Owen Wade, a former jet has asked us to help promote his zany new book called Irked by Kirk! It’s a collection of more than 100 letters and responses written to huge corporations and famous people alike. Have you ever wanted to know what the CEO of Honda thinks of human cannonballs? How about Kobayashi Air Fresheners response to new scents like “Recycled Lard”? Of course you do! Check out a preview of his book on Amazon Japan. If you like what you see, please help advertise by buying the book through Kickstarter!

Hello everyone! Today we are promoting an Easter Egg Hunt in Uryu on Saturday, May 18th. If you think you can help out, please join the Facebook event below!
I officially and cordially invite you all out to my sleepy little town to participate in my first big event, the notorious/fabulous Uryu Easter Egg Hunt.
If you can volunteer for several hours, on Saturday, May 18th, I would be incredibly grateful, as would the small, adorable children of Uryu.
From 11 am to 12:00 will be the prep work, such as stuffing eggs with candy, preparing basket-making materials, hiding the eggs in the park, etc.
At 12:00 we will have a lunch or snack break.
At 1 pm the little ones will arrive, us ALTs will assist with basket making, I will give a short presentation on Easter, introduce the ALTs, explain the egg hunt rules, do the actual egg hunt itself (which will take place in a park), open all the eggs and special prizes, have egg dyeing, and all the little ones should be on their way by 3 pm!
I plan on having an after-party/early dinner after the clean-up, and if anyone needs a place to stay for the night, my tiny house has a few nooks and crannies to fit at least five or six people for the night. I have a few sleeping bags, so let me know if you need one. And you can always sleep in the bathtub or genkan if you’re desperate.
Please invite other ALTs if I’ve forgotten anyone on my list! I hope you can make it, and please don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions.
EASTER EGG HUNT!!! Should be awesome!
