I've had Sand Chronicles on my list to look up for a while; I'll bump it to the top (especially after ANN's rave review). I read some of the Okazaki scans by SM, though none of them struck me as good as Bathroom Guuwa, which I found here. I liked Hotaru no Nori e, and thought they were solid stories, but wasn't blown away like with Natsume Yuujinchou or The Scarlet Chair.
No thanks, I gave at the office.
(What *is* that on her shirt -- a ptarmigan?)
An o rly owl?
What is your office like? Many men with little daughters?
