I'm only now looking through my computer and, apparently, at one point, I downloaded the first chapter of a manga called 'BxB Boys'. I don't know why I did that, because it's certainly not something I would've chosen on my own, but it's cute, funny and...uh, inspirational. I haven't seen it in a bookstore though and I don't know how to pronounce the title, so I couldn't ask for it. I don't know if it has furigana or not either. I'll read ones I really like even if they don't have furigana (Dolls, Weiss Side B, Loveless and, now, Princess Princess), but otherwise it's just too slow-going.

Speaking of which, I've got two WSB translations to post. However, although I planned to go backwards, I've run out of magazines. If anyone has scans of chapter #28 or below (but not the tankouban -- I have them!), please let me know!

We watched Yakitate!! Japan last night... They went to CHIBA! Specifically Tomiura, which is famous for biwa. This doesn't refer to Japanese lutes, but a type of Japanese plum (loquat). And yeah, I had to look that up! ^^;; Kuroyan got two different tart types (hot and cold) at the same time, which seems to have opened up a portal to Middle Earth. Also, am I the only one that thinks that Kuroyan is... well, rather nice? I like to think of it as the Koyasu Takehito Effect because, well, really...

Please rate Kuroyanagi's hotness.

I've no feelings either way.
Yes, I'm paying attention.
Radio button!

Thank you for letting me get that poll out of my system.

I've had two days off, but I've done nothing! This is mostly to do with the fact that, at the back of my mind, I still don't really believe I'm not going to try for Tenimyu tickets on Yahoo Auctions. *sigh* So I might need a bit of extra money later...

I don't suppose anyone could tell me how to do a bank or postal transfer? Just in case!

(And if I've no plans to do this, why have I spent so long adding the best auctions to my watchlist...?)

Anyway. I've mostly just studied Japanese and written some things. What do other people do on their days off? I don't know anyone else here who has the same days off as me... Plus 'no tickets angst' has made me kind of restless. ^^

Maybe some sightseeing? Perhaps I could do that meme where people tell you to take a picture of something specific? That might actually be a fun way to spend my days off!

So... what would you like me to take a picture of? Anywhere in Tokyo/Chiba/Shinagawa is good, although that might mean one photo a week...
