Re: Japan

I still haven't been to Shanghai. Did you like it? I didn't like it! But mostly I just don't think I was in the mood for it at the time. There was this huge typhoon that was encompassing all of Taiwan at the time and Shanghai kept getting rained on. It was so humid, which I don't mind, but humidity...

I went to the IUBMB in Shanghai, then spent a week-ish in Seoul. Narita was the stopover from Seoul back to New York.

Close to Taiwan, eh? Then you must've got hit pretty hard by the typhoon?

Re: Japan

I was in Japan for the first time this summer but didn't leave the airport. Instead I spent my three hour stopover at Narita wondering what kasutera cake was and which colour of Mono Comme Ca lunch box I should buy. The best thing about Japan was the green tea kitkat bars. Delicious! Nan, you're not...

Re: Running

How much am I meant to increase my distance each week? Can I expect to get better quickly? I have no idea how it works with running, just weights, which is clearly not useful. I think the rule is 10% per week. What I would do is run out further than I thought I could run back and if I get to the po...

these are the only popfest pics I ended up taking. Sometimes I want to take pictures of everything and other times I get so self-conscious. I didn't even get a picture of Marcy and Chris!

Re: Running

Also I run like a loon, which doesn't help. I wouldn't worry about what you look like. Just as long as you're comfortable. Maybe just check your posture? I'm sure I look kind of awkward these days because I'm paranoid about my knees and have started to almost waddle. This is an x-ray of my knee cap...

Re: Ballboy

I've listened to Kiss Me, Hold Me and Eat Me about 20 times today. I can't seem to get enough of his voice and his guitar and everything. It's killing me that they're playing Indietracks and SF Popfest and I can't go to either and that they're not playing New York. It's so painful.
