Japanese idea


I am dying to go back to Japan for the crafting aspect alone.

I want to order this book, however, trying to navigate the Japanese sites (even with translation) is difficult.

But aren't these felted items great??? I haven't been felting as much as I want, but these seem small handy little projects to tackle.




And while I am on a Japanese thing, when I was a teen, one of my favorite songs was TURNING JAPANESE by The Vapors. I thought it was so romantic-- like this guy is so into her that he wants an X-ray... at 13, this was romance (as well as getting hit by a double decker bus in There is a Light and it Never Goes Out)

Flash forward to five years later going out and my BF at the time and I hear this song. I'm all baby isn't this song soooo romantic (coo coo) and BF says, it's about wanking (British guy) It's about WHAT??? Yeah luv, listen to the beat... it's even the speed of it. I've got your picture?? Ofcourse that's what it's about, pet. I spent the rest of the evening pouting... and ofcourse he was all why? I just spoke the truth.

So for the rest of my life after that the song was ruined. And I noticed females would go with romantic and guys always said masturbating when I asked. I became so jaded.

Last year I watched some show on VH1 and The Vapors said it was a love song and it wasn't about masturbation. So I say to J, LOOK IT'S REALLY IS A LOVE SONG. And he said, Ofcourse that's what they will say to VH1 now, but trust me, it's about jerking off. This is from the guy who is supposed to be planning a Valentine's surprise evening for me. Mr. Romance himself.


Turning Japanese by The Vapors
I got your picture of me and you
You wrote "I love you" I wrote "me too"
I sit here staring and there's nothing else to do
Oh it's in color
Your hair is brown
Your eyes are hazel
And soft as clouds
I have to kiss you when there's no one else around

I got your picture, I got your picture
I'd like a million of you over myself
I want a doctor to take a picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You've got me turning up and turning down
and turning in and turning 'round

I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so

I got your picture, I got your picture
I'd like a million of you over myself
I want a doctor to take a picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You've got me turning up and turning down
and turning in and turning 'round

I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so

No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a Psyclone Ranger
Everyone

That's why I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so...

Thank you so much for "dropping" in - I'm really happy about it! Due to the moving or something more mysterious I lost the access to my yahoo-account in December and that means to all our mails too:-((
I hope it'll be fixed on the weekend but anyway I'll write a detailed email then.

Take care Sibille
