Droolworthy bag

Saw a guy wearing a very cool bag; leather belt like strap that goes down both the sides. nice rectangular shape; interesting concave zip top - folds over as a shallow flap so the overall shape is still rectangular.
I stared hard at the bag but couldn't read the brand. probably looked a bit odd staring at this guy's bag. (-.-;)

Shirt of the day

Sumida River Hanabi

I wore a yukata for the first time. It's quite complicated to put on. It was very fun though. Tsuneko arranged it all, borrowing it from a friend. She did a lovely job helping me put it on. she took pictures too.

The sumida river fireworks were lovely. they had very pretty twirly glittery ones that end up in little fan shapes.

Long Vacation

This famous Japanese drama is probably 10 years old by now. At least 8 years old.

I watched the first episode. It was really good! Higher quality than a lot of the stuff on TV right now. The main actress Yamaguchi is really cute, I like her character a lot. She's quite a good actress. The episode seemed an hour and a half long though.

I watched it all in Japanese, as it was faster than reading the Chinese subtitles.

Anyone ever slam into train doors trying to catch one?

Random tidbits: my kenneth cole wallet was fashionable but didn't last that long.

There was a McDonalds deal: chicken mcnuggets 5 for 100 yen, yum!

On July 23, it smelled like scallion pancakes. Scallion pancakes are good.

sunkus drinks

Sunkus (convenience store), has a really boring selection of drinks. The one at 中野坂上 near work doesn't even have the lemon tea flavor of "Afternoon Tea". They only have the darker, more bitter version, and probably the milk tea flavor.

They have a nice selection of おにぎり (rice balls) though. I tried the anago one today. The unagi (freshwater grilled eel) one is also pretty good.

I am banned from buying any new non-necessities for myself. I lose stuff too easily. I stopped carrying around my dictionary as I am afraid that I will lose it. I'll just bring it when I study Japanese. Maybe it would be good to put everything on long chains attached to my purse or whatever. Then it would be much harder to lose. I think I'll do that. Laf.
