Happy 2014~!  
Once again, happy New Year, flist! I had an all-together lovely 2013, and I hope 2014 is even better!

I've been, for all intents and purposes, away from the internet at large, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I think I've gotten back to all the comments I've gotten in the past week or so, so if I missed you, please let me know! I haven't been getting notifications reliably, so if I didn't respond, it's probably just that I haven't seen your comment! @___@; And then, I have a pretty long to do list, and I'm going to try to get to it mostly in this order:
☆ unpack
☆ hang up new posters/posters that fell while I was gone
☆ post hols fic on my LJ/to AO3, etc
☆ Do the fanfic New Year's meme
☆ Johnny's Countdown 2013-2014 report
☆ post about Hawaii
☆ post about Tokyo/New Years
☆ post recent development thoughts about the 2015 volleyball debut

I'm probably missing some things, but that's the gist of it. XD; I'm really sorry about my prolonged absence, but since I'm off from work until the 7th, hopefully, over the next few days, I'll be able to catch up with life and get back into the swing of things.

In the meanwhile, a big thank you to nekobot01 for the beautiful scarf and the card! I was really touched when I read it, and I'm always happy to get more things to keep me warm. And yes, I like pink! ♥ Thanks so much.

Also, I've basically been trying to avoid thinking about Johnny's West 7, but I can't really avoid it entirely, so have some more thoughts, though I'm not sure if they're pros or cons.

Prawns! (not pr0nz, sorry):
❄ Hopefully this will leave room for more Tokyo Junior promotions maybe...?
❄ I got my wish for a debuted Johnny's talent born in 1989... yoroshiku, Kiriyama.
❄ Not sure if I want them to go to Ijima or Julie...
❄ I'm honestly surprised at how few people I'm seeing around the internet seem even a little sad about 7West. Considering the fallouts from Ya-ya-yah and B.I.Shadow, it's just surprising to me, even though I know nothing about 7West. I'm not saying this to be judgy or anything like that, I'm just honestly surprised by it.
❄ I have a policy of no negative thoughts towards groups because, no matter what, the group is the most important thing in Johnny's, so I obviously wish Johnny's West 4 well, but I have to admit that more than anything, this makes my heart go out to Fujii and Kamiyama.

MOVING RIGHT ALONG, tonight is Yugo's show! Jidaigeki + Yugo = I'm embarrassingly excited! Even if it is five hours. >__>; Hopefully gets a lot of screen time! I just know he'll do amazingly. ♥

Oh, and before I head to go unpack, what the heck is up with "Sexy Second"?? It sounds like "sloppy seconds" lol. Sexy Zone, y u gotta make it so embarrassing for me to be your fan.

Yeah, I'm pretty behind after a week and a half in Hawaii and three days in Tokyo. XD; Thanks! I'll do my best to get all that stuff done soon XD;

Yugo will be in Kagemusha Tokugawa Ieyasu today. You can see his picture here!

Prawns XDD

But I guess we'll just have to watch and see what happens... I'm seriously questioning their judgement at debuting such a small group, and I feel so bad for Fujii and Kamiyama ;__; But... who knows what will happen. Definitely hoping this will leave more room for other Junior promotions, though~

And I'm excited to see Yugo~

Am I funny? I tried really hard. XD;

Me too... I mean, Johnny has clearly gone completely off the deep end. But yeah, I hope that this makes room for more Tokyo juniors to be in dramas and things.

Me too~

Yes XDD I was really amused |D

Yeah, basically. At least we can think of all the money we're saving >>;

I'm glad |D;;; I like to think I'm funny. |D;;

Yuuup. We'll have so much more money to put towards Sexy Zone.

*waves pompoms* がんばって!Coming back from long vacations is the worst |D there's always way too much to do.

Prawns pretty much sums up my feelings on the debut...not particlarly happy (except in a vauge, go you guys, you did it, I'm happy for all your fans/the people who wanted a kansai debut) not particularly sad, and mostly confused :/ Idk. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things go, annoying as that is. Glad you have a johnny's どうきゅうせい at long last, though!

Yugoooooo~ Thought it's been sadly lacking sofar :/ hurry up and skip to when the kid is older already.
ミランダ (大丈夫): Yugo: well?faded_lace on January 2nd, 2014 07:54 am (UTC)
Thanks XD; It's so hard to find the motivation when there's so much to do... sob.

I have my no-negativity rule for groups, but I really don't have much sense "go you guys" since it was at the expense of others, you know? It just feels all sorts of off and wrong to me. But I guess I'll just do my best to ignore it and ignore them and wait for 2015.

Yeah, I guess he was listed as such a small part since he wasn't in a huge percentage of it, not necessarily because it's a "small part."

Aw… I'm glad you liked it! You're always talking about being cold so… :D

JW4 = meh. I don't have any hatred towards them per se but the thought of having to see Kiriyama at JCD and things forever just makes me tired. Maybe he'll calm down now that he's not scrambling for screen time? Or maybe he'll get worse… oof.
ミランダ (大丈夫): Shori: shyfaded_lace on January 2nd, 2014 08:00 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks! ♥ It is freaking cold in my apartment, so maybe I'll use it inside, too. |D;;

I'm not necessarily crying or anything like that, but to me, it really just seems wrong to break up a group like that. To me, to enjoy Johnny's, there's a level of "sacredness" to the group, if you will. Like, I have to believe they like their groupmates and like being together, or else what's the point? So to see groups broken up, even if I don't like them at all, makes me sad. I don't dislike Kiriyama, but I really don't like Shigeoka. Oh well, I guess. When you think about having to see them at countdown and stuff, feel pity for me, since I'm going to have them shoved in my face on the radio, over loudspeakers, every time I turn on the TV, and basically everywhere I go for the next many months. >__<;;;
