links

I think that making links posts is my version of meditation. For those of you who find these posts stressful or overwhelming to look at, just keep walking. I’ll write real words later on or show pretty pictures of things or whatever. For the rest of you, maybe book a few days off work for this one.

  1. WHOA..that is seriously epic links post! I personally love them though, so thanks. They are what drew me to your blog in the first place, but I stayed for the Nova awesomeness, hehe. — I can’t tell you how many hours of my life I’ve spent clicking on all these links in the past months. I’ve discovered some awesome things through them and some I’d wished I’d never heard about, but it’s all good. Ha!

  2. Thanks for the mention there! That cafe was pretty epic, but I’ve heard that it’s not a unique idea in Korea! Definitely up for doing a tour of them so that i can compare! Thanks for sharing some other links too, I am definitely going to procrastinate tomorrow at work and make sure that i give each and everyone a good look!

  3. Are you kidding. This is epic. I love your links posts. I leave this page open in my browser and over the course of a few days open most of them and demand my husband share in any amusement or amazement I feel.
    Take care you. Xx

  4. Phew, finally made it through this epic links post. Thanks for sharing!

    In answer to your question “The daily life of a grandma and her odd-eyed cat. Why is she bathing with pumpkins?”, they’re not pumpkins but Japanese oranges (Mikan). It’s common for people out here to put them in baths or hot springs as they make the water and air all lovely and, well, orangey. I am a fount of knowledge when it comes to random things that Japanese people do!
