Kiss1969 yes you are correct. That commercial for the eye contacts is funny because that guy thought he was receiving a love look from the young lady, but she was squinting her eyes trying to read a sign near him.

If this creep attempts this tactic again, I hope he will find the wrong woman at the wrong time of month. She will make him regret that decision.

I am very happy to see Superfly high on the list. I actually buy her CDs and she is truly amazing.

I watched Belgium vs Tim Howard featuring the USA. What did you watch? It was an excellent match, and I was on the edge of my seat on every shot.

I do believe a month ago there was still snow on the ground in Sapporo and other parts of Hokkaido. Maybe it would be a little difficult to find a body at that time. My friends from up there are just now posting photos of their cherry blooms and spring flowers, so I guess the missing bodies from the winter will show up as well.

TokyoGas I think it would be wise to consider that the curfew is for the whole country, not just areas where you spot a military presence. It's too much of a risk to be caught outside, thinking that you are safe. This affected my friends in Phuket and they are a long way from Bangkok. They gave me word that if you have an early morning flight leaving Thailand, you must go to the airport before 10 pm the night before and prepare to stay inside the airport all evening.

I think the one of the biggest reason for the increase is due to the fact that the prime Sakura Season is in early April. I know a lot of visitors who flock to Japan just to experience the beauty in person that time of year.

I have some friends who have been in Phuket for the last few days. They say it sucks because they can't leave the hotel at night. This is the notice posted on their doors at the Phuket Renaissance Resort and Spa hotel:
A Curfew has been declared by the Military Government from 10pm until 5am tomorrow morning. We like to advise all guest to observe this. Going outside will be at your own risk. Guest departing with early flights are advised to check with their airlines. Please contact your Duty Manager for further advice.
I am glad they are heading to Singapore tomorrow for the rest of their holiday.

While watching Sumo yesterday, I heard one of the announcers mention the university name change during the broadcast because one of the Sumo wrestlers was a graduate there. I doubt anyone would laugh in his face about that school's name.

I visited one near my home and I enjoyed the fishing. It's a nice break from your day. You catch them, release the fish back into the pond, wash your hands, and go back to your normal routine.

I just saw it on the news. That bus took a huge smack and even the back window was smashed in. If anyone was sitting on that back row, they certainly got the worst blow.
