thoughts on a sleepless night: part neuf

... Kkot boda Namja (Boys Over Flowers), the Korean Version of Hana Yori Dango has finally ended. i still couldn't get enough of it so i've been watching reruns these past few days. the Korean F4 is love!!! lol.

... aside from watching Kkot boda Namja, i also watched Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend). it is a live action series based from the manga written by Yuu Watase. jeez. i couldn't believe that i cried over Tenjo Night when i have been rooting for Asamoto Soshi. :P

... the theme song of Zettai Kareshi (Okaeri by Ayaka) has been singing in my head all day so i downloaded it.

... as usual, i've been busy playing different wars and games in Facebook.

... i haven't blogged about F1 coz i feel lazy. the Ferrari team doesn't have points yet coz Kimi and Massa aren't doing well. i don't care. haha. i've been rooting for Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel.

... early this year, i saw an F1 calendar with 3 of my favorite drivers - Kimi, Lewis, and Nico on the cover. i didn't buy it coz i didn't have enough money that time. damn.

... one of the TV shows i watch, Greek, is back.

... David Cook and David Archuleta will have a concert here on May 16. i'm still pondering on whether i'll watch or not.

... i have been reading mangas and watching Asian dramas since the week started so i haven't organized some of my stuff yet.

... i'm looking forward to my niece's first ballet recital next week.

... i am totally crushing on Kim Bum, Kim Hyun Joong, and Mizushima Hiro!

... i wish that Lil would be the next one eliminated in American Idol 8.

... Paulo Coelho has a new book. i haven't bought any of his book since i got disappointed over The Zahir (which i haven't finished reading) and Eleven Minutes.

... i'm starting to like Adam Lambert. i like his rendition of Mad World.

... i've been sleeping really late this week. it has been a long time since i slept this late.

that's all for now.
