5 Movies/DVDs That I Have Watched Recently

Brokeback Mountain
Café Lumière (Japanese film)
Pride & Prejudice
Vanity Fair

5 TV Shows That I Tend to Watch
- Keeping in mind that Japan is either a bit behind or years behind for American shows!!!

Alias (currently Season 3 here but since I'd never watched it before it's all new to me and the season 1 and 2 catch-up marathons were good fun!)
CSI (currently Season 3 here so lots of repeats for us)
Lost (Season 2 will start here next month)
and I'd really like to be watching House (we saw the first few episodes in the UK and I'm pretty close to breaking down and buying the DVD of Season One), ER (I was all caught up to the end of season ELEVEN in the UK, but they're only showing season FIVE here at the moment), and maybe Desperate Housewives since I saw the first season.
And we'll be getting the DVD of 24- Season 5 when it's available.

5 Restaurants I have Visited Recently

Sushi Misakimaru (sushi bar)
Tsurutontan (udon restaurant)
Tenya (cheap tempura)
Freshness Burger - probably the 2nd burger I've had this year! But we needed a quick bite before the movie, it was next door to the cinema, and it was raining!
um, can't think of a 5th. Haven't been eating out much lately for some reason.

5 Foods That I Currently Enjoy Snacking On

tomatoes (LOVE tomatoes, it's a sad day when our fridge doesn't have tomatoes in it!)
grapefruit (weird, maybe, but I love sour things, and very refreshing in hot weather)
kakinotane = small spicy rice crackers with peanuts
some variation of the many stick type snacks available in Japan, Pretz if I'm in a salty mood, Pocky for a sweet mood.

5 Musicians that I currently listen to

Dixie Chicks - talk about reverse psychology! I'd heard of them but country music??? so I'd never bothered to listen to them. But then I heard the story on CNN recently about all the controversy over some anti-Bush sentiments. So I just had to buy their latest album!
Emilie Simon
The Arcade Fire
Brad Sucks
Also spend a considerable amount of my ipod listening time on podcasts, such as Planet Japan, which always makes me laugh.


  1. You TOTALLY have to buy House, season 1. Amazing!

    And I've recently converted a friend of mine to the dark side with the Chicks' new album. They're my heroines (Bush blows!).

  2. I'm with Andi. House is fabulous and I'm completely addicted. Watched the entire first season on Netflix and can't wait for season two. I have a huge crush on Hugh Laurie and his character in the show.
