Watched the Music Station Super Live 2005 last night (aired on the 23rd in Japan). Was quite amused that O-Zone, of all people, was there (well, two of them were). Even more amused that "Dragostea Din Tei" is titled "恋のマイアヒ"1 in Japanese. They had a tiny little translation above the karaoke lyrics, but it was too tiny and went too fast for me to figure anything out, but lyrics are generally retarded anyway so I don't particularly care. None of the performances really stood out as ZOMGYEY, although Ketsumeishi, Orange Range, and SMAP were rather fun to watch. I guess they save their yey for the Kouhaku (which airs there on New Year's Eve; with luck I should be able to see it sometime the following week). Normally I enjoy Morning Musume, but really it's not the same without Kaori and Mari. Plus neither of their recent singles were anything special. Yes, I know they can't sing. But they're SO CUTE.

Still no baby yet, but apparently Kristy had a ton of energy today, so the consensus is that she'll probably have the baby tomorrow. I overslept by about an hour (which is my normal time of up-getting) for going down there, so I didn't go, figuring they'd call me if they needed me, since Kristy said yesterday that she'd be okay to work today (she'll be damned if she uses any maternity leave before there's actually a baby in her arms). They didn't call, so around 11:30 I called them, asking what was going on, and I was told "eh, we don't need you today. But come down tomorrow." Which is the same thing they told me yesterday. The truth is that even if I come down there tomorrow, it's likely that I'll just be sitting around at corporate twiddling my thumbs until somebody tells me I can go home, since Kristy is stubbornly refusing to take any time off until she's actually giving birth. Oh well. Hopefully I can still get the weekend off so I can go see my grandparents and great-aunt like I planned...

1 Pronounced "koi no maiahi", meaning something like "the maiahi of love"...

Maybe it's because I'm an unfeeling male, but I'd be like "Cut that sucker out" after hour #2 or so of labor.

How many days has it been? OMFG...

They can't sing. But they are cute. And O-Zone's in Japan? I'm confused - isn't that one of those manufactured American boy-bands from a few years back?

It's been like 4 days since her water broke. Apparently she's stuck at about 1 or 2 cm dilated. It's allegedly somewhat common when having your first child. My mom says her water broke on a Wednesday but I wasn't born until the following Saturday, and she was at home carrying on as usual in the interim. Her contractions are still just every few hours, afaik.

No that was O-Town (a cousin of mine LOVED them). O-Zone is a Moldovan boy band that sings in Romanian. That "Dragostea Din Tei" is a song that actually came out in 2003, but became popular in Europe in 2004 and just made it to the States (and Japan) sometime in the past year. Surely you've heard the Numa Numa song? That's it.
