We are not going anywhere this summer like most of our friends!! Well we may go on a mini-vacay to Kyoto and Osaka, but we'll see. What's been going on around here - I'm still eating those black sesame seed puddings (yum!), we still have no television (that doesn't stop us from watching tv though), Martine's turtle, Gertrude is staying with us for the summer and our piggies are cuter than ever.
Edited to include this cute picture of Loretta lying over a cooling pack thing - we place it in their habitat to keep them cool. Sugar is lying close to it too!! Our piggies are so smart!
I also finally managed to pull out the sewing machine that I bought off Yahoo Auctions (which is Japan's equivalent of Ebay) for 1000 yen. It's kind of rubbish or maybe I just didn't set it up right. I dunno. But I did manage to complete a project from Generation T that I've been meaning to do for ages.
It was pretty easy to complete. My sewing sucked, but I blame it on the machine :)
It was late at night so I didn't bother to take fashion shots - might try to do that soon. It turned out ok - kinda cute.
Someone who knows how to sew WAY better than me is Stephanie from anti-factory. I received my new AntiFactory top on Sunday and have already worn it to work twice (actually I'm wearing it right now!!). It's so cute and it makes me feel happy at work. In a related story, the other week I got to meet Stephanie's family when they were in town. It's a totally small world because Steph's mum had contacted me via my blog, unawares that I owned more than one Anti-Factory item. Anyway both Daz and I had SUCH a fun time (a lunch turned into seven hours of shopping, chatting, cafe-going and more chatting and more shopping)....shame we forgot our camera. This is why blogs rule - you get to meet the most interesting people.
So to finish up this rambling post, I have to confess my undying love for....ENTOURAGE. I can't believe we haven't watched it up until now, but the good thing about that is that we had 29 episodes to watch in the last couple of weeks. We watched the first two episodes a couple of weeks ago (EDITED to ADD: at the urging of BBE1 and BBE2 - in case you didn't know BBE stands for Best Brother Ever, unfortunately my equivalent is BSE = mad cow??) and it did nothing for me, but then we got hooked. It's funny, witty, clever and officially my favourite show at the moment. I love ALL of the characters - esp. Kevin Dillon as Johnny 'Drama' Chase. I knew I loved Mark Wahlberg for some reason other than his hot body (click you won't regret it). Something I wish I had never watched was CNTM - that is officially the WORST ntational series of top model. I cannot believe they chose that 'completely under-nourished, hiding bags and bags of lollies in my suitcase' teen.
