Location: Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan

I'm a university student and belong to karate circle in the university. I like sports very much. In my junior high school and high school days, I belonged to volleyball club, and track and field club. I enjoyed both of them, and now I like watching these sports on TV. I also like animals and have a dog and 7 Japanese killifish. I want to have a cat, too. However, my father don't like cats, and my dog, Rug, will chase the cat. So I will not be able to have any cat...

Today, I ate out with Yuka, Kaori, and Eri.
We went to Fugetsu. Eri ordered a okonomiyaki with pork and squid, and I ordered a okonomiyaki with pork and kimuchi. Yuka and Kaori ordered two hiroshimayakis.
Okonomiyakis and hiroshimayakis are baked in front of us. The staff turned them very well, though I have never did it well.
While we were wating until they were baked, I found a difference. It is how to bake a okonomiyaki. In Fugetsu, they put dried bonito (kastuobushi) on a okonomiyaki while it is baked. But, my mother put dried bonito after a okonomiyaki have been baked. So I was a little bit shocked. I prefer my mother's way to Fugetsu's. However, the okonomiyaki was delicious, so the difference was no problem!

Howl's Moving Castle

I hadn’t watched “Howl’s Moving Castle” yet, so I watched it yesterday. I found it, when I went to TSUTAYA to get films I’ll use for Scott’s assignment.
It was very good and is one of the best films of Gibri for me.
I like Howl very much! (especially with blond!) When he appears for the first time in the movie, he acts cool. But, when the color of his hair is changing, he is really upset. Those differences are interesting. He is like a child when he is with Sophie.
I like Calcifer in second to Howl. He is funny. He doesn’t listen to anyone except Howl at first, but follows Sophie when she scares him. And I think that one of the reason he looks funny is that he can’t move freely by himself, though he has great power. I like the scene that he eats egg shells and the scene that he hangs on a charcoal tooth and nail. But, the fact that he is Howl’s hart was shocking to me…
Before I return the movie, I want to watch it again!

Recently, I’m absorbed in mixi. Maybe it was about 2 weeks before that I joined mixi. I was invited by one of my circle’s members. Nobody can get mixi without someone’s invitation.
It is a social networking site (service?) that has community, my mixi, okiniiri (favorite), diary, ashiato (footprint), and review. Community is groups that people who have the same interest come and talk with other people. In my mixi, you can keep your friend’s mixi. I don’t know what I can do with okiniiri because I haven’t used it. Diary is your diary, and you can put pictres. On ashiato, you can see who have visited your mixi and can go to their mixi. If you have favorite books or movies, you can write the review of them. Once you join a community or get your friend’s mixi, you get notification of new comment or diary of the community or mixi. It has searching ability, so you may be able to find your friends. I found one of best friends in high school. Try it!!
