Monster mazes, empty spaces, pretty faces and more!


Back Soon

No updates for a couple of weeks as I’m off to the UK for my wedding!
I’ll be back on the 20th and hope to have something new up by the end o the month.

Earthquakes and Tsunamis

Straight off I want to say that I was personally well away from the area(s) affected by the quakes and tsunami.

It is impossible however to continue to write a blog about my life in Japan without acknowledging the terrible events of the past few days. I don’t want to try and write an account of the events, which by now have been exhaustively covered on the news. What I would like to do though is to give a slightly different perspective, some things that you won’t have seen on the disaster focused news – life going on. (more…)


Password Protected

I felt a bit uncomfortable having that my last blog entry open publicly. It seemed to generate quite a bit of interest and I felt it was unfair to show what were some quite personal things so openly when there’s a good chance this person might have living relatives in the area; which also made me nervous that someone local might recognise the place.

So now it’s password protected – but if you know me the password is simply my first and last name written as one word with no spaces.

I’ve added a few new collages to the bottom of the article now it’s protected as well.

Thank You :-)

I just sat down to write a new haikyo article and was pleased to discover that yesterday was my first day with more than 100 visits – 107 to be precise! Considering the short time I’ve been writing this blog I’m very happy about that.

Thank you all for stopping by and a big thank you to the small (but growing) pool of regular visitors.

On another positive note – I wrote to Skydrive and got my deleted galleries reinstated (minus a few photos of Japanese adult magazines) so the gallery links should be working again 🙂

There’s a lot more haikyo and Yokai to come this year, so stay tuned.

Now I’ll go and finish today’s main article 🙂


Well the gallery links seem to be up and down faster than a yoyo pro’s yoyo – I can’t tell if it’s technical problems or if windows live is really deleting my account – whatever it is it’s very annoying. I’m going to start shifting my galleries over to a new host (or hosts) and replcing links, but there’s going to be some bad gallery links for a while.
