Not much has been going on over the past few days, but I figured I might as well say hello.
Okay, so that’s not how I say hi, but one of the Nakano students was taught by an Aussie that the above phrase is a good way to great somebody. Now she won’t stop using it for greetings, and, well… uh…
It’s lame, to put it mildly. No offense to any Aussies who read this, but jeez. “How’s tricks?”
At least “Wassup, sluts?” is alliterative.
I’m about 10 episodes into “Smallville.” I’m not much of a TV fan, and even less of a teen (melo)drama afficionado, but I’m a sucker for a good reinterpretation of pop culture.
I’ve been downloading the show, which is about Superman when he was a teenager, with his powers coming along with his acne and other teen hormones. There aren’t any costumes in the show, but whoever’s in charge of wardrobe always dresses Tom Welling, the actor playing Clark Kent, in blue or red shirts. It’s a nice touch. A recent episode featuring Christopher Reeve was also very well-done. Maybe the boob tube isn’t as lame as I thought.
Seasonally there’s sort of a funky dead period going on. It’s officially the start of spring and hanami season has also begun, but there aren’t gazillions of sakura yet. People are moving out of the gaijin ghetto, which means there’ll be some new faces meandering around the abode. People entering my life and people leaving.
I’m doing some more site tweaking which won’t go public for a while. It seems like everything in the world, from the mundane and personal to international affairs, is going through a giant spring cleaning phase.
I think I need a bigger bucket.
