08:42 pm: Puppy procrastination
I waited what I considered a reasonable amount of time, and still didn't hear any news about the canine position. Finally I went knocking on the chief's door today to ask what the decision was. He said that the Port Director was not thrilled at having to decide between two trainees for the position, so instead he's not hiring anyone. He plans to advertise the position again "next calendar year." Since that could conceivably be anytime during 2010, I asked the chief specifically whether he thought that meant January, and he said probably yes.

On the bright side, this means I can go to Comiket!

In domestic news, I bought myself a new blender and a pair of pressure cookers (one large, one small). I'm continuing to experiment with making Indian food. My most recent dish was a three-legume curry that turned out quite well.

I'm looking forward to having my parents come visit starting this Friday. I hope they get to experience a lot while they are here.

Also, kudos for taking the initiative to go talk with the Chief. I'm sure that is something you never would have done in Japan. But, at least now he knows that you were very interested, and you can make plans for the Comiket.

I nearly didn't, but I didn't want to have to put my plans off any longer.
