This morning I got a surprise treat; my friend Karen from Tokyo IM’ed me while I was doing some more badge work for JTAF. I have not corresponded with her in quite some time, so it was a real nice surprise to have her little box show up on my desktop with a little greeting. She’s learning the language at an amazing rate over the past nine months, and looks like I lose the pool πŸ˜› We had a Karen pool running way back in the day… of when she would lose interest and come back home. This is technically the ninth month, and she did say she was getting sick of living in Japan πŸ˜› Hey, I think the pool is up to $750. πŸ™‚

Anyway, packing up everything and getting ready to head up to the city right now, and hope to be there before 3pm.
