Today’s the day Twitter is supposed to introduce the new, downgraded Vine. I’m  going to do one more day where the videos I share are all vines in mourning. Not even sure if all these will post, but I do have a saved backup plan if they all suddenly vanish. Anyway, the Enoshima Aquarium has a huge number of clips like this one of faintly glowing, submarine organisms and they’re all pretty spectacular.

『Marine World !!~ Fukuoka Special Edition~』

During the Obon holiday, I went home to Fukuoka at the same time as my parents (my parents are living in the Kanto area at the moment), we all travelled there to see my grandparents.
Everyone went to visit the family grave in Kumamoto, it takes around 40 minutes from Hakata to Kumamoto via shinkansen, that’s really fast!!

Here we have my grandparents’ little kitty cats. First, Momo-chan (she is really big, isn’t she?) and then there’s Jojo (actually, he is Jojo 2.0). He is a recent addition to the family, so so cute, the last time I saw him I fell madly in love with him. Whereas Momo-chan is all fluffy and affectionate, Jojo is totally tsundere.
