Bridging the Chuhai Seasons
I do love me some chuhai, and the seasonal flavors can be so good, though so temporary. On this day, I had one from autumn (apple flavor) and one from winter (yuzu flavor), both right there. A good day, this.

More Chicken Sandwich Madness at McD's
Currently: German Sausage Chicken Sandwich
It wasn't terrible. November will feature the Diavolo (Diablo?) and the Carbonara.
I will try them all. Just for you. Stay tuned.
(see here for all of these wonders and here for the cheese fondue version)

My Faux Goal
One of my goals in life has been to one day wear false eyelashes in public. Considering I can get them super cheaply at the 100 yen store and that it was Halloween weekend, with thanks to several tutorials on youtube and a lot of patience (took me about 45 minutes), another goal has finally been realized. Gotta dream big folks.
