Comic: Marriage

Marriage is fun. And no, not just because I get to boss my husband around. That was one of the annoying, newlywed things I did (still not even sure why I did that) – thank goodness Ryosuke is loving enough to put up with me during my weird [...]

Comic: I’m going to wake up early

This happens. Often. As soon as I started working from home, I started getting enough sleep. But then a funny thing happened: I lost the motivation to drag myself out of bed in the morning. It doesn’t matter if I set an alarm or not, if I [...]

Comic: I need a hair cut

As I talked about in this comic, one of my (many) person quirks is the fact I don’t enjoy getting my hair cut. At all. I don’t like it when people I don’t know touch my hair/face. Which means I usually get one drastic hair cut a [...]

Comic: Sleeping on Trains in Japan

Four years in Japan and I can finally fall asleep on trains about 1/5th of the time, when I try really hard. I’m very proud of this accomplishment, much more than you can understand. I’m the kind of person who can’t sleep in cars, [...]

Comic: I hate shopping

Okay, so I don’t actually hate shopping. I just hate certain types of shopping. Like shopping for shorts. I thought this was just an American problem – because when I was in high school/college, it was really difficult to find a pair of [...]

Comic: Bug Spray

I haaaaaaate mosquito bites on the face. Ugh. For some reason, mosquitoes really like biting my face. And my ankles. Everywhere else, not so much. Thankfully the mosquito season is basically over now, so this SHOULD be the last bite of the season [...]
