Tampopo is a video about the culture of food in Asia, especially ramen. It is made up of several fictional stories and a play on Western movies. For those of you who are looking for a light, funny movie with deeper meaning, Tampopo is a good choice.
No, these aren’t all asian movies. But Totoro is so good I couldn’t not mention it. If you haven’t watched it, you really should. Totoro is a movie for the family; kids can enjoy it too. Other Miyazaki movies are just as good.
Up is another family-friendly movie. It is very sweet and a little sad, with beautiful animation and perspective.
4. Stranger Things Seasons 1 and 2
5. The Office
Jeez, who hasn’t watched The Office? Well, even if you have I recommend rewatching it. Okay, in case you haven’t watched: The Office is about an eccentric boss who permits anything. He runs an office full of weirdos, drama and office romance.
6. The new Star Wars movie
It’s awesome. Go watch it.
8. Hell’s Kitchen
A very dramatic cooking show. Lots of swearing, not for young children. It’s good though.
9. First Dates Restaurant
It’s a reality show about people blind dating who are being filmed on the restaurant’s camera.
10. Raising Hope
It’s a family movie, in that it’s about a family. It’s not family friendly, though. But it’s funny.

I seem to have missed international cat day, which was on August 8th. So here are some cool things you might not know.
1) Cats are perfectly capable of recognizing your voice. They just choose to ignore it. (But you probably already knew that.)
2) You can calm your cat by maintaing eye contact while opening and closing your eyes slowly
3) Owning a cat can reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke by a third.
4) Cats do not respond to punishment
5) You probably grew up with the notion that cats drank warm bowls of milk, but actually most cats are lactose intolerant.
I got a retainer yesterday, as you can probably tell by the title. It hurts! A lot!! 😖
Basically it’s this little metal band on my front teeth, only there’s a lot of plastic on the front and back, for some reason. It makes it difficult to talk. And it’s really painful, especially to put in. If I ever had to torture someone, I think I’d threaten to make them wear a retainer. Or, even worse, make them floss after an hour or two of wearing a retainer. Ouch!
If they’d worn a retainer as a child, their mind would flash back to images of childhood pain. And I’d get whatever info I needed. 😈
Anyway, despite the painful and uncomfortable experience I am trying to RETAIN a sense of calm. (Ha ha) Does anyone have any advice? 😫
Hi, fawns! 🦌 Anna here! This marks my very first post on Blue Fawn Pink Manga. I’m going to be mostly posting about things that have been happening, but here’s a little recap of my summer.
I went to England, where I learnt to skate on these weird skates where you have to kind of lean back to skate.
Our cat Luna ate our hydrangeas and was sick twice. 😿 I am pleased to report that she’s better now. The photo above is her recovery. She is currently starring as a tapir in a movie directed by my sister, Stella the Tapir.
We’ve recently been going to the beach. The other photo is my father, buried in the sand. We dubbed him “Sir Bikini”! 😆 We also gave him a love heart tattoo.
I am dreading going back to school! Summer’s been so fun! 😢😢😢
See you soon!
