    Journals and Notes

    When I was in high school, I use to doodle in my notebook. Come time to turn in some pages from my notes, I had to let the teacher see my wonderful drawings of maze-like faces of cartoons performing contorted sex.

     I still cannot break the habit of writing my diary/journals in the same notebook as the one I use for scheduling and inventory at work. Come time to show some numbers to my boss, she has to see my thoughts on “latex condoms and its effect on humming birds”.

     So, take it from me, a life long notebook schizo. Use separate notebooks for your school/work notes and private works.

    Iraq: Japanese Hostages Released

    Somehow the message got across to the abductors that it was not worth their time and effort to keep, or even kill, the three Japanese hostages. Good for them (the abductors).

    I am also hoping that the stupid Japanese “civillians” got it in their heads that they are in a war zone.

    Iraq: Three Japanese Hostages

    People from the Western world have a hard time understanding any culture that is not their own. People from the Eastern world also share that problem.

    The Iraqi’s holding the three Japanese “civillians” may understand America and how its government works under duress, but it does not understand how the Japanese government works.
