Kenji Kawakami

I have to offer one more endorsment, since this book landed on my desk yesterday.

Kenji Kawakami is a genius. You might know him from Sloshed In Translation. He is an inventor of unuseless inventions.

He has a book out in the states now called The Big Bento Box of Unuseless Japanese Inventions, and if you want to read it but don't want to buy it, it will be on the top of the toilet tank in our guest bathroom.

I'm particularly fond of the Duster Slippers For Cats. ("For feline assistance with tedious housework.")

One more thing: Octopuses can walk on two legs.
