The insoles are working I think.
Back to Random Walk last night, still no Master and Commander so I got some Patricia Highsmith.

Arisa is in the running for my favorite student ever. She is super cool and speaks to me like a human being. She also isn't scared to talk in class and try things that are difficult. Some other girls don't like her because she has confidence. Go Arisa, Go!
I went to Cafe Du Monde in Kyoto Eki last night. Yes. That sentence was correct. It is so weird. It has this fake lattice work with New Orelans street sings. It closes at ten. The last time I was at Cafe Du Monde-the real one-it was the morning after Christmas with Mom and Tommy. The one here has paper cups. Fucking fakers. If it isn't anytime of day and you aren't dodging bird shit.....plus the waiters aren't Vienamses. And this is Asia.

I will post Ed's engagement party pictures and videos when I get a computer I can do it from.
That's right; Ed's engaged.
Tearing through the Patrick O'Brian Master and Commander series. I couldn't recommend it any more highly. It gets better and better. Writing wise the man is on par with any of the big guns, Pynchon included. He is a fiend and an amazing read. 16 more books to go.
I just got mail from Mellani, who I used to work with at Friend's (the worst fucking) International Preschool (in the world.) She said her doctor made her quit and gave her a letter for the evil Yukari saying she had to leave for health reasons.
The guesthouse now is full of craziness. There is a woman in the room next to me (who is eating lunch next to me as we speak) who won't talk to me but was yesterday chanting empatically until she would collapse in a fit of coughing and then begin again. There was a huge rainstorm outside and she would raise her tone and go up an octave and then i would hear a cough and some banging around. I started laughing to myself and saying, "She's exploded." The highlight of my day was that "S.W.A.T." came on TV in dubbed over Japanese. It is hot. I smell all of the time and I have one pair of pants because Koji is on a business trip and I can't get to my stuff. I am also being stung by mosquitos. It could be worse. I am not broke. Unfortunately I realized that all of my freinds (well most) are girls, so I don't really have anyone to just go hang out with. Girls require you to do stuff.
It is 900 degrees and I wake upt o bells from the temple next door. Yesterday monks were pacing around outside singing.
attempting to silence the voices in my head.
