More important things

Today is the day Japan endured an 8.9 earthquake. If you want to donate money, the first organization I’ve heard of that’s accepting remittances is the Red Cross. You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to instantly provide US$10 to the relief and recovery efforts.

And you guys, because I love goofy cats and things that are cute and wonderful and such, I want you to know that MARU IS OKAY!!!

[from Maru’s blog]

たくさんのご心配をいただきありがとうございます。
念のために用意したキャリーバッグで遊んだりと、
まるはいつもと変わらず過ごしています。

Maru is safe.
Thank you for worrying and praying.

Animals have a wonderful ability of helping people through hard times in life. I’m glad to hear that this one cat, who has given so many giggles, and has warmed so many hearts, is still obsessed with sitting in mostly-enclosed spaces. These kinds of little things really do help people move on from major catastrophic events, and so, while I may become infuriated to the point of nearly snapping when jackholes blame nature’s fury on “the gays” and “women,” I don’t get mad at people talking about “frivolous things” like Maru when their world has literally been ROCKED to its core.
