Yippee, we've got a Stormopalypse on our hands. The damn thing is shaking the walls as I speak, and it hasn't even made landfall yet. The lights keep flickering and I can't seem to log onto my work computer, which means the power in my office (about five miles from here) is probably down. (My office complex has shitty wiring, anyway. The power goes out there if someone yawns too hard).

I maintain a very basic-level account with my old dialup ISP. I looked up the access number earlier, I might need it. (I have the ability to use my phone as a mobile hotspot, but that drains the battery fast).

I've got every computer-like thing I have on constant charge (not the iPad, it's useless without wifi). Also a DVD player - region-locked, unfortunately. My old region-jailbroken one seems to be nonfunctional. (And I wanted to watch concert vids if we lost power. Phooey).

Hopefully, this will be all over with tomorrow. I'd like to go back to normal life, thanks. Also, I like electric power, double thanks. (Geez, with all the tech we have, you'd think they'd come up with a more efficient way of delivering power than the same vulnerable line technology that's been in use since the '20s).

Oh, and I found this amusing: Apparently, the one place on the planet where Gangnam Style wasn't a hit was Japan. Why? Japan expects its Korean vids to be full of pretty people, because they think Koreans are prettier than them. (Um, are they not aware that Alice Nine and the Gazette reside in their country?)

I hope the storm is not that strong, like those scary ones we see on TV these days. Stay safe~ :)

Apparently, most Japanese people are blind that's why they don't notice them? -_-

I find it terrifying. >.>; I was glad to read on Tumblr that the storm has left you, though!

To be honest, generally speaking I find Korean women prettier than the Japanese ones (remember, generally :P), but I think Japanese men are prettier than Koreans. >.>; And, anyway, there are plenty of pretty women in that video. XD

I got some intel Gaze knows of Gangnam style and it has been played on their private parties. I find this crazy amusing. :''D
Other than that, I generally find Korean men and women sexier than Japanese. The cute and pretty stuff is a-okay, but pretty boys were my thing when I was 16. :'D But durdur, silly Japs, you have plenty of pretty. (And to add to the silly, it's trendy to draw eye-bags under your eyes, because of reasons and Korea. Go figure.)

STAY SAFE omg. 3: It must be scary!
