Of Pandas, Pears and Home-made Butter…

Okay, it’s hot outside and I’m lazy, so let’s try something new here and go with the first ever panda videoblog – a rambling, laconic dissertation about pears, supermarkets and making your own butter at home (in case you ever wanted to).

Another Week…

So, once again, another hot, humid summer week with nothing special to blog about except the rather exceptional fact that I am still alive. Exceptional, that is, because I am half panda and there are few things pandas dislike more than hot, humid, soul crushing Japanese summers. Ugh. You’d think that after 5+ years I’d be used to it. You’d be wrong. Jesus god, what have I done to deserve being baked alive everytime I leave the sanctuary of my air conditioned bedroom? It’s gotten so bad I now refuse to use the bathroom except when I absolutely have to – preferring to hold it rather than step into the smelting furnace that is my windowless restroom. (sexy, right?)
