..So here's some weird writing I found in a notebook, ca. September, 2003.

Fit to swim with a skull full of wishes,
scissoring down the street
Shrugging a sideways satchel of sand

You're shaking your head and watching your feet
I wear the roof on my head like a crown

How many nails would hold down my shoes,
my hair swaying like an arrangement of leaves
The sun on your scalp like a looking glass

What grade of silk was I once tailor-made from?
What kind of insect do I want to be?
Shaking my hips and watching the window
You watch the clock and forget how to sleep

(I'm just like the steel ball on black and white tile
Watching you watch the clock with one big fish eye.)

Whatever that means. Don is in Osaka with the Yamamoto (owner of Wheelers), and I'm trying to do anything but study. I'm taking a Japanese test Sunday; Don is, too. The difference is that he can pass the one he's taking. Mafumi says I have nothing to worry about... but when we check my 2-kyuu practice tests, she doubles over laughing.

How about a blurry photo?

Akane, Sachiko, Muyan, and Don around Oji-Koen, Kobe

Time to stop procrastinating...

ooh! the evil JLPT. I've never taken it myself, but I would try to do the 2 kyu too, even though it looks like a bitch... even japanese people are like...'what the hell are they asking?!...' >_

Hehehe, I took 3 kyu last year, and it was far less evil than I thought it would be. But this year I'm in way over my head! Oh well, it's my own (un)doing...

Hey! Good luck with the pictures. Stop procrastinating! ;-) 私、日本に二年半勉強していた。日本に来るまえ、二年間勉強したけど、マジメでわな買った。その試験は、絶対失敗よ! It's fun, though...

Hey chu_hi!



P.S. 日本のどこにいるの?僕はズット関西の方に(京都と大坂)。まり子のフルサトは鳥取県だけどね(そこにも一ヶ月ほど住んでいたが、本当にすることは何もなかったよ!)。

If you can't read this just let me know! :)

Ms. chu_hi-san


こん間写真見たよ、全部!素敵だった。実は砂丘に行くチャンスが全くなかったよ(鳥取に住んでいたのに)。ウラヤマシイ! 「sniffle」 まあ、今度で、今度で。。。

関西はエエやろう、関東よりも!(; 「僕は、関西弁でしゃべろうとするとアホみたいとチャウ?」ああ、京都にまた行きたいな。今年の夏かね?
