Hanako

My lost friend Hanako is back from traveling. She's been staying with us for a couple of weeks. It's been so fun. She's as messy as I am, and I love a mess (sorry, Ayabean).

But she also cooks delicious food all the time. I was slowly, happily shrinking on my distracted-bachelor diet and then Hanako fluttered in with her udon and shrimp pasta and okonomiyaki every night. "Because you don't eat well!" For god's sake, summer's coming! Let a girl starve! "And you should learn to cook!" Oh, yeah? WHAT DO YOU CALL THIS?

Jesus Christ delicious! I urge you residents of Japan to go buy a some jam, bread and a jar of real peanut butter and see how fond absence has made your heart. Has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich ever disappointed anyone?

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches meant "AMERICA! Want to live there, why was I born here?!" to me and my friends when we were very small. Sayi g "jelly" instead of "jam" was very cool. Memories...

Have been eating a lot of PBJ over here, too. PB lasts FOREVER; mine is expired by I won't tell you how many months but still tastes GREAT and I haven't gotten salmonella yet!
