idk if i like how this came out

Small, slightly obscure, but really cool thing that happens in episode 1 of Yuri!!! On Ice that I don’t think a lot of people caught:

The snow.

They probably weren’t watching the weather forecast there in the first two shots, they were watching the news. This cold front came literally out of nowhere, as, like the announcer says, it was supposed to be a perfect day for hanami, ergo going for a picnic to watch the cherry blossoms. But instead, lots of snow.

Now, for those of you who live in colder areas, like myself, you probably just went “well, unseasonal snow happens sometimes, I remember once we had snow in mid-May.”

For those of you who live in warmer areas, you probably went “idk how snow works, so I guess that sounds legit???”

No.

Snow in April on fucking Kyushu is beyond ridiculous, okay. They barely even get snow in the actual winter months. This is happening on April 11th - or even later - and they should be having temperatures in the 15-20°C/60-68°F range - or maybe even higher. And they probably were, before this. That’s why Yuuri’s so surprised and confused.

So why would they even bother including this?

Victor. It’s all about Victor.

In part, I suspect it’s a literary/poetry reference, even if I can’t quite place it, because “he came from the north, bringing ice and snow” is something of a universal literary image.

But mostly, it’s because, in Japanese, when someone does something highly unexpected and uncharacteristic, like, say, me cleaning my room, you express your surprise by saying “wow, does this mean it’s gonna snow tomorrow?”

And it didn’t just snow. It snowed a lot. It’s a reference to how ridiculously unexpected it is for Victor to wanna coach instead of skating himself, for him to show up in Japan out of the blue.

yesterday my roommate found and subsequently lost a cockroach in our dorm and then left me alone to deal with it

so i googled some shit and fucking macgver’d the hell out of a roach trap with a salsa jar, some soda, and a packet of KY lube

when brett got home at like 2am i was fuckin hellishly explaining in precise detail how the trap worked (i was very very sleep deprived) as the roach would be able to climb up the paper towel wrapped around the outside of the jar to satisfy his lust for soda, but once he got in there’d be no escape as he would be unable to scale my lubricated glass jar walls. i guaranteed (a little hastily) that this would catch him overnight with 100% certainty

this morning when i got out of bed my first and only thought was to go check and see if i got him and it was in that moment i stopped and kinda felt like i hit the pinnacle of college lifestyle. what the fuck was i doing. like what kind of life was i leading where i am getting up at 8 in the morning out of pure exhilaration like a fucking child on christmas morning checking if santa came and left presents under the tree except i’m going to check the garbage salsa jar to see if theres a well lubricated roach slurpin on my soda. what life am i living where that end result would be the highlight of my day, would feel like an achievement

anyways the roach isnt in the jar and im disappointed
