Happy birthday Yukiko! (mobile post)

we're having dinner at this really cool cafe to celebrate her
birthday. The cafe is designed like a house; a really homie feel. You
can even watch old episodes of full house in the living room...

winston and churchill tragically died after a few weeks due to a stupid pet shop salesman and our inexperience with pet fish.

old red flower green dress lady (mobile post)

thank you for the company on the way home tonight. my left side was
feeling a bit cold, but then, as if in direct response to my
sensitivity to cold, you boarded the train at okazaki station... I'm
almost too warm now.

Sleepy businessman (mobile post)

I've been riding the trains in aichi regularly, but this is the first
time a businessman has fallen asleep on me. First time for everything
I guess. I'm going to wake him up by whispering sweet nothings into his ear.
