hasui hirakawa morning

(no subject)

Does anyone else do this? For the last few days I was reading a short story collection where Sherlock Holmes solves real murders of the time- Drs. Crippen and Cream and the brides in the bath etc. Yesterday I was playing with Hasui prints online, making icons (oh the fun of running the masters through Photoshop) when I wasn't scanning bits of Hana to Ryuu and putting the translation together. The result is the most appalling mental soup, with me wandering about thinking in the back of my mind that I've been away somewhere where people were dealing with yakuza crimes back in early Taishou. (Hasui was actually Shouwa, but hell--) No, that was just something you read. Now I'm reading a manga set in unspecified medieval Japan; I wonder how that will go with the curry I made today?
