Things I have

  • A mobile phone
This phone is just a pay as you go phone, so my number may become Yoko's as I hope to get an iPhone eventually, but until then — or probably not ever, given that we will be poor for the perceivable future — I have a phone number.

We've been around Milton Keynes now — it's a very green place and heavily wooded. In fact, it's hard not being able to see anything because of the trees. There are no billboards or store signs, so it's like a maze of trees until you come upon one of the estates or villages. There are almost no traffic signals, only roundabouts — everywhere roundabouts.

We went up to the Open University and it is, in fact, a real place. Much, much bigger than I thought, and much more professional looking than I imagined. I don't know why I felt like it wasn't a real place or that it would be some shoddy, hole in the wall where diplomas are printed on Inkjet printers. I'll put some pictures up, eventually.

Yoko and Naomi are holding up well, although Naomi is just very confused looking and little ill. I think the change in food, time, everything is tough on her. Yoko is doing very well, too. I am going to count all the times I hear someone say 'Oh, like Yoko Ono?' when she is introduced. The count stands currently at one.

Still, I miss Japan.
