My Dear Friends: I will have to take a break from WordPress for a few weeks in order to pay more attention to work related activities. You see I process requests for agricultural chemicals. The work is very dull … very dreary. I would often break up the mundane workday by listening to my favorite Jpop singers, many of whom have been recommended by my fellow writers here on WP. Unfortunately, my “in” box at the office and at home is so over-stuffed I will have to stop posting new material for a while.
EDIT: My comments deleted here …
Double unfortunately I will also not be able to read your posts as much as I would like, dear hearts. I may check my messages from time to time, and maybe go in and delete my Spam (… holy Magi-carp … I just now looked … I had no idea how much spam was in there. I hate it … how it is now harder to access your spam folder … what with all the changes to the interface WP has made … Sorry, that I digress… )
I will not be able to make very my usual witty, Oscar Wilde-like comments on your posts. When I can return, I will make sure to review all of my favorite bloggers. My comments on topical issues may be delayed, but never will they be permanently waylaid.
Please enjoy one of my favorite Hanako Oku songs “Kaette Oide” which translates as “Return Home” or “Come Home”. I’m not sure which is the better translation, but I know The Little Great One’s song was used as a commercial jingle for frozen vegetables. No, I’m not making that up, the commercial used to be on YouTube (Record Industry Weasels took it down, but don’t get me blogging about that right now.) During the commercial, a nice lady comes home from work all tired, and she then has to worry about feeding her family. Good thing that she has a pack of (Whatever-Brand) easy-to-prepare food. Vegetable, meat (I think) and sauce all in the same easy-to-heat package. Kaette Oide.
It is sweet, emotional song. Oh, Ms. Oku is my Raison d’être. The reason for this blog in the first place.
If I only had a brain … a heart … and some courage …
I will return in mid-March … I have NOT YET said everything I want to say about Japanese Pop Culture. I will still give your posts a read when I am able. Although I will be able to compose little, I do want your latest Jpop, art and fashion news, the Pokemon events, and exactly what happens on that anime about the Lesbian Bears everyone has been talking about.
As if the computer nerd hackers would ever figure that out.
