Not Dead or Anything

While August has held significantly less trauma than July, it's not really up there in my list of favorite months. Been mildly sick for weeks, and I still can't quite rid my lungs of yuck. *hackhack*

Great news about the FDA approving OTC sales of the morning-after pill! Many of you have linked to the article, so I'm not going to bother. It is a happy surprise under this administration, I'll tell you what.

Hey, are you folks aware of the all-women Japanese musical review, Takarazuka? I've been watching a bunch of clips on YouTube, and I'm simply enchanted. You should check out this clip, in which the "male" lead plays Death, besotted by a young girl who has had a near-fatal fall. It's so charming, I could spit. I wonder why the Japanese are so good at the charming?

OMG Takarazuka are so awesome! I was lucky enough to go see them in Tokyo. Came out of there with a great many new crushes, I can tell you.

I'm jealous! I want to go to Japan now, just so I can see them. The otokoyaku are better at being pretty boys than boys generally are. Guh!

Unfortunately, watashi no Nihongo wa damena desu :)

Wow, that's amazingly beautiful...also, Death's outfit is FABULOUS.

Isn't it? That tail coat! And she is positively swoon-worthy. *thud*

well, really, wouldn't you expect it to be? i mean, c'mon, it is DEATH we're talking about. death's gotten a bad rap with the whole "grim reaper" aspect. i expect s/he's quite a snappy dresser.

Hello again! I'd love to see live Kabuki theater, but the traditional all-women troupe is so... /sigh... Thank you again.
