If Knowing Is Half the Battle…

If G.I. Joe says knowing is half the battle then Starbucks says that anticipation is half the fun. Though with the contents of the boxes known, there’s no anticipation. No anticipation means half the fun is gone, but yet knowing is half the battle. So where does that leave us?!?! Confused, I guess. Advertisements

It simply don’t matter. From watermelon to poke, the results are the same – winner. Let’s set the stage. Ricefest 2017. Third annual poke bowl eating contest sponsored by Paina Cafe. Two bowls.

Today I Am Defeated

Today I am defeated although it started last night with the surprise release of the SNES Classic Edition. So if you recall, I had one of these pre-ordered through Walmart but this “accidental” release was cancelled. Last night Best Buy released their pre-orders, accidentally or not.

Faith Lost

Looks like this “faithful niner” has lost his faith. Beaten down and broken down, this abandoned truck has been collecting parking tickets for sometime. It’s missing one window, the car battery is under the vehicle, and it’s sitting on three wheels. Yeah, I’d say faith has been lost.

I was advised that I would have lots of coins while traveling in Japan, and sure enough, a handful collects in no time. Just another benefit of using a Pasmo or Suica card instead of paper or coin currency.

Transgressions from the Weekend

So over the weekend, I witnesseed two transgressions. The first was at a dance showcase at the Blaisdell Concert Hall. Of course, the venue was darkened during the dance performances. Then this happened. This older gentleman would bust out his iPad to take pictures. In the dimmed lighting, that screen was super bright, blinding those […]

My Japan Education: Forest Bathing

So there’s scientific backing that being in the presence of trees, known as forest bathing, has tangible health benefits? So says a Japanese national public health program that started back in 1982. Just remember that when you enter a forest, pick up a rock, put a problem in, and drop it. You can pick up […]
