This morning's subway ride, amidst a crowd of armpits, dirty looks, and mystery smells, became surprisingly pleasant when i flipped to a fun-fact feature in the new issue of Wired about "Ito-ke no shokutaku (The Ito Family Dinner Table), Japan's weekly how-to TV show that combines the spirit of productivity blog Lifehacker with the manic energy of Deal or No Deal." Each contestant's urawaza, or "secret tricks," must supremely top those of the others. My favorite one (shown above) increases your flexibility by incorporating Ultraman's signature transformation maneuver.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
