08:40 pm: Where has all the April gone...?
I have totally dropped the ball on keeping my journal updated. For not really having anything to do, I seem to be always doing something.

On April 5th I went up to Chicago for a birthday party, where I saw quite a few of my relatives and played with my brother's beagle. On the 12th, my family had a birthday party for me, where I got numerous DVDs as well as a Nintendo DS from wednesday_10_00. Wow!

This past weekend, I went to visit wednesday_10_00 at her place, where I also got to hang out with mereflair and sleep with cats and eat Robert Redford cake and play golf on my knees.

On weekdays, I've been catching up on several series that I missed over the past 3+ years, notably Doctor Who, Torchwood, and StarGate Atlantis. In addition, I've been sending out a few job applications, though I haven't heard anything yet. As always, I continue to spend time reading the books and comics that I brought with me and those I mail ordered from Japan.

The boxes that I mailed from Moriyama are estimated to arrive in Toledo any day now. I'm looking forward to being reunited with my things again, though goodness knows where I will put it all.

I've spent a significant amount of time playing Warcraft. My guild currently has an alliance with another small guild, and we've been tackling 25-person raids. We started by taking down Hydross and The Lurker Below, and recently we've been venturing into Mount Hyjal, now that the attunements have been lifted. This past weekend we beat the first two bosses there.

I'm planning to keep looking for jobs until something works out. Currently I'm applying for positions at colleges and universities. If I do find something, I'll be sure to report about it.

Completely utterly and unbelievably out of left field.

I found, about a month ago, your Uni of Michigan webpages that explained how to make a yukata.

Thanks for that.

Your instructions were probably the most 'authentic' that I found online. I made a yukata for a craft swap - although my impatience lead me to discard things like the kise and the reinforcements and all the niceties, I'm so so SO pleased with the result. So... again... thank you.
