Italics, national treasure and dancing queen.

1. My pencil point has a square shape to it, like an italic nib.

2. My Neighbour Totoro -- another treasure from Studio Ghibli. It's one of those sweet films where not an awful lot happens. It is the story of two little girls discovering the secrets of a new home in the country, including soot sprites and Totoro and friends in the garden.

3. My mother forwards my cousin's birthday list. She has asked for bits of outfit for her school ball. The list includes pictures of the dress and accessories, and we agree that she is going to look beautiful.

  1. I love Totoro too...i think it's my favorite movie (and I'm almost 40 years old).

  2. The New Yorker had an article on Miyazaki and the studio. Interested me enough to hit Amazon and get several DVDs - watched the Castle, but haven't gotten to Totoro - just sad they are dubbed English and not the original voices.

  3. My Japanese is not so good, Joe, so I'm glad they were in English :-)

  4. Clare, I've suddenly realised how important the number three is. Knowing it saves us from a life as Baldrick (One, two, many).

    Anyway, thought I have another go but differently..........
