Ooops, I did it again.

Yep, went looking for a photo again, caught a virus within minutes, had to reformat.

Why is it so frickin' hard to find a simple picture of a beautiful Japanese woman fully clothed in a pretty floral pattern dress and with a mysterious farawy look in her eye?! Why oh why?!

Then, I really thought I had the answer: Search in google, but only click on the Cashed page. If I'm not sure if it's a porn site then I can safely surf it! And if I find what I want - and it's not a porn site - I can just Back into google and hit the active link. That'd protect my harddrive from the insidious talons of spambots, eh?

No-o-o-o-o! Turns out that Google's "archived" cashed pages still bring in those page's automated crapola. Cra-a-a-a-p!!

Anywho, I've finally given up on finding an appropriate photo to accompany my crappy poem. You'll just have to picture her in yer head like I do.
Sorry. I'd just love love love to put up a pretty picture but, y'know, I'm kinda sick and tired of reformatting my whole frickin' harddrive in such an obviously abject search.

But lemme give it one more try...

[time elapsed: 12 minutes]

...ooooo-kay, went looking for a fully-clothed Asian angel to show ya and all I came with was this:


I hereby surrender to the gods of Propriety and Caution. I will go no further in my quest for just one stinkin' jpeg of a classy Japanese woman in a flowing floral robe.

Crikey. Ted, help me out here! I don't want girls in bikinis, I want women in splendorous dresses! My kingdom for a back-lit beauty in a red patterned evening gown that's as light as the breeze and as graceful as a clock.

Don't send me URLs, guys and gals. If ya can, send me a jpeg!!!!!!

(BTW, my REAL post for tonight -- on the American Dream and exactly it is -- was erased by a two-hour blackout caused by lord knows what. Maybe I'll try re-writing it tomorrow...]

Hello! Just stumbled upon a link to your blog on another blog. I downloaded many photos of lovely jap women from the web, quite a while back, to study the detail of their kimonos for a painting I was working on at the time. Still have them (virus free I promise!) if you still need, several would flatter your poem nicely. Where to send? I can't find any contact info!

Sorry guy, I've been looking! I think I know what you want, but haven't been able to find anything like it. What's with all the porn on internet anyways? I never knew...
