Today was Johnny's Mail Day at my house.  My anniversary present came: it's smaller than I thought but so cute.  Tickets also came!!  We're on the 3rd baseline and pretty near the back of the dome, but we're halfway up the front block.  It's going to be great!

The guy who killed that Nova teacher 2 years ago is on the news again.  They are saying he's changed his look so many times which is why he hasn't been caught yet.  He's had (or is going to have) surgery so that's making it hard.  I wonder if that's the whole reason.

Anyway!

Oh Jun. You are so special sometimes.

Enjoy the concert. So lucky you got such good seats! (I looked through the entire site and saw nothing about new seats, so you'll have to experience it for me.)

I wonder if that puzzle he finished was the Dragon Quest one for Nino? I'd hope so <3

#21 and #22 are hilarious. XD I don't know what you call it in English or Japanese, but in Tagalog, that's what we call "pilosopo" XD

I wonder - when they mean rank 1-5, which number means he can wake up easily? is it 5?

On another note, which members haven't had the 100 Qs? I don't really remember.

Thanks so much for translating <3
