I realised I've been living in Japan for over 6 months now and haven't said anything here about it.



I'm having fun and I'm doing well :thumbsup:

I hope your sister recovers fully. I also hope you are doing well these days.
Heart problems and cancer are in my family too. It isn't easy to deal with.

She's now fully recovered, and back home- has been for about a month so far. Getting used to living with a life-threatening condition, which is a real bitch to get used to, so needless to say we're in regular contact with each other for mutual pep-talks.

this early morning, i went to the local store to get me some nice breakfast for my family (who were still sleeping).

I arrived at the parking lot. now you should know, I drive a BMW so my first instinct is to look for a safe parking place. With all the jealous people around, you're bound to get scratches on your BWM when you don't watch out enough. I chose my parking place strategically.

Sometimes, I park on two places simultaneous, to create space between my car and the next car. you never know that some retard would slam open their door, to make a dent in my wonderfull metallic coachwork. but I digress.

or, like today, I park as far removed from the shop entry as possible. You see, ordinary people park as close to the entrance as possible. this is only logical, as it reduces the distance you have to go on foot to reach the front door. But not me. I am willing to sacrifice walking distance when it gets me a lonely (read: safer) parking place.

So today, I parked as fas away as possible, there wasn't a car next to me for at least 10 parking spaces. And when I got back.... there was another BMW parked next to me! (maybe it was elessar, I'll never know. then again, this BMW looked nice and in one piece). A sudden feeling of "togetherness" came over me. There was another BMW driver just like me. We understand each other 8-)

life is a challenge sometime, being a BMW driver 8-)

Ok, so all women do that and don't even realise, but no self-respecting man should ever do it. :mad:

Today we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. We are on holiday in Italy near Lake Garda. The hotel made our dinner very, very special.
Come on you Tigers.
