Still on a Star Wars kick I am

mini lightsaber from McDonalds. =)

While digging through my drawer full of t-shirts (that I hardly ever wear), I found this Star Wars gem that I bought at Super7 nearly 2 years ago. I damn near forgot that I had it! I’m still on a bit of a Star Wars kick, especially since I found out that the SF Giants are having a Star Wars event on September 4! All the seats in the Star Wars section are sold out, but Standing Room tickets are still available. BUT, I don’t have anyone to go with so… 😦

I’m not much of a sports fanatic, but I do enjoy going to games (even though I’ve only been to one Giants game… x__x). I’d rather see a sports event live instead of watching one on TV because, to me, that’s just BORING. I think the atmosphere at a game makes it more fun to watch, plus the food is nummy. I just wish my friends would be more interested in going to a game one of these days. AHEM – HINT HINT

Anywho, I don’t have much on my agenda today. I need to finish writing up my Guide to the Whoniverse post for Imaginary Battles, spruce up my resume, and then possibly go dress shopping for my cousin’s wedding, which is next Saturday!

Purple socks to represent Mace Windu’s lightsaber. I don’t skimp on details.

Alright, I’m off to watch some Doctor Who to prep for my Whoniverse article! Maybe I should’ve worn a DW shirt today. I feel weird mixing franchises like this. x___x

out & about

Jen and I went to Japantown yesterday! I actually declined the invite at first because there were some things that I needed to do around the house. But then I had an emo moment and thought, “Damn, I should’ve just gone!” And then Jen called me again and asked if I was sure that I didn’t want to go, so I said, “Let me fix my hair.”And to let my parents know. Even though I’m well in my 20s, mid-20s even,  I still have to let my parents know where I go. That’s the price you pay when you live rent-free with your family.

I damn near forgot just how cold it is in San Francisco during the summer. I remember when I lived in Daly City, I thought the constant fogginess was amazing as I hate hot weather. But towards the end of my time in the bay area, I got a bad case of seasonal depression from lack of sunshine.

Once we got there, we were greeted with misty air which was a nice change from the central valley heat. I don’t think I can deal with that kind of weather everyday ever again though.

Anyway, I grabbed a couple of silk headbands with bows at Daiso for just $1.50 each. I haven’t taken pictures of them yet, but you’ll most likely see me wearing one of them in a post in the near future. I like to think of Daiso as a Japanese Target: they have EVERYTHING — fashion accessories, stationary, housewares, cosmetics, craft goods, snacks, etc.

I also found a cupcake place inside the Kintetsu mall called Cako Bakery. The cupcakes were really pricey ($3.50 each!), but I saw that they had a Strawberry Cheesecake one and I couldn’t resist.

I even found some Doctor Who toys inside a toy store I always frequent whenever I go to J-Town (the name of it escapes me though)! The first thing I saw was this 12 inch Clockwork Man figure, from the episode “The Girl in the Fireplace” which is one of my favorite episodes. They toys were freakishly pricey though — the Sonic Screwdriver I got on Amazon for $20 was being sold for $30, and the 11th Doctor’s screwdriver was being sold for $40. I found that Amazon not too long ago for $14.99. Even though I got really excited for spotting Who merchandise, I figured I’d wait till I go to Comic Con next week to go ape shit.

All in all, it was a good day. I’ll leave you with my “seasonal depression” face. Haha!
