$1.25/hour, get a neighborhood kid to randomly move your computer mouse and answer a few e-mails.

(Was so much cheaper before inflation.)

AI = shows video of a person that looks like you, and use voice changing software (can train to your voice in under ten seconds) so anything the kid says sounds like you.

Disclaimer: I am not actively using this on all my meetings. Promise.

Disclaimer 2: Meetings cost $3 extra per hour.

Off topic.... laundry and bills day

now the question is when do I switch off wk vacation mode…no way today!!!
today is bill pay and laundry day… stupid reality and bills from shopping in japan :shopping: :japanese_castle:

budgeted almost everything expect didn’t consider all the shopping… a little high but was hella convenient…if anyone does spend a long time in Japan and doesn’t want to carry stuff back …

I used my tenso account and takkubin to ship almost everything from all over Japan (including kyuushuu and hokkaido) - using the stores or hotels mostly directly to the tenso address…that’s not horribly expensive…surprisingly cheap…even if you have to spend a couple of bucks on a box…

much easier than carrying around stuff…just don’t ship anything that’s restricted…thankfully I was there long enough one item that had scented stuff (possibly flammable) was restricted…so had them send it back to me at my hotel I was going to be in a week later…worked out ok…

The only downside for tenso that I have found is DHL is always cheaper by a lot… but I can’t really use DHL because they have all these restrictions and rules and want website addresses for so many products anything at all…which I guess I could do but …not really feasible…so have to actually pay more for EMS…but overall still easier than having to carry around no joke … 7 large boxes of things, omiyage, xmas gifts and what not…

If the budget allows and you are gonna do a lot of shopping, definitely would recommend using takkubin+tenso…

For those of us who missed it, are you still taking addresses to send Japanese goodies to?

If it’s too late, maybe I can entice you with an AI-generated Takagi-Santa?

Only kidding, of course!

I just realized Ayumu and Nishikata are both trying to win in a match with their romantic partners, albeit for different reasons. I can’t believe it took me this long to notice that common theme haha

I feel your pain Nishikata

I’m glad you enjoyed your trip! I know you were really expecting it and that it was a bit of a pain to get it to happen due to japan’s travel laws. Sounds like you found a nice way to get all the shopping done, though with so much convenience that’s how they get you! hahaha

Thanks for the vocab @shuly !

Thoughts on 年末②

A からかい放題 ! That’s pretty daring :upside_down_face:

They do seem equally happy at the end of the chapter, but I would still give the edge to Nishikata since he’s the one who suggested a last showdown. Nothing could have made Takagi more happy at that moment !

It’s true, he won before the game started, maybe that’s also why Takagi thought up that game, she wanted to give the gift back haha

Hey! Just dropping by, since this seems to be the current active thread, to say hello and thank to everybody for keeping this going :slight_smile:
I’m currently reading this as my first pure Japanese media and enjoying it a lot, reading 5 chapters a week. I just got done with volume 1 and following along the old discussion threads from last year.
Knowing that these keep up until at least this point is really encouraging. I hope to be able to catch up before this is all over :smiley:

Not super relevant to the thread, but felt like dropping by. See y’all in however long it takes me to catch up, probably.
