This post has been brought to you by the letter J and the number 10

(1) Juxtaposition: I like making collage. One of my favorite things is size out of scale collage, the juxtaposition of two things out of scale so that one looks strangely large. Ah, if I only had the Photoshop skillz, but scissors and glue are pretty good too.

(2) Jenga: The tower game! I actually got this in our office's White Elephant gift exchange, but I love it like a regular gift. We play it now from time to time at work.

(3) Java! I drink lots of java, and produce lots of Java. Happily I get paid to do it (well, the producing part anyway). I will admit my coffee consumption habits are insane. I prefer it black, no sugar, no milk, usually with ice. No pop for me, coffee all the way.

(4) Jaga Jazzist: Some music I like to study and work by.

(5) Jyagaimo: Yeah I'm going to cheat. I don't know so many words that start with J. Whether they be mashed, boiled, roasted, crisps, chips, fries, or latkes, I am a fan of the potato. Mmmm. I like them enough to pretend they start with J.

(6) Jeans: Wear 'em every day. Yet another benefit of being a cube farmer...

(7) Jabber: Sweet chat protocol.

(8) Jet: Lets me go to the other side of the planet on a somewhat regular basis. A jet-ski would take WAY too long. Bonus - now I can fly on a jet immediately from my local airport. Not only propeller planes anymore!

(9) Jericho: Yeah, it started out cheesy, but I got drawn in and it was actually pretty good. For once, a show on American TV that seemed planned out from the beginning. Plus, it's got the end of the world with melodrama, plus nukes. Nukes! We watched this the summer the house burnt down.

(10) Japanese: My other language. Lets me cheat and squeeze potatoes onto a "J" list. Easy to read in.

Current Location: control room, chez mink
Current Mood: bouncyjumping
Current Music: Jaga Jazzist

Alas, no. The Java I produce is always capitalized - I meant the Java programming language :) I'm a computer programmer, these days most of the programming I do is in Java (though lately I'm working on some evil bugfix in Perl which has made this past two weeks insane).

I do sometimes get free coffee from my local shop though for being a regular...

We get SOME of the "odd" chip flavors at my local market but not the really out there stuff. For that it's all about if someone goes back to Japan and then happens to bring something to a potluck. Though, I have to admit I'm fond of the normal flavor of カール too, the plain or corn consomme ones. That and giant bags of 海苔巻きあられ :)

...I knew that!

I just got temporarily confused!

Sorry! For some reason I had a brain malfunction (heh, and now I'm getting coffee so I'm getting my coffee fix as well.)

Happy happy fall day... But it's not autumn! Hmm? Akibare is a state of mind, the feeling when you wake up on a crisp, fall day, the leaves are backlit shining yellow and orange against the blue sky, it's sweater weather, and you can do anything, absolutely anything at all...
