A quick note and a huge laugh to share!

A quick post with some quick notes for friends of the blog and blogger 🙂


For NZ. K., in case she has any time at all in her busy busy schedule on her trip home, thinking of you and letting you know we won the quiz last night! Yay!


For readers waiting for the next instalment in my Moving to Japan Tips series – it will be coming next week, it’s on language and I’m taking a bit of time to find some good links for you to help you get a handle on the minimum you really, practically need to live here for the finite period of time that most expat families do. Don’t fret if the language scares you – it’s not as much as you’d think 🙂


We’re off driving to Takayama early tomorrow morning with A & R where we hope to see lots of original antique buildings much, much older than at Meiji Mura. Crossing fingers that the rain will hold off enough for us to get some lovely photos (not that rain doesn’t add it’s own beauty if you can keep your camera safe!)


Last but by no means least, Thursday’s Daily Show was sheer genius – you know when you laugh so hard your stomach is sore and your lungs feel like they’ve been vigorously scrubbed from the inside? It was THAT funny. You’ll never be able to listen to John Kerry with a straight face again!!! Enjoy!


…okay, obviously the entire world thinks it’s as funny as we did and the embed is getting a little overloaded so just in case here’s the link to follow 🙂

  1. The Daily Show has been gold for months now, really hitting its stride with the run-up to the election. You can watch entire episodes of the Daily Show right on its official website, even from Japan.
    It’s really helped that they’ve been doing out on the street reports and features. For most of this year, they have been missing, so they are a welcome return.


  2. the weather doesn’t look too good this weekend, but have a safe drive!


  3. Though we spent years diligently watching the bits, the full episodes were very much welcomed in our house – we are addicted to them! They have been on fire recently though, partial credit where it is due, the pickings are rich at the moment lol!
    Thanks Ken – we had great weather on the way up then rain and fog today so we didn’t get to the open air museum but we had a great time nonetheless, plenty else to do – post coming some time this week!
