uncomfortable

current mood: uncomfortable

Jupiter was especially bright this week. It sparkled brightly just after sunset, a hopeful sight out my rear window. Jupiter's astrological influence is supposed to be happiness. I'm just not feeling it.

I nearly squished a little raccoon yesterday. I carried out a 30-pound box containing my old receiver, and without looking in the dumpster my tired arms just let it go. When I looked in, the frightened creature was sitting in the corner, teddy-bear style, clutching a half-chewed carrot. I'm not sure which one of us was more startled. So I got a new receiver, because when I get sad, I shop. That new DVD player was both a blessing and a curse because it made me want an overdue upgrade. Now I'm enjoying decoded dts just like any other 21st century consumer. Next time though, I'll be more careful about the local wildlife.

Someone's got a birthday coming up! Today's post is for him. Scans today from... I have no idea. I suspect the clippings are from two early 90s issues of Rockin' On Japan. But maybe not.

Scans of two articles. The first pits Imai Hisashi against Fujii Maki of Soft Ballet and Schaft. The second pairs Imai with Yukihiro Takahashi, drummer and vocalist of the Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Hope happiness arrives to everyone for the weekend, time to rest, relax and do nothing but drool and *squee* ^___^

I'm so overwhelmed by sounds right now XD There are almost too many listening options! I'm relieved that poor little tanuki was unharmed. How on earth it survives around here is a mystery.

I love Imai looking like a little blond pixie. I expect there will be more of him in my weekend. I hope yours is wonderful!

Hubby has the surround sound set up in the living room and we watched Transformers over the weekend. Sound all around you.

♥ watching my B-T DVD's on the big screen with surround sound, though I usually have to wait for the family to be gone which is seldom...then I can drool and *squee* in private..*giggles*

Glad the Tanuki is fine, I've seen them in our neighborhood, they run around and can be quite vicious at times. The other week, I saw a skunk running around as I was heading off to work. Don't want to mess with skunks..

Oh yea, Imai looks so cute as the blonde pixie. :D Hope you had a great weekend!!

The important thing is you didn't hurt the little guy, so all is good. :)

Thanks for the scans! Seeing them is always a great way for me to brighten up my day. :)

True! Not one hair on his furry little head was harmed. I just felt bad for scaring him. Then I stopped to stare cause he was so cute. Then I quickly moved away when I remembered that they've been known to bite people.

Happy to add that little bright spot :D

I have to ask you one question - where do you live, that you have raccoons and other wild animals walking on the streets just like that???
Imai looks like a spoiled brat on those pics. Just CUTE!

I'm a city girl - I live on the outskirts of Boston. Wild animals aren't supposed to live here, and yet they manage to survive. The raccoon was a first for me though! Recently some nasty gangs of geese have taken over the highways. I was stopped by a pack of them blocking the road. Where did they come from???

【not GLAMOROUS】

i think he means more specifically, gum...XD and yeah, he says he hates stupid girls, noisy girls, young(?) girls, slutty girls, selfish/egotistical girls, and uh..ack i won't even bother with the rest of the kanji, hahaha. he hates a lot of things from girls. maybe that's why he is still single and writing love songs all the time. =____= bad experiences and pickyness??

woahhh racoon =3=; i have some of those outside my window, but never seen one almost get squished. those guys are louder than my cats screechinggg

maimai♥ look at those boyish looks, you. fwah~
you know, i like his current hair, but i wish he'd go back to this. looking all young and boyish and 12 years old. hopefully he will change or cut it. haha. i bet sakurai braids his hair. x: i wish he'd put it up in a ponytail sometime. curly/wild hair is awesome picked up.

That was my first raccoon. So cute! I don't usually see (or hear) many animals around here. Louder than screeching cats you say? Maybe its good that we don't have many.

Aww... Our Maimai has grown up. I miss his boyishness too. i bet sakurai braids his hair. x: Couldn't stop laughing at the thought of that!
