So, away from the matching topic, although let me say that if you're into matching your kiddies, go for it! As a commenter said, it really is all about personal taste!
And as for Ash getting SIL love, seriously, this kid gets enough love and presents and cuddles, he doesn't need matching jumpers from dog-fucker. But it's true, it's nicer she wanted something for him rather than ignoring him completely or something...maybe...is it?? Hmmm.......
On a totally different topic, I'm playing the game 'Guess who?' with my junior high school kiddies this week (Gotta love having your own school, you can play natsukashii games for half an hour and call it an English lesson!!) and I have a right mind to write to the makers! What's the bet that the staff at Milton Bradley are, say, hmmmm 90% male?? Because the people on their game board are! There are 24 game pieces, and 5, yes, 5 are women. What the fuck is with that!? Not only does it fuck the game up if someone picks a woman they're bound to lose, but it's just plain sexist! I actually spent 10 minutes discussing this with my students today and we ended up drafting an angry letter together! (I didn't explain the swear words)
I can understand it being like this back in the dark ages, but come on people, lets leave the blatant sexism for Japanese games/workplaces/society at least!
Right, off to have a beer and continue ignoring Ryota as he is being an absolute arse. More on this when the final result is clear, it'll be either
1) Continued ignoring.... tedious and not preferred.
2) Apology from him and make-up shag... happy happy joyful life! preferred.
3) Death by surfboard crack to the head, me fleeing the country and blogging from somewhere in South America... interesting and exciting but a lot of work.
