She decorated this photo frame at school. It used to have a foam-like material covering the frame, but she peeled them all. These sea animal stickers are from the aquarium they went the day before. According to the school, she behaved very well: sit still to watch the dolphins, didn’t make noise, etc. Amazing. Is she really her dad’s daughter?

She was outstanding, in a way, to me.

Had chance to get on a crowded commuter subway the other day. I saw a young woman in black suit, so called recruiting suit on the train. She looked like she was cramped in that outfit: her hair was very long and sort of wavy, rather grunge look, and her make up was, kind of gaudy. Obviously everything didn’t match. I wonder if she was going to work or going to interview judging from the suit. Did she think it would be OK as long as she was in the “recruiting suit” like everybody else looking for job? Or simply she didn’t know how to tone down her make up…? Or to take more matching suit…?

It was already late for me.

It happened around 10 p.m. last night.

SECOM security system alarm started going off. It wasn’t the sign of break ins, but machine error. I hit a button and the alarm stopped, then SECOM called, telling me some radio wave interrupted their system, and wanted to come in for check up.

A guy showed up in 5 min. He opened the main system box, check here and there, beep and peep, turned on and off breaker, check each electric appliance’s radiation, for about 2 hours. He determined it was the light ball closest to the main system box. So, we shouldn’t turn on that light. OK. I thought it was all resolved.

Then he said to me that he had to re condition the entire system, the each box allocated in each room, and small magnets attached to the all windows. Well, you can’t just abort, can you?

Another good 1 hour, he opened the box and beep and peep again, keys and tools rattling, sometimes right next to Tonchan who was asleep, which made me chewing my fingernails that he might wake her up.

Around 1:15, he finished re setting, and left. I was too tired to sleep by then, but better get some sleep. I woke up around 5:30 this morning. Another long day started.

チーズさつま揚げ



Went to Azabu Juban again in the afternoon for food hunting. She found this fried fish sausage with cheese, and inhaled it. I bought my sweetfish again and managed to leave the crowd to come back home.
