matcha kitkat

Turning what was a "special outing" to a monthly to semi-monthly routine...

Though the latest Nakayoshi wasn't yet in stock,Oto's video shop did have the latest Hana to Yume.The first story was a continuation of Mizuho Kusanagi's NG Life.However, there appeared to be possibly up to 2 new serializations(Julietta Suzuki's Katakoi Akuma-chan and Seiko Nakamura's Yuujou Survival!)since there were no chapter numbers on the initial pages for those sections.Speaking of Nakayoshi,I gotta join nakayosi since it's a dedicated community.On to the food shop,though I forgot to grab an entry form,Calpico a.k.a. Calpis USA is having a contest for the elusive Wii.Since it runs at least for couple more months,I'll be sure to grab an entry form next time.Swapping letters around,one odd item I found was a confection from Glico mimicking a loaded ice cream cone(though not frozen obviously),called Caplico...

Stopping for lunch on the way home,I went to a Safeway for a cup a fresh hot baked potato soup and a drink.At checkout,I told the deli clerk that(for marketing purposes)another family member(my dad)had a Safeway Club card,but they ended up issuing me a new card anyway.It probably won't be totally useless though...

Since it's already tomorrow(the 29th)in Japan,happy birthday to Mitsune Konno Maho Izawa Junko Noda(who turns 36)and Akiko Kawase(who turns 27)...
