Fuji in Pink


The end of another hectic week.

Did anyone realize that today is Friday the 13th? And can someone else tell me why Jason wears a hockey mask? Was he a former hockey player?

Far from the scary movies based on this day, I'm enjoying the evening and looking forward to this weekend. If you look closely at the photo, you can see an outline of Mt. Fuji. Happy weekend, everyone!

Take a look at different skies all around the world here.

Oops! «Louis» made a mistake in his previous attempt at leaving a comment!

«Louis» hadn't even thought about this being Friday the 13th until J Bar pointed it out.

First, I want to say, “Who is Jason?”

Second, this is from Wikipedia:
“In Friday the 13th Part III (1982), Jason (Richard Brooker) escapes to a nearby lake resort, Higgins Haven, to rest from his wounds. At the same time, Chris Higgins (Dana Kimmell) returns to the property with some friends. An unmasked and reclusive Jason kills anyone who wanders into the barn where he is hiding. Taking a hockey mask from a victim to hide his face, he leaves the barn to kill the rest of the group. Chris fends off Jason by slamming an axe into his head, but the night's events drive her into hysteria as the police take her away.”

I guess you have to see Part III to catch it clearly: something I am not likely to do.

There is something about Mt Fuji that invariably amazes me, like,“Wow. There it is. Right there. Fuji. Wow. The real Fuji. I can see it. There. Really. Wow.” The same feeling I often have here if you replace the word “Fuji” above with “Tokorozawa.” Ha ha.

That twilight atmosphere with the illuminated green shop with angled red lettering makes the scene look like the best kind of pop art. Classic. And with FUJI! Absolutely gorgeous.

I was having a pretty good day till someone reminded me that it's Friday the 13th and I'm supposed to play hockey against my old nemesis Jason this evening.

Thank you for the comments, everyone!

Tall Gary, I heard from a friend that "Jason X," although it's hard to believe they'd continue to have a sequel for so long, is just SO BAD that it is actually GOOD! What do you think? ;D

Ann, yes I do work weekdays! There are many things I do on the weekends, usually out with friends or family :D

B Squared, I'd love to know how that game turned out ;-)

Leif, it is so good to hear from you again! Hope we get to see photos from your trip :D
