IN 1881, there was a maid of the name of Sode employed at the house of the Negishis in Matsuye City. She was in the habit of throwing away the remnants of dinner outside the kitchen for stray cats and foxes.
However in winter on a cold evening, when the ground was covered with snow, she would sometimes neglect to treat them to the leavings.
There was a fox who often came for the leavings. This one would call the name of the maid, Sode, when she failed to feed it of a snowy night:
"So-de-san!" (san: a title of courtesy suffixed to the name of a person.)
It was revealed that the fox was producing the sound of "So-de-san" by the following process:
The fox, as observed by the members of the family, would make a big snowball with the tips of its paws. It would carry the snowball to the door of the kitchen, standing on its hind legs. It would lie down on the ground on its back, holding the snowbaIl in its paws. Then it would move the snowball to the tips of the h

The Fox and the Branches of a Big TreeThe Fox and the Branches of a Big TreeThe Fox and the Branches of a Big Tree in Personal More Like This
A FOX was taking up his abode under a big tree. One day a terrible storm rose and some branches of the big tree were broken and fell and hit the fox on the back.
"Ouch!" cried the fox and looked up at the big tree reproachfully once--just once, and then he left the place without even once looking backward over his shoulder out of disdain. He was disgusted with the big tree. Then he came to a wide field.
In a short time, night began to fall. However he did not want to go back to his former abode. He felt very lonesome, however.
Now he looked back toward the big tree standing high in the heavens. He looked at the tree with a
longing eye this time Then he noticed that the branches of the tree were beckoning him, swaying to and fro.
"Come back, Fox-come back!" the fox thought they were calling aloud, swinging back and forth.
"After all," said the fox to himself, "the branches of the tree were not responsible for striking me on the back. It was the sto

SHOJI, a villager of Kawai in Iwaki Province, Was once attacked by a fox, and the food carried by him in a jubako* was skillfully taken away by the animal. In this case, however, the fox did not resort to its usual method, bewitchery. It simply depended on a psychological means: Intimidation.
Shoji was on his way home at night, from his relative's house where a banquet had been given in celebration of an auspicious event. He was taking with him a jubako full of nice things to eat wrapped up in a furoshiki (a large wrapping cloth).
Shoji fastened both ends of the furoshiki tightly around his neck and he thought that he would never lose the gift given at his relative's. He was afraid of Kitsune.
He was obviously under the influence of sake taken at the relative's house. And, to say that he was plucky would be far from the truth. However in such a condition that evening, he thought he was not a coward even when he was to pass the foot of W

AN EXPERT hunter named Mambei in Iwaki Province bagged a fox one day. It was a female fox. He shot it in a mountain far from the haunts of men.
He was sure that its mate, the male fox, would come that night to retrieve the female fox's body. He wanted to kill the male, too. So the hunter waited for the fox, after sending the other members of the family to bed. He put out the light and he sat behind a paper sliding-door, placing his gun at his elbow.
There was a swift stream running at the back of his house. A branch dike of the stream was connected with the hunter's garden from the upper stretch of water. The fox was supposed to come along this dike.
The moon was bright on that particular night.
The fox did come, as expected, at about 9 o'clock. It got on the veranda stealthily, and it was trying to peep into the house, coming close to a paper sliding-door. The moonshine threw the outline of the fox's figure on the paper sliding-door. It was an easy mark f

If you were a moderator you'd probably abuse your rights and ban whoever proves you wrong left front and center. All you can do is sit there and blubber occasionally crying out for moderators help because there is literally nothing you can do otherwise. Reporting users to moderators after you've blocked them is as far as your "kicking asses" goes, limited to a verbal extent, making you nothing but a bag of hot air.

Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

"It’s rant time again. Yay. I know I’ve talked about this topic in the past already but it’s still current for many artists, and I’d like to go into it a little further. That question which pretty much every artist knows only too well.
“Can you draw something for me? But I don’t have money.”
No matter how obvious you make it that you’re a professional artist, how eye-catching the commission pricelist on your user page is or how many “I don’t do requests / art-trades”-stamps you plaster all over your journal, people either don’t notice or simply don’t care.

Anyway, I've been seeing a lot of celebs and other "famous" people suddenly announcing to the public that they have Asperger's Syndrome.
I've seen about three of these in the past week alone; not even going to try and count the number I saw in the past month.
I actually get annoyed when I see those stories. You know why?
Because Asperger's is the new ADD, so it's apparently "cool" to have it.
It's NOT cool. I make light of it as much as I can in AuTalkz, but there are a LOT of frustrating things that come with it. Also, if they're just being diagnosed for the social aspect, it's not Asperger's. I really can't stand when shy/introverted people are presumed to have Asperger's; there's a lot that comes with it besides that.
But it's like these celebs are "coming out of the closet" or something. Now that it's "cool", and everyone seems to be getting
