Having graduated with a degree in Japanese, I'm currently living the dream by working in a field that has nothing to do with Japan. :D

I talk about my life, which consists a lot of work ranting and gushing over my kitty cat, Bowser the Ferocious Purrball of Snuggles, or just Bowz for short.

  • I will listen to anything Nakata Yasutaka breathes on.
  • I listen to all sorts of music, aside from gospel, religious, reggae, and country. It is a proven fact that country music has caused my appetite to disappear.
  • I really like gravure idols and the industry, but the idols from an aesthetic perspective (not a lewd one), and the industry from an analytical one.
  • I love the Walt Disney Company (but I abhor the Disney Channel); I've been to the Florida parks a handful of times and my utmost favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid. I think it was my first.
  • I looooove things from the 1950s and 1960s, especially when they have flowers on them (think tableclothes, curtains, etc). Advertising from these eras also strike my fancy.
  • I like penguins and collect stuffed ones. It is one of my life goals to keep one as a pet, or at the very least pet one. (Also on this list is to befriend a squirrel and feed a duck out of the palm of my hand, the latter of which I have done.).
  • Unless stated otherwise, the layout and all of my icons were made by me - do not take them!

  • Now that I have a new account with my original online handle, I am no longer updating 58468_0. Thanks to miyabee for the permanent account!!!
