Wahey! It is I, GBD, your glorious overlord. I don’t usually take over these open forum dealies, but Zarnyx asked me if I could today and I was like, “Sure! Not like I have anything going on.”

Though I kinda do. Tomorrow morning, bright and early (actually too early for light) I’m flying out to Japan with my wife. Though there’s no direct flight to Japan from Indianapolis, so I have to fly to Texas first. But that’s beside the point! I’m going to Japan! It’s been a dream of mine since I was a tiny boy detective, and I’m very nervous/excited about the whole ordeal.

I’ll be staying in Kyoto for a week and then Tokyo for a week. Riding bullet trains. Checking out temples. Catching Pokemon.

I assume I’ll come back from Japan with gratuitous amounts of retro Nintendo titles, and amiibo, and samurai swords, and saki. And as sumo champion. ALL HAIL EMPEROR CLOBBERSAUROUS!
