Pookie’s daily crotch-cleaning ritual.

About Sarah
I’m a 5’2″ half-Japanese, half-Polish/Irish/Lithuanian “windup doll” according to an art teacher I had once. I live in Tokyo with a boy with glasses and two unrelated tuxedo cats.

I draw comics, make websites, host podcasts, and take pictures. I also spend too much time thinking about money, food and human behavior. My favorite pastime is drinking too much and watching copious amounts of Guy Fieri.

I’m a super Type A person, so I’m constantly looking for the next thing to do. Some kind and patient people have urged me to put my extra energy into a blog, so that’s what I’m doing. I also love sharing life in Tokyo with people who may not be able to experience it for themselves.

I like to keep things organized, so I’ve broken up the blog into the following topics:

featured-hungry
Eating and drinking stuff in Japan! I cover everything from snacks to take-out to booze.

featured-stuff
Doing my part as a consumer in a capitalist society: toys, household goods, games, clothing, and so on!

Asobee-Logo
The weekly video game podcast Roy and I host. We do Let’s Plays of a variety of games, which basically means we record ourselves drinking and rambling at a television screen.

featured-out
Travel category with copious photos of all the places we visit! I’ll cover day trips and vacations along with a myriad of themed cafés.

featured-shop
Where I’ll explain how to do stuff. Since my ~talents~ range from drawing people inside boxes to Photoshop sorcery to writing up a custom CMS, this is where you’ll see my truly nerdy side come out.

featured-shiso
A way for me to explain some aspects about Japanese society and culture.

featured-jambox
I’m a huge music lover, so naturally I needed a way to share my favorite tracks with you all.
