05:08 pm: Pretty in pink
I finished the body portion of the yukata. Tomorrow I'll start on the okumi, otherwise known as "those odd-shaped strips sandwiched between the body and the collar." ...I probably could have started on them today, if I were faster or more efficient at sewing, but oh well.

In other random news...pink grapefruit & aloe yogurt is NOT on my hotlist of flavors. >_<

Update: I'm watching the evening news, and what do you suppose is the opening story? ...Ramen in Space. (Or, as it is abbreviated, Space Ram. 0_0 I sincerely hope this nickname is limited to Japan.)

"Space Ram." No words. Will there be a whole family of them later?

And thanks for the heads up on the aloe yogurt. ^^;

<g> There are already four types, I believe. It's not hard to imagine that they might multiply.

Aloe by itself is fine...and it's not bad with coconut or kiwi. But the pink grapefruit was just...not right.

See, I have no idea what the aloe tastes like, whereas I thought the pink grapefruit might be tart and refreshing...when I see aloe, I think of lotion! hehehehe

It's...more texture than taste. I guess if I had to liken it to something, I'd say it's similar to a white grape.

Pink grapefruit by itself or as juice or even in fruit punch is fine. But grapefruit should never be mixed with a dairy product. ~_~ It just doesn't go well.

Is the Great Agar Shortage still in effect?

I don't know...I haven't been back to the grocery store to check.

I'll probably make a trip today, since I'm dangerously low on milk.

There's a shortage of agar there? How's that possible? It's a common household item, no? *mind is boggled*

There was a shortage, apparently due to an unexpected surge in demand. I went shopping today and it's back on the shelves, so it seems the situation is under control.
