So if I don't respond immediately to email for the coming week, or at all to phone calls, it's because I hate you and want you to die painfully. You specifically, not anybody else.
Why yes, this *is* an unfiltered post and world-viewable, why do you ask?
Note: I may or may not be able to figure out email access or find a cybercafe or equivalent in Japan. I'm not planning to bring a laptop, given what flying is like right now. So it's entirely possible that I'm just going to be entirely out of contact for a week.
