Kittens ok - maybe ate green pepper leaves. Now bouncy again. Currently sleeping.
Okaasan ok - chatty about the Olympics, hairdressers, food...even GAVE me chocolate!
Yujiro ok - gone to tax office job.
Oyomesan....time to idly wonder....WHO will play me in the movie when this blog leaps from the computer screen to the cinema screen?
A popular cartoon book called "My Darling is a Foreigner" is about to become a movie.
Artist Saori Oguri's 2002 hit book about life with American, journalist husband Tony Laszlo tapped into that endless Japanese fascination with international relationships and managed to hold up the mirror to Japanese life at the same time.
The book and the movie are aimed at Japanese women - and the dream foreign man is a boyish, gentle person...not the opinionated, loud gaijin of reality.
So. When Okaasan and Me becomes a movie. Who will play me?
Hmmm...Ingrid Bergman is dead. So I'll go for Julia Ormond...she was in the remake of Sabrina with Harrison Ford, and in Legends of the Fall with Brad Pitt.
Of course in reality...slumping around in my dressing gown, whch smells suspiciously of kitten food...
