I'll be going to Rio de Janeiro next month. :shock:

Five years ago I was there to see the usual tourist attractions.
This time I'll spend the entire week getting to know the music scene, and also the samba school of Mangueira. 8-)

I just love this time of year... :sarcasm:


I hope you are feeling better by now! Getting the flu, especially during the holidays, just plain sucks! :-(

Celebrated Christmas and New Year in Japan. Just got back the day before last.

Watched the last sunset of 2016 as it disappeared behind Mount Fuji from the Tokyo Skytree, the second tallest structure in the world.

That is all.

This weekend will be the start of my career as a recording artist. :lol:

I'll be one of 20 people singing backing vocals on an album which is expected to sell a few hundred copies. :P

Well, okay, this is half "News to Share" and half weird stuff that followed afterward.

I haven't said, but after a spell of joblessness of a few months, about a month ago, I finally got a job, I now work at the gas station at the local Kroger. (For those of you across the pond, or maybe in other parts, it's a pretty big supermarket chain in the US.). So, okay, it's not a bad job....after the first week or so, I really started to get the hang of it.

But.....this last Wednesday, there was a windstorm of epic proportions (68mph gusts)...combined with a lot of precipitation beforehand, that results in trees going down, power lines going out, et cetera. In fact, DTE, one of the local power companies said it was their worst weather related outage ever.

The morning after that, I came in there, opened it up just like I should, had the place ready for business at 6am...at 6:15 am, I came back from doing some stuff outside, shut the door, and to quote a song, "boom boom out go the lights.". So, they had me go back in the store and work as a bigger the rest of the day.

I came into work yesterday thinking "OK, they'll have power back there by now.". Nope. I spent most of the day sitting there in a cold and dark gas station telling people "sorry, we're closed.". Eventually, though, they got a generator delivered, and then got an electrician out there to hook the whole thing up. So, I was able to sell gas for like 2 hours before it was time to close anyway. Couldn't even sell cigarettes or anything else, because the whole system wasn't online or something.

So, anyway, that was an eventful few days, at least!

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

Further developments at the gas station to add....

Last night, I went outside to empty the garbage cans as usual when I work the night shift...I then noticed a
I had a customer coming up to the kiosk. I said to her, "I'll be right there,"...shortly after that, I realized that I had went out there without the keys! Uh....oops. The customer ended up paying at the pump anyway, and I had to use my cellphone to call the store and get someone to bring a spare key out. He told me the woman I called found the whole thing hilarious. :lol:
