Since Friday, I’ve been trying to get some of my art projects that I have lined up done. I only managed to finish two, though, since Saturday night turned into drunken Mariokart time, haha. Set me back a little from my goal, but it was fun. Anyway, my goal to finish at least three more is by the end of this week.



This is the eldest kitty of the house, Omi. He’ll be 10 this year!

That white thing you see by his mouth is his fang. Omi has one long fang. Gives him character..and more drool.

己龍 Lucky Bag


Received my Kiryu lucky bag today. Usually, at the beginning of the year, they have bags you can purchase that have random tour goods in them. This year, I was lucky enough to snag one. Not more than 15 minutes after they went on sale, they had already sold out. This one had lots of good stuff in it, but the little towel is something I’ve been wanting the most, so I’m extremely happy to have ended up with it!

Now off to bed. I shall resume with Phantom tomorrow.



Today I received Kiryu’s new live DVD! It’s something I’ve been very eager to watch, so of course I watched it as soon as I could after dinner.


Their concerts are always so interesting and exciting to watch. They always have such fitting and gorgeous stage scenery for their music.


I want to watch it again to give a proper review, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! They’re always fun, so I hope I get a chance to see them at some point, maybe this year if things work out. Annual trip to Japan plans are still kind of up in the air at the moment.

One more picture because Mahiro’s smile is too cute not to post.




The florist I bought my hand cream from also gave me a pretty carnation for visiting. It is now sitting on my desk all pretty in a Midori bottle.

And my roommates thought I was weird for washing out and keeping old alcohol bottles. Their carnations are also in Midori bottles, haha. Who needs a vase.
