Hi Peoples!!

Hi hi! I'm knitticism, and I've been interested in Japanese culture my whole life. I'm currently a college student, so my meals are taken care of there, but the semester's almost over, and I think bento would be a fun way to bring my lunches to work. I have to watch what I put in my bento though. I recently caught swine flu, and the virus settled in my heart, causing myocarditis (a swelling of the heart muscle). As I (hopefully) heal up from that, I need to be on a low sodium diet- around 2,000 mg a day or less.

Hi from Norwich

Hallo from Norwich. I'm Francesca, AKA Stefafra, I'm 40 years old, Italian, and have lived in various bits of Europe, including The Neterlands, Switzerland (both in Zuerich and Fribourg) and now I live in the UK.

In short, I'm a plant pathologist (and to steal a joke from somebody else, no I don't make autopsies on plants). When I'm not mistreating plants I cook, and as I have a long fascination with all things Japanese I landed on this wonderful pages.
