Today I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. We didn't get to see much of the Japanese street festival because it was overly crowded. We did get to get two bottles of ramune though. That was wonderful. There was these annoying teenagers that kept yelling in my ear about a freaking Pikachu mask. I just wanted to punch them in the face. We decided to go to the Tidal Basin just to see the rows of Cherry Blossoms. OF COURSE, the whole place was crowded. I swear to you. I have never seen so many people in D.C. in my life. I couldn't believe it. I stopped to take some pictures and people were being so inconsiderate. They walked right through my pictures and didn't say 'sorry' or 'excuse me'. Bastards. People came from all over the country, I guess. There were a lot of Asian people. A lot. The Japanese food they were selling was OUTRAGEOUSLY priced. For one California Roll, it was almost $5. We decided not to go there. I think the main reason there were so many people was because it was a free festival. I guess it was beautiful though. The blossoming of the trees. Although, I can go in my backyard and see the same trees.
I also saw "Oldboy" today. It is a Korean movie that just came out. It was EXCELLENT. It is one of my top favorite movies. The plot was incredible. It kept me entertained the whole time. I loved the dark humor about it. And it was pretty heartbreaking. All in all though, this was the highlight of my day. I would recommend it to anyone who likes indie flicks. Of course, it isn't suitable for most since the plot is very controversial. But that movie was amazing. I am also looking foward to seeing "Kung Fu Hustle". I already saw the ending when Billy and I went out to eat dinner at an Asian restuarant. It was wonderful and funny. It hasn't come out yet though. But I am highly looking forward to seeing the rest of it. Oh, and I love Stephen Chow. He looks like Billy. Billy looks asian. All asian people look like Billy. I love Billy.
Sorry if this is incoherent. I am in a hurry. I am also seeing "Million Dollar Baby" tonight.
That is Stephen Chow. Wow!
I just got back from Million Dollar Baby and that movie was emotional. I understand why it was so controversial. I don't agree with it though. That movie made me mad too because the woman was such a bitch. Not Maggie, but the whore that she fought. Oh, and her dumb redneck family. They are stupid. On a plus note, Clint Eastwood is old. Wow. My grandma used to babysit and housesit for him. I love telling people this. So, if you heard it already, oh well, this is as close as I ever got to a celebrity. That and the fact that I have a picture of his daughter Allison, which I got from my grandmother. She was young. Anyways, I am done. I had a long day. ♥
