Happy New Year, O Reader!

Well, I said I’d post from the other side of the world, but I didn’t really have time to.  Maybe once I’m back in Japan I’ll write about my time home.

In the meantime, enjoy this new sculpture of a brick cat!  I don’t know who did it, and neither did my family, but there it is, chillin’ next to the freeway. EDIT (February 7, 2011): I found out that the sculpture is entitled “Monumental Kitty” and was made by Detroiter Jerome Ferretti.  Read an article about it on Roadside America.


Well, I had wanted to go to bed at 4AM, but that didn’t happen.  I’ve just a few more things to get straightened out before I can sleep knowing everything’s packed and ready to go.  Maybe I can get 2 more hours of sleep in my wonderful bed. T_T
