I tried This recipe, but the eggs turned out too raw.

*Gets dressed*

Oh wait, the eggs were meant to be cracked out of their shells. So I did the recipe right afterall, just too raw for my taste.

Which means I have to make sure the cake is done before we leave on Saturday. But that's not bad.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HERMIONE

So I tried to grill him pretty hard about the whole thing. He said you were really nice, and really energetic, and very focused. But he said very little about Singapore, or most of Japan. He focused on the Akita area of Japan (apparently it's a big hub of robotics, manga, and anime) and the area with the hot springs and eggs.

He was more focused on individual things: How much better the train system was in Japan, how peaceful is was to sit under the blossoming cherry trees, sipping sake from a box (he loved the juice-box style sake, and the vending machines that sold everything), and how much more comfortable he was wandering the malls and open areas in Japan than he was in the U.S. In Japan, people still understand being reserved and keeping to themselves. The U.S. is all about being loud, and boisterous, and intruding on other people's existence.

So he enjoyed the trip, he spoke well of you, but he didn't wax poetic about any locations in particular.

Except the eggs.

Interesting. I mean he has all the hallmarks of a geek, so yep Akita would draw him.

SG train used to be pretty reliable, but these days gets a little finicky.

Japanese are reserved people, but sometimes I do wish for a little more English speaking for English speaking cats.

So does that mean random strangers will talk to me in US? I'm shy ><

But that is because I am paid to do so.

LOL@English. Yeah, I was rather surprised when Hi told me that he pretty much lived in Japan using Google Translate and his smart phone. He said it worked really well when you did it one word at a time. He'd type in a word, show it to the person, they'd type a word back, etc. So the Japanese were at least extremely polite and helpful with him.

In terms of the U.S., it is far more that its citizens are completely unreserved and unabashed. If they feel like letting out a whoop, screaming obscenities at each other, or talking about their private medical conditions, they will do so. LOUDLY. And if you have a problem with it, it's YOUR problem, not theirs.

In the U.S., there really is NO sense of propriety among its citizens, and they take a great deal of pride in this. You WILL hear their conversations. They will make any amount of noise they please, and behave in any ill-mannered way they please, and as long as they don't invade your personal space, if you have a problem with it, you're a bad person.

So it's more, "Learning to ignore the <plural noun deleted> around you" than it is, "They'll walk up and harass you."

Though we have plenty of the latter as well.

I'm pretty sure a finicky train in Japan would be the most reliable form of public transportation in the entire US. As a whole, our public transportation system would generously be described as crap, with some pockets of not horrible dotting the landscape.

Random strangers talking to you? General rule, not really all that often, but yeah, it happens. Usually it's people just trying to be helpful. Occasionally, just like in the rest of the world, they have ill intent. People are people. The helpful v ill intent ratio is variable depending on where you are specifically in the US.

And yes, NH is also correct - Americans are apparently hard of hearing, so we talk loudly. All the time. But most of it wouldn't be actually directed at you. In the larger cities people are more uninhibited about talking to/around others. You get outside of the cities and it's a different experience.

Oh, and yes, Hi soaked in the hot springs. He said once it started snowing he was the only one in it. Which just shows we have Nordic ancestors. Who would've guessed?

Any public response I have to that is going to invite a large number of flaming bikes heading in my general direction. Maybe even a personal visit from Fritzy. That won't go well for me.

Good news for me, I just found out that I'm getting a raise. I expected to, I've gotten one every year, but it's always nice to know for sure. So 3% extra money for me to do the exact same b~&!#~#* as always. Whee!!

Thanks for sharing that!

After the dot-boom days of the late 1990s/early 2000s, I got accustomed to raises of 5-15% every year.

Then I joined Global Megacorporation, and was lucky to get 0.5-0.75%. They claim to have "upgraded" so now I'm getting all of 3% a year, and I had no idea how that compared to other industries; seemed pretty chintzy. But seeing a totally different industry giving the exact same raise says, "OK, 3% just isn't so bad."

I don't know if I'd say my raise amount is indicative of the hotel industry. I'm sure there are plenty of hotels that don't give raises to desk clerks, but this one does. Although the first year I got 5%, then either 3.5% or 4% the next year (I don't recall), and now 3% each of the last few years. Supposedly it's based on how well the hotel did, but I'm pretty sure we've made more money is the last couple of years than we did in the years I got the larger raises, so I don't know if that's really true.

People who stress out about being asked "So, what are you doing with your life?" when they attend parties/family gatherings are seriously overestimating how much the person who asked the question really cares about the answer.

Kudos for his climate adaptation. But you can stay longer in an outdoor hotspring then an indoor one. Not that I ever spent more then 4 min in a hotspring.
