    Come on this has to be a joke! Why would anyone walk out of the house wearing something like that?

    okay, maybe my shoulder pads weren’t QUITE this big, but almost… and then imagine it paired with ABS — it’s a term my hair stylist friend coined in the 80s (or was it the 90s?) that stood for Asian Bang Syndrome.
    : D

    the big poofy bangs sprayed to withstand in 30 knot winds… made popular in the 80s, maybe the asian girls kept doing it into the 90s or something…

    cool shades were also requisite. just saying… i had oliver peoples glasses with fitted clip-on shades… omg, i’m blushing with embarrassment!

finished The Wind Blows… it was very very good. having an aunt who suffered from Early Onset Alzheimer\’s at the age of 50, who suffered from the disease for 20+ years (19 years spent in a nursing facility) – i could very much relate to the hardships. the brief moment of clarity shown in the last episode is something i actually experienced with my aunt, though she wasn\’t able to speak to me – as i was talking about her daughters (my cousins) and their children (her grandchildren), telling her how well they were doing, how well she raised her daughters… she suddenly opened her eyes, and clutched my hand tightly.

then a tear fell as she looked at me, telling me she was understanding what i was saying… it was amazing. i think i told this story before, and again i\’ll state that i did not have the heart to tell my cousins about her clarity. it would\’ve broken their hearts, as they had to endure 19 years of their mother\’s progressive demise into the depths of alzheimer\’s… it was of some comfort to them knowing (believing) that their mother was not aware of her condition.

but truly, the person is trapped inside a body that won\’t respond to their wishes – they do lose the ability to talk, walk, eat, etc…

i like that this drama brings these realities of the disease to light. it is educational, as well.

One Spring Night ep 12…
just a RANT about the misogynistic Fathers (both), ex-boyfriend, and even the \”soon-to-be\” ex-brother-in-law… KUDOS to the drama for addressing these issues for women.

    and i could’ve driven to Vancouver from Seattle so easily (2.5 hour drive)… he was apparently doing auditions for his company’s trainee recruitments, it seems.

    *Someone is at your door asking for the card* If I’d known, I would have tagged you. I saw it announced on his instagram awhile back. I was kind of hoping for a Colbert/Rain dance off part 2.

is it just me, or is The Wind Blows ploy that the wife\’s so-called makeup is actually fooling her husband… i mean really… her voice and it\’s only her nose that\’s different?

after yesterday, today i had to rewatch ep 10 of The Light in Your Eyes again…
i just LOVE the youthful images cast next to the elders while riding the bus at the ocean, and the soundtrack was so moving and perfect. the first time watching it, my eyes misted and my heart became so warm and fuzzy…
the second time, i was sobbing.
so beautifully done, the whole episode — it’s breaking my heart but i’m so invested in all these characters, i am also loving the overwhelming sadness…
my beautiful aunt suffered for 20 years from this disease, and there was a moment near the end when i visited her that suddenly she responded by clasping my hand tightly…
she was letting me know that she was listening and knew that i was there!
the realization, for those afflicted, is almost worse then being lost totally within the disease…

    *Sigh* for the ending….. D.O look so mature in this movie and now I know why Park Hye Soo choose to drop AoY 2 to focused and prepare this movie. She need so many thing to learn, specially the tap dance.

      my husband found it online… a bootleg copy with arabic subs with english subs over… both in white type so sometimes reading the english subs were difficult at times… and then, when the americans were speaking english, the original movie had hangul subs, which were under the arabic subs with english subs on top….

okay, this is why i am so happy that we (me, in seattle) are yet again experiencing another snowstorm tonight…

    I’m in the midwest and this is so accurate I don’t even know where to begin. I went to the same school for 15 years, and in that time, we had probably 4-5 winters in that time were snow was a few feet deep, but the only time we ever had a snow day was once when I was in kindergarten and it was just too cold.

    2

      ah, but the difference is…

      seattle has HILLS and we get WET SNOW which turns to ice at night, then snows again, more heavy snow and it’s just treacherous with 6″, much worse with more… i have over a foot now.

      I’ve always been curious about that. When you get so much everything can’t close down all the time. I’d love more snow,love it, but not sure I could do the midwest’s winters.

        i agree, the midwest winters and snow are SO COOOOLLLLDDDD!!!!!

        here in the pacific nw it snows and stays around the 30s, with very few exceptions when it stays under freezing for a week – tho it’s fun when it does!

          So here’s the thing. I don’t find the cold unbearable until it goes below zero. Single digits are when I start adding layers. Below freezing = Hat time.

          I may be broken. Also, I hate the heat. Anything above 73 is just unseemly. Especially if there’s humidity.

          2

            i’m with you, i LOVE 72° weather! above that, i’m hiding inside or fanning myself incessantly…

            I just get so angry in the heat because I’m so uncomfortable. Cold I can deal with – lots of layers and warm drinks and excuses to sit by a fire. There is no escape from the heat.

      And unlike the midwest and other places that get more snow, PNW isnt as equipped to deal with the snow.

      1

        Oh for sure, and I totally understand that. I mean, if you don’t have the same resources to deal with snow it makes a huge difference, and it’s definitely safer to stay inside when you aren’t able to deal with it. I just find the fact that I think two feet of snow is no big deal whereas west coasters are in awe of three inches very amusing.

          we go nuts because it’s so fun and RARE that we get a good dump of snow = enough to play, sled, ski, make snowmen, etc. in…

          and if for any reason the weather in winter gets up to 60-65°, you’ll find crazy joggers out in running shorts and sometimes tank tops trying to soak up the little offering of sun…

          seattle is rather kooky, i admit.

          but we have HILLS and driving down on snow/ice is impossible, tho people still try like idiots when the STREET CLOSED signs are at the top of each hill…

            I totally get the fear with the hills. Despite living in a flat state, my mom’s house is on top of a hill and driving up or down it in winter wasn’t an option if it hadn’t been salted and cleaned. I can only imagine it’s 100 times worse where it rains or melts and freezes. I have heard stories of people trying to drive down your hills.

            I saw saw someone in shorts last week after the temps moved out of the negatives. And a woman in open toed flats with bare legs. I’m pretty sure the snow drives people here insane. Now we’re firmly in the 20s so scarves, hats, gloves are optional and shorts are spotted on occasion. Granted, when the wind starts blowing off the lake all bets are off. I realized that Hell freezing over would still be a tortuous experience. My eyeballs hurt the other day when it was like -10 and I forgot a hat.

            it’s the “transplants” that can’t handle seattle snowy driving… we who grew up here know how to do it safely.
