    Astute thoughts. While 2004 still feels ‘closer’ than Japan 2009, Japan 2009 is definitely closer than, say, 1974.

    No one knows what they’re talking about. Japan is in the future!

    the future is not what it used to be. and furthermore, it never was.

    As an aside, hand grenade pie is terrible. Even if it is like Mom used to make.

    The irony of the universal nature of this soliloquy, and the blatant plowing-over of Boy, make this one of the most intellectually and emotionally charged cat and girl comics I have read in the last 45 seconds.

    The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

    BTW, I’m from the future. 2008 seems farther away from me than Japan.

    I sleep in a bag on a piece of waste ground.
    My last people offered to adopt me (adult adoption is a thing in japan) but I think the mental breakdown I had at the time they were leaving messed that up.

    Japan was close, but now it seems very far away.

    This makes me sad…
