Just now opened up a few of my Instagram photos and artwork to buy online. It’s a small step forward but sometimes that’s what it takes to go anywhere.
One of my favorite Strawberry drinks. Wish they’d bring it back.
x-awesomeology #71 - Geisha 芸者
Believe it or not a lot of the younger Japanese generations here don’t know what a geisha is. They know what a maiko 舞子 is (an apprentice to a geiko 芸子, aka geisha) but the term geisha isn’t a respected title since it’s basically a form of prostitution. Also even though this profession is fading out, I believe it’s strong ties to Japan’s cultural history will prevent the symbolism of their beauty, dance, and captivation to completely disappear.
x-awesomeology #70 - Cosplay
Taken seriously here. It doesn’t have to be Halloween to have fun. (Hamburger hair clip is a cute touch.)
x-awesomeology # 69 - Kotatsu
I want one so bad this winter. For those that don’t know, a kotatsu is a Japanese table with a built in heater down into it’s underside. It also comes with an attachable/ detachable blanket to help keep the warmth in when it’s cold. Some people even sleep under it as their own personal heated tent. The site I got this picture from shows the break down of a kotatsu in a cute toy way. Click the picture to head to their site.
x-awesomeology #8 - Tokyo Tower
Took this with my iPhone. I like this angle. I’m normally the tower here because I’m a foreigner but from this I feel more “my size”.
x-awesomeology #68 - Street Fighter
Besides Chun Li, Cammy is another character I love to play. Maybe it’s a leg thing.
Husking Bee - Just a Beginning (w/ English Subs)
Make your own rehydration drink
Thought this was cool that you can make your own (inexpensive) rehydration drink at home. But do not give this homemade drink to children younger than 12. Measure all ingredients precisely. Small variations can make the drink less effective or even harmful. Mix the following:
1 packet of Flavoraid or Koolaid
8 Tablespoons Fructose (or sugar)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/16 teaspoon Baking soda
2 Liters Water
Place all dry ingredients in a bottle and fill with cold water. Stir or shake until all dry ingredients have dissolved and enjoy.
What do I see wrong with this picture? Don’t guys wash their hands too?
