Quick Update

(originally posted at

Trip to Vancouver is back on for 7/16 through 7/21.  7/22 is the Flaming Lips show with Tish and Amy.  Last weekend (せんしゅう) hedre and I went to Fort Funston for the first time.  Yesterday (きのう), Tish, David, Jeremy, Fiona and I saw A Scanner Darkly.  This weekend (こんしゅうまつ), I plan on seeing The Legendary Pink Dots at Slims.

Congrats to the Vox Team on the 0.8.0 release.  As usual, the new themes don't disappoint and I'm pleased to see the qotd update.  One thing I'm noticing is that suddenly the compose page has for "link" buttons and four matching "center item" buttons.  Weird.

I'm going to try to limit my Japanese-only entries, as they're just for practice and they seem to bug people.  Instead, I'll work my vocab into regular entries and y'all can just deal with it.  For instance - there's a nifty Shadow of the Colossus statue for $88 - or 10,290 yen (いちまんにひゃくきゅじゅうえん).

Last weekend I also took my first Iaido class.  It's a bit tough on the knees and shoulders, but probably less so than Kendo would be.  I'm more interested in a formal art based on katas and kumite - at least for now.  I had an uneventful fourth of July - stayed home, cleaned house, watched lame movies and made about a billion Japanese (にほんご) flashcards.
