[livejournal.com profile] sw_inku and I went to the Museum of Natural History yesterday - where I haven't been in ages. We didn't just go, however. We went in style.

Funnily there was supposed to be a whole group in dress - the original intent of going was to meet up with them. We got there a bit late, as per usual, however, and not once in four hours did we see the others. It was sad - I really wanted to meet up with everyone.

Naturally, of course, it rained all day yesterday: just to make things fun. We couldn't take the pictures we wanted to because of it. My poor camera kept getting wet because it didn't fit into my bag.

Just a quick note to say that I'm still alive, and still having a good time in Iida. Next weekend I may get to Osaka, and possibly back to Kyoto for a day. I finally caved and went to a kimono shop, and somehow managed to get across to the owner that I wanted a yukata made - I go to pick it up on August first. The big festival is drawing nearer, and nearer, and practices are getting more intense. We're giving two mini-performances at schools pretty soon (I know one is on the 29th, but have forgotten the date of the other one).

Oh, and rainy season really kind of sucks. Really.

Miss everyone much.

It should not be as cold as it is right now after Baseball Season begins. (Alex does not approve.)

On the other hand, it's good for cooling my Fuze on the window sill. (Alex still does not approve.)

Still am highly displeased by the decision to move Andy to the minors. Am trying to take comfort that no other team snatched him up. It's not working so well.

I am going to drown in my homework readings. Particularly those for my Nationalism in Modern History class. Dear God the big words! They're coming for me!

Well, I'll tell you the wind is blowing something fierce out there. This day alone the wind's been so terribly rough and howling it's pushed in rain, driven it back out to give us sun, and now it's driven in more overcast clouds though it remains dry. It's quite strong enough to knock a person over; I saw it happen just while walking back from the supermarket. It's enough to make a body want to stay safe inside one's flat, though I'd thought perhaps to revisit the V&A for pictures. Ah, me.

In theatre we've moved on from the Irish plays (The Seafarer and There Came a Gypsy Riding) and into Shakespeare's Twelfth Night or What You Will. We'll be seeing it on Tuesday, I believe, and I'm quite looking forward to it. And this Saturday I'll be attending the first of the concerts for my music class - featuring Benjamin Britten's Spring Symphony, which should be quite a treat. I'm also going to see if I can't find my way to Portobello Road for the street faire.
