Tokyo, Me and Two T-Shirts

What did you see first - the city or me?  Where does the city stop and where do I begin?

It's hard to say.

The kids and I are in Tokyo visiting their grandparents during Spring Break and we're having a ball.  At dinner tonight I was trying to take a picture of the city and then I realized I was taking a picture of myself.  The city is tiny and I am a giant, looming over it.

How did that happen?

In other news - you probably know that many items in Japan have things written in "Japanglish".  Today I saw two T-shirts that made me laugh out loud.

One said "Make sense".  Wouldn't you love to be able to shout that at people sometimes?  "Would you please just make some sense?!"

The other said "Losing Heart Without Losing Mind".  What a lofty goal.  Until you stop and think about it...

Funny. You have your sister's dry, competent wit. As if it's hair color or something.

Thanks Kevin! Actually *she* has *my* wit but whatever. :)

How are you doing in your new place? I hope all is well!
