mt3 Francois arrives

17:44 Friday 22 September 2017 JST

Playlist for Marble Track 3 now has four videos.

Once I got the screwdriver upright, it went quite quickly to get all the screws in. Even so, it took two hours to do the screwdriver part in the video above.

right about now

10:37 Wednesday 20 September 2017 JST

I am in famous coffee shop SB in Lazona and have just watched New Rockstars breakdown of Rick and Morty Season 3 episode 7 after compiling a list of 6 phone numbers of men I will call tomorrow morning (tomorrow night for them) to confirm their planned participation in a new set of 6 Virtual Integration Group calls I will be semi-organizing starting in October.

Before that, I walked with Chika to the station on her way to work after our lesson in Zavas building.

Letterman and the fast

11:37 Tuesday 19 September 2017 JST

Yeah so I ate too much yesterday and planned to fast today. But Letterman appeared and ripped the E from his sweater and Tariq took me to brunch after our lesson. I walked too close to my next lesson and was spotted so now I am at B where I will teach at 2pm, about to chow their scrumptious lunch. Oh, and all of this was after I discovered the lunch delivery was not cancelled yesterday for the holiday. Yesterday’s lunch was still waiting this morning.

headed home from Osaka

21:10 Saturday 16 September 2017 JST

Simon drove me to Shin Osaka station so we could chat an hour longer. The last train for me to get home tonight leaves at 9:23pm, but I was able to get the 9:03pm train. Yay!

Simon gave me a set of weights, including one which he found discarded on a hiking trail. We hiked up the trail, found the weight still there, collected it and cleaned it up in his shower.

He wanted to give me dumbells, but after I asked what would be good for my lower back, he suggested a T-bar kettlebell.

I put this leaf down but before it could grow much past the pics shown here, it got cleaned up by the annual clearing done by city workers.

After the annual clear cut seemed to be complete, I found a spot that had not been cleared. It is still in the same park, but on a sidewalk, so maybe it will be clearcut by a different team. But for now, let’s see how these leaves enjoy the spot:

rafting yesterday with Simon

08:35 Saturday 16 September 2017 JST

Arms are sore after rafting yesterday, but generally had a great time. Got dumped a couple of times, and banged up my knees a bit on rocks, but I was wearing a helmet, so no worries.

I am thankful my phone is waterproof!
