Thanks for letting me know

So I just found out today, Wednesday, that I have school on Saturday. Of course I am the only person in the entire universe that didn't know this. I sat down with my supervisor at the beginning of the year, with the school calendar, and wrote down all the special days. Somehow this Saturday was missed. So now I have Monday off. What am I going to do on Monday? No one else has Monday off.

What a pain in the ass.

And it's raining and really muggy today (the worst possible hair day), so obviously God is punishing me for something.

In other news...

Extreme Make-Over: Home Edition has got to be the most tear-inducing show on TV these days. Even before the family is introduced (and their horrible life threatening illness explained), I am all misty eyed and reaching for the tissues.

Thanks Kathy for sending me the tapes.

Feeling Generous?

Why not donate some of that hard-earned money to some worthy causes?? Help my friends Sarah and Kirstin make their fundraising goals. It's really easy to donate online (if you have a credit card).

Go here to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society.


Go here to donate to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Come on, it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Horseshoes up yer arse!!

I'm on top of the world today!! A few weeks ago I found out that I was selected to be a workshop presenter at the recontracting conference in Kobe (AKA free transportation, free hotel, giant piss-up in Kobe). I was pretty stoked.

Then today I found out that I was also selected to be an orientation assistant in Tokyo this summer!!!! Whoooooo whooooo!!

So that means two days in Tokyo in June for a meeting, then 4 days in July. All expenses paid for and I get to help out all the newbies. When I return to Shimane I will be coming with the group A newbies. It will be lots of fun! I can freak them out about life in Shimane!

I wonder who else from my ken is going????

The POWER of the peephole

Among other wonderful things, my new apartment has a peephole.

The value of a peephole in this country cannot be stressed enough.

I've only been in my apartment for about a month now but I have successfully ignored the JW's and the NHK lady (twice)!!

The latest was last night. 9pm on a Monday night! She waited outside the door for a good five minutes. Ringing the bell 4 times!! She knew I was home, all my lights were on. I love this POWER!!!
