Anime Ratty

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Anime Ratty Photo by Charl, 'improvements' by Chris. Chris saw the image of my sister's cat, Ratty, up on Flickr and did an anime 'improvement'. The scary part? That expression really DOES reflect Ratty's personality.

Kia, the Tube Cat

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

Note: Dad - I just spoke to the Commonwealth Bank and they say the credit cards will arrive at my Australian address by Thursday. They take a week to arrive, usually, but Anzac Day will have slowed them down. Walked into the Tube at 2pm, feeling a bit down. I'd just ...

So a group of us, including my boyfriendj, went to Michitaro. There was a wireless hotspot in Michitaro restaurant but I couldn't use it for some reason. Also, the pork katsu don was a bit raw tonight. There was also a wireless hotspot in Starbucks, but they wanted to charge $5 ...
