Bloganuary: Assumptions

What do people mistakingly assume about you?

I’m a 6’4″ (192cm) American man living in Japan, my whole blog could be about this! ๐Ÿ˜†

I love the record breaking rollercoasters at FujiQ, like DoDonPa, Takabisha, and Fuji Yama, but take me to Tokyo Disneyland and I’m headed straight for Pooh’s Hunny Hunt (Space Mountain can wait).

It’s not that I’m a kid at heart (I’m really not). I have my likes and they don’t often fit the tone and tenor of my voice (you can check out my Gravitar photo in the upper right hand corner to see get an idea of what I mean).

Go your own way.

Yesterday I saw Spiderman and loved it — my face still hurts from smiling so much during the movie — but not a one of my friends is interested in a “child’s” movie, so who do I chat up on Instagram? My best friends 17 year old daughter. ๐Ÿ˜†That might be sad but it is definitely true.

While I very much enjoy talking politics, visiting museums, and playing sports I live in a place where having a cooking YouTube Channel raises a few eyebrows. Men can and do cook here (in Japan) but…

Teriyaki Tofu over rice: Teriyaki Tofu Donburi, click the picture to see the video.

So people mistakingly assume my likes and interests based on my physical appearance. It is what it is and I’m neither mad nor annoyed by it.

Have you seen the new Spiderman? Tell me in the comments!

My other favorite movie this past year was Malignant — it was just a joy to watch! I saw it three times in the theater, and had a blast each time. Make me happy and tell me you loved it. ๐Ÿ˜

        1. I had a lot of fun with WandaVision and Loki. I really like these ‘long-form movies’ because I really like character development and world building (more than the actions scenes).

          Fyi, you don’t really need any of that for the new Spiderman. IF, however, your caught up on the Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, etc) there will be a few Easter eggs for you. ๐Ÿ˜

What's that you say? I can't quite hear you. Do you mind writing that down here? ๐Ÿ˜
