Pre New Year’s Resolution

My resolution for the start of the new decade is to improve my Japanese. The husband suggested keeping a daily diary in a notebook, that bound thing full of paper. Which he will correct later. So we went to Family Mart and bought an adorable 100 yen Muji notebook.

Here’s my first sentence, timed for tomorrow night’s bounenkai with Green Eyed Geisha:


(As preparation for the long anticipated trip to the heart of male vanity, I have been watching Suddenly Last Summer on Youtube. GEG, out of kimono, will be my Liz Taylor. I hope that our elaborately coiffed hosts do not consume me like the cannibals who “devoured” Liz’s cousin. Liz is not only gorgeous, but this role foreshadows her real life career as beard to Montgomery Clift, Rock Hudson, and Malcolm Forbes. Katherine Hepburn plays the perfectly in denial mother, and Liz truly “chews the drapes.”)


  1. Thank you, GEG! Could you also protect me against cannibals?

    And btw, thank you for suggesting you’ll introduce me and explain my presence as your cousin who is accompanying you on your “first time.”

    That sounds nicer than uncle. I defer to your language skills and false innocence in setting up this much anticipated treat!

  2. T.T I wanna meet up with you! XD One day!

    You have Family Mart in Japan? Is it Japanese? What about 7-11.

    This is a story for another time, but I spent the entire night in Family Mart with the French boy at my school to get Super Junior tickets. I never thought I’d ever do that in my life. XD
