    Great TiLT! I’m also teaching my dog to high five. I’m glad there’s at least one other dog in the world who will be awesome if ever encountering my dog.

    I love these posts. I think I may have to copy you soon.
    On a side note, I wish you still lived in Florida. We need more people like you who find good in the seemingly mundane things that surround them.

    It’s so amazing that you’re reading Junji Ito, he’s my favorite Mangaka!
    I recommend you to read Uzumaki, though all of his works are pretty intense. http://manga.animea.net/uzumaki-chapter-1-page-1.html

    I love gluten, poor allergic folks be damned. And thanks for posting that list of soups, I know what I will be exploring when I get to New York, after the thaw.
