after next week I'll have cemented my reputation with my fellow students as someone who goes for the weird, the uncomfortable, the sexually bizzare (at least in movies and literature).  I sent out the translation assignments for the book we're reading (at my behest)... a paragraph from page 18 of Kanehara Hitomi's Snakes and Earrings.  Love, tongue-splitting, tattoos, mascochism, and murder!  Oh boy!

that being said there's something really cool about taking your dog on a walk and finally being in complete harmony.  Apparently both she and I prefer techno to anything else for a fast walking beat.

We're getting ready for Turkey Day - Neil did half the hunting tonight (you know, that hunting where you go to the 1st grocery store), and we've started cooking things.  By things I mean Neil started the home-made cinnamon-vanilla ice cream (with real vanilla).  Tomorrow I'll do cranberries and clean something, and Wednesday we'll be doing veggie casseroles and veggie stuffing (we're doing THIS recipe because it made my mouth water when I read it).  There'll be 10 of us total there, which is the biggest dinner we've cooked since we came to Austin.  Not to worry though - we're pros.  Besides, all we really need to do is have enough wine, right?

Mysteries of Japan?
While only tangentially related to your post, I am try to find (in English) articles on the history of mystery/detective fiction in Japan. The Wikipedia entry was rather sparse and other websites have not been much better.
In the past, you did research Japanese popular literature. Did you come across any review articles on the Japanese mystery genre?

Oh, speaking of, is there anything specific you'd like us to bring? Pie, wine, a cat. You could have one, really. Er, okay, maybe not. *G*

D & Neil agree that you should definitely bring us a cat, but umm, would you mind skinning it first? That way we can pop it into the oven without too much fuss? ;)


oh, and that email I sent you? forgot to mention the mashed potatoes and gravy. *is a dork*

Umm, which method should we use? You know, because there's more than one way to . . . yeah. *G*

So, I should plan on gaining a few dozen pounds? ::sighs:: Oh, well, one must do what one must. *G*
