well, the day (sat, dec 9) b4 i leave for taiwan, i had a full scheduled day. first, i had to make it to korean town in LA to pick up my taiwan passport b4 it closes. someone ther recognizes my father's name... then, i made a mad dash to the children's hospital, as a volunteer, thru disney channel, decorating for their annual x'mas party for teens and their parents. (noon to 4pm)it was fun to decorate a x'mas tree (my only one ths yr) and lite up the party. thnx to my decorating partners sean and denny.
after this, denny and i decided to attend the UglyCon opening. special event at the GR2 gallery. damn, ther's a line of ppl, some said tht they've been ther since 5 am, to b sure to b first 25 ppl to get in n hv the free gifts. i'm not tht crazy about these characters, didn't even kno'em actually. except we're here n wasted the time to wait,... so we continue to wait. the whole process of getting the limited hand-made plushes. they'r not cheap, 30 for the tiny ones and 70 for the larger ones. we were told by experts tht the large ones can go for 300 on ebay. can u believe the fanatics? wow. so the entire process of going thru this took us til about 10pm... 5 freakin hours! n u don't even get to take'em home til jan!
so somewhere inbtwn picking our items (u take wht is left, only 2 per person) n paying for'em, i was dying of hunger! we wnt to eat at Furaibo. yum. tht was nice. n then back in line, in the pouring rain, to pay for our prizes.
after this (i missed out on matthias & catherine's engagement party) i drove back to hollywood (was on west side, gr2) to Star Shoes for Pakin's engagement party... by the time i got parking (even with rain, hollywood is jammed up) most of my frnds ther r plastered. and brian bought me 2 drinks plus a shot, n i caught up fairly fast, i must say.
after, i drove home to newport (1 hour) and was so beat tht i couldn't take the time to pack for my trip. passed out.
woke up early to pack b4 my brunch meeting with nicci.
then tea party at home w/my family.
i'm tired just remembering! phew!
