When I moved back to Tokyo two summers ago, my mother was growing about three different things on the balcony. A net supporting a curtain of leafy vines stretched from our second floor balcony to the roof, sprouting delicate flowers. “I’m growing bitter gourd,” she said. “Is it working?” was my response. As this is […]

Saw the smallest CAAD 10, ever… Did some retail therapy… Then went to get my hair cut for the [AKB48's] Maririn meets Air Attack look. I hope this makes me more aero…

Track bikes are to ‘cross frames what stilettos are to Crocs. Not everyone can wear them, much less wear them well. To a good portion of the population, the distinctly sharp shoe is simply impracticality in its most feminist-inhibiting form.
