Solar Eclipse! And...of course, lots of APH talkXD

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 22, 2009, 3:31 AM



:star: Did anyone watch the solar eclipse today? *v*

And I mean REALLY WATCH IT, not on TV? :XD: Did you guys even know there was one?! I couldn't see it because I'm all the way across the world...but I really wanted to!

It should be a very big deal in Asia, since it's the longest solar eclipse that will occur this century! So we will never get to see another one this long (about 6 minutes I heard) in our lifetime again...sigh... Well, at least I saw pictures online and watched videos on CCTV orzzzz. I think it was such an amazing coincidence it travelled along the Yangtze and so many major cities of China! XD I heard some people took an airplane ride from Tibet to Shanghai, so they got to experience the eclipse for half an hour!! Amazing, da?

I have to wait to 2014 to see the next one, 2017 for a full one...(btw, this site is AWESOME: eclipse.astronomie.info/sofi/a…)


:star: There is only one word to describe this:



FAIL.

Also...........


NINI. MAKURA. PILLOW. (blood gushes from nose)


I-Ivan..! YOUR HAND..!!! I wonder if this product is actually aimed for girls or guys? lolll~ Shinatty-chan is a little...um...un-cute...

WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE, BUT I WANT IT SO MUCH??!! What would I do for one?? Ah~~ When I first saw this, the back of my neck got really hot. :XD: So my neck blushes instead of my cheeks? XD So strange.

vanilla-rain's Nini & Vanya makura are so nice too, I wish they were really for sale. Never have nightmares again?


I just bought two more doujinshi because they promised to have a section of R/C inside...OTL Oh, I want an entire R/C doujinshi so much...dare I even hope for an anthology? ;A; I keep stalking ebay and jpqueen, but it's always the same USUK or Deu/Ita and I guess they're nice, but how about some VARIETY~ I'd rush to buy Korea/China or Hong Kong/China! Heck, I'd even read Belarus/Russia OTL. But not with Lit, since he totally belongs to his awsum girlfriend Poland~<3

I wonder if all those Chinese artists sell their doujinshi to international..probably not? If someone lives in China/can order them for me, I'd totally pay for it :cries:

:star: I read the news for the first time this year

And the first thing in the headlines (Xinghua newspaper):

China, Russia kick off joint anti-terror exercise


So I got curious and went to Pravda newspaper (Russian newspaper) and found:

Russia and China Hold Peace Mission Drills to Show USA Its Place


Alfred=Terror? XD I-I'm k-kidding. I love America. Please don't arrest meee....

But basically:

"Chinese and Russian armed forces on Wednesday began a five-day joint military drill aimed at boosting their troops' capability in fighting against terrorism."

T-that's kinda cute....exercising together? XD I don't know, I imagined something like this (Sorry, Hetalia has brainwashed me...)


And:

"There is a political motive there too. We want to show it to the USA that Russia has a strategic partner – China – and that Russia will not be following the USA’s directions."

:iconimhappyplz::iconimhappyplz::iconimhappyplz::iconimhappyplz::iconimhappyplz:


By the way, the event starts off in Khabarovsk.......you know....KHABAROVSK....the place that completes Ivan's Primorsky:


I like news.

And speaking of Alfred and terror, I was reading this article (yeah, I would read something like that...) :

"Subject expounds on a belief that the government should support those who could not support themselves."

Ultimately, the FBI came to the conclusion that my father "could easily be influenced to take a stand which would be Communistic" and so "should not be afforded too much freedom of action in the Army, have access to classified information or have any position of trust in the Army."


ORLY.

OH GOD ALFRED, YOUR BOSS & HIS PEOPLE WERE SO PARANOID. I'm so glad I wasn't born in the Cold War era, OTL

XD my friend bought that pillow and sleeps with it everydday, XD
Very few artists sell their doujinshi to international, it is not that easy to buy Taiwan or Hongkong doujinshis from mainland...but you can try this:[link]
A full doujinshi list of mainland China can be found here:[link]

"There is more to life than Ivan and Yao....there is, there is....sob, no there isn't", I try and tell myself the same thing.

I didn't get to see the solar eclipse, I'm stuck here in Alfred-land. I saw a video though and I wish that I could have seen it in person.

Also, about the Nini pillow, I saw it a long time ago on Ebay. My friend and I were joking around and said that Ivan would buy one. I scrolled down to find that the seller doesn't ship to Russia! He wouldn't be able to get one!

Awww... Yao and Ivan are exercising together! How cute! Partners! Ah, I'm drowning in love!

Alfred the terror... PFFT! I picture him eating a burger and looking very confused.

Don't worry, Hetalia warps everyone's brain, naturally.

And the name Peace Mission is so cute too...they have to stop being so cute together or I will lose all my blood!!

No, you have to emphasis it likeee...

XD I heard that this solar eclips was actually an ominous sign in china... (and india...) << But every country has it oddities about Solar eclipses XD Mexico says the devil will knock on your door XP

*cough* >> Russia...and China work together? No...that doesn't surprise me...they've done it before XD ...But...china's so small compared to Ivan...*shot for thoughts*

In China, they used to believe the Heaven-Dog(?) ate up the sun. XD And then everyone went into a panic and started sacrificing chickens and stuff. Apparently there used to be an office under the emperor who's only job was to predict eclipses. And if they failed to predict one (and so didn't prepare enough chickens etc to sacrifice) they were killed..eek! Two people died that way, lol....

Even if he's small, he's still the 3rd largest country in the world!! XDDD

XP The prediction (from the astrologers) This year >> I believe was social unrest. << But the world is constantly in chaos I don't think it makes a difference XDD

....XDDDD That's true. << But Ivan's Russia...XD That's why he's big...I think.

Yes, I actually saw it! (is lucky enough to be in China at the moment). It was rather strange, all the photos I took looked like it was night time. Oh fufufufu I like the news too. It's so canon - I mean fun...and interesting...

Anyways, apparently it's the Year of Russia in China right now. However, I'm not seeing much proof except for the Russian Singing Competition across China!

ah~~ so lucky!! Did it actually look like it was nighttime outside though? I don't remember ever experiencing a solar eclipse, only lunar eclipse, which isn't that special =v=;;

You can't argue with news~~

Ah! I visited China last month, it's actually the Year of Russian Language now, which might explain the singing..XD Year of Russia was 3 years ago I believe? (how do I know this OTL) I don't remember seeing anything Russian except some matryoshka dolls in shops TAT I would've liked to watch the singing competition! The language is so beautiful~~~

Yes. And the temperature went down. (thank god, it's hot).

Nope, you can't.

That would Explain it - I don't own Matryoshka dolls, but I would love one...I think I saw a necklace selling online that has a cute matryoshka on it. If you want the link I could give it to you~~ Next year is Year of China..(I think) in Russia. ^_^ It is a beautiful language, I love listening to the Radio commercials for it. That lady can really roll her tongue, so jealous!

And it must be humid there too (if you are in the south) orzz

Next Year is year of Chinese Language in Russia. XD I think they are doing this sort of activities exchange for 20 years for the 20-year friendship treaty they signed back in 200-something. I read somewhere when it was the Year of Russia in China, they held over 300 events that year to celebrate! Ah, it would have been great to be in China during that time~~
Rrrrrrrrr XD

:icondignitylaughplz:We'll have a lot to look forward to these next few years don't we? I'd say their marriagerelationship is going pretty well~ Still some kinks (Yao doesn't completely trust Ivan yet) but well..it's much improvement since the split I'd say! And plus they really need each other right now~ For financial and political and emotional, I mean..~

Oh, do you vote online or something?
