So we had another rumble of the earth on Christmas Eve, more information can be found
here at the august instituion the Japan Times.
In other news, I had quite the international Christmas dinner. 6 of us met at Outback Steakhouse for dinner and companionship. My steak, while probably horribly overpriced compared to quality, was pure heaven. I think any medium rare slab of beef would have been acceptable, I haven't had a steak since I've been here. And I must say that the heart attack baked potato was pretty damn nice too!
In our group we had 2 Canadians, 2 Americans, 1 Trinidadian (?) and a Kenyan. All meeting in an "Australian" restaurant in Japan. Now that is crazyness! After dinner we (of course) headed out to Karoke. Sang a few Christmas Carols, then launched into pop and rock. David (Canadian) did an excellent take on "Balls of Fire" and I of course did my usual "I've Just Seen a Face." A good time was had by all! It was certainly an eclectic celebration, but none the worse for its unconvetional qualities. Merry indeed.
