One of the things I love most about Tokyo: the plethora of vending machines
Done writing the last of my articles for 2011. Now I can relax and pretend it’s December 23 again.
Re-ripped these to get higher quality tracks. I will never part with these CDs. Never.
My nephew just told me this: “I’ll show you how to pin tab your Google Chrome. Uhm, why is your computer so slow?”
Omg. I cried. They grow up so fast! Just a few weeks ago I taught him basic Photoshop.
Up until I was 12, almost everything I owned was either monogrammed or engraved, including a lifetime supply of personalised notecards I got when I was 5. My parents grew up the same way, and so did my maternal grandparents, aunts and uncles, I think. Being preppy was inescapable.

Some things my closest grade school and middle school friends associate me with:
- my nanny
- lunch by the swimming pool
- straight As
Some things my closest high school friends associate me with:
- Yohji Yamamoto
- English honors
- French club
- my map of Greece

It’s nice to be wanted though.
I bought tortilla chips from a food service supplier and I was surprised at how huge the bags are. (The magazine is there for comparison.) They’re jalapeño flavored, by the way.
- Gino Bambino - given by my friends Neil, Dave and Mike while I was living in Calgary
- Fuzz, Fozz, other mutations - high school, invented by my classmates Jay, Derrick and Ryan
- Osaka - while I was backpacking across Israel and other parts of the Middle East, I noticed that shopkeepers in the souks would yell “Osaka, come here!” to get my attention. In hindsight it seems a bit racist lol
What other names do you go by?
I’m finally catching up with Supernatural and I just realized how much I’ve missed this show. I just also realized how badly I want to be a Winchester. I mean, I could be their half-Japanese youngest brother who speaks fluent Spanish and is well-versed in memes, world affairs and the ins and outs of music piracy. But instead of plaid and work boots, my ghostbusting ninja will wear stripes and Doc Martens.
Eric Kripke, I hope you get to read this.
