"Dear Yumi, do you like cats?"
I do like cats, I like when they're snobby. My friend has a cat, and it always cracks me up when her cat acts like he's too cool to hang out with her. She'll call his name and he'll just wander under the couch like "Sorry, going under the couch now. You can try to join me or whatever, but it's pretty exclusive under here. You're probably not on the guest list."
Curious Kitty Asks:
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
A pop idol or a dolphin. (okay, that was my answer from when I was five. But now, I'm not so sure. I'll have to keep thinking about that one. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ)
"Have you ever thought of opening your own fashion store?"
You know it! My friends and I are working on our collections this year and when we're all done we're going to see if we can find anyone to help us open a store. It's a big deal, and it takes a lot of work, and a lot of money, but I think we can do it. We're already fighting about what it should be called ^_^
"If you had to pick only one thing to wear for the rest of your life what would it be?"
Probably jeans and a shirt that says "I am so sorry about how dirty my clothes are." ^^
"Are any of your designs inspired by anime characters?"
Of course! I think my designs are inspired by everything I see every single day. When I'm out for a walk I think I must be collecting ideas. And when I'm at home later I can remember all of the things I saw and think "What if I made a bag that looked like a retro version of one of the posters near the noodle place?" And then I try it.
"What the weirdest food combination you ever ate and liked?"
I'd have to say chocolate and bacon. Oh! I also had a grilled chocolate sandwich once. That one broke all of the sandwich rules, but for all the right reasons! Oh and pizza with hard boiled egg on it. Also, I had blue cheese ice cream once. That was a mistake though. A terrible mistake.
"Dear Yumi, what do you think of ferrets?"
I think that they are surprisingly long.
"What is bento anyways?"
I can't believe I didn't mention this earlier! It's a box lunch, but it's made to be portable and cute, and stylish, and super tasty, and...you know what, you should just stop by the expo center and I'll show you! And we'll be talking about bento on the blog soon!
"Dear Yumi, which planet of the solar system do you most closely identify with?"
Pluto. Because sometimes people tell me that I can't do something (like when people told Pluto that it couldn't be a planet any more.) but I don't let that stop me! (and anyway! What's so great about Venus anyway?! "I'm the hottest planet, blah blah blah." It doesn't even have a moon. That's embarrassing, Venus. Pluto is just as good as you! But because it's off doing its own thing, and not hanging around with the cool planets no one takes it seriously.) Wow, I guess I have some pretty complex emotions about the planets. That is surprising.
"Do you match your socks?"
Good question! I don't have an answer for this, more a general sock philosophy. Sock are like eyebrows. Most of the time they should be doing the same thing, but sometimes, if the occasion calls for it, it's ok to let one sock get a little crazy.
"what is your favorite computer game."
I like puzzle games, and games that make a lot of weird noises when you play them, and mystery games. I like some of the cooking games, but some of them aren't very realistic about how you make food.
"What is your favorite place to go to in Japan?
Shibuya! So much fun!
GREAT QUESTIONS! I HAD FUN! I'm getting ready to go out and have some weekend times with friends Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
and I'm going to be working at the stand this weekend so I probably won't be able to answer questions until monday (but I might!)
It's Update Time! New Week, New Answers!
Would you like to take a trip to Paris, France? (P.S I luv your clothes!)
Thanks! I would *love* to go to Paris – especially on fashion week!
If you had to pick between blue and red which would you pick?
No question about it. Blue. And then also red. Also yellow. (Can I negotiate to get a little green in the mix?) Oh, right – also pink. Which shades are we talking about here?
Do you like sushi? If so what kind is your favorite?
Sushi is pretty good, but noodles! Noodles are the business. I just had some ten minutes ago, and…If I could travel back in to before I ate the noodles, I would. I guess I could also travel forward in time to the next time it’s time for noodles. Or, I guess I could just wait until the next noodle time.
Have you ever seen a ghost?
I don’t think so.
Do you have any enemies?
I’ve never thought about it before. Hmm. I don’t think so. If I do they’re not very good at being my enemies, I guess, since I don’t know if they exist or not. Bad job, potential enemies. :D
You is the best
Thanks Anonymous! (I like you more than the other anonymice :D)((Just kidding)(((not really ^^)))
Why don't you live in the ryokan with your family?
I like being a train ride away from home. That way I’ve always got a fifteen minute head start. Also, I *love* living in the city.
“How do you feel about elephants?”
I feel cautiously optimistic about elephants.
Do you have any phobias?
Pa Penny Asks:
Have you ever heard of a certain teenage girl from America named Nancy Drew? And have you ever heard of an individual named John Grey?
Does this John Grey run a website about ghost hunting? Is her super annoying? Does he bother people about contributing to his website even when you tell him you’re not interested? Does he post your pictures without asking your permission? If yes, then – yes. I know him. Unfortunately. Nancy Drew, I’m not sure if I’ve met her.
What is your favorite movie?
Hmm, that one is hard. I like a lot of American movies, except for action and those movies where a bunch of sad stuff happens to everyone for no reason, and then it just ends suddenly. Oh, and talking animals, not really a fan of those either – mainly because the animals only say sassy things and not things that they’d really say.
Movie Giraffe “Oh uh-huh you did NOT just go there, Mr. No-Neck.”
Real Giraffe “I like the leaves from the middle of the tree! Oh! It’s time to run now! No wait! False alarm! Turns out it’s still time to stand!”
Does your sister ever help with your Bento stand?
No. She’s always saying that she’s way too busy to come to the city.

"Let's Wacky Super Cheery Bentocalypse to go...Bariuma!"
But think of how many letters I'd have to put on the sign! That's too much responsibility for just one little sign! It' be stressed out all day long! And probably super jealous of signs that just say things like "Stop." or "Sign Store, Next Exit." I can't do that to a poor defenseless sign. It just wouldn't be right.
So I decided to do the next best thing, I'm combining the most popular names into THE NAME FOR MY NEW BLOG AND BENTO STAND.
I present to you -
Let's Happy Bento!
Great job everyone! Thanks for all the advice and help! You guys are super creative, and really good at names! You should all join forces and start a company that names things.
But wait. What would you call that company?
