Kimonos

Here are some kimonos that I have. With bleeding heart, I decided that I should sell part of my collection, because I do not have much space for them and also do not have the opportunity to wear them. So if you were interested in some, let me know. Some are quite expensive though (especially the uchikake).

I will be uploading photos of my other kimonos when i get time to make photos of them as well, they are in BFs flat.

So, here we go…

Kiseki. The damn story that consumes my life.

Just joking, I love it, it is my baby. I only wish I did not have to struggle with all the facts. But it can not be helped, since the story takes place in Japan… and partially in VIP host club in Tokio. Facts, facts and more facts that need to be correct.

I am just writing the detective part of the story, just before the first big surprise unveils and to be honest, I trully hate to write detective stories, but Kiseki just demand this part of the storyline. Also while I was gathering information about japanese host clubs (with male staff), I came across this interesting documentary called The Great Happiness Space. I highly recommend it.

Here is a small scene from page 73 of Kiseki, the staff preparing for the last attempt to save the host club – A Christmas party. I roughly translated from my Czech draft.

Mentioned characters:
Mr. Sato – club owner
Akio – one of the top hosts and “swine extraordinaire”, but good at management

“Ok, the survival of this club depends on this event. Everything must be perfect. I have ordered stylists and hairdressers who will take care of you. Clothes will be provided by Naoki’s brand studio – do not forget to choose your style and appear for the fitting.” Sato looked as if he haven’t slept for days, but was spreading positive energy. “We will have media at the place, so nothing inappropriate. If the client gets drunk, take her to private room and call her a taxi. Discretely!”
Akio took the word. “You will get a day off today and tomorrow. As for the party, you will come at noon and leave around four or five in the morning. Who does not come is fired.”
One of the hosts chuckled. “And if somebody gets seriously ill?”
“Then he is allowed to die… AFTER THE PARTY!”

My migraines are getting much worse than few days ago. They are probably caused by TMJ disorder, because my bite is really bad now and my jaw muscles are getting really tired. Unfortunately, it is not just sore muscles anymore, but is becoming regular migraines with all that comes with it – irritated eyes, headaches, light sensitivity… not fun at all.

I am struggling with Kiseki – something is still off from page 60 and I am not sure what exactly. Probably I wrote something wrong about the reality of the host clubs, so I am getting myself few documents about them, so I can study and maybe think out what is wrong with my writing. I so hate being a perfectionist sometimes. Anyway, trying to write, having head full of ideas and having heavy migraine at the same time is no fun.

I promised myself that only one more page today and then I am off to bed. Good night guys.

EDIT: The migraine got a little better today, so I watched half of the document about host clubs. It’s called The Great Happiness Space: Tale of an Osaka Love Thief.  Also I edited few more pages of Kiseki. Again, I trully hate detective parts of stories, lol.

Ok, one by one:

Hair:

I got a new haircut on thursday. I think I like it, its fluffy and a little closer to what I wanted than the last one. It can be made casual or very fluffy by mixing some foam and wax into it. 😉 The basic cut is similar to one of Gackt’s hairstyles, but since my hair is very fine and I have different facial structure (obviously, gah! >__<), it looks different.

Trying to get Gackt's haircut, lolTrying to get Gackt's haircut, lol

Fluffed up version 😉

Writing:

I spent most of the time trying to figure out what does not work in the last 20 pages of Kiseki. Obviously, I did not write the media and police actions timed too well. So I will reedit few scenes, add some other ones and delete few blocks of text. Anyway, it should work once I force myself to edit and rewrite all the things that I changed and scratched on printed papers. Somehow, I did not have power to do it today. Lazy, I know.

Gran:

When I came back home from Prague, I was shocked to death. When I said hello to gran and she turned to me, I realised that she has HUGE black-violet bruise around her left eye. First thing that I thought of was that somebody attacked and robbed her. What really happened was that when she was visiting her friend and they went to visit some garden, she stepped on a rake that was left there. And guess what? Yes, she did NOT go to a doctor. Damn, she could have  concussion of the brain or something… sometimes I wish I could just take her and carry her to doctor be she willing or not. Anyway, she is getting better now and I will try to get her to doctor for some check-up at least.

I am sitting at bfs flat, stuffing myself with a tiny piece of cake that was left from my namesday and am preparing to leave in about a hour to get a haircut and then run to job interview (sushi chef in training position, lol), but the only damn thing that I can think about is the not so wel written murder thingy in my story.

My main char Jun witnesses murder. But nobody remembers that the murderer ever lived – it looks as if it was Jun’s fantasy… and he becomes suspect instead. Since he is working in VIP club and the victim was member there, media start sniffling around, but they stay low, because the club owner is generously handing out checks for “discretion”. Buuuut I need to have the club closed later, so I can throw Jun into very important scene, where he discovers, that many things aren’t what they seemed to be.

In other words: I hate the damn media scenes.  I hate writing detective scenes… and since they are intertwined, its twice the mess. Anyway, I need to rewrite the murder scenes in news and newspapers. Again… ;___;

5 months after SARPE

Ok, another check. Here are my before and after photos after surgically assisted palatal expansion aka SARPE. My expander is still on and I have braces (they surprisingly add to the positive result atm, lol), but I have my removal date: 20th March. Yay!

I am posting photos without makeup, because they show the results better than any “concealed” ones.

Anyway, here you go:
