Q1. If you finish work early, will you…
hang out outside? (3) – Aiba, Jun, Sho
go home straight? (2) – Nino, Ohno
Aiba: If I don’t feel well, I’ll go straight home. But if I’m not tired, I’ll meet up with my friends. But sometimes it’s hard to get hold of friends at the last minute. At times like that, I’ll borrow DVDs to watch at home.
Jun: If I finish work early, I’ll usually go somewhere. Shopping or watch a movie… Sometimes I go alone, sometimes I go with my friends.
Sho: If I finish work early, it’ll be a waste to go straight home! I’ll definitely hang out. I’ll ask my friends out for a meal etc. If my work ends in the evening, I go buy CDs, clothes & etc. If I don’t do so, I usually don’t get the chance to shop.
Nino: I’ll go straight home without hanging out anywhere. There isn’t any particular place I want to go to, so I’ll go straight home after work. Sometimes I eat with my friends, but not anymore recently because I’ve been so busy. I practise card magic tricks at home. (laughs)
Ohno: I’ll not hang out anywhere, go straight home & prepare to go fishing! Because I want to go fishing quicky, if work ends early, I’ll go home straight. (laughs)
Q2. After you reach home, do you…
stay in your outside clothes for a while? (2) – Jun, Ohno
change immediately? (2) – Aiba, Sho
depends (1) – Nino
Jun: If I wear tight-fitting clothes, I’ll change since it’s uncomfortable. But I rarely wear them anyway. If it’s denim or casual clothes, I’ll just stay in them & not change.
Ohno: I’ll take of my pants & socks, leave my shirt alone. So it’s just t-shirt & underpants. (laughs) You can relax like that ne. But if it’s just underpants, it gets cold sometimes. So if I can’t take it, I’ll wear shorts.
Nino: If I perspire, I’ll change. If not, I don’t change. The clothes I change to also varies from day to day.
Aiba: Mostly, I’ll change. I have various types of shorts suitable for all seasons. As for the top, it depends on the season, it can be t-shirts or sweat shirts.
Sho: I’ll change immediately when I reach home. I wear shorts used for basketball & t-shirts. I brought these along with me when I went to Beijing. Somehow, I can’t get use to the hotel’s bathrobes there.
Q3. When you eat at home, do you…
eat slowly & enjoy the food? (1) – Sho
eat quickly & get done with it? (4) – Aiba, Jun, Ohno, Nino
Sho: Right before I went to Beijing, I had dinner with my Dad, just the two of us. We talk, ate & drink for about 2 hours. And, my Dad cooked the shabu-shabu for me.
Aiba: I seldom eat at home, but when I do, I eat quickly. Sometimes when I feel like cooking, then I’ll cook instant noodles & add lots of ingredients. And I finish it quickly.
Jun: If I eat at home, it’s fast. Sometimes I cook myself. Recently I made hiyashi chuka (cold noodles). Simple soy sauce flavour.
Nino: For me, I don’t take eating as something enjoyable. (bitter laugh) After all eating is just required to replenish energy, so I eat fast.
Ohno: I enjoy eating so I want to eat slowly but… I am always hungry, so I end up gobbling up the food. (laughs) Recently, I have been eating in my room while watching my favourite fishing channel.
Q4. When you are lazing around at home, do you prefer to…
watch TV? (3) – Aiba, Nino, Ohno
listen to music? (2) – Jun, Sho
Aiba: It is my habit to switch on the TV when I get home. And in the morning when I am preparing to go out, music is a must. The choice of songs depends on the weather that day. My mood changes depending on whether it’s sunny or rainy.
Nino: Whatever the TV is showing, I’ll somehow feel like watching it. Just a while ago, I watched Olympics very often. I prefer watching sports & I watch baseball & soccer.
Ohno: Now, I earnestly/ only watch fishing channel. Because I keep watching it, sometimes I feel “I have seen this scene before”. But I won’t get sick of it & I’ll still watch it. (laughs)
Jun: When I want to be at ease, it’s music. When I want to relax, it’s TV. They may sound the same, but it’s different to me. (laughs) As for what genre of music, that depends on my mood.
Sho: Basically I listen to music using my PC. As for TV, I check Arashi’s shows. And usually when I get home, there is only late-night programmes to watch anyway. In Beijing’s hotel, I didn’t get to switch on the TV at all.
Q5. When you want to contact your friends from home, you belong to the…
text message type? (2) – Ohno, Sho
phonecall type? (1) – Aiba
both (2) – Jun, Nino
Ohno: I text message more. I usually don’t make phone calls. I use alot of emoticons. I feel weird if I don’t add something else in place of the full-stop.
Sho: A mail is less troublesome/ bothersome . I don’t mind writing long mails but I don’t really use emoticons. Actually, since I change my handphone model, I still haven’t really memorise how to use the phone yet. (bitter laugh)
Jun: It depends on who I am contacting. If it’s someone I am familiar with, I’ll call. If it’s someone whom I don’t usually contact, I don’t know when is the right time to call, so I’ll text.
Nino: It depends whether the person calls me or text me. I’ll return a call with a call, a text message with a text message. I don’t really contact people myself so it all depends on the person contacting me.
Aiba: I belong to the phone call type since long ago. A call is better. Even if I know the person can’t pick up, I think “I can just leave a voice message” & I’ll just call. (laughs)
Q6. When bathing, do you prefer…
taking shower? (3) Jun, Nino, Ohno
soaking in bathtub? (2) Aiba, Sho
Jun: I take showers more often. When I want to bathe, I want to bathe immediately. So it’s troublesome if I still have to prepare the hot water for the bathtub. And I shower quite fast. I am not the type that takes bathing time to relax.
Nino: If I don’t have much work the next day, sometimes I soak in the bathtub, but most of the time I take showers. I want to get to sleep faster rather than take my time bathing.
Ohno: Shower. Takes about 5 minutes. I’ll feel dizzy if I soak in warm water & I’ll get up immediately. So I don’t really like hot springs either. Even in winter, I take showers. it’s good I can tolerate the cold. (laughs)
Aiba: I bathe for about 10 minutes. I like a warm bath. The time I soak in the bathtub is really short, like a crow soaking itself in water, but I still want to soak in a bathtub.
Sho: If I travel, I take showers. But at home, It’s definiely the bathtub. My relax pose is to soak my whole body in warm water, with just my face floating on the surface & I’ll go “Aa~”. It reminds me when I am in my mother’s womb? (laughs)
Q7. Do you do train/ excercise at home?
Yes. (2) – Aiba, Ohno
No. (3) – Jun, Nino, Sho
Aiba: Sometimes I go jogging after I reach home. I started doing so when I was running with Edo Harumi-san in 24H TV. It feels good to run at night.
Ohno: I do 50 sit-ups & 50 push-ups. It may seem tough to exercise on a daily routine but if its just that, I finish it in about 2 minutes. Though I do it at night sometimes, I train more often in the mornings.
Jun: It depends on my work. In 24H TV, I acted as a sick person whose body cannot move, if that’s the case, I don’t feel like training. But if I’m acting as a strong character, I’ll train.
Nino: Till now, I’ve never thought of training. I don’t think it’s necessary & I don’t intend to do it in the future either. (laughs)
Sho: I’m the type that build muscles easily if I train. If I train & I don’t do it continuously, the muscles will become fats. So I decided not to train. (laughs)
Q8. When you sleep, do you…
switch off all the lights? (5) – Erm, all 5…
leave some lights on? (0)
Aiba: I switch off all the lights but I’ll open the curtains to let light come in from the outside. I use blackout curtains so my room becomes totally dark. If I l close the curtains, I wouldn’t know if it’s morning already. And I listen to the radio before I sleep, so I can remember the night radio programme schedule pretty well.
Jun: I can sleep with the lights on, but it’s a waste to leave them on. It’s better not to waste unecessary electricity & be kind to he earth.
Nino: It’s a waste if you don’t switch off the lights when you sleep. I don’t mind if the room is bright or the bed is uncomfortable or anything. I can sleep anywhere. So when I share a hotel room with someone, I can accomodate my roommate.
Ohno: I usually switch off the lights, but recently, because I have been really busy, I fall asleep without switching off the TV. Yesterday, it was showing “Terminator 3” & I wanted to watch it. But I fell asleep the minute it started so I didn’t get to watch at all. (bitter laugh)
Sho: I used to switch on the reading lamp in the past, but now I sleep without it. In Beijing, because I stayed in a hotel near the stadium, the olympic flame helped light up my room. (laughs)
