Heading out for lunch. Indian? Ramen? Thai? Hmmm.
I am enjoying “hard mint candy” containing 100mg of caffeine in each lump. Score!
Woke up! Didn’t choke up! Saw my A-K! It was bro—Um, took a shower and am getting ready to attack the day.
Sitting in Yotsuya waiting to head back home to Koganei. Going to the park tomorrow!

Thinking about heading here for a quick one after work today …
Doing a bit of translation while the baby naps.
Back to the Japanese interface once again. Sigh. It’s not that I can’t operate in the language; it’s that the system can’t remember a thing.

You know, I’ve been pretty drunk a few times in my past, but never so far gone I would fail to notice a drinking buddy sticking a knife in my back.
I need a new train
Getting tired of the Chuo Line totally failing to operate once a week … Here’s the latest. Yet another two-hour commute for me today. At least I got to guide a bunch of FOB foreigners downtown after I found them stuck at Higashi Koganei without the Japanese skills to figure out what was happening.
Yet another web 2.0 thing: me on Tumblr. Not sure what that’s good for.
