Asian Dramas/Films/Anime I’ve Seen

by: Raine

(The Princess’ Man’s first kiss.)

I started this list out of curiosity. How much drama do I ACTUALLY watch?  It’s a scary amount of hours when I look at it! Here’s the sad part: I hope to add more. Much more.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. I will update it as often as I can.

I have listed the title of the drama/film/anime, the year it was filmed and the number of episodes it has. Title (Year) (# of Episodes)

(Listings in Red I absolutely adore.)

(Listings in Italics I gave up on.)

(Antique Bakery fun; Nodame and Chiaki rehearsing in Nodame’s pigsty…)

Nails and the Modern Woman

by: Raine

I don’t know about the Dark Ages, but the modern woman has a serious preoccupation with her nails. In this globalized statement I include myself (or perhaps  base it on myself). But as demonstrated by the innumerable establishments devoted to nail care, beautification, “gaudification” and mutilation that there are in the United States alone (over 300,000), its safe to assume that nails are quite the rage amongst the fashionable woman.

So no sane person would get acryllics like this, but that's still pretty frickin' cool!

The Cheek Kiss Gone Wrong: A Miami Girl’s foray into the Awkward Greeting Shuffle.

by: Raine

How its done!

As a denizen of Miami, born and raised, the kiss on the cheek has been a staple of my everyday life. When I meet someone new, I smile, maybe offer a hand…and then I give them a kiss on the cheek. Albeit, most of the time  its more of a brush on the cheek, but a kiss nonetheless. On my way out the door, I make the rounds, give and receive many cheek kisses and go off on my merry way.
