Back in the old blog, The Level 8 Buddhist, I used to have a running gag called the “Ladies Man”. A co-worker who was very good with photography would often take photos of me in embarrassing situations, and I would title those blog posts “The Ladies Man” because the ladies couldn’t resist me (sarcasm, of course).
In the spirit of New Year’s Eve, I recovered some of the photos recently and wanted to post them for nostalgia. I was a little fatter then, but lost some weight when I moved to Ireland, and then more weight when I came back to the US after I started going to the gym.1 The first and fourth photos are not taken by my co-worker but are inspired by his “undercover” work.
1 Thanks to holiday stress, work and JLPT, I’ve gained it back again lately. Looking forward to eating smaller portions in Japan next week.
