*whi~ne* -_-;

It's the day after. And _I_hurt_. -_-; I'm definitely in much worse shape that I thought. At this rate, Japan's going to be a lesson in torture. >_<;; (Last year was 14 days of forcing aching muscles to keep moving as we walked ~10km per day...). As it is, I think I'll at least do half the walk again next week. I don't know if I'll have time again this week or not. All I can say is, I think I'm sunk. I wonder what I can take with me to ease muscle pain... ^^;


As things stand here, I definitely need to get myself a new hardcopy English dictionary. As useful as my e-dictionary is, and as much as it is the Concise Oxford (as well as the Oxford Advanced Learners'), it's still part of my E-J/J-E/J/E dictionary with jump functions and other weirdness. I don't completely trust it. (I definitely trust hardcopy over electronic). I've also run into at least one spelling error in the e-dictionary too. ^^; My latest "?!?" word is "good night" vs "goodnight" a la ep 3. The e-dictionary has it listed as one word although the J-E shows it as two, and the COD entry (under a one word listing) describes it as two words. This sort of oddness in listings, while potentially useful at times, is also rather confusing. All the editing makes me seriously question spelling, so a solid dictionary is a definite must. >_<;

And... since hezziwig mentioned at some point that she'd signed up for the JLPT, I've been debating whether I want to sign up for it or not as well. Part of me does want to take it and see what the exam is like and where my Japanese is at the moment, while another part of me thinks it's a bit of a bother to travel all that way. The only test centre here is in Toronto, but distance-wise, I think Seattle would be the closest one for me to go to... although I think if I were to go to a US test centre, I'd go to San Francisco. Let's face it, if you have to fly anyway, might as well make it to somewhere you know there are things you want to do... like go to the Napa Valley and Japantown. :P

*sigh* Oh well, what with holidays and such, I don't know if I could afford that sort of expenditure again so soon. Not to mention it's just before Xmas season. While I have a bit more time to think about it, I'm thinking more not. :/


And I think I'm going to call it an early night. The body has been complaining making me quite whiny today. That and this cold weather is making me want to either sleep a lot or cocoon myself indoors. I think I'll work on picking up stitches on the ol' Caravan Robe I'd started working on earlier this spring. It's definitely cold enough to work under wool again. ^^;

Oh, any anyone who's expecting an email reply... -_-; sorry, but I'll reply tomorrow. Today's just not going to happen. Likewise, ep 18's first round of edits should be finished tomorrow.
