When shopping at Oto's
today,the one cashier who rang up my first ever purchase there informed me that the one cashier that had rung me out a dozen times wasn't there anymore and is working at some local department store(which I won't identify,since I don't shop department stores).I kinda figured she wasn't there anymore(since she's rung me out at least one of the other times I've shopped there on a Wednesday);but while I know the one in question is still around(and has not gone overseas),I don't intend to go to a department store just to go see someone.Besides,as long as I'm living with my folks,I have no intent on risking having my pride compromised
because a certain elder in the household fantasizes about having a Japanese daughter-in-law which surely will never materialize
.Anyway,I managed to find a mini-maneki neko
at a Japanese gift-shop next door to a long-established Japanese bakery
.Maybe one of these days when I do
live alone,I'll get a normal-size one...
I don't know why,but I found it hard to concentrate while doing my taxes online
.Though it wasn't the case,I was fearing I did them wrong...
Happy 39th birthday to Rio Natsuki...
