The time has come. Yoko is on a plane, right at this very moment, floating above the Pacific, nonstop NRT --> SFO.
Zoom! Blam! Pow! For --> Ever.
Let me be the first in the umamisphere to welcome Yoko and her wonderful husband Washi to AMERICA. Yoko needs no introduction to the Bay Area as she grew up here, right down the street from me in fact. She moved to Tokyo three years ago, where she took care of her father, slaved away at a ginormous ad agency, met the love of her life, married the love of her life, and ate her way through Tokyo. Beyond.
Tokyo has been a pivotal stopover in the colorful map of Yoko's life, but the time has come. No more dilly-dallying-- it's the end of an era. She's OURS now!!!
Yoko, you are Our Queen To Be (Completely free from infection/ To be used at our discretion). HA! Let's tear shit up!
