in which I buy flavors of pretz that I don’t even like, just so I can have Kaoru watching me on my computer.
Now to scour all the stores in the area for a Shinji to hang with him.
(this new eva movie is going to be the death of
me my wallet)
I am watching a show with a bunch of talent in costumes— four dressed up in kigurumi of dogs (I think?) and one as Spiderman. They are being made to do random stunts on this slippery slide with a ball pit at the bottom.
When I actually paid attention, I noticed that all of them seemed to be holding something into their chests, like where their nipples should be. Like something was folded up there? It makes it difficult for them to balance/etc because they basically have to keep their hands over their nipple the whole time.
Then one of them falls down and loses hold of his nipples. And two tubular “breasts” pop out, like the streamers-in-a-can prank.
I bother to read the random words on the screen— instead of スパイダーマン he is オッパイマン (that is, mashing together the words for ‘breast’ and ‘Spiderman’).
Finally, the “Spiderman” lost control of his breasts… and webbing shot out of them.
The nipples fell off and webbing shot out.
Of his tubular breasts.
Spiderman’s breasts shoot webbing.
This is a legit promo for the film being released here in Japan, btw.
(apparently the show’s name is ピカルの定理)
In Japan, Father’s Day seems to be all about giving your father food and booze. Mothers get ‘thank you for giving birth to me’ but Fathers just get a normal ‘thanks for everything.’ I dunno, somehow that feels uneven to me.
It’s also interesting to me, cuz I can’t imagine an ad for Father’s Day in America encouraging small children to give their father alcohol as a present. Any such image would be really sad in America, actually— but in Japan, totally normal.
I’m making Japanese pickles. I don’t even like Japanese pickles. But I keep seeing this damn commercial and I really like how the woman says pickles on it (it’s also a play on the word for vinegar in Japanese), and I have soooo many veggies for soooo cheap and need a way to use them all up faster!!! So, pickles it is.
There is so little liquid in the tomato one cuz I ran out of sugar, will have to get more soon, cuz I also wanted to try pickling cabbage and bean sprouts…
Redid the flowers in my Totoro pots for summer! And finally found florist foam (heh, alliteration), so everything stays up much more nicely.
I really love the Morning Glories climbing up the bamboo sticks ^_^
In the very least, I really want something like this. it’s like a fancy jewelry box, but for make up!!! I saw a thing like this at my recycle shop but stopped myself from buying it, and now I’m kicking myself for that, cuz omg it looks so useful and amazing >_<
My desire for this piece of furniture is probably more than it should. But just look at it. It is made to hold all of your make up, hair and beauty products, as well as having a built-in mirror, tissue box and garbage can. It’s on wheels. You can place it where ever you want and get yourself ready to go out. So organized. So cute. So much feels in me right now!!!
it fits soooo many comics, AND closes neatly to hide your otaku-ness, AND has a lock. To stop people from snooping or to keep them from stealing???
Either way, this seems like a piece of furniture I need in my life.

My brother and I used to watch this show every week when I lived in Japan as a child. I only remember random details about it (like the little girl in pink), and we obviously only vaguely followed the storyline (not actually being able to speak Japanese). But I still feel like this was a major part of my childhood.
For some reason, I really remember this ending song, more so than the opening.
I am on the verge of just buying the DVD box set of this to watch it again. It’s silly but I feel like I will learn/figure something out about myself from reviewing this part of my childhood.
