Also seen @ Daiso in Cuperino. Oh please, please, somebody who reads Japanese (I know for a fact some of you nerds are more than fluent / literate in Japanese and have lived or live in Japan now) translate this for me because I’m pretty sure, given the drawings and the look on the girl’s face as she discovers her new ginormous bosom at the end of the instructions, something more is going on than just stuffing her bra.

Irie man Sherwin, you never told me about your career as a party wig model in Japan!
Seen at Daiso in Cupertino. I can’t tell if the guy is a light-skinned black guy, a dark-skinned Japanese guy (more likely a Korean or Pilipino model then), or something Blackface-like going on with the makeup. I also can’t tell if it’s racist or not. I just feel like it’s what conservative Japanese businessmen think of as a “crazy party wig” when most of us probably know at least one guy that just looks like that normally.
Or are one of the tons of guys that just looks like that normally.

Maybe only on the streets of San Francisco…
Or New York City would I look up to see this guy in a partial hot pink bear suit walk past me and not even give it a second thought. I only took some quick photos because I ended up walking behind him for several blocks during end of business day rush hour traffic. Which also made me realize that just like in NYC, both the guy in the bear suit and everyone else could not care less and were too busy getting on with their own lives to give this guy more than a brief double-take. Hey, after all— bear suit or not— we’ve all got places to go, things to do, so let’s keep it moving.
Of course, the outfit couldn’t help reminding me of the 90s club kid scene in New York, including Clara the Carefree Chicken (and crack addict).

What a great product name.

Food chopper blade or ninja star?
Washing out my new food chopper— maybe I watch a little too much #CriminalMinds, #LawAndOrder, and #Elementary, but wouldn’t this be a great ninja star-like weapon in a pinch?

Finally doing about half a decade’s worth of #SpringCleaning and found these while tossing out the box my @DirecTV replacement receiver came in— held onto them because don’t they just scream “Arts & Crafts”? Like they’re just begging to help make/decorate Easter eggs or some third-grade science project growing lima beans?

On Food Truck Names
I don’t know if it’s just the recent hipster love for food trucks, but you have to applaud food truck vendors for the effort they put into their “whimsical” names. This month’s food truck schedule at my apartment complex reads like a @McSweeneys List.
Hipster Food Truck Names
- Shark Bait – fish tacos and hamburgers.
- O Mi Ninja – Vietnamese street food.
- Road Dogs – Specialty hot hogs.
- Rice Rickit & Soulnese – Savory hood with Asian fusion twist and
Asian soul food.
Except for the title, word for word from the flyer. I love it when the real world and the “surreal” world of our squirrely little brains and clever little thoughts blur.

Kitty Pumpkin Juice!
No seriously— the black and orange kitten is named “Pumpkin” and the sleeping cat curled around here is named “Juice”. Named completely separately and entirely coincidental.

Public Restroom Mirror of Affirmation: An Unfortunate Series of Events (a photo essay)
- When I got into the office on Monday morning, I was greeted by these Post-It shenanigans on my monitor (and yes, that reads #sorryimnotsorry because even on paper, we use hashtags in Silicon Valley). Nice cheerful start to the morning, right?
- Then, I walked into the women’s restroom around noon and found these Post-Its along around the mirror…
- “Be your own valentine all year round!”
(Thinking: Okay, maybe just a stupid thing some sappy girl did for Valentine’s Day…)
- “Smile ☺ You Are L♥ved!”
(Rather than a public restroom, seems like a daily affirmation more appropriate to have on the mirror in your own private home— you know, the one into which you say, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.”— but okay, it’s still a nice sentiment…)
- “Bring one of these Post-Its to someone who needs it!”
(Yeah, that’s not going to happen— I don’t do chain letters, even if they’re on Post-Its…)
- “Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too.”
Okay, now you’re just being unreasonable.

I TAP OUT. I was actually trying to clean up my closet, hanging up and folding a mess of clothes when things started falling off of hangers and all the shelves started to collapse.
I’ll just take this as a sign that I should turn in for the night…
