Sorrrrrry for the retardedness

I'm in my city, Kuwana. Also, I live in the getto, I literally live on the other (wrong) side of the tracks. Melissa likes it because she says it's exciting and then she adds "but no, really it's scary". So that is why I always leave a light on when I leave because I don't want to come home to darkness. I did laundry today and aired out my futon. I have also recuperated my lost adapter! True to Japanese nature no one stole it or moved it. I have been trying to be less carefree because I sincerely believe i could leave my laptop here right now, go for a walk around the mall and no one would touch it. In fact, I think someone might even clean it. Ok I'm exagerating, but my point has been made. I miss some things about home but I haven't been completely homesick yet. There are always people to meet and places to see so the only days I stayed in were to nurse a cold I had at the beginning of the week. For the cold I blame the bipolar weather, it's hot and humid one day and the next it rains. Can't wait for winter, oh yes minus 2 degrees and I'll pull out a scarf! My friend Melissa is buying winter boots tomorrow, I think I'll call my sneakers winter boots.
Besides settling in there isn't much else to write here. Like I tell some people, I make a million mental notes every day but it's not something I can sit and write about. When I see a beautiful scene I almost want to keep it to myself so as to not diminish it in any way. Hmm, I'm starting to sound a little too poetic for my taste. Pictures will be added when I have the internet at home. So in about a month. There are some on facebook and for those of you without that particular social networking tool (ahem, Steve) then use someone else's account (ahem, Dan or Marjo)

Blog ya later fellow dorks!


  1. You said you'd be in Nagoya! But looking at google maps, it looks like your in a kind of suburb of Nagoya... is that sort-of right?

  2. By the way... do you find it possible to survive without knowing the kanji characters?

  3. I have a blogger account, which neither Dan nor Marjo has. Thus, it would be unfair to give a headstart to those fakebookers who don't give a damn about Microsoft !
    During the whilst, I shall count my fingers 'til I can see your face on a photography.

  4. Happy b-day!
    I hope you enjoyed it to the fullest.
    We miss you at GIT.
    Take care.
    Carlos B.

  5. You don't need to know Kanji much. I get by fine, knowing hiragana and katana will get you most essential services. For the rest, hand gestures and smiling go a long way :D
