Long time no post! I'm sorry I haven't posted in eons (seriously), but life is an ever eternal struggle for sanity ^_^. The good news is that after I got laid off in March 2008 (right before my birthday too!), I managed to find another job starting in January 2009 so life is good. Thanks so much to everyone who has sent thank-you notes for what little I've put up on my LJ and for padding my Youtube video comments as well. Makes me happy that people are enjoying them.
Taking a little detour from my Kanjani8 fandom to pimp another awesome guy who just happens to attend Kansai University in Osaka, so that can't be too far off from the boys, ne? If you haven't heard of Daisuke Takahashi, he just happens to be the first Japanese male figure skater to win an Olympic Medal (Bronze) in 2010, Vancouver and in the World's Championship (Gold) earlier in March. (His short program in Vancouver was sizzling! )
What is so amazing was that he overcame a potentially career ending torn ACL injury on his landing leg towards the end of 2008 and managed to fight his way back to the top. His skating programs are full of passion, charisma, and charm and he is also very strong on his jumps and footwork. I mean, how can you not like a guy who loves to shop? Daisuke Takahashi is too cute for his own good.
Seriously, it should be a crime for a man to have such long eyelashes like this! I made some animated gifs of some of his memorable skating moves as well as some cute moments.
I'm off to work on a fanvideo just for him! Enjoy!
