New year's resolution 2010

Hi there! It's been a while, but I have not quit blogging. My new year's resolution is to try not to get information I don't really need. Do I have to know gossips among comedians on TV?

"You should always keep thinking something positive so that you could make a wish upon a shooting star whenever it falls."
This is from one of my favorite comics called “Toripan.”

IWGP 池袋ウエストゲートパーク

I think I fall in love with Makoto in IWGP. I have read every single one in this series, including the latest one. Something happening in Ikebukuro is happening everywhere in Japan, like the issue about curtailing temp workers. The first one of the series started about 10 years ago, since then Makoto has been sprinting across Ikebukuro as a trouble-shooter to solve the problems on the street. I feel that social environment in Japan has become worse and worse in these 10 years.

The cover in the picture is the second latest one and big apple cake.

French Open '09

What had I done? No, what had Not I done? I missed Federer’s win in French Open yesterday. Actually I watched his match until the third set over and went to bed at 2 am. Federer was 2 sets behind at that time, so I sadly thought he was not going to win because the opponent was playing great. What happened after that? Anyway, I am a big fan of him and I really hope that he seizes the grand slam title this time. I believe all tennis fan wish him luck. Go, Federer!!

I love Ichiro!

I don’t watch baseball games, but I like Ichiro. I always pay attention what he says; I call it “ご神託”. I hear that he often tells kids playing baseball to take good care of their bats and gloves when he is asked how to be a good baseball player. I think he is trying to tell them how important to prepare for a good performance. In an interview, he was asked if he saw an ideal figure at the end of his baseball journey. He answered “…yes, but I have just an obscure imagery… I am always in complete darkness. Even so, if I keep going, I could find a small ray of hope into the far distance. I believe. ”


最後のセンテンスの中で、日本語で言う「それでも」と言いたかったのだけど、最初に書いたのは"yet"。その後に"still"が浮かんで、ちょっと調べて"even so"に変えてみた。んんー、どれが良かったかな。

The other day, a TV newscaster told that Nike was going to cut down 1400 people. The newscaster continued, “Nike says, when it comes to layoff, there might be no choice, but JUST DO IT.” Did I hear that right?

閑話休題 ~真央ちゃんのこと~

I am one of those people who were moved by Mao Asada at the figure skating competition last Sunday. She was really great at her performance; also she was a fighter and a real athlete. Right after finishing her performance, she was so cute. It made me cry! I don't know why! Though she is far younger than me, she inspired me to do something I must do right now, not figure skating. It’s December. I will end this year with smile.

Trip to America ~準備編②~

I’m leaving for America in a few days. Last Wednesday, I happened to find a book called 「楽園 上」 宮部みゆき in the library. I really love reading a good mystery novel. I have read her several works and all of them were interesting for me. Her novels are so popular that you can hardly borrow them in the library without reservation. I had the luck to borrow it by chance. Afterward, I started reading it and finished it just today. Before finishing reading it, I reserved 「楽園 下」 through the net. I thought if I got it before leaving Japan, I could enjoy reading it in the plane. It would help me with killing time during the flight. Now I have got one problem that I was able to get it just today. If I started reading it right now, I will definitely finish reading it in two days or so. It means I will get bored in the plane. To start to read, or not to start, that is the question.
