Welcome back to America. Go screw yourself.

Issues of reverse culture shock...

Japanese escalators are wondrous beasts. Most of them are motion activated, meaning you step on and they start up. Outside of my supermarket this evening, I stepped on an unmoving escalator. It didn't start, so I got off. You can't walk up an elevator if it's not moving. That'd be like walking up...stairs.

I walked up the escalator.

Another Japanese escalator surprise: they almost always work. That was a big change from Washington, DC, where the escalators for the region's Metro are regularly out. Yes, there was nothing more exhilarating than getting off at Dupont Circle, the deepest station in the system, and finding out the escalator wasn't working. Exhilarating and, dare I say it, fun. So much fun I couldn't wipe off the f***ing smile.

Why the ***? My mom reads this blog. That's why.

In other news, Happy Guy Fawkes Day! Okay, I'm 17 days late (Nov. 5 is the day in question). But it's never to late to celebrate Catholic attempts to blow up Parliament. Good times!
