Home Working and Working from Home

And here we go with the working from home. Kind of looking forward to it. It will force me to clean up the office and get everyting back in order.

Also, I was looking for some files in my personal Dropbox and came across the first three pages of a paper on the Bakumatsu and Meiji Restoration I stared writing before I went to Kyoto last year. I need to pick that back up and turn it into something. I don’t really have a reason for writing it beyond personal interst so I may end up turning it into a series of blog posts in case anyone else is interested.

This whole experiment sure dropped off quickly. Need to get back in the habit, maybe with snaps of handwritten pages just to be a TOTAL hipster

Hayakawa river at Hakone

Still not a Big City Person

Tokyo was OK, but Hakone is wonderful. the montains are stunning and taking the trains and cable cars through them is like going through the green hills of home. I bought an ice cream cone from a lady in Hakonemachiko (I think the shop was named CHAKA) and the five minutes it took to eat while looking at Lake Ashi and the mountains surrounding it were the most peaceful I’ve had for a long time. I am going to come back and spend a couple of weeks visiting the rural areas and leave the loud and flashy streets of Ginza and Shibuya to those that like them.

They’re everywhere!

Awwwright, on the first plane and on my way to Tokyo!


We can’t stop here, this is bat country

Who shot JR?

Overheard in the lunch line: “Oh my gawwwwd hot dogs are disgusting!!!”

Well….we can’t be friends.

If the office is that cold this early they must be expecting a hot day.

Yo, @freekbass and @twrpband need to hook up. Not sure the world could stand the funk. #twrp #freekbass #allfunkychildren

I feel bad about hopping on my phone to check twitter for a second at dinner but the other table has broken out smash brothers or something on the switch…

“There is a guy swimming to the Pont Neuf…” “He’s in Seine.”
