This page is most for some friends of mine so bare with me.
Tokyo, more than most cities I’ve been to is under constant change. Just last year 2 giant complexes opened, Roppongi Hills ("row" like "row your boat", "pon" like "pony", "gee" like "geek) and Shiodome (she-oh-dome-ay). Old buildings are always getting torn down, new buildings are always going up and businesses come and go with the seasons.
Well, yesterday I was walking from work to Shibuya and I passed by this place with all these different restaurants. Here are pictures of the interior of the restaurants as captured from pictures on the outside of the building. To my friends, can you guess where this is?
Today being Valentine’s day I received some giri-choco which
Anyway, not only did I get giri-choco. I got giri-purin (pudding). But it’s not just any pudding it was this.
Once opened it says “やさしくかむのよ” which means “bite gently”

I need shoes desperately and I can’t find any here in Tokyo. The 2 relatively nice pairs of shoes I brought with me are over 4 years old now and starting to fall apart. Probably from the 1 to 5 miles a day I walk in Tokyo. I’ve been shoe shopping about 10 days over the last 2 months now and so far I’ve failed to find any.
The problem is Japanese feet are smaller than American feet. Supposedly the average size of a Japanese man’s foot is an American size 8. The average in America is a size 10. All the department stores in Japan only carry to size 9 as do pretty much all the shoe stores.
I recently started dancing like a maniac. Even though 2 years ago I wrote why I didn’t really get dancing, last November, 2 1/2 months ago, I had a really hard week. I’m not going to go into that now but suffice it to say I had something I needed to forget, to get off my mind and so I decided I would do it by dancing.

My PC died all of a sudden Thursday morning. I’d boot and it would basically start crawling at the desktop meaning it would get to the desktop relatively quickly but once there it could take 5 to 20 minutes to get anything running. I thought it might be a virus but no, that’s not it
