こんばんは。How’s it going?

Next week I am going to see the movie Love Live! Sunshine!! The School Idol Movie: Over the Rainbow so I need to catch up with the tv series. I don’t know if I will be able to binge watch all of the episodes, but I’ll at least be able to get familiar with the characters so I am not totally lost at the movie!

And while I watch, I might as well enjoy a glass of saké, right? Ah, the good life! 😆🍶

Mulan – Live Action Movie

I am so excited to see this!

I started watching the 2013 Chinese drama Legend of Hua Mulan 花木兰传奇 in anticipation of the Disney live-action movie, and I am enjoying it so far. There are 48 episodes, so it’s a long-haul of a historical drama, but it’s fun and the costumes are really cool. I don’t think they are historically too accurate (the make-up is very modern) but I think they look great. And I am getting a lot of ideas for sketches too, so that’s a big bonus!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Our family’s mosquito defenses consist of an ultraviolet fan-trap, an annual yard spray, mini-fumigation spray, and old-school mosquito coil incense. For the incense, we have this cool ceramic pig. 🐷 I love the smell of the incense! It smells like a Japanese summer. 😄🎐

When I am working in the garage, I’ll bring the pig with me and let it clear the area of mosquitos. I think it does a great job in there, and I haven’t been bitten in the garage when I use the pig. However, on the backyard deck, I still get bitten. I guess it has to do with the more open area. Oh well, our mosquito bite remedy, Zap-it!, took care of the itchiness.
