So, I went on this holiday, right. And to prove that I went on this holiday, or more importantly to prove that I'm alive, I took, like, five thousand photos. Or thereabouts.

I've put the ones from Japan online, along with some witty commentary and judicious cropping. Since Flickr will only let me have three sets (what is with that?) they can be found in a dog-eared, autumn-leaf-like pile at


I don't guarantee that I photographed everything in Japan, but there are love hotels, Ghibli merchandises, parfaits with cornflakes in them, maple leaves, cherry blossoms, engrishes and pink fluffy dresses for your chihuahua. If that doesn't satisfy, nothing will.

I remember japanese people looking at those spider crabs and saying "oishisou!" fucked up!!!

From aprilish. Nothing much has changed :)

Maybe if you say you want to eat the evil, it makes it less evil. And more delicious.

I really need to go back if I can get my $ together. maybe when I get my translation paycheck.

You went to north korea too?! those pics blew my mind. I didn't think they let tourists in to north korea...

It really was an amazing trip. I haven't done any blogging about it, but I still may yet. There's a lot of mental processing still to do.

And looking back through the photos, I have so many shots of doorknobs that I think I may have inadvertently revealed one of the great loves of my life. Doorknobs, that is. They're just great.

Unless you pay a subscription fee ($19 US a year, not bad) then you can only upload a limited amount of pics. I ummed and ahhhd and decided to subscribe to flickr. I think I have 20 photo sets now! :P

Re: Flickr
I was umming and ahhing over signing up last night, but eventually decided I didn't want yahoo having my a. credit card details and b. real name associated with my account. I don't know, I just got very creeped out during the signup process and had a Cory Doctorow-slash-EFF moment.

Well, lassie, I'm unemployed, so I'm verily at your disposal. Who knows how long though. I might wake up one morning and just print off like, 2000 resumes and then I'll probably end up milking llamas in Peru. Executive llamas, though, wouldn't want to hurt the career track.
