Thanks For Your Patience

Wow, I've been terrible at this whole blogging thing lately, huh??

Well, I'm back in Seattle. I actually got back Tuesday and would have posted something sooner but my body finally forced me to accept that, not only has it been steadily maintaining an unreasonable pace the past few weeks but it's also been fighting a cold. So, upon my return, it pretty much shut down. When not drooling on myself, I've been able to do little more than eat, sleep and catch up on TV shows (all of which seem to be Jumping the Shark. Or Nuking the Fridge).

While I'm feeling repentant, let me also apologize for my terrible posting record while in Japan. About halfway through my trip, I pretty much gave up on my increasingly unreliable laptop and took to blogging longhand in my notebook or verbally into my voice recorder. (Podcast, anyone?) It didn't really hit me until I got back that it probably wasn't the smartest move having my very last post be about an approaching typhoon. My bad. Needless to say, I survived. (Apologizes to my grandparents.) At least I kept my Twitter pretty up-to-date, right?

Anyway, now that I'm back and somewhat recovered, I'm trying to figure out the best way to get my posts from the last month and a half online. Should I post them in chronological order or in whatever order that I finish them? Roll them out a day at a time? A week at a time? Perhaps in one big massive posting that even I wouldn't want to have to sit through? We'll see.

Oh, and I also want to get a handful of the 6500+ photos I took during my trip posted at well. (And still at 999! I do love my new memory card.) Sadly, the external hard drive I recently built to hold my gigatons of photos and music has this nasty habit of convincing my computer that it's unrecognizable then ejecting itself, usually in the middle of some major task involving valuable files. Stupid technology. Stupid computer. (I have 3 laptops, all Windows, none working properly. I'm starting to see the appeal of a Mac. Don't tell anyone.) I'll forever regret not buying another external drive or two from Yodobashi Camera before I left.

Anyway, believe it or not, it's good to be back. (And, hey look, I'm not coughing!) Thanks again for checking in. I'm looking forward to sharing my recent adventure with you.

Just as soon as the coffee kicks in.

UPDATE: Yahoo seems to agree with me about Heroes.
