Hour 28: Pocari Sweat powder is running out. It's all I drink normally and it's made the boiled gray water taste tolerable. We've been scooping our water out of the toilet tanks in the men's room. I had trouble adjusting to washiki squat toilets when I first relocated to Japan, now I actually love them of course, but I decided to outfit our headquarters with Western-style toilets for visitors from our San Diego office. Speaking of Pocari Sweat, you may think it contains actual sweat, but it's really just chemicals designed to replenish nutrients. Think Gatorade, but obviously superior.
Hour 35: Some dolphins followed alongside the building for a day. There is a restaurant called Mammal Panic in Shinjuku that serves dolphin and whale sushi. It is very good with a salty and creamy flavor that you don't get in tuna or other fish. This is because the dolphins understand what it means to die and are therefore terrified of dying. Right now I am terrified of announcing our low-low preorder price on our Yuka Yoshino 1/7 Cast Off Figure. Yuka is from the manga Tsundero by Takeda Hiromitso and she comes in a tiny micro-bikini that you can just see through. This hand painted figure is very realistic and comes with cast off clothing to allow you to appreciate Yuka's sensitive areas. I assume these will arrive at our distribution center well outside the tsunami zone.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
