My name is Rayne. No, not really. My real name is Christine.
But I won't tell you that! o.o
I don't like half of the new popular cool anime series(es?) but I am a great fan of some of the older ones. I need some Robotech fans. Or Macross. Fegging awesome.
I spread the lurv to everyone. Sometimes with a mallot.

What is this, like, the fourth one?
I think it's the fourth.
Someone is obviously against me.
Today was actually a more interesting day than most.
First, I'll explain last night, cause I need to. I tried to sleep. I tried as hard as I could. But I just couldn't. I think I was up until five am. The sun was coming up. This is generally a bad sign.
Now I need to explain Taiwan's garbage collection.
Basically, you can't just leave your garbage outside for the garbage man. You need to take it to the truck and put it in the back yourself. If you don't do that, they'll leave your garbage on the curb and keep going.
So this morning, thats where I stood, with my bad of random garbage that had accumulated in my room, waiting for the garbage man. At nine am.
I'm really not a morning person. I wish I could say I was, but I must look something fierce at nine am.
Anyway, after the neighbor took it from me and said she'd do it for me (I think; she pointed upwards and shooed me away) I went back upstairs to sleep again.
If not lazy, I am pretty sick. I should sleep, right?
Ten minutes later, Yiyi came to knock on my door. A typhoon is coming. We need to go to Taichung City.
Maybe it's just me, but if a typhoon is coming *maybe* we should just stay home? I was skeptical. She explained that it was the last day of the month. I had to renew my visa.
So off we go, to Taichung City, in the beginning winds of a typhoon, just so I'm not illegally stationed in Taiwan to teach English tomorrow (we didn't finish this, because once we got there, the police office where I need to go to finish everything was closed anyway...). I was actually pretty awake as soon as the wind hit me when I went outside. I marvel at the fact that I never have a sweater when I need one, and whenever I bring one, I'm too hot.
We had Starbucks. Starbucks is bad in every country. I've made this deduction now. Anything that isn't real coffee is fine. Their 'real coffee' is horrible. Ech.
Came back a while later, to the school, to send home the kids who had wandered there even though there was a freakin typhoon coming. Waited around for about two hours for the parents to come get them, and then went home. I took my medicine, passed out for about three hours, and woke up to AGAIN be brought outside to eat dinner.
If it's so dangerous, why do we keep going outside? I find this outstanding.
Tomorrow is supposed to be really really bad. We can't go outside. I won't work then either. Yiyi has told me this is much worse than the last ones I have seen.
So.. I'll keep you posted. ;)
