It's not too spoilery re details ... but, if you know absolutely nothing and want to keep it that way, considered yourself warned.

Oh Top Gear seasons are TOO SHORT! Only Six eps! but they are hugely long so that offsets it I guess! *hugs those guys anyway*

It was a great season. Lots of Japan stuff! I went to Ishikawa last year - where they started the Nissan GTR versus the shinkansen race from.

And the Axis versus Allies Powers Challenge in this last ep had me laughing my head off ~ esp. all the nods to WWII films like The Great Escape (James May dumping gravel down his trouser leg on the race track was hilarious *g*) and that one that I can never remember the name of where there was an en masse escape of POW soccer players from a match put on by the Germans. Hee!

I also liked the two guest star drivers - a bit of a variation on previous years. Oh it's too long to wait for next year! *whines*

I have been hibernating for the last 5 days, so not much chance of catching up on the flist. If you've posted anything fic-cy, art-y or otherwise important do let me know! Otherwise I've still got the secret santa fic set as a homepage for instant reading pleasure. I'm barely one third of the way through the list though.

Uh, it's been a Brit Classics Romantic Escapism kind of hibernate. I have only one day left of Holiday/Hibernation.

Had a productive catch up day now that I'm on holidays. First the gym - swam 34 of the not so usual 40 laps. But yeah 40 is what I should do!

Then off to Yoshiko's for a haircut. I love her shoulder massages. I'm touch deprived! She has now fixed up the botched effort I made on keeping my hair boyishly short, and may I say it's now really short!

Then I paid my City tax (Wow, and that's a hike/hit with the National Govt. handing over all these responsibilities to the Prefectures this year). Then went to City Hall to pay to get rid of my bread-maker (400 yen), which is broken - pick up by the recycle centre people is tomorrow, outside my building - and then renewed my Foreigner's Card in said same City Hall (I have to wait two weeks for the new one, but all the business is done for it).

Then I bought 10 000 yen worth of new bed linen at Takashimaya (Summer Sale) and it's all beautiful U.S cotton. It feels so good. Hmm, I've got a friend coming up to visit and I just felt I needed to do that.

Then up to the 11th floor for a superb Italian Lunch set. Yum - a bit costly at 1450 yen but well worth it! Loved the charred sea bream Main, but the chicken spaghetti with cream tomato sauce was delish too. Finished with a coffee mousse and some ice cream that tasted vaguely of passion fruit, but I wasn't sure.

Then I decided to indulge more, with a film. Wednesday is Ladies Day in Gifu so it's only 1000 yen (as opposed to 1600 yen every other day). I'd seen The Queen and 300, so "Pirates of the Caribbean" it was!
