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 ^_^

メイクアップボックス
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!!!

April(エイプリル) 2WAYショルダーバッグ アクロス

ain’t gonna lie, I really, really want this purse.  Not that I actually *need* a new purse, I am just at that point where I feel like I want/need a new one (this is why I can’t let myself buy legitimate and luxurious bags).  Also, it has my name, so c’mon.

大量コミック収納
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.

Shin Bikkuriman ED (by eitoh1952)

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.

random pretty flower I saw while walking around my neighborhood.  I love the smell of spring.

Anyone know what this is?

I kept seeing issues of this new magazine called Kera Boku, which I was assumed was Kera-for-boys (Kera being a fashion magazine that showcases various kinds of street fashion— from ‘punk’ to gothic to lolita and beyond). Then I finally noticed the tag line in one of the ads for the new magazine in my latest issue of Kera:
”男のコのスタイル”に変身したい女のコのためのファッションBOOK
(Fashion book for girls that want to dress in/turn into ‘boy style’)
Or, as I like to think of it, PORN MADE JUST FOR MEEEEE.
Whenever a Japanese person asks me my ‘type’, I will just find the cutest model in this magazine and point to her, no other explanation.
I will need to consume large amounts of raw liver before purchasing this magazine (oh, I shall acquire it!) in order to counteract all of the nosebleeds it is sure to cause.
(and if you got the Maria Holic reference, you get a virtual cookie)

This would be the vegetable stand I like the most ^_^

This is what my bike usually looks like when I come back from the library in Gumyouji on the weekends.  The stores over there are so cheap!! I bought 2 weeks worth of vegetables for only about 1500円!  I probably didn’t really need the gobou though (that’s the huge stick/root sticking up in the back there), but goddammit I ate it!
