Yutanpo is my best friend

Sunday, January 28, 2007

This is a post about random junk of little importance.

I don't remember if I mentioned it or not, but I was given a Yutanpo for Christmas/New Years from one of the women that I give private English lessons to. It has been the coolest thing I have ever experienced! She gave me a cute little pig cover to put it in :)

Anyway, because I have that cool little hot water holder (which I fill with boiling water so it stays pretty warm until....ohhhhh the next afternoon) I don't need to use my heater at night. Usually I stick it on a timer so when I wake up I'm usually sweating from the yutanpo but the room is warm nonetheless. However, this is the weekend and I don't have to wake up early so I haven't put the heater on since, lord knows when I'll be getting up and もたいない! (don't be wasteful!)

Well I didn't realize just how cold it gets in the mornings here and the cold air around me and the warmth of my futon makes sleeping such a joyous activity. I was laying in my futon this morning just fantasizing about how wonderful it was to be sleeping so comfortably. That is until someone rang my doorbell, stupid jerk.

So I was riding my bike to the mall when I saw a young Japanese couple. They were quite a cute pair riding their bikes together and laughing. As I came closer towards them, the boy reached over and took the girls arm to help her steer out of my way. (Personally I would have shot my boyfriend for doing something like that, but in the moment, I thought it was sweet.) The girl was cute but I was mostly looking at the guy in this split second of an event and I could help but notice that he had berets in his hair in a very girly fashion way. And that's what some of these guys do! They look absolutely ridiculous! I started giggling about it as they passed and then I just burst into full laughter. Which was worse, that he looked ridiculous or that I wanted to be the girl he was with?!

Hopefully Kae will be helping me pick out a bed sometime soon. I'm so over sleeping on the floor!

My internet connection has been pissing me off to no end. If I use it as wireless then I get a huge firewall I can't seem to disable. If I plug it in I get an ungodly fast upload speed and a super slow download speed unless I'm directly connected (a rare occurance) and then the speeds are through the roof....wft (0.o)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Incidently, I've been looking through all my bills and from what I can gather, I have yet to pay for internet or water.

Both are still running as they should so....should I be worried?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'll kill the person that woke me this morning. It's freakin cold!

I hope you enjoyed the post. I have nothing more to say.

Did you ever find out who was at the door? Also, describe a yutanpo more - what the heck is it? Is it something you put in the bed with you or a heater that heats up the room? Sorry to be so slow...mom

Duh mah-om, the word yutanpo is hot linked to a page that talks all about it. It even has pictures!

But for all you other ignoramuses out there, a yutanpo is a plastic or metal bottle that you fill with water and then stick in a cloth bag so you don't burn yourself. Mine is plastic and originally I thought that it would only keep one spot in the futon warm but it really does the trick. And I don't have to run the heater all night! I love it!
