Random thoughts, comments, observations and general fluff from a random bint who left London at the end of September 2004 to embark on a new life and new adventures in Tokyo, land of the cute.... and is leaving mid-June 2010 - and counting!

Me: Horrible weather, isn't it?
Student: Seven.
Me: Seven?
Student: Seven.
Student: Yes, seven.
Me: Seven what?
Student: Seven.
Me: Seven what?
Student: Typhoon. Seven.
Me: Typhoon seven?
Student: Seven typhoon.
Me: Seven typhoons????
Student: Yes. Seven typhoon from January.
Me: argh. Okay. This is the seventh typhoon this year in Tokyo. Right.

This must have taken about two or three minutes to conclude!


This week is a harsh week. I'm on a six day working week and have two special two-hour morning classes in addition to the normal working day that starts in noon. It's a killer. I was going to ramble on a bit about being a teacher, but am having difficulties putting sentences together right now!
