It's late Tuesday night here....all but moi' are sound asleep...one is snoring loud enough to wake the freakin' dead, but, that's not really too much of a problem....I've gotten used to it. Besides, I figure that here in a little bit, I'll be too tired to really care and just fall into my futon!!
It started raining a little earlier and that was just the proverbial icing on the 'weird weather cake' we had for dessert today. Yesterday and today the weather was positively muggy. Many people are already talking about their cement walls in their entrance ways sweating....and that doesn't usually happen until much later!! And just so you know....to those of you in the eastern part of the States that are expecting more snow to be dumped, I'm sending you warm, spring-like thoughts. I hope they help.
So....I have in mind a great post with nice pictures telling you about our 10 km. hike we took on Saturday on one of the old roads (think waaay old, like over 400 years old!!) that is around the city...but....I'll do that on Thursday, which is a holiday here.....I need to sleep and be rested and whoohoo energetic for classes tomorrow. Elvis is about to leave the building, folks...but before he does......
On the densha (streetcar). Koji was being really loud because he was actually sitting still and could feel the heated seat. (On a cold day, that is oh so very nice!) Oh....and his chattering? Yeah...that was about the only sound on the streetcar, other than the driver announcing each stop.....and the lady, right there, on the left..rustling her plastic bag. That really bothers me.
Issei brought this home on Friday. A 95 on his Social Studies test. For the first time ever, his was the second highest. (His friend, Kohi, always scores the highest....no one is surprised about that, but...he said everyone was about his! He just smugly chuckled.)
This reminded me of a professor I had at university....the class was Educational Psych and we all had to take an IQ test to see what it was like. After calculating our scores, the prof looked at me....took the paper and re-added the scores, then said, "Ms. Willson....you are a lot smarter than what you look....is this a game you are playing?"
