About Me & This Page

I have been a fan of Japanese characters my whole life, and about 20 years ago I became a fairly serious collector of character goods. I collect UFO catcher and other limited plush, figures and miniatures such as Re-ment and Nendoroid, and stationery/“kawaii” products like Sumikko Gurashi and Sanrio. And sometimes other things!

I also like movies and crafts and languages and manga and the like, and I have a possum-like dog and a cat who may worry about her body shape and the best partner in the world, and we live in a house full of interesting things of minimal money value and a lot of potential random interest. When I’m not working, I study Japanese, try to reduce myself to a fat level slightly less than 99%, and read.

I used to blog quite a bit back in the day, and after it seems the world’s stress level roughly tripled overnight, mine included, I thought I might take it up again. Nothing here is sponsored or promoted (if it ever is, I’ll say so). This is just a personal blog.

I don’t want to overly censor myself here, and I do have an odd sense of humor and like horror movies, so I won’t say this space is always SFW or all-ages, but I’ll tag and warn and am generally here to behave myself and share cute, offbeat things ☆

私は10年間ぐらい日本語を勉強していますが、書く事も話す事もあまり上手じゃありません。それでも、日本の文化とか言語学とか興味がありますで、毎日頑張ります。いつもお世話になります、よろしくお願いします。^ – ^
