Weekend of Frustration

Keitarou as Kyuusaku/Jetblack

jetblack reports on his weekend of frustration that has a happy ending.


Julia and I went chair shopping over the weekend. The chair I had been using since last 2003 finally killed my back and so she and I traded chairs since I’ve been experiencing a lot of back pain while using my old one. Julia was using my even older black chair for sitting, and ever …

Monday Grumbling

Monday, Monday… guh. I guess it doesn’t really matter what kind work starts on… it’ll always feel like a Monday to me. When I worked weekends and my first day was a Friday, Friday became like Monday to me. And what sucked about working weekend for me was the fact that I had to go …
