  • The past week or two I've been in slumpsville, generally just not feeling very good about myself. Ugh. Seem to be beating it, though.

  • Katsushi was out of the house Saturday night, so I had the night to myself. I ate Thai curry, had some wine, and had feelings about music. It was wonderful.

  • Went to the bookstore on Sunday and got the final volumes of Full Metal Alchemist, as well as the final volume of Kuu Neru Futari Sumu Futari. Finished them both up over the weekend and indulged in some happy tears at their conclusions. Such good series. Both are keepers that I know I will be coming back to again and again.

  • Randomly found instant hummus mix at an import/gourmet store on the same outing. I was a bit skeptical, but curiosity won in the end, so I stopped in at my favorite bakery and got a nice baguette to go with. We've been eating it this week, and it's just...alright. Has a powdery texture, but the flavor is close enough to the real thing. Not bad considering you can't really BUY fresh hummus here. Next time I want to try and just make it myself, though.

  • I started watching Steven Universe last weekend. WHY IS IT SO CUTE? I can't stop, and have a feeling I'll be all caught up by the end of this coming weekend. It makes me so happy.

  • Monday I walked to Esaka and got some delicious cream pan (cream filled sweet bread). The bakery Katsushi and I like there has THE BEST cream pan, the cream being closer to what you find in a cream puff than the standard custard. The cream is overflowing and EPIC. UNF.

  • So I've currently blocked the game news blogs I have a tendency of over-reading (and that often post click-baity not-really-news news), but I'm still letting myself hear news through the grapevine. Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised on twitter to hear that Star Ocean 5 was announced! That's something to look forward to. It's supposed to take place between 2 and 3, so maybe that'll give me the motivation I need to go back to 1 and 2 and actually finish them this time? XD

  • Survived my first day of kids yesterday mostly unscathed, though I made a sensitive girl cry over my no Japanese rule. Whoops.
