So I went to Japan and took all these pics for y'all - I had a big feature planned - and then a Northwest Airlines baggage handler went and stole my luggage. All my photos were gone (along with my souveniers, roller blades, clothes, etc). Three months later my luggage was found in an abandoned barn in the middle of Minnesota, only my socks and these kids food magazines were left and they
smelled like cow poo. But damn-it, I was going to do a Japanese feature so here it is, haiku poems about Japanese kids' lunches: "Crazy Happy Lunch!"

Seaweed haired children,

broccoli for carrot tops.

Clever, not filling.
