I’m crying with you, Koto’oshu. Sad to see you leave the sumo world, you sexy Bulgarian. (Thanks to husband for tip).
Kim Jong Un has some big loafers to fill. Getting uniformed kids to cry is a step in the right direction.
This sign at the JR Nakano station really had me wondering what has happened to my beloved ward. This station, far more than the Seibu Shinjuku or Marunouchi lines, is the heartbeat that animates our local lives.
Poor Bunny is at once crying and carrying a big stick, while this bicycle is stuck in her transparent womb.
If Bunny can be violated, what could happen to us mere mortals? Should I be concerned about my safety, too?
The husband and M both pointed me to this video. Worth watching! First Wentz’ (male) friends feed him as he shouts “umai” (tasty), then one friend gives him food with so much wasabi his jaw goes slack, you can see the food in his mouth, and he cries. OMG! Dim-witted hasn’t looked this good since Keanu stopped being young!
Call me shallow, which my husband often does, but I was disappointed that Japan’s new Prime Minister Hatoyama, who defeated the long ruling LDP in a landslide yesterday, has the looks and charisma of a dead fish. So of course I was thrilled that the TV news coverage included endless coverage of former PM Koizumi’s attractive TV star son who managed to inherit daddy’s seat in a rare LDP and father-son win.
My favorite part of the coverage was when the expertly coiffed son teared up at a campaign press conference. This clip was on constant rotation last night. The boy knows how to act! If anyone can find the Youtube clip, I would be thrilled to post it. Here’s a small still:
Shinjiro, can you become the John-John Kennedy of Japan?
I also savored the grumpy old men who lost and complained that they were defeated by “assassin” female candidates who “stole” votes because they were young and pretty. Although I doubt the new party will change much, if anything, it was satisfying to see the old guard lamenting their lack of appeal.
Here’s one English language video clip about Koizumi Shinjiro and daddy-son politics in Japan.
Happy Father’s Day. Please do not cry. Today is Father’s Day. What activities make dad happy? Let’s have only tears of joy. Best wishes.
