Not Going!

Everyone left this morning for Canada.
It's just me and Miki here, all alone.... we stayed behind.
I'm not going to Canada, yay! Miki and I were originally planning to just hang out in Toronto by ourselves while they do the boring tourist stuff (which is illogical for us because we've been to Canada 10 times already). However, our mother disapproves the idea of us being away from parental supervision. Come on! We're adults!!! We went to Japan on our own for 2 weeks, would it kill you to leave us in Toronto for 3 days?! I would've gone to Canada if they had let us stay in Toronto by ourselves.

Anyways, they called us up in the morning to tell us that they arrived in Detroit, MI and the "Canadian Consulate" is closed from a New Year break. I screamed into the phone, "serves you right for wanting to leave to Canada so early!" They then asked for directions to go to Buffalo, NY, since I'm the best navigator and I know how to get everywhere (the first reason they wanted me to go). The next plan was to try the Canadian Consulate in Buffalo. After I gave them routes and estimated mileage, they changed their mind and said it was too far because they obviously can't cut through Canada. They would need to go south and wind around Cleveland.

Instead, those idiots told us to find them a hotel on the internet. Detroit is among one of the dangerous cities in the US, we kept asking "are you sure?!" repeatedly. So we just booked them a night in a casino hotel. It's going to be hell for my cousin Nutt, because she's not 21 and she will be bored out of her mind in the hotel room while all the grownups go play in the casino.

Well at least she has the hotel room. I remember when I was a kid, we checked out of our hotel in Joliet, IL, but my family still wanted to play in the casino. Since I couldn't call them (had no phone at the time), and I couldn't go get them (I was only 13), I waited 18 hours outside and even slept on the street. The guards were trying to chase me away and telling me that I couldn't sleep there, all I could tell them is that I was waiting for my parents who were still in the casino. Every time a guard pulled my dad out to come get me, he would tell me, "just a few more hours sweetie, daddy's trying to get mommy away from the blackjack table."  and he would walk back into the casino and leave me outside. Miki wasn't there with me, she was staying at our aunt's house at that time. It sucked! That's 18 hours I'll never get back.

I hope their Canada trip fails!

No, I'm not homeless!
Another one of my cousins just arrived in Chicago from Thailand. I can't take it anymore, there's too many people in my house! There's a total of 8 people now living in my house.

My cousin, named Nutt, is visiting us for the holidays. I'm not resentful, but I would like to maintain my space and territory. It just feels really cluttered here. And wow has cousin Nutt changed a lot. Back then when she was younger, she whined and cried A LOT, so I called her "little miss whiny pants" for 6 years. Of course I stopped when she matured. Well, the last time I saw her, about 3 years ago, she was a real quiet type, like me. I remember her curly hair and her silence.

Now that I've seen her today, after 3 years, she's way too mature! She's tall, thin, and got long straight hair... and she wears make-up... (she's only 15). Simply put... she's pretty. GAHHHH!!! Since when do people in my family grow to 5'6"?! I'm 5'2" and I was considered the tallest one in the family! I can't help that I'm vertically challenged! My self-conscious self wants to die right now.

Man... 8 people in my tiny house.
Where am I gonna sleep?

By the way, Project Schneider was put on hold because my custom cosplay was delivered safely, I just need to make the head. I won't say what my outfit is because it would spoil the ACen surprise for Izzy and Jason.

I was in a hurry to get to my psychology class yesterday... and I tripped over my two terabyte external hard drive!!!
I BROKE IT!!!!!!!!!!
I can't believe I broke my hard drive!!!!!!!!

I had EVERYTHING on it! My video collection! Do you have any idea how hard it was for me to find CRASH! live @ WestWind! It was the best live ever! My entire music archive was on there too. My Jdrama collection was on there! I had 10 full anime series on there too. All my film works and edited footage was on there! All of these things are hard to replaced.

I need to get it repaired!
I'm going to ask Santa to fix my hard drive this year...

I'm gonna cry.... all my stuff is gone!

I woke up at 9:30am (uncommon occurrence) and I'm shivering because I'm freezing my butt off. How cold is it today?! I looked, it's 44, that means it's 52 in the house. And I'm the idiot wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the house!

Asides from me shaking uncontrollably right now, I'm running a little dry on story ideas right now. I actually do have a large list of scenarios for my comics on my computer. I can't decide and at the same time, I can't come up with new scenarios. I also need to start working on the upcoming comic before I forget and drag it on too long.

Hey! For the upcoming holiday (Christmas, not Thanksgiving) I wanted to do a members special on AAAttackers. Not everyone celebrates Christmas but, although I cannot give people gifts... the best I can do is draw something nice for them. This will only be available to the DW site.

So here's the deal. I want to have a special on AAAttackers for members only. It's going to be a "Create Your Own Scenario Contest!" It's not only a test of creativity, but also to evaluate the skill of imagery to see if our imagination is on the same page (it tests my ability to recreate it properly). It will be unbiased, I'm open to all ideas. (just keep it PG) It won't be so hard, since the comm only has 7 members... 4 or 5 out of that "might" be participating. The winner will be credited and have their scenario illustrated, plus they will also receive exclusive unreleased AAAttackers scans AND never before seen rough footage (not the pilot) of the "coming soon" AAAttackers mini-animated series.

That's a good prize, right?
Others are welcome to join the contest, but they need to become a member. But yeah, I will get the contest posted on AAAttackers soon so I can start up. I want more participants...

Yeah, all those weeks after arriving back from Japan, I finally finished building the awesome Gundam I got from Japan. I took a lot of pictures but I'll only share two because I don't want to pic spam my journal. This was the only MG (Master Grade) Gundam I bought in Japan. I bought it in Akihabara. It was in a really big toy store, there was a colossal wall of Gundam kits.... It was like heaven.

It's the "Crossbone Full Cloth ver."

It took 5 days to build, I worked in 3 hr intervals.


It looks so cool, I spent some extra time to detail the black lines. The thin black lines and skull sockets were all done by hand with a needle-thin pen tip. Gundam models always expect you to contour all the lines yourself, but all the builders I know of are too lazy and leave the Gundams as is (very plain looking). I will talk about the concert tomorrow.

No joke.
All throughout Chicago, a high speed wind alert has been issued from now until the end of Wednesday.

It's the first time we ever had something this serious. We're going to get hit by 65mph winds for 36hrs. We're basically getting a typhoon without the rain. The city was advised to move outdoor objects (like Halloween decor and furniture) indoors.

Did I mention my parents went back to Thailand... Miki and I have the house to ourselves.
We are prepared for a disaster, thank goodness. We have supplies in case of power outages, which are eminent, as well as water system shut downs and ruptured gas lines. Gel fuel will get us through 4hrs of cooking and we have 3 days worth of water.

I will be on lockdown (survival mode) until Wednesday. Just to warn ahead of time I won't or might not be online during lockdown period. Look at it this way, it gives me tons of time to work on the next issue of Attack All Attackers.

If you don't hear from me, then ComEd has failed us again!

Uhh... what did I do today?
I saw the "King of Fighters" movie...
Whoa... it was just as bad as Tekken! But, the inter-dimensional battle arenas were an awesome idea, other than that, I will never watch the movie again! I found it very interesting that they had decided to based the King of Fighters storyline off of the "Orochi legend," the 8-headed dragon of doom. I was a little familiar with it (I played a lot of Okami). Even the characters names were very close to the names of the ones from the legend. The main character "Mai Shiranui," the name Shiranui comes from the reincarnated form of Amaterasu (the sun goddess), which aided in the defeat of Orochi. The other character, "Kyo Kusanagi," who is the wielder of the Kusanagi sword, the same sword from the legend which was the only weapon that could kill and seal Orochi.

I went to school... nearly feel asleep due to boredom.

Got back from school and ate minestrone (no choice, there was no food in the house). Then I watched "The Forbidden Kingdom" with Miki. I love Jackie Chan movies. I practically grew up watching his movies.

I'm going to go play Zoids Legacy now, because I'm still a kid.
epik_noodles: (What?!)
(On a side note, I got this really cool Nissy icon off of deviantart.com)

One....
I'm super sad that I couldn't finish my comic last night. It was only 1am and I managed to get caught! I was so close to finishing! I had inked all the panel borders, then I got caught before inking the characters. Unfortunately, in this house, DRAWING IS FORBIDDEN!!! I have no idea why my parents established that rule... something along the lines of "drawing is a waste of time, it has nothing to do with education, and it doesn't feed you!" I'm still not allowed to apply to an art college. I get in big trouble if I'm caught drawing. I get yelled at for drawing at work. Art is a form of freedom and expression, I don't know why my parents don't understand that. I'm really sad about this because I could've finished the Shinjiro comic last night, but I got caught and was forced to stop.

Two....
Another thing which I'm not too happy about... I found someone's Misako fanart (deviation).

Their editing and coloring skills far surpasses mine. I am a horrible artist, I'm no match for that somewhat masterpiece! For sure, I know they used a picture editing software, because they wrote it in their comment. I myself use photoshop to retouch / clean up my drawings, but never to such a degree. Call me jealous, but I'm pretty satisfied with my drawing style, it's just... I always fail at coloring. Sushi Master has outdone me! I'm going to work really hard until I can color proficiently. Then... maybe all my comics can be in color someday. As I've always been told again and again... "the things we draw are unique to us, they come from our hearts, they are a part of us, our art defines who we are!" From the wise words of Edward C. Cook, local Batavia artist.

Three....
I lost my limited edition Bloody Monday Falcon USB flash drive. I'm hopeless... I can't find it. I know it's in the house!

Four....
My Zoid I got off ebay still hasn't arrived. If it's being sent by plane a week and a half ago, why hasn't it arrived? I must be spoiled by Japan EMS, they ship fast.

Five....
I have less than two weeks to write my research paper on "social phobia." A topic I'm way too familiar with. Why must psychology be so annoying?

I guess tomorrow's post be a level happier than this one.

I pre-ordered it a long time ago (mainly because I always forget to buy a calender for the next year). Yes, I'm a doofus because I usually end up calenderless from my horrible memory.

My AAA calender just came in the mail today!
I've already seen the cover online, but after I flipped through the pages, I was so surprised at how much more colorful it was than the last calender. The setting is "retro diner" plus wacky colorful outfits. Note: I have not seen contents of the calender prior to today.

I mean seriously... they're dressed like they're about to go to a rave! The only things they're missing are glow sticks and pacifiers.

I added some text to illustrate my point.

 
I'm more concerned about the outfits rather than the calender.

This next one, I can't help it, it needs to be pointed out and it just makes me laugh. I am so going to milk this. I present to you the marvel that is Hidaka's jacket...

And he has pulled off another fashion disaster!
The translucent raincoat... truly amazing. To top it off, it's studded... and he's wearing leopard print underneath. As if the rainbow pants weren't enough. Well, I guess Hidaka's screwy clothing style is what makes him stand out from the rest of the members. It shows that he's capable of playing dress-up and he's not afraid to wear strange things. Not being picky at all is one of the best traits.

This last one... no, I am NOT sick minded. It's more of a random discovery. This is one of those "Wait! What the..." moments. I couldn't help noticing that Nishijima was wearing headphones for the entire shoot. For sure, I know that in photoshoots, headphones are generally NEVER plugged into anything. However, I will admit that the coincidental positioning of Nissy and the headphone cord took me by surprise. Look at this picture.

It strangely enough happens to end "right there!"
I mean, if they weren't going to plug it in somewhere else, then they should have tucked the cord behind Nissy or something, instead of letting it freely/visibly sit there... in that spot...
 

Okay... this feels awkward...
Anyways, that was my AAA Random Report.
I'm going to shut up now, this whole thing was just super random.

Oh yeah, if anyone wants to see my folder with more Calender scans, just ask and I'll give you the link.

I am soooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!!
I missed Miki so much. She's finally back from Taiwan! I hated being alone, I didn't think I was going to get through going a month without Miki. I'm glad she's finally back!

I hope she learned a lot from her study abroad program. Miki brought back tons of cool gifts for me. Check these out, Miki knows what I like:

OMG these are soooooooooooooo cute!!!!!Look... there's Zoro, Jack Skellington, Chopper, Sanji, Stitch, Thousand Sunny, Nami, and Luffy! Usopp is missing... so are the others... Miki knows I really like "One Piece" stuff. So she got me these really cool water-proof stickers. People in Taiwan stick these on their motorcycle helmets and cars. I don't know where to put them. I feel bad using them because they're so cool.


In the town Miki was staying in, there was a local artist that used this black cat as their signature character. It's so cute and violent! I love how the cat has a mouse on a cutting board (the picture on the button). It reminds me of my lovely black cat, Pikus. The picture on the left is a coaster. Isn't it cute?!
 
The rest of my gifts was doll clothes and chibi Gundams. Some of my gifts were food too.

Oh... Miki said she saw Wu Chun!!!
I don't know if she's pulling my leg or what (I'm super gullible). There needs to be some thorough investigation in this matter. I'm just really happy she's back! I love my gifts from Taiwan!!!

As promised, here is the Gundam I built.

For now, here's my BB330. This is the true form

And this is when the wings transform into a phoenix. He can ride the bird.
I built two, but my aunt forgot to give me the "Shin Mokoso" Gundam before I left work. That's the main reason you only see one Gundam instead of two. My poor chibi Gundam is all alone at work...

I would've put this up earlier, but my roommate kept hogging the internet. So there was a lot of connection errors.

epik_noodles: (Default)
Work was tiring today too, so I think I'm going to go straight to sleep after this.

Yeah... I've been ordering a lot of stuff lately.
Only a few days ago, I received my new AAA cds and the Naoya cards that won't seem to leave me alone... The day before that I got a KH: Birth by Sleep Keyblade necklace in the mail. And you know what? I'm expecting another package next month filled with AAA concert merch and goodies. In two weeks I'm expecting a package from Korea, I ordered another Zoid, the one I've always wanted (my dream Zoid), the Soul Tiger. I've also got one more package from an anime shop, which includes a "Soul Eater" plushie and a wallet with the characters on it.

Ha ha... I actually got a package today too!
My Chibi Gundams came in today!!!

I can't wait to build them tomorrow morning before I go to work!
And of course I'll put up pictures.

Good night!

For one...
I was expecting to get some shocked e-mail responses today.
I sent some random e-mails to a few friends, they we're more like surprises... I just hope I didn't scare everyone. People tend to freak out from my sudden e-mails.

One of the e-mails I wrote said:
"Yo! I'll be stopping by your place in 2 years! Get ready to get on the plane. When are you coming to Chicago? The Sears Tower got changed to the Willis Tower."

My e-mails never make sense!

Next thing I wasn't expecting...
Hey! Did anyone else know about this?!
Apparently, news got out in January.
Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is going to be released as an anime this fall!!!

Hey....... Doesn't this picture kind of look like the ad for "Hidarime Tantei EYE?"
Hmmmmm.... I wonder where they got that idea from?

This looks really cool. I'm loving the art style. The drawing style for the concept art looks like a combination between "Liar Game"  and "Kuroshitsuji." (don't ask) The art concept for the anime (although different from the manga) has a rustic and dark aura to it. I'm actually a fan of this type of art style. Dark and mysterious.

So, Shinrei Tantei Yakumo...

The drama: haven't seen very much of
The manga: hasn't been translated beyond volume 2

I'm looking forward to whichever fansub team gets it online first. I'm so excited, it gives me something else to watch besides "Kuroshitsuji II" and "Hetalia: World Series."

Edit: I just saw the anime trailer for Shinrei Tantei Yakumo...
IT IS HARDCORE AND TWISTED!!!
Me like
epik_noodles: (Sleepy)
Hahaha! I'm free.
Since I'm done with the one a day comics for now, I get to sit back and relax a little. I can take my time for the next upcoming one. Attack All Attackers is going to be so quiet the entire week without me.

This morning, I woke up a little early and I baked a pizza...
I dunno, I was in the mood for pizza?

I played on the computer for a bit and then went to go work on a Gundam model I had bought in Japan. After I only built the feet, I was dragged off to a Laosian temple. I don't speak Laosian, although most of our language was rooted from it. I had to pin money on the "money tree" for donation. It's a tradition to place money on fake trees to make it look like leaves.

The lady is putting more money on the tree. While on the right, that's just a close-up.

I got to work and worked.
There were a lot of customers today.
I just love it when customers write stuff of the receipts they give back.

This made me smile:

I KNOW I'M AWESOME!
It's from a few days ago, but I didn't have time to put it up.

But you know what isn't awesome?!
My strange fear of centipedes!!!!! No seriously, I hate centipedes!!! They coil and they crawl with all those freaky legs!!! I think I'm CURSED with bad luck today. In the middle of the day, after I got off the phone with a customer, I noticed something moving on the ground. I looked again..... and I saw a long thing with tons of legs... I started freaking out in front of all the customers. I'm not the kind to scream, screaming is rude and disruptive in a restaurant setting. Instead, I took a pen and used the blunt end to pin the centipede's hind legs so it couldn't go anywhere, I didn't want to kill it.

I had a combination of bursting into tears and laughing hysterically from being in shock and fear of being so close to the centipede, seeing as I'm still pinning it down with the pen. I started yelling for help from the employees. Instead... everyone ignored me and continued their own business. (you guys suck!) Then a nearby customer asked me what was wrong. I told him to go sit down because I need an employee (who is ignoring me) to help me. He then noticed the centipede I was pinning down. He then suggested that I lift the pen and he'll squash it. I immediately screamed, "NOOOOoooooooooo!!!" I told him I didn't want to kill it. So... he picked it up with his bare hand and tossed the centipede out the door... Problem solved... I wasn't expecting the customer to be that brave, did you know that most centipedes are poisonous?

The rest of my day...
I had some deliveries, the Olsons gave me a good amount for tip as they usually do. Today, Alex stopped by, the bartender from O'Briens(the bar next to us). He always orders something to take back to the bar. I always give him a big discount(cuz he sends his customers over to us every once and a while). Yay! Alex gave me a 3 dollar tip today! While I was talking to him, he told me that business has been pretty slow at the bar. But Tusk seemed to be packed and busy, unlike his place. I was thinking in my mind, "there will always be a higher demand for booze than Thai food." It was strange because that bar is always packed.

Now I'm in Chicago.
Bedtime!
I'll start working on the next Attack All Attackers comic soon.

I posted up the second illustrated interview on "Attack All Attackers."
This time it was Nishijima's interview. He was just saying random things. Next up is Chiaki's.
Oh yeah... about my comm's name, you know... it took nearly forever to come up with a name. Of course it needed to contain those three letters we love so much. I started coming up with just the most outrageous names. Would you believe that I nearly named it Atrocious Attacking Apples or Admirable Alligator Alliance?

Well... as long as my logo makes sense.

Today, I got to talk to Miki.
She's enjoying her time in Taiwan. I got to use a video call on Skype for the first time. I could see Miki's face and hear her voice. She was at Chi-an's place. I know because Chi-an kept walking behind Miki and kept yelling "hi" at me. School is good to I hear. They get to do a lot of field stuff. Miki's instructors lets them go out in the morning to go check out the markets. The world of culinary arts is fascinating! Pikus really missed Miki too. I put him in front of the webcam. After seeing and hearing Miki, he calmed down a bit.  Pikus has been restless because he gets worried when he knows the household is incomplete. If everyone isn't home together, he'll just pace around and not go to sleep. Now that he's seen Miki, he's chillaxed and everything, I just hope he goes to sleep.

I miss Miki!
We're supposed to talk again tomorrow.
But after tomorrow, Miki's class will be going on a field trip to a different region of Taiwan, which means she'll be out of Taipei.

It's Up!!!

Today...
"The Day of Infamy."
A day we will never forget.
A day the world will never forget.

Let us take a moment of silence...
...

According to a lesson in my psychology class, there's a small part of your brain that stores all your permanent memories. The memories that traumatically hurt you or changed your life. The horrible memories in which we want to forget, but cannot. The memories that torment you and remain with you forever. You can blame that stubborn section of your brain that refuses to let you forget.


We all remember where we were when 9/11 occurred.
I remembered where I was.
Of course, like most people, I didn't see the first plane.
Let me start my story:
I was at my middle school, I was only in 7th grade. It was still morning, but really close to noon, maybe around 8 - 9 am. Our class was watching some presentation made by the teachers. It was a reenactment of every decade of the 20th century. About halfway  through the play/presentation, the principal ran into the atrium yelling, "everyone to return to their classrooms, the World Trade Center has been hit!"

We all walked back to our classroom and flipped on the tv. After changing to a local news channel, the first thing we saw was the towers being covered by a thick cloud of smoke, the top of the building looked like a chimney. There were papers falling out of the sky like confetti and debris was flying everywhere. Then after watching for a few minutes, something horrifying happened, the other tower was struck by a second plane! Everyone in the classroom went silent, all of us were mortified. A few of my classmates began panicking and asking if the terrorist would ever attack a school. Of course we'd ask that, we were frightened children. Our teacher told us it was highly unlikely. After we watched for many hours, we continued what we had left of our school day. Other schools were dismissed early because of the tragedy, but not ours. I remember my mother hugging me tightly when I got back home. The news flash made her worry so much.

This is something that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
To the victims and brave rescue teams, may you rest in peace.
To the surviving police force and fire dept, we salute you.
God bless America!

It's so lonely and quiet over here in Chicago.
Miki departed from the airport today at noon. So in the end, she took up that study abroad program and left.

Ah man, I have no one to talk to. Now there's no one to back me up at work on Saturday. There isn't anyone to watch j-dramas with. There isn't anyone to play Mario Party with. There's no one to take me to delicious restaurants. There's no one to hang out with...

When we were at O'Hare Airport today, Miki and I snuck off to terminal 5 to go buy something from McDonalds. We have a habit of eating at the airport, particularly at McDonalds. For sure, I know Miki's going to meet up with Chi-an when she gets to Taiwan.

The house just feels empty, now that Miki won't be back for a long while.
Before she went through security, these were my final words:

"Study hard...
Have fun...
and...
GO STALK WU CHUN!"

Aren't I an awesome sister?

Ya know, I was a little surprised about Miki wanting to go to Taiwan immediately. I mean, we just got back from Japan, yeah, we came back from that same general area. Leaving so soon? Phobia of flying to top off that equation too. Although, not complaining because I'm just as afraid of airplanes too.

Oh, by the way, Maciek's coming over early in the morning tomorrow to help me with web stuff. I called Jason earlier today. Jason already moved into his dorm, now he's at DePaul University. According to him, he got the best room. I can't wait to see his dorm room, he said he can have visitors.

Ever since I got back to Chicago from Bridge Bash, the internet has been dead. We forgot to pay the bill again! Seeing as how yesterday was Labor Day, the Comcast Office was closed. Stupid Comcast. We couldn't pay yesterday or the day before. I had no regular internet access, but I did have internet on my phone. The problem is, I can't post stuff on here from my phone. I tried and it just doesn't work.

I apologize for not being able to respond to everyone's messages immediately.
I'm also sorry, Jason, I didn't send that e-mail until now. I just sent that international check to Arata for my Black Rock Shooter figures.

I'm going to go work on my comm's stuff and my reflection paper for psychology class. I hope Prof. Townsend doesn't bring that jar with the brain in it, it looks squishy and gross.

Miki got me a really nice Venus Fly Trap for my birthday and I really love it. It's beautiful yet freaky at the same time. It looks very prehistoric.There's something about carnivorous plants that make them really cool.
This is the one sitting in the kitchen.

I just think Venus Fly Traps are awesome! They hunt their own food and their complex jaw snapping system makes them even more amazing! It's as if they're alive.

I even drew a picture of me and my wonderful plant, because I love it so much!


Anyways, yesterday wasn't a very fun day at work. I was busy because I was on a lot of deliveries. There were a lot of dine-in customers too, but I had one crazy food delivery adventure I won't be forgetting about in a long while.

So okay, there's one house on a usual street which we deliver to once every other week or so. It's a really nice family. They stop by to eat too, but they mostly get take-out or delivery. They ordered food yesterday and I went on the delivery route. The house I was delivering to has a big guard dog. The dog is on an invisible fence. You know, the dog has a sensor collar that prevents it from crossing over a digital preset perimeter barrier. After I got out of the car, the dog in the yard sees me and starts growling and barking ferociously. I walk closer to the house and the dog paces back and forth at the border of the invisible barrier. When I was several yards away, the dog started to shake his head really fast. As the dog shook his head... the invis. fence collar slides off the dog's neck and plops onto the ground... My reaction was: "OH SNAP..." The dog began to growl and walk towards me... Then the dog began to chase me all over the yard. He was snapping his jaws at me and didn't want me to escape. I had to run all over the yard, hoping not to get attacked/mauled while still carrying the delivery food. I could not wear this dog down, it would not give up. The owners could probably hear me screaming, "NO, NO, NO, NICE DOGGY, GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!"  I made it to the doorstep. Eventually, the dog jumped on me when I rang the doorbell.

I delivered the food and told the owner that the dog was currently biting my pants and the collar had fallen off in the driveway. How strange that the dog's collar fell off when I was there.

My back and arms are hurting a bit, I'll figure out what else to write tomorrow.
