Taking the day off, but will have some good stuff for Friday. Thanks!

P.P.S. I keep forgetting to mention this, but I am going to visit Japan again at the end of the year for my daughter’s 4th birthday, and to celebrate Japanese New Year with my wife’s family. I’ll be there from Dec. 28th to Jan 7th. If you are in the Tokyo/Kanagawa area, I’d love to hear from you. I hope to visit some friends there in early January at the very least. :)

1 Machines might think I am 100001 instead though.

    Hello everyone, and thank you! I was so happy to hear from you all. :D

    As for today, I spent the day working mostly, but my wife made a nice cake, and I got a couple of nice shirts too. It ended well.

    Thanks again!
