Hello, Tamago Kake Gohan, Your Time Has Come
"Tamago gohan—rice mixed with a raw egg—was one of the very first recipes I learned, and it's Japanese comfort food at its simplest. All it takes is a bowl of rice and an egg to break into it, perhaps seasoned with a little bit of soy sauce, salt, and MSG. Whip up the rice with chopsticks and the egg will turn pale yellow and foamy, holding the rice in a light, frothy suspension."

Japanese pens and stationery. They get a much thinner Pilot G2 than we do, 0.38mm vs. 0.5mm. I loves me a bit of stationery porn.
