We’re sitting around the room, with about an hour before check-out and heading to the airport.
Now we’re both sick (whee!) and have about another 24 hours to face until we’re home. :-)
Last night I started watching TV when, to my disbelieving eyes, there was yet *another* tuna related show on. This time we followed a real maguro fishing boat. It was riveting, I assure you.
I started to watch Byakkotai, but there was a lot of talking and very little training. The plot was cute in a stupid way, but the whole “joining the Byakkotai” scenario was *exactly* like the “joining JAL as a flight attendant” stuff that had been on the night before in a live-action version of “Attention Please,” a manga oddly enough, that I’ve read.
As I type this entry, there is someone below on the Sumida river water skiing. On Jan.7th. I boggle.
We cancelled meeting Rica yesterday. Wifey was just too sick and I was too worried, and the weather was foul in every way. So the day passed as the wife slept, and I read Marimite doujinshi anthologies and a book that was neither as erudite as the Umberto Eco it aspired to be, nor as easy a read as the Dan Brown it hoped to cash in on. Instead, it was just sort of a constipatedly predictable “ancient secret” suspense mystery.
Keep us in your thoughts, please…it’s going to be a long trip home this time.
But reviews will resume as soon as I get home and settled. And heaven knows I got tons to review! :-)
