I'm back! From vacation ;-(
Isn't there always something a little depressing about returning from vacation?
We went to the beach with my extended family and had a wonderful time. In the evenings, we were introduced to a pretty funny show, Ninja Warrior. Ninja Warrior is a Japanese show in which contestants try to complete a pretty ridiculous obstacle course. A very animated and funny Japanese announcer gives the play by play, and English subtitles appear to clue us in on all the ridiculous comments.
Unfortunately, the deadline for submitting applications for the upcoming Ninja Warrior season was yesterday. I was really thinking of making a run at "total victory," but I guess I will have to train and await the next season in 6 months.
