Is there still a Mister Donuts in Keene, NH? My first MD experience was that one run by a Chinese family in the 80eith. Wonderful products there. Hope it’s still there.
At http://PuriCam.com/ you can take Purikura Online with your WebCam.
I just visited your website through Facebook..
. would you be interested in becoming weblog partners?
I simply wanted to say your site is one of the nicely laid out, most inspirational I have come across in quite a while. Thx! :)
mr. donut needs to come back home to usa, tim hortons will never be a donut shop!
This blog was great. I started reading it back in 2005 while going to college and studying Japanese linguisitcs. I think I popped in “avoiding life” on a winter day into google and found your blog. This has definitely been a great look into the JET program which I was looking into, but ended up not doing.
If I ever get bored in IT I’ll certainly make sure to enlist in JET or something else to change it up. Your story and perspective has been intriguing. Enjoy your life in Toronto - it’s a beautiful city.
I worked in Aomori 2002 till 2003. When I got back I found that I missed Aomori and my friends immensley. Your website helped ease the blow of “real life” back home. Especially because I could watch your videos and remember what a Japanese aparto looked like, or what the snow was like or how boring work could be at times! Thank you so much for your website. Please add me on facebook!
is anyone know how much is the franchise cost of Daiso?? 6 stores u can find in Malaysia already.
Dude, a job? A car? A wife? A life? You sold out…
Just kidding. Hope everything is going well and I enjoyed your insights while they lasted.
I was sitting on my computer, fingers frozen over the keyboard as I tried to determine why, exactly, I wasn’t doing any of the things I needed to do.
I attempted to justify by lack of motivation with, “I’m just… avoiding life right now. Hm. I wonder if that is a website. It should be.” So I typed in avoidinglife.com and- viola! Sorry to have caught you on the last day that your site is going to be in existence, but it’s nice to know that there was someone else out there who, at least for a time, also avoided life.
Glad to hear things are going well for you, random stranger. I guess it’s time for me to stop avoiding life and just… start living it… agh.
I followed your site pretty consistently when you were in Aomori. Good luck in your future endeavors and congrats on all of your successes. Thanks for the entertainment.
Hey Luke! Thanks for your kind words. It was largely your participation and the involvement of other Aomorians that made this site so much fun. I’m not saying that I will never blog again, but should I start up again on a regular basis I think it will need to be something different from this. I guess we shall see. Kate’s told me about bumping into you and I very much hope I have the pleasure of seeing you again. Maybe we can go bear hunting in High Park sometime. ;)
Hi Jamie, it’s been a great ride. I wonder how many people can say–as I can say–that they have read your Avoidinglife blog in its entirety. Well, all good things come to an end and I’m glad to see that in this case its a happy end that doubles as a happy beginning. Congratulations on getting a life ;-)
Perhaps we’ll see you around town (we’ve already had the pleasure of bumping into your wife a couple of times).

You made tremendous great ideas here. I done a research on the subject and learnt most peoples will agree with your blog.
You made fantastic nice points here. I performed a search on the issue and discovered almost all peoples will agree with your blog.
Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
Thanks for the great post,i love to read articles that are informative and beneficial in nature.
You have done a marvellous job by exploring this subject with such an honesty and depth. Thanks for sharing it with us!
Hi there, I found your blog on Google while seeking for first aid for a heart attack and your post looks very interesting for me.
hehe yes I agree with your post here. At first, I wasn’t sure.
Ah, I’m glad I added you to my bookmarks, otherwise I would have missed this post! Thanks for this.
Great Post. I add this Blog for sure to my bookmarks.
Mr. Donut was much better than Dunkin Donuts.
the entry is good!
Japanese school rules are sometimes really stupids y’know… they tell you even how to behave during summer break, What the hell? that’s really silly…
Though, I like the uniforms… I’ve studied all my life in a school that has uniforms and it obviously easier than having to deside every morning what to wear, and it makes you have at least one talk with everyone to know their personalities (if there were not uniform, personality through clothes would be a lot easier to guess)
Besides you don’t have to buy as much clothes as you would if you didn’t have a uniform.
I agree with the author. Thanks
My wife and I have always considered Mister Donut to have the best donuts. One of our first dates was discussing physics (yeah, both of us have science backgrounds) over hot cocoa and donuts at a Mister Donut. We actually live near the only remaining Mister Donut in the US (according to Wikipedia). Since Dunkin bought MD, their donuts are pretty-much the same, though, so that’s a good thing. They are so much better than those gross Krispy Kreme things and way better than any grocery store or local donut place. Why? They are not as sickening sweet, and (especially) they are not heavy. You can eat three or four MD donuts and not feel like a rock is sitting in your stomach. Long live Mister Donut!
hey there i’m trying to figure out who took/owns this picture of the roller coaster with the stars on it? i really want to use it on a record cover and i need to talk to them about permission etc. any ideas?

How much to pay for franchise.

My mom needs her car pimped up
I am more then proud of their culture and school rules. I am now studying to become a teacher and hopefully make a change to school life and Japanese and Korean schools are an inspiration to me.
ah, school rules. got into trouble when i had my earrings in. also, no gum chewing, thats a big no-no…found out the hard way from the vice principle. uniform is a big thing, no rebeling about uniforms.
I have been searching for “the Vinegar Man is a long time dead, he died when he tore his Valentine” for 66 years! My 6th grade teacher read the poem to us and I may be crazy but I loved it. I can’t believe I’ve found it! I had no idea who wrote it or how to find it until I got going on the computer.
I’m fifteen (year 10) and am from australia and I am writting a story that takes place around the world. My main focus is Toyko, Japan because of all the wonderful culture they posses. I think Japan school rules are amazing, half the students at my school don’t even remember their own natural hair colour let alone wear the approriate school uniform. I wish to know so much more about Japanese school and culture for my own personal gain and cultural understanding.
I’m off to write. Bye xx Danika
