#187- 90027

Between the deadline and the deadline, I had a great lunch time with Kimberly (my sweet, sweet friend) at her home office today.

Kimberly wrote me an email a couple of weeks ago…. “HELLO Ladybug!!! I'm now your neighbor, so I was thinking we should get together and catch up. Do you want to come by or I can visit with you?”

Me: I wanna see your new place :)

Kimberly: Lunch? x

Me: Let's do :) I will bring something!

Kimberly: You bring your smile :) 12pm ok? x

Me: 12:00pm is great :) Let me know where you are. x

Kimberly: ******** LA CA 90027 *buzz top black box x

Me: Wow, same zip code :) I will bring my famous sandwiches for us :)

Kimberly: YUM, ok I'll have very simple salad or soup.

Me: I look forward to seeing you!


[This morning…]

Kimberly: Sorry my intern D*** will be with us. I'll share my sandwich :)

Me: I can make some extra then :) xoxo

Kimberly: So sweet! x


I like Kimberly very much, because she is always sweet. Who could say always, “You bring your smile :) ” ?

I really appreciate her friendship.


*******


Kimberly is an owner of PR company, PUREconsulting (www.pureconsultinginfo.com).

Her home office & showroom is very beautiful and stylish like herself.

Many people want to work with her, because she is a very reliable person. I can trust her anything.

Today, we had my turkey hamburg[er] steak (we, Japanese people eat hamburg[er] steak as a main dish, like a meatloaf) sandwich, my coffee caramel sauce sandwich and her salad.

We had the “SEX AND THE CITY” moments and I really had a nice time with her and her intern today.

And I was a FENG SHUI counselor for her new place, but she has already great FENG SHUI at her place. She didn’t need my help.


*******

When I got an urgent project last night (the deadline was tonight. Yes, I finished it!), I was almost going to tell her that “can I get a rain check?”, but I didn’t.

Promise is promise (especially, we made our plan long time ago) for me, and I really wanted to see her today.

I managed everything fine today. My feng shui is working as well :)

Great friends make my life colorful. Thank you for all my friends!


How was your day? I hope you had a nice day 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…

Do you know about “The Slut”?I mean, “eggslut”?

If you don’t, you will enjoy my column on Senken-Shimbun (major Japanese fashion business newspaper) website.

Here is my translation of my column into English from Japanese.
Enjoy :)

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 …
