White and Gold or Blue and Black? This Dress is Driving Me Nuts

What color is this dress??? Seriously? Had the tab open to this page, and I was sure I saw WHITE AND GOLD.

I went to the bathroom, and the next thing I know, the dress is BLUE AND BLACK.

I experimented with my officemates by opening the picture on my computer screen and having them look.

5 Men say: White and Gold
5 Women say: Blue and Black

Is it a sex difference thing?

I furthered my research, and some claim that "scientists" explain this phenomenon as a side effect of one's emotional state. If you see Blue and Black, it's because you're stressed. If you see white and gold, you're calm and happy.

But what's the true color of the dress? Gizmodo peeps used photoshop's eyedropper tool and it identified the dress to be BLUE. No more arguing with that. But people are still seeing the white and gold.

I Must Have an Addict Gene in Me

I used to stay up until 4AM when my brother's away. That's because the Playstation 2 is in his room and I binge on all the JRPGs I can play while he's not around. I tend to lock myself away playing, to the point that my face got sunburned by the TV rays... well, I was told that I looked suddenly darker after my gaming spree.

Anyway, with the muse nowhere in sight and my fingers not feeling like producing poetry and fiction, I've been like an addict experiencing withdrawal symptoms after playing Hearthstone all weekend on my mom's ipad mini. I don't live at home during weekdays so I don't have an ipad to come home to so I can keep playing after work. I broke down my gaming laptop last year and don't have the cash to blow on a new lappie just yet.

I'm a scavenger, using my boyfriend's desktop and mom's ipad to get me by the dry season of artistry. Holy shit I can't believe I'm looking at 2nd hand ipads and Nintendo DSs because they're more affordable than a new PC. No no no what's happening?? :P

Going to Japan on Friday

Half-packed my bags (not yet done). Made a checklist of things to bring. Reviewed my hiragana and katakana. Still know how to count and ask for a discount... Loaded with excitement!

I've always wanted to visit Japan, being an anime lover and fan of JRPGs.


Day 1, Friday

We're going ryokan style to really get a feel of the culture. So after checking in, we're heading right on over to Studio Ghibli. We've already asked our host to get tickets for us so there's no dilly dallying. Friday was the only day with tickets still available in the next 6 days!

Day 2, Saturday

Victor and I will be checking out Ueno Zoo. I want to see pandas! I keep watching panda YouTube videos and it's about time to see a real live one. Maybe we'll visit an onsen after our zoo escapade.

Day 3, Sunday

We've booked a bike tour that lasts for around 6 hours. Hopefully my cardio is good enough for this. The route: Nihonbashi, Ningyo-cho, Ryogoku, Asakusa, Ueno, Hongo, Kanda, Shinbashi. Check em out here.

Day 4, Monday

Of course, Akihabara is included in the itinerary, being that both Victor and I are geeks. Yodobashi Camera: The Leisure Hive is on the path. We're checking out some of the snazzy cafes, like the Gundam Cafe, too.

Day 5, Tuesday

If we still have money left, maybe Tokyo Disneyland. But We're probably gonna be broke by now, so we might be found wandering the streets like el cheapos.

Day 6, Wednesday

We're flying back home this day. So we'll enjoy Japan air while we wait for our flight. :P

I'll post the photos and experiences as they come.
