13 Apr 2003: Three Times Ten

A relatively quiet birthday this week although the chorus of Happy Birthday I was subjected to at the office was disturbing. The first thing I did on my birthday was to forget to take my wallet to work. So there you are, the instant I hit 30, I experienced rapid mental degradation. I guess I should just give up on Japanese altogether.

In Japan, we're just passing through this year's Hanami season, where people sit around trees and drink a lot. I actually have pictures of the sakura this time around, so find them below amongst other things.

Hey, look at this: I've made another appearence on the web.

I am reading books, by the way, they're just taking a hell of a long time to read. And yet somehow I have made another Amazon purchase. Will the madness ever end?
