Government Policy ?????

May 02 [Fri], 2008, 14:51

We needed to change our car about a year ago form HONDA オルティア (ORTHIA, maybe it can be called a station wagon) to FIT.
My husband had chosen ORTHIA for the purpose of putting his fishing gear. It seemed we had a kind of good timing for doing it. He is not going fishing as frequently as he used to be, so he chose more gas-efficient car or a small car which is economical on gas. New one runs 14q per liter. While former one ran only 7q.
Haha, "FIT" our small physical characteristics.

Our various kind of grocery price is expected to go up, hope not to soar up like oil price. We may find breads in bakeries made from rice flour not wheat flour, soon enough.

83 years old my father who is in the retirement home is now called 後期高齢者 (latter period senior citizen ?????)
How could government come up with this kind of sad expression?
Well, this phrase kind of made me think if it will be good to have longevity.

Cooked bamboo shoot ☆☆☆

I have made cooked bamboo shoot.
We were given these from two places and were plenty enough to let my brother taste them as well.
Somehow, both of my husband and brother like a bit of astringent taste of them.  So, I can’t use the rice bran much to remove that when I boil them, haha.

Today, I felt a bit hot when I was cooking it.
I regret that I took a shower in the morning, it was a sweating work.

Our song ☆☆☆

My husband is practicing the song which can be called our personal song. I also like this song and as I sing along with his saxophone, I learned the lyrics by heart,

Happy but worn out ☆

I started to write my diary in WORD as well

It was just a fancy idea that I came up with last midnight.
It turned out to be a hectic job to figure out what the staff of WORD was explaining to me☆☆☆  
This linking word with calendar seems to require the pretty advanced technique ♪♪♪
The second staff was more efficient than the first one, I think.
Well, mixed feeling with happiness and fatigue
Anyways, I will try keep up that diary,
so that I can take notes of personal things as well!!!!!!!!

It is finally getting spring and obviously I have weeding job cut out for me, hoo!!!!!!
Despite the warm weather, kind of makes me feel down!!!!!

Wireless ☆☆☆

I had my PC wireless yesterday

I think it got far convenient than before; hooked up with the phone line!!!!!!!!!!
I can't imagine why I couldn't come up with the idea earlier and bear the inconvenience

Anyways, I think I need to concentrate on doing "you know what!!!"
I have to make use of my free time better tomorrow.
I feel like I got distracted by many things.

Yesterday, one of my husband's acquaintances sent us his handmade buckwheat noodle through delivery service.

It was so delectable and flavorful
It was our second time that we could enjoy his 「手打ち蕎麦・teuchisoba」
I am not exaggerating if I say it tastes the best ☆☆☆
They are kind of fragile and I have to be careful not to stir so strongly when I boil them.

How marvelous it would be if my husband's hobby was making those handmade noodle rather than playing noisy saxophone
Well, there is no chance he will read this blog, haha (*^_^*)

I wonder if these noodle type Japanese foods are palatable to the western people.

Another funny story in US presidential election (*^_^*)

I think it is kind of opportunistic of the people in the city, however there is nothing wrong with their campaign and would be nice if it ended up boosting the city's popularity

It sure is fun to follow this sort of a national festival in America ☆☆☆

Fear-Monger (*^^)v

Today I was looking back my old other site's diary remembering I had written about the US presidential campaign.

Well, sort of giggled at my awkward expression in English at the time. It's been a while since then......
My husband still doesn't seem to have much interest and not my good companion to talk on this issue

I have to confess and feel really ashamed that I couldn't figure out what his dressing Somali elder (turban) implied immediately.
I am not the one who is taking side or don't want to get involved in the religious dispute. However, I think it had been really tactless of her staff, if the guilty party were so. Don't know as the reporter said that the site is sort of gossip seeking one.
Kind of a debasing act, but it is amazing to think ,under the circumstances (republic has less possibility ?), would there be a substantial change for good in the US's political situation, I hope.
The whole excitement and tension can be eyed an envious thing form Japanese. Our leader should be chosen by referendum!!!!!!

I just knew the word "monger" in the meaning of merchant, like fishmonger. But not the people who are fanatic to something as a suffix. For example, "fashion monger, scandalmonger".
Maybe, I can be a fashion monger (*^_^*)

Happy !!!! But a little troublesome (*^_^*)

I am SO glad that I finally bought a second DVD player which has only playback function in my tiny kitchen
Now I can watch the dramas which I recorded on DVD from cable-channel even while doing household chores ♪♪♪

And also found out or got to know from the call-center staff that I needed to finalize DVDs to watch them with other player
Wow, I got a large stock
Well, in due course I will have to do it

What is really bothersome for me is that the dramas broadcasted in bilingual system (left speaker in Japanese. right speker in English), I have to unpluge and pluge in every time I need to chage language
I should have investigated before or consulted the store clerk more, but considering the price I might have to bear the annoyance.
I will put up with this cheap one for the moment(*^^)v
What is more, my husband no longer has to hear me grunt about it, haha!

Lots of things to know to catch up with the recent gadget

Lovely song, 「初恋」

Recently, the background music of a certain CM on TV has been giving me a pretty reminiscent feeling of my good old young days
Not, ”Carpenters” for a change ♪♪♪

I was surprised to find that he has already died, though.

Well, while I was fiddling with you-tube, I found "未来予想図” by ドリカム.
