Cute Japanesey-ness (attn: metaphorge)

Saturday afternoon, djdigit and I rambled around a bit in Japan Center seeking nourishment and High-End Sake. We stopped in to a couple of shops and got a whole pile of j-kuteness, but I spotted the coolest silliest little thing at the celphone/car junk shop and immediately hollered out "Whoa! That's totally something metaphorge would freak out for!!
mini camouflage be@rbrick!!
Yeah!! A miniature Camouflage Be@rbrick!!

Anyhow, djdigit spent a while taking silly little photos of all the toys and cutey cuteness, so those will all probably show up somewhere online soon.

djdigit also gave me a pink little monkey guy from a set of Bathing Ape Baby Milo (see below, right-hand photograph for reference milo) knock-offs - I don't care if they're inauthentic because they're so damned cute. And pink monkeys are go.

some photos of Futura's studio that popped up when i was googling for Baby Milo. I dunno.

After we sucked up about all the japanese cuteness we could handle, it was decided that we should suck up some raw japanese murder- Sushi Boats at Isobune, always a crowd-pleaser. I was acting like a total spastic because I hadn't taken my brain medicine for a couple of days (on purpose).D was gentle when he told me to shut the hell up. Awwww.

We headed outside to chill in the Peace Plaza with our gullets full of Maguro, Unagi and Tamago. One of the many reasons I convinced djdigit to head out to Japan Center was our search for the Holy Sake Grail, this amazingly tasty sake we like to call Kamio-Zoomy but really it's Junmai Daiginjo "Honjikomi Kamoizumi". We failed at our Sake quest, sadly, and opted instead to pick up some other sake, which turned out to be awful. Out of our depths in the land of Sake.

We did, however, pick up some Kissmint and some prime Engrish packaging design, a hard candy called "Snowballing Penguins"

- I think djdigit should submit his photos to the Adult Engrish section they've added. The funniest thing about this isn't the name, or the candy itself (it's reasonably yumtasty), it's that we both immediately got the joke and laughed hysterically at the bawdy innuendo. We're tuned in to the same silly crap, that's for sure.

The urban camouflage sheets I gave djdigit glow all nice and blue under blacklight. This is both excellent and weird. The brightness produces a very strange visual effect, sort of makes it look like you're floating on clouds or in a lighted swimming pool.

Saturday was a nice day, all in all, and we had a pretty damned fine night, as well. Rainchecking St. Valentine was a pretty good call.

Glowing sheets are definately weird. I have Nightmare Before Christmas sheets where all the Jack Skellingtons glow in the dark. They keep me awake until their bright green glow fades out. But you know, they are so cool I can't not use them on my bed.

Doi, I was hoping for rather more of a freak-out. What does your Camouflage interest stem from, anyhow?
