J-Cat


Yeah, yeah. I know, I know. I'm a selfish bastard and I haven't been sharing all my inane thoughts, wonderful insights and ridiculous stories with you. Well, tough tootsies!

I have been mightily productive and been so busy living life and creating stuff that I haven't had time to talk about it. Actually that's a lie. I've been spending all my free time watching Prison Break and playing my guitar. So sue me.

Here in Lilliput the school year starts in April and I have been trying to work out something that no one has ever seen in this school. I am integrating all my classes with the school bulletin board, Internet resources and cell phone communication. I am far from complete, but so far the results are pretty outstanding.
It's kinda like starting a blog and all of a sudden you have sixty or more comments on each post. I have never seen college students this excited about something other than the opposite sex or money.

Ok, so that's mostly me right there. As always it comes down to work, so what of it?
I finished the last interview for the radio show and I don't want it to end. I am really digging it. I have an ego the size of Marge Simpson's Beehive and chilling out in a studio again brings back some sweet memories. (Just in case you didn't know, I used to have my own radio show here.)

I still suck at guitar and even the cat has started protesting. I tell her that unless she becomes more complacent I will replace the steel strings with parts of her innards.

Missus Lime: I think a post on the ten stupid questions every Gaijin gets asked is a wonderful idea and I am trying to see if I can get something together that will give you out there a true feeling of what it's like here in the land of the rising sun.

I have got oodles of ideas for future posts, but nary a moment to spend getting them down on 'paper'. Once I am finished with season three and Link and Michael finally escape- again -then I will be back and giving blogland my undivided attention. Yeah, right.

Cheers!

where were you when the limelettes and i were mugging with our weird sunglasses?

i'm glad the radio thing has been a fun foray for you. i would be thrilled to read the 10 stupid gaijin questions post. i anxiously await that!

I won't miss the inane thoughts, wonderful insights and ridiculous stories as much if you at least post pictures of hot Japanese women. But here's a hint to help with future posts - putting your ideas on paper won't make them appear on your blog. I'm not entirely sure, but I think you've got to enter them into one of those computer thingys.

In closing, think - bunny!

Well, whatever's going on in your life, you're still looking good!

You might want to schedule an appointment with a dentist. And an ophthalmologist while you're at it.

Megan said...

I tried 'click on the pic to enlarge' in order to more properly view the glassware, but all I got was more teeth.

No worries, though. I can wait while you do your whole 'stimulating the minds of the young' thing...

Spin said...

I must say that is a very good look for you. LOL

Kurt said...

Yes - a ten stupid questions post.

NYD said...

Lime~ I would have loved to be there, but it was your moment.

Grant~ I really am sorry. I keep forgetting how starved you are for sweets.
You really ought to come to one of my university classes. YUM!

Beth~ Only you could say that and make me believe it.

Citizen~ I believe that a behavioral psychologist is more in tune with my needs.

Megan~ Hmmm, the glassware is delightful. I guess that comes from being a bartender. I shall have to make a pretty picture of it someday.

Spin~ Sometimes it's the best I can do. The kids love it.

Kurt~ I really want to do something special with that subject. I want the chuckles to be just right.

Please have an objective third party confirm that it WAS an actual radio show, and not just you loitering on a street corner with a "Mr. Microphone".

It would break my heart to discover that you've morphed into the Blanche DuBois of Lilliput.

NYD said...

I love you PUG.
I really am laughing my fucking ass off here!!!!

The Grunt said...

The funny thing about that picture is that you look like Mike Rowe from the Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs".

Playing guitar is the correct pathway to God.

Mona said...

That is doing a lot of things...

I'd love to play a musical instrument too!

...or instrumental music...

Right now I am clearing my sister's closets with thousands of clothes and giving them out to donation communities...

Living life and creating stuff is why we're here.

(You might want to indulge in a drop or two of Visine...)

Enemy of the Republic said...

Oh, got to make it over to Pug to see if he has entertained the masses with a new post.

I love the new look and the new name. I am your Stanley.

Bunny! Bunny!

Serena said...

You're working way too hard, my dear. Look what all the nail biting has done to your poor teeth! Seriously, though, students excited about new lesson plans sounds like a wonderful thing.

Anonymous said...

When the cat starts singing and the neighbors start screaming then you know it's time to get an instructor to show you how to play that thing. The pic on the other hand should have been without all the added effects. Gee, would have enjoyed seeing those deep browns instead. Last but not least, writing down thoughts isn't all that important, but writing what is, topics at your choice would be nice to read about. Guess I'm saying I enjoy looking you up and finding something new and different. Can't wait to hear more about the radio show, topics and all. Attach a link so we all can hear it.

Miss you when you're not there.

Looking forward to the next blog

Be well and happy
