Thanksgiving Starts Tomorrow At 3:00
Me: stuffing, something desserty, meatballs
Kimberly: fried okra, ham
Eda: samosas and chicken skewers (satay)
Kira: vegetables and dip
Tiffany: vague potatoes
Lindsay (arriving later): drinks and something dessertish
Emily (not physically present): the spirit of pie
We still need bread, crackers, cheese, maybe more drinks.

Last night, I spent some quality time at Daiso*, then got myself a half-bottle of good wine, promising myself a nice evening of relaxation after doing some much-needed tidying up. I'd originally planned to do productive stuff for an hour or so, or not past 9, but then it was after 10 by the time I finally finished cooking (I cooked! VICTORY IS MINE!) and settled in. Hmmm, what to watch? I skimmed through my [enormous] folder of unwatched movies and shows, thinking I wanted to watch something light, and randomly picked Kindan no Koi
Oh, the lols! I wasn't expecting much (it's a BL myuvie, so...), but it actually provided even more amusement than I'd hoped for. As in, I nearly spit out a mouthful of wine at the final dramatic moment when the Jealous Character resorts to violence.
Reasons You Should (or Shouldn't) Watch This:
- 2nd-string myu-boys, i.e. the not so hot ones (there's the Atsushis from tenimyu, and the main guy is... I can't be bothered to look him up, but he's got a Nose);
- the budget allowed for exactly five actors: the main guy, his boss, the boss's two sons, and the manager;
- camera angles carefully orchestrated so that the actors never actually have to touch lips, it just vaguely looks like they might be kissing;
- the most ridiculous-looking writhing from a guy who is supposedly about to give head to another guy;
- the only female presence in the movie is a dress form, which makes no sense because the main character is a designer -- of men's shirts;
- the love interest being deceived by a bad photoshopping job (yes, seriously!);
- the world's most obvious spycam ever, which the stupid character never noticed in spite of the fact that it's sitting in the middle of a bouquet of flowers on his desk, inches from his nose;
- an ending almost as ridiculous as the one in Boy's Love
, falling short only because it doesn't involve carting a dead body across Tokyo;
- it'll only waste and hour and ten minutes of your time!
There's also incestuous desire, if that's your thing, and an obligatory pool scene or two, and an evil megane character who smirks and leers and seduces the two teenaged brothers. So yeah, it was silly as hell, but somehow (maybe it's the wine talking) it came out more amusing than painful for me.
* BECAUSE KICHIJOUJI HAS A DAISO ONCE AGAIN! *unreasonably happy about this* It's the swankiest-looking 100en shop I've ever been in. It seriously doesn't look like one at all, what with the pretty lighting and the nice layout. Oh, and Eda, they have half an aisle of fake eyelashes! :D (No coloured ones, though, I think)
