Yippie Yi Yo

I just found out that R. Kelly started the group Public Announcement. They, sans Mr. Show Biz, were responsible for the 1998 hit "Body Bumpin' (Yippie Yi Yo)." I remember having bought the CD single, partly for its cover, where every member had a funny metallic blue body suit, complete with something akin to matching ski goggles.

Haircut photo

There has been a request for haircut pictures.

Normally, I don't cut people out of pictures, but Kira and Alex were all "DELETE! UNTAG!" that entire night, so I cropped them (but not my love for them) out. That's Kira's little prince, the friendly and pocketable Ramses, a Chihuahua + Italian Greyhound mix. But in this picture, he looks, as Joe said, sinister. And there's me, tending to him, with my new haircut. Which Joe apparently doesn't like. Is it the bangs? Oh well, I look youthful! And my life, as well as this blog, is all about preserving my youth.

Every morning, on my way to the train station, I stop at my house. My mom makes me lunch!

Sometimes she makes rice-based lunches, sometimes bread-based. Today was a turkey-herb sandwich with popcorn, and a banana that is not pictured. She makes lunches for Mordecai, too, but he gets a Spiderman container.

Haircut inspirations

On Sunday morning, I got my haircut. It matches my piano lessons, also inspired by Nodame.

I had been looking forward to a haircut for a long time; I debated between looking like Franziska von Karma (too much like Victoria Beckham) and my second favorite Seventeen model, Oishi Mitsuki (already did that last winter in Japan). But I wanted to extend my Nodame-mania to my appearance, and somewhat unexpectedly, Suri Cruise pushed me towards this direction.

The younger I look, the happier I am, because life back on the north side in the new apartment is forcing me to behave more adult-like than ever.

In the near future, I will become a graduate student. In that same future, I will be a TA. So I decided to try to minimize my presence on the Interwebs, and simultaneously renew things on my blog. Here are some new colors, and hopefully some new posts.
