I like playing video games, reading books/manga and watching all types of anime series. I love and collect anime stuff, too. :) Aside from these, I also like detective and forensic type of shows and documentaries. I'm a fan of L'arc-en-ciel; I'm also fond of listening to anime aongs and even background music from the series or the games I played :D I like fiction books especially those authored by Sidney Sheldon.

Username Info: Teru-Teru-Bozu or Teru Bozu is a hand made doll in Japan made of cotton cloth, tissue paper and string. It serves as an amulet for good weather; thus, it is usually found hanging by the window. Teru Bozu originated from the story of a monk who promised to bring good weather for the farmers. The farmers ended up killing the monk however, as he failed to fulfill his promise. This is why the last stanza of the teru-teru bozu rhyme asks the doll to bring good weather or else its head will be chopped off ^^;;

Today, Japanese children are accustomed to hanging teru-teru bozu whenever they are to go on school trips. I think the name fits the purpose of an online journal. And it sound cute, too. :D
