Fortune cookie: You will enjoy a trip to Asia soon

... of course, I got that fortune cookie about a year and a half ago.

Still - what's better than a trip to Japan? A free trip to Japan! What's even better than a free trip to Japan? BEING PAID to go to Japan, which is exactly what I'll be doing this December 6th-11th.

Okay, so I might have to give a presentation defending our company's new model train product ideas to a group of 30 individuals who don't really speak English and want desperately to shut the US branch down, and my failure may put both me and five other individuals out of a job as well as hasten the end of an entire hobby industry, but still! Japan! And I'm being paid to go!

MAN!! That's so awesome that you're getting to go! This must mean it's official now.

please visit the site where Battle Royale was made.

p.s. the labels made me laugh. have you not been on a plane before? I can't remember (other than skydiving).

Oh, I've been on lots of planes, although this WILL be my first trans-pacific flight - having made the transatlantic a number of times.

Awesome! That's exciting. I hope you see Asiatic raptor ostriches. That, and I wish you the best regarding the presentation. That's a hell of a lot of responsibility! Just tell 'em that 'mericans love choo-choos.
