Before the figure skating this morning was the women's curling. We (Japan) were playing America and it was on the edge of the chair tense and exhilerating and all that - well not quite but a good game and while it won't keep me up all night to watch Japan play Canada it will keep me interested in the curling till the end.
I think the snowboard half pipe is tomorrow - with the Japanese snow boarder with dreds who got off the plane in Canada with his Olympic dress pants halfway down his ass and his tie all loose and altogether looking like a 20 year old half pipe dude with dreds. Not the best when traveling with the Olympic team though and he promptly got a good telling off and wasn't allowed to attend the opening ceremony. Hope he can redeem himself a bit tomorrow - not that he seems to give a shit mind you.
Enough of the Games.
I did two things I haven't done for ages today. The first was a walk outside with Ryu - we did our 4km loop and it was a tad cold (as in have had the fire roaring all day) but got him suited up in his snowsuit and out we went.
The other thing - I had an apple. A whole round apple. As mental as that may sound, I have not had an apple for over a year. I ate it in the privacy of the car so not many Japanese people could see me and wonder why on earth I was eating an apple so barbarically and why I didn't bother to peel it, core it, and shape it into small rabbits before eating.
Coffee and Chiemi came round before English and finally got a pic of her boy who will be one soon and Ryu...As of this morning Ryu's hair lies flat on his head and not up in mohawk. I was looking at him this morning wondering what was different and on seeing this pic have realised. Yay, my boy might finally be losing the mullet. Excellent. Only Marina to go now.
No juicy goss today. Hub late everynight and Granny K actually being a help and the only goss is me being a mad bitch angry at the kids and I'm not posting about that every night - although today was loads better.
But just quickly - last night after posting I found a link through another blog to a campain raising money to get a litter of dogs out of the warzone and back to the states and into nice homes. They were found in a cave without a mum when they were just little. It is costing shitloads to get them home so I made a small donation. I haven't got a stedfast rule when it comes to donations. Whatever appeals I guess. I'm sure there are loads of places to donate to help actual people in the warzone but I wasn't particularly out looking - just came across the link, clicked, and thought it was a nice story.
