掃除の日

The Japanese actually have a day they call “掃除の日” which translates to “cleaning day”. As you know, they get down onto their knees and use the zoukin cloths to polish the floors, and just clean everything immaculately. For me, I rarely clean, but when I do, it must be spotless.

I was so bored today I scrubbed the shower, and wiped down my touchscreen computer, laptop, printer, desk, modem, external DVD burner (though I don’t use it any more), 2 bedside tables, and all the crap I have on my “personal” bedside table. What’s on my “personal” bedside table? An alarm clock, two watches, three moisturisers, 3 body lotions, 1 hand cream, 2 toners, and a bunch of other random crap including tea tree oil, tea tree ointment, papaya ointment, dettol cream, 2 eyeshadow cases, about 6 pairs of earrings, a box of tissues, an oil for bruises, and various sample jars.

I worked so hard that my nail polish on one finger has chipped off 😦 DOH.

But anyway, it was a good idea to just clean everything before New Year – It feels a lot neater. If it weren’t because my hands were feeling super dry and my nails getting weak from being soaked in water too long, I would have wiped down the inside of my windows (which I usually do when I clean the outside, on a hot day). I wiped my mirrors down though.

Tomorrow, I am planning on more $2.50 ness. After a day of cleaning, I realised that I am probably the only one who does any decent cleaning at home, and the tools we have are not adequate. I’m going to get some good cleaning cloths, and if required, detergent (yes, they sell detergent) so I can scrub to my heart’s content.

I actually like cleaning, because of the satisfaction I get afterwards that I’ve cleaned something. The only things that stop me from cleaning are obviously the dirtiness, and that I cannot stand dust.

-*-*-*-

I realise tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. No, I do not have plans. Do I intend on having any? Well if anyone happens to be free, I wouldn’t mind lunch or something. Otherwise it’s just more window shopping for me. YEY.

Note, I am quite sceptical of NYE fireworks and “celebrations”, because I’ve been to one, and I didn’t find it particularly enjoyable. Especially since I can see all the fireworks from my window exactly where I am sitting right now, it doesn’t help. Restaurants are fully booked, you wait forever just to get food, and just about anything to do with entertainment will be filled up.

-*-*-*-

I think I’m going to cut my nails short. Like, now.

Today, I got a search for the hater post even with the correct hater name. MLIA.

-*-*-*-

For the past 5 days or so, I’ve been getting at least 100 views each day, with one day having more than 300 views, and a few over 200 views. MLIA.

-*-*-*-

Crap, I just realised NYE will be full of idiots being invited over to my apartment block, and plenty of them on balconies screaming and dancing to music and shizz. Ugh. I hate NYE because of this reason. Sure it’s a reason to party, but at least have some respect for your neighbours – who cares if the next day is a public holiday? Some people actually would like to SLEEP.

-*-*-*-

What’s going on? I still haven’t received my January 2010 issue of Marie Claire. Or did I? But anyway, I’m meant to be getting an issue soon?

-*-*-*-

Chinese drama parents are currently watching: too much exaggeration, too little action going on.

Biotherm sucks. I am never going to turn away from Shiseido ever again. I have started Benefiance within the last 2 days and my mum instantly remarked she could see a definite improvement in my skin. Sucks that it’s pricey (but it’s Estee Lauderish price, not so expensive as Dior or Chanel lines, so it’s not new to me, but it sucks since I was saving money), but it works miracles. Even the pimples will be like “zomg! It’s the Shiseido! *respect*” and back down. Seriously, never buying Biotherm ever again. What to do with my 800 or so membership points? I’m sure I have more than that but Internet is running low so I won’t check now.

New Facebook privacy settings suck big time (or so M would probably write, “suck copious amounts of whale penis”).

I finally had put my comments posted to other walls onto the OFF setting so people won’t see on their feed when I post to my friends. Now, you can see every single post I make to every single person in the feed.

Facebook, have you ever heard of the “friend” but “stalker” friend? As in the friend you’re comfortable enough to having on Facebook, but not comfortable enough for them to stalk your posts and end up inviting themselves to something you organised with another person?

Seriously, the new privacy settings are STUPID. I can turn off my status updates (but only to my friends or whatever – which is a really dodgy option), but all my wall posts are for everyone to see? What kind of stupid logic is that? I thought these settings were meant to IMPROVE privacy, not to make it even more public. I don’t like my wall posts turning up in EVERYONE’S NEWS FEED.

-*-*-*-

Due to said privacy settings, an influx of randoms (with barely 5 friends, no mutual friends) are adding me to their friends.

R commented at the beginning that my Facebook settings were apparently “so private I couldn’t even click her [Misa] name to add her!” – now, I happen to get a bunch of people adding me. What the hell is going on?

The Missha AC Patches are working. Day 1: hardened pimple. I popped it, stupidly. It hurts like mofo. Day 2: painful, red, but smaller. Day 3: Pimple is flattened, area of redness reduced. No pain. Day 4: well, hopefully by tomorrow I end up with just a red spot rather than including the area around it. Like I said, not the most effective way to get rid of a pimple, but it can help speed up the healing process. If I didn’t use the patches, I’d still have a red and sore pimple. Ouch.

-*-*-*-

Coming to think of it I can also try my luck at Capitol tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the last day of 2009! Wish you all safe and well, and not to drink too much – you want to start off 2010 feeling fresh, not hangovered!

Until next blog!
