Almost $400 of this ****, no idea what to expect from any of these pens or paper but they will all be in a museum one day.

Forgot about the (5) Kleid Stationery A5 2mm Grid Notebooks and (4) Kleid Stationery A6 Work Memo Notebooks that I ordered from the Tokyo Pen Shop. Anyway, everything arrived in the mail today.

My first thoughts are:
1. I bought too much stuff
2. That's ok .... I want to try everything and see what I like
3. These fancy notebooks are pretty damn small
4. Reminds me of eating at fine dining restaurants where you spend tons of money and you leave hungry because the portions are too small
5. Writing with fancy pens and paper better be worth it
6. All of the notebooks were wrapped like they came from the Smithsonian
7. I bet museum curators are super self-conscious about the sweat glands in their hands all the time


Well, maybe I'll take some pictures one day if I get around to it. I have no idea how I'm going to learn to write so damn small, and everything has to be typed on software anyway, but the notebooks are great for ideas and pre-writing.

And I was touched by the Finger of God. And I heard His voice:

You know, ever since all this stuff happened in December and January, it's crazy how things have turned around for me. I'm not such a base person that I would ever equate miracles with personal or material gain, but when you're a lowly human being you can't help but feel positive when good fortune comes your way.

So I paid $30 for my $60 dinner and two free glasses of wine. The homely looking hostess or food runner who obviously had a thing for me last time kept checking up and said "welcome back, sir".

Not bad, I left a good tip and I'm sure I'll return soon.

You might like what Nanami Paper has on offer. I stocked up heavily on the Seven Seas Writer notebooks because they're such a joy to write on.

Thanks man. Nanami says they are all unavailable right now, but I'm going to keep checking until I order one and try it out.

Re: YOLO -- Las Vegas and Tokyo Story Edition

Minor guitar setback. Broken little finger on right hand. Never had a broken bone before. I look around on the internet and seems like it should be few hundred dollars less than $1,000 for simple break unless you need surgery, complex fracture etc. So I got referred to the UCLA urgent care center. Its $200 for an exam. The doctor tells me to go to orthopedics instead. I go there and get Xrays and then the doctor examines me. Says it will cost $3,500 to set the bone and put in a splint. Told her no thanks. Then they wanted to charge me $500 for not doing anything when I had only agreed to the $200 consultation at the other place.

So long story short I told them how it was going to be. I paid $200 and went home. Still have a broken finger. Now have to find a real doctor not a senior citizen insurance factory.

I'm in ****ing enemy mode right now. Every single person. Love it.

I'm in such fu mode right now, I'm eating dinner at a bar, not ordering any drinks, blowing off this hot chick and her average looking friends sitting next to me.

Steak sandwich is ok.
