Oh, dear. (あらまあ。)

Ah. Hah.

Well, you skip a week of posts, that's laziness, but you skip an entire month (ok, and then some) and I think it evolves into something like commitment, don't you?

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Anyway, what with the moving back to America-land, applying for the MEXT research scholarship (application sent off last Friday, thank you for asking), and the daily grind of kanji-studying, novel-reading and Wii-exercising, my life has slowly devolved into a daily humdrum not exactly conducive to thrilling bouts of bloggery.

Succinctly put: no ideas, no posts, kids.

So in the interim, I thought I'd share a refreshing bit of fashion-feminism with you all. Because if I can't be amusing, I can at least be supportive of the counter-heteronormative, yes?

I think the url speaks for itself.


Down with conformity! Oppose the skankily-bedecked public image! Declare your existence as separate from faceless sexist drudgery! FIGHT THE POWAH!


This is Edo, signing off not feeling nearly as guilty about this whole blog-neglect thing as she probably should.

PS- Let it be said that I know next to nothing about high fashion (since I don't think ロリタ系 and Vivienne Westwood really count), nor do I really find myself anything like entranced by clothing that makes my frugal soul hide and cry under the bed. I just like to see people doing things that fight the heteronormativity running rampant and unchecked in our society. Right? Right.

I also like getting my thesis-buzz-word out there as much as possible. Boo. Yaka.

good luck with the MEXT scholarship, you'll do fine! good luck! I got upgraded off the waitlist for JET since I last left a comment
