Inbetween travels, work and final thesis ramp-up, much happy-happy-fun times with friends in Kyoto…

The naming process for our newly adopted pet dragon (a Water dragon, as befitting of the year) was not without difficulties…

My beloved immediately veto’ed Drako, Draky or any similarly obvious variations. She did not share my enthusiasm for Robert either, putting it down as “lacking in fierceness”. However, in the end, we agreed that the only appropriately fear-inspiring alternative we could think of, Siegfried, may inflict needless existential trauma on our pride and joy (you try naming a kid after one of the most notorious slayer of its species, see what it does to its psyche growing up).

Say hi to Robert, the fearsome dragon!
