I'm an American living in Japan for three years while my wife is on assignment here. (Three years has come and gone so I should probably say three years and counting.)

I'm a Crappy Blogger

Okay I've been busy. I procrastinate. I'm lazy. I've got a million excuses. The truth is I'm a crappy blogger. I think of things that I would like to blog about and then....Zing 3 months go by and I still haven't blogged. Here's where I should be saying......."Well, it's a new year and this year I will do better!" That's what I should be saying. In reality, I don't see things changing. I'm an old fart who is stuck in his ways. Anyhow, saw this t-shirt in a local department store and it cracked me up. Not sure what it means, but it is a perfect example of "Engrish" (English translated from a different language).

The picture is the head and neck of a guitar with a guy tuning it. The writing is:

Anything has not remained any longer
To going out
dimension in the new world in the future
From the rooftop in the apartment
the excrement of me in Brooklyn"

What? I got no idea what that means. It may be so filled with angst and meaning that it's just too deep for me. Who knows?

My life is scattered right now and going in many directions. One more excuse for why I haven't blogged. I'm hoping to wrestle it into some kind of order in the near future. I feel like that scene in the movie "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" where Mel Gibson is sent out into the desert tied to a horse facing backwards and wearing a giant papier-mached head.

It took me half an hour to find this photograph! Then I couldn't download it so I had to take a picture of it with my phone and send it to myself and then send it to my blog. This may be why I don't blog more often. But the fact that I was able to do this at all is pretty amazing from a technological standpoint. I digress.

Spent some time in Buffalo over the holidays. It was freakin' cold! But the snow was beautiful

and I got to do a little bit of skiing

and visit Stephen and Chrissy (my son and his girlfriend)

and friends.

Marcia's thinking about trading me in on a taller model.

Had some quality time with the family.

Had a wonderful Christmas and

New Year

So, all-in-all, a great trip.

あけましておめでとうございます!(Happy New Year)

Ja mata,

"Speak Lark." "Feel Coke." "Higgley Piggley Payton Place for Men" I remember fondly these examples of what I call Janglish, from my time in Japan. Loved the shirt.

Gary, I shared a link to this post in my reply on "How to leave a comment."

You and I are roughly the same age, I'd bet (I'm 53). So, I dare you to post at least once per month! Will you check on my blog at least that often to make sure I'm not falling into the same "Crappy Blogger" cycle?
