Wonderful presents from wonderful people for my birthday!
A gave me a copy of Banana Yoshimoto’s Lizard. This copy is from the Snake Pit, which gives it added (senti) value 🙂 L can make a career wrapping presents. Look at the three butterflies! It was a gift in itself and it matched my bed sheet pretty well. What was inside is coffee goodness for my coffee press:
The text in the box and the Saimaza website are in Spanish so I had to bother L for the translation:
Another fantastic brand of the best Spanish coffee where only the finest beans are used. A 50/50 blend of torrefacto and natural beans are roasted exactly to perfection and then ground finely to create an intense flavour full of personality.
My senior editor gave me a handy pink Japanese-English English-Japanese dictionary. Sugoi desu ne!
