Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #343

Trotwood: I feel like I'm in a morass. Kakashi sent some of us a great article last week that I shared with my staff that we are all languishing .   I really feel it every day, so that even if I have time, I still am not getting as much done as I should. I clean one room and have no energy to clean another. I take things out to sort with no energy to put them back. I don't have much interest in much of anything. I know what I really need (what we all need) is a real and true break. But despite several types of vaccines all over the planet, it hasn't stopped the deaths, or the lockdowns, or the fights people are still having about people not wanting to mask or social distance. Another show, I had planned to watch with another of my favorite actors Ji Jin Hee, Undercover , premiered this weekend. Did I watch? No? Will I start next weekend? Probably not. I also know if I get two weeks behind in a show, I almost never start it, so . . . too bad, too, since this is the type of s

Cubic (A SnarkCap) - Episode 14

  Shuk: I am a complete idiot, worthy of inflicting pain on myself. Actually, Cubic only has a total of 16 episodes. Blame on my last personal recap, which had 20 episodes. Or my Moderna shots. So we only have three more episodes before we can bid farewell to the weirdest couple in the entire LakornUniverse. Kmuse: I have no clue how many more we have but am just in it to the end. And really, with the length of the episodes it feels like it is never ending. Also, this is one of the saddest episodes in the entire lakorn. Have tissues handy! Trotwood: Not just sad but unnecessarily sad! Whenever I rewatch, I skip whole sections because I really try to block out what happens here. Chapter 14 Little Flock is drinking a Sprite while his minions adopt various minion poses. One goon confirms that Ruthainark has disappeared from Taipei Hong Kong, and that LLS has a new doll on his arm. Who also happens to be Thai.  How many episodes has it been since we saw Uncle Flock? I am missing his wise w

Trotwood: I'm just trying to get through the end of the semester with the typical April stress and all the April events. It seems like there are even more since they are all virtual and everyone is trying so hard to give graduating seniors wonderful things to remember after such a hard and bizarre year. A 3-day weekend meant nothing when I had to work all of Saturday. I feel like I get to watch less and less and have energy for watching less and less. I just want to sleep. Law School premiered last week, starring one of my favorite actors, Kim Myung Min, but I know I'm not ever going to get to it, so here's this week's picture.  kakashi: OMGaaaaaaawd, it's Tuesday again! lmao, forgetting to post RAWR in time is my new normal. Someone pointed me to a NYT's article yesterday and I self-diagnosed as yes, indeed, languishing. I don't feel like watching anything except for Nanatsu no Taizai with my kid. We're running out of episodes so we will start on Sea

Fanfiction: The Moon Mirror (Pojing & Bai Qian Alternative Ending) - Chapter 1 (Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花)

Image
Chapter 1  written by LalaLoop edited by Kakashi     consulting by Bunny * This chapter takes place after the chess game at Shaowan’s mortal cottage at the end of chapter 10 part 5 of Moyuan and Bai Qian , following Bai Qian’s escape from the Arctic Prison . When Bai Qian woke from her uncomfortable rest, her neck slightly hurt. She had dozed off at the table in the front yard, right on the wooden chessboard, Moyuan’s heavy coat spread over her. It was still dark, but by the chirping sounds around, Bai Qian knew it wouldn’t be long until the sun rose. She sat up, massaged her neck and glanced around. Maybe Moyuan had gone for a walk like he always did? The cottage’s front door creaked open and Pojing quietly stepped out. Bai Qian let out a long sigh and removed the coat. It was time to leave. “Where is the God of War?” Pojing asked as he walked over to her. “I don’t know,” she cast another look around. Was he not even going to say goodbye? “We’ll leave when

Trotwood: I know there are a lot of new shows coming out, and I apologize for not watching much or watching things other people are watching. I'm just trying to get everyone safely through to the end of the semester. I'm going to be honest. I'd rather not "re-open" anything if all it's going to mean is more shootings and more COVID. Is anyone watching Lee Je Hoon's new drama, Taxi Driver ? It also has Esom whom I always love even when I dislike the drama she is in. The synopsis is right up my alley. I didn't have time to start it this week, which means that I probably won't get to it. People either seem to love it or hate it. kakashi: Heard people bitch about Taxi Driver, that's all :D - hey, so it's Tuesday again. I'm very tired. The weather is crazy, 20°C one day, 0°C the next .

Trotwood: COVID cases are rising in my state and around the US. We saw the largest numbers of positives last week that we have had since the pandemic began. I'm guessing we will see even more in the next two weeks because people went home for the holidays (the week before Passover and this past weekend Easter). I'm exhausted--being leader of testing logistics team, public relations, and community education was pretty tough last week. The reviews are going to be sparse. Is anyone watching the Chinese dramas Love is Science or Unusual Idol Love  or Dilraba's new one,  The Long Ballad ? I even heard that Ivy Chen has one out, but I don't think it's subbed. Is anyone still watching Mouse and/or Beyond Evil ? Which one is the better choice for thriller/suspense fans? I'm going to keep up with the new tradition of posting posters from dramas that I will probably never get to watch here unless someone has a better idea for a photo. The Long Ballad
