Cool! A day for tongue twisters!It's a contest presented by the Logic Puzzle Museum. I don't think I would be able to compete.Occasionally, I can be pretty good with saying them. I guess I have to be in the right mood to be 'successful' with it. But, they're fun. Supposedly, according to the Guinness World Records, the most difficult tongue twister to say is: "The sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick."
It's still been pretty cold. Although, yesterday, at least the sun was out. Today, it was very dark. Apparently, they're forecasting snow for next weekend. Yay!Dad comes home really late tonight. That'd be nice. Oh, and I got my voucher for the JLPT! Wahoo!
Yesterday, I finally did my own Shabbat service.Ended up being for the afternoon, but I still did it. Since we stopped going regularly to services at the synagogue, I needed something to replace it. It was kind of funny using an older version of our prayer books.
The Torah portion was really trippy and packed with stuff.About Sodom and Gomorrah, angels, Isaac, and more. Next week's the one that I studied and read for my Bat Mitzvah, called Chayei Sarah or the Life of Sarah. (It's starting to become a long time since my Bat Mitzvah.)
Watched Himitsu no Arashi Chan. This time they did another segment on Ageha magazine and Gal Culture. That stuff kind of scares me.They found a girl who was obsessed with Gal Culture, that also happened to be one of Ageha's models. She lives in a rural town where there aren't too many other girls who are into that sort of thing. She gets up at 3am, and spends 4 hours fixing her hair and makeup.Then, she goes to bed at 8. She's very strict about how late she stays up. They took her to 3 different places she's always wanted to go to in Tokyo. One, a shop where they decorate anything you give them into a 'Gal Style'. Second, a lingerie shop specifically for people who are into it. Third, the store she mostly mail-orders from online. The owner's her idol. Interesting view into her world.
The next segment was on Sakurai and Ohno babysitting a toddler. They had just gotten a 'Childminder' certificate. This system started in the UK. Anyways, this toddler, Kohaku, was their first real test. After the mom left, the kid started crying and then became very depressed. They tried to use some tricks they learned from the course, but it only made things worse.Eventually, she tired herself out, but still proceeded to cry at the same time she was yawning. Kind of cute. Finally, Sakurai picked her up and patted her on the back, and she fell asleep on him (drooled all over the place, too). Problem was, how to take her off of him to put her down to sleep without waking her up. After that, she really bonded with them. When they were about to leave she was depressed again.
In Pandora Hearts, Oz was wandering aimlessly in the prison called Abyss. This episode seemed even more Alice and Wonderland-y. Weird dolls started attacking him. He was saved from them by, yet again, Alice or B-Rabbit. As soon as she started talking to him, he found a cookie jar. All he was interested in were the cookies. Anyways, later he makes a contract with Alice in order to get them both out of the Abyss. After he does that, she takes over his body. It works, but I can't tell if she has evil intentions or not. I'm liking this so far.
deviantART fave: 11:11:11 This is by an artist I watch. I really like his style. This one's a cute flash(?) of 2 of his characters. One of them being from his video 'Draw With Me' (which is amazing! And, apparently famous now on Youtube), and his older brother. This happened just before the boy discovered the glass wall. Cool that he's gone back to that story. It really was awesome!
