It was hard. Like, HAAAAAAAARD (and I’m not speaking about the Gay one). I disappeared from the blogosphere much to my own dismay, never having imagined my short holiday would turn out the way it did. First, NO access to internet. IN THIS DAY AND AGE! The horror. Second, not that I was in an incredibly dangerous country, but all my fingers aren’t enough to count all the times I avoided a tea party with the Reaper. Third, did I mention that I didn’t have access to internet? Fate, you owe me. A lot. In the end, I stayed over there a month, due to the fact that the house I was living in had been burglarized prior to my coming. Real good. I got to see the CSI team working, and that was a treat in itself.
What’s worse, a series of misfortune led me to eat only bread (not even baguette!) for two weeks. I had more than enough time to dream and fantasize about food, to the point that I even craved for some junk food. Ah, globalization.
I did wonder about this blog, whether or not people were still visiting it. So, think to my delight and gratefulness when I checked my stats and realized that it was still the case. To all of you, who came to read my posts even when I couldn’t even drop a line to explain the situation, thank you. For those who may have wondered about my personal well-being, I’m okay now, back in town after cooling down a bit.
Seeing the new comments, or the jump in my stats compared to before my trip truly warms the cockles of my heart, especially after all the hullabaloo I went through. I ♥ you all.
God knows I’m not the fastest blogger out there, but I truly missed this special place where I can rant about my dear dramas. For what it’s worth, I’ve missed the very presence of dramas! But for once, Fate decided to cut me some slack, and I’ve found myself especially spoiled by all those addictive, smart, exciting new dramas. Sorry Japan, but Korea totally stole the show, and my history buff heart while it was at it. Boong-do, I’m all yours! Japan will have the summer season to prove me wrong, with two movies I’m looking forward to watch…..certainly next year, but I heard patience is a virtue, and not just the name of the old lady living in the neighborhood. One is already out: Hotaru The Movie: It’s Only A Little Light In My Life. Though the second season really disappointed me, Hotaru no Hikari still has a story and a lead couple I always enjoy to see. For this theatrical release, the marketing team did a terrific job, and I plan to write a specific post about their strategy. Here’s a sample: I’m not giving up on this blog, and I’m even recapping an oldie drama I hope you’ll enjoy. For the moment, Proposal Daisakusen will have to take a backseat, since I believe it’s more interesting to focus on less known dramas. And before I conclude, let’s play a little game. I’ve used in this post different pictures taken from different dramas. Will you be able to recognize them all? Virtual cookies to reward the winner! Let’s rule the world!
