Everything questionable but unquestionably weird is popular in Japan, including (probably) Two Girls and One Cup and (definitely!) any and all P-Diddy Making the Band creations. I’m not sure why this is, but I am intrigued and willing to take my chance in furtherance of a successful career filled with drugs, sex, rock ‘n roll, and Cats in Harijuku Girls’ Pants.
Since this isn’t WWII and the Japanese won’t come to me (inappropriate), it looks like I have to go to them, so I’m packing my bags and heading to Tokyo for the three-day weekend, stars in my eyes and a souvenir-request list from my friends containing nothing but “little girls’ underwear from a vending machine.” Alright … Any trip is too short, but three days in the Land of the Rising Sun is better than none days and I’m confident I can ride in like an A-Bomb and inflict the maximum amount of damage in the minimum amount of time (unquestionably inappropriate).
I’ve always been able to pack light but this trip is proving to be more difficult than others in terms of prioritizing items and maximizing space in my carry on. Since I’m only going for a few days, I can’t justify a checked bag and anyway, if I were to bring one, I’d have to find a better excuse for not bringing home a vending-machine full of an eight-year-old’s panties than “didn’t have room dudes, totes sorry.” But with the trip looming, I’ve still got some space issues to work through and am hoping you have some suggestions as to non-essential items.
Here is what’s taking up the most room in my suitcase at the moment:
Advice welcome, and if I’m missing anything, you’ve got 18 hours to remind me. Otherwise, I’ll catch you on the frip side (never appropriate).
