It seems that it's all the rage to try the relatively new "Ice Cucumber" soda from Pepsi... So when Ami and V came home with some I happily jumped on the bandwagon! Yeah, ice cucumber..... Well, it's better sounding than oden in a can, right? I can't speak for the taste of oden in a can, but ice cucumber pepsi is actually fairly good. It's light and sweet and airy.... a little bit like me?? Well in any case, I liked the little bit of it that I had, though I don't think that I'd ever buy it to have a whole bottle. More than a little might be too much (plus I've kind of lost my taste for soda with the heat..).

Ahhh it feels like the weekends pass too quickly. The week drags on and on because I'm so busy, but I hope that that starts to clear up a little bit. My manga bug is biting me HARD, and I plan to get some good work done before falling asleep tonight. ^^ Yosha!! ^o^ What did I do this weekend? I went to Hikaru's concert on Friday night with Kat and Adrian, and then V treated Ami and me to karaoke, so we sang and sang and sang.. It's been so long!! :O Then we went to a tiny new mexican restaurant with Eda and Erin in Nishi-Ogikubo.. It was alright, though it was really the friends together that made the night really great. I hope that you're feeling better now, Eda. ^__^

We decided to name the kitten Ness, which is suposedly Hebrew for "miracle". It's a really cute name, and makes me think of that old movie Nell for some reason.. and then the Loch Ness Monster. I might call her Nessie sometimes as a nickname. She's really getting a lot better, and filling out-- her stomach is really huge now, it's almost like she's a different kitten!! Still a little bit sick but other than problems in her right eye, you can't really tell. ^^ *hugs Ness*

Ness is biting my finger..

Isn't she cute???? It's thanks to everyone's help that she's well and alive. ^^

Pupu or Krone ice cream? Which is better?

This ice candy is the BEST thing to buy when it's hot out (like now!!). Wonderful heat has finally arrived in Tokyo, yay!!

Would you like some minion steaks? We had a great laugh over that one. =D

And I got a kick out of the way that the lyrics for Offspring's song in the karaoke parlor come up on the screen... Which Nana is it addressed to, Oosaki or Komatsu? (I think Komatsu comes to mind. =D)

I saw these in Nakano today, and they are sooooo cute!! They're really good quality too!! I really want them, but I'm hoping to find them for sale cheaper in Akihabara or Ikebukuro something. ^^

with a name like 'pupu' it won't sell to well in some western country :D lol *it looks good though*
your kitty is adorable! (and I'm not even a cat person)

It's the perfect thing to have with Calpis, of course!

Funny thing, in Japan you can get Calpis, the yogurt drink (water or soda version) pre-made, called カルピス, Calpis, OR, you can buy the concentrate in bottles to take home and mix your own (with either regular water or soda water) and the mix is called カルピコ, Calpico. Anyway, that's how it always was.

But in the US, you can get the stuff, but both versions (premade and home mix) are just "Calpico" so people call it "Calpico Soda". Apparently the "-pis" ending wasn't so good for marketing.

"Pocari Sweat" in the US turned into just "Pocari" too.

But yeah "I'll have a Pupu and Calpis plz" :D

OMG she is so so so cute!
Ah, she must have been in a really bad shape at the beginning considering that even now that eye is like that (my first cat too had eyes really in bad shape due to her sickness) but with time she will be better for sure!
I'll tell you personally the rest when I'll come to visit you and see her XDD But did the vet give you something for that eye?
Because I remember the vet giving me a medicine for that too (since it was all connected, eyes, nose etc etc)

Wow O_o one of those candies has the calorie of 1/3 of my meal...sugoi...

I hope we get to see more photos of her in the future as well and that she stays well now! :)

Sweet little cat guy :)

I'm not a big fan of Pepsi, or pop generally for that matter, but the coffeehouse I go to puts cucumber slices in one of the free ice water pitchers. At first I was thinking "wtf?" but it's actually pretty good, a sort of refreshing feel.

I gotta see if my local Amko market gets Pupu now though :)

Sheesh! I only asked you about the drink 4 days ago! :P

So... Not like Satan in your mouth, then?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2007 12:23 am (UTC)
=D Lots of my friends were posting about it, so I had to try it when my roomies came back with some. =D I rather liked it though! ^^

I just tried some of the cucumber pepsi a few days ago, too! It wasn't bad, but I couldn't finish the whole bottle. Ness is such a cute name ^^ And I think the Air Gear toys came out a few months ago. I bought the last one at my Animate maybe around when the Bleach character fortunes came out? I got Ringo ^^ I want an Akito, too, though. How much were they in Nakano?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
They were pretty expensive.. I think that it was around 2600 for the whole set, and I couldn't find any individuals. I did go looking in Akihabara last week, but I could only find the rare one (always Simca) and they were always pretty pricey too. Darn. I've been looking on yahoojapan but the prices are around the same too. ;_;

Good to hear your kitten is doing better. It's always tough to figure out how to deal with sick pets.

Thanks for the report on the Ice Cucumber Pepsi. I read an article about it the other day (yes, it made the news here in the US) and was figuring I might have to beg you to try some out. Luckily you did it on your own, so now I owe no favors. Whew!

Ness is so cute and so are you! I really miss you! I'm so grateful you have live journal. Back to Ness, it looks like she has really big ears. She must be really little and will grow into them. Are her paws bigger too? Hopefully she won't have any lasting vision effects after her eye gets better. Bike riding is great, I just don't like the sore butt after a long ride. Love you! Mom
Christinatotenkopf on June 20th, 2007 02:44 am (UTC)
Aww, she is such a cutie ^_^ Ness fits her well, I also like Nessie. :D Glad to hear she is doing well. ♥

I had read an article about the Ice Cucumber on Comcast.net. I've never heard of a soda named Ice Cucumber before. :P Too bad its not here in the States, or other wise, i'd definately be trying it too! :)

Ohayou Hi-chan! My English isn't very good, but I'll do my best that you could understand me - hopefully if I read your entries I'll get better ^__^ (learning by doing *laugh*) I think that Ness is a very cute name for your kitten. One week ago our kitten cames home. Her name is miya and now she is 7 weeks old (pic -> http://www.bilder-hosting.de/show/SSC8W.html).
I like your blog and would like to read your coming entries. greetings saya
Raynermundist on June 22nd, 2007 06:51 am (UTC)

Who loves ya? Enjoy.

Oh, and the answer to that question is me if you're confused. Heh.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 22nd, 2007 12:00 pm (UTC)
Ahhhh, I looooove you!!! <3<3<3 Ami just heard me squeal from the other room. =^_______^= I'm so excited, you just made me really happy!!
Raynermundist on June 22nd, 2007 02:24 pm (UTC)
Isn't that my purpose in life? I mean, when I'm not driving you nuts? =D
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2007 12:16 am (UTC)
Maaaaaybe, but who can really know what anyone's purpose is? ^.~
