Pre-Golden Week Special Edition  
Ah... Golden Week is here, the non-stop party begins tomorrow (today, time to recover from the week). No more rush hour trains for me until Friday! Woo! \(^o^)/

Aaaanyway, let's see what recent notes I have:

Saw a parking garage near Mejiro station -- a pretty big one. Filled entirely with bicycles (of course, I've seen car parking garages, too, but they tend to have all the cars up inside the building in a big rotating rack thingy. Yeah, things are different here what with all the lack of space and such).

I had another idea for what to put on the sleeve of my track jacket -- マスコット. The way I run, it seemed apt. o_O

I finally had a McPork, and I like it! It's like a tasty breakfast sausage patty in convenient afternoon sandwich form! 200% tasty! ^_^

You gotta wonder how people lived in Japan before the invention of the smart phone -- the iPhone is like the best thing ever on the train... I probably send (at least!) 20 or 30 messages a day every day on the thing, most of them while riding or waiting for trains. It's insanely addictive. Or maybe I'm just addicted to sending email back and forth with ai_hua. O_o

And the last thing -- went to the oral surgeon today, and did some scanning and stuff (I think at this point, I've finally collected the whole set -- ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, and finally CT). He was of the opinion that we shouldn't do surgery yet, because the shadow from the infection that started the whole mess isn't entirely gone yet. Everything's going the right direction, we just need to wait -- he's a lot more cautious than the surgeon I had back in Denver, who was a lot more assembly-line cavalier about the whole process. I'm still probably going to do it here, even at the (somewhat) higher cost (come on exchange rate, you know who loves you)... I would still take a year or so to finish if I tried to squeeze it into visits back home anyway, so even with the delay, it'll still be faster to get it done here.

Okay, cue Katy Perry karaoke:


I had McPork, and I liked it
Taste of that salt and high fat
I had McPork, just to try it
Hope my old heart don't mind it...


I'll have to make you some trading cards to commemorate collecting the whole set of oral intervention tests. "MRI--go!!"

Well, I only got two of those test through dentistry.

(Eeek, dental ultrasound? That sounds... Bad. :)

Actually, I realized that that was probably the case after I typed the comment because dental MRI? That sounds even worse than an ultrasound....

I fully expect you to be liveblogging this, preferably drunkenly:

Oh, how could I ever resist going to see that?

I mean, except for all the obvious reasons.

愛玲's blog
I quickly looked at 愛玲's blog. She writes English very naturally. So I assume her mother tongue is English. I also learned that you seem to influence her to buy a new camera. Lastly, she seems to really like you.

Re: 愛玲's blog
Well, her mom speaks Mandarin (I thought it was Cantonese, but she's more native in Mandarin than Cantonese).

But yes, English is her strongest language right now. Although she can converse in Mandarin, Cantonese, Malay, and still speaks better Japanese than me (although it's still weaker than the rest, I think).

As for the rest... Well. I dunno, it's possible.
