Just on the off chance that anyone is still wandering around these dusty halls looking for photos, I’ve started anew at tumblr. The older material will probably not make it onto the net again, although I might select a few of them.
It’s Lan’s Place on tumblr. よろしくね。

I’m not sure if anyone was still going to my old photo site or not, but it redirects here now, in case you tried to go there and ended up here with a puzzled look on your face.I want to build a photos page, or maybe I’ll just post pics individually, or maybe something completely different. Anyway that explains that.

In this case, the fork consists of this blog splitting into two; the new place is at WordPress and will be a home specifically for matters relating to 日本.

See, this is why I dislike Winnipeg.
I posted the CBR600 on Kijiji yesterday. I put an asking price of $3900, and stated that I was open to reasonable offers. I even italicized reasonable because I know how Winnipeggers are. I believed that this was very clear.
And just like clockwork, today, the first response I got – “$2500 right now”. ARGH!
Attention Winnipeg lowballers (that’s the whole town, more or less): first, you will be mocked mercilessly; next, you will be deleted.
In other news, I reviewed 508 kanji today. 85% success first time through. Not bad, not good enough. Regardless it’s high time to add more. 1500-odd to go, after all.
Also the Dakota (a.k.a. wretched steaming pile of money pit) is in the shop again. Also it’s rusting fast (had no rust at all in fall). Anyone want to buy a really nice truck? I’ll give you a good deal!
Also I was kinda on a Card Captor Sakura bender today. It’s a bit like eating a whole bag of truffles at once. I feel vaguely ill now so I shall go to bed and have cute dreams.

As the title says.
Hadn’t changed it for ages and it was high time =^.~=
I’ll add in a bunch of bicycle stuff later but I’m so snowed under at present (literal snow, yes) that I can’t say I’ve been frequenting bicycle sites much at all. Can’t wait for spring.

It seems amidst the peculiar paths and whizzings and crunchings of my semi-functional mind is a characteristic that is as baffling as it is annoying; namely, that of simply not doing something. Now you’d think that this is an ordinary sort of procrastination, but the fact is it’s more of a reluctance to take some, any sort, of action; that once a project, no matter now small, is on my agenda, if it does not get done instantly, there is afterwards a sort of magnetic field that keeps me from doing it for no reason whatsoever other than – well that’s just it, if I could put a name to it I might be able to get over it. This results in simple tasks, sometimes a matter of minutes, and of considerable importance at that, occasionally being put off for years.
Sometimes an important date is sufficient to overcome this inertia; sometimes that date has to come and go for three years first.
This is all a roundabout way of saying that I have at last updated the virtual museum page for my mother’s life and art, with the biographical texts. Shame on me; there’s no excuse for it taking this long.
Anyway, here it is. Go read.
