sigh, here are more badly photographed things that caught my eye whilst i had camera in tow…
Wee ones frolic in our courtyard…from the danchi’s school located on the grounds.
2510 Yen worth of groceries, or about $25USD. Note the delicious bottle of ‘Pocari Sweat’, mmm-MM! (sidebar: my checkout girl saw mold on the bag of apples I brought up, she ran over to the produce section and grabbed another bag for me, then she spotted mold on one of those apples and went back a second time to get a clean bag….wow)
Crap picture of shinjuku…maybe it’ll look cooler reduced :shrug:
Circulars hyping this pizza-derived genre of food land in our mailbox every day (the apt. mailboxes have a flip-slot front, like the old-time mail-slots in doors, nice for checking to see if you have mail, annoying for the unsolicited bulk mail you get everyday…still, beats having them stuffed into every crack in the molding they way they are in every non-doormaned apartment building in NYC, and can you imagine a 1000+ resident apartment building in the states where you can reach in and grab your neighbors mail with only a minimal effort?) highlights include everything that is on the freakin’ thing: cocktail weiners (appropriately condimented with mustard and ketchup…of course), corn, and lettuce? (I assumed cabbage, e.g. sauerkraut, but with japanese pizza, assume nothing). Note the Stars & Stripes bottom right and the oh-so-appropriate name ‘GrandSlam’ – ballpark franks nestled deep in the cradle of western civ give thanks for their relatively benign fate swaddled in wonder bread.
