a little behind

You know you're a little behind on things when you have email from 2004 sitting in your inbox.

At least that message was not awaiting a reply. The oldest message awaiting a reply is from January, 2006. Erk. I probably have older email sitting in Outlook though.

In unrelated news, I am always amused when Japanese acquaintances comment upon my facile use of chopsticks. People use chopsticks for non-Japanese food too! In contrast, I get surprised when I encounter people who cannot use chopsticks. It's funny what we consider to be 'normal.'

Happy Holidays!

It's been a while since my last post. Work and other things have swamped me, but at least life has been interesting.

I have several New Year resolutions that I am mulling over. There are the usual ones like "get more exercise," "study kanji," "cook more,"and "go to sleep at a normal hour," but one new possibility is "don't sweat the small stuff a.k.a. see the big picture."

Happy Holidays! I hope that you are with the people that you care about, and may there be peace one day soon.
