We had the annual office christmas party tonight. Unfortunately, I couldn't drink yet again.

Had a nice tapas dinner with a couple of friends and gossiped in one of their rooms afterwards.

Origin of oyuki

People who know me know I like Japanese animation. One of the reasons I like them is because sometimes you see part of yourself being portrayed as a character in a particular anime. Japanese animes (IMHO) are also far more imaginative (and funny) than what Disney can come up with. Not all animations are good, in fact some of them are rather bad. However, here are two of the very best:

Miyazaki Hayao see
He is regarded as the god of anime (including me) by many. His new film "Howl's Moving Castle" is coming out in Japan TODAY (!!!).

Takahashi Rumiko see
She writes mainly manga and many of her series are very well known e.g. Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, Inuyasha. I particularly admire how she designs individual characters and how they interact in the series.

Oyuki is a character from the series Urusei Yatsura (dating back early 80s!), literally meaning "honourable snow". Urusei Yatsura was Takahashi's first bestseller.
