In support of Operation Diddily Squat!
Ok, I've gone through my views on blogging and such in a few previous boring posts so I won't do it again, but the fact is that I'm not a very hardcore blog reader. I have a few blogs I do like and I do check in pretty regularly on the blogs linked here on my site, but I can be away for one week without feeling like I'm missing stuff.
Personally it's also most pleasant when I find someone linking my blog without me knowing of it (usually start seeing visitors from that site dropping in) and they don't link every blog out there, meaning that they actually liked my blog and that they are a bit selective in what the read. Well, this is recently what happened, I found out that Tokyo Cowgirl started linking me and checked out the site.
Now, she has something really interesting going on here which I follow with a lot of interest. In Tokyo there are a bunch of free English language magazines with events and such, I'm mainly thinking of Metropolis and Tokyo Confidential. If you've ever visited Japan for any longer time I'm sure you have encountered these magazines and they can be pretty informative and useful, but apart from information about events and such they also have personals. Believe me when I say that these personals can be seriously freaky (Cowgirl did a post on that which I recommend) and I'm sure most foreigners living in Japan have at some point amused themselves with the hilarity of those ads. "Who writes these things and what are they thinking?" is a thought that I'm probably not the only one to have had... Well, now we're all about to find out thanks to Operation Diddly Squat (ODS).
With Cowgirl's two constructed persona; "Chloe" and "Ayumi" she will be digging into the depravity of these guys and the entertainment is already pretty high and I believe that it will just get crazier and crazier since this new "Ayumi" personality is very very promising. It's interactive as well since she seems to appreciate suggestions and ideas! Don't miss this, I check in daily in hopes of more hilarity and you should to!
