Two items of note to report.

One: One of my current colleagues, a beautiful mum-to-be, has a phone, and its ring tone is a familiar one – a baby singing a sweet sweet song (with lyrics such as “gumdrop”, “sweetie pie” and “apple of my eye”). The colleague whom I used to sit next to had a phone with the same ring tone.

Two: Bought a Le Couple CD. Le Couple is a Japanese duo, with a guy plucking guitar heartstrings and Emi Fujita singing like a Celtic goddess (not that I’d know what a Celtic goddess sounds like). For a couple of samples of what she does sound like, have a listen to

  • Le Couple performing perhaps the song they’re best known for, “Hidamari no Uta” (ひだまりの詩 ), from the popular Japanese dorama “Under the Same Roof” (ひとつ屋根の下)

Here are the lyrics to “Once in a Very Blue Moon”:

I found your letter in my mailbox today
You were just checking if I was okay
And if I miss you, well you know what they say
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon

No need to ask me if we can be friends
And help me right back on my feet again
And if I miss you, well just now and then
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon

There’s a blue moon shining
When I am reminded of all we’ve been through
Such a blue moon shining
Does it ever shine down on you?

You act as if it doesn’t hurt you at all
Like I’m the only one who’s getting up from a fall
Don’t you remember now don’t you recall
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon
Just once in a very blue moon
