A Bee-yoo-tiful Flower for You

Yesterday I was doing a little pre-US-visit gift-shopping in Kobe when I happened upon a lovely rosegarden. (In case anyone wants to go there it's on the raised walkway that connects all the buildings in Sannomiya, right behind the OPA building.) It smelled heavenly and they had 3 or 4 different kinds of roses as well as other small plants and flowers. It's a great place to relax in the sunshine and enjoy a book or just chat with someone. Check it out if you get the chance!

(The only drawback is that there aren't any no-smoking signs {when was the last time you saw a salaryman pay attention to a no-smoking sign anyway}, so sometimes the fragrance of the roses is marred by smoke. )


You've been hit by.... A Stealth Grapefruit

A: I feel like someone's watching me...

B: Don't be paranoid.

A: No really, I'm getting this creepy feeling.

SG : Splat! Sploosh! Splortch!

Also thanks to everyone who called or e-mailed, it really made my day to hear from all of you! (This frog was a gift from the boys in #101. Thanks guys!)

Hakuho Triumphant

As I predicted, Hakuho took home his first Emperor's Cup yesterday making him, at 21 the 4th youngest wrestler ever to do so. (Asashouryuu was one of the other 3, if you were wondering.)

The other prizes went to:

Shukun-sho or Outstanding Performance Award - Miyabiyama
Kanto-sho or Fighting Spirit Prize - Asasekiryuu and Balto
Gino-sho or Technique Prize - Miyabiyama

I can' wait 'til the July tournament!

Goog Morninger!

P.S. Happy Birthday to Me!
