Dispatches from Japan: Day 5

Man. From the news reports, it seems like the rest of Japan is completely covered in snow. By the way, speaking of TV, yesternight, in an alcoholic delirium, I watched a show about pi in Japanese. I understood about a tenth, but I learned something new: π stands for περιφέρεια (periphery—later confirmed by Wikipedia). Awesome. I also learned that there is a Japanese company called Okiham. Yes, they make ham.
