So last week, I'd reserved a spot in the 4pm tea ceremony today. Well, on Monday, my Kanji sensei says class is mandatory on Wednesday (today). Well, freakin' hot diggity. So, I decided to sneak into the 2pm one instead. This was all good and all, but I had to run to Aikido class at 3pm and then run back over to Kanji to find out that the mandatory attendance was because the class was going to attend the tea ceremony. WTF! Meanwhile, I'm sweating like a pig staring at bacon in this record-breaking atsui day.
Nonetheless, you can sneak a peek at some folks who I saw there. Aww, pretty kimonos.
And speaking of the Japanese, there seems to be a certain problem called

And now, I have links to sites about sex and fecal matter.
