Check me out!

We were perusing the ECC website today and came across this lovely pic! This was taken recently at my school JR Sakai, where I have 3 kids classes, 2 FTL's and a Jr. High class...

Too Cute!

We were up at Osaka-Jo the other day and there are always loads of tourists up there, but this was the first time a group of girls swarmed us for a picture! I was in theirs, but I had to get a pic of Jeff with all the cute Korean girls!!!
note the cute expression on the girl second in on the right, also the girl to the right of Jeff was squeezing his arm so tight! haha, when they walked away the said "Oh YEAH!!!" so funny!

This was a nice moment in the park, a wooden flute player making beautiful music!

We're going to this!!!

Not really sure what it is but we got tickets for it! Looks like it
might be one of the cutest pet expos ever!!!

Bad but oh so cute habbit!

Jeff has become quite skillfull at winning me these cute Rilakkuma!

Whenever Jeff walks by these displays...

He feels the need to dork out for a minute or two... It's pretty funny!

Man, they think of everything here!

Here you can buy tiny shirts for your dogs and iron-on printer paper
so you can make them a cute Tshirt!


There was a small 2 person band stolling through the shppping arcade
with a kimono wearing women handing out something. The music was a
nice change from the usual J-pop we hear 24/7 :)

So we were really looking forward to the upcoming Zappa Plays Zappa
concert this Monday. Here is a pic of the tickets and the poster. This
would have been the 5th time we've seen them and on the 3rd
continent...that is if they wouldn't have cancelled the damn show. I
just had to take back the tickets to a very confused clerk at Lawsons.
I guess Ray White just up and quit with no notice. Nice. They are
still playing in Tokyo but there is no way to make it and they don't
have a full band. Bummer. Super bummed.
