crazy idea of the day: let’s move to japan!

I’ve been spending all week looking at cool Japanese hairstyles because I’m heading off to a real Japanese hair salon to get my hair cut this weekend.  And I just love how Japanese people are so creative and cute with their hair and makeup.  I also love how Japanese people are so meticulous (supposedly, the people at this hair salon will spend an hour or more cutting your hair just right and will constantly ask for feedback as they go), people-pleasing (they’ll serve you tea and juice as you wait your turn), and respectful (at authentic Japanese restaurants, you’ll always be greeted by a chorus of hearty “welcomes” in Japanese from everyone on staff as you enter).  They’re also, for the most part, more introverted, which saves me from having to make pointless small talk.  All of these qualities are things that I find sorely lacking in America today, which leads me to the conclusion that I’ll be really happy if I move to Japan.  The fact that I’ll probably never have to see or hear from my in-laws again is also a big plus.  I really hate it when I come up with random ideas that I become obsessed with until I fulfill them (the whole buying a Prius thing was one such thing), but I really think that this is one of the better ideas I’ve had this year.  So, as soon as I can afford it (which probably won’t be for a long awhile), I’ll be paying Japan a little visit to see if it’s really the place for me.  Um yeah, and I think I need to figure out if I’ll be able to practice medicine there with my American degrees…

Sadness.  Mr. Wizard, who taught me that you can’t eat more than three or so pretzels because the salt on them dries out your mouth making it hard for you to swallow and inspired me to pursue science as a career died recently. :(

Rumor is that they’re planning to get rid of the Hummer H2 because of slow sales.  Now if only they would get rid of all Hummers.  And SUVs and big trucks.
