Rushing this update out a bit today, since the J-List crew is going out to an izakaya for the official “sayonara party” of one of our employees. For six years Michiko Otsuka, one of the hardworking J-List picking & packing staff, has lovingly wrapped your outgoing packages for shipment to you. Now she’s quitting to start a family with her husband, so we’re throwing her a thank-you party complete with a bouquet of flowers we’ll be presenting to her, which is something the Japanese like to do at events like this. I like getting together with the other J-List staff over beers and sashimi, although we don’t get to do it that often in part due to the popularity of J-List — processing 300+ orders a day kind of eats up our free time. Anyway, thanks for all your hard work Michiko, and best of luck in the future!
Today the J-List crew is going out for some Shabu Shabu.
