Minimalist Backseat

Today a convertible Jaguar was parked next to me and I just had to take a photo of the back seat in the car. The front seats were completely backed into the rear seats so that there is literally zero legroom. Not even a centimeter! If I recall correctly, one reason why these rear seats exist is so that the car is classified differently (2+2) for some kind of regulatory or insurance reason. But I hadn’t seen this in practice in a while. I think some modern sports cars have like the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ have the tiny back seats as well.

When I was growing up, my mom had a Toyota Supra and the back seats were so cramped that I remember it was better to site sideways, and if the entire back row was a chaise longue. Only it wasn’t comfortable at all. Still, it worked in a pinch and since our family is relatively small, it wasn’t an impossible situation.

Anyways, I was happy to see the back seat of the Jag today. It brought back so many memories, even the memory of my sore lower back as I sat sideways in the back of that old Supra!

Suzu Hirose 広瀬すず is so Popular

"Crocs Giveaway"
“Crocs Giveaway”

One of my favorite Japanese actress is Hirose Suzu 広瀬すず and she has gotten very popular these days, appearing in many acting roles. I mentioned that she is starring in the current asadora Natsuzora なつぞら, but the Chihayafuru series of movies are also popular and good, and I thought she was great in Anone あのね and Your Lie in April 四月は君の嘘.

Tonight she was on LINE Live, which is a livestream on the LINE platform. This “volume” was about her sponsorship for Crocs, and one of the fun things was that she was giving away was a pair of signed sandals. To enter, you just need to comment on the livestream, so of course I did post a “Hello from Texas!”. But I still haven’t heard back with the notification that I won… 😆

I hope you had a nice day!

またね~
