Bleary. Words for wear and tear

Barf and sickness has plagued the household this week. I manage to escape it, always, but I feel a bit funny.

Here are some photos.Takoyaki.
Octopus balls. with cabbage, flour, egg, spices.
I want to buy that machine and do the American thing: make "pancake puffs" with a bit of chocolate, maybe a strawberry inside. Now doesn't that sound scrummy?



Asakusabashi.

Big shrine, over the holidays. Lots of tourists, many gaijin (foreigners) there. I am actually at the shrine, looking out at the entrance.


Is this the biggest aloe vera plant you ever saw? They have flowers? Why does blogger make my type blue and underlined?



Ok, is this not the tiniest car ever?



This is a random school paper, one of many hung up in the hallway of the boys school. I believe this was written by a Kindergardener or 1st grade. Cute.

Good night all!

Trina, Ira, et al,

Where have you been? We await with bated breath you next post. Perhaps you should try letting dear Celia add a post or two or maybe even her own blog to rival her newspaper/magazine, the Japan Post.
