This past weekend became one of the best weekends I've had in a while. Which may be lame to say, because apart from doing fashion art homework, I spent the majority of it watching ALL THREE SPIDER MAN MOVIES.
My friend Carla thinks I'm crazy for watching all 3 back to back, but I did have several hours in between all. AND I MADE IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES.
For example, the usher from the 2nd movie that stopped Peter from interrupting Mary Jane's show is THE SAME guy from the restaurant scene where Peter tries to propose to MJ. And as much as people already knew this, I totally didn't, so world let me have this one!
Oh, and in the first movie, in the scene where Spider Man first starts becoming a big thing and people are being interviewed about him, one of the guys is the guy who does the Fiber One commercials, Ajay Mehta. CRAZY I KNOW.
And when I was done, I had this brilliant idea to make a low budget super hero webisode series! It'll be a combination of Monty Python and Star Trek and everything else that matters in this world!!!! I'm pretty excited. This has fashion relevance as I will purposefully [probably] try to make the tackiest best costumes ever.
But on to other equally important news!
1. Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone SPLIT.
2. I have terrible cellphone pictures of my fashion art homework (that is still not done yikes!)
3. I had my first bagel at Brooklyn Bagel a really long time ago.
Location: 286 8th Ave., Chelsea, NY 10001
4. I mentioned earlier that my mother went to Japan for a little vacation. Well, my father, who is usually exhausted after work made supper a few nights and I managed to snag a pic of yesterday's dinner!
He's super picky about food and presentation because he's worked as a restaurant chef all his life. And being that he's a sushi chef, we had this whole fish dish (on the right), along with some lotus roots and pork cutlets. I couldn't finish it all, but hey, that's what leftovers are for! Food is a wonderful thing.
5. OH BUT SPEAKING OF MY MOTHER GOING TO JAPAN.
I've decided she can actually read my mind. Or we have a telekinetic connection. Or it's just a mother daughter thing. But remember when I mentioned before about craving apple chips and then my mother buying them?
Well, here's an eerier story! Whilst my mother was gone, you all know my camera broke. Well, I didn't tell my mother and I didn't plan on telling her until after she got back. I did think about emailing her, thinking maybe cameras are cheaper in Japan and therefore better to get it there. But I decided not to since I didn't want to bother her all the way in another country.
Well, I came home today and my mother was unpacking. AND LO AND BEHOLD, A NEW CAMERA CAME OUT OF HER LUGGAGE.
AND YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. It's AWESOME. My bulky little Olympus with it's 6 megapixels (I always edited the pictures to make them presentable) had nothing on this baby. It's light weight, sleek, has a big screen, and 14.1 megapixels. I AM IN A NERDY HEAVEN (that kind of heaven where watching star trek and having a new camera is ideal).
And the cherry on top?
One of my favorite Japanese actors does the advertising for it!
*Note: That picture was taken with the new camera!
I barely have to edit these images now!
I got snap happy and took some pictures of the false eyelashes I requested from Japan.
Then I went to the kitchen to make tomorrow's lunch and breakfast (I've been good about that lately).
Finally after dinner, my sweet tooth told me it was time for sugar. So naturally, I photographed some sweets my mother brought back from Japan (Note: I didn't eat all of these!)
I love cute Japanese packaging!
And I also love the juxtaposition of cellphone pictures to new camera pictures.
If I didn't tire you guys with my overall excitement and random stories, then you are a brave warrior! But alas, I must go and finish my sociology paper!
Good day everyone!
