And I offered my new phone a new charm, bought as older ones from Strapya World. It's a hand engraved wood tag that read "kuroudo arisu" (for Claude Alice, my first and middle names). I chose those kanji because tangorin.com says that kuroudo (蔵人) means "imperial records keeper" (my Dad was an archivist and gave me some training in the field); and yume (夢), meaning "dream", as a name is pronounced arisu. Strapya World made a great effort to deliver orders despite the quake; they're located in Kanagawa, south of Tokyo, and confirmed the team was all safe and sound.
I'm not advertising :o) but don't hesitate to check their site, they have so many funny, clever and/or beautiful things.
