Mornings…

The view outside of KC’s window at 6:30 am. The deep countryside looks so quaint, so cute, huh? You can see the bright sun, the chirping birds (well, the deathsquawks of marauding crows, but whatever), the farmers trucks as they set up for the morning market…
…. and then you pan over to the left and see what appears to be the impending apocalypse bearing down on you bringing the fury and rage of the oceans from just over the other side of the mountains. *gulp* It’s times like these that I wish Japanese apartments weren’t made of paper and wood…

Panda obsessed…

That having been said, when there’s cute pandas at stake, sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. So after asking/guilting/forcing my friends and/or co-workers to assist me in my great undertaking, I started making the rounds at the stores and in the end, when all was said and done, I ended up buying some 40+ bottles of namacha.
Yeah. 40 bottles.

Sunny Road Trip!

On the way back we passed by this random 35 foot tall statue of a Tyrannosaurs Rex growling fearsomely at a curve in the road, apparently as an enticement to come visit the nearby dinosaur museum. What is mildly amusing about this picture is the sign beneath the T-Rex’s feet. It reads:
“Are you driving safely?”
And all I could think was “No, man, a goddamn dinosaur that just scared the shit out of me when I rounded the blind curve here! What do you expect!!?”
