Happy Lunar New Year . . .
It's good being on top of the family tree. You get visited by people instead of going to visit people. Including the uncle who is stingy with the ang pao money and the ones who bring all their spawn to collect as many red packets as possible.
Went to my mother's side for dinner. As my mother's immediate family is large to begin with, it always made sense to go to one uncle's house for the first day. My one and only niece has not acknowledged me--woe is I, for toddlers have such short term memories for relatives they only see once a month. (One of the pairs of uncles and aunties are still having problems and it's getting sadder year after year.) Grandmother's meat rolls and curry! Yay!
Am becoming a pig with all the face-stuffing these two days . . .
Dear whiney fangirls,
You're already getting games and stuff for free. Asking for translations is like asking for that slap upside the head you rightfully deserve. Learn Japanese. It opens whole new worlds for you, believe you me. It makes life easier and cheaper in the long run.

You know you've been on Y!Japan for too long when a newbie seller contacts you with a five-line e-mail and you get offended by the lack of so-and-so to moshimasu as an introductory line and the required paragraph about contacting the seller if such and such is not clear. Complete with jingle-bells and the prosthetic "-itashimasu" and "-gozaimasu" appended onto every line.
The Lunar New Year is coming!
Have baked tarts, bought cookies and bought more Toyogo boxes to stash stuff.
And I have only bought one new shirt.
Have not gone for a haircut yet.
Still not ready for CNY.
