Here comes the sun

Well, somehow I managed to miss the end of summer. I'm not sure how and when that happened but it is definitely gone. The last week, however, was a serious shock to the system. Not only did it rain, lots, but it also got cold! I couldn't believe it. Last Saturday the temperature dropped to 20 degrees (C) and I was thinking about testing out the heating in my apartment! Yesterday it rained heavily all day and many of the roads flooded (because drainage is NOT a priority for the road builders here). However, I can write about this because today is sunny and warm. Yay! We're back up to 30 degrees and climbing. Actually, it feels even hotter today because it's so muggy after the rain. Don't get me wrong, the cold and wet was deliciously enjoyable in it's own way, but I was hoping Jo would at least get a little bit of warm weather! Now at least that's looking a little more likely.

And because I'm in a very random mood...

Yesterday I bought a packet of Fusen gum, which is really good Japanese bubble gum. It was one of those mixed packs where you get to try all the different flavors (orange is still best). However, I'm now left wondering if the pack I bought was made specifically for the American market, because when I took all the mini packs out of the box I discovered a piece of foam inside that is used to hold the smaller pieces in place, and printed on the foam block...

Gah!

Foam and traces of peanuts in a peanut bag... what more could you want for a balanced meal?

Oh I got to write all about balanced diets in my exam today - apparently our case person with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes thought that eating fatty red meat and full fat dairy food with no veggies or fruit would be a good diet and could we explain what advice we would give... at least I could answer that one tho. :) 1 exam down. And the ship of fools clip was amusing too - good way to end my 1 night off before more study for next exam!

ooh...goodluck with the exams Kate, although I know you don't need it because of course you've been studying hard... ^_^

Yay for impending holidays!
