So tired.
Did "sakura singing" with Jesse and Steve today.
Am totally wiped.
My eyes barely stay open.
Came home on the late train.
Some nice shacho san gave us lots and lots of obento. And beer (Steve and Jesse were happy).
So I'm full of obento and ready to crash.
I met a friend out today and had coffee at a bagel place in Shizuoka that I've never gone to before. It's not something I usually do so...II OMOIDE NI NARIMASHITA.
Sore jya, watashi wa soro soro...
PS: By the way, Steve, Jesse and I had a slow day the other day and had time to burn, so we came home and recorded some of our "oldies" NAMA ENSO with two condenser mics in the middle of the sound room. They're really funny, and I think Steve even says "This is for Florence's blog" at the beginning of one of them. So I guess I'll post them.

OH, and it's SO COLD!!!

PPS: For those people who have been to Sumpu park and would know what I'm talking about...you know that statue of the old guy in the corner of the park? I've always wondered who he was, and just today I actually read the inscription and realized it's Tokugawa Ieyasu. What're the odds! The most famous shogun. Wow. That would explain the picture. (Actually the coolest thing about the picture is the Mito Komon "mondokoro" in the corner.)

Flo, after all you've learned about Jap history I thought you would have known about that. It was his castle you know.

Yeah. I know. Totally huh. See, the thing is, I probably heard the name thrown around in conversation about the castle before I knew who he was. And then I knew who he was and didn't hear anymore about Sumpu and Tokugawa after that. Actually, after I read the inscription and was like "ohhhh"...I remembered having actually like...known that...before. But not to the eye-opening extent that I know it now. If that makes sense.
Yeah yeah I'm just trying to not look stupid.
