After five and a half weeks i am so happy to be back on-line properly. Sure, I have been using my house computer a fair bit but that’s really cr*p and slow and just not so convenient to use. I was relieved to get the phone call last night to say the repair was finished and in my basic Japanese I managed to throw enough words together to say what I wanted to say.
It has since turned out that those words actually made perfect sense which really surprised me. I was in Akihabara’s electric town with all the other geeks this morning waiting for the stores to open at 10am so that I could pick up my computer. Basically the fan broke and for some reason it took them over a month to fix this most common of computer breakdown problems. I am mightly relieved though that my computer wasn’t completely wiped clean and that I still have my photos and music just how I left it.
A little lighter in the pocket now but I am back in cyber-world and what did I do in the absence of a computer for the last 38 days I hear one or two of you ask. Well here’s the answer:
* Read ‘Life of Pi‘ by Yann Martel
* Watched more TV, particularly football
* Slept a lot more
* Went jogging a little more often
* Cleaning and house DIY
* More drinking
* Made all sorts of pointless lists
* Wrote a few articles for the school newspaper
* Learned a bit more Japanese
