Mmm, so we went to Osaka today, ostensibly to buy cameras and omiyage for Addie's brother. Okay.

My laundry didn't dry correctly and I oversletp. Okay.

As expected the cameras were all in the $300-$500 range. Okay.

So I saw I Prince of Tennis Alarm clock. One of the talking ones. And I well...bought it. (It's the one with Ryoma's, Tezuka's, Fuji's, Kikumaru's, and Atobe's voices. It suddenly occured to me that a alarm clock with Jirou's voice might just be the best thing ever, should they ever decide to make one.) -___________-;;

And then I ran into the Festival bromides. Ummm.. Yeah. Iendedupbuying3. In my defense, the store was selling them at 11% off! It's one of those kinds of department stores. >>;;

We ended up having gigantic pieces of cake for lunch. It ended up to be a bit more expensive than a normal lunch, but it was very good cake. Mine had a lot of strawberries in it. X3

I opened the bromides at lunch. The first one turned out to be the Mizuki in a maid's dress. I laughed. And um...didn't show it to anyone else. The other two turned out to be Sengoku as Indy and Kamio and Shinji as ninjas, so I had pretty good bromide luck.

I had pretty bad random nuigurumi keychain luck, though. Out of all the possiblities, I got Gema! And the ribbon was broken, so he fell off of the keychain. *wanted Puchi Charat* >>

Next was Mandarake, where I spent a lot of money. The end.

Moral of the story: 70500 yen worth of doujinshi plus a copy of dream carnival is rather heavy. )

ETA: (on the subject of cosplayers) "Did you see that girl?" "What girl?" "The one that was practically naked." "No, did you see the guy dressed as one of the girls from Pretty Cure?" "No." "Be thankful, he had a five o'clock shadow."

(Mandarake staff Rolecall: Seishomaru, Ohtori, random Hagane military personal, and I think Lilim from Lilim Kiss. In retrospect, they might have been talking Lilim earlier.)

I've decided that I need an I am a consumer whore tag. I probably need an icon as well.

In explanation, I present the following anecdote: my high school Japanese teacher used to give participation points for voluntarily speaking to her in Japanese outside of the classroom. The result was a series of conversations that I still mentally refer to as "Micchan no Kaimono Nikki."

That said, I finally broke down and bought an ipod. (It's a blue ipod mini, hereby named "Raiel.") Blame the nano.

I've been spending a lot of time in the company of my mother these past few days. We've been shopping. A lot.

We've also watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" - twice. Once in the regular fashion and a second time with one of the commentary tracks. (The Terry track)

Tonight, we watched "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Twice. We weren't expecting to, but the commentary was surprisingly decent.

I also saw a movie in theater two days in a row (Saturday and Sunday) but surprisingly, I was not accompanied by mother on either occasion.
