#88- Dearest Suzie

Hi S,

Tomorrow is your birthday.

Happy Birthday!!! Have a wonderful day and a fantastic year!!!

Since we have became friends in the bathroom at dormitory of SDSU. You are my best friend. Thank god, that day was in 1987 summer.

I remember that you asked me a first funny question in the bathroom.

S: Good morning! Are you already ready to go to the class?

Y: Good morning…no…I just got back from the party…I am going to sleep now.

S: Oh…wow! aha ha ha!!!

Do you remember? I was all dressed up like a MADONA and wearing heavy make-up…but you asked me a question very polite way like a Japanese girl…ha ha ha! You too much learned Japanese and Japanese culture, huh!


I remember when I was in the cafeteria with you, having a dinner together, I said to you…

Y: I love American food!!! I love hamburger and pizza! I ate too much!

S: Do you really like these??? aha ha ha!!!


Yes, we are laughing a lot and talking a lot since then.

You always make me so happy to talk to. You enjoy me and I enjoy you! You always look at things funny way and positive way. That’s why I really love you!

You have such a positive attitude for life. Good for you!!! I am really enjoying life with you and you make my life happy!!!

Thank you so much for being such a great friend and a sweet sister!

I am very happy that you married to my old friend and have two beautiful daughters. Even though we had some issues between me and you & your husband (who is my old friend) for 8 years…I always thought about you as my life time friend during 8 years(during we didn’t talk or see each other).

Out of blue…you found me 2 years ago…I was so happy to reunion with you & your husband.

Since 2 years ago…our friendship grew really strong, right? OMG…We are friends for 23 years.

I guess we needed the time (8 years) to establish our strong friendship again. Don’t you think???

You are my forever friend. Let’s have more fun together for long long time!!!

Anyway, I love you and have a wonderful new year!

Love,
Y

#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 …
