Also in my package from Japan:
Dragon socks! These are surprisingly well crafted– the wraparound dragon really wraps around and matches up almost perfectly between the two socks. If you’ve never tried to scan a pair of socks, it’s harder than it sounds.
The socks came attached to this zippy header card. I already knew that “ryu” means dragon, and Google tells me that “maido okini” means “thank you for your patronage”. This guy doesn’t look very pleased about it, but nobody likes having his dialog set in Comic Sans.
Thank you, Wolfie, for the awesome dragon socks.
