Chocolate and Ryu-chan have some strange side-effects when put together. *cough*
I got down and watched the Hyoutei in Winter Myu the other night with mom. Well, really it was more like "you think those two make a hot couple?" and "omg HAND HOLDING!" and things like that. Mom and I do weird crap all the time like this, but this was the DVD she had been watching.
(She's been like that since our dinner together the four of us. She watches that backstage far too much.)
Mom's good, if you've wondered. She and I made some curry and tempura the other night. I forgot how much fun that was. We made quite a mess and she just about had a heart attack when I started cutting roman letters out of the veggies and meat to tempura-ize. We spelled out some fun words ('banana', 'sticky note', and 'moose' for a few). Mom's always wanted to learn some English. So it's fun to teach like that.
Went to the temple too this weekend, with mom (I mean my grandmother's temple, mind you). There's a caretaker who we all call Ojiisan, and he's been pruning the trees and bushes and such around the property. (It's gorgeous.) We were having tea in one of the gardens with him and he asked me something that I've not been able to stop thinking about. He's known my family for several years, and he knows I love to travel. Ojiisan asked me if I was ever going to travel again. I want to so much, but I don't know where to, yet. I haven't decided, though I want to go down to New Zealand. It looks awesome there. But what got me to thinking was, he asked if after I was done traveling 'are you going to settle down somewhere? With a nice girl? Going to keep acting and performing?'
Well, though the 'nice girl' part is certainly a moot point now, the rest of it makes me wonder. I'm doing what I love to do, getting the experiences I want, traveling, seeing the world. I'm happy with how things are right now (except the whole Kenn-not-being-able-to-be-around-so-much thing, that I would change in a heartbeat.), and I really can't fathom things changing. I told mom as much when we had dinner that night at the temple (when we were alone). She gave me a serious look and asked me if I ever was going to settle down ('settle down' meaning in mom-speak get married or handfasted, whichever). She knows about the ... um... yeah. The second worst thing I've ever done in my life... and she said to me "Oi, Takkun... I thought sincerely that you would've given this some thought." I have, and she knows it, but it seems I'm never quite where mom thinks I should be.

Kenn-chan? Come home soon, please? I miss you.
