Looking back at New Year’s Day

May 2nd, 2007

This is a post that has nothing to do with Yuri. :-)

Back in January, on the first two days of the year, I, the wife, and our friend and YC staffer Bruce all undertook something called a “Shichifukujin-meguri,” while in Tokyo. That is, we walked around the section of Tokyo called Minato-ku and visited the shrines of all seven of the gods of fortune and the eighth, for their treasure ship. It’s considered good luck to do so. In return for that pilgrimage, I asked for one thing – not to get the usual jet-lag from hell during my trip. And, as I did not, I thought we all held up our ends of the bargain and went home satisfied. :-)

Well, in the last month, I’ve gotten married, got a new job, and been on “the cover” of Afterellen, so I kind of feel like they did a bit more on their side than I have on mine. lol So this is thanks to Ebisu, Daikokuten, Bishamonten, Fukurokuju, Jurojin, Hotei and my especially beloved Benten and their ship of treasure for everything. I promise to give them something nice in return. :-)
