Ice crystals on the living room window.

Snow (3)

8 a.m. Finally some sunlight! There was even sunlight throughout the day! Yay~! However, the snow on the ground still scares me away from driving. Meaning: still stuck.

The house phone has been down for 3 days. Telus finally sent someone to fix it. It took them 4 hours! They had to work on the outside line. The situation started on Saturday night. The phone disconnected itself in the middle of a call. Funny, the first comment the guy gave was "so it happened when the snow started". Hmm... So it WAS the snow...

3 days after the flu shot, my arm is no longer sore, but still bruised.

Looks nice, but it's hell outside... Cold, wet, slippery and grey.

8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Oh my god... too much snow too soon. It's so grey... (And my bones ache...)

Flu shot

It's the annual event of flu shot today... oops, it's past 12, so it's yesterday. Injection in the muscle always hurts more, but this time it wasn't too bad. My arm is still sore, but functional. It does bug me quite a bit when cutting paper for Christmas card. Yup.. so broke, can't spare money to buy any new ones.

Gum tape cat

Poor cat... but it's funny. (Hey isn't that Totoro's music!?)
Actually the title is "the Heaviest Gum Tape in Japan". So heavy, the cat can't walk.

Geo greeting

Type some text into the text field, and the satellite will find building roofs that matches the letters. Sooooooo awesome!!!

Laputa robot from Delta X

Delta X released a Laputa robot, but I can't find it on their company web page. Hmm... (This picture is from a news site.) 1102la.jpg

Broke the record...

Reaction test

How fast are your reactions? Wanna shoot some sheeps? (Haha! Don't worry, it's just a tranquilizer gun.)

Finger mouse

It's a finger-controled optical mouse. I wonder how well it works. But at least it looks like it will give some relief to your wrist. (More pictures at their site. It's Rakuten online shop.) Besides blue, it's also available in black. The warning says, do not wear it for prolonged period of time as it might cut off circulation. (^_^)

"Strange Clouds"

Stumbled across this site with pictures of weird clouds. They're amazing! Some look like UFOs. Some look like they were painted on. (Ah... sorry, this picture is borrowed from that site.)

Sigh... I guess you found out after I bought the set... Right?

Mega Chupa Chups follow-up

Haven't been to Candyland for almost 3 weeks. Kind of miss my Pocky. (^_^) Oh, last time when I was there, all the Mega Chupa Chups were gone. They were all sold out! So there is a market for $24 lollipops. Can't say the same for those Giant Pocky, though.

12 hours of sleep

Oh my God!!! Can't believe I slept for 12 hours!! It must be hibernation season!
...Oh... dear.... (panic)

I'm sorry, many people have probably posted this before. I'm just very late. But I like it so much, I have to post it. (^_^) The lyrics are quite meaningful too. Warning: almost naked men singing and dancing.

Manly Tofu

Otokomae Tofu, translates into "manly tofu". Hahaha... Crazy Japanese!! Looking at the site, you'll never imagine. It's a tofu company!! (Thanks my Japanese blog friend IS for the link.) According to IS, the tofu itself tastes quite good. The flavor is stronger than other brands, but it's also more expensive. I think the reason is their advertising. A campaign (and web site) like this must have cost a fortune.

Virtual Japanese calligraphy

Virtual Japanese calligraphy. The text on the buttons aren't showing. I think the first one is clear, the last one is colour, the second last one is brush size. The middle 2, no idea. (^_^)

Rotten Girl (3)

Here's a more explicit one. Viewer digression advised. This one shows some of the BL products like magazine, doujinshi, and drama CDs. The "fujoshi" market size is huge!! Looking at the availability of such shows on YouTube, seems like the "otaku" culture is getting mainstream. (And they've been fan-subbed!)

Rotten Girl (2)

There, there! She said it! "Rotten girl"! However, she seemed to refer to female otaku as "rotten girl". According to my understanding, the term means female BL fans.

The drag king cafe is crazy!

Human pixel

Pong and Sapce Invader. Great idea... (Sorry you might have seen this.)

Alien eggs?

(Click to enlarge the picture.) Haha... no, these are cherry tomatoes. Didn't make it in time so they're green. Most green ones have veins like this showing through the translucent skin, they look like they belong to the animal kingdom instead of plants. Kind of creepy...
