anything. The name was invented on the spur of the moment by a single
individual when she was reserving a public park in San Francisco back

I have the duty and the honor of attempting to portray a Japanese lady
in a manner that honors their heritage and does not give offense. I am
deeply touched and honored by the positive response I have received
from them - and I have a growing, much treasured collection of cell
phone charms that one gentleman from the Barony of the Far West keeps
adding to every time he visits the US. (He has, in turn, been made a
Companion of the Order of the Cheerful Monkey.)
