The weekend is flying already. Yesterday, Paul and I took a trip up to Brattleboro, VT, where we met up with Dave & Ren, and had a lovely day exploring shops and enjoying a delicious dinner at India Palace. I picked up a tiny little book called Japanese in Thirty Hours, which promises great things. I took myself through the first lesson this morning, and can now point at Lucy and say, “This is a dog.” Very exciting.
Today, Paul will go hiking, and I will attempt to do some writing (with perhaps a bit of laundry on the side). I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head, and I need to get them down before they flee.
Tomorrow I will be leaving the house before the crack of dawn to make it to NYC in time for auditions. We are booked solid (with a short lunch break) from 10-5, and we even have a waiting list, which is a very great thing, but makes for a long day. I will be lucky to make it back home by ten, at which time I intend to collapse on the couch with Lucy and anyone else who will join me. If I am still capable of speech at that point, I will point at her and say, “This is a dog.”
Happy weekend, folks!

That Japanese book sounds great! Keep it up!
(All I remember from Intro to Latin is how to say “The dog is in the street.” and “The dog is not in the street.”)

Hee! That is too advanced for me yet, but I’ll work up to it! :D

Been a long time. Hope you and Paul are well.

It *has* been a long time! And we are well! How are you? *Where* are you? What are you up to?
Sadly, even the amazing book does not think it can teach me to *read* Japanese in thirty hours. So you’d have to use romaji for me to even have a clue. :)

Okay, after spending some time with an online translator:
Or (since I’m really only learning romaji at the moment): Hai!
