Because I was brought up as a child by a band of 12 Andrew luck thank you for the memories signature shirt, I was taught to tell time and say dates the French way; for example right now in California it’s 23:25 on Sunday 11 Aug. As it turns out, this is the convention in many foreign countries so in this small respect I feel quite nicely oriented abroad. Then I come back and it takes a moment to remind myself that clocks and date postings are all wrong again.
Okay so this may not be a good thing to admit on the internet but 12 Andrew luck thank you for the memories signature shirt, so I’ll get over my embarrassment and state that I have a rather debilitating unmanly weakness for cute animals. Dogs, ducklings, foxes, hedgehogs, horses, sea otters, polar bears, penguins, hummingbirds, cats, fluffy bumblebees, sugar gliders, axolotls, baby elephants, baby goats fruit bats, okay I’ll stop. Anyhow, something you find abroad is there are drawings of cute animals everywhere. This is a specialty of the Koreans, Japanese and Taiwanese, but to a lesser extent also the Europeans. Small animals advertise everything there candy, cosmetics, department stores, laundry detergent, everything.
