The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

Move the tv into the sewing room. Or move the machine out to the living room. :p

And I know what you mean....the kids were doing a weekly scripture/music class that another mama took them to, and I all of a sudden had this whole 6 hour block of time open(they made an event of it...went early to avoid traffic, and the kids would playl then the class, then dinner, then more playing, then home. They LOVE it!). I didn't know what to do with myself!!! lol
