I like living here. There's the linguistic partial immersion that keeps my brain nice and active. I'm lazy with languages, and don't learn them unless it's easy to. Subtitled Japanese cartoons are great for starting to make word recognition happen! Work is giving me Spanish to work on listening to.

Tonight was a laundry night. I did the rugs, thanks to a Flylady nag. Hooray Flylady! I am also working on decluttering my sock drawer. And my underwear drawer.

The anime where the king of demons gets flushed into another world is not quite pure crack but close. Happiness ensues. I have to pause about every five minutes to do something, but anime = fun.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
