Quiz results

Random post, just took some quizzes and was amused by the results.


As a 1930s husband, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!



As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

Take the test!

Though, I got a -3 on the first try for the wife role. ^^; Not quite sure how that worked. The change, I mean. But I'm ridiculously amused by all this nonsense.

It's really really really hot. Feels hotter than France, but is probably about 7~10 degrees cooler and twenty times more humid. D: Will update with pictures and full posts when I get back. <333

New purchases!

Just recently bought two things from Ryu. Firstly, geta. Nice geta that will fit me. Though they may still be a little too big. They're 23 cm and I think I fit a 22 cm shoe. But, that's still better than the ukon geta from Daiso (XD) that fit a 22 - 26 or so. They're huge on me. And they splash dirt up onto the back of my legs. Not quite fun. Secondly, a nagoya obi. Hopefully this one fits me a little better than the silver and pink one. *crosses fingers* I haven't had a chance to measure the silver/pink one yet. (The silver one doesn't quite fit around my waist/ribcage whil still keeping the correct amount of tail. I have an 80 cm ribcage, but it shouldn't alter the fit that much, right?)

In other news, I finished my budget for Japan. I'm going to be so broke when I get back. XD But my father found some cash in an old wallet from when he went to Japan years ago (I think he said about 47,000 ¥, 8D though probably less) that I can bring with. That'll probably cover most of the food for the trip. And subway tickets in Tokyo. XD

Okay, trying to get the hang of this...

I need to get in the habit of using this thing. Especially now that I've got pictures of my kimono (and am going to Japan in just over a month to get more). It's just a matter of getting them on my computer. Razrs are made of epic fail, I must say. If only because it's too bloody hard to get them to transfer photos to the computer. I will be updating again with photos of my new (as of February) houmongi, home-made nagoya obi, juban purchased at the same time as the houmongi, nagoya obi a friend purchased for me a month or two ago, michiyuki, hanhaba obi, and yukata. I've got pictures of my komon though! Tiny, but it's what I've got right now. I think I'll try wearing this one sometime in the upcoming days now that I have juban, probably taking a few pictures of my kitsuke as well. Wish me luck?

Edit: Got the Houmongi picture. Or at least one of them. It's got the lining as well as the design included.
