Sorry I couldn't skim all the pages I missed, but what happened with your Diet Cokes? All you had yesterday was (iced) water.

It's "Coming of Age Day" in Japan, so if you are 20 years old, today you are an adult! Congratulations! National holiday, banks and post offices are closed, there will be thousands of young people dressed in traditional clothing visiting downtown areas of major cities. There will be Kyudo events in major temples, and the young archers draw long skinny bows to launch flights of arrows into their future! One out of ten might actually hit the target, but hitting it isn't the goal. Doing it 'correctly' is!
That is a national holiday there? sounds like a lot of fun too. I'm looking forward to your photos.

Lapsang Souchong, extra smokey, from McNultey's Tea & Coffee in NY. It's what's needed on a cold, rainy, yucky day...

Sorry, Anh... Really nasty and cold outside... We didn't go to Sanjusangedo as we figured the event would have been canceled because of the heavy rain. The Kyudo takes place outside the Temple with no overhead protection. And with the temperatures being close to freezing, all the young people would be wearing overcoats over their kimono and hakima. Not much of a Kodak Moment... My guess is that they will go to lunch and then to karaoke for the rest of the day.

Perfect for a wet, cold, miserable day. But we've been pretty nice here, if a bit cold. (-3 C.) So my tea today has been Song Zhong Dan Chong from TeaSpring. A nice Oolong from the Guangdong Province that tends towards the black side of the spectrum.

This evening, however, several glasses of La Frenz 2011 Sauvignon Blanc.

Please! Coke Zero, not Diet Coke.

I'm off caffeine for January.

My cup is empty. In fact, no cup! I must go and get a cup (well, a pint glass, really) and fill it with iced water.

Everything sorted now and things will be quieter for a couple of weeks and then our new puppy arrives! So exciting! We have been dogless for a year and a bit now, so it will be lovely to have another one.
Ohhh puppy! Awesome. It sounds like a good hectic.

You seem to keep loosing your ice. Might want to try a leash. Just a thought...

Milk again. It's only 7 pm here but I'll call it a day and go to bed now (an exam done terribly has that effect). See you guys tomorrow

Oh that's what it is! Coke zero, that's right... So you have a theme for beverage :-o

It was the one time in my life when I though I would actually go crazy trying to keep up with all the reading.

Good luck! I took the easy way out and did two at the same time just so I wouldn't have to go through it twice. It took an extra year, but it was worth it as I was allowed to combine my thesis to satisfy both.

I decided I didn't want to work and went straight into a PhD program. Hard work but a good amount of fun and learning took place.
