On Context…

Just stumbled across a hilariously-incorrect translation in the Pixiv tags file I’m using: 黒パン (kuro-pan) as “Rye_Bread”.

Google it, and you will in fact find pictures and recipes featuring dark rye and pumpernickel.

Pixiv it, and you’ll find black panties. 😄

Get Swoke!

My parents are on a stuff-eliminating binge as part of their move into a new place, resulting in a number of rather surprising packages arriving at my house. Clearly I come by my packrat ways honestly.

This never-used gem turns a 14-inch wok into a tea smoker. The company still exists and still sells woks, but Google suggests that I may be the only one in the world with an honest-to-gosh Swoke Kit.

I’m pretty sure the included wood chips and tea leaves have lost their flavor since 1983, though. 😜

Yeah, it’s like that…

Plausible headline…

Dear Hello!Project Costume Designers,

I’m pretty sure there’s nothing Egyptian about these costumes, despite their use in your new stage show “Pharaoh’s Tomb”.

What’s in a name?

Shouldn’t these be called naanites?
