Three Pictures: Foxes in Japan

Sometimes, a theme just presents itself. Our Japan trip filled camera rolls with foxes – statues, actual live foxes, and a little origami. Picture 1: Fushimi Inari, near Kyoto, is best known for its orange-red torri gates – there are supposedly 10,000 of them – I didn’t count them, and it seems like no one…

Outfit Meltdowns and Failures to Get Dressed..

Remember when Forbes raised eyebrows with this article about what to wear to E3? This isn’t that article.
