch. I don't think it's bad though. I saw it for the second time on Disney+ and appreciated it a little more. Couple things about that movie. First, I believe the voice Jon Snow heard in his head in the post credit scene was Blade. At least that's what people are saying online. This is how they bring the famous vampire hunter in. Second, I needed someone to explain to me why the fuck some random dude teleported onto the Domo in the mid credits scene and said he was Thanos' brother. Turns out, Thanos was an Eternal/Deviant hybrid. Fucking crazy. His skin was purple because of his deviant mutation. Aaaaand thirdly, the Marvel instagram account posted a quote from Druig (the mind controlling Eternal who acts like an asshole), stating that they have to go back the Earth because they missed a couple of deviants. Except that these were a little different. Their DNA mutated differently. More naturally. So they call them "Mutants" (pretty much X-men). Marvel is going to reveal the Mutants this summer. Maybe at San Diego Comic Con.
Good times are coming up. Marvel may have pushed their movie slate back AGAIN, but we still have 3 movies part of the MCU this year, plus whatever D+ series come out. I've heard the trailers for Morbius (the last one) and Doctor Strange were really good, albeit spoilery (don't tell me anything! 👺). And I can't wait for Moon Knight.

I'm a ramen man, so I'll definitely check and try those out. I "have" seen parasite, but I don't remember anything about noodles in it. That said, ramen with steak bites sounds friggen delicious. Maybe there's a restaurant around here that serves it 🤤. I haven't tried the two Sake bottles on the right yet! 😓. After all this time. I'll try to get to them soon.

Speaking of diverse food scenes... When Dale and I were in Tennessee, we ate like KINGS everyday. Gatlinburg is a super touristy town, so there are many place to eat in a small radius. They have a strip similar to the Las Vegas strip. And oh god, so much southern food. Creamy, I didn't just come back to Miami with memories and souvenirs, I came back with a few extra pounds 😱🤫. I'm still trying to work them off 🙅‍♀️! But the food was so good. Full course breakfast meals - Belgian waffles, doused in syrup, covered with fruits and whipped cream. Freshly made coffee and squeezed oj. Eggs, bacon, toast, hashbrowns. I can't tell you how many different burgers and wings we had. And one night we went to a Mexican restaurant. That was the best Mexican food I ever had 😦.

I don't really dress up, but idk. I may do something for Halloween this year. I've been to a couple cons though. One in Tampa, 2 here in Miami and New York Comic Con, which was the last one I did. I feel like I've experienced all there is to cons after that one. Definitely worth the time. I can't believe you haven't been to one!

It's so fascinating coming back to the conversations sometimes. So much, yet so little has happened. Nothing happened with entourage girl 😅. As a matter of fact, she got covid soon after that and I didn't see her for a while. When she came back, I didn't bring up going to the movies or anything because I definitely didn't want her to feel obligated in anyway. We just talk like normal whenever we see each other or keep it to a simple greeting. How much conversation can I get while we're both working, ya know? Either way, I don't feel that spark coming from her, so I doubt shes interested 🤷‍♂️. Rather not push it and make things uncomfortable. As mundane as it be, nothing flashy happening in my romantic life right now lol 😪.

My massage bundle works beautifully, thank you 💆‍♂️. Money well spent. I swap between them periodically. Did you get that face massager? How bizarre. I feel like I'd start sweating with that thing strapped to my face 😧.

I not gonna waste my time watching the live action Cowboy Bebop series, just like you. But you should Really watch the Matrix. Not only is it iconic, but it's a really good movie. The sequel, Reloaded, has it's ups and downs, but still worth it. Unfortunately, the 2nd movie has a cliff hanger for the 3rd, so you'll feel compelled to watch it. It's the weakest of the trilogy, but if you've made it to the 3rd, you might as well finish it off. Don't watch the 4th, Resurrections. It's trash.

That dude from Dune is showing up EVERYWHERE. He's like the hot new thing 🙄.

Yea, the benefits with Ikea are decent, but not infinite. I know we are covered for stuff like chiropractors, but I haven't really researched beyond that. Plus, who needs a chiropractor when you have a massage kit like mine 😉.

So, speaking of coffee, I've been drinking a lot lately. Not alcohol. Just drinking fluids a lot. Especially this newish offering at Dunkin.. It's called a Cold Brew. You can tweak it's contents when ordering on the app, but that's my go to coffee now. I rarely use the Nespresso machine, but I'm glad I have it lol. It comes in clutch from time to time.

Yup, it's pretty scary. Gotta take care of yourself from the get-go. The Oral-B toothbrush is great btw. Battery is insane. I charge it like every 2 weeks.
Those whitening options are interesting, but I feel like the saliva in my mouth would wash the contents away... I've been using Sensodyne Gentle Whitening Toothpaste, but I feel like it's not doing a good enough job, so I recently bought Crest Charcoal 3D White Toothpaste. My teeth don't feel sensitive like after using charcoal powder, but I gotta give it more time to see if it's actually doing anything. I already took my "before" picture. Been about a week now. I'll take an "after" pic when the tube is done 🙏.

Nahhh, I wouldn't rewatch all of Bleach. That's too time consuming. I'll watch a story recap on youtube before it starts airing. Honestly, I suggest you do the same. What you been watching now anyway? I just finished Demon Slayer S2. Holy SHIT. Best animation I've seen in any anime. Series or movie. Currently watching the final Attack on Titan season. Been slowly catching up with OP. Recently picked up My Hero Academy again. I'm a season and a half behind. And tonight I actually bought tickets to go watch the Jujutsu Kaisen movie with Dale. We're gonna see it March 18th.

Not to end my post on a drag, but... Ukraine, huh? 😕 What a shit show.

I've been good, holiday/new years also good. Damn, that sucks that you still feel the effects of the cold that should be gone by now, but whats what happens in cold weather. I have a feeling you were really busy because I check every few times and you wouldn't be on months at a time. I really don't want to go back to replying a comment from 6 months or a year ago lol. I've been trying my best to not get sick since I don't want to be around people who might be positive for COVID in the waiting room like what happened to my friend when she was scheduled to get an MRI. She was in a separate room but they had to walk by a room full of people to get her test, the next day she went to see if she caught it and did. I'm re-watching "Major", sports anime. the journey of Goro, from boy to adult living his dream as a pro Baseball player


DST = Daylight Saving Time

That may be so but do it in the theatre first and then a month later or 2 its on the streaming service but there are films I would rather see it on the big screen instead of on the computer. The first time film I've over the 2 years was "Far From Home" and holy shit it was great.

I'm currently playing Legends Arceus and man I'm having so much fun, so different. You cant play it like the mainline games and I hope they do more of this or try to mix this new element in the mainline games

Hope everything is good with you and waiting on your reply :)

Hey creamy, just in case we don't talk again before Xmas, "Merry Xmas" 🤗🎄🎁. Have a safe and joyful holiday.

Sadly, I'll be working around Xmas time. I chose to take time off during Thanksgiving, so the other managers that I work with used the pto this month. I have more time off coming in January. One of those days is for Morbius 💪. Speaking of Marvel, SPIDER-MAN is next week (at time of typing). Omg, it was MADDENING when tickets went live. Worse than when Endgame tickets went on sale. This time, not only did I have to fight against other Marvel fans, but Spider-Man fans too. Some of these assholes just want to see a spidey movie, regardless of the overall MCU storyline. Ugh. AND, Sony and the ticket holders announced a date and time for when the tickets released, so the fucking website and apps were bricked for HOURS. Fucking idiots. Tickets went live at midnight, but I didn't nab any until 5am. Luckily I had to work early that morning, so after the failure between 12am-1am, I caught a catnap and got my tickets a few hours later. The plan as always is to get my Marvel tickets for Fridays because my cousin who comes with me, can't see them opening night. He works early Mon-Fri 🤷‍♂️. But of course, at 5am in the morning, 80% of the seats were already gone for the Dolby showings. Only bad seats left. Had to settle for Saturday night. It's fine though. I'll survive. Decent seats in the center-left, but I'M READY BABY 🕷🕸. I've never seen anything like this though. That first day, the app and website were unreliable because of the traffic, but later on that night, I checked to see how many seats were left and.... holy shit. 90% of EVERYTHING was SOLD OUT. I mean, gone-gone. 11am showings, all the way to the midnight showings. Thursday, Fri, Sat... Across multiple theater chains too. And at the time, the movie was still a month away 😲. I have a friend at work who told me she ended up getting tickets for the following week. First of all, wow. And second of all, how the hell did they have showings listed for the week after already 😱. Shit is unreal man.
Still haven't really been spoiled on anything, thank god. No trailers and the like. I don't know anything and plan to keep it that way. Don't tell me anything about anything please. I've already unsubscribed and filtered out anything Marvel or superhero related from my social media sites. Twitter, Reddit, YT, etc. And sometime next week, probably Wednesday, I'm gonna have to go on a social media blackout or something. Already have a few friends, who don't mind spoilers, on the lookout for me to give me a heads up 😅. The plan is in motion 😤.

In any case, Try this link for the Korean grocery pics. Hopefully it works this time.
I've tried most of everything at this point and the verdict ain't too good 😑... Starting from the top left in the snacks picture, the choco crisps basically taste like cocoa pebbles smooshed together in pizza pie shape. The Pocky.. well, tasted like Pocky (super uneventful). The grape gummies left a plasticky coat on my tongue. The strawberry jam biscuits were tasteless believe it or not. Figured "jammed filled strawberry" would be bursting with flavor 🤷‍♂️. The flaming hot lime turtle chips taste exactly as I figured they would. I'm just not a big fan of the taste lol. The taiyaki ice cream was the biggest let down for me 👺! That story I had about the ramen shop I went to a few months ago with my cousin, I had taiyaki there and it's been on my mind ever since. I get it though.. One was made fresh, and the other was probably sitting in a freezer for weeks-months and probably not made with the same ingredients, but damn man, it was the literal definition of "grocery mart ice cream" 😥. Total let down. The kimchi ramen does Not have a good flavor. I'm not a fan at all of that. As a matter of fact, I need to throw it out. Only consumed one. The cookies and cream/mango thingy is a weird one. It's not really a cookie or a biscuit per say, but soft and foamy textured? If that makes sense? But worst of all, they tasted like cardboard. No flavor at all, like tofu. Threw them out after trying each one. You should've seen the face I made after trying them. Trust me, had you seen it, you wouldn't feel guilty at all for tossing them in the trash. I wasn't going to force myself to eat them, so yea.. Ironically, the "pink packaged ramen" I was talking about in my last post just happened to be the first and best thing I tried. It really set me up for disappointment lol. I was so eager to try everything else after that friend rice ramen. Little did I know what was coming 😅.. The small package on the bottom right is a sweet rice cake. Sweet my ass. It was a tasteless powdery lump of dough.. Threw out after a couple bites. And I haven't tried the steam buns yet. Not expecting much, to be frank, but I'll let you know.

As for the drinks in the second picture, I still haven't gotten to anything besides the boss coffee lol. The snacks really let me down, so I'm not too keen on rushing to try anything else. Tbh, I kind of forgot I had korean stuff still 😬. Yikes. You see, this is why I need you to show me around and take me to all the fire ass korean joints and restaurants. Don't worry, I'll fly out after Xmas and you can take me to all the hot spots 😎. Your treat 😉.

---

I didn't dress up this year, but I did have Halloween off. I went to watch Halloween Kills, ironically enough. It was garbage. I left the theater irritated. I can't remember the last time I dressed up for anything 😥. You dress up every year?

So, regarding that girl. As much as I like her, I don't think she feels the same way tbh. And I'm not going to force anything. I'd rather be on good terms, rather than leave things awkward, ya know? During our texting, at one point I said something like, "hopefully it doesn't take another incident like this for us to talk 🙂", and all I got back was a "liked comment". So, yea. It ended it there. I can take a hint 🤷‍♂️.
Side note, that girl Marisol (red flags)... lol, she works in the department with the korean girl and the first one, Claudia now. She wanted to switch departments. Like, what is going on here?? I'm about to have my own little k-drama series at Ikea 😂😅😥. Side-side note, there's ANOTHER girl in that department who I'm kinda sorta crushing on right now (sorry, I know 😥), but I don't really have the intention of pursuing because I think she's in her early 20s. Might be a little too young for me, but MAN she's into that nerdy and Marvel stuff. We've already talked pretty extensively about stuff and she's genuinely into it. I like that. We have common ground. AND she (and like half of her department) have the AMC pass. She's brand new to it. One of the guys in that department, Manny, also got the pass recently, and I made him a part of my AMC Entourage. It's a feature in the app that allows people who have the AMC Pass to link up and purchase tickets for each other. For free obviously, because you have "the pass".
Anyway, this girl brought up the fact that she knew Manny and I were entourage buddies and said she wanted to add me. I was like, "sure no prob", but I was kinda in a hurry that day and moment, so I tossed it to the side in my mind. The thing is, you gotta have someone's phone number for that. You have the send the link to your entourage, so they can accept the invitation. I don't have her number... but now... I've got a good reason to go back and get dem digits boiiiiiiii 👃🔥🔥🔥.

Strangely enough, this December hasn't been too bad with the "holiday rush". Maybe people are taking a chill pill because the world is going through economic inflation. Good. Makes my life easier. And they FINALLY changed the fucking Covid rules at Ikea. Took them 2 years ffs. Instead of being able to go on quarantine if you claim "you've been in contact" with someone who has covid or even say you've been "coughing a lot" 🙄, now you have to present a positive covid test. It's exactly as stupid as it sounds. All of a sudden, NOW you need a positive test. Before, not so much. The pain and suffering those of us that didn't take advantage of the system or got already got vaccinated, doesn't make up for it. I've aged twice as fast these last two years man. Not cool.

So... speaking of massages... I kind of went on a splurge recently 😅. I've had a shiatsu pillow for a couple months now (life changing omg 😩), but I've decided to take it to the next step. I purchased these three machines.
Shiatsu Foot Massager
Neck & Back Massager
Massage Gun
I was literally sitting in my comfy gaming chair at 4am on Wednesday morning, watching Hawkeye Ep4 with the foot massager rumbling, the neck one over my shoulders kneading into my upper back muscles, the massage gun in one hand and a glass of wine in the other 😩🥴💁‍♀️. I felt like I was turning into those people from the Wall-E movie 🙄🤖.

That picture is crazy. How did your relatives fare? Homes still intact? I'm telling you, when the apocalypse finally comes, it's gonna be hell on earth. Every man and group for themselves. I hope you have a bunker stationed away somewhere in those forest areas. Me? I'm gonna chill with the gators.

Haha, I remember those days of sneaking into other theaters. I did it maybe 3 times, but now I don't need a reason. AMC Pass has me covered and well, since I have a car n stuff, I can go whenever I want. But yea, I usually go by myself because the minute you decide to take someone or some people, several things need to be taken into account. Do schedules match up. Are you meeting up before. Who's hungry. Who's car. Fuckin A, it's a hassle. Obviously for Marvel movies, my crew and I have a decent routine down, but for everything else, I kind of decide on a whim. If it's a "big" movie, I'll ask one or two people if they're interested. Smaller flicks I just go by myself. Ever since the introduction to these movie passes, there are a lot more single viewers in theaters. (this is something the girl "I'm crushing on right now" were talking about one day. she wasn't sure if she wanted to go to the movies alone because her close friends don't go to the theater that much. I was telling her it wasn't that bad. Once you get over the fact that absolutely nobody cares if you go alone, you'll be fine... but maybe.. just maybe... she doesn't need to go alone... and I could ask her to go to some of them 😳😳😳🤪. you know, as friends 😏)

Don't waste your time like that creamy! If a show doesn't click by the end of the second episode, drop it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone or yourself. And don't let the hype get the better of you. I've been wanting to start the Cowboy Bebop that recently released on Netflix, but the show has already been canned. I've only seen the first 3 minutes of it, but apparently the show drops in quality after the first ep and doesn't recover. So, yea. Guess I'm dropping it from my list. There's plenty other stuff to watch out there.

I also rewatched Homecoming and Far From Home, in preparation for No Way Home. Also saw the Matrix 1 and 2. Still need to watch the 3rd one before Resurrection comes out Xmas weekend. I don't remember liking it too much when it came out 😶.

I like both spidey couples for different reasons. There's so much needless drama between the first couple though 😅. I find them both attractive though. Kirsten Dunst has such a sexy aura around her sometimes (deep down, I think I secretly have a thing for redheads 🤐) and Emma Stone is adorable as Gwen Stacy. The Eternals was decent. I actually didn't watch it a second time in theaters. I'll just wait for the Disney plus release. January 12th, I believe. At least I'm caught up with everything and primed and ready to go for spider-man and this multiverse thing. We've already dealt with it in Endgame and Loki, but I feel like big things are about to happen. Can't wait.

The problem with Dune is that so much of the movie felt like a set up for the inevitable sequel, which has already been greenlit. Takes forever to get things going. Nobody really grows as much as you'd expect them to. The protag does a little. Have you seen Dune or Eternals yet?

Nah, I just don't go to those events. Not really my thing. I won't have fun.

I tried sleep gummies twice around the time I bought the THC gummies. They work, but I think I prefer the tablets. Same effect really.
Ooh, how did acupuncture feel? How many needles did they poke you with?!

Nah, I'm not lactose or anything, but I'm pretty sure it's the coffee. I bought a coconut-milk creamer to go with it, but I always put creamer in my coffee. Can't drink it straight, yuck 🤮. And I bought this pack recently.
So wait, you're lactose? Or you can't handle "some" dairy products?

So, I had my 2nd yearly dental visit and asked the dentist how I'm supposed to handle teeth whitening without spending thousands of dollars. Also preferably for a natural alternative. She didn't really have an answer for me 🤷‍♂️. My teeth are definitely more sensitive now, but not while eating anything, thank god. It's only when I go to the dentist now. My freaking gums are starting to recede 😰. My dentist kept telling me to use soft toothbrushes and to "brush away from the teeth". I don't know if you've ever done that, but it's hard as shit to brush like that and still make it feel like you've given your chompers a good scrubbing. After talking with her for a bit, I decided to buy one of those electric toothbrushes. Did about an hour of research that night and bought this one, along with these accompaniments.
Oral B iO9
Enamel toothpaste
Enamel mouthwash
I got lucky, it was on sale for $200. I bumped back up. The dentist also told me that if I was still focused on whitening my teeth, I could use one of the charcoals, but not excessively. Like maybe for a week, once a month, as long as it doesn't bother me. When I was using it daily-ish, my teeth were DEFINITELY sensitive frequently. But hey, at least they were sparkly white. If I get to that point, I'll research charcoals. Right now my concern is my gums.

Yea, he's fine. I got the full scoop from him on Thanksgiving 😅. Was one hell of a story.

Also, I just got my booster AND my flu shot 🎉! Had three days off, so I got them on the first day. Had a slight fever and random cold sweats throughout the days. Arms don't really hurt anymore, so I' ready to go back to my normal routines. It was a peaceful 3 days ☺. At least I'm ready for the next couple of months and whatever new variants pop up (I'm looking at you Omicron 👺).

So, I finally hit up not one, but TWO asian grocery marts. I asked one of my friends who is no stranger to them to come with me. The first one was called Kimchi Mart, I think. A Korean grocery store. There were a bunch of asian people in there, I felt outta place 😱, but I didn't let that stop me 😤! And I had no idea what I was looking for, so I just went on my own little shopping spree, buying whatever looked interesting 💁‍♂️💰. The second place was called Lucky Oriental. A bit smaller, but more generalized asian shopping. I purchased whatever else I already didn't have from the first store.

It was fun and I can't wait to try everything out. I remember you sent me a picture of some ramen that I needed to buy, but I didn't come back here to find which one it was. Just purchased whatever I saw that looked interesting. I tried to stay away from anything that was sold in local grocery marts too. I didn't go to an asian grocery to buy Kellog's Cornflakes, know what I mean?

Anyway, I took pictures like a good gaijin 😁. Hopefully the links work.

Snacks
Dranks

I've already tried the Stir Fried ramen in the pink packaging and it's 🔥🔥🔥. Super tasty and a bit spicy. Also tried the grape gummies. They're pretty decent. The only drink I've tried so far is the Boss Coffee because my friend was weirdly enthusiastic about it when he saw they were back in stock 🤷‍♂️. It taste like coffee. Not bad. And so far... no side effects like with my Nespresso machine (you'll know what I mean if you read my 11/7 post first.)
Sadly, I forgot to buy anything bubble tea related. I saw several of them, but I was hesitant because I wasn't sure if "grocery mart bubble tea" would live up.

Hey 🍦, how have you been. How was your Halloween? I saw your picture on instagram when I was responding to someone in the app (I don't really go onto that account since I have nothing to post 🤷‍♂️). Let's see if I can recall what you were. I think I vampire or something? I know you were wearing black. And red maybe? Long story short, I got a friend request from someone I thought I was already following, so when I went into the app to confirm, a nightmare ensued. This girl I had a HUGE crush on a couple years ago was requesting me to follow her from another account. Very similar to her original one. Basically the same name with a "1" added to the end. And all the pictures on the account were pretty promiscuous with a link at the top linking to an OnlyFans account 😥. I felt so many things in that moment... Sadness, heartbreak, worry.. I contacted her on her original account to see if everything was ok and she told me that someone created that fake account. Imagine my SIGH of relief 😅. Anyway, I helped her out by reporting that faker and then she disappeared from my life again 😶.


Yea I am covered for things like physical therapy and chiropractic care, but I doubt my condition has reached that far. What I need is weekly professional massages 💁‍♀️. Like right now, I'm fine. I only reach those points when I push my body too far.. Work conditions suck right now. People are still taking advantage of the ESP. This one asshole had PTO for a week, called out the day he was supposed to be back, and then the next day HR told me he was going on quarantine for 10 days... Then this fuck had the audacity to request PTO again for the day he was supposed to be scheduled back after ESP. It's shit like this that doesn't make me want to go to work. It's not fair for me or others.

Ooh, I saw a notification today that vaccinated people are allowed to enter the US today. I guess that's what you were talking about. Didn't know Trader Joe's was that well known. I don't usually go there, but they have some neat stuff. I LOVE their Sparkling Limeade. 🤗

Speaking of that woman who had the covid issue - she got fired 🤷‍♂️. Not sure of the full details, but I think she hurt herself one day and then just stopped showing up to work. It reached the point where she had to be terminated. Like I said earlier, working ain't really that fun right now.

We have Landmark Cinema down here. I think. The name definitely sounds familiar, but I'm not sure if I've ever been to one lol. AMC is my go to, primarily because of the AMC Pass and their Dolby offerings. TRUST ME, you'd notice the difference if you saw a regular movie compared to Dolby. It's night and day, and the ticket price isn't that much difference. Not counting matinee prices of course. But wait, you make it sound like reserving your seats beforehand is a luxury. No way, right? I mean, that's been a standard down here for years, regardless of theater or format. Each theater has their own respective app where you can choose and purchase your seats. I can't imagine going back to waiting in line for tickets and then waiting again to line up and sit down... Hell no. Tbh, I didn't mind that before because it was point in time where my crew and I were chilling, talking shit in line and hyping ourselves up for whichever movie it was, but NOW, I wouldn't trade the convenience of today. No way in hell lol 😅.
So, as comfortable as the recliner seats are at AMC, they don't offer that adult-only experience. I know some theater chains that do, but have never been myself. Some literally have tables with waiters to serve you. A bit fancy for me 😬. Btw, on the topic of theater experiences, have you have tried those theaters that have the seats that interact with the movie? The rumbling, twisting and turning? Maybe it was a fad and fizzled out because I don't hear much people talking about it. Or maybe people just didn't like their chair vibrating every 5 minutes lol.

Yes, I definitely saw Venom 2. I guess you've seen it already. It's ok. Nothing special, but if it weren't for that mid-credit scene, the movie wouldn't have been salvageable imo.. I can't WAIT for Spider-Man No Way Home (I haven't seen the trailer, don't say anything 🤬). I'm currently watching the original movies. The ones with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in preparation. Also saw the Eternal this weekend. It was also pretty good. There was allot I liked and disliked about the movie, but it will suffice. Hawkeye's Disney+ show start November 24th, so I've got something to hold me until Spidey 👍.
LOL, Shang Chi was fine. Stop hating. Hater. I actually agree with you about Limu and his acting. Something felt "lacking", right? I mean, I didn't watch the movie to see his acting, but I did notice his performance left more to be desired, I guess? His fighting was top notch though.. And I actually liked their romance! Best friends realizing they have feelings for each other 🥰💕.

What you saw on my IMDB list was probably IMDB's scores, not mine. I haven't seen the original Dune, though I did watch the remake a week ago. It was ok (lot's of "ok" movies recently 😅). Also, definitely not watching Squid Games. I saw the hype generated online, but I've fell into that trap one too many times. The synopsis sounded stupid as hell, so I waited on some feedback from some friends and suspicions were confirmed. The show isn't anything special. Ya know, if it was a movie, I would've entertained the idea of starting it, but it's a 9 episode series? Hell no. I got better things to do that force myself to watch yet another online hype generated show. Sorry, if I sound grumpy, but I've been let down so many times when it comes to watching shows.. Either I'm losing interest or the quality of these shows/movies is rapidly dropping. Ugh. (lot's of "ok" movies recently 😅)

The wedding culture on the Trini side would be similar to that of Indian. Colorful apparel, traditional food, probably some kinda choreographed dance thing. Idk, never been to one myself heh. Not really interested, not a fan of large gatherings.

Looking back I still can't watch the video LOL makes me cringe b/c I was off beat also.


My sister is younger and yes, I did get her something! I wanted to buy her a Shiatsu pillow because I got one a couple months ago and love it, but then learned she has a massage gun, so I figured I get her something different. My cousin was telling me about these THC gummies he swears by to help him relax his body. They're pretty expensive, $50 for a 40 count, but I ended up buying 2. One for me and her. She liked the gift. I'm almost done with my bottle and while they DO work... I'm not sure the price justifies the weakish relaxant stimulation I get from it. Gotta search for another alternative. Not THC specifically, but something to help me relax the body. Any suggestions? 😕

So, speaking of entrepreneurship, those crypto currencies and NFT's have been exploding recently, eh? Several people in my bubble are doing it 😑 and I feel like I'm missing out, but I don't wanna lose thousands of dollars in 5 minutes, know what I mean? Any interest in that stuff?

Yea, this is what google just showed me.
"The discussion about screening should take place at: Age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer and are expected to live at least 10 more years. Age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer.Apr 23, 2021
Either way, I'll probably bring it up at my yearly doctors appointment. As much as I want to be on top of this stuff, I'm not sure how I feel about the actual examination, ya know? 😳👉💧🍑😵😫 I don't think I'm ready for that experience. Or will ever be 😶.

I don't recall how that bubble tea was made, I'm not even sure the menu listed it. One thing's for certain, every time I've had bubble tea, the bubbles were tasteless. I think they're called tapioca. Ugh, terrible. And squishy.

"What is that maru chan package? I've never seen that before. is that like white people ramen?😐
Lmao, probably. I mean, it gets the job done though. I still need to ask my friend if he wants to hit up one of those asian grocery stores and just buy shit 😁.

Omg.. so this blasted Nespresso machine. I kid you not, EVERY time I drink that coffee, I shit bricks later on that day. No bueno mami. Because of that, I don't drink the coffee on days that I work. It'll make me miserable 😖. But this is the first and only pack I've purchased to far. The machine came with a sampler set and about half of those are done. Not gonna lie, there's a vending machine at work that has cold Starbucks or Dunkin coffee and I just but that instead because I don't wanna deal with 🚽💩🚽.

Ya know, I asked my cousin who keeps up with the manga what was going on with OP after you told me it was ending... I was like, "bro, a friend of mine was telling me the series is almost done?! is it true? I don't want it to be over yet 👺". He said that something significant is happening right now, but in no way did that mean the show was anywhere near being done and there were easily several years more worth of story to come. He also told me to tell you to stop smoking crack and putting ideas in my head. So, stop smoking crack and putting ideas in my head creamy. That's not nice 👹.

Yea, let's go with pixel art. It has a beauty and charm to it ☺. Toby Fox, the Undertale and Deltarune developer, also makes really cute animations and expressions with the characters. Seriously, I know you'd love the series. Don't discount it. Just make sure it's on your list.

I looked into Invisalign after I read your comment a couple days ago. I'm interested in something like that. My teeth aren't crooked, but they're not perfect either.. Someone told me it costs thousands of dollars??? I have to ask my dentist for the specifics and whether I should get them or not. Also, do you whiten your teeth? I used to use charcoal, but found out it's damaged to your gums and teeth AND makes everything sensitive. I stick to a gentle whitening abrasive toothpaste, but my teeth don't sparkle white and they're definitely not the same tint they were when I used to use the charcoal.. 😓


Almost forgot! That same cousin of mine went to a Travis Scott concert this weekend and all hell broke loose. 8 people died from dehydration or being trampled from, with hundreds injured. Some 50,000 people attended? Ridiculous amount. I got a notification from CNN at 3 in the morning this past Friday about the chaos that was happening, so I texted him and he said that he was right next to some of the people that died 😱! Crazy right?
here's a news feed of it.
doeman Sep 30, 2021 1:55 AM
Hey creamy, long time 😛.

Yea, the 10 days are fully paid by the company at whatever the coworkers pay rate is. I still haven't used any of mine. I do think to go into work sometimes and just tell them I've been "coughing recently" so they send me home, but I'm better than that. Everyone that matters would know I'm doing it for the time off anyway. I've been vaccinated for months now. Idk though, maybe the vaccine is starting to "wear off" 😉.
My back is fine, thanks for asking. It was just for the time being. I took it relatively easy after that happened, but thankfully the workload hasn't been as crunchy since. Ever since school started back up, we've been with a "normal" workload. There's still a lot that needs to get done behind the scenes though. Rarely do we management to actually get to those tasks... 😑
Yea, I'd say most of the new hires are young. Between 18-25ish? Sadly, where I work, not many girlies 😞. I currently manage the back end of the warehouse where all the big boxes go. Most of the pretty faces are out on the sales floor, standin around doing jack shit.

And Nope! No progress with anyone 🤷‍♂️. Between being busy at work and relying on luck to run into anyone, not much has happened. I haven't been actively trying to talk to anyone though, like I said before. It's fine.
I think one of the girls actually might have a bf? A "new" bf??? Idk, she's been kind of distant in recent weeks, so I keep my nose down. The Korean girl is actually kind of annoying 😅. She's too energetic sometimes and I don't think she knows how to regulate her voice volume 🙄. When she laughs or god forbid, yells for whatever reason, her voice is piercing. And I'm all for playful, childish personalities, but some of the shit she does is just corny. It kills me though, because she sometimes acts like a girl straight outta high school. Been down that road before. Not doing that again 👎. And then the girl who asked me about the comic con event, I found out that she actually makes arts and crafts to sell at the con. She just wanted to know if I was going, to swing by the booth or some shit lmao 😅. And of course, she went with someone else from Ikea. They shared a booth together selling their wares. Korean girl 🙄. I knew they were friends before, but when she told me they both went I was like, "man... I need to start looking for girls outside of this damn company 😵".
On a side note, there is this other girl that... has always been kind of flirty with me? (one day, YEARS ago, I told her she looked good in glasses (she doesn't usually wear them) and ever since then she's had this playful personality) I never really pursued 🤷‍♂️ and I wasn't sure if she was with anyone because at first I thought she was a lesbian, then I saw her constantly having lunch with some dudebro from another department, then I thought she was seeing a girl and that dudebro at the same time 🙄. Last week I saw her leaving work twice with someone from her dept and getting in the same car 🤧. Like what? The second time I saw her leaving, I happened to be exiting my car, coming back from a Wendy's lunch break. With the corner of my eye I saw her walking with her department guy, but pretended not to notice. Then of course, I hear her calling out to me. First call - I don't turn, still pretending not to hear, Second call - I turn 😒. She and the guy, walk up to me. The guy is someone that likes to chat with me every now and then. I should mention they both work in the restaurant. When I happen to eat at the store, he's like always there when I'm on break 😅. Naturally, we ended up just talking whenever that happens, so that guy is on my good side, ya know? He's cool beans, SO IF he's tryna make a move on his dept buddy, I'm not gonna get in his way, ya know? Let the man work his magic 💪.
.
They both walk up and the first thing she says to me is "hey brent, raul is taking me home, I don't have a car right now".
..
And ALL I could think of in that moment was, "omg, did she say that to somehow tell me that there was nothing between them???" I mean, what a weird way to start a convo, ya know? She doesn't have to tell me that! Why would she need to?? So, my mind is racing at this point looking for a way to quickly respond and hopefully clear whatever awkward air there might be between me and raul in that moment, because remember, idk if he's been trying to put the mac on her. Imagine how he'd be feeling if he WAS trying to mac and that shit came out of her mouth... ffs. Now he's gotta drop her home, thinking she ain't interested in him at all... ugh. Damn, that moment was awkward.
Anyway, I said some shit about having to go back to the grind (was on my way to clock back in), and instantly looked at raul and said, "it's one of those days again brah".. context: most of the time we talked on lunch, i just happen to be having a shit day and he... kindly comforts me. like a good person would. "bro, don't worry you'll get through the day, I know you work hard. if you need anything, just let me know. I'll slide you an almond cake or something 😄". (you see why I was really feeling for him in that moment? he's a good guy and I hated that she said that shit)
So yea, I said it was "one of those days again", and YOU KNOW what he does??? he said, "come here, reel it in bro", extending his arms out for a hug.
Ok, so firstly, I don't know homeboy THAT well 😒 and for the first millisecond I was going to reject his hug offer because of covid (😅), but I'm not an asshole creamy. I threw my arms WIDE open and gave his ass a big hug! 😃 what a guy, right? always thinking of others.
...
Then the girl, Marisol, asked where her hug was.
...
I hugged her next...
Immediately after the hug, I said I had to start walking up (to the time clock) and as I startted to pull away, she says, and I quote, "you smell delicious 🍰".
..
I said, "😳 oh. that's probably the Wendy's, hahah.. haa ha.. hnnnn"
and she goes, "no, you smell delicious all the time"
honestly, I have no idea what I said after that. my brain is actively blocking that part of the memory. good. I know that I did walk up right after though.
*sigh* girlies mang.. what am I going to do 🙄

Yea, we do get a discount, but it's nothing special. 15%. So, the perception with Ikea is that because the product price is generally cheap, it's easy to assume the quality is also cheap. We actually have some good product there. And as for the mattress, I've actually been using an ikea mattress for over 2 years now? It was one of the higher priced models, but compared to what other places would sell that for, it was a fraction of the price.
This is actually the newer version of the mattress I purchased. I vouch for it 🙋‍♂️. It's got a cool layer of gel on top and at this point I don't really have any problems with sinks in the mattress. I have no problem switching sides on the bed daily to even-out where my weight gets placed. Obviously easy for me since I sleep by myself. Ya know, since I'm single. Remember?

Oh, I guess ya'll don't have AMC up there. Yea, it's a theater chain. My favorite one because they were the first to implement those comfy one-seater sofa chairs. And in addition to the usual premium showings like, IMAX or 3D (which I do neither of), they have a Dolby experience. Beautiful. Screen and sound are top notch. I watch all movies that deserve that type of detail in Dolby, if it's playing in that particular theater. For example, that's an obvious Marvel experience. I can't watch my Marvel movies in a regular theater anymore.
But yea, the AMC pass is incredible. For $22 a month I can watch up to 3 movies a week, regardless of the theater it's in. Regular, 3D, IMAX, Dolby, it's all covered. I can watch the same movie as many times as I want. I can reserve my tickets on the app without a stupid "service fee". It's an amazing offer. If you watch any movie on a Friday or Saturday night, one ticket can easily cost over $16. By that calculation, if you watch two movies with the pass, you've already taken advantage of it.
I never used to be that into going to the theater, but when Marvel came along, it kind of gave me reason. It's fun watching those movies with other people on Day 1. Now, there are so many movies worth watching, it's makes no sense not having the pass and dropping that kind of money 3, 4 times a month. The pass is def worth it. Also, because of covid, a bunch of movies are finally hitting theaters again all around the same time, so there's banger after banger, every week 😁! September was supposed to be my movie theater break month before October, but even this month I saw two movies. This Friday Oct 1, I got Venom 2.
Here's my IMDB list.
I put anything that's interesting on there. Should be organized by release date, if you wanna peruse it and see what's on the horizon.

So, what did you think of Shang Chi? I thought it was great. Saw it twice actually and I liked it even better the second time. The fighting was insane! The second time I went, I went with a friend who's Chinese. He said he wasn't paying that much attention the first time he went because we was drunk 😂. Another perk of AMC, they have a bar 🍸. So, we both see it for the second time together, and he mentioned the same thing to me, that some of the actors were well known asian celebrities. That's awesome.
My ringtone is now a song from that movie 😋. The one that plays when they're in the car heading to the fighting area. It's a great shot and song to play. The nighttime building lights are reflecting off the car windows as Shang Chi and Awkwafina are looking outside.

"And then I also came from a family BBQ gathering so I wore sneakers...idk why I didn't think to carry heels or something 🤦‍♀️"
haha (omg 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️)
Holy shit, that is time consuming. I remember a friend of mine from years ago saying it wasn't worth it to put that much time and money into a wedding, because what if it doesn't work out? You gonna do all of that over again when you meet someone else?
I get it though, it's a special moment for the couple and the bride should especially have her moment. It's just crazy to think how much goes into the whole thing. (I wouldn't know anything about that. Because I'm still single. Remember? Nothing's changed in the last 20 minutes since I last mentioned it). I'm half Trini and that side of my family is very intune with their Indian side. I'm no stranger to the culture, but yea, I don't really mess with that side lol 😅. Half of that stuff you mentioned, I don't recognize or haven't heard of.

Happy belated anniversary. Don't worry, it'll be more exciting next year when covid is gone and you can go where ever you want 😉. And the weather will be perfect. Clear skies and sunshine 🌞🌈!
Btw, how was "your" wedding? How long you been married again?

My sister came in from Cali to celebrate her bday earlier this month. We rented a house near the beach. Close friends and family. That's pretty much it lol.

---

Uhh, Florida is supposedly flubbing the covid numbers, so we actually have no idea how bad it is here 🤷‍♂️. I did hear about that passport in Canada though. I saw some of the protests online. Idk what to tell your friends though. I'm going through the same thing here. People I know, few friends and family keep saying the same bullshit. "oh, i just want to make sure the vaccine is safe.." blah fucking blah. It's been 6 months since the vaccines rolled out and there are absolutely no major downsides to it. It's protecting you and others. IF, for whatever reason, someone has medical reason to believe the shot will negatively impact them, then the simply wear a mask everywhere publicly they go and provide proof that they can pass on the shot. I'm done playing this game with people. "ooh, but i saw that one article online". shut the hell up and stop making excuses. gahd, these people. they look for Every Little Thing and it makes them feel important when they have "reason" to not get the shot and hold the entire world back. ffs.

The one time I believed someones refusal to get the shot was when the person in question said that their father died "shortly after getting the vaccine and that doctors said it was because of that". Now, I'm no doctor, but if a doctor tells you that someone died because of the vaccine, who am I to say otherwise? they told her it affected his heart or something. he was already ill, but apparently, the vaccine pushed him over the edge? the heart couldn't handle it? idk. were the doctors lying? idk. was she lying to me? idk. if this is all true, are we really going to blame the vaccine?? idk what i do know is that there is a very small chance that the vaccine ends up hurting/killing you and if her father was really and truly a part of that small percentage, then I can understand her hesitation. she was worried that because it affected her father that way, she'd receive the same fate. and she has asthma. so she never got the shot 🤷‍♂️.
then about a month ago, she got covid, despite every precaution she took. she said she had lunch with her cousin one afternoon and the day after the cousin called her and said she had tested positive and that she should test herself as well. like i said earlier, she ended up testing positive.
the day she received that call from her cousin, i saw her leaving work. it was early in the AM and i was getting out of my car to head inside. when I asked my peers why she left so early, that's when they told me about the cousin. she didn't show up to work for 2 and a half weeks after that. hit her bad. she said she thought it was the end.
anyway, she ended up getting her first shot sometime recently. now, all of a sudden. fucking hell man. i really don't know what to say.

look at you trying to upsell me. i think i'll pass, but i'm curious. what exactly do you sell? and better question, how and why are you selling supplements? how'd you get into that game?

idk, since i was young, i've always had two yearly dental and one yearly doctors appointment. i have the insurance, might as well use it. not when something goes wrong. bad habit creamy, maybe think twice on that. i'm not telling you what to do, but you ain't getting any younger. trust me, i've got a couple years on you, so use my advise as a guide. better to stay ahead of whatever might go wrong. when Chadwick Bosemen (black panther) died, i asked my doctor when the earliest i should get my prostate exam, and he said when i'm in my 50's. i already knew it was for later on in life, but again, you never know. i knew someone who got the exam done in their 30s because it ran in their family.

so about the bubble tea - some friends and i went to a japanese restaurant called Naruto 88 on Shang Chi's release day. i wanted to see if they had decent ramen. it was pretty damn good. i ordered spicy ichiraku(?), but the chef put WAY too much spice in there. I was paying the price the next day 😱🚽💥, but alongside the ramen I ordered strawberry milk bubble tea and it was delicious 😍🍓. it wasn't too sweet and i really liked the light milky texture of the tea. the bubbles still tasted like shit though. they always do. wish they would add flavor to them.
here's the place. check out the pics.

oh yea lol, you're supposed to hit the little ac button with the wavy arrows.

when it does get cold down here, i crank the temperature all the way to hot and put the defroster on until the windows are clear. then i just use regular ac with whatever temp keeps me warm enough.
think of that time as a learning experience 😅. ...do you remember how cold it was that day? don't tell me it was snowing outside.

---

so, the great thing about watching bball is that you're naturally going to want to replicate some of the stuff you see on tv. the pros use these moves for a reason. the trick is actually pulling them off, in game. making the shot helps too 😅. i do have a couple moves up my sleeve. credit to Dwayne Wade for those. he's the reason i was into bball as much as i was at that point in my life. my biggest weakness was my dribbling though 😣. could never perfect it and i blamed my height (6ft). YOU on the other hand, should've had that as a strength. being closer to the ground, the dribbling should've been easier. up against taller players, if good enough you'd be able to wiz around them. not to shoot and get blocked, but to allude and pass to open players. you definitely have your spot on the court, you just gotta recognize it. never to late to join to WNBA ya know. i'm sure they got a team repping kanada.

super con is just the name. they're all "Cons". but Super Con is the big one down here in miami. i think the biggest in FL is up in orlando. Mega Con or something. I actually haven't been to that one, but honestly, once you go to a decent sized Con, you've basically been to them all. fun experience with the right crew though 😉.

---

i ain't workin nowhere that requires a butler outfit. pay me $50 and hour and we'll talk. what does AYCE stand for? 😐 how is someone supposed to know AYCE means buffet? 🤔.

i'm sure the whole west side is filled with japanese centric restaurants. you probably have more ramen shops in your area than I do in all of south FL 😶. we have a couple asian grocery stores though. maybe I can ask a friend if he wants to browse and buy stuff. i'll be on the look out for whatever ramen they have. since i was young, i've been eating the mainstream crap 🤷‍♂️.


i gotta tell ya, i appreciate starbucks, but i can't stand in that line and pay those prices on the daily. i usually have my coffee setup at work, but just last week my Nespresso coffee machine came in. a friend at work talked me into it. WOW. coffee at the press of a button. shit's incredible. i buy my pods on amazon and just throw it in the machine. coffee in 1 minute.
what flavor does sakura even taste like? or is it an assortment of flavors? sounds seasonal too 😒.

i haven't touched anime in a while 😓. been more in a gaming mode recently. nah, didn't hear about op. gonna stick with the anime, but seems like i need to catch up sooner rather than later.. i'd like to be there when everything ends.

also the next chapter in the undertale series dropped 🤩🤩. the developer had a live stream celebrating the 6th anniversary of undertale and 2 years of deltarune ch1. at the end of the stream, the words "continue Deltarune Ch2?" and the chat went nuts 😂. the intro of the game was shown with a bit of gameplay and then the release date.. which was set for two days later 🤣. damn that was so much fun. it came out a week and a half ago? i just completed chapter 2 last night 😩. i can't wait for the next. i've been jamming to the music while typing all of this 😃.
Kilz Sep 19, 2021 2:22 PM
Sorry for the late, was busy

I don't play Animal Crossing, and no was helping my mom with her job since they moved in-person to online last year. Everything is back to in-person with precaution and mandates for the safety of the staff and students. Well, you are cheating and it does go against their term of service after all. They give you chances to stop what your doing and if not, you lose your account. Grandpa is doing it the legal way.

Damn, well that is expected from weddings, your time is used without knowing especially if you are helping out. Does Canada do DST?

Yup, it's a great game well depending on the person

It's on my watch/reading list on here, just didn't get around to it,

Nope, I haven't been to the theatres since 2019 before the shit hit the fan and no I haven't
troilus_05s Sep 5, 2021 8:59 AM
Heyy. I am doing pretty fine. How are you?
And sorry for the REALLY late reply!
Watching any interesting anime?
Kilz Aug 27, 2021 4:34 PM
Really well the Atari wasn't all that popular here with the limited games it had especially the infamous ET game. I gave it a try back in 2016 (when it was bare-bones) when it was released, I didn't like it that much. I picked it up again in late 2018. Was very active in 2019. I barely played throughout 2020 (COVID). This year I picked it up again because I started spoofing. Spoofing is a 3rd party cheating app that runs Pokemon Go, you can use an in-game joystick to walk around and teleport to any place around the world. The catch is you can potentially (and it has happened to other players) have your account suspended and after 3 strikes, permaban. So far *knock on wood* I haven't gotten a red warning notice. Because of spoofing,, I was able to do Community Day and Events from my home. I am currently level 39 and about halfway to reaching level 40 which is the level cap but they increased it to level 50 now. The kicker is you have to do special requirement along to getting the XP needed to level up and it not that easy unless your a veteran player who played since day 1.

Congrats on you friend and i figure you were busy but i see you logged in on the 19th and I thought i was going to get a reply guess not lol

Me? I've been playing Ghost of Tsushima (which i platium at midnight today and corrently waiting for the DLC of Iki Island to finish, On in all I'm doing great, you?
doeman Aug 22, 2021 9:48 PM


I'm Back 😤. It's been a hellish, grueling couple of weeks. I hope I don't have to go through anything like that again. Work has been ass 👺. Back-to-school has doubled our customer count and the delta variant has been "infecting" many of the employees, so they have to be placed on quarantine. I place "infecting" in quotes because some of these assholes tell HR they've "been in contact" with someone infected and by that rule we must quarantine them. Each employee gets a separate pool of sick time specifically for Covid. Up to 10 days worth, not including your regular days off, SO some of these fuckers were gone for two weeks. They can provide a Covid test, but even if they test negative, they still have to quarantine 🤷‍♂️. I hate it because you technically can't claim and prove someone is lying about their contact. On my end, I can only approve the Emergency Sick Pay (ESP) and move on. With how busy we've been and the lack of people showing up, I've had to do the job of 3 people. I stressed out my back like a week and a half ago and had to fill out an accident, incident report. I left early that day, called out the next and happened to have the 3rd day off. And we couldn't even ask other areas of the store for help because everyone else is going through the same thing. Fucking joke. You should hear the conversations I have with some of the people I work with. The ones you aren't "abusing" their ESP. We're all super disgruntled because we don't want to abuse the system in the same way, but at the same time there are plenty of people getting away with it. I'm sure of it. This one girl I know used up her ESP, regular sick time and PTO, THEN went on vacation to Colorado or wherever. She was complaining to me about how HR said that because she traveled, she needed to be placed on quarantine again, but because she didn't have any more hours to compensate, she "refused". Saying to me, "these idiots in HR think they can stop me from getting paid. I don't care if I traveled outside of the state, how am I supposed to get my money???". I looked at her in awe and just shrugged. I remember her disappearing for lengths on end, twice during the first Covid rising too. Coming back with sun tans and shit. Fucking cunt. She thinks she's fooling people, but she's not. She's just abusing the system that the company set for people who really do get infected and need that extra pool of hours to remain at home or god forbid, the hospital. It's just a crappy situation all around.
The back-to-school crowd is fizzling out now because school is starting up this week, plus all the people who were on quarantine are slowly coming back... with no more ESP to spare. Can't wait till they have other excuses to be off. We've also hired a bunch of fresh new people and I've been making it a personal mission of mine to train them myself, so they come into work with high standards and expectations. So yay, more hands on the floor 🙌!

But that's the long and short of how my time away has been spent. Been really tired lately because of the workload and when I'm off, I'm usually gaming or catching up with my shows and/or movies. Movies are coming in hot btw and I'm loving it! 😁 Thank God for AMC's movie pass 🙏. It's almost a chore keeping up with everything I want to see. Plus, I'm swapping between like 5 games 😓. Whatever I'm in the mood for.

How have things been at work for you since we last spoke? Have you truly been able to grasp what your work entails yet? Or are the training wheels still on?

Btw, that link with the motivational link expired or maybe it's blocked by a login? "Page not found". We've done exercises similar at work, but they deal with how you feel about Ikea. I forget how it goes exactly, it's been a long time since I've cared about that stuff. My everyday job doesn't really use any of it, despite some higher ups saying otherwise 🙄.

Have the fires toned down? I don't see it much in the news anymore. And speaking of, I started filtering the news out of my recommended videos section on youtube. Too much negative crap happening in the world right now and I choose to be selfish and ignore it all. It all started when the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Unreal at how fast it happened. Now that entire country is going to be thrown back decades in time. Who's going to trade with them? What about the little freedoms the people had there? What about the women? They can't even walk the streets without being in a burka anymore. Women who had any type of respectable job have been replaced by Taliban men and girls probably won't be able to go to school anymore. It's a fucking nightmare and it makes me sick to my stomach that this is all happening in broad daylight. But what can I do, right? Nothing. It sucks and I feel for them over there. Even the foreigners who are trapped and still just trying to get out. All of it just puts me in a depressingly bad mood 😔.

I eat whatever I want (yolo), but I WANT/NEED to eat healthier. I ordered pizza and brownies from Dominoes earlier today and had half of everything... My fat ass 🤢. I feel gross even now, all these hours later. So my stomach survives the daily brutal onslaught, I've been taking Probiotics and Daily Enzymes every day since last year. One tablet for each of my usual two meals every day. Helps me digest better. I also drop a teaspoon of benefiber in my drink for my nighttime meal. So long as that drink isn't something carbonated. I get by ok. I don't feel like a couch potato because I have the job to keep me active, but I could definitely have a better eating diet and do some real exercise, ya know? ☹

So, since I was young, I've had an addiction for sweet things. I blame my older cousin. When we were younger, she use to travel down here to Miami from Toronto (the same family I visited for my first snow boarding trip) and then we both set off to Jamaica. Every summer during elementary school. Because of her, I eat something sweet with Every meal. LoL, what did I say earlier, I order pizza and what? Brownies. It never fails. If I don't have something sweet, I get noticeably irritable. Because her father who also ate plenty of sweets, she developed cravings for sweets and then that crap leeched on to me. He eventually passed because of diabetes, years ago. I only have one memory of him, but because of him I try to tell myself to chill with all the sweets. It doesn't really work, but somehow I'm still here thankfully 🥺. Every yearly doctors appointment, my blood work comes back just fine 👍. Probably because I've always been active and drink lots of water? Idk.
(bubble tea is overrated 🥴)

Miami being the hot and muggy place that it is, yes people are angry drivers here. But I prefer that to the slow grandma alternative. I drive pretty fast, but when some asshole flies by me, I just tell myself, "perfect, someone else who won't get in my way". I used to get pissy when someone blew by me on the road because I "know" I'm going faster then the majority, so why pass me like that? I took it as I was the one driving slow. But whatever, somehow I passed that driving phase of my life. Thank God. One less thing to be stressful over, right?
A couple months ago, I was driving to Dunkin for brunch with a girl from work and she said that I drive with "intent" lol. First time I'd ever heard that one 😂. Some of my friends and family don't like the way I drive 😂.

"I tried to learn snowboarding once but the instructor was busy flirting w/ another instructor so I didn't get to learn properly."
fookin LOL

Have you seen Midsommar? I highly suggest you watch that film. No trailers, no research. Just watch it. It's on Prime if you have a sub.
https://www.justwatch.com/us/movie/midsommar
I only realized the other day the Florence was the star. She's blown up these last 2-3 years.
Ooh! Make sure you watch WandaVision and Loki too. Wanda is actually supposed to be the first one you watch, but it's fine. Falcon and Winter was my least favorite of the 3 completed shows thus far. Don't get me wrong, they're all worth watching, but the other two are really good. Especially how Loki ends. It sets up what I think the entire MCU will be dealing with for years to come 😱. It's that important!
Side note, I nabbed my Shang-Chi tickets last week 😆😆😆. I Can't Wait 😁🐉. And I've had several people at work tell me that the new Eternals trailer looks effing UHmazing. DON'T tell me anything. I don't want anything spoiled 👺☢. All I gotta do is get through these next 10 days and I can finally watch the next MCU movie for the new phase. Black Widow doesn't really count because it takes place in the past and doesn't progress the story.

I'm not into watching bball like I used to, but I play if I really wanna go outside and get some fresh air. I had some cheapy bball shoes that split open on me a couple months ago... I was playing on the court by myself mind you, but still felt super embarrassed. The tip of the shoe was flopping open and closed every time I walked. I never felt poorer 😱. All I was missing were some holes in my shirt and shorts. I've been using a pair of running shoes to play instead, but now that you bring up the subject I should really buy a pair of decent bball shoes. They've been invented for a reason, right?

---

Sorry to disappoint creamy, but I got nothing for you in regards to the girlies this time around. As mentioned at the beginning, work has been all work and no play these few weeks. I've barely seen either of them and when I do, it's strictly pleasantries. Then, back to work. There is this one girl who I've had a crush on for a long time though (I always have a story about some girl that's always out of reach 🙄)... She usually works overnight, as part of our LP team. If I'm leaving really late, sometimes I'll see her and we'll catch up and talk for awhile. One day last week, I ended up clocking out at 4AM 😭. The horror. I was finishing up some duties from my shift, but before I left I decided to help out the overnight crew in my area. They were shorthanded and I was feeling nice, so I stayed for a bit 🤷‍♂️. Worked in my favor because after I finally clocked at 4am, she was sitting in the receptionist office as usual and we ended up talking for an hour 🤩 (so I left at 5am instead 😐).
"but brent, if you like her that much and can hold conversations with her that easily, then why don't you ask her out somewhere?? stupid."
because, she has a 🤬 boyfriend. As usual. Strike another one off the list. The ones I have a crush on are always taken. Every time we talk, he comes up too. "I got blah blah blah for my bf" or "my bf this and that" or "my bf didn't want to watch *insert MCU show/movie here* with me"... Like, it's a reminder for me to not make a move on her. I appreciate when girls do that though. It's a subtitle, yet effective way to break a mans heart 💔, but I don't have to know the fucker exists every 10 minutes. I get it, you're in a relationship 👹.

You wanna know something weird? I got a text from a friend of mine 2 days ago. A girl who started working at ikea maybe two years ago. When I got promoted last year, I helped her move up as well. I recommended her to the visual designer department and she landed the position. She's super nerdy and has the same tastes we do, but I'm not particularly interested in her 🤷‍♂️. I just see her as a friend. Work friend really. We don't hang out of work or anything. That's it 🤷‍♂️. She texts me this passed Friday and asks me if I was going to this thing called SuperCon. It's a Miami comic book / anime / video game convention. I've been there twice already. It's a fun experience, but I've already had my fair share of cons between SuperCon and some others (including NY Comic Con). I wasn't sure how to respond, so I just said, "I don't have plans to, but I'm surprised they're allowing an in person event with cases rising. Hope masks are enforced 🤷‍♂️."
Didn't get a response back. Thought it was super weird, especially from her because she can get pretty talkative when you get her started... No "I was thinking of going but needed your advice on something", no "I was wondering if you wanted to go", no nothing. Just the question and my response 🤷‍♂️.
There's this really arrogant (and shameful) side of me that thinks she might have been asking me to go, but the way I responded completely shut her down? 🤷‍♂️ Idk. I'm probably going to be seeing her sometime this week at work because I work in the mornings and that's when she's around. So, we'll see what happens. (she's going to have to try harder than that if she wants to win my heart 😤💁‍♂️👑 hmph 😉)

oh good lord. It's called a buffet 🤣. Yes, we have many of them Cynthia. This is the land of the obese. Even when it's not a buffet, places here offer way too much food sometimes (ooh, this is something we've talked about before).
Wait wait wait. Is the owner making the employees wear maid and butler outfits? And they don't want to?
Quick anecdote - When my cousin and I went to go watch Black Widow, we stopped at a place by him that he says has the best ramen. I couldn't even make a decent comparison because I've never had real ramon before that. But holy shit, I went there and it changed my life. It tasted incredible 🍜. So much flavor in every sip. Some little mom and pop japanese restaurant. Japanese cooking in the back, couple of white kids who love Japanese culture out in the front serving and hosting. They had to say "irasshaimase!" every time someone walked into the place. I liked it a lot 🥰 and we're definitely going there again the next time we watch a movie up by him (this is Dale btw, Japan trip). Extra Spice Mayo flavor. The nostrils were in full drainage mode after that 😂😅.
Shang-Chi is down by me this time, but I don't think any of the ramen places will match where he took me. I've done a little research and asked around, but everywhere looks super mainstream. I'll let you know how that ends up turning out.

Zootopia was really good. It's actually getting a series on Disney+ early next year.
Did you see the Soda Pop movie? MAL has it rated pretty decently. I have Horiyama sitting on my comp, but don't know when I'll start. Also, OP is getting close to episode 1000... I want to catch up before then.. I want to be there live for that moment 😤.
And I hope you haven't given up on OP yourself yet??? 🧐

Still waiting on your replay :)

Yay! Congrats on starting 🎉 (she's growing up so fast 😭🤧). How was the first week 👩‍💼💲? Are you transitioning smoothly? Do you have someone to shadow or are you just being thrown into it?
***And regarding what you say about work later on in your reply - It sucked that your prior job was stressing you out like that. As much as I want to tell people in positions like that (including myself) to quit and find something "better", the reality is life ain't a fairy tale like that. I can't just quit and expect something to land in my lap. I hope you've got better days ahead of you. It's much better for me as opposed to when I first started my position. Not what I'd call a dream job, but tolerable most of the time. But hey, if you ever need to talk about anything, I'm here 💪***

And I appreciate your time replying as well 😁. It takes time, like 2-4 hours (edit: 5 and a half for this one..) for me to fully respond because I get distracted easily. Plus, I'm jamming to my music and it's guaranteed that I get lost to the rhythm and lose my train of thought while typing 😂.

This truly is unreal. So many places were in the process of reopening, but the Delta variant cases are skyrocketing in locations that typically don't have high vaccination rates... FL being one of them... We just had 21,000 reported positives cases only yesterday! Our highest since Covid even begun 😑. I know people at work who caught it recently and it was most likely the Delta version. One girl said she was bedridden for 3 weeks! Body aches, trouble breathing, vomiting, the works. Now several cities are reinstating mask mandates. Our governor (one of Trump's buddies) is going out of his way to punish or prevent city officials and district reps that have high case numbers from making masks mandatory. Way too many people in FL are fucking stubborn and in denial. They won't and don't want to wear masks for whatever their petty reasons being. It's primarily because of that group, numbers are shooting up.
How is it over there now? Has Trudeau reversed any openings? Or has your city keeping the cases under control?

Oh? Are you the culinary expert in the house 😏? What type of 5 star meals do your guests expect? How diverse is the menu? Filet mignon, grilled lobster simmered in wine sauce, savory souffle's? I can make eggs and warm up some canned soup.

Yea, it seems like the links I posted surpassed the border of the comment box, but it seems to only be a problem while in com-to-com. On your profile it looks fine 🤷‍♂️. Next time I link you, I'll do it like this.

yummy!

When I get in my car now, the temperature on the dashboard reads 105 degrees sometimes. I can't waste a single minute outside in that sun. I literally b-line it straight to my car, open the driver door and passenger door behind the driver side. Sit down, start the car and use the control center to open all the windows and crank the AC to maximum. Doing this exhausts all the heat in the car pretty quickly. After about 10 seconds I push that backseat door closed while I'm sitting in the driver seat and then close my door, wind up all the windows and put my shades on. Then while the AC is trying it's damn hardest to cool down the car, I'll pull down my sun visor. This is what I do every single time I get into the car. I have to. If I don't, the heat will melt me down before the AC even gets a chance to keep me cool. Sometimes it's so hot that the AC's cold air warms up before it reaches my face 😓. It'll probably take around 5 minutes for the car to cool down to a reasonable temperature, but let me tell you, those 5 minutes ain't a fun time.

The smoke from the wildfires crossed the entire nation from west to east, but didn't really go south. NYC had some of their worst air pollution in history earlier this week because of the fires and guess what? I guarantee you, next year we'll be breaking those records again. Happens every year...
I just saw some news clips on youtube earlier today saying that some of the athletes in Tokyo competing in the sun (tennis, long distance running, etc) are collapsing of heat stroke 🌞)

Yea, I've seen snow a couple times already. First time was for my 18th birthday actually. I went to Toronto to visit some family, but to also snowboard. I was dying to see it, but I wanted to get the full experience. Not chance it on a trip somewhere and hope flurries would fall from the sky 🙄. I had a blast. I always wondered how snowboarding compared to skateboarding. I skated for a couple years. It's not wildly different, but balancing yourself on ice while LOCKED into a board is something you gotta get used to 🏂. Quick story - Something really scary happened during that snowboard trip. I was having fun the entire time. Falling on my ass, getting back up and trying again and again to conquer that kiddy hill 😤💪. Don't worry, I prevailed by the end of it, but I had a bright idea for my last slide down the hill. You see, there was a section at the bottom that had just enough snow built up to form this makeshift ramp. I took the conveyor up to the top of the kiddy section and aligned myself with the makeshift snow ramp at the bottom (I wasn't too good at turning yet 🤷‍♂️. I was having fun just going in straight lines, thank you 👺). Off I went! I get to the bottom and my skateboard instincts kicked in. I slid onto the pile of snow and when I reached the apex, I jumped with the board to catch some air and I caught a little of it. However. Upon landing, the front half of the snowboard pierced the snow on the ground first at this awkward downward 45 degree angle and wedged itself in there real tight. And because my freaking feet are locked into the board, my body couldn't dislodge from it. So picture that, the board is stuck pointing downward into the snow at a 45 degree angle and I'm still attached. With the force I hit the snow, there was a bit of whiplash with my body, but what scared me the most were my knees. Because of that angle, they were dangerously close to bending in a way I didn't want them to bend 😱. After the whiplash I quickly tossed my body so as to land sideways on the snow and just sat there wondering how close I was to having a really bad accident. That moment was always stuck with me.
I went snowboarding again in Colorado back in 2017 with some friends. My ass knew to be careful that time around. Luckily, I don't recall there being any makeshift ramps to even try it again, so thank god. Here's one of the pics from my insta.
Colorado snowboarding
What do you guys like to do in the snow around there? I feel like you're a really good ice skater 😉. I can sense it. You lap people around that skating rink, dontcha?

Well, aside from potentially getting some time off from work (though it may be miserable if there's no power), the lead up to a hurricane breaks up the monotony of everyday life. Everything changes, everyone switches into prep mode. It just feels exciting.
No one can force you to leave or protect yourself, but we do have tips and guidelines to adhere to. There's the usual food, water and supply prep. And then you can board up the house or place shutters. Back in the day, shutters weren't that common, so everyone had to board the windows up with wood. Now, we live in a time where installing permanent shutters is almost the standard. Pay that one time fee and all you gotta do is go outside the day before a hurricane hits and close/lock the shutters.

I don't recall how people reacted at the start of covid in Japan, but I believe you. People in America are entitled and rash. That being said, countries all over the world now, Japan included, have people protesting against masks and lockdowns because they're sick of it. I don't know what to tell them. The more people don't comply with masks and resist getting vaccinated, the more cases will spring back, hence longer covid lifestyles 🤷‍♂️. It's basic math, man. Deep down, I want to think that there are a few handful of people out there causing just enough ruckus to get the stubborn & ill-informed to follow along in their mutiny. As if their stubbornness serves the greater good. And all these sheep do is follow along and complain that things aren't getting better quicker 🙄. Humanity is a joke sometimes.

Vancouver getting hit with a "big one"?? You have major fault lines over there? The only "big" earthquake I have on my radar right now is yellowstone. God help us if a major earthquake goes off there and sets off one of those underground super volcanoes because that will set in motion life ending events across the globe.
Here's a 5 min vid explaining it. Sorry creamy, but looks like you won't be able to outrun that one. I'll be swimming to South America when it goes off 🏊‍♂️.

Yea, The Witcher has one season so far on Netflix, with season two coming out later this year, but the franchise originally started out as Polish novels. They've been translated to English over the years and then recently adapted into audio books. I'm currently on book 5 of 8. The series didn't gain popularity until the games came out though. Lol, The Witcher is in every medium apparently. They have 3 games so far, but the caveat is the games take place after the events of the novels, however they are not canon. Either way, it's because of the games that I got into the series in the first place. The third game, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt has countless awards 😑. I had to jump on board. I've had TW3 purchased on my PlayStation for like 3 years now and still haven't gotten to it because my stubborn ass has to experience the novels first, THEN play the games because technically that's the right order, ya know? If I'm going to play this legendary third game, I want to prime myself just right before starting it. Truth be told, I already watched a silent playthough of the first Witcher game on youtube. It didn't feel like anything that happened in that game spoiled anything for the novels, so I started watching The Witcher 2 game, but 20 minutes in and they started talking about events that happened "in the past". Not "The Witcher 1 video game past". Like, maybe something that could've happened in the novels. Something that I haven't listened to yet with the audible books. It's funny how things work out though because I put off watching the second game a couple weeks ago, so that I can catch up with the books. In that time, I've been lucky enough to purchase an Xbox Series X and now I can actually PLAY the game. The Witcher 2 is not available on Playstation, just Xbox and PC (mine can't run it). And of course, it went on sale like 2 weeks ago for $2.99 🤑, so I nabbed it. To make the deal even sweeter, CD Prokekt Red, the developer of the games said that The Witcher 3, a 5 year old game at this point, will be getting a free current generation update at the end of this year to coincide with the release of season two of The Witcher series on Netflix! Theoretically, that's plenty of time for me to listen the remaining novels, play TW2 and watch season one of the series before Nov/Dec. Sorry, that was a lot of Witcher lore you probably don't care about, but that's how everything is falling into place for me right now 😄. Btw, I had to check myself, but fyi, the Witcher series on Netflix is a loose retelling of the novels.

Nah, I was saying that despite me trying to think about Marvel while in the shower, work will somehow still take over the brain. And yes, I also loved her performance! Her character is super cute too 🥰 ("such a poser" 😂). Did you see the post credit scene?

I wouldn't say I'm "consistent", but I have my phases. I'm actually trying to get back into a light workout routine every night now. And yea, it was a crossfit class now that you mention it. I don't mind the work, but committing to a class is a bit much for me. I'd rather do these things on my own time and when I'm in the mood. Nothing beats shooting hoops though. Even if by myself. I'll go to the park sometimes and blast music on my portable speaker while practicing my shot. I prefer cardio over working out to be honest. What color is the hula hoop and how many did you buy? The more hoops, the more controlled your wiggles gotta be 😂, but I'm sure your core will get a good workout from it. Look into belly dancing as well 💃✨. You might like that.

Man, that shit sounds boring af 😂. You're holding back. Forget holidays with just days off. As a proud citizen of Canada, what days of the year are you looking forward to??? We got Valentine's Day, the spring break period, Saint Patrick's Day, Cinco de Mayo, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. Those are the major ones I can think of that the US as a whole celebrates more or less. They're reasons to go out, celebrate and spend money. Murica's gotta have their denizen's supporting that all-important economy, amirite 💰?

That's actually an interesting and realist perspective. What IF she did leave... I don't have her number or instagram or anything. Granted it'd be possible to just ask one of her friends for her number, but then I'd look like a desperate wimp who couldn't confront 👺. Duly noted. As I mentioned before though, I'm still not technically looking for anything right now. I like the freedom, but it'd be a shame if I didn't become closer friends with her. She is nice company from what I've been able to gauge thus far. In any case, this other girl who works in her area has been weirdly friendly with me lately 😶. She's been with the company as long as I have and I'd go as far as calling us "work friends", but it... usually... stopped there. How do I explain this. "Almost" every time I've seen her in the last 2-3 weeks, we've been having longer that usual conversations. Longer than normal for just "work friends". I don't have her number or anything. Strictly work. 2 days ago, we spoke for about 20 minutes while my team was running the closing duties. I was helping them until I saw her. I just wanted to communicate where we were at and how my team could colab with hers for some end of day priorities. One subject led to another and there we were, just talking about... stuff 🤷‍♂️. Ok then, nothing too out of the ordinary there, at least for recent times, but then she comes back to my area to tell me that she was leaving work 😦. I was in the middle of something and she caught me off guard when she said that. My walk kind of stuttered and I looked at her a little confusingly, not sure of what she meant when she said that. Like, was she saying that she and her team was leaving or was she telling ME that SHE was leaving for the night?? This has never happened before. Why would it? If you're done for the day... then just go? Lol, she had no reason to tell me this. At all 🤷‍♂️. Also awkwardly, when she said that, she started slowly walking away while glancing back at me like 3 times. My brain was so into work and it felt like it happened so fast that I said something dumb like, "Ok, see ya!". The fuck. That response has been bothering me a little these last two nights 😅. And I'm not gonna lie, she's been on my mind a little more than usual because of all this. What am I saying, she's never been on my mind before any of this 🤷‍♂️. Anyway, she's pretty cute. Korean. That Asian persuasion can be deadly mang 🥵🔥🐍. She's into the whole Japan and anime scene, so right off the bat we have common interests, but I need to see what's going on with her. I don't know if she's just being friendlier than usual or my receivers are registering the wrong signals. There's a science to this creamy! I mustn't rush anything, less I damage the relationship 👺.

LOL, the first name I went to was Sakura 🙄. I think it's beautiful and like that it means cherry blossom, but it's probably so overused in Japan 🌸. There's also Yuki, which means snow. I learned those things from anime. I dunno how I feel about naming my child after I learned something from anime 🤔. Plus, unless she's half Japanese, I'd feel a little weird naming my daughter that. Would she even like her name knowing that's it's Japanese, if she isn't Japanese? Hmm.

I think a young Japanese boy won the gold medal for skateboarding. Yea, this year is weird because of the pandemic. I wonder how many people are winning medals because competition has been thinned? Like, this prodigy USA gymnast Simone Biles pulled out of every competition she enrolled in and it's giving other people a chance to get golds now. She usually nabs them. The media is eating that story up and she claims that the pressure of this year has been getting to her so she dropped out 🤷‍♂️. A friend of mine was saying she should be penalized because that's a spot wasted on the USA gymnast team. She should've dropped out before even going. I think he's partly right. I mean, there's no way of know how you're going to feel in the future, anything can happen. But I think she forfeited after her first competition. She landed her triple flip spin thing like trash and all of a sudden she doesn't feel good. Idk, I don't really care tbh 😅.

I don't have any tattoo's, but my cousin does. Something Zelda related. Either way, I don't think we were going to go to any public hot springs, but shiieettt, if some Japanese girly girls wanted to hit one up, they'd be going with me only while his ass can sit in the tiny private one back at the Ryokan alone 😂🧖‍♂️. We haven't had that conversation yet about what to do if Japan is a no-go next year 😞. The time is drawing near where we should start planning ahead and reserving some of these hotels/ryokans. Believe it or not, the Ryokan we got last time was like our third choice because so many of the 5 star locations were sold out 😱! We actually wanted to reserve this place that was north of Kyoto, straight up in the mountains, sharing hot springs with the baboons and shit. Rural af. It's like in anime when the kids get to go on an excursion to train or study in those super country hotels for something big upcoming. Alas, we didn't get a chance to book anything like that. Our place was located in Kyoto near a river. In a way it wasn't that bad because the cities' right there, ya know?
Hell no, those hostess clubs are a waste of money imo. Imagine paying someone to flirt with you. I know all of that because I saw a documentary(?) on them years ago. Probably during one of my phases where I watched a lot of Japan related media on youtube. Also saw an anime based on hosts and hostesses. Forgot was it was called though.

Yea, it's easy to think something is irrelevant, but OP is pretty good at shoveling in canonical content into what may seem like 90% filler. I could've sworn I added Tokyo Revengers to my list. Just did.

I'm sure the prices of Marvel shirts (or anything really) are 3x more at Disney World than anywhere else. I have a couple websites I buy shirts from and some brick and mortar's I can hop into. Hell, Walmart has a decent selection of Marvel shirts.

Monsters at Work is a series. It takes place after every other piece of Monsters content. It's actually pretty good. Disney+ is doing a pretty damn good job at simulating the movie experience onto the small screen. I'll give them that.
So, I can't remember if I said this before, but it's really hard for me to watch some of those new Pixar/Disney Animation movies. They're geared towards kids too much. I can't enjoy them... Too childish and unfunny. I miss the days of movies like Shrek. A movie that's for kids, but definitely also for adults 😄.
