08:04 am - What a week
I read a comment on Crooked Timber 'What a week: birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate'. Plus tornadoes 'the biggest ever' in the US. Canada just elected the Tories. New Zealand had a hurricane tornado of its own. Northern Ireland is on fire, as is Texas. At least that Nuclear plant in Japan hasn't actually exploded yet.

Your birth link and your marriage link are the same - are you implying that this was a shotgun wedding? ;)

So depressing about Canada's election. Some very depressed Facebook posts from one of my friends as the night went on.

I'm pinning my hopes on the referendum, now.

I am going to abstain from that now, which is the first election ever that I haven't voted in.

It was a tornado not a hurricane. We get them fairly often, but this was a bad one.

Oh, right, sorry. BTW I think you must have a Vila for everything.

IKR?! Hopefully next week will be calmer.

Not to be critical, but apparently the New York Daily News headline on the Osama killing was "Rot in Hell." Don't hold back, New York Daily News writers. Tell us how you really feel. :)

Got back from Tokyo about a week ago. As it happened a couple of US nuclear engineers were in the apartment next door - seconded to help out at Fukushima. Didn't see a lot of them as they were working all the time, but they were confident they were on a long, slow haul in the right direction.

On a more positive note, Japan Rail has found that it has made vast energy savings simply by switching off the down escalators and not lighting the place up in the daytime.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself. And I think that if we hadn't gone now, the moment would have passed and we may never have gone. Hideously long flights there and back but worth it.
