#51- Lucky power!!!

I got a scoop today! Lucky me!

And more lucky thing happened to me…I met an “it girl”!

My friend, Ms.Kimberly Goodnight (she owned a PR company, Pure Consulting http://www.pureconsultinginfo.com/index.php) introduced me to her friend, Ms.Kendra Gratteri (I can’t write about her & her business in today’s my blog, because I am going to write an article about them for Senken-newspaper) today.

Kimberly picked me up at my place and we went to Kendra’s office this morning. I met Kendra, her boss (vice president of ******) and more people there.

Wow…I got a great story!!! Positive power makes positive business!

After our interview, we(Kendra, Kimberly and me) went out for lunch at Urth Caffe.

I am always right for first impression of people…I really liked Kimberly when I met her at first time long time ago and I felt same way to Kendra today. She is beautiful, fashionable and has a great energy and lucky power like Kimberly!

It was right my instinct that Kendra has a lucky power. When we arrived at Urth Caffe in art district, Downtown LA, she found parking spot right away and she got our table within 30 seconds. It was amazing! You know Urth Caffe, always so many people and so hard to find the parking spot and a table!

I also have luck for parking spot, but Kendra’s lucky power is more than that! There were many people on the line at Urth Caffe, but waiter found our table right away and Kendra ordered food without waiting line…OMG…thanks to Kendra.

Kendra and Kimberly are “It girl”.

Oh…it was rainy in Los Angeles this morning, but when Kimberly came to my place was no rain and was rain again when I was in her car…and when we arrived at the office where Kendra works, it wasn’t rain anymore…yes…I am a ”Hare-onna(in Japanese)", the meaning of English…woman who seem to bring good weather, lucky for weather.

It was lucky us for the weather too.

OK…now…I have to stop writing/talking about today and I have to write an article about today’s scoop.

Oh…by the way, If you have a scoop for me, please let me know...then I will bring luck to you too!

#271-Why people fight?

Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or fighting wars?

About profit?

About territory?

About religion?

About ethnicity?

About statism?

About collectivism?



Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?

People are trying to change others…

People don’t want to change for others…

People think “I am right, you are wrong”…



I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”



And then I realized “I need to think about my issue first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…



I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night ene…

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”
(http://www.senken.co.jp/report/downtown-la-eggslut/)

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” (http://www.eggslut.com) on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#273- My last email to an upstairs neighbor

After I watched abc TV 20/20 CATFISH episode (Hooking a Catfish) “How this Canadian woman catfished an NBA star and an aspiring model, almost ruining their lives” (http://abcnews.go.com/US/canadian-woman-catfished-nba-star-aspiring-model-ruining/story?id=46778331) , I totally understood about how my upstairs neighbor (woman) is thinking…
These sick women are boring about their lives and they want to make other people miserable like them.
As I wrote my blog post on April 19, 2017, I’m having a trouble with an upstairs neighbor… I was very angry but lately I feel sorry for her… she is a lonely woman (she only goes out two hours per week for grocery shopping, she doesn’t have any visitors, she is similar to that Canadian woman) and she wants someone’s attention to make her life excite and fun (in this case “evil fun”)…

For me no matter what, I’m always happy… I appreciate my life…

















Today after I saw this upstairs woman was walking around my home and peeking my home (where I sit or what am I …
