- The transition from summer to autumn here was swift; it went from being reasonably cool at night to chilly to downright cold in only a couple weeks, with day temperatures changing even faster. Only it won’t quite settle; there have been a couple warm days/evenings mixed in.
- To add to my running series of ailments, I somehow managed to get a case of Plantar Fasciitis. The solution? Do foot stretches, wear insoles, and apply a prescribed medicated bandage at night. That or just wait for about half a year. I’ve bought two pairs of insoles, which seem to be helping.
- Not only that, but it seems one of my Saturday-school students took a handful of man-to-man lessons while he/she had tuberculosis. This means I have to go next week and get tested. The company will pay for it, but I’m not really looking forward to getting stuck with yet another needle. やむを得ない。
- I finally managed, after years of casual searching, to find an out-of-print, region-free console game I’ve wanted since I knew it existed. Funny enough, the day I found it, there were four copies in the same city block. It’s given me hope in finding the last couple ultra-rare items I’ve been searching for.
