Weddings in Japan. I don't know if my friends read this site, so I won't say anything bad. But how do you rate a wedding? With the take-home gift bag of course! If you are ever out in Shibuya or Roppongi and see a group of people dressed to the nines, with matching fancy shopping bags, you can go 99% that they came from a wedding. Living in Tokyo, seeing this sight, I came to imagine that the guests get hooked up with the funnest goodie bags ever.
The first wedding I went to in this country, they gave each of their guests two teabags. Please don't give your guests two teabags. Yeah, I'm petty, but I think most people secretly want to get hooked up with a bunch of presents.
A and Y's wedding wins, if this was any sort of contest. Cake, candy, snacks, a choose-your-own-adventure prize catalog, and some fancy soap. Oh, and a new iPad.
Actually, I won a quiz contest for the iPad. Things are looking up for this guy!
Also, is it ok if I sell an iPad that I won at a friend's wedding? I played with it for a couple days, and realized that it doesn't enhance my life that much. It is fun to make the shiny things move around with my fingers, but after I checked the price of one of these, I would much rather put it towards my next motorcycle.
Or are there some apps that I am missing out on? I travel a lot for work, and don't carry a computer, so I guess I could use this to check internet stuff. Also, as someone who works part-time in the photography world, these tablets can be useful. But usually creative people who have an iPad seem to be just showing off when they whip it out, and I don't want to be that guy. Conflicted.
Back to the wedding.
Wow! Real gold foil on my savory egg custard. Tasteless, odorless gold.
I think he is talking about Per Se in that bit.
