    ====================
    まだ少しだけ先ですが、10代の頃からお世話になっているメイクさん&スタイリストさんにお誕生日をお祝いしてもらいました。美味しかった〜嬉しかった〜 しゃけはいつのまにか私の帽子に入ってて可愛かったです。 今日もお酒を飲みませんでした(333日目)
    -----------------------------------
    It's only a little while ago, but I asked Make-up and Stylist, who have been taking care of me since I was a teenager, to celebrate my birthday. It was delicious ~ I was happy ~ The salmon was cute in my hat before I knew it. I didn't drink alcohol today (Day 333)
    -----------------------------------

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    somehow seeing how happy Miichan is with Salmon makes me happy as well

    btw ... it's probably not to late to send Miichan your birthday wish

    hmm... is it me? .... it's 33 days to 8 December ... but 333 + 33 = 366 ... and I must be mistaken ... but a year has 356 or 357 days ... right?

    Nope, a year has 365 days (366 in a year where February has 29 days, like it did in 2020).

    Wait a minute...
    I may have given birth to this one, indeed.

    Aujourd'hui c'est Dimanche ....Vidéo de Miichan á YouTube :)
    (ow my highschool French is rusty to say the least)

    I wonder if Miichan realizes her shirt just says Sunday or if it's deliberate :)



    anyway ... Miichan's Birthday is just a few days away, and I heard the word Keekii ... so, are to going to bake a cake?
    (ok, the thumbnails spoils that surprise ;) )


    Minegishi Minami celebrates her 28th birthday next week on the 15th.
    I'm a hassle to admit to myself and others. There are too many things I don't know, have never done, try to know, and have never tried to do. The reason why I've been able to live up to this point in my life is because I received help from many people at the time.
    But when I tell my friends about it, they say, "That's your talent too, isn't it, Miichan? I've had people say to me, "It's a relief to be able to do that. In my 28th year of life, I will not sit idly by and say, "Well, it's all part of my talent," but rather, I will try to be more patient and help people who have helped me so far, and aim to be independent enough to make the people around me and my fans feel at ease.

    Once again, Waka-chan, thank you for everything!

    the complete concentration at 9:31 :)

    I've just been looking at the schedule for the online replacement HS events for 'Shitsuren, Arigato' and there's a page which shows the dates of the last ones for members who have announced their graduation:
    https://akb.kingrecords.co.jp/57th-online-post-one.html
    Unlike the others whose last dates are all this year, Miichan's isn't until 2/11 next year so it does like she'll be around for a while yet! :)

    I think it's save to assume Miichan will still be in AKB on 8 december, for the 15th AKB theatre anniversary ... I'm pretty sure that is not what she planned

    But I'm glad to see how happy and content she is lately, let's hope for a good graduation concert when the situation allows it and then have her rediscover her variety skills


    (but I'm still not looking forward to having to move her thread to the graduated members sub-forum ...)

    new article by Miichan
    https://mirror.asahi.com/article/13925099
    Minami Minegishi: "On the way home from her cat's vaccination. I couldn't stop crying on the way home from vaccinating my cat.

    Minegishi Minami
    2020/11/13
    My relationship with my mother.

    Minegishi Minami, the last member of AKB48, has been an idol for 14 years. Her graduation has been postponed due to the effects of the new model of corona, and she has debuted as a columnist in Kagayo Kagami! Looking back on her days as an idol, she says, "I've lived my life by being praised by others as my motivation," and faces her "homework.
    Minegishi Minami's "If possible, I want to be praised again tomorrow.

    I've longed to live with pets for a long time.

    However, it was impossible for me, who was drinking four times a week at most, and I had given up on the idea that a person who couldn't even take care of himself would ever be able to raise an animal. When I started to get sober and started to live a reasonably human life, an opportunity to interact with a cat at a friend's house came together, and I was fascinated by the balanced loveliness of the cat, which usually lived on its own and occasionally rubbed up against me. Suddenly turned on, I spent the night looking for my ideal kitty on the breeder's website, and tests confirmed that her allergies, which had been so bad in the past, weren't as severe as they could be. In the end, we fell in love at first sight with one of the kittens sent to us by Kojima Haruna, with its color, face, and appearance that could be described as ideal, and we were ready to live with him.

    On October 10, 2020, a kitten arrived at the home of Minami Minegishi, the "bad girl" who, nine years ago, got angry and got into a fight with former member Minami Takahashi because she got a cat without consulting me, who was allergic to cats.

    ==I named the overly cute creature "Shakechazuke Chazuke".

    I named her Shakechazuke, with her bright pink nose and mouth and her beautiful beige fluffy fur, and we started living together for the first time. We would wake up in the morning, feed her, clean up her poop, go to work with no regrets, play together when we got home, and sleep in bed together at night. The presence of these cute but overly cute creatures who couldn't live without me corrected and enriched the rhythm of my life.


    Shakeh when we first met.
    The first time I met her, she was a little shameless. It was love at first sight.
    My friends started coming over to my house to hang out with me more often, and I wondered if my life would have been different if I had realized the beauty of this life earlier. Well, I wouldn't have been able to realize this without those drinking days.

    ==Vaccine day. As a mother, I was thrilled from the night before

    Today was my second vaccine day since she was born; the first one had been completed by the breeder before we picked her up, so it was my first vaccine day as a mother. The night before, I had been nervous about my precious little one being in pain, and what I would do if she got out of control in the hospital. I came home after work, put Shaké in my carry-on bag, and took a taxi. As he scurried around and occasionally meowed in a faint voice, I repeatedly said, "It's okay! I opened the lid of the bag a little and put my hand in it, and he vigorously rubbed his cheek against my hand. My chest hurts from the anxiety I feel and I'm a little glad to feel like I'm being relied upon.

    The doctors at the pet clinic, who were introduced to me by a senior cat owner, were very kind and said, "Shakey-chan is so cute. He's a good boy," and they finished the injection in the blink of an eye, saying, "Shake is so cute. Shakeh didn't scream or yell, he just stared at a single point and behaved himself until the end. He seems to have a strong mental attitude, just like me.

    As I watched Shakeh quietly watching him in the taxi on the way home, I felt a tingle in the back of my nose as I told him he did a great job and to stay healthy.


    Sneeze after vaccination
    Post-vaccination sneeze. 'He behaved himself to the end.

    ==When I thought about living with life, I understood how my mother felt.

    One of the reasons for this is probably because the doctor asked me why I was getting a vaccine shot in my leg. He said that very rarely, a lump can form at the injection site, and if it turns into something like cancer, it could kill you in the worst case. They said that if the area was a leg, amputation could save your life. These shocking words, coming from a teacher with a gentle air, seemed to teach me what it means to live with life.

    The 5:00 p.m. chime made it even more sentimental, and I was crying myself to sleep. It didn't take long to realize that it was my mother's feelings for Shake, and that they were tears for her feelings for me in the same way, or perhaps even more so.

    ==I don't know how many times I've given my mother a hard time.

    "You take care of yourself."
    It reminds me of something I've heard my mother say so many times before, in a casual way. I wish her well, and that she would be happy every day and not be sad. I don't want anything in return, I just want that for her. When I think about it, how many times have I given my mother a hard time?

    When I broke down my body, when she watched me suffer through my AKB activities, and when I shaved my head: ......

    Eight years ago that day, eight years ago, after I called her with the news that I was going to be featured in a weekly magazine, my mother became terrified of my unexpected phone calls. When I called her to do a quick errand, she said, "...... what? What's going on again? She asks me in a serious voice.


    I'm not a very good parent to make her feel that way because of a phone call from her distant daughter, who is supposed to be happy.

    == What I can do now for my mother, the "unfilial" one, to make her feel that way

    A mother who watched the broadcast of Girls Mental and cried instead of laughing. This column was the only one that said, "Are you sure you're a momma's girl? How many more times can I make my mother happy while she's still healthy, when she compliments me on my writing by saying, "I'm not sure how many more times I'll be able to make her happy.

    If possible, I'd like to see her do a lot of work on TV. For example, if I could appear in a commercial, star in a play, or become rich, I might be able to make my mother smile. Even if none of those things happen, just take care of your body and show up at your parents' house once in a while. Now that I'm no longer able to see them casually in Corona, I'll call them a lot. I hope that I can paint my phone calls as a happy memory.

    [​IMG]

    I can see why Miichan would get in a fight with Takamina over Takamina getting a cat, as it would basically mean Miichan would not be able to stay over anymore.
    It confirms Miichan's allergy though (and that she seems to have grown over it (or maybe uses medication))

    I know how hard it is for people who love cats but are allergic to them

    btw, whenever I see Miichan's parents in a program it's obvious they are very proud of her, no matter what

    I was watching AKBingo Ep 91 - The generation gap quiz
    and Sata reveals why Takamina was chosen, as every body knows it was allegedly because her height and birthday both hand 48 in them ....
    but I noticed that the next line on the board mentions Miichan (I'm getting pretty good at recognising the kanji for her name ;))
    I guess that was left on the cutting room floor as Miichan wasn't present on that moment so I think there wasn't really a reaction

    but allegedly it was because she shares her birthday with Togasaki-san

    just a bit of useless trivia

    btw ... as we all know TGK had a vicious fall from grace and the last I read some news about him he was selling bento outside a JR station somewhere in Tokyo.
    but, I took a look at his twitter today, it seems he's still running a bento business but he also mentioned he was a judge at the Mrs. Earth Japan Aichi pageant ...
    So maybe he is doing better now, whatever way you look at it, he is sort of a first gen as well

    AKB48-Manager-Tomonobu-Togasaki-Hit-With-Allegations-of-Drug-Use.jpg

    Former AKB48 Theater manager Togasaki Tomonobu has announced that he will leave AKB48 at the end of August 2018, ending his 13-year career with AKB48 group. According to Togasaki Tomonobu's Twitter, his contract with AKB48 Customer Center will not be extended.

    Togasaki Tomonobu had been AKB48 manager since the formation of the idol group, and then became all AKB48 group Theater Manager in 2013, however he was demoted after scandal, and he was transferred. to Head of AKB48 Customer Center in 2014 (AKB48 Group Daisokaku Matsuri).

    https://jshowbiz.com/english/news/a...monobu-will-leave-akb48-at-end-of-august.html

    I have to admit there was nothing more exciting than his appearance from behind the curtain above the stage at a concert. There was always a nervous mummer in the audience and among the members, just waiting for the ax to fall, whether a shuffle, promotion, agency transfer, etc.

    he was caught using smoking some synthetic drugs iirc ..... and in Japan (and most of Asia) all kind of drugs are still highly illegal (even more so than in most western countries)
    Ow, and meeting up with a 19 year old woman in a hotel did not help his public image of course as well

    in a blog post just before he finally left AKS he wrote about loosing his second daughter two months after she was born 6 months earlier
    so I can understand it if he was in quite a bad place at that time
    https://ameblo.jp/togachan1115/page-13.html

    edit: synthetics drugs meaning, some weeds mixed with controlled substances, so it might be the level of hash or something much harder

    Looking at that last pic, don't you think Miichan looks more relaxed and happier lately?
    I'm not saying she was unhappy before ... but she looks like she has no care in the world nowadays, even when she is writing articles about her troubles and worries
