Right next to Mt.Fuji, and full of crazy rollercoasters. 3.5 hours waiting in line for 2 minutes of THIS: Eejanaika You just never know when you’re going to go forward or backward or upside-down.

…well, not really. There are some words that I misread a long time ago, and since then, always mentally substituted the incorrect version every time I saw the word, for years. Then when I actually notice the correct spelling for some reason, it comes as a shock (cognitive dissonance), since I’ve been aware of a […]
