It was very cold in Nishinomiya, but not cold enough to stop the Cylons from ruthlessly murdering 4 Aussies!

Once again the local populace decided to celebrate my presence – and it’s not even my birthday yet!  My birthday constitutes week-long celebrations with dancing in the street, festival stalls, games for children and all sorts of events.  This time however, it’s just a simple interview in the local paper:

After fiddling my way through it I had a couple of goes with my PSP.  At first it didn’t work, but I didn’t give up.  I tried again to no avail.  Finally I combed the book once more for any insight and found something!  It was so simple, how could I have missed it?  So I tried, and then suddenly it worked!

Those kids are at it again, this time they recap the amazing events of a previous session.  LISTEN and be amazed at what you hear.  WATCH and be devastated when it all comes to an abrupt and unexpected end…
