Dead *splat*

hungry

current mood: hungry

It's lunchtime, and I'm already dead. Not good. >_<; The male parental headed off today for good food, lots of pollution (okay, maybe not a good point), lots of books, shopping... oh yeah! And to visit family. :P Online check-in for Air Canada is all right - a bit weird, but workable.

Due to the female sibling's boss having something come up with her family, the FSU has to do some OT this week. As as result, I didn't get my traveller's cheques today, and rather than being driven, I ended up walking to the salon for my haircut. ^^; While the FSU did offer to leave me her car, it's a 20 min fast walk to get to the salon and I figured it would be good practise for when I'm in Japan. ......Next time, I'm driving. No question. My legs are tired and hurt. :P Apparently I'm way out of shape. (Doesn't that mean I should do the walk *more*??) ^^;

And so, I'm now in the mild quandary of two weeks and virtually no work to do. I could... work on some translations (19 & 20), finish timing and tweaking ep 4, or I could go on a tangent and either *work* on the manga side, or maybe, dig out my old 'puter, hopefully get it up and running, and sub a CD Drama. (I haven't managed to get that program to work on this system. Not sure why.) ......And what does it say when I wrote all that without even thinking about the fact that it's all for Kokumono and it never even occurred to me to work on any other projects? -_-; Oh well.

Anyhow, all that walking's made me hungry. Time to hunt down lunch. :P

It's a bit up in the air, but generally speaking, we'll be in Tokyo for a few days (Ghibli Museum, Tokyo Tower), going up to Sendai for a couple of days (fresh fish!), then going down to Kyushu (Kurume, Kumamoto, Hitoyoshi, Oita) and finally going to Kansai. This is the general concept, but... ^^; The concept schedule is looking very open and easy on travel, so there's lots of leeway to spend an extra day somewhere, or to skip out a day earlier than planned. ^_^

IIRC, the male parental wanted to go somewhere in Nara and he definitely wanted to go to Mt. Kouya while we're in Kansai. The only thing I remember about Kurume the last time I was there was it has lots of unagi. ^^; I can't wait to see the stone / cliff buddhas. ^___^ That's what I'm looking forward to... that and, if we do go to Mt. Kouya, to go walking through the cemetary late at night again. That place was downright spooky has lots of atmosphere. ^^;

^^;; Of that you have no need to fear. Normally, I love to take photos and will often take ~10+ rolls. ^^;

BTW, forgot to ask if there was anything you wanted me to pick up for you that you might have missed or forgotten (or just want more of). ^_^

Thank you for the script to ep 18. :)

What does Hakumei mean when he says "For all that you're of a noble family, you're poor, but there are lots of officials who are soft on me." though?

Eep. I hope that's not all there is to that line... IIRC, that line in the sub was sent out saying something like "Unlike you who, for all that you're from a noble family, are poor, there are lots of officials who are soft on me." Still a bit awkward but possibly a bit more complete.
