Friday Fill-in #23

1. I love springtime in Japan!
2. Homemade muffins (my mom's banana oatmeal muffins were the best!) or freshly baked croissants are foods I love to eat for breakfast.
3. It seems I'm always searching or the Internet for a name that's on the tip of my tongue.
4. Reading in bed is a great way to end the day.
5. I think I have a serious book-buying problem! I just ordered more books despite all the unread ones on the shelves! sigh.
6. Olives and cheese are what I've been craving lately.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing and maybe watching some TV, tomorrow my plans include spending time with H and Sunday, I want to stay home and read since the forecast is for rain!


  1. What would we do without imdb? I wonder if that will affect our memory in the long run?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi tanabata :)

    I like your answers for 1 and 2, we seem to have the same thoughts,a country, mine is Swizerland and I also love croissants and something called 'Petit pain au chocolat'.

    Ah yes! books, and unread books, i know the problem.

  3. Yum! I love homemade muffins.

    I use a lot too, so you aren't alone in that.

    Your answer to #4 is perfect! (*wink*) And I am so with you on #5. I'm drowning in books.

    Have a good weekend, Tanabata! Rainy weather is perfect for reading.

  4. our #4 answers are basically the same! have a great weekend!

  5. Ohh, banana muffins sound great!

    And of course, I'm with you on number 5 :P

    Have a great weekend :)

  6. I love springtime in Nebraska. I just wish it would arrive. It's 37 and we have snow flurries! I'm always searching for my chapstick and reading glasses. I've been craving an outing in my kayak and some floating time in a pool. Soon! Off to read more of The Girl With No Shadow.

  7. Mmmm.. those banana oatmeal muffins sound scrumptious. I don't understand your book-buying problem but I share it. Have a good weekend.

  8. Janet- No kidding. H will usually try to figure it out on his own but I immediately go for imdb. It's so much easier! ;)

    Madeleine- I LOVE pain au chocolat!! Now I have a serious craving! :P

    Literary Feline- Drowning but unwilling to stop! Now the weather says it may not rain tomorrow but it'll still be pretty cloudy. Oh well. Staying home to read still sounds like a nice idea.

    alisonwonderland- I think a lot of people put similar answers for #4. All us bookworms anyway. :)

    Nymeth- Yup, I went and ordered from The Book Depository yesterday. Can't wait for the Pullman book to get here.

    Les- Snow? Still? Hope spring finally settles in to stay for you soon.

    Booklogged- LOL. I may feel a little guilt from time to time but I have no intention of stopping! :P

  9. What a beautiful header, the flower, gorgeous! and your new Reading Japan photo, very nice!

    I did not know where to post this

  10. IMDB is a lifesaver..or at least a sanity saver. I use it allllll the time. I was watching Labyrinth last night (for the bazillionth time) and when I saw the dad I had this flash of him being in a Star Wars film flying one of the ships. IMDB to the rescue, he was in Empire Strikes Back. Once I saw what film he was in it came right to me that he was the guy flying the speeder that went looking for Han and Luke after their night spent out in the cold. I don't know what I'd do without that site.

    We all have serious book buying problems, don't we? Between that and tempting internet artwork I could end up in the poorhouse.

    Our warm spring temps have taken a wintery turn today and I'll be spending my weekend inside reading as well. Enjoy yours.

  11. Mmm..croissants! We have this great French bakery close to our home, it's our occasional breakfast treat. I am hooked on the ham and cheese croissants, which is every other instance I hate ham.

    Have a happy weekend!

  12. Madeleine- Thanks. I was playing around with some photos yesterday and then never got back on the computer to mention it, so here's fine. :)
    Feel free to grab any Reading Japan buttons that you like. I'll probably be changing them sometimes to fit my mood, like the headers. :)

    Carl- is a definite lifesaver. As for tempting internet artwork, I usually have you to blame for that! :P

    Nyssaneala- Of course fresh croissants in a cafe in Paris are the best but some others can be pretty good too. :)
    Hope you're having a good weekend too.
