Ipse enim verus est Agnus, qui ábstulit peccáta mundi

Qui mortem nostram moriéndo destrúxit et vitam resurgéndo reparávit.

Et hoc vobis signum…

…Inveniétis infántem pannis involútum, et pósitum in præsépio.

(From the Gospel according to St. Luke)

A very happy Christmas to you, gentle reader, as well as to your family and all your loved ones.

Oh, happy solitude

Not everyone will view the trend described in this recent Japan Times article as positive, but I certainly think it’s an encouraging development.

After all, it’s no mystery – at least to those who know me – why I dine out at Ichiran so frequently whenever I holiday in Japan. (Here’s a review I wrote of one particular Ichiran branch; note that the seating arrangements described there are standard across their branches.) They’ve got delicious Hakata-style ramen, true enough. But more than that, the individual booth seats allow me to enjoy my meal in near-complete privacy, without having to look at another human being … or worry about anyone else looking at me.

As an incurably anti-social traveller, the prospect of being able to limit my interactions with the rest of humanity to the barest minimum is welcome news indeed. (^_^)

Pascha nostrum immolátus est Christus, allelúia

Itaque epulémur in ázymis sinceritátis et veritátis, allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.

I don’t do Valentine’s Day. Let’s watch a video of Seungjae instead.

You are welcome. (^_^)
