No Stationery, No Life

Does that phrase aptly describe you?  If so, head over to Everyday Stationery, a Japanese web-based magazine that features articles on Japanese stationery goods. Even though there are only a handful of articles in English, I am sure the collection will grow given time. For brave souls or those who are well-versed in Japanese, browse…

Housekeeping

Do not worry, I am not about to impart any wisdom on organization, as I am the worse.  As some of you know, I have migrated from Blogger to WordPress about a month ago.  Even though I have written a small signpost indicating the new URL, I have been meaning to set up a 301…
