geisha and the grenade

A friend of mine in Kyoto e-mailed me to let me know that she will be in NYC this week. Last time we spoke, her mother went to the Shinto shrine for me so that I would be accepted to law school in New York. "Can you please go to the shrine for me again?" I e-mailed back, "It's been a weird week. I'll explain when you get here."

I found these geisha-inspired hair barrettes and they made me smile.

I also read this bit of news from last week.

I still won't step out the front door yet. The laundry is being picked up and I ordered my groceries through FreshDirect.

Brings a whole new meaning to 'bang'.

P.S. My parents are wandering around the city. It's best you stay indoors.
