Day 2304 ( Honda JET flies )
Thursday, July 10, 2014
A huge typhoon (Neoguri) was threatening to tear Japan a new one. It didn't really affect much of the mainland but it did some damage down in Okinawa and Kyuushuu ( The southern most of the 4 main islands of Japan ).
All we got in my area was a little wind and very little rain. Almost nothing comes to this prefecture .... seriously. No earthquake, no people ... nothing !
First HondaJet takes to the skies
Day 2305 ( Dog Scares Away Bear )
Friday, July 11, 2014
Did an exercise from my English book "Let's Chat" .... with the English club students today then went home and started watching old episodes of the Simpson's.

Day 2306 ( Latin Dance Party ! / Fatal Abuse of 3 yo )
Saturday, July 12, 2014
Stayed in for the most part and started playing a game called Kill Zone 2.
I actually bought this game sometime ago while living in Okayama, but got stuck in it and decided to just give it a break... until now.
Later on, a lady in Toyama invited me out to go to a Latin dance party. If you read my blog about 2 years ago, you may realize that this would have been my second time to go to any form of Latin kinda thing. I know nothing about salsa, bachatta, meringue etc. But I went, watched and participated every now and again. I must say that I am learning.
After this, I was invited to a Latin bar that opened recently called Latin Rock - Toyama.
The bar was filled with mostly people from Paraguay but a few Brazilians were there as well. I had to be speaking to them in Japanese, because they speak almost no English.
I'm not sure what is going on in Japan but recently there has been a spike in random killing of children and loved ones.

Day 2307 ( 10 dishes Japanese men want their girlfriends to cook for them)
Sunday, July 13, 2014
Did absolutely nothing today. Didn't even watch the world cup finals at 5 am in the morning....I am too tired after all those late nights staying up.. I just watched the highlights afterwards on the FIFA website. Argentina did put up a good fight ...But yeah my second choice team ended up winning ..... Congratulations Deutshland/Germany. This world cup has been my best since started watching it in 1994.
Any foreign ladies out there interested in Japanese men? Outside of been a bit shy, not many Japanese men are interested in taking home a foreign bride... There are a few but they are very very scarce. But if you are a foreign woman that is interested in a Japanese male, then you need to learn how to cook the foods below and read this article......
Day 2308 ( Japanese Lawmaker bawls at press conference over his use of public funds )
Monday, July 14, 2014
Got another shipment of Jamaican banana chips today. It's like drugs when I'm not in Jamaica.
47 year old politician cries after asked by the media about his misappropriation of funds. So this is what I'm paying tax in Japan for...
Day 2309 ( Noah / Rush )
Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Finally today I finished watching Noah, after trying to watch it for about 2 weeks now and kept falling asleep.
It had some interesting parts in it ... and I guess with the various interpretations of the Bible, I won't be the one to say anything about it was incorrect from a Bible scholar's perspective. But I've been slacking up on reading my Bible so for a while I started confusing the Noah story with the story about Abraham's nephew Lot and his daughters.... ... I was expecting Noah's son Ham to be black or with darker skin because traditionally at least, he is believed to be the ancestor of the black race... And as far as I know, all other races came from black.... I stand corrected. I give it a 6/10.
I also watched a movie about some back in the days famous formula 1 race care drivers called Rush.
I actually thought it was going to be boring because I have no interest in formula 1 racing whatsoever. But it was surprisingly interesting. I give it a 7.5/10.
Day 2310 ( Woman dies after being forced to drink water during exorcism)
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Aah some Japanese teachers can be sooo inquisitive when it concerns foreigners but so secretive with their own lives and business.
So a teacher that enjoys practicing her English or just simply like talking with me was asking me for advice about travelling to Tokyo. I should have known that some ears would be eave dropping on our conversation. Any way.... I told her what I thought and my recommendations..... This was last week. The lady that was curious about our conversation can't speak English very well, so she sent a query with another teacher who can speak some English. The other teacher just out of the blue asked me if I'm going on a trip.... So I told her "yes I am". I thought it was an innocent question because many teachers always query about my summer vacation plans. But that wasn't the case... They wanted to know if I had summer vacation plans with the teacher who was asking me about Tokyo !!! They didn't dear ask the other teacher ..... But you know I'm a foreigner so I guess any question is fine !!! Yeah then the teacher who couldn't speak English was like "ooh I thought you were going on a trip together with hkjhh sensei" ...... Then if this was such a concern of hers, why didn't she ask the other teacher ???? SMH If I was going anywhere with her, it would have been headline news at the school, guaranteed.
After I went home, I finally ended Kill zone 2... It was quite challenging but fun to play. I didn't wan't to start playing another game yet so I started watching a BBC documentary online about earth. You know them kinda national geographic/Animal planet kinda things? Yeah I know I'm bored....
I fell asleep on the carpet at around 8:30. Got up back at 12 midnight then back to sleep again at 2.
I was surprised 2 or 3 years ago when I found out about a man whose full time job is to exorcise demons out of peoples' homes. Yes there is such a job in Japan ...... I remember when the person was telling me about him, she said, when he was buying a house, he was asked his occupation.... when he told the authorities that he was an exorcist, they of course started looking at him weird and asked for clarification. In any case, I guess they eventually accepted what he said and he is making a kill from his job. He has a huge house.
