- found out favorite store (and all the stores near it) is going out of business 😦 had to hurry and do all my shopping in advance for this year’s adventures: backpack, hiking shoes, “trekking” socks, and waterproof bag. fortunately everything was half off.
- cashier tried to give me 1,000 yen of extra change. he seemed to think i gave him three 1,000 yen notes for a 1,430 yen purchase.
- caught up on a taped episode of house tonight in which they played peter gabriel covering arcade fire. wondering what is going on in american music for this to have happened. friends in america, please advise.
