When in doubt

As a librarian, I have a world of information constantly at my ready, and as with most jobs, there are some recurring tasks. My “tasks” often come in the form of patrons’ questions that I answer to the best of my ability. People have remarked that I have an amazing recall for information (it all has to do with location and the Dewey decimal system!), but even I can slip-up—which is one reason that I “look it up” whenever I’m not completely certain.

I was wondering last night where my sister might have gotten that wink and expression in the last picture of the previous post? It looks very anime in style, and I remembered that my sister is a longtime fan of the art book for the Japanese comic books, or manga, for Marmalade Boy.

Anyway, here are the findings of my research:





Was the winking girl illustration a direct inspiration for Autumn? We might never know…

A crepe and a wink may be all anyone ever needs to be happy in this cruel world.

Autumn got this one perfect, the outfit, the tie, the hair, the wink, and of course the red telephone booth and if you just look at the picture it is not hard to hear the cheerful peppy music. Its adorable!

Cafe Observer: Thanks!

lifeinoleg: It's very possible...

Rose: Thank you! I always feel more cheerful when I look at these pictures of Autumn! And, don't you just love The Bird and the Bee song?

Vash: We thought of you when we made these "Tokyo style" posts!
