wednesday_10_00: (snow)
snowpocalyspe (2)
(That blur of fog at the end of the driveway is the cloud of snow from the snowblower. You can't see Dad running it, because the snow bank is too high.)

So, on top of the two feet or whatever of snow we got dumped on us, the temperature is currently -2, with wind chills in the -20 to -30 range. Hurray for the best timed storm ever, which came in the evening after I landed and hit hard enough to give me two extra days of vacation since my school (and basically everything else in the area) is closed.

Meanwhile, I'm spending as much time as possible curled up in a chair with Wednesday and a large pile of new manga and doujinshi.

welcome home snuggles

Shopping orgy '13 report(s) to follow, eventually.
wednesday_10_00: (misaki - book love)
Since Taiyousha finally(?) posted their release list for December manga, I feel like my shopping list is in pretty good shape, so... here it is. Obviously I will continue to add (and hopefully remove!) titles as we get closer to the trip, but let's call this version 1.0 (officially out of beta testing).

1. Due to my pact with [livejournal.com profile] mangaroo, I can't reveal the meaning behind my color-coding system. I might give some hints if you ask real nice and promise not to guess which color might be out of print titles.

2. I have way (waaaaaay) too much shoujo on my list, so I'm officially soliciting opinions on which series are the best to buy.

3. This was me trying to make my list shorter...?? orz I definitely have some trimming to do.
wednesday_10_00: (covered in cats)
I heard that Japan imposed a curfew on cat cafes, so I went looking for information about this (because I totally want to check out a cat cafe during the next Japan trip--Sara, are you with me?). Anyway, the first article google turns up contains this (from a guy who was too embarrassed to give his name, lol), which for some reason I find really hilarious:

“In many ways, these cat cafés are like hostess clubs. The cats all have names and their profiles written up in a book, and everyone has a favorite host or hostess. Instead of buying champagne for the girls, you buy cat food for your favorite babe," he said. "However, touching the pussycats is not allowed. You can look and they can crawl all over you, but picking them up or hugging them is a big no-no."
