it's me, kate. ^^
try to stay cool, ok?
a really cool trick i learned from somewhere
is get the sleeves of your shirt wet and it'll help cool u down a lot. also, spray some water in your hair, cuz your head is where the most heat escapes yr body or something like that.
nothing very exciting to talk about,
but i thought i should update before too much things build up. xD i don't like super long posts either. lol.
i was going 2 use this pic above for the dearToma banner, but i like the blue lighthouse one from last year more... but i still wanna share this dreamy blue hydrangea pic with everyone, so hope you like it! [credit:http://www.flickr.com/photos/limedivine/3815995837/sizes/z/in/photostream/] ALSO, i want to use these purple hydrangea pics for my banners later in the summer, but i don't think the owners are gonna let me. *sigh* seems like they are both not active at flickr anymore. i'll just use a different pics i found...but i wanted to share the pics with you all. I LOVE THE FIRST ONE SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!♥♥♥ so super pretty!!!!!!! ~________~
so....first of all...
BOKURA GA ITA PREVIEW PICS!! yeyyyyy!! ^_^
(thanks to mizza & rae!!^^)

.............. some random toma news and message. xD
Which actor would you want as your younger brother?
toma got 10th place. hehe. =P
and toma didn't know his eyes were brown??! xD read his recent entry here:
http://tfgirls.livejournal.com/1847.html. i think something must have been lost in translation, cuz i don't get it...of course his eyes are brown!! what color did he think it was?? black?! lol.
............... what i think about the new hana kimi
i don't like it. T____T
(ok, i did not watch episode 1, but i've seen enough from tumblr to know i won't like it!) the first episode aired recently and i checked out the screencaps and comments and video clips on tumblr. a lot of people think it's no good. (u can see for yourself here: http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/hana-kimi) omg, i hate how they are using the same music (noo!! i love the music and it should only be for the 1st one!!!) and even the same sets from the first hana kimi!! and so far, people say for this episode, things are almost the same as the 1st episode of the old one. most of the characters are annoying or boring to me, and i really don't think maeda suits the role of mizuki at all. (credit:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hana-Kimi-Remake-2011-Fansclub-Indonesia-Hanazakari-no-Kimitachi-e/234577259897193?sk=wall)
i don't know....so much of it seems exagerrated and awkward. even if i did not compare it to the first hana kimi, i still couldn't like it. it's like the 2 main reasons this drama was made is to make money for fuji tv and to promote maeda, so they don't really care and they're gonna copy as much as they can from the first hana kimi. BUT even though it's the top anticipated drama of the summer (according to some polls), it got low ratings for the first episode! despite that there still are a lot of people who say they like this drama and there are a lot of AKB48 fans out there too, so maybe there's a chance the ratings will remain decent or even rise if the story gets better. i just hope that they don't mess things up too much for all the fans out there that are going to keep watching.

and this is a weird moment...toma's younger brother (he works for fuji tv), ryuusei,interviewed the cast of the new hana kimi!! ehhh... ironic?! @__@
............ TOMA'S BIRTHDAY CARD
so, every year i send toma a birthday card. :D
and i already bought this one recently. hehe. i'm just sending it to the official Johnnys fanmail address. hopefully toma will get it. and hopefully he'll actually open it. lol. if anyone wants me to add their name to the card, please comment at the end of this post and i'll add u. usually there's not much people, so there should be enough room. some of you might wanna write him a message too, but i don't know if there's enough space. but just go ahead and comment with a short message if u want (like 1 or 2 sentences) and your name (and what country you're from), and if in the end there's room, i'll write them in for everyone. remember, the DEADLINE to comment is probably mid-september!!! =O
happy bday toma! i love your dramas!
-Sarah (from France)
i will send the card probably around mid-september to make sure it gets to japan by october 7, toma's 27th birthday. ~___~ AND if you want to send your own bday card or letter to toma, that's great!! (just remember they don't allow gifts. they WILL send it back to you. =T and for letters, nothing too bulky!!) i posted a few different addresses to send toma fanmail (except you probably shouldn't use the Winkup one anymore, since he does not have a column for the magazine anymore.) here:
