The Fad I'm Glad to Miss


Over the past two weeks I've found myself thinking, "Last year, at this time, I was in Japan" quite a bit. It's a bittersweet natsukashii, or nostalgic, feeling. While sometimes I see a dorama/music video/quiz show that makes me wish I were back in Japan, now and then something comes along that makes me glad I'm back home:



This ad is all of the rage in Japan now, the media you cannot escape. These girls even perform the ad live on morning and variety programs. Crazy, eh?

As for the move, it went really really smoothly. We had six people total and it took two hours for two van loads. The couch (!) also arrived yesterday, and the cable guy came in to do his thing. Today is a lot of unpacking and settling in.

The apartment is awesome--Mark and I are taking such joy in the little details. Things like the bathroom actually being a walk away from the bedroom, having a couch to nap on, a rug in front of the couch to put your feet on, a kitchen with actual drawers. Not to mention being able to stretch without smacking something or someone. -_^

It's my day off, but the city is calling me--time to do some shopping! ^_^

so - do we ever figure out what they're advertizing?
 
Eeep, I forgot to say! It's a kind of sauce to put on noodles, I believe.
