Is it already December 17th? HOLY CRAP I have a lot to do before our departure on the 23rd. A friend emailed me the other day and said, “See you next week!” and I almost wet my pants — NEXT WEEK??! It can’t be next week already! 14-hour-plane-ride-with-toddler-in-my-lap, HERE WE COME!
I took this pic Tuesday morning during my weekly study session at McDonald’s. That’s right: McDonalds. Though I rarely set foot in the shop while in America (perhaps because of a childhood kiddie meal overdose), both hubs and I frequently study at McDs here in Japan. Its different — more stylish and hip. And the service — wow! They come running to my table with the tray, apologizing all over themselves that they couldn’t get it to me at the counter a minute earlier! (Again, if you’d like to read a very hilarious and frighteningly accurate portrayal of Japanese culture, please read Dave Barry Does Japan.)
Though its hard to tell, these chairs are orange. And since its the beginning of the day and patrons have been few, they are nicely arranged, just like ALL THE OTHER CHAIRS in the shop are. Angled around the table like that.
I’m tellin’ ya — Japan is COOL.
