It has been four years since that earthquake. It snowed that day, when I was on the way home from work. It snowed today. In March. It's strange. It's still an event that pops into my head now and again even though I was not directly effected. It is good for us to remember. I also remember this every year. While being safe in my home and able to have the news on my TV was not a serious threat in any sense, I have no idea why anyone thought having those AC Japan commercials on constantly was a good idea. They still haven't left my head.
But today is also another anniversary. Chrono Trigger turns twenty today, which means it is old enough to drink in Japan. I cannot think of any themed cocktails at the moment, but I know one of them has to make you feel refreshed, but still hungry.
