I'll tell you all more about it later.
Hope everyone had a good Xmas and Happy New Year, if I don't update before!
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!
As I was cutting up my 125th snowflake with a kid - yup, I've been doing Xmas lessons all week, which has been kind of fun - and I've realised I could probably cope with doing lots of craftsy things all day, which means the idea of working with young kids more DOES appeal - anyway, the 6 year old and I were chatting, as her English is near native level.
No. I have NO idea what it means, but Sony Plaza shops are wishing everyone a 120% Christmas, according to their bags. Maybe that extra 20% equals the leftover turkey, the hangovers, the drunken uncles snoozing in the bushes, the remnants of wrapping paper found 6 months later under the sofa, the money heaped onto the credit cards.....
about all the recent stressing out on here. I`ve spent the last couple of days, after speaking to a lovely helpful English speaker at a computer shop here, getting everything off of my computer (music, songs, documents, etc) and I`m now ready to run the original discs through and see if I can fix it myself. We`ll see.
It seems, according to my internet provider, that the internet connection is fine and that it`s the computer that`s stopping me from getting onto the internet.
The certTESOL is over and I passed. The moderator came from London yesterday, checked all of our work and interviewed us and it`s over.
My internet is STILL screwed at home. I`m getting increasingly frustrated by the crapness of the company and my inability to communicate with them directly and tell them how pissed off I am. Hopefully, it`ll be sorted soon. I have a couple of Japanese friends who have been talking to them on my behalf but they`re too nice to really push the provider to SORT IT OUT.
I am still internetless at home. It`s hell. I feel like someone has broken my legs and stuffed me onto crutches. It`s just wrong.
