It's funny, how these things happen. My mother called today wanting to spend the New Years with us.....around five days too late. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry or just hang up. I told her she'd missed the date and that Minoru was out with her friends anyway, grabbing some freedom days before the next term starts. I hope mother's been eating. But if she's forgotten what day it is, I doubt it. Scientists! Never know what to do with them! Still haven't heard from father. I might just march down to his office and shake him. Or chuck tennis balls at him.

But I've been managing to get some free time, since Minoru's out with friends and filming is on hiatus while everyone returns from holidays. Spent some time with my plants, and I painted some landscapes. I went out to Tokyo street centre and did some paintings of the urban scene and some temples. It was lovely, though I had to ignore the people there, since they wouldn't stand in one place for me!

I had some time to think to myself though, and I've been tossing around ideas for that little miracle of mine. Tell me Echizen, does your father ever enter competitions with magazines and newspapers to win things or go places? Or would you or someone close to you?

Back in Tokyo. And my plants are not dead. This is an improvement from last time. Minoru says it's still creepy that my house has more garden space than actual living space, but up until now, I didn't need the living space.

...I found the acting script though, Kura, and...there are a lot more lines than I expected. But it appears I am not the stereotypical villain! No huge expository monologue that make little to no sense! This is a step up for the contemporary villain. Seems people are learning from Marvel comics and Loki. But of course, the sister always finds something to poke fun at and it's at the fact that my hair will come down to mid-back, making me look more like a girl than ever. (It's good to know her mood isn't dampened by this whole thing.)

I....am going to sleep for a good long while, middle of the day or not.

Hah, it was nice to get a break before I got into the final leg of the tournament season this year. Shanghai Masters is my current tournament (that I'm on the plane towards), and then I'll be heading to Switzerland for Basel, then Paris Masters, so it's a busy month in October. I was thinking of doing a smaller tournament as well, inbetween the larger ones so I could accumulate a few more points in time for the Barclays World Tour Final, but I'm not sure whether to stick with Vienna or Stockholm.

Thanks again, Saeki-kun, for your advice on the plants to get for my garden, after my previous gardener ruined it. I'm very grateful for your help :)

Don't overwork yourself Genichirou! And have fun on your hiking trip, Yukari-chan!

My garden is looking better. Three days of non-stop work pays off, it seems. I also managed to paint a few new pictures, though they weren't as good as my usual paintings. Also had a photoshoot with a perfume company and a contract signed for a guest appearance in some popular sitcom. Looks like my schedule during the off season's going to be as busy as ever ^^; Whoop-de-fucking-doo

I'm getting rather fed up of reporters asking me how I feel about losing the US Open. Losing isn't fun and it motivates me to do better. What else do they want me to say? I cry in bed at night? I drown my sorrows in alcohol? I'm swearing revenge or something? Honestly....Like I'd say anything like that to them.

Niou, are we still on for coding and general computer handling lessons? I think we should probably start once the off-season really begins in November. I'll be free in Japan for that time period.

-Yours tiredly, Seiichi

Someone out there really doesn't like me this week....I arrived back home and eight of my flowers have died. Or. are close to death, but I may have to kill them to put them out of their misery, since there's no way they're going to recover again.

...I can regrow them and replant them and make them better than they were before, but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt to see them go. It's like seeing pets or children die, especially after I dedicated so much time to keeping them alive.

...I need a new gardener who knows what the fuck they're doing. Excuse me while I go play tennis against the wall until the wall or my racket breaks.

Hmmm, today was troublesome. Though, it was perhaps my own fault for deciding to install the new bird feeders myself on watering day. I figured they'd leave my plants alone if I designated them an area in my garden for them to go to. I'll have to see how that works in the days to come. But thank you for the CD trick, Akaya, it's working like a charm against the strawberry plants.
And I'm contemplating the pros and cons of getting sprinklers for the plants. On the one hand, it would mean less work for myself, but it's such a waste of water, when a can of water will do the trick.

Echizen, we still need to sort out that CD. Luckily the release date isn't until after the US Open, but I'd rather not procrastinate. I have a few lyrics ideas and musical arrangements...but if you'd prefer to get a studio to write it for us, we can do that too. Do you play any instruments?
