State of the Gaijin 2017!
Normally I'd be doing this via Japandemonium, but well... yeah. Happy New Year! For added punny fun, this is the Year of the Rooster and Heisei 29, which can be jokingly written as 酉二九, or tori ni ku
(chicken meat). Kentucky Fried Chicken has been making hay with this in their ad campaigns.
The earthquake damage is mostly repaired now, though it'll take at least a decade to finish fixing up the castle. The last of the uninhabitable buildings are finally getting torn down, and some landlords are deciding whether or not to make repairs while they can still get compensated for quake damage stuff. Unfortunately, my landlord decided last month that the benefits of fixing the remaining problems with my building did not outweigh the cost of the repairs, so come April, my apartment's going to be a parking lot. We're moving in three weeks.
In happier news, I managed to fulfill my main 2016 resolution and put a book up on the Amazon Kindle store.
This is the better-edited version of what used to be linked in the Saving Throw forum, with the second and third episodes to follow soon-ish. Fourth episode's going to be my project for February, and hopefully I'll be editing the sixth or seventh by the end of the year. And in case anyone wonders, I went with my wife's maiden name as a pen name because my own is about as common as dirt. I wanted something that could actually be found on a web search.
So if you're interested, then please check them out. If not, then enjoy a free baby picture as well :)
