08:39 pm: It's time to get down with the sewerage
...that I take my camera everywhere?

I've already gotten more pictures of flowers than I can keep track of.

This butterfly was quite the showoff. He walked all over that flower, letting me get pictures of him from a number of different angles, with his wings both open and closed.

Sunset is currently at a convenient time, coming right after I get off of work. The pink sunset was from yesterday. The orange one beneath it was today's.

Speaking of the sun's light shows... The year-end faculty party sign-up sheet was given out today. This year it will be a traditional Japanese-style meal, and one of the organizers has promised to request a special vegetarian meal for me. Tomorrow I'll hand him my list of what I can and can't eat. The place where it will be held is a hotel on the opposite shore of Lake Biwa. It advertises that it has a large rotenburo (outdoor hot spring bath) from which you can watch the sunrise.

The final picture is from a flyer that was passed around my apartment complex. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it, but there it is...a "sewerage" fair. From the fact that they put the year on it, that makes me think it's an annual event. (Did I notice this last year?)

What will they think of next?

Ann Arbor has an annual fun thingy for the kids at the treatment plant. Maureen saw the ad in the Observer one year and was convinced it was that month's Fake Ad.

Wow, I never knew about that.

This one is apparently being held at some kind of water/environment science center.

Sewerage? I was surprised to see that word. It's in rather limited use.

Personnally, I'd be more interested in seeing the upstream side of the faucet.

When I look at anything written in "English" here, I never know whether the person who created it chose the words intentionally or just picked things out of a dictionary... Actually, the ones who bother to consult dictionaries are ahead of the game.
