Just Another Day

I don’t have much to write about today.* In fact, I’d describe it as pretty uneventful. There’s nothing quite like a typhoon unleashing all its fury square on your little town to keep you homebound. They even mentioned our town by name in the news. Ah, the virtues of being directly in the path of an angry storm.

No big deal though, it’s only the 7th of the year, and at least 20 more need to happen before we can all breathe a sigh of relief that global-warming hasn’t changed the normal weather pattern Japan has come to expect during its long history of existence.

The most productive things I’d done today include:

  • Reading the Bible
  • Hanging out with my husband
  • Studying Japanese
  • Cooking, laundry, and so forth
  • Organizing my browser’s Favorites folder.
Time well spent.

*Translation: I have plenty to write about, but I haven’t been able to wrap my brain around their re-telling of late.**

**Me… brain dead… uuurg

"Organizing my brower's Favorites folder."

Huh, we're still on the same wave length! I was doing that same thing just last night. I've been using Opera's browser for a couple of months or more now and it's much easier to manage the favorite links, even ones from IE. I *love* tabbed browsing.

I'm sure Ash thinks that you spent your time well since he made the list...

So, what's it like being in a typhoon? I mean, it doesn't sound like you're having to hide in the bathtub or anything... are they just really bad storms for the most part or is it worse than that?

From what I've read (not all that much), the Pacific typhoons aren't any different then they've ever been, it's just the Atlantic storms that are being effected by global warming... cause that makes so much sense...

Well, don't blow away!

I love seeing that our common wave length hasn't changed :)

Being in a typhoon is basically being in a really gusty rainstorm. Most of the damage that happens is due to flooding and mudslides (the earth itself is against us...)- sometimes the wind gets really bad, but for the most part it doesn't seem to whip itself up into a fatality-inducing, building-demolishing element like its Atlantic cousin.

We take no (or at least very little) notice of them now, unlike the days when we had to bike in them to quell our hunger.

Yay for having a car!
