Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #392

Anne: My week pretty much passed the same way as it always has...too much work and trying to figure out how to add more time into my day. The only funny thing that happened was that my husband made a reservation for my birthday, and let's say that I had an little inkling that something might happen. So I asked if he got an email reminder for the reservation. And he picked up his phone and said, "For 2 at 9:15pm March 17." I looked back at him and said, "March?" He nodded and looked at me for one second. I raised my eye brow and repeated, "March 17?" Something finally clicked and he said, "!" So we still went and waited for like an hour. But the food was yummy and we went dancing. So everything was pretty good. Yes, this was not the first time he did this. Autumn Ballad How much do I LOVE this show? A lot! Since there are only 6 episodes a week, I wait until Sunday so I get 4 episodes before I start, and catch the last two on Monday.

Anne: Happy Valentine's Day! Look at the loot that my five year old carried back from school! He was really happy to get gifts from his friends. I spent the day sitting in front of my tiny laptop talking to people back and forth. I didn't even get to eat lunch until 2pm! But I did get my noodle soup... so a perfect day! Most of my week was again spent doing a bunch of work and having strange welts popping up all over my skin. I think I should wash my newly bought clothes before I wear them. But I did make time to watch ONE show... The Autumn Ballad How good is this drama?! I didn't think it could get better, but it did! So many things happened in 6 episodes. Qiu Yan's mom died. Qui Yan accused her grandmother and father of conspiring to kill her mother (her father's main wife, not really her birth mother), and took this all the way to court. Liang Yi found the "key" to the handcuff that still remained on her wrist. But in one split second he changed his mi

Anne: My boring life continues to be filled with work and an unending series of meetings. I am going through a HanFu buying spree, and gifted myself I think about 7 different outfits! Unfortunately, I have at least 3, that despite my buying the biggest size they had, is still about 2 inches to small. Ugh! At some point I have to admit that I probably should actually get a treadmill to be installed at my desk. I have never sat so still doing nothing but computer "work" for hours on straight. I wonder if corporate will pay for this as encouraging a healthy life style for their staff. On my birthday, I'm working from home and will be wearing one of my Hanfu just for the heck of it! On a different note, I watched the Netflix documentary on the Tinder Swindler...WTF! So...there are technicaly no laws against personal fraud? The only thing they could charge him with is the fake passport. Seriously!? And why are people still giving him money!? Shining for One Thing Everything en

Anne: Happy Lunar New Year Everyone! To celebrate the New Year, I went to my aunt's for an early New Year's Eve dinner. Of course, the evening cannot end without a round of mahjong with the elders. In the end, I still lost $15, in poker chips. This is why I do not gamble, I was just not born with that type of luck.  Despite spending most of Saturday at my relatives' and spent the rest of the week trying to dig myself out of a gigantic hole at work (which I only ended up getting enough done to peak at the ground above), I did finish the two dramas that have occupied my nights for the past few weeks.  Reset Yes, I did finish this drama ahead of it's Viki release date (mostly because I have a patience problem). I will say that the ending is quite satisfying, and it does end. There is no possibility of a second season or a continuation. While there is still no explanation as to why He Yun and Shi Qing got pulled into the loop, I guess they were trying to go for the bigger m
