Life in Japan 2003/2004 A Busy Week... | Main | Our First Visitor

Fall Weekend - Saturday

Well, Fall is definitely here in Japan. Almost all the leaves have turned, the weather is getting colder by the minute, and every shop has Christmas decorations up. De and I have been very low key since we returned from Hong Kong. This weekend will definitely low key! This week has been very busy for the both of us. De had a week of open houses and I have slowly been climbing my way out from a mountain of work. Don't get me wrong I am very grateful to be working, it has just been all at once.

I am halfway through "Japanese Film", a book about Japanese film history through the 1980's. It is really interesting. I feel I am understanding Japanese culture just a bit more, through it's film industry. Speaking of books, I saw a English language version of of Michael Moore's new book "Dude Where is my Country?" I was kinda surprised because it was just released in the US. It is next on my reading list.

Thanksgiving is this week and De and I are planning a dinner at our place. Unfortuturely, De does not have off from work so it will be a late dinner. I am in charge of everything and I have been looking up recipes online for a few weeks now. We only invited De's co-workers so it will be small but fun. If I can work out the technical issues I will try to web cast it. I will keep everyone posted.

I am using a new desktop blogging client, Kung-Log, which I hope will help me post more frequently. It also does neat things like automatically paste the name of song I am currently listening to in iTunes:

Shadowboxin' from the album "Liquid Swords" by Genius/GZA
