Yes, I’m still in some form of shock of the BIG event that happened while I was literally playing Legos with my new buddy alllll day, a 6 yo girl whom I had thoughts of kidnapping every 15 min even though her folks r ppl I’ve known for upwards of 15 years and consider myself their friend, still.
I still have the visuals, the very first realization of my young life then of how the world as we know it….will never ever be the same ever ever again.
It’s not the first time I’ve glued in front of the TV for days, yet I cant process a thing….for many more days. That will be TM Sq 1989. I thought I would NEVER experienced sth as shocking as watching TV at school for the whole day yet felt the opposite of any enjoyment. Of course, like all things in life, I’m wrong.
And life is so freaking unbelievable. This friend, whom I haven’t seen for almost a decade, had just landed a job in Manhattan, Twin Towers, that July. Fresh grad, his first job. That day he had his first work presentation in midtown. We had no idea. Frantically I called him. We’re in the same circle of friends but tbh, we’re not that close to call him every 10 min for 20 hrs. He walked home, he told us later, like the rest of the grey flannel suits, they were armored in that inescapable whitish greyish ash. He walked in silence, for many hours, crossed the Brooklyn bridge, back to his new rental. We actually chatted on it, now a decade later today, we chitchatted casually. He proposed to his now wifey later that next day. I decided to ask my now hubby out on a date date. I probed him of his plans for the big 10 yr anniversary celebration. As if these sweet memories can cover-up that scarring.
And it’s always these eerie coincidences in life that run in perfect full circles. The baby hid my phone in the microwave and I didn’t even know it’s not in my proximity for HOURS, me being a normal denizen.. We were doing nth special, the simple lovely things in life as in eating cakes with great company (and many glasses of wine), and it’s not after they’ve left I’m pulled back fr the idyllic day. And my addiction to my electronics.
As I was looking frantically for my phone, almost calling the jetlagged out of towners if they grabbed it accidentally, I saw Obama, making a speech. It’s on replay, on a Sunday, CNN, breaking news.
Did it surprise me, no. I don’t feel a thing at all towards a terrorist’s imminent death. I can’t even hear any word the President said, and I didnt take in any detail on anything at all. MY vision is literally overlapped with flashbacks, instantaneously, every bit of imagery, down to the chilly night I spent on the top of the Chrysler building, 2 beams of light in place of what used to be tonnes and tonnes of real, concrete, man-made marvelous mass.
I will not think too much about it. I don’t feel the call for celebration by some, but I don’t see why they can’t cheer over the news for fear of repercussion. WHAT can be worst?!?! If the heinous crime taught us anything, this is a our world now. Anything unimaginable can happen and we can’t do a thing about it. Every time we pass by a scanner and a security check we know we should take it most positively as loving little tucks and pats for comfort, for our own good old ease, and nth else. Live the moment, even when being at Grand Central magically lit and crowded during the holidays made the city girl me squirmy and phobic.
Why can I go on and on on nth much when all I want to post is on the HB Lotte CF?!?!
How do we quantify how freaking popular HB is atm?! The mascot-ting by the Marines…maybe. But still any A-lister fresh off a national hit drama choosing to serve in the grueling Marines will get the same treatment, I suspect.
But this, this is HUGE. This is HUGEST HBinnie has ever been, this may all be fangirl talk, Lotte may have kidnapped all these insanely big things and made each one of them a singing, piano playing CF of their own with the remaining biggies all share the screen time lesser than a bunny.
Yet here we have, HBinnie is singing and playing the piano and all 28s out of 30 of HIMHIMHIMHIMHIM!! and 2 sec of 2PM?, and 0.1 of JYJ+JGS+KHJ and the rest….all the KdramaKpopkingdom royal princes.
Did HBinnie get to be the N1 guy in the bunch for decent singing?! HELL NO! As a non professional, he’s usu decent, but this will get my vote of one of his worst recorded job (butbutbut binnie was soo overworked by then and battling stomach spasms….)

The time it took for me to STARE at this screencap and going OMO! on the WHO’s WHO! is already 200x longer than they appeared on screen. Yup, you don’t see no face shot of Chunface (oh, the blasphemy!).
