Chocolate truffles, adults and other trifles  
I got a few chocolate truffles from someone, who got them at someone else's birthday party. I looked up the brand, and apparently they were made by a family-owned independent chocolaterie located at a city somewhere to the west. Chance encounter can be a funny thing, even if it's just chocolates.

Watched the first two episodes of Quartet. I like it so far. The characters don't always say what they really mean or think, and they all seem to have a secret or two. The theme song "Otona no Okite" is composed by Shiina Ringo, and it's sung by the actresses and actors who play the main characters in the series. It's a typical Shiina Ringo jazzy song with string accompaniment, and the lyrics is classic Shiina Ringo as well. I'm waiting to see if they'll release the song in full in some form. (ETA: The full version has just been released.)

Speaking of which, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu season 2 has just reached a turning point in its narrative. The opening theme song (once again composed by Shiina Ringo) and the opening sequence haven't been subtle about what will transpire; I like it all the same. It's interesting that the connotation of candles being a representation of life (and a candle being extinguished representing death) exists both in the east and in the west (see Macbeth's "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow" soliloquy).
