Right now I'm feeling: Amazingly relieved and extremely tired (I'll explain later)

Right now I'm listening to: Utada Hikaru-- another great J-Pop artist

These days I'm still reading: The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. A kick-ass fantasy novel, and The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan.

Any Time is Good for Pizza!

At least that's what I tell myself! It's about 12 midnight and I just pulled a steaming hot sausage and pepperoni pizza from my microwave convection oven. Ahhh... smells good doesn't it? As hard as it is to find decent frozen pizza over here, Izumiya carries these little gems for a measely $3.50. Sprinkle some frozen sausage (which incidentally looks like Kibble) on top and you've got gormet eatin' in 15 minutes. Though I think my stomach will launch a rebellion soon, I've been eating that greasy pizza for three days in a row.

Today was the first day in a long time that was a decent day to do clothes. I went to Izumiya to buy more clothes hangers, even. Haven't washed clothes in so long that I ran out. Been wearing mis-matching socks for days. I opened the curtains of my room this morning (about 12:30 when I rolled out of bed) and was blinded by sunlight. After my eyes adjusted, I saw cherry blossoms! Cherry blossoms!! I couldn't believe it! Spring is finally here. Ahhh. The temperature gets warmer and the weather more bearable, but the true herald to spring is the sakura, cherry blossoms. I wish all the streets back home had cherry blossoms lining them. The bum thing about cherry blossoms is that they only last a week or two then fall off. Hanami, cherry blosssom viewing parties, are held everywhere by the Japanese and it's a very big deal for them. Can't wait to take my camera out when they're in full-bloom, they really are quite a sight and I will miss them tons when time comes for me to head back to America. I wonder if they'd grow anywhere? Hmmmm. I heard they have them in DC, but will they grow in So. Cal? Let's find out, shall we?

I've been experimenting with two programs I downloaded off the web, Macromedia Fireworks and Dreamweaver. I've been playing around with HTML page layers. I never knew HTML pages could have layers!! If you haven't found the hidden layer yet, you don't wander around with your mouse enough! I gots some wild ideas for my front page which include layers. Those two programs are very powerful. Check 'em out if yer inclined.
