We've made it through the tsunami and earthquake. Everyone is alive here at J-List HQ, but please pray for the rest of Japan. Not everything is fine for us. The building has been pulled off its foundation and we are floating out to sea. The Sea of Japan or Nihonkai is high in dissolved oxygen which has made it a fertile fishing ground for thousands of years.
Thankfully, we have a large stock of supplies and can wait for rescue in the comfort of our office. I've been enjoying Shinryaku! Ika Musume manga volume one to the sound of the waves against the walls. It's the story of a cute moe-type squid girl who vows to conquer humanity for polluting the ocean. It is pretty polluted right now, lots of cars and shipping containers and pieces of houses. I hope Ika Masume isn't too mad!
Hour 10: It feels like late night at Akihabara here in the office. Everyone is cosplaying as Moe Cafe Maids and wearing Momoeri Romantic Panties from G-Magic. Nobody has showered since the tsunami, but we've made nosegays out of extra panties rubbed with the gel we scraped out of an air freshener cartridge. Japan's Drop Candy boom has left us with plenty of drop foods to eat. Right now we're enjoying the Akihabara limited flavor - sort of a strawberry flavor - but I think I need something savory so I may go with Spaghetti or Tacos. Sakuma Drops have been around since the 1930s and were made famous by the animated film Grave of the Fireflies.

The Amazonians value combat prowess and purity of spirit. By wrestling half naked, they pay homage to both virtues by displaying their battle-forged bodies while preserving as much modesty as their society deems necessary. The gelatin in which they wrestle is symbolic of the fluid nature of battle, a concept the Amazonians call ‘akgor-gra.’
