Aren’t you just weirded out by Tokyo Disney’s Usatama character? This rabbit-egg hybrid reminds me of a zombie or faceless ghost. Whatever your opinion, Usatama will be at Tokyo Disney and DisneySea from April 4 through June 14, 2017.
A little late, but I tried the new Starbucks Cascara Latte which contains the fruit of the coffee cherry. Umm, yeah, it’s okay but only slightly, in a subtle, nuanced way. The cascara doesn’t alter the flavor profile of the espresso base, more like heightens (or deepens) the natural flavor. I’ll pass on this drink […]
One freakin dongle at a time…
At work, I was fortunate enough to order the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and accessories in November. After a prolonged ordering process, my (third party) order finally went through. After not hearing any more after a few days, I contacted the company that replied with a tracking number. Albeit a slow delivery of […]

Only available in one model, the Wool Runner, I’d like to make my own assessment of their comfort level, especially with the 30-day return policy, but the colorway has to be right. The black and grey colorways are […]

Over the years, these theaters have changed names, most recently known as Water Garden that showed older movies at reduced prices. But the phase has begun with Kailua Cinemas featuring luxury reclining seats. While the theater is open for business, the remodeling is still […]
The Squatty Potty just isn’t a gag gift for Christmas parties. It’s the real deal. Otherwise, why would Costco be selling it and as a two pack as well!

Okay, so the display case of goodies at a Starbucks in Target is never really full to begin with, but the holidays really took its toll.
