Man Candy - Japanese flavors

People always ask me about my love life here. And, every time, I have to admit that I have none.

It's not that I don't want a sample from the candy shop. It's just that I don't fancy the flavors on sale and the tasty looking ones are all sold out. So what's a girl to do? Wait for someone to come back for a refund, that's what.

"Nah Dee, you're just being picky."

Take a look for yourself then. Here's a menu sample:

- Salary man flavor- this is the name given to the stereotypical Japanese office worker. They seem to be stuck in a time dimension of the 1980's (pre-bubble) - big eyeglasses, high waisted and round hair. But, outside of their appearance, they drink too much, stay out too late, and without a chivalrous bone in their bodies.

- Pretty boy flavor - you haven't seen a pretty boy until you've seen a Japanese pretty boy. Sure, they are a delight to look at but I'm instantly turned off by the waxed eyebrows, flipped hairdo and handbag... ahhem I mean manbag. They walk a fine line between metrosexual and homosexual and I don't like it.

- Shibuya boy flavor - Shibuya is the name of a shopping area here but there's no other way to classify them. They march to the beat of a different drum. With wildly teased hair, extremely brown tans (some accomplished using makeup foundation ), and kind of grunge fashion style, they are just a little too hip for my ship.

So you see, I clearly don't have many options. I opened up the M&M bag of Japan and someone picked out all the yummy red ones! Bum!

It's interesting to see just how pervasive memory has become in our everyday lives. It's like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port . I guess it makes sense though, considering how cheap memory has become as of late...

Ahhh, who am I to complain. I can't get through a single day without my R4 / R4i!
