Thursday - Hot and sunny. Again.

Woke up early this morning for me, got up and stayed up. Woot. I watched the news and then did my usual computer stuff. I showered and then turned on the AC. It is so hot and humid these days. I can hardly believe it. I’m used to one or even two weeks with no breaks in the weather, but it’s been over a week since it rained for an hour or so, and I can’t even remember the last time that it rained most of the day.

I had a fairly quiet day at home today. I had a couple of English muffins early on for breakfast. Nice. There was no TV on for hours as one station had baseball, and one station had tennis. I’m not a fan of either. When something else came on it was CSI Miami, so not even a good CSI show.

I left for work around 5:10 or so. My pumped up bike was much easier to ride today. I stopped at the drugstore to buy a few things and picked up a couple of pens. The weird thing was when I went through the checkout, they only charged me for one of them. I think they were training a new girl and I don’t think she rang it in properly. I tried to look at my receipt after I paid, but I wasn’t wearing my glasses and I’m not terribly fast at reading katakana anyway. At the school I checked off the things I bought from the receipt and there was one thing not listed. It was only a 200 yen pen, but I feel a bit odd. And, since I checked the receipt in front of the cashiers, they probably think I think they ripped me off, rather than vice versa!

My school was so hot tonight. It was over 35 degrees in there. I started up the AC and the fan and cooled it down rather quickly.

I had two classes tonight and I think they went rather well. In my second class the student and I were talking about being over 40 and men and women and how we often talk about bodies going downhill after 40. I taught her the expression “muffin top” as well! It was really interesting and I was almost sad to start the real part of the lesson.

After work, I finished up fairly fast and asked F to pick me up. We had a nice dinner in Moku-Moku. I had their cold pasta again and it was crunchy. I like that. F had their curry plate. We did a lot of talking over dinner and enjoyed ourselves.

We visited MaxValu after dinner for a few groceries. I’m going to do dinner again tomorrow night. Hopefully it’ll work out well!

We came home and had a bit of a snuggle and then F went to bed. He’s quite tired today.

That’s about it for me. It was a good day, but I have a few things I need to get done fairly soon. Wish me luck with that! Night.
