Creepy Little Japanese Guys

Sometimes I think I'm in a Miyazaki film. That's one reason I came to Japan. More distinctly Japanese photos up on my Flickr page.

The weather's been getting warmer. Yesterday I went out to the [even more] country side to take some photos with Nao-chan and Kris. I kept bugging Kris with questions about f-stops and shutter speeds. We saw some weird cult-like activity, too. Those pictures were all destroyed.

He insists on disgusting me with his native diet.

Listener Mail

I was laying in the hospital bed this morning, getting a big bag of steroids injected into my veins, listening to a medley of my favorite podcasts, when the "Stuff Mom Never Told You" hosts went to "listener mail" and totally read my view on global deodorantationalism. I just grinned in the bed thinking what a super-geek I am (and how I'm totally going to blog about this later).

If anyone heard the episode already, I am indeed the Jeannette from Japan, with paragraphs and paragraphs to share on underarms. I think Cristen (or Molly) loses her breath at one point while reading my edited down letter.

Click here to download the episode, "Do kids need both a mother and a father?" on iTunes. My email is at the 19:42 mark. I talk about Motto's armpits. Hehe.

left hand keitai typing

not starbucks, peppermint tea. after 5 hour iv have to work.
today is a bank holiday so the usual entrance and desk was closed. the nurses are different and busy with other stuff, but it only took one try to find a vein today.
i was worried they were giving me the wrong medicine, but they just did it in the opposite order, with the one that leaves a bad taste in my mouth first, pink one second, and im assuming the huge one next.
my usual nurse is actually 2 of my students' mom, who brings me hot towels for my arm. miss her.
hearing status: same.
great, moaning old man just arrived.

My Neighborhood

Just got my new Canon digital SLR EOS 40D camera in the mail today! Went around my block to take some pictures. The light wasn't great, but I got a few shots. Still figuring the camera out.
