NYT article about the circle lens fad.

Putting aside my "lolwhut" reaction to the ladies they interviewed for the article (from the girls that swore by circle lenses to the FDA representative that had no clue what they were)... Big eyes ain't all they cracked up to be, aiight?! One of my classmates in elementary school told me, "You're not really Asian, your eyes are too big!" which made me cry and has given me an eye-complex ever since. (I was in first grade, okay?)

So whenever I hear about people wanting doe-eyes, I just kind of go DDDDD: BE PREPARED TO BE CARDED AT THE AGE OF 40 at them.

Although those purple ones are pretty awesome, ngl.

Looking back on it, I could have chosen a SuperUltimate!OTP for this day, but since I already found the graphic for this pairing I'll talk about them instead. (That particular SU!OTP doesn't really fit any of the days in this meme anyway. It defies things like mere memes with its badassery; let's just leave it at that.)

day.07 - The most heartbreaking scene?

Chihiro Aoi/Sakuya Shiina [Hoshi wa Utau]

Chihiro and Sakuya's scene in the lake definitely tugged at my heartstrings when I first read it, especially after the emotional trainwreck that was Chihiro's flashback to his past. It's one of my favorite scenes in the manga, because Chihiro finally opened up to Sakuya (or anybody, rather) and let out the feelings that he had slowly been bottling up inside himself for years.

The tag line for Hoshi wa Utau is "a diary of one-sided love" so it's glaringly obvious that this ship is going to crash and burn, but I can't help wishing for a happy ending for these two lonely people anyway. Because seriously, they've had pretty shitty lives. (Is there any character in a Natsuki Takaya series that didn't have an angsty past with their family? Even Tohru had some traumatizing experiences with her family.)

The rest of the days:
# Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage?
# Day 09 - The most believable relationship?
# Day 10 - Why aren't these two married in real life?
# Day 11 - What is your dream pairing?
# Day 12 - Who had the best wedding?
# Day 13 - What is your favorite television pairing?
# Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing?
# Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?
# Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?
# Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?
# Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing?
# Day 19 - A pairing you've rooted for since the beginning?
# Day 20 - The "can't stand the sexual tension anymore" pairing?
# Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why?
# Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?
# Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?
# Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?
# Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?
# Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?
# Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
# Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
# Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?
# Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!

Tomorrow's choice should be ridiculously obvious, btw. Just saying.
