The colors of Flower Boy Next Door

I was originally writing this on my phone. After I posted it to tumblr, I realized, “Ah, I have a blog to post these kind of things!” So here it goes, replete with picture proofs.

I was watching the finale of Flower Boy Next Door last night and it kept jumping out at me how perfect this orange-blue color platelet looked.

Hi friends, readers and passersby! Have you all been feeding your drama addiction while I’m gone?

What’s that? You were sad to see me disappear without so much as a warning? You broke your mouse hitting the refresh button hoping for an update? Oh that’s very kind of you (and narcissistic of me — c’mon let me feel self-important for a moment will ya?).

Well, I’ve been busy. I went on a vacation, moved from one place to another, and… surprise! I’m moving again in a few days (yeah it’s been stress and stress). So when life settles, I’ll be back and hopefully find my old sense of humor and a good drama to recap (or if I can’t find one, finish the many unfinished drafts already sitting on my hard drive). Meanwhile, what’s everybody been watching? Sungkyunkwan Scandal? Queen of Reversals?
