I'm a pale alien salaryman, who worked more than 20+yr at "Maybe-the-Largest Inc" in Tokyo. The best term for me now is "o-yatoi gaikokujin" (お雇い外国人) alien hired-gun/consultant. Interests? Well...let's say nothing bores me but sleeping, slacking, snaking, snacking and surfing the Net are my obsessions although working out lifting weights and swimming is what I should be doing right now.

  1. i think they’re realeasing it way too much before autumn/winter season…Sanyo is intttending to create a new fashion before everyone else? who knows…anyway, I think the same a you, a scarf is more adecuate than this neck warmer toaster..

  2. From your authoritative viewpoint, I am curious what kind of comment spam you like best?
