How fantastic would it be if I could give you a free trip to Japan?


I would love to do that!!!
But not today.  Next week.

Let's obsess over Japan now. 

I take free trips to Japan inside my head.  Would you like to join me?

Let’s watch NHK.

I don't watch much TV, but Chupa plays video games and leaves the PS4 on when he's done, in case he feels like playing again (this is why he leaves forty music equipment things on at all times too).  After fifteen minutes, the PS4 switches to the TV, which is set to NHK, so I see four seconds of a show here and 1800 seconds of a show there.

I'm too lazy to meditate, but have a high tolerance for slow, soothing narration explaining peaceful and sometimes dull footage of obscure plants emerging from the forest soils of sparsely-populated prefectures.

I show tasty meals to Chupa to remind him that he's with the wrong person.

Is this page a little sparse?  Sure!  
More stuff will be added at some point in the future.  

A vague promise that may never be fulfilled is my favorite kind of promise.
