Another 25 words

A mediatinker tradition, one final writing exercise before midnight: recap your year in exactly 25 words.

Neon Chopstix now begun.
‘Twas mostly work but also fun.
Hosted friends from far away.
Another visa for three years’ stay.

And previous entries:2002 and 2001

New business, new friends, old habits, didnít organize well but made progress anyway, learned lots, forgot lots, resolution meter stands at 50%. How about you?

Sorry- no addition to the year in 25 words. I just had to write to say how natsukashii this has made me in a couple ways. I live in Cincinnati now and am searching for a realtor with the last name Benza and I came across this site when Googling to find her (BTW, if I find her, I’ll be sure to let her know her last name is slang for toilet seat). My wife and I lived in Tokyo for 18 months while I was on an expat assignment (3-98 ~ 10-99), after which we moved to Pittsburgh (Cranberry Twp, actually). I’ve spent over an hour skimming this blog and it’s great! Enjoy the new year and I’ll be sure to check back from time to time!
