Hello! Here are some mints! I know, this should be a Cutest Characters update and it’s coming! Honest! But in the meantime, here is something else that’s cute, a teeny mini Frisk phone strap! Do you know what the shop assistant said when I got this in 7/11? She said “Kawaii!!” Of course she did! ‘Cause it is! It’s so small. I sure do love tiny miniature versions of things :)

What a lovely birthday weekend I’ve had! And in celebration: some rather low quality photos from my ipod, hooray! I have some better photos but they’re on my camera, and it’s late (00.30) and I’m sleepy. People keep pointing out that I am always sleepy. I don’t think I am! Maybe I just say it all the time. Or maybe I don’t get enough sleep. I’m not sure.
Perhaps you can tell: I got a lot of cute stuff. A lot of Pokemon stuff and a lot of Kitty stuff. Hooray!! I also had a lovely party which involved cool people, Singstar, Rock Band, beer, pink sparkling wine and cake. Yummy!

I have a post on Summer Sonic all written up and ready to go BUT without photos it’s no good and all the photos are on Danny’s computer/on my phone. Heat induced laziness has prevented me from copying them onto my computer! Yeah…heat induced laziness…that’s my excuse! It’s a pretty good one though, kind of. Japan is apparently getting record high temperatures and it’s not gonna calm down til the end of September! Oh help.
Anyway, so here are some photos from Osaka earlier last month:

Aaand here are some more photos. The Gundam Cafe really was cool. I am not a huge fan of Gundam, not ’cause I think I’d hate it or anything, I’ve just never watched it. As a cafe/bar concept it’s a pretty good idea! Apart from the bathrooms! OK, they are cool really, and look like the rest of the place, all slick and metallic BUT, above the hand drier there’s a big red shiny button that says “Stop. Emergency” on it. “Oh hey, how fun!”, thought silly Joanna and pressed it. Don’t press it! Especially if you, like me, are afraid of the dark!! The lights start going on and off and a fake alarm sounds. I jumped, went AAAHHH! and unlocked the door… Thankfully there was nobody outside so nobody noticed…
Otherwise…Akiba was hotter than HOT, it was 36 degrees hot. Ouch. We all went to a maid cafe which was totally awesome. Me and Danny had been to ‘Cure Maid’ the day before, it’s a Victorian style maid cafe, very cute, very traditional and very polite. It was lovely but the @homecafe is something else entirely! We picked the sixth floor and as it happens this was a floor with English speaking maids! So cute!!! In fact, I think I’ll photograph the polaroid I had taken and write a proper post about it later. That’s all for now, I need to go and space out a bit before swimming.

Time for more sweets!
There was recently a range of Neon Genesis Evangelion products at Lawson. The Evangelion characters are used to sell EVERYTHING. Especially pachinko!? This time round you could buy Evangelion coffee, crisps, ramen and antibacterial wipes! There was also a leaflet featuring Asuka standing outside Lawson..I picked up a few, I’ll take a photo later! Now it’s Kitty’s turn however. We popped in today but there were no phone straps featuring Kitty in a Lawson uniform! Disappointed! 7/11 had straps with her in one of their uniforms, why Lawson, why?? They didn’t even have the apple cake I’d gone in to buy *sob!*
Other than that, this weekend I have mostly been shopping. I’ll post some photos of the awesome things I’ve bought later!

So me and Danny are going to make some stop motion stuff because it’s fun and cute! Here is a little experiment:
Bagpuss looking all confused!

It’s crazy how the tiniest cute thing will cheer me up. No wonder kids over here routinely say things like “I like Rilakuma because he heals me”. It may sound a little dramatic but that’s sort of what cute things do. Maybe they’re just a distraction made up by giant corporations like Sanrio to make people buy more stuff but..I’d rather not see them that way. I’d rather see them as things that spread joy even in unlikely places (like…on all packaging, on road safety signs etc.). So on that note here are some cute things:
Yes..I put Bagpuss in my handbag and carried him to a park and put him in a tree. Danny convinced me it would be a good idea..and it was!
