"Peach Girl" manga/drama/anime is full of lies and back-stabbing drama. I find it fun, and some of the characters likable. Heck, even Sae (Sha Hui in the Taiwanese drama) is a fun villain I can appreciate.
"Lost in Translation" is a nice relaxing movie about finding something to do in Tokyo. Two married people (not to each other) let down their guard and hang out.
Summer used to mean 3 months away from school, family vacations, and fun things like Disneyland. Now that there isn't a big long vacation involved, I don't see much point. It gets too hot, and I don't feel like doing much. At least work days involve air conditioning for me, which they glady pay for. Sure, I have it at home, but not in my room. If I were well off, I'd consider going south for their winter during our summer and just avoid the season completely.
Uncle Eddie's vegan cookies are yummy. Mmmm.
