April

On April 29th, my scanner died, so I went online for a new one.  

One store's home page read, “Passover Holiday Closing.  We are not accepting orders at this time.  Checkout will be available starting at 9:15 pm EST Sat April 30.”

“B & H Photo is Jewish,” I told Chupa, who is Jewish.  “Happy Passover!”

Chupa paused.

“. . . thank you . . . that means so much to me,” he said.

“Did you know it was Passover?”

“I had my suspicions,” Chupa replied.  “As soon as you said, ‘Happy Passover,’ I thought, ‘I bet it’s Passover.’ ”

I'd feel solidly Asian if I drank jasmine tea and snacked on lotus slices sprinkled with heroin.

I'm going to start posting random photos from my collection of Japanese home decor magazines, since I love the combination of Japanese kanji/hirigana/katakana with impeccable styling/photography/layout.  

This one is from a magazine called Kawaii [Something], Volume 2.  I have no idea what the second word is.  

At the top of the cover, there are some characters that read "putesuito na interia to [something] hon."  Something interior and something book.  aahhh I don't know.

On Sunday (Mom’s only day off), I tried to cajole Mom into organizing the guest bedroom closet, which houses half of her collection of cheap clothes.  You can’t walk into it without getting irritated by the plastic bags housing giant, billowy comforters that take up most of the floor and tangle with your feet like leeches.

Mom grumbled about not wanting to clean, but followed me into the guest room anyway.
