Note to self

If you have arranged a week-long trip to Las Vegas and your girlfriend has decided not to go because she can't get the time off of work and is afraid that US Immigrations will harrass her more and more each time she shows up, do not casually mention it to her when you get your plane tickets, make your hotel reservation, etc.

Yes, I really was that insensitive.

I couldn't help myself. The plane ticket was considerably more expensive than I was expecting. And there was the refuelling fee, and a new one I don't remember seeing before -- a United States Entry Fee. Shit, they charge me $70 just to enter the country now? This xenophobia thing is starting to bother me. (Do the Canadians get hit up for this too?)

Hi James,

I am a poker player who is coming over to Tokyo for business at the end of June for a week. I will be staying at the 4 Seasons and wanted to know if there were any local tournaments in the vacinity even short cab away? Help and any advice would be appreciated. I am arriving on Saturday 24th and leaving Friday 30th. Not really fussed about the buy-in. Something mid-range that doesn't attract schools of fish would be good say £100 or £200 buy ins.

My mail address is
