Cold and miserable

Japan is still cold and miserable with the only bright light being that there has been no snow so far this winter, which in turn means that I do not have to burst a blood vessel due to Tokyoites incompetency in the proper use of an umbrella. Currently I have no escape plan, but feel the urgency to start making some contingency plans to take Ms. Sunshine under my arm and get somewhere warm for a few days to try and recharge the batteries and get rid of this annoying winter cold that I end up carrying around for days at end.

On the work front things have been calm, no lack of stupidity, but a certain lack of funny stupidity at the moment, however, with overseas management coming in to inspect the operations in the near future I am sure that there will be plenty of comedy material coming up as certain people in the organization will scramble for attention and others will do their best to cover up what they're doing.

If you live in Europe or the US and is suffering from the winter, keep in mind that you should be thankful that isolation and central heating is concepts that are understood over there at least...

Insulation, mate. Insulation. (Same problem as in German, I bet).

Am soooo tired of freezing my extremities in the morning when heading to the bathroom. And all the lung-hackers who make a big production of just how bad their cold is.

@JT: so you are not warmed by the thought of meeting the cleaning lady later in the day?

You said previously that you've been in Japan for 10 years. I am french and I am interested in learning japanese, how hard is it to learn japanese? I am also following the Japanese Stock Market, here is my blog if you wanna to check it out (http://thenikkei225investor.over-blog.com/).

LOL! Actually, I was talking about *my* bathroom. No cleaning ladies and no Dick boy wonders to be found, for which I am thankful on both counts. Plenty of Dick boy wonders at work though.

Mr. Salaryman said...

Yeah what wouldn't I give to have Dick the boy wonder with me to warm me up in bed.

Welcome to the blog Olivier and I assume that you must've missed my feelings on the french ;) But as a French expat I'm willing to give you the benefit of a doubt!

Mr. Salaryman said...

Oh yeah Penguin! Insulation is the word!

Isolation we have plenty of up north though.

Yikes! The grammar in the last paragraph is atrocious. Were you purposely getting the singular and plural mixed up?

Mr. Salaryman said...

Haha, thank you very much for noticing my crappy grammars! That inspired me to a post that will come in the weeks ahead!
