On the off chance people are still awake, you have 2 more hours to bid over at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan!!

Also, I think this cold medicine is keeping me awake 0_0

ETA: Did some last minute shopping around on [livejournal.com profile] help_japan and hopefully ended up with a few things. But now it's 3.30am and I need to go to sleep. Anyone who offered or bid something, YOU'RE AWESOME! ♥♥♥

When I wake up, I shall inform my winners that they have... won. And junk. I need some bubble wrap.

So, while people in Japan, going through such terrible times, are being nice and showing compassion to each other, this is what people are seeing right now about America - 'UCLA Girl is going on a rant about how Asians talk on the phone in the library, Japan's Tsunami, and the "problem" of hordes of Asian people.'

I just don't have any words. She is a moron. A racist, arrogant, attention whore. I almost don't even want to share the link because I don't want her to get even more attention.

Another TERRIFYING tsunami video. A whole city/town just swept away in the water. The people watching as their homes and lives are being destroyed right in front of their eyes. I don't even want to think about any people or animals still there when it happened.

In less depressing news, I finally have corned beef and soda bread. I'm ready for St. Paddy's day now. More accurately, I'm ready for some reuben sandwiches now. *DROOL*

Went to Japantown today with mom. A nice, rainy, grey day. We got lunch at Isobune and I got a few things from the market for a Japanese snack package I'm offering at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan (banner/link at bottom of entry). After that, we went to the post office on 24th Street to drop off my student loan payment and pick up some boxes for shipping the snack package. While we were in the area, I also got a lemon drop cupcake and a mint chocolate mini cupcake. I ate the latter before I could take a picture of it though ;)

Just a few pictures from today... )

Aaaaaaand here is the link to my Japanese snack package over at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan (which for some reason my mind wants to read as 'halp_japan' 0_o):



My offering of icons can still be found over here! Speaking of, [livejournal.com profile] entwashian and [livejournal.com profile] tresa_cho, y'all are awesome ♥♥♥♥

I'm offering icons over at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. Click the picture for my thread/offer :)



I'm also planning on going to Jtown tomorrow and picking up some candy and treats to make a little package to auction off. I'll post a link to that later.

This 1st person video of the tsunami is terrifying. At first I was like, okay some water. But not a moment later I actually yelled 'Holy shit!' at my computer. I'm scared and I'm not even over there. Jesus. One thing I'm actually 'grateful' for, given the circumstances, is that so many people in Japan were able to film what happened. It's so easy to forget just how serious this kind of tragedy is when it's so far away from you. But so many people filming and sharing their experiences have really helped bring this event into our own homes. Our own lives. It shouldn't have to be that way, but unfortunately, for many it is.

Pictures of Japan: Before and After

Also, thank you [livejournal.com profile] midnightwhisper for buying the Help Japan v-gift and for sending it to me

The news about Japan just keeps getting worse D:

[9:54 p.m. ET, 11:54 a.m. Tokyo] A meltdown may have occurred at at least one nuclear power reactor in Japan, the country's chief cabinet secretary, Yukio Edano, said Sunday.

He also said that authorities are concerned over the possibility of another meltdown at a second reactor.


Also a good place for news: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12724953

Videos like the one below are so mind boggling. You can see the ground swaying back and forth and the water underneath coming through. You can hear the waves on what used to be solid land.



If you are able, give what you can to places like:

* Red Cross
* [livejournal.com profile] help_japan (I'm thinking of offering icons or something. I always feel weird, like my stuff isn't worth money, but I'd like to help anyway I can)
* Lady Gaga has Japan Earthquake Relief Wristbands. They're only $5 and "Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this "We Pray For Japan" wristband! Choose your price to add an additional donation with your wristband. All proceeds go directly to Japan relief efforts."
* Groupon
* Japan Society (which also has links on how to find and contact people in Japan)

Watching CNN right now because an 8.9 earthquake and tsunami has hit Japan D:

Tsunami warnings in other countries. If you know anyone there, call them. Let them know. They might still be asleep and not know what's going on. Also, if you're in Hawaii or know anyone there, you can go here (http://www.scd.hawaii.gov/) and type in an address to see if you need to evacuate.
