Name of anime (based on a manga): Banana Bread no Pudding

Description: Now that Ira's older sister is getting married, who will take her to the bathroom after 10 p.m. and sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" outside the bathroom door in order to protect her from the beautiful, androgynous, child-eating clown? Will marrying a closeted gay man help?

(I had to read it aloud to my husband and brother-in-law.)

*tears of laughter*

(It's from 1977.)

SHOKUPIN DISUPURE POWAAAA!!!

OK, bear with me.

Exhibit A: Sampuru.

These are Japanese plastic food models, AKA "sampuru" (here's how they're made--4 pages with photos at the end). They're meticulously crafted and can cost a lot, even $100 a dish.

Exhibit B: Rement.

These are Rement-brand miniature food items. (Can you see where we're going with this?)

Exhibit C:

Model Food Models

These are Rement-brand miniature food models.

THAT'S RIGHT, FOLKS. WE HAVE MODEL MODELS!

Where will the madness end?!

(Nowhere, I hope. Thank you, Japan!)

P. S. Sorry for the awful photos--it took me forever to even get them this good, because I was using the MacBook Pro's no-focus, forced-low-res camera. Bah.

He was at Half-Price Books, flipping through the vinyl. He was wearing a tasteful striped shirt, black pants, black shoes, and huge fricking gold-rimmed sunglasses. And he had a black pompadour and wicked sideburns.


(I'm not even kidding. I suppose he was probably an actual Elvis impersonator, rather than just some dude with an odd haircut and eyewear. Ah, the times I wish I had a cell phone camera! I would have showed you our dessert--[livejournal.com profile] assaultdoor got the blue Ox drink on the top row and mixed fruit of 13 specialties. I just got green tea creme brulee and a hot tangerine & honey drink. If I were making an sf TV show, I'd just have all the meal scenes catered by Hong Kong and Taiwanese "healthy dessert" places. Check out the rest of the 37 Degree Dessert Cafe menu here. And to top things off, they were playing a HK movie featuring a policeman who was a werewolf-vampire. Oh, and I got a pristine copy of Susannah Clarke's short story collection at the bookstore! Best evening ever!)

Um...
