Hidemi’s Rambling No.82

I got a broiled porgy at 75% off at the supermarket. A porgy is a symbol of good luck in Japan, and they eat it to celebrate something. The reason is simple. ‘Porgy’ is said ‘Tai’ in Japanese, and ‘Medetai’ means auspicious. So, it really is a pun. New Year’s is an ideal occasion to eat a porgy. I felt extra lucky to get it only at $4, but soon came to myself. A porgy’s price dropped because the holiday season is over. Why am I feeling down eating an auspicious fish?…

Hidemi’s Rambling No.83

Today I stowed away my Christmas tree and the decorations, and my melancholy reached the peak. At least I still have the New Year’s decorations because New Year’s celebrations continue through the 15th of January on a local custom of my hometown, while people here around me end the celebrations much sooner. To cheer me up, I began the countdown to the next Christmas. 353 days to go…

Hidemi’s Rambling No.84

I watched a DVD of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ yesterday and I was amazed. There was a scene that Larry, who wasn’t in the car, tried to order on the drive-thru line of a fast food restaurant, which was closed for the day except for the drive-thru. That is exactly what I have tried to do for several times and managed to stop doing because my partner begged me intensely not to do it each time. Somebody thinks just like me about the drive-thru and I am not the only one! In ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, Larry often does what I have done in the past or feels how I feel about a certain thing. There are a lot of cool characters on TV shows but why him?…

Hidemi’s Rambling No.85

I awoke exhausted. I felt all energy was drained out. My strain of the holiday season had snapped and I thought that was the reason. Finally I found a website where I could watch US TV shows in Japan for free and I watched ‘The O.C. Season 2′ online last night. As they have an expiration date for viewing, I watched three episodes at a stretch before going to sleep. Another possible reason for exhaustion is the intense hearing of English for many hours. My physical strength is not enough even for TV…

Hidemi’s Rambling No.86

The expiration date for free online viewing of ‘The O.C. Season 2′ is approaching and that led me to an OC marathon. I watched three episodes today too. Watching ‘The O.C.’ evokes my memories because I used to live in OC. My apartment was in Anaheim and I would often go to the mall in Newport Beach. A big difference between my life and the show is that I didn’t get there by one of those gorgeous cars. I always took the free shuttle van of the mall. The van was a completely ragged, worn-out vehicle which seemed to be a miracle to run so fast on Interstate 5. The windows, interior, the floor and the door all clattered and looked on the verge of falling apart. In a way, it was totally a thrill ride. But I should thank that van for what I owe. My new song for which I have been working now was born in that shabby van…
