How about them apples

I found a giant apple the size of my head at the supermarket the other day! Just had to take a picture. Of course this warrented the question "would I take this at, say, Albertsons if I saw that apple in the US?" ..probably not.... ^^;

Sorry I haven't been updating my blog, we don't have internet at work and I used to update on my lunch breaks. (I know you're thinking.. "what?! no internet at work?! How do you read the JavaDocs?!" but we have internal internet with the japanese javadocs. ^^ )

But anyways, my contract with JCB ends this week, and for the interim I'll be back at my company's headquarters. They most certainly have internet there, so hopefully I'll be blogging again soon.

In the meantime, here are some little news blurbs:

1. I asked my boss for a raise, and he said "sure, how much?" ..always a tricky question.
2. Realized I never actually got my diploma from LMU, so I got in touch with the registrar's office and they're mailing it to me here in Japan. It'll be nice to see what it actually looks like!
3.Takeshi bought a nintendo Wii, and we suddenly had four game systems and no place to put them, so I made a little shelf for them from wood from the nearby home improvement store. It was fun! I measured everything so it all fits perfectly. Wow, am I a hardcore gamer, or a hardcore organizing homemaker? ^_~ (probably the first one since the sink is full of dirty dishes...) 4.Gemini (my comic) is now on page 99!(!!!!)

How about you guys? some blog updating is in order! Except for mom, she just wrote a funny blog about catching our cat, which everyone should read. ^^

Two questions...

How much did they want for that apple? Was it priced like one of those cubic melons?

Which store was it? Queen's Isetan in Sengawa?

it was 380 yen. Not bad, considering normal apples cost about 150 yen each here. (but then, they're really good apples!)
and no, it was some random supermarket close to Takeshi's parents house ^_^

Wow, that is an impressive apple - and I come from an area known for apples (WA). I just got a wii too! did you get the japanese one? We should exchange wii numbers, I'll send you a Mii :)

I am very jealous of this Wii.

Did you come up with a raise to ask for? That's so awesome.

I came up with what I wanted, emailed my reply and... silence. I haven't heard anything in a week.
er.. maybe I asked for too much, but still dude, say SOMETHING!!

I've been playing Zelda and I kinda wish I got the gamecube version because wiggling around the controller gets pretty tiring after awhile. but I heard wii sports is fun...
Kati, how do you know your number? I made a little character in mii but that's all I know how to do.
