Two more pictures – some lovely silver hoop earrings I bought today:

And secondly, a bobble-head ninja for my car:

The story: my old car had a bobble-head maneki-neko (Japanese lucky cat) I kept on the dashboard. I’m not superstitious; however, since that car ended up smashed into the back of a parked SUV after I had an unavoidable skid across wet leaves on a rainy October night – and since my sternum and ribs were bruised and required a visit to the ER, bed rest, and a prescription for Percocet – I’m thinking I don’t want to mimic that pattern or set-up: driving a Mazda with a bobble-head cat.

I am driving a different Mazda, and a ninja is a better figurehead.

It’s raining. Tomorrow will be a day for spring cleaning; tonight will be Netflix night. I have I’m Not There (the movie in which six different actors, including Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale, portray Bob Dylan), Sunshine (potentially bad sci-fi movie with Cillian Murphy/his ridiculously lovely blue eyes) and Wristcutters: A Love Story which I watched last night with friends, but merits re-watching.

One thought on “hoops and ninjas

  1. Hey! You have a pretty cool blog going on here. Sorry to be the random stranger bothering you, but I saw your ninja bobblehead and I am deeply, deeply envious! My best friend also lost his favorite samurai bobblehead to a car crash(and I swear he was more distraught over it than the car) and, being the martial arts nut that he is, has been searching high and low for a replacement. His birthday is coming up and I have been dying to get him a new ninja bobblehead…only none are available in my area. I made this account to get in touch with you in hopes that you might be able to help me out: through Paypal or whatever means you deem fit, do you think you’d be able to sell and ship me one? My email is but if it’s too much of a hassle, feel free to competely ignore this post.
