After getting a temperature of almost 39c, I decided to send Rilakkuma out to pick up some supplies. Since we have a Typhoon coming in as well, the local convenience store seemed the perfect place to visit, not too far and lots of choices.

      yes, its hard to decide whether to pitch the conbini monday to Japan or US time. I try to get it out after lunch in Japan where possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You must have posted the conbini article after I went to bed, and that was at Midnight, central time.
    sorry to hear about the fever. In your other article, I had to look up the word febrill, never heard that word before. But it’s good that you have trusty Rilakkuma to help you out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great stuff he picked out, just the right things to make you feel better. He’s truely a great friend. I know you”ll get much better with his help, Take care.
    Btw ken leewrites in his article http://tinyurl.com/mr73ww Kirin makes autumn flavored beer, wonder what that tastes like?

    1. shibuya246 says

      Those beers look really interesting, but I probably not in the ber drinking mood right now. Thanks for link. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didnt know what febrile was either, but figured from the Japanese that was me.

    Ah – those are ochazukes…. i was wondering what those were. Im still learning hiragana here n there, and couldnt recognize the first character. Out of curiosity – do you mix the content of the package with hot tea? or just hot water?

    I have tried that brand of ochazuke in Seattle, they sell it at Uwajimaya. I like the umeboshi flavor!
