just another reason to fling my hormones at your eyes, no bigz

Mmmm G-Dragon mmm. Mmmm thoughtful readers mmmmm.
Did I ever tell you about the second time I was in Taipei? We were staying at one of our apartments and I went out to the night market near the hospital. It's pretty amusing being the only white person in an city. Everyone says how PRETTY and GORGEOUS you are and then tries to add a zero to the price of every purchase. Hahaha So anyway, I went into one of the underground malls (god thinking about them make me drool) and at one of the shoe boutiques, there was this guy who was so FREAKISHLY beautiful and stylish and still I thought he was a mannequin. And then he blinked staring at me staring at him and I kind of died inside.

And then I bought a jacket from his girlfriend who owned the store and died inside some more.

This has nothing to do with these photos sent to me by Joo Jin (<3333 thank you dear) other than said hot man mannequin live person thing looked like G-Dragon. And then on the way after said humiliating event, I got lost on the subway there (which are by the way, glistening white with glowing lights, it's kind of like heaven) for 3 hours and ended up at the most expensive boutique in Taiwan, riding up and down the escalators and annoying the salespeople.

Man I am such an American sometimes.

bahahaha, i love stories from overseas, i was in asia for a few months at the start of the year and decided i should get a hair cut because it's considerably cheaper than where i live. WHERE they charge you $30 dollars JUST TO sit in their salon. i went to this one place where the hair cutting person who cut my hair was like AMAZING because he's hair was amazing (which is stupid because he obviously couldn't cut his own hair...) but anyway i was bedazzled by his talk and coolness and ignored the fact that he kind of just ripped my hair apart while telling me how he isn't actually qualified to do that. i left feeling really happy upon meeting such rad hairdresser. when i returned to australia a couple of months later the hairdresser here told me my hair was gonna talk probably a year to grow back to the original condition before this cool-rad-unqualified hair dresser had cut it.

but that didn't upset me at all.

i hope that story didn't bore you to sleep. i enjoyed typing it.

Miranda said...

hahahaah you're so funny

Amelia said...

Thanks for the comment. Sorry to justify myself again, but:
I have a kind of irrational fear of being misunderstood. I explain myself, because I want everyone to understand my point of view. I wish I could just leave people to their own interpretations, but it's not in my nature. Do you know where I'm coming from? I love your blunt, who-cares-what-they-think style, but I care a little too much what my readers think.
