It's Crunch Time


One more week until Christmas Day. I feel like Miss A when our photo shoot went a bit too long.

I'll be taking my usual holiday break so that I can focus on being HoHoHo-ish. Take care, you guys. Big hug and kiss to you. See you in 2017.


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy Holidays to you!
Dang, I still keep checking this site several times a day. Addiction!

Oh, BTW, is Gerri planning on making her ozoni for New Years? My offer still stands to bring the mizuna and mochi! Hahaha I tried making it last year. Sooooo humbug! I rather try Gerri's!

My GF's foot is almost back to good. It's still a little swollen but she doesn't need a cane or wrapping anymore.

jalna said...

So funny, V. I'll post something on for you. I'll ask Geri if she gonna make the ozoni, and you can come try! Or if you rather, I can save some shiru for you, and you can pick up. I'll let you know. I always think about your GF's foot. Well, actually I always think about how you took care of your GF when she broke her foot.

Hahaha, thanks for the offer of Geri's ozoni, I was joking! In fact, I think I have some frozen from when I tried to make it. I saw it in the freezer last week so that's what reminded me!

See, Addiction. I automatically check right after I read the online newspaper and whenever I go to my browser because your site is on my shortcut! Beautiful picture!

I just read on RocketNews24 that Narita airport has over 170 Gapcom capsule machines in their basement. Dang, I love those and always am looking for them wherever. They have these miniature toys in them and some are really cool. Since we went to the airport 5 HOURS early because of the foot thing, had I known about these.....

Aww, pua ting.

Did I tell you that I made Wendell's fruitcake? I have such a bad memory. It was a little dry, but mom loved it. I'm doing the liquor thing and keeping my fingers crossed.

jalna said...

V, I love those toy machines too! Dunno what Gapcom means, but I'll go look it up right after this. Me too, I wish we knew about them in the basement of the airport. And let me know if you change your mind about the ozoni.

For real yah, Erick.

Kay, Wendell's fruitcake does come out a little dry too, but I still like it . . . . it's the nuts and fruits that I like. And the taste is good. Didn't it smell divine while baking?!

sorry, for some reason I always call them Gapcom but I think the real word is gachapon. Dang, I want to go to Narita just to look for this!
