It might be excitement over the JET program or the realization that I never finished talking about my trip last summer, but all of a sudden, I feel the desire to write about the two weeks I spent during August in Japan! I have a journal filled with entries I wrote around that time, but I kept procrastinating when it came to typing everything up, mainly because I was worried I wouldn't be able to cover it all. So, I'm trying something new.

For each city I went to, I'm going to make a list of things I noticed or really enjoyed or somehow, beyond all reason, caught my attention. Certain posts are going to be longer than others, depending on the amount of time I spent in a given city, but I plan on making a few notes about each place. Starting with Kobe. Which is also probably going to be the shortest entry, since I was there for only half-a-day.

Also, warning! I went with my friend Eiko (who I've known since high school), so mentions of her are going to pop up pretty frequently.

I was telling [personal profile] cyanwitch about this in an email, so I figured I might as well share it with everyone.

Last weekend, we had a couple of family friends drop by our place, which led to hearing a Very Interesting Story about this woman who apparently raised a squirrel that fell into her house through the ceiling, and then raised it to listen by keeping it on heated pads for over three months. (This squirrel, by the way, also had to be fed every two hours during those three months. And she fed it only on cashew nuts, because it wouldn't eat anything else. And this squirrel ate from her plate at every meal. Dot dot dot.)

Anyway, the squirrel also made a nest in their house inside the piano, so every so often, she would hear tiny plonk sounds from the keys because the squirrel was chewing through the insides of it. After the squirrel was done with the piano, it moved on to the armchair of this woman's couch and proceeded to devour that as well. Apparently, everyone was fine with this.

LONG STORY SHORT: SQUIRRELS ARE SUPPOSED TO LIVE FOR ONLY TWO TO THREE YEARS, BUT THIS ONE LIVED FOR OVER EIGHT YEARS. IT WAS A TOTAL MUTANT. THE END.

Sometimes, I really would like to ask the universe how something like this could possibly happen. But I also have a nagging feeling that I wouldn't like the answer. XD
