Why My Monitor is Lucky

Meme from chris_walsh;

01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.*

It's the zashiki-warashi from xxxHolic.

02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!

Yeah, whatever.

I've been meaning to change it, actually. It was one of the first I downloaded from konachan after the last hard drive format. I've gone back to it a couple times I guess because it's kind of peaceful--it's a good example of CLAMP's art. Also, according to Wikipedia;

It is said that once a zashiki-warashi inhabits a house, it brings the residence great fortune; on the other hand, should a zashiki-warashi depart, the domain soon falls into a steep decline.

Though the Wikipedia entry also says, "The appearance of this spirit is that of a 5 or 6 year child with bobbed hair and a red face." I'm not sure when the collective psyche of anime and manga decided zashiki-warashi were pretty girls.

*I'm not holding anyone to that.
