SP 12 Question #2

As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?
Sleeping in ^_^ then getting to enjoy the sun.

SO I went a little crazy over the weekend and did these. My Nephew wanted shrimp. I wasn't sure if he wanted it to look dead or alive but since he asked me after having shrimps at lunch I assumed he's taking about those.

My co-worker got these for myself and the other staffs at work. I got the Sleeping Sickness (purple one)^_^, one got Rabies (red), one is Malaria (green), and last one is Chicken Pox (red and wht). They're called Giant Microbes. They're fantastic ^_^

Japanese Dramas ^_^

So....I've been watching A LOT of Japanese Dramas lately. It started off with Tadashii Oji No Tsukurikata (How To Produce a Prince), Hana Kimi (~the translation sort of sounds like a porn name ^_^ so I'm leaving it out), and finally Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey & Clover). They are all about an hour long with 12 episodes. I watch them with english subtitles. I'm oogling one of the actors who is sadly 2 years younger than me U_U. He's pretty good with english! ^_^

Can't wait to get my SP12 partner so I can go shopping for goodies!

SP 12 Question # 1: What is your favorite Summer Drink? Cranberry SoHo mixed with Pineapple Malibu ^_^
